  • Hi I'm due late February but I haven't had any bleeding up to Now. I'm sorry you keep having bleeds, it must be stressful

    Everything is really daunting and on top of that, I don't feel pregnant. Does anyone else feel this way?

    Good luck with everything!

  • I don't feel pregnant, been told I have a huge bump for 20 weeks though!

  • Yes

    Feeling normal and is due mid February

  • I'm due at the start of March. I had one incident of bleeding at 12 weeks (the very day after my nuchal scan and when I thought I could finally start to tell people ...). Subsequent scans have shown all is okay - they think it was something called a subchorionic haematoma. It hasn't happened again but I haven't really relaxed since (to be fair, this being an IVF pregnant I wasn't exactly relaxed before, either!). I can only imagine how stressful and scary it must be to have to deal with a lot of bleeding in pregnancy.

  • Very sressful! I don't cope well with stress either! I'm glad everything is okay for you in your pregnancy! You must be over the moon!

  • Totally over the moon! It's our first too. I just want time to hurry up now - March seems so far away!!

  • I'm due 9th Feb first baby too. I struggled a lot with bleeding from 6-10 weeks but thankfully all ok now xx

  • I'm due Feb 9th 2018 no bleeding in the beginning I had cramps thought I was coming on but never did! Cramps stopped very early! I wish you well moving forward! 💞

  • Jazzy313 I need your help

  • how can I help ?

  • help me

  • I'm not due until 1/4/18 but I have had quite a bit of bleeding, all scans show everything is fine and growing well. Midwifes think its an irritated cervix so I'm just trying to be careful.

  • That's what midwives have said to me but they can't quite give me a proper explanation. The last 3 weeks without fail on a Monday morning it's happened.

  • Im due feb 2018! Im also 19 and a half weeks at the moment and im also a first time mum! Im so happy to hear that there someone out there who is at the same stage as me :') and no i havent bled at all but i know one of my friends did and she was fine and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl about a month ago, if your not sure just go and speak to the midwife or also the doctor :) good luck!

  • Aww! How have you been finding the pregnancy in general? Do you get much backache?

    I'm glad your friend is okay and her baby is too!

  • Its honestly been a breeze so far but now im 22 weeks and i feel irritable sometimes, also i cant sleep as well anymore, vivid dreams are also in the cocktail.. no back aches yet but im sure they will kick in once the baby is a little bigger..

  • I'm due in Feb for the first time! Had some bleeding at 9th week and I was devastated because a year ago it ended up in miscarriage.... But next week I have a scan and I hope to find out boy or a girl :)

  • Aww! I hope your scan goes well for you! I found out this week what i was having as they were scanning me in hospital because of the bleeding. Officially got my 20 week scan on Tuesday so I'm just praying she's growing fine and there isn't anything wrong!

  • Bleeding is so stressful!! I wish all the best for you and your baby girl inside you :)

  • Hey, I'm also due in February 2018 and had terrible anxiety. Sometimes I just wake up anxious and it carries on throughout the day. All the stress and tension make my bump hurt. I have had two missed miscarriages in the first trimester . One in 2015 and 2016 and I'm paranoid about everything and worrying that something might go wrong or that my anxiety and stress alone might cause harm:(

  • Oh honey! That must be awful for you! Your in the second trimester now though and ive been told that it's rare for anything to happen this late on... I hope everything is okay.

    It's hard to deal with anxiety when your growing another human!

    Don't be afraid to talk about it though! I find talking helps me! X

  • Thanks so much hannkin. Really appreciate the kind words. I must say the health care I receive is amazing. I get the scans every couple of weeks but every pain I feel really freaks me out. I'm a super anxious person anyway and my stress levels have been through the roof. Work doesn't help. How are you managing? Xx

  • Hi, I'm due Feb with my first although I have not experienced any bleeding. I think the thing is to seek help at any stage if you feel unsure about anything unusual happening to your body. I wouldn't have any issues phoning triage/maternity unit to get advice or to seek medical help. You've got to feel confident that everything is ok for you and your baby.

    Join up to a variety of websites and download a couple of apps like Bounty, Emma's Diary and Cow & Gate etc as they do give lots of advice and freebies to help out at every stage. You definitely need to be able to talk about any issue (and also the good bits!) so I'm sure we'll all be delighted to help you through this. After all, we are all going through the same thing and Feb isn't too far away.

    Take care and say hi at anytime.

  • Yeah I definitely second getting apps and reading good websites. I haven't seen a doctor since I told them I became pregnant, and I've seen my midwife twice.

    I know they say you can always contact them if you have any concerns, but I don't actually feel there's that much routine guidance and support even if it's your first pregnancy. I think it's really easy to worry your head off especially in the early stages, which can overshadow the excitement/joy.

    I haven't told a lot of people I'm pregnant (including family) because 1) I don't feel pregnant 2) to avoid people's judgements and negativity (my partner and I are different ethnicities and religions). 3) it all just doesn't feel real or certain.

    Maybe after the anomaly scan I'll start telling people 🤔🙄😕. If I had bleeding I think it would make me even more private.

  • P.s. I know what you mean about not feeling pregnant. My first scan was bizarre as I couldn't believe that the baby was inside me! I'm only just starting to show although most people can't see it yet. I'm still able to fit in all my trousers with the help of a belly belt. I've also purchased a couple of tops the next size up as maternity clothing is still too big for me.

    As for your ethnic/religious differences... for me I wouldn't listen to anyone with prejudices but I know that's easier said than done. I'm an older mum (39 and am referred to as a geriatric mum!!!) and am getting a little stick for that but doing my best to shrug it off.

    We shall both have beautiful babies that will be looked and looked after. That's the most important thing.

  • Hi

    I am 15 weeks and am massive! I was only 9stone 8lbs before I got pregnant. I cant get into any of my trousers or jeans and am living in leggings. I have just ordered some maternity jeans from Mothercare this weekend and had to buy new bras this week too! I dont mind but honestly did think it would be a while before I got this big hehe!!xx

  • It's mainly his family who refuse to acknowledge me let alone accept me. Some of them are quite racist and the others are afraid of being ostracised for sticking up for us.

    It's all just doing my head in now especially as I'm pregnant.

    And you're not old!! My mum was 40 when she had me. She only had two children so there's a 15 year age gap between my sister and I (I'm the younger one).

  • I know how that feels we know the sex now and nothing is on Facebook, it's really strange bumping into friends I haven't seen for a while and then seeing the excitement on their faces when they see the bump!

    I hope everything goes okay with your scan!

  • Thankyou!

    I always ring them but because it's a regular occurrence I feel like a nuisance now!

    I've signed up to Emmas diary and bounty... not heard of any others though!

  • A lot of the supermarkets do online baby clubs too.

  • Oh really I didn't know this! I'll have to search online!

  • I only visited my GP when I first found out I was pregnant as I didn't know what the protocol was. It was them that referred me to the Midwife.

    I have a few health issues so have them watching me closely although only extra appointments for the health issues.

    Thankfully, I'm passed the tired phase although I believe it may come back in the 3rd trimester. I'm trying to maintain some sort of fitness by walking my dog and swimming once or twice per week when possible.

    Yes, there isn't a great deal of information but it's out there if you look for it. It greatly depends on the area you live in. At the moment, I feel very lucky with the support I have been given. Long may it continue.

    Well, you take care and be sure to bring up any issue, big or small, at your forth coming appointments or ensure you seek help if something is worrying you.

  • Hello there, I'm due 28th march . I haven't had any bleeding or anything at the moment but I'm happy to chat when ever . Xx

  • Aww your just behind me then! I'm due 2nd Feb! How are you feeling about the whole pregnancy?

    It's nice to be able to talk to others who are also pregnant, I do talk to my family and friends and boyfriend but not a lot of them are in my position at the moment, and my mother in law is a big help too as she's had three children but it's nice talking to people who aren't family.

  • Thank you very much

  • Hi, I am a first time Mom and am due 8th March so am now 15w +2 :) I would love to chat xx

  • That is just two days after my estimated due date! I knew we were close but didn't realise it was quite that close!

  • Ahh thats nice, I was actually due on the 12th but they bought me forward 4 days due to baby being bigger! How are you getting on?xx

  • I'm good. Still haven't really relaxed but every day I'm getting less anxious and worried. It helps that I'm finally getting a bit of a belly which is a reassuring sign things are still okay. How are you getting on? Xx

  • Getting really big!! Had to buy maternity bras and can only fit in leggings, haven't been able to wear my jeans for weeks. I am passed the tired stage now but had the flu jab on Friday and have felt so rough since then. I am also on 150mg of asprin which really worries me for my babies development. I need to ask more questions to my consultant as it has been prescribed purely due to my age (44) but I wish I didn't have to take it. My BMI is 23 blood pressure normal xx

  • I bought myself new bras at 11 weeks - I was getting that awful "overflow" look! And am also in maternity jeans now. But I look like I've been overindulging in cakes rather than pregnant! Ah, I still need to get the flu jab. My Gp isn't getting it in until the end of this month. Sorry to hear it has made you feel rough - that's something I've still got to look forward to! Xx

  • Ahh bless you, I thought it was just me!. I never really lost the weight and bloating after the ivf. I thought it would all go down before I started to show baby weight but no, have been big for 4 months!! Yes the flu jab was painless but have felt flu symptoms and been sleeping all weekend because of it! I never really feel like I can completely relax with this pregnancy as it is virtually impossible for us to try again if anything goes wrong xxx

  • I had the whooping cough innovation last week and my arm ached for a couple of days. I get the flu jab every year but it never has any affect on me. Hoping you are all keeping well. I'm due 21st Feb and not showing mum and everyone asks where my bump is so not feeling all that real for me yet. I can still get into my jeans with the help of a belly band. I'm passed the tired stage too, thankfully. Going to start some decorating next week whilst I'm feeling more energetic.

  • I'm due 20th Feb!

    I haven't been offered any flu or cough vaccines yet but I'm moving soon so my care is on stand still a bit.

    I felt like I had energy for the last couple of weeks, but now the morning sickness is back and I literally want to scream at myself for not making the most of all the time I had to eat all the nice foods 🤢😒

  • I have had several bleeds first one was at 5 weeks and only lasted a few days then it started again at 7 weeks and lasted all way through till 12 week! It has been very stressful without any real reason for it being given other than suggested implantation bleeding. How are you getting on?xx

  • Just thought I would add that I was just chatting to a friend who gave birth three weeks ago - I mentioned my bleed and she mentioned for the first time that she had spotting through her entire pregnancy and they couldn't ever work out why. Anyway, she now has a very happy and healthy little girl.

  • My cousin didn't even know she was pregnant and gave birth in the toilet.

    Obviously had proper spotting all the way and delivered a very healthy little girl.

  • Wow! I know someone who has period-like bleeds every month so didn't realise she was pregnant until 4 months along (baby was fine) but haven't heard of anyone going the whole way - that's amazing! She must have been completely shocked!

  • Hi I'm due 21st of March first baby too,. I had the few spotting which obviously left me worried because 2 years ago I had a miscarriage. From the other ladies reply it's normal for some women to bleed during pregnancy and go on to have a healthy baby, one friend of mine did bleed a lot but had a healthy baby boy. As for ethnicity don't pay too much attention to what people think. I'm black and my other half is white I couldn't care less what people think. Our child will be loved just the same. Try not to stress, I know it's easier said than done. All the best . xx

  • I have the same due date as you. Hoping you are keeping well

  • bey
