Working

Anyone else work in nursery and just worry all the time? I work in the baby room of my nursery and I’ve been quite strict with telling them I’m not lifting or bending down because of previous losses etc so I’m wanting to be careful. But it’s just still so stressful and I just get so worried still over every thing ...

Am I just panicking??

Hey mummas! I’m 30 weeks pregnant with my first, does anyone else feel like they are completely unprepared and have so much to do or get by the time the baby gets here or am I just unnecessary panicking. We have the main essentials but nothing is organised and her nursery is no where near done. Please tell me I’m no...

No movement

I’m 20 weeks today and I have an anterior placenta I don’t think I’ve felt her move yet and I’m so so scared that something is wrong I have my scan tomorrow and I’m dreading it rather than excited :( anyone else in the same position? I also fell down the stairs on Sunday only on my belly and triage said baby is fine...

So incredibly anxious... Over what, I'm not sure?

This is my third pregnancy (1 miscarriage before our beautiful, healthy daughter). I'm not really sure the point of this post, maybe to vent, as I feel I don't want to keep burdening my husband and no one other than some colleagues know yet. For some reason, I'm so much more anxious this time round. I have my dat...

38 weeks

I’m at war in my mind… everytime I go to get NSTs done.. they say everything with baby boy is alright. However, when I’m at home I can barely feel him. Has anyone experienced this? What should I do? Any explanation for this? I don’t wanna feel like I’m wasting anyone’s time if he’s okay but it’s nerve wracking.

Big day tomorrow 🤍

Tomorrow I head in for my C Section and finally get to meet my little one - excited, nervous and everything in between. My anxiety is coming in waves and isn’t fun when it does… I’m trying to keep calm, distracted etc and know when I’m in the hospital it should be more settled… fear of the unknown I think right now...

Anxiety.

I am sorry to post on here but my anxiety is out of the roof all day today and I am really struggling. I am someone who really struggles with anxiety so much and I get so panicked with symptoms. I feel like I am annoying my midwife with messages and she doesn’t often responded, but I don’t want to keep calling tri...

Friendly reminder that even on your good days... take it slow!!!

I fell down the stairs yesterday. It all happened so fast, but I was in a rush to get down to where my husband and toddler were so I could give her goodbye hugs before daycare. I was hurriedly wrapping my robe around me, so no hands on the handrails. My foot slipped on one of the steps, and fortunately I just landed...

First Trimester

I’m in my first trimester and it’s really difficult. I can’t keep anything down, I’m exhausted, and everything stinks! I thought I wanted to have multiple children but idk if I can do this again. Just venting!

When did you start feeling baby daily?

I am 18 weeks and have felt baby every single day for the past like 4-5 days or so. This was the first week it’s been multiple days whereas before week 17 it was maybe once a week. It’s very light but I’ll feel definite taps. But this morning i haven’t felt anything all day and I’m starting to worry!!!! I had an an...

Uncontrollable emotions

My C-section is booked for tomorrow, I’ve been nervous all week since we signed the paperwork but I know it’s the safest option for baby. I’ve spent the last few days keeping busy doing odd jobs around the house and reading up on other people’s experiences. Today I’d set aside for some me time and a last pamper bef...

When to tell work?

I know you’re supposed to wait until the end of the 1st trimester but I have terrible morning sickness and I’m not sure I can keep it under wraps for the next 6 weeks. But I’m also terrified of losing baby. Anyone else in or have been in the same boat?
