New thread!! The other one closed down!

Yay for dino and kate. Great news for you both!

I've just booked a gender scan 🙄 one week from tomorrow we will know what our little one is and also breaks up the wait until my 20 wk scan! So excited.

MissClarke86 Thu 25-Aug-16 15:30:22

Dino and Kate I am SO SO pleased for you both. It's amazing how invested you get in the other ladies lives here.

LynseyH Thu 25-Aug-16 16:07:21

Agree with that! A lady on another thread is in labour and keep checking back for news lol.

XxbecquixX Thu 25-Aug-16 17:09:01

Well done Kate!
And Lynsey I'm going so channel my excitedness through to your scan lol
Fingers crossed for healthy and after that I'm betting on pink 🎀🎀🎀

Marking my place xx

Found the new thread.... lynsey that's so exciting about the gender scan!! I know I have a long way to go but I can't decide if I want to find out the gender... Keep going back and forth between yes and no!

XxbecquixX Thu 25-Aug-16 17:58:04

I personally couldn't not know, there is soooo much more excitement in knowing, you can prepare a name and pick a crib and Pram and clothes etc
In my experience it makes the whole thing so much more real more quickly, all mine, except my youngest daughter where named before they where born.
My sister had a baby in December and decided not to find out after knowing with the other 3, but she struggled with the whole thing and just constantly changed her mind lol I said that the best thing to do was to get the sonographer to write it down and seal it in a envelope and then it was always there to hand if she changed her mind!

LynseyH Thu 25-Aug-16 18:28:20

Thanks ladies! I'm very excited, finally booked it as managed to sort child care for my others :-)
Haha xxbec I've had lots of guesses on my scan picture with a huge difference in the majority vote. I took a step back from it though as I was stressing myself over it.

Sorry I've been aeolian- gcse results day! I'm celebrating with ice cream as I can't have wine! It never bothered me during my pg with dd but this time I am really missing a glass of red!

Whatsername17 Thu 25-Aug-16 18:59:34

Awol^ not aeolian. I don't even know what that means!

JoMalones Thu 25-Aug-16 19:01:51

Hi. I wasn't very active in the last thread but hoping to hop back now we are hitting the third trimester and the fact that we are having a baby is starting to feel a bit real and scary

jpeg28 Thu 25-Aug-16 19:22:25

Hope you're results were good whatser... I celebrated with ice cream too... Red wine or something fizzy would have been amazing!

I've just guzzled almost a whole carton of juice.... Was craving it so bad like I do when I'm hungover! That's how I've felt all day today... Hungover without actually drinking... Not good!!

LuckyinOctober Thu 25-Aug-16 19:34:25

I can recommend the alcohol removed FRE range from ASDA for anyone missing a glass of wine - I bought a bottle of the White Zinfandel for a social event we were hosting at home because I didn't want to be the only one without a glass in my hand, and was pleasantly surprised that it tastes just like the Julio Gallo Rose. They do a merlot in that range too but not tried it yet - planning to take some down for a friend's wedding for the same reason of wanting to feel like I'm blending in with the group. Agree ice cream is also a good substitute!

Jo it's lovely to see you back again, how are you keeping? Has it been a smooth pregnancy for you so far?

Mrsunsure123 Thu 25-Aug-16 19:35:16

Congratulations on the scans lovely ladies!!

JPEG I wake up every morning feeling exactly like I've had a shed load to drink the night before! Very depressing when you realise actually you went to sleep on the sofa at 8 instead haha but hopefully all will be worth it!

Still struggling a bit here with the ongoing brown but so many health care professionals have told me today it's no cause for concern and was probably caused by the internal scan last week blah blah blah!

Anyway I missed the last round up I'm 7+3 😃

Can anyone give me any tips on getting through to the next scan? Or is it really just a case of muddling through each day which is what I seem to be doing?!

jpeg28 Thu 25-Aug-16 19:39:38

Sorry Jo cross posted.... I remember you from the TTC thread... Third trimester... That's so exciting!!!

Great tip on the wine lucky! I had tried tesco sparking alcohol free white wine... Basically grape juice!

XxbecquixX Thu 25-Aug-16 20:07:13

Mrs Did you read that clip that I posted from the miscarriage advice webpage, it was a really reassuring bit of statistical data on pregnancy progression after scans.
I felt a bit more positive after reading it, I'll add it again for you to read, may well give you some comfort from now until the next scan xxxx

XxbecquixX Thu 25-Aug-16 20:10:02

I wasn't going to put myself through the scans as even with a few good scans last time I was unfortunate, but now knowing that info, I feel as though I'd take them odds and feel quite positive about going the EPU again!

Mrsunsure123 Thu 25-Aug-16 20:22:15

Thank you so much for that Bec that's given me so much hope and also backed everything all the doctors and midwifes I've spoken to today have said. I guess I just have to wait it out to my next scan. I can be seen at the EPU again if needed so I think I'll just see what happens over the next few days smile thank you!!

Jo I also remember you from the other thread. Amazing amazing news your in the 3rd trimester - how exciting and so lovely to hear that smile

Trulyamnearanear Thu 25-Aug-16 20:45:49

Just checking in.

Feeling flutters. 17 weeks.
Also, does anyone else get bad dreams that's it's all gone wrong?

Naschkatze Thu 25-Aug-16 21:01:32

Found you! Thought it had gone a bit quiet over there. smile

Truly I'm having bad dreams about all sorts, including my previous loss and having to go through ERPC again. Sleeping so badly. I sympathise! Early on I tried using Bach's rescue remedy before bed which seemed to help so I must get some more. Might be worth a try!

XxbecquixX Thu 25-Aug-16 21:28:14

I don't know what the technical term for it is but I suffer with terrible terrible bad dreams, it's like my body processing my anxiety whilst I sleep, but I remember all different parts of all different dreams that have happened the nite before it's a frickin nightmare literally, some scary weird shit lol
It's very common to suffer from bad dreams in pregnancy, a friend told me that if you buy some 'hops' from the health food shop and put them under your pillow that works a treat!
Omg tho I'll tell you what I do suffer with in pg......kicky legs!!!!!!! You know when your legs just feel all heavy and you have to like move them and arrrrr I could literally chop them off lol any of you 2nd-3rd trimey gals started getting that yet?
Xxx

XxbecquixX Thu 25-Aug-16 21:30:39

But to make you laff truly, when I'm pregnant, I have, the same dream with every single pregnancy, it's that I've had the baby and I've go sheets or baby bedding!
What's that all about lol

doleritedinosaur Thu 25-Aug-16 21:39:05

Aeolian means wind blown Whatser. There's my degree coming in handy.

Thanks everyone. Feel on such a high today & a part of me still is nervous but I really want to be happy about this baby.

Everyone is so excited. OH loved being at the scan & he's on cloud 9 today.

My hospital actually doesnt tell you gender so I think I'm going to go for a surprise. At least Oh could find out first then tell me.

Hope everyone is having a good evening.

Whatsername17 Thu 25-Aug-16 21:47:15

Ah so it's not my phone making up words then?! My dh told me that dd was a girl when she was born. It was a really lovely moment! Results were good thanks jpeg. Now the fun starts again! Jo, lovely to hear from you and welcome Bec. I'm 18+6. 19 weeks tomorrow!

doleritedinosaur Thu 25-Aug-16 21:59:21

Nope definitely a word. Old red sandstone is a wind blown deposit which the Becon Beacons is full off. Most of the West Midlands churches & old buildings are made of it.

Aw wow nearly half way Whatser & that sounds so lovely of your DH.

Today's craving has been scones with cream. About to have second one.
