Coco - I know! I need more sleep! Fingers crossed for the house. House buying/selling is so stressful but worth it in the end.
Pickle pants - Hello and welcome to 1st Tri!
AFM - Gah Monday! I can't wait for the tiredness to pass, I really am a zombie! I found one of the twins' heartbeats with my sonoline b doppler this week. Ever so quiet, like a tiny steam train in my belly. Was very reassuring and cute! Also waiting for my 12 week scan letter which will (fingers crossed) arrive this week. Hi to all that follow!

Coco - hope the house comes through for you, would be great to be in before no 2 arrives!
PicklePants - Hi! Welcome to first Tri! How far along are you? Im up at 6am as standard so jealous of your normal 9am starts!
Ducky - Tiredness is the pits! How lovely to listen to your babies heartbeats :)
AFM - had a rough sicky sicky wkend. I cried sore on Friday to OH - I just want ONE day of feeling normal. Its so hard trying to function at work etc. I know this sounds ungrateful and I dont mean to be like that but its really taking its toll.
Like you Ducky I am also waiting for Scan app - we have chose mondays as it suits OH shifts (plus I'll get a long wkend haha) so I imagine the earliest will be 17th Feb which would make me 12 + 3. Unless we are lucky & get in next week. We are just dying to tell people & its so hard keeping it secret, I told a few close friends on Saturday and they were absolutely fab, one cried she was so happy for me! Also got to try out a friends iCandy - LOVE! As soon as Peach 3 is out I am getting it ordered & paying deposit!
Hi to all who follow - Saisi massive luck for your scan :)

Saisi - good luck for your scan! Is this your 12 week one?
Coco - houses are stressful, when will you hear?
PicklePants - I only got my bfp on Saturday and already I've noticed I'm up earlier, this does not bode well!! I also don't normally need to get up too early as I start at 9 and am only a 15min drive from work so I tend to roll out of bed at 8. I'm rattling around the house this morning!
Hi Ducky!! As the babies get bigger will it be possible to differentiate between the twins heartbeats or will you never know which ones which?
SaSaSi sorry you're feeling sicky, hope your scan comes through soon.
AFM still not quite real yet, and apologies to anyone I confused with my name change yesterday but I was spotted far too quickly so I need to be a bit more anon!

Congrats Maltesers and welcome to 1st Tri :)

Morning everyone. Cant believe its Monday already :(
Coco - good luck for the house! Hope they accept your offer!
PP - sorry you are waking early. I think its our minds in overdrive (that and needing to get up to pee!).
Ducky - Think I'm going to order a doppler today :) hope your scan letter comes through soon. Mine should hopefully be here this week too!
SaSaSi - sorry you've had a crappy weekend. I bet it was nice telling your friends :)
Maltesers - welcome to first tri!
AFM: I feel shocking today. I have been running to the loo every 5 minutes this morning to be sick. God knows how I've made it in to work but if it continues I may go home as I just feel so weak and dehydrated. I haven't had a morning as bad as this before. Went to M&S yesterday and bought a stretchy work dress and skirt in the next size up so hopefully I'll feel a bit more comfortable for a bit. Also I told my brother yesterday and we went round H's parents, sister's and brother's to tell them. They were really excited (its their first grandchild/niece/nephew). I'm feeling a bit stressed/anxious about it as I feel like now there is even more pressure on me that the pregnancy goes ok. I know thats stupid but I cant help it! 10 weeks today! x

Not sure I fit in here just yet ladies, maybe I'll wait a bit longer before I join officially, it feels quite scary that I'm posting but I just wanted to know that I am very much looking forward to hopegully becoming a regular. For those of you not familiar with my story, H and I TTC for over 4 years, after tests discovered I had bilateral hydrosalpinx, we started our first cycle of IVF 2 weeks before xmas, and at the weekend we got our dream BFP, it still feels surreal, but I have a viability scan booked on the 24th Feb, so hoping that they hear a strong heartbeat and following that I promise I'll become a permanent fixture.

Saisi, good luck with the scan xx
Coco, great news finding a house!
Pickle, my sleep patterns are all over the place, so who knows?!
Ducky, that's great about the Doppler. Mine is on order :-)
Sasasi, good luck booking the scan x
"Maltesers" how's life undercover??
Browny, congrats on double figures xx
CaireLou, just huge huge congratulations xx
AFM feeling a little better. Bad news is stress about the work assessment tomorrow, having to prove I can do my job. However, massively overshadowed by the fab news that...
We are going to the Maldives!!! Next month!! We have a Jacuzzi water villa booked here http://www.komandoo.com and I can't wait :-) Flying on 30th March, yay!
03/02/2014 at 11:08
Welcome CL!!!!!!! So excited to see you here lovely :) I'll be keeping everything crossed for your scan and to see you here regularly! Take it easy and look after yourself xxx
BF - I am so jealous. I need to get on and organise something, redundancy rounds should be over by the end of the month so I'm hoping I can start to plan things then. Good luck for your assessment tomorrow.
03/02/2014 at 12:16
HI ClaireLou!! I've changed my name but you know me from hitched, we were both due to test the same day. Here's hoping for a very boring 8months or so
BF haha I feel really sneaky being "undercover", having an identity crisis! So jealous of your holiday!!!
03/02/2014 at 12:37
Maltesers - Hello lovely, I'm 90% certain I know who you are but to clarify we are freinds on facebook right? Huge Congratulations!!!! and yes here's to a very uneventful 8 months!
Hello folks (again)
Browny - get yourself home & feet up! No need to put yourself through work when you are so ill.
ClaireLou - absolutely delighted for you!!! Amazing news!!! And a huge welcome to First Tri!! So pleased for you both.
BF - great news on holiday! Although are we allowed jacuzzis when pregnant?! I dont know!
OH is off today & our scan app has came through - Monday week!! So delighted, cant wait to shout it from the rooftops!
03/02/2014 at 12:53
Hi SaSaSi, no, we can't go in jacuzzis, but all the water villas just have them anyway. I will be more than happy just lounging about in the sea! I think it actually means the baths in the villas have jacuzzi function, but don't have to use it. I just want some relaxation time while I still can!
Great news that your scan date is through!
03/02/2014 at 13:15
ClaireLou - yes we are fb friends! x
03/02/2014 at 13:18
Maltesers.... Your logo is such a tease.... all I want now is Maltesers! :)
03/02/2014 at 14:01
Haha! Do it! I should have really called myself Small Geezers as that's what they are known as in our house

Diving on for a min –
Coco – Good luck with the house!
Picklepants – it will change – it will get even earlier!!!!! 6 is great!!!
Saisi – good luck – thinking of you
Ducky – I’m with you on tiredness – I’m in bed by 9 every night. I’m a fun girl at the mo!
Sasasi – I’m with you wanting to tell people now
Maltesers – congrats!!!! Welcome and wishing you a quiet and uneventful 9 months
Browny – Hope you feel better soon. The sickness is easing off with me thank God
Claire – congrats! Thrilled to see a BFP after such a journey!
Barefoot – hi and thanks for making me jealous!!!!
Hope everyone is ok and those with scans get good reassuring news.
I’m feeling shocking – emotionally though – I feel like I am in major limbo – we have our first trimester screening (for Downs syndrome etc) next Wednesday and our normal next scan with my doctor on Tuesday.
For me it’s the last hurdle before being able to 100% believe/accept that we are having a baby. No idea how I will survive until then. All I want is a healthy baby and be able to tell everyone and my daughter.
God, I’m at work and could start bawling – terrible.
Sorry for being a moan xx

sorry I dont have time for personals today - at work, so a quick update from me.
Had a lovely weekend :) Today have been in training, but suffering with the tiredness as so many of us seem to be! I thought it was just me that was getting up early now that i'm pg!
Today is the 1st time i've actually worn maternity trousers, and i'm so glad that i have done...they are so comfy. I'm only 10wks, but already think that i'm showing quite a lot. I know that you show early in subsequent pregnancies, but was only 19 weeks with my angel baby and didnt think i'd gotten that big! I'm feeling huge already!
Not got my scan until the 24th....I hate waiting for this. Its stressing me out loads - how do normal pregnant people wait until 12 weeks without going nuts!
All in all, i'm feeling better than i did in my previous pregnancy, but still get so worried, but guess thats normal.
I cant wait to tell people now. Work knows and so do most of our very close family and friends, but looking foward to the FB announcement!
anyway, should really go and do some work instead of dreaming that i was snoozing at my desk!

Hi all, just a quickie, congrats to Claire! I have two questions I hope you can help me with;
1. I got my scan date for 3 weeks time, (was hoping for it to be at half term but never mind.) Does anyone know how long it takes for the scan, need to work out if I can return to work that day or not.
2. Plus with my scan letter I got another letter saying I was to have an apt with a consultant at the hospital when ill be 17/18 weeks, any idea what this is for? Nothing was mentioned about this at the booking in apt.
