Hi all,

I have a question.  I am currently 18 weeks and all going well, touch wood.  I went to run for the train today on my way home and after about three steps, the pain!  I reckon baby bounced off the top of my pelvis and it Hurt!! ohmy.gif 40 minutes later, I could barely walk to the car and I am still sore.  I am not bleeding, thank goodness, but am in some discomfort and really don't want to walk or stand anywhere at all.  

Should I worry?  Is this normal?  I was in some discomfort yesterday, but just figured it was baby growing and stretching everything down there and I felt fine today... until I tried running, that is!

Anyone else able to help put my mind at rest or offer any advice please?

Thanks all  biggrin.gif

Teds- I'm not sure what the pain is but it sounds really uncomfortable if it still hurts tomorrow I would see your dr...you might have just stretched a muscle or something hope you feel better soon xx

How is everyone else??

teds - i had a cimilar thing happen and the pain went away the next day. Like noahs mum said head to the docs if its there for too long. My general rule is if there is no blood and pain doesnt last more then a few hrs I'm all good - if in doubt call OB. Hope it improves for you.

How is everyone today? I'm plodding along nothing exciting here. Scan next monday can't wait. I loaded a bump pic on my blog and can't wait for it to get bigger as time goes on  biggrin.gif

Helllo all! All is well here with me and bump. We have our 20 week scan tomorrow and we're hoping to find oout if Im' getting my boy!  biggrin.gif Not that I mind at all if he's a girl - it's just that I'm so sure that he's a boy that if he does turn out to be a she I'll have to get used to the idea.  laughing2.gif  Plus I can't wait to go shopping!

I'm still not feeling any kicking yet, but a lot of little fluttering movements that are getting more pronounced as the days go by. And i'm starting to get the round ligament pain too, so I can sympathise on that one Teds! I haven't tried running, but I did give the 'nut bush' a go at an engagement party 2 weeks ago, and the first time I jumped to turn it brought tears to my eyes! I was in real discomfort there for about 2 hours afterward, but fine the following morning. No more nut bush for me for a while! I really didn't think I was that big yet, but apparently things are more fragile internally than i had realised!

Hope everyone is going well - I will jump in tomorrow after our scan!

Teds - I agree with the others. Always best to get it checked out. I've been getting some pain too, but not enough to stop me wanting to walk. That sounds awful.

Ards & Jedi - good luck with the scans! Mines still 11 sleeps away... Feels like forever! I'll be 21 weeks by then. I can feel the little nugget kicking around a lot though, and it's just lovely!

Hope everyone's well

Well, we had our 20 week scan today and guess what - he's a she!   laughing2.gif I've been so convinced since I had my dream that I was getting a boy, but she's definitely a she! DH and I are thrilled - and I've been out on my lunch break today and bought a couple of beautiful little things from Target to celebrate!

If today's scan is anything to go by, I think she's going to be quite a handful though - first she was lying on her back and wouldn't turn, then when the sonographer poked and prodded enough to get her to turn she turned so that her back was facing, which gave us a great view of her spine, but not the view of the heart that the sonographer wanted! Then after a lot more poking, prodding, and a trip to the bathroom for me, she finally turns over.....and sticks her arm in front of her chest!  roll2.gif I was trying so hard not to laugh out loud at that point, and I could see DH trying to keep a straight face too. I can't help but think we're going to have a real little live wire on our hands if she's already causing trouble and she's not even been born yet! Although she did finally move her arm and let us get a good view of a very healthily beating heart, which was reassuring. I love hearing and seeing that heartbeat!  wub.gif

I hope all is well with everyone and I'll try and jump onto the facebook site tonight.

Cheers - Sarah.

Morning Ladies!!

I have been a bit slack both in here and the FB group!! Just been really busy, but I generally get time everyday to stalk the FB group (just so easy with the app on my phone when I'm on the train on my way home!!).

My 20 week scan is on Wednesday. I'm so excited and a little bit nervous at the same time!! I'm sure that I have been feeling little kicks (as I said in FB if they aren't kicks it's super funky gas pains!!) so I feel that everything is OK, but it just would be nice to see that everything is where is is supposed to be.

Teds - I was the same yesterday, I had some stabby, sharp pains in my lower abdomen on the left hand side. I had a read in what to expect and it said possibly the ligaments stretching, and I think that's what it was. It did really hurt though and I had to sit down. After sitting for about an hour it got a little bit better and today it is pretty much gone. Maybe that's what you had too - but like the other girls have said, make sure you go to the doc if it's still there or you just need some reassurance wink.gif I'm sure everything is just fine.

Hi Sarah - think I said this in the FB group but again, congratulations on your bub being a little girl ppinkstork.gif  babygirl.gif  ppinkstork.gif  babygirl.gif Great news! Haha funny she sounds like she will keep you busy!!

Well, I'm off to lunch for my best friends hubby's birthday... Of all places, off to Hooters. Hold me back... Should be good for a laugh anyway!!

Have a great weekend girls, hope you all have something nice planned

Jediintraning- congrats on the little girl...that is so precious!! Great to hear everything is in the right place ect

Well have to wait until Thursday for my scan first thing though which is great so excited can't wait to see 'popcorn' as DH calls it and see whos been kicking me lol!!

Hope you all have a great weekend xx

Hi All

I had to have two scans last week because the placenta is growing over the cervix. They reckon this is very common and often moves in the last few weeks. Mine is at the back though, and they say there is less chance of it moving.

Has anyone had this before that can tell me the outcome? I am scared sh*tless of having a cesarian, however i suppose a planned cesarian is better than an emergency one after having had to be in labour for several hours...

Thanks for all your feedback on the pelvic pain.  I went to the doctor and he said bed rest for two days and some panadol would fix it completely. Well, two days later it still hurts to walk any distance at all.  So I spoke to my sister who had pelvic pain all through her pregnancy and she said go to a physio and get a support belt.  And I will be in pain for the rest of my pregnancy, very sorry sis.  Oh, and baby is fine. I swear I felt baby turning over today.  Lots of stretching movements going on there.  And little kicks and flutters.  Awwwwwee....

Good luck to you all going in for scans in the next week or so.  Mine's in a week Tuesday where we will play 'spot the willie' to see what flavour we are having.  Sorry I don't have any advice for you Ambrotius.  Generally though, if the doctors aren't too concerned, that should be a good sign?

Hi everyone,

Just a quick one. Had our morphology scan today - 19w2d. I was a bit worried because I've hardly been feeling any movement (blame the anterior placenta) and then I got food poisoning on Friday from some smoked salmon (I know, what was I thinking - I made sure it was hot though!) and spent most of the weekend throwing up.

Anyway, all is good, didn't get very good pics, baby is a bit squirmy. Only concern is a small (1.3mm) hole in the heart, which apparently often will heal on its own. I need another scan in a couple of months to see what's happened, and we'll go from there.

And we didn't find out the sex - was slightly tempted, but we had agreed not to.

Ambrotious- I'm sorry I have no advice either but have herd the same as you regarding that it is common I hope it moves with time and hope you ok :-)

Teds-sorry to hear that it's going to stay but on the upside side at least your feeling movement now it still amazes me everytime I feel a kick!!

Flyingkiwi-ahhh I hate food poisoning or any other sickness that involves vomiting glad it went away though also sorry to hear about the scan I hope it fixes it's self before bubs is born xx

Afm hanging out for Thursday can't wait to see bubs again!!

Teds - Ive been having quiet abit of pain in my pelvis/ tail bone area for nearly 2 months the pregnancy belly belt/ back brace helped at first but now i'm getting further along it doesn't really seem to be helping much they are great for initial pain but i have also been told i'm just going to have to put up with it for the rest of the pregnancy the only thing i can do is constant rest but i'm not willing to give up work fulltime yet sad.gif i hope all goes well for you.

we have our next scan on the 14th of november to find out what we are having i'm hoping a girl since all my dreams have been about a baby girl and also cause my partners family has had 5 generations of only boys being born so it would be great to finally give the family a girl born into the family but we will have happy with what ever it decides to be.

good luck to everyone for the scans coming up original.gif
