Lots and lots of luck Imp for your scan today. Thinking of you and can't wait to see a new photo of your little dancer xxx
I'm off to see the MW for my 16 wk appointment this morning. Then I'm going to buy some new pillows on the way home - I hate my pillows and can't wait to get some nice new ones! I've been putting it off for ages.

Morning Fig and good luck to Imp on your scan today!
H and I are looking after youngest niece for a couple of hours this morning whilst SIL takes middle niece for a hospital check up. I'm still being lazy but could do with getting up and doing the ironing before they get here.
I've now signed up for birthing classes to start in April and have arranged to have some maternity photos done in May.

Good luck for today Imp! Can't wait to see a pic :)
Fig - I'm off for my 16 week midwife apt this morning too! Do you have the day off? Lovely, I'm jealous!
Ixia - Another with a day off? Gosh you're all making me jealous! Enjoy your morning with the niece. How old is she?
AFM - Not much to report. 16 week appointment today - secretly hoping they will use the doppler.... I'm going through the panic / is everything OK stage because I'm feeling soooo much better. Said to H last night that I might book a private scan to ease my worrying. Not sure though - I just think how am I ever going to cope from 20-40 weeks. I don't want to spend my whole pregnancy paying for private scans.ETA: WOW. An Avocado!!

Morning ladies, will pop back later to do personals but just wanted to thank you all for the good luck and vibes.
Just waiting now...

Ooh, excitedly awaiting your update, imp!
Good luck at your appointments, fig and pep. I hope you hear lovely heartbeats!
Ixia, who did you go with for classes? Nct? Is it a short class or the 6 week one?
AFM, we are still unconfirmed on exchange and completion, but it's looking up at least, so I'm doing a bit of packing today. Last night in the middle of the night I was lying awake and I think I felt my first kicks. Not flutters, though, but proper kicks. There have been a handful of maybe moments over the past 10 days or so, but they weren't flutters either, really, but I wasn't paying enough attention and when I would all I could feel was my heartbeat. Last night it was proper feel it from the outside stuff, but I'm now worried I was actually asleep and dreaming it! Argh.

Back from my apt! Got to listen to the heartbeat. Best sound ever :) I'm on cloud 9 right now.
28/01/2014 at 11:14
Fig I hope your appt went well and your mw listened to the hb.
Ixia how exciting that you've started to make plans. Enjoy having your niece.
Pep I am so happy you heard the hb, I know you really wanted some reassurance. You and your avocado!
Wispa Glad things are moving along a bit, house buying and selling is so stressful.
MDD- Helllooooooo! :)
Well, a positive update from me.
Happy feet was doing a headstand and hiccuping away. It was so cute to see the hiccups. She measured quite a lot of stuff and all seemes within the normal range, she didn't do everything that they do at 20wks but not far off. I feel a lot more relaxed now. I wont attach the photo as it's rubbish and you can't really make it out.
Good luck Imp!
Ixia - embrace the laziness, especially if ironing is the alternative!
Fig - I also need new pillows and keep forgetting until it comes to bed time! Hope you have a lovely night's sleep :) Good luck at you MW appointment today
Wispa - The kicks are great aren't they? I had my first onesthis week too. I'm sure you weren't dreaming!
Pepperoni - The heartbeat is pretty awesome isn't it? Has it made it feel more real?
AFM - Had my first proepr kicks this week, even H felt a couple! Hoping to start painting the nursery this week but still need to relocate a load of stuff that's in there!

Ah Imp!! So glad to read your update!! Glad you're feeling more relaxed xx
28/01/2014 at 11:19
How lovely you and H got to feel kicks this week. I can't wait for that bit.
28/01/2014 at 11:22
Hurry up and update us Imp :) xx
Pep I work from home...every day is a day off lol. So glad that your mw appointment went well and that you got to hear the heartbeat! Its an amazing sound.
Hi Miss Deedee :)
Wispa how exciting that you felt a kick!! Good luck with packing, I hope you hear some news about exchanging today.
All was fine at my mw appointment. She picked up something in my urine sample so has sent that off for proper analysis. She said it was either a sign that I'd been flighting off a cold or that I have an infection. So I just have to wait to hear the results of that. She used the doppler on me and gave a big speech about how I wasn't to worry if she couldn't find it, then found it straight away. She made me record it on my phone for H to listen to when he gets home...I didn't have the heart to tell her that we have a doppler at home and I've been using it for the last month now lol. I really liked today's midwife, shame it's just the luck of the draw at my GPs as to who you see each time you visit.

It's taken me that long to write my post that I missed your update Imp! Such wonderful news, I'm so happy for you xxx I'm so glad that you're feeling more relaxed now.
VT, so exciting that you have proper kicks now!!Lovely that your H can feel them too.

Great news Imp!
Doppler owners - Fig / Imp - Was it this one you both said you had? - www.amazon.co.uk/.../ref=sr_1_11
I think I'm going to spend the money on a doppler instead of a private scan that will only reassure me for a week.
28/01/2014 at 12:16
That's the one we both have, yes. And CA too. It's fab Pep, I can't tell you how reassuring it's been. I love mine :)
28/01/2014 at 12:18
Yep, like Fig said it's awesome. It is great value if you compare it to a scan, plus you could always sell it on if you wanted to.
28/01/2014 at 12:19
Thanks guys, I'm def going to get it! Been having nightmares and all sorts from worrying so its worth the investment I think! :)
28/01/2014 at 12:21
It's addictive, I try and make myself leave it for 24 hours, but I can't!
28/01/2014 at 12:26
Haha! I can imagine it is very addictive!

It's easier to find the hb lying down. Anything above 120 is baby, anything below is your own heartbeat :)
