Well done Boo, marking my place.

Why have you got to have a drip tomorrow Cartoon?

little to zap away my nasty nk cells!
how are you?

Here you go, new thread, new BOO, what do you think ::twirls::?? I thought it was about time, New Year was a while ago after all smile

Cartoon do you have blood tests to make sure the drips are working or is the success of the pregnancy enough to go on?

Little how is it all going?

successful pregnancy is all the proof we need to show that its working.
looking forward too my scan. we had an NHS scan on tues, my midwife booked me an extra slightly early one. I got a bit teary seeing pebble move! its so nice having all these extra scans. if slightly expensive!
just wondering did anyone Not have a nuchal scan?

We had the nt measurement at our 12 week scan, they do it as standard whilst scanning. Along with the blood test results it was very reassuring.

my mw said it was my choice so we're not having it. dh really doesn't want it I was kinda on the fence.

A new thread, excellent!

cartoon, we didn't have NT done with DS because we wouldn't have had invasive testing (because of the miscarriage risk) or a termination regardless of the result. With DD1, her NT was 11.3mm, so they told us the result because it was so bad and we needed referral to fetal medicine. Then it was done automatically as part of my investigations this time with DD2. I imagine if I ever do it again, I would have NT done as part of the many tests we have to have but it would be for risk stratification and we still wouldn't have invasive testing or a termination in any event.

see we figured, it won't change anything. we would never terminate this baby. plus its not a definite answer is it. u could spend months worrying because u got a high risk and then the babies fine. what will be will be.

Hello ladies. Great new thread!
Very tired in the Olives house at the mo, DS2 decided he wanted to feed all night last night and scream his head off if I dared to try and take him off the breast!! The night before we had no sleep as he had that horrible newborn mucous vomiting all night and the night before I was in labour so I am slightly delirious today! Did have 4 hours of sleep this morning as he finally slept after his marathon feeding session! Am hoping milk comes in soon to try and satisfy him! Will post birth story when I have more energy and functioning brain cells - may be 2014! Despite the tiredness we are all elated with our new addition, DS1 is adorable with him, it makes me cry watching them together!

Hello all, joining the brooking for loads of spring grads.

olives, hope your milk comes in later so you can have more sleep. I had DS weighed today and he is 10 lb 14 oz so I am in awe of your DS2 and looking forward to birth story.

cartoon brooking for another lovely scan for you.

Boo, love the new name and new thread.

Afternoon. Just marking place, tho should probably move onto grad thread ...

Whims you don't have to actually move, you could live with us and visit the post grads regularly smilesmile

Olives hope your milk comes in so you can get some rest thanks

Bartlet loves to see you, hope you are all well.

stdavidsstdavidsstdavids

another good scan for me. he says my baby moves a lot! exept I couldn't really see!blush sad maybe my bladder wasn't as full as usual. sad

Yay Cartoon that is brilliant news, done nice and early this time, you didn't have to wait around all day smilesmile

yup had to get up at 5am to get there though! I've been studying my picture. I think pebble is facing down. but that's a completly different position to before. is that possible?

Yeah completely normal, little pebble (love that name) is playing a game of super twister right up until there is no room left for it to move much any more (about now for me)

Face baby will wriggle around and move all the time even though you can't feel it! So even scan baby is likely to be in a different position! They're still so very tiny at this stage!!

feel silly I've had a bit of a cry cos I can't tell what's what's what. but the more I look the more I can see. Mr s is very quick with his scans hopefully ill get a better look on Wednesday at my NHS scan. thanks for reassuring me.

Give it a couple more weeks and you'll be able to see everything so much clearer

Today we're mostly conforming to gender stereotypes in the sparkle household! Mrsparks has gone to the tip with a wave of his hand declaring he was "off to do manly stuff" while I'm at home doing the housework! Something I'm actually enjoying more now!!! I assume its the whole nesting thing kicking it!
