Morning MS, good luck over on the 2nd tri :-)
Its raining here. Booo. Glad we made the most of the sunshine yesterday though. Plasterer has arrived already, should be his last day today, then its gotta dry and I've got to decorate .... And make a decision on colour!! Queasyiness seems to have gone (temporaly?). MMidwife booking in appointment is Friday afternoon and early scan Monday morning

Good luck over on 2nd tri MS!
HF- it's cloudy and full here today, we've got rain forecast for later. I think the last few days was probably our summer.
I just want to say good luck to Penny, she's got her early scan this morning.
AFM- I'm feeling pretty un-pregnant. I'm really, really, really worrying about it. I should be 6 ish weeks, so I know it could be too early but I'm convinced that I've made it up or something has gone wrong. Got my early scan a week tomorrow, it's in my mind when I go to bed and when I wake up. I know I can't change the outcome by worrying, but I just can't help it. Sorry if I'm doom and gloom, also sorry for dragging the thread down!

Hi all, MS all the best over on 2nd tri. It feels like a milestone I'll never make!
HF what are you redecorating? Did you not just do you livingroom recently? I'm sure it was your pics with the nice sofa's and you LO climbing on the table?
Imp I can totally relate, I feel the same myself. I thought your scan was next wed, I've booked a private one for a week on sat but it seems so far away, I wish I could just go now but I know there would be little to see, I just hate the uncertaintly.
Penny good luck, let us know how the scan goes.
AFM - Imp I could have written your post! I felt really ill on sunday, headache and really bad nausea but I've not really felt anything the past few days and I can't help but worry that something might be wrong. I still have sore boobs and I'm getting some pains but I had this last time too. I'm only about 5 weeks so I'm well aware that it's early, I just thought the nausea on sunday might have been the start of it and a 'good' sign. Anyway, I'm getting my bloods done this morning to check my HCG levels (tbh it's just so the doctor can record the 'new' pregnancy and I should have a vague idea how far on I might be, although the scope seems to be very wide!) Nothing else from me, just feel like a bit of a spare part at the moment and I'm now thinking stupid things that might have 'caused' things last time and trying to avoid them this time which I know is rediculous, I just can't help it!

Good luck with 2nd Tri mummysimpson!
Horsefan picking the colours is the fun part!!
Imp Ive got to say i dont feel prgnant at all, just bloated! Some days i dont feel any different at all!
missdeedee, you have kinda said it yourself but you have got to try not to keep thinking of last time and comparing the pregnancies. I know its easy for me to say that! I hope it gets easier as your pregnancy progresses!
AFM I start week 8 today (i think!) My midwife booking in app is on tuesday so i need to finish off the epic form they gave me!!
Im running an event tomorrow so i have to remember not to try and move tables by myself or carry too many bannerstands or boxes of leaflets! I think Im going to have to get bossy!

Mrs Bass definitely make sure you don't over do it tomorrow, it's so easy to forget and start moving furniture etc and then think you probably shouldn't have!
I know your right, but as you say it's easier said than done. My bloatings also really better today do thata just another cause of worry! Been for my bloods so will be interesting to see what my results come back at.
08/05/2013 at 10:48
Mrs Bass, take it really easy. I was painting the garden fence on monday and I've had back ache since, I'm sure it's just from all the bending down but I'm still worried and wished I hadn't done it. It's not worth overdoing it!
MissDeedee.... I think that until we get through the next 6/7 weeks neither of us will be able to relax. i just hope that we both get a happy outcome this time.x

MummyS- good luck in 2nd tri!
HF- good luck picking colours, exciting!
Imp- I can only imagine how you must be feeling! Speedy hurry up vibes for your scan and to putting your mind at rest :-) x
Missdeedee- speedy vibes for your scan to hurry up too!
Mrs Bass- def dont over do it, its hard sometimes..I do it as I forget!
AFM- called in work sick today. Had D+V last night and woke with a terrible migraine. Drinking plenty of water and still in bed resting up. All of the children at work seem to be off with it, so its not unlikely that ive caught it from them.
Im currently 9+1 i think! Hoping for my scan date letter to arrive over the next week or so. Feeling pretty anxious about it, like many do I'm sure.
We're due to sign the contracts friday for our first home with a move in date of sometime next week...exciting!
Hi to all that follow! :-)
08/05/2013 at 10:53
I completely agree lovey, I wish I could just fast forward the whole of 1st Tri. I want to feel 'different' this time so I don't keep comparing things to last time x
08/05/2013 at 10:55
Sorry G missed you there! That's not good about the D&V, I hope your feeling much better soon but such exciting news about the house! You must be so looking forward to moving in!

MS - good luck in 2nd Tri x
HF - it's raining here too, booo! Oooh how exciting deciding on a colour. Bet you can't wait for Monday morning. Also I wasn't up to posting yesterday (too nervous) but I saw the picture of your LO, and all I can say is, Awwwwwww!
Imp - thanks for thinking of me :). I felt exactly the same as you up until this morning. But please don't worry, because like you say, its probably still too early for you to be feeling anything. And you don't have long to wait now. But I'm sending you a massive hug anyway, cos a hug always helps xxxx
Missdeedee - please don't think like that, it wasn't your fault. I'm sending you a massive hug too xxxx
Mrs Bass - does anyone at your work know about your pregnancy - is there someone that you can/want to confide in to help make sure you're not stuck doing any of the manual work? If not, take it easy!
Gemini - hope you feel better soon hun. Exciting news about the house!
AFM - early scan this morning! The lady doing it was a bit snotty with me, she took one look at the screen and said, 'well, it's still way to early to see anything of course' in this tone that implied that I shouldn't be wasting her time, and huffed and puffed, and I thought, 'sod you - the doctor referred me for this scan and I can see my baby and I don't give a monkey's what you think'. Officially I'm 5 weeks + 5 days. Too small to see properly but they could measure the yolk sac and also saw a tiny flickering heartbeat. I thought I was 6 weeks 1 day so its not too far off. I'm so happy
08/05/2013 at 11:48
Also Missdeedee and Imp - I don't 'feel' pregnant either apart from being a bit hormonal and tired, but my baby is happily in there with its heart beating away so it goes to show that you can feel un-pregnant and still be fine :-)
08/05/2013 at 11:51
Misdeedee- so excited! Even though hubby is doing everything as im always tired!
Penny- what a snotty woman. So glad you got to see your baby! Congrats! :-)
08/05/2013 at 11:58
Massive congratulations again penny, and thanks for your kind words. It is helping me to try and be positive.
Gemini- how exiting about your house. I bet you can't wait to be in there.
08/05/2013 at 12:07
Hi All- I do pop back to see how you are all doing :)
Penny- yay for your scan! Stuff the snotty woman, your little bean is growing and it's such a reassurance to see something even though to her it might not be much!
And to all the worriers- I didn't (still don't!) feel pregnant at all either apart from being a bit more tired and moody (H would argue this is me all the time though!). Try to stay positive and look forward to your scans :) x
08/05/2013 at 12:11
Penny that must have been so exciting!!!
I do plan to take it easy tomorrow, ive scare myslef most days doing the simplest things! my general cramping isnt as bad as it was the first month or so but sometimes if i more too quickly (getting up from a chair or bed or even laughing to hard) i get a twinge that scares me!!
my team are pretty useless at helping me out but im just going to start giving out orders!!
08/05/2013 at 12:14
Imp, it really will be fine. I know it. Try to relax - its not easy I know, but soon you'll be seeing your baby on that screen. xxxx
I forgot to add, I also resigned today! Hurrah! Bit of an emotional day for me. I'm knackered already - how long until home time??
08/05/2013 at 12:18
Ooops didn't see page 2.
Hey Sam - hope you're ok?
Mrs Bass - yeah it was so exciting! I know there wasn't much to see but there was a tiny heartbeat and that was just incredible. And do take it easy at work - and have fun giving out orders ;-)
08/05/2013 at 12:41
Hi all, I have been awol for a while but still lurking. I had a bleed last week and have been terrified. Early scan tonight so please keep everything crossed.
Hope you're all good ladies and bumps!
