Thread for ladies who are freaking out panicking slightly when preggy after miscarriage.
Plenty of oldies. Newbies always welcome.

Ooh lovely new thread! Thanks IBIP thanks

Thinking about getting a Doppler - have been reading everyone's posts about them and understand the cons, but the pros would be lovely.
Should I just rent one for a month, or try to get one cheap on eBay?

shellsocks Sat 22-Jun-13 09:44:35

Thanks for the new thread pink grin

Where did smelly gush come from?! (I don't mean literally!) Ha ha

choc mine was only £20 from amazon so not worth renting IMO and I think it's the best thing I've ever bought so no cons from me, got my through the mid stages without losing my mind as much

Hope you're ok stitch x

IBelieveInPink Sat 22-Jun-13 09:53:10

No idea, but I found it amusing so I put it in!! smile

Choc - also a fan of doppler. When it works it is amazing and really helped. However, need to be prepared for baby hiding and not panicking about it!!

Those who have dd's already - what does your DP do with them when they have daddy/daughter time? I think mr pink is a little confused about what he is going to do with a pink baby now he can't go to the park for a kick around!! (I have told him he still can, but he is a little confused by this!!)

BumpKitty Sat 22-Jun-13 10:42:07

ibip well DD is only 2 but she loves playing football and doing anything outdoors, she loves being chucked about and tickled and swung around and DH and grandad's do this better than me! She also likes Lego and painting etc. she does like dolls and pink stuff too but he'll learn about that smile
I think my DH would have liked a DS but its their sperm that decides the sex so nothing to do with us women!

jmf294 Sat 22-Jun-13 10:50:11

Thanks for the new thread Pink.
Always feel a sense of relief when I make it to a new thread. Love to those who left us in the last thread.

My daughter age 3 loves playing in the garden, going to the park, playing on her scooter, Lego, and lots of dolls. My husband had to look after her for the day the other day- then went out for coffee and cake and spent the rest of the day watching DVDs and playing Lego!!

GaryBuseysTeeth Sat 22-Jun-13 11:29:10

shell, blackholes invited everyone on the last fred to slap her with a smelly gush shock
I believe she meant fish but you can't be too sure....

Choc, angelsounds Doppler, £17 on amazon. Very much recommended!

I know I'm 'more' pregnant than a lot of women on here (unless I go overdue & anda beats me to it!) so am more than happy to pass on any of my pg related stuff that might be useful once I've popped.

littlepinkfizz Sat 22-Jun-13 11:31:38

Can I join please? Got my BFP this week after a mc aut 13.5 weeks last July. Have 4 dc and had 2 mc before ds (2 years) so very nervous but excited.

Need someone to hold my hand. So want this pregnancy to go to term.dont drink or smoke. Not overweight. Excercise regularly,down to 1 coffee a day. Can't do any more.

Loo,king forward to getting to know you all and congratulations on your pregnancies smile

LuckySocks13 Sat 22-Jun-13 12:13:09

Welcome to the thread LittlePinkFizz smile wishing you a healthy and Uneventful pregnancy.
Still PMSL at slap me with a smelly gush grin

Pentagon Sat 22-Jun-13 12:16:33

thanks for the new thread ibip! When DH looks after DD for the day, he takes her for walks or bike rides at the park or they play in the garden (with ball, scooter, bubble gun, painting); and she loves pottering around in DH's garage!

fizz welcome, congratulations on your pregnancy and good luck! I have a 2 yr old DD and I'm now 21 weeks with another little girl apparently smile. I hope you're not feeling too rough (probably too early for that anyway). Do you think you'll be having an early scan?

andadietcoke Sat 22-Jun-13 12:40:46

littlepinkfizz congratulations and welcome! We're very (very) good at hand holding (but not so good at taking our own advice...)

I still want a Doppler - especially since their movement's changing at the moment and getting a bit more discreet. I'd need one with a digital reading to differentiate between the heartbeats though - has anyone got one of those?

I don't think I have much pg related stuff to pass on, but like gary am more than happy to - if anyone would like some Next cropped under bump jeans let me know - I forgot to return them and they don't fit me. They're an 18 but more like a 16 I think - my problem with them is they're not very stretchy and I am 'large of calf'. Anyway - free to a good home if anyone wants them smile

BlackholesAndRevelations Sat 22-Jun-13 13:41:14

Hehe- very amused that my smelly gush typo made it to the title!

Welcome to the new thread everyone and especially littlrpinkfizz- wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy! How old are all of your other dc? pumpkinsweetie is also on dc number five I think!

LuckySocks13 Sat 22-Jun-13 13:49:36

My DS is 3.4 at the moment.
Love my Doppler. It is a digital one. Sololone B I think. Got it off ebay.
Yes thanks for the thread Pink. Forgot to say smile

JanieLovesLuckySocks Sat 22-Jun-13 15:51:25

thanks for the new thread pink! having a right giggle at the smelly gush!!

and welcome fizz i'm sure i remember you from the ttc thread smile sounds like you're doing everything you possibly could be doing! keep up the good work yay!

chocolate i'm all for the doppler, but not too early! panicked myself the first time i tried it (12wks i think) and couldn't hear a heartbeat but now it's fab! i borrowed a friends angelsound one

LuckySocks13 Sat 22-Jun-13 17:24:58

Agree with Janie. I couldn't find the heart beat until between 16 and 17 weeks! Hope everyone's having a lovely weekend? I'm of out for a couple of hours tonight to see my Dad play in his band. Just had to resort to a cup of coffee to keep awake. Only had about 3 in the last 4 months and boy can I feel that one!
We are hopefully off to Thomas Land on Monday with DS weather permitting! Best put on those lucky socks!

Yay, a new thread smile

Actually made a purchase today on something that temps fate, but as it's now in my loft i will forget for now i bought it-a saving i could not resist!

ChocolateCremeEggBag Sat 22-Jun-13 18:53:02

Thanks for the Doppler tips!

Yay Fizz good to see you over here!

stitchinline Sat 22-Jun-13 20:03:51

Chocolate - I have an angel sounds doppler from dd that I am going to be getting rid of - if you want it just pm me your details and I'll send it to you.
I just can't be bothered to ship it and have no room in my suitcase.

Have managed to get through the first day and feeling ok. Just a few more to go.

GardenWorm Sat 22-Jun-13 20:37:26

Hello new thread

Hello Peeps

Hello Fizz

Hey Stich one down only two to go (as you can't count Tuesday), hope the next two days go as well as today x

StarsInTheNightSky Sat 22-Jun-13 20:40:30

Can I join in please? I'm now just under eight weeks pg after two previous mc, this will be our first dc. Feeling very scared at the moment as I started spotting this morning. TMI --> Just a tiny, tiny amount of brown and then a little bit of pink and only when I wipe, and not everytime I go to the toilet but it triggered full on panic. The midwife has booked me into the epu for a scan on Tuesday morning as that was the earliest they could do. I'm trying to keep calm and rest and think posifrekintivity. Sorry to be a misery.

andadietcoke Sat 22-Jun-13 20:43:26

Hi stars try not to worry too much - I started with that at 7.5 weeks and it continued until about 24 weeks - I have a cervical ectropion - really common, and not associated with any complications. Hope Tuesday comes quickly for you...

StarsInTheNightSky Sat 22-Jun-13 20:51:19

andadietcoke thank you, that's made me feel a lot better. I don't have any pain or cramping yet, and hopefully won't get any! I have been trying to explain to DP that I just need a bit more hand holding. Sign. Think I'm turning into a great blob of panic and paranoia, and I'm usually very calm. Sorry about that and thanks again

ChocolateCremeEggBag Sat 22-Jun-13 21:28:18

Hi stars - welcome to the thread, and please try not to panic. No pain or cramping is a really good sign. Just take it very easy and rest as much as you can until Tuesday.

Stitch - that is so kind of you - I am really hoping that you still need it as you will be getting good news on Tuesday

shellsocks Sat 22-Jun-13 21:34:51

Ha ha forgot abt the gush fish lol lovin that it's in the thread title grin

pumpkin I made a almost purchase, more like a commitment to purchase today too and totally feel like I've tempted fate hmm DH, me and DS had a date next Sun to go to town for the day and go to John Lewis and try all the prams as its the weekend after the 20w scan and we have done nothin yet together for the new baby...we can't go for various reasons now so we went today instead and I've fell in love so nothing else will do chosen the one I want (baby jogger grin) but now I feel like I've totally tempted fate and why couldn't we bloody wait till after the scan confused

Welcome fizz and stars congrats on your BFPs smile Plenty of hand holding here and no worry is too small (or bonkerswink) to air here, one or all of us is bound to have thought/been through the same x

StarsInTheNightSky Sat 22-Jun-13 21:40:58

ChocolateCremeEggBag thank you for the welcome and thanks, I'm starting to feel more reassured now, still feeling pretty cautious though. I am thinking positive though. Thanks again.
