Coffee break (one per day)
I'm almost over this cold and throat infection and I'm amazed that I'm all OK.
I've chosen a "normal" specialist (not a FS) and this decision basically made itself - based on the choice of hospital in Hobart and that this OB performs CVS etc. for the region. I also booked in for the NT ultrasound during the 12th week.
Making these bookings for 3 and 4 weeks time seems to offend my superstitious nature _ I am not even knitting for this potential baby because I am so fearfully respectful of producing a healthy, full term baby at this age. But then I remember the tragedies that occur at all maternal ages... I lost my son's twin when I was 26 yo and had a premature birth at 31 weeks. I put that down to the difficulties of first time pregnancy. My second twin pregnancy was near perfect.
I also have been trying to confront my fears by looking at some very sad YouTube vids. It ain't working, although I have succeeded in convincing myself that bad outcomes are random and there's no point in worrying anymore because it really is out of my control.
MammaL - what's a GD test?
Hope everyone is getting out in the sunshine everyday and soaking it up for 30 minutes.

Hey ladies! Pru40 you have to step away from the negativity dude, I really do so hope you go full term and when you do you'll look back and think 'what a waste of energy that was' (maybe?). It must be difficult to believe when you've had a tough time but do try to stay positive, you're still here right?! When I was first preggers I wouldn't read ahead in the pregnancy week to week because I never dared to dream I'd get to 17 weeks, but it seems to be happening.
Great news that you're nearly over the cold. I had it too and was off work for 3 days but thankfully its't gone now. I went to the doc when I was sick and he said the reason it was taking so long to shake was cos all my resources were working on protecting bub, so I was just fine with that, go to it I say, I have sick leave to take and I'm not adverse to sitting on my but watching the rot that is daytime telly, altho after a couple of days I do find myself convinced that an Abcircle Pro and super steam mop with all possible attachments will enhance in my life greatly
GD is gestational diabetes Pru, I'm guessing that must be the 32 week scan and there isn't one between 20 and 32.
Mammalinz I got a snuggle bed, some maternity clothes, a baby bjorn, a bath that you don't have to hold them in, a high chair, a thing that looks like a potty but isn't a potty, it helps them sit up once they can suport their own head and we're in line for a cot once our niece's one year old goes into her own bed - talk about baby on a budget! We have a very large family with yongens so that helps.
Siennaray hope everything went well with the CVS, I'm still keeping everything crossed for you.
Hey Lilwish, what's happening with you, have you starting vomiting yet?!
Do we need a roll call update with scan dates yet?

07-10-2011 10:28 #96Hi girls,
I'm a mess today. Keep crying everytime I talk.
Dtd this morning, which caused huge cramping and then a little bleed. I felt like I was going to throw up, then broke into a cold sweat & burst into tears (shock?). I just kept saying I don't want to loose it again.
Spoke to acup but she's booked til 8.30 tonight no break. Has given me instructions to get moxa stick and will email points to apply to help. She called back to say her partner can see me this morn & she will instruct him (he's an acup but she's the fert expert) but I said if he's just going to do moxa as I can myself I'd rather not see anyone or tallk to anyone. DH is going to valley to get stick and bring it home for me.
Also spoke to FS. He's booked scan for Tue now (wk earlier) - doesn't want it to be too early to see anything. He said if bleed becomes like period or cramps get worse and worse, come to emergency for pain relief and they'll get him.
Lying around with heat pack. Cramps less but dull discomfort.
I'm so worried and upset. I really don't want to mc again
07-10-2011 11:11 #97
The instruction my FS gave me were to rest and have a glass of red wine to calm down. He said the only thing which stops a mc is bed rest.
It could simply be the sensitivity of the cervix in early pregnancy which has caused the spotting, especially if it is red rather than brownish.
Do you know about progressive muscle relaxation? It works really well like acupuncture. Try not to stress if you can't see your acupuncturist today, maybe it is better to stay put in bed and lean on DH?
Lots of healthy pregnancies have some spotting.
I've been getting some cramping and lower back pain in connection with too much physical exertion - housework mostly.
Perhaps watch telly and try to distract yourself from the awful thoughts you must be having, there's lots of good stuff on ABC iView at the moment.
Thinking of you

I'm feeling a little bit better. Just got thru a whole ph call with DH without crying!
Got the moxa and have done the points I can reach. DH - will have to do my back point the arvo. These points are meant to help stop bleeding and nourish kidney qi.
cramping is just constant discomfort now - not sharp or anything, and spotting is minimal.
Prob is just cervix upset about dtd... talk about a put off! no more!
I guess I just had to bring scan a wk forward somehow cos can't stand the wait - will be 7wks on Tue for scan.
Just in bed all day today for me.
Hopefully will be all ok
08-10-2011 09:08 #99
Oh Lilwish you poor thing, I'm not suprised you're in tears, the tears are never far away as it is with all these hormones! How're you feeling today?
What's a dtd by the way, I'm not familiar with that one. Take it easy, rest up, no vaccumming until after the 12 week mark I was told - no idea why but I was happy to take the advice and there seems to be alot about housework on the internet, so that goes for you too Pru! ;o) how're you feeling?
Bring on Tuesday hey? Sending you all the hugs and good vibes in the world
Siennaray that's such wonderful news, you can relax and settle into your pregnancy now.
08-10-2011 10:31 #100
Well my laptop seems to be possessed so will retype this post...
Thanks lovelies for all yr kind words and support. I'm feeling a lot more positive - prob was just dtd that caused it all - no more of that! (Lizzie, that's doing the deed)
Cramps much better, still a little spotting but moxa seems to help so will keep that up.
Watching funny movies in bed today and having a lazy weekend.
Good thing to come of it is scan is only few days away now.
DH bought me flowers, choc & twisties (my fav) - so I know how to get attention, don't I
Siennaray, congrats on cvs result - you must be over the moon!
Lizzie, Thanks for all the good vibes - they must be working
Hope everyone else is well
