Managed to work from home yesterday for a lot of the day, as was so tired I spilled 2 drinks and couldn't focus on computer screen well. Was actually a bit worried if this was 'beyond tired' and ill, but slept the whole night since becoming pregnant and feel heaps better today. Scan day tom (eek!). Also telling Mums tomorrow if all going well (double eek), and think it'll be quite a surprise to them. Hope all is well. Im another one struggling to hide the bump, especially in work clothes. But think it is mostly bloating as i look different sizes throughout the day.

Eeek nearly there Rio! Glad you're feeling less tired!
AFM really worrying that something's wrong. I'm not sure why but not looking forward to the next 7 weeks!

Rio - not long to go! Glad you got a good sleep, it's amazing how much better you feel after a full nights sleep.
FM - I think it's perfectly natural to feel worried , are you still thinking about an early scan?
AFM - my dad's coming over today so will be telling him. He's the last of my immediate family to know and I feel a bit weird about telling him. I don't know why!
I'm still in bed with the girls watching jungle book, should really get up soon!

FM I convinced myself at 6 weeks that something was wrong and I just 'knew', just like I'd known I was pregnant. I think it is normal, and maybe a little bit protective. Sort of like our mind 's way of not getting too attached as we know it could all go wrong? All seemed fine at my scan though. I feel a but worried about telling everyone tbh DD. Do you just randomly say at the end of a convo "im pregnant", do you simply show the scan pic...We cant decide and I've overthought it during last few weeks and TTC. All feels a bit cringey in a strange way . Excited about them knowing and discussing everything, but the actual moment of saying it feels bit weird, I guess because I 've never done it.

Rio - I know exactly what you mean when you say cringey. With my first there were a few "big announcements". Last time we just sort of blurted it out to close family and then put scan up on FB or sent it as a text to some people, I felt like I didn't want all the attention if that makes sense and I feel the same this time. We're at a friends on Saturday for a bit of celebration for her as she's had a tough few months with illness and is coming out the other side now, H thinks we should tell them then but I feel like I'm stealing her thunder! I want to just text and tell her beforehand and not make a big deal. The other thing is, H and I had said before we were done at 2 and always made a big deal that we were absolutely having no more, so I suppose in a way im a bit embarrassed as well ! Does that even make sense! Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy to be pregnant, I think I just feel a bit more private about it this time.

Rio - nice work on the sleep last night! I know what you mean about the announcements, I remember last time not actually being able to say the words out loud, "I'm pregnant" to my mum because that made it all seem more real.
Furmummy - I think it's natural to worry at this stage, when you're waiting what feels like forever to see baby on the screen.
DD - we felt strange telling my grandad last time, though he gave H an even stronger handshake than he does normally apparently. So he was clearly very happy about the news, so H is looking forward to that again once we've had the scan.
AFM - a pretty chilled out day here planned. Had a much better night sleep last night, despite the 1.30am wake up call from M, which I'd have happily done without. I'm trying to go without the cyclizine today- I'd got down to 1tab a day and hoping to be able to come off them completely. A few hours later than I would have taken it and so far, so good. 10+5
