View Full Version : First Trimester Mummies?
How are we all doing?
I'm now just over 10 weeks and have my scan 2 weeks today. It really can't come soon enough for me. By this stage with P I had already seen her (but I had had a scare and we thought I was losing her so it was a bad way to get an early scan!)
I'm generally feeling wretched - all day nausea/dry retching etc but oddly I feel better this time around. I don't know if I have a more positive approach this time or not.
I'm growing at an alarming rate! I don't appear to be putting on weight but I am quite obviously pregnant! Those who aren't 'in the know' at work are certainly being diplomatic and not mentioning my size!
I have my scan booked for 14 June and my booking in appt on 26 June. Work are being a total pain about my appointments (not my bosses but my co-workers) and I'm trying to stand my ground. I deliberately make sure they are arranged in the morning as I'm the one here latest to cover the phones when the others have gone home but apparently it's still inconvenient!
No idea on names etc yet but we will be finding out the sex so we can make a decision nearer the time. Just having a major panic at the amount of work needed on our house before number 2 arrives!
How is everyone else doing??
I'm very much at the beginning of the first trimester rather than the end so a long way behind you!
My boobies are coming along nicely, as is the indigestion and heartburn.
I feel sicker and more tired this time round so may develop proper MS is a couple of weeks but I really hope not to. However, not headachey yet and was plagued by this last time round so who knows what is going on:huh:
I am seriously worried about becoming the size of a house this time:shock: I am not exactly thin anyway and do find that I am hungry in that weird pregnant way of needing food but not actually fancying anything apart from crisps:oops: And then of course eating dinner on top of it all. You'll be able to roll me around sideways soon. I hear you do show more quickly second time round but I don't think I can entirely blame my crisp baby on being pregnant.
I do feel very relaxed about the whole thing. Unlike last time I don't feel I need lots of time to get used to the idea of having a baby and so don't really mind if the news leaks before 12 weeks. We've already told my mum and my best friend so it won't be long before tongues start wagging anyway.
We also have loads to do on the house before the baby arrives and no money to do it so not sure how we'll resolve this one just yet.
No names even being thought about yet but we won't find out the sex so we'll have to come up with names for either option.
My DH maintains that this baby is part baby, part Cadburys Creme egg! Before I found out I was pg I would eat up to SIX a day!! No idea how I managed it at all but I just kept eating them!
I think at this stage your body will tell you what it wants and if that's crisps then go with it! Mine is telling me it wants Chinese and fat coke atm! Oh and strawberries, icecream and maple syrup - who am I to argue!!!
We were more paranoid last time about the news leaking out and tbh because MIL told EVERYONE before I was 6 weeks this time we've been telling people too. One of our friends gets married in just over a week and I didn't want to spring our news on them on their special day so we've already told them.
All the best Spritzer - be warned it seems to be going SOOO much quicker this time around!!!
God yes, I think it'll go in a blink:shock: I remember last time the first trimester dragged and dragged, the second whizzed by up to about 34 weeks and then it slowed right down again.
6 Creme eggs is impressive:clap:
It's one of my best friend's hen weekend next weekend and her wedding is late June and I think I won't tell her unless the MS is obvious by then (I am staying with her for the hen weekend). then we have another wedding in July but I will say I am driving for this one as Mr S is the DJ and so we can't stay over and it would have been mean not to let him drink as he is DJing anyway so this solves that little problem. I might go and have a snooze in the car in the evening before driving home at 2am:zombie:
Next wedding after that is in August and the whole world will know by then. Mr S is DJing again so same deal will apply.
Well I'm 12 weeks tomorrow and so far baby seems to be doing really well. I had a nuchal scan this week and have to go back next week because baby wouldn't get in the right position but the consultant reassured me that the fold is very thin and there's nothing to worry about and baby looks great :smile:
Me however, I'm doing less well. I feel pretty crap most of the time. I have been sick several times, had spotting, cramps, thrush, I can almost feel the beginnings of the SPD again and I think I'm right on the verge of getting cystitis so am drinking water and cranberry juice like a loon! I'm beginning to feel a bit stupid and like a right moaning minnie!
I'm also having the strange food things going on. I don't know what I fancy most of the time apart from prawns. :rolleyes: It had to be what I can't have. I also really want peanut butter and have some almond butter but it's just not the same.
I've told a few people, just close friends mainly who have asked me outright if I'm pregnant and I'm a really bad liar so just admitted it! I'm planning on telling my family at the weekend.
It doesn't seem to be going quickly or in a relaxed manner for me this time unfortunately but then I absolutely hate being pregnant. I don't want to sound ungrateful, I love having babies, just without the pregnancy bit. It doesn't agree with me at all! I find it worrying, painful and feel like I have lost all control over myself. I'm taking consolation in the fact that I never have to do it again after this, DH is for the chop!
Oooh, can I join this thread?
I'm 6+4 with baby due on 22 January, after 15 months TTC. I still can't quite believe I've finally graduated!
Glad to hear everybody is doing OK, other than the dreaded nausea/ms and exhaustion. My m/s hasn't really kicked in yet (and I'm hoping it won't) but I am knackered beyond belief. Our social life has taken a severe turn for the worse already as I'm tucked up in bed by 8.30 most nights!
The weeks seem to be dragging atm. Am waiting for a letter from the NHS with my first MW and scan appointment. By my calculations I should get my first scan in the middle of July when I'll be between 12-14 weeks. My GP knows I'm pg so it's just a matter of being patient really. Something I'm not much good at doing if I'm honest!
I haven't be on the boards for a day or so I have been feeling so bl**dy wretched with sickness and dry heaving. I have also had a reaction to some face cream and have got a lovely red, puffy face. Looking a bit :zombie: :zombie: at the mo. Anyone got any recommendations on what to out on it? Tried calamine and witch hazel.
Got my 12 week scan date through though :grin: 14th June at 3pm. Depending on what dates I go from (GP or private scan) I will be almost 12 weeks.
I have been having a cup of Twinnings Lemon & Ginger every day. It has been helping with the nausea but my friend has said that she is sure pregnant woman aren't supposed to drink herbal tea. Does anyone know?
Oh and sick to death of having toast for my tea!
YAY PL we are scan buddies!! Mine is at 10.50am on the 14th!
Herbal tea is ok but you need to avoid raspberry leaf tea until you are 34/35 weeks. Not sure about other teas - should say on the box. Ginger and lemon should be harmless though.
YAY PL we are scan buddies!! Mine is at 10.50am on the 14th!
I thought that your scan was on the same day Lois - hurrah!
I am sure that Ginger & Lemon tea is fine too. Both are well-known remedies for nausea and morning sickness.
Have managed a different tea tonight - ice-cream in a cornet, pickled onion Monster Munch and fruit salad :ellie: :lol:
Great supper PL:ellie:
Ginger and lemon tea is fine, as are most herbal ones. I have peppermint tea every night at bedtime (supposedly helps digestion).
Sorry you are feeling so rank but hopefully the light is at the end of the tunnel and you'll start feeling a lot better soon and can enjoy the summer.
Welcome Chickster and congratulations:flowers:
