Morning C, I hope you have a nice day, so lovely to have done sunshine, it is the middle of may after all!!
Loads of vibes for Imp for the scan tonight, I hope your kept busy today so you can keep your mind off it as much as you can.
Jem I saw your post from last night, I have the worst bloating, honestly my 'bump' seems huge, I'm struggling to cover it up but haves aged so far with cardigans and scarfs. I know it's just bloating but it's a very obviously belly which I didn't have before!!
Nothing much to report from me, my scans at quarter past 9 tomorrow so I'll be able to get it out the way early. Also keeping everything crossed that all is ok! I forgot to ask, HF did they manage to see everything on an abdominal scan or did you have an internal? I've already had two internals so not too bothered about that, just wondering!
Hope everyone's well x

Chimpanzee, how lovely to have sunshine, enjoy buying summery bits and pieces.
Missdeedee, not long to wait now, all my vibes coming your way!
AFM- well the day is here. I am absolutely dreading it now, I think I'm going to just freeze when I get there. Got a really busy day at work so that'll help until 5pm, and then I've told H to get home ASAP so I don't have too long on my own before the scan. I'm hoping it's an abdominal scan, I had to have 3 internal scans last time, and the first one particularly was very uncomfortable. Anyway, I really can't say much more, I could cry just thinking about it too much.

Morning ladiesweeks, rnjo
C - Yaay for 12weeks enjoy your shopping!
MDD - yes they managed to see everything on normal external scan. No internal this time (phew!)
Imp - got my fingers & toes crossed for you. Staying busy is good :-)
AFM - was out shopping all day yesterday - Tesco at 8:30am, then shopping centre by 10am (getting LO some summery stuff & new shoes), then lunch and off to Ikea. Go me. LOL. MIL came round for dinner last night. We told her our news and she said she thought something like this was on the cards, asked when it was due and then she babbled on about some folk band she saw a few months ago. She said later, I'd slipped up when talking about marathon training. My friends & I have decided to do 2015 London Marathon (I won't have time to train for 2014 one as will be giving birth at Xmas and BFing a newborn)

jem i saw ur bump pic, very impressive!!! im not sure i have one yet and if i do u wouldnt be able to see it under all the blubber!
Chimp Im glad your sickness tablets are working!!
missdeedee, i hope today goes quickly for your!!
And for you Imp! I hope you have a nice & understanding person doing it for you!
HF that made me giggle about ur MIL babbling on about a folk band, u did say she was weird!
AFM- still got nausea but no where near as bad as yday. it was horrible all day! I took work home with me incase it was the same today but im feeling a lot better. Got to the office and the power was off! Last time this happened (yep, it happens alot!) it was off until 3! Was going to have a cup of tea and then go home but it came back on about 10 mins ago. Damn that efficiant IT department!
Im wearing the trousers I got from my MIL today with half an elasticated waist! they are SOOOOO comfy! I think i'll live in these for the next 7 months!
16/05/2013 at 15:42
Wow, it's been a quite day here today!
Im about to head home in a bit & i don't know if I'll get back on tonight so I just wanted to say Good Luck Imp for tonight! I hope you have kept busy today!
And incase I don't get on early enough in the morning, Good Luck tomorrow missdeedee!
Will be thinking of you both!!
16/05/2013 at 16:15

Thanks for your vibes and thoughts HF and mrs Bass. I've finished work now do just trying to keep myself occupied watching tv, it's not working!
16/05/2013 at 16:24

Good luck tonight imp and for tomorrow MDD x
16/05/2013 at 18:52
Chimpanzee - yay for reaching 12 weeks, I'm glad your tablets are kicking in and you're feeling better
Missdeedee - in case I don't get on before you go for your scan in the morning I just wanted to say good luck and I hope all is well for you. I'm glad someone sees my end of day posts lol. Unfortunately I never wear cardigans or anything really that would hide it. I've been lucky enough that I've been able to keep my coat on at work but it's supposed to be warm next week so no idea how that will work!! I've expanded out of all my clothes already even though I know it's just bloating.
Imp, I hope your scan goes well tonight and you come back later with a positive update
HorseFan I have no idea how you managed all that!!!! Just sitting at my desk all day is wearing me out!
MrsBass I'm glad you're better than yesterday! I've had the same problem with work and networks and it's so frustrating when they get everything working again!
AFM I spent all day worrying that I had no symptoms then at about half 2 the nausea hit and I've been feeling terrible ever since... It's reassuring but still not very nice! I'm sure my boss knows something is up too, he keeps mentioning the arrangements he's making for his other depot with regards to a girl who's going off on maternity leave in 6 weeks, more than I would have expected it to be mentioned anyway. But then the size of my stomach at the moment I'm fairly certain I've got no hope of keeping it a secret for another 5 weeks! Oh and I've just remembered about some training I've got to do that might pose an issue... seperate post coming up!

Hi all, been thinking of Imp all day but not had chance to come on! Good luck Imp xxx I'll be checking for an update.
Quieter thread today!
Chimp - Glad the tablets are helping, I wouldn't have been able to carry on without mine!
Mdd - Good luck for tomorrow Mdd xxx
HF - Sounds a bit like my MiL! It doesn't matter what you try and talk about, she always changes the subject to her life!
Mrs Bass - Our IT system crashed this morning but was back on within 15mins so I feel your pain!
Afm - I had a chiropractor's appointment this morning and I am so glad I went! Turns out it's my pelvis that's causing the trouble in my hips and she thinks she can help me so feeling happy :-) people have started complimenting my little emerging bump which I love!
16/05/2013 at 19:00
Cross posted with you Jem! The nausea is horrible :-( hope it doesn't give you too much grief over the coming weeks!
16/05/2013 at 19:04
Just saw we crossed posts! I'm hoping the nausea is my body's way of reassuring me that everything's ok, but I'm sure there are better ways to be reassured!!
I'm really glad the chiropracter has helped you, hope you manage to sort the pain out
16/05/2013 at 19:43
Defo Jem, I started getting a bit annoyed with people saying 'oh it's good that you're being sick, means everything is ok'...yeah it's brilliant when you spend a couple of weeks in bed on a diet of dry toast and bottled water!
16/05/2013 at 19:53
Chimpanzee- hello! Yay to being 12 weeks!
Missdeedee- sending lots of vibes for tomorrow :-)
Imp- im thinking about you currently as your scan is anytime now. Sending huge positive vibes!!
HF- wow..very busy day for you. Superwoman!
Mrs Bass- glad the nausea has subsided a little. Boooo to sickness!
Jem- hope the nausea isn't too bad for you but can torlly relate that any symptoms are reassuring! :-)
BE- booo to the pelvis probs but happy that they will be able to offer a solution! Cant wait until my stomach looks like baby instead of bloated flab!
AFM- 10+2 today, feeling much better. Still a bit of nausea as soon as I wake up and wretching, bit of sickness ( lovely, sorry!) still feeling tired but not as much!
Got my scan letter through yesterday, for next wednesday afternoon, eeks. Im excited but sooo nervous! We are also getting the keys for our house on wednesday, so a very busy day. At least it's keeping me preoccupied and not too stressy!
Hi to all that follow! :-)
16/05/2013 at 22:05
Hey all!!!! I'm sorry it's so late but I wanted to update you anyway.
It was all good, we saw a little bean and a heartbeat. I cried when she told me and showed it to me! Bean is measuring 7+1 which is roughly where I thought I was. I don't know what that makes my Edd, but I'm guessing around Xmas.
Thank you all so much for your support and vibes over the last few weeks and days.
Also, massive vibes for missdeedee and Jem for tomorrow. They worked for me, I'm sure they'll work for you both too.x
16/05/2013 at 22:06
Imp, that's brilliant. So pleased the scan went well x
