Hey hon, I've refused the flu jab for the last few years as it's always made me feel pants about a week after & I do end up with a cold ! Nothing a serious as what you've had, sounds horrid!

I had mine last week as knew that it's about the babies & worried in case something did happen & I hadn't had it & knew that it's not about me this time but I have a big fat cold this week & feel super grotty but I know it'll pass.

I'd discuss with your midwife/consultant Hun just because of the reactions you've had in the past. X

I dunno what to do, all the blurb says better for baby but anyone heard anything negative about having them? (I also have allergies to all antibiotics (both negative and positive kinds) just to up the anti)

I've made an appointment to get it done but now I'm worrying about getting sick off the back of the vaccinations this late in the game and the effect that could have on bean as well as the effect on bean by not having them
Tri hopping a bit here. Definitely think you should have a good conversation with your midwife about this. The risk to the baby might be bigger WITH the flu shot for you if you get such bad effects.

Really good weights!! I've got a scan on Thursday when I'll be on the verge of 27 weeks so I'm looking forward to seeing what they weigh. It's exciting seeing the weight going onto them now isn't it!

brilliant news and they are such a good size for twins. My little one was around 2 lb at 26 weeks so your twins are doing amazingly well!! Good news about placenta too.

My whooping cough jab wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, just couldn't really lay on my arm that night. Flu jab on Saturday...haven't had that before so I'm a bit wary.

I'm feeling very much in the third trimester now...did lots of walking yesterday and today and found it really hard after about 20 mins, back and hips were so achy by bedtime last night. Also getting reflux all the time, getting through Rennies like nobody's business...aaaand Braxton hicks have started, forgot how weird they are, not painful at all but it feels like my whole belly's dragging me down and if bub moves while I'm having one, it feels horrible!

How are all your symptoms?!

Oh yeah, totally forgot! My belly's started "clicking" when he kicks sometimes (like when you crack your knuckles). Had exactly the same with my daughter and she had hip dysplasia...it's supposed to be much more common in girls and first borns so I'm going to be so sad if he does have it...not really a huge issue but I found it really hard seeing my little girl in a leg harness from 6 to 13 weeks...

Oh I haven't heard of this before. I hope your little boy does not have it. will you only be able to find out at the birth?
