Hi ladies,
Cupcake so glad you had that harmony test first- it's such a relief it's available now. I have a feeling your bubs will be fine- the nuchal test was normal after all but some women's hormones play havoc with the BT.
You are so right about taking a hard road to a baby -- i hate to say it but some ladies don't know how easy they have had it !!!
I hope once the results come in you can start to enjoy being pregnant. For me it's only now that I can feel bubs rolling around that it actually feels real (plus my belly which has popped).

Broody,how is your girl going? I have been thinking about her now im going to be 28 weeks-that she is such a fighter being born so early. A true miracle.

Mk I can't wait till you have the IUI. I will be cheering you on x

Hey Aleja! Fia's doing really well, thanks! She's been off oxygen since Monday and so far so good. Still has desatts at times (they're almost always after feeds)(but not after every feed) but she's so good the rest of the time that they're happy to leave her off. Taking a few feeds with a bottle everyday too and was 5lbs 7oz at last weighing. So thrilled with her!

Here's a pic of the little smiler! (although it was probably just gas!)

The nurse on Friday thought it's be at least another 2 weeks but we'll see. She has to stop desatting and be taking all her feeds from bottle/breast. Then she must pass her carseat test (spend a few hours in the seat without desatting so they know she can keep her airways open while she's in it) Don't want to push them for a date because then I can't be disappointed if she's not home by then, iykwim?

Hey broody Yes of course there is no point hurrying them up until Fia is well and ready to come long. What is desatting?

Desatting is when the oxygen levels in her blood go below 90%. It's usually caused by shallow breaths, breath-holding, not absorbing enough oxygen into the bloodstream etc. Now that she's bigger her lungs are also bigger and so she's desatting much less. That was the reason she was on oxygen for so long - she used to have a few deep desatts every day where she'd drop way down to 40/50 or even lower sometimes. Was scary the first few times because they're colour changes too and they turn quite grey. Amazing how fast you get used to something though! Her last big desatt was almost a week ago now so hopefully we're almost out the other side! Dr just came to give Fia her first vaccinations - she was such a brave girl!

How are you feeling Aleja? Can't believe you're 28 weeks already!

MrsP - how's Penny doing?

MrsG - how's your little bean doing?

Cupcake - hope you're not finding the wait for the results too long.

Mk8, Brassy, Lily, Truly - How are you all doing? Can't wait for the next bfp!

Aww broody she's so cute & that looks like a smile to me! her weight gain is brilliant! Hope she gets hope soon

Penny is fine thanks, she had her vaccinations this morning & is needing lots of cuddles this afternoon, not a happy girl! But she's coming on great, was weighed 2 weeks ago, still only 7lb 8oz lol. But her face is filling out & her thighs. Smiles a lot on a morning but unfortunately colic on an evening & she screams!
