decorating nursery at the moment so thats keeping my husband busy, circus theme at mothercare, wonder if any one else has started? hope everyone is well
Hi Ladies - I am finding this pregnancy much harder than the first - I'm just knackered all the time! Comes from running round after a 23mth toddler I suppose.
Sickness has finally gone and I'm eating much better. Mummy2bn2 - I have had the most awful constipation too - but am taking Fybogel every evening now and that has helped enormously (my mum gets it on prescription so haven't had to buy it!!). Nic45 I had the pubic bone thing too which surprised me so early on, but it seems to have eased off a little. The only thing that really hurts is when I pull my wellies off on the doorstep - ouch in that area!!
Have got a nice bump now and feeling movements every day, though quite sporadic, but I guess baby still has lots of room to move about and hide yet. Got my 20wk scan a week on Friday - can't wait.
For those with other children, when did you tell them about baby? I still feel ours is a little young to understand but then she understands everything you say so I don't know why I should think that!!
Hello ladies I'm 18+4 today, almost half way through pregnancy, can't believe it! Sorry for those with back pain.. I've been having constipation too, quite painful, urgh.. Work makes me so exhausted that I had to leave earlier a couple of times because of being dizzy, faint and shaking all over. I hope I won't have to go off sick, spoke to my manager to spread shifts more, as she had been giving me too much despite our previous discussions..
All in all the baby's healthy, bump is growing, I can feel the kicks every day and they were even strong enough for my hubby to feel them as well Can't wait for 20 week scan on 21st! xxxx
jollyJoey, you were saying feeling faint, dizzy shaking all over, this is very common, I had this at work once, did a blood sugar and it was 3.6(im a nurse) if this happens to you again have something sugarey and sit down, should change after 10-15 minutes. I now keep dextrose tablets in my pocket, failing that, refreshers!
