I'm so tired all the time. I was ready for bed by 7pm last night. It doesn't help that I have to get up at 5am for DS2 and for the few days I haven't had time to have a nap during the day.

7wks today... only 5 more weeks until I start to feel alive again...

Definitely agree with feeling tired...however am a little bit better this week...I can make it past 9am without needing a nap. MS has kicked in every second day or so, with this morning included. Have a work dinner tonight and am hoping that MS decides to go away for that.

Joining the tired club - I've been asleep on the sofa by 8pm most nights this week. I'm such riveting company for DP!

Other than that, all is going well. Had a scan with FS yesterday, saw little one wriggling and kicking away, measuring just over 9 weeks, so pretty much spot on! biggrin.gif

Thanks for the encouragement Nervy, much appreciated!

And thanks for the info Kahm, I wasn't aware of the not eating/drinking together thing either. Will give it a go.

I've definitely been eating often, but might have to try eating smaller meals, as the MS gets so much worse when I'm hungry all I want to do is make it go away! So I've probably been eating much larger meals than I need at times.

Have also been very tired too. Slept for 10+ hours on Wednesday night! And I'm still exhausted pretty much every second of the day.

Hope everyone is doing ok today original.gif

My BF is pregnant with her second child. She's around 6 weeks ahead of me (although says she's almost 18 weeks and I'm 10 weeks so maybe I got it wrong). Anyway, she is worried that she's not getting bigger so thinks there is something wrong. She went to her GP who gave her a referral for a scan but she says she can't have it until she's 18 weeks, which seems odd to me. I'm so worried for her. I suggested she go to Emergency and tell them something's wrong and they'll do a scan. Maybe she needs to make up an issue so they will see her, rather than just saying "I'm worried". Any tips? She said she hasn't yet felt any movement, which I thought came earlier with a subsequent pregnancy.

I have some doubts about emergency because unless they have a OB or Gyn on duty, most other doctors are not really trained to due with fetal/preganacy distress. So many misdiagnosed m/c are due to emergency medical staff jumping to conclusions when they cant find a heartbeat which in actual fact is due to their inexperience. Some even suggest D&C on these wrong diagnosis which is terrifying to me. I dont understand why the GP ask her to wait till 18 weeks tho, unless its simply because the u/s is fully booked.

with my second pregnancy I didn't feel movement until around 19wks, everyone is different though. When was her last midwife/ob appt or scan? TBH I think feeling like you haven't gotten bigger isn't really a good indicator of the health of the pregnancy. She could ring the clinic she is going through for antenatal appts though and see what they say, that would be the best source of information or even the health direct number.

I couldn't be bothered swapping log ins so hi, I'm suprised#4 lol

Today we got my sons birthday presents bought and my little one had a hair cut and looks so much older lol Other then that shopping with ms sucked big time, lucky there was lots of toilets and I had DS2 with me so used the parents room so I didn't have to be sick with someone in the next stall lol

Ok best run for school pick up but Hi to everyone!!

Hi Everybody!
I'm new to the forums, but I wanted to drop in and say 'HI'.
I am 8wks, 2dys today. So very scary!
We already have a 10yo daughter, and didn't think it was going to happen again for us.
Sadly, we had a MC in June, just 5 days after finding out we were expecting again, so this time round is terribly nerve wracking!
It feels like my first time all over again.
We had our dating scan last month, at 6w5d, which was all fine, and I am so terribly seedy all day long that I am convinced this lil' monkey is going to stick it out.
So fingers crossed, and I hope to talk to you all soon!

prmrjr - bbighug.gif Take care of yourself.
Jacni - With my 2nd my belly popped out early but didn't change for about 6wks, then it started growing as per 1st pg. I felt movement from about 17wks but only if I sat really still and concentrated on it. I think 18wks is the minimum gestation for the morphology scan, so maybe the dr thinks everything is ok.

#18 Jacni

Posted 09 November 2012 - 07:31 PM

I'm so sorry prmrjr. Big hugs.

Tigster - I just passed on what you said to my friend and you've made her feel a whole lot better, so thank you.

sad.gif so sorry to hear about your loss. Cant imagine how difficult that must be:(

Welcome to Mizadele! Congrats- hope this one brings you a beautiful healthy bub original.gif


Saw OB today for first time this pregnancy.
He did dating scan, and confirmed 8w+4days.
There was no sound, and my heart stopped cause i thought there was no heartbeat cause i couldnt hear anything. But then i realised the machine had no sound. *blonde moment*

He then zoomed in and we saw the tiny heartbeat, and the baby moving around.
Was so cool watching him/her float around in the little bubble.

Hubby got so excited was really funny and he decided he wanted to tell everyone now. You'd think iy was our first not third! lol. My tummy has popped that i look pregnant so its going to be hard to hide much longer anyway i suppose. I dont suppose i can stay home another month - lol.

Chillidog I've been thinking of you and have everything crossed that all is ok

AFM well today I didnt vomit! Yay! And I ate!! My drugs seem to be working at the moment, I even managed to forget I was pregnant for a little while! So nice to feel semi normal even for a short period, I get excited about the pregnancy then!

Misty I think you were asking about movements in another thread?  With DS i felt from around 16 weeks, but last night and tonight while lying down and being very still I have felt bubbles in my abdomen...could just be gas etc but feels similar to last time. Will be interesting to see if it continues or not ( and it's just indigestion!!!)

So sorry prmrjr. Look after yourself.

I had some bright red spotting yesterday which completely freaked me out. No more since then and had a scan this morning which showed heart beating away and bub the correct size so really hoping I have nothing to worry about. Horrible and scary. Damn this just wait and see how things go crap is HARD.

I had my first ob appointment today and again got to see "squishy" and its little heart beating away. The ob gave me a prescription for the m/s which I am so glad about as I have been working from home for a while now and would like to re-join the world!

Hope everyone else is doing well!
