Hi Everyone How are we all feeling? Sorry I havn't been on the last week things have been really hectic with DH going away. I will update the timeline shortly. Well I have hit the magical 12 week mark and nausia seems to be gone now woo hoo. Still a bit tired today but I only got 3.5hrs sleep last night so that would explain it. I have a bit of a TMI question. I'm wondering if I have a UTI the last few night when I get up and need to go to the toilet in the middle of the night and feel like I need to go really bad get there and nothing comes out at first or at all and it feels a bit uncomfortable. I've never had one before but figure thats what it might be. Through the day is fine no problems. Any Ideas??? I have my first midwife appointment tomorrow so I will be asking her then and can't go to the GP today as I'm not sitting there waiting for 2 hrs with 3 kids in a doc surgery.

Kerry thats not good the Kye has to have ventolin poor little thing. Well Chris is sick at the moment has a runny nose and a cough. Thanks to the girls that picked it up from childcare. Mel I cant say specifically where he is on here lol. He is in the Middle East but not specifically in Afganistan but another country near by lol I got a call from him at 10 past midnight this morning letting me know he arrived safely. I was already up anyway as Chris woke every hour last night with his stuffy nose poor little thing. I'm so tired today after getting up to Chris all nioght then the girls both came into my bed at 5am and Steph did not want to go back to sleep and wanted to play little bugger. Oh Mel that sounds so cute Jess does things like that to Chris he loves when she plays peek a boo with him
H Everyone I'm starting to feel better now not feeling much sickness at all. I'm 12 weeks on Saturday Woo hoo here is hoping it all stops soon. I'm not as tired either but I can see that not lasting. DH left for the middle east today so things were a bit crazy here today. Poor DD#2 (2 years old) took it the worst and was screaming when he left. It broke my heart. Well hope everyone is feeling better soon
Mel how exciting about the rings. We got ours when they were like 50% and 80% off with mid year sales. Daniels only ended up being $80 I think I forgot to mention I did our invites for our wedding. Got all the stuff when it was originally going to be a bigger wedding so spent more than I had to but definatly cheaper. I got fancy paper for the writing to be on and made it double layered with thicker paper on the bottom(lol great explaining there) then printed the writing on at home and stuck them together. Chris also has tinned spaghetti and baked beans and he absolutly loves them. I also put mixed veg in there sometimes for something a little extra. Well Daniel left today. Sent the girls off to childcare for the morning like normal for tuesdays so we could do shopping and all the running around quicker. Picked them up after lunch and he got to spend a few hours with them before going. Poor Steph has taken it the worst, was screaming when he left poor thing. She is already in bed...
Kim, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss and I wish you all the best for the future
Hi everyone Havn't been on the last few days. Our stupid modem carked it. Posted by: MarniT If you don't mind me asking - if you chose to have a Nuchal Translucency Scan how old are you? The reason I ask is that my doctor said because of my age 28 that it really was not worth having as my risk factor was really low....but reading that so many people are having it done has made me wonder if we have made the wrong decision. I'm 27 and will be getting the NT scan done. I think if you are unsure what you would do if the unfortunate situation came up that bubs has down syndrome then regardless of what you doctor thinks get the test done. If you are 100% positive that it does not matter then there is no point in doing the test. For me I have 3 other kids to think about in the equation so if there was a problem I want to know and be able to make an informed decision. And after going through what we did with DS at 21-22 weeks preg it was really hard and I really wish I had the NT scan ...
Poor Will it's not good when they are sick. Hope he is feeling better soon Well we decided not to send Jess on this excursion. So she will just have to spend the day in Steph's class. The thing that really annoyed me is on the permission slip it stated the bus was fitted with "Child Safety Restraints". which to me indicates a car seat or similar not a normal seat with a lapsash belt.
Mel - A the moment I like Charlotte and Oliver, I liked Charlotte when I was preg with Chis so i'm still happy with that might change on Oliver not sure yet lol. Congrats on the wedding. We had a really cheap wedding as we had to move t forward when we had to move states. Had the wedding in a chinese garden along a river it was really nice. Then had lunch at a nice cafe restaurant. Only had immidiate family and close friends to keep costs down. So was pretty small maybe 30 people but was so much easier especially since I was 8.5 months preg with Jess at the time. Can I ask your opinions on something. Jessica's class at her new child care centre are going on a trip to fairfield city farm in a few weeks. Now I know she would really love it BUT Daniel and I are really big on car safety and Jess is stil in a Maxi Rider in a 5 point harness. Now they are going on a mini bus (ABC childcare bus) and they will be using normal seat belts. We are going to go look at the bus tomorrow as it'...
I booked in for my 13 week nuchal translucency scan today. I thought it was at 12 weeks but they are doing it at 13 weeks. Alissa - It depends what your doctor has referred you for usually the reason you would go for a 12/13 week scan is to do the nuchal translucency which measures the nuchal fold (back of babies neck) to determine the chances of having downs syndrome, you should also get a blood test done which put together gives you a risk factor. I strongly recommend getting it done unless you are 100% certain you would keep the baby no matter what. I didn't get it done last pregnancy due to timing and regretted it at the 21 week scan when DS nuchal fold was measuring thicker than it should have been and as we did not have the 12 week scan to go by ended up having an Amnio.
Sara - Wow 9 months that is so long. My DH is also going over to the Middle East he's in the RAAF. 4 months is long enough although there is a possibility it will be longer. I am so not looking forward to him going. I just hope the time goes quickly. I'm sure it's normal with the not feeling so sick. With my last pregnancy I was extremly tired the whole pregnancy but the first 2 it was no where near as bad
