df, I know exactly how you are feeling.

I have been getting increased discharge and can actually feel it dribbling. It is very watery, but not smelling anything different to normal- so assumed all was ok (even tho I had myself worked up for the ob again today thinking it wouldnt be).
I think what key says is pretty good info and I second everything she says.

hugs to you, I know what the constant worry is like and unfortunately, nothing can really releive the anxiety sad.gif

That is the part that I am finding hard. Ppl keep saying "relax all tests have come back fine, why are you still stressing?"... its hard to explain, until bub is at home with us, not sure I will relax - cant answer why but am hoping I am wrong and can somewhat relax after the next scan.

My other issue its been so long since last pg, I dont remember what is "normal" so its embarrassing when I ask (Dr, Nurse etc) and they say "Oh thats just part of pg"... I have had 3 - I SHOULD know! But again its been over 8 yrs since last successful pg and since the accident my memory is real bad.

Thank you!!!!

- Still anxious as but trying to "think" positive thoughts and repeating "Tuesday not that far away!"

ETA: Silly questions:

1.What could ultra sharp pains in the hoo-har be? Have never had them for any pg so am worried.

Don't know for sure but I had them periodically with Carys, some of them really made me wince and/or gasp. I think it was a case of nerves getting pinched with increasing pressure & the pain running down those nerve networks to related areas.
2.Due to be strapped to machinery each labour, never got to see what was happening "down there"... when your waters break - is it clear? or ??? Honestly have never saw it, just the aftermath with birth etc.
Usually a version of clear, often tinged with a little blood or meconium. Mec in the waters isn't always panic stations either, it's usually only an issue if there's a lot of it which can be an indicator of fetal stress. I never saw mine with Caelan, with Carys it was clear but a bit pinky/orange tinged.

DF - I feel like I'm constantly leaking too.

I am reading along but only have one hand. Plus every time I start to type my eyes remind me how tired I am!

DF - thinking of you

mama - you go girl, is there a PowerPoint presentation with that lecture?

Teddy doing well, milk has started coming in so  I'm just letting him feed constantly and hoping to avoid any more sugary formula! He likes to be held and as such (pushover that I am!!) I'm falling asleep propped up with him on my chest. Naughty!

I can't keep my eyes fr crossing! Back later. Xxx

DF, I really hope everything is ok with you and bub, how stressful for you. I think I would be exactly the same in your situation.

Mamabug, asprin is for clotting issues, not sure of the exact name, dr has never said. But it has taken 2 different specialists to finally work out its what is needed.

jen1607, my goodness you poor pin cushion. Hope your hands are feeling better. I hate needles, my hat goes off to you and please feel free to vent away.

bigmum, glad your ob appointment went well and your big boy s growing nicely.

jen42, great news that Teddy is doing well. Hope you are feeling .much better now.

AFM: Had a little scare today. When I went to the loo and wiped, there was a little blood in my cm. I freaked out, rang dh and he came home from work and got me in for an early u/s. We seen our little one and its heart was beating along nicely at 110bpm. I thought it sounded a little low, but the sonographer said it was a good reading. Measuring behind by 2 days, which is what I thought from the OPK's. I am so relieved. So now I am 6 weeks today instead of 6+2, and due good friday original.gif

ChocMud: It is great to hear all was ok. I measured a week and a half behind (tho I am sure they are not taking into consideration I am not that tall!! lol)

Jen42: Glad all is going well with Teddy!!! Hope you get some sleep soon.

Indah: I am not finding it fun but after the comments today think its "normal"

Mumabug: Hope your day with the tradies improved (saw other thread).

Hi to all I have missed!!!

Sorry for the me me posts today - really bad day.

Going to "try" to believe the following;
  1. (As DH mentioned) After 3 kids probably have a weak pelvic floor so unless tinged with colour I am not going to stress (yep right)
  2. Pain is normal (from what I was told) with subsequent pgs - while pg and after birth (can vouch for that one).
  3. All is ok and will be ok with bub!
  4. If on Tuesday there is bad news will get through (probably sounds horrid saying it like that) but I will work through as I have done so in the past and will re-visit TTC in January (if feel can go through all this again). BUT this is just a small thought as BUB is going to be alright!!!
  5. I will try to enjoy the two days break doing nothing in another town!
Have a 3am wake up so better call it a night. If I dont get a chance to go online while I am away I wish you all have a great weekend!!!

Hi Ladies,

I had a lovely time away but am glad to be home original.gif

Congrats to Jen - Teddy sounds just divine! Glad your milk has come in and hope his BSL stabilise soon.

DF - I am soooo with you and theh worrying. My CM/Secretions have increased heaps lately. I swear I have never analysed or smelt sick.gif the toilet paper so many times ddoh.gif Am fiarly certain it is just extrasecretions but will mention it to the OB next appointment

Choc Mud - sorry you had a scare. Glad you got to see bubs and HB sounds good for 6 weeks tthumbs.gif

Indah - How far along are you? I agree the leaking is frustrating. It keeps reminding me to do my pelvic floor exercises!

BigMum - Hi waves.gif

Key - I get the odd sharp pains down either side of my hoo-har but it seems to just be nerves etc

AFM - Had a lovely holiday but my body is falling apart. Hips felt like they were crumbling for a few days and lowerback ache, general exhaustion despite sleeping and have had to wear liners constantly due to 'leaking' Have had period type pain in my back - is that BH? The other BH pain is more in the front of my tummy.

Noww have swelling in hands - don't really know how to stop that!? Suggestions?

Am going to watch a movie with DH so will catch up again tomorrow

Smith xx

Jen - Congrats on the birth of Edward; love the name. It's actually a name that DP & I both love but it doesn't go with the surname. Glad you are both safe and recovering well.

ok have woken up in quite a bit of pain. There is some movement but it's painful. Lower back now has joined in. Know I'm likely stressing for nothing but can't get checked until Monday. Sure if was having a m/c would be a lot more painful (trying to convince myself).   Sorry for the bad post just can't stop stressing and not sure how going to handle flight.  One day I'll not be stressed!

DF, hhugs.gif It's just no fun how difficult pregnancy is. I really wish I could offer you some comfort. What are you taking for the pain? Being tense is going to make any back pain stronger IME, so the increased pain could be from the stress you are feeling. Get a wheat pack on the area or have a warm shower.

I found at your gestation that the baby moved around a lot in the air. no idea why. he is fine on flights now. You may find more discomfort during the flight, but if your doc has given you the okay, you should be fine. Of course, as much as your DD wants to go, if you can't, you can't. Perhaps you should talk to your sister about meeting DD at the other end?

Smith- good to have you back. I'm glad you had a good time. Don't ask me about BH! I ended up in hospital with what I thought were excessive BH, and it turned out to be a wriggly baby  ddoh.gif as for the swelling- keep your fluids up, although once it starts it sometimes doesn't stop until you have the baby. I've got a little retention everywhere. My neck looks horrible

choc- hate a scare like that! I am glad everything is okay. Best to get it checked though.

Jen, Kuta, TNMN- thanks for continuing to visit us! I miss you

discharge- I started wearing panty liners about 3 weeks ago. may have to go to pads soon...

Jens- I hope the bruising has subsided and your hands aren't too sore anymore. sometimes I would prefer the cut my arm open and just gathered it in a dish instead of hunting for veins!

Indah- congratulations on reaching 16 weeks! fantastic milestone

Mama- what do you have on today? vaccuming walls? painting ceilings? bossing around tradies? I think I need to teach you how to sit on your ass and do nothing!

Angel, MrsNorthman, Athnessa- how are you?

AFM- i got 6 straight hours of sleep! it was amazing. I decided at 4.30 not to linger in bed anymore and get some stuff done. Got my pram and capsule yesterday and spent last night playing with it. It's huge! I may need a new car...

Well, not quite that much:
- dealing with rotten tradie and pointing out a few details such as: installation did not match diagram, water pump not correctly sited, fittings removed from site, client's materials used in install when quote was for "supply", shall I continue????
- oh, calling bank and cancelling cheque for above work.
- finish packing bag for hospital.
- a few other bits

mama, my hat's off to you! you certainly play hard ball. why pay for crap service.

just got back from the GP- no GD! very excited.

DF, if you are reading, -I hope you are okay and relaxing at your family's place.

#139 Mamabug

Posted 13 August 2011 - 11:11 AM

Kate - yay for no GD. Completely understand the sense of relief :-)

AFM - sorry, but this is a me, me, ME post:

I just want to curl up in the foetal position and cry...but I can't...cause the person already curled up in the foetal position would protest violently at being squished!!!! wacko.gif wacko.gif  

I really don't need to deal with this whole water tank situation right now. We have just had an emergency delivery of water - in the not leaking tank! - so at least we can flush the toilet again...

We are doing a day trip to the new house on Monday, which is a 400km return drive, I have ob on Tuesday, Wednesday I need to get house and kids sorted, becuase, did I actually mention at any point that I am supposed to be having this baby on Thursday?

I am feeling whelmed, decidedly, absolutely whelmed...

just wanted to say df: at your gestation I got alot of pain (back and front) and thought big time I was in for a m/c. Turns out the doctor said at that gestation baby can jump in and out of the pelvis and it can cause alot of pain!
will pm you some other stuff. Hope you are ok

Morning all. Where do you all find the time for personals? lol.

Smith, not sure anything really helped for the swelling, all I can say is the first pregnancy of mine was the worst for swelling and I ended up wearing 2 sizes to big mocassins to work in the last month ohmy.gif
It dissapears after birth....is that a consolation?
When you're pregnant, there is more fluid going through the lymphatic system. Hence the swelling.

Mama, good on you. If you werent happy (and sounds as tho he had attitidue), you cancel his cheque until he fixes things to match his quote.

Kate, what pram did you get? Sometimes the prams etc looks big, but we mums manage to fit EVERYTHING in ours cars lol!

chocmud, glad you got to see your baby. I had a bleed this pregnancy with alot of cramps at 8 weeks. He is still here fighting, but it will forever be scary!

Yesterday my sister finally gave birth to James 6 pd 12 at 36w4d by induction after suffering GD on insulin since 15 weeks, high bp on meds, liver cholestasis, and having to have injections for chicken pox vacc! All is well and I am so pleased that she can enjoy her baby instead of having all these ailments. ( plus poms complain about everything-she's aussie but her dh isnt and they are in the uk, so will be nice to have a call without pregnancy complaining, although granted, she had a good excuse!!)
Take care everyone and have lovely days. mine include cleaning, cleaning and cleaning. Which as dh got to bed at 2 am I'm guessing he wont be doing much sad.gif

ETA: Mamma! NO...or did you? That soon? You really were up next! NO DENYING IT NOW!!! Woohoo! Bring on next thursday. Enjoy your week to pass the time tho!

Mama - bbighug.gif sorry you are feeling 'whelmed' You have a lot on your plate at the moment. Really hope things settle down quickly!!

DF - Hope the flight goes ok. I agree with Kate - Get a heat pack and make sure you let hostess's know you're pregnant and in pain. If there is any chance they can bump you up to business class then hopefully they will.

Kate - Woot woot for not GD eexcite.gif It's not the end of the world but is a real pain the the butt having it LOL

BigMum - Congrats on being an Aunty original.gif Glad your sister's bub arrived safely and hopefully the whinging stops! roll2.gif

AFM - shocking sleep and feel fairly shocking in general. Am supposed to be seeing some friends today but it is too far to drive and I feel cr@ppy so think I will cancel. Am going to pop out to Big W sale instead and do some chores.

DH (bless him mad.gif ) did no cleaning while I was away & house is the pits! I hate coming home to a messy/dirty house

Hi Ladies, reading along but the phone keeps fading in and out of reception - by the time I've written this it could take half an hour to come back in, by which time I've forgotten...oops!


Mama - hugs, you'll be GREAT. Give those tradies 200% of your pregnancy hormones original.gif Not long until baby bug is here and you'll be well distracted by that!!

DF - I'm thinking of you and reading along on FB. As you say, I'm sure Oreo is fine but hopefully you are too. Enjoy Sydney.

Bigmum - congratulations on baby James, he did well to make it this far.

Kate - "still visiting" laughing2.gif I haven't been over to the grad group yet - it feels weird not to be pregnant any more!

Smith - glad you had a nice holiday.

Hi everyone else, hopefully those in the 12WW are creeping ever closer.

Me - Edward continues to be up all night and sleep during the day - although not much!! I got him to bed this morning just before 6am! After being up at 6.30pm. I fell asleep with him on me a dozen times for a few minutes and woke up in a panic. Iknow it's allnormal but by crikey! Oliver continues to manage very well although he is very aware of what is "olivers" and what isn't. He WANTS Teddy's Teddy original.gif

I get a run down of the c/s complications tomorrow and find out if we can have more kids. Hopefully, as the issues were outside the uterus, but we won't know for sure until tomorrow.

In "woe is me" news, I bought my thank you cards, envelopes and stamps to the hospital this time so I didn't forget who got what.

The only flaw in my plan is that no one got anything roll2.gif

I have flowers from DH's work, a cupcake from one friend and a balloon, a small cake from another friend and a small (3 inch) Teddy from another friend. Hmmm. I feel a bit embarrassed sending a thank you card for a balloon (small) or a cupcake laughing2.gif Poor Teddy - Oliver was spoiled rotten! Maybe people will send gifts to his house?

Ok,off to 'rest' until Teddy gets up again.

Jen, I found that people were just a bit slower on the gift front, but we did end up with tonnes of things for Freya. Often people don't get a chance to go shopping before visiting you in hospital. So, I'm sure ?Teddy will also be spoilt!

Okay, got lemon merangue cupcakes to make...

Chocmud sorry you had a scare, but great bubs is looking ok and you got to see HB.

Mama wow I didn't realize you were due next week! How exciting!! Try and relax and get some rest the next few days.

DF I hope the flight goes ok and you get to rest up in Sydney.

Hi to all others. Sorry am on my phone so it's hard to read back over previous posts.

AFM, still hanging in there. Getting my scan in a week and a half which seems forever away. Got my Hcg tested during the week and it was 7360 which was right for 5-6 weeks. I am not going to do it again. Did it last time and it didn't change the mc so figured it is pointless monitoring whether it is rising right. I'll just wait the outcome of the scan. No ms for me yet but have incredibly sore breasts, which I'm taking as a good sign.
