  1. Looking for other australians in this message board i am so greatful for this website and i would be even more greatful if some other aussies could fall in here so i dont feel a bit alone in my own country
  2. Okay, Im a shy person with anxiety so I hate talking to people at the best of times.. so I'm looking for some advice. How do i bring our relationship up with our doctor in regards to getting genetic testing.. ect. I always wanted testing no matter who i marry (theres a blood disorder in my mothers family. Boyfriend is from my fathers side) but i just dont know how to go about it.
  3. This stuff i hear so often its ridiculous. Also my aunt works with people with special needs, specifically with one young man who everyone, including her has "no disorders no nothing, its simply because their parents are first cousins" and then everyone proceeds to compare this issue with a local family who is children from a father/daughter relationship. These things just get passed down. My aunt says these things, her children hear, they think its the way it is and teach their kids the same. In fact unless you go looking for it (like i did, thank god for this site) noone ever talks about
  4. I tell the truth, that we've known each other 10 years and met in high school. And thats where i leave it lol
  5. Thank you all so much. I really appreciate all this. And as for genetic counseling i already decided i wanted that done anyway. When i was pregnant before we didnt mention it to the doctor because i was terrified and people had just found out about us and were very cruel, which had me in a state of anxiety about everything. But next time around the counseling will be done and sorted first. Its just a little hard for me to tell people because while im happy and wouldnt change things at all, id rather not broadcast it out loud.
  6. Happy new year. Ive been thinking seriously about my life goals and my partner and i's life goals, and children are a conversation i have a large part of anxiety about. I was hoping for some of you with children to.. i guess give me some reassurance? Happy stories ect. I have mentioned on a previous post that we were pregnant before but due to stress and other things we had a misscarriage and i have so many fears about trying again.
  7. Lurr here, made an account thank you for your support. Its so comforting to know theres a place i can turn to. The miscarriage had a pretty big impact on me, it led to a discovery i have bipolar disorder. And you're a little bit right - high school was 7 years ago for me. My partner deals easier than i do with all the stress, i am actually his second cousin relationship. The first one he has a 5 year old daughter with, and they didnt know they where related until she was born. His ex flew under the radar for the most part as she was older than him and didnt go to school with us, but you
