Thought I'd start todays thread as Im unsure what time I'll get on later. Busy day for me, scan at 3.05 and we get the keys for our house today..eeeks!
Been a bit sicky this morning, I think it's down to nerves. Really nervous about the scan but at least work will keep me busy up until our appointment.
Hope you all have a good day! Will try and get back on at some point tonight or will get my PP Tweetie Pie to update you all.

Massive vibes for today's scan Gemini, I'm sure it'll be fine. Can't wait to see the picture if your little bubba. How exciting that you also get the keys to your new place, are you moving today too?
AFM- I'm trying to decide whether to tell my boss. I told him last time when we got the bad news, as I needed time off work. So in some ways I just think I'm not gaining anything by not telling him, whereas if he knows then I can have time off for scans etc in work time. I think I'm going to tell him, what do you think?
I'm feeling pretty much the same otherwise, bit sickly most of the day but I'm not actually being sick. Managing to eat still, I can't remember the last time I was off my food, it has to be really bad for me to stop eating!

Gem - Big vibes for positive result from your scan
Imp - I would probably tell your boss. I told mine when I was approx 8weeks with my 1st purely so I could time of for the scan :-)
AFM - 9 weeks today. Hurrah. Queasiness seems to have eased but has been replaced with exhaustion and lightheadedness - I'm finding the latter a bit unnerving :-( Have also done something a bit silly (pprobably) I've entered my horsey and I onto a 10mile endurance ride when I will be just shy of 12weeks. Eeek. Well, I haven't been able to do much with him as was off work injuryed from Aug-Dec and Feb-march, so feel I deserve one trip out after all the bl88dy mucking out I had to do and the big vet bill he landed me with! Off to get new shoes put on him this morning. More money, great!

Wow horse fan! I don't know where you get the energy from. I'm exhausted all the time, so anything additional is just taking a back seat at the moment. I've had a bit if lightheaded ness too, it's a bit disconcerting isn't it? I'm ok as long as I can sit down for a few minutes.
How's the decorating going?
22/05/2013 at 07:52
I bought paint! I finally decided on .... ....... A deep red! Plan to get it on the walls this bank holiday weekend :-)
22/05/2013 at 07:54
Nice choice, sounds lovely. Nice weekend of decorating ahead then!

Gemini good luck today, I'll check later for your update.
Imp If you told him last time I would probably tell him again. I've only told my bosses pa as she's in charge of holidays etc and I told her last time so I could get time off and I told her this time so I could go for my scan, as you say I don't want to waste holidays!
HF your busy!! If your feeling ok then the race should be fine? I remember his injuries last year so be nice to get back out I'm sure. Glad you've decided on paint, sounds nice.
Well I've missed the train for the 3rd time this week so just waiting at the station. I just can't get going in the morning and permanently ready to go back to sleep!! I'm also feeling a bit sicky but no actual sickness, I start to wonder if its in my head and I just think I feel sick lol!!
Imp I was thinking last night, will you be 11wks something at your scan? I guess that was nice of your midwife to make it quicker rather than past the 12weeks, I'm hoping mine isn't late 12wks, I'd prefer if it was nearer the earlier date for doing all the tests etc!
So wish I wasn't at work, although we have sun again!x
22/05/2013 at 08:26
Hi missdeedee, yes I'll be just over 11 weeks. I think it was just coincidence that its early, rather than them intentionally giving me an early one. Either way I'm happy about it.
I'm the same with the sickness, I keep wondering if I'm creating it in my head. Or am I actually feeling sick?! Glad I'm not alone in that anyway! :)
22/05/2013 at 09:07
Gemeni best of luck, exciting about your house as well. Can't wait to see the update later.
I am feeling really nervous now I am if my drugs as that was supporting the baby, now my body has to take over and do it. I just hope my body doesn't fail me.
22/05/2013 at 09:15
Imp I'm sure it's real, we just need to stop over thinking things!
VV your body grew your little bubs so it will be fine without the drugs. Your body will have taken over now anyway and already be doing it on its own xx
My H just called to say he got the mail before he left and my letters there from the hospital with my scan date for the 4th July, I'll be 13weeks or possibly just over 13 wks! I'm going to phone and see if I can move it back a week. I can't win, last time they sent me my letter for my scan and I would only have been 10+6, I phoned to make it later and the woman said that would probably have been fine but she would move it on a couple of days for me! I thought they would aim for 12wks!!
22/05/2013 at 09:39
Gemini - what an exciting day! I hope that everything goes smoothly with picking up your keys, and good luck for your scan. x
Imp - do you think your boss needs to know? I've just said that I've got 'hospital appointments' so far, and my boss has been good enough not to ask what they are for. It depends on whether you think they'll make a fuss if you take time off? Sorry you're off your food, hope the MS doesn't get any worse.
HF - where do you find the energy?? If the lightheadedness continues I would just check that with your midewfe or doctor because it might be to do with your blood pressure. But you might just be running around too much - remember to take it easy! I like deep red as a colour for your walls, good choice.
missdeedee- sounds like you need an early night so you can get out of bed in the morning ;-). My scan will be just over 13 weeks too - it can be done up until 14 weeks so we should be fine.
Vivixon - please don't worry about your body taking over - it'll know what to do.
AFM - 8+1 and not feeling pregnant. All I'm getting is a funny feeling like I've pulled a muscle in my abdomen if I move too quickly, and occassionally tender breats. I'm not too bloated, I don't need to pee all the time any more, and I'm not nauseous. I do think my sense of smell is slightly increased today though (I was brushing my teeth and the smell of the rubber on my electric toothbrush put me right off) and I'm hungry all the time. But that might just be conincidence. I spoke to my H about the possibilty of doing a private scan at 9/10 weeks - we'll see how I feel in a week's time. My NHS scan isn't until 13 weeks so I don't want to wait anther 5 weeks to find out if something's wrong :-(

Lots of vibes for this afternoon Gemini and How exciting about getting your keys!!
Imp- if he is understanding it might be a good idea to tell him, especially with all the appointments that will be comming up! Im finding it realyl hard to keep it quiet at work!
HorseFan I agree with Imp, I m not surprised you are so exhausted!
missdeedee im the opposite, im waking up so early in the morning (probably because im going to bed so early!) and cant drift back off!
VV Im sure your body wont fail you! It's tougher than you think!
Penny I don't feel pregnant at all! It's a little unnerving!!
Was it mermaid who was asking about back ache and pains? I was reading last night about weel 10 and how that is when you get anotehr burst of ligaments and muscles moving and stretching which causes back ache!
AFM- not much to report today. i went and picked up my maternity notes this morning. Asked baout my Bounty pack but they had no idea and said to ask at my next midwife appoinment! I had a flick through my notes and freaked out by the last page DO NOT look at the last page!!! it is all about tears during labour!!!
10 weeks today!
22/05/2013 at 09:58
Gemini, huge vibes for your scan. Looking forward to the update! :o)
lmp, if it means getting time off for your scan then I would just tell. I had to tell my boss, firstly as she is my mum but also because of the work I do. Hope the sickness eases.
HF, yay for 9 weeks! Go you for being able to ride like that, my exhaustion means hoovering makes me so tired :/ Fab!
MissDD, just over 12 weeks is a bit late :/ I know the guideline is up to 14 but most people seem to get an 11 or 12 weeks. Mine was at 12+5 and even that felt like ages! Hope they can move it for you x
V, I have complete faith in you and your body. Positive and healthy vibes coming to you xx
Penny, you poor thing, I know how worrying it can be not to 'feel' pregnant. But with no bleeding or cramping I would stay positive, lots of vibes to you x My sense of smell was so heightened and I get that pulling feeling if I move too quick. Makes me stop for a bit. Try not to worry too much, I know it is hard xx
AFM, 12+6 so last day on here before I head over to 2nd trimester. Looking forward to you all being there soon! Still taking my sickness tablets but the nausea is creeping through again now, I think I need to wake up at about 6am to take it so that I can do breakfast and the school run without feeling sick. Still can't face much food even though I am starving! Not much else to report!
22/05/2013 at 10:00
MrsB, tears don't worry me as such, but being cut does, even though I know it would be less painful. I am odd, I know! Yay for ten weeks! :o)
22/05/2013 at 11:07
Chimp all I have to say to that is "OUCH" I dont want to think about tears or cuts just yet!!!
Yay for 2nd tri!!
22/05/2013 at 11:14
Hey Penny, I hope your ok, I'm constantly on symptom watch so can totally understand. As you say, you can see how you go and if you srart feeling more pregnant you can decide whether to leave an early scan or not.
Mrs Bass, I'll make sure I avoid the back page then! Can't believe your 10 weeks already!
Chimp, sad to see you move over to 2nd tri, hopefully we'll all see you in a few weeks!
I phoned up about my scan and they were great, I just asked if I could make it a bit earlier and she said I had to be between 11 and 14 weeks and I said I would be 13 weeks on the date they had given me and the lady was confused and said she thought I had been given a date for me being 12 weeks, so she's happily moved in to the wed the week before, so I'm now on Wed the 26th, 5 weeks today, when I will be 11+6 so I'm happy with that. Still going to go for our early scan 2 weeks on sat at 9+2 as I'm not sure I can wait the 5 weeks!x
22/05/2013 at 11:47
I know, We have only known for 5 weeks but it seems like so much longer!!
that is great news about your scan, glad a helpful person awnsered your call!
22/05/2013 at 12:08
Mrs Bass - when I first read what you wrote about tears during labour I thought of rather than -er - rips . I think if the second one happens I'll be doing lost of the first one! Owwwwww!
Chimp - I'm glad you get the pulling feeling too, I've googled it loads and can never find anyone else experiencing the same thing so I feel less weird now. I hope the nausea eases soon and we'll miss you when you go over to 2nd Tri.
missdeedee - I'm glad you've got your NHS scan nice and early, that's great news. I know what you mean about not wanting to wait - how long now until the early one?
22/05/2013 at 12:43
I'm in denial about any possible tears etc! Lalala, not thinking about it!
It's 2 weeks on sat, 17 days! Not that I'm counting! I can't believe I'm only 7 weeks tomorrow, I feel like I've known forever! Are you still going by your dates (sorry if I'm getting mixed up, but am I remembering right that they changed your dates at your scan?) Do you have somewhere local you can get an early scan if you decide? x
22/05/2013 at 13:48
Yep I'm still going by my dates cos I know I'm right ;-). There's a place near where I work where I can get it done next week if I want to. Just need to decide whether I do or not.
I know what you mean, I suddenly realised this morning that I've known for 4 weeks, but it actually feels like forever!
