Shagged Out Viroids 6th Thread! From Early Days to Ready To Pop - Proof that JSing really does work!

Hello and welcome to another shiny fred for Just Shagging graduates!

The last fred was nice and busy so fingers crossed we get lots more members grin

We've just moved over from the Shagged Out Viroids Volume 5 thread, where we finally found out that a 'viroid' is from the original JSing thread 1, where someone was trying to type ladies (in reference to all the JSing ladies), but their phone decided to call us all viroids instead!
The name stuck and we've been the JSing viroids ever since.

Our stats thread is here, so if you find us, please add your stats too.

There is also a Just Mumming thread for grads of the grads thread confused grin

And if you want to find out what Just Shagging is about or catch up with the undergrads go say hello to the Just Shaggers here, now on the 12th thread thanks

thanks wing, sorry to hear you've lost your uncle, is there anyway you could arrange to stay overnight in London or drive down & back for the funeral?
It's got everything to do with the fred, it's about your life...so talk away.

Hooya, so glad to hear the scan went well biscuit (pretend it's a hula hoop) for you, must be hard craving stuff you can't buy locally.
Although that's your own fault for living in Japan envy

Hurrah for your scan too pineapple!

Had our NT this week, everything looks healthy, 14wks today, can feel it move, DH has felt it move & I feel pregnant so trying to stay positive (although post mc, not so easy)!

Something, sounds positive...I think you'll either have the baby in the next few days or have another few weeks of this!
Hope that's the last of his fits, how scary!

Kitten, I used to be hard as nails..however mention the words 'childs' 'hospice' or 'birth problems' & I'll be in tears. Welling up now just thinking of situations that make me cry ffs!
One Born last week was so upsetting, I can't even begin to imagine how you could be excited/relaxed pg after losing a baby.

Child, had a horrible labour last time but I'm trying to stay positive about this one. Have you mentioned to your MW how you feel?

Practisingparent Sat 09-Feb-13 21:28:06

Hi all, its been a while....
SO sorry wing about your unclethanks, You will feel better having attended the funeral, even tho it may take some energy and motivation!

hi to all those who dont know me, have been absent for ages! Im 30 weeks in 3 days, so feels like a landmark!

Tired congrats on sleepy new born (getting very excited now).

Something keep us posted, really sound like things are kicking off for you.

Am very interested in EPO tip, can anyone tell me more? Im desperate to start labour spontaneously this time, rather than waiting for dreaded induction like last time!

You may see more of me on this thread from now on, as really feel like its the home stretch! Loook forward to catching up with you all.

Practisingparent Sat 09-Feb-13 21:33:50

oooh, love OBEM. Couldnt watch it when ttc or after last childbirth, just tooo painfull! But am now riveted to it. That GA last week was scary, baby came out all doped up too!

Dysgu Sat 09-Feb-13 21:37:02

Sorry to hear/read about your uncle Wing - i was also wondering if there was any way you could stay down south for the days between you London trip and the funeral? Our usual solution in such cases is to find a Travelodge near relatives - so we can spend time with them but can escape too, which is good for everyone.

Child our biggest worry is that this time labour will be 'normal' and we won't know what to do and I am worried that I won't be able to cope. Both DDs arrived early and very quickly so we have never done thing 'properly' - all the medical people tell me that this one is 'probably' going to be the same as the last two but there is no way of actually knowing what is going to happen.

I had my appointment at the diabetes clinic yesterday following my positive GTT result for GD. The specialist said she doubted the accuracy of my result considering my diet, weight and weight gain (or not) and the fact that I had had double steroids in the run up to the test and am on these progesterone pessaries. Anyway, they are going to treat me as though I am diabetic so I am now testing my blood 3 or 4 times a day - so far, all results have come back perfectly normal so it looks like I will just have to monitor my blood and they will see me every other week for check-ups and extra scans.

And then, the big worry of the day is that I was spotting this morning! It was not much and only really (TMI) when I wiped. I probably wouldn't have noticed it really if I wasn't watching out for such things - especially with the baby being quiet these days! It has been moving about and we have been listening to it on our fetal heart thingy but this is what happened with DD1 when she arrived at 32 weeks... I lost my plug on the Tuesday (but didn't know it was that and just told the MW about some spotting) and the went quiet and arrived very quickly on Sunday!

So we are waiting to see what happens - and I really should make a start on my school reports and finish the assessments I didn't mark yesterday in case things kick off soon! Should probably pack hospital bag too.

Dysgu Sat 09-Feb-13 21:38:47

Hi Practising - nice to see you again. I think you are just a day or so ahead of me.

im keeping it stum on facebook but i will deffo have a son/daughter on the 25th!

does this make sense? im having a pain every 6ish mins when it happens my stomach goes so tight it feels like it cant go any tighter or my skin feels really stretched? some of them make me wamt to poo. there uncomftable especially my back but doesnt feel like it hurts enough?

tmi but just wiped got discharge streaker.with red blood

Rockchick1984 Sat 09-Feb-13 22:27:01

Something that sounds like it was a bloody show, all normal. If the tightenings are regular they could be early contractions or they may be braxton hicks - braxton hicks will normally go away if you have a warm bath so maybe try and see? If its labour will you need an emergency c section or will you give birth vaginally?

if im dilating ill go for a vbac

tightnings are bang on 6 mins apart

Practisingparent Sat 09-Feb-13 22:53:03

Excitng something, could be the beginning of contractions or Braxton Hicks, just wait and see if they get stronger. Also sounds like a 'show', all good signs that baby is preparing the exit route!!! keep us informed. Good Luck!

dysgu the race is on!

got to go to triage passed a clot with bright red bleeding

Rockchick1984 Sun 10-Feb-13 00:50:31

Hope you're ok something keep us up to date when you can. thanks

aparantly the bleeding and clots are down to a cervical ectropian though i had one of those before and it was nothing like this

Practisingparent Sun 10-Feb-13 07:35:09

Hi something, not sure what that is, but hoping everything is alright now. Are you still in hospital?

Hooya Sun 10-Feb-13 08:52:46

Good luck something, is it bad that I am enjoying PlugWatch? smile

Sorry Wing, so difficult to deal with something like that anyway, without all the pg hormones and worries sad

Dysgu good luck, I hope it's not early (unless you want it to be of course!)

GBT wow for feeling the baby move! I am so excited about that part, I think it will still seem a bit abstract until then!

Child I am blush to say I am utterly terrified of labour and know I would not cope with it. The relief when my obstetrician said I can have a section was huge! But I am in constant admiration for everyone who goes through it!

Practising and Dysgu loving the race, who will pop first?!

My stomach is wrecked again today. Has anyone heard of people becoming lactose intolerant during pregnancy? My stomach was fine again, then I drank milk yesterday as all the advice seems to suggest I should, and now I am running to the loo every 5 mins shock

WingDefence Sun 10-Feb-13 09:04:09

Hooya, it is a bit odd when you put it like that (Plug Watch) but it is a bit weird that we're all watching the process of a woman discharging a mucus from her cervix! confused wink shock

Saying that, do keep us informed something...

Practising, how nice to have you back!

Re: the funeral, yes I could stay down after my work dates and change my train ticket to come back up on the Monday after the funeral but I'll then have been five days away from DS and DH and I don't think I could cope with that. My parents will be travelling down at some point too to the funeral so one option DN suggested to me last night was that I go down with then in their car on the Sunday (they were going down on the Sat but would leave it a day later so I have a day's rest in-between travelling) and then get the train back home on the Monday evening.

Anyway, better get dressed. Hope you all have a relaxing Sunday planned. It's chucking it down here so I'm going to go through all DS's baby clothes this afternoon with DM! smile

WingDefence Sun 10-Feb-13 09:05:07

*DM suggested

frogchops Sun 10-Feb-13 09:16:01

Heehe plug watch!! I don't think I've ever imagined I'd be involved in the virtual plug watching of someone I don't actually know! Funny!

tiredteddy Sun 10-Feb-13 10:21:25

wing really sorry to hear about your uncle. I think your DM suggestion to go with them in the car sounds sense. That takes the pressure of you travelling alone and you can be together to support each other. Hugs.

Good luck something keep us posted with your progress. Soon there will be two babies on the thread.

We are ok, busy as ever in the TEDDY household. Fern is so far proving to be a really good baby. She's feeds and sleeps well and my heart melts every time I look at her, she's perfect. We are going out this afternoon to the boys favourite babysitters (a friends daughter) 18th party. Nearly half term too, anyone have exciting plans?

StuckOnARollercoaster Sun 10-Feb-13 12:58:25

Hope you are ok something just caught up on last 2 pages and sounds like its pretty nerve wracking...
Frogchops I am also hooked now...
Just hope that all is ok as things definitely sound like they are happening.

Fern sounds adorable teddy, I must be getting ready for our baby as I never used to get emotional about babies but its starting to happen. Have even started looking in shops at baby clothes while picking up normal shopping now! (Not bought anything yet though!)

Good luck tomorrow wing hope its not too upsetting or tiring for you

Hooya I think you definitely can. I've stopped being nauseous but I am still being sick every so often and the common factor does seem to be milk beforehand, but wierdly its not every time I have milk. So a cup of tea the other day set me off, but another day I had a big craving for chocolate milk and I was fine after that. Have given up trying to understand my body - the answer to every thing strange that happens is - 'its because I'm pregnant'!

Sorry can't name check all - have just gone up the last few posts - but its really lovely to read and keep up with everyones news!
The only biggie for me is that I think on Friday night I felt my baby for the first time - some very odd sensations in my tummy that were definitely not wind! Made me very happy and smiley - but now I want to feel it more - damn that placenta at the front!!!

apparantly its a sore patch of skin on the cervix but how would that cause a clot? still bleeding and contracting. am knackered.

MrsBri Sun 10-Feb-13 17:31:16

So sorry about your uncle, Wing. I remember you saying you were going to visit him. FWIW, I agree that travelling with your parents on the Sunday is the best idea, if staying over isn't practical (which it isn't).

Sorry you're so tired, Something. Is this slow labour? Surely getting to the 25th isn't going to happen? Or I'm sure you really hope it won't. You must just want baby here now.

GBT - I missed your post about movement. Isn't it lovely? And I do find it reassuring to feel Baby B, so I'm sure after the MC it is for you too.

On Friday night, DH had his face right up to my belly, talking to the baby, as he does all the time, and baby decided to say hello by kicking where his head / face was! Most amusing, though DH only felt one of them, sadly! Give it a couple of weeks and it could lead to a black eye!

Hooya - I share your fear re birth, but after telling the MW about it, I was told to just do research about it, go to antenatal and I'll be fine. Hmmmm. I doubt it, but not much I can do, as I doubt they'll encourage an ELCS, even though in theory we can request them here now. And a CS has its own downfall with the recovery time etc, which I'd rather not go through unless it's necessary. And there's only 2 ways out, so I'm kinda stuck!

Dysgu - fingers crossed baby stays put for a good while longer.

Sorry if I've missed anybody.

Got room for a small one? Thought I'd better come over to not miss the live birth of somethingssomethingsmall It's very early days but have had 2 bfp's with 10miu ic's, I've been on and off this thread b4 (was livismum) but hoping this time I'm here to stay for at least 8 months smile smile

tiredteddy Sun 10-Feb-13 18:10:10

Welcome three kindles I remember you as LIVISMUM. So very pleased for you to be back! Now I'm going to have to continue lurking even longer grin
