Hi Everyone!

I just thought I would pop my head in and tell everyone that I had my last scan today at 35 weeks to check on the baby girl and she appears happy and healthy! She is Just under the normal weight range by a smidge which is astounding because I have only put on 6-7kgs through the pregnancy...I guess it is true what They keep saying to me that (baby's are like parasites and will take everything they need)

I am currently on 25mg of Dothep for the Fibromyalgia pain, 75mg of 6mp, just put on 40mg of prednisolone to help me qualify for the Remicade, and a couple of panadine a day.

It is truly a struggle everyday and just this week had a major melt down but the time has flown and I cant wait to meet my little angel...its just a pitty the pregnancy didn't make me feel any better.

I hope your all doing okay x x Much love!

YAY! Glad to hear she is doing so well. A breakdown at 35 weeksish is unavoidable. I had one over a crib mattress last time. LOL. Crazy hormones. Can't wait to hear when she is here.

I'm just 6 weeks behind you. It IS going so fast.
