Well we went for our 20 week scan yesterday, Little Bean was such a fidget they couldn't do all the checks and measurements and no pictures. A very active LB no wonder I can feel movement already. Got to go back in three weeks to redo measurements and checks.
I've just come back from the doctors as my lower back/pelvic pain was so bad last night, I was scared to lie down, so spent most of the night up and moving. Also killed the hot water bottle. Been diagnosed with SPD and given some co-codomol and physio therapy to help ease it. I couldn't get in the car to get to work this morning, its a renault megane and never had problems before now. I bought some of the stick on heat pads until I can get out to buy a new hot bot. New doctors surgery and pharmacy at the end of our lane. Anyone else suffering with this?
My belly is starting to firm up now, but it's still a little wobbly.

Hi Martina and welcome to AB!
I wasn't really sure what to suggest to help you relax - this is something that is individual to each person, but equally I didn't want to read and run...
I've been worrying about money and all sorts of things too, but it's helped me to get things out in the open and talk to my OH and family about it all. Other people shouldn't stress you out - try not to let them - if they are interfering, listen politely, smile sweetly and do it your own way anyway!
I also wrote a list so that it was on paper and out of my brain so to speak and that seemed to work a bit as it's not as bad as I was imagining! (we are having to have the whole house re-wired and all I wanted to do was put another socket in the kitchen! - but will be safer for little wriggler when they arrive! Luckiily the electrician will let us pay in installments)
other ways that I have been trying to relax:
- reading a trashy romantic novel for a bit of escapism (but can set me off in floods of tears!)
- having a soak in the bath
- going for a long walk - fresh air always helps clear my head
- sitting in the sunshine in the garden with a big mug of tea and a pack of my fav biscuits
hope those ideas help, and if not make sure you keep popping back onto AB for some support and to get things off your chest - we're a friendly bunch really!
best wishes for a H&H pregnancy

Welcome to AB Martina.
I am 23 and expecting my first child, this is my 3rd pregnancy but the firt ended in m/c. When I told my mum the first time she judged me too but I think because I had the 2 m/c everyone is happy for me. Maybe people are just shocked and cant express there feeling well but at the end of the day its your life and your a grown woman you can make the decsions for your own life. Nix pretty much covered the relaxation tips but when I am having a stressful day a nice bubblebath with gentle music makes me feel so much better.

Hello December mummies,
How is everyone doing?
Has everyone had there scans? and found out the sex?
Im having a girl I think, the sonograper couldnt be sure but ive still gone mad with the pink shopping.
Had an appointment with the consultant too and I have decided to try for a normal birth instead of a c-section (i had an emergency c-sec last time) Just hope everything goes ok

Just need to get the garage conversion done so we can have a nursery upstairs...
in the meantime have all my family descending on us for the week next week... arghhH!
Hope all well
