Morning all, just changed my name on the list as I was still on as TiredofZombies. Also put it in date order smile <anal>

Hope everyone is well, I'm feeling a bit ropy today. Still, got my booking in appt later today so that's something to look forward to. I know it's not very exciting but at least it feels like something is happening.

beckie90 Wed 09-Jan-13 09:29:59

feminist mine was done at 6+6 by lmp it was 36556, which was well in the range for that time seen as the range is so huuge, but then had my scan and thats when they put me back a week, and although its very possible for hcg to be that high at 5+6, for me I've always had average hcg levels its never been that high at 5.5 weeks with any of my pregnancys its always avaraged around 2000 at 5ish weeks with my other 3 pregnancys. But I know this could be different. It's gutting when its put back lol pregnancy is long enough as it is.

I sympathise with so tired but lack of sleep, I'm so so tired through day, then it gets to night I get it bed, still shattered but can't sleep mind on overdrive...then as I drop off ds2 wakes up, he's still a very bad sleeper at 21 months, he's averaging on getting up about 10x a night, does anyone have any sleep tips for him? Ds1 was the same, he just stopped in his own time

10+0

Aaw congratulations Skinny! grin Really pleased for you, fx for us both this time, I've got way more symptoms this time so I feel like it's going to be ok, even though there's no guarantees in life. I'll pop you on the list.

Fem, sorry to hear you've been bleeding, it's so stressful and worrying. Are you able to take it easy and rest? Have you already had an early scan at all? you can usually push to get one if you're bleeding. If you get any cramping or aching, even if it's mild, I'd ask for a scan/another scan. Fx it's nothing though, I bled for weeks in my 2nd pregnancy due to a cervical erosion. Totally harmless but very stressful as it could have been something more serious and they just weren't that bovvered about getting to the bottom of the bleeding. hmm

Skinny congratulations, welcome & well done you for not testing earlier and missing out on most of the early pg worry!
There are a huge number of us pg after mc so you're in good company. x

James, I'm with you, no way I could manage working & early pregnancy. I think we'll be stopping after this one as 2dc & pg sounds rough too!

Found heartbeat last night on the home doppler! I know it doesn't mean I'll get a baby at the end of it, but for now I'm feeling a bit more positive.

9+4

MrsWajs Wed 09-Jan-13 10:06:06

Following on from the mat jeans convo we had on the last thread, I've found blossom jeans with 70% off at the brand alley outlet if anyone fancied a pair - a much more reasonable £40-£50 rather than £100+ smile

ScubaSarah Wed 09-Jan-13 10:12:16

I've just given myself quite a fright on the bathroom scales. I know I pigged out a bit over Xmas but I wasn't drinking so figured it balanced out!

I have put on 4kg (!!!) since my BFP and I'm only 10+3. Eeek! I reckon 2 kg is pure boobage growth but if I keep going at this rate I'll be WELL overweight by my EDD hmm
Help! Is it just me?

MrsWajs Wed 09-Jan-13 10:21:00

I have avoided the scales for precisely that reason Scuba I piled it on first time around with DD and had put on nearly a stone in the first 3 months but then it evened out a lot and I actually started losing weight once I got to 7/8 months (also worrying) might weigh myself this avo at my mums, I know what I weighed the day before my BFP so it'll be pretty accurate! hmm

Noodles You're definitely not last on the list, I think that might be me!!

MrsPennyApple You're not alone in your anal-ness, I was going to suggest a date order too wink

Hi everyone, mainly just marking place as I feel totally rotten with a cold/cough/achey thing going on, but I now have my 12 week scan date smile Next Tuesday lunchtime. By dates I will be 12 + 2 then, but I am expecting them to put that back a bit.

ScubaSarah Wed 09-Jan-13 10:30:11

Waves, we have same EDD and same date for scan smile
Good luck xx

ScubaSarah Wed 09-Jan-13 10:31:23

Sorry, pressed send too soon
MrsWajs - thanks for the reassurance. I guess we've made a lot of new blood and amniotic fluid already but I'm going to be super healthy for next few weeks smilesmile

stats thread

Hope no-one minds, but I started a stats thread (using most upto date) because it's hard to scroll/keep track of convo with moosive lists.
If anyone can't add themselves, post here/pm me & I'll add you, not adding self until 12wk scan....exciting to think we can start adding sexes to the list in 10 weeks!!

MrsWajs - Yay, cheapo blossom jeans! Seriously they are the best, still have pair from last time, def getting another pair. Check ebay out too smile

Gary - Ooh, that is exciting to think! Not sure whether to find out sex this time, we didn't last time, tho my friend scanned me at about 38 weeks and she had a guess (not a lot of space in there to be certain at that point) and she was right. Last time I felt like I knew it was a boy from the very start so it was no surprise to me. This time not so sure...feeling like...maybe a girl??

MrsWajs Wed 09-Jan-13 12:36:45

I think I'm having a boy this time, no reason I just do. Will find out again if I can as I like to know these things - surprises aren't my thing! DP wants another girl but before we had DD he only ever wanted boys!! Funny how things change.

JollyToddles Wed 09-Jan-13 12:51:53

Can someone add me to the stats thread?

JollyToddles DC2 24th August ish

Thanks.

This pregnancy seems really different to last time. I do not recall feeling this rough. So I think it's a girl this time or there's two in there.

jolly - i know, first time mums and multiple pgs and girls are supposed to make you feel the sickest - but i was this bad with DS too, and again now so i guess im just a freak of nature!!

GaryBuseysTeeth Wed 09-Jan-13 14:16:26

Updated the list.

Sarah, with DS I put on 20lbs in the first trimester then another 20lbs in the last few weeks (and that all fell off in a few weeks) so I wouldn't panic about it!

snow, wajs...so convinced this is a girl that I've only been looking at girl bits (with DS I was convinced he was boy so didn't bother with girl stuff), it's depressing how much more nice stuff there is for girls out there!

RugBugs Wed 09-Jan-13 14:23:19

Can I have a non-pg related rant please??
Bought myself a lovely new winter coat in the boden sale and bloody bloody yodel are saying they left it 'at my front door' after calling twice yesterday. The fuckers absolutely did not and we have cctv coverage of our front door to prove they're lying!
It's so bloody cold and foggy here and my coat doesn't do up [cry]

Gary but boys have such funky t-shirts! DP loves his music and if we have a DS he'd go crazy on the band t-shirts (that and tigger, why is tigger stuff always for boys?)

rugbugs - yeah the little Ramones t shirts and football tops are v cute! Sorry about your coat smile

gary - havent started looking at baby thingys yet but i know it will be a pink explosion to counteract all the little boy blue smile

Yvonney Wed 09-Jan-13 14:37:45

rugs at least you can catch them out grin

Anyone not planning on finding out the sex? We did with DS (convinced he was a girl, spent the next 20 weeks adjusting to him being a he!) but I think with this one, we'll leave it as a surprise.

FoofFighter Wed 09-Jan-13 15:39:22

Afternoon ladies smile

Welcome Skinny smile that's such a lovely story, and no you aren't alone in being here after mc, I had mmc in April 12, also had secondary infertility since 2005 til that pregnancy (can only count from then as when started trying! could have been longer).

Well I felt so full of energy yesterday, that has gone lol! Slept well last night, struggled to get up, went to work, came home, went right back to bed and slept another 4 hours confused will be interesting to see if I sleep tonight!

Doppler hearing thingies (what are they actually called again? blush baby brain, forgot the word for yogurt last week!) - can I get recommendations please? Also I was really surprised to hear that you can hear from this early? How do you know it's not just you lol

very glad the list is in order now, was getting itchy fingers! <anal also>

9+1

FoofFighter Wed 09-Jan-13 15:41:13

Re gender - they don't tell you at scans where I live, so would need to be a private scan, am mildly wanting to know purely as the technology wasn't there with my previous 2 dc <ancient mom alert> but OH doesn't really want to know. So I'll be guided by him really, he may change his mind smile I keep picturing a girl, although am sure OH will be picturing a boy lol
