I know I lurk more than anything at the moment...need to update my phone as it hates this site for some reason...and I am just lazy!
Seriously....does pregnancy get any easier?
All I want to do is enjoy it and yet...its all negatives...besides seeing my bump grow and feeling sea sickness movements and seeing him at the scans...he is cute....I love reading to him at night.
But..it has been one thing after another....all my ailments have worsened 10 fold..I am on so much medication I rattle when I walk...no orifice is safe from having having something jammed up it or in it!!
The most stressful thing at the moment is that I have been bleeding for a week.
I ended up at the maternity assesment ward both Easter Sunday and Good Monday..which was hard...especially if any of you know my story and I found out that I had a missed miscarriage 2 years in a row at Easter...so panic was occuring!!
As it turns out my cervix is closed there is no blood there and my sons heart beat is beautiful....so why the blood!!!???
They are weaning off the cyclogest..only have 2 more to take and then thats one orifice thats free....but is the bleeding from the pessaries irratating my walls...and are the fragmin shots making the bleeding worse.
All I want is an answer as to why I am bleeding so I can relax..other than being told..its fine don't worry!!!!
Plus I have Gestational diabetes...found at about 16 weeks...and I am rubbish at finding decent food..so I am basically living off humous and carrots...so much is limited as I have ulcerative colitis too...which means I got into trouble at the diabetes clinic on Tuesday for loosing half a stone...arghhhh!!!!!!
Just give me a sugar and carb free macdonalds please!!!!! LOL
We have come such a long way and my son is the most precious thing to me...already I would do anything to protect him...I just don't know what to do now!!!
anyone else suffering with a bit of bleeding...or having a hard time of it.
I feel awful that I am not loving being pregnant....I feel that I should be lapping up every minute...and feel almost ungrateful.
I know its going to be worth it in the end...but...I swear..I am more drugs than human!!! LOL

Hugs sweetie. I had a rough pregnancy too, well after 24 weeks when the gallstone issues started... It is hard when you have tried for so long to have a baby and you don't want to complain as you know the miracle inside you is so wanted. Pregnancy is hard, if it was easy it would be the men who would go through it The changes your body goes through are miserable and it is ok to complain.
Check out the links on the diabetes board for food ideas, the board itself is dead. I will look up other stuff that you should be able to eat. I lost 40lbs with Robbie and he was healthy, but I am very overweight...

I have been bleeding off and on for 20 weeks 1 day, been on bedrest that long too, in and out of L&D since and see a specialist. I hear ya. It's not easy but we can do it. I def don't envy the diet and wouldn't be as strong as you are trying to abide by it, I'm such a bad eater. I hope it gets easier for you to manage soon. Hugs.
Totally normal to not like pregnancy, I am not dealing with half of your problems and not really enjoying it either. Hopefully the issues will ease up soon and you can just be comfortable for a while.
Love ya bunches! Lil bub is gonna be worth all the trouble. Just stay as healthy as you can for him to make it as healthy as possible. Vent anytime you can (phone issues not withstanding).

Pregnancy is so tough! I'm not suffering from the bleeding, but I do have a nasty case of GD. I was diagnosed at 11 weeks, and it is so frustrating!
I just keep trying to tell myself that it will be all worth it in the end. Thinking of you, and let me know if you need any food ideas.
I would like to say that I do love my new pregnancy figure though ...so thats a bonus.
Any ideas on food would be great...have to mix it in with a ulcerated colitis diet as well...but....Any help would be great!!!
Anything undigestable like sweetcorn and broccoli and things that are high in fibre oh and things with seeds and mushrooms erm...and basically trial and error...if it causes gut pain its gone.
Onions is another bad thing.
Mind you saying all this I do eat some of them but in very small moderation.
