@dizzy85 @MrsCl19 🥰 ask away and tag anyone else, I've forgotten who else has bfps from our group now 🤷🏽♀️ x
@BabyB19 how are you doing? I'm having a crappy day today and feeling stressed I just had some spotting a minute ago and along with these dull cramps and painful legs I've been having I'm now convinced it's gonna end and af is coming 😞😞😞x
Aww @dizzy85 it's honestly such a stressful time I know exactly how it feels. I had spotting for ages and it just felt like a period was on its way every day but here I am 22 weeks now! Try and stay positive have lots of rest and be kind to yourself x
@BabyB19 it's awful it just feels exactly like a period is coming and now the spotting just doesn't seem right. What kind of colour spotting was yours? Was it a lot or when you wiped? 😩x
It was when I wiped, sometimes just like a brown discharge but I did have a couple of bright red spots @dizzy85 loads of people get spotting around when their period is due so try not to worry. I know that's impossible like but just get through the next few weeks ❤️ do you think you'll try and book an early scan if you're able to? X
@BabyB19 I did get spotting around when the period should have been but today would have been cd9 so af would have been over now if you see what I mean. Mine was a light red colour same as what I'd get before af. I will try to not worry but you know how it is. So much harder when your stuck indoors aswell. I'd like an early scan, how early can you get them? The worst part is everything is out of our control and you just gotta wait and hope 🤞🏻❤️x
You can't get one until 7 weeks I don't think but I would wait until 8 weeks ish and then it's only another 4 to go to the 12 week one. I found having scans at 8,12,16,20 weeks kept me sane counting down the 4 weeks at a time @dizzy85 I was also doing IC's every few days to reassure myself until I'd had a scan. It's obsessive but it's just how I got through it x
Ahaaaaa!!! Found it! I didn't get a notification
@dizzy85 I feel ya! Weeks up until that scan for me were super anxious. I also had a bit of brown discharge with a tiny bit of pinky red in
I'm on countdown for my next scan which is a week today I'll be 13+2 so I'm secretly hoping for a good nub to get a hint 🤣
Yer see mines not really discharge it's more when I wipe same as before af and same as I had in my first pregnancy but turned out to be a mmc so it's bringing back all the trauma from then. Sorry if I sound like a Debbie downer right now it just threw me seeing that today. Hopefully it's just how my body is and doesn't automatically mean bad things 🤞🏻
Ooh not too much longer to wait now 😁@MrsCl19
@BabyB19 I was doing my frers everyday but I've ran out of them and did a cheap one today the line is there but I'm gonna get some frers tomorrow so I can actually see if it's progressing with the same tests.
Hi @MrsCl19 how exciting, are you going to be finding out later on?
@dizzy85 if it's any consolation I had more bleeding this pregnancy than I did with the MMC so for me that wasn't just not an indication it was wrong it was the exact opposite! You're not being a downer, I understand completely how you're feeling and it's dreadful x
@BabyB19 we have a early gender scan booked middle of May! Dh is too excited to not find out 🤣
@BabyB19 thanks it really helps being able to talk about it especially where youve been through the same. I hope it's not bad news for me but I'm just gonna have to prepare myself for the worst aswell as remain optimistic now that's a confusing state of mind to have lol. Did you have more than one episode of spotting in a day or just random? Mines every time I go to the toilet and wipe today since this afternoon🙄 just have a bad gut feeling but I do hope I'm wrong.
@MrsCl19 how exciting, do you have a feeling what the sex is?
I hope you are all ok and don’t mind me asking, what are ICs is this a way to test if you are still pregnant. I’m around 6/7 weeks so wish I could check everything is progressing ok. Thanks for your help x
Hi @MrsVParker they're internet cheapies, just cheap pregnancy tests, I just bought a load so I can keep doing them and check the line wasn't fading. Congratulations and good luck.
My oh wanted to find out too but we did pro's and cons and decided not too I'm made up now we get a surprise at the end @MrsCl19
I honestly had it pretty much constantly until 9 weeks @dizzy85 and had the same feeling it wouldn't end well, I didn't talk to anyone even family about the pregnancy for months and wouldn't even accept it was happening because I was so convinced it would end x
@dizzy85 I think our minds automatically think the bad think as a way of coping... Iknow I was pretty convinced even after having a lot of symptoms when I went in for that scan there wouldn't be a heartbeat .
My gut feeling from the off and after the scan was boy even though I was convinced even before I was pregnant I'd have another girl.... my cravings are the same as when I had dd so I'm a bit in the middle now 🤭
@BabyB19 I'm a bit of a control freak so I couldn't cope with not finding out, I kept all of dd clothes and I'll either want to wash and sort or get rid.... however I do wish I had the patience or a surprise 🤣 have you got any gut feelings?
This is my first @MrsCl19 so I have nothing to compare symptoms to but I have a really strong feeling it's a girl, but was the opposite before I got pregnant I always thought I'd have boys! 🤷🏽♀️ I thought it would be a struggle not to find out but there's so much gender neutral stuff out there it's been easier than I thought tbh 🥰 only 18 weeks to go until we know x
@Tbug hi there! Can't believe there are so many of us on here now! Hopefully Ceebee will be ready to join soon too and then we just need Jones back ❤️
@BabyB19 with dd everyone kept saying it's a boy and my gut was girl! Not long! How exciting
@Tbug hi!! It's lovely we can all chat! Yes hope jones is ok and hopefully we can welcome her back soon!
Just wanted to add you to the pg board I did incase you want to add pg updates so the others don't get upset, whenever you're ready of course @ceebee21 @Jonesbabynumber1 x
How are you getting on @MrsCl19 any updates? X
@BabyB19 I've got my private scan tomorrow at 16+4.. eeeeek
I'm so excited for my dh to see baby and to either go through all dd clothes and see what I need or start buying some blue 😬
How are you??
Aww how exciting I hope they can see for you.
I can't wait to start buying more clothes when baby arrives 💜💙
I'm 26 weeks now and it's hit me this week I'm struggling a bit more now. I'm not really sleeping due to restless leg syndrome 🤦🏽♀️ another pregnancy delight nobody told me about 😭🤣 xx
@BabyB19 try a banana before bed I had that and also tonic water 🤢 tank buy it helped.
Wow 26 weeks! Wait till you get to the last month is feels like 378364738 extra days 🤣
