Here it is! A zero morning sickness thread for us all to enjoy!

MommyD Wed 26-Jan-05 16:57:06

Yes my morning sickness disappeared at 13 weeks. What a relief! It only rears its ugly head when I am hungry or tired....
Anyone still feeling/being sick?

Eulalia Wed 26-Jan-05 17:03:58

Thanks for the new thread Bagpuss.

MommyD - you get movements? Great- wonder if I'll be feeling some by this time next week then. I am also on my 3rd.

Yes still feel a little bit sicky in the evening sometimes particularly when opening the fridge. Can't stand chopping onions and am totally off mushrooms but apart from that can eat anything and everything

Hi All,

Yeah - sickness has gone. Got a horrible urine infection though and I'm having the worlds smelliest tablets. I have to hold my nose when I take them otherwise the sickness makes a return... When are engery levels going to come back? It would be nice to be able to stay awake to watch the 10 'O' clock news. Poor you HC and Pamina having to get up in the night.

Thanks for the Maternus tip HC. There used to be one near where I live but it closed. I didn't know they had other branches. I work in Old Street so I think a lunchtime trip up there is in order... I hope you're having a good day working from home.

Pamina, I'm impressed with your organisation. We don't know what to do about our second one. dd is currently at a council run nursery which is threatened with closure. The service is guaranteed until August but they don't know what will happen after that. If I have to put two of them in private nursery it will hardly be worth my while working. Oh dear. I don't want to be a full time Mum. I don't think I've got the patience. It looks like dh is going to loose his job (he works for Allders who have just gone into administration). Maybe he can be a full time Dad!

I'm 16 weeks tomorrow. The 20 weeks scan must be coming up soon for the early July ones? I don't get mine until I'm 23 weeks as we're going on holiday (yippee!)

Bagpuss30 Thu 27-Jan-05 10:33:11

Morning all. Kids woke us at 5 am. Have been doing it now for weeks and I'm really tired . Sympathies HC anf Pamina.

My 20 week scan is on Valentine's day, so not very long to wait now.

I hardly feel sick at all really but I didn't notice a difference until 15 weeks.

Lolasmum, hope the infection clears soon .

hoxtonchick Thu 27-Jan-05 11:18:44

oooh, we don't live far from old street, lolasmum. maternus has really nice stuff but the prices make me feel weak. i think their sale is on 'til the end of the month. so i'd go today!

i am working very hard. NOT. ds made me watch him eat his breakfast at nursery, then i had to sort out the car which had a flat battery, & i've just been shopping for party food for saturday. really am going to start soon....

that's so rude of your boss pamina . good reply though! i remember when i was interviewed for my previous job, i was 24 & one of the interview panel asked when i was going to go off & have a baby.... (he was a very old & eminent professor). the rest of the panel were more shocked than me, they all told him off. however, he had the last laugh - dp was my boss in that job & we had ds 2 years later .

hoxtonchick Thu 27-Jan-05 11:20:52

and nursery have just rung to go & pick ds up. arrrrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhh!

Pamina - unlike you I think we will not find out the sex this time. We did with the last two because dh wanted to. I really don't mind what sex we have (although with two boys already, it would be quite nice to have a girl for a change). I know if I tell people we are having a third boy I will get my fair share of "...oh never minds.." (I did with ds2) and TBH I find that quite upsetting - like ds2 was the booby prize. Don't know what that would make ds3???!! I would also quite like to be the mother of three boys - but whichever way, I would rather not know this time. I'd like a surprise
I have lost count of the number of people's first reaction to our having a third was "... was it planned...?" or "oooh... that can't have been planned". Well it was actually.

Eulalia Thu 27-Jan-05 12:35:47

Pamina - wow! Is it that long? Must go and check out that thread. We must be fellow 'founders' of Mumsnet!

I am also getting questions about was it planned. Also I think people assume that because you have a boy and a girl then that is 'enough'. My ds has autism though and there is a risk that if it is boy then he may be affected too but I don't want to find out beforehand.

HC - hope your ds is OK.

Lolasmum - hope you are better soon.

Bagpuss30 Thu 27-Jan-05 12:47:20

HC good luck at nursery, hope its not too serious.

Pamina, yes we will find out the sex if we can. Not bothered either way really but dh is a planner and secretly would like another boy. We found out with both the others also.

I am really fed up with people's inability to comprehend why we would like more children tbh. Although I have had silly comments (from my grandmother and also my sil), most people are sitting so much on the fence. One of ds's nursery teachers was really nice the other day though, seemed to be the most sympathetic by far and she has three boys too!

Oh, also forgot to say yesterday, got my barts test results back. 1 in 2000. Better than my odds with dd which were 1 in 372.

i am the odd one out here, only on number 2!

ds is downstairs watching tv, feeling sorry for himself. we have had lots of cuddles, calpol & choc buttons. i am hoping to persuade him to sleep after lunch & then i can work super-speedily....

Eulalia Thu 27-Jan-05 13:31:22

Pamina - found that thread you mentioned and copying my post here... I found my first (I think) posts on 1st Aug 2000. I wonder if I am the oldest member who is still currently posting? Is it possible to find this out... probably not. Maybe I would be eligible for a prize?

Must go and do something constructive now.

Lolasmum Thu 27-Jan-05 14:43:25

HC - I'm the same as you. I think 2 will be enough for me. Dh is already mentally planning for the 3rd though... Hope ds is feeling better soon and that you get to share the chocolate buttons! I was going to pop up to Maternus at lunchtime but then things went busy... I'll try tomorrow.

Pamina, I've got a girl already and I'm hoping for another girl. I'm not going to find out though. I didn't last time. I got scared that I would be told it would be a girl and then when it was born it would be a boy (or vice versa). That happened to a friend's cousin.

Anybody having any mad cravings? I could kill for salt & vineger crisps at the moment.

Bagpuss30 Thu 27-Jan-05 15:12:01

S&V crisps are a classic girl craving I think. Mine is prawn cocktail crisps, fish and chips (but I have only had this once as I am trying to avoid all that fat), cheese, smoked salmon/cream cheese bagels, fish finger sandwiches. So basically anything fish and cheese related. Had the same with ds so think its prob another boy. Had a mad thing about Coronation chicken with dd (which was handy as it was golden jubilee year that she was born!), which reappeared briefly this time also but that could just be me being a greedy fat person .

hoxtonchick Thu 27-Jan-05 15:27:46

this pregnancy i am mostly craving food..... anything will do! i am much more weepy than last time, & also my skin hasn't broken out nearly as much. so maybe it's a girl. i really don't mind - i think ds would prefer a brother, & we have all the stuff already, but a girl would be nice & symmetrical, & it would be nice for me to have an ally in the family.

chocolate buttons duly disposed of....

pinkmama Thu 27-Jan-05 15:44:48

Hi everyone. Not been around for a few days as my mother is over from spain. Keeps telling me what a shame it is that I'm not very good at pregnancy because apparently I am the only person she has ever knows that has tiredness/sickness/weepiness/absent mindedness. Other people just sail through it apparently, in a glow of blooming maternal gorgeousness, whilst I however, am a freak! Just the kind of constructive ego stroking I need right now. She goes back tomorrow, thank god, to tell all her friends about her unfortunate daughter! Sorry rant over.

I am feeling much better now, glad so many others are as well. Although still tired, but probably not quite as bad. Feel huge, can't fit in jeans anymore, and have a couple of skirts I can get by with. Fortunately a friend lent me some maternity jeans so have had to give in and wear those.

I haven't had any negative reactions to having a 3rd, but then me and dh are both from families of 3 kids, and in my dd's class there are 4 kids from families of 4, so larger families must be quite common around here. I don't know how some of you have kept your temper with some of those comments.

hoxtonchick Thu 27-Jan-05 15:48:14

grrrrrrrrrr at your mum pm

bundle Thu 27-Jan-05 15:50:05

hc, i had shocking skin with dd2, but not dd1...<<confused emoticon>>>

bundle Thu 27-Jan-05 15:50:52

(btw next time i see you remind me about some black - well, greyish - maternity jeans, from hennes, they may even be long enough for you )

hoxtonchick Thu 27-Jan-05 15:54:09

there goes my theory then bundle!! grey jeans sound lovely .
