Bronze!

My GTT sucked.  I spent the whole 2 hours varying between about to throw up and about to pass out.  Needle one - missed the vein, use the other arm, needle 2 success in the first arm, needle three back in arm 2 - she used the same F'ing vein!!!  It hurt SO bad that I cried.  I don't remember ever crying during blood tests before but i could not stop - my god it hurt.  I came home and decided to take the day off.  I felt awful.  DH brought me a kebab for lunch which helped - get some good food into me!  Was nice to have a nanna nap this afternoon anyway.  I'm not looking forward to the 28 week GTT.... but I don't remember having the 2 hour one last time either.

So glad to hear everyone's scans have been going really well. How exciting!!
Well I was hospitalised on Saturday, my morning sickness is so bad I became severely dehydrated and started losing my vision. Not fun at all. But bub is fine and after lots of fluids and medications I am feeling a little better. I can keep water down now at least and the last two days even managed a few meals original.gif

Oh and a quick intro of myself (forget if I have done one), I'm 21, from Victoria, engaged to my beautiful man (highschool sweethearts and will celebrate 5 years together around bubba's EDD). My son Leo is nearly 17 months and still breastfeeding/comfort nursing (very draining) biggrin.gif

Sarkasm - that sounds horrible, I'm really not looking forward to mine. I have one vein that nurses like to use and each time it is getting more and more painful.

I'm feeling "less pregnant" now than for the 14 weeks previous! Apart from itchy, stretching skin and a growing belly I'm starting to feel like myself, getting some energy back (went two days in a row with out an afternoon disco nap! Success!) and am finding I can exercise without feeling like I want to fall asleep standing up. My eating has also gone back to normal (apart from chicken. Chicken tastes weird.).

I'll claim boobies!

Sorry, I've been MIA - well, far too slack to post.

I'm so pleased to read about everyone's scans.

Oh sarkazm, so sorry you had such an awful experience with your GTT.  I had the 'pleasure' of doing the GTT at 10 weeks being prediabetic prior to being pregnant - now I officially have gestational diabetes and get to follow a strict diet for the remainder of my pregnancy, oh joy  rolleyes.gif
Having done IVF and been the proverbial pin cushion, I've discovered that there are pathology people who can properly collect blood and those who can't.  Your collector was a definite 'can't' - seriously hope your next GTT will be a far less painful experience.

MadelineCharlotte, RealityBites - I'm sorry your ms/hg has gotten to the point where you have needed to go to hospital.  Hope it provided some much needed relief.

Madeline - awww, I love hearing stories about people who marry their high school sweethearts  biggrin.gif  I married my uni sweetheart - met at 18 and we're still together nearly 20 years later.

newseason -  roll2.gif  I think I'm in denial about my bump - I'm fobbing it off as an extra layer of fat rather than baby!

dotdash - me too! I don't feel pregnant anymore.  MS has all but gone, I've gone back to the gym (yay!) - I just feel like a diabetic who has to monitor her blood sugar levels throughout the day and follow a low carb diet.  I've basically lost interest in my actual pregnancy, but all I'm thinking about is life with 3 of us and how it will be  wub.gif

AFM - just plodding along, funny thing was that as soon as I had my 12 week NT scan and got back the good results, my mind has totally relaxed - I was anxious in the first trimester, basically taking it one week at a time, and now, hardly a care in the world - dunno if this is good or bad.

I spent the whole of Wednesday in hospital with gastro  sad.gif  - I'm one of those people who just can't stop vomiting when they get it.  Woke up 3.30am Wednesday feeling very ill, started vomiting and kept vomiting every 10 minutes.  DH rang the nurse-on-call service who said go to ED if I can't handle the vomiting, otherwise see a GP within 4 hours.  Ended up going to the ED and was very lucky that they took me in straight away.  Hooked up on IV fluids and anti-nausea meds.  I only went to ED because I was worried about the baby and getting dehydrated, otherwise, I would have just stayed at home and rode it out which I have done previously.  It wasn't until I was in hospital that I realised that in the previous gastro episodes I've had, I've virtually driven myself into the ground - I didn't think that severe vomiting and having the runs is worthy of a trip to the ED  blush.gif

Off to see my OB this afternoon where I get to break the news to him that I'm off to the Maldives in Jan - anyone else going on a babymoon??

Hi ladies,

Been a bit since I posted... Great to see so many positive scans and progress original.gif All good over here, we had a great scan, baby has all it's bits, low risk results (NT).

Does anyone else have an anterior placenta? I do atm (it could move later), but I'm wondering if it's what's causing my terrible back pain sad.gif

Clothes: Anyone looking for some boho, comfy maternity clothes, I recently bought 4 maxis from http://www.fillyboomaternity.com/c/4002702...ty-clothes.html

'Let's be together' (black) and 'The story of' (navy/white stripe) are my favs! I team them with fluoro thin belts, long necklaces, light crocheted vests/boleros, and some thongs (it is Summer in QLD after all original.gif).

TV: I've also downloaded 3 seasons of One Born Every Minute and have been watching each night. I end up in "happy" tears almost every episode biggrin.gif

sarkazm - what a horrible experience! Hopefully next time you get someone who is better at inserting needles.

realitybites & madeleinecharlotte & scruff1010 - your poor things. I hope you start feeling better soon.

jenganoosh - I don't have an anterior placenta this time but I did with my first pregnancy. It didn't cause me backache but definately meant I felt baby movement much later and it wasn't all that frequent. At the beginning of my labour DD was posterior (don't know if that was because of an anterior placenta or not) which meant I had awful backache during labour (but that eased up a lot when I got into the bath).

Sarkazm76 - sorry to hear about your awful GTT.  I had one at 10 weeks and my ob said the standard has changed and all of the pregnancy ones are now the 2hour ones.  I nearly vomitted at the 10 week one as I still had MS.  I had GD with DD so am basically on the diet now and have to have a GTT every 4-6 weeks.

i feel like i need a day off.  DD is teething and DS has been really bad at kinder today, I just want DH to come home and take over-........argh

#12 yoohooyou

Posted 09 November 2012 - 06:37 PM

Finally had our scan today. Everything looks good but the risk for DS is currently 1:290 which is apparently high risk (but better than the straight age related risk of 1:110). The doctor looking after me today talked me through the results and said that if they were anything over 300 we would have been low risk and now we need to decide if we have further testing or not. She did say that the scan looked good and the neck measure was excellent.

Leaning towards not doing further testing as it seems like the risk is still pretty low. I have the added dilemma of not knowing what I would do if the testing came back as an absolute sure thing for D/S, I would be very doubtful if I would do anything except arm myself with knowledge.

As I said, not too worried but it is just one extra thing to think about after the last 13 weeks and to top it all off I still have pretty bad morning sickness. Feeling very sorry for myself!

Have the OB appointment next week so will ask him about it then. Good to see all the other results and I envy those who are back to feeling normal!

Scutterbug - Oh you poor thing, not news you need to hear! A good friend of mine had similar odds with her 2nd child and had an amnio and said it was horrible. When her 3rd came back with similar odds she didn't do the amnio. They are both fine. I know that's not definitive science but I guess with these things we have to go with our guts.

Jenganoosh, what site do you download one born every minute? I've just starting to get into it. Have been trying to get hubby to watch an episode with me but he's holding off until its closer to our reality wink.gif

#15 mumfor3

Posted 10 November 2012 - 06:05 AM

I had my appointment and my results have come back at 1/7000, so I'm very happy with that. Saw bub sucking fingers and got a pic so I will try to post it.

ATM I have been emotional, wanting to cry. I didn't have any emotional issues 1st trimester and I'm sure they should be easing now in 2nd so I guess I'm just a little behind.

I'm beginning to think I may be feeling bub move a little...
Nurse and OB asked if I am yet, so I know it's very possible. I cannot  hide my bump any longer, so I don't even try to. Sleep is becoming an issue again, waking and can't get back to it. It's frustrating listening to hubby sleeping away whilst ur tossing and turning.

Have a lovely weekend ladies.

Morning All.

Jenganoosh - i love that site, thanks for the link original.gif
Newseason - try torrent day, they seem to have everything on there
Scutterbug - how stressful for you, im sure you will make the right decision on whether to further test or not.
Mumfor 3- great result, happy for you

Sorry to all those ladies still feeling the effects of MS/HG fx it leaves town soon.

AFM - still plodding along, NT scan wednesday so fx all is ok.
Started telling family this weekend as big get together today so wanted it out in open as my lack of drinking and the size of my BB's is a dead giveaway. (i didnt think they were that big until this week, they are huge -for me anyway)
my Nana cried when i told her last night and just got msg off an aunty saying my cousin aged 9 squealed when she told her ... so excited that it is out in the open
DH is being a pill - i know he is happy and excited deep down would just be nice if he looked slightly happy or excited or wanted to talk about bub every now and then.
Has been an emotional week though had my other grandmothers funeral wednesday and he couldnt come due to exam which i was fine with ... so giving him the benefit of the doubt at the moment wink.gif

Posted 10 November 2012 - 01:01 PM

Hi ladies, have been reading along since my first post a few weeks back but wanted to wait til 12 wk scan to get more active, and I was getting stressed reading about the losses in the group, particularly the later ones. But sadly i'm now one of those losses too. Had some pretty serious spotting yesterday and managed to get an emergency scan yesterday arvo (was booked in for 12 wk scan next week). Unfortunately there was no heartbeat or movement, and baby was measuring the size of a 9.5wk old. Will have follow up bloodtests to confirm HCG levels are decreasing etc, but hopefully it'll all just happen naturally.

Anyway, just wanted to wish you all the best of luck with your pregnancies and the births that will follow. It's an amazing journey original.gif

Take care,
Squizzy

Squizzy so sorry this is happening. Look after yourself and hope that you are back in a dig group very soon.

Have the OB appointment tomorrow and after sitting with my less than impressive NT results for a couple of days I have come to the conclusion that even if it is offered I won't be doing any further testing.

This was such a surprise and a pretty much a miracle it even happened at all, whatever will be will be and I am going to (blindly) assume that everything will turn out for the best regardless of what happens. I think I will ask the OB for an extra scan at around 16 weeks to check the nasal bone and the rest of the anatomy just so I know as early as possible what we are in for. Should be an interesting conversation as this is the first time that I will meet him!

Morning sickness still sucky but at least have cut down the vomiting to only a couple of times a day so it is on the improve.  Told our six year old today who in turn told me as long as I can keep it out of her room and I can promise it won't be cuter than she was she is excited to be a big sister!
