Congratulations amy big hugs as well! x it's not easy and you will worry all the way through, but we're right here to hold your hand! x

Congratulations amy
I know it's a really scary time but the people on this thread will be here to hold your hand. I'm 31 weeks pregnant and the baby should be born just two months before my son's first anniversary. I can tell you that this pregnancy has been frightening at times but it has really helped me to cope and get stronger, as well as making me eat!
I always lurk here (mainly post on the facebook group instead of here) so I'll keep you in my thoughts.xx

Hi again Amy, congratulations.

Just wanted to say thank you to all for the reassurances after my last post, the day has arrived and I feel ok - for now. Been holding it all together for the last 48 hours but Jacob has never been far from my thoughts...

Thanks wtw for the ideas - my mum had given me some big pebbles which the boys have now painted and ive made cupcakes with glitter to mark the day.

Fan DH did manage to get down to the cemetary to clear up a bit, he was feeling better - unfortunately has just had to go to A&E because his throat is now bleeding, im trying not to worry as its apparently quite common but needs attention. sad

Thanks also kleine - Understand exactly what you mean. I have a lantern which we will let go at 7.45pm this evening and I will be thinking how thankful I am to have all four of my wonderful sons.

blizy hope having this diagnosis helps you get back on track and 'happy' again.

Love to all of you x

amyboo a massive congratulations, fx for a sticky bean and an uneventful pregnancy.

august so glad it went well and you managed to sort Jacobs grave out. Hope DH is ok.

Whatevertheweather Sun 12-Aug-12 13:52:51

Thinking of you and Jacob today august hope its passing gently xxx

Congratulations Amy smile Lovely news

I'm sat at the hospital waiting to have my first steroid injection and a ctg. It's boiling hot and they seem a bit busy so could be here some time! Still feeling v anxious and tearful - hoping it will dissipate a bit once I've had the ctg. I just don't think I could bear it if something went wrong now.

MiaAlexandrasmummy Sun 12-Aug-12 14:03:52

Big hugs for august today, remembering Jacob with such love.

Also hand-holding for you, whatever, sending you confidence and strength this hot afternoon.

Whatevertheweather Sun 12-Aug-12 14:52:32

Flipping heck steroid injection do sting! Ouch!

fanjodisfunction Sun 12-Aug-12 16:03:22

Here for hand holding too wtw. Have u had the ctg yet?
Only three more sleeps.

Whatevertheweather Sun 12-Aug-12 16:36:52

Yes just come off it - she seems to be perfectly happy still. Just waiting for midwife to say I can go. God I can't wait for Wednesday!! xx

Bluetinkerbell Sun 12-Aug-12 16:52:33

I woke up very distressed this morning and couldn't feel baby kicking, almost had a panic attack. Cuddled up with DH and then she started kicking, after I told him I was worried.
Feel so so tired today, think the tiredness of doing holiday club has kicked in, have no energy at all and feel very strange... Also craving lots of sugary things and my hands feel swollen sad

fanjodisfunction Sun 12-Aug-12 18:10:05

thinking of everyone alot today. I hope your all well and the Rainbow babies are behaving in or out of your tummys. And all you ttc'ers are not too stressed out today.

Been out for lunch with my Dad today bless him, hes all alone as Mum is in Oz seeing my bro and nephew.

Just booked tckets for the chilli festival, cant wait, we went last year it was so good! We love chilli, going to get myself some chilli chocolate and other chilli products. So excited, something to look forward to.

Whatevertheweather Sun 12-Aug-12 18:58:17

Oh blue it is very hard. Have had many of those heart stopping moments where you can't feel them move. Glad she's moving around now. Do take it easy xx

Where's the chilli festival fan? We like the garlic festival on the iow smile

blizy Sun 12-Aug-12 19:27:06

Blue- I hope you are ok and that your little lady is jumping around.

Whatever- you are so close, hang on in there my lovely.

Fan- unjust told my Dh about the chilli festival, he is so jealous. He is a chilli fiendgrin.

August- I hope the day has past by as gently as possible for you. I was thinking about Jacob today and lit a wee candle for him.

That's me in the 2ww now. Fan- when will you be testing?

Oops, sorry I forgot to wish Amyboo congratulations!

fanjodisfunction Sun 12-Aug-12 19:32:30

wtw its in Chichester at west dean. Its over the bank holiday, we are going on the monday.

blizy I shall be testing this friday or saturday depending on how strong I will be.

The chilli festival has chilli food from around the world, lots of chilli sauces, chilli ice cream, chocolate, fudge, sweets. Chilli plants to buy, music from all the chilli countries, all set in a wonderful west dean grounds. We didnt take alot of money last time and regretted it, as we wanted to buy lots of stuff to cook with, but we are going to take a bit this time. Might even buy a chilli plant this year.

Whatevertheweather Sun 12-Aug-12 19:40:08

That sounds fab fan we normally go to the kite festival in southsea over august bank holiday, Erin's birthday is the Saturday of bh weekend but might try and get over on the Sunday depending on how I've recovered.

Waves Blizy thank you my lovely. Hope 2ww passes quickly!

Been to see bil and sil's new baby this evening. He's very sweet and sil looks well. Bil was quite furtive we hardly saw him!

fanjodisfunction Sun 12-Aug-12 20:18:15

wtw what is his name?

amyboo Sun 12-Aug-12 21:53:29

Hello to everyone and thanks for your words of support. I'm wavering between refusing to believe this will be a successful pregnancy (I had a mmc and erpc at 13 weeks before DS1), getting excited and thinking about due dates, and ignoring the whole thing. I can't wait to see my gynaecologist hopefully in a week or so, so I can calm some of my fears.

So happy to read about your approaching due date wtw.
Fingers crossed for blizy and fanjo on the tww.
And I hope today was not too upsetting for you august.

MiaAlexandrasmummy Mon 13-Aug-12 08:40:06

Hello amyboo, congratulations!! And yes, I know those reactions of excitement and wanting to ignore things exactly...

whatever oooh, horrible injections, but for a wonderful cause. You are really on the countdown now.

Had tears in my eyes with Take That, the words seemed so relevant to us all the stars are coming out tonight for you. Yes, they were, for our sparkling, beautiful children. x

KleinePoppet Mon 13-Aug-12 08:52:34

Congratulations amyboo!

august I hope the rest of yesterday passed peacefully for you.
Likewise mecha I hope you are ok.

whatever oh my goodness you are SO nearly there... we are all thinking of you and invisibly holding you up from a distance, whenever you feel like you just can't do it any more... Excited for you! xxx

KleinePoppet Mon 13-Aug-12 08:55:18

X post Miasmummy - so Gary Barlow must have sung, then - I couldn't watch. I saw an online article about how 'brave Gary' was 'putting aside his grief' to take part in the closing ceremony and it made me so upset, I decided not to watch it.
Sounds like they chose an appropriate song, though...

AngelGeorgie Mon 13-Aug-12 10:03:50

Congrats Amy it's very Garda successive pg after our losses but it can be done & it's so worth it .xxx
August hope u re ok? Not to upset? Xxx
Whatever shame your steriod injection hurt ... Mine were totally fine... 48 little hours ....nearly there xxx
Blizy hope the 2 WW passes quickly...
Hi all: love to all xxxxx
Nice day off ... Just chilling ... Nice quiet weekend ... Really enjoyed the closing ceremony last night apart from the Spice girls they were a big disappointment... Sounded crap. Really felt for Gary Barlow ... Words were very poignant ... Poor man xxxx

Whatevertheweather Mon 13-Aug-12 10:44:21

Thanks ladies. Back in today for 2nd injection, ctg and other pre op stuff today. Had a panic at 3am - woke up to get a drink and suddenly was stood in a big puddle of liquid!! Thought my waters had gone so popped a pad in but absolutely nothing else has leaked and no contractions or show so am assuming it must have been wee blushblush Though i didn't wake up needing the toilet - had only been an hour before. Will mention it at the hospital just in case. Will be off to the cemetery later as Erin's stone is being put up today.

Love to all xx

fanjodisfunction Mon 13-Aug-12 12:37:25

wtw what did it smell like? Funny question maybe but I think waters smell very sweet. But thinking about it -m sure something similar happened to me, maybe baby is laying on your bladder and your muscle has stopped working. Good luck hun.

Moominsarescary Mon 13-Aug-12 12:53:13

wtw I had something similar with ds2, gush of water but then nothing else. It was my back waters. Hope injection goes well. The first hurt me more than the second.

amyboo congratulations

august I'm thinking of you and Jacob

Two more days untill stitch goes in

Moominsarescary Mon 13-Aug-12 12:55:03
