Hi Dudders & Blossom, huge congratulations to you both! I was a Jan 2014 buddy and was feeling nostalgic when I saw a 2015 thread. I can't believe a year has passed and I now have a beautiful 4.5 month old son, it's the most wonderful feeling ever. My reason for crashing tho was after reading you say that you were diving in and posting and talking about your pregnancy. I suffered a MC in the past and as a result was terrified the whole way through and I hated being pregnant I just wanted my baby here. Now it's a huge regret that I didn't enjoy every single moment as it all passes so quickly. Enjoy every second ladies and I wish you both a happy and healthy pregnancies enjoying every step of your bumps xxxx

Hi debs thanks for your lovely message and like you say must have been strange seeing the 2015 thread. Thanks for your comments and will try and take on board! First tri goes so slowly though and its hard not to wish it away and just have the prize at the end. Hopefully after next scan and if all is well I might feel a bit better but at the moment I just think its all going to get taken away. Bet your little boy is gorgeous and great to hear your doing well. Thanks again your post has helped.

HI All

I may be joining you in this thread, I have managed to get a scan for Saturday to see if I have a viable pregnancy. I will be nine and a half weeks then. I am just praying it is not another mmc as it was last time.

Hi amber congrats on your pregnancy and I hope Saturdays scan is good news for you. Having suffered 3x miscarriages myself and 1 being a mmc I know how you feel just waiting in limbo. The wait is a killer isn't it. Do you have any symptoms? Do you feel any different this time round?

Let us know how you get on and looking forward to getting to know you!.

HI Blossom

I have bad pregnancy sickness which is much worse than last time. I seem to have food aversions to most things except for fruit, rice, eggs and salted nuts. Can only drink water but struggling with the amount as it makes me feel so full. Got the usual sore boobs and been getting plenty of headaches, feel tired, emotional etc.

I was feeling a bit more hopeful but now the reality of the scan has made me a bit negative, it will be in the same place as my last mmc was diagnosed.

Have you had your first scan yet?

Amber

Hi amber the sickness and food adversions all sound like very strong positives signs all is progressing well. I know its worrying but it does sound promising, not long to go to put your mind at rest.
Yes I have had one scan at 7+1 but they dated me at 6+5 but had good heartbeat on scan so over the first hurdle but past experience still aware things can go wrong so anxiously waiting my scan on tuesday to check everything progressing.
Fingers crossed for us both

HI Blossom

Glad your first scan was okay, are you getting all your scans on the NHS? The EPU said that by having a scan on Saturday I wouldn't then get a 12 week scan.

Hi amber oh that's cheeky of them as you should still be entitled to your 12 week scan for the downs testing etc. I could understand if you were 11 weeks or so but not 9 and a half does seem a bit mean, will you pay for a private one inbetween to put your mind at rest? . My scans so far have all been private so the 12 week one will be my first nhs although due to my history I am able to go to epu for a scan but have resisted as had the 7 and 9 (will be 8 and a half) And due to the meds etc taking I had to be seen by clinic.

Hope the sickness eases soon. I have been lucky and not been sick but have had food adversions and waves of nausea

Amber - sorry to crash. I am pretty sure they can't say you wont get a 12 week scan as this is one that is done with down's testing and as a concrete measurement of due date. Have you been to a midwife and had booking in appt. I would get advice and ask the midwife or your doctor to refer you for your 12 week scan.
Hope you are all okay! And pregnancies are going well. Have you heard from Dudders? xxx

Oh yeah and are you getting any pains/cramps? Been on and off last few days for me and hoping its just everything stretching but as sure you are worry about every little niggle.

Also your sig says bfp at 8 weeks so did you find out late that you were actually pregnant?

HI Miracle & Blossom

I have a midwife booking appointment in a couple of weeks so if all is well I will take it up with them. I might look into private scans depending on how much they are. I have seen pictures of the 3D ones which look quite alien. How much are the private scans?

thanks
Amber

Hi Blossom

I knew I was pregnant around the 6 week mark as this was when the nausea and food aversions started, also AF didn't show. I only got it confirmed at 8 weeks when the sickness got unbearable. I didn't rush into testing as sometimes I feel it is better not knowing of a very early miscarriage.

Hi amber is that the earliest you can be seen by the midwife as in a couple of weeks you will almost be 12 weeks and the downs screening can only be done in a short window of time. Wonder if they might see you sooner if you speak to somone and explain?
Private scans can vary on area but range from about 100-150. I have to pay a consultation fee on top of mine but that won't apply for you if u are just booking a one off scan.
Miricle no not heard from dudders she not been on for ages but hoping she is ok.

HI Blossom

I could have had an appointment with the midwife next week however it is in the middle of the day and doesn't fit round work easily. I know from last time that they can arrange scans quickly if needs be, the downs screening can be up to 14 weeks so I could go in week 13 (if I am allowed!). Week 14 I am on holiday and can't wait to get away for a break.

Yes I do get odd feelings and bits of cramp and backache from time to time. This can also be your digestive system as it is quite sensitive in pregnancy. If there is no bleeding you are okay. True miscarriage pain hurts like hell and even prescription pain killers don't numb all the pain. Not an experience I want to relive. I know how it is easy to worry though. Best thing, get an early night as you can't worry about it when you are asleep!
