    That sounds awesome! Some of my friends had that done, but you have to go to a city nearly 2 hours away and I am bad with long car rides lol.
    Good luck! I can't wait to see pics of your little one :D

    Had scan yesterday baby looks great an healthy. Growing like SHE should be! I was a little worried about growth or fluid because I'm not growing. I haven't gained an ounce and have no bump still at 19 weeks. But I guess that's just the way it is for me at least for right now. I'm wanting that bump... People keep telling me I'm a "lucky one" I don't feel
    Very lucky. I feel sad that there is no proof other than ultrasound pics telling people I'm pregnant.

    But my day will come the drs are making sure I know that. Lol

    We are team PINK!
    Her name will be Brooklyn :)

    I was just thinking we have been a bit quiet in here recently!

    Over here everything is well! We still dont have a name but starting to narrow it down so i think we are getting somewhere. I look and feel huge, I have put on about 17lbs but with my daughter I went from 116lbs to 164lbs but luckily lost it all within a couple of months so hoping it will be the same this time.

    I have a new (old) car too! My ford focus was taken away by the wreckers to be destroyed :-({|= and now I have a toyota camry wagon. I never saw myself driving a wagon but it has plenty of space for the double pram.

    Not much else to report except that we ended up in ER with my dd last night after her elbow became dislocated! She was holding her granpa's hand and fell, and he pulled her up by the hand to stop her from hitting the floor, and dislocated her elbow in the process. They popped it back in and she is as good as new. I've pulled her up by the hands so many times and nothing happened, but poor Grumps feels very guilty atm!

    How is everyone else doing?

    Ouch, your poor girl! That sounds painful. But glad that they could just pop it back in!
    How are you liking your Toyota Camry? :)
    Woohoo on being closer to a name!
    Steph, I bet that you look fabulous!

    I can't think of anything exciting from my end. Well actually I have finally starting feeling movement!
    Anyone starting to look forward to the third tri and being that much closer to holding their babies?
    How much baby stuff has everyone gotten so far? We will finally order our travel system and baby carrier this month. I think after that I will just need to pick up the little things like clothes.

    We're good here. Some warmth for once. I'm due to be done with work at the end of the month and just can't wait! We're still thinking on boy names. I'm not getting a cot or a pushchair this time. I'll have a Moses basket for downstairs and a cradle for upstairs in case baby wants to sleep in them. If he does, I'll get a cot in time. I've a few clothes but need more. I've loads of cloth nappies in small sizes and birth to potty sizes. And I'm a carrier addict: I've 3 ring slings, two woven wraps, a gauze wrap and an onbuhimo (it's like a mei tai with just straps at the top that are very long).

    And this has to be the wiggliest baby ever!

    I hope everyone is doing well!

    I had a different OBGYN for my appointment on Wednesday and she was the biggest b*itch. She told me I was too fat and she was not going to use the doppler because we wouldn't hear it. Excuse me?? I have heard it since 13 weeks!! She also decided to set me up for an early gestational diabetes test because I MUST have diabetes because I am so FAT. Honestly, I am not skinny but I am certainly not fat and I take very good care of myself. I have low blood sugar and I monitor it regularly and it is well within the healthy range. She didn't even bother to look at my chart and just decided things based on how I look. And then put me on high-dose blood pressure pills because it was up a little. I have a kidney disease which makes my blood pressure run high anyway, it doesn't affect me, it is normal for me and I have specialist to contest to that. But she didn't care. Oh! And she also "decided" I have pre-eclampsia based on nothing accept not being skinny, and told me about how I will have to deliver my baby very early and the risks of him not making it. Again, she did not read my chart to see that my "symptoms" are actually from my disease that I have had my entire life. My baby is healthy, and I am according to my doctors and my other OBGYNs.
    She was very rude to me and my fiance, and rolled her eyes when we said we were not married when she asked.

    I don't plan on ever going back to her. She's awful...

    /rant over lol

    MY GOD that is awful!!! I am so sorry I assure you I am WAY heavier than you hehehe and my doctor doesn't even mention my weight. Obviously it is a concern but he doesn't bludgeon me with it at all. That is so terrible. This lady is a quack. You seem to have no luck with ANYONE in the medical field and I am so sorry for that. There are wonderful doctors out there but then there are these jerk doctors. Do you know the doctor that did this to you is EXACTLY the reason why overweight/obese women do succumb to their curable diseases because they shame us into thinking because we are fat we don't deserve proper medical treatment and make us feel so horrible about ourselves that we will suffer with sickness/diseases to avoid the shaming they bestow upon us!!!... This makes me very angry. My awesome former GP used to tell me all the time that I was healthier than most of his normal weighted patients. Weight does not mean unhealthy. Sometimes very skinny people are completely unhealthy. it's all about how you care for yourself. Genetics do play a huge roll in weight and because of that people tend to be heavy without overeating etc. Not every fat person eats a gallon of ice cream a day. My gallon of ice creams lasts at least a week!! hehehe Sorry trying to lighten the mood. This makes me so angry that you were weight discriminated.

    Do you know ALL forms of discrimination have some kind of group that fights for their rights but Weight discrimination seems to be the only "acceptable" form of discrimination. WHY is that? shouldn't all people be created equal including size. Not all of us are lazy, overeating, slobs. I have been big my whole life. Never been skinny. I was a 9lb 13oz baby and I just went up from there! Do I have moments of overeating sure EVERYONE DOES! but I don't do it daily. I try to eat as good as I can and not over induldge. But I'm still huge.

    This really disgusts me. I wish you could report her to someone this doctor should not be in practice!

    Doctors here are just sooo focused on weight. I have a friend who has a lot of health problems and weighs 80 lbs but the doctors don't care because he is thin! Multiple doctors have also refused to even examine my Mother because they say she is too fat for an ultrasound or other tests, honestly my Mother wears an XL shirt at best and size 18 jeans... so what is wrong with this doctors???

    I have been told I must eat all of the time as well, I wear a size 20 jeans and an XL in men's (because I have an H cup and women's shirts don't fit) and I don't consider that all that huge. It bothers me when people think I eat a lot because I am a recovering anorexic, the biggest I wore in high school was a size small in men's shirts which were baggy. But people can't seem to get that into their heads.
    And you are right, you can be healthy and bigger, it just depends on the person. People are just ignorant.

    Lol gallons of ice cream don't last long at my place, my fiance just grabs a spoon and goes to town on it lololol he eats all of the time and eats horrible foods, but he is 6'2 and 280lbs and apparently that is fine according to doctors lol :dohh:

    Maybe it is just where you live? because I have been VERY fortunate with doctors but I am also the type to tell the doc "listen, I know i'm fat let's just get that out of the way... I know I don't always eat the best but at the end of the day I'm fat because of genetics and being a picky eater!" LOL I am very straightforward. if a doc gives me grief about my weight I just find a new doctor who is more compassionate. I didn't try to be this way. I wear a size 26/28 women's clothes. (baggy) because even with my growing belly I have plenty of room to grow. But I am not ashamed of my size. I try not to over induldge in the bad stuff. I tracked my food intake for years and know that I maybe go over the calories once or twice a week when I went out to dinner with friends or something. I know that my family has a history of obesity both from my father and mother's side. I know that I am a picky eater who basically starves myself (not anorexic just lazy) all day until I get home for lunch or dinner then eat. I am not a breakfast person because I usually just can't put anything besides water in my mouth before 10am. I eat dinner WAYYYYY too late at night. All these things contribute to my size. Overeating was never my problem. I don't binge eat when upset. In fact when I am upset I won't eat for days because my stomach will go sour. But meanwhile I am like 2 of you! hahaha So what the heck is wrong with these docs? I wish i could fit into an XL I would find way more options of clothing to wear lol

    Wow, you seriously need to report that doctor! Not reading your chart and giving you a very serious diagnosis based on looks? Insane.

    Glad to hear that everyone's doing well though, it was quiet for a long time! I'm 22 weeks today and I have my "20 week" appointment on Monday (was supposed to be last Monday but the doctor was on a delivery)...he said at my 17 week appointment that it looks like a girl, so hoping to confirm!

    Manda, the end of the month is getting closer! :D

    Larval, that doctor sounds like such a jerk. Hope that you can avoid her in the future.

    Joey, congrats on team blue! :happydance:

    Anchor, almost time for your ultrasound! Be sure to update us!

    I'm counting down to V-day too, but feeling movement helps keep me calm.

    Appointment was postponed an hour (he's in surgery)...somehow I'm not convinced he'll be back in the office when they say he will, and then who knows who they'll see when? I really hope this doesn't take all day, don't have time at all!

    Delivery options aside, this is really making me want to switch to a midwife (which I'm strongly considering anyway)...but I want my scans first. :)

    Okay, it didn't take too long. Everything's good, measurements are on track and there's plenty of fluid/space. I'm not showing yet, so I'm relieved to hear that's not affecting things. Baby had its knees together so couldn't get a good look, but didn't see anything to change the original guess...better luck next Monday at the anatomy/anomaly scan!

    Storked, I've two weeks left from tomorrow. But I am thinking of going to the doctor to get signed off. Getting in the floor with my little patients to do their obs or having to get down and prepare drugs on a coffee table, not to mention stairs...I just don't think I can keep it up much longer on someone else's clock when I can't just rest when my body says so.

    Glad to hear all is well, Anchor. If you've a midwife there, are you not referred for scans? I'm midwifery led care all the way but have had scans, as needed. x

    Hi ladies, can I join you? Was worried about finding a group till now, but feeling brave at 25 weeks! EDD is 2nd Nov, and we can't wait to meet our rainbow baby x

    My siggy pretty much says it all - 8 years TTC number 1, 6 losses, tried every med going, clexane, progesterone, aspirin etc, none worked. My consultant told me about an intralipid infusion for RM that we could have done privately and the rest is history as they say, it seems to have done the trick and me and DH are ever thankful and over the moon at things finally going right for us.

    looking forward to sharing this with you all lovely ladies xx
