DUE JANUARY 2012 :) Rss

Hi Ladies I'm new here and so glad I found this thread. smile

I'm due on 3rd Jan. This will be our first baby but its my 3rd pregnancy after two miscarriages in 2009 so very nervous at the moment!!

Myrrah I hope your appointment goes well today I have everything crossed for a good result.
hi all, well its pretty much a wait and see game for me now, as expected the doc couldnt really confirm anything, she did a vaginal exam and said my cervix is not open which is a good sign, but there is fresh blood which is not.. i had bloods done today and will get them another 2 times every 48hours and ive been referred to a womens health clinic at the hospital for scans, ill have a scan 2moro, essentially its treated as a 'suspected miscarriage' and hopefully ill know for sure either way in a few days, its the limbo that sux!

anyway im doing ok atm, DP is being amazing, so we will see smile

Good Luck with the blood test Myrrah *hugs* Will be thinking of you!

Pretty scary here in Auckland today with the tornado!! Eeeek! Im not near that side of Auckland but the clouds were looking nasty when I was driving home from picking my son up from daycare at 3.30!
I saw that on the news! scary! I'm from Nelson and we had an earthquake here tonight was 5.0 apparently. Seems like NZ is getting hit with all sorts of natural disasters recently.
Yeah poor NZ! Must just be a year for random weather etc! Aussie have had some crap weather too, hopefully it all blows over soon.

Its a cracker day in Auckland today though, clear blue skys and sun, so the storm/tornado, cleared the air!

How's everyone feeling today? Will be thinking of you Myrrah! xx

Im feeling queazyish this morning, I need to eat though, and I have a icky cold, which sucks.
Morning ladies I hope those in NZ are all safe smile I'm in Aus and it was heartbreaking to see the destruction from the earthquake..

The weather over here is starting to get cooler.. The sun is trying to break through the clouds so might be a nice day and I can take the kids to the park for a play smile Yesterday was raining and cold nothing worse than being stuck inside with busy boys...

The last few days I have been feeling pretty good just hungry lol.. I get some pressure down there and a little sore at times but all good I hope just things stretching...

I'm really not looking forward to full blown MS to kick in I really hope I skip it this time.. It is going to be hard doing the school run & looking after 2 young kids whilst hanging my head in a bucket lol oh well the joys of early pregnancy grin

Mum to 3 gorgeous boys...

Im having the pulling and heavy feeling as well, and I am SO hungry all the time!

I was the same with my first 2 as well, but I had bad MS with my son from 5ish weeks until 16 weeks, and with my daughter it was as bad, just nausea no vomiting, I hope I don't get it bad this time, as I'm so not looking forward to looking after 2 toddlers feeling like crap!

Oh I forgot to say welcome to young_bub, so Welcome!! grin You are due the same time as me smile That sucks about the MS already! hopefully it doesn't last too long for you!

and also hi to lozzie!!!
hi guys
and big hi to all the new mummy-to-be's!!
also I hope everyone in Auckland is doing ok, scary stuff!

Ok so quick update, my scan has been pushed back until tomorrow, ive been referred to the women's health clinic which is at the public hospital, Ill go in there tomorrow morn at 9am and get my second blood tests done to check if hcg is rising and also have my first scan. I got my first hcg results today and they were actually surprisingly good, my hcg was over 9000... but then of course my bleeding increased some today and now has little tiny clots in it too and ive got light cramping.. its never straight forward is it!!

Hi Ladies! 1stly Myrrah I am thinking of you and hope that your next lot of bloods are excellent and the rest of your pregnancy is smooth sailing!!! You are in my prayers

Our background is

#1 preg. conceived 1st month and had a dream pregnancy - gestational diabetes and kidney stones but they affected me not bub so I say dream run! Happy and very energetic little man is now 14 months)
#2 preg. conceived Nov 2010 straight away while breastfeeding once mirena removed but ended in missed m/c after a marathon 5 wk wait as we weren't sure of dates it happened so quickly. D&C jan this yr @ roughly 10wks although bub just shy of 7wks.
#3/this pregnancy conceived on 3rd cycle of trying after waiting for AF to return after D&C (to be sure of dates this time) so far not spotting (touch wood!!!).

I have been sort of stalking you all on this thread since last week but hadnt yet signed up for a few reasons but mainly I am so nervous about this pregnancy that I had convinced myself that if I didnt completely acknowledge this pregnancy then it wouldn't hurt so much if we were unlucky again. Mind you I have been feeling like the worst and most neglectful mother in doing so the whole time!!!

I started charting 2 cycles ago and have continued as I thought if things didnt go well then @ least I would have some data for OBGYN to figure out whats going on. The last 2 days it has been a major form of stress for me though as my temps yesterday and today have dropped each day - not below my coverline but todays is below of Ov spike! Despite not being booked into see OBGYN until 7wks (I didnt want to go earlier and see ambiguous scans that could be bad or could be because it was too early like last time) I called today and he ordered a HCG & Progesterone test to see how things are going as Im concerned that the decrease in temps are because of dropping progesterone and he said that could be the case although not definately - so we'll find out tomorrow. If things are good then hopefully I can worry a little less - he uses higher thresholds too so if he considers it good then its very good by most specialists terms. He also recommended not temping anymore if it is causing me stress as it isnt 100% reliable in pregnancy. If things are not so good then we wait it out - progesterone suppl. apparently are not proven to work in unasissted pregnancies (do work in IVF but thats not us) and only decrease ur stress levels (if you dont know that they dont work of course).

So thinking about this possibility has well and truly shown me that it doesnt hurt less if you have bonded less - in fact quite the opposite for me as I feel so guilty for trying to ignore it. So I figured Id finally pluck up the courage to get on here and @ least make sure that someone other than my hubby and a very close friend know that we could be having a baby in jan 2012 and that we love it very very much!!!

So onto the more normal things - so far I have been tired and having the usual mild cramping and heaviness and tender breasts on and off. I have also had some rib and thorasic discomfort that I didnt have with our little man until just over 20wks (he was 9lb 7 1/2oz and Im a size 10 so I think he was trying to make some extra room for later) so I've started doing the stretches that the physio gave me with him and will book in to see her after 1st trimester just to make sure that its still working - and get a massage while Im there of course!!! The stretches seem to be working really well - doing them every 2nd day although definately need it by end of 2nd day if I am working and sitting down a lot more than I do @ home. Im not feeling super hungry like some - my appetite has actually decreased but this was the same with our little man - actually lost weight in 1st trimester which was a worry but fine after that.

Anyway congrats to you all on your BFP's and growing bundles and fingers super super crossed that we all get to spend roughly 8 months here chatting together and announce the birth of our healthy happy bundles to everyone then!!!
oh and we'll be due 6th Jan - sorry forgot that very important piece of info!
