Let's call it boredom teamwork!!

DanyTargaryen Wed 26-Sep-12 15:03:50

Yay! (Sorry if it looked if I was taking over there, just trying to be helpful grin)

DizziDoll Wed 26-Sep-12 15:27:11

I was referring to myself really blush. I think you have done a fine job grin.

Wowsmile I've been away for a couple of days and there's a whole new thread!! I've tried to catch up but feel like I've missed loads.

I've been on a bed rest after suffering my first ever migraine. I lost my vision and feeling in both hands but didn't get a headache until the second day. Doctor thinks it's connected the pg as blood sugars were low, I normally have a VERY sweet tooth but sugary things make me feel sick. Being made to eat chocolate was tough grin Although it really did scare me sad

Welcome all newbies! Sorry to hear symptoms are developing for some but excited that midwife appointments are fast approaching x

Hello was catching up reading the thread on my phone in the middle of the night and wanted to say pear I have a retroverted uterus which is the same as a tilted one. It didn't make any difference to pregnancy/ birth (I have 2 DCs). But, when I went for a smear I told them and they found it helpful to know. I had had a few rubbish experiences with smear tests before I knew so I guess it's useful to tell 'em! Knowledge is power! Also I didn't find the internal scan painful at all (had it on 2 previous occasions).

Reassuring to know many of you are feeling nauseous and tired - I find that the more I sleep, the better I feel. I nearly fell asleep in the toilet at work on Monday... a low point!

Where I live we can go for early scans if we are worried, but I think I might not bother... I think the stress leading up to and going to a scan will be too much! And although obviously it gives some reassurance it's still early days. I'm 6+6.

booboomonster Wed 26-Sep-12 16:00:27

ooh and I have had awful headaches too, though not a migraine - Ellie - that sounds awful. Sounds like you better get back into chocolate? I find I like sweets more when pregnant (despite not usually liking them - I'm a chocolate girl grin. Specially those really disgusting fizzy ones hmm)

Just checking in to the shiny new thread!

grin

EllieBuffalo Wed 26-Sep-12 16:04:51

BooBoo I always thought it would be awesome when I finally got pregnant to be able to have an excuse to eat lots of chocolate and now I am I can't face it sad

EllieBuffalo Wed 26-Sep-12 16:13:38

Hehe - just noticed the thread is called May 3013 which I think is quite apt as the time feels like it is dragging so much it'll be 3013 soon grin

Hi ladies i just came home to a horrible letter. I have posted about it in pregnancy and don't want to say it all again. Basically i had a letter saying i have a red blood cell abnormality and that myself and my DP have to see a sickle cell and Thalassemia specialist on Monday. MONDAY i wont eat or sleep until then.Im so stressed and i dont even know what it all means.I googled a bit but it wasn't good so i stopped looking.

Hi all. Have updated with me and mwnci.

Hi ellie, that migraine sounds awful and really scary. Are you feeling better now?

Woops blush. It was a test to see who was paying attention.

beaut shit. Off to read your thread. Stay away from google!!

Hi beaut, poor you, that's not a nice thing to come home to at all. You really should try to eat and sleep though, you've got to look after yourself! I know it sounds flippant because I don't know what it feels like but if you can, do try not to worry- stressing is only bad for you, it won't solve any problems and there might not be anything to worry about anyway.

Monday is horribly long time to wait for that sort of thing though, can you book in lots of distractions between now and then?

Picklep Wed 26-Sep-12 16:29:47

hooya yes it sounds very similar. The spotting is very unnerving but the midwife said it could be implantation or my cervix, apparently with the rise in hormones the cells around the cervix can fall away and itcould be likethis for whole pregnancy. I also have a tilted cervix, wonder if that has made difference. During the scan they checked there was no blood around the baby which was a massive relief. I'm just willing the hours away to get to 12 weeks to breath a tiny bit easier. Good luck for Monday x

DanyTargaryen Wed 26-Sep-12 16:31:55

Sorry! My fault, pulled the most recent list off the old thread and then didn't think to check it! Sorry folks, unintentional!

Picklep Wed 26-Sep-12 16:33:09

beaut what a thing to come home to?? Heading over to read now. Monday is a long time to wait, but i agree with the others stay away from google, it won't help anything at this point. You do also need to keep your strength up . X

Thanks Ladies i love having this thread here for the great support. I had to call DP crying at his work. I feel bad now that he has the worry too but he needs to ask for the day off next week to attend the appointment.

Totally understandable, beaut, I would feel the same as you having to ring OH. Hopefully he can give you a big squeeze when you see each other and you can try to help each other to not worry. Feel free to have a rant here though, and we will tell you to eat chocolate and treat yourself!

Fertility - I had my MW booking appointment at home a couple of weeks ago. She came round to the house, took blood, sent me off to go and give her a urine sample and do a chlamydia swab, took my blood pressure, retrieved her stethoscope from the dog who had taken it off to his bed when she wasn't looking (luckily she likes dogs!) and filled in a mountain of paperwork about my health, any concerns (financial, domestic etc etc), relevant medical issues in my family and DH's (who wasn't there but I knew most of it anyway) and gave me a load of stuff to read. She'd also told me to go and get a pregnancy pack from the GP beforehand so I could read up on which scans and tests I wanted (all of them please!). Also got given the first Bounty pack which has a lot more leaflets in, money off vouchers, pregnancy info and a voucher for another Bounty pack to collect from Boots/Superdrug with even more crap useful stuff in it. Was all very nice and friendly and relaxed, and made it all feel real for the first time. I am however suffering massively from information overload and am actually a little bored of reading about pregnancy stuff now as a result.

Beautician - am thinking about you, that's a horrible thing to come home to. Fingers crossed for you.
