    Less than 12 weeks pregnant club! Part 3 27th Feb 13 at 9:36 AM
    This is a continuation of This thread which will be closed due to it's length.

    It's a thread that came from the very different needs of early pregnancy and is the springboard for the main MSE pregnancy thread here...

    I've taken some of the thread 'starters' from the main thread including the be careful notice below... Please let me know if there's more that should be on this opening post. ps thanks to Courgette for starting the original thread.

    Ladies also please remember the following rules

While discussing medical insurance policies, cheaper ways to see consultants, cashback for alternative health treatments and how to get specific medication cheaper (legally) are all perfectly acceptable we ask you specifically not to discuss what to do in the event of certain medical problems (please see this rule on the Health Board).

    I'm due October 10th and I'm 7 weeks 6 days - gosh this could be a very hard list for someone to keep!

    I'm feeling waves of nauseau today but it's still hard to tell whether it's IBS or pregnancy. Feeling sicky when I wake up is new tho.

    It's probably best doing it like in the Pregnancy thread as when people repost they don't really want to be working out weeks

    Yippee a new thread !!! and my last post on here !!!

    I am now 12 +2, so need to move over.... scary, starting to feel very real now!!!! All the family told over the weekend and all very excited as it is my first!!!! OH's Mum was not too impressed, as it is his fourth, and said 'I thought my grand children were over and your too old to be starting over at your age', knew she would react like that, but did manage to get a kiss on the cheek from her!!! Also we had an offer accepted on a house, so a very exciting and magical weekend!!!!

    Congrats to everyone who has made it over from the TTC thread and to everyone else with scans and see you all over on the next thread!!!!

    PS. Pigpen tell your OH!!!!

    Just back from my booking in appointment....it's been the longest 5 weeks ever to get to this. Should finally get a scan in 2 weeks as she dated me at 10 weeks (thought I was 9 weeks) ...

    My midwife was lovely. On 16th March she comes to my house for more form filling .. I'm not fussed but I did wonder why? Actually hardly anything happened at my booking in appointment..weighed, measured and asked to confirm if I wanted a down syndrome test. I just want a scan and some reassurance!

    Hi Guys

    Good to start a nice clean thread!

    I think I'm due October 14th. Still haven't heard anything from midwife/hospital despite self-referring 3 weeks ago. Any advice? Was thinking of calling into my GP's surgery tonight to see if they'll chase. It might just be because I'm London based and the hospitals are inundated. Maybe I'm just being too nice?! I'm 8 weeks on Monday so would really like to have a confirmed date soon as I want to take it out of my annual leave before the end of March (don't want my work to know until I've had a scan).

    Hope everyone isn't feeling too rough with morning sickness, mine hit hard on Sunday and hasn't disappeared since

    Hi! I'm due around 20.10.13

    Had an antenatal appt at diabetes clinic today but was really more diabetes related than baby related. Shame as I was hoping for some reassurance as I've previously had 2 mcs.

I can't stay in bed if I wake up I feel really sicky and don't feel better till I've stood up and had a glass of water.
    I've been taking pregnacare plus before bed, maybe it's that. Do you take supplements in the evening too?

    I personally take supplements in the morning as I think they're best taken with food so some of the nutrients are taken in with the right foods.

    I take mine at night as they make me feel really ill if I take them during the day. This way I can mostly sleep through the nausea. Its what the mw recommend to me last time as I was really sick all the time and worried o wasn't keeping enough folic acid down!

    Pigpen did he cotton on? Hope you're feeling loads better for having it out in the open now :-)

    Eta - thanks for the new thread neneromanova :-)

    Hello ladies. I'm now 5+2. Every second I am awake I am panicking! Almost waiting for it all to go horribly wrong again. Was brave and called midwife yesterday - booking appt 15 march. Midwife was lovely - I blame 3 horribly negative midwives for causing me stress and then the mc. Anyone else had a similar experience? Also, can I be added to the list? Due 28.10.13 xx
  • bride2be2012
    Ooh, I do like a nice new shiney thread! Can I be added to list please, due 19/09/13...scan on 8th March.

    Having a really rubbish day, nothing is shifting the nausea and I am so tired. And if one more person tells me this stage will pass soon, and it'll all be worth it in the end, I may hit them! I know they mean well, but when I'm so exhausted I'm in tears, they really aren't helping!

    Eta-neneromanova, your signature made me giggle, you have squirt due in 3013, that's a very very long pregnancy lol!

    Do Pregnacare contain iron? My midwife said that sometimes iron supplements can actually cause nausea and told me to get ones minus iron until the nausea passed?

    Had a little nap but I still feel so tired
