just wondered who on here is pregnant? I am due to have another little boy on 21st september and we have decided to call him Kieron.
It has had it's ups and downs this pregnancy which started with a nuchal scan giving me a 1 in 33 risk of this baby having DS which scared me to death. We decided to have a CVS so we could prepare as with cameron i was given a 1 in 11000 risk and was completely unaware of his DS even after 2 anomaly scans nothing was picked up! Waiting for the CVS results was shear hell I was in a terrible state 3 days after the CVS they gave me to quick result which was all clear but had to wait for the second results but finally the letter came in the post and concluded that baby had no chromosone problems.
you would think that would enable me to enjoy this pregnancy more wouldn't you but i had to wait for the 22 week scan to get the all clear on spina bifida as i lost a baby with that condition in2001 at nearly 24 weeks. so we have the scan and it is all clear YAY!!!!!!!! then i get diagnoised with SPD and am in agony with my pelvis and lower back I really cant wait until this little one is born so i can be normal again! or as normal as i ever will be ;D
Hopefully everything will go fine for us all, I am cooking baby number 4 too pregnancy number7 though, the midwife always gives me funny looks when i am asked what number pregnancy i am on! I have to quickly add that I only have 3 with me and this one on the way.
was you worried about getting pg again after having a child with down's??? sorry for asking but haven't been able to ask anyone about this?
I was soooooo broody after having Holly but OMG I was scared of having another. It took me 12 months to decide to try again. I was fine right up until I got the positive result on the PG test... LOL
Then I paniced... Tee hee. I was like "OMG OMG OMG What have I done, what if it happens again" after it had sunk in a little I was more relaxed and thought well if it does happen again we will deal with it.
From that point on I have been fairly relaxed Until its time to give birth... LOL as you know coming up to number 4 you know how much it bloody hurts... PMSL
Ha ha ha I had a bad birth with my first daughter 17 years ago, but i was only 17 when i had her and she was 4 weeks premature. she also had the cord wrapped round her neck twice but was only 5Ibs 13ozs but measured 52cms.
Then i lost a baby with spina bifida my waters broke at 23 +4 weeks. obviously the birth was easy as she was so small.
then I had my son Callum! Oh my god that was my worse ever and i hope i never reapeat that one. i had a stop start labour then they broke my waters at 5 cms and i had one long contraction for an hour and 45 minutes. he also weighed 8Ibs 6ozs and had a large head.
Cameron was the easiest birth and as far as the pain of labour goes was the most pleasurable one he weighed 7Ibs and it was bliss but i have been wracking my brain trying to figure out what i did differently and i am terrified of having a repeat of DS 1........ only 12 and a half weeks to go eeeeeeekkkkkkkk!!!!
All mine have been boring as the MW's put it... LOL
DS1 is 8 and his labour although it was my 1st wasn't too bad, I went in about 2 am, established labour at 8.30, Born just after 1pm and home for 6
DS2 was home birth which was GREAT. And soooooo easy, just with gas and air
Holly I had to be induced because she stopped growing (Or so they thought) 37 weeks, she weighed 5lb 10oz and was 46 cms. Her heart rate dropped so had an assisted delivery, nice and quick though. Only laboured 45 mins... LOL
This one opting for home birth again
I felt Holly's was very different, more relaxed I think. I knew more of what was going to happen and even though it wasn't the birth I had planned it went really well
I'm due babies 2 and 3 on 15th August, due date was the 4th September but as it's twins i have to have a c-section a 37 weeks.
We also had the nuchal scan which gave us odds of 1 in 750 for both babies and decided against any other tests. Didn't have any tests with Brodie so not really got anything to compare the odds to so like Rilith we'll just wait and see what happens.
OK Rilly and Debie, enough of this whole swapping labour stories and hoq much it hurt... this is my first and I'm quite happy for her to stay right where she is thank you very much! Am due the 28th September Debbie hun so not far behind you! I hate this bit where you have no scans or appointments for a while and are left worrying whether everything is ok, it seems like an age since my 20 week scan now! I seriously don't want to get my head around this whole giving birth thing and am just going to carry on in blissful ignorance with the knowledge that she will have to come out somehow! Yikes!!! Take care you lovely ladies with bumps. Lucy xxx
Just to butt in and cheer Odiness up - Caleb was my first and weighed 7lb2 so was pretty average size. I was only in labour for 4 ish hours and only needed gas and air, it did hurt but was wierd sort of hard work muscle pain - sort of quite exciting and invigorating - like a huge work out! You'll be fine - heck, I'd do it again some day!!)
