Noooo.. Part2

So now I have time I am able to finish my post from last night. :)

Last night I wrote about cramps I had and in particular one that woke me up early hours, and typically, it happened again last night! Woke up in pain with cramps and needed to pee. Went pee, came back to bed and it went away.
I think I may have to stop drinking before bed time because my body can't hold it long enough till I wake up like it used to :(

I haven't really had any other symptoms. Theres been a few times lately where I've eaten and then felt dizzy but nothing extreme or nausea. DP on the other hand pointed out to me that since the weekend we conceived he has been feeling off and has a vomited a few times, which funnily enough happened the last time I was pregnant too. :) Good man taking my morning sickness!

Someone commented on a previous post re:vitamins etc, and I said i'd talk about them. So here is a list of what I take and whats in them, i would LOVE your feedback on amounts and good/bad things to take. :)

1 Folic acid 5mg
1 Iron Fizz contains: Vitamin C 50mg, Iron 5mg, Folic Acid 300mcg, Vitamin B12 10mcg. (Says suitable for pregnant women)

I also have some Iodine tablets but i'm not sure about taking them?

I have been thinking lots about my reading I got, see the tabs at top of page if want to read it, and how April would be the due date for this little bubba. All the other women in my TTC group who got readings have had theirs match up, and it makes me a little excited. But then I feel stupid, why should I get excited over something so sceptical?

Sigh. I just hold on to hope and think "This IS it. This is the one!" and take every day as it comes. As I get further along, closer to that 8week mark where I've previously started spotting then I will panic a bit more. Till then, I can't change anything.

I am holding off ringing my midwife because I feel I'll jinx it all, and think that somehow if I don't contact her I will make it through. But at the same time, I really want to see my blip in an ultrasound and have someone there to take some of this stress off me and calm me down. Perhaps I will ring tomorrow and make appointment.


  1. Are you taking a general prenatal vitamin? I take a prenatal-multi, prenatal DHA, and acidophilus. I have also started to take the thyroid medication to bring my TSH dawn slightly. What is the iodine for?

    So many things to be anxious about in early pregnancy after you have had a few losses. :( I hope the next few weeks go fast for both of us!

  2. just wanted to let you know i get the cramping when i have to pee too, sometimes randomly on top of it, but i can't seem to hold it or i will get crampy. my nurse said it was all good and normal :-) for the random times, i think it's gas because sometimes it starts higher up for me. never had it before this pregnancy tho! yay for april due dates :-)

  3. You definitely might want to look into a multi-prenatal vitamin. Most have so much stuff in them I can't list it all in one comment lol. And DHA, that's important for their little brains and eyes. Making an appt would be a good thing, you really want to get all your bloodwork checked out to make sure everything's going well, especially progesterone. Mine was high at first then started dropping and had to get it checked or they would never have known and I might have miscarried early. Always stay on the safe side, don't worry about jinxing yourself, get the best possible care as soon as you can :-)

  4. Found this list on webmd:

    What to Look for in Prenatal Vitamins

    Look for a prenatal vitamin that includes:

    400 micrograms (mcg) of folic acid. (my doc recommends 800 or more)
    400 IU of vitamin D.
    200 to 300 milligrams (mg) of calcium.
    70 mg of vitamin C.
    3 mg of thiamine.
    2 mg of riboflavin.
    20 mg of niacin.
    6 mcg of vitamin B12.
    10 mg of vitamin E.
    15 mg of zinc.
    17 mg of iron.

  5. Oh wow, thanks ladies. :) I shall do some research on prenatals available here and go purchase some tomorrow!

  6. I am a big fan of the MegaFoods prenatal. It is gentle on the stomach and doesn't contain any fillers!

  7. I'm not sure you'd be able to get that in New Zealand, never heard that brand.
    I'm looking at getting Blackmores Pregnancy & Breastfeeding tablets
