I'm still in bed! I love my husband lol today is the second induction for big school for my boy and then I'm looking after my friends LO whilst she goes to her mw booking in, she had a positive early scan yesterday so I'm delighted for her. Also dreading Friday more as I can't quite believe it can go well for both of us.

Isis - I'm so jealous of your lie in! Good news about your friend as well. I'm sure Friday will be fine and then you can relax a bit.
No more spotting yet today thank god but I do have stretching pains so I'm wondering whether that explains yesterdays spotting. I googled stretching pains and it came up on my phone that I had already searched for it in my last pregnancy at 8 weeks so clearly I was the same last time!
Still the Dr is ringing me later so may get an early scan. Also need to get the Dr to refer me to the consultant so hopefully we will get a heart scan sorted asap. I may start to relax a bit after that!

It's such a worrying time isn't it? Hope you get some reassurance.
Lie in was much needed!

Isis- glad you had a lovely lie in. Hope your LO has a good time today at school. That's good news for your friend, and it'll be good news for you on Friday I'm sure.
MrsV - I'm sorry, I didn't realise you were spotting. I hope your DR rings with news of a scan for you. Fingers crossed for you.
AFM, I seem to be a bit slap dash in posting here (sorry!). I'm currently on twice daily cat naps, so work days are a killer. I was in bed last night at 8.30 and I sleuth though til 6.30 this morning. My sickness seems to have subsided greatly, I just seem to get a rush if I smell something minging but its gone within a few minutes. My biggest symptom is the nasty taste in my mouth. I think I'm permanently cleaning my teeth and sucking on mints!
I had my MW appt yesterday, so it all finally feels real. I won't be getting an early scan though, as this was a natural conception (my son was clomid). I'm a bit gutted, but I've had my 12 week scan date, so it's a little better I suppose.
My H is absolutely bricking it. My EDD is confirmed as 7th March. My birthday is at the end of March and my son was born on my birthday too. So, with three birthdays, Mother's Day and some years Easter, he said it'll be more expensive in march than at Christmas!

MrsDee, we got married in March because its a time of year when nothing happens in our family, I'm due 1st March lol it's Jude's birthday August, mine September, H's October and then obv Christmas so an expensive few months! Glad the sickness has eased for you, I'm feeling better on that front today too.

Hello ladies, I'm jumping in to join you. Had scan this morn and 12+4 with baby no3 x
16/07/2013 at 11:27
Mrs Dee - I'm sure its nothing but it does make you worry. Rubbish that you won't get an early scan. I have the same horrible taste in my mouth, doesn't seem to go away for long after brushing my teeth :(
CK - You kept that quiet :) Glad the scan went well!
16/07/2013 at 11:33
Congratulations CK! Can't believe you've managed to fit another baby in when we'll have similar aged no1 and babies!

Thanks girls. I didnt have a good feeling so wanted to wait until scan. Have also had a loss inbetween 1&2 so didnt want to get hopes up.
Isis I know, but you've got your lovely wee family now
J is going to be a fab big bro!
16/07/2013 at 12:23

16/07/2013 at 14:02
Hi All, just wanted to jump on the band wagon also, i am 8+5 today and got another scan on sunday! feeling nervous! hope you are all ok!
16/07/2013 at 14:43
Just seen CKs news. Can't believe you kept it quiet when we were talking on fb!
You are 2 weeks ahead of me I think.
I was supposed to have my nuchal scan on Tuesday but I've put it off till 1st August. So another 2 weeks to wait. Feels like ages away now!
16/07/2013 at 15:16

16/07/2013 at 16:48

Is anyone else struggling with anxiety? I want to believe all is well but I daren't
16/07/2013 at 21:40
Isis yes, I was in denial and partly because I was worried about getting 'attached' to baby incase all went wrong. Its horrible to feel like that :-( xx

hello all. I got my BFP on Sunday and I'm so nervous about this pregnancy that I haven't posted in here yet and am at the toilet every half hour checking my knickers. I feel a bit like you did CK, worried about letting myself believe its happening. I'm almost expecting something to go wrong and am willing the next 8 weeks away, then will be over that first hurdle. I have an early scan a month today but that seems a lifetime away just now!
Sorry for crappy first post but was lurking and could relate!

Hi all and congrats and welcome weekender. I'm really struggling with anxiety too. I have no reason to think anything is wrong but I think I am in denial too. I'll feel better once I see a scan. The trouble with me is that I don't have any symptoms, which I know can happen, but I just don't feel pregnant! I suppose it's only natural to worry but I'll be glad when 12 weeks arrives :)
