MrsWednesday Tue 09-Nov-04 15:01:24

Good plan Welshmum.

Sophmum Tue 09-Nov-04 15:10:06

Put this on both threads
Mrs Wednesday - sorry it happened to you. Did you lose it naturally or have d + c? I'm finding the worst thing is waiting, whilst still feeling and looking pg - I'm even in maternity clothes as my tummy's so big. Also, if you don't mind me asking, what did you do when you started to bleed? My GP said "observe" if it's light but I'll need to see someone at some point. I'm worried every time I go to the loo in case it's started.

Also, did you have pg symptoms all the way through? When I spoke to GP this morning he thought it a bit odd and said that the symptoms should have stopped when the pregnancy became inactive.

me too...

welshmum - would a tuesday be better for you?
scraggy - when would your next tuesday up here be?
sophmum - I had an early scan this time (as I've had previous ectopics) and at 7weeks they couldn't find the heartbeat on the normal scan, they had to do an internal scan to find it.

sweetheart Tue 09-Nov-04 15:15:40

crikey - I go away to do a bit of revising and you l ot go mad!!!!

Thread 2 already!!! How many do you think we'l have before we all start popping??? I guess about 1 a month!?!?!

Sophmum - so sorry to hear what your going through. Fingers crossed for you - I hope it all works out for the best.

sweetheart Tue 09-Nov-04 15:16:17


I'm just having a revision break to eat my cream cake!!!

sweetheart Tue 09-Nov-04 15:20:07

God, now I feel sick!!!!!!

That'll teach me - I must learn NOT to over indudge!!!!!

MrsWednesday Tue 09-Nov-04 15:21:00

(posted this on old thread too, sorry)

If I'm honest Sophmum, I don't think I had many symptoms all the way through. I started off feeling very sick but it stopped suddenly at about 7 weeks, never had sore boobs, only felt slightly tired. Which sounds very different from your situation doesn't it? Is there any possibility your dates could be out?

teabelly Tue 09-Nov-04 15:24:25

ooh cream cakes - you naughty girl! (I only say that coz I don't like if it had been chocolate cake that's another matter!!)

Scraggyaggy Tue 09-Nov-04 15:34:14

Tues 23rd suit anyone?

teabelly Tue 09-Nov-04 15:34:49

that's fine for me...welshmum?

Hi Everyone! I've been keeping an eye on the old June thread for a couple of weeks and have been dying to say hello, but not been able to because my computer couldn't handle such a BIG POPULAR PAGE! I've met a few of you already (including MrsW and Welshmum) on other threads though and hope to be able to share experiences with you all over the next 7 months or so. I've already found the people here extremely supportive and informative.

Poor you Sophmum, the waiting must be horrible and I hope very much you get good news at your next scan.

My eta is 16th June. It will be my very first baby.

teabelly Tue 09-Nov-04 15:44:21

charleypops, welcome, glad you could finally load us up!

Scraggyaggy Tue 09-Nov-04 15:44:49

Welcome Charleypops!

MrsWednesday Tue 09-Nov-04 15:49:04

Hello again Charleypops! Be prepared to talk enormous amounts about food and farts....

Scraggyaggy Tue 09-Nov-04 15:51:53

Hey, does anyone know where to buy some NICE underwear?? I've managed to get one bra and knicker set from Mothercare (which I hate going to as they've cornered the market).

teabelly Tue 09-Nov-04 15:53:12

scraggy didn't elle mcphereson design some maternity lingerie?? wouldn't know where to find it though so I'm not much help am I!!

Scraggyaggy Tue 09-Nov-04 15:59:32

Yes, Elle does black and purple sets. I spose it's ok, but then that'll just give me 3 sets!!

charleypops Tue 09-Nov-04 16:03:05

I appear to have stopped blowing off after about 3 weeks of it. Luckily I have a dog(!)

As for food, the only thing I've been able to eat today so far has been a bowl of beetroot chopped up in some cottage cheese. I've not been feeling sick at all really compared to some of you, just off my food. I'm feeling hungry now though and have no idea what I'm going to do about it.

Got a doctor's appt at 5 today to try and change Hospitals so I need my strength. I think I'll have a go at a couple of rice cakes.

Are most people needing new underwear and clothes already? I think I've lost a bit of weight so still in my old ones.

MrsWednesday Tue 09-Nov-04 16:16:12

I'm wearing all the stuff I bought after I had DS, before I lost most of my baby weight. And hipster trousers with long shirts. As for underwear - I'm still struggling on with the my usual stuff, which might explain why my boobs are so sore.

Would you be able to stomach a slice of dry bread or something like that Charleypops?

Scraggyaggy Tue 09-Nov-04 16:17:55

Charleypops, you need to make sure you're eating well. How about a bowl of crunchy nut cornflakes? Or an apple?

Scraggyaggy Tue 09-Nov-04 16:19:35

My boobs are terribly sore - hence the request for underwear info. However, I have bought some vests with hidden support which I wear to bed, so boobs aren't sore at night, therefore less sore in the day.

Uwila Tue 09-Nov-04 16:25:53

HIya Charley. Glad you made it. My last bit of advice before you go see doc. Don't ask if you can go to another hospital. Tell him full stop you are NOT going to St. Peters and where can he get you in. If he says "I'm afraid you don't have a choice", you can always change your GP. Definitely ask about Guildford. Kingston and West Mid are already way overprescribed and hence about impossible to get into. You might have to be willing to go to London (like me).


Remember that this is your pregnancy, not your GPs and you deserve to choose where you go (although be prepared that you may need to be flexible)

Hope to see you on here later.... I'll be back around 9:00.

sweetheart Tue 09-Nov-04 16:32:37

Hi Charleypops and welcome.

Judging my Uwila's post you must be fairly close to me. I'm about a 30 min drive out of Guildford. I haven't heard of St Peters though so I'm guessing your the other side of Guildford to me?!?!?!?!

Scraggyaggy Tue 09-Nov-04 17:23:26

Am off everyone / anyone! Hope you all have a nice evening. I'm about to have a mad shop in Tesco's for all the lovely food we have been discussing today!
