Good morning all :-)
On here early since the cough I've had since, well, since ovulation actually, has got worse again and I've been up most of the night. Will probably try to get to the docs between Christmas and New Year since a month is a silly time to have been ill. Anyway, on a brighter note, I have my first early scan this afternoon at 4.30. I'm excited and nervous all at once. I know my mc was at 7 weeks but I truly believe that was a MMC and it died before 6 weeks since my symptoms had gone by then. At the mo I still have very sore boobs, feel so tired I could sleep for a week, and generally feel pregnant. So, fingers crossed and sticky bean vibes please xxx
Hoping everyone who follows has a good day xx

Morning Barefoot! Lots of sticky bean vibes for you. Good luck for later today and I hope you manage to get that cough sorted soon x
AFM - I've just ordered some maternity trousers for work as mine are far too tight now. 1 more sleep until my scan - very nervous but looking forward to telling people.
Hi to those who follow!

BF - Hope all goes well this pm. Will be thinking of you.
Ixia - Exciting that your scan is tomorrow :-) maternity trousers are a revelation....soooo much more comfy! Can't wait to be in mine!
Fig- Hey lovely!
CA - Hands here for holding. I am in no doubts you'll have a cracking scan...can't wait to see your update!
AFM - Feeling a bit more myself today after my ibs flare up last week. A real relief as it's been horrid without meds :-( Soft play this morning then a spot of cleaning...my parents are coming for present swaps tomorrpw and we're going to give them an early present...of knitting needles and balls of pink and blue wool! :-)

Just crashing in - sorry - to wish BF and CA biggest luck for scans today

Thanks Ixia, Coco and Counter xxx much appreciated. I caved in and went to the docs this morning. She was very nice and thrilled I was pregnant again. Said not much I can do about the cough except over the counter honey and glycerol meds, but checked me over and gave me a standby prescription for antibiotics to use if I get worse. Then I had an argument with the pharmacist who didn't want me to buy the honey stuff the doc recommended since I was pregnant. I asked him exactly which ingredient out of honey, lemon, sucrose and glycerol was a) a medicine and b) unsafe. He couldn't answer that so I bought it anyway and hurried back home. Then an argument with OH who was working from home this morning and has now gone to work saying he will "do his best" to get back to take me for the scan. Aaargh!! I feel very hormonal, sleep deprived and stroppy today!
CA, all the vibes in the world for your scan later honey.
Ixia, same to you for tomorrow. Exciting times xx
Coco, glad you're feeling better and what an amazing present :-)

I'm just nosing on here and wanted to wish you luck BF for your scan. Keep us posted x

Crashing to say best of luck to CA and BF for your scans today, I hope they both go well. x

Hope all my first tri ladies are keeping warm and out of the wind. It's a bit scary here and I am in mild surrey/london!
BF - will be thinking of you this afternoon. I have been feeling pretty rough last few weeks and was living off lemon and honey drinks. My heavily pregnanyt friend told me yesterday honey and cloves works like magic in soothing throats and coughs so maybe worth a try.
Ixia - good luck tomorrow! will be thinking of you
Fig - hello!
CA - I so hope this morning went ok - and looking forward to update
Coco - glad to hear you are feeling bit better
AFM - office shuts down now until 2nd, so took a half day today and met my daddy for lunch and to show him my early scan jelly-bean/cashew nut photos which he cried a littel over (big softie). Meant to be going to Arsenal v Chelsea game tonight but really don;t fancy it and then tomorrow meant to be boarding a ferry to france for christmas..... Hmmmm
Hi to all that follow and thinking of all the ladies with scans today and tomorrow!
23/12/2013 at 17:43
Hello again ladies xx
Well, how nerve wracking was that?? First I saw the sac and it looked empty, and I swear the next few seconds seemed like hours as the sonographer hunted for the embryo. Final found it "hiding" in a corner of the sac, heartbeat flickering away :-)
She measured me as 4.2mm or 6+0. My dates say 6+2 but I ovulated on CD15 not 14 so I suppose that would make me 6+1 or the average! Still nervous and they have booked me for another scan at nearly 9 weeks when we will be able to see more. Meanwhile, meet Twinkle...

Tri-hopping, but Barefoot that's amazing! What a lovely early Christmas present. X
23/12/2013 at 18:02
hi all, sorry its taken me so long to get on for an update. I had to go to work this afternoon - whats with that?!?!?
Anyways, I'm doing personals first......
BF - glad everything went ok today.
Ixia - only 1 more sleep, you're nearly there!!! Best of luck for tomorrow.
Coco - glad you're feeling more like yourself. Thats a lovely idea with the knitting needles and wool!!!
CJ - that so nice your dad cried a little. Hope you enjoy the football tonight even though you don't want to go. Safe trip tomorrow. Hope your crossing is ok in the weather.
Thank you to all that wished me well for my scan today including Counter and spikey.
AFM - scan went well. Everything looked ok from what can be seen at this stage. I've been put forwards in dates from 11+6 to 12+3 so I totally missed my 12 week milestone!!! I had a lazy baby to begin with until they were shaken awake. Poor soul. So relieved this is over. Meet Baby K - due 4th July 2014!!!!

CA amazing scan! So happy for you! Did you get dated forward on your early scan or under by your dates? Glad your past the twelve week mark :)
23/12/2013 at 20:05
Pep - They dated me bang on my dates at my early scan and now I'm 4 days forward from there today xx. Best of luck to you for tomorrow.
