Hi Ladies! How is everyone?

Discoria, BIG BIG BIG hugs to you doll. im so sorry for your but you have an amazing outlook on things given the situation. You are very strong and if there is anything to take from this terrible time its to know that you will be that much stronger and hopefully be even more closer (if possible) to your hubby. My hubby and I are very close and have gone though just about every test you can go through in life and he was my rock and just made me fall in love with him all over again. Sending you peacefull thoughts hun. glad to hear that everything cleared naturally and hope you are back to ttc soon! xoxo

Smiler, how are you hun? Im not too familiar with home births and all that since I have yet to make it far enough to even look into but I hope that no matter what path you choose, that you and your LO are happy and healthy

Liles, sooo ohappy to hear that Simon is thriving and that you guys are doing well. Is he a good sleeper? Hope you are getting rest and loving mommy-hood!

Withlove, hope you are doing well!

babybemine, I too feel the same way with seeing pregnant women everywhere and hearign about pregnnacy annoucments too. Hope that you are able to get away from those that keep asking you about babies and you are able to breathe.

to anyone Ive missed and hope everyone is well!

AFM~ just got back from a wonderful vaca with my hubby. Although it really wasnt a "vacation" it was still nice to get away. To not have to think about dr's appts and bloodwork and US's was nice for a week! lol had an appt with my RE this morning and he did an US. Everything looked great and my hcg is now at 24. I had 3 follies on my right and I think 2 on my left and he said that everything seems to me working just fine. We are going to wait one cycle and then start trying next cycle. He wants us to do natural for 3 months and then we will go from there. I will more than likely be on lovenox shots with my next pregnancy as well. From the looks of it, I think I should O within the next week or so but I have no idea what CD I am lol. Oh well, keeping my fingers and toes crossed!

AFM. I had friends over yest, I had no time to tidy house day before so I got up at 6 and stayed up to tidy it in between simons feeds and pumping,
bad idea, I went into mini meltdown with poor OH last nt, I was so tired I was crying.
OH took simon but he couldn't get him to settle and simon was crying.
I had been giving out over not getting help or sleep so OH kept tellin me to go to bed , he would mind him. but all I could think about was simon cryin so I was crying !!
I came downstairs about 10 times saying just give him to me.
then OH got odd cos I was implying he couldn't look after him (which I kinda was cos I know I could have settled him ).
so que big fight and laura having mini meltdown.
don't u just love hormones !!!!

Awwww Lilesmom It's ok to have a barney every now and again!!! How are you feeling today? I'm sure real friends wouldn't mind if the place was a tip - you should've left it and waited to see if they offered to do some tidying haha I guess there are bound to be days where the baby just won't settle and people will get ratty with each other. And in your case especially of course you're going to be a little anxious and over-protective of your little one. But I'm sure this kind of thing is totally normal, you're still adjusting to life with a baby. I fully expect to do similar things lol And yeah of course hormones settling back down are bound to be part of the problem. But ultimately I'm sure everything will be fine (at least that's what I keep telling myself!!)

How is everyone else doing? I hope you are all ok. Mommylov I'm so pleased you had a good holiday I hope it was good for you to get away from everything for a little while xx

AFM I'm a little annoyed - the MW rang me yesterday and said my iron levels are still too low. Not too bad, but not where they want them to be. This happened 6 weeks ago at my 28 week appt and since then I've been taking supplements. So for them to still be too low is really annoying because she said if my levels don't get up then they won't let me have a home birth Hopefully continuing with the supplements will get them where they need to be, but since it's already been 6 weeks and I only have 2 weeks til my 36 week checks I don't know if I'll get them up to where they need to be. If my 36 week checks aren't good enough they won't let me have a home birth. So I am really frustrated!! Of course I will do whatever is best for me and for baby but still, it's really disappointing

I paid for it with tiredness , ha ha. bye bye pride
my iron was low ish while preg, I was on supplements , I was only on one every second day cos my iron was only alittle low, it never went up just didn't go down more.

Hey everyone,

how are we all doing? Hope all is well xx

withlovemom you know I found it so hard to determine when I was feeling movement but once I realised I was, the best way I can describe it is like a muscle twitch. So not pain - if it's actually painful I would agree with Lilesmom that it's your tummy growing (which is still a great thing! Shows s/he is getting bigger!) but if it feels more like a twitch then it could be baby. Like do you ever get twitchy thighs or calves after exercising, do you know what I mean? When they just 'jump' in one small area of their own accord...not sure if I'm explaining it well but that's what the baby's kicks felt like to me.

Lilesmom I'm so pleased to hear things are going well Can you really believe you have a baby or is it like he's always been part of the family? On the one hand I can't imagine having a baby but then I think of my niece and nephew and it's like they've always been with us, if you know what I mean! Sounds crazy

AFM I'm a much happier bunny The MW came round on Saturday to check the suitability of the house for a water birth and the first thing she did was apologise for being 'off' the last time I saw her. She has a student MW with her and apparently as soon as I left last time, the student said "don't you like doing home births then?" and she realised she'd been quite negative and she didn't mean to be at all. She explained she'd been working 6 days in a row and had been on call, and was knackered so she was really sorry if she put us off at all as that wasn't how she meant to come across. She is always so lovely and friendly it was easy to forgive her I know she works hard.

So anyway this time she was much more positive and we talked over everything and made me feel a lot better. I just need to get the iron up. At 28 weeks it was 10.6, at 33 weeks it went DOWN to 10.4 but at 34 weeks it went back up to 10.7 so it's going the right way. Needs to be at 11 minimum. At the very least DH is pleased to have an excuse to have steak for dinner

Morning Ladies!

Smiler, thats great that your MW is back on board with a home birth for you! Understandable that she was tired from working 6 days in a row and Im glad that you were able to forgive her for being a little curt. Im so happy for you hun!

Laura, how are you and Simon doing??

Withlove, Im not sure what kicks feel like but from what Ive heard, its more like bubbles or gas lol I hope things let up at work for you too so that you can rub that bumpb of yours and talk to your Lo!

Discoria, how are you holding up hun? Continue to stay that strong and pos person you are doll!

babybemine, how are you doing?

to anyone Ive missed!
