friend
I'm sorry about your mum, was it recent?

My mum died of cancer only a couple of months ago. It wasn't unexpected but it happened very fast, much faster than the drs predicted, and I think it's always a shock. It's very difficult sad

travis
Definitely give the EPU a ring. They'll probably tell you if you need to worry if you describe the pain to them.

Hi just wondered if I could join you ladies. I have just found out I am pregnant with baby #2 and was an active member of the ante natal group for when she was due. I am due 22/08/14. DH is still in shock I think (even though we were trying for nearly 9 months lol).

Have ended up being awake since 3:30 this morning sad woke up thinking I was going to be sick and couldn't get back to sleep so ended up watching one born every minute with my duvet on the sofa. Gonna be tired today though.

Anyway congratulations to you all. Lovely christmas present. X

My mum died in 25 September whilst on holiday with my Dad in Greece. She had a heart attack. I miss her dreadfully.

We are now trying to pick up pieces of life because mum was totally at the centre of our lives. My sister and I have to cook Christmas dinner and everything! I had planned to get pissed to manage but that plan now has to be shelved!

talulahbelle Sat 14-Dec-13 07:41:10

friend I'm so sorry for you loss, hopefully this pregnancy will go smoothly for you.

Think I'm having another chemical sad

HungryHorace Sat 14-Dec-13 07:48:21

Oh no Choccy. What's happening? Are you bleeding?

Shak, I'm sorry about your mum too. xx

Friend, you'll manage. And if it's a bit haphazard it won't matter at all. Have a 1pm dinner and get pissed afterwards.

Oh choccy are you ok?? X x

Shallol Sat 14-Dec-13 07:57:26

Oh no Choccy sad What's happening?

2beornot Sat 14-Dec-13 08:27:35

Choccy sad

FiremanSamsWife Sat 14-Dec-13 08:52:21

Hope you're ok Choccy x

QueenOfGeeks Sat 14-Dec-13 09:09:41

Oh no, hope you are ok choccy.

SliceOfLime Sat 14-Dec-13 09:15:05

Checking in on new thread, hope you are ok choccy. So sorry for the loss of your mum friendofdorothy.

CountdownBegins Sat 14-Dec-13 09:41:24

Morning all thank you for all the welcomes- just catching up on the thread as I haven't been on for a few days.choccy hope you are

CountdownBegins Sat 14-Dec-13 09:45:07

Sorry posted too early- choccy hope you are ok- How far along are you now? With my mc last month I found the NHS direct line to be a massive support when i was panicking but I guess it depends which person you get on the line. Fingers crossed its not a chemical and everything is ok choccy

My thoughts go to everyone who has lost their Mums this year- must be so difficult xx

Ruggle Sat 14-Dec-13 09:56:11

Oh no Choccy ! Hope it isn't! :-(

I think I overdid things yesterday. Had my staff review meeting with my horrible boss which I found very stressful ( he's the departmental game player!), and then sang in my choir's Christmas concert....which had a Christmas jumper theme for Save the Children.....so we were all boiling. I got a sore back from holding my music folder, and I had to stand for two hours solid (rehearsal followed by concert).....and then my step daughter (who was hyperactive thanks to her Grandad feeding her sweets all night) was climbing up my, swinging off me, and bouncing all over me.....and by the time I got homebI just burst into tears. Tummy was a bit sore and my hips are aching......so hoping to take things easy today. I just worry about the efects of it all on the bean.
