MrsB2013 Thu 21-Nov-13 17:25:47

So sorry Pigs sad

Will catch up properly later on

baggyoldcow Thu 21-Nov-13 17:25:51

The funny thing is, froglet, it's different every time! I'm really knackered this time, sleeping fairly well - every last one I had dreadful insomnia from the start. But happy to try (to answer) smile

Tanny, I know the feeling. It's rather hard to imagine. I had to POAS again today (after a week of restraint!) just to double-check.

coco808 Thu 21-Nov-13 17:31:06

so terribly sorry pigs sad flowers cake

DoctorDonnaNoble Thu 21-Nov-13 17:33:16

sad sorry to hear that pigs. Hope you're looking after yourself.

LadyGoneGaga Thu 21-Nov-13 17:37:12

Sorry to hear your sad news, Pigs. Take good care of yourself and I hope to see you on another antenatal board just as soon as you are ready.

baggyoldcow Thu 21-Nov-13 17:41:25

Sorry, Pigs, just saw your post. thanks xx

snowpink Thu 21-Nov-13 18:10:26

So sorry Pigs, take good care of yourself

NancyinCali Thu 21-Nov-13 18:27:19

So sorry Pigs be kind to yourself thanks

MrsA2 Thu 21-Nov-13 18:30:14

Really sorry to see your update Pigs, take care of yourself.

Jaykay my booking in apt was about 45 mins. There's lots of paperwork to fill in - any health issues and any with close family, height, weight. Blood taken (three vials for me but only one needle) for various tests and had to see in a pot. It was a nightmare getting enough blood from my rubbish veins but apparently drinking plenty of water before makes it easier.

We briefly discussed the birth options - labour ward, birth centre, home birth - but no need to make any decisions yet. Recapped banned foods, said a couple of units of alcohol is fine but ideally not in the first trimester and she checked I didn't smoke (I don't). She also asked about how I'd been feeling and was generally reassuring.

I don't think I learnt anything new but it was so exciting to talk about it all with someone other than my husband (we haven't told anyone yet).

Hope that helps?

ItsAlwaysBetterOnHoliday Thu 21-Nov-13 18:50:11

Sorry, pigs. Look after yourself.

I have a dilemma which I'm hoping collective wisdom can help with! My booking in appointment is for 6 Dec, which is the last day of a contract I've been working on. I've already had to book time away from the office tomorrow because of needing an early scan and they weren't exactly pleased - I've been working late this week and last to make up the hours.

I phoned the hospital to change the date (the letter said you could) and they said the next available slot I could move to was in Jan, after my 12 week scan (which I can't do, obviously).

What would you do? If everything's ok at tomorrow's scan I think I'm going to have to tell my client why I'll need to work a half day on the 6th, but I'd rather not.

This maybe wasn't the best year to become self-employed...

Littleangel21 Thu 21-Nov-13 18:50:22

So sorry pigs. thanksthanks

Froglet88 Thu 21-Nov-13 18:52:11

So sorry Pigs, hope you're ok. Sending you hugs xx

teaandkittens Thu 21-Nov-13 19:00:06

so sorry to hear that pigs thanks

betteronholiday No advice really but I can join you on the bad work timing thing. I'm 5 weeks pg. I started a new job 4 weeks ago. Fucks sake.

ItsAlwaysBetterOnHoliday Thu 21-Nov-13 19:07:04

Oh no, tea, that really is bad timing! I'd be tempted to fiddle my due date when explaining... (Don't know if that's exactly sensible advice...)

jaykay987 Thu 21-Nov-13 19:11:21

pigs
mrsa

always - that is difficult. Is there anyway you can negotiate to finish your contract a day early? (even if it's by agreeing to work the Sunday before)? it's difficult to know without knowing the type of work you do.

if they're really going to make it difficult - could you explain you have an immovable hospital appointment. You're self employed, so they shouldn't be probing for info on what its for if you dont dont want to tell?

teaandkittens Thu 21-Nov-13 19:12:39

haha betteronholiday? that might be a good idea! Although I didn't actually know I was pg until this week and I wasn't actually ttc so they can't be cross, can they??

I was ttc until i got this new job and so decided to wait for a few months. And then it happened accidentally! grin

jaykay987 Thu 21-Nov-13 19:12:51

stupid phone...

I wanted to say so sorry to hear your news pigs.

thanks for the info mrsa

ItsAlwaysBetterOnHoliday Thu 21-Nov-13 19:28:24

Thanks jaykay - that might be a route to go down. I may just have to say I'm working a half day and I'll only charge them for that half day - or offer to make up the work for them another time. It'll work out, I just don't want them to think I'm unreliable as I've really liked working there and they're a nice organisation. Don't really want to say what I do exactly as it might identify me! Ah well.

Have a good eve everyone! I'm in the pub waiting for friends and thinking of excuses for not drinking.

Pearlsaplenty Thu 21-Nov-13 19:31:46

pigs I'm so sorry to hear this flowers sad

alwaysbetter I would just say you have an appointment you cannot change. Can you try to make up your time somehow? Go in early that week? Do some work from home after the appointment?

I had my scan and it's all been resolved so now I'm the same risk as you all. Scan still didn't show much as still so tiny but I'm told I should be reassured that its correct size and heart beat good.

Please could someone add me to the list 29th June smile

LadyGoneGaga Thu 21-Nov-13 19:33:22

That's wonderful news, Pearls grin
