Beach baby we dont do 3 hr or 1hr tests here! Just a 2hr and failing that gets you diagnosed! I had my test last weds and should find out the results tomorrow at my midwife appt. Luckily i managed to keep the drink down until after the final needle then i vomited the whole lot back up. That stuff is soooo gross and really makes my reflux play up something shocking! So i have to constantly taste it as it keeps coming back up the whole 2 hours making me gag

Hopefully if i dont get diagnosed i wont have to do an early test next time around like i had to this time! Twice in one pregnancy is just nasty

Cookie sorry to hear the placenta is still blocking while you are moving around! That would be so frustrating!!

I am not sure when to pack my hospital bag, thinking maybe around 34 weeks.

Waiting - so glad your MRI went so well! Such a relief for you!

I can't beleive i am hitting 31 weeks already! Hopefully only around 9 weeks to go! It hit me today how close it is when i realised i only have 5 weeks work left if i stop at the point i was planning to!

So itís been quite a while since I have been on. I have been so busy and just trying to sleep/rest/relax in my off time. Babyís room is starting to come together, although we will be sleeping in something similar to a next2me for the first few months. Itís a Halo bassinet and the base slides under our bed so baby is right beside me.
We just hit 31 weeks! Pretty exciting stuff. Had a growth u/s yesterday and baby is measuring pretty big at 4lbs 11oz. Which makes me nervous... but itís just an estimate and hopefully baby will even out and we wonít have to deliver earlier than 39 weeks.
I start my biophysical profiles (bpp) next week. If the score goes below a 6 out of 10 they will schedule the c-section.
We have had a crazy heat wave the past few days causing my ankles and feet to swell A LOT! Just hoping for some relief from that soon.

Hi ladies!! We've just come back from 10 days out of town. It has been HOT!!! oh my how I love my a/c!

Not long left now, the summer months always seems to go so quick too. Everyone sounds like they are doing pretty well. I did my GTT the other week and that was fine, but they did a urine test at the same time and apparently I had a UTI, so I just finished a course of antibiotics for that. My body is weird and I seem to be able to habour infections with no symptoms :S Anyway, all good now hopefully.

we have a co-sleeper for the first few weeks and then a bassinet for in our room for a few weeks after that. We have to turn the toddler bed back into a crib in the baby room, but that shouldn't take too long, just have to get DH to do it...

My next appointment is this Thursday and I'll be graduating to the low risk clinic! I think they'll do one last scan at the high risk clinic and then transfer me over. I feel like everything is likely to be ok now. Not sure what to expect after that but I'm really excited for hitting 30 weeks this weekend as 19 years ago my mum had my twin brothers at 30 weeks and, besides some initial minor complications, they are both totally fine. I'm at the same hospital now and have a singleton, so I'm feeling good.

Cookie, I feel ya on the anterior placenta. It's a little nerve wracking as soon as I start thinking about it. In my moments of panic, I've been giving it 10 or 15 minutes and if I don't feel anything I have something sugary and then try again. My LO seems to have a pretty regular schedule which helps I think.

It's been rather quiet on here as of late, hope all of you are doing well. I just found out, because of my preeclampsia, my doctor will be inducing labor. It's a little scary thinking about it, but it also means that I won't be completing the full 40 weeks which means I'll be meeting the little one sooner than expected. Haven't gotten a induction date yet, but I'll let all of you know as soon as I know.

Hi ladies!

LilFooshFoosh yay for moving to low risk! That's so exciting!

Mickels that is exciting you will get to meet bub earlier! Hope the induction goes really well for you.

I have been diagnosed with GDM from my GTT surprisingly I passed the fasting level but failed the ones after the drink. MW thinks I will end up on meds due to failing both the sugar ones, but I have to do diet controlled first and see how I go. If I end up on meds they will induce me at 38/39 weeks apparently but I'm hoping I can just diet control!

Started my fingerprick tests yesterday, and so far they have all been well under the limits, so I am hopeful that will continue! I am holding onto hope that I only went over cause I don't generally eat much sugar/carbs (didn't even realise how little in carbs I eat til the dietician diabetic class this week supposed to be eating 2-3 at main meals and 1-2 at snacks 3 times a day apparently, and I realised my main meals generally are 0-1, occasionally more carbs at dinner but only maybe once a week and I dont really snack.. at all.. oops) and so my theory is not eating much sugar or carbs my body just couldn't handle the overload of that drink! could be wrong but time will tell I guess!

Hope everyone else is going well!

Sorry to hear you failed the GTT lightning - I too am doing the finger pricks but have ended up on medication as it was my fasting results that were always too high. Only base meds at the moment, two pills with dinner and some insulin in the evening. Managing to diet control the rest of the day. Hopefully you can manage it with diet alone!


How is everything going with the preE Mickels? No issues yet?

Glad you have made it out of high risk LilFoosh, that must be a relief.

I am still waiting to find out my section date, it wont get set till I have my 36 week growth scan in 3.5 weeks, it could be 38 weeks or it could be 39 weeks, will definitely be before 40 though. It feels so close and yet so far at the same time!

So exciting, I can't wait for my next scan on the 26th of July. We'll then see if bub is laying in the head down position and if induction will even be possible. Doctor's not keen on doing a C-section, because the anesthesia could make my BP rise too high or fall too low, so we have all fingers and toes crossed at this point

Luckily I haven't had any problems thus far, accept for a UTI compliments of the protein in my urine from the preE. Other than that me and bub have both been doing really good

Sorry about the gd ladies. Fx you can manage it. Diabetes runs on both sides of my family, so my eating habits are similar to yours Lightning, people always think it's weird at first when I turn down fries or pizza but I never feel well after eating that stuff.

Waiting, I thought I'd get my section date or at least schedule my hospital registration at my appointment yesterday, but the doctor ended up having to deal with an emergency, so they just did my BPP and scheduled me at the low risk clinic in 3 weeks. I'm hoping to get my date then. And talk to them about birth control and endo control options for after baby.

I'm glad things are going smoothly Mickels.

Anyone having a shower? Or had one already?

Sorry I haven't been updating


I passed my glucose test, we have a scan scheduled for a heart echo scan. Hopefully they will show us our baby again. We haven't seen him since may and may not see him again unless medically necessary until he's born! I'm set up at the birth center in our state. Gap Insurance has been accepted so they will act like the birth center is actually in network! (Saving us about 2 grand) My hubby took some pics of me on our baby moon. I'll try and post them! I hope everyone is doing well!!!!

Sorry Iíve been MIA.
Havenít had the best time recently! Turns out the awful pain Iíve been having that the doctor has been telling me was indigestion was actually my gall bladder! I ended up severely dehydrated with my liver being affected and was hospitalised. Seeing a surgeon today to decide on what to do going forward but weíre hoping to manage it with medication til full term as opposed to delivering early, just need to keep little man nourished thatís their main concern! Nightmare lol.

Glad everyone else is well though! I love those photos Michelle xx
