Hi GB sounds like a good idea getting your H to deal with the solicitors. Enjoy your afternoon tea, sounds tasty. Since being pg I've only wanted savoury foods and gone off tea too apart from first thing in the morning.
AFM Last day at work today for Easter then have the day off on Tuesday for the scan, so nervous and excited now. Hope everything's ok, think I've built myself up to think something is wrong

Good luck on Tuesdaymrs L,
Gb sounds an absolute nightmare with the move. Hope it's sorted ASAP. I'm the opposite I've gone off savoury , loving twister ice lollies lol
Afm, I'm huge like an Easter egg in a dress. My mum asked if I'd stopped sw?! Really hoping to keep it quiet as long as poss but wondering if giganta bump will give me away friend having 40th party but thankfully I'm working as e eryone would definitely know if I went and wasn't drinking
I also keep having dreams that baby has abnormalities and I'm now torturing myself over whether to request amino (we said with isaacif nuchal normal and there was a bladder/nasal bone etc on scan then no amino but I'm now scaring myself that the only way we'd know is an amino/cvs) will need to speak to h tomorrow
There's limited signal here and its quiet so my mindin overdrive arrrrgh!

GB - Glad your H is dealing with the solicitors, moving is such a stressy time. Have a lovely time today, hopefully that will help you relax a little. I've been wanting sweet and savoury foods!
MrsL - Not long till the scan, it's normal to be anxious x
RF - I've started to sport a bump too, I hope you get to keep your secret for a lot longer. I'm sorry to hear about your dreams, especially with what you've been through. Has your bleeding stopped? x
AFM - Feeling quite nauseous at times, O shat his pants yesterday and I thought I was going to throw up whilst I was cleaning him up. The sore boobs and the achy tummy have calmed down, I'm hoping that's nothing significant.
Hi to everyone else, I'm sure I'll be back on at some point today.

GB its definitely a good idea to let your h deal with your house stuff. Maybe you could have the sandwiches at afternoon tea rather than the cake. I'm the same with tea, I can drink it in the evening but not in the morning.
Mrs l that will be a lovely long weekend. I'm sure things will be fine, not long to wait.
Rf I think a bump is a good sign! Dreams are terrible for making us think! Am I right in thinking your scan for the nuchal measurements isn't far away? You could always see how that goes then decide about the CVS or amnio. Hope you can find enough on holiday to distract yourself.
DS well done you on not managing to be sick! They might have calmed down because the initial stretching has happened.
Bk I saw about your sisters reaction. I'm sure she will come round and just needs time.
AFM I'm quite annoyed at the hospital today. When I spoke to the midwife yesterday she said the other results take 14 working days. She then rang back and left a message to say that if we wanted the full karotype we had to confirm that we would pay for it! No payment had ever been mentioned to us! I rang her and it went to answer phone, but she rang back and basically said we should never have been offered the full karotype as they only do that if you've had a baby with one of those chromosomes or if you know there are issues with baby and its not downs, Edward or pataus. We could get it done but it would be £200 which we can't afford. It also means we will have to wait until the 20 week scan for the gender too. I got quite upset about it as we have been waiting for 2 weeks wondering if its them when the phone rings only to be told that they were never going to be ringing us back. We've also not told a lot of friends and extended family as we were waiting for those results. H rang her back to explain how upset I was and why and that it was more about our psychological well-being too and if they offer us something it should be done but she isn't budging. She said that she would ring the company that do it and see if they noted the gender but I don't hold out much hope.

GB - I really hope you exchange soon, and that you have a lovely day out.
MrsL - yay to last day at work this week, hope the days til the scan fly by for you!
RF - how far along are you? Hope you manage to keep it quiet until you're ready to tell.
DS - *vom* I feel for you! no way could I deal with a dirty nappy right now.
Oh Bunny, that sounds very incompetent of them! There comes a point where your mental health suffers because of the worry and you think that in their line of work they would understand that...I hope it gets sorted for you
AFM - Went to the solicitors this morning and signed all the purchase and sale missives, so we are officially moving in 11 days! Now I really need to get started on my essay that is due one week today. Only working Sunday this week, thank goodness, as I'm knackered. No gym for me today as I am going to pack boxes instead. I have discovered ginger tea from Holland and Barrett which I think is helping, and peppermint tea is good too, but I've always loved that. I am drinking loads of sparkling water at the minute, and ice lollies are a godsend also. Haven't been physically sick yet, hoping this continues. Only worry is quite sharp pains on both sides of my stomach, and also low down. They only last about a minute though, and I only get maybe a dozen a day. Hoping its a good sign, boobs are still sore and lines are getting steadily darker on ICs. We will likely have an early scan sometime next month, have any of you had one?

Bunny - That's really not on, how frustrating and upsetting for you, I hope something is something is sorted out for you, massive hugs xx
Saffron - how exciting about the house move! I hope you manage to get your essay done. I had an early scan with L at 8+5, we saw her heart beating as well as her little arm and leg bugs wriggling. Try not to worry about the pains, it's just everything stretching out as the growth is very fast in the first few weeks x
17/04/2014 at 13:14
Thanks DS, very reassuring. I think we will go at around 8 weeks, all I'm interested in is hearing that magical heartbeat.
17/04/2014 at 13:15
Or perhaps that should be seeing the heartbeat.
17/04/2014 at 14:09
Saffron - that's great news about your house! We had an NHS early scan at 9 weeks because of the CVS we had done later. As ds said we saw the heartbeat and tiny arms and legs, looked quite like a kidney bean still!
Well the midwife hasn't rung yet but I'm not sure I would actually want to talk to her today. Oh well trying to think positively and will be letting some friends know later that I haven't told yet. Must get on with some household chores but really don't have the motivation!
17/04/2014 at 14:19
Although I have sorted out a ticker! Its amazing how you can waste time so easily. I should probably go to 2nd tri at some point...
17/04/2014 at 20:39
Evening. Not sure anyone will be about.
RF - hope you manage to hide it. Sorry you are having such awful dreams. Hope they are a one off.
DS - I think I'd have thrown up at that without being pregnant!
Bunny - so sorry about your results not being what you expected. Huge hugs. That must be really upsetting for you.
Saffron - congratulations on the house move. We had an early scan at 7+6. Saw the hb and a kind of baby shape. I'd hold out till 8 weeks as it's a lot clearer.
Well we have finally exchanged! It went to the wire and at one point we had brought but not sold so were in a really dodgy situation. I thought poor H was going to have a heart attack and I felt really stressed. But it's done and we move next Friday. Afternoon tea was lovely - even managed a cuppa. Exhausted one and had to resort to chippy tea as we were just knackered after the stress! Onwards and upwards tho! X
17/04/2014 at 20:44
I think I will be somewhere between 7-8 weeks GB, depending how I'm feeling. That's fab news on the house, congratulations!!
17/04/2014 at 20:51
Thank you! We really thought it would all fall through at one point. Between 7-8 weeks a good time to aim for.
17/04/2014 at 21:22
That's great news about your house gb!
