Libby Trickett

In today’s episode, I interview Libby Trickett. Libby fell pregnant quite quickly after deciding to try.  At 7 weeks she had a dating scan to check where she heard the heartbeat. She saw her Obstetrician for her initial intake appointment at 9 weeks and sadly the baby had passed away at 8 weeks.

When she discovered she was pregnant for the second time with Poppy she decided to announce the pregnancy to friends and family much earlier. She hadn’t told anyone she was pregnant the first time around and she found it very challenging having to announce she had been pregnant but she was now having a miscarriage so she wanted to do things differently this time around.

Libby shares she “doesn’t do pregnancy well” She had morning sickness and a myriad of other ailments such as fluid retention and carpal tunnel syndrome which made both her pregnancies very uncomfortable.  At 37 weeks Libby began to experience flashing lights and stars in her vision and she went into the hospital and she was induced at 38 weeks due to gestational hypertension.

Topics Discussed

Two induced births, Gestational hypertension, PND

Today’s episode of the show is brought to you by Oricom’s new Secure895 – 5 – inch Digital Video Baby Monitor. This large 5″ baby monitor gives you the peace of mind and freedom to get back to your life. The Secure895 features motion auto tracking and a motorised pan-tilt camera controlled through the parent unit. Additional features include a room temperature display & alert, infrared night-vision capability, soothing lullabies and white noise.

 I’ve been lucky enough to have tried out the new Secure895 model and I love it. My favourite feature is the motorised pan tilt camera, which allows you to look around the room if your baby has moved in their sleep. This has been great for tracking Louis who starts at one end of the cot and ends up upside down and in the corner. Looking forward to having this lovely monitor on hand for the new baby next month. The Oricom Secure 895 model is exclusive to Baby Bunting so head into your nearest Baby Bunting to check it out for yourself.
