HOw are we all? I have spent half the night awake feeling horrendous. The most sick i've felt, it was horrible. I started feeling bad in the evening and couldn't manage any dinner, which probably made it worse. Plus i am still sooooooooooooo tired. No work today though atleast, as it's Thursday. P and i are off to a toddler group which will be fun and then food shopping later. Hopefully i'll start to feel more human at some point. Still no scan date which is annoying, i want to be able to count down!! Sorry for being so moany this morning. On the plus side 10 weeks today!

Morning AR! sounds like you had a rubbish night :( Enjoy your day off today. Must be nice to break up the week a bit with Thursday off! How many days a week do you work? Fingers crossed for a scan date soon. At least you know it'll be sometime in the next 3 weeks...I think sometimes they forget that people work and its not always easy to get time off at short notice.
As for me I feel ok today again (which is scary in itself!) My boobs were hurting again last night though, enough for it to wake me up a couple of times in the night when I rolled over. And I had another crazy dream (about my midwife appointment!) - they seem to be my two main symptoms which has been a bit strange.
Other than that just counting down to my scan next week. 1 week to go! If all goes well I'm just looking forward to being able to finally tell our parents and to have a date to work towards. I've downloaded a couple of aps on my phone but you need to put an EDD into them and so I have no idea, its just a guess.

I'm ill today :( tmi but I've been up most of the night with a stomach bug, the cramps actually felt like labour pains, I was briefly worried. I'm now battling with M to get dressed before H comes back to take her to nursery, I don't think I could manage the drive.
Pregnancy wise nothing to report.
AR, hope you can put your feet up today x
Grif, good luck for later - what times the scan? X
Hi to everyone else

Flossy I bought sleep bras from mothercare and they help my boobs not feel so sore at night, might be worth a try x
12/09/2013 at 08:59
flossy - i had loads of dreams with P,. not as bad this time but i've had a few odd ones! I work 3 days a week which is a really nice balance.
weekender - i'm sorry you feel awful. Tummy problems are awful, when i had all those issues early on the cramps were like labour pains and it really shocked me. HOpe you feel better with some rest.
12/09/2013 at 09:07
Thanks Weekender. I'm so scared to buy anything before the scan....but I suppose it's for me rather than the baby. It'd be nice to be comfortable! Maybe I'll look this weekend x
Just had a silent/eye contact argument with a man on the tube! I could tell he was annoyed that I had to reach across him to hold onto the pole that he obviously didn't want to share. Times like that I wish I had a baby on board badge!

Balls. Wrote a long reply and lost it.
AR - glad you're not at work tdoay. 10 weeks is good, yes? Turning 10 weeks this week for me made me feel as though I am genuinely pregnant and not just playing around, lol. I was desperate to get my scan date, for no real reason than I just wanted it!
Flossy - your scan will be so exciting! I knew my dates to the day so my 7 week scan was just to reassure me after a previous mc. But you really need your scan!
Weekender - so sorry you're ill. Have the pains stopped?
I had a night a bit like you ladies. Only slept about half of it so feel rubbish, up 3 times to wee, very nauseous last night so my dinner was 3 Lotus biscuits. Head blocked today. Work is manic. I'm daydreaming of my bed. I've got to work Saturday too so am now hanging on for Sunday, it seems so very far away, ha ha
12/09/2013 at 09:14
AR sorry you're feeling rubbish - it's so draining feeling crap all the time! Hope you manage to have a bit of a relax today and keep soem food down.
Flossy don't worry symptoms do fluctuate but it is reasuring to feel some (for about 5 mins before you wish them away!)
weekender sorry you're feeling crap too - it must be the day for it. Are you off work today? Try to rest a bit.
Scan is at 2:40pm today eeek will update you all as soon as poss as I've got the consultant straight after which I think is to do with my loop biopsy treatment so not sure when I'll be able to get on. My mum and MIL are coming up and are both so excited bless them, can't wait to send H a pic and tell him. Feeling OK but a bit nervous - I feel pretty ropey sickness wise which I'm taking as a good sign!
12/09/2013 at 09:17
Yes counter they have stopped, thanks for asking. Hope you are kept busy enough that the day passes quickly
Flossy I know what you mean, but I def think they help. If I hadn't had them from my 1st pregnancy I'd have been like you but hopefully they'll also stop them getting saggy (I think that bit is wishful thinking, but it feels like they are stretching when I'm lying down, so the bras hold them in place)
12/09/2013 at 09:18
counter -i'm sorry you had a pants night too. Must be something in the air.
grif - loads of luck, very excited for you!! Try and put a pic up later and update us when you can.
12/09/2013 at 09:21
Morning Grif. Yes I'm off, called in sick. Apart from feeling crap it's September weekend here this weekend so think they'd appreciate me keeping my germs to myself! I'm lying in bed and plan to stay here till at least lunchtime!
Will be thinking of you this afternoon. How nice that the grandmas are going with you, that will be so lovely for them x
12/09/2013 at 09:24
AR- Sorry your feeling so sick, I felt like that yesterday. Atleast you have today off :) 10 weeks, wooo!
Flossy- 1 week til scan, exciting! I've had strange dreams too. Which apps have you downloaded?
Weekender- Hope your feeling better soon.
AFM- I am just so tired now and feeling sick much more, which I like in a way! I actually had a nap at work yesterday as I was on my own. Booking in app a week today. I will be 10 plus then so hopefully will hear about my scan sharpish so I can get time off work. Spring cleaning the house tonight as we are putting it on the market this weekend!
12/09/2013 at 09:50
AR - sorry you are feeling so ill. Hope your scan comes through soon!
Flossy - your scan will be here before you know it! I have strange dreams too!
WE - sorry you are ill but good on you taking the day off and resting. You need to look after yourself!
Counter - sorry you had a bad night too and work is busy. Hope it settles down but you'll be home before you know it!
Grif - huge loads of luck, cant wait to see the pic later :)
Bertie - lol at the nap at work! Wish I could!
AFM: Went to pizza express last night and the cinema to see About Time as our date night. Felt to ill after PE that I thought my stomach was going to burst. Think I drank the Appletizer too quickly lol. About Time was a really lovely film and can recommend it :) Felt so tired by the end though as it meant we were up late - I've been going to bed at like 8:30-9pm as I've been so tired. So an 11pm-er killed me! So tired today!
12/09/2013 at 09:59
Browny, we were supposed to see About Time 3 times this week, but I have been too tiredy lol
12/09/2013 at 10:12
Woops think i typed really slow and missed people?
Counter- Work Saturday, that shouldnt be allowed! lol. Hope you have a better night tonight.
Grif- Good luck with your scan!
Browny- I looove pizza expres. We was going to watch about time last night but I was too tired to go so are going to watch it next week.

I read the 'when did you feel #2 moving' thread and could not understand HOW any of those ladies that were super-early felt movement. I was 18 weeks with Harry, in hospital with suspected miscarriage, and it was very clear what it was.
Night before last I had weird flutterings. Didn't say to H, he'd think I was mental. More last night. A tiny bit this morning, and I get wind at the moment, because I am eating like an idiot, and it doesn't feel at all like that. Anyone else? Tell me I'm making it up?!
12/09/2013 at 13:24
You mightnot be going mad counter. The reason i asked was because i thought i felt similar but i didnt want to say incase everyone thought i was nuts!!
12/09/2013 at 13:32
Oh cool. We can be crazies together, lol!
12/09/2013 at 14:47
I think I'd replied on that thread and said I thought I'd felt something over the last few days. But saw him/her do a somersault on the scan and felt nothing, so I began to doubt myself. Will depend on how they lie I suppose. Think baby was just short of 60cm though so they are starting to prob get to a size you could feel.
One day it'll happen, you'll be sure it's baby and be able to say ah so that is what I've been feeling!
12/09/2013 at 15:09
I'm thinking 1.5 inch, can't possibly?! Also, can I ask, although it might be personal, do you ladies think of it as a baby inside you? I struggle to, I don't make that connection in my head. I'm wondering if the 12 wk scan might do that for me...
