Here's a new thread for us summer mums-to-be.

A link to the first thread is here.

This first trimester will end eventually... it will, it will!!! grin

JollyToddles Tue 08-Jan-13 21:57:59

I certainly can't wait to be shot of this sickness!

I'm in bed. Despite having had a 1 hr nap this afternoon. I think I may have to hire a cleaner to get through the next few months!

Have you all seen www.pregnology.com/ this site? Some good wee pics smile

RuckAndRoll Tue 08-Jan-13 22:04:30

checking in smile
I've always had anxiety but never enough to need the Dr, it's ramping up now. dh watching me like a hawk at the moment. can't wait for scan to calm me down now.
sleep time now!

8+some

Found the latest (I think!) stats list back on page 20 of the old thread. I know loads of people have joined since then and several EDDs have changed, but I'm afraid I didn't have time to go through the thread and add them. Anyone missing feel free to copy and paste again with your details.

We must make a new year's resolution to keep our stats more easily-findable in future smile!

I've also tried to keep track of those who have very sadly left this bus but huge apologies if I've accidently included any names I shouldn't have.

Yay, new thread!

So sorry to hear your bad news amelia, that was me in early November, it's really crap. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to heal and grieve, other people will forget long before you do unfortunately but you will be ok. I wish you all the best for when/if you choose to ttc again. I conceived again two weeks after my mc, not recommending that course of action exactly as many people need time to recover physically and emotionally, but it can happen. Take care of yourself x

Rainbox that's good news, must have been very stressful for you!

Full of admiration for those of you working full time during this tired and sicky phase! I'm a sahm with two dc, I am exhausted, I just want to sleep. The only time I don't want to sleep is bedtime, when I cannot f-ing sleep for the life of me. I had hardly any sleep last night and today I nearly cried with tiredness. But once again now it's 11.30pm and I'm wide awake and chirpy hmm

amelierose very sorry to hear your news, take care of yourself.

Rainbox that must have been such a relief, enjoy the rest.

noodle 9 flights sound exhausting when feeling on top of the world, never mind when feeling a bit ick. Don't work too hard!

ruck did you decide what to do about your private scan?

oxford if I were in your situation in my company, I would tell the uber-boss. Does she have a family of her own? I just think you need to come clean with her, explain that you want to do your best for the company and your colleagues, it's not fair to your colleagues that you lead the project when you aren't 100% well, but you are 100% committed and will provide support and input into the project as much as you can but you can't lead it. I think chocolate's idea of trying to work from home one day a week might also be useful, especially as the pg progresses. Do you usually work very long hours on top of a 4 hour commute?

I told my boss at work today. I already work PT (3 days 8.30 - 3.30) but I do supervise a team. When I told her I was pg but keeping it quiet until the 21st (scan), she said "I am saying congratulations to you, but inside I'm thinking oh shit, what are we going to do with your work?!". Quite flattering really, I always think I am pretty expendable as a (very) part time worker, so I didn't really think they'd notice when I wasn't there for a year. Next step is for me to have the scan, and then if all is well they want a round table meeting with my team to discuss dividing up the work and planning for me leaving (which will hopefully mean just winding down my current caseload). All very efficient, which is helpful, and no big dramas. This is my third mat leave with the firm, so I was bit worried that they might think I was taking the P, but so far, so good.

Very very tired but like you James I can hardly keep my eyes open during teatime with the kids, and then wide awake at about 9.30pm, and cannot get out of bed in the mornings. Need to get this sorted out!

LoveBeingAMrs Wed 09-Jan-13 00:21:32

Can someone add me to list? Am on my phone so struggle to copy it! Im 24th aug!

Sorry to read about peoples losses lately :-( my heart goe out to you and lots of baby dust sent your way!

I've been ridiclously fatigued lately, sleeping easily 12 hours + a night, then beig tired all day! Had cold last 2 days and it absolutly knocked me and was in bed for 2 days (my 2 days off work, boo!!) Today when i woke up i felt amazing, just like i have a boost of energy so fingers crossed am out of the fatigued stage!! Midwife booking in appt on thurs! Yay!

I too am struggling with my jeans, i cant see much difference but struggling to do up jeans anymore, am 8+4!

Hope your all doing well and not too ill!!

WeeWeeWeeAllTheWayHome Wed 09-Jan-13 00:27:15

foof Ha, there's nothing quite as satisfying as a massive horse wee! It hasn't got to me that much (yet, probably) but I could really do without the constant nausea and upchucking. Bleurgh.

lovebeingamrs I'm 8+4 too but my EDD is the 16th. Is that because of different cycle lengths? <<dunce>>

Southport - the list is all of our estimated due dates and DC stands for Dear Child. So we can keep track on who is on the list, when we're each due and how many sproglets we already do/don't have. Hope that helps smile

Skinnydecafflatte Wed 09-Jan-13 06:08:25

Hello! Can I join please?

I found out today that I'm nine weeks plus. I had a mc at end of October and had not had a period since. I did a test just before Christmas thinking that if my brain knew I was not pregnant then my period would start, I was completly taken aback to see it was positive. Although they tell you you are very fertile after a mc I did not think it would happen as we have fertility problems and the last pregnancy was after two years of trying. We have one DC who has just turned three and he was after 2.5 years of TTC.

So blood tests show I'm nine weeks plus, thrilled to get past the 8 weeks that I was last time. Scan booked for 28th at which point I should get an accurate date. Could someone add me to the list as I can't do it on this. Stats are:

Skinnydecafflatte. DC2 10th August (best guess)

James very pleased to see you on the list too, we both fell off the June one about the same time. Fingers crossed

Look forward to getting to know you all.

Skinnydecafflatte Wed 09-Jan-13 06:10:01

Oops I mean I found out yesterday, forgot its morning. My sleep is rubbish at the moment, think i'll be falling asleep at my desk again today.

ScubaSarah Wed 09-Jan-13 06:32:12

Welcome Skinny and congrats!! I'm with you on the rubbish sleep, I get a lie-in on Weds but I'm wide awake anyway :-(

Hi ladies, sorry to hear about crappy sleep and being sick, hope you all start feeling better soon!

Thank you gary and foof I am trying to calm down despite still bleeding (lightly so far fx) and its looking a bit more pink now... Never before have I examined loo roll in so much detail!!

Trying to hold out until my booking app on Monday to ask the midwife to take my blood again to check hormone levels have gone up (progesterone was 19 and hcg was either around 1,100 or 11,000 I was so shaky I wasn't taking it all in). Will also check when they will offer me another scan as mine isn't booked until 7th Feb and don't think I can last that long. Will have a look into private if they won't offer me anything sooner, peace of mind is priceless...

Added myself to the list as the original EDD, as beckie said, it's an early scan so let's wait until the 12 week scan... One day at a time, thank you all for being here this is such a help and I really hope all goes well so we can all start enjoying some lighter hearted chat soon xx
