@MrsErinR - how did your scan go today? Good news I hope
Hi AngeQ, haven't had my scan yet. It's Thursday afternoon as the FS wanted us to wait 10 days to make sure it was conclusive. Thanks for asking after me though. :-)
Good luck MrsErin. Will be thinking of you!!
Lizlh how did your scan go?
AFM first apt with OB went really well, he was really nice, friendly and informative. Few things to think about but will wait til 12wks before I make up my mind.
It has been so fun telling family - my mum completely lost it, we secretly filmed it and so glad we did, its hilarious in an emotional kind of way!
MrsErin - GL for your scan Thursday hun
Jb - ohhh how exciting!! We have told our family (well both parents), as it was really hard esp when they knew we were doing IVF and my Mumw as here to mind my DS while we were over and back for the EPU & ET etc. Have also told my sister and a few close girlfriends but won't announce it til 12 week mark. I'm 6 weeks today so exactly half way to 12 weeks, taking forever!!
AngeQ - Try not to worry sweetie, I know it is much easier said than done, but try and think positive and not negative. I honestly think the mind is a very powerful thing so if you can , try and think happy thoughts only for you and bub. GL at your scan and big hugs.
AFM I am just plodding along, nausea is now on and off daily but isn't too bad. My 7 week scan is in 6 days, and counting!! xx
Hope you're having a good day.
I was on skype yesterday with a friend of mine who just had her first IVF baby 6 weeks ago. It was nice to chat with her, see the baby and shre our news, but she thought it was a good time to tell me about her horrible birth story (4.7kg baby - naturally... ouach) and the miscarriage she had the previous IVF cycle.
I had the worse night and am feeling quite down today. I can't wait for the third blood test on Friday and a scan next week. And the 12 weeks mark... When does it stop?
I will follow Rozzie's advise and think positive.
AngeQ - you and I need to do a few Om-shanti!
Agreed Lillaa! I was at a friends place tonite & she pulled out some Louise Hay positive affirmation cards to take home as she is concerned as I am about my negativity! Was really good to have someone to talk about with so feeling better tonite
On phone again so will update roll call tomorrow...
I think I'm in denial :/
I know sometimes it feels difficult to be positive as its all so fragile so just do a day at a time. I chat away (still in my head cos I feel stupid and because baby has no ears yet!!) to the baby and try and stay positive. Hubby is very cautious and keeps saying after 12 weeks he will relax. Belly gets a little rub before sleep and thats it from him!
After meeting the obstetrician on Tues I was on a high as I had now become a normal, run of the mill,pregnant person!! Dr was lovely too and really easy to ask questions etc. After our scare last Friday we are still nervous but as days pass the better the odds become. Was a sick as a pig yesterday ALL day long and loved it. (wasnt working so it was easy to be miserable at home!) Nausea is the way to go! Take a day at a time ladies - we never know whats in the future anyway.
Agreed I'm so happy when the nausea comes
