Christmas babies part 2(1000 Posts)
Realised we need another thread as the other one reached 1000!
Glad to hear scans went well today.
Who else is waiting for their harmony results now? I am hoping to get them in the next few days! But I suspect Friday at the earliest and probably next week Monday! I had the bloods taken for it Thursday morning.
Checking in 😁
Glad to hear all the scans are going well ladies xx
Just checking in! No scan for me till 20th June! Feels like aaaaaaages away but so pleased to hear everyone's scans are going well!
How's everyone's symptoms going? The sore boobs are back! And I can only eat much smaller meals before I feel sick! Little and often...
My sore boobs have never gone, car journey in DH car is a killer his car is such a solid ride.
I am also full very quickly I fill my plate then can't eat it 🙈.
OMG I can not believe it, but I received the email report for the Harmony test already! It arrived in my inbox shortly after I posted on here wondering when I would get them. I never thought I would get them this fast! Happy to report, all is well with baby. We opted to find out the sex of baby doing a gender reveal with the kids in a fun way, so they left that blank and they will send in the post the sex...which I will use to get a cake made.
Just checking in!
@Mamabear12 That's great news from your Harmony test and amazing it came so soon! When do you plan on doing the gender reveal?
RLI1105 I plan on doing it as fast as we can manage! Lol. I’m hoping for this Wednesday but that might be too ambitious. My dh leaves Thursday and doesn’t return until late Monday so next week Tuesday is most likely. Tomorrow 8am I’m going to call cake shops and clinic to see if the bakery can call them to find out boy or girl and then bake cake in time for Wednesday pick up (by 5pm the latest!). But not sure if clinic will be able to reveal over the phone to them. And not sure if the results will arrive in post tomorrow fast enough. All the stars must align to make it work for Wednesday and I’m hoping they do!
I have a feeling it’s a boy though, as everyone seems to think this. According to DM fortune teller who told her last year she will get another grandson in 2019. This same fortune teller also told her “one of your daughters is pregnant.” She was right. I was literally only a few days late when my mom told me what she said and asked if I thought my sister was pregnant lol. This was for the first grandchild before I was married and she just got married. I thought to myself, no it’s me!!! Lol. And according to my SIL tea leaves said boy as well 😀 I’m hoping for a girl, as I can relate to girls more and fun to dress them. But of course we are happy with either.
Had my scan today, all well but a week behind dates so baby was measuring slightly too small for the combined screening, so need to go back again next week.
Same thing happened with my last pregnancy, went a week back - so my cycles just be a bit weird.
Also means my due date is 22nd December now!
@Mamabear12 my harmony results arrived this morning too! Can't believe it, much earlier than I expected.
Everything is absolutely fine and I'm having a...GIRL!!! I genuinely would have been happy with either but now I'll have one of each which is lovely.
I'm sitting at my desk trying very hard not to cry (after a big old sob in the toilets!!)
Checking in. 12 week scan tomorrow!! Don't think I'll do the harmony test unless NHS screening says there's anything to worry about.
peasando congratulations!! Now I am kind of wishing I found out already! We will now have to wait until next week to find out. But it seems to me we are having a boy! I am impressed with how fast the harmony results have come back. They made it sound like Friday would be the earliest. But I guess they don't want us to get hopes up of fast results. I was so happy to get the nice surprise of early results. Girls are so much fun! So many lovely outfits and I am girly myself so love the doll stuff etc.
@Mamabear12 thank you and congratulations to you too, so happy your result were clear! I'm sure you are right about the boy, I was convinced this was a girl because my symptoms have been so different (and so much worse!) than with my son. Can't wait til you find out!
I can't bring myself to get rid of all our boy stuff though - this little girl is going to be wearing a lot of dinosaur clothes!! 🦕 🦖
Had my 10 week scan today, all perfect, dated me back to my dates so EDD now is Xmas Eve & not new years eve from last scan. Was so worried about this scan as had 3 chemicals before this sticky & had a bleed before last scan at 5 weeks. All perfectly healthy, good heartbeat & could see arm, leg face etc. Phew, I'm gonna start enjoying being pregnant now, & try worry less
Ahh congrats @starflake, lovely pictures!
Ok so I finally got a scan date for next Tuesday
But I’ll only be 11+5 then
Will that be a problem?
@Comps83 - shouldn't be if the baby is the right size for the screening. I went yesterday and turned out I was only 11w 1d and the baby was a mm off the minimum size for the combined screening so I need to go back.
With my last pregnancy, I thought I was about 12w 5d and for put back a week but I assume she must have been big enough as they still did the measurements!
I’m pretty confident with my dates after a private scan last Wednesday so I’ll just leave the appt as it is
2 more sleeps until my booking in appointment 🙈
Just now catching up on everything, really pleased to hear everyone's scans have been going well really makes me want the 24th to hurry up feel I am one of the last ones to have mine but to be fair my edd at the moment is 28th December.
Congrats peasando on the news of having a girl. Mamabear12 will be eager to hear what your baby is once you do your reveal.
Just checking in, hope everyone is doing well.
It's nice to have another Christmas baby thread, I wasn't sure if we were going to combine with the December thread.
@peasando and @Mamabear12 congrats on harmony results and @peasando a girl!! 💖💖
I really want to find out sex but my partner doesn't...
@starflake what a lovely, clear picture.
I have my 12 week scan 10th June, counting down the days. I'm sure there were a few of us with the same scan date.
Hope everyone is hanging in there x
I have my 12 week scan on the 11th June😊
