Just checking in, how are you all doing? Did I let you know we were discharged from consultant care! Just the community midwife for me! The baby is showing no sign of going anywhere so they were pleased to stop the regular scans.

Feeling very organised, clothes are washed, Moses basket is here and a stash of nappies have landed.

How long to go MrsR? Great that you're no longer under consultant care smile

I'm 32+4 today. Looking forward to being on maternity leave, that's for sure!

MrsReiver Wed 16-Jan-13 09:16:03

I'm 34+2 shock so already past DS' date! I had a tiny scrappy newborn by this time with him.

Had some rather unpleasant cramps last night and a lot of pressure - feels like nerve pain around my cervix, but I'd spoken to a MW about that and she assured me it's normal. Everything from now on is new territory so I keep having to check "is this okay?" and I know if I'm ever worried I can pop to triage.

I've got 3 and a bit weeks to go then I'm on maternity leave - I can't wait!

welcome everybody and great news alpha grin so happy for you!! Best of luck with scans, big hugs and hand holding. Had an appt with midwife yesterday, due tomorrow and had to go through what happens if I go overdue, haven't a clue as dd was born at 38+6. Did get a bit sad at the thought that I may have to be induced if Seth doesn't want to come out, on the other hand I must be making a very cosy home for him! Getting a home visit from midwife on the 25th, I'll then be booked in for a sweep. He is now 3/5 engaged and I seem to be getting twinges more regularly, so you never know, he may make an appearance...hope you're doing ok mrsr&backward

gemdrop84 Wed 16-Jan-13 10:13:05

Fab news mrsr, sorry to hear about the cramps/cervix pain though, had that myself and it's very unpleasant!!

grainmum Wed 16-Jan-13 20:37:38

Hi everyone. I am pleased to report a lovely 20 week scan yesterday, all normal with normal measurements. We didn't find out the sex - we weren't planning too, but completely forgot about the possibility we might see anything until it was all over. Now preparing the shopping list! Also realised just how nervous DH was about it all - now he's seen baby nudging me he knows it's real!

grainmum Wed 16-Jan-13 20:41:48

Ooh gem just realised it's your due date! How exciting bet you can't wait. Thinking of you lots over the next few days. x

AlphaBeta2012 Wed 16-Jan-13 21:31:28

Thanks gem, oh is it your due date!? Wow, looking forwards to your lovely news! grin
Congratulations grain, wonderful news! grin. Glad we did want to find out sex and this little one didn't really give us a choice and both DH and I said 'so its a boy' before the sonographer even opened her mouth!
Such lovely things happening on this thread!

gemdrop84 Thu 17-Jan-13 08:22:05

It is my due date today! Can't believe it! Very sore and our dog was restless yesterday, she followed me everywhere! Hoping that's a sign things may kick off soon! With dd, I laboured at home for 5 hours. She sat with me all that time! Bless her! big congratulations grain and it must be a boy thing alpha as ds showed himself off too, dd was bit more modest and crossed her legs so we weren't 100% she was a girl!

001001 Thu 17-Jan-13 14:00:53

Great scan news grain, so pleased all is well, have fun shopping!

MrsReiver. Great to be so far along now,everything from here is a bonus.

Gem happy due date, know how ypu feel, am glad this baby has stayed put so long but would be happy to have it out now!

Glad to hear so much good news, still thinking of those waiting for scans, stressful time but fx for more positive outcomes :-)

Happy due date Gem! Let's hope things start soon x

Well after a panicky night of no movement, even with cold drinks etc, spent the morning at hospital having a trace, baby's hb was up to 190 and as soon as they put the belt on, baby started kicking like mad, made me feel a right idiot! Anyway, hb settled down and was sent home. The staff were really nice, told me I had done the right thing but was so cross with myself for overreacting! Loads of snow here so unnecessary journey not appreciated, luckily DH off work so home now and resting as was up most of the night. <yawn>

grainmum Sat 19-Jan-13 17:17:35

001 sorry to hear you had a worrying night but glad all is ok! I don't think you over-reacted at all, sounds like you did exactly the right thing. Just been to a massive pram shop and a bit overwhelmed! Think I need to go back on a week day and actually speak to someone - don't know where to start.

Any news from gem?

I think you did the right thing, too, 001. Always nice to be reassured x

gemdrop84 Sat 19-Jan-13 18:47:15

No sign of our Seth yet, funnily enough all the twinges I've been having have just about stopped since Thursday, his due date. Today woke up feeling very restless, tummy ache and backache. Thought this might be it but nothing. Dp has treated me to a curry for tea, see if that smokes him out ha ha. Spent the day in my pjs and pretty much done nothing. Getting fed up and starting to feel anxious again. Hope you're ok ladies x

gemdrop84 Sat 19-Jan-13 18:49:44

Glad everything is ok 001 x

Come on Seth, mummy's waiting! wink

001001 Tue 22-Jan-13 17:45:57

How's everyone doing? Mrsd and yellowsnow will be thinking of you both tomorrow for your scans, fx for good news all round.

Gem hope you are not too fed up if you are still waiting.

I am 37 weeks tomorrow and sooooo ready to méet baby now, hospital bags packed, crib up, just waiting for snow to go and then come on baby! The last few weeks always feels like another year! Lots of movements to reassure me now, baby doesn't want me to worry anymore :-)

Hope all is well with everyone

gemdrop84 Wed 23-Jan-13 07:37:17

Thanks 001 glad you're ok. Still waiting sad, getting frustrated now: just getting to the point of feeling really anxious again and worrying about him in there. I'm a hormonal mess, just bursting into tears at everything and biting dp's head off. Trying to keep active with all the long walks, bouncing about as people advise to do but last night it got too much. Switched my phone off and went to bed at 7pm! Woke up in the night and had a few twinges but all stopped again. Got a home visit with mw on friday, think she's planning on doing a sweep, so we will see. Best wishes to all with upcoming scans, fx for you xx

nerual Wed 23-Jan-13 09:15:33

Hi everyone. Has anyone else recently had BPF after m/c? I miscarried in Dec (anembrionic, found out on my 12 week scan), pg tests negative 10 days after ERPC and now getting BFP again. Waiting a few days to make sure that the line gets darker, and then will try and get an early scan somewhere. Great to read everyone else's stories on this thread!

AlphaBeta2012 Wed 23-Jan-13 10:17:49

Hi nerual, and welcome! Sorry for you mc, and congratulations on your BFP. yes I had 3 consecutive miscarriages, falling pregnant immediately one after another, each time I tested a couple of weeks after Mc and was negative, then positive a week or so after that. Each time the Dr's told me it was left over hormones and each time they were wrong, 4th time of this cycle stuck and I am now 22 weeks pregnant.
Congratulations!

nerual Wed 23-Jan-13 10:30:30

Congrats on reaching 22 weeks AlphaBeta2012. With your previous pregnancies after m/c, did you go to doctor when you suspected you were pg again, or do you go to EPU at the hospital? I've heard that you can go straight to EPU, but not sure... Also did they give you an early scan? Wondering if I will have to get one privately, as I'm not waiting till 12 weeks again to find out....

AlphaBeta2012 Wed 23-Jan-13 11:07:46

First MC was just with Dr, then I was sent to EPU and contacted them directly for the following 2. Don't be afraid to go straight to EPU, they're specialists in this area whereas GP's are good, they have to be general in a lot of areas so not always the best option in my opinion!
And yes had early scan at just gone 6 weeks, then 9 weeks, then normal 12 weeks. EPU was brilliantly supportive.

nerual Wed 23-Jan-13 11:35:55

Thanks for the info AlphaBeta2012, really helpful. I will call the EPU in a couple of days to see what they say. One final question - what date did you use to work out how many weeks you are? Date of m/c or date pg tests went negative? thanks again for all your help and so sorry you have become an expert in all this by going through it 3 times, that can't have been fun sad

RoxyLady Wed 23-Jan-13 11:39:29

After 3 miscarriages I am now 15 weeks and I felt
My baby moving for the first time
Little Butterfly waves in my tummy. Im so happy I could cry smile
