Hey everyone. Hope all is ok.
I'm itching to go and look at pushchairs but trying to resist hehe

I had my consultant appointment today and they scanned me again. I was able to see and listen to the heartbeat.
Can't believe how much baby has grown in 2 weeks!

Does anyone else keep feeling light headed?

Hi Leigh.

It is a very strange feeling. It normally happens when I need to eat something but it comes over suddenly.

Yeah I am consultant led due to previous ectopic and miscarriage.
I wasn't sure what to expect either but it was just like a midwife appointment. They tested my blood pressure and urine then asked how I was feeling. Because I told her I have lost most of my symptoms and had backache she wanted to listen to the babies heartbeat to reassure me. The only thing available was a small portable scan machine which she used. We only caught a bout a 90 second glimpse of baby but she pointed out the heartbeat and we could listen to it also which put my mind at rest. I don't think they do this routinely.

I was looking in the bounty pack at pushchairs secretly the other day, I liked the silver cross but don't think it was the wayfarer.

Hope all goes well tomorrow.

xx

I think you'd need to test before you buy, but the problem is you won't know how easy they are to move around on rough surfaces until you've already bought it. Not very fair I don't think as said before the shop floor is smooth and no curbs etc so it will feel easy. However I had fallen in love with the Chelsea wayfarer, that was what I wanted but when I seen the it comes with no extras apart from the carry cot, & the pioneer comes with that plus pushchair, etc. It's pricey but I think worth it, if your going to be one for using it alot which I hope to be. Have you looked at the pioneer before Leigh? Xxx

I had the wayfarer and I managed to get a full refund after 9months of having it, it was that bad!! It was disgraceful! Was fine in the shop coz it's flat smooth floor but going over a small twig made the wheels buckle and throw baby forward! I was baby wearing for the first 9 months then started using the pushchair for the school run and it couldn't even get up a dropped kerb!! Final straw for me was when Charlie hit her face on the front bar because we went over a small stone!! Called silver cross and went mental, went to mothercare and got a full refund! Read up on the reviews and everyone had the same problem! I don't buy anything at all now without reading reviews lol!
Gosh that's terrible! I've since read the reviews and seen loads of ladies saying how much they struggled, thank goodness they seen sense to refund you! Especially before something serious happened, my sister in law has three pioneer grey edition she says she loves it and it's so worth it. I just think the silver Cross prams are lovely! X

Sorry for so many post ladies catching up! Haha
Aww I'm so happy you got reassurance and everything's fine with your little one! Have you spoke to midwife about feeling light headed? Or GP not sure how it works where you are but up here my doctor deals with nothing pregnancy related unless somethings wrong. Maybe need to get blood sugars checked? Unless you've already had this! Hope your feeling better soon.

Quick update had results back for down syndrome screening ( I can't remember the proper medical name!) Everything is all clear x

I have just had an appointment through to see the consultant, I didn't think I would need to. It's 2 days after my 20 week scan not sure if this means I will now be consultant led I shall ask my midwife at my 16week appointment.

Yes on feeling light headed. I try to drink more water, because I think it may be related. I feel like that head rush you get when you stand up too fast, but it happens very randomly, like when I'm sitting down. I've got my 16 week appointment on Thursday, so I'll ask then.
As for the pram, I have my mind set on the oyster 2. I hated my first pram (mothercare), so I can't wait to use a much better one this time around. We are probably going to buy it second hand, though. I can't quite justify 800 on a pram.

I asked the consultant today about feeling light headed and she said my blood pressure is fine. She did mention to drink more water and to eat little and often. I do notice that it is worse if I am hungry or been a few hours since my last meal.
She mentioned it should tail off around 18 weeks and if it doesn't to mention it to them.

Good news on your test results Blisa

Tasha - I am consultant led but my midwife said I would be at my booking in appointment when I was 9 weeks.
It's strange they have given you an appointment for 20 weeks if you haven't seen one earlier. Have you had any previous complications? This was why my midwife put me down as consultant led. Definitely mention it at your 16 week appointment and she will tell you why.

When's everyone's next appointmenst ? Mine is midwife 22nd and a private gender scan on 24th

Aww I'm so jealous of all you lucky ladies able to have early gender before Christmas! I'm hoping to get one booked at the start of January, my 20 weeks scan isn't until 26th January, she's also booked me in for 2 extra at 33 & 37 weeks! Due to my BMI, she wasn't overly concerned.
I had my 12 week scan on the Tuesday and booking in appointment on the Friday, so kind of back to front.
Maybe phone & ask, think I'm bugging them with how often I phone to query haha! X

Mummyniknik - at my booking in appointment my midwife said she would send a letter off to see if the consultant wanted to see me but it has been so long I didn't think They did! In my last 3 pregnancies I have only carried as far as 36 weeks but all babies have been big and had no problems from being early. My last midwife said it could just be that my body cooks the babies quicker

Hi girls! Can I join for the June due dates? Just passed into the second trimester. I am due June 23rd.

Hey Leigh, I also get them from time to time. i didn't have any cramps in the first trimester so I got a bit worried when I got then now. I asked the doctor and she said it's probably ligament pain. They keep your uterus in place but as you grow, they get stretched. Nothing to worry about though!

Ladies, today is moving day, even though we are only moving across the street I feel very helpless, we live up 3 flights of stairs, so I can't carry anything too heavy. My partners got help but feel like I'm doing nothing, maybe just sit & snack listen to some Christmas music hahaha!! Hope you are all well! Kitana you've joined us! Welcome x
