Hello everyone, my name is Lucy and I'm 40 years old and 23 weeks pregnant. Looking to connect with other pregnant ladies in Brighton. It would be great to share concerns, worries and of course excitement with someone else going through the same thing.
Hi! How old is your first child? It must be so hard looking after a little one when you are pregnant. On the other hand do you find you are more relaxed about this pregnancy as you’ve been through it before?
It was tough in the heat wasn’t it. I’ve never been so relieved to see overcast weather!
That’s really nice to hear. I have a 6 year step daughter as well, although she doesn’t live with us. She is very excited too. I think 6 is just the right age for them to look forward to it and not be jealous at all.
It doesn’t sound mean at all. I think we just worry more the older we get. I know that’s certainly true for me.
It is my first. They weren’t 100% sure of the sex during my 20 week scan but they thought it was a girl. I’m having another scan tomorrow so hopefully will find out then for sure!
I wasn't fussed what I had but my son really wanted a sister, everywhere we go it's my baby sister this and my baby sister that, it's quite sweet really, I don't think he would've been ready before now
Is your stepdaughter looking forward to being a big sister? I think they feel it's a really important job for them
When are you due? Mine is the 19th July but my son was 18 days early
It’s great you only have a small bump. I’m pretty big already at 5 months so goodness knows how big I’ll be at 9 months! Yes, it’s the first time I’ve ever been happy about rain in the summer.
I don’t blame you having the baby at the Royal Sussex. It’s reassuring to be near all the medical help if needed. Yes, and I’m sure the neighbours wouldn’t appreciate all the screaming. Hee! I have to have it there as I’m having a caesarean.
I can imagine! It can be uncomfortable enough now so at 38 weeks you must be desperate to have her out. The weather is hotting up again too. Well, not too long now though for you. I'm feeling ok but suffering from insomnia at the moment. I haven't slept properly for a few nights. Also, I get so worried when the baby doesn't move for a while although I know at 24 weeks it shouldn't be a problem. It will all be worth it in the end though!
