I had a bit of a disasterous morning, I sliped in the bathroom this morning and almost fell I caught onto the wall but seemed to pull something in the region of the baby. I called my dr's nurse and she told me it should be fine. I am so scared I have done damage. I have not had any bleeding so I think everything should be fine but I am waiting to feel my little one move, I normally only feel movement in the evening. I hope I feel something soon.
On a better note DH felt the baby move last night he was so excited.
I hope you all have a wondeful day
Sousou and Istyle good luck for your appointments this week looking forward to the updates
I'm sorry to hear about your scary morning! I'm sure the baby is fine. You probably just pulled a muscle - I'm sure your muscles down there (like mine) are a litte slack from being careful w/ your pregnancy & you probably just woke the muscle up a bit by making it work to catch your fall. The lack of bleeding is a good indication that all is well. I hope you feel the baby move today though cuz I know I would be worrying too in your situation. It's just natural. How exciting that DH got to feel the baby move!! I have still yet to feel any movement at all & I'm getting very anxious. I'm at 18 weeks, so it will hopefully be coming soon.
Aw, Charlene... sorry to hear that. But don't worry, I'm sure you're fine! Your baby is verrrrrrrry well protected in there. It seems like you just pulled a muscle in there. Try drinking some orange juice or a sugary drink, I heard that gets the baby moving! A friend of mine would do that when she didn't feel her baby after awhile and it worked everytime. Don't worry!
Thanks Holly and CW for the reassuring words. I still have not felt the baby but I have been busy this evening cooking dinner and measuring the babys room to see if all the furniture I ordered is going to fit so I have not had much time to relax. I am going to have a warm shower and then try and relax and then see it I will feel any movement. But like you said I probably only pulled a muscle and my baby is fine there is alot of protection down there. I will let you know when I feel the little one move.
Sou Sou and Istyle, Good luck with your appts. I'm excited to hear about both of them.
Charlene, I'm sorry to hear that you had a scary morning but glad to know that you are feeling better. I'm sure your little one is just fine! How exciting that Dh got to feel the baby move. That must have been so neat for both of you.
All, Last night I started feeling some stronger movements but dh still couldn't feel her. I'm guessing he will be able to soon. I was so excited about it. On a not so bright note: For the past couple of days my upper inner thighs (like where your leg mets your pubic region) have been very sore. I don't remember experiencing this with ds, are any of you having this and what is causing it?
Thanks and have a great week...I'll be checking in soon!
Charlene sweetie, I am so sorry to hear about your fall! It must have been scary, but I too am sure all is okay with baby. They really are extremely protected in there. I have a feeling you might have turned in for the evening. Hopefully you felt a few kicks as you lied down to doze off after dinner and you are fully reassured. I tell you, the bathrooms are a very tricky place. I actually almost passed out in the shower yesterday morning... got light headed, started seeing black spots, thought for sure I was gonna vomit... quickly got out with shampoo still in my hair and sat on the floor for a while, but I was VERY afraid of going down, mainly slipping while getting out of the tub. DH is going to be getting me a chair so I don't have to stand up while in there. It might be a good idea if both of us also got some extra mats for the bathroom floor. Well I'm just so glad you are okay. Please let us know when you wake up if you got to feel baby move some more. And how awesome that DH got to feel your little one moving inside of you too! He must have been so excited.
Hey Holly! How are you and little baby doing? So remind me, is that appointment of yours in 2 weeks the one where we will find out if it's a baby boy or a baby girl? I'm thinking it must be... I'm so excited!
Tiffany, even tho I'm not nearly as far along as you (I'm only 9 weeks tomorrow), I have been feeling a very similar soreness in the same area for about 4-5 days now. It's mainly when I get up and start walking. It's not too painful, just a bit sore. I gained 7 lbs in only 10 days... wondered if that had anything to do with it. I'm also expecting triplets so I imagine things are expanding very rapidly down there and maybe it has something to do with the weight and how our body is adjusting to what's going on. Anyway, just thought I'd chime in on that. Hope you and your little girl are having a great day.
Kari your idea of sitting in the shower is a good one my only problem is when I get out and walk on the tiles. I went to look for a big mat to put in my bathroom but was unsucessful. I will go and look at some other shops today.
I did feel my little one move but not as strongly as I usally do. I am still a little worried but not like I was yesterday. I hope I get some big kicks today.
DH was so cute this morning he took the ipod and placed it on my tummy and guess what he was playing to our little one **REMOVED**
Tiffany I am sorry you are experiencing pain in your inner thighs I unfortunatly cannot comment on that, I just hope it gets better soon.
I hope you all have a wonderful day or for most of you it is still evening.

Hey Char! So glad the baby was moving around a bit for you. I'm sure that first movement after the slip was a huge reassurance! As for finding the perfect bathmat, well maybe this means you'll have to take a trip back to JBurg for some more shopping!!! BTW, I think your DH and my DH would get along great when it comes to iPod tunes for baby... I think my DH would love for one of our babies to follow in his love for rock n roll! Alright my friend, I'm sure you're just getting your day started as it's time for me to turn in. Hope you get some nice strong kicks from baby today!
I am sure our DH's would get along just perfectly. Sleep well my friend. My day has just stated. I think a trip to joburg again is a good idea I am just not sure my bank balance will agree, with me being a housewife now.
I am also glad that I got to feel a bit of movement last night, it makes me feel so much better.
Hi Charlene, I'm glad you got to feel some more movement! I hope your worries continue to fade away as baby's kicks get stronger & stronger.
Kari, hi! I was just reading up on the December thread...how nice to see you over here! My next appt is actually just another check up, but my big u/s is scheduled later that same week. So I will have an appt on 7/8 w/ the dr & then on 7/11 for the level II u/s. I'm so excited!! It's going to be a big week for me! It sounds like you are putting the weight on good. I know you need to gain quicker w/ trips so I'm happy to hear you're managing to do it! You must not be experiencing any m/s.
Tiffany, I'm not sure if I'm experiencing exactly what you described. I definitely have more aches & pains than usual & some days when I get out of bed I have a hard time walking for a few steps, but I'm not sure if that's really the same as what you're describing. I'm sure it's all a natural part of the process of all the changes occuring in our bodies. Hope you feel better soon though. It's certainly not fun to be in any pain.
I am sorry Namibia about your fall, but I think baby is fine, it is just sometimes because we are so worried that we think baby is moving less...I remember so many stories of preg family members slipping in the bathroom and everything was fine after that , I even have a cousin who had a big fall coming out of the bathtub, had some bleeding but after a week of bed rest she was and baby fine.......I myself fell with my previous pregnancy ( big one )I was 6 months , twisted my foot while walking in our backyard and fell backward on my behind,I felt some liquid coming out and really was thinking It was amniotic fluid. and that I lost my baby but it wasnt , I guess just wherever was in my bladder came out from the fall...I could'nt walk for three days but my baby was fine thank God....the doctor told me that babies are very well protected inside and unless it is a big accident we shouldnt worry...
hope everything is great with all of you ...we had a big heat wave here in los angeles and because of that I have been suffering from migraine headaches..my doctor told me headaches are very common during second trimester...
Holly and Sousou I am feeling much better now b/c my baby has been very active today and gave me a few really good kicks through out the day. I was probably just a bit paranoid yesterday.
Sousou I am sorry you are suffering from migranes due to the heat, just drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated. We have the opposite weather here and it is cold.....and I am not a winter person at all. Good luck for you up coming appointment, I think it is on Friday right?
Holly I am really looking forward to your appointments that are coming up.
Istyle good luck for your appointment tomorrow I hope everything goes well. Cannot wait to hear all about it.
My appointment went very well! First thing is we found out it is a GIRL!! And boy did she want it known! The ultrasound tech said that she was glad we wanted to know be/c there was no hiding it! She is also very healthy!!
OK...don't know if you read my other thread on the main page about my rash on my eyes...well, I asked the doctor about it and I unfortunaltly threw up so hard that I caused blood to come to the surface of my face. He said it will go away but he doesn't know when...here is what I know...I am on baby aspirin and I was with my son...I got petica with him and it didn't go away until I came of the aspirin so my guess is that since this is the same thing that it isn't going to go away until I come off my aspirin in 4 1/2 months...so basically I will look like a freck until then! It is all worth it in the end but boy I look like I have come down with some skin disease. My husband and even the doctor told me it was cute and not that noticeable...but then again there faces were...don't kill me it looks bad...ha, ha!
Well, I hope all of you other November mommies are doing great!
Istyle, Congrats on your baby GIRL, that makes two of us having girls! That is such an exciting feeling finding out the gender but more importantly knowing everything is going great and that she is healthy. I'm sure your "rash" isn't as bad as you think, we are always so much more critical of ourselves than others are. Hopefully until then the asprin helps and you can use make-up to help cover it up. Congrats Again!!!
Sou Sou, your appt for your level 2 u/s is Friday, right? Best of luck with that...I'm sure everything is will be great!
Anyone else having cravings...I love love love lemon slushes and anything lemon flavored, and still can't stand even the thought of chicken, which I usually like!
