Hello Everybody
 
Sorry I haven't read back, but it's been 10 days since I was last online, so no personals and a very quick "me" post: 
 
My waters went early in the morning of Wednesday last week, 15 June when I was 34+4.  I went down to the Heath where I spent 6 hours in the assessment unit as they rang round all the other hospitals, looking for somewhere with 2 neonatal beds, as their own unit was full.  It wasn't looking good, and they had got as far afield as Birmingham  but with no luck.  Eventually, the Royal Glam got back to them saying they now had room for me plus 2 in neonatal, so I was ambulanced up there. Meanwhile, I had started contracting, and there was a bit of a wait for theatre (I was down for a section) but we eventually got in at about 7pm and Alys was born at 7.20pm weighing 5lb 8oz and Thomas at 7.21pm weighing 6lb 13oz.   Thomas had to spend some time in special care, and Alys on the photobed due to jaundice, and we have had some challenges around feeding due to this and their prematurity, but we all came home last night.  They are gorgeous!
 
I really hope everyone is doing well, and will try and catch up with you all over the next few days.

awwwww vixxx- congratulations!!! i wasn't expecting that!!!  ^idiot^  i just assumed you were busy!! So when was your original c section booked for?
 
So glad everything is now ok- and you are all home safe and well!  ^hugme^ ^hugme^
 
tonia vel- i am  near llanelli, sorry i can't help with the silver cross- not looked into them too much- look lovely on google though. The ultima sounds very similar. i am not going for a moses basket wither so will be using the carrycot in the lounge for day sleeping.
 
Mari- mw went really well, need to drink more water but apart from that all ok, heartbeat strong she said. size is good- but i feel huge- maybe because i am so short.  next mw appointment at 30 weeks- my word!!!! got a consultant appointment at 28 weeks though.
 
Kara- how has tyler been since the mmr? Bless xx  We should have a meet up in the summer hols- we could meet in carmarthen. Do you still meet up with the ladies from ivf wales?
 
mariclaire- i am going for the non fixed wheels one i think!! went into M&P this morning after accu to have a look and it is still my favourite- actually i love it!! she gave me a price quote and i nearly fell through the floor. Ok it has everything- not quite the kitchen sink but everything else- 800. Dh mouth dropped too. So thats the chassie, carrycot, buggy thingy, car seat- (all fit the chassie) a stand for the lounge, an isofix base and a breatheable matress for longer spells/night sleeping ohhhhh yeah and not to forget the insect net lol so going with dh tomorrow to have a play, see how it moves, folds etc etc sooooooooooo exciting!!!! here we go!!! will probably try a few others too just to get a feel.
 
 
well people say i am blooming! i am still tired though- came home and been in bed for 3 hours- maybe the week is catching up with me. Could be the cidp adding to the tiredness though too. 4 day week next week due to the strike- think i will clear out the kitchen cupboards!!

Hello Everyone!
 
Thanks for all your best wishes - it really is lovely to hear from everybody!
 
My original EDD was 23 July, and I was due to get a date for my section the day after my waters went - consultant said it was likely to be 38 or 39 weeks.  Needless to say, I never got a chance to have that conversation!  I really thought I wouldn't come that early - maybe because my DS was born at 40+2 so I thought we would get to at least 37 weeks this time.
 
Sundancer - are you under CF in Cardiff?  I was and thought she was very good.  And big congratulations on reaching 24 weeks!
 
Juls - yes, I thought I had a good few weeks of maternity leave left to get things sorted out before they arrived.  Turns out not!  We have got most things but I hadn't had a chance to sort them out.  The big thing we hadn't done was change our car... That's going to be a bit of a struggle now.  I had also determined to be a better FF and post more, but now am, absolutely exhausted and while I do read (while I'm feeding the babies) it's not so easy to post.
 
Mari - how are you doing?  Getting things ready?  Hope you are ok.
 
Kara - hope Tyler is feeling better now after her various spots and jabs and you are able to chill and enjoy the weather.
 
Tonia - sorry, I don't know about the Silver Cross - I've got a Baby Jogger City Mini.
 
Hope everyone else is well and enjoying the weather!
