Freak Out Room For Those Newly Diffed Up After MC Part IX

(1000 Posts)
LAF77 Tue 27-Sep-11 08:52:41

Just found out you are pregnant after a previous miscarriage and too nervous to move over the to pregnancy boards? Freaking out about spotting, cramping, symptoms (or lack there of) and nervously awaiting your first scan? Here is a lovely place for lot's of support, hand holding and problem sharing.

Courtesy of owlbooty here are the Ten Commandments of the Freak Out Room.

1. Thou shalt check thy knickers to the point of insanity until the baby actually arrives.
2. Thou shalt also check the loo roll post-wipeage (sorry, gross, I know)
3. Thou shalt bore thy physician and midwife to tears with the mentalling.
4. And thy husband/boyfriend/family/neighbour's cat.
5. Thou shalt obsess over the absence of symptoms.
6. And the presence of symptoms.
7. And the fluctuation of symptoms.
8. Thou shalt pee on a vast number of sticks and keep ClearBlue and First Response in business.
9. The day before any scan extreme mentalling is permitted without recourse to the Haddock.
10. Self-diagnosis with Dr Google is Forbidden.

The Haddock will be applied liberally to all transgressors.

placemarking, am just in the waiting room for another scan...

LimeFlower Tue 27-Sep-11 10:12:10

Morning everybody

I'm freaking out-no symptoms at all,not even peeing more often.Just sore boobs and that's it.

pointy fx
LAF had a look at old thread and saw "the deed is done".I still must have just 1 thing in my mind as "the deed" is associated with something else blush

StickThemWithThePointyEnd Tue 27-Sep-11 10:23:01

all good, both twins measuring 6+5 now and with heartbeats on the dildo-cam smile

stitchinline Tue 27-Sep-11 10:40:41

Marking my place and yay for pointy - excellent scan news grin

LimeFlower Tue 27-Sep-11 10:42:38

That's good news pointysmile

kat2504 Tue 27-Sep-11 11:04:03

Fantastic pointy smile

I am only 2 days off the magic 12 weeks! Still hardly any symptoms, my boobs seem pretty much the same as they always were.

digitalgirl Tue 27-Sep-11 12:32:04

LAF well done for starting the new thread

pointy excellent news! So pleased they're both doing well! When's your next scan?

lime must admit I thought the same thing blush. Sore boobs is a very good symptom. I didn't even have sore boobs till about a week ago. They felt a little heavier, but now they're quite sore in the morning and then again when I take my bra off at night.

kat how exciting for you! I'm a week away from the magic 12 weeks. But because my dating scan isn't for two weeks I don't feel like I can officially celebrate that milestone till I'm 13 weeks. When's your dating scan?

Should I go fetch the list? I think I messed it up last time...

kat2504 Tue 27-Sep-11 12:35:14

My scan is on Monday morning and then if it is a good one, I see the consultant again in the afternoon. 6 days to go.... I am getting v v scared about it now.

digitalgirl Tue 27-Sep-11 12:41:56

Ok - hope I haven't messed it up. I've taken a MamaPower and Coconuts off as I know they've had their babies. And I took the liberty of adding Pointy - but not your due date. I can take you off if you're not ready.

kat daisy had her baby smile

<delurking> Lovely to see a new thread started up and brilliant news on all the scans! Hopefully we'll see you all in the grads thread soon!

Nothing much to report here, am still having some days where I mental about not feeling anything, and some days mental about feeling too much movement! Can never be happy! This morning I forgot I was pregnant, until he started kicking, and I was like "Oh yeah! I'm having a baby!"

Was just looking at the list, and I've seemed to have put on an extra week somewhere! Not that I mind, I really wish I was nearly 26 weeks! I'll just update it if you don't mind!

Quick update from me...I had an appt at the hospital today. I think that it was originally supposed to be to receive my karyotyping results. The consultant was puzzled as to why I was there. I explained that I was looking for the results (which were all normal, which I expected) and that I was supposed to be seen by a consultant earlier in pg as I am high risk. She said that it could be her that I see in the future, but it was a postcode lottery.

Anyway, she tried to find the heartbeat with the doppler and couldn't. Of course, The Fear starts rising in me. She took me over to the EPU, which I have been dreading visiting in this pg, as it is a bad news place. The sonographer with the bedside manner of a wolf was in, so I thought, this is it, my world is going to end now. But, there was baby with the heartbeat and kicking out. He didn't like me being in the EPU either as far as I could tell. I wish I could have spent longer looking at the screen, or had a little picture to take away, or they told me the heart rate, but I'm glad that baby is there, and OK.

I'm prepared for struggling with the angel sounds when it arrives, so I'll have to be patient and push The Fear away.

Hope your appt went well livin

kat2504 Tue 27-Sep-11 13:40:46

Glad your appointment had a happy ending and you got to hear the heartbeat and see the baby again.

Just updating the list - I'll take Daisy off if she's had her little girl, and I've been meaning to update my due day (by a huge 1 day) since my scan but never on the computer!

LAF So glad you got to see the scan and the heartbeat, and Pointy - Yay for your good scan news smile
