the swelling is getting me down today too, swollen from the rib area right down. argh.... how are cecilia???? and your family/
yyour scottish friend
hi Ohio thanks for replying!! ooh your lunch sounded lovely i do love mushroom dishes. will i ever learn ha ha ha i must admit i did have a lot of corn, i did this thinking id be fine as it hadnt be causing any problems for a while, but saying that i have stuck to small amounts compared to yesterday. i get the eating with other foods, kinda makes sense. maybe i should try that. Yesterday i was feeling rather famished, pregnancy causing sickness so i think when i am not and hungry i must eat quicker before the sickness returns and ruins my appetite. Likes of tonight i was really hungry, having herb and garlic crusted chicken with salad and fries, but my taste buds are all loopy and i didnt like the chicken so i had fries and salad instead, i seem to be ok with salads as long as seeds are removed from the tomatoes etc......
but oh your lunch did sound yummy, was it??? fancy describing it so i can maybe give it a whirl myself. please lol
well according to my dates the baby is due june 5th, but i have never carried to full term. Always wondered if that was cause of my health probs. Always had healthy babies thankfully. I am only 10 weeks so i dont know what the sex is yet. But we are still deciding whether to find that out or not. we already have 4 boys. joshua is 9, harvey and jacob are 6 and noah is 2. A little girl would even things out nicley, lol but we dont mind. none of our children have ever had bowel problems. such a relief.i have my first ultrasound on the 26th of this month, and then i will have another at about 20 weeks. To find out the sex we will go private. they dont tell you here on the nhs. It costs about $150. i think it is worth it. the scenery in Scotland is fab, especially pitlochry, and the glens, Glen Clova being a fave of mine. you would so love it.
garlic actually doesnt bother me, one of the things i am actually ok with. but if i have a lot of dairy and fibre together thats not a good mix.i love whitefish, with a cream and gruyere sauce, with savoy cabbage and new potatoes. I end up ill. Sometimes end up the same with mac n cheese, but not always its kind of a russian roulette.
i am not being sick. just feel sick most of the time. Here you actually have to be losing weight, be very dehydrated, etc... to get those meds. you also dont get to see a doc or a midwife til you have had your first ultrasound. Yep even with my previous health probs its the same. Unless something came up as an emergency. i do try and eat small meals 4-6 times daily, but when the nausea hits it makes it very difficult to keep to my routine, so in the end i do feel famished. its just the worst part of pregnancy isnt it??? you think with 4 kids i would be used to this, but i so am not!!!! i am even dreading the labour lol i know its forever away, but my baby sister just gave birth and i was thinking oh no what have done can i realy do this again????? lol nerves got the better of me. fine now of course but seeing my sis in pain was a bit much. i think you handle yourself better in pain than a loved one. not long to go till the first trimester is over then i can enjoy the eating part. lol i so am looking forward to that ha ha ha how on earth did you manage 9 kids???????????? such respect for you!
thank you for replying to my post everyone i really appreciate it xxxxx
wow wow wow
you must have some amount of energy!!!!!!! i would never ask if your children were accidents. i get asked that all the time, and it bothers me. i may be having my fifth or number 5 and 6, but every one was planned. i do love my boys too, just need a wee bit of backing up, lol 5 to 1 odds are always against me ha ha ha our house like yours is full of laughter screaming fighting etc... but i wouldnt change it. my children were all early. Joshua was a week early, harvey and jacob 5 weeks early and noah was 4 weeks early. Noah was the heaviest too, thankfully i didnt go to term, he was 7lbs 3. they say babies put on between 1/2 to 1 pound per week the last month!!!!! he could have been 11 lbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!
another thing that has bothered me this time round is when telling people my news, they are like. " oh are you ok?" as if having a child could be a bad thing, never mnd the ear to ear smile spread across my face. I do hate pregnancy too. Each time has been terrible. Last time with noah was awful i got told not to work anymore after having contractions( real ones) that started at 20 weeks, amazing he lasted so long in the womb as he did. Scaitic nerve always gets hammered, as well as the burst stomach muscles, support belts, body tubey grips. Worst part is always my hip. having the twins left me with nerve pain every now and agin, but when pregnant its there constantly. ah the things we go through to have a beautiful healthy baby at the end eh?? how are you mom9mom? xx
