    I’m sorry it’s not the new you were hoping for. Hopefully things have improved in 2 weeks and I’ll keep my fingers crossed you don’t have preeclampsia. Did you say you had it in your last pregnanacies?

    Wondering how @Jac2019 is doing? It’s been a while since we’ve heard from her. Hopefully everything is ok and she’s just taking a break from being on here.

    @MelC2011 I don’t have enough room for a nursery this time around, so the babies will just be in my room. It takes the stress out of having to come up with a theme and make a room look ‘perfect’ like what I tried to do with my first!
    It does mean space is very much limited which is stressing me out a bit. But I’m sure I can squeeze us all in for a while!

    I hope everyone else is ok.
    Has everyone had their 20 week scan now? Anyone left to have one? Still got lots of team yellows on the front page! You ladies have so much more patience than I do!

    Yeh I had pre eclampsia with previous, and am on aspirin due to this. I also suffered from Oligohydramnios in both previous pregnancies. First was expected due to fetal hydronephrosis, but since then they think it’s a maternal issue instead as me second baby didn’t have that. It just adds extra stress and appointments, and means I have had to deliver early at a south hospital so would prefer it not to all happen this time with the current virus situation. But will just take it as it comes, as that’s all that can be done :) xxx

    Oh I know it’s terrible. I’m terrified I will have them really early and they will need NICU time. I just want to have them and get them home ASAP where I know it’s safe and I can be with them.
    But yes. Take it a day at a time and hopefully the Coronavirus situation has calmed down a little bit come July/August.

    How are you feeling now? Still not many movements? I would give your maternity triage number a wee call just for advice.

    She started moving around a bit in the morning but was quiet again last night but moving again this morning, her routine seems to have changed I think but still monitoring it. I also had a teeny tiny bit of blood on the tissue when I wiped last night a couple of times, but I do have piles (sorry tmi) so think that could have been what I was picking up or I’ve got a graze as my knickers are getting a bit too tight now lol! Sorry a bit graphic ladies just worried. Going to see how today goes too and ring my midwife tomorrow if I’m still worried.xxx

    @chattychar1990 I think Jac wanted to stay off the internet for a while so that might explain her absence.x

    Feel like I’m going to be the size of a house by the end of this!
    My belly button is already starting to pop out!!

    I’ve gone back to not being able to sleep well, always waking up sore, despite my massive pregnancy pillow. It worked two night though and is supper comfy for lounging about so, oh well.

    My kicks are all over the place! Haven’t noticed much of a routine, but I am feeling lots and lots throughout the day. I FINALLY got my daughter to sit for long enough to feel a kick. So that was super special for me.

    I hope everyone else is doing ok.

    Got the results of my blood test from last week. I need to take iron tablets. Like my constipation isn’t bad enough! Oh well. If it makes me feel slightly better I guess it will be worth it.

    How are you doing @Jade jones?

    It seems to have gotten very quiet in here the last few weeks. I’m sure everyone is just busy.

    Is anyone in Tri 3 yet?
    I’ll be 27 weeks on Thursday. It starts in week 28 doesn’t it? So not long to go.

    I’ve still not managed to get down to the doctors for my iron tablets, but I found a trial pack of the pregnacare vitamins with iron in them so I have been taking them. I do feel slightly better. Not much though!
