My oncologist visit

I went to the oncologist today to check on the ovary growth. He seemed very unconcerned and a little baffled as to why I was referred, having seen much larger tumors and having dealt with far more serious cases every day, I think. He had looked at my u/s records and medical history and basically said there's no need for intervention and it's not cancerous. Yea! I thought this would be the case. He even thought the tumor might not need to be surgically removed after the baby, which would be fine with me. I've never had surgery and I don't want to start now!

The little bean is starting to "flutter" inside and I can feel it at night when I'm resting on the couch, after putting Ginny to bed. My big u/s is in 2 weeks, so I'll keep you posted. Thanks for all of your good wishes!

geez thanks steph Lol I *think* (or is that hope hehe) that it's just one and I am probably just as far as I thought not any further. I showed early with Maddi so I think it's just what my body does but I am 9 weeks and it is totally obvious, has been for a few weeks.

Of course if there is more than one we'll be perfectly happy with that and we'll cope Smile we'd just have to buy another car and seat and cot and everything! which we hadn't bargained for! I think it's my aunty that's put the idea in my head when she said that there are twins in the family but it hasn't shown up in a while... and I did get a rather obvious BFP at 9DPO.... ah I'm driving myself crazy!

My new mantra: It is ONE healthy little baby! ONE healthy little baby Smile

Hi girls!

Just saw this thread!!

Oh my god Stef!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! So excited for you!!

I'm so freaking clucky it's not funny. Thank goodness i'm already pregnant.. thats all i can say!! Lol

I have been very busy with maternity photo sessions, and newborn ones too. These teeny tiny babies make me so anxious to meet my princess!!!! (if anyone is interested pics are here: www.flickr.com/photos/danni1 )

Latest on my pregnancy. Babe is breech which is strange. I know she still has a while to turn, but it's still a bit freaky. Caleb was head down the whole way, and engaged at 31 weeks.

I'm also measuring rather big which is something new. With Caleb my belly was HUGE, but i was measuring spot on. With this one, my belly is rather compact some days and feels huge others. Anyway.. scary news is that she is measuring 3 weeks bigger, so 31 weeks at the moment!!!! :shock:

I hope that rate of growth slows down, as i really don't want a big baby. I was happy with Caleb being 7lb 3oz.. and i want to order another little one!!! She has so many pretty tiny clothes, and i wanna get some wear out of them!!

Anyway, enough rambling from me. Hope everyone else is going well.

Oh and must remember to take a belly pic soon!! Biggrin

ETA.. here is my latest belly pic. It's from four weeks ago, so i should take an updated pic!! The first one is from four weeks so you can see the comparason!! :shock:

UPDATE on me: BORING, baby's head is down, but not engaged, bp, protein, hb all good, no swelling NOTHING...textbook.... (actually more boring than textbook) which i assume is a good thing when you're talking 37 weeks preggo (I'm actually due a week ahead of my ticker!)
I HAVE to get a picture soon, maybe this weekend at the cottage...(kid free cottage-ah, relaxing!)

anyway...that's it for me....

Hey everyone. Morning sickness has totally kicked in and it so sucks. This one is the opposite of Eathan though, with him I was sick if I didn't eat, with this one I am sick if I do eat, it is so worse. I am hoping to get the internet soon so I can be on here alot more often, I can't wait.

That's awful Stef, I hope you find something you can eat without feeling awful soon.

*warning* vent ahead!

How many times a day do you think you can yell at a toddler before it starts to cause problems? Maddi is driving me mad today. She keeps touching things she shouldn't, breaking things and climbing on the furniture and me. Our timeout space is out of action because we've been doing some painting and I am ready to throw her through a wall!!!! but instead I have to pack her up in the car and take her with me while I get blood drawn..... ugh! I feel sick and tired and she is driving me insane!! I can't wait until this m/s gives up. Ah... now she is stuck in her potty, yes... IN the potty, she sat in it and counldn't get out... help me! Anyone want an extra for a week or two??

sorry to hear that she's causing you a headache today...do you have any new toys hidden away that you could bring out for a change or something? then again, i guess we shouldn't reward bad behaviour...
I know with E if we stay home for a whole day or something he's often like that just "looking" for trouble so I usually have to think of a way to side track it...like a picnic lunch or colouring, play dough somthing new or totally different!

GL, sorry about the blood being drawn, and hopefully the ms eases up quickly!

Lol sounds like a great deal Steph!

the blood wasn't so bad Dawn, although she did dig around an awful lot looking for the vein :roll: we were going out but she was driving me mad in the meantime- when I was getting dressed and organised etc. She's the same when we stay home all day she gets crazy.

On a more positive note we went to see a friend's newborn on thurs night... awwwww! so tiny and sweet! Maddi wasn't sure what to make of her, she kept trying to give her toys but then she was confused when she didn't take them from her but she was so excited to see the baby she was talking about it all afternoon and again friday morning Smile

Ohhh how did I miss this thread. Great to see/read everyones updates. You all look fabulous!!!

I had my 28 week appt today (at 28 weeks 3 days heheh). All is good. Baby has now turned head down, yay. She's the only one of my kids that have ever been breech, even for a short while, so she was making me a bit nervous. She's measuring about 1.4kgs or 3lbs for you USA folk which puts her at 29 weeks, so we're pretty close. The good news is I passed my GD test with flying colours. Phew. The bad news is that i'm anaemic, which i'm not surprised about given how i've been feeling and how I was with both the other kids by now too! I got my anti-d (rhongram?) shot too. Fun. Alison thought it was hilarious that I was being jabbed in the bum!

Hmmm, think that's all!

Quick update on us: NT scan and related testing was all ok, low risk and all that. Baby is growing right on track and all the u/s measurements aligned exactly with my dates. The big u/s is scheduled for the 3rd October and we're still deciding whether to find out the gender, I think we will but then again we keep changing our minds. I had a bit of a fall yesterday (tripped over the trundle on maddi's bed- we have it out to help her climb up because her bed is still a little high for her) but of course I protected the belly and hurt both wrists and my knee instead! lots of fun, my knee is purple today. This is one active baby , I can feel it stretching tonight, feels strange when they're still so little Smile and I've had a couple of really strong kicks lately, only a matter of time until I am fighting feet in my ribs Lol

It's a BOY!!!

I'm a little late posting this, but I'm definitely having a boy. We're very excited! My big u/s in July went very well and he was moving all over the place. I've had another u/s since and he still looks great. The ovary growth is still the same size and I have another u/s in October to make sure it's still not growing. So far, so good. He's kicking all the time now and making my belly jump. It's so much fun (finally!).

Congrats to everyone on their pregnancies. We're a busy board these days!

Just a quick update... Baby is fully engaged and i'm 2cm dialated, so they don't expect me to go to term :shock:!!

I'm not ready yet!! argh!!!! I personally don't expect (or hope) to go into labour before 38 weeks!! We also have to drive one hour to get to hospital... and we're just not ready!!

Anyway there's my scary update!! LOL!!

Eek Danni! You're pretty close to full term, so hang in there Madison! Just remember you can sit dialated for quite a bit with nothing else happening!

I'm nearly finished work. Just under 6 weeks until my due date.... I've decided to stop work a week earlier than I planned, so I bet my little girl comes late...
