Ye I got the letter, went through it this arvo will call them tomorrow. I guess I just need to stop being so slack & start looking into these things. Thanks for the reminder tho I probably never would have remembered until after Chrissy
Hello ladies, I'm sorry I haven't joined in more. I've been smacked fair and square by the fatigue fairy! I haven't caught up with the latest so I hope you are all well. This is probably going to sound odd.....but I received my confirmation of my hospital booking with my birthing classes dates and it suddenly hit home 'OMG IM PREGNANT AND IM ALMOST HALFWAY THROUGH!!!!' Has anyone else had this feeling? Or am I alone in my bizarre thoughts?
Another question.....I've felt Benedict move a number of times but nothing for the last week...I'm only 19 weeks...is that normal or should I be worried?
well time for me to hit the hay, I hope you have wonderful weeks and ill try to stop in more!
cheeky - Someone told me recently that their ob said you only need to worry about whether baby is moving every day or not after about 24 weeks. Before that it's apparently normal to feel stuff and then not for a while. I'm only 16w5d and even so I stress every time I don't feel movement for more than 12 hours, lol. Try not to worry for now, but if it starts concerning you get it checked out.. if nothing else it'll make you feel better.
Going to pregnancy physio this morning regarding my back rib pain. Dr and midwife suggested it. Its a free consultation for suggested exercise and pain relief at the hospital I'm going too.
But then last night she was kicking so high I was dumbfounded. I did measure 26cm at 23weeks for fundal height and have always measured ahead for that and sat really high. But it did have me wondering again is it squished organs and ribs or her jamming herself into them?
Im small framed so its only going to get worse.
Anyway the pain is far to frequent throughout the day over last few weeks .... so we shall see what I can do to relieve it. Then it shall be one less thing to whinge about
Have a great day lovelys may it be one with plenty of hiccups and kicks to keep us all stress free!

Sunshine - Out of interest, how did your back rib pain start? For the past week I've been getting mild aches and pains around the area of my lower ribs, particularly closer in to my spine. I also sometimes get discomfort lower down than that, which had me worried about my kidneys at first, but I think they're okay. My aches seem to get worse when I sit (in any chair/posture) for a long time, and often in bed too (also in different positions). If I get up and walk/move around, the ache seems to be relieved. I'm just wondering if it's the start of something similar to what you're suffering from. I have a short body, so I can imagine that my uterus wound be putting more pressure on my innards than someone with a normal/longer body..
Had my first obstetrician appointment at the Mater in Brisbane today. She was very quick, just checked my blood pressure, baby's heartbeat and my heartbeat. Then I had to wee in a cup so she could check my urine for protein. Everything is looking good. I'm booked in for another scan at 28 weeks.
Have given up on the home doppler since I can't seem to find the galloping horse easily anymore. I can hear movements and the cord beat and I think the baby is moving around all the time. Also now that the uterus is larger there is a big area to search, and more ways for baby to hide.
I can feel kicks, but it is maddening when I don't feel anything for a few hours and I start to worry again. The doc found the heartbeat straight away today (probably the hospital dopplers are much better than my cheap home one) but after a few seconds the baby moved again.
I'm also booked in for the antenatal classes at the Mater on the weekend of 23-24 Nov. When I called up they said that the weekend course was all they had left.
Appt today was great. So worth it.
Sounds similar. But m I ne is more lower to high ribs. Side than middle. Every day several times a day now. Sometimes few minutes sometimes fewhours straight!
Mine started acutely early August and ive been persevering. Bit angry that my private gp/ob originally just said everything moving up ...ya ya ... normal.. numbness from pinched nerve. It was ob and midwife at public hospital that pushed me to get onto it.
Everything is tight pulling and straining muscles and crushing my ribs to compensate for belly and I was very restricted muscular movement, flexibility and mobility in my examination. I have exercises to do and she has scheduled me 3 free appts to start with. More if I require. .
Shes didn't like that it was causing numbness.
She said have to get onto it as will only get worse with bubbies weight. Wish I'd have gone weeks ago.
I thnk you read and hear how ribs gets pain and everything pushes up and yu cant twist and bend like pre pregnancy. I just accepted it was that and I was being a whinger or a woose. Seems its a bit more than that for me.
Are you public or private?... cannot believe the wonderful services public have offered me so far. Today i waited no more than 10 minutes. let me know how you go.
