Kiam's pictures/journal. (updated 37w4d)
 
Going to start from the beginning and try to get all of this in chronological order.






Belly during IVF (as I don't have a proper "before" belly shot, as I bloated out almost immediately)

First Midwife Appointment 10w4d
Met my midwife today, she is absolutely lovely. I didn't get a tour of the family birth centre ward, as they only have two rooms and both were in use, so hopefully next time.
I had some more blood tests done, had to do a few repeat tests because Melbourne Pathology were being stingy about giving out the results for the ones that I had done prior to IVF to someone who wasn't a doctor *sigh* but never mind.
Booked in for my 12w scan in 2 weeks, managed to get the last spot available for that week at the free imaging clinic in the hospital (very large public hospital, so it books out fast) whereas if I had to go to an external clinic I would have had to pay a gap payment after public health kicked in, so woohoo! Will have to leave work an hour early that day to make it, but that works out fine because I have a fair bit of time in lieu owed to me at the moment.

Then I got a bag of goodies, in the words of the midwife, "I am sorry, I have to offer you a large bag of avertising, because we are paid to do so"
But it is pretty cool, sure most of it is ads, but it has some samples in it, maternity pads, a nappy, two different samples of nappy rash cream, a "designer" morning sickness vomit bag (LOL), and, best of all, it has a whole load of vouchers (I think you guys call them coupons) for Target and Babyco, so that's useful.

Some of the regular customers at work were taking bets on how many babies are in there yesterday. I was just standing there awkwardly while they were all pointing at my stomach.

Yep. Hospital does them as standard.

I can't figure out if baby is just an attention seeker and wants everyone to know it is there, or if it just really likes space and will be disappointed when we bring it home and it learns that it is going to live in a very small house.

Either way, why the hell am I this big already? I was planning on not having to buy summer maternity clothes, but that went out the window.

Cool! We asked at our last ultra sound and they told us they don't do them before 20 weeks because the baby doesn't have any fat on their bodies for it to looks right. But I think your pic looks great!

PS, it appears to me that you are slowing down? I don't see as significant a difference between your last two pics, considering there is a 5 week span! Maybe you feel differently though ;)
