There is going to be a blogging & Twitter event led by March of Dimes, and I feel proud to be a part of it. All this involves is blogging and tweeting about preemies on the day. It would be fabulous if any of my followers/tweeters/bloggers would join in, the more, the better, to raise awareness of such an important subject.
You need not have had personal experience of having a premature baby, I haven’t. With 1 in 9 babies born premature each year in the UK, you are bound to know one; I do. You could post about someone you know who’s had a premature baby, someone you know who was a premature baby themselves, an article you’ve read, a programme you’ve seen on TV, you could even post a photo, a poem, get your children involved or even do a vlog.
If you don’t blog but would like to get involved, I’d be happy to have guest posts on my blog; it could be a great opportunity to share your child’s story. It would be fabulous to get as many people involved as possible.
So why not comment below and pledge to blog/tweet etc. about preemies on the 17th November!
So I’m pretty sure I felt baby G move on Tuesday (15+2)! It was after our midwife appointment, we were at the supermarket and I suddenly felt fluttering in my tummy, you know like when you have one of those twitches you can’t control, and like butterflies! It lasted about 2 or 3 minutes, but I wasn’t sure at first because I didn’t feel anything again until last night when I went to bed, it was exactly the same and lasted 1 or 2 minutes.
I had to ask people on the forum as I wasn’t sure, I thought it might be my tummy messing me about or rumbling or something, but even so, I’ve never felt anything like this before, so it seems so! When I was reading the replies to my post I felt it again, and I can feel slightly now as I’m writing this!
Hubby keeps trying to feel it, but I told him he won’t be able to feel anything just yet, so he just keeps talking to bump instead, bless him!
When did you first feel your baby move?
Yesterday was our 15/16 week routine midwife visit. Just went through the norms, my blood results from booking in came back fine for everything, then she took more blood for the Down’s screening, as the sonographer couldn’t get a measurement at our scan! I will get the results from that through the post. I told her about the bleeding I’d had, and that there’d been nothing since, so she was pleased about that.
I mentioned about my headaches, she said I am safe to take 2 paracetemol, and if it doesn’t go after that then it is a “hormone headache”. I then decided that if it does disappear, then it must just be a husband headache! (Don’t tell him I said that!) I have only been taking half at once though so far, and it’s gone, so it must be the latter…
Next appointment is at 25 weeks, on the 29th November, when she will measure bump and listen in! Exciting! Though we have our 20 week scan before that so that is more exciting 🙂
Today marks 15 weeks pregnant!
I’m sure it just appeared overnight, after the panic on Thursday! I love it. (Even though I’m convinced half of that is still fat… This is another thing, I just can’t over the feeling of and thinking that I look fat…)
