Evening ladies.
This is a nice shiney new thread.
Well I'm at the in laws but I've been I bed all evening as I am really rather unwell. BFP due on Wednesday but I doubt it as I've been spotting all day now.
At least it's not shag week, there would be no chance.

BelissimaLol Sun 23-Dec-12 23:39:57

Hey bunny
Can you update my details pls as I'm on phone?
I'm Lolcbcb but now BelissimaLol
Now almost 8 weeks pregnant. Scan on 22nd jan and panicking already!
Thanks for starting new Fred grin

Please god make this be the last thread I join.

Been reading the infertility boards and about IVF. Scaring myself sad!

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Sun 23-Dec-12 23:52:44

twinkle I sincerely hope so too, that you get your BFP on this thread.

twinklestar2 Sun 23-Dec-12 23:57:50

Thanks zombie. I really need 2013 to be my year after 2011 and 2012 weren't.

Rache1S Mon 24-Dec-12 00:06:26

Evenin' all, hope you are all well?

Vivienne, you are hilarious! And I am very pleased to see you are also Northern like me as I have been outnumbered by Southerners until now. Well, we are still outnumbered but it helps!

Hazle I have a MW appointment on 14th January, which I think is just to test urine and a general chat about how things are going, and then I have the 20 week scan on 11th February. I am also tempted to pay for a gender scan at 16 weeks but DH says I am being ridiculous and we should just wait.

HazleNutt Mon 24-Dec-12 06:59:16

a tip to pregnant ladies - if your normal bras don't fit any more, borrowing one that's just bigger and doesn't fit properly either from a friend or mum is not an answer. I did that yesterday and ended up with a massive back ache - as I didn't do anything else differently, I can only deduct it must have been the bra.

Hm, an extra scan, you say Rach. I think I'll want to do that too - holidays on 9th of Feb and would be good to see that everything is still ok before that. I have doctors appointments every month but as said, I don't think I'll get a scan every time as well.

janey1234 Mon 24-Dec-12 09:08:48

Everyone loves and extra scan smile

Just popping in to say good luck to quod - scan day! I've just had my bloods taken and am waiting for mine at midday. Shitting it. And feeling slightly delirious after no sleep on plane and barely any sleep the night before. Left hotel 26 hours ago and just want my bed - too old for these shenanigans!

MotherOfCleo Mon 24-Dec-12 09:30:56

hello ladies grin
I have on odd symptom, doesnt exactly sound pregnancy related and sorry for tmi but im horny like all the time at the mo...bit random as its way past OV....guess my OH is just lucky lol. grin
Happy Christmas Eve everyone, hope everyone has a fab healthy Christmas with lots of BFPs! wink

Rache1S Mon 24-Dec-12 09:36:10

Hazle I wish my normal bras didn't fit! I was starting to get worried that BF would be out for me as my boobs haven't grown at all, but I had a chat with SIL yesterday and she told me hers didn't grow any bigger both times but she has still successfully BF 2 babies so I feel a bit better now.

I think the cost of a private scan is money well spent for peace of mind, especially if you're going away, and I think most places will tell you the sex after 16 weeks. I aren't going anywhere but I just really want to know the gender and it's only £79. DH thinks it is a waste of money when we are low risk and problem free (touch wood) but is going on a snowboarding holiday mid January so I might just have one while he is gone. <evil cackle>

viviennewestwould Mon 24-Dec-12 10:10:34

Janey and Quod, wishing you much luck at your scans.

I had a lovely hike in temp this morning just to confirm I ov'd yesterday. I feel so triumphant knowing I have four days' worth of sperm up there and we managed to DTD as I was ovulating, too! They do say, however, that sperm needs a good ten hours of being in situ before the egg is released. Any opinions? I so want yesterday's semen to count especially as it caused me so much discomfort as it was leaking out

HazleNutt Mon 24-Dec-12 10:22:53

janey and Qoud, we want to hear EVERYTHING and ASAP!

Rach as far as I've heard, your SIL is quite right, boob size and/or increase has nothing to do with breastfeeding success. I'm dreading any future increase, I'll have to shop in camping shops and sew a couple of tents together if it keeps going like this.

vivienne it certainly sounds like should have enough boys waiting there!

Preparing Christmas dinner here - we traditionally have it on Christmas Eve and not day, i.e tonight. PILs and SILs with families will come over and we have a card with the scan pic ready - I'll let you know what the reactions were.

viviennewestwould Mon 24-Dec-12 10:24:45

Oh, Hazle, what a smashing idea! I'm bloody well excited for you now!

janey1234 Mon 24-Dec-12 10:31:47

If all is well today the scan pic will be bright out later too. Great minds hazle!

Can't imagine it though, have the fear. An hour and a half to go. We're you this ridiculous hazle? I think having found out I'd had a mmc at 12 weeks last time is making me marginally more hysterical cautious than I'd be otherwise...

happylass Mon 24-Dec-12 10:32:02

Thinking of you janey and Quod. How lovely Hazle!! Exciting times all round grin

HazleNutt Mon 24-Dec-12 10:45:41

janey absolutely, I was preparing myself for the sonographer to say "oh, sorry, but..". Only normal I guess.

Rache1S Mon 24-Dec-12 11:04:53

Hazle how bizarre that we can be at such opposite ends of the boobage scale and still be classed as normal. This pregnancy malarkey is weird!

Good luck with your scans Janey and Quod! Seeing your little ones and getting your pictures will be such a lovely Christmas Eve treat grin

Vivienne if you've been bonking that much no wonder it's leaking out! Is it coming out of your ears as well? grin Sound like there was an army ready and waiting to ambush the egg!

ChristmAquarius1 Mon 24-Dec-12 11:06:34

Hello and Xmas greetings all! first bit of Internet access and /or spare time I've had for a while. Currently trying to avoid flooding in the south west. All those poor families whose homes are ruined- it's terrible- hope none of you are affected.

Winkle I hope this is your last thread too!

ChristmAquarius1 Mon 24-Dec-12 11:18:39
