Lp, it hasn’t happened to me, but one of my friends had that happen a few times when she was pregnant and vomiting...like not a little leak, a full on pants wetting!

Loves_cookies you’ve still got me beat on fluid consumption! I’m lucky to make it to 1L, although I think I managed it today. I’ve been eating lots of fruit and veg to hydrate that way.

I’m 10 weeks today! I’m deliberating when to do my harmony test. They say it can be done from 10 weeks, but I’ve read it might be better to wait until 11 weeks when fetal DNA in my blood will be higher. My lower abdomen is feeling a little firmer, but any “bump” I have is more likely belly fat and bloat at this point! (She said as she ate ice cream from the carton...)

Lp, I second pelvic floor exercises. I didnít learn the importance until having diastasis recti after giving birth and needing physical therapy. I learned so much about my body and strengthening all those muscles that arenít seen.

Loves cookies, have you tried making a homemade electrolyte drink? It was the one thing I was able to drink when I was vomiting nonstop. Theyíre easy to make. The recipe I used called for a quart of water, some fresh squeezed orange juice, a dash of salt and I added some magnesium to mine.

Wishn, haha I made apple a la mode last night and the bloat over here is real. Despite my exercising and healthy eating (minus the ice cream) thereís no changing my body. I believe Iíll have to embrace it at this point. Itís not soft, itís quite firm so that makes me feel a tad better.

Iím going on 10 weeks and exhaustion has set in. Naps are a necessity these days. I wonít complain though. I will gladly take naps over a date with the toilet.

Curious. Whatís a harmony test?

Hi ladies! I haven't been on here recently so I look forward to getting caught up on everyone's past few days? Weeks? Yeesh it has been a while!

Sorry so many are feeling sick I'm right there with you! Yesterday and today have been my first "good" days in two weeks. Part of me is so relieved that I'm getting a bit of a break from the vomiting, but of course the other part of me is scared its because something is wrong. I did end up ordering a doppler online. I'm hoping I'll be able to catch the hb and ease my worries a bit!

Harmony test is a blood test taken from you from 10 weeks to check baby's DNA for chromosomal abnormalities and is meant to be 99% accurate as opposed to the usual 12 weeks check which is apparently 93% accurate. But, it isn't available on the NHS and is expensive, so if you would keep the baby regardless then you probably best going with the usual check ups

Jwilly, Iím happy youíre having better days. Second trimester is just around the corner!!!

Thanks for the explanation Happy. My husband and I deny all testing from the start so maybe thatís why Iíve never heard of it.

Hi ladies!

I found out at the beginning of last month that I was pregnant with baby #3. We already have an almost 3 yo dd and 13 month d's. We wanted a 3rd but we were planning on waiting a little longer.. surprise! Guess life had other plans. So we're looking at 3 under 5.

I took a break from the forum shortly after I joined the Oct group as I went in for my 7 week scan and was only measuring at around 4 weeks. but had my levels checked and they seemed to be rising and yesterday went in for another scan and baby looked great and measuring at 9w 4d. So my new due date is Nov 8th. Appears that I ovulated VERY late. My doctor even asked if I failed to note a period... I think inwoild have remembered bleeding for 7 days... But lost period or not, I'm still in the game and hoping for a full term pregnancy. Looks like I'm moving over to the November mommas-to-be. Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Jwilly, welcome back, glad youíre starting to feel better! I think I am too (I probably just jinxed it by saying that!)

Welcome pb! That must have been scary measuring behind, you must be so relieved that everything is looking good now!

Nogreater, happyís right on with the harmony. Itís non invasive prenatal blood test that can screen for 3 different chromosomal problems in fetal DNA found in maternal blood. Since Iíll be 40 when I give birth, Iím at higher risk, and also I donít have to pay for the test due to my age (would be $500!). I donít think I could ever terminate, but I think I would rather know and have time to prepare if something is wrong. For 2 of the things it tests for, babies usually donít live past 1 year.

When you say deny all testing, do you just mean genetic testing? Youíre still having ultrasounds and blood work done, right?

Pb, welcome! What an incredible and interesting story. Iím so glad all is well! We have the same ďdueĒ date!!

Wishn, I understand even more now. Thank you. I couldnít terminate either, but I certainly understand wanting to know so that you can plan accordingly. Yes, I opt out of all genetic testing and I usually only allow 1-2 ultrasounds. However, this pregnancy, as you know, has been different and Iíve allowed two thus far. Now we have to decide how many more weíll agree to. Blood work is non-invasive and can provide valuable information, like being certain my thyroid levels are stable, so I consent to that. Iím not against the extra tests, itís just our preference.

Nootles, haha...still pregnant. Happy 11 weeks! How are you feeling now that youíre so close to second trimester?
