Hi @mrsjkerry, thanks for creating the new thread 😀

TheLionQueen1 Sun 23-Jul-17 19:52:59

Helllooooo...thanks MrsJ, we've got through a lot of these threads so far haven't we! Wondering how many we'll be on when baby makes an appearance!

@TheLionQueen1 I was thinking the same, this little one has being doing backflips all day

TheLionQueen1 Sun 23-Jul-17 20:03:12

Ew it's very odd isn't it?! I watched baby do what I can only assume was a Mexican wave when I was in the bath! He wriggled completely from my right to my left side, was very very weird to watch! I keep thinking, if he's already running out of space what's he going to do for the next 11 weeks 😂

Hi everyone 👋🏻 I've just worked up the courage to dip my toe into a pregnancy thread! It's still early days (hence the nerves) but I'm officially late for AF so here I am. Currently 4 weeks, officially due on 31st March according to dates, however due to a previous operation it has been recommended that I have a c section at around 38 weeks so looking at the middle of March sometime.

It's my first, conceived on first month ttc so am in a permanent state of shock! Have been getting lots of nausea, tiredness and low back aches. I'm a bit concerned about the back aches, I've had them since about 8 dpo on and off almost daily. Anyone else had this?

mrsjkerry Sun 23-Jul-17 20:11:07

Hi @WaitingTillJuly17. One of my earliest symptoms was back ache. Like a terrible ongoing period pain that lasted for weeks. It disappeared around 8 weeks and has recently popped its head back up! I'm 24+3 now.

ew1990 Sun 23-Jul-17 20:15:39

@TheLionQueen1 I can only describe it as feels like she's doing the worm 😂😂 I've had the bath experience it was very weird to watch I had to get out of the bath 😂😂

@WaitingTillJuly17 congratulations. The only symptoms I had early pregnancy was period like aches, I know how scary they can be but I'm currently 24+1 now so try not to worry

TheLionQueen1 Sun 23-Jul-17 20:25:04

Congrats and welcome WaitingtillJuly!

mrsjkerry Sun 23-Jul-17 20:27:49

I can't see any movement really but definitely lying in the bath and certain positions on the sofa feels like a fish flopping in my stomach!

WaitingTillJuly17 Sun 23-Jul-17 20:29:40

Thanks everyone, that's reassuring to hear! Lucky me, with all of you further ahead you'll be able to answer all my questions!

lydiangel83 Sun 23-Jul-17 20:58:06

@WaitingTillJuly17 welcome and congrats!

I've not had any baths to date but will have to do so now just to see if I can get a Mexican wave / worm movement going on :-)

ew1990 Sun 23-Jul-17 21:34:08

I can't remember who said about stomach going into a point of you lie down and tense - but mine has just done it when I went from lying down to sitting up in the bath, looked like a cone

Hi everyone! I'm really new to this so please forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong place. I just want to find out if anyone has been in a similar situation to me. My first blood test was done 2 weeks ago and I had an eqivocal result meaning there was not enough hcg to confirm pregnancy. My doctor told me I should wait a while and then take another. However on Friday morning I woke up to terrible cramping and bleeding. My husband took me straight away to hospital where I had another blood test done. This time my hcg levels were 351 and they confirmed I was 3-4 weeks pregnant but diagnosed me with "threatened miscarriage". My appoontment with my obgyn is only tomorrow and I am so so worried. I would really love to hear some positive stories to make me feel a Bit better as those words threatened miscarriage are so scary. And the waiting game is so frustrating

@babyb8991 welcome to the group smile
We are all pregnant for the first time so no question is silly, we're all in this together. However I have no experience with your story I'm afraid, all I can say is keep strong and have faith smile And as far as I'm aware a threatened miscarriage doesn't always mean it will end up as a miscarriage, it probably meant that you hcg levels dropped so much that you nearly did but then little one came back fighting! Anyways, wishing you all the luck!

Missonhartbaby Mon 24-Jul-17 18:50:17

@Ew1990 mine does that now and has done for a while (the cone shaped belly!) and it is so freaky!!

TheLionQueen1 Mon 24-Jul-17 20:38:12

I totally hadn't see the cone shaped belly before, and have just done and that's hilarious, amused me far too much!

Anyone following what fruit or vegetable size baby is?! I become a winter squash tomorrow!

Hi everyone, i'm 26 weeks with baby number 1 (and how this preg is going she might wind up being an only child!) I'm a teacher so I've got some time off for the summer and I'm so thankful for that, I'm just so tired right now.

Missonhartbaby Mon 24-Jul-17 21:47:47

According to my app baby is as big as bunch of bananas! I'm 27+6 though so excited to see what he'll be tomorrow! Also I've attached a bump pic... I can't decide if I'm huge... Or if it's quite neat?! What do you think? And show me yours!!

TheLionQueen1 Mon 24-Jul-17 22:18:12

I'm 28+6!

Missonhartbaby Mon 24-Jul-17 22:26:42

@lionqueen Ah only a week ahead!! We could end up having babies on the same day smilesmile also I don't think we're far off the same sort of size to be fair!

TheLionQueen1 Mon 24-Jul-17 22:30:13

I thought that, very similar bumps! The countdown is well and truly on now isn't it!

mrsjkerry Mon 24-Jul-17 22:47:14

Here's mine at 24+4. I feel like it hasn't grown all that much lately!

mrsjkerry Mon 24-Jul-17 22:47:53

I've gained much more substance around my bum and thighs than in the actual bump 😄
