Rach im so very sorry to hear of your loss. that's a horrible way to find out.

Well ladies we had our scan yesterday and everything is well and ticking along smoothly. Im 7+1 today measuring 9mm with a healthy heartbeat of 138. Im not sure if this is good or average but the sonographer seemed pleased :) DH was amazed and i think it finally made it "real" for him. Also no TWINS much to DH's disappointment he was really counting on twins (I was not!).

As for cravings all I want is cheese and olives. I have eaten multiple jars. I find milk is soothing and if I drink to much water too quickly I get really sick. so many things are a trigger for me so I have to be careful.

I just sat through a 3 and a half hour meeting with only a cup of tea and just about ate my arm I was so hungry.

Have many of you told your boss or a work colleague? I've been getting questioned a lot due to my sickness and lack of coffee (I usually have a bad coffee habit but cant stomach it now) and I feel my boss knows something is up so I should tell her?

Rach I'm so sorry.  I'm 39 too and conceiving at our age is an amazing feat in itself.  So cruel to have it taken away.  A friend has just been through the same, she's 40.  She opted for a D&C.  I wish you all the best at this sad time.

It doesn't take long to get attached to our little babies does it? Just a few weeks and you're already mapping out your future. I really feel for all those who have recently had that taken away.

Also don't you think it's easy to focus on the physical effects of pregnancy, when actually the mental/emotional effects can be equally hard to tolerate?

I think I definitely have developed "baby brain" already, doing silly things and being quite absentminded. Yesterday my husband says "I'm a bit worried how you're functioning outside the house"! Who knows? I'm oblivious...

I'm watching One Born and I feel like a witch because I don't like any of the mums on there tonight :-/ the midwives and mums, however, I love!

Possum I know what you mean with colleagues getting nosy about symptoms! "Coffee walks" are a big thing in my office and my absence of my usual daily Capp is being noticed. I just can't stomach coffee lately :-( our receptionist, bless her, told me privately that back in December she had a dream about me being pregnant! It was so funny, we've never talked about babies or anything together before either. She will be so wrapt when I announce at work!

Rach i am so sorry- I can't imagine how heartbreaking it must be. Surround yourself with loved ones and look after yourself xxx

Well I'm over and out.  Dr confirmed my HCG levels have halved in 72 hours.  So this will be the 2nd miscarriage in 6 months.  Kill me now seriously.  What's the point in living if you can't have a family?

Fairy bub, I'm so sorry to hear. It will happen for you, take care of yourself sweet xox

Fairybub, I'm so sorry. A lot of women (my best friend included) have had a few miscarriages & go on to have babies. Please tell your doctor how your feeling, & your partner.

Ladies who've been there done that, I've started to feel a bit nauseas in the morning ((along with headaches) & yesterday my stomach ached, not cramps but sore. When I went to the toilet I noticed 1 spot of brown in mucous CM. I know it's old blood, but from what?
I have a very vascular cervix so expected a bit of blood while pregnant , had it quaterized a few years ago the bleeding was so bad, but I guess I still feel a bit nervous. Had this happened to anyone else.

Fairybub sorry to hear sending you hugs

elemeno brown blood is old blood you should only panic if it is bright red are you a negative blood group? that old blood could be because you DTD as your cervix is more sensitive during pregnancy if you are worried go to the dr

#73 heatherdv

So sorry fairybub, its so unfair.  Take some time for yourself and don't give up on your dream.  You will have your family.  xx

#74 DecafJane

Posted 30 January 2014 - 07:17 AM

I'm so sorry, Fairybub.

As the others have said, I know quite a few women who had several miscarriages and still ended up having a family. There is hope. X

Elemeno, I lost a lot of blood (bled properly for 6 weeks from 12 weeks pregnant including losing clots) while pregnant with DD1. A part of the placenta had separated from the uterus near the internal os and had bled into the space there, and took 6 weeks to come out. It was horrific.
But a spot? Don't worry too much unless you get more and other symptoms that something isn't right. And if your gut is telling you that you need reassurance, go to your doctor. X

Hi All,

Rachel and Fairybub I am so sorry for your losses. Thinking of you, and hope you are doing ok.

How exciting for those of you who have already done scans! I won't be doing one till week 13, so still 6 weeks to go, unfortunately. My main problem these days is sleeping properly. I wake up at 4 or 5 am and find it hard to get back to sleep for at least an hour! Does anyone else have this problem? Still not much MS surprisingly, compared to last time, but its early days so will see what happens there.

I have gone off sweet food completely, and always want chicken and sometimes spicy food. My best mate reckons this means I'm having a boy!

Are the "One Born Every Minute" episodes new or are they repeats, does anyone know?
