Morning every one.
Well it's scan day, I am really scared and have to wait till 2pm.
chimpanzee Good luck for your scan today!

Good luck Vivixon and chimpanzee for your scans today, I can't wait to hear your update later and see the pictures of your little bubbas!
I've got my booking in appointment this morning. I've filled all my notes in so I suspect it'll just be a chat, she'll take some blood and I'll give a urine sample. I've decided to take my early scan notes and picture with me, so that she can update my notes. I was going to lie and see if they'd give me an early scab, but I didn't want to jinx everything so I've decided to tell the truth. If I want another scan I'm just going to suck it up and pay for it.

Ooh the booking in appointment is exciting, that's when it starts to feel real.
21/05/2013 at 08:15
VV hope the morning passes quickly for you and look forward to seeing your updated photo of your bubs!
Chimpanzee hope your scan goes well, looking forward to your pic too!
Imp I still think its terrible they didn't offer you a scan, hope you get a good midwife. I did my booking in at epu on fri and I'm under the care of epu until 12 weeks (rather than the midwife) so don't need to go see the midwife (penny I know you asked me this last night) so that's good, one less appointment. Imp Do you think you'll book another scan? Did you look round to as if anyone has offers on at any of the scan places?
AFM it's a beautiful day today! I'm still feeling a bit sicky but it seems to be hunger related and no actual sickness. Brown CM is gone again, Penny the nurse on fri told me that at this stage I will probably have it a few times so not to worry.

Hey missdeedee! How lovely to have some gorgeous weather, it's grey here today!
I'm seriously considering another scan. The cheapest I can find is 80 quid, we've got a week off at the start of June so we've discussed maybe getting one then. I'm assuming as we'll be able to go during the day we won't need to book too far in advance. I'm going to decide nearer to the time based on how I feel.

V - good luck for scan
Imp - the EPU told me to add gumph about early scan to my notes
AFM - stupid Tele broke. Gotta wait in for virginmedia this afternoon, annoying, so gotta get everything else done this morning (horse, take curtain samples back, local market for veggies etc).
Trying to decide if I could make a,quilt. Bearing in mind I can bearly sew a button on. There is a course local to my sister she wants to go on and has invited me ..... However she is much better at this 1950's housewife stuff than me. She even owns a sowing machine. Trying to work out if I could pay her to make a quilt. Trouble is I don't think she has time - she is in final stages of her PhD and her&boyfriend run a goat farm!

Hi MDD - where are you?? can we have your weather please? Its drizzly and gloomy here
21/05/2013 at 08:54
Imp that sounds like a good idea, you might decide that you don't feel you need it.
HF I'm in never sunny scotland so a big change and surprise for us! It's bright sunshine, blue skies and actually warm!

Good Luck to Vivixon & Chimp for your scans today, sendign lots of vibes!!!
Imp you suspect right, at mine she went through my form and added all the details to the computer system! I agree with Vivixon, it's when it felt official for me. I had a midwife!!!
missdeedee, glad you've had some reassurance about the CM!
HorseFan that is so annoying! ours broke the other week and I made my H bring the one from the bedroom down! You have reminded me that we should call the repair shop, it should be sorted by now! The course sounds like great fun!
AFM- i got home last night to my letter with my scan appointment! yay! The power of MD!! It is June 6th so 2 weeks and 2 days! So excited and nervous now!
I I was stood infornt of the mirror this morning trying to work out if there was any bump under my blubber (it was not a pretty sight!) & my party pooper husband just said he thought it was too early for a bump to be showing! :-(
I sent out an email to people at work y.day about my leaving do, they keep asking what im going to do and how rubbish it is that Im going to have to join the temp unit! I really want to say, "well its only for a few months then I'll be a mummy!" but im just having to nod and say "well, we'll see what happens"

Good luck for today VV. Scan is a week today so on countdown now. Getting some backache which is worrying me though. I swear I have felt a few little movements but don't know if I'm imagining it. They do say you can feel it earlier with a second... Who knows?!
21/05/2013 at 11:23
On phone so going to be very brief. just wanted to wish vivixon and chimpanzee good luck for their scans. imp i hope your booking appointment went well.
I have a second appointment with the gp tomorrow and Im hoping to actually be referred to a midwife this time.
21/05/2013 at 13:14
Mrs Bass you must have been desperate to tell someone at that point! It's hard not mentioning it, a girl I work quite closely with (although she's based in London so it's all phone/email based) told me last week she's pregnant. I was so close to blurting out I was too but obvously wouldn't dream of telling anyone at the moment.
Mermaid I saw your other post, sounds like it could very well be movements!
Hi Jem, hope your ok and you get your midwife referral. I forgot to ask, did you speak to your boss and sort out about the training coming up?
I really need some help with this bloating ladies, is there anything I can do or is it something I'm eating? It's awful! I took a photo last night and will show you, I look huge and I'm struggling to hide this! Any tips?? ETA photo, I'm covering it up with cardigans at the moment but I when I sit down you can notice it. I know this is just bloating but it's brutal!
21/05/2013 at 13:24
I just wanted to pop back on to say I'm the same with the bloating. I've started trying to wear different things to work as I'm struggling to hide it. At the weekends it's easier as I can just wear leggings with a long loose top. Work is going to be a problem for the next 4 weeks though!
Booking in appt took about 20 minutes, she's given me my scan date which is the 13th of June. I hope it's not really an unlucky number!!
21/05/2013 at 13:29
Vivixon, enjoy your scan today! Hope the wait didn't seem too long :o)
lmp, hope the booking in goes well :o)
Missdd, I hope the sickness doesn't get too bad! No advice on the bloating other then than the obvious, no gassy drinks or food x
HF, worth a go, if it doesn't work then you have tried! Looking forward to seeing your efforts!
MrsB, 2 weeks will go quickly even if it doesn't feel like it!
Mermaid, have replied on the other thread but I definitely felt flutters from 10 weeks and now I am 12+5 I am getting kicked. Yay!
Jem, why weren't you referred last time? We don't have to have GP appointments here, just book a mw appointment.
AFM, definitely confirmed as 12+5, not a bad guess eh? Baby is looking wonderful, kicking their little legs about and turning over. Got a lovely photo which I will upload in a bit. All good, all happy! :o) Due on 28th November!
21/05/2013 at 13:32
I've not told anyone at work and I've still got 5 and a half weeks to hide this. I'm struggling already! Like you imp I'm living in oversized tops at the weekend but I can't at work as its all 'office wear'. Glad your booking in went ok, I think that will be lucky 13 for you :) and only 3 weeks on Thursday!!x
21/05/2013 at 13:33
Oh yay C, that's great news! Glad it went well x
21/05/2013 at 13:42
Here is baby H. I cried for the whole scan and OH looked like he was about to aswell but he held it together. I didn't believe I would get to this point again, a 12 week scan, the most I could seem to get to was 7 weeks. But here is baby H, my wonderful little kicker! :o)
OH said after that this was the most wonderful moment of his life, which made me cry more lol!
21/05/2013 at 13:47
Ahhhh, look at your little bubba chimpanzee! I'm so happy for you, I bet you're both over the moon. Yayyy for you all!
21/05/2013 at 13:50
He looks like an alien! LOL. Yes, completely over the moon but scared lol.
21/05/2013 at 13:53
missdeedee, its so hard. Im still in touch with a couple fo girls i used to work with a few years ago and one of them told us someone we know is pregnant and then my other friend announced she was!! I wanted so say "ME TOO!!!!"
Its getting harder and i know it is driving H mad! only a couple more weeks though!
I am so bloated too, at work im basicly living in the linen trousers with elasticed waist! Baggy tops and cardis too!!
Im- how exciting that you got your scan date at the same time!!! not long now. Now you know when it will be, has it helped you decide about another private scan?
Chimp that photo is so cute!!!! I can't imagine my H ever saying something like that!!
Vivixon will be about to go in for her's now!! lots of vibes!!!
