    Abi's sleepless diary :D - introducing isobel :D

    well, here i am, pregnant. i was expecting a little longer to save up but it only took us one month :S of course i am delighted about that, but our baby is going to arrive just after we manage to pay off our honeymoon so extra cash isn't going to be there... oops.

    i have felt absolutely dire for months. i'm 13 + 2 today a little further on that my original dates say.

    one thing... i keep hearing about this magical second trimester, when you stop feeling so tired, so sick, so achey etc... well all of mine is getting worse. i'm shattered, my sickness is getting worse, my boobs are killing me again... i'm really hoping the symptoms are going for a huge peak before giving up completely, ha.

    can't wait to go and buy something for my baby now. haven't bought a thing. i wanted to wait until after my scan. my scan pic is in my albums. and now i'm working all hours and haven't managed to go anywhere to get anything!! so that's the plan for tomorrow morning. might pop to the white rose centre or something and get something teeny ha.

    am also hoping that seeing our baby onscreen will give my OH a kick up the butt to get rid of all of his stuff. there's so much in such a small house. if we're going to fit a baby and the huge amount of stuff they come with into it as well. well he's going to have to make some sacrifices

    so yes. hello. that's me looking forward to being able to talk about it all now. i've been bursting to blab for ages

    i did poke about on here a wee bit before we tried and before i found out, ha. but it's irrisistable once you know

    my best mate has had a boy and a girl and has all kinds of things to give me, so i won't have to buy much, of course, that doesn't mean that i won't!! ha.

    Awww it's fab to know that your pregnancy is going well even if you're feeling a bit naff right now.
    Believe me, you'd be worrying if you weren't feeling sick and just felt normal. I've had that feeling normal feeling and I panicked so much but luckily baby is OK.
    I wondered if you were actually pregnant as I'd seen someone with the identical name on another forum I'm on but it wasn't my place to pry so said nothing lol.
    When is your 20 week scan then and are you going to find out what you're having or have a surprise? xxx

    Became a mummy to my little boy Ethan on 24th May 2010. Happier than words can say.

    hi guys. well i realised i started this and then haven't written in it, ha.

    yeah, i figured you'd all know

    well, my 20 week scan is on the 6th january and yes, i will be finding out what we're having. i am not a massive fan of yellow and want to be able to buy lots of fab things. saying that, i'm not a massive fan of blue or pink either.. ha.

    i am still feeling naff, although the stretches of feeling ok are getting longer, even if the sudden lapses into nastiness are worse than ever. so i think i'm getting there. my tummy is getting more solid, but only on the left hand side, where i'm getting all my crampy pains, so i'm guessing that baby is nestled in over there. hopefully they'll shift over eventually or i'm going to have a very wonky pregnancy :S

    well, i have cramps again. this little blighter is really going for broke!! ha. my symptoms seemed to be easing a few weeks ago but they are all back with a vengeance. my boobs hurt. i wake myself up in the middle of the night when i roll onto my front, i feel so sick, i'm so unbelievably tired. and to top it all off i really REALLY want a veggi delight sarnie from subway but as i'm the only IT support here i daren't really walk to the nearest subway because you can guarantee that something terrible would happen and it would take be about 15 minutes to get back...

    so OH has said we can call in on the way home and get me one then if i still want one, ha. at least it's something with veg in it. i feel like i haven't had a nutrient in some time. things keep tasting like dog breath even tomatoes which i couldn't get enough of initially. tis poopy

    pregnacare makes me sick so i had to give up taking them all the time. i was terrible at remembering my folic acid. so i'm really hoping everything is ok there. have stopped taking it now though.

    am starting slimming world once i stop feeling so vile. put it this way. it will make me eat far more healthily than i otherwise would do, so i'm going to go for it. i dread putting on about five stones and having to undo all that, plus all the weight i already gained before getting preggers and now have to lose so that's the plan. we'll see how it goes. even if i end up the same weight as when i started it will be a good thing, ha.

    howdy

    well this morning i can feel a vibration in my lower tummy. it feels like a little buzzer keeps going off. is it possible that it's my baby? i'm only 14 weeks though, so i wasn't expecting anything yet. but i can't work out what else it could be. whether i'm sitting or walking aorund i can feel these on off vibration feelings in my lower tummy. and it's not like anything i ever felt before.

    so for those of you that know what it feels like... could it be?

    well from what people said on another forum i'm on it could have been, however i haven't felt it since, so either i was imagining it for an entire day, my insides spontaneously vibrate now, or it was a fluke

    and i have just been sick at work. which was rather unpleasant. am going to try and have brekkie now. thankfully i'd only had a cuppa...

    am really impatient to get to my next mw appointment now so i can hear the baby's heartbeat again, but it's over two weeks away

    It does sound like it could be some sort of movement Abz. With my 1st I remember thinking it felt like bubbles in my tummy.

    2 weeks will pass quickly and then you can hear the heartbeat again. Its rubbish your still feeling sick though. Thankfully I've not had any morning sickness, just the odd feeling of nausea.

    i'm so jealous!! ha. although i didn't start actually being sick properly until later on, i'm sick more frequently these days, so it may catch you up... ha. sorry. not what you want to hear is it?

    i hope two weeks pass fast because i'm starting to worry again, even though i know there's nothing to worry about, but i want to know that mini michaelis is doing ok : )
