So happy it's Friday. Finally braves going to the gym last night. The class was brilliant, she tailored all the exercises for me and I really enjoyed it. Not sure why I was so nervous. Not muh to report on the pregnancy side. 11 weeks today! Looking forward to this weekend. Very sad I know but going to see the big reunion concert - cant wait :)
Hope everyone is well and has a lovely day.

Hi LD the gym class sound great and congrats on the 11 w mark
AFM just been for my scan I was a nervous wreck. The scan on the belly showed a sac but not much else. She told me to go and empty my bladder by which time I was ready for the worst and already trying not to cry. I can back for the internal and have a healthy 6w 6d baby which is 1 day off what I thought I was at but its early morning so there's a whole day of growing to go. By this point I was sobbing, the woman was lovely and gave me two scans.
Absolutely over the moon :) xx

Little Dude glad you enjoyed the class and congrats on 11weeks!
BLL that's great news. Did you get a photo?
AFM 12 weeks today! My scan is Thursday because I pros phoned it. Started to get nervous now! Think I've convinced my H on a new pram. Can't wait to order it now. Off to soft play again today
Have a great day everyone x

LD, gym sounds good, I need to get back to it but might wait til after my scan. Don't want to loose my muscles though!
BLL, that's brilliant news! Will you be getting rescanned soon?
Afm, tired as ever but I have a nice weekend to look forward to. Meal out tonight for FILs birthday, open air theatre with a friend tomorrow and then lunch with family on Sunday. My boy is stopping at my mums Sunday night as I have my mw booking in appt on Monday morning.
Also been busy buying maternity clothes, I'm huge already with what looks like a proper bump :/

Congrats on the scan BLL. That's great news.
Not long until your scan. I'm nervous about mine and it's still over a week away. Won't be able to think of anything else next week. What pram did you decide on?
Isis, your weekend sounds lovely. Very jealous of the bump. I really want something to appear now.
26/07/2013 at 09:09
LD, that exercise class sounds really good, do you go to the gym a lot?
BLL omg that must have been such a mix of emotions, that's brilliant that everything looks on track.
LR, not long till your scan now, 12 weeks already, has it gone quickly? What pram are you going for?
Isis, that sounds like a lovely weekend, enjoy yourself!
AFM I'm going to meet a friend in Glasgow for lunch today, looking forward to it but given they usually end up boozy lunches I'm either going to have to come up with an excuse or fess up and I'm still in two minds. Knowing me though I won't be able to keep my mouth shut pregnancy wise I feel ok, only symptom at the mo is tiredness, although I have been getting nauseous as the day goes on. 3 weeks today till early scan, seems so far away! 1st tri is DRAGGING!
Hope everyone is ok x

LD - I'm sooooo impressed/jealous of your gym going!! Well done!
BLL - I am so delighted to hear your news! What a rollercoaster! When I had my early scan she said "I can see a sac" and then nothing for about 40 seconds!!!!!! I was freaking out as well! What a huge relief and congratulations!
LR - Happy 12 weeks! You can count the days till your scan on one hand! Exciting!
Isis - Oooo what are you seeing at the open air theatre! I have a friend going to see the Mikado at an open air thing tomorrow which is a coincidence! Have a fab weekend!
Weekender - I'm with you girl. 1st tri must be what it's like to be an elephant, pregnant for 2 years. I keep forgetting that it is actually a couple of months which in reality IS a long time. Torture though! Enjoy lunch and whatever you decide to do with the decision!
AFM I survived a booze free dinner with two friends last night without letting on. Having the car is a great excuse!! I do however have a wedding this weekend which is two of my bestest uni friends and there will be lots of old uni pals there. While I'm really looking forward to it I'm also slightly dreading being sober - I love a wee boozy wedding! I've done the wedding cake for them which is 'okay'. It's been v stressful as although I did my own it's the first time I've made such a big cake for someone else's big day!!
LR, missed you there, what pram are you getting? yay for milestone :)
LD, you don't want a bump yet! I'm only 9+4 but was about this size at 16 weeks last time! Luckily most friends know or they'd be guessing lol
weekender, first tri is rubbish
26/07/2013 at 10:38
LD - Good work going to the gym. I can't be bothered to do more than walk the dog at the moment.
BLL - Glad the scan went well for you. Must have been scary.
LR - Congrats on 12 weeks, your scan day will soon be here.
Isis - Your weekend plans sounds great. I think some of my bloating has gone down this week but my clothes still aren't fitting!
WE - It's difficult in situations like that isn't it? I've told more people than my H knows about... oops! I'm totally with you on 1st tri dragging.
SP - Hope the wedding goes well. I have a wedding in 5 weeks where I'll be sober too, not the same without booze is it?
AFM - So so glad its Friday. 2 weeks off here I come. I won't be back in until after my 12 week scan which is good.
Got my consultant appointment through as well which is right after the dating scan. Not sure what the appointment consists of but I'm guessing he won't be able to scan the heart yet.
Private scan tomorrow lunchtime as well so its all go here. Hopefully it will all be ok and I can start to relax a bit more.

Hurrah for it being Friday but boo because it means my week off is coming to an end and I was getting used to slobbing about not doing much (or 'resting' as I keep telling my OH!!!)
LD- great news about the exercise classes!
BLL- such good news about your scan, really pleased for you. when we went for my early scan she looked at my bladder first to check it was full and all I was thinking was where is the baby?!?! Heart stopping few seconds!!!
LR- Congrats on 12 weeks! Not long until your scan, how exciting!
Isis- Enjoy buying the maternity clothes!!!
Weekender- First tri is the longest 3 months of your life isn't it?!?! We're only at the stage now where we are starting to tell people and it's a mix of such relief at being able to blab and it feeling odd because we're so used to it being 'our' secret!!
SP- well done on the cake, sounds fab! I know what you mean about loving a boozy wedding, my brother's getting married 3 weeks tomorrow and part of me is mourning all the champagne I won't be drinking!!!
MrsV- Hope the private scan goes well, good news about getting the other appointments through, it's nice to feel the ball is rolling!!
AFM, I was very hormonal yesterday- lots of tears which is very unlike me! I also went a bit mad in Boots buying stretch mark cream/oils in the hope it might keep them away but I think it will be a futile effort!! Feeling a bit more myself today and OH is taking me for lunch which is probably just what's needed! Hoping to go for a swim this afternoon, then chill out tonight. Not much planned this weekend, telling our grandparents our news which I'm looking forward to :)
26/07/2013 at 11:05
Oh what creams/oils did you buy Rose?? I've been thinking about this too. At the moment it would be an effort to keep away stretch marks from all the food I'm consuming but useful nonetheless! Thoroughly enjoy seeing your grandparents! Very special.
Mrs V - I'm insanely jealous of your time off!! How lovely. What are your plans? Make sure you pop back on after tomorrow and let us know how you get on. It'll be lovely to see your wee wriggler! Is your dating scan before 11 weeks? I was just looking at your ticker!
26/07/2013 at 11:32
Rose I need to start using some cream, I just keep forgetting!
SP - I'm just chilling out and meeting up with friends on the first week as H is working and then we are off to a cottage for the second week with the dog to the Forest of Dean. Hopefully weather will hold out.
Dating scan is when I think I'll be 11+3 but I guess I'll find out tomorrow if my dates are correct!
26/07/2013 at 11:37
SP, flash the cake! Enjoy the wedding (being sober is rubbish though! )
MrsV, good luck for tomorrow and enjoy your time off! You got any plans? Report back tomorrow after the scan xx
Rose, enjoy your lunch out, and telling your grandparents. What creams did you buy? I used a Clarins oil last time and got no stretch marks, could be coincidence but ill be slathering it on again this time!
26/07/2013 at 13:20
I got bio oil and that cocoa butter one but specifically for stretch marks... my plan is one in the morning and one in the evening- possibly overkill but worth a shot! I'm sure it won't stop them but I am hopeful it might subdue them somewhat?!? I like the sound of the clarins one... maybe I'll put that on my wish list!!
26/07/2013 at 13:23
If you're going to get stretch marks then there's little you can do about it, I believe they can be hereditary too so if your mum has them then you're more likely to get them. I only had them at the bottom of my bump last time and right at the end so they're at least hidden in a bikini.
26/07/2013 at 13:25
True! My mum didn't really get them but I did in my teenage years hence why I'm going to give the oils a shot. I fully expect to end up with them though and have wasted my money
26/07/2013 at 13:57
just wanted to pop myhead in and say hi! had a scan last weekend at 9+1 and all ok, saw little leg buds moving about which was mega weird but also very cute! sickness is still quite bad, been sick 8 times this mornnig and that was before 11am!
