Tinachris and @Chyna just was massive 2 weeks at work and had house guests with a toddler last weekend so lots of driving around, cooking, cleaning etc on top of work stress. Glad I had a little warning sign to stop. I'm now clocking off for rest of weekend except for battling the Aldi snow sale 7am lineup and crowds this morning for my DS11 who's off to a Canberra/Perisher ski trip in July. Exciting!
@MamaKes I hope you can take it to easy. I was surprised at my 7 week scan that Charlotte immediately vetoed any exercise and said she'd review when we got to the second trimester. Maybe IVF and/or our age make us more delicate than your previous pregnancy? DH and your boys will just have to pamper you!
Gagingi I'll try my best. I think I've just been so used to 'soldiering on' I forget I'm not 30 still like I was with DS. That's interesting to hear what Charlotte said about exercise. Any other Intel or advice she gave you? Keeping you on all meds I suppose and seeing you next for 9 week scan? I'm seeing her Wednesday now for scan.
When I had spotting at about 8 wks pregnant with my first bub...Waz ordered bed rest for 2 wks. Don't over do it. Better to be safe than sorry.
@Chyna - Hope your enjoying your weekend hun its been great weather this weekend. How exciting seeing bub at your scan on Monday, keep us updated, that 12 weeks seems to have gone fast, maybe not so much for you lol!
@MamaKes - Sounds like a good plan for you to rest up this weekend hun hope its done the trick and the brown spotting has stopped.
@Gagingi - How interesting that Charlotte has advised no exercise. Sounds like a good appointment you had with her though.
