Due in Dec 06' Thread 3:)(341 Posts)
I have done it,
Wishing us all the very best, Some of us have reached the 12wks (well done to all of you) and for all the rest who have to reach the 12wks (including me) we'll get there just stay chatting and time will fly.
A little baby dust for a healthy pregnancy..
Minnie, what a lovely opening
I actually called myself sweetheart coz thats what I tet to call my dd, nieces and nephew when I'm talking to them - I glad you were so pleased to start the thread
ladies nice to see a new thread, but......er.is it me or am I due 2005? rather than 2006?
lol, well spotted DQ!!!!! I hadn't noticed.
what was i thinking !!!!!!!! aghhhhhhh
I am soooo sorry ladies blame it on the pregnancy brain..
Will i change and ask them to delete this one?
No wonder time seems to be dragging!!!
Hi DQ, how are you today? Is your m/s still causing you problems?
Well my DP has proved himself to be a god!! I've been feeling pretty low so he has surprised me by booking us a weekend in Cornwall. I cried when he told me. Feeling very lucky now especially when I think about how snappy & horrid I've been over the last couple of weeks.
minnie dont change just leave it to mess with other mnetters heads..pmsl. We all know when were due .
good day to u all...no news from heres yet? Hope that means something good.
i feel like time is dragging too even though im 10wks. I think the fact i havent got another scan till august and the fact that i know doppler prob wont pickup heartbeat till 16 plus is annoying me as i was 18 wks with ds when they picked it up and im bigger now..lol
may actually join the thread properly tomorrow if all goes well with my scan, rather than just lurking.
Hope everyone is okay.
Hugs to hereshoping.
Nemo, I'm jealous, you are in double figures!! I've given up on NHS scans & doing mine privately for the time being. I don't think I would make it through the next few weeks without going mad if I don't have a scan.
Hey YBear, good luck for tomorrow. xx
george i know what u mean and if i had £100 then i would be phoning and booking but unfortunately cant...sigh
Yellow lots of luck for tommorow hun and then we expect at least one post a day
Hi there. I am also counting down the days and time seems to be creeping by. Its funny but once I start to 'show' properly (not just fat lol) I don't mind as I like to swan around being wonderfully pregnant. But I can't wait to get there! I am 9-1 weeks (think positive )
Am thinking of changing my name but don't want to tempt fate and can't think of anything to change it to...hmmm
I have a silly question, how do I know when I am showing properly and not just fat?
Really silly I know. Is it blatantly obvious when it happens?
(Feel a bit silly now )
Hello - new to the thread - am due 2nd Dec 05 (rather than 06!).
Am 12+4 today had scan last friday and all well.
Currently have 8 month old DD - she'll be 15 months when little bro or sis arrives so I'm going to have my hands full!!!
hey ladies. been little point checking in as been very sick and depressed over it. but i'm lurking most days. saturday was so awful, sick eight times, kept nothing down, not even water. sunday alittle better, but made appointment with dr for monday as still ill. she was awful her whole attitude was 'well youre pg so should be sick' which is crap. she cheerfully told me if i kept down one meal every 48hrs 'thats fine and means youre well enough' she basically told me to grin and bear it. and i understand theres not much they can do, but taking my blood pressure, and checking my iron levels (have crap iron levels in pg, and low iron makes sickness worse)would of been a start. she did nothing. 'keep taking the tablets' she said even tho i said i nearly always throw them up. so felt v low indeedy. poor ol me!
sorry, where are my manners, 'welcome Pennies' and hope you feel okay!
george, a weekend away? oh yes purlease!!!how fab. can i come????
I'm 9wks something. slooooooooooooooooooooooooow creep towards 12wks. or even 11wk scan. sigh.
Sorry to have to post bad news so soon after the start of the new thread, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to leave you now.
Everything had been hunkydory until Saturday, but then I woke up on Sunday morning with some light bleeding, which within about 15 minutes had turned to very heavy bleeding, and then pretty rapidly to haemorrhage (sp?). Ended up with an emergency admission to hospital, monitoring during Sunday while still bleeding copiously and eventually emergency surgery Sunday night to stop it as BP was going through the floor. I remember at one point the machine was reading 65 over 35 and I was quite rationally thinking that I didn't realise that you could still be concious if it was that low - it only struck me later how bizarre it was that I was thinking about that, rather than what the seriousness of the situation actually was. Scan also confirmed I'd lost the baby (though seeing how much blood and other stuff I'd been losing I hardly expected anything different by then).
No obvious reason apparently - it's just one of those things, and they won't investigate unless it happens at least three times, possibly not even then as I've already had ds so have proved I can carry to term.
Am back home now, but physically actually feel worse than I did while it was all happening. It might have looked dramatic, but at the time it was all pretty painless, now I can't comfortably move around and it seems to be getting more painful as time goes by, not less (anyone know if that's normal, or not?). Just as well that I've been signed off work for at least another week.
Don't know where we go from here, as it took two and a half years to conceive this one, and nearly as long for ds, so realistically it may now be too late for us if it takes as long again. Even if we are lucky I don't know that I'd be able to relax about it, given what has happened this time, later than the usual high risk time for miscarriage. Will definately be demanding early scans if we are ever in this position again.
Was very down about it yesterday, but at least today have spent more time being at least outwardly composed about it than I have crying, which is the opposite way around to yesterday, so progress of sorts I suppose.
Good luck to all of you, and I'll be thinking of you come December.
lunar sea, so very very sorry to hear your news. take it easy on yourself. biggest ((((hugs))) to you
LunarSea, how awful for you. I am so sorry about your news.
Please make sure you are kind to yourself over the coming weeks.
Lunar im so sorry for your loss. (((((()))))) big hugs as alot of us know some of what you are feeling. Take care.
Have been looking in the mirror tonight and realsied that although im fat my bady has already started to change shape. This sounds strange but fat has moved from my hips and is making a small bump on my tummy!! Was stood waiting for my son to come out of school and another mum was staring at my belly! Then she asked how far along i was!! Have heard that you show earlier with each pregnancy and this is my 4th so do you all think this is right?
Went shopping with dh and was sick again in safeways!! Managed to get my tissues ready first but dh was so embarrased!! HAH welcome to my world DH!!!!!
quick question and sorry if TMI
I have a very clear sticky discharge, it doesnt smell but there is alot of it. Should i worry or is this my natural protection??
sorry again if TMI
Lunar - so sorry to read your post - look after yourself.
I've got my nucal today, but don't have my booking-in appointment till next week - weird?
I'm either 12 weeks today, or just over 13 weeks? Hopefully scan can decide.
Anyone else had their nucal?
Lunarsea I am so very very sorry.
How are you feeling now? if it's still painful I'd give NHS Direct a call just to check. It must have been a frightening awful experience and you're probably still too shocked to grieve yet. Don't know what to say - do take care of yourself.
george - re showing properly - you will know! stomach sticks out in a kind of domelike way that's unmistakable
Lunarsea, I'm so very very sorry for your loss - please allow yourself proper time to grieve and don't rush yourself to get over this. You have been through a terrible time but I can promise you from experience that things do get better.
If it's any consolation it took us ages to conceive the baby we lost in January - we were having fertility test to find what the problem was. When we lost him I felt like I was back to square one and I had lost so much time. I couldn't bear the though of another year of ttc. We managed to conceive this one in a month!!!!!!
Everything happens for a reason hun, please let us know how your doing!!!
Welcome to pennies - and congrats too!!!
george and bonkerz - I'm showing, infact I can't wuite believe how much coz with my dd I didn't show until about 6 months!!!! I've already resorted to maternity gear!!!
Bonkerz, the discharge is totally natural - I'm getting it to (infact it's pretty much my only pregnancy symptom). You only need to worry if it changes colour or starts to smell!!!
Yellowbear - good luck for today, I'l be thinking of you. I'm sure you'll be fine!!!
Golden, I had my neucal fold test on Monday. It said I had a risk of 1 in 5500 which is the highest result I've ever had. My dd was 1 in 4000(ish). The risk for my age was 1 in 950 and the Dr said that the gap they measure was really really tiny which made my risk score really low.
