20 week scan

Postby Lizzy7 » Fri Aug 29, 2003 4:26 pm

Hey all,<br><br>Had my scan today - lovely to see bubs again and everything seems to be fine. It was lying there with it's arms behind it's head and gave a big yawn - very chilled out. Hate calling bubs 'it' but couldn't see what it was and hospital won't tell us (and DH doesn't want to know).<br><br>Saw GMTV yesterday and they had a couple on who had gone into labour and the hospital kept telling her not to come in yet - then it was too late and she had to have it at home. Then they named the hospital and it's OUR one!!!!! NOt filling me with confidence!<br><br>Hope you are all ok,<br>Mcuh love, Lizzy xxx :)

Hi Lizzy<br><br>I am glad everything went well with your scan its so excited, did they do all the abnormalities checks?<br><br>I know your not much in front of me with your pregnancy, just a quick question. Do you feel the baby moving about every day? The reason I ask is because I don't always feel the baby move. I didn't feel it yesterday at all. I do sometimes get a grumbling in my tummy but is this just hunger pains lol.<br><br>Hope to hear from you soon.<br><br>Love<br>Shell.<br>19wks 2d pg<br>xx

Hi Shell,<br><br>They did all the checks and everyhting looked normal which is a relief - I haven't felt any movements yet, maybe just a couple of 'pops' (which could have been wind!) lol<br><br>I was starting to panic a bit as i hadn't felt anything - but it was moving aroung in there so i guess i'll feel it soon. I don't think you need to worry, Shell - i think sometimes they're a bit more active and sometimes they're not. Wish i could help more,<br><br>Take care, <br>Love, Lizzy xxxx<br>20 wks today - half way!!!!

Lizzy<br>I was just thinking of you - what wonderful news - how laid back - laying around - didn't have a pina colada in it's hand then? How was gastro man - been wondering about you. I have another 3 weeks of steroids but colitis cleared up - my 20 week is one week tomorrow. Hope all ok - I get popping some days and others baby badger is chilling and don't get a flaming thing! Had a boring day with a collegue the other day and baby decided he was "snoresville" too and went into a near coma I think!!! shell is you are reading this don;t worry - it's all normal - sometimes at this stage we will feel them and sometimes not - depends where they are and what they are doing I suppose and some get nothing until 22 weeks plus. Your scan soon just ahead of mine - are you asking the sex - we are. Our hospital will tell us I think - if we can;t see it then no worries not the end of the world just want to know all ok really!<br>Lizzy - fab news and don't worry about the hospital - it can happen at any hospital and I am sure has done at all of them in their time.<br>Just go in and stay put!!!! Sit down and don;t move if you are early!<br>TAke care<br>Love<br>Tracey<br>xxx

Hi Tracey<br><br>I have my 20wks scan on Thursday and I can't wait.<br><br>I will be able to chill out for the next two weeks because I have broke up from work. Going away on Saturday for a week to the Isle of Wight so that can't come quick enough either.<br><br>Tracey I'm not going to ask what the sex of the baby is, neither Lee or I want to know. We want it to be a surprise.<br><br>I have been buying things for the baby but just brought creams, delicate lemon, white, and delicate green. I am so excited.<br><br>Thanks for the reassurance on the baby moving, I know somedays it moves more then others and I am sure to be feeling it soon.<br><br>Hope everyone else is ok.<br><br>Love to you all.<br><br>Love<br>Shell.<br>19wks 4d pg<br>xx

Hello - hope you all had a lovely weekend :)<br><br>Shell have a lovely time on the IOW - have a really good rest. How exciting is it buying stuff!!!! We ordered a cot on Friday - our fisrt big thing and i bought a few more clothes, same as you - all neutral colours. Good luck for your scan on Thurs.<br><br>Tracey - don't worry, if i think it's coming i'll go chain myself to the nearest midwife. That's funny about your boring collegue - i like thinking of them doing stuff inside you (bubs that is, not boring collegues!!!) Sometimes i dance around my darkroom waiting for prints and i like to think bubs is jiggling away too! Still haven't seen gastro man - trying to get an appt is impossible. Am going to mither my gp this afternoon, spent yesterday unable to stand up cos of pain in my side.<br><br>Good luck for scan next week - can't wait to find out if it's a Ms or Mr baby badger,<br><br>Have a lovely day, Lizzy xxx

Dear Lizzy,<br><br>Great news - I've got my 20 week scan on Wednesday, so I'm looking forward to it. <br><br>I think my baby must be quite active as I feel it quite a lot (well I think and I hope that that's what I'm feeling!!) - to me it feels like a muscle that's twitching inside my tummy. I don't feel it everyday, but it seems to be getting more frequent. <br><br>I think like everything in pregnancy, everyone is different - some people don't seem to feel anything until quite late, so I wouldn't worry. <br><br>Alison xx<br>

Hi Everyone<br><br>On the countdown now waiting to go and have my scan 14:00 on Thursday can't come quick enough. I just hope and pray everything will be ok. I did feel my baby move in the night just a few times and nothing this morning so he/she must be asleep. <br><br>Lizzy what sort of cot you having, I saw a lovely one in Toys r us it was brown and it was a mama's & Papa's one and I said to my Mom that I really liked it. I have also seen my buggy which I like which is in Mothercare, but my Mom & Dad have kindly offered to pay for the buggy. I know that if I have my buggy it can't come home with me.<br><br>When I come back from hols I have to start the nursery, as anyone else started doing a nursery?<br><br>Love<br>Shell.<br>19wks 5d pg<br>xx

Hi Shell,<br><br>We haven't done anything yet or bought anything - I guess I want to wait until after the 20 week scan (tomorrow - ooohhh). <br><br>I also work at home, so cann't start the nursery until I go on maternity leave. Talk about leaving it until the last minute!<br><br>Good luck for Thursday,<br><br>Alisonxx

Hi Everyone<br><br>I can't believe we have our 20 weeks scan so close, I hope everything goes well with your scan tomorrow Alison, what time do you have to go? you will post on board and let us all know won't you?<br><br>Well for my nursery I have seen the brown wooden cot I like which is Mama's N Papa's from Toys r Us quite surprised its only £199 which isn't bad. Then I am going to paint the walls cream and I have seen a border with beige and brown teddies and it as well so I will have that. They also do all the cot stuff to match, I am just going to have the sheets etc... I do like the look of the duvets but I worry anyway about something happening to the baby. They also do a mama's N Papa's mobile with the same teddies which are on the border.<br><br>Lee & I are going to start the nursery when we come back from hols, so I would say it will be the end of September Lee will do all the painting I will just supervise ha ha lol only kidding.<br><br>Love <br>Shell.<br>19wks 5d pg<br>xx

Hiya,<br><br>How exciting doing nurseries! :) I'm in a bit of a odd situation - we don't have a spare room for bubs. Dh's kids come over most weekends for 1 or 2 nights and they have their own room. This means the rest of the time it's empty and it would be perfect for a nursery. I don't want DH's kids to feel pushed out (although they'll be nearly 16 and 13 when bubs arrives) but bubs needs a room. i'm avoiding bringing it up with DH too much!!<br><br>Besides that, buying stuff is really exciting. Shell - i got my cot from M&P's, it's a wooden one and it's a 'Helena' - it's v simple and a bit smaller than the others but lovely.<br><br>Alison - you sound like you've got a live-wire there, hope your scan goes well tomorrow and bubs sits still long enough for you to have a look!! LEt us know how it goes and happy shopping for afterwards.<br><br>Shell - good luck for Thurs and Tracey for monday - so lovely to be at this stage together.<br><br>My boobs are nearly a D!!! <br><br>Lizzy xxxx
