Thread: Pregnancy After Long Term TTC ~ January 2006

    Trish, bummer about your scanner. You've got to get those pics up somehow!

    Didge, if you've been surfing the net about what can go wrong in early pg, you'd be as nervous a wreck as I was! I found something at every stage of my pg that could be going wrong 8-[



    Yes, DH called the hosp while I was having a strop about the contractions slowing down. Apparently for a first birth it's textbook. I just have to wait for them to start up again. I suppose I should just count my blessings that something is happening, albeit not as quickly as I'd like it.

    YAAAAAAYYYYYYYY TRISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is the best news ever!! You must be so relieved.

    Didge - I was wondering how you were going. Don't worry ... I so understand the morning sickness and the ambivalence. Mine bordered on downright disinterest for a while actually to the point where I thought there must be something wrong with me because I just couldn't get into this pregnancy thing at all. I know it is not much help to you at this point, but these feelings do pass eventually. I hope your scan brings wonderful news and that you can relax a little afterwards.

    Sush - You poor thing with the pain. That must be terrible the way it is at the moment. It's good you're going to the physio though. I saw one this week and she was great. She's given me one of those elastic brace things and taped my back up (literally) and it has made all the difference. I hope it works for you too. I love your belly shot too and not a stretchie in sight.

    Sal - I would have offered you my mobile but I'm living in the dark ages and don't have one! Now that you are in touch with Sush, we know we will be kept up to date on all events. Events which sound rather ... imminent!

    Humphrey - I hear you on the egg and bacon sandwich. I used to crave one every morning when I got out at the train station. There is a cafe at the top of the escalators that did quite a lot of business with me in the first trimester, I can tell you.

    Leis - there is a seat here for you whenever you need it!

    Love to all ... hope you are all travelling well.

    Hi all,

    firstly, congratulations Trish on a great scan! I'm trying to think of a way to get your pics onto your puter without a scanner....

    Secondly, Sal this sort of pre-labour may be horrible, but every little bit helps and it means when you actually hit established labour, it's not likely to take hours! I am being vigilant with my phone, girls, and I promise I will post something as soon as I know myself.

    Mel, snap! I called the physio for an appt and the first thing they also suggested was a support belt. DH was sent out for one and I put it on as soon as I got it. Initially bub hated it, it seemed, kicking at the belt until I adjusted it that little bit looser (heehee!). Then, miracles of miracles, with it on, I actually managed to sleep without pain for 2 hours! Only on my right hand side though, still twinged on my left hand side, but omg I got some sleep!

    I don't know if this relief is temporary (please god no) but I'm accepting any rest I can get while I can. DH has ducked out to the gym but has promised to bring me home some lovely dinner and wants me to just rest. I could get used to this life.....

    didge, good luck for your scan, my sweet. I nearly cried from relief when the Dr reckoned he could see that little heartbeat on my first scan. Mind you, I couldn't see a thing! I'm sure everything will be just fine. Stop surfing the internet!

    love

    Hi all,

    I just read in "messages from BellyBelly" that this site is likely to go down sometime tonight for 12+ hours, so Sal, if you sms me I'll try to get on and let everyone know, but depending on the probs with the site, it may be much later than when I'm told the good news, everyone!

    love

    Scanner won't work on computer - tried downloading drivers and all.

    Will check out a new one - since most of my scans I will get same pics and not allowed to video them. It is our wedding anniversary in 3 weeks and I think it must be an electrical present this year.

    Glad you are getting some relief Sushee at last :sleeping:

    You too Mel relief from back pain

    Sal - bring on the Labour Vibes for you - due date tomorrow and all.

    Sal, can't wait to hear more news.

    Jo, hope ur doin ok.

    Sush, ouch on the pain, but good to hear bub is ok & the belly belt is giving some relief (preferably more). Yay on the preggy belly, like the others said, where r these stretch marks? :-)

    Trish, great news on ur scan, can't wait to c some pickies. For my first scan, I took digital photos of a photocopy, was a bit blurry, but did the trick.

    Didge, ur definitely not alone in worrying, actually if u weren't then u might be the only one, hope u get some fantastic news... :-)

    Amy, not long til Amy watch starts... :-)

    Hi girls, well a torrid and sleepless night for me. The contractions slowed down during the night and so did the bubs movement, so just got back from the hosp and having bub monitored. He is fine, they sent me home, they expect me back sometime in the nearish future (though they did say that this stage may take a couple of days for a first-timer, so I may have a wait yet). Sushee, I hope you're right about established labour coming on more quickly...I figure my body parts have warmed up now LOL. Not sure about this bub being punctual and arriving on due date...will keep you posted or will SMS Sush if I can't come to the computer. Two sleepless nights in a row...I know I should get used it now, as that's what's in store for me pretty soon in any case!

    Hey Sal - You must be a bit frustrated but I agree he's probably just slow and steady, you'll get to the business end no probs and he'll just slide out cause you've done all this work now! Positive vibes to you and waiting very patiently for your wonderful news!! Sounds like you're coping great.
    P.S. My hypbirth cd's arrived today so I'm going to start on them.

    Trish - Great to hear your wonderful news, hope you can relax and enjoy your precious bubs just a little bit now. Looking forward to seeing the piccies, sounds like you have some great shots of them.

    Sush - I need to update my belly shot, I am starting to feel pretty massive though. Maybe you've just done all your growing early and from now on you'll just stay the same size?? Either way I'm so glad to hear you're getting some relief from the belly belt, I'm finding it impossible to get comfortable most of the time but no pain. Yay that your DH is looking after you so well though, that helps ALOT!!

    Didge - I think I speak for everyone here when I say that we've all felt that fear before the first scan, it does get a little better though! Hope you join us in here permanently!

    Shell - Yes Amy watch is not far off!! We have to go off to Dunedin (3 hour drive) next week to have a scan with the specialist as apparently they still couldn't see part of the placenta so hopefully all will go well there.

    Love and hugs to everyone.

    Hi there!
    Well I had the u/s this morning, and it's !!!
    We saw their little heart beats, so tiny. Good news is that they're on track at 6wks 6days which is reassuring.
    Thank you to all you girls yesterday who made me feel more positive...I won't be surfing the net about any problems from this point on, too hairy

    Trish - That's excellent news about your scan results - glad you had a lovely sonographer as well.

    Sal - May I ask when you're due? Sounds like it's soon from what I've read - best of luck!

    Hi to everyone else, I'm sure I'll get to know you all soon enough!
    Cheers!

    Didge,

    congrats on the twinnies! How exciting!! OMG this place will be filled with them soon!

    Sal, I slept like a log again last night (Yay!), and woke up this morning with a start thinking I missed your sms! I've been told on many an occasion that the longer your pre-labour is, the shorter your established labour will be. My mob phone is near, as I expect that soon things are going to hot up for you, and how!

    Hello all you lovely ladies and hope you are all well. You guys are so nice to say you can't see the stretchies, but trust me, they are there. Just not dark coloured this time, so probably not as obvious on the photo. Amy, can't wait to see an updated belly shot! Also can't wait for Amy-watch to start!

    Jo, thinking of you and really hoping things are okay.

    Better get to work but will be lurking all day.

    love

    Didge - that's so wonderful!!!! Congratulations honey. Gosh, I feel a bit boring with my little lonesome bub.

    I do hope you're not suffering too much Sal. Lack of sleep is a killer when you need every ounce of energy you can get. Hopefully it's all (or nearly) over and you are holding your precious boy in your arms.

    Didge CONGRATS on twins!!! Awesome, and even better that you're going to stop surfing the net to find out what can go wrong, just try and relax and enjoy your pg as much as possible! Oh, I'm due today. Not going to happen.

    Well, I am still having contractions (quite ouchie ones), some lasting up to 90s, but there is no steady pattern of timing, so STILL have not gone to the hosp. Grrrrrr if I have another torrid night like last night then I will be one grumpy mum-to-be tomorrow. The midwives said this can last a couple of days...well, it'll be a couple of days come 2am...

    Amy, that's great that you're starting the hypbirth cds. I haven't put my training into active use yet, but I'm hoping that I will get good results. Anyhow will let you know soon enough (if the bub decides to fully dislodge himself).

    Wow Sal, the time has come! Doesn't seem long ago since I ws sharing your excitement of the two lines on a stick.
    I stayed at home for about 36 hours having irregular contractions and went in when they got too much and to my surprise I was 4cm dilated! They said I had done all the hard work already! Not quite true, but they say those first 4 cm take the longest. I agree with what Kelly said in the other thread - stay home as long as you can, as the whole hospital thing is much less more stressful.
    I will be thinking of you and sending strong labour vibes to make it all happen soon.

    Didge, congratulations! What excitement! This place is right little twin factory at the moment! Glad you feel a bit more reassured.

    Speaking of twins, I wonder how Jo is going? Hope everything is okay.

    Sal - I hope that Anney is right and that you will get a pleasant surprise when you do get to hospital eventually! I've been thinking about you all day. Hope you are bearing up well.

    Anney - how are you pet? Hope things are well with you.

    Sushee - yay on the full night's sleep!

    Amy - good luck with the hypnobirth CDs and I hope your scan next week is all good re the placenta.

    Babydreams - will check out your photos. Those 3D ones are amazing ... what a bonus!

    Would you believe I'm having a Suimin for dinner because I was just too knackered to cook? It must be nearly Friday ...

    Love to all,

    Mel

    Hi Everyone,

    I have an update on Jo.

    She is still in hospital being monitored as her bp is up and down at the moment and I think they are still finding that pesky protein too! She is a bit restless I think but all in all, they are keeping a very good eye on her and the twins.

    The twins are doing well, still safely tucked up inside mum and the smaller twin has put on about 1lb this week so that is really good news. They are hoping they can stay put for a while longer but it sounds like they are all doing as well as they can be.

    Thought you would like to know! Will keep you informed of any further updates.
