For pregnant berries at any stage. Scary thought but this is the one where some babies will appear!

but actually they are right! aargghh! think im in denial!! grin

29 weeks (almost!) I am excited to get to 30 too!

Foodylicious Thu 13-Mar-14 07:10:41


kitty excited for you!!!
My best comment from last week was "oh eating again, ha ha?" she was lucky I didn't put my fork in her eye as I hadn't actually started eating yet and pissing me off before I eat is not a good idea grin
Also had "wow you look really Pregnant today!" response -I should bloody hope so, I have been for 6 months!
"It's definitely a girl 'cause you put weight all over with a girl" - cheers for that!
"its a boy, I can tell by the shape" - thanks for checking

Went to yoga last night, but wish i didn't bother, i was too tired to do it properly and bump was really sore/tender. Seems to get that way when I am tired sad. Could not even get comfy for the relaxation at the end.

Slept a bit better last night though even if awake much earlier than I need to as in life support training today and it does not start till 9.

Now working Friday as its just to bust to be out of office for 4 days. Got 3 days weekend next 2 weeks though so looking forward to that.

Foodylicious Thu 13-Mar-14 07:15:50

Me too puppy, still just over 3 months to go, some days its seems like ages other days I have started to get ' The Fear' aaaahhhhhh!

MotherOfCleo Thu 13-Mar-14 07:50:51

Pulling up a comfy chair for baby watch wink

Tallyra Thu 13-Mar-14 08:34:07

Thanks for the new thread Merk. Had another sleepless night again but couldn't get my head around making a thread at 3am!

I just want to say to you all here how much I appreciate being a berry and having you all to talk to. I have no pg friends nearby and no nct class, so you all mean a lot to me!!!thanks thanks thanks

Brodicea Thu 13-Mar-14 08:36:34

Ha, 'the fear' indeed!

And foody what is it with that bump shape business? As if a tiny foetal penis would mean the whole of your bump would be a different shape?? People are annoying. I am lucky I'm not working around my old colleagues (who were lovely, but very comment-y) or I'd be ripping some heads off. I was always skinny so they'd be gloating at my jowls and cankles now! I hope you feel a bit more rested soon!

I'm off to the Dr today as my chest seems really bad - I am guessing they'll just say 'tough luck Brod that's pregnancy for you'.

Brodicea Thu 13-Mar-14 08:36:56

Ooo X-post tally right back atcha!

Boomgoestheweasel Thu 13-Mar-14 08:53:01

Lovely new thread merk, thanks. You've terrified me now, as if it's the last one for you and probably me but we won't mention that as I'm ignoring the inevitable

Off for moxibustion in a bit, could everyone send me baby-turny vibes please? grin

foody at work it's a longstanding joke to ask which meal I'm eating... ' oh is this your third breakfast or first lunch?' They're just bitter because they can't trough like a pig without feeling overwhelming weightwatchers guilt grin

Hey y'all!

Crikey, this thread will see babies! That's so scary!

Feeling crappy today so taken a days holiday. Think I overdid it yesterday, so tired.

Awwww tally I think we all feel the same, I am so glad I found such a fab group of like minded people. The berries are awesome!!!

11 weeks today, having a what if day, what if next week they do the scan and something's wrong. Can't stop my brain from over thinking.

BlearyeyedLol Thu 13-Mar-14 12:32:52

Marking place for labour watch and holding hand for bunny what if panic!!! We all think that for a long time! Others thunder still think they have no baby so you're not alone grin

Thunderpantsarego Thu 13-Mar-14 14:06:05

I reckon the stats list is pretty much ready to be merged into one?

bunny totally understandable scan fear. Just take one day at a time and try to distract yourself as much as possible.

brod hope it goes well at the doc's and they give you done great pregnancy-friendly cure to get rid of your chest ailments.

Turny vibes to boom

tally we should have had a game of scrabble- I'm usually awake at 3am. Last night it was 3-7.30. Yawn.

CatsCantFlyFast Thu 13-Mar-14 14:10:07

Keep us posted boom

Anybody got any thoughts on vitamin K after birth?

Brodicea Thu 13-Mar-14 14:21:47

Oh yes, turn vibes indeed for boom!

Hmm, vitamin K: I think I will go with it and let them do the injection, I don't have strong feelings against it; although part of me thinks mother nature will probably have it sorted, I can't see there being convincing evidence that it's a bad thing?

Dr just said I should up my asthma medication, which makes sense. He wants to avoid putting me on the steroidal medication (I thought that was what I already had to be honest!) - if it's still bad in the next few days, I'm to go back. Fair enough.

Lordy only a week until the first berry-baby is due (this generation of course)!!

Bunnygirlie Thu 13-Mar-14 14:51:05

I just split the list by school year, so I guess Jess may fall into the third gen smile

Thank you lol thunder for you hand holds, I guess it's a natural worry that we all have. Just having an icky blah day x

How are you lol? Are all the grads ok?

Hope you chest gets better brod.

Moxibustion?!? Vitamin k?!?

Boomgoestheweasel Thu 13-Mar-14 15:00:53

Well, been moxibusted - not sure what I was expecting, maybe a few wriggles at least but nothing. The lady said hopefully if it works the babies will turn within 24 hours, suspect it will result in nothing but might give it another try if next scan shows they're still breech...

Glad your dr at least did something sensible brod, hope it works.

I'll have the vit K injections I think, like brod says the evidence against it is very poor indeed and the oral vit K is just a waste of time as far as I'm concerned because they tend to puke it up again!

Anyone going for physiological 3rd stage? I've not had the opportunity to discuss this with the dr but I'd like to at least wait for cords to stop pulsing even if it's a section. Sure they'll think I'm a crazy hippy grin

Bunny I still get the what-ifs every time I go for a scan! But have a hand to hold. And HOW have you already got to 11wks?!

Boomgoestheweasel Thu 13-Mar-14 15:02:52

Ha bunny you'd like moxibustion, it's off the scale of odd things to do in pregnancy. Basically they wave smouldering mugwort I want to call them Hogwart sticks at your little toes to encourage the babies to turn round. And no, I'm not joking - supposed to activate certain acupressure points to do with your pelvis I think!

Boomgoestheweasel Thu 13-Mar-14 15:14:25

Oh and Kitty yes we should def have a little photo-share, I'll let you know when mine are ready! Argh dreading seeing them now....

Thunderpantsarego Thu 13-Mar-14 17:09:16

boom I'm going for physiological third stage. And they don't do early clamping here as a matter of course but I've requested delayed clamping if I need a c-section as well.

I haven't read about vit k- need to do so, but injection certainly sounds most sensible to me if you do go for it.

Tallyra Thu 13-Mar-14 17:45:38

I think they don't do early clamping here either, it was definitely mentioned to wait in my one day of talks. Vit K seems like an ok thing to go with and I haven't made up my mind about the third stage yet but I think I'm leaning towards no injection. If all goes to plan I'll be in the pool still and might not even notice it.

Bunnygirlie Thu 13-Mar-14 18:33:46

Crikey that is odd, moxibustion sounds like an exercise class.

I am feeling really grotty today, really fed up with it all. I thought I'd be prepared with feeling so bad after suffering with nausea on and off for 10 years but it's just hideous, like a daily hangover. DH is great and sympathetic one minute and then drives me crazy the next as I have to be the one that thinks about, sorts and cooks the dinner even when I feel like this, aaaaaaagh! Oh gosh I am so fed up of feeling awful, I can't concentrate at work which is causing me stress, I just want to cry!

Feel bad whining when you are all so much further along and have so much more to worry about.Sorry it's all me me me
