Welcome back Rosie , I hope you are feeling better & best of luck with your scan, oh Dotty you poor thing must be a nightmare, when do you fly home ?
I’m 14 weeks Saturday, and think I have pregnancy insomnia, not sleeping at all, wake at 1am and that’s me until 6am when it’s nearly time to get up,

Jess I downloaded an app that plays different sounds, like running water, the ocean, rain against a window, didnt think much of it but gave it a try and it helped me get off to sleep and I actually got a good night, maybe also try a warm bath with some Epsom salts to relax your muscles and that night help
Also if you can get to one, lush sell a sleepy cream, I used it on my younger son, it's like a lavender moisturizer that u can use all over ur body but it smells amazing and it helped me a bit when i was very sick once and couldn't stay asleep

Thanks everyone for the tips, tried an app Rosie & slept well last night, how is everyone doing? I’m 14 +1 today, lots of cramps today thinking it’s just stretching, have an ante natal app tomorrow and only in work until wed then on 2 weeks hold, I can’t wait I need the break!
Dotty how are you feeling ?

Glad you got some sleep Jess hopefully it will get better for you. I've had the cramps too, it's everything stretching and growing. Enjoy the 2 weeka holidays well needed at this time.
I've been in the coombe over the weekend, can't shift this uti. On 3rd lot of antibiotics now so hopefully this will do it. Exhausted from it all. But had scans and baby is all good, he/she was wriggling away on Sat. I'm 15+5 today.

Awe that’s fab About scan Dotty, sorry to hear your still not feeling well, hope this dose of tablets helps to shift it,
I had another ante natal app today, all is good . Even got a little scan which I wasn’t expecting but they scanned me to check the HB rather than using the Doppler, I didn’t complain!! Baby was jumping around the place too!
I’m back again in 2 weeks, they seem to be keeping a close eye on me I would say due to my history of So many mmc, I’m not complaining but though as it gives me good reassurance
Hope you feel better soon x

It's so lovely to see them wriggling around isn't it Jess, it's great they are keeping such a close eye on you. Hopefully it's helping you relax a bit? How is the sleeping going? Think I'm feeling a bit better this afternoon so fingers crossed I'm on the mend.

It sure does help you to relax Dotty,
Sleep still isn’t great some nights good but last night I only got 3 hours but I might have been subconsciously anxious about today , I ordered a pregnancy pillow on amazon and it arrived today so hope that helps!!
So glad to hear your feeling better

What kind of pillow did u get? Is it the long one? Had been thinking of getting one myself, I think in a few weeks I'll need a bit of extra support at night. I still feel weird about buying baby stuff tho it's strange. I did get some maternity clothes which I love. Hopefully the pillow helps u get comfy, it's an adjustment to not worry all the time aswell, after so long were programmed to be stressing about something, so it's probably hard for your brain to switch off a bit.

Yes I got one of the long ones Dotty, I’ll let you know after tonight how it goes!!
Oh I know it’s a constant worry about one thing or another , the doc said to me today & it’s so true that i probably won’t relax until I have my baby in my arms

Hi ladies, I got the long pillow - its brilliant. And one of the V shaped pillows!The physio also recommended a single duvet underneath you too in bed, it’s the business! The bed is like a fort, but it’s definately a big help!

Hi Dreambaby & welcome, I think I remember you from some of the trains over the years!
Congrats on your pregnancy, I’m due the 14th I’d December so we are close, how have you been keeping?
Dotty glad to hear you are feeling better , my sickness has definitely eased too, I have the odd day of nausea but its mostly just heartburn now!! The pillow is a life saver, I woke twice last night but that was to use the loo & I went back to sleep after

Thanks girls. So happy to be finally here. I’m 15 w 1 and I got my first poking/kicking sensation today. I was walking to my car and got 3/4 pokes low down. Feeling good now, the tiredness was unreal for first 12 weeks and got headaches. I had nausea but not morning sickness thank god. I’m buying few bits of maternity clothes but nothing baby related. DH is even more cautious than me and doesn’t want us to get anything until after 20 weeks scan. Emilylou, Jess, so happy to see you here too. It has been quite the journey but we made it :-)

Emilylou delighted that all is going well for you. Must have been such a worrying time. I'm the same as you and don't really want to start buying anyrhing yet I feel it would jinx it or something. Definitely going to get a pregnancy pillow as a bit sore in the mornings now and it's hard to get comfy. Still think I look more fat than bump tho. Dream your so lucky to have felt kicks. I've had the odd twinge but think that's growing pains rather than anything else. My hips get sore too sometimes. Not for very long but you can feel it.
