||My mood while writing this blog:|
I know I shouldn't be stressing about it, but I have this fear (which I'm sure all of us do) of having a missed miscarriage. I had a few days when my nausea was really bad, but that has eased now and that worries me, I feel almost 'normal' again. I still have really sore boobs, and feeling a bit tired but not that bad, if I didn't know I was pregnant I probably wouldn't even notice I was tired. And I'm not emotional at all. I've only cried once since falling pregnant and that was a couple of weeks ago. Last night hubby and I were playing boxing on the Wii and I got some sharp pains/cramps across my tummy. I stopped playing straight away and just sat on the sofa and chilled and they stopped right away, and I haven't had them since, and have had no bleeding or spotting.
I have my first midwife appointment on Monday, but I have no idea what to expect from it. Do any of you ladies in the UK know if they will use a doppler at this first appointment to look for a heartbeat? Going by my period, I'm 9 weeks 6 days gone, so I really hope they book me in for my 12 week scan soon so I can put my hear at rest. DH and I go on holiday to Thailand for 2 and a half weeks on the 24th Jan (booked before we knew I was expecting) and so I am really keen to know all is ok before I go. I think if they won't do a scan before we go I will pay £100 for a private one so I can relax and enjoy the break....
Ahhh, I wish I could stop worrying and relax, but I just can't....

- Saturday, 9 Jan HUGE Hugs Pol!! When I was pregnant with Abs, I was only preggo tired maybe a handful of times.. definitely not more than 5... the ONLY symptom I had was sore BB's and that came and went.. I have to agree with Ash.. maybe take an IAP break or any preggo website break until you get a little more confident in your pregnancy. With all lof us praying for you, you'll have your babe in arms in about 7.5 months! Brenduh
- Friday, 8 Jan oh pol...i can't relate with you more. ((hugs and kisses)) Im in the same boat as you, no symptoms except for really sore bb's and tired a lot. Some days im not tired at all and others I just wanna sleep all day. The only difference is that I had an ultrasound the day before my 7 week mark. I got to hear the Hb and I saw its chest cavity pumping away. Im sure things are completely normal for you. Some women have a lot of symptoms and some don't. I asked my doctor about all the cramping and ovary pain she explained that it was completely normal and that when I get that pain to drink lots of water and to try to stay hydrated throughout the day. I agree with ashley-blesseddaily perhaps the best thing for you n for me is to stay off this site till our 12 week mark cause hearing of those ppl have miscarriages puts me in a paranoid mood too. We want to have healthy babies so of course we worry. I hope this brings you some peace.Much loveBrenda ashley-blesseddaily
- Friday, 8 Jan (((BIG HUG))))What you are feeling is normal, 100%, especially after hearing many of teh horror stories from others losing their precious little ones. It may actually do you some good to stay away from the site for the next month or so, till you get past the 12 week mark. Just a suggestion, it was something I fond helped me. It is hard to keep the fears out of your mind when you are reminded of it Freespirit
- Friday, 8 Jan Hi Pol - I feel exactly the same as you at the moment - I miscarried at 8 weeks before and I am 7w3d at the moment. I am absolutely PETRIFIED at reaching 8 weeks and also the 12 weeks scan. I am so scared it it will be a missed miscarriage.My symptoms come and go too. Sometimes my bb are sore, other times they are fine. I can have sickness all day and the next day I have nothing. - I think it is perfectly normal.The midwife probably won't use a doppler at your first meeting but you might have an EPU in your area which you may be able to get an early scan at - they are usually quite strict though cos of the NHS budget.

- Friday, 8 Jan Oh Pol *huge cuddly hug* Off course it is natural that you are concerned. All pregnant mother worry. Even more so if you know the risks invovled in early pregnancy, which you do just by being part of IAP. The one unfortunate side effect of being part of this amazing community. I know from experience that very little I say will ease your fears. The only thing that will bring calm is seeing that healthy hb in your womb. I am sorry to say that you will be hard pressed for any public health care person to use a doppler before you are 12 weeks pregnant. I think most recommend only using it after 14 weeks or even later. Is there no clinic in your area where you can plead for them to check if everything is okay? What about the specialist you saw that was going to prescribe the Clomid? Can you not maybe direct a plea at her?All this being said, symptoms coming and going are normal. Some woman start seeing a change in this the closer they get to 12 weeks. It is so different for every person that there is unfortunately no 'How to know guide' for this. I think the fact that you have some symptoms should ease your mind. The pains you felt whilst being active sounds like strain on the muscles of your uterus which has grown now. The fact that it is not persisting for me would make it just normal pregnancy pains. By no means does any of this deminish your fears. I could only recommend to take a deep breath, focus on the positive things and just keep focussing on seeing that perfect baby at your first scan. Good luck *another big hug* - L
