Scan this morning! Hope everyone is ok?

Well, this is very weird. New girl syndrome!
Wishing you a good scan Isis. :)

Good luck for your scan Isis, what time is it?
I'm on the train to work, I have zero motivation today. A girl at my work had an emergency section on Sunday after going to the hospital having not felt the baby and issues with the heartbeat when she got there. Her baby boy is here 10 weeks early and quite ill so hoping for some positive news today. Sending them both all the get well vibes going, I can't imagine how she must be feeling.

Hope all goes well today Isis!
Welcome Counter! Lovely to see you over here (and now you've taken my 'new girl' status!
Woke up at half 4 this morning after a really horrible dream and although I drifted off to sleep I didn't really settle and was awake before my alarm went off. Think I'll be grumpy by this evening! I also seemed to have developed a visible little bump overnight, usually it's only been appearing by the end of the day (and I go to bed feeling huge!) but it's definitely there this morning. Asos have a sale on at the moment so I ordered a couple of maternity dresses yesterday. I don't need them yet but one was only £10 so I figured if I like it I can grow into it! Plus I imagine after our next scan if all is well I'll just want to order baby stuff and spend on the little one not on myself.

Good luck Isis, report back!
Counter, it's good to see my 1st tri buddies coming over! Welcome :)
I was up at 2:30am STARVING!! Had two slices of toast and two glasses of milk and that seemed to do the trick but I'm knackered this morning again! Off to toddlers this morning with M then she has gymnastics this afternoon. Got to go to post office and to shops with a return. Also having a decluttering mission in the house, including Ms toys when she's not looking. Can't believe it's Tuesday again already.
Hope everyone else is well xx

My goodness, I type slow! MDD, hope your day picks up and your colleague has good news for you all
Flossy, yay to a bump! :) I got told I was huge yesterday and I didn't think I had grown in last few weeks! What dresses did you get? Tenner is a bargain!

It annoys me that people think they can comment on how big/small you are! I get really self conscious even when people say that I look like I've lost weight (although that was more pre-wedding rather than now!). I bought these two -
And this top
Generally anything I order from ASOS gets returned straight away but figured it was worth a try! Hoping I like the first dress as I have a 30th on Saturday night and all my dresses are too right on the boobs/stomach and since the model isn't hugely pregnant I thought it might work.

Welcome counter! Good to see you in second tri :)
MDd, how scary, sending lots of vibes x
Flossy, hope the clothes are good, I got some stuff from asos and I'm really happy with it.
Weekender, loving the midnight feast lol today sounds busy, make sure you rest!
Back from scan (went straight from school run) and all is perfect with the baby and she's still a girl. Absolutely delighted :D

Isis - Lots of luck, update us all later on.
Counter - Welcome to 2nd tri!
MDD - Oh that's scary, lots of vibes to her. I know what you mean about motivation, I feel like I'm on countdown to mat leave already.
Flossy - Hope the clothes fit, I've had a bit of success with ASOS but with free returns you can't go wrong.
WE - I know what you mean about the hunger, I'm going to be massive at this rate!
AFM - Still on cloud 9 after yesterday. The scan was great but baby wasn't behaving and they couldn't get a view of the heart so bit of a panic until they finally gave us the all clear. Work is really hectic but no motivation to do anything, bring on mat leave :)

Thanks for welcomes! I feel a little emotional! Today is 18 months to the day since we met, 6 months since we completed on our house and 6 months until 'Baxter' is due. So (despite insistence to the contrary) I put a little mention on Facebook and have about a billion likes and notifications, and have today made it to 2nd tri which I was CERTAIN would never happen, ever. A big day in a small way.
Mrs V, fabulous news re your scan. You must be walking on air!!! x
Ooh Isis, great news re scan!! How exciting :)
08/10/2013 at 11:10
That's lovely Counter! We still haven't put anything on Facebook, I think I might wait now until we have our 20 week scan although that feels like a long time away! It's out ten-year anniversary (of becoming a couple, we only got married in March!) and I think it'll be lovely to celebrate before we meet our little one.
Isis, glad all went well! Lovely that you're having a girl. I just can't wait to find out! I keep saying 'he' but over the last week or so I've noticed a few times I've said 'her' which seems to have come out of nowhere as I've always imagined us having a boy first. Maybe it's a sign!
Mrs V I know what you mean! I'm struggling so much with motivation at work as I know I won't be coming back here. I'm already on a bit if a countdown!
08/10/2013 at 12:30
I'm so glad I don't work, I'm sure I wouldn't have the motivation for it!
I had a really strong feeling she was a girl, it's a funny thing is instinct. I'm so glad though and I feel I can start to relax a bit now and look towards the future. Next job, clear out the spare room.

Aww counter that's lovely. I still haven't gone public on Facebook but think its probably about time! I'm seeing my two ex work colleagues tonight and they don't know I'm pregant so it will be a surprise for them!
Isis - So glad the scan went well. Remind me, have you got a girl or boy already? Exciting about doing the room!
08/10/2013 at 17:07
We've got a 4yo boy, everyone keeps saying ooh one of each lol
08/10/2013 at 18:11
it is cute though. If you're going to have one of each I think that's the way around to do it! :)
