She plays sports basically year round and also does dance and plays the flute at school so she definitely has things to do but does bring it up once in a while. Or she will randomly bring me home pamphlets she got from a friend who rides My appointment is in 2 hours.
I do wish the appointment was later though. I'd give anything to go back to sleep right now because this sinus infection is kicking my ass!! I was up for hours again last night from it so I think I'll try napping after my appointment.
Saw my doctor.. I'm going to get more blood tests done tomorrow to make sure my levels are doubling and then I have another ultrasound booked for next Wednesday the 19th to hopefully see a heartbeat. Then if everything looks good we'll book an appointment for around 8-9 weeks for the first official check up. Otherwise she said to get lots of rest and no sex and hope for the best basically or to call if I start bleeding a lot.
Oh dear MoreBabies, trust me on this one and keep her AWAY from the horses! Sounds like she is multi-talented and busy enough as it is though, to keep her distracted
Have you got the results from your blood tests yet? Has the spotting/bleeding stopped? Really sending LOADS of good vibes your way hun!
How is everyone else doing? JustMe? Annio? Nimbec?
Well our scan yesterday was fabulous! Just a quick look at the little guy and everything looks great. He's measuring bang-on where he should be (was about 720grams) and the doc had a quick look at his brain and other bits and was very happy with everything.
The funniest thing came out of the appointment though! We are going on holiday to Namibia, Swakopmund, and our Gynaecologist asked us where we are going, and it turns out he is going to the same place at more-or-less the same time!! So weird. He even said that we have his cell number, and to call if we needed anything Lets hope it's just a coincidence and not a sign of something to come! :shocked:
What a great scan picture plastik!! And how funny about your doctor being the same place as you. Hopefully that just ends up being a coincidence and nothing more!! How far along will you be when you go?
AFM I didn't get the blood test done until later in the day yesterday so haven't heard anything about them yet. Spotting seems slightly less as of yesterday so we'll see how it goes today. Seems to be more tanish then dark dark brown lately. Don't know if that's a good thing or not but mostly just on the tp when wiping.
MoreBabies, I reckon the lighter in colour and flow the better!! Pretty sure all is going to be just fine with you and little bean, but still sending loads of good vibes your way!
Nimbec, you hit the nail on the head. Addictive!! I just can't survive without a horse!
I'll be 28/29 weeks while we are there, so pretty sure nothing scary will happen, but it is a comfort to know that my dude will be nearby I also went onto the hospital's website to get the 24hr helpline number, specific to pregnancy queries, and conveniently they also had a number for their 24hr helpline in Namibia!! I'm just going to take these things as lucky and not dwell on them
Glad things are going well for everyone! And Plastik, how funny your medical person will be where you are Got to be sort of reassuring too though?
Well for me the legal bit of our wedding is next Saturday! I am a world of excited! Although it's also a bit odd as we've had our wedding - this really is just the paperwork. But paperwork with lovely clothes and then yummy food so hurrah!
I had my glucose tolerance test this morning - I got sent for one as my mum has type 1 diabetes. I made it through despite hating blood tests; although she did the tests from my wrists! and one of them Really hurts now! I have my fingers crossed for passing...
It wasn't anywhere near as bad as people make out - although no food wasn't fun, drinking a giant bottle of lucozade (410ml) wasn't fun and getting really hungry before the second test was definitely not fun.
I've been off work all week now with a cold. None of the symptoms are ones that paracetamol would help with, and when I go and try and do something I just end up feeling so rubbish I know staying at home has been the right plan. I went in for the morning on Tuesday and will do so again tomorrow as some things I just can't do from home - but that's it!
All getting a bit 'omg I actually have to HAVE a baby' now I think, which is odd. We haven't remotely got all the stuff we need yet, although I thought we were doing ok...
And hb has been ill again so I'm getting quite worried again It's a mix between worried about our finances taking a battering every time (we have no savings or all the baby stuff yet so that's quite scary, especially with my income due to drop soon) and also it's always terrifying that one day his work will just stop employing him as he's been so ill I couldn't cope with how upset that would make him; I'd be so angry with them as none of it is his fault. And I can't really say that stuff to him as it will just be so much extra pressure on him which he doesn't need as he is so so worried about it already My poor hb
Justme great that all your wedding stuff will be finalized on Saturday.. so exciting!! Congrats!!! Sorry to hear about you and your OH aren't feeling well. Ive just been sick with this sinus infection and boy has it been beyond miserable. I've gotten next to nothing don't lately! I hope you both get better soon to take some of that stress off you both!
AFM My doctor just called and said my blood tests came back great and they doubled so that's a good sign so we will just wait and see how the ultrasound looks on Wednesday! Keeping my fingers crossed this all works out!!
MoreBabies, great news about your levels doubling!!!Congrats!! Excited to hear about you seeing a nice strong heartbeat next Wednesday!!
JustMe, so sorry your hubby is not feeling great Can the poor guy just catch a break already?! SUPER exciting about the wedding, congrats on getting it all finalised and I'm sure it's going to be loads of fun! And hope your cold gets better!
AFM, my mom has had a bit of a freak out that I'm not as organised as she would like me to be yet She can be a pain but she means well, and at the end of the day I guess it means I'll get everything done well before I would if left to my own devices. And that's a good thing right? Coz I keep hearing how tired I'm going to be and not wanting to do anything close to the end. ANYWAY, I found this list which I wanted to share with you girls, before I go shopping next week. I've done lots of looking and it's the best one I've found so far. Have a look and tell me what you think?
Bean's room is also being painted next week, the cot is being touched up (It's over 100 years old!! Was used for me and my siblings, AND my dad and HIS siblings, and my gran bought it second hand!!), I have the decals ready to put up when the painting is done, got the travel system and a second cot for our room (DH was raised in it) and have started our stash of Nappies (different sizes), nipple cream, gripe water, baby shampoo, baby powder and all of those little bits. So I'm feeling pretty good about everything. Doing a big shop for clothes and breast pumps and monitors next week (I got some Tax back, oh HAPPY DAY!)
