Hello! No mood swings for me so far, just very very tired. Have chosen my hospital for maternity services, now ploughing through "Emma's diary" (does everybody get that from their gp?)

TobyLerone Wed 22-May-13 06:48:05

Good luck, sultana!

The ubiquitous "Emma's Diary" went straight in the bin, along with absolutely everything else in my Bounty pack grin

Sultanajo Wed 22-May-13 07:26:29

Thanks so much ladies. Didn't know which thread to post on this morning so have mixed it up a bit! wink

hello thread 3 ...morning peeps! feeling sick today woohoo im so happy haha.

CatchAsCatchCan Wed 22-May-13 08:34:41

Hello thread three! Have my early scan this afternoon, bricking it! I don't feel the same way I did with the ectopic last year, so I'm fairly confident everything's in the right place this time, but who knows.. For now just dreading the idea of a full bladder. Does anyone else secretly prefer a transvaginal scan like me? I know some women find them uncomfortable/invasive, but I think they're so much less faff and discomfort.

Hope everyone's feeling good today!

gemma277 Wed 22-May-13 08:40:01

Ou good luck Catch!!!

MrsAVB Wed 22-May-13 08:43:46

Good luck catch! I have no experience of the foo foo scan so couldn't say... although I have to say it doesn't exactly appeal....
sarah err... Congrats on the sickness! Haha!

Morning! I'd left a ranty post on the other thread, but that got deleted. Ha ha

My internet still isn't working, I called bt to be told there's a fault they are working on. Great.

My sour cream Pringles taste like salt. Boo!

sarahleanne Wed 22-May-13 09:00:34

haha thanks avb!! its waves of sickness so im happy with that,im glad I feel a little bit pregnant now smile

LadySpencer Wed 22-May-13 09:01:27

Hello ladies! I have my GP appt this afternoon to tell them I'm pregnant. Not sure what to expect?! This is my first pregnancy and awfully anxious about everything, because my boobs aren't hurting a lot I'm thinking I'm not pregnant anymore and other silly things! I'm trying to resist going to buy another test! I haven't bled at all and know that's a good sign. I suppose this anxiety is normal?!

MrsGSR Wed 22-May-13 09:17:10

Pod that scan picture is amazing! Fingers crossed I'll get to see something similar next week, by then I should be 7+2 ish (first scan was 5+6 I think)

Good luck Catch! I had both types of scan yesterday, I'm not sure I prefer it but it definately wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. And (being a neurtoic first time parent to be) I didn't really like her pressing down on my belly for the normal ultrasound.

Sultanajo hoping today goes really quickly smile

Lady I'm the same, the first week I knew I took a test everyday because I was so scared. I've tried to calm myself down because I haven't had any bleeding but it is scary! Hopefully once we get into the second trimester we can all stop worrying a bit and enjoy it (and hopefully those with ms will feel better too!)

MrsGSR Wed 22-May-13 09:26:35

Well, I'm definately identifying with feeling murderous this morning, I just got very irrationally angry that my husband has unplugged the extension lead. I think he's very glad he's working at the moment, usually by the time he gets home I realise I'm being silly and manage to stop myself shouting at him!

TobyLerone Wed 22-May-13 09:28:05

Good luck, Catch smile

LadySpencer Wed 22-May-13 09:35:23

I keep on trying to get a grip. Only found out 5 days ago though so still sinking in. My dh is a positive thinker so he is tasked with keeping my feet on the ground and not letting me think of bad things happening!

Can I ask...how are some ladies having early scans? Are they private ones? Or dating ones? Because I'm anxious some friends have told me to say to the GP that I'm unsure of dates so I don't have to wait until 12 weeks. I'm 5+2 today so don't know how much I'd see if I had one soon or if I'd see a heartbeat? Don't want to make myself even more anxious!

Good luck with scan this afternoon Catch!

GSR glad that somebody else is feeling the same as me!

MrsGSR Wed 22-May-13 09:41:02

I htink most people have just been offered the 12 and 20 week scans, I was planning on paying for one at about 10 weeks (which I still might) as we are going to see all our families just after so it would be nice to be able to tell them everything is ok and show them some scan pictures.

Some people get extra if they have had a few miscarridges previously. I have been given one (and am having another next week) as I had some pain in my lower left abdomen last week and ended up in a&e. In all honesty I'm not sure if they would have given me a scan if it hadn't been for the fact that the first nurse got my blood test results the wrong way round and basically told me I had probably miscarried!
