Morning all, I couldn't see another first Tri thread so here goes.
I have my first MW appointment at 10 today and so far I'm still in bed! I'm soo tired but haven't had a decent sleep in weeks. L and I slept on the sofa for two hours yesterday afternoon while A watched DVDs (bad mummy!) i was just starting to nod off last night when L came through to our bed. He tossed and turned all night and him and H both grind their teeth, drives me mad!
Hoping I get my early scan appointment today from MW.
I'm watching my 2 yr old nephew and 5 month old twin niece and nephew this afternoon, along with my 3 and 4 yr olds so no nap this afternoon!
Hope everyone is well x

Morning LR hope your app goes well and you get a scan date. You've got your hands full this afternoon! I don't think I could cope with that! Hopefully you'll be so tired you'll have a good sleep tonight.
Not much from me, scan tomorrow afternoon, I'm nervous but just keeping busy and not thinking about it!x

LR, I hope you get an early scan date. It's good to have something to look forward to. Good luck this afternoon, is be pulling my hair out after all those kiddies!
MDD, eek, not long until scan now lovely! What time is it at tomorrow afternoon?
AFM, well after the scare I had yesterday I am now on knicker watch! No more blood today and I'm hoping it stays that way. I keep looking at the picture the sonographer gave me yesterday and willing baby to stay nice and comfy. I was just starting to relax and try and enjoy the pregnancy, I'm not sure I'm going to ever be able to do that! I guess not long until I'll be over to 2nd tri, when do we move?

LR - Hopefully you will get an early scan. How far along are you?
MDD - Hope you manage to keep busy and I'm sure the scan will go well tomorrow.
Imp - I'm sure it was just a one off. I know what you mean about trying to enjoy the pregnancy, its hard when you have experienced a loss. I think 2nd tri is at 14 weeks?
AFM - Need to phone the midwife this morning to get into the system but I'm really nervous for some reason! Hopefully then they will let the consultant know that we saw last time because we will be consultant led. I'm hoping that means a early scan too!

Morning ladies! Hope it's ok to join in?
LR, hope the appt goes well and you get a scan date. You're a glutton for punishment, I only have my nearly 4yo to look after and that's enough!
Mdd, good luck for the scan!
Imp, I thought 2nd tri was 13w? I hope your knicker watch is entirely fruitless and it was just one of those things. I think once you've seen a heartbeat then it's high chance everything's ok.
Mrs V, hope you get on ok and can get an early scan. I spoke to lovely mw yesterday which was reassuring.
Afm, I'm only 4+3 so it's early days but I'm trying to remain positive after a mmc in dec 11. I did a cbd this morning which said pregnant 2-3 so that's good, got another for next week. I swear I've lost my marbles lol hopefully the EPU will give me an early scan but if not we'll book a private one as I can't wait til 12 weeks.

Hi mrs V, I think you're right. I'm not sure after a loss things will ever be as they should be, just a bit different. I hope you get an early scan sorted and get to see your little bean.
Hi Isis, I hope the EPU give you an early scan. I had a MMC earlier this year, so i can relate to how you're feeling about an early scan. In the end we ended up paying for ours as the EPU weren't cooperative, but in my eyes it was money well spent. I hope your EPU are a bit more reasonable.

LR, hope it goes ok with the midwife. Good luck with the kiddies this afternoon!
MDD, good luck for your scan lovely, got everything crossed for you.
Imp, so glad the bleeding has stopped, that must have been so scary! I think you could move over to 2nd tri any time now really, must be lovely to be leaving 1st, I can't wait.
MrsV, I understand why you feel nervous. I do too! Hope you get that early scan.
Isis, I know what you mean, I've lost my marbles too! We've booked a private scan in case the nhs won't offer us one (probably won't). Glad your CBD has gone up, don't read too much into the figures though, everyone is different and even if it takes longer to change again that isn't automatically a bad thing.
AFM, I have a rotten cold. Midwife on Thursday. Feeling really panicky still. Just wish I could relax and try to enjoy this pregnancy.
25/06/2013 at 10:25
Isis - We are almost the same date wise! I'm still testing on my cheap pregnancy tests so I've lost the plot too!!
Imp - I am considering an early scan privately this time!
Phoned midwife and am booked in for 10th July. I said I was confused about my dates as by LMP date I'm 5+4 but I know I'm not as far on as that! Bit naughty but might get me an earlier scan than at 13 weeks last time!! She doesn't think I'll be scanned any earlier than 12 weeks this time so private scan might be the only way to go for reassurance!
25/06/2013 at 10:26
OB missed you ! Glad to see you here. I know the feeling totally. Glad I'm not the only one considering an early private scan!
25/06/2013 at 12:09
Hello OB, sorry ypu've got a rotten cold. It's more of a nuisance when pregnant too, when all you can take it paracetamol. Hope it passes soon.
Mrs V, Glad you've got your booking in appt. My cycles are a bit longer than average so I always seem to get a fairly early scan too, oh well, it means you'll get to see the baby sooner.

Hi ladies, I actually attempted to start the thread thus morning but then LO woke up and this has been my 1st chance to get on since!!
Off to see consultant this afternoon for a huge argument. Oh sorry, I mean pleasant chat about my planned homebirth :-). Will try to check in later to let you know if was - arguement or the latter :-)
25/06/2013 at 16:12
Well, it was same bloody consultant I saw last time when overdue!! I had a huge argument with him. He had clearly remembered me & had read my notes from last time too. He was super nice. Haha. Says he will support homebirth plan. He suggests I talk to midwife about supporting during crowning. Sounds weird!
25/06/2013 at 18:45
Imp, I know for the peace of mind it'll be worth the money but we're quite skint at the moment so if we don't have to pay out it'll be better.
OB, hope you get rid of the cold soon, it's rotten when you can't take decent drugs!
Mrs V, hope you get a scan sooner rather than later.
Horsefan, glad your appt went well. I had a homebirth last time, it was amazing. All being well I'll have one this time too.
I'm absolutely exhausted, is it just me?
25/06/2013 at 19:02
Hf, glad it went ok and he agreed to a home birth. No idea about the other stuff, I can't give it too much thought without terrifying myself!
Isis, I'm exhausted all of the time. I just cannot seem to get enough sleep. So no, not just you. It doesn't make it feel any better but at least you're not alone.

Evening ladies, just a quick update from me.
MW appointment went fine. All paperwork really. The MW was my folks neighbour! I've known her since I was a little girl so that's a bit weird.
I have an early scan booked for Friday afternoon so should know then how far along I am. I still think 7-8 weeks.
Also have my booking in/bloods next Thursday.
I forgot how many appointments are involved. Going to be a nightmare child are wise, especially over the summer holidays!
25/06/2013 at 20:16
LR I didn't think you had as many appts second/subsequent times? I've got my booking in and bloods appointment all in one between 8 and 9 weeks then I'm guessing not a lot else til 16w bar scan?
25/06/2013 at 20:25
I had first MW appointment today, scan Friday, bloods and booking in next Thursday. Then will have 12 week scan probably 3 weeks later (that's guessing I'm 7-8 weeks just now.
Hopefully nothing else after that for a while!
