January 2014 (Thread 6) - The Lies and Truth of pregnancy..... Read on!!(1000 Posts)
Lie = Your glowing vs Truth = Your sweating, freezing, puking and an emotional basket!
Lie = After the first trimester your ms will disappear vs The truth = It will be there in the second trimester and the third..... and probably after you give birth! Get used to it!
Lie = You don't look even look pregnant vs The truth = whatever, you look pregnant from space!
Lets see what we learn from the second trimester!
Congrats mrsV on your scan
Good luck to everyone having a scan today, think there are lots of us
Sarahl hope u feel better soon
sarah ours was face down first so had to bump my bum on the bed to make it roll over too. So cute seeing them move isn't it!
Good luck anyone with scans today
sarahl hope you feel better today
Feel better soon Sarah, hopefully it will just be a 24 hour thing.
tooth it's me who's in Newbury. Is that three Berkshire types now?
Hope you're coping with the heat. This house is like an oven!
Extra loving the "hippo feet"! That's a pretty accurate description!
sarahj you were very energetic yesterday! Not surprised you were knackered and aching at the end! Sounds like a fab day though!
sarahL so sorry you are feeling so unwell! That's terrible luck - really hope it's short lived!
Good luck to everyone with scans today - how exciting!
Wow - last night was RIDICULOUS with the heat - both DH and I slept downstairs on sofas last night with fans on us in an attempt to cool down - we did finally fall asleep but it was hilarious because it felt like those sleepovers I had with my school friends! I would have been laughing at lot more if I hadn't been stressing that have a full on day at work today!
Am actually struggling to type with my fat fingers this morning - they went down overnight and were fine first thing, but as soon as I get a little hot they blow back up! I feel like I need one of those ice towels Murray was using yesterday - looked like bliss!!!
Hi ladies, its been about 3 weeks since I've stopped by. Been off work about 4 weeks now with HG and hopefully will make it back in before the school term finishes.
Anyway the sun is shining I don't think I want to puke and I have my SCAN today at the BRI. Will keep you posted. Hope everyone else is doing well too. xxx
Good luck everyone with scans today.
Howdy! I have my scan today!
But, have a confession...saw the little monkey on Friday as was back in hospital again. Think they were just being safe as I had some more pain where the appendix was (still there in fact) and my gp told me to go back immediately.
Anyway, despite telling me before it was a 'nasty' appendix, another doctor let slip it was perforated, which surely means the same as burst? I asked if that's what I had before and they said no. So the concern was that I might have an abscess where it was, but because I'm not 'ill' they thankfully don't think it is.
Some of my worries were alleviated when I saw the baby waving at me and she said it was measuring ok for dates.
Rest of the tests today but feeling more positive.
Just hope DS behaves!! He's coming with us.
Good luck to everyone else having scans today!
toothfairy yes, I am v close to Egham. Seems there's a few of us!
Has anyone signed up for Nct classes? Because its my 2nd I looked into a refresher course- basically to meet local people with a new baby. I did Nct where we lived before and still in touch with many, but the distance makes it harder. No one else had signed up locally tho, so I'm loathed to at the moment.
I'd be up for meeting mummy's on here. Probably too soon to organise but keep it in mind if anyone local would too!
Good luck to all having scans today
The heat is absolutely vile, I'm not a summer person as it is, much prefer cold weather, so the heat is driving me mad! So glad I'm not massive in this heat though.
Pidgy I've not signed up or looked into any classes, midwife hasn't mentioned either, maybe she will at my 16w appointment?
Zara Philips is due in Jan too?
Zara are you on here???
How lovely for her! I like Zara Philips :-)
Ha ha farmers
pidgy I'm not going to do nct. £250 seems rather expensive way to make friends, I'm going to try and make friends through mother and baby groups instead. I'm not that sociable and I'm sure when I'm heavily pregnant ill be even less so ha ha
3 hours until my scan. Eek. More excited than nervous at the moment. I'm taking comfort from the fact my bump has grown which it surely only would have done if bean had grown. So glad the morning has gone so quickly, really thought it was going to drag.
I'm with you SarahJayne. Not a heat fan. But even in my favourite place in the world it's over 20 degrees at the moment. Hoping it's going to be cooler on Wednesday, or the doctor will have something else to blame my raised bmi for!
I've only seen my midwife once, she wants to see me at 16 weeks, but I guess with the regular trips to the hospital I don't need to see her very often.
Hope everyones scans go well today. It's reasurring to see the little thing wiggling around. Bob was waving his arms around then turned over and mooned! Thanks for the well wishes. Hopfully the CVS will be done this week and i should find out what is going on by Friday. I'm a natural pessimist, so I guess I can only get a pleasant suprise!
Good luck for those with scans. I'm quite jealous.
I haven't been offered nct or antenatal classes as yet. But have been offered parent craft. To remind me of parenting skills according to my midwife. Felt a bit about this as DS is only 21mo and I haven't forgotten how to look after him yet. Does anyone have any idea what parent craft is? Personally I'd prefer antenatal classes as last year the only thing I was given was a dvd about Antrim hospital.
Oh and blue thanks so much. He doesn't cover larne but he said he'd help me find someone local. if that doesn't work out I think I'm going to go back to using the bigger driving schools, at least that way I know I can make a complaint if I need to.
This will be long, as I haven't been on here since Friday as DH has been home for the weekend, so we've been enjoying the sun by taking his niece and nephew rock pooling Yesterday I did the race for life in memory of my mum, which was actually really good, walked with a load of my family and gossiped the whole way! 12 + 2 today, nausea is fading (or at least it's not constant anymore!) but still exhausted and there is a whole new load of little niggles to worry about! I'm definitely starting to show a little
Toby I'm glad your scan went well, hope your DD is doing ok
Very impressed with everyone planning on a home birth, I am not brave enough! Maybe next time when I know what to expect.
SarahJ Sorry to hear you were so ill, I hope your feeling better now! I'm staying at my Dad's for a few weeks and he accidently bought packet mash the other day, ick.
Tarka I'm so glad your scan went well! I hope your morning sickness starts fading soon.
Bunt Zom is such a cute name! Congrats on your scan
Keski sorry your having a worrying time,
Frying, mac and MrsVDB Congrats on your scans
I accidently spent £30 on wool the other day have knitted a pair of booties and am halfway through a hooded jacket pattern
eccentrica Sorry to hear about your fall, but I'm glad everything was ok at the scan
I keep shopping for maternity clothes, and end up looking at cute baby clothes instead so I now have very little to wear.
enormouse Stupid driving instructor, he definitely should have told you before giving away your slot!
Nature sorry to hear your feeling so rough
Sultanajo my fingers were definitely swollen yesterday, I usually fiddle with my wedding ring when I'm bored but it wouldn't budge!
Sarahl hope you feel better soon!
Good luck to all those with scans today!
I'm trying to avoid doing any OU work, hence the long post!
thanks for all the get wells.
short post because I have zero energy... anyone know if we can take rennies whilst pregnant? horrendous heartburn caused by sickness and cant stand gaviscon.
Sarah I think they're fine, double check with pharmacist though Hun x
Small rant alert... Is anyone else getting sick to death or being taken for granted? Partner, yes same one who was a cuntpuffin is really starting to annoy me. Whenever we have plans something more important always seems to crop up, and when I complain I get "well all my time is spent with you anyway" and I'm "controlling" blah blah blah. Getting to the point where I'm seriously starting to not give a flying fuck anymore!
sarah I read you can but pharmacist said no. Maybe call midwife to double check, or Tommys?
It even says on the packet of Rennies that you can take them when pg
Thanks guys. And Toby I didn't have a packet of them, dh was bringing them home for me after work.
I don't know where that 'even' came from
Away back to hospital for another check and an anti-d jab Send positive vibes please!
