Two year anniversary!!


Finally here. How things have changed in two years. This time two years ago I was into cycle one. I had no idea I was going to go through that five times over the subsequent two years. I still know I'm one of the lucky ones and feel immensely blessed.

I was going to celebrate with cake. Have eaten so much of it lately and having had a return to the nausea of early pregnancy, I actually don't feel like noshing cake.


For the last two weeks a hypnotherapy CD for a natural birth has been sitting on a shelf in my hallway. I've been meaning to return it and buy one on C-section births.

I won't be needing to do that.

TP has finally done what most baby's do and turned. At this morning's appointment my Consultant (and a medical student) had a feel and could feel a hard mass low down. We popped into the scanning room and sure enough, there was a little baby head down at the bottom of my belly.

I shouldn't admit this but i'm a little disappointed. We were all set to meet TP next week and now it could be anything up to 4 weeks. FOUR WEEKS!!!!

It's time to bounce on my Swiss ball eat hot curries, drink raspberry leaf tea and consider perineal massage. The thought of that was so gross - having been nowhere near that end for so many months, other than to tend to my haemorrhoids (TMI I know) - I haven't been able to face it. I might even have to persuade Mr G to do the do - which he's way to scared to as he feels it's just not right with TP so close.

I stil might not have to but now there's a very real chance that I might be pushing TP out the proper exit, it's time to prepare! Mr G paid no attention to the labour stuff at our classes as he thought we'd been let off labour. No chance. His child has other plans for us.

Well done TP for leaving it to the last minute and for mucking Daddy's diary up! A chip off the old block!

Please go cheer Meredith on (link in my last post) as her beta's moving on up. Everything's crossed for her - one of my senior buddies (hope she doesn't mind my saying that) - who's really been through it.

Congratulations on TP getting in the proper position! It must be so exciting to think that at any time you could be meeting her in person. You said it could be 4 weeks, but really it could be any day. Wow! I'm so happy for you and your hubby, you're in the home stretch.

Congrats on your anniversary.

Hurray to TP moving but I can quite see that it would be disappointing to have to wait longer to meet her (if you do have to wait longer) I hope she feels the vibes and doesn't leave it too long.

Happy 2 years!

Glad TP is in the proper position--and I know you are anxious to meet the little one! It will be here before you know it!

Well done TP! Walking up lots of hills is another good one to add to your list. I think sex is the only one with scientific foundation though. Curry apparently only works if you don't eat them that often/ cant handle chilli spices as it is setting off a dicky tummy that helps.

As someone who had a vaginal birth the first time and just recently had a c-section...be glad about the turn of events you just had. I know it's exciting to think you know exactly when the baby is coming and that you get to meet it very soon, but you'll be really glad you got that vaginal birth and got to skip the major surgery when all is said and done.

Senior Buddy -- Don't mind at all. I can't believe it's been two years since you and I both had our first IVFs -- time flies apparently even when you're not having fun.

So happy to hear TP has turned. Sorry it causes an upset in the plan but yeah for baby. I'll be checking often to hear any updates.

Great news!! And yeah it may be another month - but at least (hopefully) you won't have a belly full of stitches and a new born.

Do keep us all posted.. and make sure Mr G knows how to post soooo we can find out what you have had.

God - I am really thrilled for you sweetheart.

Good news about TP turning. Hope you don't have to wait too long. Thanks for the thoughts in my 2ww. x

Thanks for your comment -- you are so funny. You should definitely feel free to uncross anything you need in order to let TP arrive :)

I'm so excited for you that the little on is almost here.
