Morning. Yay for 12 weeks Vv!
I'm getting myself a bit worried today. I had some lower backache and aching hips/legs yesterday and this morning and am gettinng all worried that it means something is wrong. Only a week til 12 week scan, so am trying to stay positive and hoping it's just stretching. Anyone else had this? No cramps or anything else.
Hope you all have a good day.

Mermaid, I really wouldn't worry I have had lots of different aches and pains through out. Aching hips and legs a lot.
20/05/2013 at 09:24
Thanks. It's my back i worry about but hoping it's just stretching and the little bean we saw 3 weeks ago is still ok.
20/05/2013 at 09:29
It's so difficult isn't it, between each scan I worry about every little thing.
20/05/2013 at 09:39
Yay that at is so excitingVivixon!!! Lots of vibes for tomorrows scan!
mermaid- I had lower back pains y.day evening! I didnt think much of it, It wasnt as weird as what happenned to me while i was in the cinema. I suddenly got pins & needles and numbness in my left hand. i stretched it and kept cletching my fingers, i assumed id just sat on my hand and not noticed. then it happened to the left side of my face, my lips went numb and tinglie! Lasted about 10 mins! I thought I was having a mini stroke but my H said I was being dramatic!
Im still waiting for my scan date, getting more and more nervous and convincing myself more and more that im not actually pregnant! I think I would have gone totally round the bend by the time its actually scan day!
9 + 5

Vivixon- good luck for tomorrow, I'm sure it'll all be good but I know that until you see the little bubba you won't be able to relax.
Mermaid- I hope the aches and pains aren't anything serious, they are probably just stretching pains as you say.
Mrs bass, that sounds really scary. Have you noticed scything since?
AFM- I feel like poop today. My nose hasn't stopped running since yesterday and its driving me mad. I sometimes suffer with rhinitis, but I can't take anything for it at the moment so I'm suffering a bit. Plus I've had an email from my boss first thing this morning which has annoyed me, not a good start to the day!!!
20/05/2013 at 09:49
Happy 12 weeks V! Good luck for your scan
Everything is a worry isn't it m!
Mrs b- hope your scan date comes soon.
I'm off work feeling meh! My scan is 2 weeks today. I'll try to post again later when I have a few more brain cells and I can think what to write!

Hi VV, thats good your on your last day of the drugs and that's so exciting for tomorrow!
Mermaid - I think that's quite 'normal' is it not? There's obviously alot of stretching and things moving in there so I don't think that's unexpected. That's good you've already has a scan so you know the little beans in there ok. I hope the next week goes quickly for you!
Mrs Bass - That does sound scary! I take it it's never happened before or again?
Morning Imp - sorry your not feeling good, it's difficult not being able to take anything. My boss is a night owl, so I get emails at midnight, 2am, you name it. I get up in the morning and have like 15 emails on my blackberry from overnight, it REALLY hacks me off!
AFM - I had a really awful nights sleep last night and I'm exhausted. I'm struggling already and not even made it to 10am. I've also been feeling really sick, but not actually been sick. I feel a bit better when I have something to eat, so I'm questioning whether this is pregnancy related or just because I'm hungry! Nothing much else from me, just be glad when the day is over!
20/05/2013 at 09:53
Sorry missed you there Custard, hope your feeling better soon x
20/05/2013 at 10:03
Custard sorry you're felling rubbish. Hope you're better soon.
Mdd- sorry about your nights sleep. Are you just uncomfy still? Is it worth buying one if this special pillows, if its that? I'm generally the same with sickness, if I eat I feel better for a little bit. I'm eating at least every two hours at the moment! I'll be the size of a house soon!
Imp and dee dee you can join me on the woe is me bench :(
20/05/2013 at 10:16
I'm definately on the bench Custard! Imp yeah combination of being uncomfortable, strange 'pains' albeit they're not really painful but I can feel them, which I'm putting down to stretching etc. I get them in my hips which is uncomfortable, sore boobs and waking up needing to pee. I'm also hot, cold, hot, cold so covers on, off, on, off! I did fall asleep on both sat and sun in the afternoon but just for a bit half hour/an hour but I'd been up since before 6am so it's not that I wasn't tired at night. Hopefully it will get better! I've seen those pillows but I thought they were aimed at when you had a bump and was uncomfortable from that. I'm hoping I'll be so tired tonight I'll just crash out and sleep right through.

Goooood morning everyone! :o)
Vivixion, yay for 12 weeks! :o)
Mermaid, try not to worry. It is perfectly normal to experience aches and pains, esp back pain and lower abdomen cramps. Everything is stretching :o)
MrsBass, hope you are not waiting too long!
lmp, hope the runny nose clears and it doesn't develop! I have had a runny nose for about 2 weeks now, it's horrid!
Custard, hope you feel better soon!
MissDD, hope your day gets better! 1st tri can be so awful :o(
AFM, 12+4 and scan tomorrow :o) Nearly time to head to 2nd tri, is it 13 weeks?
Had a lovely weekend away at Pontins, Brean Sands. I am not a fan of holiday camps but it was just lovely to get away for a weekend. B had a blast swimming, playing crazy golf, meeting new friends and playing football and was up dancing in the club until 11pm both nights! Little raver!
I am getting kicks! Early but definitely kicks, baby was going crazy on our first day there, was really wonderful to feel :o) My only concern is there was also some fluttering on the other side so eeek! We will know tomorrow I guess :o)
Have a lovely day all :o)

Vivixon - yay for being 12 weeks!
mermaid - I think that your pains are probably strecthing, but at least you have the scan soon for confirmation.
Mrs Bass - that's weird about the tingling but maybe where things are stretching and moving in your body, something pressed on a nerve. I used to get something similar just before AF, when I was all bloated. How long until you know your scan date?
Imp - boo to your boss annoying you, and to not feeling well. Hopefully your day will get better. In the meantime, have a hug.
Custard - sorry you're not feeling well. Have a hug too.
missdeedee - I hope you feel less tired as the day goes on. It sucks when you have a bad nights sleep, doesn't it.
AFM - can I join you lot on the 'woe is me' bench? I've had a bad cough for almost a week now and I'm fed up with it. On the pregnancy front - no sickness for me yet but my mum mentioned that she had none when she was carrying me (although did with my sister) so I feel a bit reassured by that. My boobs don't feel that sore anymore though, and I'm not sure if I'm tired because of pregnancy or because I've been so busy. Maybe I'm just getting used to these things so don't feel them as much? I'm not all that bloated either but I am constantly hungry. I'm still considering booking another scan for 10 weeks, but not sure. My H doesn't think it's necessary but I do - for my own sanity.
20/05/2013 at 10:31
Chimpanzee - yay for baby kicks! That's amazing. Gald you had a lovely weekend away. I saw your note on the facebok thread about wanting to be added but as your baby is due in 2013 and I'm not an admin of the 2013 group (just the 2014 one) you'll need to wait to be added by one of those ladies I'm afraid.
20/05/2013 at 10:33
Hi Penny, thankyou, will check back on it later to see if I can grab an admin from there. Would be nice to keep up to date with others on facebook! :o) x
20/05/2013 at 10:34
Penny, each pregnancy is different and for every person with very bad morning sickness, there is someone with none at all! Try not to worry, easier said than done! :o)
20/05/2013 at 10:49
OMG Chimp, that's amazing! I know alot of women feel it earlier the second time but that's fab!
Penny - that's good that your mum didn't have MS either though, my mum was the opposite, she was hurling at every moment so I'm kind of expecting it (although I know everyone and every pregnancy is different). Like you, as much as I don't actually want sickness, I will be quite glad of it as it will make me feel more reassured! We've got a private scan booked for 2 weeks on sat, so I should be 9+2, which will be 3 weeks from my scan last week and then only 3 weeks until my 12 week scan. I'm not sure I could last the 6 weeks otherwise, but that's more with what happened last time. I've also still got some brown cm but I'm just trying to ignore it and think it's 'one of those things'!
20/05/2013 at 11:18
Once it stopped it was fine and didnt come back!
Penny you could be right about the nerve, I hadnt thought about that! My mum didnt have any sickness with me either but apparently did with both my brothers so she thinks that is a sign im having a girl! Im just grateful im not hurling!
Chimp it sounds like you had a great weekend! How exciting about feeling the kicks! I didnt realise you could feel them so early!! Lots o vibes for your scan tomorrow!
For all of you on the 'Woe is me bench', I hope your feeling better soon and get a good nights sleep!!
