Jul 20th, 2005, 11:47 AM   #1
 
Ok this is an advance on the few questions i asked on another topic.....I thought it would be a good idea to find out loads of stuff about each other and our pregnancies as each month progresses....compare notes if you like

1. Your age and location?
2. Is this your first child?
3. How long were you trying to concieve (or was it unplanned)?
4. When and how did you find out you were pregnant?
5. Have you had a scan yet?
6. Have you seen your midwife yet?
7. Do you "feel" pregnant?
8. List your symptoms so far.
9. Have you started to put on weight?
10. Do you smoke?

(If you do smoke and wish to give up and havnt yet already found support contact the NHS Pregnancy Helpline on 08001699169 between 12 midday to 9pm every day......they dont judge, dont make you feel guilty and are very suportive......good luck)
Copy and paste these questions in to a reply then just type in the answers....i will try and think of some different questions for next month.....lets be nosey and see how we all get on :P

I think this is a great idea - seeing as we are all heading down the same road at the same time - we could go into competion to see who gives birth first!!!!!

Here are my answers: (Faye - my answers are very similar to yours!!)

1. Your age and location?
I'm 31 and Live in Leicester

2. Is this your first child?
Yes

3. How long were you trying to concieve (or was it unplanned)?
was only trying for two months - got pg in the second month!! so very lucky.

4. When and how did you find out you were pregnant?
Had Period pain type cramps when about 3 days before I was due on. I thought this was a bit strange as I only have Period pains on the day I come on. Went home early one friday as it was getting on my nerves and bought a pregnancy test that day to do the week after - got home though and decieded to do it 'for the fun of it' and it came up positive almost instantly!!!!!!

5. Have you had a scan yet?
Yes early scan at 6 weeks - only the sac could be seen due to it being too early and too much gas!!!

6. Have you seen your midwife yet?
No but would really like to as have a lot of questions

7. Do you "feel" pregnant?
Wierd to answer - not really just feel different with being tired / worried about it all time - not 'enjoying' the worrying part. Looking forward to the nice bit - e.g the Bump / maternity clothes / baby shopping lol

8. List your symptoms so far.
The cramps have gone which are worrying me - but the tiredness is killing me - came home at lunch again today to sleep! Got in bed at 1.00pm and have only just woke up at 6.00!!! Feel nauseas most of the day too- but stave it off by eating little and often.

9. Have you started to put on weight?
I have put on 2/3 pounds but it looks more a lot more than that - my belly is massive but I think its just bloating. I put on another post somewhere that i look like Im in the 3rd Trimester by the look of my belly!!!!

10. Do you smoke?
Yes Finding it very very difficult to even contemplate giving up - and I know how bad it is - which is why I feel even more bad about it. Am cutting down at present.

This is a great idea for a thread.. was hoping to "chat" to others at similar stage as I haven't really told anyone yet and its driving me mad that I know so little and am soooooo anxious!!

1. Your age and location?
I am 36 and live in Nottingham

2. Is this your first child?
Yes, but I have had 2 very early m/c

3. How long were you trying to concieve (or was it unplanned)?
We had just decided to start trying and then during a romantic weekend in Italy [for a friends wedding] we were rather happy and so I think it happened there.... so we were trying for about a month I suppose.

4. When and how did you find out you were pregnant?
Had a funny feeling when weird cramping 2 weeks before period due but then no real PMT symptoms... did test after period was 2 days late. In fact I did 3 tests to be sure!!

5. Have you had a scan yet?
NO.. I WISH I COULD!!

6. Have you seen your midwife yet?
Seeing her on August 1st

7. Do you "feel" pregnant?
NO not really. thats why I want a scan so badly.. anxious as hell!!

8. List your symptoms so far.
Mild cramping and lower abdominal pains on left then right side week 4 [when period expected] then occasionally light headed.
Weeing all the time from week 4 too.
No nausea or sickness at all yet...?
Boobs became swollen and tender week 5 & 6. A bit better now but still swollen.
Very tired [wish I could take naps at work!!] during the day
Very hungry all the time!! Eating all day it seems.
Insomnia.. wake up for loo several times a night and then wide awake at 5am!!

9. Have you started to put on weight?
Not sure.. haven't weighed myself but seem a bit bloated

No.. but I miss my wine and chocolate!!

Ooh this is a GOOD idea! Have already seen people going through same things as me!
1. Your age and location?
29, Manchester (but from Wales originally!)
2. Is this your first child?
First - VERY excited! Had miscarriage at 7 weeks with previous (horrible) husband about 2 yrs ago.
3. How long were you trying to concieve (or was it unplanned)?
Bit of an "oops" but we were going at it like bunny rabbits with no protection! Came off pill in February so about 4 months.
4. When and how did you find out you were pregnant?
Being an obsessive personality I'd bought a vile of tests from a medical website so could do loads of tests for very little cost. Found out week I was due on. Same strange peiod pains about day 24 - week before I should have come on.
5. Have you had a scan yet?
Glad to not have one at this early stage, no news is good news. Had early (and therefore internal) scan last time and the bloody person REALLY hurt me moving the thing up there from side to side to "take a look at my tubes" - I'm not built to go that way, Hello!
6. Have you seen your midwife yet?
No, midwife at GP super busy so not managing to see her until I'm 8 weeks.
7. Do you "feel" pregnant?
Not really, all a bit unreal as it wasn't meant to happen so quickly!
8. List your symptoms so far.
Period pains - some pretty bad every now and again
VERY sore boobs and darkening nips.
Bloated, really swollen with awful diarrhea - been off sick all week, can't leave house it's so bad. Can I take immodium safely??
9. Have you started to put on weight?
Already a heffer so the weight gain won't show up so much - about two pounds so far.
10. Do you smoke?
No gave up last August - hence the heffer comment. Put on lots of weight after quitting fags 'coz didn't monitor what I was eating.

So good to hear from you all!!

1. Your age and location?

I am 30 and Live just North of Portsmouth (so near the sea) in Hampshire, UK


2. Is this your first child?

Nope this is number three, already have a boy of 5 and a girl of 4.


3. How long were you trying to concieve (or was it unplanned)?

We tried for three months with no luck then we stopped trying as I was supposed to have an operation and bingo I fell pregnant!!!


4. When and how did you find out you were pregnant?

My aunt flow is as regular as it could be so when I suddenly realised I was a few days late I did a test - hubby was working in London so I sent him a picture on his phone of the possitive test with the words "you're gonna be a daddy again!!"


5. Have you had a scan yet?

No - we only get one here and thats at 16 weeks


6. Have you seen your midwife yet?

No - our first appointment is ten weeks - saw the GP who said all was well with wee sample, blood pressure etc!!


7. Do you "feel" pregnant?

Oh yes.....I am starting to resemble a small barrell already - I seemed to show early with my second and this seems the same. I feel tired and VERY fussy with my food - can only eat what I really fancy. Yesterday that was Jelly and ice cream and I normally hate Jelly!!


8. List your symptoms so far.

Slight sicky feeling when tired or hungry.
Boobs growing which is a bonus for an A cup girl!!!
Tummy growing
VERY TIRED
Darker nipples.
Seem to be blessed with extra discharge!! (sorry TMI)
Crampy tummy when I stand up
I can smell everything 100 times more!!



9. Have you started to put on weight?

No luckily I have actually lost 3lb which is a blessing as I am already a size 16-18 so don't want to pile it on, I put on loads with my first and second but this time I am trying to be more sensible.......yeah right!! I am sure I will gain some soon, I actually lost weight in the first few weeks with my first so maybe that means its a boy - who knows!!


10. Do you smoke?

No, thankfully never have (except one menthol cigarette on a very drunken night out once!!) A lot of my family are smokers so I admire all of you who are trying hard to cut back or quit alltogether!!



Love to you all!!!

4. When and how did you find out you were pregnant?
I did a test because I was supposed to be going to a big dinner and just wanted to check it's be fine to get wrecked. Couldn't believe it when the line appeared!! I did 2 more tests before I really believed it, one straight away and one that evening (in case I'd become un-pg in 8 hours!).

Erm, not sure really. Feel a bit woozy and my boobs are very sore, so I suppose I do.

8. List your symptoms so far.
Sore boobs, no period, positive test(s), slight implantation bleeding, bit icky, tired, irritable, gone off food.

9. Have you started to put on weight?
No, have actually lost a little, probably 'cos I can't stand food!
