Thinking of you kmdoll.

Tiny teddys. I like the new list, looks good.

Welcome and Congrats newbies. Our group is ever growing!




#6 Choufleur

Posted 09 January 2013 - 08:36 PM

TinyTeddys that's a pretty good looking list, good luck with keeping up with it. I think it was easier when the DIGs were split in 2!

(As noone claimed Gold or bronze can I? wink.gif )

Glad that the hot weather has eased off for a day or two, and that I was in the office yesterday for the heatwave, so I only had to deal with the night time and feeling so so hot. Luckily someone at work offered me a lift home too, the thought of getting the train yesterday was horrific.  

I'm not sure how I'm going to make it to 8 months on public transport - with DD my OB gave me a letter so work let me drive in (yay) but we've moved house and it's a long way in peak hour traffic in and out of the office, I'm not sure I could be bothered. Remind me of that in July...

I'm still really hungry, one of the guys saw me with 2 lunches yesterday in the office - I was like "oh they're very small these portions" which they are but I'm sure he saw through me (he has 3 kids). Will see how long I can keep it under wraps.

I had my IRL mothers' group today and I was dying to tell a couple of them - there are at least 3 of them p/g. But I thought I should wait until we were a bit further along, perhaps 9 weeks, or when I see the ob. God that's 5 weeks away.

cassidysmummy I don't know how on earth you've coped with MIL for that long. Why is she staying SO long? I quite like my MIL but after 1 month of them visiting when DD was about 4 months old I was about ready to go mad, and they didn't even stay with us. You're amazing.

kmdoll sorry to hear your news, be kind to yourself

#7 Apple&seed

Posted 09 January 2013 - 09:33 PM

Ok so I am freaking out here.  DD & I went to a friend's house today, they have a pet cat & a stray who is quite friendly.  My DD was quite taken by them & interacted with them a lot in the few hours we were there.  I completely forgot about the risk of toxoplasmosis and now I'm really worried.  I have been tested before and don't have immunity for it.  I understand it is only passed through contact with cat faeces, I am just worried that DD may have come into contact with cat faeces today unbeknowns to me & passed it on.  Does anyone know much about toxoplasmosis & the odds of it being passed on in a situation like this?

#8 Choufleur

Posted 09 January 2013 - 10:35 PM

Apple&seed I'm probably not much use as I've actually had it (my dad was a vet, we always had cats etc etc, who knows how I actually got it) - but I'm sure as long as you & DD wash your hands thoroughly you'll be fine.

After a horrible backache yesterday I started cramping in the afternoon and bleeding last night.

Smooth sailing for the rest of your journeys.

I have a quick question about morning sickness ladies. Last night I woke up with horrible stomach cramps and feeling almost like I had food poisoning for about 15 minutes. As I have never been PG before I was worried this was something else.... or is it a normal sick feeling? I don't feel 100% this morning either but not as bad as last night.




ETA: I got a spray tan yesterday because I'm a bridesmaid this weekend. I was assured it was fine in pregnancy but now ofc I'm worried

Hello everyone, I have been reading and hoping I could join but was waiting for a BFP which I got this morning  biggrin.gif

EDD is 19th September  original.gif

So very happy!

I am in Brisbane (northside) and have 4 children. Very excited about this baby.

Hope you are all well.

#13 againagain

Posted 10 January 2013 - 08:43 AM

prmrjr I'm so sorry to hear that.  sad.gif

I was awake with terrible back/hip aches last night, thinking I would wake this morning and it would be over too, but nothing so far. Just a very heavy feeling in my pelvis.

Apple&seed don't worry about the cat, seriously! You have to actually INGEST infected cat faeces to get toxo. Just playing with a cat is extremely unlikely to cause you to become infected. The majority of cats are not toxo carriers anyway...if I remember rightly it's only about 15% of them. Unless you are chaning kitty litter or something (and to do that you just wear gloves and wash wash wash your hands) it is absolutely EXTREMELY unlikely you will have a problem. You are FAR more likely to get toxo from raw or undercooked meat here in Aus.

Tiger-lily....it could be nothing, if you feel a bit better today and the cramps have eased off. A lot of women get bad bowels that can be quite painful (gas/farting! TMI) OR maybe it was implanting further in your uterus? I'm sure the spray tan is fine  original.gif

Sorry, hopping off my 'know-it-all" step now....I know I can be annoying  ph34r.gif

Hope everyone else is well!

ETA - welcome nic'sgot4! Congrats :-)

Morning all and welcome and congratulations to new people joining us (says the person who's been here three days)

bbighug.gif kmdoll and prmrjr.
For those with cramps - I found I had them until about 12 weeks with DD, it's quite common, particularly with first babies, to have cramping because the uterus is expanding quite rapidly, so it can be totally normal by itself.

cassidysmummy - apologies for mis-reading yesterday! I'd blame baby brain, but really I think it's just that I can be inattentive! Excellent news on reclaiming your space from MIL. When we were building our house we tried to live with our ILs (we were going to swap between them and my parents), DH lasted two weeks! So totally hats off to you for going so long.

AFM - nausea is getting worse, but still able to eat a bit (last pg, I barely ate for the first trimester, lucky I am a bit overpadded to begin with!). Decided to do another hpt yesterday and had a bit of a freakout because it ended up being a faulty one!

Have booked an appointment with a new ob (only just got in with him though!). I ended up telling one person yesterday, because she was the only pesron I knew who had been to him before and I wanted to see what she thought.

Tempted to ask gp for a dating scan when I go, just because I've only had AF twice since DD was born (she's 14 months), what do you think? Or am I just secretly wanted to have a scan so I can check it's all going ok? Maybe it's not so secret...

I hope you all have a lovely day and hooray for Thursday!

#16 Lulu_R_S

Posted 10 January 2013 - 09:49 AM

So sorry prmrjr. Thinking of you.

Tiger lily and again again. Fingers crossed it's just normal aches and pains.

SleepyErin. Why not get a dating scan. Thats what I'm doing, mostly just to have an early scan and get reassured that everything is fine. :-)

welcome and Congrats to our newest additions.

I'm feeling good today. Counting down the days til my scan on Tuesday. I've stopped worrying about mc as much and just accepting that its normal to worry and trusting in the powers that be. I'm starting to have trouble getting comfy sleeping already! Going to buy one of those body pillows. MS seems to have settled down a lot with just the occasional nausea if i need to eat. I just seem to be craving salty foods which was the same in my first pregnancy. Especially chips. Mmm think I'm hungry lol.

Hope everyone else is well. It's gonna be another warm one today in Ipswich. So glad my house has air con!

#17 RMTC

Posted 10 January 2013 - 10:04 AM

Hi!  I am not sure if I belong here or the August group.  I am due with #2 on roughly 05 Sept, but am likely to be having another c-sect so will likely deliver later Aug.  Thought i'd pop in and say Hello anyway.

Was hoping to avoid m/s this time..........I had it for about 3/4 off my last pregnancy, and I was doing ok..........but it is begining to raise it's horrible little head.  Only nausea at this point, but that is bad enough.  My GP's locum told me it is usually worse second time around.......so not what I wanted to hear.  

Question for those who have been pregnant before........I am starting to show already.  Am I the only one?  It is like I went from normal to 3 months in a week!  I dont think I am going to be able to hide it from everyone this time, especially DH's family, who tend to be critical so I am not too excited about them knowing yet.

#19 Lulu_R_S

Posted 10 January 2013 - 10:43 AM

Welcome RMTC. I feel like I'm showing already too though i think it's mostly gas lol. It's normal for subsequent pregnancies to show sooner and of course everyone is different as well and it depends on your size IYKWIM. I'm a size 14 at the moment and finding my pants are already getting tight so am wearing ones with elastic as much as possible and have already started looking at maternity clothes lol.

Long story, her and my SIL moved down south and she couldnt get a job (Or more one she liked as she is fussy) so she came back up to Perth to her old job but had no where to live, so was suppose to be a short term thing!!!



#22 CHROMI44

Posted 10 January 2013 - 11:09 AM

Firstly, welcome newbies.

Sorry to hear prmrjr sad.gif all the best!

cassidysmummy you deserve a medal for having your MIL for living with you that long, I doubt I could do a week let alone that long... no wonder you are craving space, especially now.

Choufleur - goodluck with the public transport, luckily I havent had to do that but I could only imagine how awful it woudl be.

RMTC - this is my second as well and Im sure that I am bigger already Ive heard it happens as your muscles are more relaxed, but Ive already had to pull out some loser pants again so I feel comfortable. I to am expecting to have a CS late August but I figured since it wasnt confirmed yet I wanted to be with all you girls who are due the same time as me, even if it is a few days biggrin.gif


AFM - my cramping has slowly started to subside, no where near as bad as it was last week which is good.. this morning I woke up feeling sick and it has been coming and going all morning, and here I was thinking I could avoid it this time round.. but Im trying to stay positive thinking its a good sign that things are going well... other than that no major symptoms, just the tired and sore boobs like the rest of you and the beginning of morning sickness...


I wont be having a dating scan but Im pretty sure my OB will do a scan at my first appointment which is early Feb.. Im crossing everything until I get to that point.. I dont want to think bad thoughts but its so hard not to until you get confirmation.. I wish I could find out sooner, waiting suck

Hi everyone

Mind another newbie?

I had a dating scan this morning which puts me due at 2 sept. I had a miscarriage in October so was waiting for some good news before joining!

I also have a 16 month old son.

Hi all

I am so glad I am not out in this heat, I.m struggling enough today as it is.  Just feel so tired and sick.  I wonder if anyone would notice if i curled up under my desk...such a tempting thought, at least it is cool!

Stay cool everyone!



#25 Aspiring2BaGiraffe

Posted 10 January 2013 - 11:52 AM

Sorry about your news prmrjr - best of luck for the future.

I'm off to see my GP today to get a referral for the OB, which I booked yesterday.  I am going to take DH to the hospital tomorrow to book into the birthing suite.  Don't want to miss out on that.

I have had such bad cramping since last Friday, but it finally has subsided.  I now only get cramping from wind! I'm hoping the GP has an idea for how to help with that.  I have to keep getting up and walking around to get it out! (sorry for TMI).

I also have really bad lower back pain, but I am on holidays and have spent a lot of time in bed and sitting on the lounge (playing guitar hero).  It usually happens to me at the end of every 6 week holidays, so I am hoping it is just from that.  

I haven't had any MS yet, just nausea yesterday afternoon about 3:30.  So we will see what happens today.

Just need to survive this heat!
Stay cool everyone!
