If we can't be positive about the weather what can we be? grin

Welcome posters new and old.

I had two miscarriages two months in a row! I conceived again on the 3rd month and now 18 weeks along with a healthy baby boy!

BertieBotts Sun 11-Feb-18 20:32:45

Ah welcome Nikki, glad your pregnancy is going well.

Checking in to mark my place, am 39 weeks now. It’s all a bit surreal!

Just checking into the new thread - thanks for starting it, bertie! Had a really bleak morning where I felt so anxious and so convinced something is about to go wrong that I ended up storming out of the house, having got cross at DH about absolutely nothing, and walking around with no coat in the cold for an hour. Feeling a bit better now, but have been surprised at how hard this latest wave of worry has hit.

Just hopping on the new thread.

I'm sorry you've had an anxious day today lisa. Tomorrow is a new day.

At the moment I'm feeling surprisingly positive in the run up to my dating scan on Thursday. Let's hope it lasts and isn't misplaced.

Well my anxiety is back through the roof again. I'm convinced the movement I've felt for the past 3-4 weeks is getting weaker.
The zika doubts are still floating around in my head to, especially as markers for them won't be visible until 28 or 32 weeks (currently almost 25).
I just know if this was meant to be I'd be able to visualise the happy ending and I can't.

I'm also being pressured into telling colleagues and I'm really not ready to because I don't want to be forced to chat about a pregnancy that I'm already extremely anxious about with people who have either had perfect pregnancies or no kids yet. (manager already knows).

Marking my place! On hols in New York at the moment so not online as much. X

Thanks for starting the thread @BertieBotts!

To get into the posifrickenspring spirit I am 33 weeks tomorrow and starting to feel like this might actually happen! Come on little Easter chick I just want you in my arms.

MsJuniper Mon 12-Feb-18 05:08:49

@zaalitje hope you are ok - I felt a lot like that six weeks ago as it's a bit of a "so near and yet so far" stage. Time seemed to drag so slowly and the end result seemed impossible to visualise. It really doesn't have any bearing on what's going on in there though (think how many of us had happy thoughts of the future before our first mc). The Zika worry must add an extra layer of worry I'm sure. Hope the weeks pass quickly and the fears are unfounded.

Niketan Mon 12-Feb-18 05:50:56

Marking my spot. 6 weeks along today or there abouts. Two weeks until I go to see the doctor and hope to have an early scan (overseas so all private here). Had a MMC at about 7+4 last time so thought we would go in after that so at least we know whether we got past where we did last time - but the waiting is killing me and wondering whether to bring it forward a week. Feeling pretty nauseous on and off all day - that weird mixed feeling of relief of having some symptoms but also feeling so tired and sick that its a bit miserable. Positive and calm thoughts to everyone...x

ek78 Mon 12-Feb-18 06:37:49

Hi folks, Can I join? Just got my BFP this morning, six months after my mc. Over the moon and terrified.

keeponrunning85 Mon 12-Feb-18 08:13:47

Welcome ek78! And tentative congratulations.

As predicted my zen like calm has not lasted. Was awake fretting from 5am for an hour and a half. Roll on Thursday!

BlueeSpottyTiger Mon 12-Feb-18 08:24:21

I get really anxious too! It's the worst sad
Since the day after my scan on the 3rd (16+1, Second baby) I've been feeling him kick and wriggle loads so that has really helped settle my mind. I'm 17+2 now and I'm feeling much more positive. Just dreading the 20 week scan on the 1st.

Welcome to the New ladies, sorry for your losses. Lot's of luck for your little ones xx

fidgetsmumx Mon 12-Feb-18 09:33:55

Found you guys! smile

My sickness has gotten ridiculous, I’m sick 3 times a day at the moment and the dry retching in a morning has caused me to tear my throat so there’s the odd bits of blood in there too sad
Anyone else experienced this?

itsgoingtoofast Mon 12-Feb-18 10:00:11

Thanks Bertie thanks

Thanks so much for the new thread, bertie - like the title.

I’m struggling at the moment, I was feeling positive but it’s faded. I’m 16w today, have a sex scan on Saturday, and it’s nearly the due date for my last MMC. I’m dreading the scan, at the same time I’m desperate for it. Really thought things would get easier rather than harder at this point.

So sorry for others feeling worried and anxious. It’s very hard being open about pg, zaa when people expect you to be happy and engage in baby chit chat.

mogul so close! I can’t remember, was it you that said they won’t do a sweep until 40w?

And juniper, getting close too!

I missed the end of the last thread so sorry if I missed scan news etc.

fidgets - that’s really tough. Have you found the HG support thread? I have HG, though it’s getting much better, and have found lots of great advice on the thread. How many weeks are you? If you’re not keeping anything down then do buy some ketostix at the pharmacy so you can check your levels of dehydration. I found liquids harder to keep down than food... ice lollies, sometimes milk, fizzy water with cordial, all worth trying. And do see your GP.

@LisaSimpsonsbff I think we're at very similar number of weeks (I'm 18+1 today). I've been terribly anxious the last week. I'm gearing up to my 20 week scan and I'm convinced they're going to tell me it's another MMC. Sending you a handhold.

Smurf123 Mon 12-Feb-18 15:06:56

Thanks bertie for the new thread..
I haven't posted in a while. Had a busy time with work and an inspection last week (teaching) buy now I am off on mid term and maternity leave then. I think finishing for maternity leave Brought my anxiety back.. been for scan today (they are keeping an eye on placenta and growth) all looking good so far. Booked in for c-section on 16th March when I will be 39 weeks exactly - baby is currently measuring 90th + percentile.. Been told that even if I go naturally doc reckons I have a 50/50 chance of needing emergency section due to my height and build.. I'm 5ft.
Hope everyone is keeping well. Juniper not long to go!!

LisaSimpsonsbff Mon 12-Feb-18 18:22:32

We're almost identical stages AKP - I'm 17+6. I'm finding this period a lot harder than I thought I would - I think I thought it would get continually easier, but while I had a good patch after my scan at 13 weeks, now I feel in limbo again. I haven't felt movement yet and don't expect to for quite a while (it's my first and I have an anterior placenta) so I feel so worried that something has gone wrong and I wouldn't know.
