@EithneBlue am I right that it's your scan day today?? Hope it goes ok. Mine is tomorrow and I've been thinking about calling them to ask if OH can come since they haven't updated their guidance :(

Does anyone else still feel like they're getting "growth spurts"? Monday and yesterday I felt totally wiped out, and hadn't slept well, and today my bump feels bigger and tighter, I'm getting more pains in my hips and my boobs feel fuller and more sore again. I think I expected it to all be gradual and continuous but I seem to get a few days/week of normal and then a sudden change!

Hi ladies, I hope it's ok if I join your thread? I'm 17 weeks and due 16th Dec with baby no 2. We sadly lost our first baby last year in a TFMR at 19 weeks, so it's been nerve wracking but I've had a scan with fetal medicine this week and this baby doesn't have the same condition. So it's time to try and enjoy the pregnancy I think ☺️. Congratulations to you all by the way! x

@1stbabs welcome sorry to hear of the loss of ur bubba I'm due the 13th december it's hard to enjoy the pregnancy when you have worrys I'm looking forward to my scan at end of month to make sure all is ok

MummyShark97 · 08/07/2020 15:20

@RestorationInsanity yes growth spurts is exactly what I've described to my husband!

peachypetite · 08/07/2020 15:27

Yep I’ve felt shattered yesterday and today!

RestorationInsanity · 08/07/2020 15:30

Glad it's not just me! I sometimes look down and wonder just how massive I'm going to be by the end!

Welcome @1stbabs. Am sorry for your loss and glad to hear that this baby is looking healthy.

Have decided to try and start running again this week. Haven't done any since 1st trimester, but have been a runner for years so hopefully if I go slow I can at least manage a gentle shuffle!

ChampooPapi · 08/07/2020 15:33

@1stbabs welcome and congratulations on your pregnancy lovely. You've been through so much so definitely you are aloud to let yourself enjoy this pregnancy now 💜

Just about to set up a new thread before this one runs out so I'll post it on here

Thank you all for the warm welcome x

@Kj1010 thank you, it's such an anxious time isn't it! I'm sure after your scan you'll be able to relax when you know baby is ok x

Hi ladies. It was not good news today and so we have discussed and decided the best course of action for ourselves a couple and for this poor little one is to have a termination for medical reasons. We've been incredibly unlucky, but there aren't any treatment options for our baby girl so to protect our hearts, we've had to make this heartbreaking decision.

Wishing you all the best on the rest of your pregnancy journey's, I'll try check in from time to time but for now I'm going to get some space from the pregnancy boards on here. Thank you all so much for your kind wishes and support over the last few months, you'll never know how much your kind words have helped me on this journey. Lots of love xxxxx

Pinktruffle · 08/07/2020 15:53

I'm so so sorry @RunnerGirl123. I'll be thinking of you, your partner and your little one. We are here for you if you need to talk xxx

peachypetite · 08/07/2020 15:53

Oh @RunnerGirl123 that is a heartbreaking update. I hope you have a strong support network who can help you get through this awful time. I’m genuinely so sorry for you and it’s completely understandable you would want to be avoiding the pregnancy boards.

1stbabs · 08/07/2020 15:55

@RunnerGirl123 I'm so very sorry. I've been there, and I know how painful this decision is. I wish you all the love and strength in the world to get through this awful time ❤️

@RunnerGirl123 I am so so sorry. You poor thing xxx

RestorationInsanity · 08/07/2020 16:01

I am so so sorry and sad to read this @RunnerGirl123. I had so hoped that there would be a different outcome and something they could do for you and your little girl. I hope that going forward you can eventually find some peace, and find some comfort as a couple in the meantime.

EithneBlue · 08/07/2020 16:09

@RunnerGirl123 I'm absolutely devastated for you and your partner, having to experience the pain of losing a little one. I was so hoping for a better outcome for you. I hope you find the love and support you need from friends and family but know that distancing yourself from others to protect your heart is completely understandable💖 take all the time you and your partner need to go through this journey together, every day will be different and unpredictable but that is part of grief I guess. No words can truly help your healing but time hopefully will💫 sending you so much love, your baby girl will always be a part of you xxx
