May 2020 - where we get our 12 wks scan and wave goodbye to 1st trimester. hello 2nd trimester(85 Posts)
@mintbear I haven't posted on FB yet. I find the whole thing too busy there are over 100 people. With DC1 my FB was smaller and I've still kept in touch with some of the ladies.
Tbh, I don't see much point of the FB this early. Hopefully with time it will get into a nice flow.
@Sunshine8888 excited for the 12 wks scan and as bad as it sound I can't wait for 1st trimester to be over, I'm over the sickness and all day nausea. I think it's worse this time round as I'm older or maybe my mind just forgot this phase 🥴.
Also 1000 post so time for a new thread! WoW
Can I join this thread too. I'm 8+6 today, didn't have much nausea in the 1st 7 weeks, just lots of bloat and cramps, tiredness. Managed to cook for a couple days, then the nausea came back started to getting stronger the last couple days. Was thinking I will be able to go back to work next week, but now not so sure. I'm really hoping will get better by week 12.
Is anyone else suffering with diarrhoea to go with the morning sickness fun? I dont remember it last time at all
@skiaddicted Iron can cause both diarrhoea and constipation in pregnancy. 🙈 Kiwi fruit are a good source of iron. Tea/coffee/milk can stop absorption of iron.
The antenatal vitamins gave me terrible sickness and made me feel very queasy. They may be making you feel worse.
I stopped taking them in case it was them causing the issue 🙈 just ramped up fruit and veg intake massively. We do eat a lot of spinach so could be iron related!
Im so much more nervous about everything this time, the different symptoms just make me think there will be bad news at our scan tomorrow afternoon
@skiaddicted I had very few symptoms last time and the scan was perfect. You might be lucky and sail through the first trimester without too much sickness. I'm thinking of booking an early scan for reassurance.
@mymaybebaby last time i had mild morning sickness, this time i feel sick most of the time and spent last weekend vomitting, also had diarrhoea this week too......struggling to work this time really but i dont want to not work. Just got fingers crossed for tomorrow
We had an early scan last time too and it does definitely put your mind at rest a bit......until the next scan and then the one after
Hello everyone! Just checking in to the new thread! Will be 9 weeks on Monday and so far not feeling any different really (sorry, for those of you who are suffering!). Often really tired, but that could also be because of the toddler who still doesn't sleep through the night...
Looking forward to my next scan on the 31st!
Have my second scan on Wednesday (10+5).
Hopefully, all is well, and we will let the family know. Haven't told anyone yet.
Seem to be less sick, with fewer symptoms in general right now. Just need to wee overnight and starving as soon as I am awake.
No bowel issues here (yet!), but have really craved orange juice so have had a glass of fresh juice with bits in daily which may help some of you.
The only vitamins i am taking is folic acid with b12. Can't get the other type very easily here, and reading up seems folic acid is the most important.
Will you all continue folic acid the whole way through, or just to 12 weeks as recommended? I think i will plan to take mine until the 2 packs run out (probably around 18 weeks), then just take a vitamin d. or is it worth swapping to a pregnancy vitamin then? (can get a supply when next in uk)
@Coastaldreamer congrats!!! That scan image is so clear!! Which company did you use if you dont mind me asking?
We had our scan Saturday evening, it was amazing! All healthy and due date has moved to 10th may
Hey @Skiaddicted the company we used was 'Window to the Womb'. They have branches all over and were well reviewed!
Congrats on your scan too 🤗 x
Hi all, finally found this thread! Took me a while to realise the previous one was full.
I am somewhere between 11 & 12 weeks today as I'm unsure of when I ovulated, but I have my 12 week scan on Friday afternoon so that should confirm my EDD.
I have been feeling sooo nauseous but it is finally easing off this week - I had my first cup of tea this afternoon since I don't know when!!
Girls havent been on abit. I'm roughly 8+3 now. However I went for early scan when I should've been 7+1. But it dated me 6+1.. I've a scan in the morning. Anyone else same as me. I'm worried something is wrong. I did see our beans heartbeat. I'm getting so nervous now
Sorry- just realised and found the thread too!
There was another thread I saw for ppl due 1-10 May, but I can't find it now!
So I have a question to put out there.. is anyone else showing? Im 10+4 today and I'm not exaggerating, I now have quite a large bump and I'm really worried ppl will notice (way before I'm ready to tell).
This is my first pregnancy (I know you tend to show earlier with your second and so on). I am overweight, so I was hoping I would be able to keep it under wraps for some time. I think a lot of it will be bloating as my diet has changed into a beige carbohydrate buffet while I've been suffering with the (almost) daily vom session.
Anyone else (although I think I might be on my own here)??
@mintbear - this is fourth pg for me 3rd baby but I can def see a bump coming along. I'm hoping this is a good sign for my scan tomoro and not hormones mucking me about. I was quite active when fell pg playing a physical sport and training 3nights per week. I had lost weight and toned my tummy. So this bump def wasnt there few weeks ago..maybe it's my food baby I've been eating more crap lately lol
@mintbear I remember with my first I had to get maternity trousers before 12 weeks because there was so much bloat/my upper tummy was so round I couldnt stand normal trousers pressing on it! I think the bloating went down in the second trimester and a "proper" (for lack of a better word!) appeared which was lower and my upper tummy was less puffy if that makes sense.
The first time round I also put a lot of weight on in the first trimester and this time a lot less but I still think I am showing just as much as the first time round... Bodies are weird!
Totally get your post, my tummy seems to grow and shrink. I've bought some mat clothes that I've started to wear however the bloat bump isn't holding them up- but they are way more comfy.
I'm having a scan today, just want to check everything is alright and calm my anxiety, I've not had my appointment for my first nhs scan yet.
Still feeling and being very sick, I'm 11 weeks tomorrow. How's everyone else feeling?
Read somewhere that there is something called the nub theory which determine the gender as early as 8-10 weeks... Anyone heard of this before...
Hello ladies! Longtime lurker, now 11+1 weeks and feeling generally quite anxious about it all.
Does anyone know what the FB group is now called? Was quite hesitant to join but think the support would be great. Thanks!
I found you all! Just checking in, I'll be 10+2 tomorrow and I'm going for a private scan, once I know everything is OK they're going to let my little boy in the room to see it ☺️ I'm so so excited to see his little face. Then we will go and announce to both sets of parents. I will update tomorrow evening!
Still feeling absolutely diabolical from the minute I open my eyes all day, and being sick now into the bargain. Hope this eases off a bit soon.
