Hello Pinkdaisy, went for a mint green colour and some pink and blue stickers, looks lovely. Being stuck in Tenerife doesn't sound too bad! Yeah, our car has some ash on it too, hopefully it will pass soon. Keep fighting Pinkdaisy and I'm sure you will get there soon xx

Curlysue, I just had a wee read of your signature and I see you were at the ACS unit at the same time as me, we may of met?

Hi ladies hope your well.



Flowerpower i hope your feeling ok now.



How long did you ladies wait for your booking appointment from the PRM and did you also get the NT Scan as i've heard this should be done before you reach 14 weeks. I'm 12 weeks next week and haven't heard from the maternity yet so was just wondering if i should maybe phone them next week if i still haven't heard anything. I take it when you go for the booking appointment you actually get a dating scan or is the clinics scan accuarate enough? Sorry for all the questions but i'm a bit confused.

Give the PRM a call - we didn't get a booking appointment until 15wks - so too late for a NT Scan (however, it was Christmas / New Year and flowerpower wasn't feeling great the first appt - which is why they admitted her when we did go).

I think they will recalculate the due date at the dating scan - although we didn't pay attention to either as it's twins. Dating scans are probably less important with ICSI than 'normal' pregnancies, as the precise date of conception is known. Gestational age is time since conception plus 2 weeks. Add 38 weeks to date of conception and that's your due date @ 40 weeks. They can then compare the calculated GA with the GA determined by measuring the baby to see if it is growing slowly or quickly.

Flowerpower is feeling better now - we were getting worried she had pre-eclampsia (had swollen feet a few days ago!), but blood pressure and urine tests today are ok. Off to the PRM tomorrow for the 28week checkup.

Hey Judgejules- long time no hear. I'm not with PRM but I would phone if I was you, I think us ICSI girls get our booking appointments really late as it's not until after our 8 week scan that they refer us. When I eventually seen my midwife, she couldn't believe that I was already over 12 weeks and hadn't seen anybody or even been referred for my scan yet so she was glad that I had phoned.

Daffyman- Glad Flowerpower is doing better, hope she's not got pre-eclampsia. I take it she's off work and just taking it easy then?

Curlysue- Good luck for your scan tomorrow, hope baby is moving around and putting on a good show for you. Since we are about the same stage, was wondering if you showing yet? I can't wait to get my scan and be able to tell everyone cause I don't know how much longer I can hide it.

Eils- Hope everything is going well in your first few pregnant weeks.

Pinkchick i'm gonna give them a phone tomorrow. Do you have a bump? I do and i actually got asked by a lady in my work on Friday if i was pregnant but i couldn't lie and what's the point i'm 3 month next week. It actually felt good being asked, i can't believe how quick i've started showing but i'm so thin so it is really noticeable as i've never had a tummy lol.



Curlysue hope everything is fine with you.

Hi all, Flowerpower has been admitted to hospital after her fortnightly ultrasound yesterday @ 28+2wks - concerned about growth of the little girl and her blood flow. Been given steroids and another ultrasound this morning which showed improved heartbeat/blood flow.

Repeating the scan tomorrow and will probably deliver by c-section Friday afternoon.

Oh Daffyman and flowerpower, what a rough time you guys are having. That's a shame that they're concerned about your baby girl, glad things are improving today tho. Must be a bit of a shock to think that they are going to be delivered so soon. At least once they're out, they can keep a closer eye on them.
I am thinking about you both and keep my fingers crossed that everything is o.k. OMG, you're gonna be mummy and daddy very soon.
Please keep us updated on how things are going.

Had my scan today, all well. Baby was moving around and waving its arms about. It's so strange how it can be moving around so much and yet I don't feel it. The radiographer was laughing cause she said that the baby must've known everytime she was trying to take a picture and it kept moving. My baby must be very smart! haha!!
Anyway, i'm a couple of days less further on than we thought. Turns out i'm 12w6d today, which makes my due date 29th oct. Hey my baby better not be born on halloween.
Judgejules- yes I have got a bump now so can no longer fit into my skinny clothes so i've been hiding it under some baggy clothes. At least we can tell everyone now and they won't think i'm just putting on weight.

Thank you all for your kind words, I will pass them on to flowerpower first thing tomorrow morning when I return to the hospital for our Friday ultrasound and the doctor'sD decision.

Today felt a massive relief after the scan knowing they would be left to grow another day. We can only hope it is the same tomorrow but are prepared that it is not and are grateful for the two extra days we have bought so far.

Hi all,

Daffyman/Flowerpower - Glad to hear your little one's are still sitting safe in there. Best wishes for tomorrow. Sending you lots of love.

Judgejules - Hope you got on all right when you called the PRM. I got my appointment through last week and went for my scan Wednesday there. My appointment was at 2.45pm and didn't get out until 6pm! Not kidding. Got taken really quick for the scan but had to wait about to see midwife. So i had my scan at 12 wks 5days.The midwife appointment is just all paper work really with a urine test and some blood tests - all the same one's we've already had!!

Pinkchick - Glad everything went well at the scan and hope you have had lots of fun telling everyone. We are due the same day!!! 29th October 2010!!! :)

Hope everyone else is keeping well.

Well scan went well on Wednesday got some really good scan pictures. Yip girls im showing also clothes starting to feel really tight!! Baby due 29th October 2010. They said to me that i won't go back there til 38 wks and because it's an ICSI baby they won't let me go over 40 wks. I will find out at the 38wk appointment when they will take me. I have to make separate appointments for my midwife for every 4 wks and if they can't see me for whatever reason if no apoointments then ive to phone PRM and they will see me as and when. I wish i could just go to the PRM all the time it would suit me so much more.

Have a nice night.

Daffyman/Flowerpower thinking of you and your little ones hope all goes well 2moro



Curlysue glad your scan went well can't believe how long you were there for. I phoned the other day and was told that they had my details on the system but i was at the appointment stage and that they aim to see everyone between 12 and 16 weeks so i guess i just have to wait then until that appointment arrives which i hope is soon as i will be 12 weeks next week so hopefully i don't wait too long. Was your dates bang on the same as what the clinic said or was there a difference?



Pinkchick and anyone else i've not mentioned i hope all is well.

Daffyman- Hope scan goes well this morning and that it buys you another day. It's so weird how we count down the weeks and months and now all of a sudden, each day is so vital. Hope you and flowerpower are coping o.k. Give her a big hug from me and i'll log on later to find out what those little babies are up to. Do they have a rough idea what weight the babies might be at the moment?

Curlysue- Can't believe we're due on the same day. I had my EC on 3rd Feb and ET on 6th Feb. What were your dates. It's funny cause I worked it out that I was 3 days further on but the 1st scan showed that I was 3 days less (which I chose to ignore) but my scan on Thurs confirmed that they were right!!! I wonder if the date of implantation affects your gestation cause we know exactly when those eggs were fertilised. Its a bit crap that you can't just continue to go to PRM if you want. Does that mean that the midwife who did your booking appointment isn't the actual midwife who'll be looking after you throughout? Didn't realise that they don't let you go past 40 weeks as an ICSI pregnancy- something makes me think that Christine was further on before she had Adam but she can maybe confirm or dispute that fact for us. I've got an appointment with my consultant in May (apparently is routine for all assisted pregnancies in my NHS trust) so i'll clarify if i'll be the same.
Also we're officially in 2nd trimester as of today. woohoo!!!

Judgejules, hope you gat your appointment soon, it is frustrating as you feel a bit like nobodys child and that you have no official point of contact at such an important time. Also, i'm sure you're desperate to have your scan so that you can tell everyone.

Well, I had such a nice day telling everyone our news yesterday, not many people had suspected anything (my baggy uniform obviously helped). I just couldn't believe that it was finally my turn to announce that I was pregnant. It's such a relief actually that I don't have to make up silly excuses anymore. I'm also totally loaded with a cold/ chest infection which is no fun. Anyone got any suggestions on anything I can take to help with the symptoms apart from crappy old paractemol. Sorry for TMI but totally congested, loads of phlegm and to top it off i've now lost my voice.

Hope everyone else is well and having a good weekend. In case you don't know, The baby show is on at the SECC this weekend. Think I might drag DH there for a wee nosey.

Pinkchick, we've managed to get another day (probably two!). Since it's the weekend we had the head honcho doc scanning us. He was great and the blood flows are still good enough to keep them inside until Monday at least in his opinion. It sounds strange but it feels like a disappointment that we won't see our babies today, as well as obviously a relief they have more days (in particular the bigger boy - he is not being stressed so is the higher risk if delivered early). I gave FP the hug - she asked who it was from (obv I don't hug enough).

Enjoy the baby show - there were a number of people on the train this morning buying tickets to Exhibition Centre and congrats on getting to the 2nd trimester.

Daffyman- That's wonderful news that the babies are getting at least another couple of days. You must be comforted by the fact it was the head consultant that reviewed her, i'm sure that have helped put your mind at ease for the weekend. I was quite surprised that it would be the boy that would be the higher risk, why is that? Sounds like you defo have to be giving flowerpower more cuddles!!!

AFM- Have been at 2 parties this weekend and OMG I hate drunk people (To be fair, I'm usually one of them!!) It is absolutely no fun being sober and watching everyone else getting drunker and drunker- Altho, I know I shouldn't complain.
I'm still struggling with this cold altho worried it may be a chest infection as i'm asthmatic. Will see how I go, hate going to the GP as they always seem to have a way of making you feel stupid for going as if your just wasting their time. I need to ask a question and I apologise in advance for the detail. I'm coughing up some nasty phlegm and I cannot spit it out, no matter how much I try- I've never been able to do that so I have to swallow it. Now i'm worried that because i'm swallowing it, the baby will be getting some of it as it gets pretty much everything that is digested. Do you think that it could be harmful?
Also, have any of you pregnant ladies just burst out crying for nothing? This morning I did for absolutely no reason. I was just sitting on my own quite happily watching the T.V and I literally couldn't stop the tears rolling down my face so I was crying and laughing at myself at the same time, it was so weird.

Pinkchick - I think I had what you are describing a few years ago - a minor chest infection with this horrible phlegm - GP told me to take paracetamol.

Very reassuring to have Dr Mathers scan us, and then sit down for what must have been 15-20 minutes and go through the differences over the past few days. The boy might be higher risk because the girl's heart has been working harder to get the oxygen from the placenta. As a result, her heart might be fitter than his. In simple terms, she's been on the rowing machine in the gym, he hasn't. Being born will involve a workout.

Not sure if we're getting a scan today - the midwives find it tricky to do heart traces on them as they (she in particular) move around a lot. This in itself is a good sign - no or little movement indicates that they are so stressed they are conserving oxygen and energy to survive. Spending their energy kicking flowerpower and the midwives means it isn't bad.

Dr Mathers did another scan today due to the impossibility of getting a decent heartbeat trace of both babies using the dopplers. All still fine. We've made it to 29 weeks!

Judgejules - bet you're counting down the days to your 14wk scan already.

Daffyman- Whats happening?? You got any babies yet

Had to phone in sick today for work cause feeling horrendous- Not phoned in for nearly 3 years as I hate doing that but really couldn't have done a days work. Went to the Drs and he felt that my chest was clear (well it would have been- spent the whole morning clearing it!!) Anyway, he gave me a prescription for antibiotics but advised that I hold onto it over next few days and only collect it if my chest gets worse. Hopefully it won't cause really don't want to take any meds unless it's necessary.

Judgejules- Thats good you finally got your appointment thro. You'll see so much if your gonna be 14 weeks gone and will be a big difference from the 9 week one.

OMG- Can't believe today is the day. Well hope all goes smoothly and that all 4 of you are o.k. I know you must be worried about the little babies but they'll be in the best possible hands once they arrive in the world.
Let Flowerpower know that I'm thinking of her and to take it easy after the op. Please update us when you can.

Oh Congratulations to you both. You must feel like you're in a dream right now. How are babies doing then? Are they being looked after in intensive care? Did they allow you to be there in the operating theatre?

Thank you everyone.

Yes, I was there in theatre and we both got to see them before they went up to intensive care about 20-30 minutes after being born.

Highlights of the afternoon/evening -
1. Phoebe (the little one) crying after delivery.
2. Them being confirmed in theatre as a boy and a girl (phew, we've bought the right coloured clothes)
3. Oliver squeezing my finger in neonates.

Flowerpower is recovering well.

Daffyman- That sounds wonderful. Hope little oliver and phoebe are doing well today. Hope Flowerpower is not too sore and is managing to get up and about. Do you get to spend much time with the babies in intensive care? What weight were they?

Flowerpower has been feeling the pain today and is taking whatever painkillers they'll let her take.

Took her to NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) this morning to see them - first time - and then we returned in the evening for a more extended visit. We are allowed in to see them pretty much anytime between 9am and 10pm (usual exception is during a ward round)

Phoebe was 1lb 9oz; Oliver was 3lb 1oz. Despite her size, she is technically Oliver's big sister, having been born 2 minutes earlier.

Phoebe is now no longer requiring breathing assistance - they had a tube in both twins to provide a little extra oxygen but mainly to maintain lung pressure. Oliver is hopefully only a day or two behind.

Daffyman- Oh they must be so tiny. I can't believe that Phoebe is not ventilated and that Oliver will be off soon. They must be doing really well. Can't believe she's the big sister- how cute!!

AFM- Been off work all week as I have been totally floored with the cold which has in turn flared up my asthma. Feeling a good bit better so going to go back tomorrow. Went to ASDA to get my sister a steriliser unit (she's also pregnant). They're having a sale and the Tommy Tippee one was reduced from £35 to £20 so got a wee bargain. I nearly bought myself one but I stopped myself. No point buying things that will clutter up the house when we're planning to move. I did go into NEXT and buy the cutest little babygrow which says "I Love Daddy" on it so DH was well chuffed. It's the 1st piece of clothing that the baby has. We also ordered a foetal heartbeat monitor. Am so excited, canny wait till it arrives altho I'm sure it'll give me a few heart attacks if I can't pick find the heartbeat straight away.

i saw those today in Asda too Pinkchick. I was in gettin things for my sis too, giving her a baby shower next weekend. I was tempted to get that. Need to check what she has already. Got a few teething rings though for a pound, a wee cup and a couple containers for freezing food.

Is it bad that I have quite a few wee baby things??? Oh dear, first babygrow we bought on honeymoon right after we had the discussion about ttc and there was a baby clothes shop next to the restaurant we were in, so we went in and DH picked out a lil green number. It's so cute, but in a cupboard in the same bag it came in nearly 3 yrs ago! I have a few we sets of babygrows that were just too cute I couldn't resist and an eyeore from the disney store. I know it's prob bad luck, but I bought them quite early on when I didn't know we would still be here this much further on!

Hope you pg ladies are all doin well!!

Glad the twins are doing well! Sounds like they are fighters.


Love to all Jx
