Hi kaylz23, welcome to MadeForMums and congratulations. Sorry to hear you're finding it tough at the moment: we remember those hormonal surges really well - they can make your feelings so intensified can't they? Have you had your first scan yet?

Had my booking appointment this morning so finally official!! Yay. 1 hour of every question under the sun, 3 vials of blood, 1 urine sample, height, weight, blood pressure and pulse done. Next midwife appointment booked just waiting for scan appointments to come through and to see if I need keeping an eye on by a consultant because my son was premature.
Huge pack of notes, leaflets, numbers and bits of paper I'll have to cart round with me but I suppose at least it's comprehensive. Maybe this time I'll get to see what the delivery suite looks like!

Aww thanks Danielle, they can im all over the place at the minute but hopefully it will calm down soon and yes ive had my first scan, i couldn't believe it when i seen the baby for the first time, i have Polycystic ovaries so i didnt think i could ever have children, me and my partner are over the moon, i just didnt realise it could have such a big effect on your moods x

I'm starting to realise after this weekend and the issues I had how crappy my midwife is. I have been given no emergency contacts and when I went for the scan I didn't have any notes so they did what they could and I new have a set of notes which is from the wrong county....i also spoke to her yesterday and she gave me a number to ring to find out about my bloods and it was the wrong number and I had some woman having a go at me saying it's not her job!
On the plus side, I have made it through the day without having to take any extra sickness tablets!!! Won't get my hopes up JUST yet!

Can I just say how proud of ourself we should be to have made it to a double thread! I think this had about 450 comments when I joined and what a pleasure it has been to share the last few weeks with you all.
I am 11 weeks tomorrow, I think ill be about 13+3 when I have my scan. Sad to say my sickness has gone nowhere I have been up all through the night again I am eating like an actual bottomless pit! I still have not gained any weight and I worried they will penalize me for this but what can I do.
Welcome to MFM kaylz23 and congratulations on your pregnancy.
Love starting to see everyone's scan photo's!
Have a good day all x

Sorry your not happy with your midwife MrsG can you ask for a new one? Or nag them for better info? This is a picture of everything I got yesterday and it's pretty similar to what I had last time. I'm no expert but maybe ask a gp for help/advice if you get no joy with the midwife? Hope you find some reassurance soon x

Scan day for me! Got a due date of 8th April :). Earlier than I thought. My minds been put to rest now, she said all looked well & we've got a very wriggily baby! I panicked I'd not drank enough and I'd actually drank too much lol.
No cravings here. Still haven't got much appetite.
03/10/2017 at 15:22

Great news NJR - so nice having a scan and seeing all is going well :-)
I have a real thing for chip shop chips with lots of salt and vinegar - but also quite like satsumas, one day I dislike something and the next day I love it - I think i am driving my husband crazy!! Can’t wait to get back to eating properly - I hate vegetables at the moment, they make me gag :-(
