I just had my 16w consultant appt this morning (if you have previous molar pg you have to see consultant)...and they had me reported as having had a miscarriage so had all my appointments cancelled and had archived my notes!! So had to get that sorted out, obviously because I conceived so soon after last mc some wires got crossed. But all seems fine with the baby, got to listen to heartbeat which was nice. Also feel like i will only really relax about the pg after 20wk scan...we haven't even told our families yet!!

Hi there nerual I was exactly the same as you! DH got cross when I still didn't want to tell people post 16 weeks but we came clean even though I didn't relax at all til after 20 weeks. I'm 24+4 now and only have a panic when I haven't felt any movement for a couple of hours. I am consultant led post molar and post c section with DS and growth scans begin in a fortnight. It's going really fast now! Eek!

nerual Mon 15-Apr-13 18:20:16

Can't wait to feel some movement...haven't felt anything at all yet. Am sure I was feeling things by now with DS, but I think my tummy muscles were a lot tighter then, now I'm much more flabby!
How many growth scans do you get MrsD?

Mrsd77 Mon 15-Apr-13 22:02:29

I'm told I get one at 28 and another at 34 with a "decision"appointment at 36. I think I'm growing a bigun! My bump seems massive this time!

PurplePoppySeed Mon 15-Apr-13 22:42:01

Nerual I haven't had any movement yet either, in fact I just look a little podgy! It's so weird at this stage as I barely feel preggers at the moment!

Elsabel we still can't decide whether to find out the sex, hopefully we agree soon wink

Hello

Can I play? I had a mc in 2004, dd born in 2006, ectopic 2007, got divorced, new partner, tried for 2 years and just now preg 10 wks.

I am freaking out a bit, even though I have seen a heartbeat in the right place at 7 weeks I am preparing myself for the worst all the time and on symptom watch.

Thing is, I know it won't stop, still worry about dd even though she's enormous now (and I am fairly sure my mum worries about me too).

So I am trying to do all the right things, hope for the best and stop googling!

PurplePoppySeed Tue 16-Apr-13 21:29:44

Hi Cuckoo, welcome, lots of lovely ladies & success stories on here. I think we've pretty much all felt the same, and I still have moments of paranoia! For me, It has felt safer to worry!

nerual Tue 14-May-13 12:03:57

Just had 20 week scan, all seems fine, and it's a girl! Still not felt much movement but guess that could be my flabby tummy left over from DS1...

PurplePoppySeed Tue 14-May-13 12:27:50

Great news smile I had my 20 week scan just before heading off on holiday (still in Portugal at the moment). We didn't find out the sex, but at least I now know why I can't feel anything - anterior high placenta. The only places I can feel anything are inside my pelvis still! It's annoying as the one thing I need to stop worrying is kicks! I'm sure I'll regret thinking this later though smile

This is our last baby free sun holiday (hopefully) it's well worth a Babymoon, even if I did make DH drive us all the way to the Algave as I was too silly to fly! ( I flew to Warsaw and back in week 6 last time which was around when baby stopped growing - I know I'm being paranoid, but figured better not to worry even if about silly things! )

nerual Tue 14-May-13 12:48:47

Oh very jealous of your holiday! I don't think we will get to go away before arrival of this baby. holidays are quite different once you have kids! But we did go to portugal last year with DS1, and he did really enjoy it, the weather and beaches there are perfect for toddlers. I'm sure you will be back smile
Can't believe you drove!!

PurplePoppySeed Tue 14-May-13 13:07:33

I know - i'm crazy but am relaxing instead of worrying! Its not as far as i thought and its lovely having our own car here, we've seen quite a few ither UK cars too! We left on a Friday night ferry, arrived Caen 6am, drove to the Spanish border and had 2 nights in San Jean De Luz, then shared the driving through Spain (11hrs with my 50million wee stops) arriving 6pm Monday night! Had just over a week here so far, heading off thursday to be home sat night!

It does seem very kiddy friendly, we've already been round the mini golf without kids grin think you are right!

Ps. Meant to ask is your placenta anterior too?

nerual Tue 14-May-13 13:33:03

I didn't ask, is it the kind of thing they would mention without me asking?

PurplePoppySeed Tue 14-May-13 14:53:51

Should be on your notes from the scan smile they'd only tell you if you ask or if its low. Could be high anterior like mine, hence less feelings?

nerual Tue 14-May-13 15:01:56

I only get my notes next week (they have taken ages to appear because they were archived as they mistakenly had me down for a miscarriage this pg!). So they've had to dig them out of archives, I get them next week when I go back for my consultant appt. Will have a look then... It could also just be because it's my second pg; although I am by no means overweight, my tummy is definitely not as tight as it used to be (*sob*) so I think that the kicking is not as noticeable...

PurplePoppySeed Tue 14-May-13 16:08:29

Ah ok, my scan write up said it, they handed me that in the room & I added it to my folder. I can't believe the mess they made with your notes re another MC - shocking!

elsabel Tue 14-May-13 16:49:22

Hi all, havent been on for a while and im glad to see everyone doing well! Congrats to all of you who have recently had good scans!! smile

I only have 19 days until my due date..eek!! Has gone so quickly i cant believe it!

elsabel Tue 14-May-13 16:50:37

Sorry was meant to be smile not smile haha

PurplePoppySeed Tue 14-May-13 16:55:16

Oh wow, brilliant news, could be any time now then ;) are you on maternity leave yet? I'm hoping to leave work as late as possible unless August becomes unbearably hot!

elsabel Tue 14-May-13 17:02:39

Friday is my last day, so only 3 to go! Cant come quickly enough just want to get sorted as dont feel very prepared! Midwife said shes a big baby, but apparently that doesnt mean she will be early so we will see smile

Whens your due date? Hopefully the summer isnt too uncomfortable for you

PurplePoppySeed Wed 12-Jun-13 16:29:06

It's gone very quite in here! elsabel how are you, any news?

Hope everyone is doing well?

Finally into the third trimester here, can't believe it! My last due date was this week so even though I'm pregnant again it's been a pretty emotional week, can't wait to get past it and feel more positive again smile

vix206 Wed 12-Jun-13 16:47:22

Hello! Can I de-lurk and join?

I miscarried at the end of March between 6-7 weeks pregnant. I'm now almost 8 weeks pregnant and hoping all is well this time. I also have a DS who is almost 3.

PurplePoppySeed Wed 12-Jun-13 17:53:35

Of course, welcome and sorry for your loss, its a scary time, keeping fingers crossed for you until your scan xx

it's been a bit quiet recently, hopefully everyone's ok and just so busy enjoying pregnancy, they've forgotten the thread wink

vix206 Wed 12-Jun-13 18:01:14

Thank you! Yay for you being in the 3rd trimester, I know I will feel sad come mid-November too.
