Heaving massive sighs and sobs of relief - our darling babies made it through the surgery and the first few hours. Prof Kilby took 3.3 litres of fluid off Mana and by the time of the scan about five hours later, little 'Uhila had made enough to almost even out the pools. This is a very good sign, I think.

The next few days will be critical, and I'm a little bit raw and having palpitations so nothing but rest for me. Scan on Tuesday to see if they've pulled through yet again and if it's looking like the procedure was a success.

All your kind words really helped me get through those long hours of waiting today. Thank you.

My bump is a far more comfortable size now - I didn't realise how distended I'd got. It's so nice to eat a meal and not spend the next two hours bending backwards to make room for it. I'll post the before and after pics when I get home tomorrow.

I am WELL up for a more upbeat thread title! We're fucking warriors! grin

Sounds like a few people having a rough time at the moment - peace , sasseh , crayola and anyone else I've missed in not scrolling back. SEnding you all hugs and flowers ladies.

I feel massive today and exhausted. Finding it difficult to deal with DS. Supposed to be potty training but have zero energy.


DrFunkesFamilyBandSolution Fri 01-Aug-14 20:01:30

Air punching awesomeness miraculous! Hope you have an easy, restful weekend & Tuesday comes around quickly!

Engels, snap. I fell asleep & the boys had far too much tv time today, roll on autumn.
We started potty training ds1 when I was pg but put it on hold, he finally picked it up when ds2 was 4 m old...still won't poo on the toilet! Bloody 2 year olds & their stubbornness

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend x

Amazing Miraculous. I'm so happy for you!

Someone said something lovely to me the other day that could be a good tread title, "stay well as you swell"

Somersetgirl1990 Fri 01-Aug-14 20:22:18

So happy for you miraculous, you must be so relieved, what little fighters you have in there! Have been thinking of you all day, so so pleased you've had a brilliant result grin

CatFaceCrayola Fri 01-Aug-14 20:22:26

Oh miraculous that's just wonderful! This news has certainly cheered me up.

And we definitely need/deserve a positive, warrior roar title for our next thread!

LisaC2611 Fri 01-Aug-14 20:25:41

Fantastic news miraculous, so thrilled for you grin

Dr funke and Engels I'm also feeling exhausted today and I don't have any other children to contend with.

So glad the weekend is here hope we are all doing nice things and getting lots of relaxing.

BigHairyLeggedSpider Fri 01-Aug-14 20:29:51

Oh Miraculous thats fabulous! Have been checking all day to see whether you'd updated. So pleased for you and hope you have a chilled out positive weekend!

Warrier roar is utterly needed.

oohdaddypig Fri 01-Aug-14 20:33:53

Yay to miraculous, your wonderful surgeon and your amazing fighting twinnies. Still keeping everything crossed and lots of goodwill flying south to Brum. Are you staying south?

Exhausted today too - is there something in the air? My poor kids are having crap parenting...

"Bumps a blooming and beginning to blossom"?!

nickyjlees Fri 01-Aug-14 21:24:25

Great news miraculous! Been thinking of you all, so glad to hear that things have gone so well, what a strong family you are.

littlepickly Fri 01-Aug-14 21:53:38

Thrilled to hear your positive news miraculous!! You're all amazing smile

I'm pretty tired today too but v.excited that it's the weekend hoping for lovely swim with DH and DD tomorrow some sewing and a BBQ with friends on Sunday. Counting down the days till mat leave!

4 months today till EDD sounds ages but I guess it will fly!

SassehMonsta Fri 01-Aug-14 22:38:18

What about "Blooming Bumps and Blossoming Bosoms"? I laughed too much at it! Or "The Warriors of the 2nd Trimester".

So so so pleased Miraculous - like others I have been constantly checking back to see if you had updated! Got fingers safely crossed for you, your dp and your miracles, and so happy to hear some good news!

Getting very wound up by the dog, who just wants to be sitting on me/the bump/my hips/my face all the time. Arrrgh! Keeps pushing his whole weight into me via his chest, hes 20kgs of pure muscle.

21 weeks in just under an hour and 20 ;)

So happy to hear your news miraculous this is amazing news! such a lovely way to end the thread!

CatFaceCrayola Fri 01-Aug-14 23:32:38

Both good titles sasseh are you taking charge?

Somersetgirl1990 Sat 02-Aug-14 04:38:02

Aaah only a few posts left on this thread - hoping someone with a bit more I.T expertise comes along soon!

Getting so fed up with not being able to move too quickly in bed without getting a twinge in the bottom of my bump, hoping this is normal. I'm starting to feel like a sloth though confused

Ladylel Sat 02-Aug-14 08:00:35

I'm on it. Stay tuned. Don't post anything and I will return with the new named thread very shortly.
