Thanks for the new thread...congrats GTbaby.

Currently in bed with what I presume is round ligament pain watching that itv programme called Dinner Date, totally naff but addictive.

Natalieand Tue 28-May-13 14:48:37

Blimey all these boys and anterior placentas! Mental!

roofio87 Tue 28-May-13 14:51:37

checking in!! congrats gtbaby did he move for you to get a better look? all you could see of my baby was the spine!!
sorry you're feeling sore flyer I seem to have ballooned the last week and am feeling achey especially when walking!!

Haylebop12 Tue 28-May-13 14:56:52

Checking in ready for scan day tomorrow.

As I've been feeling kicks for around two weeks I don't think I'm in the anterior placenta gang and therefore reckon ill miss out on the boy gang too wink

GT was it any better after drinking more?

Hooray this thread might last till my scan on monday! Going camping tomorrow (eye's up the rain hmmmm) Bath and West Show on Sat on way home, working Sun then it's scan day! One of my best friends had her 12 (turned out to be 14!) Scan today due end on Nov, very exciting! xx

And a question... Had anyone notice their appetite jangle recently... I've gone from needing to eat every two hors an constantly wanting to feel full to more of a normal appetite. I can go four hours and don't feel the need to keep snacking. I think it may be because my nausea is easing?

Haylebop12 Tue 28-May-13 15:06:21

Change obv confused

Checking in congrat gt!! another boy!!!

should be more girl now to even up surely law of averages and all that smile

Smitten1981 Tue 28-May-13 15:14:39

Just got my Bababing bag through, I love it, they've thought of everything. Thanks for the recommendation Clapham

claphammama Tue 28-May-13 15:16:14

thanks for the new thread pseudo - love the title!

Congrats gtbaby! Hope it's good news? I seem to remember you really wanted a girl this time?

flyer hope you feel better soon. I also like Dinner Date - perfect easy daytime TV. And I absolutely love Come Dine with Me - the more outrageous the better. Can watch it at any time of day and night.

re: stretch marks, heard that no amount of moisturising can prevent it and it's mainly due to skin type and genetics. I still moisturise every night, religiously, just in case. I was lucky and didn't get any in my first pregnancy so, superstitiously, using the same cream now too. However, I'm bigger this time and can feel the skin on my tummy itching today, for the first time, so it must be stretching and struggling already... I welcome any tips on how to prevent them - no matter how legendary and unproven! Apparently controlled weight gain is key - so I stuffed myself with too many falafels and one kilo of different kinds of hummus at lunch today. So disciplined! :-)

Smitten1981 Tue 28-May-13 15:16:45

oh, and Hayle The only thing I have noticed is that I can eat for England. I'm constantly hungry for sugar. I feel quite bad about it as I know sugar s terrible for the baby and it's practically all I have been eating. I had three slices of fruit cake and a MacDonald's milkshake for tea on Sunday sad

claphammama Tue 28-May-13 15:18:25

glad you like the bag smitten! Did you also get the gray one?

Umlauf Tue 28-May-13 15:20:51

Hello! I completely missed the last thread somehow and so am checking into this one now!!!!

What have I missed? How would you summarise the last thread in 3 words?!!

Shirehobbit Tue 28-May-13 15:24:13

Ooh, a shiny new thread grin

Congratulations on the scan GT - hope your SPD is still getting better?

I kind of knew the moisturising thing and stretch marks was a bit of an urban myth, but I had to try. Not much I can do about my boob-growth, I don't think - there's no sign of any on my middle....yet....

Shirehobbit Tue 28-May-13 15:25:55

x-post.

Good to see you, Umlauf

Three word summary?! Erm... I might leave that to someone else, I'm not too good at being succinct blush

claphammama Tue 28-May-13 15:33:22

welcome back umlauf! What's new with you?!

I think the title of this new thread is very fitting as a summary. I would say:

1. boys boys and more boys...
2. anterior placentas and more anterior placentas...
3. naughty babies that don't cooperate and need re-scanning

We also have a spreadsheet now where we keep track of everything: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AidVHHwJSwC3dDU2VzFhWWt1ckg4dW84WkdCNzhOaFE#gid=0

Umlauf Tue 28-May-13 15:37:11

Haha well without even being here I've managed to tick off all three of those clapham lol! My boy (now definitely a boy!!!) is hiding behind his anterior placenta and has a shyness around sonographers.

Although I'm anterior I have felt flutters for a couple of weeks now, and DH can feel them too. I put his hand on my tummy yesterday and he said 'ooh' at the same time as the flutters! Ws lovely! I'm 22+4.

Ill have a go in the spreadsheet!

claphammama Tue 28-May-13 15:40:07

LOL - you definitely belong here umlauf!

Umlauf Tue 28-May-13 15:40:22

Ooh smitten just seen you're considering Sebastián! (Ignore the accent my ipad insists...) Its a beautiful name and am 80% decided on it as a middle name BUT...

We live in/baby conceived in San Sebastián....

Is that just too much like Brooklyn Beckham??????!!!!

Natalieand Tue 28-May-13 15:42:23

Haha clapham I was just going to write the exact same thing as u!

takingachance Tue 28-May-13 15:46:09

Hi, joining the new thread and I'm scan buddies with you haylebop smile
I've no inkling on pink/blue or a preference, just very excited to find out!!
Finally enjoying some sun here today, so hoping it stays a while......

Smitten1981 Tue 28-May-13 15:52:30

Clapham Yes, I got the grey one - love it!

Umlauf Nooooo that's not chavvy at all, in fact that makes it more poignant. Sebastian is a classic!

Haylebop12 Tue 28-May-13 15:58:57

smitten eating for england is my ''normal'' appetite but i found up to a few days ago i would HAVE to eat every two hours. I am refusing to weigh myself!

IRT stretch marks, i didnt moisturise at all with dd and not one on my tummy. It contracted back really well and once id lost my weight it was almost flat again! This time however, I am less active, started off 2 stone heavier, didnt lose any weight due to sickness particulary as I was admitted within days of vommiting started and I already look as big as I did 2 weeks before I gave birth to dd.

my hosp is right by our local shopping centre and as my scan isnt until 4pm i said we can all go for some tea afterwards and buy something gender specific... Im struggling to contain my excitment!

Haylebop12 Tue 28-May-13 16:00:02

taking I also have no preference as I can see either fitting our family really well I'm just 99.9% convinced its a girl!
