Corella, congrats on your scan original.gif  Mine was last Friday.  All good and most definitely a boy original.gif

I just saw your post in the last thread too.  Did you delete yourself?  I can try adding you again, but unfortunately I've had problems re-adding someone before. Apparently when you leave a group, there's a box you have to tick that allows you to be re-added.  Otherwise I can't do it (just gives an error message "you cannot add a former member")

I'll pm you original.gif

I didn't mean to leave - I have another group that was a Dig name (well another two actually) and deleted myself for the wrong one. I didn't think I ticked any boxes though?

Glad ur scans went well biggrin.gif RoLex and Corella!!!

I had scan booked for 8/03 but DH couldn't make it so just rung and changed it to 14/03 which is only just in the date range.
What is the date range? What can't they see if I leave it too late?
unsure.gif
Went to hospital last night. Had pains all day in upper abdomen, figured it was just RLP but when I read up about them they were meant to come and go and be a lot lower but these were searing, sharp and 24hrs!
ED was pretty good was in and out in about 3hrs. They only had Doppler to check little gremlin but found strong heartbeat ~160bpm, does that seem too fast for 16 weeks?
Dr. thought pains were intestine related and recommended Panadol, more fibre and lots of water. Do I need to increase fibre if I'm still regular?

Morph scan is supposed to be between 18-20 weeks.  I had mine at 19+4 and she even said they prefer doing it in the 20th week.  How far will you be on the 14th?

Also with your pains, I thought bowel issues as well, only because I know it well!  I have IBS and have suffered really badly with it this pregnancy.  Just had another attack on Monday night with vomiting, then hours of pains that feel so much like contractions, so painful.  Then diarrhoea.  Completely wiped me out.  So dehydrated and tired, I had Tuesday off work.  I thought I'd been 'regular' leading up to that episode too but it still happened.  I've been having a glass of pear juice each day (easy way to get your extra fibre as it doesn't taste too bad either), but I hadn't had any for the week beforehand.  I'm back on it again now!

integriti - my midwife wrote 20-22wks for me to go and have my morph scan (having it today at 20 wks), so it seems the time frame can Vary a bit. I hope you don't get much more pain, i felt silly going to ED when i had abdo pain, but it's always better to get checked, my pain resulted in emergency surgery for appendicitis!

Corella, how cute are the 20 wk scans. I looked at pics of DD1 &DD2 at 20 weeks, and i was amazed that i could recognise them , made me so excited for this morph scan  original.gif

Rolex, you poor thing, the bowel goes funny enough in pregnancy without having IBS as well. I have been drinking prune juice, but pear juice sounds much nicer!! do you make it yourself??


I have my morph scan this afternoon. I was booked in at 10am, but had to change to this afternoon because DH was working. I am so anxious to see everything is fine. And also got hit yesterday with feeling a lot of pressure. After 2 girls, my whole family is rooting for a boy. I am dreading telling people 'Another girl' because i feel like people will be disappointed for me. I am so cool about having a girl or a boy, it's just other peoples ideas getting to me i think. Anyway, i'll come back later on after the scan original.gif

I have my 20 week scan in a few days and I'm so excited to see blob look like a baby, I have yet to decide yes or no on finding out the sex. I change my mind constantly, one day I want to know the next I don't. This is my first and last, I'll be 41 when he/she is born and I am too old to go through the hell of pregnancy again so I want to do as much as possible as right as possible.
five people said boy, and ring test says girl. I have no idea, no feeling nothing. I'm  blank. I want to know if it's blue or pink which name I've picked out is it going to be. I love both names so much I sometimes wish I was having twins..just to use them both... original.gif
indigestion is bad, was up 13 hours with it last night, throwing up a lot and in major pain...Not fun.

No, it's sold in the supermarket by Goulburn Valley - 850ml yellow coloured tin.  You'll find it near the canned juices and poppers/tetra packs etc.  I swear by it!  All the best with your scan this arv biggrin.gif

foxgirls: How did the scan go? Fingers crossed for fingers, toes and all the perfect bits, as long as bub is healthy sex shouldn't cross your mind! (haha blue or pink not referring to the good sort!)
Glad you went to hospital too!!!!! For me getting the all clear is so worth the feeling that all hospital staff think pregnant women are hypochondriacs! Pain has subsided thankfully!

Rolex: I'll be 20+2 for my morph. Your pear juice has me salavating, I hheart.gif Santa Vittoria Pear Nectar but they are so bloomin small! I shall hunt for Goulburn Valley next time I'm in town!

Met with midwife on Friday. But she told me she was leaving in April, thus can't get too attached, she seemed so lovely though! Thyroid function test results this Friday, finally got my butt into gear and have a whole list of other questions to ask Doc too!

I still haven't told work yet... ddoh.gif Hopefully can work up the courage after morph!

VJs mummy, wishing you all the best for your scan , really hoping you leave the room on a high and that everything is perfect for you.

Rolex. Awesome, ta. I prefer the prune juice to metamucil but pear juice sounds even better again!

Debblah ,I didn't find out with my first, I am the most impatient person in the world, and waiting 40 wks to find out she was a girl nearly killed me, saying that, having the whole 'It's a girl moment' is something i am glad i have experienced in my life. But i figure i waited once, and then didn't have the will power to be that patient  to wait to find out this time or last pregnancy.

Integriti, glad the pain is easing for you. The scan went well. The guy who did the scan was lovely, he was the best we have ever had. so obviously loved his job. He pointed out everything to us and said baby was very obliging and that we will have a disk full of wonderful shots   biggrin.gif . DD1 asked about 50 times while we were in there 'do you know what it is yet'? And right at the end he goes 'so I already know what it is, but i'll go back down'..... 'so here you can see two lines, commonly referred to as the hamburger' (lol) 'your having a girl'
My girls in chorus 'Yaaaaay'!!!!  biggrin.gif
In all my scans (obviously having 2 girls already) i have never suspected i saw a little boys bits, and i could see it was all flat when he was looking at the tummy and legs right at the start, so anyway i'll stop blabbering, and we continue to think pink at our house  original.gif

Great news on all the wonderful scan results, I have gone from being absolutely sure i want to findout bubs gender to really not wanting to know although my whole family want to know there is a lot of "oh i really hope its a girl" or " dont worry you will have a girl this time" . I mean sure i'd love a girl but with my 3 wonderful little boys a girl may end up being a real tomboy anyway, i would just like a happy healthy baby original.gif scan is on friday morning really dont know whether to findout i'm not good with surprises but i dont think i can wait another 18 weeks to findout.

Hello expecting parents to be
I am new to the forum and this is my first ever post on a forum, I have read heaps of them but never before taken part. So I appologise if I don't get some of the lingo right.
I am currently 17w 2d pregnant with bubba number 1 due 31st July  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif
My husband and I are both extremely excited about becoming parents but at the same time have those scared moments I'm sure most first time parents have.
I would love to keep in touch with others that are in the same stages I am, I think it is nice to be able to share what we are all going through. As a first timer it has been quite full on with all of the sickness, tiredness and many many changes that are happening. I think it is absolutely amazing what the human body is capable of and even on my worst days I am still so thankful to be a woman that is blessed enough to be carrying a child  biggrin.gif

#17 Debblah

Posted 22 February 2013 - 10:42 PM

Well I went for my 20 weeks scan, asked the lady to write it down on a piece of paper and put it in the envelope I had with me, so that I could have it with me for when I made up my mind, also if my bf and I decided to open it we can have our special moment together, alone without being in a sterile room with a stranger. Its been three days and I have not cracked yet.
Lol yet.
It's in a draw, hidden away from prying eyes... while we wait and decide yes or no.
Seeing my baby move on the screen was amazing, he/she moved so much the lady had to wait a while to get some decent shots, moving his/her arms around and covering the face, moving head back and forth and side to side and rolling over, was sooo amazing.
I've always wanted to have that It's a girl/its a boy moment at the delivery, but I'm 20 weeks this week and it's taken forever and knowing there is another 20 weeks to go...far too long to wait. So we will have to wait and see.
My blood sugar is up and I'm close to having to insulin on top of bad indigestion, and throwing up, so at the moment I've very down, and cry all the time. Heat isn't helping, I can't wait for cooler/cold weather to start...
I'm trying to stay positive but it's hard 5 months of being sick almost every day, heat and now the chance of insulin for GD is just not fun.
I've decided to not like all the women who breeze through pregnancy and have it all smooth and happy, which includes one of my sisters who had 5 and wasn't sick once...grrr.

Thanks for the welcome VJs Mummy.

I have to wait a couple more weeks for my scan, booked in for the 16th of March. DH and I are both incredibly excited for this scan. DH missed out on coming to the NT scan so I can't wait for him to see bubba in full action :-)

Hi All,

This is my first post!

I am 18w 3d pregnant with my first baby biggrin.gif Our scan is booked for this Friday and we cannot wait to see bub again... We are not going to find out the sex - even though I dislike all neutral clothes and am finding it hard to resist at shopping.

Everything has gone rather well so far and I cannot complain. SMP87 your post sounded very similar to my situation (I am due on the 28th).

Looking forward to more of your posts and reading about your baby / pregnancy updates.

#23 FERALfoxgirls

Posted 27 February 2013 - 06:36 AM

AJV29, welcome to you original.gif The shopping part is so much fun!

Debblah, if i had that envelope it would call me from the draw like a ghost! You have some serious will power i think!

riverkirst, how cool to have a girl this time around. Are your boys happy to have a little sister?

I dont have much to report. I'm working between 2 and 4 days a week until the end of this term, and then may have just agreed to work right up til i have my CS next term. They then asked me to work 2 days a week in term 3&4. I never worked with my first 2, but this time the plan will be that baby will be home with dad, so I am thinking it should be fine if i can express, and work is 5 mins away so baby can always pop in for a feed. Such a stressful decision. There is no way i would consider it if it meant putting a tiny baby into daycare.
Still have days where i don't feel pregnant at all, and then other i get all symptoms at once! I think the insomnia is the worst ATM.

Hi Ladies,

Just wondering if I can join your DIG?  I am currently 20 weeks (today) pregnant with my 4th baby.  I have 3 beautiful sons and will find out tomorrow at our 20 week scan if we are adding another blue addition to our family.  I am fully expecting them to say its a boy and think I will be in shock if they say girl.  

My pregnancy so far has been so different from my last 3.  I am still nausous at 20 weeks (occassionally throwing up which only started last week).  The exhaustion is killing me this time but that may be from having 3 children to look after.  

Hope you are all well and enjoying your pregnancies!

RD xx

welcome to all the newbies biggrin.gif rubberducky I remember you around the threads a while ago original.gif

So exciting seeing all these u/s results. I cant wait for mine next week to find out if we will even it up with a boy or have another girl.

Debblah~that envelope would of been screaming at me to open it by now and i would of caved within 5 mins laughing2.gif

foxgirls~that would be a stressful decision going back when bubs is still so little but if daddy will be home it will make it much easier. I couldnt put a newborn in daycare either as all i would do all day is worry

Nothing much to report here apart from feeling bub more and more even felt some good kicks on the outside(DP misses everytime it happens lol). Oh and already feeling like a whale as I feel huge, even though dp and my family say i'm no where near as big as i was with the others lol.

Hopefully I wont get lazy and will start posting a bit more. Hope everyone has a great day and good luck to all who is having u/s this week original.gif

Take care all
Nat
