BFP Due Date July / August 2018
« Reply #330 on: 29/04/18, 17:34 »
Hello peeps :-)

I think I might be the 'other Ruby' Dreamer?  Everything is OK here thanks - we're 25w 4d now.  My surrogate is being a star but was in Thailand for a few weeks when she was unwell and went to the hospital there - it was fine 'just' gastritis and has had to stop eating spicy food!  But it made my heart stop for a little while. 

I've just notified work as our EDD is 8th August.  I can't quite believe we've got to this point!  I'm taking the main leave but then changing it into Shared Parental Leave after 8 weeks so my husband can be off for a few weeks too.  This is partly as I'm choosing to keep working in another job I have for the duration (it's only very low hours but the money is needed).

 We're making massive house changes as we've lived here for quite a while and have acquired lots of stuff!  The nursery is still not cleared but once it is then we're going to decorate it. 

Has anyone bought anything yet?  I've bought a couple of small bits but nothing much.  I have been looking though and have been into Mothercare a couple of times and test-driven the prams etc.  I do now have a short list. 

Anyway - hope everyone else is doing OK?

Ruby xx

    Ruby100  - Sorry to hear your surrogate wasn't too well. Glad she is okay and it was nothing serious! I'm also doing dome Shared Parental Leave but towards the end. I plan on going back to work after 8 months and my partner is taking 1 month then. I've bought quite a lot now, Pram, nursery furniture etc and lots of clothes but still have a big list that we're working through.  :)

    Dreamer - Glad your back ache has eased & you got checked out. We decided to book a 4d scan as got a really good offer. We're booked in for Wednesday evening when we'll be 26+3. Earlier than I wanted but everywhere was saying to do it before 27 weeks as if they can't see anything they'll let you come back the week after for another try. Anterior placenta means ideally need to have it done before 28 weeks! Hoping to get some good pictures as he wasn't playing ball on our last scan so haven't seen him for a while.  :)

    Annilee - Excellent that your OH has cracked on with it. I might be painting a bad picture of my partner here, she is V excited just had a lot of things on this weekend so I was pushing it trying to get the nursery painted too. We're either going to start this week or get someone in to do it one night this week as we go to France thurs for a long weekend so I'd like it done before then. I want to get the wardrobe up so I can start sorting the clothes we've already got. Been out and bought more this weekend and got a feeling it's going to be a tight squeeze in there  ;D Have you bought much yet for the twins? I plan on working until 2 weeks before due date but really don't know if that is unrealistic. Boss is happy for me to move date as I see fit so just going to see how I am.

    Hope everyone else is good  :)

    Hello all,

    just a quick update had in laws funeral yesterday im glad its over been nearly 4 weeks since he died but feel we can finally move on with baby things. im 31 weeks this week and feel like we have so much to do in 9 weeks until he is here!! with my OH's father being so ill all through this pregnancy we havent really had the time or thought to do anything. I hope now we can slowly start to enjoy it.

    glancing through i saw some of you thinking of a 4d scan - we had one as it was on offer and liked it. We could really see our baby's face and features :)

    Im starting maternity leave end of this month Friday 1st June cant bloody wait!!! baby due 5th July so a month off before he arrives.

    Still being really lucky with my pregnancy although the last week or so ive got a lot bigger and movement is very regular now. I can actually see my tummy do 'waves' under the skin where he moves! if I stand up for too long or in a certain way I do get a pain in my right bum cheek! but apart from that my eczema is clearing up and much better.

    hope you are all doing well - time is going so quick!! I think my due date is the earliest on here? although i guess those with twins could come before? They wont let me go over because of my age?! (40) so i will be induced on 5th July if no sign of him appearing!

    Had my obgyn appointment today. Iam 24.1 weeks so perhaps iam due last, though because of my age i will be induced at 39 weeks which will push me from Aug 20 to around the 13 th. Iam to go for the diabetes test which i worry about as ive been prediabetic before. I cannot help but sneek the odd biscuit etc. Anyone had it yet? Dr said i have about a 50/50 chance of needing a c section. Specialist is on the 28th at the hospital so will know more then. Ive been feeling more movement which is reasurring.

    Glad everyone is doing well. Ive not bought anything yet except my mother got me a car seat and pram set.

    Xx

    Good luck hle. Is the drink they give you awful? I didn't like the idea of fasting thinking iam starving the baby. Before i went for the ivf i got tested and the Cyprus clinic recommended i go on metformin for my blood sugar. I took a lower dose than suggested as dr did not think i needed as much here. I was pre diabetic but not diabetic yet. Ive remained on a very low dose as wanted to decrease it but worry about it being high. Ive eaten better but still crave sweet things and bought vegan cupcakes the other week. Sent a family member to get me a doughnut even though i usually barely eat them. Also need thyroid checked as needed that sorted before the ivf also. X

    Clarabelle- I had mine a few weeks ago and have to have it again in a few weeks time. My appointment wasnít until nearly lunchtime so I was absolutely starving! The drink isnít nice but itís manageable. The consistency is worse than the taste, itís a bit thick. Youíve got 5 minutes to drink it so take your time and you should be able to have water afterwards to wash it down. Years ago they used to do the test with lucozade and that was much nicer but apparently thereís not enough glucose in it anymore.
    Try not to worry about the diabetes risk, thereís little you can do about it and if you do develop it then youíll be closely monitored and it can be managed. Iíve got pcos so am also considered high risk, even when not pregnant and have been on metformin for years. I came off it before pregnancy and my consultants arenít overly worried, they just keep checking my glucose just in case.
    My due date is the same as yours but waiting to see my obstetrician again next week to find out their plans for me re birth.

    Thanks Ruby81 Ive been wondering how everything went with your bloods and biopsy. Iam hoping everything went fine.
    True cannot do anything about glucose results but would get special monitoring. I certainly have been craving sweet things and know i should not eat them. My friend who had a baby last year at 45 needed insulin injections at the end of pregnancy and baby was fine. X

    Sally - Glad the funeral is over for you and you feel like you can now look forward to all things baby! That must've been really difficult for you  ^hugme^ Yes I think you're one of the earliest on this page. Can't wait to get to the point where the babies start arriving! So exciting  :)

    Clarabelle - I'm due in for the diabetes test in 2 weeks time as my dad has diabetes. I'm dreading the fasting part as at the moment my appetite is through the roof! Thankfully I have a morning appointment.
