It is lovely to move up to the pregnancy forum at last. I could have moved here earlier but no internet. I am 16 weeks now and loving it.

Hello, congrats! Have you had much sickness etc? Will you be finding out the sex? xxx

No sickness only dry skin and headaches. I had a migraine for 3 days! We are waiting to find out the sex at birth. The first few weeks I missed wine and soft boiled eggs so much but now I am not fussed. A friend of mine is also pregnant and she went off all food where I did not feel a change at all. I did another preg test at 6 weeks just to make sure as i felt more or less the same.

Lol, I have the dry skin thing too, no matter how much water I drink and moisturiser I go through. Can't stop craving pate and soft cheese though, so will be pigging out big time once baby arrives.
My MIL had no sickness or symptoms with both her pregnancies, whereas my mum had sickness 24/7 with both me and little bro. It's amazing how different everyones experiences are. xxx

I also have dry skin- hadn't even thought it could be the pregnancy!!?
I had a little nausea but other wise ok-just really tired!
Good luck for the rest of your pregnancy!

Colic & reflux! Help!
Hi all! My LO is 3 weeks & 1 day. Around 11 days ago, I recognised signs of colic and my HV confirmed she believed he was suffering with colic too. It always began at 9pm for a few hours. We changed baby bottles and began giving him Infacol. We noticed a slight improvement but he was still screaming! We battled on as Infacol takes a while to work. Sunday evening he began crying at 6pm and it carried on all night and at 10:30am on Monday, I took him to the doctors, still crying and screaming 😭. The minute the doctor called us, he fell asleep. She thinks he also has reflux so gave us infant gaviscon. She recommended us trying Colic cow & gate also. So, we began with Gaviscon and started Colief instead (the dr didn’t rate Infacol).. with the new milk and he slept wonderfully! The bout of colic that evening lasted 20 mins and that was it! Next night (last night), it came back with a vengeance. He’s screamed all night, he’s refused milk, he’s drank the odd 2oz here and there, he’s straining and crying, his legs and arms are wild, he eventually managed a poo which was brown and sticky! 💩 it’s now 10am and he has finally fallen asleep - in my arms. Ive booked him in with a chiropractor as I’ve heard great things and I’m still using colic bottles and Colief.. please can someone offer any advice. I’m at a total loss. I’ve not slept in a fortnight and I really can’t watch him in agony until this stops - in a few months time 😳😩
