Morning all! How is everyone today? Sorry I've been absent the last few days, back at work now and been shattered! Hope everyone is doing well xx

Morning BE, how's the MS? Are you feeling better?
I'm ok, get my HCG levels back this morning so keen to see what they are. I also did my 3rd CBD this morning and got 3+, still not entirely sure on my dates but I think I'm 5+1 today, I got 1-2 on the 30th of April, 2-3 on the 4th May and then 3+ today. I thought I might have OVd on the 17th so that would fit in with all those dates. Bit nausea this morning but nothing major, when did you MS start BE? (I know everyone's different).
I thought it was Friday when I woke up this morning so gutted its only Thursday!x
09/05/2013 at 08:36
Hey Mdd, ms is better than it was, still on tablets and going to bed at 8:30 every night! I had a few odd occasions of nausea around 6 weeks and then was hit with it full on at 8 weeks! The CBDs seem good :-) fx for your HCG results xx
09/05/2013 at 08:48
Morning all! Glad MS is getting better BE. I thought uit was Friday too Misdeedee! Boo!
I have my booking apt today, not really sure what its all about - maybe she will just tell me I'm making it all up?!! :o) have filled in the GIGANTIC form though! Then out for tea tonight :o)
09/05/2013 at 08:52
Glad your a bit better, no wonder your shattered being back at work. Got my levels, I think I was 5wks y'day and my levels were 5845, from what I've checked online that's within the 'norm' (albeit the scope is wide!) for 5 weeks and at least I know there's something growing in there (hopefully).
Weeme hope your app goes well, at least it will be Friday tomorrow!lol!x

Hey everyone! I also thought it was Friday, boooo to it being Thursday!
BE- glad your ms is getting better. Hopefully you're coming out of the other end now.
MDD- glad your CBd has increased, that's a good sign. I also load this morning. Only an IC, but the line appeared immediately and was darker than the test line. I've kept all my IC tests so I can see the darkness increasing. What time do you get your hcg levels back?
Weeme- my booking in appt was basically just them talking to me about medical history etc, taking bloods and booking my scan. It took about an hour.

I missed me there!!!
I'm feeling nauseous this morning, I don't know if its just hunger or if its ms. I'm shattered today as I didn't get to sleep until 11.30 last night, which is late for me on a work night. Got my early scan a week today, very nervous already.
09/05/2013 at 08:56
BE as your approaching end of 1st tri hopefully all the symptoms will bu88er off soon
MDD Your CBD results sound promisi g, glad you've managed to pinpoint OV (well narrow it down). Wish I'd done CBD like that now. Oh well. Oh and to answer yesterdays question - yes it was me who done up our lounge (last Oct). We bought a house last March that was bit 'unloved' and are gradually tarting it up :-). After the MC I decided I needed something to focus on and decided to get on with sorting out back bedroom - then once that is done the upstairs will be completed and I can paint stairwell & hall and replace totally minging carpet on stairs :-)
AFM - developed a huge itchy allergy type rash yesterday all over my boobs, tummy, back, elbows, wrists, by the time I went to bed it had spread down my legs into lady garden ..... So attractive .....but have woken up and its all gone. Very relieved!! I was half convinced I was allergic to my baby or something but now rational thought has taken over, maybe it was dust from plastering as despite workmen clearing up & me hoovering, the house did seem v.dusty.
09/05/2013 at 09:02
Gah, spent so long typing I have missed people!
Hi Weeme - the booking in app is for writing your notes - medical history etc .... You will then be stuck carrying said notes to every appointment throughout your pregnancy. They are a right pain! Well if you have a terrible memory like me they are a pain. My LO has had MMR jab but I forgot her red book on day of appointment, so looks like she hasn't had it to HV's. They always mention it.Grr. Bad mummy!
Imp, booo to nausea. Try to nibble on something to keep it at bay
09/05/2013 at 09:16
Thanks all :o) fingers crossed it all goes OK.
HF - I can sooo see me doing very similar - may need to leave it by the front door for 7 months (the form not the LO!)
Nausea sucks IMP, nibbling def seems the way forward, hope it goes soon x
09/05/2013 at 09:55
Hi Imp, the nausea is kind of reassuring though isn't it. I have an early scan a week on sat, I'm ok just now but I'll be so worried/scared at the end of next week! I actually bought a whole new 20pack of IC's when I got the positive test and have been testing everyday since they arrived on Friday, as you say I like to see the lines getting darker and the CBD's have helped give me some reassurance also.
HF I remember about the house now, good you've had something to occupy you and the rash definately sounds like it's been from the dust etc! Glad it's all gone and your lady garden is back to normal (I nearly spat out my b'fast this morning when I read that!) Yeah the CBD's have helped me narrow down my ov date (well based on when we DTD. I thought I have either ov'd on the 17th or the 23rd and given my cbd's I'm pretty sure it was the 17th now.
Not sure if anyone saw, but I got my results back, they are 5845 so seem to be within the norm for 5 weeks which I'm sure I was. I also read that when your levels are over 11,000 you 'should' see a heartbeat on a scan, so that makes me feel better about my scan next week that hopefully there will be something to see!
09/05/2013 at 10:12
Ah! fab news Missdeedee :o)
09/05/2013 at 10:46
It is reassuring but I want it to be worse *stamps feet* I hope I'm going to look back in this in a few weeks and laugh!
I don't know why I keep doing tests, it doesn't prove anything really but I can't help myself.
09/05/2013 at 11:33
Hi all, well I had my scan last night and there was a small baby and a heartbeat which we heard. Very relieved. I have our due date as 20/12 they said 24/12 but that it may change at our 12 week one. So, if you'll have me I'll be here most days now! I am feeling sick but not been sick and the usual tiredness.
I love reading everyones updates but haven't worked out how to do personals on phone unless I write it all down!
09/05/2013 at 11:43
Jennilola - congrats on positive scan :-)
09/05/2013 at 12:21
Hi all. On phone so just a quick one. Still off work due to slapped cheek at school. Got booking apt tomorrow, 19 days til 12 week scan. Nervous even tho we saw a heart beat last week! 9 weeks and 4 days now. Hi to all that follow x
09/05/2013 at 13:45
I've just realised that I have gone crackers! I've wee'd in ma pot too early (before I went to work - I mean why??)
"Hi, pleased to meet you midwife, I'm weeme and I'm an idiot".
Seriously this is me at apt 1 - I cant even imagine what state I'll be in at the end of the month :o)
09/05/2013 at 14:13
Don't worry, just wash it out under tap and do another wee :-)
My midwife appointments with baby#1 were stumbling distance from work so I frequently used to wander round w work with pots of wee in my handbag!!
09/05/2013 at 15:03
BumpEnvy - glad your MS is much better now
Missdeedee - I thought it was Friday too! How weird. You, me and Imp are wishful thinkers.
weeme - good luck at your booking appointment
Imp - FX that it's MS - and you're probably the only person that I would say that to!
HF - glad that your rash has gone, it sounds like it was nasty.
Jennilola - glad that your scan went ok, bet you're really relieved.
H and I got all over excited yesterday and started talking about names (shouldn't have done, but couldn't help it) and we realised that there are only two names in the entire world that we actually agree on and they are both boys names... we'd better be having a boy!
Also I feel really bloated but that might just be because I've eaten my entire body weight in biscuits today.....
09/05/2013 at 15:55
Hey guess what.. it was all ok!
Have moved my scan to the morning so I can see the consultant afterwards, as it turns out my chunkiness does actually weigh something and makes a bit of an unpleasant BMI - boo! I thought they might move ot FW, but alas no - still have to wait ANOTHER 3 weeks!!
Penny we've been doing that too - and we are SO fussy!! Poor nameless LO for us!
