Morning ladies, here we are again starting another day.
We have now told friends and family about the baby, they're all really pleased. Apparently my SIL didn't think we'd have any more...F is only 2 give us chance! I was up late texting my friend so I'm going to pay for that today, especially as H was up extra early for work. Toddler group this morning then home to prep for a roast dinner tonight.

Morning WG it's nice to tell your family. I can't wait to be able to tell more people it's so hard keeping it a secret. Only our parents siblings and my managers know at the moment!
AFM, not much going on. 3 weeks til scan day :)

WG that's great that they are all really pleased about baby.
Mrs l I also can't wait to tell people, its hard covering it particularly at work where I've had so much time off for different appointments.
Not much to report. I'm 12 weeks tomorrow but we won't be telling anyone yet until we've had the CVS done tomorrow as there is a risk of miscarriage and had at least the initial results back. Last day at work this week due to the CVS and my grandads funeral so hoping it goes quickly.

How long does it take to get the CVS results? Hope the test goes ok xx

Wg fab news re scan
Morning mrs L
Bunny, as hard as it is, try not to focus on risk of mc, its something like 1% nationally, we asked the person doing ours and her own stats were something like 0.5%, so if you are concerned ask the person performing the scan. The way I was positioned I couldn't see the screen but my h watched the full procedure and W wasn't disturbed/distressed at all. Everything crossed for tomorrow.
Afm, not much going on. Feeling a bit yucky. I'm now not having scan on Sunday my consultant is going to do it on Monday eek! H us away with work, sil on holiday so no one can come with me but my consultant is very good so I feel ok. He will give me nuchal scan appt that day too, hoping I don't end up with 2 nuchal scans like last time as don't think my nerves could take it!
Work today but its all official that iv passed my prescribing course now so I'm getting ready to prescribe as soon as my registration is amended.
Also need to make an Easter bonnet for L tomorrow I hate craft!!!

Tri hopping to send Weather Girl huge congrats on the scan, Bunny lots of love and luck and hugest of congrats to TRF (It's lovely do many of us are doing this again at the same time!) - all the best for your scan on Monday x

MrsL - it's definitely hard to keep a secret like this, isn't it? People kept asking me if we'd have another and I had to kind of lie and say "oh, we'd like to" hehe.
Bunny - We're no long due date buddies but there's only a few days difference between us I think.
TRF - ah that's a shame your H can't be at the scan with you. We'll all be there with you in spirit :-)
Coco - thanks lovely x

Mrs l it takes 2-3 days to get the results for down's, Edwards and pataus then 2-3 weeks for the full chromosome results.
Rf thank you. The hospital said its 2% nationally and 1% at our hospital. I'm trying to think along the lines of if I can carry and give birth to a baby with pataus that survived for 4 and half months when 90% are miscarried or still born my body should be able to cope with a needle poking it. Its good to know that h should be able watch what's happening. That's good that you trust your consultant. Well done you on the prescribing course. My h wants to do that.
WG yeah only 2 days, unless they move me again tomorrow!

bunny, o that might be right with the 2% as amnio is 1% i think, all i know is my drs own stats were low so i was happy iyswim. is your H a nurse? i found the course so hard (im not academic) but there is so much work involved, i literally had no life for 6 months.....finished course and had a night out and ended up with a BFP
good luck for tomorrow.
o and i now have a work dilema. i was given this job on the basis id do my prescribers course and get an immediate promotion, iv passed the course and funding now available for my promotion, contracts getting sorted, boss says by next week when back at work iv to sign contract....i feel im decieving him by not telling him but honestly i dont think we will be telling anyone till at least 20 weeks really and even then im not that fussed about telling people lol, my h says not to tell boss in case i dont get the promotion :-/ but then i think boss would go mad to find out at 20 weeks, although id be working well up to the end any way (all being well ) as its a sit down job iyswim

Rf yes he's a mental health nurse in the community. He loves learning about all the drugs etc. I wouldn't say anything if you want the promotion. They can't not give it to you because your pregnant though. Would you have told them now if the promotion wasn't involved? If not I would keep quiet.
Hello coco, thanks for the good luck.
01/04/2014 at 18:58
no i wouldnt have told them if i wasnt getting a promotion either
i told last place with isaac at 7 weeks as had big bleed and phoned them to say i wouldnt be in, but with L didnt tell till about 14 weeks, tbh i was going off on ML with isaac and because i didnt do a big announcement some people had no clue where i was going the bump obviously didnt give it away
if all goes well then i think il tell boss around 15/16 weeks and tell him i dont want anyone knowing for a while and make a decision about when to tell everyone else after 20 week scan?? possibly
there was quite a few MH nurses on my course, im glad iv done it but at the same time im glad i NEVER have to study it ever again
