hope you're all ok, sorry I didn't get on yesterday work was a bit crazy.
6 days till scan day now, honestly I'm sure a mixture of emotions at the moment full of excitement, fear and keep blubbing at the thought of it. Hormones eh!

I didn't get a chance to reply to any posts yesterday but just wanted to say Congratulations saffron! Welcome to 1st tri :)
Mrs L - I was feeling exactly the same before my early scan. I worked myself up so much and couldn't think of anything else and convinced myself something was wrong. the 12 week scan I was really busy with work which was a good distraction. I didn't have time to think about it until the day! Keep busy and you'll get to see your baby before you know it :)
GB - fingers crossed you exchange today!
RF - Don't worry about the folic acid, you'll be ok until Friday. Enjoy the lakes!
AFM - Not much to report, Looking forward to our weekend away :) I'll be moving to 2nd tri this week! I didn't think I would ever get there, always seemed so far away!
Hi to all that follow xxx

Can i join in? On my phone on a train so not able to do personals but good luck with the exchange and distracting yourself before scan a good idea but the mix of emotions sounds entirely understandable. Just to introduce myself Im 28 and me and H have been married about 9 months. I was a regular on Hitched (LilMissBusyBride). Got my BFP yesterday after a few days of maybe results. Period due tom so still crossing my fingers it doesn't show and v early days. Saffron i have v similar symptoms to those you described yest (sore boobs, cramps, bubbles in my tummy, & back ache). Trying to keep level headed but cant help being unbelievably excited!

Mrs l a mixture of emotions is understandable, but I'm sure everything will be OK. Definitely try and keep yourself busy!
GB I would unleash the hormones on the solicitors! Might make them work a bit quicker!
Rf I hope that the bleeding stops soon. I'm sure you will be fine without the folic acid. Make sure you relax and enjoy yourself too!
Boo where are you off to?
Rio welcome to first tri! Everyone I think swings from being really excited to trying to stay calm or worrying.
Welcome saffron! Didn't get back on yesterday but I see you have joined us.
AFM meeting last night went well and we will go again (its monthly) but was very emotionally draining. I got a bit upset as you are talking about things that are bothering you but you don't discuss in day to day life. There were quite a few there, 4 other couples and 2 women whose partners were at home with their other children. Going to chase up the hospital today for the rest of our results as its 2 weeks today and I don't really want to tell anyone else until we've had them back. Also I'm 14 weeks today! But not going to 2nd tri until I've hot those results.

Hey everyone, nice to see the thread busier today.
MrsL - I'm sure we will all be the same at that stage, a mixture of emotions must be perfectly natural.
GB - hope you are able to exchange today.
RF - that must be very worrying for you, but I'm sure it'll be ok, x
Boo - thank you! Are you looking forward to moving over to 2nd tri?
Rio - lovely to see you here, I had no idea you were LMBB!
Bunny - thank you! And good luck for your results, x
AFM - it's all go over here, with my final uni essay due in 8 days (better get started, eh?), moving house in 12 days, and back out on placement very soon too...plus our news of course! I had my last yoga class for a while this morning. After NHS, GP, and yoga instructor saying it was fine on Monday, I've now been asked to stay away until 2nd tri. It's so frustrating because most of our class is spent on your back which is totally fine in first tri but not allowed in 2nd and 3rd. I already pay a monthly DD for my gym membership (yoga included) and can't really afford £10 a class for specialist pregnancy yoga...feeling quite gutted about it. From what I can gather everyone is just so over cautious in 1st tri, and don't want to be blamed if anything goes wrong. I wouldn't mind if there was evidence for or against it, but NHS website specifically recommends yoga in 1st tri - almost wishing I never told her now. *rant over*
16/04/2014 at 12:53
You have got a lot on saffron! Hope that the essay isn't too much like hard work or boring. That's a shame about the yoga, I think you're right about no one wanting to be blamed for anything.
Rung up the screening midwife who said no results yet and they normally take 14 working days, sometimes up to 21. Argh! This waiting is horrible I just want to know if everything genetic wise is OK or not. Going to have to try and distract myself over the next week.
16/04/2014 at 13:07
It's very boring unfortunately
That's rubbish that it takes so long Bunny, hopefully it won't be too much longer and you are able to keep busy until then.
16/04/2014 at 14:54
Rio - congratulations and welcome to first tri xx
bunny - we're a day apart! I didn't realise we were so close. I hope the hospital don't keep you waiting for too much longer for the results. Oh and im going back up north, I lived there for 7 years and moved to the south to be nearer family last year. It'll be great catching up with friends :)
Saffron - you are a busy bee! I know its early days but still take it easy xxx im quite scared to move over to 2nd tri, it means this pregnancy is actually happening!! Eeek.
16/04/2014 at 17:08
MrsL: You're so nearly there with the scan, hope your sleep doesn't go downhill whilst you wait!
GB: Solicitors are such a pain, hope you exchange soon x
RF: Hope you're enjoying your holiday & hope the bleeding has slowed even if it hasn't quite stopped. Take care
Boo: Have you changed your profile pic? Very spring like! Enjoy your weekend away & I'll see you over on 2nd tri very soon!
Rio: Welcome to the 1st tri hope you have a nice smooth pregnancy
Bunny: Really hope you don't have to wait too much longer for results but with 2 bank holidays this weekend it probably won't speed things up.
Saffron: It sounds like you've got a very busy time of it. Make sure you plan rests in as I've been shattered throughout this 1st tri
AFM: Went to see Peppa Pig at the theatre this morning & it was great fun. Went with 1 of my antenatal/postnatal friends & she was 1 of the few people I told that I thought I was pregnant when I saw her during my 2ww so she's mega excited for me. I'm going away tomorrow to see family so I doubt I'll be on here much as I can't be doing with typing on my hubby's smartphone! I was so excited about telling 1 of my sisters (my youngest who's guessed that we're trying) & swapping stories with my SIL & brother as my new niece is now 4 weeks old so I can find out about the reality of 2 with a similar age gap to us (2 months difference) & of course getting to meet my niece for the 1st time. However I decided (on the advice of ladies on here) to text & prewarn my other sister about my pregnancy as she had a mc in Feb. I haven't had a reply since texting her last night & have just had a text from my mum to say that my sister has taken the day off work as she's too upset to work. I feel really awful. I was going to ring her to see how she was doing but I don't think it will be a good idea. Was really looking forward to this weekend as it's also my birthday on Easter Sunday but now I feel quite deflated & don't know what to think. Sorry for the wo is me ending. Will tell the people at my drama group tonight as I know they'll be happy for me & that'll cheer me up. I'll try & read posts but probably won't get back on till next Wed x x
16/04/2014 at 18:57
Oh BK, I'm sorry that it's not gone down well at all. It does sound like she has had a hard time, but it is a shame that she hasn't felt able to congratulate you yet. Hopefully she is able to soon.
QQ - I seem to be feeling quite tired, sicky, and run down at night. When I wake up I don't even feel pregnant but by this time of day I'm floored. Does anyone else have this? It feels very backwards to what I expected...I mean, it's supposed to be morning sickness
16/04/2014 at 19:07
TFR - sorry you are still bleeding. Hope you are not too stressed although know that's a stupid thing to say.
Boo - good luck for second tri! Hopefully see you there soon.
Rio - hello and huge congratulations!
Bunny - I have everything crossed for your test results. Hope you are ok.
Saffron - lovely to see you here. I've deferred my gym membership for three months. I'm going up the wall. I'm worse in the evenings too.
BK - so sorry your news didn't go well. Hopefully she just needs a bit of time. You've done it the right way.
AFM - still not exchanged! Our buyer is playing silly beggars! Went to lunch at a friends and accidentally ate Parma ham. I think it was cooked but didn't know I couldn't eat it so panicking a bit. Wasn't loads tho so hopefully it's ok.
16/04/2014 at 19:19
I'm sure it will be fine GB, many countries don't even advise against eating it. I never thought about deferring, I think I will just plough on with swimming and gumming instead of the classes. Glad to know you are worse at night too, at least I'm not completely odd.

All the females on my side of the family have been sickness free throughout pregnancy, hopefully this is just a small blip. Of course GB, I'm not sure how much I'll actually manage to go once I'm back at Uni next week. I've only been so often now as I've had three weeks off!
