You look great DHBH

We got our mattress delivered today; it will be the first time we've slept on a mattress in TWO YEARS! Two years ago I was a couple of months away from having my second baby, and because we only had one bedroom, we moved ourselves out of the bedroom so that our eldest (and eventually the baby) could have their own room. So we have been sleeping on a sofa bed since. We moved house three weeks ago, and just scraped money together for a mattress. I am beyond excited to sleep on proper springs tonight, and not foam. My poor hubby has had two years of backache, and I'm going through my second pregnancy on a sofa bed, so were both glad to be free of it. We don't have a base yet, so it will be hard to get up from the floor, but hopefully in the next week or so we can get that sorted

Phantom smells


Ok so early in the pregnancy I had this weird symptom, and now it's back again.

I suddenly notice a strong awful smell. It comes in a wave, it gets stronger then fades, lasts only a few seconds. But it keeps happening every few minutes for a while. It's not a real smell, it follows me and happens even if I'm not inhaling through my nose, it's all in my head. The other weird thing is when it happens I have a very strong negative emotion to it (really hard to explain). Like the smell thing was happening during a bad dream and now my memory relates the two. It doesn't last long enough for me to figure out what it is about, I just know it makes me feel sad and scared and sick to my stomach since its a gross smell (indescribable, not like anything I've smelled for real, like a chemical smell I guess). This goes on for an hour or two then stops.

By far the weirdest symptom I've had! I guess the ton of hormones surging through my body are playing tricks on my mind (and nose)

Could it be a sinus infection? I get that when I have a sinus infection and you are more likely to get them in pregnancy. (I have one now... yay!) It's like a sweet rotting smell.

DHBH I've not had waves of bad smells but I have had cravings for smells over the past 2 weeks. I've never experienced anything like it before but it's smells like in a hardware store, tires, exhaust, pine sol cleaner, the smell of book pages, I thought I was going crazy so I'm glad someone else has a weird smell symptom too!

To all of the ladies who are sick I hope you get better very soon! It must be miserable coughing and sneezing all the time, I would be constantly peeing myself!

Hey everyone, sorry to offload but having a bit of a rough week. FIL diagnosed with prostrate cancer and it looks like I might GD, so doing the three hour test next week. Feeling a bit sad about things... Hope you guys are having better weeks than me!

Hoping Girl 2 I'm so sorry to hear that have they started treatment on your FIL? Don't worry about the GD until you know for sure; plenty of people fail the 1hr and pass the 3hr

Thank you!

FIL is currently undergoing tests to see if it's spread or not and then he'll start treatment. He's got to decide between surgery - which has got a very high chance of leaving him incontinent afterwards which he would hate - or radiation. Problem with radiation is he would need to check if he's allowed around pregnant ladies (me) and newborns (his other grandchild is being born as we speak). Been researching it and it all depends on the type of radiation treatment he'd get. Bit if a sucky situation

Sorry to hear this Hoping Girl 2. Hopefully the treatment options will work out for him to be there with your family and the new arrivals.

also to echo the girls re. the GD. You may still be fine and if not it's better for it to be diagnosed and managed, for you and baba but I totally understand that you're feeling blue. Hope things look up for you soon

HG2; it's better to be alive than to not be. Remind him, if you're in the position to, that it's only temporary that he might not be allowed near his grandchild and you. Such a hard reality to be faced with though. Can they offer another surgery for the incontinence? I know it's not the same, but after my first labour I started having stress incontinence (peeing when you cough or sneeze). I've spoken to the midwife about it this time around, and she said that there are surgeries I can have after the birth to fix that. Might be worth looking into, if that's the only thing stopping him going for surgery
