Thank you Lola,
I can't go on being this scared, im getting so stressed over silly things! sad

lola1980 Mon 05-Aug-13 13:28:28

Hi Fleurie, I can totally empathise with you. I had two miscarriages in a row so this pregnancy I've done nothing but worry. I was sent for early scans for reassurance, if you go to your doctor and explain your worries they can refer you to the Early Pregnancy Unit. I saw my baby at 6wks and 8wks. I'm now 40wks and still can't believe I've made it this far, although I still can't relax until she's out. I hope things work out for you this time, it is possible! smile

Hi Fleurie. Congratulations! You're in good company on this thread. Lots of positive stories where many ladies have felt like you and gone on to have wonderful outcomes. Good luck to you!

Hi... I'm a newbie!
I'm 34, already have 2 daughters aged 17 and 15. I had a MMC a couple of years ago, went along for my 12 week scan, where she told me the baby had died at about 10 weeks. I never bled or had any signs, had to go to hospital to have the baby taken away.
Now I'm 5 weeks pregnant and absolutely terrified! Every little pain or ache scares me, every time I have a wee, I expect to see bleeding. Don't know how I'm going to bring myself to go to the 12 week scan. On top of all that I've got an UTI which I'm taking antibiotics for. I'm so scared, don't know how I'm going to get through this. Help!!

Just thought i would drop back in i'm 32 weeks on Sunday now not long to go!

Mrsd77 Fri 02-Aug-13 10:42:15

Good luck Lola. I understand the horrible worrying. Having L safely here has been such a relief. Hope your slow labour is nice and quick at the end! After all the worry you deserve a sneeze birth!!

lola1980 Thu 01-Aug-13 17:25:46

Mrsd that's fab news, congratulations! I suffered two m/c before this pregnancy, and I've done nowt but worry at every little thing... My OH has been extremely supportive even though I've been a bloody nightmare. I'm now 39+1 and in slow labour... Still can't relax until she's born though but we've almost made it! grin

Mrsd77 Thu 01-Aug-13 09:12:33

Hi all. This thread seems to be no longer current, but felt it was important to complete my story as this thread was a massive source of support in the early days.

Libby was born 8 days ago by elcs, weighing 9lb 8oz! All is going really very well indeed. I still can't believe she's here and is safe and happy and content.

If anyone is out there and wobbling, this pregnancy business can be done! Phew!

PurplePoppySeed Thu 13-Jun-13 22:41:35

vix same as me smile

MrsD I was looking back through the thread and thought you might be getting closer smile exciting times!

Welcome MrsShrubs lots of hand holding on here, and some lovely stories if you read through-they certainly helped me get through the first 12-14 weeks smile

MrsShrubs Thu 13-Jun-13 18:19:11

Hi everyone, can I join? We had a MC at the beginning of March (our first pregnancy) and fell pregnant straight away afterwards. Now practically at 14 weeks with EDD 14 December so fingers crossed this Christmas will be an extra special one!

Mrsd77 Wed 12-Jun-13 21:18:47

Hi. I've been lurking for ages just not had much to say. I'm 33 weeks tomorrow! Eek! Not long now!

Thinking of making next week my last at work. Too exhausted to do anything properly!

vix206 Wed 12-Jun-13 18:45:34

I fell pregnant after my first normal period after natural MC if that makes sense!!

PurplePoppySeed Wed 12-Jun-13 18:30:21

Sounds like we had similar gaps as you'll be close to the EDD by then, good luck and keep us posted on here smile

vix206 Wed 12-Jun-13 18:01:14

Thank you! Yay for you being in the 3rd trimester, I know I will feel sad come mid-November too.

PurplePoppySeed Wed 12-Jun-13 17:53:35

Of course, welcome and sorry for your loss, its a scary time, keeping fingers crossed for you until your scan xx

it's been a bit quiet recently, hopefully everyone's ok and just so busy enjoying pregnancy, they've forgotten the thread wink

vix206 Wed 12-Jun-13 16:47:22

Hello! Can I de-lurk and join?

I miscarried at the end of March between 6-7 weeks pregnant. I'm now almost 8 weeks pregnant and hoping all is well this time. I also have a DS who is almost 3.

PurplePoppySeed Wed 12-Jun-13 16:29:06

It's gone very quite in here! elsabel how are you, any news?

Hope everyone is doing well?

Finally into the third trimester here, can't believe it! My last due date was this week so even though I'm pregnant again it's been a pretty emotional week, can't wait to get past it and feel more positive again smile

elsabel Tue 14-May-13 17:02:39

Friday is my last day, so only 3 to go! Cant come quickly enough just want to get sorted as dont feel very prepared! Midwife said shes a big baby, but apparently that doesnt mean she will be early so we will see smile

Whens your due date? Hopefully the summer isnt too uncomfortable for you

PurplePoppySeed Tue 14-May-13 16:55:16

Oh wow, brilliant news, could be any time now then ;) are you on maternity leave yet? I'm hoping to leave work as late as possible unless August becomes unbearably hot!

elsabel Tue 14-May-13 16:50:37

Sorry was meant to be smile not smile haha

elsabel Tue 14-May-13 16:49:22

Hi all, havent been on for a while and im glad to see everyone doing well! Congrats to all of you who have recently had good scans!! smile

I only have 19 days until my due date..eek!! Has gone so quickly i cant believe it!

PurplePoppySeed Tue 14-May-13 16:08:29

Ah ok, my scan write up said it, they handed me that in the room & I added it to my folder. I can't believe the mess they made with your notes re another MC - shocking!

nerual Tue 14-May-13 15:01:56

I only get my notes next week (they have taken ages to appear because they were archived as they mistakenly had me down for a miscarriage this pg!). So they've had to dig them out of archives, I get them next week when I go back for my consultant appt. Will have a look then... It could also just be because it's my second pg; although I am by no means overweight, my tummy is definitely not as tight as it used to be (*sob*) so I think that the kicking is not as noticeable...

PurplePoppySeed Tue 14-May-13 14:53:51

Should be on your notes from the scan smile they'd only tell you if you ask or if its low. Could be high anterior like mine, hence less feelings?

nerual Tue 14-May-13 13:33:03

I didn't ask, is it the kind of thing they would mention without me asking?
