New thread!!!

Owlysims Mon 03-Mar-14 15:56:12

Sorry it's not a particularly catchy thread!!! Was trying to think if something clever but I couldn't...I blame pregnancy brain!! blush

HungryHorace Mon 03-Mar-14 15:58:57

Marking spot...couldn't believe it when I saw we'd reached 1000 on the other!

Owlysims Mon 03-Mar-14 15:59:57

First time I ended a thread as well!! Hopefully this thread will be a bit more fast paced the last one was dwindling!! Too many of us on Facebook!!

PinaColadas Mon 03-Mar-14 16:01:59

Ooh nice new thread. I think if we carry on as we are this one will go into July :D

Owlysims Mon 03-Mar-14 16:04:20

I did think that when naming it piña!! I wondered whether to even mention then scans as we will probably be using it for ages....never mind and also I think it will be faster paced with everyone posting their scan news!!

flymo79 Mon 03-Mar-14 16:16:05

yeah! everyone come back! i'm not on Facebook so feel a bit lonesome....

jessplussomeonenew Mon 03-Mar-14 16:17:57

Hear, hear, Flymo!

HungryHorace Mon 03-Mar-14 16:35:15

Scans are starting this week...it'll pick up again then :-)

We are in a bit of a limbo period now. We are still doing well considering we are only just getting to halfway!

flymo79 Mon 03-Mar-14 16:39:26

I am having vicarious celebrations today from my friend who had her 20w scan and found out she is having a girl! so happy for her. Feels like the scans are starting all over again! Mine is in ten days, feels like a lifetime!!
I have heartburn already Pina, not nice

jessplussomeonenew Mon 03-Mar-14 16:46:33

Guess I'll be bringing up the tail end of the scan queue again - mine's not until 10 April which feels like an eternity! Still hard to think beyond Harmony test results a week today...

flymo79 Mon 03-Mar-14 16:56:08

oooh, good luck for them Jess, I'm sure will be fine xxxx

weeza13 Mon 03-Mar-14 17:30:56

Thanks for new thread. I have also been suffering from heartburn. I suffer badly from indegestion anyway and have to avoid loads of foods but did get cross with DH when he questioned me taking the 1st two tablets in 3 weeks, I normaly drink milk or just get on with it because otherwise I would be on gaviscon every day but I was on a night out and fed up of feeling sicky. Did not know I could get it on prescription though (cheers to my. Doc for informing me!)Seems so fast that the scans are back around,look forward to hearing everyones news

Hey couldnt find last thread for some reason smile

not on the Facebook group.

Bought some new maternity clothes on Asos and from Primark the other day, feel much better now.

20 week scan on 19th March so couple of weeks to wait.

touch wood not had heartburn this time so far remember it well ouch!

Pinkandwhite Mon 03-Mar-14 17:40:16

Hi, can I join please? I've been a bit nervous about joining but I'm now 15+2 and would love to join.

Plentyoffish Mon 03-Mar-14 17:47:11

hi Pink&white welcome

I was the same way as you!

How are you doing? grin

Pinkandwhite Mon 03-Mar-14 17:55:24

Thanks plentyoffish :-). I've been nervous following a mc last year but I'm starting to feel pretty excited now. I did a prenatal test called the panarama test (just like the harmony test) and I got the results back on Friday showing all looks well.

How are you?

I think I can feel my baby moving. Do you think I could be right or am I imagining things?!

Plentyoffish Mon 03-Mar-14 18:07:42

aw bless pink&white ive had a few scares this time around with bleeds etc my nerves are shattered!

I have been feeling movement for a couple of weeks now so I'm sure its that great feeling eh?

Pinkandwhite Mon 03-Mar-14 18:13:41

I also had two early bleeds in this pregnancy, the worrying is pretty exhausting isn't it?!

I'm glad you say that about movement because I've been convinced that's what I'm feeling but when I went to collect my panorama test results I mentioned it to the midwife who told me it'll just be wind! Its a fluttering feeling - nothing like any wind I've ever experienced!

If your 20 week scan is on the 19th, I'm guessing you're a bit ahead of me?

HungryHorace Mon 03-Mar-14 18:21:22

Hi Pink!

You're right about the worrying being exhausting. I try not to think about the negatives too much, but it's hard, isn't it?

And what you're feeling does sound like baby. Ignore your miserable midwife!

Not much heartburn here yet, thankfully. Not much last time either, just sicky burps towards the end. Nice!

Plentyoffish Mon 03-Mar-14 18:24:36

exactly don't listen to the midwife, thats exactly what the movement feels like.

Im 17 weeks with baby 2 so due on 06th Aug when are you due?

Pinkandwhite Mon 03-Mar-14 18:36:32

:-) HungryHorace. It has been hard not to think of the negatives. It's getting quite a bit easier now. I've been so irrational though. It's like I've been worried that if I relax something will go wrong which makes no sense at all! Getting the results back on Friday was a big deal and we had a good scan too. I'd always thought of myself as quite a calm optimistic person before this. I definitely haven't been calm and optimistic for the past 12 weeks!

Plentyoffish - I'm due on the 22nd Aug. This will be my first baby. Our test results showed I'm expecting a girl. I didn't mind at all about the baby's gender but it's actually lovely to know now.

I think I'll just ignore the midwife now!

Plentyoffish Mon 03-Mar-14 19:01:28

pinkandwhite- thats lovely news a little girl will be amazing. we have a little boy he is 15 months.

Couldnt believe how quickly it all happened this time blush

HungryHorace Mon 03-Mar-14 19:04:22

Girls are awesome, Pink. I've got an 8 month old girl and she's just brilliant :-)

mssleepyhead Mon 03-Mar-14 19:35:12

Pink - I'm due the day after you and I think I'm feeling very light movements this week too. I actually just used my Doppler (slaps wrists) and noticed baby was very active, so concentrated hard and prodded a bit and I'm sure I felt very light wriggles in response. First ones, really, so very exciting. I can't wait for them to feel more real!

Congratulations, by the way : )
