marking place - congrats to all who have had happy scans already and good luck for those with the scans coming up this week! I lost track of who was doing what when moving between threads....

Marking place on the shiny new thread grin

Definitely feeling little nudges from my bub now! It's so reassuring. Am metalling tonight though as we're finally having a new kitchen done (replacing the falling-to-bits one that dates from 1978, I kid you not!) and today they installed the new sink - I didn't realise but whatever they used to fix it in is obviously full of solvents and the whole house stinks. That can't be good for baby...or poor DS for that matter sad Will escape out of the house with him tomorrow but nothing we can do about the fumes tonight.

Hello everyone! Marking my place and got everything crossed for lots of BFPs and bouncing babies!

BraveLilBear Wed 07-Nov-12 10:03:43

Hey ladies! <waves enthusiastically>

Thanks for starting new thread Jolly - fx it brings some special luck for you smile

Ready and waiting for the happy news to arrive... I'm waiting not at all patiently to POAS on the 18th.

Who's scanning/POAS next? Good luck!

wilderumpus Wed 07-Nov-12 11:36:00

oooh new thread, thanks jolly smile

I have my scan tomorrow.... was looking forward to it but had a teeny smidge of pink blood the other night and it has put me back in my skeptical box again. boo to that. Am 12 weeks something - am sure they will change the date tomorrow tho (well, that would be the least worst outcome!)

BUT we have lovely 2ww-ers! ah, the excitement!

Jollyb Wed 07-Nov-12 17:40:46

brave I'll be testing around then too.

Good luck for tomorrow wilde Hoping the spotting has settled - remember it's very very common.

BraveLilBear Wed 07-Nov-12 17:46:17

Yay - someone to hold hands with Jolly Are you as impatient as me? Literally don't know how time has forgotten to move hmm

Good luck for tomorrow Wilde fingers crossed everything will be back to boring old normal. And hey, changing due dates is at least a good distraction (if you like maths and geekiness as much as I do, anyway lol)

Thinking of you!

Jollyb Wed 07-Nov-12 18:59:42

I am v impatient Brave but after 2 very early miscarriages am trying to be good and hold out until day AF due. My ideal scenario would be to do a clearblue digi and get 2-3 weeks (instead of the crappy 1-2 weeks I struggled to get past last time).

I have a stock of Internet cheapies plus FRERs so bet I cave in before then! Any symptoms yetwink

MrsHerculePoirot Wed 07-Nov-12 19:51:33

Hi everyone. Good luck for tomorrow Wilde. I saw a very pregnant woman at the sandwich shop today and felt a bit sad/upset that it wasn't me yet. I haven't really been too worried about other people being pregnant, even if it does seem that everyone else in the world is getting pregnant all the time. However today I did have that feeling. I wonder if it is partly because it was almost a year ago that I got pregnant, having tried for a year before that, or if it is because DH is away this week (which really should be THE week for dtd) and so I know there isn't really any 2ww this month. I know that I am very lucky in that I already have DD, but if she is going to be the only one I think I can be happy with that, but I'd just like to know so that I can just get on with my life. Much as I keep saying, I'll just get on with it I don't all the time there is a chance if that makes sense...

Sorry for the self-pitying ramble. I'll be fine tomorrow no doubt!

lotsofcheese Wed 07-Nov-12 20:11:14

I've got my 12 week scan tomorrow too. Having a hormonal day & don't even know how I feel about it.

In the last few days I've admitted to myself how scared I am about this pregnancy (had severe, early PE in 1st pregnancy - DS & I almost died & he was in NICU for 3 months). There is a reasonable possibility it could happen again this time.

I suppose reality is hitting & I'm shitting myself.

ImAbbs Wed 07-Nov-12 20:27:45

Marking my place. What a nice place to share experiences.

lurcherlover Wed 07-Nov-12 21:21:53

Good luck to wilde and cheese for tomorrow - looking forward to hearing two positive scan stories. cheese, does having had PE once mean it is more likely to recur? Is there anything they can do to prevent it? It must be very worrying for you.

Hoping time goes quickly for those on the 2ww....I am on a 3ww myself as my 20wk scan is in three weeks. Absolutely dreading it, but at the same time looking forward to it as a key milestone to get through.

Nearly Friday everyone smile

Dorita75 Wed 07-Nov-12 21:34:19

Feels like we're always waiting for something...POAS, scans, good luck to everyone and especially wilde and cheese with your scans tomorrow and lurcher for your 3ww

Mrshp you're allowed to feel down and come on here brew you never know when something's going to hit. I was fine for what would have been my due date, AF came the next day, also fine, then the following day had to leave work early as I couldn't stop crying! You just have to go with the ups and downs don't you really? and try and remember it's okay to feel that way. You're probably affected by this week's lack of action but don't worry, you'll be back in the saddle next month and the musketeers will go on again!

littlebear I'm like jollyb now, trying not to POAS until AF is a day late, just because I can still have hope until then whereas an early negative a few days before ends the hope for that month...I'm due some time next week I think (had 29 and a 19 day cycle last 2 months so who knows!) so will join the hold handing please smile

Jollyb Wed 07-Nov-12 21:39:58

Yes good luck to the 'scannees'!

MrsHP it's totally normal to have days/weeks like that. 10 days ago when I found out a close friend was pregnant I felt awful. I lay in bed and wailed. I think my feelings were intensified because it coincided with an anniversary (12 months TTC).

I'm now feeling much more positive about TTC again. I even managed to have dinner with this pregnant friend yesterday and was genuinely excited for her.

Hope you feel better soon and you aren't missing your DH too much.

As an aside - watching a reality show about an STD clinic. Why on earth would you agree to be on this?!!

oo00PIXIE00oo Wed 07-Nov-12 21:40:21

Big hugs MrsH - I had a crying day on Sunday can down with the flu and found out friend is due a couple of days before my edd for the 2nd MMC x

I'm in the 2ww AF due 13th

Leaves to carry on with the ironing - sharing the delights of the new mint leaf and chocolate ice cream from Haagen Dazs smile

Jollyb Wed 07-Nov-12 21:43:09

dorita - crossed post with you. Hello and hope you're feeling perky.

Jollyb Wed 07-Nov-12 21:47:32

Goodness I keep missing posts and now feel very rude. lurcher We'll be here to get you through the next 3 weeks. won't be long til you'll be having lots of lovely kicks and so don't need to rely on scans for reassurance.

pixie fingers crossed for you too x

lurcherlover Wed 07-Nov-12 22:03:05

Thanks jolly. I have been feeling little kicks intermittently for about a week now, which surprised me - with DS I didn't feel anything until 19 weeks, and I know they say you feel second babies sooner but I was expecting it to be around the 17-week mark, but I definitely felt something at 15+6 and have had lots since. It's fantastic, and it's obviously such a relief to know that bubs is alive in there - but I won't relax until I know the anomaly scan is done and that there are no visible health problems, at this stage anyway.

Really thinking of you and all the others on the 2ww - Dorita, you're so right, we're always waiting for something. And I don't know what's worse really - waiting to POAS, waiting for scans, waiting for kicks, waiting for the get over one hurdle, and think "by the time X has happened I'll be able to relax", and then the next hurdle looms and of course you can't.

Jolly totally agree about that STD show! How desperate do you have to be to go on TV??

BraveLilBear Thu 08-Nov-12 07:37:07

Lol all this waiting. No wonder mothers have the patience of a saint in films, anyway

Good luck wilde and cheese for today, and we're all in for your 3ww lurcher

Feel free to rant MrsHP, so many of us know that feeling even if it's not today.

As for 2ww... Like jolly and dorita I'm a resolute ' wait til after AF due kinda gal, too'... Being a stubborn taurus sometimes has it's upside! I, too, would love a 2-3 week rather than the 1-2 s I got last time.

Hoping I'll get distracted by some other BFPs between now and the 18th grin

cogitosum Thu 08-Nov-12 07:41:57

Hello I hope it's ok to join. I had mmc at 9 weeks in June. I got a bfp today but really scared as I drank at the weekend after getting a bfn (just started a thread about it)
