9 weeks and tingling in abdomen

(144 Posts)
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

MrFranklyShankly Tue 23-Oct-12 18:27:47

Hi ive hd something similar to this...had it a few yrs ago went to gp and they sent me for hysteroscopy at the hospital...didnt show anything up told me all looked normal in there...ive googled it loads but cant find anything really that matches it...is it like a twitching feeling???? Mine is a bit like that...sorry im of no help but wuld love to know what it is too and how it might affect a pregnancy...will keep an eye on the thread. Frankly :-)

katesav87 Tue 23-Oct-12 18:29:53

Hi frankly I've googled it and can't find n e thing really just that it's either the uterus growing of maybe blood flow. Just hope it's nothing bad. I'm obsessed with this pregnancy! So scared I will loose it. Have had 2 scans and see the heartbeat both times but I'm still on edge. Wish I could just be happy x

MrFranklyShankly Tue 23-Oct-12 18:49:10

Hi kate yeah its prob nothing to worry about but i totally understand i hd a mmc in aug and it was awful so i can well imagine how anxious u wuld be...but the fact u've had 2 scans is excellent and seeing the heartbeat is a great sign all is well, really hope e'thing goes well....im currently late by 3 days and im terrifed to even do a hpt....so nervous about what mite/nite not be....good luck with ur pg and congrats by the way meant to say that in my 1st post:-)

katesav87 Tue 23-Oct-12 18:54:03

Aw thank u. Yes all the miscarriages really get to u! I'm sorry u had to experience a mmc it is just truly awful!! Wow good luck to u. I hope u find out soon and u are. Totally understand being nervous to know tho. Just wait until ur ready. R u usually late? X

MrFranklyShankly Tue 23-Oct-12 19:45:10

Im usually bang on time or even a day before so this really has my head fried...altho this will be me 2nd cycle after the mc so im thinking maybe itl take a while to get it bck to normal...so scared to get my hopes up and will be terrifed if i am...just wish things were uncomplicated...we just want babies why does it hve to be so difficult!! Thanks for the gd luck wishes will let u know how i get on:-\

katesav87 Wed 24-Oct-12 17:09:19

How u getting on frankly? Have u found out yet x

MrFranklyShankly Wed 24-Oct-12 18:44:36

Hi kate well still no sign of Af dont know what to think wil prob go get a test tomorrow if still no sign....just so nervous about it....felt really queasy this morn and all day so maybe culd be something....only thing is the boobs arent really that sore or fuller...just a tiny bit sensative which has me worrying that if i am pregnant maybe the hcg levels arent going very high and that just scares the life outta me....sorry long answer ull be sorry u asked!! How r u today feeling anymore relaxed....mcs really leave u so scared and paranoid, its horrible:-(

katesav87 Wed 24-Oct-12 22:00:31

Hi frankly it sounds like u could be. Get that test :-) my boobs weren't sore to begin with just nipples (sorry to be so graphic) were abit sensitive. Now if I knock them or weirdly even go for a wee they hurt. Still makes me worry tho that baby is gone and I'm going to have a mmc. Today been feeling rubbish sick and tired and can't stop eating to try make the nausea go away. I wish pregnancy was easier and definate so we could all enjoy it. It's so unfair we have to experience mc because they really scar u. Fingers crossed for u!! I admire ur patience. :-) x

MrFranklyShankly Wed 24-Oct-12 22:11:06

Hi kate....well my patience ran out!!! Went to asda,got a test and what can i say BFP!!!! Dh and me both are in total shock and fear....now the worry begins....so really hope we get happy outcomes this time kate....bring on the morning sickness!!:-) x

katesav87 Wed 24-Oct-12 22:22:27

Oh my god congratulations wat an amazing suprise :-) so very happy for u!! Maybe we can moan together hehe. So how far do u think u are. I just new I was this time. It's werid how u just have this feeling isn't it. Hopefully ur morning sickness is not to bad! Mines more nausea all day xxx

MrFranklyShankly Wed 24-Oct-12 22:28:54

Aw thanks kate yeah be good to hve someone to handhold to get us thru! Well i think im just about 4 weeks eeeek soooo early im just petrafied to even think about it...sorry to hear uve been feeling unwell hopefully thats a gd sign...i hd no sickness at all with my mc pregnancy so a bit of nausea would be very welcome....:-)

katesav87 Wed 24-Oct-12 22:38:28

Aww it will go quick I found out so early and remember thinking god I'm never gonna get to 12 weeks with out going insane but I'm 9weeks now and hoping and praying all ok. But who knows I just have to see wat happens. I won't let myself get excited or think about the future untill 12 week scan. Yes I agree I hate nausea but actually I like it because I never got it with my 2 mc. I did with my mmc tho and with my DD I had hyperemesis so now that worrys me as I'm not in hospital on a drip because I can't stop throwing up lol. I just expected it to be the same so I think cos I am not that's y I'm scared I'm going to lose this one. Sorry for the long message. I've talked the ears off my dh my friends and my family and they r sick of me being negative. Do u have n e children? X

MrFranklyShankly Thu 25-Oct-12 10:30:24

Morning Kate, hows things today?? Had the worst night sleep...wakened at half 3 feeling soooo sick, like I was on a boat! that mixed with dread, excitement and just utter fear, keep thinking one minute yeah maybe being positive is the way to go, and then feeling guilty for feeling positive as something has to go wrong...agggghhhh!

I know exactly what you mean, if I dont have nausea then I'm worried, and if I do I hope it doesnt get any worse and make me ill.....worry worry worry! so I know exactly what you mean, so rant away here I'm only too happy to moan and rant along with you, its good to have some outlet for the worry, my poor Dh is terrified to say the least so I'm trying to keep a lid on it in front of him and act normal! So hard to do!

Yeah I have 2 DDs....my first DD I didnt realise I was pg with her until I was about 7/8 weeks, such a good pregnancy, flew through it in total ignorant bliss and enjoyed every month of it....DD2 took us a good while to conceive and then the preganancy was hard enough, lots of bleeding and bedrest as I was terrified of loosing her...so thats why I'm worried sick now, got pg this time quickly so thinking that must be a bad sign (always finding the negative!) keep reading stories on the threads about other women who have gotten pregnant quite quickly after a mc and then gone on to have another mc, so would love to hear a happy outcome from something like that.....have a gp appointment tomorrow morning so will talk over everything with him see what he says, am tempted to ask about baby aspirin?? Dont know what he'll say! Hope your feeling good today (as in you've lots of lovely pg symptoms!!)

Frankly x

katesav87 Thu 25-Oct-12 10:56:25

Morning frankly, been sick twice this morning at work. Struggling with work and my emotions. Feel really sad sometimes and just seem to cry. Wat r we like hey! These weeks before the 6th are going so slow now!! I just want to go home and curl up in bed. Glad to hear u feel sick haha. All good signs. I know wat u mean I feel like I can't be postive just yet I hate talking about it as I'm so scared ill jinx it and at the scan it would of gone. Y is it all so hard. Just cos uve had a mc quite recentely dosent mean u will have one again so try as much as u can to just take ur vitamins eat well and think postive. Hard for me to say that hehe. Hope the Docter reassures u tomorrow xxx

MrFranklyShankly Fri 26-Oct-12 10:26:13

Hey Kate, how are you today??? Hope the sickness is lasting (meant in a good way of course!) I know what you mean about not being able to be positive, very hard but if you look at it statistically your risks of mc are falling everyday, especially now you've had a scan with hb seen, so your stats for a healthy pregnancy are much higher than a mc (I have been googling, can you tell!!!) and I think that sudden outburst of crying is a good sign too, hormones taking a good auld surge, just what ya want.....although I know its not nice that feeling of sadness, Im having that at the mo too, its like this has in a way brought up all the feelings I had with the mc......but all is looking good for you......

Well I had my Gp appointment - and to be honest, I'm not very confident, took ages for the positive to show up on the test....so he said its really early days.....also last night all symptoms I had y'terday, just all left, no sore boobs, no nausea, no tears, feel totally normal, the boobs are really worrying me, they've even seemed to have deflated back to normal, where as they had been a bit fuller and had that 'look' about them....but totally normal......although Gp told me its too early to be taking note of things like that yet, but they're going to book me into the EPU for a scan in 2 weeks time.....to be honest, I really think it is over before its begun this time.....and if thats the case, thats me done, not going through this stress of worrying constantly again, its just not fair on all of us.......anyway hope your doing well......


katesav87 Fri 26-Oct-12 18:47:04

Hi frankly. I'm sure it's just early days for u,, my symptons were on and off for ages until now and even now some days I'm sick and some days I'm just nauseas. I know it's hard but just stay postive and don't read to much into it. I can't really give that advice I know lol. It's good that he's scanning u hopefully ur 2 weeks will come round quickly. I know wat u mean tho about trying again its to stressfull I just don't think I can do it again I'm only young and don't want my DD to be an only child biut I'm seriously not strong enough to do it. I have all my fingers crossed for u xxx

katesav87 Sat 27-Oct-12 19:55:50

Hi frankly how u feeling today xxx

MrFranklyShankly Sat 27-Oct-12 21:45:13

Hi kate how are you and little bean keeping? Well im fine today, which isnt something i want! I know it is prob early days but the lack of sore boobs, sickness(altho i cant look at anything sweet!) and general pg symptoms has got me so paranoid....just expecting the worst...anyway ill just hve to chill and wait and see how it pans out...hows things with u?

MrFranklyShankly Sat 27-Oct-12 21:50:04

Forgot to ask u if u had anymore twitchy/tingly feelings since?? Ive been having a few dont knoe if its somethng else i shuld add to the worry list!

katesav87 Sun 28-Oct-12 09:57:23

Hi frankly I remember in the early days I felt nothing my boobs were slighty sore but other than that I was so worried as with my DD I was sick right from wen I found out!! It's only been in the last few weeks I've really felt pregnant. Can't even put a top on with boobs hurting and nausea is all day with small bouts of sickness every now and then. I bet u r having a few good days then all of a sudden it will hit u but remember not everyone gets symptons!!! U have no bleeding or pain so hang in there! Yea I've had a little but more not as much as I had. It's such a werid feeling its almost like the feeling u get wen u first feel them move but I know it can't be that! Very strange. Got my scan in a week and 2 days!!!! So so scared xxx

MrFranklyShankly Sun 28-Oct-12 17:10:41

Hi kate thats great that u hve ur scan soon enuf...altho totally understand how scared u will be its totally terrifing and a bit exciting too..will keep fingers and toes crossed for u;-) well ive hd no symptoms at all...no bleeding but lots of cramping since lastnite:-( and some twitching too feels a bit strange, like u say like baby moving...so im trying not to get too anxious but its so hard not to think the worse...

katesav87 Sun 28-Oct-12 17:39:46

Aw of course it is hard to not think the worst!! I just think its so early for u I had such bad pain in the very beginning I ended up in hospital in a and e! Think it was just the stretching!! I've just had the werid tingling it seems to be wen I relax then I can feel it it's so werid!!! X

MrFranklyShankly Sun 28-Oct-12 19:56:03

That's good to know Kate that's put me a bit more at ease i hd read that but of course still thinking the worst !yeah I've noticed the twitching is usually when im resting just really hope its something and nothing maybe we're just so tuned into whats going on we're picking up on every little bump,its probably normal (i hope so anyway :-)) just had some sickness hd takeaway there with hubby and felt so ill im the middle of eating...hoping thats a gd sign !and not that we had a dodgy takeaway!!!!

katesav87 Sun 28-Oct-12 20:31:09

No that sounds like a good sign if it was dodgy it would of taken a while :-) all sounds good to me. My sickness has been bad today actually this is the worst I've felt today in my whole 10 weeks so seriously don't worry about no feelings it'll soon hit u. I couldn't even get out of bed today :-( and sorry for the detail but really struggling with my bowels so constipated its horrible!
N e way on a lighter note I hope u managed to finish ur takeaway! Xxx

katesav87 Mon 29-Oct-12 14:40:33

Hi frankly how u feeling today? Hope uve been sick hehe that sounds horrible of me! I've had to come home from work today I feel so bad as I've had a really bad year of sickness as I had my gall bladder removed and had a lot of time of sick with that :-( feeling abit down today really thrown up this morning and feel faint and tired. But keep thinking knowing my luck all this is in my head and wen I have my scan next Tuesday it will be gone :-( feel like all my work collegues r angry at me to for going off again. Just wish my life would be simple for once xxxx

MrFranklyShankly Mon 29-Oct-12 17:08:12

Hi Kate
aww god love you it's hard going this pg lark...i was like that with dd2, ended up having to take loads of time of work...but your better to look after yourself and baba i really wuldnt think about anyone else other than ur family...work will get over themselves...jeez u've had a yr of it..the gallbladder is such a sore thing my mum hd hers removed a few months ago ..so just be kind to urself and dont worry about anyone else....
Well i got over my takeaway....and yep managed to finish every bit of it regardless!!! The only thing today is im famished with hunger...could eat everything im site!! Feel like im takimg a sore throat to boot....so the worry goes on! Well look after urself now do watever makes u feel better and fimgers crossed ur scan will go well xx

katesav87 Tue 30-Oct-12 09:03:31

Thanks frankly hope ur feeling ok today x

MrFranklyShankly Tue 30-Oct-12 18:30:02

Hi kate how r u 2day?? Im fine...hd a little bit of nausea this morn when i was hvin breakfast but thats it really....altho im starting to think i made myself feel nausa as im thinking bout it so much...a bit tired this eve but then im always tired!! Wat about u?? Im so fed up feeling so negative just feel like im on alert and cant relax atall thinking the worst all the time is just getting to me...and im too scared to think happy thoughts in case it all goes wrong again:-( sorry im a rite bag of misery this eve!

katesav87 Tue 30-Oct-12 19:10:25

Aww I totally understand how u feel!! It's horrible isn't it u get urself so worked up over it. I have come to the conclusion that if it happens there's nothing u can do to stop it. Although I sometimes can't think like that cos I'm desperate for this baby to stick which Im sure is the same for u. I can't take n e more heartbreak. Nausea is good!!! Remember its still early days. Just try and relax and do everything right that's all u can do! How's ur DH is he supportive. I've ended up buying a Doppler yesterday got it today and heard the heartbeat. Although knowing me it wasn't the baby. See I can't be postive incase the worst happens!! Wat r we like hey!! Do u have any appointments coming up? Xxxx

MrFranklyShankly Tue 30-Oct-12 21:23:39

Ohh dh is really good so supportive, think he thinks now by not talking about me being pg at the mo he's helping me not worry but kimda feel like im dealing with it all....aww that most be so reassuring to hear the heartbeat at least it will set ur mind at ease...i know i go from thinking if something is going to go wrong it and there wont be anything i can do to stop it and then i feel myself getting into a complete panic coz i know this will prob be our last try....im waiting to get my appointment letter for the epu...hopefully this week...im 5 weeks now...hoping and dreading all at the same time...wat r we like is rite:-)

katesav87 Tue 30-Oct-12 21:32:06

I'm glad he's supportive. I won't talk about it with my DH I won't let him plan n e thing past the scan!!! Just find it hard to think everything will be ok. 5 weeks yay ur still going so keeping all my fingers and toes crossed for u. I wish I could see into the future and see our baby's with us. I'm fed up of being so down about such a happy time! Xxx

MrFranklyShankly Thu 01-Nov-12 10:44:22

Hi Kate, how are you feeling today??? Well I had a call from the EPU yesterday and they've booked me in for a scan on Tuesday (is that the same day as yourself?) I have to say I'm terrifed, and since that call, I feel like any symptoms I did have, have totally disappeared, no sickness this morn at all, not even feeling queasy...I cried for ages after the phone call, I'm just so nervous about it, that it'll be the same news as the last time I was there.....dh was great y'terday eve trying to reassure me and calm me down.....but I really think its going to be bad news.....wish we could see in the future kate and see two lovely bouncing babies, wouldnt it be sooo nice.....so scared to get my hopes up at all, cant even think in anyway ahead...its horrible being so down at whats suppose to be such a nice time....well I hope your feeling okay today, and your still going strong with your symptoms....

Frankly x

katesav87 Thu 01-Nov-12 11:16:28

Oh frankly it's horrible feeling that way, I promise u tho I had no symptons at ur stage just a tiny bit of soreness around my nipples that's it. Now I'm throwing up and am dehydrated just been to the docs and if no better tomorrow ill be admitted to hospital to be put on a drip. I asked the Docter y it was happening so late he said around 10 weeks the hcg levels peak and so causes u to feel like this. I'm sure u will get the symptons soon. But remember ppl sometimes don't have n e thing. Yes ur scan is the same day as mine :-) I'm hoping u get great news that will put ur mind at rest. I know it's a hard time wen it should be a happy time. Just keep thinking no bleeding and pain is a good sign I think there is a little fighter in there! Hurry up Tuesday xxxx

MrFranklyShankly Thu 01-Nov-12 18:16:02

Aw god love you kate u poor thing... A friend ended up in hospital on a drip with the same thing im her last pg and it really helped her so i hope ur feeling a bit better this eve...well ive hd such bd cramping all afternoon really worried this how it started last time lots of cramping just trying to rest see if they ease up any...hope ur feeling ok. Frankly x

katesav87 Thu 01-Nov-12 18:24:31

Oh no I really hope it isn't starting maybe its just stretching pain I got really bad pains down there at 5 weeks I ended up going to a and e cos it hurt so much. Fingers crossed rest up and I hope it passes xxx

katesav87 Sat 03-Nov-12 08:59:10

Hey frankly how r u doing? X

MrFranklyShankly Sat 03-Nov-12 15:40:51

Hi kate well hd a dramatic day of it yterday...ended up goin to the epu for a scan hd really bad cramping all nite thurs...fri morn hd some bleeding...really freked out so got in for a scan which showed a gest sac and yolk sac...said e'thing looked as it shuld be but they took bloods to check hcg levels and i went home still hving lots of cramping...then hospital called me lastnite asking me to come in as hcg levels were extemely high and they thought i mite be hving an ectopic...so off we went for more scans and poking around...and they finally let me home lastnite saying e'thing seems fine??? So im a real bag of nerves now, relieved a bit by the scan but still hving lots of cramping, its quiet sore...no more bleeding and still no symptoms or sickness...feeling like its just goin to go the same way as last time....hve another scan on friday nxt....so fingers crossed.. So how r u kate?? Hows the sickness???

katesav87 Sat 03-Nov-12 17:02:19

Oh I'm so sorry to hear uve had a bad time of it :-( but then again I'm happy all is ok!! If ur hcg levels r really high that is such a great sign!!! And everything is in right place. I think it is looking good so far :-) did they say how far gone u are? U rest up and make sure ur not doing alot. Hope the bleeding has stopped and ur not in to much pain. Must of been really scary for u, my hcg levels were really high at 6 weeks!!! I'm ok on 2 types of anti sickness now. Nearly got admitted yesterday to hospital was so dehydrated but now tablets seem to have kicked in so nausea still there ur sickness has gone. I thought I would be scared cos sickness kind of reminds me everything's ok still but boobs still sore so fingers crossed. I really have everything crossed for u. But I think things r looking good. We're they happy with everything in the end? Xxx

MrFranklyShankly Sat 03-Nov-12 19:53:12

Yeah they said they were very happy with it all, looked healthy....the dr lastnite thought i was around 5+6 but im hving a lot more cramping all eve with more bleeding :-( really feels like my period....thats gd u got the tablets...altho i know wat u mean id be the same the sickness wuld nearly be reassurance...even tho its horrible...but it sounds like e'thing is goin good fingers crossed...id say ull be happier after ur scan on tues ..i really am not hopefull atall:-(

katesav87 Sat 03-Nov-12 21:32:32

Oh no not more bleeding maybe u have an erosion or something usually wen u miscarry ur hcg r really low wen I had my mc back in may my hormone level were like 300 then went down again now wen they tested this time they were like 32000 at the same stage. My friend has abit of bleeding at the same time as u she's now 6 months. I am really hoping for u!!! It must be so horrid for u. The not knowing. Is it heavy bleeding or spotting if u don't mind me asking. Go to hospital again if it gets worse. Xxxx

MrFranklyShankly Sat 03-Nov-12 21:43:43

Its like brown/dark red blood...the cramping is really bad tho...theres no flow its just there everytime i wipe(sorry for the graphics)! Its a bit like wen i mc the last time it started with cramping and brown spotting....its just really scary...altho hearing about ur friend has given me some hope....dont know if theres much the hosp can do for me to be honest....thanks for the advice tho kate its gd to hve someone to tell xx frankly

katesav87 Sat 03-Nov-12 21:48:38

I know wat u mean wen I had my mc that's all u associate the bleeding with but yes she had this. Only wen she wiped. And I think old blood is better than fresh blood. I really am hoping for u. Understand the hospital can't do much. It's a very horrible time for u and the constant stress and worrying really dosent make it better does it. Hope u get lots of rest tonight and tomorrow. Let me know how u r tomorrow. Always here to chat it's nice to have someone to speak to that knows how I/u r feeling. Kate x

MrFranklyShankly Sat 03-Nov-12 21:55:16

Thanks kate...i havent left the sofa all day! Poor dh &dd's hvent seen me all day im scared to move...xx

BrigitBigKnickers Sat 03-Nov-12 22:03:33

Both my Pregnancies were like this to start with- felt like I had a bee buzzing in there!

MrFranklyShankly Mon 05-Nov-12 12:06:22

Hi kate how r u today?? Has the tablets for ur sickness worked??? Fx

MrFranklyShankly Mon 05-Nov-12 18:25:12

Hope all is well with you kate. Thinking on you and hope everything goes okay with ur scan 2morrow...xxx

MrFranklyShankly Mon 05-Nov-12 20:17:06

Its hard goin bck again after a week off...do ur work know yet that ur pg?? I told a few people last time but i regreted that after all that happened...i still hve lots of spotting and cramping so im just goin to wait it out till scan on fri...great the tablets worked...strangly ive hd nausea all day actually sick twice...and boobs are aching..so im confusef to say the least! Gd luck in the morn totally understand being scared, ill be useless on fri with nerves....let me know it all goes...x

katesav87 Mon 05-Nov-12 20:23:50

It is hard going back especially knowing my scan is tomorrow aww wow I'm so glad ur feeling sick and boobs hurt!! I bet everything is all ok in there. Did the epu say why the thought u were bleeding. Alot of ppl have bleeding throughout the pregnancy which prob dosent make it n e better for u. I am really hoping all is ok for u! Thanks for the support for tomorrow will let u know as soon as I can tomorrow. U make sure u rest up as much u can! X

katesav87 Tue 06-Nov-12 11:05:07

Hey frankly had my scan all fine dates went back 2 days tho so 10 weeks 6 days today have to back on 16th nov for measurements but I'm praying alls looking good baby moving about and waving hands at us. Heartbeat all ok so fingers crossed feel angry with myself tho as still scared but I've read the chances go down of mc after 10 weeks hope ur ok xxx

MrFranklyShankly Tue 06-Nov-12 13:56:19

Oh Kate thats just fantastic news, so delighted to hear little baba was moving and waving at yas! I'm sure going back two days is quite normal, its hard to give an exact date from scans...I know that with the scans from my two DD, one minute I would be ahead of my dates (which I knew would be impossilbe as I was so sure of my exact dates with DD2) and then it would go back....so I'm sure that is completely normal...and yes the risk of mc is going down all the time, especially when you've seen a heartbeat and baby is growing....thats just the best news...although I totally agree I would still be scared, you could have a scan everyday and you'd still go home and worry....its impossible not to... well my sickness has really cranked up a notch.....wakened this morn at 4, and didnt know if I was going to be sick or was starving hungary! Still spotting and cramping....so of course now Im putting the sickness down to the fact that I'm going to end up mc at any minute (always the worst case wtih me!)......at work today and finding it very hard not to look green in front of people.....so glad to hear your good news Kate....fingers crossed now for Friday that all will be well...xx F

katesav87 Tue 06-Nov-12 16:31:18

Hey thank u u r so right we could a scan everyday and I'd still be scared. I just think I've had so much bad luck this year this can't be so easy and good luck to fall straight away. That just dosent happen to me. Everything goes wrong for me lol. I'm driving myself insane and I have no reason to. Bless u it's hard to be at work wen ur scared. I hope ur sitting down at work. Great news about the sickness. I really think its gonna be ok. Hope Friday comes quick for u. Xxxx

katesav87 Wed 07-Nov-12 20:05:49

Hey frankly how u doing? Xxx

katesav87 Thu 08-Nov-12 19:40:38

Good luck tomorrow frankly x

MrFranklyShankly Thu 08-Nov-12 20:08:47

Hi kate thank you am so nervous about tomorrow....feeling so sick the last few days really tired as well, not sleeping great with trips to the loo and then the worry always seems to be worse at nite esp when ur the only one awake!! How are you?? Have u relaxed anymore since ur scan?? I know exactly wat u mean wen u say that luck is never on ur side im one of those people too, if its goin to go wrong then itll happen to me!! But really hope we've hd our quota of bad things for one yr kate hopefully its time for the nice stuff to happen...hope ur feeling better....will prob nt sleep to gd 2nite im in at half 9 so at least i dont hve to wait all day....fingers crossed fx....will let u know how it goes...F xx

katesav87 Thu 08-Nov-12 20:46:14

Aww u sound like me u are now at the stage were I got all my symptons! I really think all is going to be ok for u u have such great symptons even tho they make u feel horrible but like u I don't read these signs as good I just expect a miscarriage n e day. Had a bad couple of days worrying thought my scan would re assure me but still got another week tomorrow to wait to wait to see baby again. I just keep thinking it can't be this simple to fall the first month and things be ok but hey maybe it's our time frankly!!!i really do hope so. I'm so moody at the mo being a terrible mother and wife. Tiredness is a killer and boobs r so sore. But sickness is only nausea thanks to the lovely tablets. I am really praying for u tomorrow and hope u see ur bouncing baby in there I'm sure u will. Let me know how it goes. Hope u get some sleep ill be looking forward to the trips to the loo to tonight! NOT haha. Xxxxxx

katesav87 Fri 09-Nov-12 13:59:37

Hi frankly hope ur scan went well thinking off u xxx

MrFranklyShankly Fri 09-Nov-12 16:54:21

Hi kate, well the scan went great....got to see a little heartbeat!!!!:-) the midwife was very happy with the scan....only hitch is they found traces of blood in my urine...so dont know where its coming from they think its a uti and maybe thats where all the cramping is coming from??? Got antibiotic for it but really hate hving to take them in case they do something...so something else to worry about! Not back for another scan now till december near 12 weeks so my head will be wrecked waiting! But at least for today little baba is fine & happy. How are u?? X

katesav87 Fri 09-Nov-12 17:57:29

Aww I'm so so pleased for u!!! See I think this one is a keeper!! Was thinking of u all day. Hope the uti clears up my friend had them the whole way through her pregnancy and took the medicine and her bubs is all fine. Know wat u mean tho I take my anti sickness and get worried but I took them with DD and she came out fine. So how far gone are you now? Hope ur 12 weeks come round quick xxxx

MrFranklyShankly Sun 11-Nov-12 15:49:53

MrFranklyShankly Mon 12-Nov-12 18:50:16

Hi kate well hving a real up and dwn few days of it...still bleeding heavily but hd a scan again this morn at the epu they were really lovely to me i was in a rite state...scan showed a gd strong hb and they culdnt tell where the bleeding coming from so its not from around baba or anywhere in the womb so thats a relief..they did another hormone test on me so waiting for them to ring me with that....my symptoms hve really eases off so thats worrying me....just hve to wait and see....still bleeding which is v scary everytime i go to the loo...but they said some women just hve bleeds and go on to full term so im hoping thats the case fingers crossed....im emotionally wrecked...thats me on bed rest now for a while....how r you keeping? Frankly x

katesav87 Mon 12-Nov-12 19:12:34

Aww frankly I'm glad they saw a strong heartbeat. How worrying for u tho. It's just not far that some ladies get bleeding and so strange they can't see we're its coming from I have heard so many ppl say they have suffered bleeding in pregnancy. It's so common now a days!! Yes bed rest is defo needed for u!! Lots of tlc and looking after aswell. I really feel for u I would be the same a right state! I do think this one is a stinky baby tho I just think its going to keep u on ur toes!!! Am thinking of u. I'm ok my emotions r everywhere. I am seriously stressed and feel like I'm going to have a nervous breakdown I'm horrendously tired. Weeing like a racecourse which means little sleep DD is having nightmares so up constanley I'm the night! Work is stressful as well lol. Just one of those times were u feel like everything is out to get u. But to put it in to perspective I'm not going through wat u r so I should count myself lucky just can't stop being miserable. Xxx

katesav87 Tue 13-Nov-12 07:08:38

Morning F did u get ur hormone results? Xxx

MrFranklyShankly Tue 13-Nov-12 10:47:44

Hi kate no word on my hormone test yet results not in yet :-( im terrifed they will tell me its decreasing instead of going up...but had morn sickness this morn actually threw up so yeeeah !!!! I know ur emitions be all over the place and i do get the same stressed out but its hard work being pg looking after ur dd and trying to keep work happy....just be kind to yourself and everything else will sort itself out...in bed at the mo making the most of dds being at school! Thankfuly bleeding has stopped too so fingers crossed....Fx

katesav87 Tue 13-Nov-12 13:26:36

Glad ur in bed!! I'm in bed to have thrown up 7 times since 7 this morning feeling so rough anti sickness has not worked this time thrown all 3 tablets back up. Don't know wether it's a stomach bug or sickness from pregnancy. Seriously it's never ending with me. I can't move with out throwing up. Got an docs appointment tonight see wat they say. N e way enough about me. Glad u got sickness this morning. I really have a good feeling about this uve seen the heartbeat twice I think it's going to be ok. Just hope they find the cause of the bleed so u can rest ur mind a little!! Not fair on ur anxiety!! Fingers crossed ur 12 weeks comes around quickly!!! Im 12 weeks tomorrow finally got my scan Friday again. Still nervous but if something's happened then I can't do n e thing about it. I feel very attached to this bubs already tho so pray to god it hasn't. I have my doppler and I use it in morning and at bed. So scared I'm going go harm baby but just can't stop it really realeaves my anxiety. Xxxxx

MrFranklyShankly Tue 13-Nov-12 13:45:02

Aw god kate that must feel awful i hate the feeling of nausea never mind throwing up u poor pet....it culd be a bug my dd1 was sent home from school a while ago shes feeling rotten with a sore tummy feeling sick....so much for my quiet morn! The poor pet is lying up now looking as pale as me. Thats fantastic u've reached the 12 wk mark i wuld say things will be fine with baba kate and u wont do any harm with the doppler it lowers ur anxiety and thats gd for baba...my nxt scan feels like a lifetime away. Really hope u get sorted at the drs hve u tried the sickness bands??? A lot of people swear by them....

katesav87 Tue 13-Nov-12 18:54:36

Hi f on my way to hospital am severely dehydrated so ketones in my urine doctor straight on the phone to gynaecologist and now on my way for I presume is a drip shouldn't be scared but am whole body aches xxx

DaisyChain848 Tue 13-Nov-12 20:32:53

I haven't tested to see if i am pregnant yet (did post but had no replies) I have worked out that if i am i would be around the 9 weeks mark. I have been getting the same feeling you have described...Sometimes it feels like a bubbly feeling and it is a very bizarre feeling. I hope you have found out what it it is and that your pregnancy is on track for a healthy and beautiful baby smile
All the best xxxxxxx

MrFranklyShankly Tue 13-Nov-12 22:07:50

Oh kate you poor thing...good thing they are sending u in for the drip you will feel a lot better after being on it for a while...hope all goes well for you...thinking on you...let me know how u are when ur feeling up to it...take care. F xxx

katesav87 Wed 14-Nov-12 16:12:38

Hi daisy. I would test we have no clue wat this tingling is. I've never got it before I was pregnant so maybe a sympton. Good luck!!
Frankly I didn't have to stay In thank god they put me on a drip and sent me home at about midnight! I was glad as hate staying in. I have t been sick today but feel really sick and run down my poor DD has been negated after school so I can lay down. Feel so bad for her playing by herself. Having trouble with work aswell had so much time off and now get a text from my boss saying we need to discuss ur hours and wat job u do wen ur here :-( I really don't want to be moves. So upset. Just wish one thing would go right. How r u? Xxx

MrFranklyShankly Wed 14-Nov-12 17:08:35

Hi kate glad to hear ur home and not throwing up...god ur hving a time of it u culd really do without that stress from ur work too.. Do they know ur pg?? Mite be worth just saying to ur boss...u need to just get urself well enuf again to be able to takecare of urself and ur family...ohhh ur Dd sounds far from neglected my 2 r the same at the mo im just too wrecked to do anything....well i feel awful today im feeling sooo cold and dizzy and generlly sick! Actually thinking why am i putting myself and dh thru this...maybe i shuld hve given myself longer after the mc....i just feel so down and miserable..and guilty for thinking this way....maybe its just the hormones! Wuld like it to be all ovet and just hve baba home safe & sound, if that makes any sense. F xx

katesav87 Wed 14-Nov-12 17:29:07

Yes they know I am pg. my boss is not very good at being professional. I totally understand how u feel. I feel the same tonight! I'm down and miserable and also feel like y am I doing this again which upsets me. Cos I really wanted this baby, but now I'm scared I'm not feeling the way I should do I really hope it's the hormones and although Im sorry ur feeling that way I feel some comfort u feel the same. Maybe it's normal to feel this way. I hope u feel better soon ur really having a rough time to, it's really not fair is it. Xxx

MrFranklyShankly Thu 15-Nov-12 15:51:34

Hi kate how r u feeling 2day hun??? Are you feeling any better? I was talking to dh lastnite and was explaining how i was feeling and he told me i was exactly the same when i was pg wit dd2! That i was really down for most of the pg and there was me thinking i was all glowy and happy bck then i must be thinking with my rose tinted specs on so its totally normal for us to be feeling like this...the sickness (and u've hd it really bad) doesnt help its hard to be sunny when u feel so crap! So we're totally normal and knowing that has actually cheered me up! God ive been pure green today threw up twice this morn and im due bck to work on mon dont know how ill survive it:-( cant believe ur boss is being so insenseative to u esp at the mo...if ur dr has put u off theres really nothing they can do im sure i wuld just try and put it out of ur mind for now.. Whens ur nxt scan? I watched one born lastnite i ws avoiding all those type of shows but to be honest i think the fact im trying to distance myself from this pg in case something goes wrong is making me so miserable that im just goin to embrace it now no matter what happens...seeing the little newborns just melted my heart so much i just really want this to be real now...anyway hope ur ok kate...better gi ive written a book here!!! With very bad spelling no doubt!!! F xxx

katesav87 Thu 15-Nov-12 18:09:44

Hey f I'm alot better today back to just nausea tiredness etc. heart burns here and also headaches lol. Oh wat fun we have to go through really think i am going to have a bad pregnancy!!! I do think its normal I was speaking to my friend who's pg and she said that she felt the same about now! How's the bleeding? Hope it's carmed down!! Sickness is good signs :-) yes I'm trying to embrace it now. I think it's sort if hit me that I'm going to have kids instead if just my DD. scary!!! Spoke to my boss today all sorted think he shouldn't of sent me a text but he ment it in he didn't want me to be stressed about work I tend to over react at things unfortunately!! Lol scan is tomorrow at 2:05 nervous but wat will be will be. Xxxx

MrFranklyShankly Thu 15-Nov-12 21:35:25

Yeah it is a scary prospect alright....i think thats what is kinda scaring me & dh a bit too our dds are at a nice stage now and we've hd a tough few yrs wit money etc like everyone i suppose so now the girls are at school and we hve a bit of a life im thinking ohhhhh wat r we doing...but they're sooo worth all the hard work when u see their little faces all happy to see u....im glad uve sorted things with ur boss too takes away some of the worry....well the best of luck tomorrow really hope everything goes okay i hve a really gd feeling everything will be just fine and little bubs will be waving out at yas:-) will keep ething crossed for ya let me know how ya get on....F xxx

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

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


katesav87 Thu 17-Jan-13 18:38:14

Hey god we r the same haha. Everyone keeps saying oh ur bumps small bla bla bla and I wake up in the morning and think I don't even look pregnant!! I totally get wat u mean about worried if it is movement or not. I never wanted to tell n e one I thought I could feel something incase I had lost him at the next scan how werid is that I still think oh is that him but I know it is as its abit stronger now. So please don't feel alone as I am right there with u I feel totally the same. I've had a totally meltdown today shouted at my dd this morning went to work miserable then made myself look like an idoit to my boss and my friends at work cut a long story short but cos of the snow tomorrow they've given work mobiles to the ppl that live the furthest away and I mean I don't live close either but closer than them and asked them to work from home and asked the 2 pregnant ppl in the team to phone in the morning and potentially come in and if it gets worse drive home in it. Am I over reacting or is there no logic in that. So they have let the none pregnant ppl work at home but the pregnant ppl that can actually get on at home aswell have to try get it. I'm so angry with them all!! Set a bit of a angry message to my boss and a friend at work telling them I felt they couldn't trust me to work from home etc. and now I feel awful for doing it and even more upset and anxious. I know I'm over reacting but I'm fed up of being left out at work. They know how bad my anxiety is!!! N e way sorry to rant on. Not long till ur 20 week scan now how exciting r u going to find out? Xxxx

MrFranklyShankly Fri 18-Jan-13 20:08:17

Hi kate how did today go? Cant believe ur work expected u to go in the weather your hving is awful and dangerous to be travelling in at the best of times never mind when pregnant...if we get anything like that i will def be staying put! My anxiety had calmed dwn a bit 2day i just finding the wait till my 20 week scan really long hve another 5 weeks:-( i dont think ill find out, dh really doesnt want to know and if i find out alone there isnt a hope id be able to keep it quiet lol...i hve a feeling it will be another girl and i wuld be over the moon about that, i hve no sisters so id love a house of girls :-) people at work tho really annoy me keep saying hopefully this will be your boy then u wont hve to hve any more...which is really hurtful...i just want a baby...if only they knew the worry.....hope you got on okay today and ended up tucked up nice and warm at home...thanks for the reassurance. F xxx

How many weeks r u now? Is baby moving more now?? Wen are you due?? Good to hear from u:-) f xxx

katesav87 Wed 13-Feb-13 21:10:51

Aww yay 20 weeks so exciting!!! I was excately the same about movements it's only been the past few weeks that he's really started rolling and kicking around!! I spoke to my midwife and she wasnt worried. All my movements were low down until last week I was so worried! But they reassurances me everything was ok and wen I went for my 20 week scan he was right low down so that's prob y. Don't worry I bet ur scan is fab! R u finding out wat u r having? I'm 25 weeks now. Due 27th may! Feels like its taking forever! Wen r u due xxxx

MrFranklyShankly Wed 13-Feb-13 21:51:30

awww 25 weeks its gd to get the weeks ticked off yeah it does feel like forever...im due 27th june!!! Well thats the date they told me last scan...it culd change and chances r ill go over a bit did with my dds...but like that kate ill be glad to get to the end! Dont think ill find out dh doesnt want to so ill see...so glad to hear the movements are normal does feel like baba is low down think i just want to be further on so want to be at that point where im getting my ribs kicked for reassurance to know he/she okay....xxx

katesav87 Thu 14-Feb-13 13:31:00

Yea seems like a life time away. Just want to meet him now and stop worrying about if he's ok in there. Yea kicks r higher now but that's only just happened. Ask we're ur placenta is in ur 20 week scan it may be at the front so that's why u can't feel it as much although mines at the back and I couldn't feel alot. How's the bump growing? I kept getting comments like oh ur so small but there not so much now a days as he seems to of popped out about. Saw my midwife yesterday and all was measuring correctly xxxz

MrFranklyShankly Mon 18-Feb-13 20:46:04

Hi kate how r u and ur little man doin? Well i hve my 20 week scan tomorrow...and im just so nervous...the movements hve def picked up in the last few days but r still very low feeling...yeah my gp thinks my placenta culd be low and maybe to the front but ill find out 2morrow...just hope baba is doin okay...starting to hve heartburn which is yuck but glad to be hvin the normal pg things if that makes sense! Well my 'bump' is very funny looking its very flat where baba is at the bottom and then like a bump at the top which isnt actually baby....i wish people wuld think b4 they make comments....id never make any comments to non pg women on their shape or pg women so why do they think its open season wen the see a pg women it really annoys me.. Anyway hope ur gd ill let u know how i get on fingers crossed. Fxxx

katesav87 Mon 18-Feb-13 21:01:14

Hey f!! Good luck for tomorrow although u won't need it everything with bubs will be great :-) me and little man r good. Still anxious about loosing him but think I won't stop being like I am until he's here in my arms!! I hate heartburn it's so horrid isn't it!! But as u say it reminds me that I'm pregnant except for my bump lol. I agree I don't know y ppl feel the need to make comments that hurt u they just don't think! Can't wait to hear tomorrow all about ur scan xxx

katesav87 Tue 19-Feb-13 17:54:20

Hey how did ur scan go today xxxx

MrFranklyShankly Tue 19-Feb-13 20:39:44

Hi kate well scan went really well :-)!!! Was sooo happy to see baby bouncing around the place! We got to watch her/him moving around for ages so was really happy & relieved.....so bck in another 10 weeks!! Funny since the scan hve been feeling a gd bit of movement... They said the placenta was well up and i shuld start to feel more movement soon...how r you both doing?? F xxx

katesav87 Wed 20-Feb-13 08:10:04

Fab!!! So glad it all went well and u get a surprise to!! :-) I wonder wether it's a girl or boy. Glad ur feeling abit more now. Dunno whether I've got used to my movements or its cos I'm so busy but feel like he's a lazy baby dosent move that much. Also started feeling like I can't breath properly this last couple of days like heart palpitations don't know if its were I'm tired and over doing it and its my anxiety but will ask the midwife I think wen I see her. Do u get another scan in 10 weeks then?? Xx

MrFranklyShankly Wed 13-Mar-13 09:54:33

Hey Kate,

How are you and your little man getting on??? How have you been keeping??? Well I'm currently off work.....I have high blood pressure and have been in bits with headaches for the last few weeks, so they signed me off, think it could be due to stress at work, been having a hard few weeks so I'm glad to be off to be honest, just to get some rest.....was with the doctor again yesterday and the bp is starting to come down so thats a good sign and the headaches are easing off.....but I got such a shock when they told me my bp was high, of course that set of a whole new set of worries! So I'm 24 weeks now, I have the next scan at the end of April and it seems like a life time away.....getting some movement Usually baba is really active at about 5 int he morn, which is typical! But it still is quite low and not that frequent, but I'm just hoping that is all normal.......so how about you Kate??? How many weeks are you now?? Your in the last hurdle of it anyway, last trimester?? I'd say you just cant wait until May.....well I hope your keeping well. Frankly xxx

katesav87 Wed 13-Mar-13 11:48:55

Hey f! Great to hear from u! Sounds like uve had a tough few weeks bless u I bet u were shocked ur bp was so high. Glad they signed u off and it's starting to go down now. U take as long as u need urs and baby's health is more important! Glad baby's moving now :-) I was still low movements untill about 26 weeks now he's low and high all the time he's really making up for lost time hehe. I'm 29 weeks now! 11 weeks to go hopefully feels like forever away tho I'm good tho. Got all the usual horrendous heartburn can't sleep any more sciatica and pain in my pelvis but I can't complain it could be worse. My daughters not been well last few days so sleep has been bad feeling it today. Wen is ur next scan ur lucky u get another one. Bet u can't wait only another 16 weeks for u can't believe we have come this far!! How's the bump growing? Kate xxx

MrFranklyShankly Thu 14-Mar-13 15:59:11

Hi again Kate, yeah I have to say I was a bit taken aback when they told me my bp was high, I suppose theres no real signs that it is high, and I think then after I told them about my headaches being quite bad for over a week, scared me a little.....but no wonder it was high really when I think how stressed out I've been with work etc.....so the rest has def helped it come down....cant believe your now 29 weeks...its soo good to be notching up the weeks, and 11 left, it'll be great once you get into single figures! Yeah pregnancy isnt easy what with heartburn (i dont have it too bad this time touch wood!) and the sciatica & pelvis pain isnt nice at all, I have a touch of sciatica in the morning when I get out of bed, takes a while for me to be able to walk right....ohh theres no hiding my bump now to be fair, Its really noticeable! although I'm sure a lot of it isnt baby, and is just lack of exercise and eating!!! What about you, hows your bump coming along?? and I'm starting to waddle around like a penguin!!! So soon! but like that I'm not complaining as long as baba is okay......your poor DD, hope she's okay, its hard going when they're sick and your not pregnant, not getting your proper sleep and then trying to carry on the daily grind is hard...can you finish up work early? or will you be working up to near the end?

Well I'm really enjoying being at home this last while with the kids and just being able to take it easy....I'm back to the stress again on Tuesday but I'll def be taking it down a gear...

Glad all is good with you. chat to you soon.

Frankly xxx

katesav87 Thu 14-Mar-13 20:49:52

Bumps growing big to and he's moves all day everyday now. It's like one extreme to the next hehe. It's fine tho I can't complain. U take it easy wen u go back to work!! I've got 5 weeks left at work I'm determined to stay till then but it's been really busy recentely so it's getting harder plus I do some beauty treatments on the side of my main job so need to cut down on those so I can rest more. U just keep going tho don't u! Hope to hear from u soon

samsmother Sat 18-May-13 23:22:15

Congratulations on the birth of your baby boy Kate. Good luck for your birth MrFrankly, my ds came unexpectedly at 36w so fingers crossed you won't have much longer to wait X

MrFranklyShankly Wed 22-May-13 10:26:38

Hey Kate hope you and ds are getting on okay. I know ur prob up to your eyes with nite feeds and nappies but all worth it. Can't wait to get to that point. I'm still waddling around, not sleeping, and the general joys of late pregnancy! Just hope it's not too long now! Oh Sam that would be great to go at 36w Especially as I keep being told this baba is big! Am well ready now to meet him/her. How is your dd taking to her little bro Kate?? Well I hope all is going well. Will be in touch. Fxxx

katesav87 Wed 22-May-13 11:31:48

Thank u Sam he is gorgeus!! Hey f can't believe he is a week old today it's gone soooo quick!! Just been to get him registered he's a good baby actually only up once a night but does have his crying stage at about 11 for an hour or so. Just getting used to the lack of sleep but it's so worth it he is adorable and has changed so much already. Got abit of the baby blues coming in now and had abit of a panic attack last night which I haven't had for ages. I feel so bonded with him but I'm more worried about going back to having anxiety attacks and it sounds silly but I really wanted him to come but all the excitement of knowing wen he's come and wat he looks like has gone and feel sad that it has gone but I've got to try and think now I get the excitement of watching both my children grow up as I'm so lucky to have them and my wonderful DH. DD is getting on well with DS she has been spoilt tho bless her. Hope u r well. Fingers crossed ur little one comes soon can't wait to hear. Kate x

MrFranklyShankly Wed 12-Jun-13 22:16:51

Hey Kate how r you all getting on?? How's your ds getting on? How many weeks is he now? Well I'm still sitting pretty!!! No sign of any movement...I'm 38 weeks now so hoping something will happen soon. Getting really uncomfortable now and just want it all over and see baba to make sure all is okay....had a scan y'terday and baby is measuring 40 weeks so could be big am getting a bit nervous too....but all I can do is wait...bp is high again too so had a very emotional evening yesterday I'm all over the place. Hope the panic attacks have stayed away for you I get them too usually when I'm really over tired or high on emotion, I know how horrible they are so hope all is good with you. Chat soon. F xxx

katesav87 Thu 13-Jun-13 06:04:16

Hey f. Kept checking to see if u had baby yet!! Not long to go now tho I hope bubs comes soon!! My little man is 4 weeks now. It's crazy how quick it's gone. He's changed so much and is getting so big. I just want to keep him as a baby. He slept from 10:30 until 5:30 last night for the first time so I'm happy :-). As for me I'm feeling alot betterin myself! Bad thoughts have gone and feel like I'm so bonded with him! Geting the odd panic attack feeling dizzy etc but I think that's through tiredness!
R they monitoring ur bp? Good u got another scan hopefully babys not to big for u! We're ur others big baby's? How u feeling in urself? Xx

MrFranklyShankly Thu 13-Jun-13 09:26:31

Oh that's great Kate he sounds like a wee pet I know what you mean they grow sooo quick I love them at that baby stage they're so gorgeous, and good your getting some sleep too that always helps. I have to see the gp this morn again to get the bp checked I have protein in my urine too so I hope it's not something nasty going on....I feel okay...feeling a bit apprehensive about what's ahead and it's only really hitting me now I'll have to look after 2 children and a newborn over the summer...hope I can cope I know dh will be here but when he's at work I just hoe ill be able to cope!!! But I'm sure my hormones are just on the loose making me feel like this...just want to see baba now. Well I'm glad your doing good Kate and I will keep ya posted. :-) f xxx
