How are we all today? Nothing much to report from me apart from that we had the early scan on Saturday and all was well, and I've been dated as 2 weeks further on than I had thought which was a bit of a shock! The nausea seems to have disappeared also which is good but tiredness has ramped up, struggling to get through a day without a nap now!
Hope everyone is well and managed to have nice weekends.

2 whole weeks!! wow! Either you got your dates wrong or that's a whopper!! haha! Glad all was well at the scan, its such a relief isn't it?
My nausea has dropped too, but I am shattered all the time! Especially today after being at a Christening / 1st bday party all day yesterday. I'm sat at my desk thinking the keyboard looks like a nice place for a nap!
We had our last EPU scan on Friday and saw our baby again! It was amazing, such a relief I nearly passed out. We saw their little heart beating and then his/her head was moving about too. It was lovely. We then told H's two children (11 and 14) who were over the moon. Over the weekend we've been telling various family and friends. Its so nice to have people congratulating us, everyone is so happy :)
I'm getting a definite bump now, H notices it and some of my friends did too, so I imagine it wont be long before I go pop!
We have our Nuchal scan next Wednesday afternoon, I know I should move to 2nd Tri (AAARH!) at the end of this week but I'd like to stick around until then if its ok?! xx

Well my previous estimate on how far on I was was only based on the clear blue test which at the time said 2-3 weeks, I haven't been able to use my last period as a guide as they're all over the place and my last period was actually in May, so god knows how I even got pregnant!! But it does feel good having skipped 2 weeks, just when time felt like it had stood still!
Such great news about your last scan, will you just move to the NHS standard now or will they offer you extra scans? And yes, it's great telling all the family, I love seeing people's reactions! We told H's grandma yesterday, bearing in mind we're both 31, own our own home and have been married nearly a year, she asked us if it was planned!
And yes, stick around (or do both?!) it's too quiet in 1st tri as it is!

The questions people ask!! How funny!
Its just NHS standard now, but I am shared care, meaning I am seen by midwife and consultant so we'll see. x
