Update 18 weeks

Hi everyone I hope you are all hanging in there and staying strong whatever stage of this journey you are on .i had a check up appointment today ,all is going well with the little one. I have lost weight which my doctor is worried about. But the little one is quite big so they said at 220g.so I have to up my starch intake.

I thought i was 17 weeks but turns out it all changes depending on how the baby grows I assume .iv been overwhelmed the past month coz i had a terrible flu and thrush ,its great to know that all is ok.

I still sleep alot especially after work which is ok.I still have to pinch myself to make sure its really happening. 2017 was the hardest year of my life and I'm just glad I'm here still standing.anxious and overwhelmed but still standing.

We couldnt get a pic coz our little one couldn't stay still.such a handful already 😂

Thank you all for sharing your stories. It's what gives me hope and courage to carry on coz this ttc business really ain't for the faint hearted. Every day you get up to face the day is a victory .

Let's keep fighting, praying and hoping for our miracles .

Thinking of you all.xx

Congratulations, and I’m glad that all continues to go well.

I’m at 15.5 weeks and have just gotten the cold. Feel achy and really lousy, but only have a mild temperature so hoping not flu. Reassuring you can have these issues and still have a little blip foolin around inside.

I have a consultant’s appt next week where I believe they will check the heart to see t’s still alive and kicking.

You said you had lost weight, but I’m curious, are you showing yet? I seem to have developed a paunch over the weekend. Hoping it’s baby not fat related! Been scared to go near the scales!

Argg my flu was terrible and i had to stick to garlic ,ginger and honey and lots of fluids. it got better after some days. Then i got the thrush. 😰I got a cream for it.

Iv got a bit of a bump but most people just think Iv gained weight.i haven't really announced my pregnancy to everyone. Only a few select close people know.

Good luck with your appointment.keep us updated.
