Morning ladies, how are we all? Good weekends?
AR, good luck for your scan, what time is it at? Will be thinking of you
Good weekend here, apart from some pink discharge again yesterday. It hasn't come to anything though and since Fridays scan showed all is ok I'm not too worried. Got booking appt with midwife this morning, so I'll mention to her. Having to take the toddler with me, wish me luck! I've got the ipad and some colouring stuff to take oh and snacks for bribery so hopefully she''ll sit nicely!
Hope everyone is doing well and having nice days xx

Good luck with appointment WE.
AR - hope to hear from you soon.
I feel wretched, boss comes back off holiday today and a massive deadline (most important since I joined the company) looms. Things could get horrible and all I feel capable of is laying in bed eating Ritz biscuits and stroking my dog. Went to work y/day to try and catch up but ended up coming home to bed. Feeling teary and then I try and remember how far up the Pregnancy Symptoms List mood swings is, lol.

AR- hope the scan goes well.
Weekender- hope your app goes well and you can keep little one entertained.
Counter- hope things improve for you. Don't worry about getting teary, I have already!
AFM- ew monday! had a busy weekend for bil 21st. Getting quite tired now and woke up in the night with restless legs. Keep getting a sort of pressure In my tum, assume its everything stretching etc.
Hi to all that follow :)
19/08/2013 at 08:28
WE yes definitely mention it to your MW. Good luck with the booking in appointment.
Counter - Hope your day goes quickly and you manage to get some work done.
Bertie - Yes all normal, you will probably get all lots of weird pains in the next couple of weeks!
AR - Hope you are ok and the scan goes well. Lots of good luck vibes to you.
AFM - Monday morning :( Busy day so hopefully it will go quickly. Best news this morning is that I think my hair loss has eased up, fingers crossed everyone!! Think I might tell my office today but ask them to keep quiet, it probably the worst kept secret ever.
19/08/2013 at 08:44
I'm at the hospital now. Scan is in half an hour. Terrified. Will try and update later.
19/08/2013 at 08:47
*CRASH* thinking of you AR, hoping for good news x
19/08/2013 at 09:01
Everyone is rooting for you AR xx
19/08/2013 at 09:08
Good luck for this morning WE - it does sound like nothing but always best to mention it - fingers crossed the bribery works for your booking in hope all goes well!
Oh counter sorry you feel so rubbish, do your work know you're pregnant? They do have to take it into account and can't penalise you for it (I know in theory and practice can be different but I hope they don't make things too difficult)
AR been thinking of you all weekend lovely hope there is good news today will check in and we're here for anything at all massive vibes xxx
HI Bertie yes I've had some strange stomach feelings and it can be a little sore. Glad you had a good weekend sounds like fun!
Mrs V glad the hair loss seems to ahve slowed, I'd tell whoever you feel comfortable with - and really hope todays goes quickly for you (and me!)
Fig you nearly gave me a start then when I saw latest post by you was all ready with the congratulations!!!
AFM had a ncie restful weekend witht he inlaws literally look them food shopping and watched trash TV but I feel awful today - was sick for the first time this morning and got out of bed an hour late! Luckily I'm usually really early into work so just made it on time but I could defintiely have a duvet day - I'm savinf it in case I get actually worse though plus I'm the only one in my boss is on hols.
I think the security of my early scan is wearing off - I've got my scan date through though 12th September so will hold on until then xxx

Weekender, hope booking in goes well, don't envy you taking a toddler! I've avoided it thus far and I think he'll mainly be in school now for my appointments.
Counter, hope you're feeling better soon. There's no shame in taking a day off if you need to, can you confide in your boss?
Bertie, sounds like a fun weekend. Pains are normal, it will settle down.
Mrs v, I really hope the hair loss has settled down for you, sounds like it could be hormonal then? I'm sure work will be delighted! It's so hard keeping a secret though.
AR, thinking of you x
Grif, glad you had a good weekend but sorry you're feeling rubbish today. I was like that, the reassurance of my early scan wore off but I needn't have worried and I'm sure you don't need to either.
Afm, still in bed! H only just left for work so he let me have a lie in! Much needed after a busy weekend celebrating Jude's birthday. I can feel my uterus above my pelvic bone now :) need to make my 16w appt today and I have consultant on Thursday as they thinks son was low birth weight so I might have some arguing to do. Also debating booking a gender scan, what do you think?
19/08/2013 at 09:27
Gender scan - we talked about this last night, we're a No. We want the surprise and excitement. I didn't find out with my son either. BUT if I had a houseful of blue things/pink things, I think I might be tempted to find out.
I also think I don't want to know because I am as desperate this time around for a boy as I was last time for a girl, lol. Best not to know! (I know it's not PC to have a preference, but I just DO!)
19/08/2013 at 09:43
AR - Thinking of you, please let us know how you get on
WE - good luck at your booking appointment
Counter - remember work has to come second now, don't go over doing it
Bertie - i had lots of stretching early on, pulling etc
Mrs V - awsome news about the hair loss, long may it continue
Grif - Hope the sickness doesn't get to bad for you
ISIS - how do you feel your uterus? i wanted to have a little gentle feel of my belly but im to afriad of squashing the baby? what am i supposed to feel?
AFM - had an ok weekend, still feel sick but no actual sickness so thats awesome, had a really hormonal weekend one minute i was upset then the next i was angry and fed up for no reason what so ever! went out saturday night up london which was quite exhausting! got reading festival this weekend which i am not really looking forward to as the walking is gonig to kill me!
on my own at work today so thats a bit crap!
19/08/2013 at 09:44
Sorry to crash the tri thread ladies, just wanted to wish AR lots of sticky vibes, i hope you have a positive update for us xxx
19/08/2013 at 09:49
Nlh, no sickness is brilliant! Bet you feel loads better. You can feel it at the top of your pelvic bone, well I'm assuming its uterus. Usually it'd just be squidgy but you can feel it firm. You won't hurt the baby, the sonographer presses on far harder than I do!
Counter, we're definitely finding out, I'm the most impatient person but not sure about a private scan to find out. Could take my son which is a bonus.
19/08/2013 at 09:54
Isis, if you're going to find out I think a separate scan, with your son, would be a lovely thing to do if you can afford it. :)
19/08/2013 at 09:56
There is a heartbeat!!! Will update properly when I get home.
19/08/2013 at 09:59
YAYYYYYYY!!! So happy for you. xx
19/08/2013 at 10:01
****crash***** so pleased for you AR. after my message to you the other night I was really hoping or this outcome x
19/08/2013 at 10:06
