New thread ladies. I should really leave it to someone who can link the old one. Can someone add the edd list and whatnot? Or maybe we should start again now edds are changing after scan.

Hi all marking my place and bookmarking this page. Will try logging in at work and linking the old thread to here.

FlipFantasia Tue 25-Mar-14 12:46:10

Yay for new thread!

binkybunny Tue 25-Mar-14 12:46:50

Ok gum beat me to it:-)

pebble82 Tue 25-Mar-14 12:56:27

Checking in. Feeling very teary today for no reason. So tired too. Got a team meeting this afternoon which I hope I don't embarrass myself in. Stupid hormones!

magichandles Tue 25-Mar-14 13:01:38

Marking my place as well. Bah - despite feeling normal yesterday I'm feeling rubbish again today, but manageable rubbish at least.

Nervous about GTT tomorrow now, mainly that I'm just going to feel awful and not get to "enjoy" the couple of hours peace with a magazine!

diamondbutterfly Tue 25-Mar-14 13:35:31

Hi ladies, room for one more? Was lurking and thought I'd join after my scan but decided to take the plunge! dc2 due 18th, will see what the scan says. Scan is 7th Apr which can't come quick enough. No early scans but have got one of those fetal heart monitors and have heatd the hb from 8 wks.

Can someone add me to the list?

Ta

Loulou888 Tue 25-Mar-14 13:41:06

Checking in. Again feel like rubbish today, bickering with DH too sad so insensitive! Raaa. Booking in appointment tomorrow.....finally

mum2kiss Tue 25-Mar-14 13:54:06

Just marking my place ;)

Me23 Tue 25-Mar-14 13:56:58

Just marking my place and adding diamond to the list welcome diamond butterfly, also putting my new edd in
Just noticed how many people are on the list that don't post I wonder if they are lurking.

We could start a fresh list with adjusted EDDs from scans once all the regular posters have had their scans - mid April? And anyone who wants to continue to lurk can add theirs on too? That way we'd have more of a working list.
12 weeks today, scan at 12+3!

mum2kiss Tue 25-Mar-14 14:20:20

Ive just realised its exactly a week until my first scan!!! Almost made it to the first hurdle!

I agree it makes sense to start a new due date list so that active posters and lurkers are on there. The list is huge and it doesnt make sense to keep reposting it if half of the people on it wont ever look at the thread again

puppythedog Tue 25-Mar-14 14:41:15

I'm not on the list,

Just kidding :-) marking the thread to make it easy to find. For those of you experienced at pregnancy does the tiredness (for those pregnant not DHs/DPs) tend to become less pronounced at the end of the first Trimester? Mrsthedog is knackered we both slept from stupidly early in the evening until this morning. I know what's causing my over tiredness and can do something about it but we are not in charge of mrsthedog's tiredness.

Any advice would be gratefully received?

I had quite a bad start to the day today.

Was on the train to Waterloo, got a stomach cramp of the “oh crap” variety. Hobbled to Carluccios and destroyed their toilet. Had to use the loo brush after, started retching and dropped the loo brush onto my nice leather handbag.

Do I win a prize for worst start to the day???

puppythedog Tue 25-Mar-14 14:54:02

thanks

you prize m'lady.

gunwalloe Tue 25-Mar-14 15:00:38

puppy im 13 weeks and feel quite normal today but given the chance I would take a nap lol

taking you had me and hubby lol poor you what a nightmare!

ohthegoats Tue 25-Mar-14 15:13:16

I'm knackered all the time still - it's not as debilitating as it was a month ago, but it's still quite bad - in bed by 9 every night. I'm already looking back on things thinking 'god that was awful' though, so it must have improved a bit. To be honest, I don't mind the sleeping early at night, I quite like it.

I'm exhausted by the end of the school day though, which is difficult. I need to go home for a few hours and relax. Tonight however, parents evening.. so none of that relaxing until gone 7. Boo.

porcito Tue 25-Mar-14 15:32:09

Also still tired all the time, am so in awe of those of you doing this with other children! Thought the sickness had let up too, but nooo, back with a vengeance. Almost 13 weeks, grr! I'm doing a skype interview in 30 minutes, am sure I'm going to have to leave halfway through to hug a toilet.

taking, poor you! Definitely win the prize this morning!

akachan Tue 25-Mar-14 15:52:04

Checking in!

Also still knackered here. Generally I leave for work about 8 and get back about 7.30 and it's beginning to feel like a bloody long day. I'm wondering whether I could start earlier and leave earlier.

hefner Tue 25-Mar-14 15:59:31

I remember feeling much less tired in the second and third trimester last time, but can't remember exactly when it started to improve. I think I'm just over 12 weeks now and still feeling rubbish, in fact I feel worse this week. I think it might be a delayed response to moving house a couple of weeks ago, maybe it took a while for the exhaustion to hit!

sazzlehopes Tue 25-Mar-14 16:01:56

Hello all, just checking in as I've been away the weekend. Congrats to all the recent scanners - so nice we are now reaching the 12 week stage for most people. I agree about a new list...think it makes sense!

hefner Tue 25-Mar-14 16:02:56

Oh and tak1ngchances poor you! I haven't been feeling too sick but I'm retching at bad smells and anything a bit disgusting, so wouldn't have coped well with that!

I felt much less tired in the second trimester then tired again in the third puppy. Still more tired than usual though as it takes lots of energy to grow a baby and carry around extra weight! I've found it so much easier this time around as I'm a SAHM, don't have to get up for work and can have a nap every day. My son is a wonderful sleeper these days though - 12 hours at night plus a 3 hour afternoon nap. I think the trick is probably to embrace/go with it. Sleep won't ever be 'how it used to be' again (you'll probably wake at the slightest noise, night time feeds, early mornings or at least never any late ones) it's good to get in to sleeping when you're tired (and can) rather than by the clock.

ohthegoats Tue 25-Mar-14 16:14:53

Haha, sorry, I laughed at the toilet brush story. Takingchances - you'll laugh at it as well.. maybe next week? That's a great story to tell child when it's older!
