Hope no one minds me starting this :) how are we all today?
My symptoms seem to be increasing, my boobs are so sore and I'm constantly exhausted. No morning sickness/nausea but that could still be to come I'm hoping the symptomsare a ppositive sign.
Yesterday we went to a farm with some friends, was a good day, was on the go for hours, so was in bed by nine pm last night :)
Today we are going to a friends this morning so M can play with her LO then out to butterfly farm this afternoon if the forecast rain starts, otherwise think we will go to the park
Hope you are all doing ok

Morning weekender! The symptoms are definitely a comfort! That's great news. Sounds like you are having a busy time of it but doing lots of lovely things! Hope you have a great day and the rain stays off.
AFM - I have my viability scan at epu at 1.30 today. I'm feeling optimistic although of course feeling v nervous. I'll come back later with an update. Keep everything crossed for me girls!

Weekender I'm with you on the exhaustion, sounds like you had a lovely day yesterday and your plans today sound much better than mine - work work and mroe work ...
SP massive massive vibes for today, let us know how you get on.
AFM the sickness seems to have hit with a vengance! I'm tired but boobs ahve been OK so far but last night I started feeling nauseous and it kept me up, my stomach feels sore and TMI but I've had some questionable bowel movements last night and today. I'm hoping it's a good sign and I've not given myself food poisoning or something - I only made cheese on toast!
I told my boss yesterday, she was pleased and actually said she had guessed - my less than 5 week bloating must have been worse than I thought.
Hi to all that follow
5 weeks today!
23/07/2013 at 09:14
WE - Good news about the symptoms, I think :)
SP - Good luck! I'm sure it will be fine. Lots of vibes to you.
AFM - I don't think the spotting has got any worse. Think its just one of those things. I keep thinking that there isn't actually a baby and I've imagined it all, bit ridiculous really!
I've looked into a private scan again and we could go on Sat. Not sure if H will agree though because its less than 3 weeks until NHS one.

SP, good luck for today, look forward to an update
Grif, that's great your boss was so positive hope the sickness isn't too bad.
MrsV, if its going to be a comfort to you then I'd go for Saturdays scan, it all helps with the 1st tri anxiety doesn't it
23/07/2013 at 09:56
Ok I've booked it for Saturday at 1.30! H said it was up to me so I thought sod it. Hopefully it will put my mind at rest.

Mrs V that's great news about the scan! It'll be amazing to see your wee bean again and it will defo be peace of mind!
Grif what a shame you've been feeling so rotten. I've had similar and wondered if I was unwell rather than it being pregnancy symptoms however the questionable bowel movements have persisted. Joy!

Weekender- great news on the symptoms, fx you're one of the lucky ones who doesn't get sickness!
Sweetpea- look forward to your update following your scan
Grif- hope you feel better soon, MS is miserable :-(
Mrs V- great news on the scan, it sounds worth it if it puts your mind at ease!
AFM we had our 12 week scan this morning and all looked good! (Apart from having a retroverted uterus which explains why I feel like need to pee all the freakin' time!) The baby is looking great and measuring at 11+3 so a bit further along than my early scan dated me. We saw him/her wiggle around a bit although for the most part was having a nice snooze (obviously takes after its mother and likes to sleep!!) Photos were pretty terrible due to my funny uterus but that doesn't really matter so long as the little one is nice and snug. We're going to start telling family and friends now, eek!

Mrs V definitely go for the scan if it will make you feel better -a few weeks is a long time when it drags on to something like a scan. I don't even have any history but wanted some reassurance that as you say something was actually there! Look forward to your update after saturday xxx
SP thanks for the reply, glad it's not just me with the issues!
Rose brill news your scan went well, enjoy telling people.
I'm still feeling pretty rank - just forced some lunch down, it's nausea and a few cramps which are fine but it's a wierd heavy sore feeling too - hopefully little one is just burrowing in really deep but it bloomin hurts!
23/07/2013 at 12:57
Thanks Grif. Sorry I think I missed you earlier. I've had all sorts of aches and pains, the joys of pregnancy!!
Rose - Glad the scan went well and you have been put forward a couple of days.
23/07/2013 at 14:52
Weekender, symptoms are so reassuring aren't they?
Sweetpea, hope the scan has gone well x
Grif, hope you're feeling better soon
MrsV, don't blame you for booking a scan, I'm tempted but its expensive and shouldn't be long til my 12 week scan.
Rose, really pleased to hear all is well :)
Afm, day started well with sports day for the boy at preschool then I took him for lunch and my card wouldn't work to pay :( bank have cancelled the card as they'd issued me a new one except I haven't received it. Was so embarrassing, I ended up ringing my mum and getting her to pay over the phone! Now I'm just feeling stressed, can't be good for the baby. Still feeling tired and occasionally nauseous.

I saw a little heart beat! It was totally incredible! :)
23/07/2013 at 15:06
Sweetpea that's brilliant! How far along are you?
23/07/2013 at 15:17
Thanks Isis. She measured me at 7+3 so a couple of days behind where I thought I was but it doesn't really matter. I feel I can start to enjoy being pregnant now and relax a bit! What were you measured at during the scan?
23/07/2013 at 15:34
I thought I was 7+6 but she put me forward to 8+4 which I'm not bothered about, hopefully means I get my 12w scan sooner! Got mw next week so hopefully can book it then
23/07/2013 at 15:44
Oh fingers crossed that's the case! I think it can be hard to get an accurate measurement when they are so tiny - the healthy bit is the important bit!! I'm going to stop day counting until my 12week scan in August!
23/07/2013 at 15:47
SP that's amazing, you must be so relieved xx
23/07/2013 at 16:04
SP - So happy to see this update! When I had an early scan last time they put me back a few days but I was spot on for my dates by the 12 week scan.
23/07/2013 at 17:49
Great news on your scan SP, it's amazing to see the little heartbeat going isn't it!
