katesav87 Tue 23-Oct-12 18:10:16

Hi everyone. Has n e one ever experienced tingling and almost fluttering in the abdomen/ tummy at 9 weeks. I'm 9 weeks and 1 day today with my second. I know it can't be the baby moving but I have no idea wat it is and I've had 3 miscarriages before. I almost want to itch it. It dosent hurt at all. N e help would be appreciated xx

Hi frankly how u feeling today? Hope uve been sick hehe that sounds horrible of me! I've had to come home from work today I feel so bad as I've had a really bad year of sickness as I had my gall bladder removed and had a lot of time of sick with that :-( feeling abit down today really thrown up this morning and feel faint and tired. But keep thinking knowing my luck all this is in my head and wen I have my scan next Tuesday it will be gone :-( feel like all my work collegues r angry at me to for going off again. Just wish my life would be simple for once xxxx

MrFranklyShankly France Tue 30-Oct-12 18:30:02

Hi kate how r u 2day?? Im fine...hd a little bit of nausea this morn when i was hvin breakfast but thats it really....altho im starting to think i made myself feel nausa as im thinking bout it so much...a bit tired this eve but then im always tired!! Wat about u?? Im so fed up feeling so negative just feel like im on alert and cant relax atall thinking the worst all the time is just getting to me...and im too scared to think happy thoughts in case it all goes wrong again:-( sorry im a rite bag of misery this eve!

katesav87 Tue 30-Oct-12 19:10:25

Aww I totally understand how u feel!! It's horrible isn't it u get urself so worked up over it. I have come to the conclusion that if it happens there's nothing u can do to stop it. Although I sometimes can't think like that cos I'm desperate for this baby to stick which Im sure is the same for u. I can't take n e more heartbreak. Nausea is good!!! Remember its still early days. Just try and relax and do everything right that's all u can do! How's ur DH is he supportive. I've ended up buying a Doppler yesterday got it today and heard the heartbeat. Although knowing me it wasn't the baby. See I can't be postive incase the worst happens!! Wat r we like hey!! Do u have any appointments coming up? Xxxx

MrFranklyShankly France Tue 30-Oct-12 21:23:39

Ohh dh is really good so supportive, think he thinks now by not talking about me being pg at the mo he's helping me not worry but kimda feel like im dealing with it all....aww that most be so reassuring to hear the heartbeat at least it will set ur mind at ease...i know i go from thinking if something is going to go wrong it and there wont be anything i can do to stop it and then i feel myself getting into a complete panic coz i know this will prob be our last try....im waiting to get my appointment letter for the epu...hopefully this week...im 5 weeks now...hoping and dreading all at the same time...wat r we like is rite:-)

katesav87 Tue 30-Oct-12 21:32:06

I'm glad he's supportive. I won't talk about it with my DH I won't let him plan n e thing past the scan!!! Just find it hard to think everything will be ok. 5 weeks yay ur still going so keeping all my fingers and toes crossed for u. I wish I could see into the future and see our baby's with us. I'm fed up of being so down about such a happy time! Xxx

MrFranklyShankly France Thu 01-Nov-12 10:44:22

Hi Kate, how are you feeling today??? Well I had a call from the EPU yesterday and they've booked me in for a scan on Tuesday (is that the same day as yourself?) I have to say I'm terrifed, and since that call, I feel like any symptoms I did have, have totally disappeared, no sickness this morn at all, not even feeling queasy...I cried for ages after the phone call, I'm just so nervous about it, that it'll be the same news as the last time I was there.....dh was great y'terday eve trying to reassure me and calm me down.....but I really think its going to be bad news.....wish we could see in the future kate and see two lovely bouncing babies, wouldnt it be sooo nice.....so scared to get my hopes up at all, cant even think in anyway ahead...its horrible being so down at whats suppose to be such a nice time....well I hope your feeling okay today, and your still going strong with your symptoms....

Frankly x

katesav87 Thu 01-Nov-12 11:16:28

Oh frankly it's horrible feeling that way, I promise u tho I had no symptons at ur stage just a tiny bit of soreness around my nipples that's it. Now I'm throwing up and am dehydrated just been to the docs and if no better tomorrow ill be admitted to hospital to be put on a drip. I asked the Docter y it was happening so late he said around 10 weeks the hcg levels peak and so causes u to feel like this. I'm sure u will get the symptons soon. But remember ppl sometimes don't have n e thing. Yes ur scan is the same day as mine :-) I'm hoping u get great news that will put ur mind at rest. I know it's a hard time wen it should be a happy time. Just keep thinking no bleeding and pain is a good sign I think there is a little fighter in there! Hurry up Tuesday xxxx

MrFranklyShankly France Thu 01-Nov-12 18:16:02

Aw god love you kate u poor thing... A friend ended up in hospital on a drip with the same thing im her last pg and it really helped her so i hope ur feeling a bit better this eve...well ive hd such bd cramping all afternoon really worried this how it started last time lots of cramping just trying to rest see if they ease up any...hope ur feeling ok. Frankly x

katesav87 Thu 01-Nov-12 18:24:31

Oh no I really hope it isn't starting maybe its just stretching pain I got really bad pains down there at 5 weeks I ended up going to a and e cos it hurt so much. Fingers crossed rest up and I hope it passes xxx

katesav87 Sat 03-Nov-12 08:59:10

Hey frankly how r u doing? X

MrFranklyShankly France Sat 03-Nov-12 15:40:51

Hi kate well hd a dramatic day of it yterday...ended up goin to the epu for a scan hd really bad cramping all nite thurs...fri morn hd some bleeding...really freked out so got in for a scan which showed a gest sac and yolk sac...said e'thing looked as it shuld be but they took bloods to check hcg levels and i went home still hving lots of cramping...then hospital called me lastnite asking me to come in as hcg levels were extemely high and they thought i mite be hving an ectopic...so off we went for more scans and poking around...and they finally let me home lastnite saying e'thing seems fine??? So im a real bag of nerves now, relieved a bit by the scan but still hving lots of cramping, its quiet sore...no more bleeding and still no symptoms or sickness...feeling like its just goin to go the same way as last time....hve another scan on friday nxt....so fingers crossed.. So how r u kate?? Hows the sickness???

katesav87 Sat 03-Nov-12 17:02:19

Oh I'm so sorry to hear uve had a bad time of it :-( but then again I'm happy all is ok!! If ur hcg levels r really high that is such a great sign!!! And everything is in right place. I think it is looking good so far :-) did they say how far gone u are? U rest up and make sure ur not doing alot. Hope the bleeding has stopped and ur not in to much pain. Must of been really scary for u, my hcg levels were really high at 6 weeks!!! I'm ok on 2 types of anti sickness now. Nearly got admitted yesterday to hospital was so dehydrated but now tablets seem to have kicked in so nausea still there ur sickness has gone. I thought I would be scared cos sickness kind of reminds me everything's ok still but boobs still sore so fingers crossed. I really have everything crossed for u. But I think things r looking good. We're they happy with everything in the end? Xxx

MrFranklyShankly France Sat 03-Nov-12 19:53:12

Yeah they said they were very happy with it all, looked healthy....the dr lastnite thought i was around 5+6 but im hving a lot more cramping all eve with more bleeding :-( really feels like my period....thats gd u got the tablets...altho i know wat u mean id be the same the sickness wuld nearly be reassurance...even tho its horrible...but it sounds like e'thing is goin good fingers crossed...id say ull be happier after ur scan on tues ..i really am not hopefull atall:-(

katesav87 Sat 03-Nov-12 21:32:32

Oh no not more bleeding maybe u have an erosion or something usually wen u miscarry ur hcg r really low wen I had my mc back in may my hormone level were like 300 then went down again now wen they tested this time they were like 32000 at the same stage. My friend has abit of bleeding at the same time as u she's now 6 months. I am really hoping for u!!! It must be so horrid for u. The not knowing. Is it heavy bleeding or spotting if u don't mind me asking. Go to hospital again if it gets worse. Xxxx

MrFranklyShankly France Sat 03-Nov-12 21:43:43

Its like brown/dark red blood...the cramping is really bad tho...theres no flow its just there everytime i wipe(sorry for the graphics)! Its a bit like wen i mc the last time it started with cramping and brown spotting....its just really scary...altho hearing about ur friend has given me some hope....dont know if theres much the hosp can do for me to be honest....thanks for the advice tho kate its gd to hve someone to tell xx frankly

katesav87 Sat 03-Nov-12 21:48:38

I know wat u mean wen I had my mc that's all u associate the bleeding with but yes she had this. Only wen she wiped. And I think old blood is better than fresh blood. I really am hoping for u. Understand the hospital can't do much. It's a very horrible time for u and the constant stress and worrying really dosent make it better does it. Hope u get lots of rest tonight and tomorrow. Let me know how u r tomorrow. Always here to chat it's nice to have someone to speak to that knows how I/u r feeling. Kate x

MrFranklyShankly France Sat 03-Nov-12 21:55:16

Thanks kate...i havent left the sofa all day! Poor dh &dd's hvent seen me all day im scared to move...xx

BrigitBigKnickers Sat 03-Nov-12 22:03:33
