Hey everyone,<br><br>Hope you're all doing ok and bumps are all coming along nicely. i had a lovely week in the Wye Valley - chilled out with DH and doggies and managed to suddenly outgrow all my bras!! Fantastic - i've always wanted bigger boobs! Went to john lewis to get measured yesterday and she started of with a D - i was so excited i was hopping around the dressing room! we settled on a C - didn't realise you shouldn't wear underwires though.<br><br>Nice to be home though, even if it did go too quickly. Dogs are happy to be back but missing the cows,<br><br>Take care everyone,<br>Much love, Lizzy xxx

34F - Fantastic!!! I'm just glad i've got a cleavage at last. i keep looking at them - i think DH thinks i'm nuts.<br><br>Going to doc tomorrow - have given up with the Predenemas, i've got it at the top and bottom end, so i guess it's the top bit giving me gip. So i'll be joining you on the steroids - i'm just hoping the doc will give them to me but i know she won't, I'll have to wait to see gastro man. Oh well - he did say to come back and see him when i got pg as he likes to see ladies bloom!!! OMG - that was years ago!<br><br>Good to hear you're starting to get there with the uc - last time i had steroids it was 3-4 weeks before they kicked in but they really worked welll.<br><br>My scan is on 29th August, so not long now - can't belive how quickly it's going but looking forward to seeing bubs again. i get a bit worried as my bump isn't very noticable yet - hows your's Tracey? I don't even really know how big it should be although i guess we're all diferent, (lady in John lewis thought i was much earlier on)<br><br>Have replied on your other thread as well cos hearing babys heartbeat is so fab it deserves its own thread,<br><br>Take care and keep well,<br>Much love, Lizzy xxx

I am so glad you had a nice holiday it does you good to have the break I don't have long to wait for my hols now going to Isle of Wight for a week which should be a nice break.<br><br>I had to go to Marks & Spencers too the weekend because I needed measuring I could of fell through the floor, I was a 36C and now I am a 40C omg!! I always wear underwired bra's but they said that I couldn't have one being pregnant and that she was quite surprised my midwife didn't tell me this. I am now in a lovely comfy bra which I love.<br><br>Love<br>Shell.<br>xx

Lizzy<br><br>wouldn't worry about bump too much - mine is ok - she measured me yeserday and was 17cm to top of fundus which is spot on for 17 weeks - said should be around a cm a week - I was 16.5. Some don't show at all - sure you're fine - sorry about the steroids -best to get sorted though. PG does funny things to our insides doesn't it! I am on 25mg this week and decrease by 5mg a week. Still bit dodgy but marked improvement so I am glad. Glad you have a cleavage - make the most of it with some flattering tops!<br>Take care and look after yourself<br>Love<br>Tracey<br>xxx

Went to docs today - she said everything with pg is fine and will make me an appt with gastro man. What on earth is a Fundus!!!<br><br>Shell - i've also got comfy bras now, in fact i've binned all my girly underwired ones. Sod lingerie - it's comfort all the way now! Have a lovely time in the isle of Wight - when are you going? There's a big scooter rally in Ryde over the bank holiday weekend - i used to go every year but i figured a rattly old Lambretta wasn't the best idea at the moment!! Have fun and chill out for the week.<br><br>Look after yourselves everyone,<br>Lizzyxxxx

Lizzy<br><br>you do make me smile! A fundus is the top of the uterus - the measure from the pubic bone to the top of the fundus - ie bump/uterus - is that what you had only she didn't mention it is called a Fundus?<br>Hope gastro man sorts you out - ooo er.<br>And well done on the non-underwired shell - I have been in nice support ones since week 8 - bliss!<br>Love<br>Tracey<br>xxx
