CVS tomorrow

Hi ladies
Had 12 week scan last Thursday with large nuchal measurement. They tried to do CVS last fri but too risky with position of placenta. Trying again tomorrow but I'm not hopeful. They didn't talk to me about nasal bone but in notes said 'unable to examine' which doesn't sound hopeful, sadly. Waiting is just the worst. If they can't do tomorrow it means another week or so until amino.
This is my first pregnancy. I'm 33. I'm finding it hard to function, just feel so down and tearful. I can't work as I am a teacher for very young children with special needs and it just feels too emotional. In my head this pregnsncy is over, I am not optimistic but each day I'm getting bigger, full of hormones and still being sick..... Just don't know what to do sad

Hi,

Was supposed to have my CVS on Tuesday but they couldn't do it because my bowel was in the way, am now rescheduled for next Monday and am not hopeful that I won't have to wait another week after that for an amnio. I don't really have any advice but just wanted to say I totally understand the dissapointment and frustration when you're told that they can't do the proceedure and the exhaustion waiting for news. I've gone back to work today just to keep my mind off things but I understand in your proffession how it would be just the opposite.

What was your nuchal measure, did you they do the blood test too and did they give you a risk level?

massagegirl Thu 29-Nov-12 10:26:29

Thanks for you reply. It's horrible isn't it. It was 3.9 then 4 on second scan when they couldn't do cvs. Same my bowel in way, placenta was in back wall. I asked to not be told the blood results as if the odds are high or low I'll still feel crap and it wouldn't ease my mind but might make me even more down.
Well done for getting back to work. I wish I could just to occupy myself. Hope you are coping ok. Xx

suzyrut Thu 29-Nov-12 10:43:08

Don't know if this is possible for you but my dp and I took the day off when I had planned to be recovering yesterday and went and did Christmas shopping then went to the cinema. Didn't totally take my mind off things but I did at least feel distracted for a while. It's hard getting up and out of the house, all I felt like doing was lying around in bed but I really felt better for it once I'd done it.

I am ok today am have had quite a few problems with this pregnancy already, my dating scan was actually my 5th scan so I think I'm getting used to the rollercoaster. I won't tell you to stay positive because that can only come from inside really and people telling you that there's nothing you can do or that it may well be ok doesn't help when you're in the midst of it all.

Fortunately I have a really lovely boss and my dp, friends and family are being amazing even my ex mother in law who was not exactly delighted to learn I was pregnant has been very supportive. Amazing really because I don't feel like I'm being the nicest person to be around!

Are you getting much support from your RL friends and family?

massagegirl Thu 29-Nov-12 10:48:56

Yeah amazing support. My mum came to visit the past couple of days and really lifted my spirits. My partner has tomorrow off and as I'm sure they won't be able to do cvs I think christmas shopping and lunch would be good idea, in fact we were meant to do that on day of 12 week scan but I was but of mess afterwards.
I had bleeding in early pregnancy so am also no stranger to the scan! I get them to turn screen away now as just too hard to see what loos like healthy baby wriggling around but we all deal with things differently.
Glad you have goid support, it makes such a huge difference.

suzyrut Thu 29-Nov-12 16:03:40

In case I don't get chance to log on again later I just want to wish you good luck tomorrow xx

massagegirl Thu 29-Nov-12 17:20:58

Thank you! Xx

suzyrut Fri 30-Nov-12 11:57:54

Hi,

Just to let you know I've been keeping my fingers crossed for you today, hope your appointment has gone/is going to go well.

xx

massagegirl Fri 30-Nov-12 12:56:31

Hi Suzy
As I thought placenta hadn't moved. Amnio booked a week on Monday.
Really hope you have better luck at yours.
Off Xmas shopping now... Good distraction!
Xx

suzyrut Fri 30-Nov-12 13:05:09

Hi,

Really sorry to hear that, I think I'm feeling pretty resigned to the same fate. Hope you can relax and get some good Christmas shopping under your belt!

xx

massagegirl Sun 02-Dec-12 19:23:38

Hi Suzy
Just to say good luck tomorrow. Hope they can do cvs.
Fingers crossed. I went in totally not expecting them to do it so wasn't to disappointed but still frustrating as each week passes belly getting bigger!
Xx

suzyrut Mon 03-Dec-12 09:50:28

Hi,

Thanks, I know what you mean about the belly getting bigger, struggled to get into even my biggest trousers this morning but daren't buy anything maternity as it feels like it would be bad luck! I'm just relying on baggy tops and long scarves at the moment!

I have convinced myself it's not going to happen today anyway as I can't see how my insides can have rearranged themselves enough in 6 days, have even gone into work this morning and will just go straight to the hospital from here.

Do you know if there's a chance that they won't be able to do an amnio at 15 weeks? I'm so paranoid now I've started to worry that I won't have enough fluid!

xx

massagegirl Mon 03-Dec-12 10:03:54

I asked the doctor the same thing as was so worried about them not bring able to do amnio. She said actually the position of placenta being bad for cvs should make amnio easier and it's rare not to be able to do it. Think ill actually go mad if they can't do it!
That's good you're in work, I'm actually missing work and a normal routine but hopefully not much longer. Good thing about no work is I can live in leggings and they're stretchy!
Good luck! Xxx

suzyrut Mon 03-Dec-12 17:45:46

Hi,

Well to my surprise they managed to do the cvs, wasn't pleasant but really wasn't as bad as I was expecting. Am relieved but now just in that nervy period of waiting for the cramping to start and hoping it doesn't get any worse than that.

Dp has practically chained me to the sofa and will take tomorrow off work. They've said that they should have the results by Thursday, have very mixed feelings Bout fixing out now, I won't to know but just don't know how I'd face bad news. Eurgh there is just nothing ok about this process!

Hope you're doing ok, are you booked in for Friday again?

Suzy xx

suzyrut Mon 03-Dec-12 17:47:00

Sorry can't type well on iPad, I meant that I have mixed feelings about finding out the results!

massagegirl Mon 03-Dec-12 18:39:35

Really pleased they could do it, that's great. Have fingers crossed you get good results. I'm in for amnio next Monday just want it done now! The waiting is just horrible. Definitely you need to have relaxing day tomorrow, lots of time on the sofa.
I guess I'm being pretty negative in just expecting bad news, but have got my head around the fact we'd probably terminate and so I am just finding the waiting really hard. I've just found that the drs don't give you much hope but I guess they can't tell you it will all be alright!
Hope you have a relaxing evening being looked after! Xx

massagegirl Wed 05-Dec-12 08:11:29

Hope you are feeling ok and haven't been in too much discomfort xx

suzyrut Wed 05-Dec-12 09:23:39

Morning,

Was strictly confined to the sofa under dps orders yesterday he was lovely and wouldn't let me move a muscle! Haven't really had any discomfort but have kept myself dosed up with paracetamol. Noticed a bit of spotting this morning but apparently that's normal, will keep an eye on it though.

I feel like I'm in a bit of a bubble at the moment and now we might actually be getting results I almost want to go back a week as it's starting to get a bit real again, can't win really!

Hope you're holding up ok.

Suzy xx

massagegirl Wed 05-Dec-12 10:06:34

Fingers crossed for your results. Is this your first baby?
I'm ok keeping busy and talking stuff through with understanding friends has been really helpful. Feel more positive about everything whatever the outcome. To start with it feels like the end of the world and then you end up being more practical so I feel more mentally prepared for bad news, think I'd fall off my chair if it was good news!
Xx

suzyrut Wed 05-Dec-12 10:27:20

hiya. No this is my 3rd I have two older children who are 12 and 9 and the blood tests weren't around when I had them just the nuchal scans. I'm now a lot older (38 when this one arrives) which puts me at a higher risk anyway.

It's quite hard hiding this from my other children, have been snappy and ill tempered and making excuses for them staying with my ex husband and grandparents so that I could do the tests. It's also quite hard as my tummy is enormous!

I think in a way it's easier to prepare for the worst and I really haven't got comfortable with this pregnancy because of the previous worries we've had as well so being given the all clear would be a huge surprise for me too.

Most of my friend have been great, my mum is the only one who doesn't think before she speaks sometimes her best comment so far being..."well if it doesn't work out at least you know you can still conceive quickly" (we conceived in the first month!)

massagegirl Wed 05-Dec-12 11:19:05

I'm 33 and conceived first month too, first baby and hoped it would go bit smoother than this! Must be so hard with your other children when you just want to curl up and deal with what's going on.
Some people don't think before they speak, 2 of my friends had abortions due to not being ready rather than anything wrong and say they understand but it's just not the same! Xx

suzyrut Thu 06-Dec-12 09:52:05

Ha yep I thought that, my two previous pregancies, although they had their problems, where nothing like as stressful as this one.

Yikes no having a termination for "not being ready" isn't the same and i speak as someone who is pro-choice and has had a termination, the decision making process felt nothing like this.

This is my dp's first child and I think he's concerned that if this one doesn't work out I won't want to do it again and I honestly don't know right now how quickly I'd want to start the whole process again.

Fortunately/unfortunately I've got a really important piece of work to do today so it's keeping my mind off phoning the hospital, don't know if it's going to be my best work though!

suzyrut Thu 06-Dec-12 09:52:35

sorry that was a bit of a rambly post, not quite with it! xx

snapple21 Thu 06-Dec-12 12:43:59

i have my fingers crosed for you and i hope you get a good outcome. having been where you are 5 weeks ago if you need to talk no matter what the result feel free to pm me xx

suzyrut Thu 06-Dec-12 13:38:53

Thank you snapple and massagelady. It was good news, I can't believe it, honestly still think I'm in shock. Will now have extra fingers and toes to keep crossed for a good result for you next week xxx

massagegirl Thu 06-Dec-12 16:20:13

So pleased for you... Fantastic! Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy with no worries!!!! Xxx

massagegirl Thu 06-Dec-12 16:22:30

So pleased for you... Fantastic! Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy with no worries!!!! Xxx

suzyrut Thu 06-Dec-12 16:27:46

Yep I'm sure it's all down hill from here hmm

This may sound strange but I hope my news hasn't made you feel worse, I know happy for me is a given but I don't like to assume the impact on your feelings, needless to say I'll be here for handholding till you get your news too.

Thanks for all your support and messages it's really made such a difference to know that there was someone who does really totally understand what I'm going through xxx

massagegirl Thu 06-Dec-12 16:36:14

Oh no please don't worry at all!!! I'm totally fine. Have a lot of pregnant friends at the moment and don't feel anything negative to those with healthy babies/pregnancies at all. I'm really pleased that you've had good news and the bloody waiting is over. To be honest I feel it's been going on so long I'm just looking forward to getting back to normal life whatever the outcome!!
Have a great and for once stress free evening.
Xxxx

suzyrut Fri 07-Dec-12 14:42:39

Thanks massagegirl. Hopefully your wait should be under a week now with your amnio on Monday, at some points it felt like the waiting would actually never be over even though logically I knew it would.

Do you have any keeping busy plans over the weekend? xx

massagegirl Fri 07-Dec-12 16:01:03

Going to try and put up Xmas tree and maybe have a cheeky mulled wine and just generally chill out time with my boyfriend and try and feel a little Christmassy! I normally love this time of year. Xx

suzyrut Mon 10-Dec-12 07:21:59

Hi had really busy weekend with tree and more (seems never ending) Christmas shopping. Just wanted to say good luck for today, hope everything goes well and you finally get a bit closer to getting out of limbo. Xxx

massagegirl Mon 10-Dec-12 09:30:45

Thank you Suzy x

suzyrut Mon 10-Dec-12 10:21:58

Let me know how it goes, will have everything crossed foryou xx

massagegirl Mon 10-Dec-12 11:58:06

Will do. Not until late afternoon but have my mum coming over shortly xx

massagegirl Mon 10-Dec-12 12:01:09

Thank you for the crossing of fingers! Xxx

suzyrut Mon 10-Dec-12 12:22:52

They should really schedule all these appointments first thing! Hope you mum can distract you with lots of chat and things. Did you find the people at your hospital nice, I actually found mine made the whole experience a lot more bareable? x

massagegirl Mon 10-Dec-12 12:30:14

The hospital have been so lovely. Makes a real difference. Although I'm kind of such of going there for appointments! Xx

massagegirl Mon 10-Dec-12 12:32:13

Sorry that meant to say I'm sick of going there! Xx

massagegirl Mon 10-Dec-12 15:49:20

Hi Suzy. All done and was fine. Just so glad it's over and not much more waiting! Xx

suzyrut Mon 10-Dec-12 16:24:10

So pleased it's done and it went well. I hope you've got your feet up and dp is making you lots of nice cups of tea and bringing you biscuits!

Did they spend long scanning you, I had quite a long scan before mine and did they tell you when you'd have the results? xx

massagegirl Mon 10-Dec-12 17:05:45

Yes feet up with a cuppa. She did detailed scan and said all was looking good structurally but I won't take much comfort from that yet. Should have results Thursday..... Everything crossed!! Hope you've treated yourself to some nice maternity clothes xxx

suzyrut Tue 11-Dec-12 11:03:32

Sounds like the scan was goodish news, I took some hope from mine but it was the blood test that changed my results so it didn't totally console me either.

hmmmm nice and maternity clothes don't seem to be two things that go together, got a couple of things in H&M and a couple in Bennetton. They announced that they're changing the dress code at work in the next few weeks but won't tell us what to (even though I've emailed our HR director explaining my cirumstances) so I've not been able to go crazy anyway!! Fortunately I live in an area which is very family orientated so I could actually go into shops and try things on which does help. I don't really dress in a mumsy way normally (it's like a boden catalogue shoot at my kid's school so I associate that with what mum's wear??) so struggeled with a lot of the maternity wear on offer (tops especially I've noticed).

How are you feeling today, still resting up I hope, I felt like a bit of a fraud by the next day as I was fine, hope you're feeling just as well!

xx

massagegirl Tue 11-Dec-12 11:24:55

I'm feeling fine but have some films and will stay firmly planted to sofa just to be safe! I'm lucky that my work is very casual as I'm
Normally covered in play dough and paint. Hope your dress code won't be too strict. Yep I'm not a Boden kinda girl either... There's not an ounce of yummy mummy in me! Have been sick twice today can't wait for that to stop, knackered and just getting over chest infection, sometimes life is a bit mean isn't it?! Xx

suzyrut Tue 11-Dec-12 16:57:44

Sometimes life is very mean and you sound like you've had more than your fair share of that recently!!! I found when I was feeling sick earlier that sitting down did make my nausea a little better as did Waitrose valencia orange lollies which was literally the only thing that I could fancy for a while. Has your sickness always been bad and is it getting better?

Had a massive rant to my boss about dress code faff earlier because the HR director has provided a response which boils down to "comfortable but appropriate for your role" i.e. no actual help unless I'd actually had my eye on a resetrictive leather corset!

massagegirl Tue 11-Dec-12 17:53:25

The nausea used to be fairly constant which has def improved. Now I just randomly gag and sometimes puke for no apparent reason but not too much! Such fun!
I reckon you should turn up in leather corset... Bloody stupid rules.

Good luck for results x

massagegirl Wed 12-Dec-12 07:30:07

Thank you fruit salad xx

suzyrut Wed 12-Dec-12 09:40:41

Morning hope you're well not long now I am sure you can't wait for tomorrow, are they going to call you or do you have to go in to see them?

I spent last night in A&E because of bleeding and some cramping, everything turned out to be ok, they listened to the heatbeat and did an internal to see if cervix is closed (it is). I'm going to start looking for names that mean trouble!

massagegirl Wed 12-Dec-12 11:09:43

Oh no Suzy you poor thing you've not had an easy time of it at all. Hope you are doing ok today. Any bleeding is scary but glad they've said all is well. Think we are both owed a holiday.... Maldives anyone?!
They are going to call.... So of course am staring at the phone!
Look after yourself today xxx

suzyrut Wed 12-Dec-12 11:45:20

Thanks massagegirl am back at work as had a supplier negotiation to complete today just don't feel like I can keep taking time off. I spoke to the screening midwife and she said that spotting is normal a day or two after but any longer and you should go straight to A&E because of miscarriage risk, this probably sent me into a bit of a panic, useful to know though. A lovely old man asked me if I was ok and I promptly burst into tears, I think I definitely need that holiday, still not long till Christmas thank goodness!

Do you think there's a chance your results could come today? I will keep my fingers crossed for you! xx

massagegirl Wed 12-Dec-12 12:16:57

I am queen of bursting into tears at the moment so you're not alone! A friend sent me a voucher for a local beauty salon to go and treat myself, was so lovely but nearly caused tears!
Yep the midwife said it might come back today which is annoying as I can't relax thinking there might be a call. I swing from being calm and positive to really upset... All part of the process I guess.

massagegirl Wed 12-Dec-12 13:23:05

I just got the call..... Good news!!!! I can't believe it. Have another detailed scan on Christmas Eve, hopefully it will all go well and we can maybe enjoy christmas xxxxxx

suzyrut Wed 12-Dec-12 15:49:38

Oh my god that is brilliant news I am sooooooooooooooooo pleased for you. Now that's something to burst in to tears over! You should go out and celebrate tonight, I had a small glass of prosseco over lunch the day we found out and it was the best I'd ever tasted!

What is the detailed scan for??

Congratulations xxxxxxx

massagegirl Wed 12-Dec-12 16:34:17

The detailed scan is anomaly but midwife just called to put app back to 28th as they want to keep 24th for emergencies. They couldn't examine face in scan, think due to way baby was laying. I hope there's a face... They didn't seem to think anything to worry about. Will also have detailed heart scan around same time as nuchal can indicate problem but guess you don't need that if prob was your bloods?
I think I'll properly celebrate in jan once all the scans are done. But at least it's a huge load off my mind! Can't quite believe it might all be ok!
Xxxx

newbie6 Wed 12-Dec-12 22:22:37

So glad both of your results came back positively, I went through the same thing and know exactly how you feel. I'm 34 weeks now smile wish you both happy, healthy remainder of your pregnancies. X

massagegirl Thu 13-Dec-12 07:58:31

Thank you newbie. It's not the start to pregnancy I thought it would be but am crossing fingers the rest is less eventful! Hope you are feeling well , you must be getting excited now. Xx

suzyrut Thu 13-Dec-12 09:55:49

Thanks newbie. 34 weeks now that's brilliant, you'll have a lovely new baby for the new year!

massage I'm sure it will take a while to sink in about it being good news, it has for me, telling people at work and my older children has helped alot for me to start thinking of this as a "real" pregnancy that's going to end with a baby (fingers still tightly crossed)!

massagegirl Thu 13-Dec-12 12:55:05

Am having full cardiac scan on Monday.... Hopefully all will be well and then can tell more people! Xx

suzyrut Mon 17-Dec-12 11:49:22

Hi massagegirl sorry been a hectic few days at home. Hope your cardiac scan goes well xx

massagegirl Mon 17-Dec-12 13:12:29

No worries. Cardiac and full scan both good. Thank you! Xx

suzyrut Mon 17-Dec-12 14:03:30

wow what a brilliant christmas present, you must be over the moon (when it sinks in at least!)

Do you think you'll go back to work after Christmas?

Am so pleased for you xx

massagegirl Tue 18-Dec-12 09:03:04

Hi Suzy
Yes lovely Xmas present indeed. Can start enjoying it now, although hugely sick this morning! Will be back at work after Xmas and actually so looking forward to it. Did you get the results of your full cvs screening. I should have those next week, although they said its much rarer for something to come up there.
Xx

suzyrut Tue 18-Dec-12 09:45:04

Hi,

No in the end we chose not to have the test as it was going to cost us £250 apparently because the nuchal was normal they don't do the full karaotyping (sp?) routinely in any of the London hospitals. They also said that if something did come up then they might not be able to explain it?? We had intended to but the consultant pretty much talked us out of it. My only dissapointment is that I'm now not going to find out whether it's a boy or girl, but we figured we could pay for a gender scan if we were really desperate to know. Also I have my 20 weeks scan booked on 17th so should really be able to be patient (not my biggest virtue).

Did you ask to find out the sex?

Apart from the sickness is the excitement starting to kick in??

xx

massagegirl Tue 18-Dec-12 10:09:46

The consultant said she felt that as the nuchal wasn't that big and structurally everything looked normal that she didn't think anything would show in second set of tests. But they don't make promises. I'm not sure about finding out sex, would be nice to get organised and buy pink or blue but I'm not sure!!
My test was at kingston and then detailed scans at st George's. they've been really great.
Yes excitement starting and also slight fear what with being first baby!
How are you feeling? Are you other children excited? Xx

suzyrut Tue 18-Dec-12 14:40:24

OMG I might've passed you in the waiting room I am at Kingston as well! Who did you see, I saw Miss Peregrine and Dr Breeze, Miss Peregrine was the one who told me that the full karaotyping wasn't necessary. I thought they were brilliant as well and in fact was thinking that I should really write a letter to say thank you but i've lost my supervisor of midwives leaflet so didn't know who to write to!

I'm feeling pretty ok, starting to feel the movements by my placenta's anterior so sometimes it's hard to differentiate between that and the digestive issues I seem to be having at the moment.

Have to see Mr Pooley on Thursday because I had pre-eclampsia with my daughter but apart from that am just looking forward to 20 week scan on 17th Jan.

How pregnant are you btw? We could easily end up on delivery at the same time!!

x

massagegirl Tue 18-Dec-12 14:59:55

No way!!! I saw miss pelegrine too. Small world! She really knows her stuff... In fact the dr at George's told me that is was good to have her as she was so experienced.
I'm due 1st of June so am just over 16 weeks now. Not sure if feeling movements, some flutters I guess!
How about you? How many weeks?
Xx

suzyrut Tue 18-Dec-12 15:07:12

Due 2nd June, this is freaky! If you tell me you live in Hampton now I swear I am going to pass out! xx

massagegirl Tue 18-Dec-12 15:10:02

Ha! Strangely we looked in Hampton when buying but no I'm in esher! Am planning on swimming in Hampton pool when the weather is bit warmer though, does that count. Crazy small world! I've been into kingston loads for distraction tactics while waiting for results but its just so manic now with Xmas shoppers that buying bigger clothes will have to wait! X

suzyrut Tue 18-Dec-12 16:16:36

Esher's lovely though I doubt there's much in Bernard for the pregnant lady!!

I found Kingston really good for maternity clothes (must be the demographic because I work quite close to Westfield where there is literally nothing), Gap, H&M, John Lewis (just Seraphine which is v.expensive) and Benetton (oh and there's that jo jo maman bebe but was totally mumsy!) and nice to actually try things on rather than just look on the internet.

Having said that I agree it is absolutely crazy there now, as I'm waking early I've been in there at 9 the last couple of times but by 11.30 I want to go home because it's getting too much!

Just wait till your son/daughter is a few years old you'll be making special trips to see the bears in Bentalls! xx

massagegirl Tue 18-Dec-12 18:16:17

Will try H&M need something to wear over Xmas and new year parties as staring to feel very fat! If we don't speak before then just wanted to say have a brilliant christmas time. Thanks do much for your support and messages its made a massive difference. We'll have to meet for kingston coffee during maternity leave to celebrate healthy bumps (fingers crossed!)
Xxx

suzyrut Thu 20-Dec-12 13:34:33

Hi,

Thanks and thanks for your support too, was a massive relief to have someone to talk to who actually knew what I was going through. As supportive as my dp is (and he's great) he can be a worrier himself and I never liked to make him feel any worse!

Had consultant appointment this morning about blood pressure issue in my last pregnancy, I don't think I will be seeing a midwife again but will just be seeing him and have more appointments post 30 weeks but he didn't sound too worried at the moment though I did already test positive for protein, I just can not be normal!

Hope you're ok and yes if i don't chat to you before have a lovely (relaxing!) Christmas and will look forward to that coffee xx

massagegirl Thu 20-Dec-12 20:31:58

Funny you should say about being normal. I had midwife app and they found ketones in my wee sample. Apparently means body is starting to use up fat reserves. So told to eat more often and have also read online can also be sign of dehydration... So am drinking lots.
It's upset me which is ridiculous really but I just want a break! So am trying to eat regularly but hard as no real appetite. I'm not a skinny girl so very unusual to be told to eat more... I know I shouldn't complain!
Hope your blood pressure stays ok xxx

suzyrut Fri 21-Dec-12 09:48:45

What are we like! I know what you mean about just wanting a break, would be lovely for someone to say, yep everything's looking good, we'll see you in a month!

Ah ketones I remember those they featured heavily in the Dr Atkins diet book that my ex-husband bought me for Christmas one year! Still it's not easy to eat when you're in a state of anxiety for weeks at a time. Are you stil being sick?

xx

massagegirl Fri 21-Dec-12 09:54:19

No just really nauseous, migraines and generally feeling rubbish. Hoping that upping food and water might help?!
What a charming present from your ex husband... Reckon I'd have lobbed it back at him!
In the cardiac scan they said the heart looked 'perfect' I made her say it again as couldn't believe someone was saying something like that about my pregnsncy.
Off to get my hair done, it's an absolute state I'm a little embarrassed to go but sure they've seen worse!
Xx

massagegirl Fri 28-Dec-12 15:27:27

Hi Suzy,
Just wanted to let you know full screening cans back as normal!
Hope you bad peaceful christmas. X

massagegirl Fri 28-Dec-12 17:10:25

Silly phone
Cans = came

Hi massagegirl what wonderful news am so pleased for you.

Christmas was lovely with the exception of one episode of bleeding over so was back at the hospital again, fortunately I seem to be at the stage where they take me into maternity now rather than having to sit in horrible A&E. They are still saying they think it's related to the CVS but I think I might just be having that kind of pregnancy!

Back to work today and it's soooooooooooooo hard!

Hope you had a lovely restful time xx

Glad all ok with you, horrible to have more bleeding. Glad y

Glad you can go straight to maternity now though. Fingers crossed that's the last time!
Went back to work today, bloody knackered! But good to have sense of normality back too.
Xx

Forgot to ask...did you find out the sex??? xx

massagegirl Tue 08-Jan-13 13:09:11

No, although I know it's there 100% in a report. Now am wondering whether to ask them. Did you find out with your previous ones? I think if we did I wouldn't tell people so it would be a suprise for them but I could start picking up a few babygros etc, also think it might make it feel more 'real' after the rocky start... hmmmmmmm. Decisions! xx

Morning. Yes I did find out with both of mine, I'm not a very patient person at the best of times and can't wait for next week when I have my next scan to find out again.

Aside from all the practical reasons around only having to pick one name, being able to buy things it really helped me prepare mentally and this time will help prepare the older ones too. I honestly think it will be surprise enough to have a healthy baby at the end of this pregnancy!

How does your dp feel about it? xx

I think he is quite keen to know. I think we might as it would make it more real to me.. although I 've been feeling some movement for the past couple of weeks and have seen baby on a scan, I still don't actually believe it! I think it's having problems at the beginning has made me be a bit reluctant to get excited, but I am getting there and think maybe knowing its a boy/girl will help?! Hope your scan goes really well and they can tell you the sex! Mine is not until 22 weeks as back to specilaists at georges just for one final check on heart etc. xx

I think it does help to get to grips with it especially for us who have spent a lot of time trying not to get too used to it if you see what I mean. Even if it's just so you can start referring to it as a he/she rather than an it though that might blow your cover if you're not planning on telling anyone else.

If nothing else I'm intrigued to know what you're having (nosey and impatient!) xx
