My two know we are trying to have a baby JeewizzJen and I talked to them about coming to the scan when there is a baby but that there could be bad news. Ds1 (7) asked if that was like his friends mum (she lost her baby at 16 weeks earlier in the year) but said that he'd like to come. Ds2 (almost 4) said he doesn't like babies and so doesn't want to see it . As the letter says I can take my children I think we will.
I'm holding off telling my DD who is 3 whats going on. Because when we caught the first time we weren't very careful what we said around her and she told her great grandma that mummy was growing a baby. Luckily I managed to laugh it off and say we were trying to grow a baby. I'm not sure she believed me but that one ended up a mc anyway. So lessons were learned not to say the words baby and mummy's tummy within her earshot. Seems to be ok talking about it if you slip bits in conversation as she doesn't really listen if your talking about boring mummy daddy things. Think I'm going to try and leave it till I'm at least showing so she has something visual to help understand.
I did keep taking them for a couple of weeks lurker but haven't for a while now. The sore boobs, nausea, spots, constipation, needing to pee 500 times a day etc is enough to remind me
Had my booking in appointment today..went well. I've been referred to the consultant for a couple of things (family history of CHD etc) but think it'll be fine, I'll still likely end up mw led. They have me at 9+1 and due 7th April but we'll see at scan..I'm sure I'm right with 17th April ha she said I'll get my scan date through the post shortly. I literally cannot wait. I'm dying to get excited and tell everyone..at the moment I still can't believe there's a baby in there?!
I'm jealous of everyone going home to snuggle up soon! I've just started work half an hour ago..roll on midnight..!
BananaToast I'd forgotten that Bake Off is on tonight, exciting!
I've just arrived home to find all my info for my first midwife appointment. There was also a lengthy booklet on all the screening tests that they do, which has made me pretty anxious. Turns out there are so many things I just hadn't got rounds to worrying about yet!
Try not to worry about that JaneyTea, the way I see it you're better off knowing and being able to plan or treat any problem. My midwife told me on the phone nothing has changed since I had ds2 and there didn't seem to be a huge amount to me anyway.
We have a groupon that has to be used mon, wed or thurs before 6th sept so we're going out tonight and will have to watch bake off on iplayer . Missed most of last weeks, literally turned on to see Ian present his bin and then heard all about it so didn't really need to watch! But those baked alaskas were bloody impressive I have to say.
I've actually felt better this week back at work, perhaps I'm just not a lay about relaxing kind of person!! Not looking forward to tomorrow, ds1 is going in to year 3 and has a new far too grown up uniform and ds1 is starting nursery (uniform is optional but he wants it) I love having my babies home. Dh keeps saying it doesn't matter now you're having a new baby, well yes it does my current babies are ever growing and I can't believe the little one will be 4 in 10 days
Aaaah something a bit weird is happening and I don't know how to feel! My mum is 48, she had my sister and I when she was 16&18, my dad and her divorced when I was about 4, had a really tough time as a single mum but now, she is really happy and has been with her partner for 9 years.
He doesn't have children and she told me a couple of weeks ago that they are going to try and have a baby! She's been for all of the tests today and has been given the green light with a 20% chance of success.
I've told her I'm happy for her but I also feel really weird about it and I think a bit upset. My DH and I got married in December last year, he's in the navy and hardly ever around, now I'm pregnant and was really hoping I would have my mum around to support me, but that's going to be so difficult for her if she has a baby of her own? Sorry if I sound selfish, I really don't know how to feel.....
misty I think dopplers are genius. Was listening again for a hb today and heard one - you can't mistake it, it's like a train. Not 'whooshing' - that's placenta noise. I find it v relaxing to listen to blob's little heart going, I admire his/her ability to keep going while so wee!
