Goosette - I am booked in at 1:45pm too!!!!!! I guess i'll see you there!!!
Awesome!! See you then!
I had bloods done today- 487, the dr seemed happy, so I'm good with that. Still nervous though.
On my phone, but I hope everyone's enjoying today (beautiful weather here in melbs!)
hello lovelies how are we all?
hopeful - how did you end up going telling DH's family your good news? I can sympathise, my DH's family are a real pain too!
WOP - I am glad everything is coming along nicely with Sprout! have you got any plans for when you reach the 12 week mark? it's so soon now!
Giggle - how are you going? did you decide to get another blood test? how are you symptoms going? have you tried any other recipes from 'feeding the bump?' i'm thinking about grabbing a copy..
how are you feeling today Autumn? the waiting is the hardest part isn't it?! i'm sure you just want to know that your bubba is safe.. just hold onto that hope babe, never let it go. please know we are all thinking of you & sending all the & in the world to you & your bubba! xxx
goosette - they're great bloods! awesome news!
AFM - I had my scan today wasn't able to see much on the abdomen scan besides a small sac, so they did a transvaginal ultrasound as well to ensure there was a yolk sac with the gestational sac? the yolk sac was there and everything is as it should be for now. I am measuring 5 weeks, which I knew I was anyway. Unfortunately no heartbeat can be heard as yet, but it is still very early days, and they said if I come back in a weeks time the change will be huge, so I just have to be patient & wait for things to develop as they should. it was nice to see that there was a bubba in my uterus though! DH said it looked like a broad bean .. so I think we have a new nickname on our hands! booked in for first appointment with OB next Wednesday so I will wait and see what he says, hopefully we'll get to have another look at our broad bean soon!
Gracie's mummy - I feel exactly the same! In limbo land! Just waiting for things to happen and to know that they're ok! My report from my scan today actually said "too early to tell viability" - I hate that phrase! Of course it's viable, it's my bubba! I feel so helpless knowing that I can't do anything in the next few very important weeks to ensure things go smoothly. Besides hope & pray & rest! the coming weeks fly for us and we're in our second trimester before we know it! in the meantime, we can always vent to each other
love to all ladies & their beans! xxx
I'm not attempting personals atm I'm on my phone and am too tired. I will be 5 weeks tomorrow, did a digital this morning and it said pregnant 2-3. The one I did last week said 1-2 so that's a good sign. I might grab another pack and test again in a few days to make sure levels are still rising. I see my doctor on Monday.
I went shopping today and brought some lovely sukin skin products. They smell lovely and it's all 100% natural. I'm going to have a quick look online later to make sure the essential oils in it are safe... The lady assured me it was but I would still like to check. I'm absoutely knackered now! Would love a Nanna nap haha.
I've tried quite a few recipes in the book now - highly recommend it.
Back later for personals
Autumn- did I miss reading why you had such an early scan? Now you're just going to have to hold onto happy baby thoughts till you get those next good results My symptoms still have a few days of being less before coming back with a vengeance. You're not out of the game!
Daisy- Congrats on your bean There is an upside to the dildo cam- the only reason why we put up with it!
Giggle- I wish I was into cooking at tho moment. I'm horrified by myself- I've developed a serious vegetable aversion! I'm usually so good at veges and I'm just lucky I suppose that I'm craving fruit. I think I can get most of my vege vitamins and minerals that way. At least thats what What To Expect says!
Goosette- how far along will you be with your scan? So exciting!
Graciesmummy- That friend is on maternity leave and ignoring my messages. Maybe she's just busy with her 6 week old? Who knows. I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt.
Lou- sorry, was it you who asked if the article was online? Maybe it was Hopeful? Sorry, the baby brain has definitely kicked in! Anyway, the link is http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/why...-1226166915591
AFM- had my first spew in a patient room this morning before leaving night duty. Oops. It was a REALLY bad nappy though. Luckily it was while the mum was in the ensuite hosing off the poo and I puked in the sink in the main room. The cleaner saw me though. Totally embarrassing and not nearly as funny as she thought it was. Lucky I told everyone at work about Sprout weeks ago.
Booked my NT scan yesterday too. November 2nd when I will be 12+5. Anxious but looking forward to it!
Love to all the little bumps to be!
WOP - Ewww.. must of been a nasty nappy! I almost had my first chunder yesterday morning when I tried to clean the poop out of the cats litter tray.. i only just held it in! The countdown begins to your 12.5wk scan!! Not long now... how are you feeling in the lead up to your scan?
How rude of your friend to be ignoring your messages, even with a busy life with a new born you still have time to respond to your friends. Try not to let it get to you... your true friends will be there for you and will cry with you on Peanuts due date and will celebrate with you on the day Sprout is born. We are all here for you
Daisy - Congratulations on your first sneak preview at your little 'Bean'! How exciting!! When are you booked in for another one? You will be amazed to see how much Bean has grown next time! It's such a miracle how fast they develop!
Giggle - Sounds like things are progressing along nicely for you and you have a rise in HCG levels based on your digital HPT's. YAY!! I hope you managed to have a Nanna nap this afternoon. I know how you feel, i am extremely tired at the moment too and could just sleep all day...
Goosette - Thats so funny that we are both having scans at UTS at the same time on 12th Nov!! YAY! Make sure you introduce yourself! I hope both our scans go well and we both leave with big smiles on our faces!!
Congrats on your BT results too!
Autumn- how's things going? I hope it's all settling down and that you're ok too.
Hopeful - least you could blame the bad gas on the dogs!! I was out in the beautiful weather with mine, and they loved it. One only lasted about 30 minutes down the park before she collapsed in a cool pile of dirt.
WOP - I finally read the sunday paper (on tuesday!) and there you were! Well done for such a brave retelling. I think i'll be 9 weeks with my scan, so hopefully be able to see something. It fantastic that you're almost up to your 12 week scan! Super exciting! And a work spew! Nice job! It's it funny how we want all those gross symptoms.
Gracie'sMummy- I'll certainly say when I see you on the 12th! I think the time's going to drag; though I am quite apprehensive about going. Like you said, hopefully we leave with big smiles on our faces.
Giggle - Fantastic news about the digital!! The skin products sound lovely too. You've inspired me to get the book too, I want to eat as healthily as possible this time!
Daisy- ooooeerr, dildo cam! At least it helps you see the little broad bean! Hopefully the week goes really quickly and you can see the heartbeat soon.
AFM: Nothing much happening at all, slight cramping (more like pressure), slightly tender boobs, no nausea, eczema's playing up. I'd love a big spew right now! . Going to have another BT next week to see that all is rising as it should be.
Sorry I'm not up for personals today. WOP, I had the early scan because of my symptoms disapearing and spotting starting. They started going on Thursday or Friday and now I feel nothing at all. The spotting hasn't turned red but it didn't last time for me until three weeks later so I'm scared to take it as a positive sign. I have another blood test tomorrow and will try to book in for a scan next week so hopefully I'll have answers either way by the end of next week.
Thanks for all your support.
Just had to pop in to say 5 weeks today I feel like time is dragging so badly... just another 5 days until I see my doctor and hopefully get a peek.
