Merry Christmas you lot! X

Merry Christmas everyone!

All I can say is thank god I'm pregnant as stepsister decided to announce her pregnancy over the dinner table last night - fiancé proposed a toast to their unborn child. hmm. Could have been a very difficult moment.

YikesHereWeGo Tue 25-Dec-12 13:19:35

Merry Christmas everyone! You're all fab!!
lol, jolly - the toast story made me chuckle grin I bet there have been loads of Xmas 'announcements' throughout the land, some more well received than others wink

Happy Christmas lovely ladies

Jollyb Thu 27-Dec-12 21:30:39

Hi all - hope everyone is recovering from the chaos of Christmas.

Had my booking appointment today - the midwife had a horrid computer system which meant I had to answer a series of yes/no questions for every bloody MC .

Feeling lousy at the moment. Sickness has returned big style. I know I shouldn't be complaining but I don't do nausea! I had a couple of days of feeling better over Xmas (which of course freaked me out) but now grotty again. Not looking forward to work tomorrow.

Anyhow enough moaning from me. Hope you're all well

backwardpossom Fri 28-Dec-12 17:19:43

Hope you feel a bit better today, jolly? I'm shattered today - Christmas comedown I think. DS is still as high as a kite... I'm 30 weeks today, can you believe it?! 9 weeks to go.

WildeRumpus Sat 29-Dec-12 10:14:18

hello ladies, just to say that I hope you all had lovely christmasses and wish you all new year conceptions! smile

I am sorry I don't post much any more. I do lurk now and then but tbh I feel weird spraffing on about my pregnancy because I remember how painful I found other pregnancies after mc. Quickly tho, am 20 weeks now with a wriggly little boy smile So lucky!

I hope if nothing else that people can take heart from the fact I had three mc's in a year (after a healthy, problem free pregnancy and birth with DS) then boom, this mite came along. Am still nervous... but the scans show a healthy baby and I get regular kicks so have to admit I am more relaxed and actually, today after the scan, I am actually happy and starting to bond properly.

I would like to thank you all for looking after me when I was so down after the mc's and ttc. It meant the world! thanks

Hello everyone, just a quickie to say a delayed Happy Christmas and I hope everyone is doing OK. Wilde, it's wonderful that your pregnancy is going so well. Two boys, how lovely! They will be such good friends.

AFM, I'm 24+3 today, and feeling very relieved that I've reached official viability, even though I know my little girl would be very poorly if she was born now. I'm really tempting fate by buying baby clothes in the sales, but I am resolved to be very positive from here on in so I've bought quite a few things. It'd better be a girl now though!

Jollyb Tue 01-Jan-13 18:54:50

Happy New Year everyone - may 2013 bring everyone lots of luck, BFPs and healthy babies.

wilde a little boy - how lovely.

Had another bleed on Monday - very sudden and fresh red blood. Contacted EPU straight away and earliest they can scan me is on Thurs. Was not very happy but hey ho. Bleeding settled down - brown spotting now so very similar to my bleed at 6 weeks so hoping all ok.

Just as I was beginning to relax into this pregnancy . . . . .

Polka2 Tue 01-Jan-13 21:17:13


jolly hope the bleeding/anxiety settles down, I'm sure Thursday seems a fecking long wait!

wilde and lurcher I can't believe how the weeks have flown by, YEY to viability, keep those positive vibes going wink

AFM had my appt with the NHS specialist who's going to fudge things so I can have the investigative tests done even tho we've 'only' suffered two losses, which is good news. confused

She's also told me to take baby aspirin all thru' TTC and as when I get a BFP thru pg too, she's also said at BFP stage to take progesterone pessaries throughout pg too, that's scaring me a bit as reflexologist reckons I mc cos my body doesn't cope with progesterone surges traditional or alternative? Who knows best?

I'm day 32 of the WTF cycle, I weakened and tested on day 28 and it was bfn so god only knows what's going on! confused

I hope 2013 beings lots if viable pgs and BFPs for one and allwink

Polka2 Tue 01-Jan-13 21:18:57

I'm day 42 not 32(!) and tested day 38 previously! Duh!

HJBeans Tue 01-Jan-13 23:37:41

Happy 2013, all. Hope it's a good year for you all.

Sorry you've got continuing stressful bleeding, jolly, and that you need to wait so long to have a scan. Hope its some comfort that it's happened before in this pg and all was well, but can well understand that's not much help until you can be checked out. Will be thinking of you and hoping for the best.

pebspop Wed 02-Jan-13 09:55:14

polka my wft cycles have always lasted for at least 6 weeks - the longest being 12 weeks. i don't think i ov in that cycle either as i never get EWCM. i wait for first af before ttc.

jolly hope you are ok and managing not to worry too much before tomorrow. these babies don't like us to relax do they?!

I am 26 weeks now. had a scan last week which was fine. i am feeling movements but mainly when i lie down with my hands pressed against my stomach. i think this is due to my anterior placenta. i was starting to relax but the old anxiety feelings are sneaking back in. starting to worry myself about the kicking even though i can feel it. i am crazy! my midwife is coming on monday so will speak to her about it.

i bought a few baby gros last week so maybe that is what has got me worried. i should have waited.

Jollyb Wed 02-Jan-13 12:00:38

polka glad things are moving forward for you. It's interesting that your consultant recommended the progesterone - mine was quite adamant that it wouldn't help. From other forums it does seem to be fairly commonly used though - so who knows!

pebs. Babygros - well done you! Next you'll be buying a pram. Glad everything is going ok though. Am sure your movements will become more pronounced soon. I had an anterior placenta with DD and never had the 'keep you awake at night' movements that my NCT friends had but I worked out what was normal for me. I had to go in for monitoring a couple of times but was never made to feel I was wasting anyone's time.

hj are you back home now? How are you feeling?

No more red bleeding here - very light brown spotting so not too worried about scan tomorrow. Still feeling very nauseous so fingers crossed all is ok.

pebspop Wed 02-Jan-13 13:29:42

funny you should say that jolly my friend is selling a barely used travel system for a bargain price so i might be getting it! just need to see her to find out more about it. that will be scary!

lurcherlover Wed 02-Jan-13 18:37:09

I bought my double buggy today pebs - got a bargain (I hope) from eBay. That feels like a real "up yours" to Fate - I'm looking forward to collecting it but also a bit nervous...

Everything crossed for you tomorrow jolly - how many weeks are you now? Still feeling nauseous is a good sign so I'm sure all will be fine.

Dorita75 Wed 02-Jan-13 19:19:22

Fingers crossed for you jolly though sounding hopeful that red bleed is stopping, glad you've got a scan to reassure yourself.

How are the 2ww-ers? AF due here on Friday...been symptom spotting ever since my boobs hurt running down the stairs 10 days ago though that didn't last so probably just one of those things. It's turned me into a right metaller this month though which I hope doesn't equal bigger let down than normal if AF turns up. Got next appointment at Liverpool women's next week though to see if we get put on an IVF list or not...

Happy New Year to everyone!! x

InsomniaQueen Thu 03-Jan-13 01:04:08

Hello moshpitters!!!! Long time now metal!!!

Glad to see so many of you are doing well since my last check (DD is now 9 months old) and that we have a few more mosh pit graduates!!

Keeping fingers crossed for all of you in the TTC phase, scan panic stage and kick counting madness. Hoping that all your metalling is worth while and we have lots more positive news on the the thread for 2013.

Love and hugs from casaIQ xxx

Moominsarescary Thu 03-Jan-13 09:17:21

Hello all, hope everyone had a good Christmas
jolly good luck with the scan, hope all is ok x

Just over 34 weeks here, stitch comes out a week Friday. I packed my hospital bag yesterday and finished buying what we needed over Christmas. Still can't believe he will be here in the next 5 weeks though and maybe as soon as next week! shock

Jollyb Thu 03-Jan-13 11:42:54

Phew scan fine. 10+3 now. The edge of the placenta was quite close to the cervix and the Sonographer thought it could be from there.

moomins great to hear how you're doing and that the stitch has done its job.

lurcher congrats on the pram purchase.

dorita fingers crossed for the 2ww

Moominsarescary Thu 03-Jan-13 12:36:39

That's good news jolly

It's odd, I've spent all these months hoping for it to stay in and now it's getting so uncomfortable I can't wait for them to take it out!

lotsofcheese Thu 03-Jan-13 13:20:48

Great news jolly and perhaps an explanation behind the spotting.

dorita good luck with your appointment. Hopefully you'll have some options to consider after.

I had my 20 week scan yesterday (nearly a week late). I am feeling increasingly less neurotic about m/c now (thanks to bubba's frequent movement) & had to get back into "scan mode" again - preparing for the worst. I guess m/c leaves you with fear & uncertainty - I am taking it 1 day/week at a time. The concept of a take-home baby is still a long way off....

Good luck to all the ttc ladies & to those in the 12 week wilderness - will be keeping everything crossed for you! Xxx

Clairey2012 Thu 03-Jan-13 18:18:18

Hi ladies.x
I finaly had my af on the 15th of Dec, only 3 days long tho. Hoping to get my BFP this month Jst not sure when I will ovulate. Do you rekon I will have to wait another 7 weeks to get my Af of will the time decrease. hoping I will ovulate soon, jst gota persuade the hubby to do the deed every other nite. HMMMMMMMM. lol.

HJBeans Thu 03-Jan-13 19:05:16

So glad to hear your scan went well, jolly, and that there may be an innocuous explanation for the bleeding. Will they be monitoring the placement of the placenta as you go along, or is it a wait for symptoms then scan sort of situation?

I'm well, thanks. Back to the UK last Saturday, though travelling to see friends over New Years since Sunday and only get back home a few hours before my scan at 10w2. Starting to get a bit anxious, though far less so than I would have been without that scan to investigate spotting at 8w. Know what you mean by 'getting into scan mode', cheese.

Has been good to see friends and keep my mind off the scan to come, though have been discussing pregnancy with lots of optimism and, I realise, beginning to believe it might just work this time - and that in itself makes me anxious.

Rubbish internet connection here, so apologies for no name checking, but best of luck to all on the 2ww and congrats to those taking concrete steps to get ready for a new arrival. Roll on a happy 2013.
