Hand holding, fish slapping and general bat shit craziness :-)

OneLittleToddleTerror Tue 22-Jul-14 20:29:55

Oh you are here. I will delete the one I started. I didn't know I posted the last 1000th message.

MrsGiraffe12 Tue 22-Jul-14 20:33:25

You can delete this one if you like, I didn't see you started one onetoddler x

OneLittleToddleTerror Tue 22-Jul-14 20:42:33

Lets keep bumping this one. I have 'reported' the other one. That's how you get it deleted? Actually I have no idea.

MrsGiraffe12 Tue 22-Jul-14 21:09:28

Even though I've got 7 weeks left I think it will be about 3 or 4 xx

Alb1 Tue 22-Jul-14 21:32:08

Woop I'm 2nd, although looks like mrsg or squiz could beat me to it. Is there a group that people go to after here? Everyone who's had babies while iv been on here has dissapeared after giving birth obviously but I can't imagine leaving the thread n not having anywhere to post after here! I bet some of the thread grads still lurk here occasionally, I no id have to to see how everyone's getting on!

Babytinx11 Tue 22-Jul-14 21:36:47

Oh the panic then lol

tannyLoo Tue 22-Jul-14 21:46:50

Marking my place, and I am last on the stats list! Feels like a long way to the top...

I braved phoning my midwife team today, so watch everything start to go wrong. does this qualify me for the first fish slap of the new thread?!?

squizita Tue 22-Jul-14 22:22:53

Marking place!

Alb I'm hoping minisquiz isn't too early- got a bedroom to paint and a house to declutter or she'll be unimpressed with mummy's housewifery skills!

fedupofrainydays Tue 22-Jul-14 22:25:14

Yes tanny
Slimy smelly haddock slapping you round the chops!

Thanks for new thread mrs g.

Really thirsty tonight. nothing to do with the bag of kettle chips I put away

fedupofrainydays Tue 22-Jul-14 22:26:02

alb think saggy set up a Facebook group but not sure. No idea of there is a mumsnet thread!

Babytinx11 Tue 22-Jul-14 22:29:57

Some one give me a fish slap for freaking about tomorrow's scan can't sleep I just keep thinking it's all going to have gone wrong tomorrow sad

tannyLoo Tue 22-Jul-14 22:54:41

Baby I'll tear off a bit of the haddock and lob it over but I'm hoarding the rest scan fear is understandable in our deranged delicate state. FX for you tomorrow...

Babytinx11 Tue 22-Jul-14 23:06:49

tanny I think deranged covers it lmao thank you that made me smile will update after my scan in the morning smile

HopefulHamster Wed 23-Jul-14 00:12:09

It's normal to worry about scans, I've been petrified about every one, even the gender scan, expecting they'd tell me something was wrong. I also cry in every one smile

AddictedToRadley Wed 23-Jul-14 02:44:02

Wow! Just spent almost 6 hours catching up on the last thread and this one since I last posted! Crikey it moved fast!!

Welcome all newbies and congrats for all the great scan results. Sorry to hear there has been a few loses since I was last on and hoping to see you all here again as soon as you feel ready.

I have loads to update but am now so tired after my mammoth catch up session that I can barely keep my eyes open (mind you as soon as I try to sleep I know I'll be wide awake again!! Grrrr). So just to quickly say that all is going well with me I think and I will be having another scan on Thursday (my fourth so far) when I will be 11 weeks or 11+4 depending on which dates I go by! Our DS will get to see his sibling move on the screen for the first time and he's super excited!! Mind you having him go with us is worrying me now. Although I really want him to be there (and we have no other choice as he's broken up from school), I'm also worried incase things go wrong.

I'm also desperate to hear baby's heart beat but apparently the majority of Yorkshire hospitals don't listen to heartbeats as they believe it emits a slight heating pulse that may cause mc. They 'look 'at the heartbeat (like you would a moving ECG) but won't actually 'listen' to it until after 12-14 weeks because of the risks. Has anyone else heard of this?

Oh and one other thing before I fall asleep! I've been having really vivid dreams that DP is cheating on me!!!!!! I know he wouldn't do that he values his manhood too much but I guess I must be really scared about it inwardly. I was the same with DS though and was convinced he would leave me!! I keep waking up crying and getting almost hysterical with relief when I see DP beside me! These hormones are no fun!

Good luck to everyone with a scan this week.

AddictedToRadley Wed 23-Jul-14 02:53:48

Hopeful It's VERY normal to worry about scans after MC. I think everyone on here worried about an upcoming scan from a few days before right up to a panic as their name was called. Try to stay positive and FX all will be well smile

AddictedToRadley Wed 23-Jul-14 02:55:41

Sorry Hopeful I thought you'd said 'Is it normal' as opposed to 'It's normal'. I'm sorry I'll blame it on being so tired after so much reading that I completely misread your post! Apologies flowers

MrsGiraffe12 Wed 23-Jul-14 07:04:34

Alb I expect you will be first if you are due first, I'm only going on what happened with my first, ie headaches and swelling with plus 2 protien and BP around 138/70-84 for a few weeks then boom, full blown pre eclampsia and emergency c section at 32 weeks as I was fitting over night. This pregnancy seems to be heading the same way, started to swell this week, 10lb weight gain in a week, +2 protien and headaches. BP is still in the upper end of normal and bloods came back fine but I have a sinking feeling lol.

To all those worrying, I understand totally, scan doom etc is a very recurrent theme on here, then the worry between scans etc. One of the joys of bring pregnant after loss unfortunately :-(

GailLondon Wed 23-Jul-14 07:14:24

Morning everyone! Thanks for the new thread!

I'm having the day off work as I just can't stop puking long enough to get in the car (bleurgh). Really hoping this eases off soon.

fedupofrainydays Wed 23-Jul-14 07:20:06

Just cried on the way to the station. Paranoid I. Aught listeria from old salad. Sounds stupid as I write it but genuinely worried. I woke up with a cold and that's one of the symptoms. Or it's a virus I picked up off my friends kid - she didn't tell me she had been sick and had diarrhoea and only when she came out on a rash did she think to mention it hmm not cross with her really as could have just been anything but still, got me in another flap.
Need a fish slap. I've just got a cold right?

fedupofrainydays Wed 23-Jul-14 07:24:11

Ps. Good luck for those having scans. I can relate to the fear and doom far too well. Thinking of you xx

tannyLoo Wed 23-Jul-14 07:35:37

Fedup, sounds like a cold. x

Babytinx11 Wed 23-Jul-14 07:45:26

fedup it could even be something like hayfever I've had it this year and it can feel like the flu not sure if that's a smiley face moment or not but I'm sure it's nothing nasty smile

Getting ready for my scan now then I have been ordered to call the midwife to make my booking app although even though I was excited when they 1st I needed to book soon now I just don't feel ready sad last time they booked me at 7 weeks which made it all very real and I'm not sure I am ready for it again sad but the positive side of me says that I'm going to have a baby so there is no need to worry.

Does anyone know if I can choose to book at a hospital further away than my local one we've moved since DS and I have heard nothing but awful things about the local maternity unit sad
