Poor Felix, Jo - I hope he starts to feel better soon My friend has had a tough time with reflux with her little boy, it sounds like such a pain! I also have my fingers crossed that the implant will work well for you
CC, glad to hear you're doing well Not heard from Sooz in a while, but I did see her name pop up on a thread in the Second Trimester forum the other day, so I think she's around somewhere
I'm so sorry for my silence! I've had a mix of wee issues (pun!). After my UTI on New years day I was left with UTI symptoms which I have struggled to get rid of even though my urine cultures have been clear. My mood also took and dive and to top it all I ended up with a chest infection and collapsed on the bus on Thursday. All a bit chaotic. Betty-bump keeps squirming away happily despite it but my midwifery care in the community has been shocking and I've never been able to get hold of anyone to speak to for advice. I've got my 28week appt on Thurs but haven't seen anyone since Dec 21st! Anyways, I shall stop moaning.
Sounds like our wee fruit salad is doing well! From raspberry to aubergine (ew what a combination)! Congrats on your wee seed Jaynie! Close bump-buds with mini-egg!
CC it's so lovely to see you on the boards again. You're such a pillar of strength (although I know you don't feel it at times!) and you really do brighten the wonderful board you started. I really hope you're doing OK. If you want to share what's happening then go for it but we're just glad to have you here!
Kismet - I'm so sorry - you must be feeling so drained and pretty lost. If you want to share - what are the main reasons for you not wanting IVF etc? Are fertility drugs an option? We're always here for you to bounce ideas/rant/cry at. I'm sorry you're having a rough ride with it all.
Cake - how's your journey going? Hope you're well.
Jo - sorry about Felix and his reflux. When I worked in SCBU we gave neonates milk with gaviscon powder - it smelt boke but did the trick! Poor souls. It was so awful to see them enjoy their milk only for it all to come pouring back oot! I hope it settles down. We found that tummy-time after feeds also used to help for the pukey ones. When we tube fed babies we did it on their tummies to help with puking.
Luvbug, Annaki and 'nana - how's 3rd trimester treating you all? Is it going quickly for you? I think it's dragging and I still have the ultimate fear of prem labour (from my days working in SCBU I think sadly....). I've been lurking on 3rd trimester boards but they are pretty daunting.....
Sorry for my abscence ladies - I feel very bad but didn't want to be here every time just moaning! Hugs to all - weather is AWFUL here - torrential rain and wind. Keep cosy ladies!
Oh gosh sooz. Sounds like things are going rough right now! I hope you start feeling better soon!
Kismet, that's completely understandable.
AFM- I've been hurting the past couple days. Just achy. Not sure if it's the weather, or baby or what but it's draining me! I could not fall asleep last night. And DH was working ( lucky for me so I got to text him instead of having him laying next to me sleeping haha). But I'm paying for it now because I'm beat!
Kis' that's totally understandable. I think a lot of people assume folk will automatically want IVF. It is pretty daunting and you have your facts straight. In the uk you can have it in the NHS but the waiting list is long and the criteria is quite strict. As long as you go for the option you both want then that's the main thing. The worst thing would be if you wanted one thing and he wanted something else. It's a lot of strain I know. For some couples it's the immediate miracle but you can't tell who that'll be huh. Wish I could tell you the best thing. There is no harm in continuing the smep because there is always that chance.
I relate to the pains Luvbug. Sometimes I sit down feeling achey and I'm not actually sure what's aching - I just know I'm aching! I've been starting to get BH contractions which are dead weird. They don't hurt at all but my belly goes rigid for 10 seconds. Happens randomly! I do recommend heat and a really large sausage pillow to help with comfort issues! x
