    Oh I should update... I’m 16 weeks!!!!! Yay! The hyperemesis seems to be gone so I’m very very glad for that! Still haven’t been able to gain back the weight I lost, but I’ll get there.
    It was a rough week. I had a ton of cramping all week and then I lost part of my mucus plug... which freaked me out but turns out it means nothing. I see my OB Wednesday and hopefully everything is going well.

    Ttc, we also dont get paid maternity leave. We get a maksimum of 4 months unpaid, however we have to contribute monthly to the unemployment fund, by law, so when we need we can claim from them when we arent getting salary. This is Africa so they are pretty slow in paying us, Ive been on leave for 6 weeks and have only received payment from them for 6 days so far. Better than nothing I guess.

    So glad you are feeling better!! :) I would freak out if I loose my mucus plug especially so early. Thank goodness didnt loose anything with both pregnancies. When are you finding out the gender?

    I go in about 4 weeks! I’m excited! Another boy would be super easy but a girl would be fun too. I can’t wait! It’s a happy happy thing either way!

    Here, I think we get 18 weeks paid leave. They have been increasing it every few years. I can’t remem what it is now, but you only get it if both parents work. So because I’m at home I get nothing. Except they’ve recently brought in that all new babies are entitled to $60 per week for the first year and if you earn under a certain amount (we don’t) it continues for the next 3 years. Hubby will get 2-4 weeks paid leave not taken from his AL, but that’s only because the military like to pretend they care about families haha.

    Wow I’d hate to share a room! They have a few shared rooms at our local hospital, but it’s apparently very rare that you’ll end up with someone else in the room with you. Single and double rooms have their own bathroom with a toilet and shower. When I was there for my OB appointment I saw they had a sign on some new fold out couches that they weren’t to be moved or used as they were currently updating their policy on partners being allowed to stay, so hopefully that’ll be sorted by the time this one is born.

    I’m feeling ok about another boy. I think they’ll be great friends (DH is already talking about putting a secret passage way between their bedrooms haha). It’s going to be super cheap with hand me downs because it’s the same time of year as W. Plus we have trucks, trains, tractors etc everywhere haha toys, books etc. but even though I’m exhausted and don’t want to think about doing this again, I would really like a girl, but I’m not sure I’m keen to risk it haha I’ll probably end up with 3 boys.

    But we had a name picked out for a girl, but I’m super stuck for a boys name

    We dont have to share a room at our hospitals here. The spouses can stay on those fold out couches.kids cant stay though.

    When I had my gallbladder attack in 2013, I had to share a room and HATED it. I'm a people person and hated it. I can not imagine it in a post partum or labor situation being better. Oy. The hospital changed that right after my attack.

    I am excited with you TTC, cant wait to hear what babys gender is :D

    Sarah I agree with you on another one, but for now my body is so done with having babies lol

    To be honest, it wasnt bad sharing a room in hospital, first time I was alone but this time around I shared the room. It was nice either way, I wouldnt pay extra for a private room.

    I am so proud, Liane is 3w5d today and we got the first real smile, actually she smiled 3 times, she is so cute. Liezl on the other side is a lottle devil at the moment, shes got croup and cutting 4 molars now, its hel living with her moods and tantrums atm. I am so freaking tired.

    Nita, Ford is in that awful tantrum stage too! He screamed for an hour in a waiting room yesterday. I feel for you with a little newborn and still recovering from surgery.

    Gosh what a week it has been. Liezl started running a fever early this week, despite having croup she also got ear infection, shes been getting it every 2 weeks since November. Finally her docter said its time for grommets, he reffered us to an ENT that very same day we got an appointment, he had space open that next day on his teatre list, so she got Grommets on Thursday. They found some blister thing in her ear, she must have been in so much pain. They drained it while inserting the grommets. She is better now, lets hope it gets better from here.

    Liane is 1 month old, like woah, where did the time go? She seems like a happy go lucky baby, drink, sleep, poop no other issues.

    Sorry I’ve been MIA, this pregnancy is really kicking my butt. It’s so much harder than last time. Even when I had pneumonia and was working, it wasn’t as hard as this. I’m pretty sure my bump is the same size as I was at 40 weeks with W. I’ve gained weight much quicker too. And W just wants to be carried, teething badly with molars and just clingy. We’ve almost weaned though, I think I’ve dried up and he’s not interested. I’m definitely leaning towards the RCS at 38 weeks with how I’m feeling at the moment.

    Wow such a rough week Nita. Poor Liezl, she must have been miserable. My friend’s boy got grommets and she said it’s been amazing. He’s hardly been sick at all since. Wow a month already! That’s just flown by.

    I’m so sorry you’re feeling so rough Sarah. I feel like every pregnancy just gets tougher. I’m very happy to have another baby but I am wiped out.

    What are the odds that 4 of us came from the TTC group, strugling with some kind of infertility and eventually end up having a baby, then just surprisingly have another... something about this thread LOL.

    Welcome back rickyandlucy, so good to hear from you again and glad your pregnancy turned out great. Congratz on the new baby.

    Sarah, when nr2 is here things will be better. It was much harder when I was pregnant than it is now to just care for 2 babies lol

    Congratz TTC, glad everything is going well. I suppose your other boys are happy to have another brother?

    My hubby keeps on hinting that we should have another go at a boy, but I am just like nope. Going back on the pill at the end of June.

    I’m so sorry Lucy. Congratulations on the first birthday!


    Sorry life has just been crazy busy here. Nothing exciting to report. Baby number 2 seems to be growing well. My bump is massive compared to last time. I’m almost 33 weeks and definitely bigger than I was at 40 weeks last time. I’m having a repeat c section. My scar hasn’t healed properly internally and I’m at a high risk of rupturing. A VBAC is out of the question. Which is ok. It is what it is. Freaking out about the recovery with a toddler who is very much a mama’s boy.

    Hope everyone else is doing well!
