3rd pregnancy


So far my anxiety in this third pregnancy is so much better than my second.

I had an early scan today and I saw a heartbeat. They put my dates back by a week but I don’t mind.

5 weeks to go until 12 week scan and mood is already better than my last pregnancy maybe because I know this will probably be my last pregnancy and will be the last time I have to cope with gestational diabetes and the worry of whether I’ll get psychosis .

Things are looking better I’m on a waiting list for emdr therapy for ptsd and can have that after the baby is here

Hi Becciandbump

I’m glad to hear things are going well so far :) How lovely that you saw a heartbeat already :)

Look after yourself and keep us posted.

Best wishes

Wishing you well dearest Becciandbump.

Congratulation,- did not know you were pregnant :-)


Congratulations 🎈 on baby number 3 ❤️❤️❤️ I’m home from work due to covid 19 scares - I’m a teacher- and I joke to my partner that 9 months from now there will be a lot of babies 👶🏻 I think everyone here has tons of anxiety and we had best just relax, take precautions, but relax and enjoy life ❤️ Wishing you a happy 3rd pregnancy, easy delivery, and everything positive afterwards

I’m in self isolation due to a fever (which I don’t think was covid 19 but can’t be certain) on Saturday. I work with vulnerable elderly so have had to self isolate due to the fever. I’m ok now but my insulin has just had to be upped as my number went upped with being unwell

Hi Becciandbump I'm really sorry to hear that. I'm glad you are are OK now and feeling better. The self isolation must be hard, I hope you're managing to connect with people virtually on phone / video call?

Take care, know you can write here whenever you want to!
