Im tired and grumpy today, both children up half the night coughing and I started work at 7. Getting a few cramps this morning but think its the iron in Pregnacare! It seems to be effecting me already, which I remember from the last time.
I managed to come to work with toothpaste on my ear! Much to the ammusesment of the early morning gym bunnies! At least someone pointed it out to me first thing.
I have booking in tomorrow so must remember my urine sample, I'm terrible for forgetting it. Not looking forward to the bloods.
about to do my work out, and get A shower before my first client.
Have agreat day x

Morning LR! Poor you having a rough night and an early start for work. Any idea how you got toothpaste on your ear?! Lol!! Why is the iron making you unwell? It might be worth mentioning that at your booking in as that doesn't sound good and there might be other vits you can take instead?
I'm 5 weeks today! Not sure why this is such an achievement but I'm delighted!! Every day feels like a mini success at the moment. Still no other symptoms although my H has developed chronic fatigue and an insatiable appetite this week....ha ha!!

Morning LR, hope your day gets better! Good luck for your booking in appointment and I know how you feel about the bloods, my bruise is still visible from the MW missing a vein and my appointment was 7th June.
Afm, panicking a bit today. My boobs don't feel sore anymore and I'm sure my stomach is much flatter. I can't wait to get home really, I'm covered in mossie bites, struggling to eat as its so god damn hot here. I think we'll have a private scan when we get home to reassure ourselves. Sorry for whining, I think I'm just a grumpy cow today.
Hello to all who follow x

Morning ladies, Sweatpea - I have severe endometriosis. My uterus, bladder, bowel etc are all stuck together with scar tissue from it. I find when I take iron it makes stools harder (common for lots of people) so then when I need to "go" I get a lot of stomach pain/cramp due to everything pressing together. It's horrid but Ive suffered it for 20 yrs now. Iron just makes it worse. I get anaemic due to the heavy blood loss from the endo so need the iron, it's a vicious circle!
Congrats on the 5 weeks!
Mrs P, try not to worry, you are probably loosing some of the bloating. Remember your baby is still tiny x

LR - Hope your day improves! i have toothpaste on my face in work the other day, oops!
SP - congrats on 5 weeks. I know exactly what you mean, I can't wait to get to 6 weeks on Friday.
Mrs P - I know its difficult not to worry but I wasn't showing much last time even at 20 weeks! Everyone is different and like LR said the baby is still small.
AFM - Starting to feel a bit more queasy now. Woke up early this morning starving hungry which is what I was like last time. Still not told anyone apart from my parents and colleague at work (which is a miracle I think!!).

I'm waking up starting as well Mrs V. I can't get enough carbs just now. I've had 2 Nutrigrain bars this morning already which is t great at all!

LR that sounds just awful! I'm really to hear that. I hope all goes well with the appointment.
Mrs P - while I've only been pregnant for 5 minutes the first thing I've learnt is that everything is a worry!! So long as there's no severe cramping/bleeding then its likely to be absolutely fine. Where are you? If you are on hols I hope you can enjoy the time you have left
MrsV - you sound just like me....not great at keeping such a big secret!! I've told 2 colleagues (one who is 6.5wks) but no family yet. What a difficult combo of feeling queasy yet hungry! Hope you managed to eat something and keep it down!

I'll do personals later when I'm on the iPad :)
I've had prawn crackers for breakfast lol struggling with tiredness and nausea. Going to try and do bootcamp tomorrow night, couldn't face it last night.
H commented last night about my 'bump' its mostly bloating but I can't hold it in, feel huge!

Hope you are all well and don't mind me joining in. I'm 8 weeks tomorrow and have also got my booking in appt in the morning. Not looking forward to the bloods either but in a way hopefully it will help me to actually feel pregnant. Except extreme fatigue, I've had no symptoms whatsoever!

LR - I know. I'm constantly hungry (which may explain the bump!).
SP - I know its so hard when you know you shouldn't really tell anyone yet. I'm itching to tell one of my work friends as she lost a baby around the same time as me and now she's pregnant again with twins! I know she's going to be really happy for me.
Isis - Prawn crackers for breakfast, you must be pregnant :)
Little Dude - Welcome! Hope your booking in goes well tomorrow.
