Hello,
Was wondering how everyone was?
Congratulations WR83!
I'm 33 weeks now. My diabetes is under control with metformin now but bump is huge so had extra scan on Thursday which indicated I had a lot of fluid and got growth scan on the 12th. Still I am now on 2 weeks leave before starting my maternity so me and little man can finally start to rest and get ready as still haven't started nursery.
Just want him safe in my arms now!
Hope everyone is doing well X
woody

Hey Woody, do you know what your AFI is? (Would be written on your notes I think) mine is 30.5 which just puts me in to moderate polyhydramnios (excess fluid) - i've had all the tests and am fine, baby has had the ultrasound tests but will need a tube down his throat within 2 hours of birth to check for a blockage. Baby is also off the chart big (est 6 lbs 10 oz at 33w 6d) I am hoping to go in to labour before my due date and they will do my first sweep at 38 weeks. Nursery is complete, hospital bag packed, I look full term and would just like to get on with it really! xx

WR83 your photos are gorgeous, congrats and hope you are well and happy xx

Hello everyone I'm loving hearing how you guys are getting on. Jack is doing well he is on actimal pepi as he was becoming unwell with diary. He has been a lot better on the diary free milk. He chats away and sleeps most of the time. I love his cuddlesxxxx my beautiful babies :) :P

Hi everyone, I just wondered how everyone was getting on. We had a bumpy few weeks, started contracting at 33+5 and fibronectin test was positive so had to go up to delivery suite and have nifenidine and steroids for baby and spend a few days in hospital. Luckily the nifenidine worked and baby is still safe and I'm now 36 weeks. I've got to take it easy so currently lying in bed whilst hubby is decorating the nursery.

Had another scan yesterday and baby is 5.7lb. Water levels still rising but she checked for blockages as much as she could and said it is probably because of the gestational diabetes but it's another worry.

They aren't letting me go over my edd due to needing metformin to try and control the diabetes so in 4 weeks at the most I'm going to meet my little boy but they said because of the +ve fibronectin I'm still classed as high risk of him coming earlier. From what they've said/what I've read though a negative fibronectin test is very reliable to confirm that you won't go into labour but a positive is much less useful so it's just a case of waiting. I found out whilst in was in that I have strep B so staying at home til I'm quite far into labour isn't an option now but as long as he's safe.

Claire, how are you? How are your amniotic fluid levels? Are they still going to do a sweep at 38 weeks? He's certainly a big boy! You sound completely ready, once we've got the nursery done I think we are too. Got my bags packed now. I didn't have anything packed before so hubby had to throw some stuff together-he packed jeans and the tiniest knickers I've ever seen! You have to laugh! Went and got some feeding bras yesterday too. We don't know whether I'm going to breastfeed yet but I don't want to not have them then need them. I was measured 34F! Never been an F!

How are all the babies coming along?

Pink princess, congratulations on your pregnancy!

I hope everyone is well xx

Morning ladies... Just checking in and catching up!!

Claire... Was hoping to see your BA... I'm hoping Hugo has arrived safely?! Can't wait for an update and sneaky pic!!

Fowkes... How are you doing? What a beautiful family you have there, you must be so proud of them! How are you getting on? Are you managing much sleep with Jack? Emily tends to just wake once or twice for her night feeds now but her reflux is pretty bad so still having to keep her upright for a good hour and she's still sick... Muslins are my friend!! Emily has been on aptamil Pepti 1 for 7 weeks now and waiting for paediatrician appointment to check for allergies as we may have to wean early due to the severity of her reflux. She's 10lb11oz now at 13 weeks so she's gaining slowly but she dropped 2 centiles onto 9th so trying to build her back up!

Pink princess... Massive congratulations to you on your pregnancy! What is your due date? How is your little one?

Woody... How are you doing... Are you resting up? I'm really sorry to hear of all your added worries and complications... Pregnancy sure is tough! Have you been given a date for induction?

I hope everyone else is getting on well, it's gone very quiet on here!

Emily is doing really good other than the reflux but she's still pretty dinky but starting to fill out now. She amazes me every day and her smiles just melt my heart... This really is what true mummy love feels like! We get out loads as she loves being nosey! Sleep during the day is pretty non existent haha! She's over 13 weeks old already and DH is already talking about having another :shock: but I'm more than happy and feel complete with one and wanting to just enjoy our little fighter for now and the foreseeable! I've not disregarded another completely so am tracking cycles, which have been regular but not for at least another year... Can't believe I'm saying that!

Love to all! xx

Hi all,

Sorry for not keeping in touch, all good here - William is 8wks old tomorrow, where does the time go! My eldest is 2 next Wednesday as well, it all happens so quickly!! They continue to look ridiculously alike and in the picture below of the side by side babies, William is on the left and Thomas (at Williams age now) is on the right so you can see for yourself how alike they are! Thomas adores his little brother and William can't keep his eyes off him when he is moving (like a whirlwind most of the time) around him! William is getting bigger and his head/neck control is amazing (as you can see from him having a sneaky sit in his big brother red chair tee hee). He is on 6oz bottles and sleeps fantastically, at night we are getting 6 hour stretches out if him some nights which is amazing! I think I am actually coping with 2 under 2 a lot better than I thought I would and currently am hinderance by having chronic sciatica for the past 3 weeks resulting in 2 trips to A&E, physio and currently on a ridiculously high dose of drugs inc diazepam just to enable me to stand up for more than 5/10mims without crying! So actually once that's better I think handling 2 kiddies when not in pain will be a walk in the park!!

Hope everyone else is doing ok and best of luck for tomorrow Woody - so exciting!!! Xx

Few pics for you:

Woody our babies are birthday twins !! Hugo was bon at 2.26am, hope you are feeling ok hun, congratulations xx

MrsA Emily is gorgeous and go for it, def try for another, so glad I did :) In the end I had a good birth, I used low dose epidural so I could still feel what was going on but was easier to breathe through contractions (was on the drip too) at midnight I was 4cm and then it went very fast and 2 hours 26mins later he was in my arms, still can't believe how small he is compared to first son, 8 pounds 5.5oz is a good weight but he seems so tiny to us xxxx
