Welcome to our new home! Right, time to get that baybee out lazy!
There is always time to worry.
Such a waste of our time though! I'm off to the docs in a min to check my BP. Wobble cramps are slightly better (although I've done very little so far today) but these antibiotics are horrible and repeating on me Yuck.
Womble cramps. Not wobble!
Ouch faif. Naughty Pickle!
BTW, my friend had pre-eclampsia quite severely near the end and they induced her. She had a natural delivery (with an epidural) that seems to have been pretty untraumatic, and both she and baby were fine.
Dor I'm impressed that you are already contemplating a second at this stage!
Hurray, BP was
pregnancy ridiculously low normal! They do 3 readings and it was about 120/70, 110/60, 105/60. One less thing to worry about for now and will keep chowing down the antibiotics. Good call not going into work though because being at home is fine, walking back from car into house after popping to docs the fanjo pains started again.
Congratulations on hitting 6 weeks euro!
I started watching the penguin programmes (had them recorded) but found eggs being stolen and the one penguin nearly dying too traumatic (genuine tears) so I will have to stagger watching them! Such a preggo!
I cannot watch the penguin programme...caught a bit of the one with the cormorants and just found it too distressing.
I am SO ill.....at the GP in just over an hour, but not sure what he will give me as I'm breastfeeding. I have reached the point though where as much as I would like to avoid taking anything which may come through my milk I am in danger of becoming so ill I have to drop the b/f for my own health. I could seriously bang my head against a brick wall the sinus pain is so bad now. I just feel dreadful and night feeds are traumatic for me, and LittlePrince must be feeling my stress because he's not settled well.
HOLB home today and I feel more relaxed knowing he's here if i need help and Little is now fast asleep in his moses basket.
<gentle hair strokes rolly>
Not long til you see the doctor. Hopefully they can offer you antibiotics that will be ok with breast feeding. Would be gutting to stop but like you say, you have to think about both the health of you and LittlePrince. Good to know HOLB is there and Little is sleeping now
well i'm allergic to the entire penicillin family so it narrows down my options somewhat....possible that i'll be given a steroid nasal spray for the the sinuses which should be fine.
I don't normally get ill, if I do I ride it out - but obviously my body is under strain from birth/breastfeeding etc and I don't have the reserves to see this one off, so I do need help this time.
Aw rollo that sounds horrible. I hope you will get some relief soon.
I am almost at breaking point with tiredness. We are a happy bunch today aren't we?
Rollo hope the doctor has managed to help you.
I'm happy! I think, think, I felt movement today! A buzzing feeling...it did it a few times and felt odd. If it wasn't movement then I have a funny tummy
Ah blue how exciting! I drank lots of cold drinks because that was what made Pickle wriggle to start with! How many weeks are you now?
jeff you have my sympathies. Crawling into work then crawling hind to bed. Plenty of early nights. Sod the housework etc. can Mr Jeff
forgive me, his initials have popped out my head! cook?
I swear this baybee is trying to escape
15 Weeks so I thought it might be too early but I've felt it off and on today...if it's not baby I don't know what it is!
I started to think I felt movement at 17 weeks. Like being tickled from the inside!
On a happy note, we looked at shift options for me coming back (providing work agree it!) and MSB has agreed to me dropping to 35 hours a week (otherwise on long days I'd have to do an extra shift apngj to make my hours right). We have devised a plan so Pickle will only have to do 1/2 a day in nursery a week
Ooh that's good! We'll be on three days nursery if I can get part time...more than if like but we've no family or support here!
blue how amazing to feel something! I am very jealous.
faif I hope you are feeling better.
This is a long way off for us, but our plan from the start has been for me to take 6 months, and then for both of us to try to drop down to 4 days a week for a while, so sproglet would only be in nursery for 3 days. That is dependent upon both employers agreeing though. If not, KFZK would have an absolute right to take the rest of "my" year under the new parental leave rules so we might do that - I am the higher earner by a fair chunk at the moment so it would make sense. Who knows how it will all pan out though. It is in the far distant future for us!
I felt movement really late probably because
I am fat I had an anterior placenta.
I am managing to take 6 months maternity leave and then will be going back to work 30 hours a week. Currently The Mister works shifts and my Mum is happy to be flexible so she will look after The Little Mister when The Mister is at work.
I have to say that I am loving life as a Mum although my body seems to be falling apart. I have a sore knee, horrible tendonitis in my left wrist and sore shoulders. I am going back to Pilates tomorrow which will be the first proper exercise I have done in ages. Goodness knows how I will cope!
Is it 6 Weeks today euro? ! Time will stay flying once you get to the 12 Weeks scan...I felt it dragged till then and now it's going so quickly. Although the manic period at work is on just now so that may be why!
Euro is it your scan today? Thinking of you.
I can't allow myself to think of more than a couple of weeks ahead at the mo. maybe after 12 weeks I might be able to actually plan.
Good luck euro! Hoping (and praying to my Deity of choice) for a wriggly baybee with a pounding heartbeat.
I dreamt I had the baybee. It was a girl and I had her at 32 weeks so she was tiny and looked a bit like a sea monkey. She got the idea of Brest feeding though. Very surreal to wake up and still be pregnant!
Well I'm definitely on the mend, I can now walk and not always have contractions. I was cynical but maybe a combination of resting and the antibiotics for the UTI have done the trick, although the antibiotics are giving me terrible heartburn!
Have managed to clean the bathroom and kitchen (significant progress). Rang in fit for work from Monday. Can't wait to finish though. 3 weeks today
Ooo we just did the sechs for the first time since The Little Mister was born. I was scared it was going to hurt but it was fine.
That's good news dor! Are you settling in to your new home?
Yes it's lovely to be in our house. Poor Edward though has a horrible cold and woke himself up when he couldn't breathe properly. I think it must have scared him because he was inconsolable. Horrid
Any advice on what can I do to ease his congestion?
You can get saline spray that's safe for baybees (Dsis has already made sure I'm stocked up) which helps with congestion. Poor fella!
