hey DizzyD
I have to say I agree with the other girls advice! I completely get where you are coming from especially when go from frequent scans to nothing for a while, I think I could compete with you in the "driving yourself nuts" competition and give you a good run for the title!! Try have a break away from everything and look forward to your next scan and try keep saying to yourself that all is good with your baby until you are told otherwise.
Will be thinking of you,
Take care

Hi there
Just popping in to say goodbye for a week! we're off on hols tomorrow and after a HUGE wobble this morning, I am really looking forward to getting away and getting some sunshine. I had to buy a more comfortable bra yesterday as mine are mainly underwired and have been digging in loads. Call me barking mad, but I was so reluctant to buy one and was circling the maternity bit in hennes like a raging nutter for ages. I'm surprised they didn't throw me out! I am glad I bought it though - so much more comfortable. Its just the thought of buying things seems almost like bad luck. You'll be glad to hear I am taking your very sensible advice now and am taking myself in hand! I am going to try to relax, enjoy myself and not worry (too much) until the scan when I come back. There is a spa at the hotel we're going to that does special treatments for pregnant women so i might treat myself! Lots of lovely Italian food too.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and good luck to everyone having scans, etc next week (Jen, I think that's you).
Take care everyone

Hey Girls
Amoona - fab news about your scan, its great you have reached another milestone!!

Jen - best of luck with your scan today - I know how nerve wracking it can be - but its also a great opportunity to know your baby!! Hope all goes well

Suzy - 10 weeks!! high5 thats brill - just like I said above to Amoona - its great to get to another milestone and wont be long now til your next scan....

I see my consultant today and for the first time I am actually looking forward to seeing him, havent seen him in about 8 weeks, am going to ask him about this swine flu vaccine..do any of you know anything about it?? I looked up on line and it doesnt seem that they have really carried out any clinical trials on pregnant women so I am a bit apprehensive about it as I work in a hospital and we are being strongly encouraged to get it...will let you know what he says...

Anyway, hope all is well with everyone else
Take care

Hi all

Amoona great news with your scan hon YEY!!!! Jens good luck today honey.

I had a little wobble today and went to see my M/W to listen to the hb which has helped calm me down a little, I am so so scared for my next scan (3 weeks tom)

A - I know what you mean about the swine flu thing, I have more or less decided not to have it, but like you say as you work in a hospital you may be more advised to have it? let me know the outcome please.

Take care all xx

Hi all
Jensqui - good to see all clear at 20 weeks. I will pop over to your diary now.
Amoona - brilliant news. 12 weeks seems like such a big milestone, doesn't it. Well done!
Rosebud - sorry you've been having a wobble but great your m/w could put your mind at rest.
Suzy - I'm not looking forward to going back to work either (i'm a teacher too). It will be a real shock to the system but we still have another week and a bit off. Good luck for Thursday!
Ros - good luck for Tuesday with your nuchal scan. Hopefully it will put your mind at rest a bit more.
Elvis - let us know about swine flu vaccine. I am feeling a bit dubious about it but swine fle is bound to go through schools pretty soon so am feeling a bit worried but don't like idea of vaccine.
Hope everyone else is good and I haven't missed anyone.
love

Great news on your scan dizzy, 20 weeks must feel good.
Thanks ladies, had my NHS 12wk scan today which went fine, both babies measuring the same and wriggling. I wasn't expecting to go in today at all but they found space at the last minute. I have my private one tomorrow as didn't expect an NHS one in time, I'm still going to it though as want to see the babies on the wizzo scanner!

Hey Girls
great to see that all the scans are going well...Dizzyd..hope you had great hol!!!

I had appt with my GP on friday but he was on Hols so I got someone who looked about 12!!! instead of using the doppler to listen to the HB he used a bloody prehistoric earTRUMPET thing and it took him at least 12 attempts, he then said reassuringly "when was the last time you felt the baby move????" Talk about freaking someone out!!! He eventually found the HB the eejit!!

Hope everyone is feeling well
Take care

Hi Elvis - sounds like an interesting experience with your 12 yr old doc! At least you heard it in the end!
Just got back from scan and all is well. I am now 16 weeks and 4 days according to today's scan but they keep it as 16 weeks and 2 days per the 12 week scan as apparently that is more accurate. Also he was pretty sure it is a boy! As everything looked normal we have decided not to go ahead with amnio and just keep an eye on scans as we go. I see the miscarriage woman again on Friday to discuss 'management of care' and then 20 week scan on 21 Sept. Each hurdle means so much when you get past it - I know you all understand exactly what I mean!
I might even dare to buy some maternity trousers now as all my waistbands are uncomfortable when I am sitting.
Hope everyone else is doing well and Suzy, good luck for your almost 12 weeks scan tomorrow - I'll be thinking of you.

Oh Suzy - it's just so hard I know. Once you get through this scan it will get a tiny bit easier. Just remember, one day at a time, little steps! At least its in the morning so you aren't left stewing about it all day.
Wishing you all the luck in the world.

Kar - I was the same (and still am!). I didn't get any sickness, I felt sick in the early eves and lost my appetite but didn't throw up once. That lasted from about 6 or 7 weeks to about 12 weeks. I also had coming and going breast soreness, so did loads of others on here - I'm sure it's all fine.
I would say that HPTs are not always a good indicator although they feel reassuring - they do tend to show positive for a while even after a m/c because hormones still stay around. The scan will reassure you and it'll be here before you know it!

Hi all

I have had a real wobble, yesterday I went to listen to the hb hopefully for reassurance and initially they were finding it hard to find the hb, they kept saying we can hear it but we keep loosing it and we want you to be able to hear it. They then asked me to walk around for 1/2 an hour and come back!!!! I was terrified but when I went back they found the hb straight away and confirmed all was ok.

Now I know I should be happy about this but this really knocked my confidence and I have been crying this morning, think it all reminded me of the mc. I also cant stop worrying as they were pessing hard on my tum, that this will have hurt my LO. Logially I know they know what they are doing and would not do anything to hurt my LO and I know I DID hear the hb but I dont feel happy or reassured. My mw was supportive when I called her today and said I can listen the the hb again if I think it will help, but to be honest I am scared just in case we struggle again and it makes me worse.

I was just starting to feel positive and feel this has all knocked me back, dont want to get upset as not good for my LO but cant help it!

Got 18 week scan week on Weds which hopefully will reassure me again.

Hate feeling like this, I should be happy? x

Rosebud, so sorry you are feeling so low. I do know what you mean, but you really are much 'safer' now that you are in the 2nd trimester. You have got more than twice as far as before and everything has gone really well so far. It is impossible to stop worrying, you'll have up days and down days and I think that for us we won't feel totally convinced that all is well until we have our babies in our arms. I now have three and a bit weeks til my next scan and feel a bit lost too, but the consultant said that between 16 and 20 weeks you should start feeling definite movements and that in itself will be a bit of reassurance between scans and m/w visits.
Just think, you are nearly 1/2way there and the most risky time has passed. Try and plan some nice things to do to take your mind off things til Wednesday, when the scan should be lovely and clear and give you much more reassurance than listening to the heartbeat. Really feel for you, hun but you will get through this.

Kar - although I don't think my state of mind could be described as sane just now, again I'd say keeping busy is the best thing. Don't know about you, but I'm a nightmare when I have not much to do, I'm off looking up things that can go wrong on the internet and scaring myself stupid. back to work next week which will be a relief as I won't have time to think about it all so much. Hope you aren't straining anymore! A cup of hot water and a bowl of branflakes do the trick for me.......

Kara I had the same thing with my boobs, sometimes they felt like they would drop off if I moved and other times they felt perfectly normal and didn't hurt one bit. I worried myself stupid and poked them a lot, I did find threads on another forum about symptoms coming and going and it's really common. I know that even knowing that didn't make me feel better during the early days, I think when you've had a loss or losses it's very hard to remain positive and relaxed about these things.

Rosebud, you LO is tucked up safe inside you and all that prodding yesterday would have done any harm at all, your baby is so well protected by your body. I don't know how you make yourself feel better after yesterdays worries, maybe just keep on reminding yourself that your LO is okay and you did hear the HB.

Hey Girls

Suzy - so glad you are having a baby and not a ferrit or the like!!! Its great news and you are probably so so relieved!!

Rosebud - I have had a few appts where it has been difficult to hear my babys heartbeat, I have since been told that its because my placenta is at the front and its like a cushion which muffles the sound, I also didnt really start feeling movement until about 21-22 weeks which was an added worry, however, as everyone here says, each pregnancy is different, its difficult not to worry but I kept telling myself that worry wasnt good for the baby either!!....I completely empathise with how unsettling it must be for you and at least its not long now til your next scan...

Kara - again as all the other girls say, symptoms come and go, and am sure you, just like the rest of us are Hyper alert to every wee thing going on, or absent in your body, its totally normal to feel how you are feeling, and coming here and getting it out really helped me enormously!!!

Hope everyone else is okay - we have booked a 3D scan for next week, am so excited about it, really cant wait to get a good look at our baby, our hospital policy is not to disclose the sex of the baby so we hope to find out next week...

Hi to everyone else, Amoona, Jens, DizzyD and anyone else I may have left out!! Hope you are all keeping okay...

Take care

Hi everyone. I am having a wee wobble My head is buzzing with worries as usual!!! I keep thinking how would I know if something is wrong? Could something be wrong and I would not know until my 20 week scan?
I am having a few wee niggling pains in my tummy but that could just be growing pains? Or my friend of a cyst?


Nothing is ever easy!!!

Sorry you are having a wobble and I don't know the answer to that Suzy but I am having exactly the same worries at the moment - there's just no way of knowing. My boobs were really veiny and very very sore - they look more normal now. I don't have much of a bump and I am having niggling pains too (I know that sometimes they are to do with constipation and trapped wind but some really feel AFy). I have 2 and 1/2 weeks to wait until 20 week scan and it seems like such a long time. Are you going to book in for another scan midway bewteen now and 20 weeks? I don't know what to do. Hope you feel better soon.

Hi all

Sorry your having a wobble Suzy, I was like this a few days ago. I have my 20 weeks scan next week (will actually be 18 weeks ish) I am so so scared and really hoping it reassures me. One day at a time, but its hard not to get excited and I want to start buying things! my m/w told me at our stage of the pregnancy now, realistically we would KNOW if something was seriously wrong? we all have different symptoms and aches and pains, but its natural to worry xx

HI..

I'm also having a wobble its the firt time I wait this long for a scan, now it has been 3 weeks since my last scan..and I'm just afraid that everything is over...
I'm 14 weeks now and I still don't have a bump, all my pregancy symptoms are over except that I have constipation... everyone is asking me if I felt the baby move but I haven't felt anything yet!!
I'm driving myself crazy what should I be feeling at 14 weeks??????

Hey Girls
so sorry to see a few of you are feeling stressed and worried, I know we keep saying everyone is different but it really is so true, If I hear another person tell me that I look "very neat" or even that "I have lost wieight!!!!!! SCREAM" then i will loose the plot completely....I see other people who arent as far gone as me and they have massive bumps, so it just emphasises that we are all different........all we can do is take each day at a time and think of the last scan we all had were all was well !!! The waiting is a killer, and I really found the time up until the 20 week scan very slow, if its any consolation since 20 weeks I feel time has flown in....

Hope the worry eases soon, and try remember all is well until you are told otherwise, my gran used to say worry is wasted energy!!

Take care girls

Hi moonA, It's very hard not to worry when you're pregnant, but there's no need. At 14 weeks you won't have a bump or feel movement.
The earliest you'll feel movement (and that will just be little flutters) is about 16-17 weeks. Your uterus has only just begun to appear above your pelvis, not far enough up to push everything up and give you a bump.So give it a few weeks and you'll see changes. Do you have a doppler? you could then listen to baby's heartbeat, and that can be very reassuring. It would be nice to have a little window to look in and see how your baby's growing wouldn't it!!
All the best.

Thank you Chris for reassuring me :)
I didn't buy a doppler as I know that I worry too much and everytime I can't find the heart beat I'll start to panic...

Suzy and dizzyd hope your feeling better ...
Rosebud good luck on your next scan
