Morning ladies, how are you all? how was your weekends?
im fine, nothing new to report here, I'm 11 weeks today and starting to get nervous about my scan!
still worrying about work and money, lol

Are you worried about Mat leave and money? Do you get SMP only?
AFM- I'm still waiting to hear from the cons sec for an appt. grrrr!
I ordersc myself a pillow on Saturday, a thermaline one. There was too much choice in the end so I just read some reviews and ordered it! It should get delivered this week.
Still testing everyday, and stressing myself out! But, today's line is much darker so for today I'm in a better place.

Monnie, there's so much to be worried about when pregnant isn't there? Hugs. After the scan hopefully you'll feel more relaxed about the baby anyway!
Imp, yay for a darker line, and for the pregnancy pillow, I hope it keeps you nice and comfy. I'll need to dig mine out of the loft at some point...
AFM, nothing exciting to report really. 2 weeks today till my scan, which is still ages, but I can't wait to be able to tell people officially rather than probably have everyone suspect (if anyone saw the do you show earlier thread at the weekend there's a picture there of just how huge my bump is for 10 weeks, I look soooo pregnant!). I'm having a mini firework night at my parent's tonight which will hopefully be good - there's J and my sister's 11 month old there, so we'll see how they do with the fireworks. I'll have to bundle up warmly though, first frost here this morning and had to defrost the car to get to work, brr!

We had frost this morning too, it was awful!
I saw your photo- you have got a nice little bump going on there.

Monnie, hope your scan gets here early so at least you can stop worrying about that x
Imp, really hope you have some joy today with the secretary. It's not on that they mess you around so much xx
SG, I'm jealous of your bump! I can't wait to have my own bump :)
AFM, I'm officially upduffed, it's on my medical record and everything :) Feeling stupidly excited about this! I just have to wait for the midwife to get in touch now. Eeeek!!

Monnie, try not to be nervous. Are nerves due to previous experience? Remember that although your first scan was traumatic, the subsequent ones held good news (and brought your dates back to normal!), which is amazing. I decided to look up miscarriage statistics based on fetal heartbeat at certain weeks, and if you see a heartbeat at 8 weeks the stats say only 2% chance of mc, and if heartbeat seen at 10 weeks only 0.6% chance! I know things still happen, but statistics are on your side for now. I can't say anything about work and mat leave, though, just that SMP is more than a lot of other people around the world get, even if it's not easy to live on.
Imp, you'll have to give us a review about the pillow. As for testing, are you going to stop when you run out? I tested daily until I ran out of ICs, then bought another double back of CBDs to end up getting 3+! What one person sees as a waste of money, another person sees as priceless reassurance.
SG, enjoy the fireworks! Isn't it common to show early in 2nd pregnancies?
Figaro, yay for official!
As for me, I'm back to sniffling non-stop, but no nausea or boob tenderness. The lack of strong symptoms was what drove me to look up miscarriage stats, though, and I'm trying not to worry at all and just count myself one of the lucky few who doesn't get full on morning sickness. The nausea I felt always went away after a bite of food, so was never bad anyways. And joy of joys, my boobs are finally growing. Sorry, that was sarcastic. My left boob (only one!) is bulging out of my HH cup. Bravissimo, here I come.

I've been feeling so, so sick all day. It's all-consuming. Yuk.
