well there were no fox gangbangs last night so I managed to sleep, however the time has come that I really officially can no longer sleep on my tummy :-( I'm gutted
counting down to my scan on Friday! Although this is turning into the most photographed baby ever, rod said it will come out wearing sunglasses haha!!

Glad you slept better last night. Not long until your scan, exciting.
AFM- tired. Didn't sleep again and can't blame H this time :( Spent most if yesterday feeling sick, was in bed at 5pm. Had fruit for tea as I couldn't face anything else!
Got my booking appt this morning, dreading going back to the hospital. Hope it's quick and I don't get kept waiting around.

Morning all :)
Mon - the foxes gangbang sounds hilarious the other night, at least you managed to get some rest last night :) Have you bought one of those pregnancy pillow thingies? I think I will get one as my hips seem to ache in the morning. Haha baby and the shades :P
Imp - be thinking of you, hope it all goes well and you come back with a promising update :)
VT - brill news about your scan, so pleased :)
Bad heartburn today, that will teach me to have cereal and a sliced banana on top :) Can't believe it but I'm 11wks today woooohoooo!! :D
Hellooo all who follow xx

Mon - 'no pictures, no pictures please - dont you know who I am?!!' Yay for the Scan friday - bet they are old news for you now haha!
Imp - Sorry you are feeling so rotten :( Hope you brighten up soon. Try not to think about too much at the hospital, its going to be hard, I'm dreading having to go back to mine for scans etc, cos last time i was there was for an ERPC. I watched the thing about people who are scared of flying last night and they had experts on brains etc and they said that the brain has a way of generalising things, meaning that if you hgave a bad experience flying once, you will automatically believe that every other flight will be bad too. It made me think of us, because we are convinved our pregnancies will end badly, simply because we havent had a good experience yet. Its irrational really, we will be fine xxx
LeeLee happy 11 weeks! Sorry about the heartburn, i;ve got that to look forward to!
AFM - well, 4+5 today and 'today I am pregnant and thankful' this will be my mantra from now on. Booked a private scan for 10 weeks 4 days yday, meaning that all being well, we can tell our family at that time and not worry about people aksing why I'm not drinking at New Years Eve - big family party - i do worry ive perhaos jumped the gun a little, being that i havent had an early scan yet, but hey ho. What will be will be!
Wasnt feeling sick this morning which scared me but its creeping in now, very tired, got a headache, crampy and my boobs are very sore. All good signs. xx

On phone so unable to do personals - but hope everyone is ok today!
I have my flu jab later this morning - absolutely hate injections so not looking forward to it!
19/11/2013 at 10:03
I'm booking up for mine when i go to the docs next week Vix, let me know how it goes, I'm not a fan either!
19/11/2013 at 11:26
Had my booking appt. I cried again, just like last week. I'm worried they're going to refer me to mental health as she was asking me loads of questions about anxiety and how I'm feeling.
On a positive note they have said I can have my mw appts at the community hospital after 12 weeks. I am so relieved as I hate the main hospital and it holds nothing but bad news for me. I just hope I get that for now.
19/11/2013 at 11:27
Oh and I'm low risk still depsite last Although I have to be under the consultant until after the nuchal/amnio whatever happens and then I can just be midwife led.
19/11/2013 at 11:31
Sorry it was hard for you Imp :( Its completely understandable though dont be too hard on yourself xxx Good news about the other hospital too xxx
19/11/2013 at 11:46
fab news IMP, also its alright to be refered it wont mean social services will deem you an unfit mother ! it just means they are looking after you and taking into consideration everything you have been through, to make sure you dont make yourself ill with worry
AFM i just checked and can have my gender scan on december 22nd! our plan is for chris to find out, and buy an outfit and wrap it up under the tree and then i will open it xmas day and find out what we are having!
19/11/2013 at 11:48
Mon you know how much i LOVE this idea!!
19/11/2013 at 11:58
Mon that's a lovely Christmas present!
I know they are just trying to look after me, I just don't want them to think i am like this normally. I haven't ever suffered with anxiety or depression before, I just feel sad about last time still and anxious about this time. It's a crazy mix of emotions which has turned me into a jibbering wreck.
19/11/2013 at 11:59
Its completely normal Imp. You are still grieving xxx
19/11/2013 at 12:05
imp whatever you have told them will only be in relation to these circumstances so they will know its pregnancy related. its if you start saying every day situations are making you anxious or that your husband beats you and your house is a crack den that they worry xxx
19/11/2013 at 12:21
Yep - better not tell them that stuff Imp! x
19/11/2013 at 13:22
Monnie - yay for no fox gangbangs and another scan!
Imp - you understandably feel weepy and upset, like Rod said you're still grieving. Also, please don't worry about a mental health referral (if it even happens) because they are there to look after your mental health not refer you to social services or see how fit you are as a mother. I know there is such a stigma attached to mental health services but please don't panic about it, I work in mental health and there's nothing to be worried about xx
Vix - ouch for the flu jab, I've never known an injection ache like that afterwards! I don't have it personally as it knocks me off my feet
LeeLee - Happy 11 weeks! Can you take anything for heartburn? I've heard Ranitidine is fine in pregnancy
Rodders - glad you're feeling iller (strange thing to say haha)
AFM -Nothing to report. Feeling fine but it still hasn't sunk in even after the scan!
Hi to everyone else
19/11/2013 at 13:44
Rodders - really good to hear you are getting symptoms (in a nice way of course haha!) We had an early scan and it was mindblowing all that worrying and then there it is, such a relief, I know its only current at the time, but made me more relaxed :) I also told some family and work after the scan as I have no annual leave left and with the appointments and scans etc coming up, I had to tell my directors that I would be off work for a few appointments, feels great at not keeping it a secret any more.
Vix - I've gotta book my flu jab too :( Hope you got on ok?
Imp - I wanna give you a hug, it's not surprising you've been emotional lately but smashing news about the hospital and hopefully being midwife led after the tests, I hope I can be midwife led at that stage but probably not :(
Mon - what a fabulous idea!! How lovely :)
VT - hi, glad everything went well with the scan, what a relief that is. Yep I have the Tesco Ranitidine tablets, I asked the midwife if it was ok and she said yes, luckily.
19/11/2013 at 14:50
LeeLee when was your early scan? I think I will have to tell my boss about it once ive had the early dating scan because I dont want to use all my annual leave for hospital / midwife appts. I dont want to tell anyone else at work though, and we've said we wont tell our parents til after our 10 week private scan. x
19/11/2013 at 14:51
VT - thanks! the sicky feeling has gone but I'm generally feeling a bit out of sorts today.
Glad all went well with the scan - I'm not surprised its not sunk in, it probably wont til bubs is in your arms!
19/11/2013 at 17:39
Flu jab wasn't half as bad as I thought it would be, apparently the day after your arm really aches, so will look forward to that tomorrow!
Had the 2nd half of my booking appointment, lots of form filling in again! She did phone up and book my 12 week scan though so have that booked for 6th December when I will be 12+1 :)
