Hi everyone. How was your weekend?
Well Dexter has been poorly all weekend and Saturday was his birthday. Saturday night we ended up in A&E with him after a call to 111, he had a high temp which caused him to have some trouble breathing. But it was nothing that some calpol and nurofen didn't sort out. He was feeling much better yesterday but seems to have taken a turn for the worst again today. It's so horrible seeing them poorly. All I want to do is tell him he will be okay and he will feel better eventually, but of course he doesn't understand. So we are sat in bed having cuddles and watching cbeebies this morning.
In other news I have my 12 week scan and consultant appointment on Thursday. So looking forward to that.
Hi to anybody that follows!

MS - Sorry to hear about Dexter, just glad he's feeling better. I bet you can't wait to see your babies again :)
AFM, Well it seems that this pregnancy just doesn't want to be nice to me. I am continuing to lose weight, I just never feel hungry, I haven't actually been sick, I just feel sick, my new strategy is to try and eat little and often, because if I try and eat a big meal I feel sick after it. I'll see how it goes and hopefully I'll start to regain what I've lost. We went up North on Friday night after work, spent 3.5 hours in the car, and when we got to Mums, I went to the loo and had quite a bit of pinky red spotting, only when I wiped, cue me a paranoid wreck, it tailed off but I had a bit more Saturday afternoon but I really think it's because I've been a bit constipated. Then yesterday I slipped and fell down Mums stairs, well I say fell, it was a slip, my foot just gave way, I came down with a thud and went down 4 stairs on my backside, so I feel a bit stiff today. Like that wasn't bad enough, I've got an awful case of diarrhea this morning, I had to run to the loo at work I only just made it :( I feel like I cannot enjoy this pregnancy and it's getting me down.

I'm so sorry you feel down Claire. Pregnancy can be really horrible. Especially the 1st trimester. It's made out to be such a lovely, glamorous time but the reality is often much different. Just remember though that you won't feel that way forever. 2nd Tri tends to be a little easier. The great thing is we get to have a baby by the end of it and you soon forget what it was like being pregnant. I must have forgotten pretty quickly otherwise I wouldn't have been here right now. Come and rant on here whenever you want. X

Thanks MS, I do feel really bad for moaning constantly, but the unjust of it all, I didn't get this far without one heck of a huge struggle and I feel like I just want to be given a break! I'm so anxious about my 12 week scan, I still find it hard to believe that everything could be ok and I actually will get a baby at the end of it. Maybe once I've had my scan and my symptoms settle a little I will start to feel a bit positive about everything. I hate being negative because I know how lucky I am so I do apologise if this is all coming across a bit insensitive, just trying to be really honest about how I feel. x

MS - Poor little D, he's going through the mill this past week isn't he. I hope snuggling up with you makes him feel a bit better. I bet you are counting that days until Thursday!
CL - I'm so sorry you're feeling so rubbish. Eating little and often is definitely the way to go, try and get plenty of calories in of whatever you fancy. I know how you feel with the constipation I had a terrible time with that last week, one night I ended up in quite a bit of pain. I thought something terrible could be happening, but I just needed a poo!
Your fall must have frightened you as well, but baby won't even have noticed as our bodies are keeping them safe and putting us through it!!
I feel so sorry for you as it's hitting you even harder than me, I really hope you start to feel better soon. Your 12 weeks scan is getting close and the fact that you feel so rubbish are good signs baby is growing.
AFM - I've still not been sick but the waves of nausea are feeling more and more like I'm going to be, sometimes I wish I could be then I'd feel better. The tiredness also hits me in waves. I said I'd never moan about pregnancy symptoms and I'd enjoy feeling rubbish, and I'm really glad I feel rubbish but it is hardwork!
