Well the tooth saga continues...flared up really badly and I asked for it to be pulled. Went today and a twenty min appointment turned into an hour and fifteen...lots of tugging, slicing and cracking and she couldn't get the whole thing. Ended up with stitches and the bruises on my face from her fingers ate evident already. The throbbing pain has been replaced with a general overall pain wahhh!

HadALittleFaithBaby Fri 14-Jun-13 22:00:53

Ok not list removals noted.

Ouch pinky are you painkillers up as much as you can be?

I had a bit of a meltdown today but after a row then chat with MSB we are ok. He's going to have Faithlet for a while tomorrow so I get some time out. I also had a bath for the first time in weeks. Lush! smile

pinkr Sat 15-Jun-13 01:28:51

Yeah all the paracetamol I can take! Had a rare cry on Mr df when I got home..actually think it was a bit of shock as my legs gave way when I first tried to get up.
That's good you're getting some you time faith...I think men probably just don't fully get it sometimes and need gentle reminding grin

HadALittleFaithBaby Sat 15-Jun-13 08:21:09

pink if its bad you could take co-codamol for a day or two. Take the edge off.

jeffers how you doing?

Any signs of Nokkie venturing in?

pinkr Sat 15-Jun-13 10:57:17

Tis quiet round here! I'm ok at the min as the stitches are on the gun so not moving etc....soft food all round! I'm still waiting on my anniversary dinner bit we've now decided that we're having a night in York and one in Northumbria on the way down so we'll eat and enjoy then!

FriendofDorothy Wed 19-Jun-13 10:35:55

Very quiet in here innit?

This week I have discovered that being ill with a baby is hard and preparing to go back to work is hard hmm

pinkr Wed 19-Jun-13 21:17:36

Oh dor hope you're feeling better. Can't believe that's six months either....I can't believe I'm stopping work next thurs. Kudos to anyone who works anywhere near due the moment I alternate between sitting at my desk, nearly sleeping, or ending round the classroom and sitting on a kids desk nearly sleeping. I feel fine and can do aqua classes etc but I really am finding work hard going..

pinkr Thu 20-Jun-13 14:57:44

Well the dental saga continues...apparently I now have an agonising condition called dry socket which seems to be inflammation down to the bone...cue removal of stitches, flushing and packing all without pain say I was writhing around would be an understatement. I'm getting very ducking depressed with all this ..

MsJupiterJones Sat 22-Jun-13 16:29:34

You poor thing pinkr. Teeth are the fucking pits. I kept forgetting to clean my teeth after L was born (blush in my defence the days and nights were v confused!) and got an abscess when he was 3wks old, no fun at all. Many sympathies to you thanks

We need evolution to come up with a better solution fast!

pinkr Sat 22-Jun-13 18:22:10

Thanks! Still ongoing...apparently it could take Weeks for the hole to close but I'm hoping not! teeth suck Haha

pinkr Wed 26-Jun-13 21:56:27

Quiet round here! Ho hum!

fertilityFTW Fri 28-Jun-13 11:06:00

I lost this thread blush - does seem quiet though...


Read this the other day - what do we think? I have to admit I thought those stats were legit.

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Fri 28-Jun-13 17:01:59

Hello PESH grin

Just marking my place until I feel brave enough to settle in!

pinkr Fri 28-Jun-13 17:47:29

Oh frank so very glad to see you! I haven't been lurking on the besh for a while so i've obviously missed news! !

FriendofDorothy Fri 28-Jun-13 17:53:24

Franks lovely to see you here smile

Pop in whenever you feel ready x

MsJupiterJones Fri 28-Jun-13 20:49:31

Well done Frank! Many congratulations.

It always amazes me how articles on fertility seem to think women are solely responsible for having babies. Like that recent Kate Garraway shit.

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Fri 28-Jun-13 20:54:46

Quick question for you PESH: I went to my GP surgery during lunch to ask about when I should make a booking an appointment. They told me they don't handle them anymore and I need to contact the midwife unit direct. Is that normal nowadays?

They gave me the details plus one of those Bounty Packs with my forms to fill in, so I'll have a look at those. Is the Bounty thing worth signing up for, or is it an excuse to send me tons of junk emails?

MsJupiterJones Fri 28-Jun-13 22:05:55

It varies but calling the mw unit direct is often more reliable - my sister chased her appt up at 12 wks and found they had no record of her.

Bounty is not v popular on MN and the packs are not that amazing but worth it for the mini sudocrem IMHO. Just be careful to tick the boxes about not wanting info passed on. I have a separate email add for mailing lists, it used to be full of theatre stuff but is now mostly nappies and small shoes.

FriendofDorothy Fri 28-Jun-13 22:06:01

I have no idea Franks - things are done really differently in Guernsey. Hopefully someone will be along soon to help you out.

Did you work out when you reckon your due date will be?

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Fri 28-Jun-13 22:08:59

I've seen the stuff about Bounty in post-natal wards and it is very off putting. I shall ponder on that one.

According to FF my due date is 4th March.

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Sun 30-Jun-13 19:14:27

Ok PESH, so much for the lurking! Is it normal for tiredness to be kicking in this early? I am knackered today - had a good 9 hours sleep last night but am knackered today, plus I've got next to no appetite - not sick, just not hungry.

FriendofDorothy Sun 30-Jun-13 23:05:58

Perfectly normal. I slept forever I. The early stages if my pregnancy.

pinkr Mon 01-Jul-13 07:51:43

Yeah that's exactly how I felt at xmas...we were staying at the inlaws and I was heading to bed earlier each night. I wasn't sick then bit I really didn't fancy any food...Mr df would cook something after I said I'd like it and by the time it arrived I couldn't touch it!

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Mon 01-Jul-13 07:59:28

Thanks PESH, I was starting to think I was going a bit mad. Particularly when HWHNN said "It's a bit early on, are you sure you are not imagining it?" hmm

Is there a list anywhere (barring the OP) so I know when everyone is due? Won't be adding myself just yet though.

MsJupiterJones Mon 01-Jul-13 08:53:36

First trimester is hardest in many ways; you feel tired and sick but no bump and no-one knows so you feel it's unjustified. But your body is doing amazing things in there and your hormones are going crazy.

I imagine after the build up you are probably quite emotionally exhausted too. Just go easy on yourself and take as much rest as you can.
