Hey ladies, saw doctor today as not right. I have hyperemesis gravidarium. Been prescribed anti sickness meds, signed off for two weeks and told to rest, have to monitor myself if things get worse have to go straight back to doc.
I went to see the midwife for the first time today I took my mum as I am rediculously scared of needles. It all feels a bit more real now. Are you ladies going to have the screening for Downs Syndrome? I'm in two minds about it really. Hope you are all well. x
I wasn't sure what to do really so decided to go for the screening. Not sure if it's the right decision or not but thought we should take it if it was offered. My DH would definitely want to have it, he is so impatient and nosy and needs to know everything, he's not impressed I don't want to find out the gender!
Hi everyone! Hope you are all o.k. this thread has gone very quiet. All is well with me I managed to get my scan date in half term so Feb 20th. This is such a relief do not have to tell boss till I know all is good. Have any of you got your scan dates yet?
Still waiting on scan date and booking in appointment here- hopefully it'll come in the post today! I've been waiting to hear for a fortnight now! On the plus side my sickness seems to definitely be petering off! I'm still feeling sick but haven't actually been sick for several days now, which is brilliant! Dirty nappies are still a real stumbling block though, which isn't so good whilst my husband's at work! Unfortunately I'm constantly tired, which is a nightmare with a very active 1 year old, and never know what I'm going to be able to comfortably eat from one hour to the next, which throws meal planning completely out the window! On the whole though I'm coping much better now! Pregnancy is definitely harder when you have a toddler in tow than the first time around! There's so many more responsibilities and of course your LO has to have as much normality as physically possible!
