Good morning ladies! Happy Monday!
How was everyone's weekends? Mine was good bug I stayed up a bit too late last night and Mr Ducky had a very early start so I feel a but like I had no sleep! Never mind, I wi be in bed by 9pm tonight to catch up!

Seems a bit early to join the 1st tri with only being 4 weeks but hopefully it'll start to feel more real if I'm here! I know the feeling about the sleep. My H is away in Holland for 2 days & he decided to pack around midnight, helpful, then he woke me when he came to bed a few hours later. I then felt a bit dizzy when I closed my eyes so took awhile to get to sleep as opposed to my hubby who just fell asleep. He then woke me when he got up. Looks like I'm turning into a light sleeper. Hope you manage to get your early night tonight

Ducky - hope you get that early night tonight.
BK - great to 'see' you here. Congratulations again. Tri buddies again :-)
AFM, we had a busy weekend and I'm shattered now. Went out with friends Sat night and F had a little sleepover with his cousins. He was beyond exhausted when we brought him home yesterday so we ended up with an unsettled evening. I'm not sure if he's now teething or coming down with a cold! Not much planned today thankfully! Hi to all who follow x

Ducky - I'm finding early nights are a !UST! Hope today is an easy day for you
Blackat - hope you have an easy day too and the light sleeping was a one off!
Weather girl - sounds like a good weekend, enjoy your quiet day.
Half term this week, yay! I'm so tired at the mo No matter how much sleep I get I'm still tired by 8:30! H is off this week too so we are going to try and do bits of diy that need finishing around the house. Did another cbd this morning (it was a 2 pack) and it now says 3+ weeks which is good. I'm currently swinging between being really excited and wanting to look at baby stuff to not being convinced that it's real or that it won't work out. I think I'm just nervous after k as my pregnancy was perfect, yet there were still problems. I'm hoping that the booking in appointment at the end of next week will put me at ease.

Ducky - hopefully you'll get that early night tonight.
Blackkat - Lovely that you're here! Sounds like rubbish nights sleep though, hope it's just a one off.
WG - hopefully F is just teething rather than poorly, at least you can have a nice restful day today x
A positive post from me today (lots of negative I can talk about, but that's just repeating myself and I'm fed up of it!) I decided to get my doppler out the other day (tbh, didn't think it would still work, but put new battery in and it's fine), tried it on Thursday and Friday briefly but couldnt' find anything other than my heartbeat, then made sure I'd drank enough water and tried again Sat night and managed to find a fast little heartbeat straight away! Turned it off leaving it in place and waited for MrDD to come up, then it had disappeared again! Tried a few minutes and he gave up listening, then as soon as he'd gone I found it again, so he rushed back for a little listen - I know there's chances of other complications, but it really has reassured me now I've heard a heartbeat that he/she is at least there! Quite surprised really since I was only 9+6 on Saturday so very early to find a hb with a doppler!

Sorry bunny, missed you there - was so slow at typing! Must be that element of worry for you after what happened with K, although every pregnancy is different and hopefully you'll be well looked after. Enjoy your week off xx

Ducky - hope you get an early night tonight and today is not too weary for you
Blackcat - Welcome and congratulations again
WG - hope F is in better form today and you's have a lovely monday
Bunny - Enjoy your week off with OH - try to keep yourself busy and think only positive thoughts - easier said than done I know but its much better for you & baby. You will get lots of support on here x
Deedee - how lovely to hear little ones heartbeat! Hope you are feeling slightly less sick
AFM - well I dont know whether to stay here or go to 2nd Tri! Due dates given are 22nd Aug & 29 Aug. I dont feel ready for 2nd Tri!
Was quite sick over wkend but took things easy yesterday so better form today. This sickness is harsh!

Ducky - I've been going to bed by 8.30pm most nights so hope you get an early night tonight.
Blackcat - Hi!! Congratulations again.
WG - Hope you have a relaxing day today after your busy weekend.
Bunny - Enjoy your week off and sending you positive vibes for a careful pregnancy.
DeeDee - How fantastic to find the heartbeat, I think I'm going to get myself a Doppler in a few weeks.
SaSaSi - Sorry to hear you've been sick, hopefully it'll go soon. Those dates are quite different!
AFM - I had my stall at the weekend, sold 2 bits but after the cost of the stall I made a slight profit, I sell handmade pictures. I've got an early scan this Friday which I'm equally excited and nervous about. I do feel sick but haven't actually been sick so am worrying myself that's a bad sign, guess I should just be glad I'm not being sick rather than worrying about it.

Didn't manage to get on at the weekend, I was busy doing not very much and by the time i had time to come on here, I fell asleep!
Ducky - nothing wrong with an early night, it's all I do at the moment.
BK - welcome :) I joined here at four weeks too, feels like ages ago!
WG - have a nice chilled day
Bunny - keeping everything crossed for you.
Deedee - awesome work on the heartbeat. I don't think I'm going to get a Doppler as I'll probably do it wrong and then panic!
Sasasi - sorry you're still sick, can't believe you'll be off to second tri soon!
PP - well done, sounds like a good weekend. Good luck at the scan. I haven't been sick at all but I get waves of nausea. It's horrible but could be a lot worse!
AFM - I'm feeling pretty queasy today and I can't get over how tired I feel. I'm ok most of the day but I get home from work and I can't focus or anything! Counting down to my MW appt next week, and also to having my house back to normal after having the bathroom done! Builders make so much mess!

Hey girls. Sorry i've been AWOL - still struggling with pregnancy and although I'm not posting I am keeping tabs on you all. I am sorry I've not been doing personals or making a proper effort. Miss you all and love seeing different names appearing and names disappearing as they move on to 2nd tri. Hope you are all doing well ladies x
17/02/2014 at 12:33
Morning dee dee that's amazing that you heard the heartbeat! I was talking about maybe getting a heartbeat monitor to h. His response was why do we need that? I know where my heartbeat is! He didn't realise it was for baby!
Sasasi you can stay here as long as you like! Which date do you think is the more accurate one? Hope your still feeling okay today.
Pickle pants - that's good that you sold some things. Exciting that you've got an early scan. I wouldn't worry about not being sick, not every one is.
17/02/2014 at 12:35
Sorry spent so long typing I. Issued people.
Gavi hopefully the tiredness passes soon and enjoy your new bathroom!
Purple star hello! Hope you are doing OK xx
17/02/2014 at 13:08
Deedee - I have a doppler too and love finding a heartbeat. At the moment I can't tell if I've found both or just the first one from a different angle! Nice to know they are still cooking away in there. Their hb is getting really strong and loud compared to two weeks ago.
Blackcat - Massive welcome!! It isn't too early, you're in the first tri!!!!
WG - Hope a lazy day gives you back some energy. I'm always most tired on a Monday when I should be rested. Crazy.
Bunny - Woo for half term *jealous*
SaSaSi - Eeek almost second tri time!
Pickle - well done on your stall. And good luck for your scan!
Gavin - The tiredness is the worst. I have, and still am, struggling big time!
Purple star - Hello!
AFM - This morning went quite quickly so hoping the afternoon does too. Babies are true little monkeys and loving fruit at the moment. Anything juicy. I've been eating loads of grapes, strawberries, raspberries and satsumas. All the stuff that isn't in season and costs loads! Better than rubbish I guess although my tummy isn't too happy at being subjected to so much soluble fibre! Tmi sorry!
