Morning! Sorry to hear you're having a rough time of it FM, I hope you don't have much longer left of it! Sounds like you have an exciting weekend to look forward to.
No change for me, still don't really feel pregnant or much different! I did do another CB test last night and it was nice to see it go from 2-3 weeks to 3+. And I've got my early scan booked for 23rd Aug so counting down to then now!

FM - I hope you get a break from it soon.
Woowoo - I have only just started to feel pregnant and it's more that I feel sick!
AFM - well MS has started no actual sickness but a constant churning in my stomach. It was only in the afternoons but today it has started already. Oh and I still have the bloating fun fun!

FM - sorry you've been having a tough time, although yay for exciting days to come!
WW - you're only a few days behind me, it's all very exciting isn't it?! Do you have a midwife appointment booked in before your scan?
Rosco - fun times hey? Not sure what I'd prefer the nausea cos your not actually being sick or the amazing feeling after you have been sick lol!
AFM - luckily most p the big jobs are done in the house for now as in stripping walls, moving furniture and ripping up carpets, which is good timing! I've been getting really light headed and starting to feel sick when I'm hungry and some cupasoups and caramel biscuits are my friends at the mo to get me through the day! Just counting down days til my early scan next Friday when I'll be 7 weeks!

Tonka - no my MW appointment isn't until the 27th Aug, apparently at my surgery they won't see you until your 7 weeks, and this was the nearest appointment to that they had as she's only there 2 days a week. Which doesn't fill me with confidence going forwards to be honest!
Next Friday will be here before you know it, I bet you can't wait!

The midwives are only in our surgery one day a week on Thursdays so I'm booked in at 7+6 to register. I do have numbers for 6 community midwives so luckily someone will always be available if you need them and apparently will also come out to you on other days. Since we are living with H's parents at the mo and they don't know, I figured I was getting my appointment booked in early with plenty of notice!

I think it's very common for MWs to only be there a couple of days a week in smaller surgeries as I can't imagine there is demand 5 days a week. I have no idea when mine are at the surgery as my booking in appointment (next Weds) is at my house!
I also have a number to call if I have any issues.
Tonka - I don't know what is better either. If I was sick and felt better maybe it would be worth it but I hate being sick so just in case you still feel queasy afterwards I'll stick to feeling rough. I keep trying to remind myself it's a good thing!

At least I know the MW service is pretty standard then, although I haven't been given any contact numbers should I have any problems, I've only spoken to the receptionist at the surgery!
Rosco - I'm with you, I absolutely hate being sick and luckily I very rarely am, so I would also take the queasiness, hope it doesn't last too long for you, but yeah at least it'll all be worth it in the end!

I've started to get a little bit of pain tonight and not sure if its something to worry about? It's kind of on the right of my abdomen and also the bottom, it's in no way severe but it's constantly there and kind of feels like its pulling. Anyone experienced anything similar?

It can be your uterus stretching. I had period type pains for a few days. The EPU said not to worry about pain unless it was severe and/or accompanied by bleeding. Maybe it's a great time for a long bath and a relaxing night. Hope you feel better soon.

Well I was toying with watching the first OBEM since finding out but I think a nice long bath may be better for me!
