Very sorry to hear your news pecking bird, please take care.

We have an ant problem too, I think it's the weather we've been having (coupled with the scraps dh has been leaving on the bench sick.gif

We decided last night to delay our kitchen Reno so we could keep more of a buffer in the bank. Bit disappointed but if we went ahead the end of the year would have been way too tight for my comfort.

SIlver!

Sorry to hear the news Peckingbird..

I'm trucking along slowly, 9 weeks 4 days today. No real morning sickness still, not really feeling anything! If I hadn't already had a scan and seen the little peanut I'd find it hard to believe i'm pregnant! The only real symptom is my poor bleeding gums!! Anyone else having this? I've always had problems with my gums, used to have peridontal disease but have had it under control for some time. So i am SUPER vigilant with my dental hygiene so it's distressing me to have such red and inflamed gums. I've googled it and it seems common, but i've booked into to see my dentist for a clean anyway.

Waterdragon: 12 week scans, I'm having mine as a public patient at the RHW in Randwick, Sydney and it costs $80. I'm pretty pleased with that. I think the bloods cost 80 as well.... My dating scan was done at a private place but they have an arrangement with my GP so it was bulk billed, yay!

Congrats to everyone!! I'm finding it hard to keep up with everyone, so I keep tending to lurk and not write but I'm trying to snap out of it.

Anyone else in Sydney?

bronze!!

finally remembered my password so i could log in... have been watching as a guest though lol.

Sorry to hear your news peckingbird... keep positive.. it will happen. x

AFM.. finally have my initial doc appointment tomorrow morning... im guessing im 8/9 weeks. hoping ill get a scan to be sure. Been sooo tired... i remember being tired with DD but not like this!! Also have a bit of nausea, keep losing my morning cuppa no matter how slowly i approach it... so for the first time in who knows how long i didnt have one this morning... and felt like crap because of it... lol.
My tum looks constantly bloated... but i think im managing to disguise the whole thing cause no one has said anything (in this town people are pretty up front with gossip!)

my girlfriends and i are booking a day at the spa in march so will try and hold off til then and tell them at lunch.. cannot wait to see ntheir faces! one of them know on a professional capacity and she has a 5 month old so im getting all her things that i dont still have from DD... As well as boys clothes if its a boy lol.. so im sorted.

Hope everyone with ms is doing ok.. hopefully it calms down amd goes away come 12weeks!

Grrrrr..... I was typing a big fat long post when the old thread was locked. Lost it all.
Pecking Bird- I am so sorry sad.gif
I had my 'dating' scan yesterday. No real reason for me having one besides wanting to have a look and check that there was something in there. The sonographer thought it was too early for a dating scan at 6w 5d, and that we wouldnt see anything.
Anyway, once she stopped giving me the third degree about having a scan ( she shut to after I told her I had had an early MC in September so was anxious) we got to see a little bean positioned perfectly in the uterus with a fabulous heartbeat, measuring pretty good for dates. My due date by LMP is 20 September, the scan put my due date at 25 September which is probably more accurate as I ovulate later in my cycle and I have a shorter luteal phase.  By measurements, i was 6 weeks exactly yesterday and the heartbeat was 115.
I am going to stick with a due date of 20 September until my first hospital visit when they no doubt will tell me my 'official' due date.
Morning sickness has kicked in big time  sick.gif I think a few people might be on to me at work as I looked like a pale, clammy mess today!

Thanks minimae!!

I've had awful MS and fatigue this time around. Truly awful. I'm ten weeks now and just staring to come clear of it, thank god - but still needing a daily nap! Hilarious. I've been needing them since six weeks. And weeing EVERY night without fail. My body's really going all out this time  sick.gif my sympathy to everyone in the same boat!

After reading all these comments about ants yesterday, I woke up in pain during the night because an ant bit my foot!! It stung for like an hour! As if it's not bad enough that I'm awake half the night because I need to pee all the time!

I'm telling my boss today that I'm pregnant. I wrote a separate post about it, but basically they're currently arranging a 3 month overseas posting for me in March. I've made the decision that I don't want the extra stress of working two jobs while I'm there, and not having DH with me for support, so I need to tell them to put the brakes on. Hopefully they will be understanding and not make things difficult for me.

Well it looks like the peeing curse has hit. lol

Last night and the night before I had to get up 3-4 times to pee.

Ahh damn ants Bec, I've been trying to keep the kitchen clean but DH seems unaware of the fact left out food and crumbs attracts them.....despite my daily raging. rolleyes.gif

Going to see if i can find a new pillow today, other than peeing, i'm having some difficulty staying asleep which is not normal for me. I'm overdue a new pillow anyway so we'll see if that helps.

I'm having trouble sleeping too, and this is a recently updated pillow. I feel like I can only sleep in half hour blocks  sad.gif

It's terribly frustrating, the sleep thing, isn't it. I already have a toddler so am still suffering sleep deprivation from the last two years - I certainly didn't need LESS sleep than I already get!!!!

Posted 01 February 2013 - 10:52 AM

Hey guys, just had my follow up scan and all is looking good, by dates I am 8w2d by scan 8w4d so all good. Told my first person afterwards, a good friend I had been avoiding a bit as I normally drink with her and I thought she would know something was up - she thought I was p*ssed off with her LOL so she was excited and relieved.

Still not going to tell my kids until 12 weeks+, after the next scan, so will try not to tell anyone else in the mean time.

I have had the worst trouble sleeping too  sad.gif  I need the sleep but I just can't switch off.

M/s still here, I'm so over it. Last night my DH made bread int he breadmaker and the whole house stunk like bread, I was dry-retching everywhere, so gross. I felt like I couldn't breathe properly because of the stink!!

I can't remember who asked about paying for scans - I have been public for all of mine and have always paid, this one and the one I had at 6w have both been about $180 and you get $50 back, the next one at 12w is $250 or something I think. I did see a note in the letter I have to give to my GP that said there is a public ultrasound place that is bulk-billed, but when I looked it up it was apparently hard to get in to and it is a lot further away from me, so I couldn't be bothered. I'll leave the spots for someone who truly has no money.

Hope everyone else is well (as well as can be). Good news on so many scans going well  biggrin.gif


Oh and peckingbird I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you are okay.

#13 Choufleur

Posted 01 February 2013 - 11:53 AM

peckingbird - so sorry to hear about your loss, be kind to yourself

ants - we did have a lot around but i can only see a couple at the moment. They seem to come out when it's really dry, they look for water. I just ignored them this time though and let them walk on by

sleeping - I've been struggling to sleep at night, last night I didn't sleep til about 1am, and then I was up at some crazy hour to pee again. I am just shattered.

I'm really tired every day, it's worse the days I'm at work. I only work part time but I find by the time I get to Thursdays (my 3rd day) I can barely get out of bed. Yesterday morning I felt so sick that I went back to bed and didn't go to work til after lunch. I told some of the people in my team I had a bug from DD. Noone blinked an eye *phew*

I'm going to borrow a couple of dresses from a girl in my IRL MG as they're a different shape from anything I have and I can probably get away with my growing belly for a few more weeks at work.  I don't want anyone at work to know at least until I've seen the OB and seen that little heartbeat on the screen.

scans - I'm in Sydney too but private. I remember the first scan being about $250 and the next one $350? Apparently the queues to get into the public ones are longer and I don't have the patience.  I've never heard of a private OB bulk billing for anything...!

Right... must go and eat MORE food.

Great news for those who've had good scans today & yesterday.

Nothing to report here.. Still really early so it's pretty boring atm.

#15 bec_1108

Posted 01 February 2013 - 04:13 PM

Well I spilled the beans to my boss today. He was pretty good about it really. They'll put my overseas stint on hold for now. I might still be going to Switzerland for a conference for a couple of weeks.

The sleeping thing is weird. A couple of weeks ago I was sleeping like a log, even though I needed to pee about three times a night, I'd always go back to sleep straight away. Now I'm lying awake for an hour each time I get up!

I know there are a few ladies with autoimmune disorders on here. Unfortunately I have to report that pregnancy looks to be making things worse for me at the moment. Getting some bloods done but looks like I'll need to start medication again after being in remission for five years. Boo sad.gif

Hi Ladies.

No ants or trouble sleeping here - touch wood.

Just super wacky dreams and today I've got cracked nips - what?!
Still so bloated. I wonder if I am just showing really early (already?). It used to be gone in the morning but now there is a permanent pudge. :0

Feeling so relaxed after the scan yesterday. It was so nice to see the little blip on screen.
Booked in for NT scan on Valentines Day and then we are going to announce it to everyone which will be very exciting.

Sorry to hear you have to go back on meds bec. sad.gif

#17 Choufleur

Posted 02 February 2013 - 10:41 AM

bitingmynails - I had really dry & itchy nipples at about 12 or 14 weeks with DD. I bought some lasinoh from the chemist and used it for a week or so and it fixed it right up, didn't need it again until DD was born.  Just buy a tiny tube of the stuff, it's all you'll ever need. original.gif

#23 Kobella

Posted 02 February 2013 - 02:54 PM

Hanz- I am so sorry to hear your news- take care of yourself x

Again again- glad to hear all is well!

Showing early - for those who have had more than 1 baby- when do you start showing?! I am ok in the mornings but by night time I am so bloated! I look about 4 mths along eeek! I am wearing looser clothes in the Arvo as I don't want to tell anyone yet! My clothes fit fine and I have not gained any weight so I suspect it is hormones, no way a baby can be showing at only 7.1 weeks! wink.gif , even if this is my 3rd.

We are off to a Japanese night at the neighbors tonight and I am freaking out how to keep my secret- firstly drinks ( and I always drink!), secondly raw fish, sushi etc. they make it all themselves but I don't want to eat any raw fish at all (normally I love it!). Am thinking of just saying I have an upset stomach to try get away with it- any other ideas?  They are going to be so suss!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend x

So sorry hanz sad.gif

I never stopped showing from my last pregnancy lol. The doctor I seen this morning asked if I was sure I wasn't 16 weeks when I said I was 6. Luckily I was booked in to him by accident & won't have to see him ever again.

Blood results all look normal. Cholesterol is a little high but they won't do anything about that while I'm pregnant, I guess if it's an issue down the track I'll have to make some changes to my diet. I do eat pretty well though so not sure what changes I can even make.

Starting to get some nausea. It's only when I'm hungry & still very manageable.

Kids are calling, hope everyone is well.
