Sorry to read that Kazza. I'm sure good luck is not far away. Keep positive and enjoy Feb and the BDing!!
Debstar, that is brilliant news. I can't believe you can stop from telling DH. I'd have no hope of that! I look forward to your blood test results to set your mind at ease that it's real.
Gentoo - fantastic to hear that all is ticking along well with you. How many weeks are you? I've lost count (hopeless I know). I had the spotting as well at 9 weeks but nothing at all since so it can definitely be fine. Don't worry too much about the ultrasounds. From what I've read they're basically harmless and in my mind, lowering the stress level of mums when they find out all is well has got to be beneficial to bubs! Safe travels and look after yourself.
