How are we all ladies?

gomurray Fri 28-Jun-13 17:09:16

Hi Ladies ! I'm just dropping by for a 'me' post. Had 16 week check today and heartbeat was found really quickly grin It was such a relief that I was in floods of tears ! The lovely MW obviously realised how nervous I am so offered another check at 18 weeks and every 2 weeks thereafter smile. I told her that once I have regular movement I won't need the added reassurance but it will be lovely to hear the HB every 2 weeks until that point. She was so lovely, was holding my hand while doing the doppler thingy and kept hugging me afterwards - such a lovely lady, had contact with her during E's birth and also after our loss so she understands our situation. DP was with me and I think he was also surprised when I broke down - I had prob been even more nervous than I had realised myself !

PickledMoomin Fri 28-Jun-13 18:29:25

Lovely Murray grin

And fantastic that you have such an understanding mw. Do you feel reassured?

Mummylimited Fri 28-Jun-13 19:04:02

Awwww Murray that is such a great support for you and fantastic that you will get that reassurance, at least until those kicks really start making their mark. It's great to hear the positive MW stories.

Thanks, as well, for your lovely comments about the blog and the Etsy shop. I have let that slip a lot, but am mainly going to concentrate on Christmas stuff this year and poppies again. If you do want anything, just drop me a message on fb and I can get it made for you.

Come on then moomin where is this blog?

Sorry, I kind of dropped my news and ran the other day. Been trying to get my head around it, while at the same time try to carry on as normal. Not many pg symptoms yet except the crushing tiredness. I am sure the next few weeks are going to drag terribly.

How is everyone else? Where are we all on cycles and stuff?

BuddhaBelly Fri 28-Jun-13 21:04:25

Murray Yey for lovely midwife, yey for heartbeat. I'm not surprised you reacted as you did, it's a huge hurdle to get over. You probably won't relax until your holding your lo in your arms but at least until the movements really "kick" in you've got that reassurance.
Mummy Head in the sand is a brilliant coping mechanism and highly recommended grin
Moomin Have a brilliant flue free weekend grin
Marbles How you doing? Has Dh realised your trying a new technique this cycle? wink

I decided to do OPKs again this cycle (starting to feel a little desperate obsessive again) got a +ve yesterday so at it like bunnies, thank god it's the weekend grin

gomurray Sun 30-Jun-13 21:18:13

Buddha - hope you've had a 'busy' weekend mrs wink. I am sooo hoping this is THE cycle for you xx. You are so right that I won't properly relax until I ave my baby in my arms, but I'm sure that is true for a lot of ladies who have had MCs. For me the big milestone will be 20 week scan as that is where it all went wrong before. Also, 18 week HB check will be significant as it was estimated that although we found out our baby had died at 20 weeks, he had died at approx 17 weeks. Had a LOAD of EWCM this morning so all reassurance went out of the window sad, trying so hard to be sensible and retain PMA ! Feeling ok about it now, but was very negative this morning arghhh !

Mummy - I'll message you in a few months and place an order for some decorations. Too early now as I'll only lose them ! That said, I don't want to leave it too late as will hopefully be busy with pre-baby stuff in Nov grin

Moomin - how many days/weeks until summer holidays for you ? Schools here are off - E has finished pre-school and is all set for school n 6 weeks - WTF !!! When you off to Florida ?

In other news, we decided that to celebrate all being well on Fri we would book a holiday just before E starts school,so we are off to Gran Canaria for 10 days in August - only 5 weeks to go ! Woohoooooo grin

BuddhaBelly Tue 02-Jul-13 11:07:25

Murray Have you got a date for the 20 week scan yet? Or have I missed that somewhere? Recovering from my "busy" weekend wink so look out for obsessive symptom spotting!
Marbles Quiet? You ok?
Moomin Did you have a lovely break with C?
Mummy How are you? Suffering or not too bad?

Hay fever is driving me crazy at the moment confused anyone else suffering? Felt like ripping my face off at the weekend. Bit extreme I know but rraaagghhh!

gomurray Tue 02-Jul-13 20:34:03

Buddha, no face ripping off when your have EWCM !!! Must be on form for TTC wink, do you think you've ov'd now ?

I have 20 week scan on 26th July - will be 20+4 smile

where is everyone ?

PickledMoomin Wed 03-Jul-13 10:51:57

Hay fever driving me crazy too.

Am currently sat in gynae waiting room. They initially put me in oncology but then realised I was in the wrong area <phew>

I have a very nervous tummy blush

gomurray Wed 03-Jul-13 18:45:00

How did it go Moomin ?

PickledMoomin Wed 03-Jul-13 19:33:08

Fine. She had a poke and a look at my cervix. No abnormality. No need for laparoscopy at this time. She wants me to take a combined pill but can't prescribe it because I have an oestrogen allergy. Coil has been suggested

How are you all?

BuddhaBelly Thu 04-Jul-13 06:28:40

Moomin Good news that all is ok grin hopefully after the coil no more knees bent, legs apart and relax wink How are the flies?
Murray Not too long to wait for the scan, are you feeling movements yet?

Where's everyone else? Deserted us? I've had an awful couple of days, stupidly I missed 2 days of happy pills and boy did I know about it. Headaches and dizziness Tuesday so much so had to come home from work, yesterday emotional mess crying and not coping with some RL shit that grown at us. Lets good today is better as ads kick back in. Now I realise how much I need them which makes me a little hmm but at least they're doing their job well smile What a muppet won't be forgetting again!
I'm going to be covering a new job when my colleagues on holidays and managing 11 staff so I need my wits about me shockgrin

PickledMoomin Thu 04-Jul-13 08:16:41

The flies have gone(touch wood). Have the men coming tomorrow to possibly take up my lovely Victorian mosaic hallway tiles and fix the water pipe sad
