@ Chanti: How are you and has baby arrived yet? How did the maternity shoot go? What cloth are you using? I bought hemp/bamboo/flannel flats with PUL and fleece covers. A few AIO's and pockets for hubby and getting excited to use them. I had to go for the glucose test as my amniotic water is on the higher side of average but the tests all came back normal and everything is fine. They will hill keep an eye on the level and hopefully it does not increase.

@ Carien: I am so glad that the training course worked out for you as I can only imagine just how stressful it was. SO you have about 2.5 weeks before baby arrives? Your maternity shoot sounds awesome and it's going to be so much fun. Enjoy every minute of it.

@ Reece; how are you?

AFM, have had a terrible flu for almost 3 weeks now and dies a slow and painful death as could just not shake it. It is slowly getting better but I am so drained. I am currently 31w and things are going smoothly. My appetite is not so big and gaining 500g a week but in total I have only gained 6/7kg, which baby will probably be the same size as my first born which was 2.8kg.
I have been way to active and all over the place and family and hubby said I better calm down or baby will come sooner. So I want everything done by 34w then I can relax.

So who has had their babies already and who is still due?
1. Salemein - 14 June
2. Reece
3. Chanti
4. Carien
5. JayBee - 13 Sept

* TTC baby #1 for 1.5 years
(tried naturally for 1 year - anovulatory cycles)
(medicated Fertomid cycles for 5 months)
BFP - 1 Sept 2015 - un medicated cycle

TTC baby #2 - October 2017
BFP - 3 January 2018

Hello ladies hope everyone had a good weekend.

@Jay-bee - hate being sick while pregnant, this has definitely been my pregnancy where I have been the sickest. I have had conjunctivitis twice now, bronchitis once and a couple of colds, not to mention the weird and wonderful skin conditions I seem to have every couple of weeks. I do have to say that since I got the b-12 shot, things have gone better. My doc has also asked me to go get the whooping cough vax asap so that my baby can get some immunity against that, even if just a little. Dont know if you guys are going for that, apparently its a new thing...mostly b/c of anti-vaxxers and the fact that b/c of them serious viruses that have been dormant/dead for years are coming back now. Anyway, I have some strong opinions on that, but will keep those to myself.

My maternity shoot this weekend was interesting...really completely outside of my comfort zone, but at no point did I feel uncomfortable with the photographer, so at least there is that. She said she would need about 2 weeks for editing so hoping we get some good pictures. I am not good at seeing myself in a positive light, especially with things that come to my body...but I am willing to keep an open mind with this...

Anyway, not much else from me, this week I am starting to work from home more often to just make sure this little girl stays put for 3 weeks. Today in 3 weeks we will have a newborn. In all honesty, she just needs to stay in till the Friday before, but after the training, my doc thinks I will go into labor that weekend, but lets see, maybe everything will be fine and she will come the Monday as planned.

Hoping everyone else is doing well :)

@ Carien, so you have also been so sick, terrible hey! No I have not heard about the vac but will definitely look into that. You must be counting down the days till little lady arrives.

AFM, trying to finish everything by 34w so that I can relax and out my feet up. Been way to active. Also my amniotic water has increased slightly again but doc doesn't seem phased about it so I wont let it bother me.

I am due the 13 Sept but think baby will come between 38-39 weeks like her sister

* TTC baby #1 for 1.5 years
(tried naturally for 1 year - anovulatory cycles)
(medicated Fertomid cycles for 5 months)
BFP - 1 Sept 2015 - un medicated cycle

@Jay-bee - you are so much more organized than I am! I still dont have my nursery done and I am 38 weeks today! We did put up the wallpaper border this past weekend, just one thing to say about that, putting up wallpaper is not for sissies! We only had a border to do and it was challenging to make sure its right, told my husband if we ever do something from top to bottom we will get a professional to do it!

I called about the blinds today, they said they "hope it will be ready by the end of the week", and the bedding will hopefully be ready by Thursday, so hope by the end of the weekend we will have everything in her room. I have washed all her clothes and just need to put them away. I have to say either the arrival of a girl is imminent or we had a pepto-bismol explosion with all the pink stuff.

I am counting the days to not be uncomfortable anymore, but I am also just trying to stay calm so this little girl stays put. She needs to stay in through next Friday, after that anything is fair game, but I have to get through that training. I am working from home this week as much as I can, but am still quite busy - which I prefer actually, and it does keep me mostly off of my feet.

Not sure how all the other ladies are doing? If I remember correctly @Chanti is scheduled for a c/s on the 26th (its also my husbands birthday :) ), then after that its me on the 6th, then @Jaybee I think you are after that. Initially, I felt like this was the longest 9 months of my life, but now looking back I think it actually went fast.

Anyway, nothing else really to report from my side, hope everyone else is doing well :)

Hi Ladies,

Apologies for my quietness as well over the past few weeks. I was constantly busy trying to get the final prep done before baby arrives. As well was busy with work and handing over to a temp.

Finally went on maternity leave as of the 1st of August and pur boy was only due by the 21st of August, but he obviously was so excited to meet daddy and I, and was born at 4h40 on the 2nd. Weighing in at 3.150kg and 49cm tall.

He is absolutely perfect and I am just super stoked to be able to spend the full 4 months with him.

For all of you still waiting to deliver, hang in there, you are almost there!
