    Annilee, Congratulations wow.  ^pinkted^ ^pinkted^

    I was really hoping you had made it to 30 weeks too. Iam so happy you were looked after so well and c section was not that bad. I will most likely need a c section. First babies of july/ august. Xxx

    Appointment at diabetic clinic was a bit overwhelming. Nurse was nice, though explained risks that scared us. Like what can happen if baby is too big from too much sugar. Dietician seemed stern and information too much to take in. Iam to take a monitor home and test 4 times per day. I even ate what i was told and blood sugar was too high at breakfast. I worry i do right things and it still remains too high. X

    Clarabelle- Perhaps once your body adjusts to more of the new regime the blood sugars will adjust and react to each meal. Have you phone support from the clinic? You are past halfway now so relatively you have come this far and you CAN, so do the rest of this journey. Once babe is born then hopefully all will be back to normal.

    Is everyone in the UK enjoying their bank holiday? It's great here as got DH home to help out so I can rest and just be with the kiddies before the arrival of their siblings. Fancied looking round a car boot Monday, but not sure I'll be able to make it physically. Having to stop and sit down every 10-20 meters. Dammit!!

    Thanks ended up in tears again after high readings again. Even pumpernickle bread ( told to eat)with cheese, and a few grape tomatos and olives spiked it, and well as porridge without sugar and soy milk. Then last night i had pasta, beans lentils, and sprouts and was very high. Dh tried to calm me but iam trying so hard and everytime its high i think its bad for the baby. Ive not eaten sweet things for many weeks. Not sure iam eating enough food anymore and almost no fruit. I have the dietican's email so maybe i will ask for advice but thought i was balancing food properly.

    First appointment at the hospital with specialist on monday at 28 weeks for a scan. X

    That's harsh as sounds healthy, is it because there are carbs perhaps and your body is particularly sensitive to them right now?

    28 weeks is great :)

    Hello everyone,

    Annilee!  Congratulations!  how are the babies and how are you?  xxx

    Clarabelle, I'm sorry to hear you've developed gestational diabetes - are you on any medication? It's carbs that push your sugars up and pasta is super bad for doing that.  Try low carb or potatoes rather than pasta.  Rice is the same.  Well done on 28 weeks!  Not far now . . . xx

    Dreamer. - yes lovely to be off and super weather, DH and I sat in the garden today with the dogs. xx

    AFM, I've been super stressed due to a work issue last week, really upset me.  Anyway am off this week and trying to concentrate on baby - 30 weeks on Wednesday and meeting up with our surrogate tomorrow :-) can't wait!  It's feels as if we're really into countdowns now as just 5.5 weeks left at work for me after I go back next week.  By then I would like all the nursery done etc as we'll be travelling to where our surrogate lives at 36 weeks.  She's also having a sweep at 38 weeks.  DH and I went on a bit of a spending spree this weekend and we now have bought a cot, Moses basket, wardrobe, travel cot and snuggle land pod.  Still can't decide on the pram but I'm siding towards the Silver Cross Wayfarer.

    I really hope everyone else is doing ok

    Ruby xx

    Hi everyone, I havenít posted for a while but have been following.

    Annilee, many congratulations on the arrival of your girls. Itís fabulous that you were in good hands at such a scary time. I hope that your babiesí time in special care goes smoothly. First babies on this group! I look forward to hearing all the advice on how to cope with twins xxx

    Ruby100- great to year that things are going well. I have a colleague who has just had a baby daughter with a surrogate. He and his husband brought her into work last week and it was so beautiful seeing them as a family.

    Clarabelle, sorry to hear about the diabetes- that really sucks. I hope you soon find foods that help you to stabilise. I am sure that they will monitor you carefully and your baby will be fine.

    Sallysmiles, good luck with your decision around induction.

    Dreamer, great that things are going well with your twinnies.

    Lollipops - I really hope that you relax into it as you get further and further into the pregnancy.

    Afm- my twins seem ok. I will be 33 weeks on Wed. Had a scan last week and the boys weigh 4lbs each. I am more tired and work (teaching) is a struggle now but I think I am doing pretty well. The double pram (we went for mountain buggy) is taking up a lot of room.....

    I feel really bad moaning about this im 35 weeks on Thursday and last night I noticed stretch marks. I really thought i was getting away with it and always thought if i got them i wouldnt care because im pregnant and after all these years of trying and treatments I wont care. But I do! i dont think it has helped that I struggled a bit yesterday in the heat I did some gardening not a lot but probably over did it a little in the heat. My ankles are massive and i didnt sleep well last night as I was too hot and I was short of breath and kept waking myself up.

    Im actually feeling sorry for myself and all through this pregnancy i said I wouldn't do that, i wouldnt moan as I have the one thing I have always wanted.

    Im hoping this is my hormones?!! Im so grateful to be pregnant and have had it so easy so far with no problems no sickness.  My OH is doing my head in a bit as hes can be a lazy g*t and the 'nursery' is not a nursery yet thats doing my head in.

     I feel im suddenly 35 weeks pregnant and not ready :(

    I cant believe im having this baby soon and its suddenly hit me I think.

    Sorry for the rant I didnt know where else to moan!  I finish work on Friday so I am looking forward to that im planing on not doing a lot!

    Had a terrible experience on monday. It was first appointment with the specialist at the hospital as turned 28 weeks. Getting the scan went fine for the first half , and happily got to see baby. Then they wanted an internal scan and had not been warned so due to our anxiety we asked to put this off a few weeks. Meeting the doctor she was very direct and just went through how iam so much higher risk for all complications because of my age, gestational diabetes,high blood pressure,pre clampsia,pre term labour, stillbirth etc. Then said its even higher with donor egg too. She seemed annoyed and impatient. Did not have a good bedside manner. I just cried after as she scared me so much and made my already anxiety 10 times worse. I even cried the following day at my regular obgyn appointment though she was much nicer and said the hospital doctor is just not a tlc kind of doctor. My blood pressure and baby's hearbeat was just fine thankfully. Iam having the internal scan at 33 weeks so they can check the placement of placenta.The diabetes had also been on my mind as even eating what i was told numbers are too high. Ive not been able to control diabetes so far, and even gone hungry many times. Even a slice of pumpernickle bread and cheese sends my blood sugar way over the limit.  My next appointment is again at the hospital for the diabetes on the 5th. Emotionally its been a hard time. I just want my baby to be healthy. X
