Checking in! I'm well over half way! At the very latest, they'll be here in 18 weeks exactly!

cherrycherry41 Sat 11-May-13 00:24:23

Eeek legally very exciting! My dads next door neighbours was telling me about her twins the other day- natural births on separate days (like 23.50 and 00.10 something like that), carried them until 38 weeks and they were 7lbs+ each! Although this was 18 years ago i still find it amazing!!

thanks for doing the new thread! Great news from all todays scanees & good that Natalie's husband didn't need another operation. If he pays his NICs,surely he's entitled to something... I don't understand at all!!

I'll be 18 weeks on Sunday & I think I've only.put on a couple of lbs thus far,which is pleasing me but then I remind myself that I was starting from a stone heavier than I was when I fell pregnant with DS smile

No scan date yet either,I was told it would be automatically generated & when I asked (dubiously, after prior experience) how long I should wait before chasing it up,they said give it til 18 weeks,so they've got til Wednesday (great minds mon!) before I start making enquiries. Prior to kicking off!!

Naughty naughty! Still 2 more posts for last thread. I'm off to finish it. grin

Congrats on all the good scan news! So exciting!

Happy birthday Roxvox.

Hope you re feeling ok bronze.

Cuille just an idea, and you might already know this, I found a good probiotic tablet helped with thrush.

I've gained a lot of weight sad about 5kg and I'm only 17 weeks! Seems more than with ds. Hope it starts to slow down or am in trouble. Am normally about 55kg, might have been a bit underweight in dec due to stress so maybe thats got something to do with it???

The only thing I have craved so far was when I was about 8 weeks pregnant and being sick everyday. I woke at 2am really wanting to eat a beef flavoured pot noodle. I got one the next day and is was yummy (and stayed down!)

I haven't had one since though

roofio87 Sat 11-May-13 07:14:00

morning all,checking in. I've been craving lots of fruit recently, not a bad thing at all!! I'm up this Saturday morning with a taste of what its like to have kids, 3.5 yo nephew came racing in "auntie Ruth its 07:00 (said zero seven zero zero as he reads the clock) so I can get up now!!!"grin

Soupqueen Sat 11-May-13 07:14:52

Morning all! Thanks for shiny new thread grin

I've not been around this week due to work being mental, and doing a bit of work travel. I am ridiculously tired, plan to do very little this weekend.

natalie, I've not had the full results, expecting them early next week..... I also have my anomaly scan on Thursday ( moved to 18 weeks because of my super high HCG levels), so just need to get through next week, with good news X 2 and can then relax.

Saw the midwife for my 16 week check in Wednesday (at 17 weeks), everything fine. She got the heartbeat immediately, 130 bpm so if the old wives tale is to be believed, it's a wee boy in there. My cravings are mainly for cheese, but I'm not reading too much into it as that was true pre pregnancy too! orange, she confirmed that being veggie can give increased HCG, so hopefully that eases your mind a little!

Have a lovely weekend all!

Tx for new thread cherry
Not sure about old wife's tale as baby's hb at first two scans was over 150bpm and we def saw a w...y confirming its a boy yesterday. Suddenly overwhelmed with what to buy etc plus we just put in a third offer for a house! So moving prob late July/ August should be fun.

legally felt goosebumps reading your post, you are over halfway mark, it's really going to start happening soon.......eek

Tummy feels noticeably heavy now am 20+3 weeks, want to start yoga but spdhmm, also got the 'your belly is big for 5months' comment last week but hey ho.

Morning! Thanks for the new thread, 2 weeks in Tuesday until my scan at 20+1. Realised already that feeling baby has its downsides as I now want to feel movement all the time so I know I have a healthy babybell in there!

Claphammama I definitely agree, babies need calcium so when I eat cheesy chips its because the baby asked for it grin

Happy weekend, hope you all have nice relaxing things planned- and Soup just stay horizontal and get someone to feed you cheesy stuff smile

Checking in.

Day off just me and dd today so lots of housework sad

Thanks for letting me know soup, you never know how true things are on the Internet so glad to know the midwife thought being veggie made hgg high.

I am not able to eat milk but have also been wanting cheese. And cheap milky chocolate. Also orange juice, that one I can have.

Carpet measurer coming this morning then a friends birthday party this evening. Been very tired playing with my niece every evening instead of flopping but been nice to practice having a little one around. The only problem is having only one loo with all the extra people.

checking in!

flying back to London today - back to the reality... :-( but desperately missing my little boy!!

Thanks for the new thread cherry
Dp's older brother and sister are twins born on different days (but they are in their 40's so not the same ones as you know).
legally only 18 weeks - that seems like nothing!
20 weeks today for me and scan on weds. We're going to take dd with us. She's 1.11 - hope she doesn't get too freaked out!
I've been craving the same stuff as last time. Sharp drinks (oj, limonata) and sweets. Another girl? Won't be finding out at the scan.

roxvox Sat 11-May-13 08:14:39

Thanks for the new thread cherry, I wonder if it will see us all through the halfway point!

Thanks to everyone for my birthday wishes! I went shopping and bought some next maternity jeans (with a band that goes under the bump) and they are just so much more comfortable than normal jeans! Very pleasing.

So pleased that everyone's scans went well! I think I am subconsciously quite anxious about ours on Tuesday, so it's lovely to see that you're all getting positive scans. Can't wait!

Today is weigh-in day (always weigh on Saturday before I eat anything). I am yet to weight today, but up until now I had put on about 7lbs I think (only in the last few weeks though). Still no real bump here (20w on Wednesday), but family keep assuring me it's because I am tall! I would like a nice bump though instead of this oddly shaped hard lump protruding from my tummy!

roxvox Sat 11-May-13 08:42:51

I've just weighed and my weight hasn't changed for 2 weeks. My weight stayed the same for the first 17 weeks, then jumped 7lbs one week, and has now stayed at that new heavier measurement for 3 weeks. Seems a bit odd! Not worried though smile

roxvox Sat 11-May-13 08:43:45

Well that made no sense. Message to Mumsnet - please add some features so we can edit/remove posts!

HotSoupDumpling Sat 11-May-13 08:47:00

Marking place, thanks for the new thread cherry!

Am surviving on regular jeans with elastic band extension, then long maternity tops to cover it up. But I've done a few massive maternity shops online (I always end up returning most of it and only keeping a couple of items, but it saves a trek into town and the inevitable frustration when they have limited stock...).

Felt the first champagne bubble sensations this morning! Or was it digestion...?

pinkbuttons Sat 11-May-13 08:47:30

Thanks for the new thread cherry
Exciting that were all nearly have way and some of us are already!
1 more week for me until 20 weeks but who knows maybe this baby will be a week or so early making me half way now smile
Also been getting comments about how big my bump is funky and asking if Im having twins... not helpful.

pinkbuttons Sat 11-May-13 08:55:59

Just got my email from babycentre telling me about this week of being pregnant, and it says Congratulations your halfway there?! Now Im confused is 19 weeks half way or 20 weeks?

Hi all, just marking my place, I've still got 3 weeks till I'm 20 weeks and scan, so will be touch and go if this thread lasts that long! Having a lovely lie in with my girls as DH is in Portugal this weekend on a stag do!

Cravings are definitely more savoury, but heartbeat at 16wk app was 149bpm so your guess is as good as mine, still undecided as to whether to try and find out what flavour smile
