George I feel the same and I've seen the baby wriggling in there. LOL. I'm sure everything will be ok. I'm still gagging at certain strong smells but don't feel sick that much anymore and feel more fat and bloated than pregnant. I've got the same midwife all the way thru now, Had her with my last pregnancy too. x
Glad everything is ok Sarah. Yeah I think if you have a home birth you'll more than likely end up with her there or if she's off it could be another member of her team. That's bad that you've had to have your bloods done again. Feeling really ill again, picked up a cough while we were on holiday and all the yuk down my throat and the coughing coz my thoat is also dry somehow is making me be sick at least once a day. Not a happy bunny. Plus my boobs have gone really tender again and they hurt. Got my appt for my next scan thru already, 29th Aug, fingers crossed I can find out pink or blue so I can decide what to wash and buy and get rid of! x
Hiya!Hope you're feeling a bit better now George.
Will be 15 weeks 2moro! Where has the time gone, can't wait for 20 week scan and to start feeling proper kicks.Have to say it's sodding hayfever driving me mad now, sneezing constantly and still all bunged up.
Hope everyone is well,Nikki x
Congratulations Gemma! At least you won't forget when you're due! LOL. x
Awww, I think I feel kicks but really couldn't definitely say it's not just wind so I don't know, waiting for a big one that I know has to be baby! LOL.Congrats on having a boy, I'm hoping on a girl this time but so long as baby is healthy it doesn't matter so much. Don't envy you moving again especially not while pregnant, it's not fun at all. Although moving while pregnant is better than moving with a newborn that wants feeding every 5 mins.
I'm still feeling sick occasionally, mostly when I've not slept very well. Starting to think that I'm going to have it all the way through.
Starting to think about giving birth too...especially about the time of year! Just hoping there's no snow or ice on the ground when I go into labour because there's a big hill to go get up to my house and my drive is on a slope too so I wouldn't be able to get out and midwife wouldn't be able to get up! Everyone was abandoning their cars at the bottom of the hill last year. Midwife is planning a home birth for me because my previous labours were 4hrs and 2 hrs from first contraction to baby being born and she's expecting this one to be quick too so at least I should have everything I need here.Sorry for stressing anyway, just needed to get it out. Hope everyone else is well! x
I think I am lucky! LOL. I don't get the build up like most women do though. With my first I woke up about a minute before my waters popped and within 15 mins I was having contractions 3 mins apart and by the time I got down the stairs from the flat I lived in they were every 45 seconds for 45 seconds and I had that for 3hrs solid, think the midwives thought I was being a drama queen because it hurt so much and they said I was only 2cm, but went to 10 within an hour. With my second I woke up and thought I just had cramps because I needed the loo, went twice about 10 mins apart with cramps and then had 2 contractions 5 mins apart and then went straight down to 2 mins apart. Was in hospital 40 mins before he made an appearance. I had gas and air both times but I don't think it really helps because you still feel everything just feel a bit removed as well so going to see if I can go without this time.Hopefully this one will make a reasonably quick appearance but not so quick that I'm not sure what's going on, an hour would be good. LOL.
Maybe it's the weather making us feel worse, I've had a headache the last few days too and been feeling sick a lot more...might be connected. Hope you feel better today.I don't know about you but I'm not really getting the email notifications so maybe people have just forgotten they've posted here? x
How is everyone? It's awfully quiet on here! x
Hiya,Awww it's horrible isn't it. Kam's one of the youngest too so I know how you feel, he loves school once he gets there tho. Just hates getting out of bed every morning. We're progressively getting later every day despite getting up half hour earlier today!!!Glad you're nearly sorted, but that's a pain having all your bloods done again! I went for my 20 week scan 2 weeks yesterday, baby is healthy, but due to my bmi (a nice way of saying fat) they couldn't get all the measurements they wanted. Also wouldn't let on what colour I'm cooking but I've got another scan 2moro morning so will ask again and see if they'll tell me otherwise I'll be off for a private scan! Need time to prepare and don't like having loads of white coz with a baby it won't stay white for long and yellow and green just don't look good against my kids skin tone. Plus I don't wanna get out all the boys stuff if we're having a girl! I just wanna know! LOL. So desperate to buy baby stuff but don't like unisex stuff. I have a suspicion that we're having a girl because the lady was scanning around there quite a lot and I didn't see a willy but I'm not a professional and so not willing to spend money only to find out I'm wrong. Might just be wishful thinking tho. LOL. Speak soon, x
Heya! Turns out we're having another boy! LOL. On the plus side it means I haven't got much to buy although I couldn't resit getting a pack of baby gros and a new blanket (even tho we've got hundreds) when we popped to Tesco earlier. The guy doing the scan said our hospital doesn't really have a policy to tell you or not, it depends on how much time they get and whether they're confident predicting the sex. He pointed out the sack and willy tho so this ones definitely a boy. I was wondering if the woman last time didn't tell me because I had both my other kids with me and my OH is Pakistani because when I asked the sex she just said it wasn't part of the scan.They keep telling me I'm gonna have big babies but I've had a 7lb 8.5oz, and 8lb 10.5. Midwife said oooh they're getting bigger and then I pointed out that one was 8 days early and the other 9 days late so realistically they're both the same size really if you take into account their gestation. Kam is the same every morning, only way to get him up is to pop Disney Junior on and turn it up before I go wake him, but then we have to sit and watch Jake and the neverland pirates for 20 mins but it still means he's out of bed faster. Actually managed to get to school on time today!How come Harriet was early? Did you just go into labour? Speak soon x
LOL Don't worry. I was expecting my second early but ended up overdue. Little baby clothes are so irresistable. Was in Debenhams earlier and the had some really cute stuff. Had to keep reminding myself that we've got too much already. I've passed out on the sofa already this evening, can't wait to get to bed. x
