I'm tired too today, OH fidgets like anything and everytime he moved i then had to get up to go to the toilet...haha.
Feeling really faint, even in bed the room kept spinning and kept having mini blackout spells when i stand up, midwife did say i've got low blood pressure due to dehydration but no matter how much i drink i cant seem to get it back to normal
Cute bump Jess! You got a nice one going. Mine is not quite a bump yet, but it's definitely getting bigger. I tried to shop for a dress for my sisters shower this weekend. It was a total disaster. I tired myself out shopping for 3 hours and nothing fit right, so I came home with nothing . It's really tough for me to get used to this new body. I was already really large chested before and now I'm losing my best asset, my waist line. So I feel like I have nothing to accentuate. It's tough because I feel so fat and like I'm trying to not look pregnant because no one knows yet. But, it's all worth it, and in a few weeks they'll all know I'm not fat, I'm pregnant
I've been dealing with the sickness pretty bad this week. I phoned my Dr for some drugs because I am worried I will puke the whole flight to chicago on thursday!!! I hope it works!
Hope everyone's doing well with work and symptoms!
Thats a long work day Jess! Have you had a better sleep? My doctor suggested ice lollys to help with the dehydration, they work well with me, make me feel lots better.
1sttimemama - hope the medication helps you tomorrow on the plane. Are you going to try them before you fly to see if they work? Hopeforly soon you can start showing off your bump! I'm missing my waist line too, its just bloat now!
Feeling pretty rough today, how is everyone else doing?
Hey everyone! I am back from my weekend away. It started out with a bit of stress. I woke up at 3am before my flight and had some dark brown discharge. I was so worried it was a miscarriage. I called my Dr. and she said there's really nothing they can do but do a doppler or ultrasound when I came back. She said flying wouldn't change anything, if I was going to have a miscarriage I would either way. So, I reluctantly got on the plane and thankfully the spotting stopped after a couple of days. What a scare that was! My next ultrasound is schedule for next Tuesday but I might try to go in this week just to make sure everything is ok.
It was a good weekend. My sisters shower went well. I ended up telling a lot of my friends that I'm preggers on my trip, but in the back of my mind I was worried something is wrong and I'm not anymore . I know it's silly, but being surrounded by pregnant women (my sister and best friend) just made me worry a bit more that something might be wrong.
The good news is, I was able to keep my m/s at bay with some zofran the Dr. gave me. Not sure I could've survived the trip/flight without it. I got back late last night nd had to get up for a 12 hour work day at 6am today . I am so exhausted!
Is anyone else feeling like they have to pee a lot more these days. I have to go constantly! Way more than usual. Can't wait for 2nd tri! I'll find out at my next ultrasound if I am 11 weeks tomorrow or 12 weeks! Maybe I'll find out this week!
Hope everyone is doing well. We are almost to trimester 2!!!!! We did it!!!
Thats quiet late jess, thought they had to do it before 13+6 because of the tests they do?? I rung up and changed mine to anl earlier by a little white lie as mine was cutting it fine, and i just couldn't wait that long!
I'll get OH to do a pic of my bump later and i'll post for you ladies to see if you think it is a start of a bump. In my tight jumpers i just feel fat!! I'm currenlty living in joggers and leggings!!
mama2b sounds like you had a lovely weekend. Sorry for your scare, i'm sure everything is fine but maybe a ultrasound this week will put your mind at rest, and it's always nice to see them on screen! I'm peeing alot more, even when i haven't even drunk anything! 4am is my night wee time, without fail!!
I can't believe we are almost in 2nd Tri!! I thought i would never get there. Today means i have made it past the day i lost the 2nd twin, which is a milestone for me. Just want my scan to hurry up so know everything is ok!!
Me and OH have decided we don't want the downs screening tests as they are only 70% accurate and if they tell you that you're in the risk factor they mentioned an amniotic test, and that can cause m/c.
We decided not to have the tests as either way we'll be keeping bean, and we'd rather not lose bean through testing or even worry ourselves for the next 6 months over something we can't do anything about or may be wrong.
As even if baby was downs, the needs only start changing as they get a bit older and for first few months we wouldn't need a major amount of different things than what we have already.
So i'm guessing thats why i'm not being seen until 14 weeks, but i'll have a lovely clear pic of bean by that point! xxx
arr i see, did you tell hospital then that you didn't want the tests? It should be nice and clear then, and only 6 weeks until the 20 week one!!
I won't have any further tests either after the scan. I just couldn't wait until 13 plus weeks to see bean again, i would have gone mad as OH has said no to a doppler until midwife has tried and found, so think i would have driven myself mad.
So is yours two weeks away then? should fly by! xxx
