Congratulations amy I know it's a really scary time but the people on this thread will be here to hold your hand. I'm 31 weeks pregnant and the baby should be born just two months before my son's first anniversary. I can tell you that this pregnancy has been frightening at times but it has really helped me to cope and get stronger, as well as making me eat! I always lurk here (mainly post on the facebook group instead of here) so I'll keep you in my thoughts.xx
Just wanted to say thank you to all for the reassurances after my last post, the day has arrived and I feel ok - for now. Been holding it all together for the last 48 hours but Jacob has never been far from my thoughts...
Thanks wtw for the ideas - my mum had given me some big pebbles which the boys have now painted and ive made cupcakes with glitter to mark the day.
Fan DH did manage to get down to the cemetary to clear up a bit, he was feeling better - unfortunately has just had to go to A&E because his throat is now bleeding, im trying not to worry as its apparently quite common but needs attention.
Thanks also kleine - Understand exactly what you mean. I have a lantern which we will let go at 7.45pm this evening and I will be thinking how thankful I am to have all four of my wonderful sons.
blizy hope having this diagnosis helps you get back on track and 'happy' again.
Thinking of you and Jacob today august hope its passing gently xxx
Congratulations Amy Lovely news
I'm sat at the hospital waiting to have my first steroid injection and a ctg. It's boiling hot and they seem a bit busy so could be here some time! Still feeling v anxious and tearful - hoping it will dissipate a bit once I've had the ctg. I just don't think I could bear it if something went wrong now.
I woke up very distressed this morning and couldn't feel baby kicking, almost had a panic attack. Cuddled up with DH and then she started kicking, after I told him I was worried. Feel so so tired today, think the tiredness of doing holiday club has kicked in, have no energy at all and feel very strange... Also craving lots of sugary things and my hands feel swollen
thinking of everyone alot today. I hope your all well and the Rainbow babies are behaving in or out of your tummys. And all you ttc'ers are not too stressed out today.
Been out for lunch with my Dad today bless him, hes all alone as Mum is in Oz seeing my bro and nephew.
Just booked tckets for the chilli festival, cant wait, we went last year it was so good! We love chilli, going to get myself some chilli chocolate and other chilli products. So excited, something to look forward to.
wtw its in Chichester at west dean. Its over the bank holiday, we are going on the monday.
blizy I shall be testing this friday or saturday depending on how strong I will be.
The chilli festival has chilli food from around the world, lots of chilli sauces, chilli ice cream, chocolate, fudge, sweets. Chilli plants to buy, music from all the chilli countries, all set in a wonderful west dean grounds. We didnt take alot of money last time and regretted it, as we wanted to buy lots of stuff to cook with, but we are going to take a bit this time. Might even buy a chilli plant this year.
That sounds fab fan we normally go to the kite festival in southsea over august bank holiday, Erin's birthday is the Saturday of bh weekend but might try and get over on the Sunday depending on how I've recovered.
Waves Blizy thank you my lovely. Hope 2ww passes quickly!
Been to see bil and sil's new baby this evening. He's very sweet and sil looks well. Bil was quite furtive we hardly saw him!
Hello to everyone and thanks for your words of support. I'm wavering between refusing to believe this will be a successful pregnancy (I had a mmc and erpc at 13 weeks before DS1), getting excited and thinking about due dates, and ignoring the whole thing. I can't wait to see my gynaecologist hopefully in a week or so, so I can calm some of my fears.
So happy to read about your approaching due date wtw. Fingers crossed for blizy and fanjo on the tww. And I hope today was not too upsetting for you august.
X post Miasmummy - so Gary Barlow must have sung, then - I couldn't watch. I saw an online article about how 'brave Gary' was 'putting aside his grief' to take part in the closing ceremony and it made me so upset, I decided not to watch it. Sounds like they chose an appropriate song, though...
Congrats Amy it's very Garda successive pg after our losses but it can be done & it's so worth it .xxx August hope u re ok? Not to upset? Xxx Whatever shame your steriod injection hurt ... Mine were totally fine... 48 little hours ....nearly there xxx Blizy hope the 2 WW passes quickly... Hi all: love to all xxxxx Nice day off ... Just chilling ... Nice quiet weekend ... Really enjoyed the closing ceremony last night apart from the Spice girls they were a big disappointment... Sounded crap. Really felt for Gary Barlow ... Words were very poignant ... Poor man xxxx
Thanks ladies. Back in today for 2nd injection, ctg and other pre op stuff today. Had a panic at 3am - woke up to get a drink and suddenly was stood in a big puddle of liquid!! Thought my waters had gone so popped a pad in but absolutely nothing else has leaked and no contractions or show so am assuming it must have been wee Though i didn't wake up needing the toilet - had only been an hour before. Will mention it at the hospital just in case. Will be off to the cemetery later as Erin's stone is being put up today.
wtw what did it smell like? Funny question maybe but I think waters smell very sweet. But thinking about it -m sure something similar happened to me, maybe baby is laying on your bladder and your muscle has stopped working. Good luck hun.
