Chandy your little girl is smiling Smile Beautiful.

I'm feeling a lot better now than I was.... I can tell you when I found out I was pregnant.. I bawled my eyes out, cos all I could think of was that bloody big lump of a horse that i've spent so much time, money, effort and emotion on, and now I'll have to give that up.

Just hope I can start riding again next year once my horse is all better. Kinda good timing..

I'm used to being pregnant now and very excited and cant wait to meet my little person growing inside me Smile

Such a cute bubba EF! Good luck LS.

I have a question! Has anyone else experienced really bad round ligament pain? Ie: muscle pain from stretching muscles as the baby grows.

I am now at 22 weeks. For the past week I have been just about in agony, with extreme pain through the right side of my stomach/back, just below my ribs. Its like a really deep internal muscle that has been stretched and pulled. The rest of my lower back, hips and lower ribs etc have also been really achey. Haven't been able to sleep comfortably, I end up waking up in agony, sitting at my desk for long periods of time is uncomfortable, as my entire lower back etc is painful! Moving around and walking sometimes helps, but sometimes it just places more strain on all my muscles.

Last night I finally managed some sleep by propping my back up on soft pillows etc. I have heat packs on my lower back as much as I can morning and evenings, and have resorted to the odd panadol. I see my osteo on Thursday. But does anyone else have any other advice?

This also happened between 12 - 14 weeks. Everything is fine though, my internal organs and baby have all been checked. So it can only be my darn muscles complaining! Bubs must be going through another massive growth spurt!

I'm only 10 weeks but have had a little bit of lower back pain, and sometimes sharp pains in my sciatic. The hospital i'm going to "MONASH" has a physio for those wanting some relief. Does your hospital have those options??

Lost all my respect for Monash after a friend of mine was pregnant with her 2nd baby and already had a boy and was told at all of her checkups she was having a girl she was so excited! Painted the nursery pink got rid of all her boy clothes and went mad on the pink only for her little girl to come out with a set of balls Shocked
She loves him anyway but I feel for her as she admitted she felt disappointed when he was born and though she was glad just happy to have a healthy baby. All these unnecessary feelings could have been avoided if they got it right! Sad

Oh landslide you poor thing, what a run-around! Thank goodness it sounds like its under control and your little fella is much more comfortable Smile

We are finally up to our 20 week scan on Wednesday and are finding out what we are having Very Happy

Stories like your friends Lynz are a bit too common so unless we see 'proof' ourselves we will be a bit skeptical until it pops out!

I am having the most boring pregnancy ever. I forget I am pregnant most of the time and am only showing a little. My Dr says its the horse riding tummy muscles keeping everything held in tight, and my height allows it to go longways instead of 'out' I don't mind, no need for maternity clothing yet!

Did anyone else lose weight during early pregnancy? My Dr isn't worried, as I had about 5kgs to lose to get to my ideal weight anyway, and am certainly not starving the baby (not with all I am eating now!) though I only really feel like fruit and veggies, and am remaining very active through work and just doing farm stuff. I guess the less weight I have to gain, the less I have to lose at the end Razz

Hello ladies,

Well I thought that its about time that I stop lurking in here and start making some posts Very Happy

I am 14 weeks today, and so excited that we are having a baby. Very Happy Very Happy I have had a 7 week scan and a 12 week scan and all is going well. I met the lovely midwives and doctors at Ballarat Base last week, and they were so friendly and informative.

Just wanted to say a big congraultions to all the lovely ladies that have just had their bubs. They are just gorgeous!!! Hope all is going well.

As Hacker said LS I hope that thngs have settled with your little boy. Fingers crossed hes a happier little bub.

Hacker you are doing well not to be showing much at all! I am just starting to get a little bump at 14wks, but if I wear some leggings under my work dresses it seems to go away. Doc has already done the 'horse riding is a dangeous sport' chat with me. My hubby just gave me the 'i told you so look' LOL.

Hope everyone else is travelling well. Very Happy

Congrats Mear1006! I am having my bubby at Ballarat Base too, and yes I totally agree that they are great down there! Midwives and doctors have all been wonderful.

At 23 weeks this week, and I can't believe how huge I am getting!!! In the last two weeks I have gone from small bump to huge stomach that I can no longer disguise.

My stretching aches and pains have been relieved a lot by my wonderfully talented osteo.

Have basically given up the idea of trying to ride. I was hoping to ride as much as possible, but after 16 weeks of awful morning sickness, and still having limited energy now at 23 weeks, I have decided its just not worth putting myself under the pressure. Not to mention the overprotective motherly instincts have kicked in, so I don't quite have the guts to get on most of the time! I may still jump on a horse for a quiet plod around if I can, but only if I feel safe and comfy, and only if OH is around.

Does anyone know of anywhere in Melbourne or Ballarat that sells any decent maternity clothes, that don't cost a fortune, for the more 'petite' mother to be??? I am struggling to fit in to my normal clothes, but most maternity stuff I have seen are very tent like and massive. I am petite, skinny (size 6-8 normally), but with a huge belly! I need both casual and more dressy business type clothes. Help!!!

Congratulations Yazzi! Hope you can pop in with pics soon Very Happy

And congratulations mear1006! Its so lovely being able to share the news once you know all is well Smile

One Stop Horse Shop, have you tried just buying a few sizes bigger? A friend who is a similar height and size to me was pregnant last year and she just bought size 18 clothing to get her through her pregnancy from Big W and Target and those other cheapy stores. I think I will be doing the same, unless I balloon out all of a sudden Razz I still fit into my size 14 tops and pants though they are a little tight...

I started feeling movement last week, I think its movement anyway. Otherwise I just have a lot of gas Razz

I haven't ridden since September Sad I miss it so much, but my husband asked me to stop so I did. Only a few months to go!

I'm 11 weeks this week and have a gut... its so embarrassing. Its like the in-between stage where people don't know your pregnant but just think you've eaten too many cheese burgers... still feeling a bit crap... I've noticed i'm very puffed out walking up stairs etc and even doing stuff with my horse. Definitely not riding, cant ride my horse anyway cos he's off injured for 12 months.. but I miss riding so much. And I need to stop stressing that my life is over and riding is over forever. HA HA

This is SO me, I'm terrified of having kids, terrified of the unknown and change it will bring to my life - too bad if I don't like being a Mum after the fact Laughing Embarassed

In all seriousness EVERYONE that I've spoken to has not regretted one bit of it once bubs is born, instincts WILL take over and your priorities might naturally want to change Cool

I know where you are coming from! I still have no affinity for babies or kids under 3, they just don't provoke any maternal feelings and even provoke a bit of disgust when they are doing something gross. Apparently its all different when you have your own.. but its still a scary thought that you won't like it once its here! I told mum she can have it for the first 6 months if I don't like it Cool Laughing

But seriously, my husband and I discussed the whole 'do we or don't we' last year. We decided 2013 would be a good year to try.. but nature had other plans Rolls Eyes Apparently even after 9 years of impanton/pills with no periods my reproductive system bounced back with no downsides (the Dr said it should take 6-12 months to 'click back into gear' ummmmm.. not for Ms super-fertile here!)

Anyway, we have been together for 10 years, married for 6 (7 this year) and decided it was time to add to our family, whatever the stress/cost/worry it would bring! Having a very easy pregnancy has helped a lot. I think he might have changed his mind if I was vomiting or overly hormonal all the time Razz

Awww once you see your little baby you'll fall in love.

I am really excited about having a baby. I've always been a very maternal type of person. I just really want to keep my horses in my life I don't know how we are going to afford it and my OH said he's not paying for them, because he has to support our house hold. Which is fair enough... when I first found out I was pregnant I was devestated because i'd only just got my WB down in melbourne after waiting 1.5 years for him to be broken in etc... Had him home for a few months, then he hurt himself so is out.

I'm happy to turn him out for 12 months, but how do women fit it all in? Did you have someone babysit daily while u rode? Or do you put the pusher on the side of the arena? Or have you stopped riding altogether?

I don't have my own property so I cant just ride whenever, I have to travel to ride and see my horses. I cant stop worrying about it all... silly I know.

Its not silly to worry! But don't really stress yourself out about it.

My husband asked me to stop riding and I made the decision to sell my current riding horse, as he was going so well and I wasn't firmly attached to him. He is now making someone else really happy.

I still have 4 TBs, a friesian baby and 6 little ones to care for though! I am hoping to lease one of the TBs out and give the mare away to the RDA, and one of the little ones is going to a long term lease home as a companion. So if it all works out I will be able to manage those left on my reduced (read; zero) income for 6 months. I am hoping to return to part time work after 6 months, though might be able to manage full time if most of it is from home.

Unfortunately we don't qualify for the government handouts, excepting the paid parental leave. Our "Family Tax Benifit" would be close to zero due to our assets, mind you they are all tied up in a property we pay a massive mortgage on, so we have to both work in order to maintain our lifestyle (like many others!)

Others may not agree, but there is no way in hell I would be happy as a stay at home mum anyway. I love my job and I am sure I can manage job and baby at the same time. Luckily we have our own property so the animals are just out the back door to be able to manage and my job is felxible enough to be able to work from home 2-3 days a week. At least that's the plan!

If your boy is spelling for 12 months can be go out on a cheaper agistment so you can save a bit now? The more you can save now the easier it may be when the baby arrives Smile

As for returning to riding, I tend to hunt so its only a winter sport so I don't plan on returning to ride for 12 months. Though I might have a plod around on my old boy after bubs arrives.. and can sleep in the pusher outside the fence or will ride when hubby comes home or mum is around to look after it.

Yes I will have to try and find a companion home or maybe someone that needs a lawn mower for a while. If I can find a free paddock or extremely cheap that would be awesome. I just need to keep in a restricted paddock for a bit longer as he's had a stem cell transplant on his hind suspensory ligament that cost me a fortune. So I need to manage it properly otherwise he can do damage to the healing area.

I want to be a stay at home Smile Im looking forward to it Smile

I am sure you will find something Smile If you are planning not to work you are going to have to stick him somewhere when you can get back to riding that you guys can afford anyway, sGroovy Baby!t be worth looking at those options now? Some long-term agistment places will offer deals to those who sign up for a year at a time. At least they used to!

I know I will be judged for wanting to go back to work, but I don't care. We can't afford to maintain a lifestyle we both love on one salary! Plus I am fiercely independent when it comes to the horses and hate the thought of having hubby pay for their upkeep! With independence of their care, comes independence of how many I have Laughing

Ahhh its nice to know that many of the feelings that we all have are quite natural. As much as I love babies I am still nervous that I won't know what to do once I get home. I'm sure that i'll figure it out, and I am lucky that I have a great hubby and wonderful friends around to ask if I need there help. Very Happy

I like your comment hacker to your mum, that she can have your bubs for 6mths to start with if you don't like it Laughing

I'm sure that you will work out what to do with your horsey Ozcore. But as others have mentioned if you can find somewhere free etc it may make it a little easier on your pocket.

I am lucky that we have our own property so my horsey can stay and bum around if I wanted. Luckily I have found somebody close that has been riding him for me, so at least he can stay in work while I have bubba. My hubby has asked me not to ride too much, so I have been for the odd plod around while he is close by- but my horsey seems to know that he needs to take extra special care of me Very Happy

I still have no idea if I want to go back to work or stay at home. I thought that I will just wait and see what motherhood brings me and how I cope. And of course how finances are going.

Hacker- I have no idea about all the family tax benefits etc. It all seems very confusing. I did a quick comparision on some website and it told me we are better to take the baby bonus. My brother is an accountant so I thought that i'd ask him for some extra advice Smile

Definitely talk to your accountant Smile

For us it was much of a muchness taking the baby bonus over the 'government paid maternity leave', they both end up being about the same. The latter is means tested, as are the tax benefits, etc. Unfortunately if you own assets (despite reducing your income by half with one partner not working and those assets all tied up!) you get pretty much nothing. We don't qualify for any of the handouts unfortunately Confused Not sure how we will go on one wage for 6 months, stocking up on nappies, etc now Laughing

If you fall into the right income/asset bracket, there are oodles of things you can apply for, in fact in some cases the accountant said you can earn more off your kids than you can working for minimum wage! Its interesting, I always wondered how the no-hopers in the local town managed to afford to breed and still afford their ciggies and junk food Confused

Remember this all you mums who aren't maternal (i wasn't either)

Children are like farts, your own are just about bearable everyone elses are horrendous.

this is how i feel with my two. I can tolerate my kids but cannot deal with other peoples. My maternal child health nurse suggested that as i am one of her best mothers i should look into becoming a family day care provider. She was a little suprised when i pointed out that before i met hubby i never wanted kids and i still can't stand other peoples kids. It is so different when they are your own Very Happy

congrats and good luck to all those who are expecting

i can help a little with the BB / PPL

BB - $5600 i think? there abouts.. not taxable
You still qualify for FTB Part A & B

OR

PPL - $10 300 or there abouts, taxable - they take out 15% at payment time. You lose FTB Part B You receive fortnightly payments from centrelink - for 18 weeks over all.

The PPL is not paid out at a ratio - if you qualify, you get the full amount regardless.
(this was not immediately clear to my accountant, who assumed i would only receive $2700 of the PPL, so told me to go BB.. where as i would be $3000 better off over BB to go PPL)


So work out, how much your FTB Part B is worth over 18 weeks - deduct that from the PPL, and deduct the taxable amount (15%) - but then add or keep off the taxable amount based on your income


Good luck!

Thanks EloueraFarm for explaining the BB Vs PPL. I know there is a calc online, however it keeps coming out with different answers, so its nice to work it out by youself as well Very Happy

And Ozcore- not to worry about the pic, we are woman and can put up with a fair bit. And if all else fails just ask for lots of drugs Laughing

Aw thanks HM Smile

He was around the wrong way. They tried the vacuum and then forceps. I also was given those horrible words "It's too late for an epidural" (aaarrggghh!! Wink ). I went to theatre afterwards for some downstairs renovations. Yup, got an epidural AFTER the baby was delivered. Ooooh it felt lovely and the needle in the back was not scary at all. I'm just starting to feel a bit more like myself today. I've been up to visit the horses a couple of times. Sure glad they don't wear nappies!! Very Happy Very Happy

I had #2 just over 2wks ago & I have been very emotional! For me it's perfectly normal as same happened with #1 & it took a good 4-6wks to settle down. Hormones have a lot to answer for!!

If it continues or even if it doesn't it won't hurt to talk to someone

Hi ladies, figured it was time to get my butt in here, I am 10 weeks pregnant Smile

I have a blood clotting disorder that only kicks in during pregnancy so am on thinners for the next 18 months.

Ozcore: YES! I am bummed, really bummed! I am scared and disappointed as my career was just kicking off, had finally saved
enough to buy a WB and get back out competing and now everything
is on hold for atleast 18 months.

I feel all the worse because hubby is SO excited and I don't feel it yet, all I feel is sick and sleepy.

BUT I felt similar with my youngest daughter, now 8 yr old, and it
passed Smile I was sure I would be post natal but as soon as I saw
here little face, it was pure love Smile

I am hoping it kicks in this time too Smile


~~~ dare to dream.. BIG horse BIG ~~~
