How brave am I starting the thread? Yesterday's scan has given me some courage.
Vix- good luck this morning with your scan.
I hope everyone else is ok.
I'm a bit more relaxed after yesterday's scan, although not fully- that's a long way off yet. I slept ok last night but was awake at 5am again for no reason. I was really off food yeseryday, only managed fruit last night for my tea- oh, and chocolate hobnobs!

Morning all :)
Imp - lovely to see you start the thread :) mmm that's an interesting tea you had but lovely with the choccie hobnobs yum! Great news about your scan so happy it's all looking good :) xx
AFM - think I'll text my midwife today to ask about the awful taste in my mouth and others can smell it, how embarrassing :( need to know if it's ok/normal to have this or not and if there's anything I can take for it. It makes me feel sick.
Hi to all who follow xx

I hope the mw gives you some answers leelee. It must be really annoying and make you feel really self conscious.

Morning Guys :)
Imp - Good for you starting the thread! So glad you have been slightly reassured. Fruit & hobnobs! Nice! Do you not find having an empty stomach makes you feel worse? I am eating so much recently, my jeans are uncomfortable already, how embarrassing. Need to sort it out.
Leelee - Hope the MW can help. Don't be embarrassed, your H could just have an extra sensitive nose!
AFM - Home day today, so happy. Just need to muster up the strength to get through the journey. On the flight here I had the chap next to me ask if I was OK because I was clearly in such discomfort. Cursing my job right now! Just glad no-one from my company is with me, otherwise they might have worked out that I'm pregnant by now! At least we are half way through the week, which means I'm now closer to my early scan next Saturday. Eeek!

Hi pep, to begin with I found I was eating loads. Now I've gone the other way and I can only nibble at things. I've not had a full meal in days. I'm eating biscuits and fruit though so I'm never really going without anything. If I didn't eat at all I would probably feel sick.
I hope the journey is ok. Where have you been to?
27/11/2013 at 08:53
Vix, hope your scan goes well. Thinking of you.
Imp, look at you being all brave and starting the thread :) Liking the sound of chocolate hobnobs!
LeeLee, hope you can get the taste in your mouth sorted.
Pep, glad you'll be home soon.
AFM, 3 sleeps till my scan! Still bricking it. We had a takeaway curry last night and I felt sick as a dog afterwards. I've now accepted that baby does not like curries and will steer clear for the next few months!

Had my scan yesterday, dated back 1 day so i'm officially 13 weeks today and EDD is 4th June. Had a bit of a nightmare trying to get them to draw my blood, the hour appt turned into a 3 hour appt, but a lot of that was waiting for different people to try taking my blood. At work so photo wont go on, will try from phone on a seperate post:Imp - need to catch up on this weeks threads but glad you're feeling better after your scan. and very brave to start a thread, i still havent haha!LeeLee - They used to say you get a metallic taste but I havent yet. Hopefully your midwife helpsPep - Sorry you're feeling so rank. is there much more travelling planned before you announce?Figaro - Gutted - my baby loves a curry! with a big old naan bread too! 3 more sleeps, exciting!!!
27/11/2013 at 11:24
Fig, sorry about feeling sick again. Yay for symptoms though, defo avoid the curry from now on!
WW- Yay about scan. Glad it went well and I'll look forward to seeing a picture soon. Not long left in first tri for you.

Fruit and chocolate hobnobs sounds like an awesome tea to me :) Imp, I'm not sure you'll be able to relax until baby is born, but just take it a day at a time. Seeing a heart beating at nearly 8 weeks means statistics are on your side, though!
Leelee, have you spoken to the midwife yet? I wonder what it could be! Oh, pregnancy, it brings such lovely side effects... Apparently it's quite common to develop dental problems in pregnancy (my gums have started bleeding when i brush), so maybe it's connected to that?
Pep, I hope your return flight is a happier one for you.
Figaro, I had a similar reaction to takeaway curry a few weeks back. It made me so sad!
I'm not up to much.. last night I kept waking up from coughing because what I was coughing up had the foulest taste. Ugh. I'm not feeling all that bad, though *knock on wood*, so even if it is a mild case of bronchitis I'm hoping I won't need to see the doctor for medicine. I've had to up my daily steroid dose, though :( 2 weeks and 2 days left in France and I'd rather not be sick the whole time.

dont know if this will work? cant see a preview but its said its inserted
27/11/2013 at 11:31
Missed you wishful (I had left the window open for ages, oops!) - we're due the same day!
Sorry for lack of personals, on my phone!
Scan went well, there is definitely a little person in there, turning somersaults and with a beating heart! I am more reassured now and only 9 more days until my next scan :)
Having to wait nearly 2 hours for the scan with a full bladder and feeling sick was not so good!
27/11/2013 at 11:32
WW- Hello little baby!
Wispa- sorry you're coughing so much. It drives me mad when it wakes me up, most annoying. I hope it clears up soon so that you can enjoy Paris.
Hi Wispa! sorry you're feeling ill. I'm dying for a lemsip! my throat is killer at the moment
if you click on the picture it works better, thats super zoomed in for some reason, and doesnt even look like my picture but hey ho! haha
Vix I am over the moon for you. I was starting to worry when we'd not heard from you!
27/11/2013 at 11:37
Oh look, it's a baby!! How was the measurement?
I forgot to mention, I made my mother in law open our post from the hospital over skype last night to get our screening results, well pleased to hear it's 1:13000!
Glad to hear your scan went well too, Vix! So many scans we're having :)
27/11/2013 at 11:41
Imp - I was worrying a lot when whilst having to wait for nearly 2 hours to be scanned! But thankfully all good news, just a little break through bleeding. They were really nice and said they would see me again if I had any more bleeding up until 14 weeks :)
27/11/2013 at 11:50
Haha Wishfulwhispers, I think thats my scan picture somehow?! I was being nosey and thought, thats my baby lol.
27/11/2013 at 12:05
Oh, oh, this happened with my scan photo! A completely different photo showed up on preview, and I changed the file name and uploaded again and it worked...
27/11/2013 at 12:10
How odd. If you click on the picture a totally different picture appears!
