ongratulations to each one of you...
Pretty sure I am 7 weeks tomorrow but have my dating scan in the morning as I have such irregular periods.
I am new to this site but am very excited to chat and have the support of other mums going through their pregnancies.
I have 3 other children so this will be my fourth. Sometimes am so busy with the kids I forget to socialise myself. I thought this is a perfect way to do that when otherwise is too hard to arrange to catch up with friends especially now no ones knows of my pregnancy and not feeling too flash.
I have had 2 miscarriages before my last child. One needing a d and c. So have fingers crossed this one is okay.
We were planning on having my 40th birthday first as we have planned a trip away. We thought we would try once and if it works we calculated I would be in the second trimester hence over the morning sickness and still be able to enjoy our holiday. We actually didn't expect it to happen straight away because of my age etc and to be honest are really shocked!!! We have talked a lot about having another one it was just a matter of when we would start trying.
I am suffering extremely bad with morning sickness and am finding it hard to function with basic tasks and the tiredness... oh my golly the tiredness is off the scale. For some reason I suffer from heartburn and that feeling too full I could vomit right from day dot. I've struggled to find things to eat.
Anyone else suffering from this? I would love to hear your coping strategies. I have a new found love of my GP. She prescribed me Ondansetron and gave me other strategies for morning sickness right at my first appointment at 4 weeks. At that point i was okay and didn't need it. I took the first on the weekend as I had a little breakdown as the first week of morning sickness has really affected me emotionally. I don't have any help with my three, apart from my partner of course but he works long hours. It was magic! I ate and enjoyed it...it was fantastic!
Just to share I have a Vicks nasal stick which I have to use when I change my daughters nappy. It actually helps a bit with the gagging and overwhelming need to vomit! lol
Anyway, I really am looking forward to the scan tomorrow so I can visualise the bubs and make sure all is okay. I think I need this so I can understand its all worthwhile because at the moment, it doesn't seem real!
Anyway i think i have babbled enough. Exciting times ahead and I look forward to sharing this with you!
