Anyone due on the 16th of april, that's my b'day. i'm hoping this baby will be 16th Aug as my dh and bf also share 16th (of different months), ds is 14th (nearly) and it doesn't look like LO will make today

EllieG Tue 14-Aug-07 13:36:07

I'm due 19th April uki! Maybe it'll come a bit early (if doesn't fall out in meantime worry emoticon)

EllieG Tue 14-Aug-07 13:37:05

uki you missed me but thats ok coz i don't want to go on it yet!

mrsmcjnr i meant implantation bleeding not just implantation...knew it sounded funy as i typed it lol!!

Uki Tue 14-Aug-07 13:58:19

Welcome Ellie. I really think it helps to be positive, even though you worry about getting attatched and all that. You need to think of that LO growing nice and strong.

MOM- I'm sorry, please ad yourself when your ready then.

I did think I shouldn't ad people, but also know it's hard to take the steps sometimes..
I have my fingers and toes crossed for all of us

MerlinsBeard Tue 14-Aug-07 13:59:06

i haven;t an official date yet anyway Uki, my cycles are random!

Uki Tue 14-Aug-07 14:10:45

MOM- I think my dates are out too, as period was all screwed up after m/c. Can't imagine LO comming on DD but then that doesn't happen often anyway.

I just find it amazing that there is so little we know about pg and birth, like when it will happen, what will happen, how long it will take???

How are u feeling today anyway MOM?

MerlinsBeard Tue 14-Aug-07 14:13:41

mmc made mine random too was always pretty regualr before that.

I'm ok ish. Am extremely tired, hence excess MNing and cbeebies and hiding from the kitchen because the smells in there make me retch.

Not too long left for you now is there?

MrsMcJnr Tue 14-Aug-07 14:16:47

MOM I know hon, just teasing you

Feedmenow Tue 14-Aug-07 14:17:20

Thank for puttin me on Uki. It's a first step for me at least. I am still feeling rather negative, but we have private scan on Thursday afternoon so not long to wait. providing everything is OK then I will add my date. But right now I still have the spots, plus some tummy ache as well. I've had a bit of an unpredictable tummy the last few days so I'm hoping pains are to do with that. I just feel so up and down with it - one minute I'm absolutely convinced that I've already lost this one, and the next I find myself with my hands on my tummy willing strength into it and begging it to be OK.
I got my 12 week scan date through from the hospital this morning, plus a booklet on all the tests they now do. I flicked through it rather half-heartedly cos I was just thinking "whats the point? I won't need it anyway...". And I know I should try and be positive but I am finding it so hard.....
My dear SIL called last night and said she has a little surprise for me on Thurs, do I want it before scan or after scan? I said before cos I won't feel like happy surprises after the scan if news is bad. Why is it so hard for me to do this? What if the pg goes OK but I dont bond because I'm so scared all the time?

EllieG Tue 14-Aug-07 14:53:38

I know it's easy to say, but try to distract yourself feedmenow (that really should be my name - have eaten SO much today is disgusting). I had MMC at 12 weeks (baby died at 8 weeks according to scan) so don't feel I can really 'believe' in this one until I get past that bit and see it moving on screen. Plus I did not have many PG symptons last time and don't have many this time, so there was not much to notice.
Having said that, I am trying not to get too obsessed with symptom-spotting, and trying (with varying degrees of sucess) to chill out until I know I have something to worry about. I cannot allow myself to be positive just yet, so am trying just not to think about it.
You and your beanie will be fine. I have all my limbs crossed for you x

MrsMcJnr Tue 14-Aug-07 16:38:57

Family hug for you Feedmenow Not long until Thursday now and I am sending you tons of good vibes My skin was really bad for the first 10 weeks or so, I’d never had bad skin before and it really got me down, its just the hormones. I also had a bad tummy for weeks, total opposite from the expected constipated but at least you avoid piles this way It is hard hon, it really is, just take each day as it comes and mark things like the scan on Thursday off as mini milestones. By the way, I always expect it to be bad news at every appointment – I think it is a subconscious way of trying to protect yourself because you couldn’t the first time it happened that way.

EllieG – I ate tons in the first few weeks too, it’s the only way to get through the tiredness in my opinion. Hoping that the time doesn’t drag too much until your 12 week scan x

rubles Tue 14-Aug-07 18:31:35

Feedmenow, the worries that you are feeling now are all so completely normal considering what you have been through before. Everyone must differ I suppose, but I think it is fair to say that for most people the worrying is never as intense as those early days and weeks and after that there are another 28 weeks in which to bond with your baby - you'll bond fine.

Those first few weeks are just horrible, horrible, horrible.

MrsMc, I can't remember if I posted a reply to you yesterday about Spain, i think I tried but it might have got lost. I think you'll be fine with the heat when you go - you don't have another little one that you have to entertain so it will be perfect for you to just laze about, reading, staring at your stomach and doing nothing. I managed in the 35 degree heat so you'll definitely be fine.

Good news for me...I am now 'on the bench' (i.e. at home on full pay due to a project ending) and hopefully will continue to be so for the next 5 weeks until my maternity leave starts. Hooray - I don't reckon any other project will want to take me on for such a short period of time so I'm hopeful to have the next 7 weeks at home.

PurpleLostPrincess Tue 14-Aug-07 18:44:26

Wow, that was quick! Hello everybody! I'll have a read up on the old thread and do a catch up later this evening but couldn't wait to just pop in and say a quick hello and give everybody a big hug!

Uki, our anniversary is on 16th (this Thurs). Also, 15th April is a very important date for various reasons in our family xx

((((((((((hugs))))))))))

BellaBear Tue 14-Aug-07 18:54:21

Hi all, I am still here just generally lurking and starting threads about being stressed, hope everyone is well - it is nice to see my name moving up the list!

Feedmenow Tue 14-Aug-07 20:26:25

OK, I'm going to say one last thing and then I'm not posting again til after the scan on Thursday.

I am actually now somewhat convinced that I have already lost this one. The tummy twinges I'm getting are (I'm positive) not like they have been for the past few weeks. And I am getting shooting pains down my legs again, something else I haven't noticed for a few weeks.

Anyway, I know that the only way I'll know is after Thurs scan so I am just going to stop with my obsessing (either/both ways) and wait.

Please keep fingers crossed for me, but don't be surprised if I come back with news.....

Bouncingturtle Tue 14-Aug-07 21:04:10

Feedmenow - I'm going to keep all my fingers and toes crossed for you, that you get good news on Thursday. {{{{{hugs}}}}}
MrsMC - when in spain, drink loads of water - bottled only and don't put ice in your drinks. You'll be fine. Work is sh!t, totally fed up, told DH that when I'm on ML I'll be looking for another job.
UKI - glad you are feeling better, I know a couple of people who about due ad they are equally fed up and impatient!
Bella - we know all about being stressed, it is only natural to worry.
Hello evryone else!
Firststar - glad to see you and ds are getting on well

EllieG Wed 15-Aug-07 09:02:18

Hello all - quick question - is there anything I can take for the rotten heartburn I have today? Am I allowed rennies or anything like that?

rubles Wed 15-Aug-07 09:06:34

Gaviscon double action is what I take. It says on the bottle that you can take it in pregnancy. It seems to work well for me.
I also have the pills - lemon flavour for when at work and sucking on those help too.

EllieG Wed 15-Aug-07 10:27:48

Ta just been to chemist and have big bottle of gaviscon yuk yuk

AnguaVonUberwald Wed 15-Aug-07 10:37:01

Added myself in if thats OK, tend to come on the thread for a bit and then dispear, depending on how I am feeling. Not too bad at the moment - had my first Ante-Natal appointment yesterday so its all starting to seem a bit real. First scan on the 31st of August.

Not sure about my DueDate - around 25th of March is best guess - so will put that in for the moment
