Another new thread for the Nov mums to continue our discussion. It’s nearly time for our dating scans!

BabyKnighty1 Wed 15-Apr-20 10:47:43

I think we have hit the 1000 in the last thread!

My dating scan 1 week today! 😬 I will actually only be 9+4, but my midwife said we have to go by date of my LMP which would put me at 12+3... I did say I had very long and irregular cycles so knew I wasn't that far along but never mind. Just now anxious that I won't get that 12 week confirmation that first trimester is all over safely but will speak to sonographer next week 🤷🏼‍♀️

@cobell my mum also had a tilted womb and had 3 children all born through
C sections. Her children (me as well obviously!) were all between 5.4lb-6.5lb as we ran out of room! But we were all completely fine and her pregnancies were “normal”

Jumping on new thread 😁

@wannabebump and @tiniestsky - the thread I am on for pregnancy after loss is below:

I think it may be nearing the third thread as it is nearly full smile

@cobell I've got a retroverted uterus too, I only found out a few years ago during an internal scan for ovarian cysts. Apparently in most cases by the second trimester it sorts itself out as it grows so big it can't be one way or the other. Very rarely it gets caught in the pelvis but that's very rare. So shouldn't affect our pregnancies or childbirth!

@Rainbowafterthestorm couldn't post this on the old thread so hopefully you see it here - ahh I have a feeling mine might be the same was really hoping it would be in the 12th week so we could tell people sooner sad! Fingers crossed I get my letter by the end of this week.

Just joining the new thread.
I’m 11 weeks tomorrow and today I finally feel “normal”. I hope this is the beginning of the end for my nausea and headaches!

joining in. thread 3 was very busy x

HarrietM87 Wed 15-Apr-20 11:23:28

Hello, thanks for starting the new thread! Feel very happy to be on here - thought I’d be bowing out after this week’s drama!

ParisInTheSpringtime Wed 15-Apr-20 11:25:22

Joining the new thread. @cobell at my last smear I was told I have a “wonky cervix” (clearly a technical term...). I wonder if that means I will have the same thing? I guess I will find out.

Pink15 Wed 15-Apr-20 11:28:01

@ParisInTheSpringtime during my smear they also said she had trouble finding my cervix dunno what that means 🤷‍♀️😂

Thanks for all the replies about PJs!

SqidgeBum Wed 15-Apr-20 11:30:11

It's so good you are here @HarrietM87. I was thinking of you most of yesterday and hoping you would get good news. I must say it did all sound worrying. Its crazy how invested you get in people on this thread you have never met. At 12 weeks, once I have my scan and (fingers crossed) I can actually let myself think about this baby as being long term, I hope to join the facebook group and start putting some faces to names.

Thanks for new thread. I had my booking appt over the phone and fine. Will be consultant led which I was expecting. Got to go in on Monday for bloods and urine. Should get 12 week scan letter by week 10. No husband but I was obviously expecting that.

Just got signed off work, the HG is really ramping up... Oh well 32 weeks to go!

HarrietM87 Wed 15-Apr-20 11:48:08

@ParisInTheSpringtime I have a very posterior cervix - it’s really hard for them to find when I have smears etc and I couldn’t have sweeps during my last pregnancy as they couldn’t reach it! (It does move throughout the month but mine doesn’t seem to move much). But my uterus is totally normal and no issues in pregnancy.

seventhrow Wed 15-Apr-20 11:56:41

The mention of consultant-led care reminds me of a question... I've checked my notes and I'm shared between consultant and midwife. Is that the normal way of things? Do any women have solely midwife-led care?

HarrietM87 Wed 15-Apr-20 11:58:31

@seventhrow in my hospital every patient gets a named consultant who is listed in your notes, but most won’t see them unless there are any issues. Even though I have various issues where consultant led care is recommended (hypothyroidism and recurrent miscarriage) I didn’t actually see one in my last pregnancy - everything was through the midwives.

bluebell94 Wed 15-Apr-20 12:02:12

@seventhrow I'm solely midwife led but I think I signed something at my booking appt to say I was happy with that 😊 obviously things can change but I'm very low risk for now so fingers crossed I can get by with midwives only

Luckyme30 Wed 15-Apr-20 12:03:32

Talking of consultant led care those who are under consultant care (since covid) what’s happened with your appointments? Have you heard about them?

At my booking appointment midwife said she had sent a referral through for consultant care but I’ve not heard a word since - that was 2 weeks ago?

When does consultant led care kick in?

Tonicandgin Wed 15-Apr-20 12:06:14


I'm under part consultant/part midwife care for my under active thryroid and I'll have an apt at 20 weeks but think it depends on why you're being referred as to when it kicks in.

Sakura54 Wed 15-Apr-20 12:12:25

@SqidgeBum tbh some ppl on the fb group didn’t tell us their MN usernames and don’t post here lol so we don’t know who they are.

Luckyme30 Wed 15-Apr-20 12:14:16

@Tonicandgin thank you smile the midwife didn’t really tell me anything about what would happen. There are a few reasons for my referral to consultant but one of them is for mental health reasons so I was hoping it would be soon as feel in the lurch at the moment.

I guess I’m not now due to see the midwife until 16 weeks so thinking that I’ll prob see consultant after 20 week scan...
