Boo - good luck for the scan this morning, do pop back and let us know how it goes.
Bunny, will be thinking of you today.
Maltesers - good luck for your scan too.
AFM, not a great nights sleep. LO decided to come into us just before 2am. He never settles in our bed so we kept putting him back in his own bed only for him to get his toys out and start playing with them! Is it wrong that I'm glad he's at nursery today? Lol I could do with a nap later.

Good luck bunny, boo and maltesers!
Hi everyone else!
I have appointment with mw today I managed not to see her at all during isaacs pregnancy as I refused community mw care but that meant after he was born there was confusion over post natal visits, so I'm back seeing horrid mw, I honestly wonder why she's chosen to go into that kind of profession. O and 6ish weeks and I'm so round round the middle that iv got an old pair of mat trousers on! How absolutely ridiculous! But I'm sooooo comfy
Have to sort Ls Easter bonnet, take Isaac to Pre school again for settling in session, he's having his lunch there today he loved it last time so hoping he likes it today too.

Boo, bunny & malteasers good luck today x
WG: I hear you about the sleep (see below!) hope you get your nap today x
MrsL: Hope you're well, every day our scan dates get closer!!
PP: Sorry not everyone was enthusiastic about your news, must be nice to finally tell all, I can't wait
RF: I know what you mean about the maternity trousers, so much more comfortable, I'm in mine for work! Hope the mw isn't as bad as you remember her being x
AFM: I had a bad night on Monday night as my H was 'running a bit late' & didn't end up coming home till I'd gone to sleep after 11pm. As I only work on a Monday & Tuesday Monday is the hardest eve for me as it's the only day where I work all day & then have to get up early next day & as I is not going to sleep well it was doubly tough as she didn't go to sleep until just after 10.30 so I was knackered. He also didn't make it home for bedtime last night either which is a pain but at least she went to bed (but then woke at 4 & ended up in my bed as I ran out of energy). Am feeling so tired but only got swimming this morning then can nap this afternoon when my toddler does (it's becoming habbit now!!). Also, as I only work Mon & Tues & I'm a teacher I'm now off for 2 weeks, then going back we the bank holiday on the Monday & then an inset day on the Tues so I won't be teaching for nearly 4 weeks!! Got a ton of marking to complete before then though!

PP - sorry to hear your manager wasn't a bit more supportive. It kind of takes the shine off it a little, doesn't it? Just ignore them.
TRF - I hope your appointment with the horrible MW goes ok. Is she an older lady? Be nice if she'd retired, eh? I've just ordered some maternity jeans - the jeans, well jeggings, I'm wearing now are still fine but I've only got the one pair! I don't think my mat jeans from last time will be any good at the moment, I'm slimmer than I was last time around.
BK - I also find it a pain when my H is late home, but fortunately I haven't got to get up for work. Will he be late home tonight too? My H is supposed to be going to a football match with a client and won't be home until around 10pm - fingers crossed F goes to bed easily so I can chill out. H is also late home Friday and then away all weekend.

I will come back later, but just wanted to check in with you.
Scan went amazingly well!! So so happy. This is actually happening!!
my dates have been put by 3 days, so im now 11+6.
02/04/2014 at 11:48
Pp I would ignore your manager just think of the positive response you got from everyone else.
Rf I hope that the midwife is nicer to you or no longer there! When we get back from our weekend away I'm definitely getting the maternity trousers out!
Bk enjoy your afternoon nap! How nice to have that time off.
Boo glad that the scan went well. Lots of us are due quite close together!
Had the CVS done. Baby looks and is measuring fine. They had to put the needle through my tummy at a funny angle as the placenta was difficult get to. I have never seen a needle so big! The consultant said it went well so I've got to take it easy for the rest of the day and keep an eye out for bleeding or bad tummy cramps in the next 48 hours. We should get the initial results Monday for pataus, Edwards and downs, then 2 weeks for the full chromosome results. We've also asked to be told the sex as although we liked not finding out last time we think we would need time to get our heads round things after k. We won't be telling people though as my mum doesn't want to know and we like the idea of us having that little secret.

Boo - great news that the scan went well. It starts to sink in a little more, doesn't it?
Bunny - I'm pleased to hear the CVS went well. Are you at home resting for the rest of the day? I can understand that knowing the sex will help you both get your heads around it all. Were they able to tell you this morning or do you need to wait for some of the results to come back?
02/04/2014 at 12:24
Boo glad scan went well :-)
Bunny glad the cvs went well and hope time flies by till Monday
Bk hope you get a nap later
Afm had mw appt, a lovely new one...who goes on ML. In June and mw will be back then but I think if all goes ok il just ask to be seen at hospital
As don't think stress levels will take mw.
02/04/2014 at 12:56
WG we've got to wait til Monday for initial results and the rest and gender will be 2 weeks wait. Yes I've got the rest of the day off.
Rf at least you've got a couple of months with the nice one!
02/04/2014 at 13:19
Boo: So glad to hear that the scan went well, must a be a relief
Bunny: Glad to hear that they were finally able to do the CVS, hope the results come back clear & make sure you do rest up today.
RF: Great news that it's a nicer MW even if only for a short time
2 more episodes of Peppa (whilst lunch goes down) then fingers crossed for a nice long nap!

Hi tam, I found out at 3 weeks + 5 days so it feels ages ago that I last tested. I've been tempted to test again recently but have been fighting the urge! I've got 11 days till my scan & it feels like I've been waiting forever!! Good luck with the wait, it's hard but worth it x
