PostSubject: Here we go again!   Sat 22 May 2010, 7:51 pm

I am now 8 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I had made a decision to change hospitals and consultants this time round as i felt last time round alot of things were missed during my first pregnancy with Gerard. I felt that pre eclampsia could have been diagnosed ealier and since i read through my notes it confirms this even more for me.

But this time will be different as i have a new care team who already are taking good care of me. I feel more positive than i thought i would feel and more in control because this time i know what pre eclampsia is, the signs and what to look out for myself. Where as last time i hadn't even heard of pre eclampsia.

I had my first scan on Friday and everything so far seems to be fine although they have found a cyst on one of my ovaries which they have said is very common in early pregnancy and they will monitor it carefully. I also had my first consultant appointment the same day which made me feel more reassured and she has a whole plan in place for me.

I started my aspirin and folic acid before conception and have now just started on the clexane injections ( as i have factor V Leiden) which i'll have throughout my whole pregnancy. Not so keen on that.

I still feel anxious but calmer than i thought i would be. I think i was more anxious when we were TTC. So apart from the morning, noon and night sickness and not sleeping too well everything is ok and i am finding great support from this forum and from the positive stories from the lovely ladies on here.

Bell - Hi, it's C & M's friend from Sheffield!
Sorry for the belated congratulations but I have been on holiday. I just wanted you to know how over the moon I am for you that you are pg again........ and a Christmas baby too!! I didn't want to post anything on FB because I wasn't sure who knew etc.
I really hope you are keeping well and that PE keeps well and truly away for this baby.

Take it easy and keep us updated!!

Loads of love from over the water!!

C. xx.

Hi C!

Thanks we are both so excited. Everything going well so far. Am still being sick lots and lots. GP has signed me off work for a few weeks which i am quite glad about.

Am being very closely monitored this time. BP ok and no protein in urine so am happy. This pregnancy feels totally different. Last time i didn't have morning sickness and had protein from the start. So fingers crossed no PE this time.

Hopefully catch up with you and the lovely baby Jack the next time we are down in Sheffield.

Guess this means i'll not be running in the Great Yorkshire Run after all !!! What i'll do to get out of it, lol!
