Oh my gosh, it's mid-afternoon and there's no 1st tri thread??
Where is everyone? I've just gotten back from a lovely (if tiring and rainy) walk with Wispa, scoffed down some beans on toast (tasted heavenly!), and have collapsed onto the sofa. It's a miserable day down here in the southeast, so I don't think I'm going to do much else today... except *maybe* head into Bromley to browse for potential secret otter gifts and get my first starbucks red cup of the festive season! Not much to report baby-wise...

Hi Wispa. I have been looking for the thread too, didn't want to start it though! Everyone must be sleeping (which is what I'd love to be doing right now...). You are very lucky to be nice and warm at home!
Bit dubious about posting here so early, but think I should be positive about everything. I use to read these threads and couldn't wait until I could join in! I'm currently debating whether to book a private scan for 7+1, 7+5, or 8+5 (thats the only dates they have available!). Sooner the better on one hand, but don't want to have any unnecessary scares for having it too early either. I need to book my booking in appointment from 6 weeks, so don't want to wait and hope for a free early scan on NHS (might be plausible because of my irregular cycles), would rather just book something and know when it is going to be I think.

oops iv just started one aswell haha !
ill give my update here : its not a nice one:
nothing baby wise from me, and totally OT but woe is me.
my fur baby honey is very very poorly and its making me a wreck at the moment.
on sunday at 4am i rushed her to the dog hospital as she wasnt well, they gave her antibiotics and pain killers and sent her home, i sat with her until morning but she wasnt any better so yesterday i took her to her vet, who kept her in overnight. today they have said even though she has been on a drip over night for hydration and antibiotics her temp still hast come down, they are now putting her under and doing a chest x ray to see if she has pneumonia.
im so upset i want my baby home :-( for any non pet people im sure i sound like a loony, but for dog people this is such a big heart ache :-(

Oh Monnie, fx Honey gets better soon. I completely understand how you feel, any time Wispa has been poorly I've been beside myself with worry, and that's with her not ever having had to stay overnight at the vet's.. You've got my utmost sympathy and all the vibes in the world that things take a turn for the better very soon.
Pep, I understand your trepidation, but welcome to first tri! I would suggest 7+5 should be late enough to see something substantial, but 8+5 would be even better. I had one at 8+3 and baby was found super easily with a transabdominal (normal) ultrasound, and heartbeat was audible. I would recommend the Fetal Medicine Centre on Harley Street if you're in the London area. If the NHS do offer you an early dating scan, though, you can always cancel the private one!

Hello ladies, I didn't want to start the thread- mentally I'm not there yet.
Wispa your day sounds lovely, I'm jealous.
Pep- welcome to first tri. I agree with wisps that 7+5 would be best, you should defo see a hb by then.
Mon I am sending honey loads of vibes that she gets better really soon. You must be beside yourself with worry,
AFM- consultant appt tomo and I'm nervous. No idea why as nothing will happen tomorrow, I think it's the thought of going back to the hospital again. Generally the hospital hasn't been a positive place for me.
I'm feeling a bit queasy still and off lots of food, in fact the only thing I want to eat is carbs. Not a healthy balanced diet, but I'm taking my multivitamin so hopefully I'll be ok.

Wispa - Your day sounds fab, I would love a red cup but don't think the gingerbread latte I love would sit so well with my sicky stomach!
Pep - I had my early scan at 7+6 and a little heartbeat could be found then :)
Monnie - Hope Honey is ok, is horrible when pets are ill and there is little you can do!
Imp - Hope the consultants appointment goes ok!
AFM, the nausea has turned into proper sickness, which is not good seeing as I have a fear of vomit :( Really hoping it passes soon! We told out parents and siblings last night so there is finally people we can talk to about it all!

Wispa - hope you had a lovely day!
Pep - welcome to 1st tri :)
Monnie - I really hope Honey is doing a bit better - lots of get well vibes to her x
Imp - best of luck with the consultants appointment and hope the queasiness eases soon.
Vix - Hope you feel better soon.
AFM - I felt awful Friday, Saturday and Sunday with tummy ache, nausea, bloating and backache, not helped by busy shifts at work and not eating properly. I've had a lazy day off today and am back to eating normally and feeling better. H & I went for coffee and cake and a walk along the beach this afternoon and I'm now catching up on housework.

Wispa - hope you enjoyed a relaxing day especially when the weather is so rubbish.
Hi Pep - lovely to see you here and congratulations again. I'd agree with the other girls and go with the scan at 7+5.
Monnie - I'm so sorry about little Honey. I hope shes doing a bit better this evening xxx
Imp - fingers crossed for your appointment tomorrow. Its normal to be nervous, especially when the hospital triggers so many bad memories for you. Hopefully this is the start of the good ones though xxx
Vix - Hope your sickness isn't too bad lovely.
Ixia - Glad you are feeling better after a few days feeling rubbish. Long may it continue!!!
AFM - I'm 6+1 today. I'm feeling rotten to be honest. Queasy, tired and my back is sore. I've got to go and teach kettlebells tonight so this will be interesting. I've made the excuse of a sore back the last couple of weeks to cover the fact that I've dropped my weight and I'm doing less - now I've actually got one!!!! On a plus - 2 weeks today until my early scan although its still aaaaaaaaaaaages away!!!!!

Evening everyone. I've had a really busy day at work so haven't been able to get on properly. (I've been on, but not had enough time to write replies.)
Wispa, sounds like a nice relaxing day.
Pep, yay for posting, it's nice to see you here. 7+5 sounds like a good time for a scan.
Monnie, so sorry about honey, I hope she's doing better soon. It's horrid when pets are poorly.
Imp, I think first tri is a good time to throw any thoughts of healthy eating out of the window. I started with such good intentions, but when most things make you feel I'll, whatever you can keep down is what you're going to have!
Vix, you poor thing, sickness is horrid. I hope it doesn't last too long for you. Yay for telling family, it feels so nice to share doesn't it?
Ixia, sounds like a lovely day today, I'm jealous!
CA, I'm sorry you're feeling so rotten, but yay for symptoms! I hope the next 2 weeks fly for you.
Afm, busy day at work as previously mentioned, but that was quite nice as the day passed quickly. I weird myself this morning and the scales were mean and said stop eating rubbish and do some exercise. I explained that I couldn't eat well as I had to stuff my face with carby rubbish so as not to be sick, and since I felt rubbish exercise was a bit out, but they didn't accept my excuses and harshly upped my weight by half a stone. Boo. Hopefully if I feel less sick in tri 2 I can rein it in a little bit, I really don't want to gain as much as I did with J!
