It's a pity you find yourself at risk but probably good your midwife is trying to prevent any issues now and will be monitoring you carefully. A friend of mine who is young, tiny, built like a little elf and probably only about 7st, got preeclampsia, the first sign was when she collapsed and was rushed into hospital by ambulance. She was induced early and has two gorgeous children now.
Not this time after being so totally devastated last time. I didn't even mind which I had but 20 weeks of telling myself it was a boy did a lot of damage and I think my mind is protecting me this time.
I have had a dream this is a girl but I'm still not leaning either way, I also had a dream I had 2 boys as well as DD and the bean!
Emma I'm like you, I crave zero junk food. All I want is fruit and whole grains.
On another note! Someone touched my belly today I'm only 11 weeks and I'm all bloated and when I cross my arms over my shirt you can see a little bump. She touched it and was like aww look you've got a little bump...oh its so firm! I wanted to be like, yeah lady its gas so push a little harder and I'll leave you a gift after I walk out the door!
So I was out walking yesterday and fell on the pavement.. I managed to think quick and fall on my hand and shoulder so my tummy didn't take the hit.. I am pretty worried. And also really annoyed at myself.. I have NEVER fallen over before- I am the most non-clumsy and coordinated person and I'm so angry that I fell.. Grrrr as soon as I start to relax a little about my baby...
If you're worried ask your OB to check everything is okay and put your mind at rest. I'm sure everything is fine and I hope you didn't hurt yourself!
I'm realising this time how resilient to knocks and bumps we are as it's a bit different being pregnant with an active toddler! My mum told me off last night as I was running around with DD in my arms to make her laugh!
Location: I live in Southern California. Its no Rocky Mountains but hey.
First off.... yay everyone is over 1/4 of the way there.. I knew this was a great, upbeat and strong group
Bam I think I stole your coordination. I am normally so clumsy and get hurt all the time... Sorry about that. I do agree with Emma though, I think that if your worried you should talk to someone. If you tell them you fell they will see you I'm sure. Luckily though it sounds l like your motherly instinct has taken over
Emma... fruit and salad and soup is my life now.... can't even stomach smelling fries!!
JBell I know the feeling. A managet at my work touches my belly all the time. I told her its too early to feel anything. She still insists... people can be irritating.
One of my other managers was talking to me about our stores order and noticed that I put my hand on my stomach a lot, then she told me about how she was when she was pregnant, its nice to have someone so willing to talk and share. In other news I get another scan on Wednesday at 10+5 to check on my jellybean and the cyst... I am really hopeing that we can figure something out if its not getting smaller. Also... my friend at 13 weeks found out she was having a boy!?!?!? I thought we had to wait between 16 and 20!!!!
I didn't think that you could see external genitalia until about 16 weeks. But at DD's Dr I saw an ad for sex testing before 8 weeks by a maternal blood test. I decided to wait as I've never heard of that before and wouldn't want a mistake made!
Hi everyone! Firstly - Yay for us all making it a quarter of the way through!!
So my long weekend away turned into a long week away (I love teacher holidays!) DH and I had such a lovely, relaxed time and I was feeling so much better that we just couldn't tear ourselves away. I haven't been sick in over a week and I'm starting to feel human again which is so nice!
I got a Doppler and thought that I had found the heartbeat off to the left a bit but when I checked it with my pulse it was mine on the box for mine it says it doesn't work until 14-16 weeks! I'm really feeling the time dragging now until my scan (haven't had one since 6 weeks and not getting one until 13 weeks!) the problem with getting rid of the nausea is that your mind then starts to make you worry that something is wrong! plus I am going home next week and would love to tell my family seen as I'll be 12 weeks on the Sunday but don't want to before scan.
Good on all you ladies craving healthy foods! I'm afraid all I want is junk, junk and more junk!
Sasha, hope the sickness is going now! Missus, did you find out what midwife wanted? Bam, your little 'guy' looks gorgeous! I'm convinced I'm having a girl.
So the first episode of my programme went well, found it quite funny that I said how our puppy was our 'trial run baby' and we would see how we got on with her first! the cheeky presenter (who I know well) had dubbed over it saying 'I hope your husband's not listening to this!' haha! Xx
