Popping in while I'm between holidays , came home from Thailand on Monday and we are off again this Sunday for a camping trip. Lovely to see so many happy updates and lots of new June mummies!
Arlais- Congrats on your fantastic news!! Must be amazing knowing you're carrying a perfect baby girl . Have fun choosing names!
Bedlover- Best of luck for your NT scan today! Whatever nerves you're feeling will vanish once you see your wriggling bubba xo.
ABH- So happy for you that everything looked great at your 2nd scan and hope you've relaxed a little now. Good luck for the Panorama results.
hwaterhouse- congrats on your awesome NT results! We contacted people individually to tell them as well. I hope the congrats are flowing in thick and fast!
Orchids- how hard is it catching up in here after a even a short absence?! Yay for low risk NT results and seeing so many real human features! Have fun sharing your wonderful news.
Jay- bummer that your eardrum problem has returned. I hope it resolves itself quickly. The mega belly bloating and gas sure is fun isn't it! My belly is huge by the evenings (I reckon I look 6m preg too). I'm certainly getting my revenge on DH for all the years I've put up with his toxic emissions lol!
JJ- so close to your 12wk scan now! Mine is the Wed after yours and I can't wait either. Best of luck! We've agreed on a surprise and won't find out the sex. I hope you can convince DH to wait it out.
Annerley- Congrats on such an amazing result on your first ICSI cycle! A BFP and 4 frozen blasties is phenomenal!!
Ainsley- Huge congrats on your long-awaited BFP! The wait for the first scan was excruciating for me and I did stupid things like googling blighted ovums and ectopics, worked myself into a terrible state. Please DON'T do that!! I had weekly BTs to give me some reassurance, but mostly I was a mess until I saw the heartbeat. So long as AF stays away and you're not in pain, stay positive and have faith that a miracle is happening xo.
RTkirk- Woo-hoo for great NT results! Nice to hear your workplace are being supportive, though I'm also very surprised you weren't congratulated by everyone. I guess your boss was too busy thinking ahead to mat leave arrangements, which just goes to show that you're obviously an important team member if they're already worried about how to cover for you.
Seahorse- sorry you had a fright with bubs measurements, I'm so thrilled that all is well now and your little one has caught up. I've had a noticeable belly since 8wks and now at 10wks there's no hiding it. I did not expect to show this early and it came as quite a shock to me.
Catlover- yay for seeing a heartbeat and passing the 7wk milestone!
Milly- Sorry the 7wk scan came with bittersweet news for you. Seeing the heartbeat is fantastic but hearing 'threatened miscarriage' is terrifying. Did you have your second scan yet? I hope the bed rest has given bub a chance to latch on tight and the burst blood vessel has cleared up.
Hope4baby- OMG those HCG levels are amazing! Congrats!! Can't wait to find out if you have one or two bubbas on board .
Lots- Yay for 14wks! I hear you on being scared to tell people outside your immediate family & close friends. We've told our nearest & dearest in person & over the phone and stopped at that. I love those moments when the reality of being pregnant sets in, we truly are blessed
Berra- congrats and welcome! Your name seems familiar, perhaps from the NK thread? Awesome to see you with a BFP after taking pred and hope you have an easy pregnancy.
Hposs- I cried when I saw the heartbeat too, such a beautiful sight to behold. I agree with the others, don't be too worried about the measurements. +/- 5 days is normal and I'm sure things will be great at your next scan.
Kittybee- I chuckled at your comment to the sonographer, paranoia is a totally valid reason to get a dating scan! Wonderful news that bub has a strong heartbeat and measurements are perfect. I haven't bought anything and probably won't until after my baby shower. We already have a port-a-cot and bassinet (hand-me-downs). The full on nursery furniture can wait until later as bub will be in our room for the first few months.
Stc- oh wow, twins!! Huge congrats on your great scan results and two bundles of joy!
Ngaiz- Good luck for your scan next week and have fun sending your announcement puzzles! Love that idea . Did you end up getting a doppler?
Hi to October, Nirok, LMM, Veritas and everyone else
AFM- Had a lovely trip to Koh Samui for a friend's wedding but the whole time I was away I just wanted to be home, bizarre! Must be a nesting thing. I'm 10w5d now and have a noticeable bump. I have mixed feelings about my changing body, its reassuring to see my belly growing but not I'm liking the weight piling on everywhere else... I've gained a massive 7kg since my BFP. My NT scan is booked for 30th Oct, can't wait to see how much bub has changed since the last scan at 8wks.
