Well done Supa smile

Can't believe we filled a thread already!

supadupapupascupa Wed 15-Jun-11 11:55:46

we're either a very chatty lot, or there are so many of us because we all got a bit romantic in the run up to the royal wedding grin

i blame all the champagne, we conceived on the very day i think grin

GiraffeAHolic Wed 15-Jun-11 12:06:34

grin definitely one of the two!

My second line appeared as the Beckhams were entering the abbey smile

Afternoon smile

Cant belive the first thread is full, times flown by.

Conchita Wed 15-Jun-11 13:50:14

giraffe does that mean you have to call your LO 'Westminster', using Beckham baby-naming rules? I also found out on RW day, bank holidays are great for POAS!
Have a question, sorry if it's been covered before as I was a late joiner to the last thread... are any first-timers reading a preg book and would you recommend it? And is there anything- book, website- I can direct DH to? At the mo he is full of ill-informed opinions about what I we should do but won't actually gen up on anything, it's driving me up the wall!

supadupapupascupa Wed 15-Jun-11 13:57:25

ooh Conchita get a week be week book, absolutely brilliant! I also got a general book but never really used it tbh.

example

d0gFace Wed 15-Jun-11 13:57:26

I have this one:

www.amazon.co.uk/Your-Pregnancy-Bible-revised-expanded/dp/190476097X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1308142322&sr=8-1

It covers lots of things from conception to caring for your newborn. Lots of reviews on amazon as well to give you a better idea if the book is a good choice for you.

Looking forward to seeing any other recommendations esp on childbirth and breast feeding.

Weevie Wed 15-Jun-11 14:12:40

Hey everyone. We concieved on the Royal Wedding aswell.

It took me a while to find the first thread as I wrote a post the other day but i was in a rush and apparently it didnt actually post. Ahh well found it now.

I had my booking in appointment this morning. The midwife was having trouble with the computers but got there in the end. I have to ring the hospital later to make my scan (its my 12 week one but we are havign it at 10 weeks. Im entitled to a 9 week one but they cant fit me in then so they are doing one at 10 weeks instead.)

How is everyone doing? I have the constant feeling that im going to be sick all day but havent actually been sick yet. Other then that just the usual sore boobs. They have got a lot bigger, DH likes it but theyre too sore for him to go near hehe.

Conchita I have this book, www.waterstones.com/waterstonesweb/products/maggie+blott/the+day-by-day+pregnancy+book/6621007/ among many others (my sisters bought me another 6 from car boot sales) I think its fab, has great pictures aswell.

Hope everyone is doing well. Im off to get something to nibble on =)

Spagbolagain Wed 15-Jun-11 14:28:46

<peeps round door of thread>
<spots familiar faces, skips in with a crate of Becks Blue>

Hello all, thanks pupascupa for providing the new thread.
I have got the foulest taste in my mouth today. Like I have licked too many stamps. Whatever I eat, it's still there, and I've brushed my teeth about 4 times.
I am feeling cheerful today. DS has been in hospital for a couple of days having an operation, I found it a bit traumatic. But all seems to have been successful, and he's now full of beans again. Toddlers are amazing, they just nonce back so quickly; even in scary and horrible situations, they just get on with it.

conchita When I was PG with DS I got a book call "your pregnancy week by week" by Lesley Regan (she's a professor obs/gynae and mother of twins). I loved it, very sensible and lots of good pictures. I then got the follow up "your baby month by month" when he was born

Spagbolagain Wed 15-Jun-11 14:30:32

Obviously I wrote BOUNCE back, not nonce shock
stoopid iPad keyboard

Conchita Wed 15-Jun-11 14:43:36

thanks for all the recommendations weevie d0gface and spagbolagain - these all look just like the kind of thing I'm after: factual and not patronising. But DH will be delighted to know that 2 of them are by DK as he loves their travel books and buys one for everywhere we go! This could prove a winner for making him take an interest.
Spagbolagain glad to hear that DS is okay, and hope it was nothing too nasty. wish we could be as brave as toddlers!
But what would the News of the World say if they knew you'd written 'nonce' and 'toddlers' in the same sentence? shock

d0gFace Wed 15-Jun-11 15:04:32

I heard the daily mail are already investigating!

Glad you DS is well and happy.

Would anyone like to do my washing up and cook me some dinner?

fr00tbat Wed 15-Jun-11 15:58:25

Ooh, ginger cake and cheese- sounds amazing- have been living on nice n' spicy nik naks and peanut butter- nit been sick but bad indigestion and queasy first thing and after 1630 until i go to sleep- gaviscon makes no difference- list of inedible foods is getting longer and longer.......

supadupapupascupa Wed 15-Jun-11 16:03:59

can we have peanut butter fr00tbat? I am desperate for a peanut butter and jam sandwich but didn't think it was a good idea? DH has asthma.....

of to google

supadupapupascupa Wed 15-Jun-11 16:05:54

WOOHOOO the rules have changed since DS1

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

www.food.gov.uk/safereating/allergyintol/peanutspregnancy

supadupapupascupa Wed 15-Jun-11 16:07:27

btw ladies, rennies chewable tablets are fine in pregnancy and loads easier to take than gaviscon. Please try them.....

Spagbolagain Wed 15-Jun-11 16:44:19

Oh I would love some peanut butter on toast! but DH has severe nut allergy so don't have it in the house. Tis a guilty pleasure when I am at my mum's!
Nice n spicy niknaks sound very tempting too.

I have just finished cooking tonight's dinner <polishes halo>
we are having spagbol, AGAIN (haha, we do have other things occasionally) but I have made the healthy version with loads of peppers, carrots, tomatoes etc in it. DS probably now won't eat it grin

GiraffeAHolic Wed 15-Jun-11 17:11:22

Eurgh. Note to self - no matter how much you fancy chocolate, eating 6 Terry's AllGold in one go is not a good idea envyenvyenvy (<-- nausea not envy)

Conchita Wed 15-Jun-11 17:24:27

I thought you meant you had eaten 6 Terry's Chocolate Oranges in a row. impressive! Due to aforementioned gastroenteritis have been mostly living on lucozade and jelly babies. Now have bitten into a salted cracker and felt a big pain in my tooth. Hope I haven't knackered my molars on the sugar. Oh misery! Having a bad week. sad

SlightlyScrambled Wed 15-Jun-11 17:44:42

Hi everybody and welcome to the newly arrived.
I can't believe I'm posting again. I really thought there was no hope for the little bean - as per the midwife. But all is well. grin

I went in yesterday for a scan with the MW. She saw a fetus about 8-9 weeks but couldn't see a heartbeat. She asked me to come back in the afternoon for a doctor to scan me. Doctor could see an empty sac and told me I must have miscarried. That just didn't make sense as where had it gone in the 2 hours, had I sneezed it out?

So the confused MW advised me again about miscarrying and arranged for a internal scan in the hospital for this morning.

Low and behold, there was a 9w3d, heart beating, legs kicking, little bean.

I'm over the moon but exhausted emotionally. It was good though that I got the second opinion with a different sonographer and on a different machine.

Off to eat some cheddar and a Caramel bar. smile

Spagbolagain Wed 15-Jun-11 17:45:54

I convinced myself this week I had awful teeth problems. Turned out to be sinusitis. Who knew it made your teeth hurt?!
