25 days!!! Oh my goodness, that's amazing. I started to count my working days last night and gave up lol.
How's the pain? Has it been any better?
I'm just so exhausted. Heartburn affecting my sleep and I just can't seem to bank enough sleep to get on an even keel. And I'm kind of hot and breathless a lot. We've a couple of big things at work today but if they go well I thought tomorrow I may have a 'tummy bug' and just do a bit from home. See if a break helps.
Hope everyone is doing well. Think S4 had an appointment coming up? Hope no one is too badly affected by the weather, it's still pretty horrid!

AR- 25 teaching days, wow- that seems like nothing.
Counter you sound like you need an easier day for sure, I hope you manage it tomorrow. Remember you need to try and look after yourself.
AFM- I'm a happier imp as my tooth finally feels like it's getting better! Rang the dentist who confirmed it could take a week and to wait until Fridays appt anyway. Nothing baby wise to report. Still stuck in weird limbo land with nothing going on.

It is horrible getting used to dark mornings again. My daughter has just told me it is the middle of the night.
AR- enjoy a relaxing first day back. Our kids are back in school today, yesterday was a training day. I am back on Thursday.
Counter- Are you taking anything for the heartburn? In my second pregnancy I was literally swigging gaviscon from the bottle.
imp- glad the tooth is feeling better
Well I actually had a fairly positive appointment yesterday. Baby has grown well. Estimated to be around 2lb 8! Which is amazing. I said to my H that I can cope with anything from here now as I was dreading having a NICU journey with a 1lb baby. BP and urine ate both behaving themselves. My blood count is pretty low though so have to repeat my bloods just before my next appointment. I don't seem to mix well with iron tablets. I did take pregaday in my last pregnancy without a problem. It is making me feel really ill this time around! So I am going to try and take spatone twice a day and see if that helps. I am still on weekly BP checks as PE can rear its ugly head at any time but so far so good. It looks like I will get to at least 30 weeks...even more....which is fab!

Great news S4, I hope baby grows nice and big and you get way past 30 weeks.
07/01/2014 at 08:34
S4, that's terrific news, what a relief.
And Imp, nice to get some respite from the tooth, toothache makes me cry lol!

AR- Easing yuir back into work sounds like the best way. 25 teaching days, that will fly by!
Counter- I had yesterday off and managed to catch up on some much needed sleep. I say do it! Heartburn is horrible isn't it.
Imp- Glad the tooth is getting better. You will soon start to feel flutters no doubt :)
S4- Thats brill news. Glad it's going well for you, must be a relief. Finres crossed it stays that way.
AFM- I took yesterday as a sick day, my first in over a year. I seem to have caught H's cold and kept feeling sick so thought a day in bed couldn't hurt. Had some low down pains though which concerened me a bit but seem to have gone today. Couldn't sleep very well due to sore throat and heartburn. Our pram arrives on Thursday, cant wait, that wa sour last big purchase.

Oh Bertie, sorry you've been poorly. I think everything hits twice as hard when you're preggo, or is that me being a wuss?! Hope you're soon well. Exciting pram coming, I love ours and we've not even put it all together yet. Only thing I have left now is bottles and steriliser. Everything else is just random bits and pieces you could grab at a supermarket :)
Oh, and the nursery!

God looking back at my post I sound right moany! Think the moving situation (they still havent found a house so we cant move in still) is just getting me down a bit now. But hey ho. feeling lots of kicks today so thats making me happy :)

Oooooo I'm over the threshold, helloooo :) I've been far to chicken to venture on 2nd tri, with concerns and bleeding, but here I am, giving it a go.
AR - hope your first day back has been ok and not too busy, 25 days wow, that's not much to go
Counter - it sounds as if you need some you time, sorry to hear about the heartburn yuck. Hope you get what you need to today at work and take a chill day tomorrow.
Imp - great news about your tooth, what a relief to feel some relief from it!
S4 - good news about your appt yesterday, bet you're are relieved from that :)
Bertie - sorry you haven't been feeling so good, I hope it bug*ers off quickly, we've just been getting over a bad cold that we got on Christmas Eve. I get loads of cramps and twinges down there, sometimes if feels like everything is going to fall out. Enjoy the delivery, of the pram on Thurs haha ;-)
AFM - I'm 18+4 today. Still feeling sick constantly and horrible taste in my mouth all the time (not metallic) and loads of twinges etc. I have the consultant appt on Thurs (very nervous, not quite sure what to expect) and our 20wk scan a week today eeek!
Hi to all that follow and hope you are all well :)

Welcome LeeLee! I think I saw you post before, glad you made it to us!
Sorry you're still poorly. I had one like that with my first and it never went away. The whole time was awful, hated every day of it. I promise it was worth it x

AR - 25 working days! That sounds like nothing!
Counter - Hope the heartburn subsides and you feel better soon!
Imp - Another in limbo land here, hopefully we will start feeling things soon!
S4 - Yay for positive appointment!
Bertie - Hope you feel better soon.
Counter - Must be exciting seeing all the baby bits coming together!
LeeLee - Hope the sick feeling goes soon.
AFM, have had a rough week, caught a stomach bug on New Years Eve so the rest of last week was spent feeling iller than I ever have done in my adult life! Everything is so much harder when you are pregnant! I thought yesterday I was finally feeling better, generally getting my appetite back, so had a nice big dinner for the first time since being pregnant and was kindly rewarded with indigestion! Dispatched hubby to Tesco to get some indigestion tablets but ended up spending all of the night up feeling really sorry for myself and sick :( Took a sick day today so hoping to feel better tomorrow! Going to go back to eating little and often I think!

Aw Vix, that sounds bluddy hellish. You poor thing. There's just no resilience when pregnant. The indigestion is a pain but it's fab you're actually eating. Hope tomorrow goes well :)
