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

bluer Thu 14-Feb-13 21:31:08

Oh that's good faith! I had a truly crap sleep lay night..up at twelve, two, four and then awake and up at six. I'm a total crabit cow today!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 14-Feb-13 21:39:08

Is it just sleep not being forthcoming or your bladder blue? I read a tip on here that your bladder kind of goes into overdrive and while you may need to go once, actually it can hold it for the next couple of hours. Sometimes I just try to ignore it.

I have proper overdone it today. Cleaning hmm (always a bad idea), swimming and then did the sechs for the first time in a while My bump feels big and hard and I am getting low down pressure again. I got this pressure at work but not had it since doing the short shifts. Not too bad now I'm just sitting and scoffing chocolate but a bit disconcerting!

<waves to a lurking jeff>

bluer Thu 14-Feb-13 22:57:51

It's a but of both...the need to go wakes me but I've always had sleep issues. Once I wake my brain goes into overdrive and I am up anything from half hour to two hours. I'm actually much better now...when I was younger I would wake for three or four hours a night sometimes!
All the girls at work have developed proper bumps in the last few days it seems...I can't decide if I have a start or whether it's just bloated! smile

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 14-Feb-13 23:00:43

With the bump, I was insisting mine was just bloat/muffin top at 13 weeks, til I tried to suck it in and couldn't! smile

I've found Avon's pillow mist and using a maternity pillow both really helped with my sleep (I can have sleep trouble at times).

HavingALittleFaithBaby Fri 15-Feb-13 12:58:18

I am so mardy today! Jeepers, it's a good job I'm not around people much. The stereo dad bought for Christmas had broken. Not cheap at £80+ so I want it replaced. He says he gave us the receipt....I don't now where the receipt, box, manuals, anything relating to it are?! Desparately hoping they are all together in the loft but I have a horrible feeling we binned the box MSB won't let me go in the loft on my own so I have to wait til he comes home! Honestly I dunno what's the matter with me. I felt stroppy with the ruddy window cleaner!

Off to be needled in a min so hopefully I will calm down after that?!

bluer Fri 15-Feb-13 17:06:16

Oh what you getting needled for?
I've been Moody...having not been sick for a few Weeks this well has hit hard...four out of last five days. Is it strange I wonder or just coming and going normality?

HavingALittleFaithBaby Fri 15-Feb-13 18:23:04

My sickness was just the same. Every day for a few weeks, then eased, then would trigger off every few days. Even now I'm still sick probsbly once a week. Puked on Tuesday when I found a satsuma in my work lunch bag at work! envy

Needles are for the abdo pain I've had for nearly a year. I will summarise in case you don't know Basically last March I started with abdo and kidney pain all of a sudden. Had antibiotics, didn't help. Cautious GP thought it might be my appendix so admitted me. After 9 days of faffing surgeons they discharged me with a ?kidney stones/? Ascending UTI (so UTI that tracked to my kidney). After 6 weeks, it had improved and deteriorated again. I got a urology referral and the specialist side it's either a kidney stone that's stuck below my bladder or my urinary tract has narrowed - the kidney pain is basically extra pressure on my system. Western medicine approach is to stick a camera up there and either clear the kidney stone or pop a stent in to widen the gap. Sadly the op date came through for September and I got diffed in August. They're not keen on giving pregnant woman anaesthetics so I was told to keep taking the painkillers and wait for the op after the birth. The needles have helped to dial down the pain and I have cut down the painkillers smile I was a bit skeptical but it really has helped!

Still mardy but improving!

bluer Fri 15-Feb-13 18:55:35

Ah I see! I'm on for an early night...going bridesmaid dress shopping tomorrow! My dsis gets married in sept grin

HavingALittleFaithBaby Fri 15-Feb-13 19:24:21

Sleep well smile

bluer Sat 16-Feb-13 16:59:05

Got a gorgeous dress! At least it looked gorgeous in the size 14 I tried on....but we've ordered a 24! I know i'm a 12 at the moment and wedding stuff is always ordered bigger but I actually felt like crying haha. The other bridesmaid is a teeny tiny eight..i'm going to be a whale <sobs into hands,>
On an up note we looked at the cutest cutest little dresses and suits for newborns <beam>

FriendofDorothy Sat 16-Feb-13 18:56:25

Hurray we have moved house today. Moving with a 9 week old is quite trying!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sat 16-Feb-13 19:14:48

Aww blue you will be heavily pregnant! My wedding dress was a size 20 even though I'd lost weight and got into small size 14 stuff by the wedding!

Congratulations dor! It'll seem crazy initially I'm sure but how ace that you're finally in! grin

Well MSB got upset today that I was planning everything for the baybee and not including him hmm We had a (very minor compared to the old days) row til I explained I had no clue and was making it up as I went along! smile Think we're ok now. Not the best day - I thought I was on a late til work rang me at 7.20 to ask where I was! shock Wrote my off duty down wrong. Got in about 50 mins late and spent the rest of the day catching up. Yuck!

bluer Sat 16-Feb-13 21:03:11

Did I tell you i'm due 25 days before my sisters wedding? ! An unknown size quantity but i'm booked for fitting two days before wedding!
dor we moved three years ago and it was exhausting so I can only imaginewhat it must be like! !

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sat 16-Feb-13 21:23:32

Oh you'll have dropped! August due date <slaps forehead> I was thinking its a month before you were's been a long day <continues to feel sorry for self>

bluer Sat 16-Feb-13 22:02:31

Oh poor you <orders an early night>
Mrdf is not into talking baby stuff at the moment and it's nearly causing argument as I need to talk iyswim!

EuroShagmore Sun 17-Feb-13 13:38:05

Right, I'm going to be brave and dip a toe into the thread. I'm not ready for the list yet. Maybe if all is well at the 6 week scan. Gah.

JethroTull Sun 17-Feb-13 15:43:36

I feel exactly the same Euro! Our early scan is a week tomorrow. Can't come soon enough.

I'm exhausted. Just about to have a snooze. Again. That's it though for symptoms.

bluer Sun 17-Feb-13 16:04:06

Welcome <waves>
Jeff tired seems about right...i'm still in the process of napping sporadically and always feel tired. Still it's half term this week so lie in potential grin

EuroShagmore Sun 17-Feb-13 16:37:05

Exciting Jeff! I thought you were further ahead of me. My scan is a week on Thursday, all being well. My clinic does it at 6+1.

I'm not tired, but I have developed ridiculous insomnia. And ginorma boobs. KFZK looks like all his christmasses have come at one. The soreness comes and goes.

I'm peeing on sticks every other day (on the basis that HCG should double ever 48 hrs or so, so I should see a change) and they are getting darker, but I still don't quite believe it.

JethroTull Sun 17-Feb-13 16:45:50

Our scan will be 8 weeks. I find the weeks thing very confusing. So according to various sites tomorrow I am 7 weeks. But it's only been 5 weeks since EC so why 7 weeks?

I didn't really have boobs to begin (lucky to fit in a 32 A) with but they are looking slightly rounder!

Euro any sickness yet?

EuroShagmore Sun 17-Feb-13 18:38:36

The weeks thing is odd. If you use a digital test, it will say 2 weeks when your period is due, but the drs would say 4 weeks. I think it's so that if people don't know when ov/EC is, they can date it by the last period. Which is I guess what people have to do for years and still do in some cases. I think that makes you two and a half weeks ahead of me. I would be 5 weeks on Weds next week if I get that far.

I never had much in the way of boobage (storm in a B cup) but currently my cup runneth over! KFZK has always been a boob man, and I think finally he doesn't feel shortchanged!

No nausea yet. Because of my low HCG at my blood test, I would like more symptoms. But I vaguely remember my mum saying that she never got morning sickness. I would like to check with her, but I have decided not to tell her unless we get to 12 weeks. She has been really odd throughout all the infertility stuff, and if I were to tell her now, I think she would find the next weeks stressful as she had 3 mcs, so I have decided to leave it. I have sore boobs, insomnia and the pee sticks are getting darker, so I guess I should accept I am PUPO and try to stop worrying. Is it just tiredness for you?

JethroTull Sun 17-Feb-13 19:24:50

Tiredness, insomnia, sore boobs on & off and this morning I heaved when I was clearing up remains of last nights tea.

I want to be positive. But I almost feel like I will jinx it. I am so nervous all the time. I'm dreading going to the scan.

EuroShagmore Sun 17-Feb-13 20:53:36

I'm also terrified. I've only ever been to one pregnancy scan and that was one of my mum's when she found out she had mc'd, so I don't exactly have happy memories. I also think unless I qualify talking about it with "if this works out" or similar, I will jinx it. It must be so wonderful to be an instadiffer and to just be able to enjoy it. One day, in a moment of bravado, I added myself to the October AN thread and the positivity of some of the folks on there is just completely alien to me.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sun 17-Feb-13 21:01:38

My main symptom now is how very large I am hmm Seriously, there's a very hard bit near my belly button which is either a head...or an arse! smile
Mostly in the first trimester I was tired and emotional (I recall sobbing, proper belly sobbing at Gavin and Stacey!) and from about 5 weeks, muchos puking, but lots of people aren't sick. I know my sister wasn't!

The dates is confusing and tbh, a bit medical archiac (obviously thought up by a man). Your medical pregnancy dates are from your last droid. My GP actually gave me a due date that is now a full week later than my scan dates because he assumed I had a 28 day cycle hmm Obviously I only had a 26 day cycle and my dates put conception around CD11! Whereas you can know when you conceived to the day and that's what pregnancy tests will tell you. You're officially diffed for two weeks prior to conceiving. Make sense of that!

It's totally normal to not really trust or believe it. I think I held my breath til my 12 week scan.

blonderedhead Sun 17-Feb-13 21:20:18

Even in my email to staff I put: "all being well, I will be on maternity leave from October" - couldn't quite bring myself to say the words in case it made it all disappear. And that was at about 14 weeks.
