Firstly OMG Congratulations Cobie biggrin.gif so very happy for you. I've been away on holiday for a bit so it's great to have you join us.


Not a lot to report here. Had a scan last Thursday. Just a quick scan to make sure everything was okay. Boys are still within normal growth range so the Obs is happy. I have another anatomy scan this Friday coming up. Nothing wrong or anything but just with twins they seems to do twice as many scans. They just want to make sure everything is developing properly. Mum will be over here this Thursday from Melbourne and my sister is flying in on Saturday. I can't wait to see them and it will be great as Mum will be able to come to the scan with me and see the babies.


up_the_duff - How did your Obs appointment go today?

Saw GP this morning, she sent me for blood tests and told me to come back when I've decided on a Obs. No idea how to decide on that! I have one friend who recently delivered at a hospital I'm considering, and another who will deliver at the other hospital in March, but I don't know how to ask about their OBS without letting on that I'm pregnant!

Congratulations Daybreak! How exciting! WElcome to the group and don't worry there's so few of us it's fine to be in this group, you're not far behind most of us anyway. As for an Obs I googled the names of Obs at my hospital to see what others said about them. There should be stuff on EB or other pregnancy boards.

That sux about the morning sickness Cobie do you find it lasts all day? I wake up feeling fine and I don't have it so bad I vomit but I am getting nausea, which is often worse at night (right around bedtime for the kids!). I have found the nausea bad these last two days and I'm very tired as well. I thought it was supposed to get better over time but I'm nine weeks now and I'm getting worse sad.gif I hope I can manage to not throw up!

Zina that is great about the scans and your mum being able to go as well!

Hi Ladies,

Welcome to the people that have joined the group and Congratulations! biggrin.gif

I have found it so hard to do anything lately! I have all day nausea which is a big shock as my first pregnancy was pretty cruisy.

How exciting and wonderful that your mum will be at the next scan, Zina. My mum and MIL came to a scan with my first pregnancy and they really enjoyed that.

Updating the list with my appointments

Zina - 24 January - Second Anatomy scan

Thanks, Zina, and everyone else too!
It's so hard not talking to people about this! I'm dying to just blurt it out to my best friend! I've told Husband that I probably won't keep it from her until 12 weeks, but I don't really want to tell her before our parents either.

Hi everyone!

Good to see you in here Daybreak, congratulations smile.gif

Cobie - that's no good with the morning sickness - hopefully it stays contained to the morning!

babynumber2 - I have the opposite - my first pregnancy was terrible for morning sickness, and this time I'm getting off pretty easily (touch wood). I do remember how debilitating bad morning sickness can be so I have great sympathy for you. I hope it turns around soon!

Zina - that's awesome news that the twins are growing well. Does that mean the twin to twin syndrome is easing (sorry if I'm way off base - I have no idea about twins at all!)

Dandy - our NT scans are on the same date. Would be funny if we lived near each other and happened to have our scans at the same place - and found out each others anons that way laugh.gif blush.gif

My update: Had my first obs appointment yesterday. It was a very big relief to see the little 9 week old bubs wriggling around in there still, that gastro really gave me a scare.
I've switched obs from last time and I must say I'm very happy that I've done so. I'm very confident in this one, he seems great.

This will probably give a bit of a hint, but c'est la vie! My obs has put me on low dose aspirin and also a daily calcium carbonate tablet. He also suspects from my weight gain (last time), my child's weight and the fact that they needed formula straight after birth due to their low blood sugar levels that I may have had undiagnosed gestational diabetes. So he wants me on a low GI diet now sad.gif Probably a good thing, but it really doesn't suit what I WANT to eat!

Must remember to go for the blood test between 10.5 and 11 weeks. I really don't remember it being that pedantic last time.

I'm already finding my clothes are getting tight. Using a belly belt on my work trousers, which is ridiculous at 9 weeks! I lent all my maternity gear to someone and unfortunately it came back without any of my trousers or jeans so I'll have to go shopping at some stage. I'm trying to postpone the inevitable as I know that maternity gear is flexible at the belly but less flexible at the arse, so I'm probably better off trying to buy them at the last possible moment. laugh.gif ph34r.gif rolleyes.gif

How can something so tiny make me so hungry and tired already?!

I just had to comment on this part because this was the exact question my DH asked me in the early days of both my pregnancies when I was practically dragging my head along the floor. He's an engineer so my tiredness/nausea didn't compute with the "to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction".

I think it's because that child in your belly is growing at an incredible rate right now and is pulling from you all the calcium, protein and other 'stuff' it needs to completely build its body. It throws your body's natural balance and cycles out of whack. One thing you'll be amazed at during pregnancy is the weird things it does to you; things which just don't make sense but go away almost immediately once the baby is out.

Also, the first trimester sucks. Like, REALLY sucks. All that exhaustion, nausea, bloating and nothing to show for it. Plus, you can't tell anyone. I disliked it both times immensely.

Once you start to feel your little one moving in the second trimester, you get some pay off which also comes with an easing of the symptoms (for most). Feeling those precious little bubbles scatter across your lower abdomen is indescribable. wub.gif

My favourite trimester each time was the third. Although I was huge, the nausea was gone, the tiredness easier to bear and I never, ever got over the joy of feeling my bubbas rolling around safely under my hand. I described it as almost magical because I could feel all the little elbows, knees and very VERY strong kicks (they really hurt sometimes!) but I didn't have to share him with anyone; he was all mine. What was also cool is that I could recognise aspects of their personalities even then! It's such an intimate, precious relationship that is over so quickly (not that it feels like it when you're pregnant).

Then there's the birth. My most favourite time of my life ever was when I was holding my two babies for the very first time, all slimy, fresh and oh, so perfect. Birth pain is terrifying; the after birth (for me) was spiritual... even though my second born crapped his black meconium all over the both of us. For the record, I didn't care - I was just glad all his pipes were connected. tongue.gif

You're in for an amazing journey.

Good luck, hun. wub.gif

Yep a lot is going on in there! Also your body now has 40-50% more blood to circulate. No wonder I am always feeling breathless.

PS. Nep you would know who I am. I have a clue for you: fireworks and Max Brenner wink.gif wub.gif
