Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Yep, I'm still here, just lurking occasionally! I am 28 weeks on Wednesday, woohoo, third trimester! I have an ultrasound tomorrow as I am taking part in a study and will also have another at 36 weeks. Then on Wednesday I have the GTT test. They have gotten rid of the one hour test here now and just...

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Hi pregnant mamas! I'm currently 16w4d. Pregnancy has been relatively easy so far, except for feeling ugly and fat as I started out this pregnancy 10kg over my normal weight and my skin is still getting massive breakouts, and being tired. We decided to book a private 3d scan to find out the gender a...

Re:

Congrats AMC! Are you starting to feel excited or are you still totally overwhelmed? DH and I aren't decided about a third. I am about 90% sure I don't want one, and that is mostly based on logistical and financial pressures so I understand where you are coming from. I just need to take a minute to ...

Re: "Just Barely" Pregnant PS''ers

Congratulations urseberry! What is your due date? I read 'up the duff' by Kaz Cooke during my first pregnancy and really didn't like it, so I don't have any book recs. I'm not really planning on reading any books this time round, as pretty much all the info you need can be found online and from your...

Re: The Official TTC Thread!

Pretty sure I got a BFP today! It was VERY faint, I was sure I could see it but it was VERY VERY faint. I think I went cross eyed looking at that test! I went out for a few hours and when I came back the second line was darker and more visible, but I am not sure if I should rely on that.

Well, I definitely wasn't pregnant! Period started on Saturday 12 September. Then I had a 21 day cycle, which is shorter than I think I used to have but I didn't ever really track them too much. We are not trying this month though. I was made redundant! I had a second job (contracting) anyway, but t...

I'm no help with charts evergreen. I haven't looked into the technical side of TTC much. We have a 3 year old DD already and she was only half-planned (I know that sounds weird).

Re: The Official TTC Thread!

So we are preparing to start TTC, so I ordered some HPT from ebay.... accidentally had the postage address set as my parents' house. Whoops! :oops:

I have contacted the seller to ask them to change it, I hope they do, we haven't told my parents we are going to start TTC soon!

Re: Wanting but Waiting...

I've had a summer baby and a winter baby. I'd take a winter baby any day. It's much better in terms of being heavily pregnant. And I'd rather worry about a baby being cold than overheating. I will say that with B, I got pregnant immediately. We timed baby 2 ASSuming it would happen again (we wanted...

But it's a contracting position, which obviously means that if I go on mat leave, they don't need to keep my job open for me. So bearing that in mind, I would like to maintain both jobs until w...

Re: Let's talk about maternity bras (especially above DDD)..
