    Hi everyone. Just been reading your posts. congratulations to you all & hope things are going well for you all.

    I am 7 weeks with my second. I have a daughter Maddison who is now 2 1/2. I have PCOS & it has taken my nearly 18 months to get here although I didn't have a period for 10 months. I was given no help, support or advice from the doctors only that i should lose some weight, I've since lost 18lbs of the 70lbs I needed to lose & that helped cos here we are finally.

    I've not seen my midwife yet but was added to her list when I saw the gp last thurs. My due date is 13th September but as I have a 45 day cycle I think it will be more like 27th Sept.

    We're hoping for a boy this time but we won't mind if its another girl as long as its healthy.

    I had an emergency c-section last time as Maddison turned back to back when my waters broke then tilted her head back & promptly got stuck. When i had my 6 week check after I had her they told me I could have a natural birth next time but I won't be able to be induced if i go over. I am also hoping to breastfeed this time because I couldn't last time round as the epidural I had dried up my milk so I had hardly anything to give her after 10 days of trying & her losing 1lb in weight & spitting out my nipple everytime i tried to feed her i changed to formula & she soon gained her weight back & more so.

    It was so lovely seeing all the scan pics too I can't wait to have mine. I had to get the pics from last time out so I could have a look & a cry. It seems so long ago. I found a pic of me too when I had about 6 weeks to go & my god I was huge all out front & mainly water.

    Take care everyone Emmaxx
