Hi pregnantgem, I'm 6 weeks today, I can't wait for my early scan to give some reassurance, I have one on 11th Aug. I'm feeling a bit queasy so far but nothing too major. I had nausea so much on last pregnancy so it may kick in!

Hi there :) you calculate how far you are by first day of your last period and count the weeks from that day . I can't advise on mulligan, I'm going the coombe and I did on my first baby

I'm only 7 weeks on Monday and my stomach looks 4 months!!! Honestly it's unreal , my dh thinks it's twins and I'm kinda thinking there could be a chance, all my jeans are too tight. I've been eating normal , prob even less as I've been a little nauseous so can't be food, it's just bloating but my god i can imagine what I'll be like in few weeks and how I'll hide it, might have to spill the beans earlier!!!

Hey all,

Bit late jumping on here. 11 weeks today with #2. Our rainbow baby after a loss in May! Came as a huge surprise as we conceived without any help. Had an early scan at 6wks1day and saw heartbeat. 12 weeks scan is 24th Aug. Won't come quick enough!! Already have a small bump and feels hard low down in my abdomen if I lie down flat :D

I'm 11weeks since yesterday on #3. PHDmammy my scan will be the 25th. It's my first scan as I didn't have any early scans so it can't come quick enough.

Gem, my own personal preference is public. I did consider SP and private but to be honest. I found it hard to get my head around paying for a bed that I wasn't gaurenteed. Also when private it seems like every little thing you are charged for. Where in public I didn't pay a penny, I went public on both my pervious pregnancies and had complications on both. On #1 my complications were in the third trimester and on #2 my complications were in labour but I received exactly the same care as a private patient. If your an emergency your an emergency they don't prioritise based on who's paying and who's not.
Ok the downside of public is obviously the wait times at appointments but the longest I've ever waited is 4hrs for first appointment however I have read that the wait times have been improved since my last pregnancy and you can be in and out in 90mins.
The other downside to public is sharing a room but to be fair your only their for 2/3 nights if even. Your not always in a 10bed room with every bed occupied. Once I was in a four bed with only 3 beds occupied. TBH for me I actually enjoyed the company, chatting to other mums who were in the same boat as me. The excitement as you seen each one have their baby.

Anyway, that's my own person experience I obviously can't comment on SP or Private and someone else might come back with a completely different experience of public.

Hope that helps

I went public in the coombe and found the care great, I needed extra care and visits and I got it and paid nothing extra. I'm going public again this time round. I agree with mrscc that sharing a room was nice to chat to others but quite noisy at times when you wanted to sleep that was the only thing

Went public in GUH with my first and will go public again even though HI covers most of it private. Public was fantastic and has the option of going with the midwives clinic. I find the midwives so much better than the consultants and much more approachable.

Had a tough labour and consultant and paed dr were called in. Everyone was fantastic. Shared a 6 bed ward but hardly noticed. I agree the company and the comings and goings is nice. Not guaranteed a private room anyway as they reserve these for deliveries with complications e.g. post delivery infection.

Seems like everyone is on same wave length re public ! My thinking is if you need special care you will get it, I can't afford to go private so if i could maybe I would but public care is defo very good

Thanks everyone for the reply!!! its really going to make me think about going public seems to be the way to go - id never consider private crazy prises but suppose the temptation is there for semi as i have health insurance through work and by the looks id only end up paying about 400 in total after im refunded so seemed tempting. But gona think long and hard about it as public seems just as good! so again thanks to everyone!!!!


On another note - how is everyone feeling? im getting my first 12wk scan on Saturday and i cannot wait!!! but is anyone feeling like uncomfortable??? i feel like my nausea is getting worse and not better? plus im not sleeping hence being up now at 1.30am just broken sleep mostly because i just feel uncomfortable around the tummy area - feels stupid saying it because i only have a little bump!!! im thinking if im feeling like this at 12wks how the hell am i going to feel in another 3/4/5 months :-(

Hi ladies.
Hope you don't mind me joining as I am not due until April 18. Didn't see one for April but just needed a couple of opinions. I'm on my second pregnancy I'm 5 weeks and the last week I've had very very mild cramping everyday. Only part of the day, anyone have this?
Also I've a hens in 4 weeks abroad and I really don't know if I should go or not help!! Thanks girls
