Morning Coco. Woohoo for confirming things at the doctors and being in the system. Hope you enjoy feeding the ducks and soft play! (Well O will enjoy the soft play, I'm sure you will be more into having a cup of tea and letting him play!)
A let me have a fairly good night last night, only woke a couple of times and went back down again quickly, so I feel fairly refreshed. Starting to get a bit panicky about the age gap but I know they change so much at this age so we've got some time, plus he'll start nursery soon and everyone says that brings them on quite a lot. Got a friend coming round in the afternoon, apart from that just planning a lazy day really. Am supposed to be doing Christmas cards but I can't find my address book anywhere so there's no point... I'll just have to put a message out on Facebook to apologise to the family! Hopefully they'll understand! Pregnancy-wise just waiting for the symptoms to start really.

Glad A let you catch up on some sleep last night! I wouldn't worry too much about the age gap...O is 20.5 months now and he is becoming much more independent every day...I think you could find issues with any age gap if you looked hard enough, you just adapt to what you have iyswim. My gap will be 2 years 4 months, and I'm glad it's not going to be bigger as I want them fairly close in age so they grow up together etc...there was 7 & 9 years between me and my brothers so it's what I missed growing up!

Morning- oh no, afternoon!
Coco glad you are in the system, makes it seem more real somehow.
Saisi- glad you got a better nights sleep. I've gave up sending xmas cards about 3 years ago, I just found I was sending them to everyone and they were sending me one back.
AFM- dreadful nights sleep again and I feel like shite today! Got a banging headache, feel exhausted and sick. This is certainly making me wish away the next few days, after Friday I've got no work until the 6th of Jan!

Hello ladies. I am very VERY tentatively joining you. Got a faint bfp at 3+5 on Thurs 5th confirmed with better tests the following Tuesday. After my last loss I am very very nervous, so getting a lot of private care to keep an eye on the pregnancy. I didn't have any early bloods or scans before my last mc and from decreasing symptoms am sure it died before the 7 week mc, so this time if things do go wrong, I'd like some warning, not the shock of last time.
Anyway, my blood test at 19dpo was bhcg 577 and progesterone 88.6. Bhcg at 23dpo was 3981. I have a scan next Monday at 6+2 and am hoping and praying the thing hasn't decided to implant on or near my fibroid (game over if it has).
I haven't told my NHS midwife yet, since I am scared to get on their system only to inform her of another loss. Last time I was booked at 6 weeks and then look what happened. Maybe if the scan goes OK I'll tell her after Christmas and get booked in sometime in the New Year. I'm not sure. I'm not really ready to admit to "the system" that I'm pregnant again, and the private clinic I'm going to is just lovely. (They could see me for everything including the delivery except they use delivery suites at a hospital I really don't want to give birth at, otherwise I'd do it).
So, here we go again. Round 2. All being well EDD 16th August, and I'm 5+3 today.
Look forward to hopefully having some good tri buddies again xx

Coco - that's true about finding positives and negatives to any gaps, and we did want a small gap!
Imp - hope Friday comes round quickly so you can have a well deserved break! I agree it does end up with everyone just sending round to each other. Really an email would do!
Barefoot - Got everything crossed for your scan on Monday. Glad you've found a good clinic to support you xxx

Coco - glad you're in the system now
Saisi - glad you had a good night's sleep - makes such a difference
Imp - hope you feel better soon and the rest of the week flies by for you
BF - yey and welcome! Glad you found some great care. We are super close as my EDD is 04 August!
AFM - spent ages trying to get through to Kingston hospital to be found they have no record of me so i can self-refer myself by emailing a form which I did. Will chase up in a couple of days. Also said I wouldn't hear from them with a scan date until probably a week before the scan date - bit annoying as I have clients and stuff so would liek some more notice.
Another day down and my scan is on saturday. Also ate so many quality street at work today I felt sick.
