Welcome to our new home! Right, time to get that baybee out lazy!

Second Dor on the itching. A friend had itching through her last trimester that drove her crazy but was nothing - however better to be on the safe side & get it checked.

blonderedhead Sun 10-Feb-13 10:31:45

Btw my nn is my original MN one, I really need a new one but can't decide. Faif yours is extreme! I am not used to you without a bit of Faith in there somewhere!

bluer Sun 10-Feb-13 12:41:26

How's everyone doing? ! Been sick again this morning...just as soon as I think hooray it's gone! Hah! Well is snowing here again and i'm having a couch day!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sun 10-Feb-13 15:32:25

Ok, I'm back to normal. Was meant to be temporary NC!

trueblue mine has never fully gone! I was sick twice this week confused. Less frequent though from about 14 weeks though smile

I got to cuddle a baybee today. He is luffly, all blonde hair and blue eyes! He's about 12 weeks old. Very strange to have him in my arms while Pickle kicked me from the inside smile She had a quiet day - course when I was miles from home! Was on the verge of getting attention when she finally started moving. Little monkey! Back to normal today.

I'm still a bit itchy but not as bad. If it continues, I'll go on the GP on Wednesday when I have a day off.

JethroTull Sun 10-Feb-13 15:41:53

Is it normal to be this tired??

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sun 10-Feb-13 15:52:42

So tired you just want to cry?! Yes. Very normal. I prescribe warm baths and early nights!

welcome jeffers

bluer Sun 10-Feb-13 15:52:43

Jeff I found I was absolutely shattered the first few Weeks...strangely I thought as I was off work for xmas and we weren't doing much. The tiredness hopefully goes eventually but i'm still sleeping loads. I have found going to aerobics helps strangely enough!

blonderedhead Sun 10-Feb-13 15:53:54

Totally normal. I had experienced nothing like it.

I'm not going to state the obvious though...

bluer Sun 10-Feb-13 15:54:36

Lots of baths faith for so long that mr df came in paniced after about an hour as it had finally occurred to him that I might has fallen asleep and downed!

FriendofDorothy Sun 10-Feb-13 16:09:51

I would get gone from work and sleep in the bath for at least 45 minutes every night! I was stupidly tired.

JethroTull Sun 10-Feb-13 16:38:37

I thought baths were Not Good until after 12 weeks? I've just been fast asleep for an hour on the sofa.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sun 10-Feb-13 16:43:16

Baths are fine as long as they're not too hot - sudden changes in temperature are bad for baybees.

I have just hung sone curtains. We bought them about 18 months ago (before the fire). I am not very good at hanging curtains confused Didn't help that I'd bought the right length but MSB put the rail as low as possible hmm I had to wonderment them to the right length! Ah well, they look good now!

JethroTull Sun 10-Feb-13 16:55:30

We bought new curtains for the spare room months ago. I put one up & then managed to pull the string out of the other one. Left it lying about thinking that I'd wrecked it & would have to buy a new pair. Came home last week & our amazing cleaner had hung it up. She said she was sick of looking at it!!

bluer Sun 10-Feb-13 17:05:50

I started off with baths that were lukewarm instead of my usual boiling but I quickly upped the temp when I realised it would unlikely be a problem...they're warm now but just not as hot as I used to!
Curtains...well a still have the boring curtains that the previous owners left in most rooms...I keep thinking we must change them but curtains arms so expensive!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sun 10-Feb-13 17:16:32

I couldn't find the end to some of string but cobbled it together.

JethroTull Sun 10-Feb-13 17:25:44

I'm petrified of Doing Anything Wrong. Being tired seems to be the one symptom I have. My boobs just feel 'different'. And I'm starving all the time grin

bluer Sun 10-Feb-13 17:36:30

Yeah the being scared thing is still with me too...I haven't died my hair and when another pregnant workmate was going on about still eating runny eggs I nearly cried with jealousy! I know the likelihoodof getting salmonella from a lion egg is really really slim but I just can't bring myself to do it.

bluer Sun 10-Feb-13 17:36:52

Or dyed my hair even..

FriendofDorothy Sun 10-Feb-13 21:49:02

I had baths all the way through. It was probably the only place I was truly comfortable.

I also are runny eggs. I love them and decided I couldn't live without them.

Silly eh?

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sun 10-Feb-13 21:57:07

I have been having baths, usually 3 times a week (MSB runs me baths for when I get home from work!) with no concerns. I had runny eggs this morning. The only eggs I have been extra cautiously well cooked were from my Aunty-in-law's chickens. I was fine.

Ok, I'm still mega itchy. Seems to be worse at night. Have slathered in cream and hoping it'll settle but I do think I might have to get this checked out confused. Also <tmi warning alert> my, ahem, fanjo is quite swollen. I had this after we did the sechs but this is spontaneous (no sechs been had for a while!). I'm going to try to sleep and ignore it all and hope it settles down.

blonderedhead Sun 10-Feb-13 21:58:02

My only bending of the rules was a runny egg or two.

JethroTull Sun 10-Feb-13 22:09:54

I had a fried egg sandwich last week <rebel>

I also forgot to take my progesterone tonight until now <irresponsible>

Faith itching limbs & swollen fanjo don't sound like a pleasant combination. Are you planning on seeing the doctor? Hope you get some sleep.

bluer Sun 10-Feb-13 23:16:53

Mmm seems like eggs may be on the cards after all! <mouth waters>

HavingALittleFaithBaby Mon 11-Feb-13 08:23:00

I think you need to exert realistic caution. Like I have avoided Brie etc but not too previous.

I'm now officially on clear fluids til 12 when I have my abdo ultrasound. I'm not really worried about it. The pain has never got as bad as when I was as admitted, although it has come and gone a few times. I've decided the itching is definitely worse at night which can be an indication of certain problems so I think I need to see the docs. Especially worse between my buzzwams?! Falling apart, aren't I?!

House needs a bit of tidying but I'll see how much time I've got before the scan/work once I've got up.

JustplainoldBuggerlugs Mon 11-Feb-13 17:58:51

<pokes head round door>

<enters with confidence>

This win WILL result in a baybee <determined>

Room for another?
