  1. Hi all pregnant people!

    I thought that seeing as there are so many of us going through a baby thing at the moment that we could congregate on here and chat share advice, feel yucky or even cry!

    Well I only have 3 weeks to go unitl I drop my third! Hope this finds you all well and not overdoing it! Love and non-alcoholic drinks!

  4. Yep - Its boy number three for me- that is my destiny! I know for sure now too - had a late scan yesterday and there he was legs akimbo showing me his manhood!

     
  5. Hi all!
    What an excellent idea - a maternity thread. Everywhere I look there are pregnant people (or maybe I just notice it now). Now in my third trimester, awaiting the huge bump...
    Love to all

  6. Here I am! *clocks in* Great idea Kirkie m'dear! Will add it to my Hotlist.

    Am so jealous of you folk in trimester 3...I'm not even out of trimester 1 yet. Seriously wish I could have the gestation period of a gerbil or something!

    Well. Still feeling a bit pathetic and soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo fed up with everything stinking. O/h opened the fridge door earlier and I could smell it across the hall in the bedroom. Ugh!

    Also, why is it I can only pass poos the size of small pebble these days? Hehehe! I'm not being sick that much so where is all the food going?! Sorry to be so graphic!

    On the plus side, my boobs have probably gone from their usual AA status to an A by week 10. By the time next April comes around, I'll be an F!! Yeah right! I keep having little poses in the mirror (between nausea waves) to look at me boobs!! :) Is it just me? Or do other people do this?!

    We went to look at a house this morning (flat too small for us and a baby). One of the bedrooms in the house was a nursery already! Had a little pang! O/h rolled his eyes when I went "awww, a cot." We both liked the house, but it's at the top end of our budget and does need some work doing, so we'll probably have to give that one a miss. We looked at another property this afternoon for the same price, not a bad house but is slap bang in the middle of a rough estate. There were young kids hanging around outside all ****** and jeffing, I'm no prude but I dont' want our child to be 'socialising' with that ilk. Hmm, maybe I'm just a snob...?

    Ohh, get me running on! Like you all want to know the minutiae of my life... !
     
  7. Noone pregnant today?
     
  8. I am not pregnant just bit broody at the mo, not the right time for it to happen to me just yet though!

  9. Poor wee lad, hope he's better soon.

    Hello, clocking in. Feeling quite sick today - yuk!
     
  15. am pregnant too due in 4 weeks but my baby is breech at the moment have to go for a scan 2mrw and if its still breech will be booked in for a section got to say am quite terrified, this is my 1st baby so v v v worried about labour anyway but also never had any sort of surgery so the prospect of a section worries me greatly!!! have to keep reminding myself that it'll all be worth it in the end...

    my first baby was delivered by (emergency) section almost 21 years ago and I then went on to have 4 normal deliveries. What aspects of the possible section are you anxious about?
     
  17. the whole thing to be honest have absolutely no idea what to expect cant imagine being in an operating theatre and then being given my baby afterwards have to say have tried to talk to my midwife about all of this but have been brushed off and told everything would be fine...
     
  18. midwife is a plonker!

    you need proper information to allay your fears. you still have choices to make (general anaesthetic, epidural, what music to play etc)and you need to info to make the choices. can you write down a list of questions and ask your O/H to act as your advocate at your next appt?
     
  19. we did have tour of hospital recently which was supposed to reassure us and stop these worries but absolutle nothing was said about anything you have mentioned in fact left the hospital and sat and cried on my o/h's shoulder!! felt so scared i will do as you've suggested and make list of questions with my o/h he can be v vocal when necessary so hopefully will get some answers!! thank you for listening xx

    take care
