Oh wow lastchance! What injections do you have to do now?

Glg & I have scans on Tuesday, I cant remember anyone else's, they might have even happened already 🙈

My sickness is a lot better but still occasionally sickness & nausea.

How is everyone else getting on??

I have to have Fragmin injections they are similar to the inhixa but seem to have blunter needles and sting more but will speak to the gp and see if they can give me an alternative. Ooo how exciting for your scans I bet you can’t wait, it is another milestone and such a lovely experience. We had our results from the downs tests today and we are ver low risk so that was another hurdle and now have my date for my 20 week scan on the 20th September, it seems to be passing so much quicker now x

Yes they are similar, I don't think there is an exact alternative but perhaps they will switch you to something very similar.

Yes it is exciting, but I'm also very nervous about it.

Wow, congrats on the downs test & getting the 20 week scan date... it certainly is going fast!

Do you have the energy that everyone talks about? I cant wait for that to kick in!

I certainly feel more energetic but get tired very quick I am sleeping loads and then having one or two naps on the sofa in the day, so I don’t think I have gotten to the point of this ‘blooming’ phase yet lol but I am looking forward to it!!
I was very nervous for the scan but as soon as I could see the heart beat I felt more relaxed, but we have all gone through so much to get here that we are bound to be nervous xx

Aww what wonderful news, I’m so glad everything was good, it’s such a beautiful experience isn’t it :-) it made us more eager to know if we have a girl or boy on board.
Hve you told everyone yet or were you waiting for this scan?
Such an exciting time 🥰

I was waiting so an exciting week ahead for me.
Honestly, I saw its little mouth opening & closing.... moving around in all sorts of ways. It is amazing & measuring 1 day over so pretty good.

Aww what a lovely week you will have, it feels so nice once things don’t have to be secret anymore, also my bump definitely has increased in size quite a bit this last 2-3 weeks and I would be unable to cover it up, my normal clothes do not fit properly now, I can get away with some dresses but non of my trousers fit 😂😂x

None of mine have fit me since stims!
Ive ordered some mat jeans & shorts & some work trousers but all the work trousers are disgusting so I need to keep searching.
I have lots of flowy tops though so I can hide my unbuttoned trousers quite easily!

I actually cant wait to be massive 😂 which people keep saying they will remind me of in January!

Has your sickness completely gone now?

Ha ha yes I think having a noticeable bump is nice though think about 24-28 weeks is the idea size as long as it’s not too hot like it has been this last few weeks as it’s been so hot, I have ended up with an awful rash under one boob and struggling to get it to clear up but that’s just because they have gotten so heavy and then it’s been so hot 🙈🙈
Yea I don’t feel sick now unless I eat too much in one go so I try to eat little but very often my craving at the minute is hot and sour soup from the Chinese and cheese, crackers, chillis and picked onions 😩😩
How about you, has your sickness improved and what are you enjoying eating? X

It's better but I'm still sick.
I keep eating mince... so burgers, cottage pie, bolognese ... & also still just carbs, pasta, potatoes, bread etc!

The thought of chicken makes me instantly nauseous so that'll be off the menu for the foreseeable. It's do strange really isn't it?

I have bought a tshirt that says "it's not a food baby" - I might just wear that non stop for the next few weeks 😂

& I am still exhausted as well... really cannot wait for this burst of energy in a few weeks!

It is all so strange I can manage chicken but no other meat at the min, I am cooking full meals for everyone else at the min but I can’t face eating them lol but at least I can cook most of the time now :-)
I think cheese is definitely my fav food at the min ans keep finding myself in the fridge cutting another block to nibble on 🙈🙈 the alt shirt sounds like a good one 😂😂

I've had worrying news today...
My baby has 1/9 chance of Edwards or pataus syndrome (this is normally 1/2000) so I've been offered either a further blood test which is more accurate or an invasive test... I cant decide which to go for.

Also, 1/34 chance of downs but same options for that.

Does anyone have advice?

Bless you, I was so worried waiting for those results, we discussed what we would do if our results came back high and said we would do the further blood test but then felt the risk of miscarriage of the amniocentesis was just too risky for us but it really is a personal decision and how much having a disabled baby would affect your decision to continue with the pregnant. We decided that we would not terminate anyway so felt there was no point on putting the pregnancy at further risk. I feel for you so much, is there any family history which could help you decide? X

For edwards & pataus they mostly become miscarriages or still birth. If they are born alive they could be born with all sorts of thing included no eyes & they can only live up to 1 year (unless it's partial & then they can rarely live past 1 year).
I'm going to have additional blood test tomorrow which gives a 90% outcome, they take about 2 weeks to come back.

Gosh that will be another hard two week wait but I think your right to try and find out more and 90% accuracy will give you a much better idea of what you are dealing with. It seems so cruel doesn’t it to have such a lovely experience in your scan to then have this to deal with, I feel so much for you right now :-( x

For edwards & pataus they mostly become miscarriages or still birth. If they are born alive they could be born with all sorts of thing included no eyes & they can only live up to 1 year (unless it's partial & then they can rarely live past 1 year).
I'm going to have additional blood test tomorrow which gives a 90% outcome, they take about 2 weeks to come back.
Gosh that will be another hard two week wait but I think your right to try and find out more and 90% accuracy will give you a much better idea of what you are dealing with. It seems so cruel doesn’t it to have such a lovely experience in your scan to then have this to deal with, I feel so much for you right now :-( x
Yeah, just keep your fingers crossed for me.
I will indeed have everything crossed for you, hopefully the results will come back quicker than 2 weeks and that the 2 weeks is only a maximum 🤞🤞
Hope gig and amz are ok too as they haven’t been on for a while,
We get the keys for our new house today so this next 2-3 weeks will be quite mad but then we can take our time to get straight and make it a home, I’m sure it won’t be as straight forward as I would like but I’m looking forward to more space x

Hi ladies
Hope your good so sorry I’ve been sooo busy with work just feeling quite stressed at the minute!

Lastchance glad to hear everything is a good with you… we hadn’t heard from you so was getting worried!! But great news about the scan! Shame about the injections but at least it’s good for baby xxx you going to find out what your having?
Congratulations on the new house!! Exciting busy times ahead! Xx

Sam… lovely news about your scan… im sure your baby is perfect xxI’m so sorry you’ve had the scary news about the screening news… I’m praying for the best for you xxx

We had our scan Tuesday… had a mini scare where I was bleeding so totally panicked out but luckily the scan came at the right time. Babies are good.,, just waiting on the screening tests… you got yours back quite quickly Sam x
We are actually measuring abit bigger so I’m 14 weeks on Sunday which was a surprise.
Other than that I thought I would get more checks etc with having twins.., but I guess it depends where you live and your circumstances!!
I’m having a scan at 18 weeks rather than 20 weeks but I don’t need a special consultant or anything so hopefully all good xx


This whole worry lark never ends does it!! I just feel like I’m going to be worrying for 9 months! 🤦🏻‍♀️

Ahh, good to hear from you! Glad everything is going well.
No news is good news... they said to me if its bad they'll ring this week if its good they'll just post the results next week.

I basically have 75% that everything is fine, 22% that the baby has one of those awful conditions & 3% chance its downs instead, so just another awful 2 week wait but with better odds really.

Lastchancesaloon- yes 2 weeks is the max I think. I had the bloods done at 9am this morning after phoning the midwife at 840 ...perks of working at the hospital!
Wow moving day 🥳 congratulations! Make sure you don't do anything too strenuous! Enjoy nesting!!

Good news... I got my results back today, all clear for those awful conditions!!

I am high risk of all sorts though due to low papp, so under consultant care now.

Is everything all OK now? Did they manage to reduce your ovary?

Honestly it was the worst pain ever. Both of ovaries are still very bulky but the only thing they can do is remove them which at this stage is too risky for the babies. Basically when they are too heavy they twist and turn with the weight which causes the pain.

Stayed in hospital for a week on various drugs etc so it had eased and now off sick for two weeks and I hope it just settles down!!

Honestly I thought we had done the hard bit.,, it seems never ending with worry.

How are you?
How’s your belly? Xx
