TRF - naughty H for waking you up early, I hope you can have a rest later today.
Rio - I hope you get lots of work done this morning.
GB - that's annoying, I hope you can get some sort of rest later. It's understandable to feel anxious about the move and pregnancy, big hugs xx
MrsL - good luck for your scan today!
AFM - I didn't sleep well, even though I'm in my own bed. L and O ended up in it at various points in the night, plus I couldn't get to sleep easily. I've got to try and get some marking done today as I'm back at work tomorrow, plus I'm going to tell my head of department about my pregnancy as I'm going to cause timetabling issues next year. I'm still feeling sick and achy so I guess that's all positive.
I hope everyone has a good day.

Thanks all, had a pretty restless night but feeling ok. Appointments at 9am so at least we don't need to wait long now. I'll try an d pop back on tonight with an update and personals xx

***quietly sneaks in***
Hi all. I'm still getting used to this but got my BFP last thurs so hoping I can join you?
As I was temping I know I'm only 15dpo, but based on LMP I'm 4+6. I wasn't expecting any symptoms so soon but have feeling pretty queasy over the weekend- nothing too bad yet but I would have definitely known something was up if I hadnt tested early. Its our first and we were lucky enough to have a BFP on our 3rd month of trying.
We live 300 miles away from our family and my parents were here at the weekend so I didn't want to miss the opportunity to tell them face to face- ideally I would have waited at least a couple of weeks but it was so nice to be able to tell them. After that we then rang H's parents and our sisters so now everyone we would tell before the 12 week scan knows. It feels more real now they know!
I've got a couple of days off, parents leaving this morning so can be a lady of leisure today!
TRF- you have a well trained H to have the place gleaming!
Rio hope the starts aren't too bad
Glitterball- hope you find something to distract you today
DS- hope you get through without much sleep and your boss reacts well
Good luck Mrs L!

Mrs L - I hope it's gone well x
Rioja Lu - congratulations and welcome to 1st tri! I bet it was lovely telling people. Enjoy being a lady of leisure today!

RF - definitely starfish in bed, it's what I'm doing right now
Rio - I don't envy your early start, hope it's flying in!
GB - no time at all now until you move, very exciting!
DS - hope you perk up as the day goes on, lock your bedroom door tonight
MrsL - loads of good scan vibes, can't wait for an update!
Rioja - lovely to have you here. Can't believe you've told everyone already, I must confess that I'm a little jealous. There's some days that it's lovely having thi secret just the two of us, but other days I just wish I could tell everyone. Oh well, only 7 weeks to go!
AFM - 5 weeks today and debating whether to do my last CBD for a 3+. My symptoms have reduced since yesterday which has me panicking, but Googling suggests that it's quite common and doesn't mean anything. Have another 1000 words to write for my essay today, then it will take hours to link in references, but I should complete it today. Can't believe we move in six days, very surreal. Shpuld be back to Uni today but am off sick, contemplating eater egg for brekkie.

Caved and tested, got my 3+. Have now packed my tests away as it doesn't get much better than this, time to start believing that this might really be happening for us!
22/04/2014 at 11:39
eeep!! so exciting Saff! I'm buying a new pack so I can test again on thurs as only have a 1-2 week so far so want the reassurance of 2-3 and 3+.
I hope we don't regret telling them, our hand was slightly forced as I don't think we could have kept it secret with mum and dad staying for 4 days. Just keeping it to immediate family though!!
22/04/2014 at 11:49
No, not at all love, I'm sure they won't mention to anyone. It's just the way I am tbh, I've always been very private when it comes to telling my family stuff, probably too private if I'm honest. It's nice that you've told them, I've just always known that I would be a 12 week person.
I know, the CBDs are addictive. I got a 2-3 last Monday which have me worries that there were two in there, but then only 2-3 again on Friday. Now that I have my 3+ I won't test anymore. We are going to arrange an early scan at some point though, just for reassurance...and because I'm impatient
22/04/2014 at 11:59
rio - hope you manage to get some headway with the work
GB - yes i need food as soon as im awake too might have to start taking biccies to bed
DS - we could chat over night, i tend to have one or two children attempting to get in at some point...although the past few nights littley has stayed put in his bed! he does like to get up for a wander usually
Rioja - congrats and welcome
mrs L - hope all went well
saf - yay for 3+, arent you feeling well today?
afm, have noticed that im fine if im eating this doesnt bode well i dont think! i lost almost 4 stone last year, and im making a huge effort to put it all back on in first tri iv already eaten my lunch. working till 10, bleeding just steady atm, really wish it would go as i keep panicking and analysing flow/colour etc (bleugh)
anyway best get some work done
22/04/2014 at 12:34
RF - I'm not too bad, but it's double RME today and I have an essay to finish! I'm having trouble sleeping at the minute so constantly exhausted, and feel yukky when I wake up but it seems to pass once I actually get up and eat something. I'm back out to school tomorrow with a new class so thought it best to save my energy for that. Sorry to hear that you're still spotting, it must be a very anxious time for you

Hi girls sorry for the huge upside down pic I can't figure out how to turn it. Scan went well, baby looked ok and nuchal measured 1.1mm which I think is good? Have to wait up to 10 days for results. Baby was waving and moving around. Scan finished very quickly tho as hubby got all sweaty and dizzy and ended up on the scan bed instead if me, think it was the relief of everything. So that's s interesting!!!!! Told lots of people today, feel such a relief now.
22/04/2014 at 14:43
MrsL-amazing! Making me want to fast forward! Bless your H.
Welcome RL and congrats!
TRF-hope you're ok.
Saff-woo to 3+. Cant work out if im a day or 2 ahead or behind as my dates are funny due to 31 day cycle but my symptoms also reduced. You're making me want to do another CBD too!
22/04/2014 at 16:04
Amazing news MrsL, lovely pic!
Sorry Rio, they are very addictive! At the minute you just go by your LMP, so how many days has it been? They will re-date you if necessary once you've had a scan

TRF: Glad to hear the bleeding slowing down, hope it stops soon. Enjoy your 3 days hubby free!!
Rio: Hope you did ok with the early morning start & got lots done
GB: Definitely agree with food by the bedside, although strangely I haven't needed it this time. Try not worry about your move. Is it soon?
DS: I hope you got some marking done, I just keep putting mine off & really haven't felt up to it but has to be done. Hope telling your work went well
Rioja Lu It's great to tell people face to face isn't it
Saff: Hope you managed to get your essay done & enjoyed your easter egg. It's so hard to stop testing isn't it! I packed mine away & as a lot of them were given to me by other MDers I've now sent them & my OPK's onto new homes so I'm not tempted to do any more!!
MrsL: What a fab pic, so glad it went well but funny now that pic will also remind you of your H nearly passing out!!
AFM: I think I've only got tomorrow in the 1st tri before I head to 2nd tri on Thurs which feels quite surreal. Went back to work today after the holidays (& after scan) so now I can tell people & it's a bit weird as I've known for such a long time but a big relief. Had a lovely Easter weekend with family, getting to hold my 4 week old niece & my friend's 5 day old baby boy was great. Also my sister took me on my word as I'd asked for Easter eggs for my birthday on easter sunday & bought me 5 - gonna keep me going for a long time. Had a tiny bit of spotting a few days ago but think I over did a bit. Was thinking I was starting to feel better but was then sick this morning (only for the 3rd time so far) after brushing my teeth. Think I put too much toothpaste on as I was half asleep.
Don't know if anyone will actually read this but hi to any who do x
22/04/2014 at 22:10
BK - good evening! I'm getting there with the essay, although still about 500 words to go, and a few appendices. The egg was nice but I think I had too much as felt a bit ill afterwards. I really think I will stop testing now, there's nothing more they can tell me so it's now just a countdown until scan day. Must be so exciting to be able to tell everyone Sorry to see you leave, but I'm sure we will be joining you over in 2nd tri in no time!
