i have my first real major bout of morning sickness today :-(
i also have my follow up NHS scan today ! if they confirm what the private scan showed i should be discharged today !

Monnie sorry to hear your feeling sick :( good luck today yay for another scan!
Afm feeling sorry for myself non pregnancy related 2 of my wisdom teeth are coming threw a little bit, and causing me to have a sore throat as well!
Pregnancy wise yesterday I noticed that I am getting a little bit fatter/bump low down which is lovely lol! And strange thinking their is a baby in it lol!
It's exactly a week until my scan in fact I would be going in soon 09:45 :D me and hubby can't wait! Be lovely too see a baby instead if my little jellybean from 7 weeks!

oh how exciting !
do you get free dental now? what can they do for wisdom teeth when you are pregnant ?
21/10/2013 at 10:30
Yes got my card threw the post the other day, I am not sure it only lasts a day or too bad :)
What time is your scan?
21/10/2013 at 10:36
3.50, iv got a half day so leave work at 12.30 but it feels like its ages away !
21/10/2013 at 10:39
I hope the day goes fast for you!
Where is everyone lol?
21/10/2013 at 11:57
I'm still lurking lol
I did a bad thing... i took a hpt yesterday. dont know why. think cos i have my dating scan on Friday i just wanted to make sure i still was pregnant ya know? anyways, the line was lighter. a lot lighter than before - cue extreme worrying. My morning sickness has faded too. only getting mild waves of it now. H doesnt understand, just keeps saying "but a line is a line, doesnt matter how dark" which in theory is correct, however those of us who research the crap out of this stuff know that your hormone levels should double each day and therefore the line would only get darker, not lighter. According to him and his googling its normal but you cant help but fret. :(

How many weeks are you WW? Was it the same type of test you used before ie same brand?
21/10/2013 at 12:06
I have just found this : community.babycenter.com/.../test_line_lighter_dont_panic
Something about the HCG being too high for a test to read and so it gives a faint positive because it gets confused...
And the colour/darkness of the line has nothing to do with your HCG level's it's still present :)

thanks CC - by my calculations i'm 7+4 today but that could change on Friday when I have my dating scan. Ive got no cramps and bleeding which is good. You just hear so many heartbreaking stories about people going for scans and it being bad news that i'm freaking out a little.
21/10/2013 at 12:22
Yw, It's so hard in this first few weeks, No cramps and blood are good signs :)! But yes you do hear so many heartbreaking stories, but sounds like you have nothing to worry about.. I am the same, I am getting close too my 12 week scan and I am worrying and then I get killer heartburn lol!
About you sickness mine actually dipped the same sort of week/day you are... and it's only mild now and I just get evening indigestion and feelings of food smells and idea's of food turn my stomach.. Try not to worry too much (I know its hard!)
21/10/2013 at 12:36
Good luck for your scan Monnie!
CC wisdom tooth pain is the worst! Ouch!! I went to the dentist the other day about a filling thats come out, but they cant do anything unless they xray it so I've just got to live with the hole - great!
Oh no WW, I was exactly the same as you, but I didnt allow myself to buy anymore tests. All my symptoms disappeared and I was worried, went for an early scan and everything was perfect in there so try not to worry. Easier said than done though I know!
I'm feeling rough today, well and truly overdone it at the stables yesterday and crashed and burned on the sofa about 6pm last night. Struggling to keep my eyes open today and feel mega sick. There was me all pleased because I thought I was through the worst of my sickness. Siiiiigh

for some reason i had this warped idea that pregnancy was going to be amazing. That I would feel fantastic all the time, i'd be radiant, i could eat whatever i wanted. I wouldnt change it for the world but the reality so far is worry, out of control acne, exhaustion and repulsed by all foods. It really is the happiest reason in the world to be miserable :)
21/10/2013 at 13:10
SS - Sorry that your feeling so rubbish :( take it easy!
WW - Haha I feel exactly the same, I asked my midwife when was the glowing stage she said about 2 days in your second tri lol! I am not holding out much hope lol!
But yes it really is the happiest reason to feel so rubbish! lol
Aww, WW, try not to worry, and don't let the 2st tri disillusion you towards pregnancy, you'll probably feel more like to expected later on, once you get past the constant anxiety and your body gets used to the hormones. You've got your scan on Friday, right? No use worrying right now, try to put it out of your mind until then, and you'll see baby and a heartbeat and everything will be right in the world!
Monnie, good luck on the scan today!! I know I've been fairly absent, but I'm definitely going to come check in after 4 today! Also - as per free dental, I'm getting a crown for free this week, and all I had to do was mention I was pregnant. No forms to fill in, just had to sign on the dotted line! Not sure what they can do for wisdom teeth, CC, but I'm fairly sure you can have them out with only only local anesthetic and laughing gas, which I'd have thought would be fine, but I'm sure a dentist can give more concrete info.
CC, you have a bump! yay! I have a 'bump,' but sadly it's just fat, and it's been there for ages.
SS, I hope the sickness isn't really back, hopefully you just pushed yourself a bit too far. Feel better soon!
As for me, I've not been around for a few days, but I've not been doing much of anything, really. I think I'm starting to feel rather isolated here. I take Wispa for walks and there's a group of other dog owners I talk to... sort of... but my French isn't good enough for me to do more than small talk and apologise for not understanding more. I'm not feeling overly sick, but I am tired all the time still. I'm looking forward to my early scan on Friday, and also hoping to view a house for which to make an offer this weekend. I'm so excited, but this week is probably going to drag by!
21/10/2013 at 13:42
No idea they aren't too bad atm :) pretty much come threw anyways just feeling sorry for myself lol!
Sorry to hear that your feeling isolated, I can totally relate, I am stuck in the house a lot and the small amount of friends I did have from work have kinda stopped contacting me etc because I can't get out easily and cant go out on night's out etc so I spend a lot of time in the house.. I hope that your french improves with you talking too these dog walkers. Hope your scan goes well :D make sure you flash us your scan picture! good luck with the house!

Brilliant pics that's fab news! Great you've caught up too!!

Hiya all. Sorry I'm late today, probably a bit late for personals since we're onto multi pages. Had a v rough weekend with morning sickness, Saturday was spent entirely in bed feeling like death and vomiting every few hours. Fortunately I've felt a bit better today, but still feeling sick more than not.
Monnie, thoroughly fab news about your scan & great pics, glad you're all caught up too. I'm hoping the same happens for me at my 12 week scan!
