All well here... 12 week scan on Thursday, at nearer 13 weeks. Symptoms subsided, but were very mild - just like with Archie. Am showing already (a lot) and have been listening in on the Doppler, so I know all is going okay in there!
My miscarried baby was due just now. So we lit a wee candle for him/her to make sure they know they're not forgotten. It's easier to deal with when we have another on the way... But still hard to get my head around.
Not quite as excited about telling everyone this time around, but it's still exciting! I think the knowledge of how wrong it can go (congenital defects) and how easily it can disappear from view (miscarriage) kinda tames the excitement!
Still, we are full on nest building at home and will be swapping rooms around so that the babies will share (eventually) and have a lovely big play room... Not even considering names given our change of plan with Archie's! We'll wait and see.
My bridesmaid is due 3 weeks before me, and another good friend is due 4 weeks before (her wee boy is one month older than Archie, so we are following a pattern). Lots of others just now too. Baby boom... Hope it strikes you guys, DG, Mama and Ink.
Well I'm bit nervous about scan tomorrow now as have just had some brown spotting . Typical this happens day before scan! So preparing for the worst now - memories of first pregnancy coming back strong x
Oh, Nat, I totally understand how you feel... I have a horrible feeling something is wrong too. I just haven't felt pregnant, and only heartbeat I've found on Doppler for past ten days or so has been around 90 bpm, which is too slow. So I'm worried I'm either hearing myself or the baby has a poorly heart.
I am really nervous and Thursday can't come round quick enough. I'm not thinking positive thoughts at all, I know it's a different story from my post the other day...
I hope we are both wrong. Lots of women have spotting and go on to have healthy pregnancies... I sincerely hope that is the case for you.
Best of luck Nat. Let us know as soon as you can! Try not to worry... Says she who's all worked up! Cx
Sorry I haven't been in for ages, but I am still keeping tabs on you all, and how you're all getting on
Nat and Stina- I truly hope that you are both worrying for nothing. After what you've both been through, it's completely understandable why you're both so nervous. Nat, I hope that everything goes well for you today, and that I'll pop on here and see a beautiful scan pic Stina, I hope the next couple of days don't drag too much for you, so you can hurry up & see a healthy bubba on screen. Thinking of you both.
Ink, sorry that you've been going through a tough time I'm glad that you're still popping on here from time to time.
Mamadonna, it's normal to look back when you've lost an angel, and wonder what could have been. I don't think that means you're living in the past. Hugs.
Deafgal, I hope that things start progressing with your tests etc soon.
All is good here Alex is 17 months old now- time is just flying! Christmas was great, now that he understands more of what it's all about. He soon got the hang of opening presents, that's for sure! He actually understands a lot now- toddlers are more clever than we give them credit for I can almost have a conversation with him now, and he understands completely what I mean. It's so funny. We've booked a holiday to Orlando at the end of the year, so I can't wait to see his reaction when he sees Mickey Mouse!
He had a great time playing in the snow last week, although he wasn't too sure about it going on his wellies to start with! He face planted a couple of times in it, but he didn't seem to mind lol. I'll try and post some pics on here if I can.
As for me personally, everything is going well. It's amazing that having Alex has given me a circle of lovely friends here, which is a good thing for me to create roots here, with all of my family and old friends living 200-odd miles away. I've almost finished my weight loss journey now too. I'd put on a lot when I was pregnant and even more when I was breastfeeding, because it made me hungry all the time! I'm now 71lb lighter (5 stone 1lb) than I was last February, and I feel so much better in myself Just 9lb left to go, and I'll be the lightest I'll have been since I was in school!!
I really must try and post in here more often, but I do keep popping in and checking up on your all still though xxx
