I think the glasgow maternity hospitals are under a lot more pressure with closure of the Queen Mother's. I had Lewis shortly after it closed and heard all sorts about how busy the Royal was as a result. This is part of the reason I'm returning to the Southern. The day I gave birth I was the only person on the labour ward for the majority of the day and I heard of people in the Royal that same day were bot even getting into the labour ward to give birth they were so busy.
Hi ladies mind if I join you? I'm not due till October but likely have baby early by section.
Hey il also be having baby early by section! Can I ask why u are?
I had a bad tear after my son 3 years ago and after suffering for 2 years I had to get plastic surgery to fix things!! So consultant says I've to think about planned section. Wasn't sure at first but now I'm thinking it's probably the best idea! Xx
It's not that I want a section but I had to have an emergency srction with my son due to severe pre-eclampsia after being told I didn't have it for weeks. My blood pressure would go sky high then come back down so they originally said that despite me having every other symptom as it was coming back down I was fine. Turns out they were wrong. I had a scan the day before showing everything was fine and placenta was working fine. But when they sectioned me they.checked the placenta afterwards and said it showed signs that he really had to be born.
So for fear if the placenta doing the same again I would rather have a section than have the placenta stop working.
came across this forum today and decided to join, Im expecting my 3rd baby september from my own dates around the 6th, I am still waiting for my booking in appointment and 12 week scan, The princess royal seem to have a back log of people and was told id have to wait another 2 to 3 weeks, anyone else waited this long for the booking in app and scan??
Hey Glasgow mummies to be! Just thought I'd check in with you all to see how you're all doing!
I'm 11 weeks now.. I'm very tired still and my skin has become very spotty... Aside from that I'm feeling pretty good. Got a private NT scan on Thursday - has anyone else had their scan yet? Quite excited, quite nervous! Trying not to obsess! Really looking forward to telling people as I'm bored of it being a secret!!
I'm 10 weeks today by LMP, and my first official scan is in 2 weeks today!
I've been feeling really really sick and have hardly been eating. I think I've lost 6-7 pounds in the last 3-4 weeks, but I'm not really bothered, as I'm a bit overweight anyway, so my GP said not to worry too much as long as I get enough liquids and at least some food every day. It sure doesn't feel nice though.
I love good food, so not being able to eat is really getting me down quite a bit
At least our close family knows, so I have people to complain to if I want can't wait for the 2nd tri, hoping the sickness will go away!!
Hi Mrs Brady - I'm due around the same time as you, and yes, I'm still waiting for an appointment date. I'm supposed to be at the Princess Royal but my notes are apparently at the Southern! It is quite hectic by all accounts.
I'm sure last time round I didn't get my appoinemnet date through for the southern till 9/10 weeks and the booking appointenet and scan were done at the same time at 12 weeks these were with the community midwifes at the new victoria.
hey all, i'm in my 20's and 9weeks 1day pregnant today, i am due 22nd september from my scan. i have had 4 scans soo far, as i am soo high risk, we have heartbeat on the two last scans,
me and OH had been TTC almost 5 years and went through fertility treatment. which ended in hell as the iui went wrong and i ended up in hospital with sever OHSS which ended in liver and kidney damage and were were told to stop trying that it was over and then i got pregnant lol here we are... still very high risk and on friday i had a CT scan because was rushed to hospital with suspected minigitis.
my booking in appointment/12week scan is on 8th march.
I live in Milngavie but used to be from cumbernauld.
I am booking in at the southern and already had two out of my 4 scans there.
I also have a son who is almost 5years old with some extra needs.
i am glad i am going to the southern this time because royal has been nothing but hell to my family. with my DS they tried to put him in a grave before he was born and they killed my daughter by medical misdignosis so wont touch them with a barge poll again i am just glad my son was born in cambridge while we were on holiday or else they might have had him dead too
