Is anyone else pregnant with their 3rd??

I am 11weeks 6days today and I just dont feel pregnant. I haven't even got a bump so not had to start wearing bigger sized Jeans. All the things that I have read said that you go bigger with your 2nd/3rd. I remember with my 2nd that I started wearing my next size up Jeans around 16 weeks I think. All I remember with my last pregnancies is my uterus being rock solid so I am just constantly proding it to see if it is getting hard but it isn't.

My midwife is being usless and as she doesnt deal with the hospital I have chosen to give birth in I have to get reffered by her to the hospital then have an appointment in the hospital (which is this Tues and will be 2 weeks since I had my 8wk app at the gp surgery) then the midwife their refers me for a dating scan. I am paranoid to hell that the baby isn't growing properly and I have to wait so long for a scan. I had a mc in Dec which I think is the root of all these anxious feelings. Sorry to waffle.

  • I wouldnt be too worried about this. since it is your 3rd pregnancy i think it could just be the fact your body is handling it so well due to the last 2 children this baby has probably got alot of space in there.

  • I have put 5lbs on but the midwife said it is water although I dont think that making my way through my sons easter eggs is helping a great deal either. It is just finding something nice to have in the evening instead of a glass of wine.

    I think after I have the scan at the hosp I will feel better, I just feel like I have been waiting forever.

  • Hi I'm also expecting my 3rd - currently 16 weeks - with a 14 year gap since my last! I started wearing maternity clothes from around 9 weeks as I couldn't stand having anything around my waist. My waistline has grown by about 5 inches and I've put on around 2.5 kg in total so far (too many Easter eggs?). My bump is unmistakable and i've gone up several bra sizes already. I had a somewhat toned tummy before, but it already seems a distant memory :-)

  • Hi I am expecting my 3rd as well with 7 years gap from my last. now 20 weeks, I feel like I am 6month pregnant. I produce excessive saliva (also called ptyalism) from six weeks and to control it I have to have something in my mouth constantly. Because of this I put on weight easily so by the time I am 12 week i am looking for maternity wear and my bra size is now a DD from a B. cant help it, it had been the same with my previous pregnancies. Due for my next week but not sure if I want to know!! I have 2 wonderful girls already.

  • i feel like that and am so anxious even though i have a bump i think its all fat! ive put on 10lb already and im 12 weeks mon! i dont feel that hardness that i felt with my boys...so makes me wonder if everything is ok...i suppose i will find out on wed when i have my scan so unnerving!!! x

  • Bet you cant wait till your scan. I have got to have my hosp midwife app on Tues before I even get reffered for a scan and I am 12weeks tomorrow. Will you let me know how you get on at your scan?

    Maybe we are having girls this time then, thats why everything feels different. Are you going to find out at your 20wk scan what sexs you are having??

  • i had my third child 11days ago and it was my hardest pregnancy. all the worry has i didn't have symptoms, placenta being at the front so not feeling much movement until later on. also low iron, blood thinning injections, gestational diabetes and having to inject insulin daily all of which i didn't have in my previous pregnancies.
