Place marking for Sparks's sneeze!

SweetieTime Thu 16-May-13 18:38:41

Evening all thanks for doing the new fred boo

Sparks you have a few watchers ready for the sneeze. How are things?

I will share this link here too. It was the story the nurse was telling us about a single embie splitting into quads shockshock

I have my booking appointment tomorrow, so what do I need to ask? Do you get nuchal scans on NHS? or is it like IVF postcode lottery? I am not sure what else I need to consider really. Any tips gratefully received.

Withalittlesparkle Thu 16-May-13 19:02:48

Calm down ladies we have a few weeks till I'm due to big sneeze!!

Sweetie you should be offered the nuchal on nhs! The midwife should go through everything with you, when your appts will be, where you can give birth, what tests you will be offered etc etc I'd consider asking about special support for twins, antenatal class etc

Keep how you doing?

Marking place until I can think of something to say

sweetie depends on your area for twins. I couldn't here, they only do the blood test which is no use for dcda twins. Yours are dcda aren't they? Separate sacs separate placentas? If they do nuchal scanning its less accurate as can't be combined with the blood test so easily, I think.... On my twins thread I think almost noone had it. Ask for a good consultant if there's one you want in particular, as 60% of twin births are c section due to positions etc (LOVED my section, if i have another I'll not go vbac, much better than my vb!). Think that's it for twins at this stage...?? I have a book I can send you if you like? I'll look at title tomorrow, by an American obstetrician so a bit OTT but about twin pregnancy. and we have a secret twin mum sanity saver fb group of my mn twin mum friends we won't mention at this point . Can you tell I'm ridiculously excited for more Brooking twins?!

Anyone sneezed yet?

Oh, its hospital birth only for twins as its considered high risk, and you'll be consultant led care. In most places anyway. You need to be able to have help for twin 2 if needed. In our trust a consultant now HAS to attend a twin vb too after some bad outcomes.

Sorry sweetie that should be a doctor, could be a registrar not a consultant. Not that any of this is important yet, but it'll be a bit more restrictive than singleton pregnancy.

The horror, I just broke the toilet sear!! Literally made me cry! I'd gone to the bathroom because I felt really sick, so sat on the loo seat, leaning over the sink and it just cracked under my apparently humungous ass!!! So mrS had to bring a stall into the bathroom so I didn't have to sit on the floor being sick hmm just feel rotten tonight

keepitgoing Fri 17-May-13 01:31:53

Oh poor sparks...

Sweetie are you OK?

I had some brown cm yesterday morning, so was/am v worried, though I know it's normal, and have had no more. Argh, 12 weeks today, was hoping to relax now. Maybe after next Sat's scan...

Dh got the job!! V excited.

I am on hold till next Friday but checking in when I can x

sparkle. I say blame the toilet seat. My 23 week ish pregnant friend, who's normal sized not overweight, just shattered a toilet seat. Faulty I say ;) . However hers was way less traumatic as not at home so not her problem...

Withalittlesparkle Fri 17-May-13 06:27:38

Keep that's amazing, so glad he got the job! Another local Brooker woooooo

A little bit of brown cm is normal, but if you're worried speak to someone

Withalittlesparkle Fri 17-May-13 06:28:29

Dream there was a crack on the toilet sear anyway.... MrS assures me is was breaking anyway

SweetieTime Fri 17-May-13 08:12:54

Sparks don't worry about the toilet seat, it is an excuse to get a new one. Have a look at this one I want one of these for my new house. It is lovely well as lovely as a toilet seat can get and I think it might be right up your street. Sorry you are feeling bleugh, hope DH is looking after you.

Keep well done DH on getting his job, at least you and kip won't go hungry now. 12 weeks OMG where does the time go, how is the bump coming along? Did you have a nice time away with parents?

Dream thanks for that, I have a feeling I will be classed as high risk due to my age, twins, first DC etc. Watch this space ladies as OBEM is filmed at my local hospital!!! As if, I am joking before you all go getting excited. I think I will be pushing ignore the pun for a c-section too. I have always been terrified of the giving birth bit and I think knowing I will be more likely to have a section has made me more chilled, if that makes sense. DH is keen to do as many tests as possible bloody men so I think we will try for the nuchal scan, even if we have to go private. I have ordered the book (Keep the one you recommended) but I think it is just pregnancy so if you no longer need your book I would give a good home or just let me know the title, there are a few twin ones on Amazon but not sure which to go for. Also did you have to take any additional supplements? I will ask the midwife today what she suggests too.

Hope everyone else is ok and ready for the weekend. Yeah!!!

Sweetie how was your booking in appt?

SweetieTime Fri 17-May-13 20:41:56

Well I am booked in, the midwife was nice enough but not very knowledgable on twin pregnancies. She did say as community midwife she deals with the majority normal pregnancies and I don't fall into that category. She has referred me to Multiples Clinic as Dream says for consultant led care. I was weighed and given loads of leaflets to read, no blood or pee tests though. She did write me a prescription for calcium & Vit D supplements as I don't drink milk. I have to go back at 12 weeks, she also ordered nuchal screening but didn't know if they do it for twin pregnancies so will ask the screening team to ring me hmm So that is it really, pretty much as I expected.

How are you feeling? Are you still feeling off it?

Withalittlesparkle Fri 17-May-13 21:03:52

It must be difficult to do a booking in when they know this early on that its twins but you're officially a mwepp, how very exciting!

I feel ok, I went to work today but now I feel sick again! I guess it could just be one of those things, like its my body saying its tired!!

We have our crib now too, so that's exciting! It's the one MrS used when he was a new born so its a real family heirloom, it just needs a bit of a wash down because its been in sils loft for 3 years! I'm only using sheets and cellular blankets so I'm literally ready for anything baby to arrive now, well the nursery isn't ready but at least he has somewhere to sleep if he does arrive early!
