Hi All,
Im 7 weeks 5 days. And what an eventful time I started bleeding in New years eve, and bled for 6 days. Doctor advised I had miscarriage ( I have had a miscarriage before) and I was sure I had myself. But i rested in bed for a week anyway just in case. Went to Regional in Limerick last Thursday and low and behold they found a heartbeat! The bleeding has stopped. Unbeliveable! This is our second child. Our little girl will be age 2 and 11 months when the new arrival comes. I feel so guilty in case she feels left out. Hormones!


Oh my god Julie, I can only imagine what an awful and frightening time that must have been for you, you poor thing. But thats amazing news that your wee baby hung in there, talk about resilience! Make sure you take care of yourself now. You're wee girl might be a bit put out at the start but having a brother or sister will more than make up for that I'm sure xx

OMG is anyone else an emotional wreck? I never usually get (too) emotional, but today i'm away to hell. Hubby left the house with my bank card, thought he was coming back with it, and he never que the floods of tears, then couldn't find my daughters shoes for school and that just tipped me over the edge altogether, thought I was going to have a breakdown, and now this EFFIN nausea...WAAAA I just want this day to be over and it is only 9.10am

Thanks scunners, I don't know why I'm letting anxiety get the better of me, spos irrational emtions are a typical/good sign?! How about you, are you going to get an early scan done?


Definately think we're allowed a bit of anxiety, and think this may be par for the course for the next 18-forever years Wouldn't it be worse if we didn't care at all?

Gonna try and get a scan for when I'm about 11-12 weeks (around 3 weeks from now), then I can tell the world at last!! So much to look forward to around that time, as I'm also counting on the nausea, vomiting and exhaustion easing off after the first three months - hope I'm not fooling myself!

That's amazing Julie!! I was thinking of you actually and hoping everything was okay, cos you started off our thread and hadn't posted for a good while. So glad to hear everything's okay with the baby, what a determined little star!

Just got my first appointment with the Domino community midwives. I had a chat with one of them yesterday about what it all involves, and I explained I really don't want to close down my options for my first baby (they're not pro-epidurals and they do transfer home 6-12 hours after the birth with daily visits from the midwives and phone support - eek! - but apparently nothing is set in stone!) but overall I decided I wanted to go with them instead of outpatient obstetrics at Holles Street. Hope I've made the right decision!!!

PS anyone brave enough to watch one born every minute last night?

oh laura dont talk to me, i find myself crying at anything at the moment, i was cooking dinner yesterday and i forgot that my veg were on boiling and they were over done when i thought of them and i started bawling, my OH thought there was something serious wrong with me and when i told him what was wrong he just started to laugh at me....

If i'm honest Betsie, the main reason I posted about my bank card, is cause I know my hubby lurks in here. So boss, don't leave me without my bank card EVER AGAIN.

I am a wreck though, I had tears in my eyes reading about your veg (not laughing tears). Never in my life have i been so emotional. Can't wait till next Tuesday, I will be hitting the 12 week mark then, and I am expecting all these things to magically disappear, and they better. Where is this glowing woman i'm supposed to be, i want that pregnant symptom dag nammit

Anyone else suffering with nasal Rhinitus? I had it the last time and ended up nearly losing my mind when my two nostrils completely closed up. I can feel the start of it now again

Julie, I haven't stopped bleedin' sneezing for weeks. Think it's more than the bun though, but yep, I wake up bunged up.

As for emotions being all over the place, some dumbass just ran a red and blocked me turning right and I started to cry in the car. Then went into a shop and started to cry when the lady said I needed to leave a deposit. Am cranky, sad, sick, sick of feeling sick, and knaaaackered (conked out for an hour on the couch today and woke myself up with the heavy breathing!).

Other than that, everything is peachy. Except I have to go to yoga for the first time in aeons this evening and am afraid I am going to either ladytoot my way through it, or blow up to the size of a blimp. TMI?! Sorry :'-(

Oh and the only thing that seems to ease the nausea? 7Up and salt and vinegar hula hoops. I will be the size of a blimp soon.

Yeah I watched it, love that programme! I though the one who had the water birth did so well, she was so calm. The blonde one was the complete opposite, she kinda scared me!
