Hey everyone sorry been MIA for a while! It's been so busy here with visitors and work etc but I'm more focused and have more time now haha!

How are you all!?

I've had our twenty week scan and all was perfect t it's such a relief!! I'm also having a few braxton hicks and yes it's totally normal so don't worry and the more babies we have the more obvious they are! I'm feeling baby proper kicking me now and can feel on the outside it's weird that it sort of just happened overnight! Hubby has felt little Joey too!! Sooooo cute I love it! I'm feeling sick again and have heartburn (which never had with other two really) and the dreaded spd is creeping in more and more yaaaaaaay....... ha! Anyway speak soon and hope you're all keeping well xx

Lilmiss i wouldn't worry, I'm sure you will be fine and chances are your baby IS a boy! It's just this place is awful that I went to. Actually it was a shock to find out girl but a few posts back I did actually say I was so so so shocked to find out boy at my 'gender scan' as I was so adamant to be having a girl! So I'm shocked but so happy. Except now I'm paranoid to believe the hospital but they obviously know what they're looking at over these idiots

I'm still in shock too over being told I'm having a boy and it was 2 weeks ago lol. Even now that I know it's a boy I still picture a baby girl in my arms. Probably just because that's what I had the first time and I can't see past that. We haven't discussed names or anything because I just still can't get the idea of a boy into my head. I have my 20 weeks scan 2 weeks tomorrow so I'm hoping after they confirm for me it's a boy and that everything's ok with it then I will be able to get a bit more perspective. I don't know why it's not registered properly with me yet because she showed us his boy bits on the scan and they were pretty unmistakable! Even when people ask me what I'm having and I say a boy I feel like I'm lying when I say it out loud lol :S I know that sounds strange x

With my last pregnancy, my placenta was low at my anatomy scan, and at the follow-up (or maybe the original scan, I don't remember) they decided my son's femur measurement was a little short and it led to all kinds of extra ultrasounds and NSTs and appointments. I'm glad my midwives took it seriously (it can be a soft marker for Down Syndrome or indicate growth issues that can lead to having to induce early), but it turned out to be a bunch of fuss over nothing. My son was perfectly healthy, just petite, which isn't surprising since his father and I are short. He was born at 41 weeks at 6 lbs 15 oz and at 2 he's still a little guy.

Yesterday was my anatomy scan for this one, and the tech doesn't share much (it has to go to their doctor to be analyzed, then results get sent to my midwives), but she was a little concerned about her size. She says it could be because she wouldn't stop moving, so measurements were hard to take (at this stage, "too small" is a matter of millimeters). So now we wait to hear back, and I'm​ bracing myself for all the extras again, which will be even more difficult with a toddler to manage. Hopefully my history of making small but perfect babies works in our favor. It's less scary than last time now that I've seen the outcome, but I still don't like hearing about any potential problems.

A cold won't hurt the baby as long as you're staying hydrated and checking the safety of meds. It just sucks for you. I swear illnesses feel ten times worse when you're pregnant. Hopefully it clears up soon.

Thanks and im trying to stay hydrated and eat enough but I haven't really had an appetite the last couple days. Its starting to come back a little bit now. I just feel like im giving the baby shaking baby syndrome cuz my belly shakes so hard when im coughing and sneezing cuz they're so heavy. I haven't taken anything yet just been eating soups and and warm water for the throat ache. I hope it goes away soon at least by the end of the weekend because going to work with it has been absolute hell.

I'm sure everything will be just fine mrsChicago! Don't panic, she's probably just another tiddler like your son let us know I'll be thinking of you!!

I'm sure a cold will not hurt the baby at all. A few weeks back I had a VILE chest infection where I was coughing so hard I was sick and sneezing all day every day for 2 weeks

Rockstar, I've had two colds already while pregnant, and they both were terrible and lasted two weeks each... baby will be fine, just take care of yourself! I found that a humidifier by my bedside was super helpful, as was sleeping in a recliner, and just sleeping lots. I ended up taking a few days off work to sleep. Hope you feel better soon!
