Hey ladies 👋

Lucky I was well impressed with primark maternity/nursing bras. They were in a 2 pack for £10 I think, and sizes were very accurate (for a change!) so I went back & got another pack of 2 in different colours. They are so comfy I love them.

Lovely name too & sounds lovely, good that your all planned out.
We’ve got a list for boys and girls names but keep adding some to them and deleting some off haha also finding that part hard to agree on any 😂🤦🏻‍♀️ So I’m going to leave it now until we know if it’s boy or girl and hopefully that makes it a little easier (wishing)

Haven’t really thought of labour/birth plan yet as I really want a water birth but I’ve got to wait and see how this pregnancy goes (after having 1st at 33+4weeks) and I’m high risk with this baby too, but all being well they may let me 🤞🏼 If not it will be normal natural labour with just bath/water as pain relief for me. (Again - wishing haha)

Aww patience what’s your due date again?? My 20 week scan is the 18th feb and I’ll be 21 weeks something then. My due date is 28th June. We must be close together? Eeeeek exciting for your gender scan weds too!! What are you hoping for? Obviously happy with any but do you have a preference?
I’m so adamant I’m having another girl and I don’t know why, I’ve just got such a strong feeling, I’ll be very shocked if it’s not!!
Haha will defo let you guys know tmo 💗💙😬

Midwife went great today, she said such a strong heartbeat for 16 weeks so that’s all good. Baby is lying very low and uterus has moved high up too. Obs and urine all fine too. I’ve got a transvaginal scan booked for tmo afternoon at hospital too after having half my cervix removed previously, then need to check length of my cervix and possible have a stitch put in to prevent me from labouring early. So will know about that after tmo afternoon too. Kind of hoping they do do the stitch for peace of mind for me and hubby as then we will know baby won’t come before 36 weeks and will be safer all round I think.

Gender scan is at 10am 😬😬😬💙💗💙💗💙💗 xx

Ooh I will have to remember about primark bras when my boobs eventually catch up. 😂

No gender scan on weds for me Steph just midwife appointment, baby brain?! 😂 we defo not finding out. Would love a girl, instinct says girl but could just be wishful thinking 🤞 at least I have all boys stuff if it is a boy. Either way I will be happy and my family will finally be complete.

Due date is 1 July so yes Steph we are very close. I had my boys 3 days and 4 days early last time so not expecting to get to due date.

Hope you get the stitch and then like you say you can relax a bit. Must have been stressful giving birth at 33 weeks last time, hopefully you will have an easier ride this time.

Hey lucky, try not to stress, I know it’s easier said then done.

Your being monitored extra so that is the main thing, it would be worse if they weren’t constantly checking you.

Very upsetting to hear people losing their babies but try to focus on the statistics that most people have a healthy baby at the end of the day. I think we have been through so much to get these babies that it is so hard to relax.I am definitely more worried this time then I have been with my other pregnancies, I think that’s normal.

I definitely don’t have a bump, just look fat and have had a few flutterings but definitely nothing major. I am in the same boat as you. Everyday I will my bump to grow more!

I had midwife appointment today and heard baby’s heartbeat which was reassuring, urine was fine. Seems like ages till 20 weeks scan but I just need to trust my body and my baby to do what it needs to do.

Stay strong lucky, you’ve got this x😘

Hey lucky,

All sounds positive. I think they only change your due date based on scans not just size of bump. Scan is the most accurate measurement. Bump may be measuring ahead but some people have Small bumps some v large.

I am still desperately waiting for mine to grow more and to feel movements!

Glad baby Lincoln is keeping you on your toes! Still seems like bloody ages until next scan for me (3 weeks today) 😬

Luckybabe I have a lot of lazy boys in this house so I feel
Your pain 😂

Glad it went well.

Yes like you just holding out for 20 week scan.

Not really feeling any movements which is worrying me but could be down to babies position.

Roll on scan which thankfully I will have bang on 20 weeks on 12 feb x
