9 weeks and tingling in abdomen

(144 Posts)
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

Hey frankly had my scan all fine dates went back 2 days tho so 10 weeks 6 days today have to back on 16th nov for measurements but I'm praying alls looking good baby moving about and waving hands at us. Heartbeat all ok so fingers crossed feel angry with myself tho as still scared but I've read the chances go down of mc after 10 weeks hope ur ok xxx

MrFranklyShankly Tue 06-Nov-12 13:56:19

Oh Kate thats just fantastic news, so delighted to hear little baba was moving and waving at yas! I'm sure going back two days is quite normal, its hard to give an exact date from scans...I know that with the scans from my two DD, one minute I would be ahead of my dates (which I knew would be impossilbe as I was so sure of my exact dates with DD2) and then it would go back....so I'm sure that is completely normal...and yes the risk of mc is going down all the time, especially when you've seen a heartbeat and baby is growing....thats just the best news...although I totally agree I would still be scared, you could have a scan everyday and you'd still go home and worry....its impossible not to... well my sickness has really cranked up a notch.....wakened this morn at 4, and didnt know if I was going to be sick or was starving hungary! Still spotting and cramping....so of course now Im putting the sickness down to the fact that I'm going to end up mc at any minute (always the worst case wtih me!)......at work today and finding it very hard not to look green in front of people.....so glad to hear your good news Kate....fingers crossed now for Friday that all will be well...xx F

katesav87 Tue 06-Nov-12 16:31:18

Hey thank u u r so right we could a scan everyday and I'd still be scared. I just think I've had so much bad luck this year this can't be so easy and good luck to fall straight away. That just dosent happen to me. Everything goes wrong for me lol. I'm driving myself insane and I have no reason to. Bless u it's hard to be at work wen ur scared. I hope ur sitting down at work. Great news about the sickness. I really think its gonna be ok. Hope Friday comes quick for u. Xxxx

katesav87 Wed 07-Nov-12 20:05:49

Hey frankly how u doing? Xxx

katesav87 Thu 08-Nov-12 19:40:38

Good luck tomorrow frankly x

MrFranklyShankly Thu 08-Nov-12 20:08:47

Hi kate thank you am so nervous about tomorrow....feeling so sick the last few days really tired as well, not sleeping great with trips to the loo and then the worry always seems to be worse at nite esp when ur the only one awake!! How are you?? Have u relaxed anymore since ur scan?? I know exactly wat u mean wen u say that luck is never on ur side im one of those people too, if its goin to go wrong then itll happen to me!! But really hope we've hd our quota of bad things for one yr kate hopefully its time for the nice stuff to happen...hope ur feeling better....will prob nt sleep to gd 2nite im in at half 9 so at least i dont hve to wait all day....fingers crossed fx....will let u know how it goes...F xx

katesav87 Thu 08-Nov-12 20:46:14

Aww u sound like me u are now at the stage were I got all my symptons! I really think all is going to be ok for u u have such great symptons even tho they make u feel horrible but like u I don't read these signs as good I just expect a miscarriage n e day. Had a bad couple of days worrying thought my scan would re assure me but still got another week tomorrow to wait to wait to see baby again. I just keep thinking it can't be this simple to fall the first month and things be ok but hey maybe it's our time frankly!!!i really do hope so. I'm so moody at the mo being a terrible mother and wife. Tiredness is a killer and boobs r so sore. But sickness is only nausea thanks to the lovely tablets. I am really praying for u tomorrow and hope u see ur bouncing baby in there I'm sure u will. Let me know how it goes. Hope u get some sleep ill be looking forward to the trips to the loo to tonight! NOT haha. Xxxxxx

katesav87 Fri 09-Nov-12 13:59:37

Hi frankly hope ur scan went well thinking off u xxx

MrFranklyShankly Fri 09-Nov-12 16:54:21

Hi kate, well the scan went great....got to see a little heartbeat!!!!:-) the midwife was very happy with the scan....only hitch is they found traces of blood in my urine...so dont know where its coming from they think its a uti and maybe thats where all the cramping is coming from??? Got antibiotic for it but really hate hving to take them in case they do something...so something else to worry about! Not back for another scan now till december near 12 weeks so my head will be wrecked waiting! But at least for today little baba is fine & happy. How are u?? X

katesav87 Fri 09-Nov-12 17:57:29

Aww I'm so so pleased for u!!! See I think this one is a keeper!! Was thinking of u all day. Hope the uti clears up my friend had them the whole way through her pregnancy and took the medicine and her bubs is all fine. Know wat u mean tho I take my anti sickness and get worried but I took them with DD and she came out fine. So how far gone are you now? Hope ur 12 weeks come round quick xxxx

MrFranklyShankly Sun 11-Nov-12 15:49:53

Well since the gd news on my scan on fri ive been in such a heap...hving horrorendous cramping and relly heavey bleeding....epu closed for w/end so am going to ring them in the morn...but i really think its gone ive been passing clots as well im just in bits...i cant believe after seeing the hb on fri that this is happening:-(

katesav87 Sun 11-Nov-12 18:10:56

Hi frankly oh no I'm so sorry to hear that but please keep postive I've been having lots of bleeds before and the baby was still there. I really hope it's ok for u. Not great that epu is closed can u go to a and e? I really feel for u not knowing wats going on its not fair!! Have u still got symptons still I really hope everything's ok for u. Xxxx

MrFranklyShankly Mon 12-Nov-12 18:50:16

Hi kate well hving a real up and dwn few days of it...still bleeding heavily but hd a scan again this morn at the epu they were really lovely to me i was in a rite state...scan showed a gd strong hb and they culdnt tell where the bleeding coming from so its not from around baba or anywhere in the womb so thats a relief..they did another hormone test on me so waiting for them to ring me with that....my symptoms hve really eases off so thats worrying me....just hve to wait and see....still bleeding which is v scary everytime i go to the loo...but they said some women just hve bleeds and go on to full term so im hoping thats the case fingers crossed....im emotionally wrecked...thats me on bed rest now for a while....how r you keeping? Frankly x

katesav87 Mon 12-Nov-12 19:12:34

Aww frankly I'm glad they saw a strong heartbeat. How worrying for u tho. It's just not far that some ladies get bleeding and so strange they can't see we're its coming from I have heard so many ppl say they have suffered bleeding in pregnancy. It's so common now a days!! Yes bed rest is defo needed for u!! Lots of tlc and looking after aswell. I really feel for u I would be the same a right state! I do think this one is a stinky baby tho I just think its going to keep u on ur toes!!! Am thinking of u. I'm ok my emotions r everywhere. I am seriously stressed and feel like I'm going to have a nervous breakdown I'm horrendously tired. Weeing like a racecourse which means little sleep DD is having nightmares so up constanley I'm the night! Work is stressful as well lol. Just one of those times were u feel like everything is out to get u. But to put it in to perspective I'm not going through wat u r so I should count myself lucky just can't stop being miserable. Xxx

katesav87 Tue 13-Nov-12 07:08:38

Morning F did u get ur hormone results? Xxx

MrFranklyShankly Tue 13-Nov-12 10:47:44

Hi kate no word on my hormone test yet results not in yet :-( im terrifed they will tell me its decreasing instead of going up...but had morn sickness this morn actually threw up so yeeeah !!!! I know ur emitions be all over the place and i do get the same stressed out but its hard work being pg looking after ur dd and trying to keep work happy....just be kind to yourself and everything else will sort itself out...in bed at the mo making the most of dds being at school! Thankfuly bleeding has stopped too so fingers crossed....Fx

katesav87 Tue 13-Nov-12 13:26:36

Glad ur in bed!! I'm in bed to have thrown up 7 times since 7 this morning feeling so rough anti sickness has not worked this time thrown all 3 tablets back up. Don't know wether it's a stomach bug or sickness from pregnancy. Seriously it's never ending with me. I can't move with out throwing up. Got an docs appointment tonight see wat they say. N e way enough about me. Glad u got sickness this morning. I really have a good feeling about this uve seen the heartbeat twice I think it's going to be ok. Just hope they find the cause of the bleed so u can rest ur mind a little!! Not fair on ur anxiety!! Fingers crossed ur 12 weeks comes around quickly!!! Im 12 weeks tomorrow finally got my scan Friday again. Still nervous but if something's happened then I can't do n e thing about it. I feel very attached to this bubs already tho so pray to god it hasn't. I have my doppler and I use it in morning and at bed. So scared I'm going go harm baby but just can't stop it really realeaves my anxiety. Xxxxx

MrFranklyShankly Tue 13-Nov-12 13:45:02

Aw god kate that must feel awful i hate the feeling of nausea never mind throwing up u poor pet....it culd be a bug my dd1 was sent home from school a while ago shes feeling rotten with a sore tummy feeling sick....so much for my quiet morn! The poor pet is lying up now looking as pale as me. Thats fantastic u've reached the 12 wk mark i wuld say things will be fine with baba kate and u wont do any harm with the doppler it lowers ur anxiety and thats gd for baba...my nxt scan feels like a lifetime away. Really hope u get sorted at the drs hve u tried the sickness bands??? A lot of people swear by them....

katesav87 Tue 13-Nov-12 18:54:36

Hi f on my way to hospital am severely dehydrated so ketones in my urine doctor straight on the phone to gynaecologist and now on my way for I presume is a drip shouldn't be scared but am whole body aches xxx

DaisyChain848 Tue 13-Nov-12 20:32:53

Hello,
I haven't tested to see if i am pregnant yet (did post but had no replies) I have worked out that if i am i would be around the 9 weeks mark. I have been getting the same feeling you have described...Sometimes it feels like a bubbly feeling and it is a very bizarre feeling. I hope you have found out what it it is and that your pregnancy is on track for a healthy and beautiful baby smile
All the best xxxxxxx

MrFranklyShankly Tue 13-Nov-12 22:07:50

Oh kate you poor thing...good thing they are sending u in for the drip you will feel a lot better after being on it for a while...hope all goes well for you...thinking on you...let me know how u are when ur feeling up to it...take care. F xxx

katesav87 Wed 14-Nov-12 16:12:38

Hi daisy. I would test we have no clue wat this tingling is. I've never got it before I was pregnant so maybe a sympton. Good luck!!
Frankly I didn't have to stay In thank god they put me on a drip and sent me home at about midnight! I was glad as hate staying in. I have t been sick today but feel really sick and run down my poor DD has been negated after school so I can lay down. Feel so bad for her playing by herself. Having trouble with work aswell had so much time off and now get a text from my boss saying we need to discuss ur hours and wat job u do wen ur here :-( I really don't want to be moves. So upset. Just wish one thing would go right. How r u? Xxx

MrFranklyShankly Wed 14-Nov-12 17:08:35

Hi kate glad to hear ur home and not throwing up...god ur hving a time of it u culd really do without that stress from ur work too.. Do they know ur pg?? Mite be worth just saying to ur boss...u need to just get urself well enuf again to be able to takecare of urself and ur family...ohhh ur Dd sounds far from neglected my 2 r the same at the mo im just too wrecked to do anything....well i feel awful today im feeling sooo cold and dizzy and generlly sick! Actually thinking why am i putting myself and dh thru this...maybe i shuld hve given myself longer after the mc....i just feel so down and miserable..and guilty for thinking this way....maybe its just the hormones! Wuld like it to be all ovet and just hve baba home safe & sound, if that makes any sense. F xx

katesav87 Wed 14-Nov-12 17:29:07

Yes they know I am pg. my boss is not very good at being professional. I totally understand how u feel. I feel the same tonight! I'm down and miserable and also feel like y am I doing this again which upsets me. Cos I really wanted this baby, but now I'm scared I'm not feeling the way I should do I really hope it's the hormones and although Im sorry ur feeling that way I feel some comfort u feel the same. Maybe it's normal to feel this way. I hope u feel better soon ur really having a rough time to, it's really not fair is it. Xxx

MrFranklyShankly Thu 15-Nov-12 15:51:34

Hi kate how r u feeling 2day hun??? Are you feeling any better? I was talking to dh lastnite and was explaining how i was feeling and he told me i was exactly the same when i was pg wit dd2! That i was really down for most of the pg and there was me thinking i was all glowy and happy bck then i must be thinking with my rose tinted specs on so its totally normal for us to be feeling like this...the sickness (and u've hd it really bad) doesnt help its hard to be sunny when u feel so crap! So we're totally normal and knowing that has actually cheered me up! God ive been pure green today threw up twice this morn and im due bck to work on mon dont know how ill survive it:-( cant believe ur boss is being so insenseative to u esp at the mo...if ur dr has put u off theres really nothing they can do im sure i wuld just try and put it out of ur mind for now.. Whens ur nxt scan? I watched one born lastnite i ws avoiding all those type of shows but to be honest i think the fact im trying to distance myself from this pg in case something goes wrong is making me so miserable that im just goin to embrace it now no matter what happens...seeing the little newborns just melted my heart so much i just really want this to be real now...anyway hope ur ok kate...better gi ive written a book here!!! With very bad spelling no doubt!!! F xxx
