thanks for your message, how's your third pregnancy going? do you know what you're having?
am definitely finding this pregnancy more tiring than the first as I was a student the first time round and now I'm working full time. My husband looks after our two year old full time and am very well looked after as he does all the cooking too! so I guess I'm more of the daddy in our relationship!
how do you get the ltitle timeline up on your messages?
i'm samiha from egypt and i just found out that i'm pregnant, 2nd time round. my baby is hopefully due in march 09 as well and i'm really excited although i'm wondering how hectic it will be with seif, my son around. he's crawling and cruising all around the house and i'm just following him all day.
anyway, i'm peeing alot too (that feeling that your bladder is constantly full although it's not, it's just the uterus pushing against it) but hopefully that will stop too.
we can definitely compare pregnancies and i hope to offer any help since its my second time around.
hey samiha - congratulations! you're brave having another one so close to your 10 month old, my little boy has just turned two and my second one is due in March too! i'm not peeing all that much, not like at the end of pregnancy when things are really squished, but feeling quite queasy most days..
Melanie - the girl cats idea made me laugh!! hadn't thought of that one! we'd love to have a little girl too, but it would also be lovely for ben to have a little brother too, and i think as long as they're healthy it doesn't matter. As Ben's only just turned two I'm not sure he would understand I'm having another baby, especially as my tummy's not got a bump yet, also, I think he's way too impatient to wait a whole 8 months more to meet his new brother and sister, so we probably won't tell him for a while yet.. what do you think? have you told your boys your pregnant?
WOW congratulations Samiha thats wonderful new.
Hi Kelly, congratulations on your pregnancy, im Emma mum to riley 3 1/2.
I'm Lisa, pregnant with baby number 2 and due Feb 09.
My second pregnancy has been much harder than my first too Kelly
how are things going with your second pregnancy? i think it's much harder second time round cos you have to look after a little person and not just yourself.. i'm finding it a lot harder as working full time and feeling nauseous all day. any tips on nausea?
have you got your 12 week scan coming up? that's something to look forward to
Hi Lucy and Melanie,
Yeah I'm working too Lucy so juggling a 3 year old, work, commuting and feeling like crap is probably why I am finding this pregnancy harder work. My nausea is from about 3pm til 11pm oddly so I am trying to eat a big breakfast and lunch then in the evening I just graze on water, the odd bit of toast or oatcakes/ crackers and try to eat something dry and light every hour to stop me being sick. So far thats working best for me. Ice lollies are good too - fruity ones when I am feeling nauseous. Tried all the ginger stuff and it just made me feel worse!
I bled from about 6-8 weeks so had an early scan & was monitored by early assessment unit then so I know all is well from that but I get my next scan on 28th July so that'll be much more clear - less like a miniscule shrimp hopefully lol
Welcome to PP - I'm Sarah and ttc#1 - good luck with your pregnancies and look forward to chatting to you soon
Samiha - OH WOW CONGRATULATIONS!! Dont forget we want pics of bumps and some updated ones of Seif
thanks, i dont feel quite so alone now, really suffering with the tiredness and sickness this time around. dont think I was this tired when I was pregnant with Alf!
Lucy - I have found lemonade helps with the nausea this time around!
