Hi Charlie thanks for the new thread. I'm going for scan today :/

thesmallbear Tue 02-Dec-14 07:40:01

Thanks for the new thread Charlie. I don't think I ever added my stats.
Age, 33.
MMC June 2014. Medical management at 10 weeks, but had been bleeding for a while before then.
Currently pregnant again. Private 8 week scan put the baby measuring slightly ahead of my dates and due July 4th 2015.

Good luck for your scan today ignominious. Is it your 12 week scan?

Thanks for the new thread Charlie.

Good luck with the scan ignonominous - will be thinking of you and hoping all is well.

Smallbear in answer to your question on the old thread my nausea started to fade at 10 weeks and was mostly gone by 11. I had my dating scan at 11+4 and all was well with the baby. I think when the nausea starts and fades is very individual so this could be totally normal for you and this pregnancy and not mean anything bad. I still get the occasional surge of it - which in a weird way is nice because it was a symptom that I found reassuring (having not felt nauseous when I was pregnant when I miscarried.)

When's your scan date? Have you got long to wait to see how things are getting on?

Found the new thread smile I did post on the old one I amback in sad got rushed in last night after the pain just got to much so dosed up on really strong painkillers waiting to find out what if anything they are going to do ��

ignominious Tue 02-Dec-14 09:21:01

No it's my early reassurance scan. 8+2 today. We're at the place but there's a huge queue already. Everyone looks sad.

GailLondon Tue 02-Dec-14 09:33:52

Hello! just checking in. 32 weeks here, in the home straight now!
Feel as big as a whale!

catbus Tue 02-Dec-14 10:04:52

Checking in!
baby oh no- I hope you get some.answers soon and relief for the pain flowers

ignominious Good luck and thinking of you.. flowers

smallbear it's all so individual- I have no nausea today but then a lot of people have it on.and off. It's such a worry when we can't see what's going on- the only thing that works for me is distraction. . smile

Well this morning my sore, full boobs appear to have disappeared so naturally I am assuming the worst blush
This whole first trimester is a complete roller coaster isn't it..

Teeste Tue 02-Dec-14 10:50:08

Hello! I'm 34 with PCOS, DH is 37. I'm currently 11+6 with our second pregnancy, first child. I had an MC in April at 7 weeks. Thankfully, all seems to be going well with this one so far. We've seen the bean with a good heartbeat, rolling over and stretching!

I wanted to ask here - does anyone else feel like they're not bonding properly or as much, or are somehow emotionally distanced, with the pregnancy after mc? I can imagine this is probably normal, but I still worry a bit.

catbus Tue 02-Dec-14 10:59:06

Hello teeste
Yes I think I know exactly what you mean. It's a bit like I have distanced myself from it all, probably through self preservation.
I think as your pregnancy progresses and you start feeling movements etc, it will become.more of a reality and you'll bond a little more every day.
Congratulations btw flowers

charlieis30 Tue 02-Dec-14 11:14:09

Good luck ignominious!

baby hope you're ok, must be scary xx

Yay gail! I love success stories!

6 weeks today woohoo! I am nauseous on & off, but I know from last pregancy it didn't really kick in until 7-8wks. I am SO HUNGRY at the moment, eating a snack every hour or so. Only other symptom at the mo is my newly ginormous (ha TMI sorry) nips which HURT. Glad I had the scan on the weekend, I am still having some crampy pains but it's easier to ignore them now.

Babytinx11 Tue 02-Dec-14 11:33:02

Thanks guys it is scary but I have seen the consultant today and she was fab wants to make sure I am well rather than just coping before I go home means I am stuck here for a bit but as DH said it means I can't do too much it will be nice to feel better in all honesty maybe enjoy the last trimester of this pregnancysmile
Hope your scan goes well ignominious

tannyLoo Tue 02-Dec-14 12:06:10

Just marking my spot. Had a hideous dream last night and still not quite right today.

charlieis30 Tue 02-Dec-14 12:33:17

Sorry to hear that tanny... I had a dream last week that I miscarried... it was so real, I thought it was happening again. Terrifying

thesmallbear Tue 02-Dec-14 13:36:13

Thank you all for reassuring me again! I need to get a grip lol. I saw the baby had a strong heartbeat at my private eight week scan on Thursday. I felt sick then though (but I don't now) so I was wondering if something had happened to bean within the last few days. I don't think any amount of scans will put my mind at rest! I still have the big boobs and the funny taste in my mouth so at least that's something.

Hope you feel well and get to go home soon Baby.

Hope the scan goes well ignominious.

ignominious Tue 02-Dec-14 13:52:20

Scan was ok. Thank god. And thank you for your support everyone. Still got 12 week to get through. I won't believe anything till I get a baby really. Same as you teeste.

Hi everyone, just marking my place on the thread. It's both reassuring but awful that so many of us are feeling anxiety rather than enjoying our pregnancies. I am really struggling to try force myself to worry less (easier said than done). I suppose that's all we can do.

Glad your scan went well ignominious

Brummiegirl15 Tue 02-Dec-14 20:16:02

New thread alert!! Marking my place.

My stats are:

Brummie, 38, TTC1 first mc back in May at 5 weeks. 2nd mc at 9 weeks in August.

Now currently 4+4 and saw docs today to get all confirmed In case it happens again

Sheepishly explained I'd decided to start taking 75mg aspirin. Felt like a naughty school girl but actually he was ok and didn't go batshit crazy. Said that was the first thing they do after 3 x mc's. Only thing to be aware of is that because I haven't been tested, if that's not the cause I could still have a mc.

But I feel I'm giving myself a fighting chance and it's important to me .

Going to book a scan next!!

leanne963 Tue 02-Dec-14 20:45:21

Hello everyone!! I havn't done any stats, i hope i do this right.

Leanne962, 27, TTC1, Had a MMC in June, currently 15 + 2, due May 24th.

Everything so far has been ok, apart from occasional bleeding (think i have a sensitive cervix) but i am still slightly scared.

Been reading up about Pre eclampsia and am worried as i have had previous kidney issues, so have just bought some dipsticks, like i used to have as a child, to test protein levels.

I hope everyone else is doing OK, so hard to remain positive but it CAN be done. That is what i tell myself anyway ha. Going to find out the sex on the 16th, i need something to look forward to :D

blankfornames Tue 02-Dec-14 21:28:09

Just marking my spot. Lovely to see you back again Brummie!

longestlurkerever Tue 02-Dec-14 22:21:22

Hello everyone. Thanks for the new thread Charlie.

Sorry you're still unwell baby. Glad they're looking after you and hope you escape soon.

I have a letter asking me to go in for a repeat urine test at the antenatal clinic. Telling myself they just couldn't get a result from my last one and that there's nothing wrong but also have a voice telling me that there might be...
