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

katesav87 Wed 05-Dec-12 21:17:50

Hey frankly so good to hear from u I was worried lol. Aw bless u those were my worst weeks I hope u r starting to feel a little better? Yay 10 weeks all sounds great to me :-) looks like u defo have a sticky baby in there. I'm ok thank u sickness has eased up still so tired but I'm feeling ok. Belly is expanding! I'm 15 weeks now. Will be 16 on Monday feels like its going slow but I suppose it's not :-) started feeling the little flutters most days now. Anxiety is thru the roof tho still convinced something is going to go wrong being naughty and using my doppler everyday but always find wat I hope is the heartbeat lol. Wat am I like hey! Glad u have ur scan next week so excited for u xxx

MrFranklyShankly Wed 05-Dec-12 21:38:29

I know its so hard not to worry theres not a day goes by that something doesnt make me think somethings wrong...the anxiety was stopping me from being happy nearly but im just trying to njoy wat i hve now hopefully all will be fine...wow ur 16 weeks thats fantastic! Yeah the sickness is a real downer was feeling so dwn there for a few weeks thought id only be a rite moaning mertal if i was on here lol! But it is easing up a bit which also makes me hve daily panic attacks if im not as sick as the day before! Oh id be the same kate if i hd the doppler my friend has one she said i culd hve it but think ill wait till after me scan... Oh god kate im showing already im sure a few at work are suspecting im pregnant theres a definite 5 month bump there!!

katesav87 Thu 06-Dec-12 18:51:14

We sound the same :-) glad ur sickness is easing up abit it usually does around 10 weeks I think. I've got horrendous stabbing pains down below tonight. :-( just hope nothing's wrong. Think it might be ligament pain but its so strong xxx

katesav87 Fri 14-Dec-12 10:25:14

Hey f how r u? Wen is ur 12 week scan? Can't be long away now? Xxx

MrFranklyShankly Fri 14-Dec-12 22:12:51

Hi kate sorry been up to the eyes with work and getting girls organised for school plays im exhausted! How r you? Hope the pains u were hvin turned out to be the normal pg growing pains? Well we hd r scan y'terday and e'thing went great :-) baba was jumping around and even sucking its thumb!!! Was so amazing to see it all...and such a relief i didnt sleep a wink the nite b4...and the nausea has really eased off which is gd coz im feeling much better but scares me a bit too coz my reasurrance is gone but fingers crossed all will continue to grow hve another scan in 2/3 weeks time...im nearly the 12 weeks now but midwife said baba measuring more like 13 to 14 weeks in size so i hope thats a good thing...its all just such a worry....so how r u kate?? Hows ur sickness has it eased off a lot more now? Whens ur nxt scan? Jeez id just love my own private scanning machine lol. F xx

katesav87 Sat 15-Dec-12 10:00:00

Hi f so glad to hear everything went well. I knew it would be. Very exciting. I'm at that stage were I don't feel pregnant and some days I don't think I have any bump n e more its just fat! It scares me. I'm so bad I listen to the heartbeat everyday but I still don't quite believe everything is ok. I wish I could stop worrying I'm not enjoying being pregnant one bit actually it really dosent feel real still I defo think I've felt the flutters but they come and go and wen I want to feel them I can't. So fed up really at the moment of the constant worry. I've started having nightmares that I've lost it and have to give birth to it. Got my 20 week scan on the 11th January. It's not that long but I still am so scared its going to show the baby's gone! Glad to hear ur sickness has died down. Mine has to but been ill with a horrendous cold for over a week now so been in bed alot. So glad to hear ur ok xxxx

MrFranklyShankly Thu 20-Dec-12 23:00:36

Hi kate how r u? Well im still hvin a bit of ms but it has settled dwn a gd bit just wish i culd sleep dont know if its anixety and worry even tho i hd my scan last thurs cant help thinking somethings gone wrong...still hvin crampin now & again just wish i culd njoy it more....Fxx

katesav87 Fri 21-Dec-12 17:29:54

Hey good to hear from u. Glad it's settling a little I'm feeling the same still so anxious and so uncomfortable my back is killing and I have aches down there to. Really bad at the mo wen I'm sitting for long periods at my desk! I'm hoping it is just growing pains as bumps getting bigger now. I wish to we could just enjoy it! It certainly is going to be a long 9 months! Xxx

MrFranklyShankly Wed 26-Dec-12 11:23:59

Happy xmas kate hope santa was good!! How are you and bump doing? Well my morn sickness has all but gone and I'm panicking my boots of feeling totally normal now don't feel one bit pregnant at all....and my nxt scan isn't till february!!! I'll have a nervous breakdown if I hve to wait till then, think I'll hve to get a doppler of my own. Anyway hope your feeling good and ur dd is enjoying xmas. F xxx

katesav87 Wed 26-Dec-12 12:10:10

Hey f don't worry it's totally normal to feel like that! I'm the same. Use my doppler because I get worried and asked the midwife as didn't want to use it to much and she said it won't harm the baby at all. Infact she laughed at me haha. Happy Xmas to u to hope u had a wonderful day! I bet it'll come round so quick I have my 20 week on 11th jan so 2 weeks Friday can't believe it's nearly here although dreading that something will be wrong!!! I think we r going to be worrying the whole way through lol. Stupid anxiety xxxx

MrFranklyShankly Fri 11-Jan-13 23:25:56

Hi kate took a while to find the thread! How are u keeping?? Have you hd ur scan yet??? How many weeks r u now???hope everything is goin well and your njoying it now? Im nearly 16 weeks now and wish i culd just get to the stage where i can actually feel baby move...mite save my energy from worrying every day that things arent going rite...hve hd one scan a week ago (just a little one at the gps at my check up, luckly he knows im a worrier and did it to reassure me!) and got my flu jab this week so got the nurse to do the doppler! And im still sitting this eve wondering if all is well! And shuld i not be starting to feel movement around now?? Its just never ending...but on the plus side ive no more sickness just chronic tirdness esp when i come home from work poor dds dont get much out of me! Well hope ur well and ur scan goes well/ went well if youve already hd it . Frankly xxx

katesav87 Sat 12-Jan-13 07:18:05

Hey frankly
I'm well thank u just the same as u very tired from work usually in bed at 9 each night asleep :-) we r definately the same in our worrying! Ill be 21 weeks on Monday. I could of written ur post lol I felt the same about feeling movements. Kept feeling little flutters but never got stronger even went to the midwife at 19 weeks and said was worried they just said It was to early still. N e way I've finally just felt movement. Not all the time but he's there! Had my 20 week scan and he's a boy :-) we were so shocked asked the sonographer to check twice!! But he was pretty sure. He's all healthy so we r so happy. Well that was untill my stupid anxiety kicked in again and it really is stupid this time. If think if be so happy he's healthy cos I certainly am but now I'm worried he's got it wrong and it's not a boy. I really want a boy and I'm so worried if it came our a girl my depression would kick in cos if be a little upset after getting used to a boy all this time. I know that sound stupid and selfish and of course I live my baby already no matter wat but I work were I get used to an idea and n e thing else I get abit down and I don't want my anxiety and depression affect the bonding with the baby. N e way sorry to go on but booked a private gender scan today just to get then to show me excately wat I want to see a little boys bits. I'm also taking DD so she can meet her brother as she was abit sad wen we told her as she wanted a sister. God I sound so ungrateful that my baby's healthy!! I am so so grateful I really am. It's just the way I am and I just have to have that double check. It was a big shock wen he said a boy after all my miscarriages I thought I couldn't carry boys, sorry for the long comment. I'm so glad ur doing well and not long until ur 20 week :-) xxxx

MrFranklyShankly Sat 12-Jan-13 09:46:54

Oh wow kate congratulations....that is just fantastic news;-) im over the moon for you...a little boy will be just fab...id say to be fair they've got it rite...id say them getting it wrong is very rare...hope ur private scan goes well today :-) yeah i know exactly wat u mean tho about once theyve told ya and getting used to that idea in ur head id be the same ur not being onr bit selfish or ungrateful...its totally natural...i cant wait to get further on now and start feeling some movement...i keep reading bout other mums feeling movement at this stage and earlier wit their 3rd & 4th and its freaking me out! So trying not to get too worked up by it all...easier said than done....your dd must be so excited...our 2 really want a sister too and ive a funny feeling they mite be rite! roll on 20 weeks :-) xx

katesav87 Sat 12-Jan-13 10:50:16

Thanks f for not judging me. I've told no one except my husband about today. Just hoping they say a boy lol otherwise ill be even worse not knowing who to believe at least they can spend longer showing me wat they can see. I was the same read so many threads saying with my second I could feel movements at 12 weeks etc I was like ok something's wrong but the midwifed just laughed at me at 19 weeks and told me not to worry. I can feel him now but it's not in a pattern and its not strong I have to really sit there and concentrate sometimes so please don't be worried. Our pregnancy sound alot the same so just wait it will come. Really nice ur doc have u a scan quickly wat a fab doctor u have!! I'm getting comments like wow ur bumps small I'm like stop saying this to me lol it's really annoying ppl don't think but baby's in right proportion so I'm not worried any more. Xxxx

katesav87 Sat 12-Jan-13 17:21:01

Hey f it's defo a boy :-) saw all his bits lol even got a picture lol! Just thought I'd let u know xxx

MrFranklyShankly Sat 12-Jan-13 20:31:49

Oh thats just great news kate im so happy for you u must be over the moon and so nice to get a pic...i cant wait to get some pics at my scan (the big one at the hospital) isnt till february:-( feels like a life time away will hve my head wel wrecked by then! Gonna try some relaxation techniques at nite time for a while now see if it keeps me sane...i did them last year as i hd an awful yr with a health scare and then later hd the mc...so my anixety levels were thru the roof...a friend told me about them and i hve to say they really helped so gonna hve a bath and stick on my ipod and do some chilling out! Hopefully baba mite make a few moves then:-) delited about ur news kate, we def sound quite similar, id never judge anyones feelings pg is an emotional rollercoaster and us women hve a hard enuf time with being made feel guilty about everything lol so never worry about anyone else. Chat to u soon. Njoy ur happiness now;-) F xxx

MrFranklyShankly Thu 17-Jan-13 15:37:57

Hi Kate, How are things going with you??? Hows bump and you doing??? I've been having major panic attacks the last few days, just worrying away that somethings wrong....cant figure out if I'm feeling any movements or not, I think I'm thinking sooo much about it that I cant actually make out if I'm having these little flutterings or not (really need to chill out a bit!) and then got up this morn and thought my 'bump' just didnt look as pregnant as it should be, thought it looked a bit flat looking, just where babs should be.....I really have my own head wrecked....but then I sat down to do some googling here and have started to def feel something (even if it isnt baba) Its a bit more reassuring....really have to stop worrying.......so that's my ranting for the day! My dh I think has closed his ears to my woes now, so its a good thing for Mumsnet!!

Hope your keeping well....chat soon
