Hey ladies. Back after a few days away. My midwife has decided I'm not due 30th Nov, from LMP 23rd Feb, I'm now due 2nd Dec?!? Roll on scan to give me yet another due date!
Good idea about the introductions!
I'm Stacey, I'm 21, but 22 when the Royals marry (so nice of them to give my OH a day off work for my birthday ). I have a gorgeous daughter, Isabelle Amber, who was 15 months old on the 14th. I had an early m/c in Nov which got me into a very bad place. Isabelle and this baby here have been shock babies - I was on the pill! Unplanned, but in no way unwanted. We're moving to Reading in a few weeks as Paul works there. Not looking forward to that, but, it's just going to be a stop gap. I used to work in a shop but left to look after Isabelle. Paul asked me to marry him on the 6th of April, so lots of shocks have happened this year!
Hope everyone is well.
I still can't be sick. So need to, and keep almost being, but four days of having my head down the loo and nothing. Also feeling a lot more tired than usual. Had an hour and a half long nap today with Isabelle And an hour yesterday. Hope it helps!
Take care ladies and mini babes xxx

Post subject: introductions
Hello everyone, Cant believe its scan time for some of you already Very exciting. I dont get my scan until 12 weeks so a while to go yet. Great idea about the introductions -
My name is Kathryn and I am 26 years old. I live in Scotland and work as an ITU nurse - which I really enjoy. This is my first pregnancy and I am super excited (and a little nervous)!! I live with my partner robert. He is 27 and works in pay roll. We got engaged on the 12th of dec last year and are getting married in sept 2012 so the baby will be around 9 months by then (fingers crossed its enough time to lose the baby weight). So I am currently in the middle of wedding planning (going dress shopping next week - plan is to get one before any bump arrives).
I am enjoying reading all your stories and look forwards to sharing our pregnancy experiences. Hopefully Dec will come quick. Glad every one is doing well - even though some of you are having morning sickness . I have not had any yet but have been some tired this week just cant seem to get enough sleep. I am 6weeks and one day (not that I am counting lol) and have my first appointment at the dr tomorrow. so I will let you know how it goes. see you all soon xx

So lovely to hear about you all! Sorry I have been awol, I have been SO SICK! We only have internet at the office & I could barely walk to the toilet let alone to the office so I have been laid up the last few days. Have tried everything I can get my hands on to help (which isn't that much!) & in the end bought the tablets, but couldn't take them! I just kept thinking, I am already on progesterone tabs/weekly injections plus the aspirin & or course the vits/folic acid, I just couldn't subject the little bubba to more meds! My OH just does not know what to do with me & thought that the tabs would be the answer so I have been telling him I have been taking them, & he thinks that they're obviously just not working!
Even though I feel as rough as "@"@, that maternal instinct to protect just takes over, so I just trying to suck it up & get on with it without the tabs but its not that easy! Have had a couple of emotional meltdowns whilst in the loo, just because I am exhausted & feel about 180 years old, but I sit there looking at myself in the mirror thinking 'god you look rough' & then I find myself saying 'but Nikki, its all good, its all good!' How crazy is it that you feel terrible but you keep telling yourself its a good thing!
Also no spotting for a few days now, so feeling better about that now, boobs have done a growth spurt & are tender, to be honest they're just in my way! I used to think I wanted a boob job but its amazing how these bigger boobs just annoy me! That's just saved me a few £££'s knowing I DO NOT ever want a boob job!!
Anyway hope everyone is doing good, scans going well & bubbas sticking tight! My scan will probably be 2 weeks today...feeling apprehensive about it already but but trying to put it to the back of my mind! xxx

My turn tried to do this the other day but it wouldn't post
I'm Toni, 23 this year. I'm another Scottish lassy . I have a gorgeous wee boy who is 2 and a half This will be OHs first baby but he is already the most fantastic daddy to our boy, we couldn't have asked for a better daddy in all honesty had 3 MCs in the past year, this is the furthest in to pregnancy we have managed and we are feeling very positive that this one is a sticky We got engaged on October last year! We are getting married in February next year Should be around 10 weeks between baby and wedding! Eeekk Got a busy year ahead, really have to learn to drive! If everything goes to plan I will be working part time, studying full time, learning to drive and planning a wedding all with a bump while trying to chase my very active toddler about oh I can't wait, this will be the best year ever!
Got my scan on Thursday, feeling very nervous although all the symptoms are getting stronger so thats reassuring

Havent been able to get on computer as my internet connection is acting up.Typical .
Well my name is Sharon im 29 and another scottish mummy, something in the water by the looks of it . Ive been married to my husband for 4 years and we have a 5 year old daughter called Kenzi. I work as a nursery teacher, love my job but its gettin more tiring by the day . We lost a baby girl at 16 weeks in November last year to Edwards syndrome,it was diagnosed at 12 week scan so just cant wait to get 1st scan over with and maybe relax a little. We havent told any1 about the pregnancy as we want to wait for 1st scan, i think i may have to sew my mouth up though as is its so hard not to tell. My hubbie works away on the oil rigs so im lookin 4 someone to share my moans, groans and exitement with.
Looking forward to hearing every1s scan news and reading your stories over the following weeks.

Hello Ladies, hope the little bubbas are doing well! Well I am still a chunder guts & there doesn't seem to much I can do about it. Didn't have any last time so this is all new territory. Have tried whatever I can get my hands on which is not much where I am but have so far tried, ginger tea, ginger biscuits, ginger beer, lucozade (tip from my mum!), crackers, plain bread, flat lemonade (my mothers hangover cure!), but to no avail. I think I am just destined to be a chunder guts! This morning particularly bad since I attempted to come to the office. I've been taking the pregnacare vits with the extra cod liver oil. Now I am a vegetarian (by choice for last 21 years) but if you tell me taking a fish oil is gonna help my bubbas development then I'm taking it. All has been fine up until this morning when I started feeling sick & wondered why all I could taste was fish!! Its not nice for anyone, let alone a vegetarian to have the stench of fish oil in my mouth!! Anyway thought that would make you laugh!
My other troublesome problem is constipation, I don't think my bowels have slowed down.......they have stopped! Its been very uncomfortable the last week, I think all this extra progesterone is not helping! Had to call my obs lady for help in what was ok to take that I could get my hands on & she told me this Dulphalac Syrup. So I have had to get a friend in Kampala to buy it, put it on a plane & it should be arriving to little me, lost in the wilderness some time later today! I am hoping by tomorrow, I will be half the woman I am now! ha ha
Otherwise all is good! I am feeling a little apprehensive now though about the next 2 weeks. I know for me the coming 2 weeks is going to be a big milestone for me & the bubba. Although I am dreading the scan, I think I just NEED to know that all is ok!
Love to you all xx

starlightmum - hope your ok and the spotting has settled down? I just thought I would mention to you that 3 of my friends (who went on to have healthy babies) have told me to expect spotting around week 7-8. They all had it so hopefully you will be fine.
Nixxie - whilst I feel for you and hope your sickness settles down a part of me is a little jelous. I have no pregnancy symptoms at all and you seem to have them by the bucket load lol. I cant wait to start feeling pregnant feel like this first trimester is starting to drag - I cant wait to tell everyone my news and start buying baby things and get a big bump. oh well I am sure next week I will be on here moaning that I dont feel well lol.
Hope all the scans went well, speak soon xxx

Thanks for the messages starlightmum. I hope the spotting is nothing for you to worry about. Have you told your midwife? They could book you in for another scan?
My scan went well, the sac is the right shape (was the wrong shape last time), and she said that it all looks good for an early pregnancy. She couldn't see a foetal pole ( but she saw the yolk sac ), she thinks this is due to be being 5-6 weeks and not 6-7 weeks as I thought! I also had alot of bowel gas and my bladder was filling up rapidly So, I've got another scan next Thursday, so hopefully I'll see my little one. I'm still feeling positive, I'm getting up more in the night for the toilet, which is very unlike me, I could usually go 12 hours during the night without going for a wee And the sickness has gone up a level, and get a feeling that I'm actually going to be sick, and sometimes heave with no result! Anyway, the next stage is the midwife which I have on Tuesday, so I'm hoping she can give me abit more reassurance about the scan.
Hope all of you ladies are doing well. xxxx
