Hope you all have a fab Saturday:

Hey Sweetpea! I'm still in bed too, intend to say here for as long as possible! Ooh catching your own dinner sounds amazing! Happy 11 weeks.
Thinking of you AR, hope the bleeding has stopped and time flies until your scan.
I actually feel better today. Sickness is still bad but last night I really felt like I had a proper little bump and that made me very happy :) I've got H home all weekend too which is rare these days so yeah feeling much more positive all round, long may it continue!
Can't get my head around being 13+3, I'm nearly second tri!! Eeek!!

SP happy 11 weeks! Im sure time goes faster once you get to double figures!
OB glad you are feeling better and more positive.
AR thinking of you too.
AFM got my nuchal results in the post and low risk! much better than last time so hope that's a positive sign. Off shopping now, hopefully will find some more clothes to wear!

SP, 11 weeks already? What fish did you catch??
OB, glad to hear you are feeling a bt better, and yay to a bump!
MrsV, great news about nuchal results! Happy shopping
Well, I'm jealous of you lot still in bed, H had to work this morning so I'm up with the toddler after a late night last night, was out with work colleagues at a show at the Edinburgh fringe festival. Yawn!! Got mat jeans yesterday as even at 8 weeks my jeans are tight...I'm telling myself it's because its not my first pregnancy rather than the cake and junk ive been eating. I bought a few loose t-shirts in new look too, not mat ones but ones with a bit of room! Going to park soon then H should be back at lunchtime and think we will take the kids into Edinburgh to see the street performers if it stays dry. Then an evening of falling asleep on the sofa for me I think!
Hi to all on later, hope everyone has a good weekend - AR I hope you managed to get a private scan appt, been thinking about you xx
17/08/2013 at 10:09
OB I still can't get over how unwell you've been but I'm glad you are enjoying your bump and have your H home for the weekend! Yay!
That's wonderful news Mrs V! So happy for you! How long did your results take to come through? I'm wondering whether to keep quiet until we get ours back as a bit nervous. Time defo moves quicker once in double figures!
WE we caught pollock and mackerel. My mum's H is a proficient fisherman but also gutted, cleaned and cooked it all. It was fab! It must be great to have the festival on your doorstep! We are through next week for the comedy zone (it doesn't start till 10.45pm!!!!) and another show on the Saturday. Hope you guys have fun!

WE thats what I keep telling myself! Baggy t shirts are the way forward.
SP Because I didn't have the bloods taken before the scan they took them on Monday and letter came today. I think they ring you sooner if there's a problem.
17/08/2013 at 10:17
Just popping on to say thanks to you all for being so supportive. I feel a bit of a fraud being here when i've no idea if i'm even still pregnant!! Looks like we can't get a scan before monday so it's just wait and see. No more red blood since friday night, just brown when i wipe and it's just like CM but brown. Nice. No clue whats going on, still feel very pregnant and sickness is getting worse but that probably means nothing. I will come back and update on MOnday. Finding it hard to imagine a positive outcome.
17/08/2013 at 10:51
AR, I really hope the fact that you still feel pregnant is a sign that it was "one of those things". I've got everything crossed for you, hope you can keep busy this weekend so Monday comes quickly x
17/08/2013 at 11:21
AR, I'm so pleased things haven't got worse. But I know that wont help you to feel better. Here's hoping Monday brings the best news xx
17/08/2013 at 11:27
Oh I never told you - I took the car last night as my excuse for not drinking. One of the girls who I hadn't even been chatting to bumped into me in toilet and said "you're pregnant aren't you?" I said no! And she said "I've got a sixth sense about these things. You're either pregnant and not telling or you are going to be soon". Which I laughed off obviously but talk about put on the spot!
17/08/2013 at 19:57
Evening ladies! Been very busy partying today :) daddy's building a pirate ship ready for the birthday boy tomorrow. It was lovely seeing friends and family today and being able to be open about being pregnant! AR I'm hoping Monday comes quickly for you x
18/08/2013 at 09:14
AR glad the red has stopped. I've had lots of brown cm since about 6 weeks.
WE thats a bit spooky! must have taken you by surprise!
Isis the pirate ship sounds exciting. glad you can tell everyone now. Hope your son has a lovely birthday.
AFM having a lazy morning still in bed. had an awful headache last night so glad its gone this morning.
This morning Im sure I felt the baby move! surely its too early?!
18/08/2013 at 09:18
I wish I was still in bed! I'm watching a pirate vs knight battle on my living room table lol think we're going to go to the park today as requested by the birthday boy then birthday cake later.
I think technically its too early but I'm sure I've felt movements too. Either wayit won't be long til we feel proper movements :)
18/08/2013 at 11:15
AR Things sound like they are okay. I'd have thought there would have been more bleeding/cramping by this point. I'm keeping everything crossed for you!
WE that is just plain weird!! How spooky!! I'd have been speechless!
Isis hope you have fabulous birthday fun today!
MrsV that's quite exciting! I thought it happened a bit later on but I'm sure there's no exact science to it. How are you getting on not telling people?
We are still on Skye and I don't think I've ever been this relaxed. We are mooching about in jammies till late morning, taking afternoon naps, eating lots of nice food...it's bliss!! Sunday in the highlands is a notoriously quiet day (the sabbath!!) so it'll be more of the same today! I don't ever want to go home and back to work!!!
18/08/2013 at 12:14
I'm a bit late catching up. I really struggle on my phone, but I'm in the office now - much easier for personals!
SP - catching your own dinner sounds cool, how did it taste? What did you have it with? Your weekend sounds like perfection!
OB - Glad you were feeling a bit better. And a nice weekend with H, yay!
Mrs V - very good news about your result! Did you find any clothes? And re moving, like Isis says, officially you can't. But... I think where baby-stuff is concerned it's surprising what we know that we oughtn't, according to the experts. I had a miscarriage the week of my son's first birthday, I SWORE I was pregnant (those awful feelings again?! so soon?!), but no BFP and no one would have it, eventually my GP consented to a scan and I was right, I had been pregnant. And this time around, I felt a right wally on TTC, 10 days before my period was due, feeling a lot ot pregnancy symptoms and feeling like I *must* be, despite no BFP. I think sometimes we should trust our bodies more :D
WE - That's hilarious about your colleague, that would freak me out. How could she tell???
Isis - how lovely to be open about it now, hope the birthday tea goes well.
AR - thinking of you stll x
Us? Me & H rarely get days off together so yesterday was wonderful. Shopping for bigger work dresses (seriously! I'm only 6.+5 and I am poking out at the front and it's not even chips and chocolate that's doing it), browsing bookstores, I got a haircut and then we ventured in to Mothercare. I had a proper little 'moment' watching my husband and son checking out the travel systems and advising me on what they thought we needed. Heart-soar :) I was tired and sicky and headachey but a good time was had, we had dinner out then cinema and then home for 10pm. Brill! Today I'm working until 3, but I like it, empty office and no crises to sort. Hubby's working 'til 6 so I'm going to make a 3 course slimming world meal later. I rarely cook, it's always hubby, I'm very spoilt!
We probably have to cancel our Edinburgh trip Thursday - gutted - dog-sitting issues. Not sure how to get the £300 ticket money back :(
Scan Wednesday. Fingers crossed.

Hey all, I found out last night / this morning that I am pregnant roughly 2-3 weeks according to the clear blue digital thought I would come across to MD and was pointed into the direction of this thread. So look forward to talking to you all x
18/08/2013 at 18:56
