Haven't been on here in ages, but had to come say YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!! I don't think anyone could be more excited for you, well except you maybe.. Love you girlie!!!
Ooooh Liz what a beautiful pic :)
That was 3 weeks ago, how are you feeling right now?
Hey Liz! How are you doing these days!
I'm curious too!! :)
Did you get a doppler to hear in there?
Can I just say that I love stalking your ticker?? :D
Pretty sure that Liz is having issues with logging in but on FB she is doing well.
I do have major issues with the site.
I think basically I need to plug my phone in and update it through the computer to get that 105S or whatever it is...just need to pull my finger out and do it!!
Until then I can look at posts on my phone...kind of...and I seem to be able to add a new thread with a pic for some reason...but it just blanks out on me....other than that I come on to the main computer...but it takes soooooo long to get a page up and its cold here...so I tend to run on if I see a thread that has one of my ladies concerned over something...like Susans horrid doctor...but...
I will do better....promise!! I hope!!
So the last few weeks have been a bit of a rollercoaster..not all baby related...but maybe indirectly!!
Have had a stinking cold which had me laid up in bed feeling very sorry for myself!!
All I wanted was a blooming lemsip but no!!
One thing I had no idea about was how our immune system takes a major nosedive when pregnant,,,so this cold knocked me for six!!!!
On top of it my colitis flared up so badly that I swear I was loosing a pint of blood everytime I parped!!
Was very worrying!!
Saw the doc and she took bloods and did blood pressure and told me that I was not going back to work until my blood tests came back!
Luckily they weren't too bad...my haemo whatever levels had dropped but luckily my iron and everything else still seemed okay so I wasn't loosing a dangerous amount of blood!
Sadly though I no have Pentasa to shove up my bum every night....really??...so basically my orfices are full of meds!!!
Had more bloods done on Monday...Doc was a bit concerned as I said I had been so constipated that I couldn't even fart on the Monday and when I finally had a pooh it was black!!
She was like oh buggar!!! I need to look up your bum!
I was like but I haven't washed it...
She said I need to see what colour the left over are!
I said GROSS!!!!
Then I said...okay...you find me my spacemans heartbeat and you can do what you like!!
She said Deal!!
So she found me a gorgeous heartbeat of 142 and showed me that what I have been hearing with my doppler was actually my own heartbeat!!
My doppler is rather pants!!
It was amazing to hear!!!!
And so noticeable different to what I had been hearing!!
Anyway then she did the finger test and luckily it was brown so not dodgy blood which is a relief!!
But I had more bloods done as she still thought I would be going off to hospital!
She rang the next day which gave me huge panics...and yes my levels have dropped again but luckily only minimally so she rang the hospital and they said to just repeat the bloods this Monday coming and if they have dropped again I am off to hospital for investigations...but hopefully it will be okay.
I have had a little bum blood but not a lot so...fingers crossed!!!
On top of all this I had an early Glucose test due to me have Gestational diabetes at 8 weeks on a previous pregnancy and low and behold I have gestatational diabetes again!!
On to good stuff....I have a fetal medicine scan on Tuesday at 18 weeks!!...so MIL is coming and we hope to get a gender!!!
Still nervous as you can all imagine!!
I am not sure if I feel movement yet or not....if I do its so mild that I still think it might be gas...roll on when there is a proper movement!!!
So...thats about it really!!
All in a nutshell!!!!
Getting fat...although M says I look no dofferent to before I lost my weight....and likes to call me fat guts alot!!....he doesn't get it...lol!!!
MIL knocked yesterday with a huge bunch of flowers for me for Mothers Day which is tomorrow here...I was so chuffed!!
there we go!!!
I love you all
And hope you are all okay!!!
Margerets right....its easier for me on facebook...although M hates me writing anything baby related...but I still slip in something so if you want to add me feel free....either pm me and I'll give you me link or if you're friends with Margeret on there or anyone else than find me through their friends!!
Why does everything I post go double now???? GRRRRRR
I am so very sorry you've been dealing with all the health issues hun! Dang colitis and colds!! *HUGS* Sounds like you're doing well though and I hope that tomorrows bloodwork comes back okay for you. Rest up as much as you can. :) Happy Mother's Day!!! The flowers are beautiful your MIL sent you! That was very sweet of her! And all the best at your next scan!!! I am just so thrilled for you and can't wait to find out the gender of your little one! :D
Off to docs in a bit....but...just had to say...OMFG!!!!!! I just looked at my ticker and realised in 2 weeks I will be half way though!!!
Who would have ever thought it!!!!!!!
