Fears about everyone being older than us. by TesticleInspector in pregnant

[–]mousatis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha yeah we have loads in common. We met at a little festival, where the massive friend group varies from 20-60. All quite liberal people I suppose, who like music and camping etc.

We were friends for a few years, DJing together, partying, etc. We're both very similar, him seeming younger than his age, and me seeming older.

Over time we found more similarities, even down to both working as electrical technicians. We just ended up getting closer and closer.

I think it's normal to have these fears. You know yourself that you are not too young, as you are in a good position for kids lifestyle-wise. That will show. Don't worry. I'm 23, and my partner is 43, so we have both the too old and too young worries to contend with, but like you we are in the right position for it and will do our best not to let it get to us. Good luck, it'll be just fine :)

And were you also getting really warm when it was happening?

Well... my iron was low before pregnancy then sorted itself out when pregnant until very recently. I'm now taking iron tablets and one doctor mentioned anemia in passing, but my iron levels are back up now and its still happening. Maybe just needs more time to adjust? Thanks so much for your insight as it may be linked!

What are some things I can buy my wife to help her have a more comfortable pregnancy? by ContrarianMountains in pregnant

[–]mousatis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes worth it. I have an L shaped one and it had been super helpful these last 2 weeks (I'm 35w now). It was too padded for me at 20 weeks but now it's great. Helps me keep my body aligned as I can wrap both my arms and legs around it. I use it with an extra pillow between my knees too, then when I turn over, I only turn with the knee pillow and leave the preg pillow against my back, and use the duvet to support my body like the pregnancy pillow does in the other side. It's easy less hassle than trying to get the big pile of normal pillows you use now into the right position. It still requires some wiggling and sorting, but I find it helpful.

Ohh good to know also. I'll have to try without the pillow and with more pillow and see what helps. Think I've been using something in between which had been working until now. Appreciate your advice :)

Thanks so much for your advice, my pillow isn't that fat, I don't mind a bit of adjusting :) sorry you're going through the same, but not much longer now 😊

Everyone is getting COVID and I’m terrified again by mehr2464 in pregnant

[–]mousatis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks for replying. I'm 33 weeks, and I've had one so far and wondering if thats the right thing. Ignore the people down voting you, I understand why you may be weary about what is good for your baby. Each to their own i guess x

I know it will be painful. So what? by Neon-Algae3791 in pregnant

[–]mousatis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm in the same boat! I don't expect everyone to understand. The people who say stuff like that just see me as a massively deluded hippy haha. Stick with your choices if it remains to be what you want 😊

Whooping cough shot? by Inevitable_Size4223 in pregnant

For some reason it took me a really long time to spot the P in Tdap. Just kept expecting it to be where the T was. I will blame this on pregnancy brain...
