SECOND TRIMESTER CHAT - 2010

Thanks for the advice girls, I did phone my widwife trust and speak to one of the nurses, I told her what had happened but also that I had heard the little heartbeat on my doppler and she said that there was probably no need to worry and that she had a 3 yr old that she was picking up all the time when pregnant, I have had a sleep also and feel so much better. Have a nice night whatever you all end up doing and heres to a fantastic new year to all of us! Emma xx

SECOND TRIMESTER CHAT - 2010

Hello everyone Not sure if its too early to join you all in this tri? Hello to Laura and Jess who have just come up too, its great to be here. Have to ask a quick question to you more experienced pregnant ladies, I am moving house and have tried not to lift anything too heavy but yesterday I picked up a few things that were far heavier than I thought and now I am worried that I might have done some harm, what do you think please? Apart from that everything for me has generally been good and like...

Kayleigh, I think most of the ladies on here have felt the same way as you, I know I definately did, I spent a fortune on pregnancy tests just to check I still was pregnant then the day before my scan one of the tests showed negative so going to my scan I had convinced myself that I had a missed miscarraige but as you can see when we got there little spooky was there wiggling away. Talk to your GP or see about having a private scan, my local clinic does them for £70 at least that will put your m...

Hi there Just bobbing in to see if you all had a good Christmas? Mine was very quiet but really nice. I have now become addicted to my doppler! I use it first thing every morning before I get out of bed and I love it! It's weird because I usually find it in the same place and today its much higher up, and when I measured my belly (which I also do every day lol) it has gone up 2cm since yesterday. I think I have read somewhere that the fetus moves up in the 12week, does anyone else know? I know w...

Dawniedoll - I had similar sounding pain mine lasted a couple of days then stopped then came back, I went to my doctor who checked for a urine infection (which was clear) so said it will be stretching pains. Like Kaborex said go see your GP if it continues they do seem to rush you in if you tell them you are pregnant. Emma xx

Hello everyone, Are you all almost ready for Christmas? I have had this week off but are working tomorrow, I told 4 people today that I am pregnant which felt really weird! I have some guiness in the fridge so I can have one glass on Christmas day with my dinner, I know guideline say you can have between 1-2 units a week but I am abit unsure whether to have it or not? What have you all done? Take care xxx

Hiya everyone Blue Sky and Jess - Congrats on the great scans! I just bobbed in to say I had mine too today (not my 12 week NHS one - no thats in another 2 weeks lol) but my nuchal scan, I had not eaten at all when I got there at lunch time and spooky was really lazy not really moving alot, we got a wave though and could see his little fingers and his feet! Everything seems to be fine so far, I did the blood tests too as they were included in the price, she was a miserable old cow who did it and...

Hi there everyone Just a quicky to say Kaborex all my symptoms went practically overnight, I was convinced that it was all over. I still dont have many symptoms at all only the tiredness apart from that I forget that I am pregnant sometimes so please try not to worry as I am sure everything is ok. I do agree though that a scan is a really good reassurance for you if you can afford at this time of year. Well I gave into temptation and against the wishes of my boyfriend rented a doppler for a mont...

Morning all. Just thought I would say hello to you all as things seem to have gone abit quieter since the site changed. I love to look at my ticker and see how far its changed - doesnt seem that long since the 2ww yet in 2 weeks alot of us will have moved into the next trimester!! I have had some pains the last few days and thought it might be a water infection, took a sample in yesterday just to make sure but all seems clear. Still not having any symtoms (I know I should not complain) on Monday...

Thanks girls I knew if I posted a question on here someone would answer!! Jess maybe mine is cheaper as I am up north and things are often cheaper (like beer and wine)? But like you say worth every penny! Yeah I use bio oil as well. Emma xx

Hi there ladies Thought I would put my 2p's worth in!! I saw my midwife on 18th Nov who booked me in for my 12 week NHS scan, I still had not heard anything on Monday so I phoned them and asked they told me it was booked for 31st December at 9.30 and to expect a letter. I would be 13 + 1. I have received a letter today saying it is on 4th Jan? They are rubbish!! I decided to go private for the NT, it is £195 for 2 sets of blood and neck and nose scan that is on the 21st December. I cannot believ...

Hi Jess Yes I am feeling really heavy down below, its like it has only just come on over the last 2 days, I think once you hit 10 weeks it all changes, I read in my new book that its no longer called an embryo but a fetus. I have been having occassional shooting pains too but thats supposed to be normal too? Good luck with the docs again, and lets hope they find out whats wrong, maybe it could be to do with stress from work? I am only usually a size 8, the combats fitted in an 8 but the jeans se...

Hello again! Back from my 2nd scan and cant stop smiling, spooky measures 31.6mm which is just right for the stage that I am, it was a great scan whilst we were looking he gave us a wave lol. I still keep laughing now - hopefully that image will keep me going until the 12 week scan. Coming off the pessaries on Wednesday so that's good (even though I am now thinking what if baby needs them for a bit longer!!) But I am sure that the hospital knows what they are talking about! Take care everyone Em...

Hi Sheen Just wanted to mention that I take Sanatogen mother to be + omega 3 as I dont eat fish either, they are a double pack of vitamins, Folic acid in one bottle and omega 3 in the other. (I am sure I dont have to tell you but make sure you dont get cod liver oil by mistake!) I have another scan today at 11.45 so I am very excited and get to ask loads of questions!! Had an ok weekend, did some baking but had a really bad headache all day, I think I am struggling to find anything to drink that...

Hi ladies I agree with the bloatedness!! In a morning you can't even tell that I am pregnant but by the evening I am rubbing my belly like I am 6 months gone!! Had a few shooting pains yesterday but after reading all your posts I think they are just growing pains!! I have a scan on Monday so really looking forward to that, I have paid to have my nuchal scan at a private clinic so that is 2 weeks later on the 21st so got loads to look forward to. Still not heard anything from my midwife or hospit...

Hi Ladies Just thought I would check in to say hi, my internet has been playing up so not been on line for a couple of days. Reading your posts makes me feel really lucky that I am not suffering from ms yet and fingers crossed I dont get it!!! I have met my midwife and thought she was terrible, she has sent my forms off to the hospital for my 12 weeks scan, when I checked her photocopy whilst she was on the phone I realised she had the wrong surname down for the father!!! When I told her she sai...
