Due in July - Part 3- we are a chatty loy...(1001 Posts)
Thought would start a new thread...
Justaboutmanaging- I know a few people who had IUGR with there first then other pg were fine.
How much did your DS weigh, my dd was 2.2kg, (4lb14oz) I was lucky though she did alot better than what they were expecting her to do, she only had an hour in SCBU, this was for a lumbar puncture bless her..
My DS was 3.1kg (6lb 15oz)
Just noticed my mistake in title.....sorry........lol

hi ladies, i have been away and trying to catch up with everyone' s news, this thread is soooo busy.. it may take some time though. no news other than i had a brilliant holiday and my DS ( 19 mos) slept all 12 hours of the flight there and back.. marvellous.
15 weeks tomorrow, can't believe how it's going quickly now. will try and read up to see how you all are in the meantime. giulia x
Welcome Justaboutmanaging - I'm sure everything will be fine with this lo.
Miaou - thanks. I was wondering what IUGR was too
Catstart - hope the rash is getting better.
Boobunny - sorry to hear about your scare but glad everything is ok. Take it easy. This seems to be a very common.
Guilia68 - glad you had a good holiday.
I'm having a good day today. Had my hair cut last night and some new clothes were delivered. Feel like I look loads better and much more like me. ms seems to be taking a backseat too, which helps! 17+3 today. 20wk scan date came in post for 20 Feb. Can't believe almost halfway through!!!
giulia68 - glad you had a great holiday
Melissam- youre next scan is on the same date as mine
I am still waiting for some clothes for me from next sale to arrive, at the moment I am living in a pair of materniity jeans, and a pair of combats (that I have to wear on my hips otherwise they are too tight!) I have a coupkle of trackie bottoms to lounge about the house in.. I am hoping my new stuff comes so I can look decent for DH next week.... I am getting my hair done on Wednesday.....
I am getting soo excited now.. DH left his camp in Harat on the 31st Jan, I have no idea where he is at the moment, I was hoping he would have phoned me by now to let me know where he is and that he is ok...only 7sleeps left
wow - you must be getting very excited now, twoplusone! I am sure dh will be in touch as soon as he can. Will be great to have your hair done and have new clothes for when dh gets home.
If the next clothes were in stock when you ordered them, they shouldn't take too long to arrive. It's usually only a few days I think (although some of the items I last ordered from there were on back order so took a couple of weeks).
I was getting desperate for clothes as I hardly had anything with any room. I lost weight b4 pg and most of my clothes were quite fitted. Still don't have any tracky bottoms or anything really for relaxing in. At at least dh did talk me into buying stuff that actually fits! Feels much better than wearing tents.
Hope your scan goes well must be a good day for them.
If you get chance check this out. V funny!!!
Thread three. How many will we have under our belts at 40+ weeks gone. Maybe we all need to get out more often and stay away from the computers
Weekly stats - these could well be wrong! After my two weeks sick have not kept up so well with newbies and date changes. If there is an error please post a message and will correct for next week!

Hi justbemanaging - my DS (in addition to his other problems) had IUGR so have already been told to expect 4 weekly growth monitoring scans from 24 weeks onwards.
My 20 week scan isn't until 2nd March when I will be 22 weeks (hmmmm)! Got a doppler scan on 23rd March to look at blood flow from the placenta to baby, hopefully will all be very positive!
I am really suffering from 'baby brain' today...either that or I am completely stupid! I had a big conversation with a girl in work about the book 'Devil wears Prada' and told her she could lend my copy and read it. She came up to me 10 minutes later and asked if she could borrow the book and I was totally confused and had no idea what she was referring to! She had to remind me that I had said she could borrow it! Thats so not like me!
Anyone else finding this? Or am I really just stupid!?
Abgirl, glad to see you are feeling better. Thank you for the stats.
giulia68 - glad you had a great holiday! Seems like you have been away for ages!
Twoplusone - YOu must be sooooooo excited! Lets hope that DH gets here sooner than you think!
And to all those that spent weeks in hospital, I hope that you don't have a repeat experience this time.
Big hugs to all and well done on the haircuts and new clothes! Makes you feel so much better.
I am due 30th June makes me 19 weeks tomorrow!
Still no scan. look like a house side...think I must be having a giant or a litter!! Or maybe I have no stomach muscles to hold it all together!!
Hi all! Wow, its been busy here... I ahven't caught up the end of the part 2 thread, so just seen this one.
Auntymandy - I know what you mean. I am really big and already people are starting to notice (I deliberately haven't told work yet but I know people must guess!!!). I'm only 16 weeks (on sunday anyway) but look more like 20wks. Its definately true that my stomach muscles have all but disappeared
Welcome to the newcomers and sorry to hear about long hospital stays. That must be so difficult! Fingers (and everything else) crossed that this time goes much smoother for everyone.
I have my anomoly scan on the 21st Feb so only a day after a couple of you. Its my 20wk scan at 18wks. I'm already terrified about it... I saw the mid-wife yesterday for bloods (triple test) and heartbeat (which couldn't be found by the student doing it - once the midwife took over I heard it and breathed a massive sigh of relief!) and she was so nice to me about the problems with my last pregnancy that I have to say I started crying . They were lovely people and I hope you all get to see such wonderful mid-wives (I know there have been some dodgy stories already).
Twoplusone - It must be such a relief to know that DH has started his journey home. Its fab you are getting new clothes and haircut - you'll feel on top of the world when you see him . I bet your kids are excited too.
I hope everyone else is doing well - I'll catch up with the last thread to see what I missed!
Thanks for the stats abgirl!!!
Just been in to local town at lunch time and Dorothy Perkins have some nice sale stuff - bought some chocolate brown maternity cords for £5 - definitely worth a look for anyone going shopping this weekend.
Also had a look at twin pushchairs in Daisy & Tom and Phil & Ted's E3 explorer is definitely the one so need to get serious on ebay now! Was over £400 with all the extra we want new!!
Auntymandy, sorry to hear you haven't had a scan yet...it will make your first one all that more exciting!
Chooster - so pleased to hear that everything went well with your midwife! What a relief...so pleased for you!
Firststar - go for it with the trousers! You may find that the sales are still on but if not I found New Look pretty good. Got a great pair of black trousers out of there and they washed up okay too.
Abgirl - Bargain! Excellent tip thank you.
Well I actually feel pretty good this afternoon. Had a real craving for a sausage sandwich so got one and ate it like I havent eaten for months! I am wearing a maternity skirt today and I cannot remember the last time I was this comfy! Heaven!
Big hugs to all
Quick food question: is anyone else finding it hard to eat what they normally eat? I usually eat a ton of veg and fish and right now I cannot go near it! Still getting that really sickie feeling if I try.
I have never liked pork very much but seem to be craving ham, bacon etc....
Im getting a little worried that Im not eating healthily enough (am eating fruit and taking vits), but nothing like as healthy as I normally would.
Anyone else like this?
Myfairone, I am finding healthy eating a total nightmare at the moment, particularly in the mornings - just can't face the wholemeal seeded bread I usually eat, though plain white seems OK. Am definitely off fish too, we normally have it 2-3 times a week but now having salmon once a week if that - can't go near white fish. I just seem to spend all day looking at food and not really fancying it! Trying to eat more healthily in the evenings but get peckish around 9pm and it's more easy to reach for snacks/ice cream than anything else...
Have now peeled the stickers off my trousers that were covering the original price- they were £25 originally - I am the bargain queen!!
On food I cant decide what I want to eat...
I am so hungry, more and more so everyday.. but dont fancy anything I have in or anything i see in the shops!!.. I really dont know what I want but know that i want something specific.. if that makes sense
Sorry also ment to add-
Chooster- glad your mw appointment went well.. I am waiting on my results from the triple test..
Abgirl- well done on your bargain... I hardley ever find the bargains!! I am a rubbish shopper.
Have a good weekend all .
