Continuation of the last thread.

There's cake for scoffing, backs for patting, and screeching death metal for all your metalling moments. All welcome so come on in and get settled into the plush sofas!

<Metalling: the term 'metalling' was coined after a typo, ie the art of 'mentalling' in that one gets all mental and in a head fuck with the slightest of symptom of, well, anything.>

<Mosh pit: Metalling of course gave rise to the mosh pit, where we all dive into when we start, well, metalling>

So settle into the mosh pit, we have special VIP area's for those on the 2WW, the new bumps metalling with segregated areas for the first/second/third trimesters and the club class cocktail bar for those who have just got AF and can get-pissed let loose for the first two weeks!

WhyAlwaysBoris, thanks for the new thread.
Manda, thanks for the advice on the conception vits. I've got the pre-conception pregnancare ones which I will start taking pronto ! Will also go to Holland and Barratts for the B vits. I don't believe they will mess with my cycle. Thanks again.

Hi everyone,

Chronic metalling to the point of tears and making myself feel sick, 6+4 now and had aches/twinges NOT pain around my hips lower abdomen (I do have 2 section scars if that makes a difference) if I move I can make them stop but then it comes back. All evening, today I have walked more than normal and feel a bit wiped out, I also have back ache but I get that occasionally.

Totally freaking out here!!

I'm scared.

Hi Everybody,

Just noticed the new thread, hope you don't mind me sticking my head back in smile

Just wanted to say a huge thanks for all the support from the ladies over here getting me through awful awful times with lots of cake and metalling. I'm now 17+1 and starting to feel little wiggles of DC2 grin but I couldn't have got through those early days without you lot thanks

Next, I hope this doesn't sound insensitive in anyway but I'm gonna offer any way...I have a few (about 15 or so) internet cheapy tests, a clearblue digi and a First Response (I think) if anybody would like them? The cheapies are very faint but good for peeing on and checking BFNs when you really know it's too early and you shouldn't be testing wink Then you can double check on the expensive ones!

Just let me know and PM me your address and I'll pop em in the post. (Obviously I'll cover postage in payment for all the cake)

Good luck to those of you still TTC and those that are new, you are in very safe hands but so sad that you find yourselves here smile

Also marking place

bonzo77 Tue 24-Apr-12 21:38:45

Marking my place. But not in the way that my cat did earlier. With a wee puddle and a dead bird. Just off to stats thread to update there...

Poppyjen Tue 24-Apr-12 22:19:02

Marking my spot - thanks for new thread smile

Thanks everyone for kind words after my scan news, its all finally sinking in....not sure what to do with girls but I am sure they can't be that different to boys...right??? wink

Also wanted to ask Manda and Blue - how are you holding up ladies? Not long now, how are you feeling?

onedayatatime73 Tue 24-Apr-12 22:21:13

Saying hello too.
Did a clearblue digi this morning and it said "1-2 weeks pregnant" but today my boobs have totally deflated. AF due tomorrow or Thursday - and so have spent most of today at work in tears (hiding) totally convinced this is game over now. Each hour lasts forever. I don't feel like I have the stamina for this metalling lark. I can't really think an hour at a time let alone a day.
I feel it's my own stupid fault for having no patience and testing so early.

Hope everyone else is trying to find ways to stay calm.

Poppyjen Tue 24-Apr-12 22:21:33

Oh and Pie I think it was you that asked how the spa weekend was....heavenly. Just trying to work out how I can persuade DH another one will be necessary before the end of the summer..... grin Hope you are doing ok too, I am sure the next couple of months is going to fly by!

BlueCrane Tue 24-Apr-12 22:34:58

Hello...just popping on to mark my place on the new thread!

poppy all well here thanks..35 weeks today shock seems very strange to have got this far!! We even had our pram delivered today, it is all finally starting to feel quite real and I have a very active mini crane who really needs to learn that Mummy's hips and ribs can't be moved by repeated bashing with hands, feet or bum and that doing that from 1-3am doesn't really bless Mummy when she has to get up for work the next morning!! Having said that, I finish work on Friday which also seems to have suddenly come around! Glad you are ok!

I also owe a huge thanks to all the lovely ladies on this thread for helping me through my many metalling moments post mc and through ttc into the early days, weeks and months of this pregnancy!

Morning shiny new thread smile

2 weeks until my 12 week scan, DP can't help but get excited, he has started asking questions and wanting to feel/talk to my tummy. I know he has been really trying not to incase but now it seems his excitement cup is over flowing.

He keeps asking if I think everything is ok in there, I just tell him that the sickness and other symptoms are reassuring but we can't know until the scan that our little kicker is still with us.

It's his birthday tomorrow, I have to brave the rain and storms to go and buy a bday card and wrapping paper this afternoon.

Morning everyone!

<looks at lovely food, make self hungry, contributes bagels with cream cheese>

CD8 for me today, please AF, go away! I want to get on with TTC!

stateofconfusion Hope you are ok today.

oneday Hope AF stays away for you.

Still metalling, walking across the landing as soon as I woke I got stomach ache, but I think its dinner disagreeing with me, TMI (been to the toilet a lot)

Midgetm Wed 25-Apr-12 08:51:29

Just marking my place as at work and don't want to loose you all again. Strokes to all those metalling x

tedmundo Wed 25-Apr-12 09:23:59

Hi .. I have been lurking but now feel able to start posting. Just entered my 2ww ... Testing about the 10th may. Had an mc back in early march so this is first proper cycle.

state .. I know what you mean about the stress of a whole pregnancy looming. I had 2dc and then the mc and I feel like it has robbed me of all the ease and fun I had being preggers with the other 2.

Anyway, let's hope I get a Bfp in a couple of weeks and then the metalling will commence!

Congrats to all the lovely ladies with buns cooking in their tummies... Yummy babies here we come!

newtonupontheheath Wed 25-Apr-12 09:25:17

Tenner if you are on a pc or the MN website there is a button next to log out that says inbox... I think you can go in that way. If you get no joy, I'll pm you later when I get the laptop on and then you can reply smile No payment required, they're a gift a gift for you to pee on wink
