    Hi all!

    How are you all?

    Starting to feel nervous now knowing that I only have just over 8 weeks left. Not so nervous about the labour, yet lol... but knowing Im going to be totally responsible for a little person is scary!

    I am definitely ready to meet him and if he can get here safer coming early, I am ok with that!

    We chose the chicco keyfit30, I have heard nothing but good things!

    Hi girls! :wave:
    How is everyone feeling!

    SarandrewBean - I am getting nervous too. Chris and I have started going to classes at the hospital, we did 3 classes on Labor and Delivery, infant care is this week and I have a Breastfeeding one later in the month. Trying to get as prepared as possible.

    Tricia - we are going to go with the Chicco Keyfit30 as well. Did you get the Chicco stroller or a different one?

    AFM - last week I have another appointment with my high risk doctor for measurements. He said everything is looking pretty good, he was just concerned about my amnio fluid being on the high side. More fluid = bigger baby. He was thinking about having me do the 3 hour glucose test just to be sure that it was GD causing this. My regular doctor did not believe it could be GD so he is just going to be monitoring me more closely. I have an U/S scheduled next week and then another 3 weeks after that. Hopefully everything will be OK. They did some 3-D pics at my last appointment too, its amazing how much like a baby our little Peach looks now!

    We ended up with the actual travel system so we have th stroller and all :)

    It is amazing how much the little one can change in such a small amount of time! We get to see our little one again on the 10th.. Crazy to think that depending on that scan there is a chance I might meet him next week!

    AFM - had my showers over the last couple weeks and my nursery furniture finally came in. We have a few more of the big purchases to make but we are getting excited!!!
    Honey prayer - you mentioned you were going with a butterfly theme, which one did you go with? We are doing a butterfly theme too - Lamb and Ivy Raspberry swirl set.
    Had another scan last week and everything is looking good other than my amniotic fluid that is still high. Have another scan in 3 weeks. Doing NSTs every week and then will go to twice a week towards the end. We finished our Prepared Childbirth and Newborn care classes and signed up for the BF class on March 5th.

    It's getting close!!
    We are also good. Just time to waste now, everything is ready, just waiting on our little one.

    2 days! Csection is booked for Wednesday 19th Feb due to the GD, 3rd csection and now my blood pressure is creeping up and I'm on meds for that too.
    Must say I can't wait to be med free!

    We did do a butterfly theme but didn't really get it as a package. It was more stuff I picked up here and there and put it together. I have to say it turned out beautiful :)

    I have my cervical stitch coming out on Tuesday so getting nervous. Baby can come anytime :/ feels like I'm losing my safety net lol I hope she stays in for a few more weeks at least.

    Is everyone getting excited?

    How are you all?

    Twinmummy how's your new arrival? Are you recovering well?

    AFM I'm getting annoyed I can't do anything with DS any more. I want to take him to the park and get his hair cut, normal stuff mums should do, but I'm having to get OH to do it more and more.

    Hey ladies. Sorry I haven't updated!
    Zane was born at 3.15pm February 19th. 38w, 8lbs 9oz and 21.25 inches (or so google tells me haha).

    He had trouble breathing after birth and was grunting and has been in special care ever since. They think he had a little fluid in them due to the cold csection and also that they may have been slightly immature :(

    He's in the humidicrib and had cpap on night 2 which gave him a small pneumothorax. Thankfully that cleared up on its own and didn't need draining! He's jaundiced but just scraped in to not need the bili lights, so should clear up soon. But he's a very cute shade of yellow at the moment :haha:
    This morning had his drip removed and oral gastric feeding tube taken out as well. Had his first breastfeed today as well and has been the most settled he ever has. He just wants to be snuggled :cloud9:

    He's so close to being on room oxygen now, so that's the next goal to wean that down.
    Then hopefully full suck feeds, then open crib, then rooming in with me, then home!! Not sure how long it will take, but he IS going to get there because he's our little fighter!!

    My induction is booked for a week on Monday, and I have almost 100% confidence I'm not going to go any earlier. I'd be shocked to go into labour naturally in the next week!

    Kind of wish people would stop jumping the queue, though ;)
