It could be that your body is trying to miscarry lost babies but it won’t necessary affect the healthy baby. At least i hope not. All you can do really is just try to keep hope until Monday. But it’s totally ok to have a hard day!

I am good thank you, just got a cold whicj is annoying but baby thankfully is still cooking. I have started doing washing clothes and other stuff and putting it all away. About to start packing hospital bags soon too. My nephew is also back home, seems to be doing well and his feeding tube is finally out!

That must be so devastating! I found it really hard to wrap my head around that I was carrying my baby there without heartbeat for nearly 5weeks and I didn’t know all that time. I just cannot imagine how it is to continue to get on with life knowing that. One day at a time is a good approach and you still have baby A to look after. My heart really goes out for you! We are here any time you want to pour your heart out!

Every day the risks ar smaller and smaller and you are not too far off second trimester! As soon you get there baby should be ok. I am glad they are monitoring you.

Oh no Nikkilou i am so so sorry! But sounds like baby A is doing well, how many weeks is he/she measuring now? Will they continue to monitor you regularly? Will keep you in my thought!

Honestly the scan estimate sounds more correct for the weeks you are! Your midwife’s number sounds more like a weight for baby elephant. Think the weight they are predicting is really good!

Midwife measurements are very off in terms of baby’s weight. And scans are not that accurate either. I have seen so many ladies that have been told that their baby will be tiny and then is born normal weight or that will be a baby elephant and in the end baby is born tiny... what are they estimating him to be now? Does it work out you will be 37 weeks when have section? Such good news that he might not need surgery straight away! Fingers crossed he doesn’t so you will be able to get cuddles! I still got 6 weeks left to go at work! I will be just taking it week by week, feel fine atm most of the time.

Fair enough. But just because I didn’t get to “parent” doesn’t mean that i am not a mom. I lost 2 children so that makes me a mom. And society has made it such a taboo subject that women are made to feel ashamed when they miscarry and are considered not being worthy of a status just because some of the criteria hasn’t been met. And i just refuse to follow the society’s norm on this.

You gotta look for that silver lining!

Today we agreed with HR that my last day will be 2nd of august when I will be taking 3 weeks annual leave and then my maternity will start on 27aug. Providing nothing changes. Hopefully i won’t start struggling too much as it’s been quite good so far.

Exactly, just because we have been robbed from the “parenting” experience doesn’t mean we aren’t them! Yes we don’t know yet how difficult can be raising a child but it is also difficult to have a child that will never ever experience those milestones. I will never get tired of repeating this and I just wish I said something yesterday but it was just awkward as my MIL did make my SIL cry too. I am sure she didn’t mean to, and in general she tried to bring across a good point but it was just unneccessary.

That’s a shame that yor first baby’s father has cut you off like that but unfortunately you just can’t make people be considerate. You can try but it certainly doesn’t work.

Nikkilou, have you had any more scans?

My nephew is doing good thank you. He is out of intensive care and should be going home this week. They are taking a lot of measures to avoid any risks of him catching something again going forward until he gets stronger.

Yesterday it would of been our first baby’s first birthday, not great that it fell in on father’s day. So the day was quite mixed with emotions and we finished it off having a birthday cake and a candle for the baby which was nice. My inlaws were told that it would have been the first birthday and husband’s mum said we should do something special yesterday but when we actually saw them yesterday they didn’t even mention it so that was quite hurtful that they just forgot. They also said during the meal “cheers to 2 and a half father’s” (my brother in law was also there) meaning that they don’t see my husband as a father just yet which totally pissed me off too. I mean what exactly then makes person father or a mother? It’s like baby is supposed to look certain way and live for certain amount of time to be considered a parent to this baby. We see it as we have 3 children, 2 of which we didn’t get to bring home and raise but we are still mummy and daddy to them so just hate it when people especially family come up with such insensitive things. Sorry for moaning just needed to get it off.

Hope you had good time at the wedding!

Our nct class was great. And one of the couples turned out to be practically our neighbours, we live on the the same street and only are 6 days apart with our due dates haha

Yeah, i hope so too. I don’t expect to learn a lot from them lol but do hope we will get to meet some nice local couples! Next weekend we also got a couples workshop that is run by my pregnancy yoga tutor. It will be all about what physically to do during labour (positions etc) and will teach what partners could do to help rather than just sweat and pass out during the labour lol.

Glad to hear Leo is doing so well! Hope scan brings even better news!

He has got bronchiolatis rather than bronchitis, that’s a bit heavier virus. But he is doing good so far. They are turning off ventilator now sometimes so he would breathe on his own too. We got our first nct class this saturday, quite looking forward to that!

Just had my scan. Everything looked great and estimated weight now was 2lbs15oz or 1.341kg which again is just on track. Baby is still head down and just hope it stays that way until delivery!

On the worse side my nephew was taken to hospital again by ambulance. They had very scary day yesterday with moments were they were not sure if he is gonna make it but he is on the ventilator now and is in stable condition. They think he has got bronchialits so it’s just too much for him to breathe and fight infection at the same time. So the ventilator helps him breathing whilst he deals with the virus. Hopefully he won’t stay in hospital too long.
