Evening all. Knackered. Dh being a twit. He can be pregnant next time <grumble grumble>

8+3 with dc, jealous of those closer to the 12w mark, you can start to glooow and be energetic v soon instead of a slightly bloated, bread-munching, emotional mess

blush <- - glowy cheeks etc

Hello thread 3!

Pig does that really happen after 12 weeks? I can imagine ever feeling normal again after this.

SimileMilly Mon 07-Mar-16 22:18:45

Checking in! 10+1 - scan next Tuesday.

No 12 week glow last time, I just looked like death for 9 months...

31, expecting #1 on 10th Oct. 9+1 today.

From last thread:
I'm the same Lisa. No change in bra size yet, which I'm thankful for as I'm 34ff anyway. They do feel fuller somehow though, and my nips are constantly standing to attention!

Bluecarrot Tue 08-Mar-16 05:11:03

31, expected dc3 15-18th oct erm 8ish weeks.

Please someone advise on insomnia.
It takes hours to get over and then I wake a few hours later. Probably cause I need to pee. AGAIN.
I'm always exhausted though. Def didn't have this in previous pregnancies!

Must be time to get the pregnancy pillow out.

Haven't really noticed boob size change but still breastfeeding 2 yr old so they fluctuate anyway. They got huge last time, like k cup. Wouldn't mind if they stayed around j or smaller this time!

Morning everyone smile

Just checking in too; can't believe bits thread 3 already!

Age 36 #DC1 due date also 28th September! 10 weeks 6 days and definitely not glowing (although my nails are really long for once)! Scan is 23rd March, but also have a scan with NIPTY booked on Saturday and have already had two early scans (previous miscarriages - I'm
Not just greedy grin)!

Hope everyone is doing ok. I had an induction at a gym last night (I used to run outside but have been told not to until 16 weeks by midwife) it was at 8 at I left straight after it and did not do any exercise despite turning up in full workout gear! 8 is past my current bed time. The rest of the people on my induction must have thought I was mad...

Craftycakey15 Tue 08-Mar-16 06:20:12

Hi, I'm due on 28th October so 6w 4d. Doesn't feel yet. I too am suffering terrible insomnia and severe constipation., probably due to the Cycogest suppositories I am taking.

And is anyone getting nosebleeds already?! I had loads when I was pregnant with DD, but not this early on! And the inside of my nose just feels really sore, probably from wiping all the blood away hmm

Hi everyone haven't posted for a while:
Age :29
Dc#2 due 10th October

Currently 9+3 feeling awful . Just get progressively worse as the day goes on until I end up curled in a ball feeling so sick at around 8pm. Exhausted trying to work and look after ds 18 months . I am definitely more sick this time than last pregnancy . I remember starting to feel better around 14 weeks last time then I felt better than ever for the rest of my pregnancy praying for the same again this time please!

BigPigLittlePig Tue 08-Mar-16 07:18:49

Cheesecake erm last time not so much for me, but I cling to hope. Last time I had all day sickness from 3w to 16w. I lost so much weight I looked horrendous, and coupled with working ridiculous shifts up til the day dd was born (prematurely), I did not enjoy being pg. Get 3 extra scans later on this time round though which is nice. You can see hair on later scans and all sorts!
Anyway.
No boobs here, but went from A to E when bf last time.

Hi all, I have been lurking but too scared of jinxing my pregnancy to post until now, but temptation has got the better of me!

Stats: Age 34
#1 due date 24 Oct
7 weeks

Story: Newly wed, TTC since June 15. Fell pg in August however MMC at 8w which was discovered at 10w. Now pg again, and just taking each day as it comes.

Symptoms: I'm very lucky - not many. Just sore boobs, very tired, constipated, bloated, feeling slightly queasy at times. More queasy when tired, more tired when bunged up!

freshstart last pregnancy I had diarrhoea about 4 times a day whenever I ate. Apparently this can be a symptom, but less common.

Congratulations on your BFPs ladies!

Afreshstartplease Tue 08-Mar-16 08:02:13

Welcome Iris ! Fingers crossed for a healthy pregnancy for you!

Welcome & congrats Iris

Blue I also have insomnia - I can get to sleep OK (average bedtime at the mo is before 9pm!) but wake around 4am needing to wee and then no chance of more sleep. So I sympathise.

Feeling fed up today.
