I've started the new thread - how exciting!!

I hope this thread will bring lots of BFPs, good scan results and healthy new arrivals.

HJBeans Tue 12-Mar-13 17:46:47

Blasted weather - so sorry you couldn't make your scan, that must be so frustrating! Can they reschedule quickly, I hope?

Jollyb Tue 12-Mar-13 12:03:15

Good work Mrs HP.

Bugger the snow haven't been able to make it to scan today which is so disappointing. Had to abandon car last night in side road several streets away as couldn't get up a hill in the ice.

beans I'm beginning to feel movements now . I've had squirms and dome definite kicks . Remember I've got a DD already though . When pregnant with her I wasn't convinced until 24 weeks so don't fret too much.

lcr great news on your screening result. I had a similar one with my daughter which was so reassuring - my result this time was 1:410 which I'm much less comfortable with, even though I'm still in the low risk category.

MrsHerculePoirot Tue 12-Mar-13 11:52:23

New thread here.

Hope that is OK. I need it to be Friday... So I can POAS!!!

HJBeans Tue 12-Mar-13 11:49:02

Welcome home, jolly, and good luck for your scan tomorrow. Mine is on Thursday, with midwife yesterday, so a heavy week for pg appts here, too. Completely relate to what you say about the anxiety coming in waves.

Fear tends to ramp up for me a few days after good news - I'm sure it's down to getting more attached and then feeling more vulnerable. Fingers crossed I'll have a lousy week next week after a good 20 week scan, then!

Are you feeling movements regularly yet? I'm not at all, but have had a few wee flutters which I think are my little one.

Congrats buzzy and dorita and LCR on good test results and congrats backward on your lovely wee girl! So much positive news all at once!

Keeping fingers crossed for you, mrsHP, and still thinking of you pixie.

LCR77 Mon 11-Mar-13 14:28:17

Yep you should def start the next thread MrsHP

So sorry pixie hope you're being looked after thanks

Got my NT screening results through the post on Friday and was quite shocked at how low risk they were considering my age (35) but incredibly relieved. 1 in 100,000 had to read and re-read but so chuffed. Getting ready for the next milestone and relieved to be starting my second trimester today.

Jollyb Mon 11-Mar-13 11:49:28

Hi all . Not sure what's happened but managed to lose two messages this morning! Think I may have sent someone a private message along the way.

Anyhow back from Australia in one piece - not sure about this snow business was hoping for spring.

redbird really fantastic news on your scan.
mrs Hp definitely think you should start the new thread - though there's every chance you may have your BFP by then. Fingers and toes crossed here.

buzzy I don't think the worrying ever stops. Mine comes in waves. I thought it was getting better but now I fret about movement (instead of knicker checking). My sister asked me about names this morning and I said I really didn't want to think that far ahead..

It's a busy hospital week for me 20 week scan tomorrow and consultant on Friday.

Pixie - hope you're ok

Dorita75 Sun 10-Mar-13 21:26:36

You should start the new thread Mrshp Think it was jolly who said it was lucky, worked for me!

Great news buzzy such a relief isn't it. We'd decided not to have tests either, it's just a bit of reassurance I suppose, even tho nothing is certain!

MrsHerculePoirot Sun 10-Mar-13 21:01:04

Great news buzzy!

We need to think about the next thread as we are on the last page now and I'd hate to lose the support!

dorita it is sort of five days now - well Friday AF is due... we shall see! I'd just like to apologise to everyone as my 2ww somehow seem like the longest in the world somehow...

buzzybeetop Sun 10-Mar-13 19:50:43

Great news redbird and what a relief to see that heartbeat notsoold!

Many, many congrats backward and looking forward to hearing good news from you soon too mumtum (I was similarly late buying anything before ds, was actually painting our bedroom and sleeping on the nursery floor at 37 weeks. Luckily he wasn't early!)

Great news Dorita got my result back yesterday and low risk too...phew! We don't get a quantative result in my area but don't care as long as it's low risk, had decided not to have diagnostic tests if under 1in 100 anyway. Still don't feel like making a big announcement so still only told family, my boss and a few friends as I see them, was like this last time though!

Dorita75 Sun 10-Mar-13 15:05:49

So 7 days to wait Mrshp fingers crossed for you!

If you go to GPs they'll prob send DP for a sperm test and do blood tests on you so good to both go!

MrsHerculePoirot Sat 09-Mar-13 12:14:35

Oooooooh mumtum - how exciting! Enjoy your shopping spree!

Thanks Dorita - only one week, seriously it feels like forever every time! GP appt on sat 23rd so DH will come with me too in case they want to do anything with him!

Yay redbird brilliant news, that's made my day! Have fun telling everyone, we told everyone in work this week and Facebook, was so lovely to get hugs and congrats comments!
How far into the 2ww are you Mrshp hang on in there. Hopefully your doc visits will be like mine and you'll find yourself pg before you get blood results! Fingers crossed for you x

MrsHerculePoirot Fri 08-Mar-13 13:36:23

Redbird - I am so, so pleased for you! Congratulations. Enjoying sharing your happy, happy news with everyone!

Yet again, I have no idea how 2 weeks can go soooooooo sloooooooowly.

I have booked a GP appointment for 23rd march, it is a sat so DH going to come with me and we shall see what they say.

Dorita great news on the result.

Pixie still thinking of you. Hope you are taking care/being taken care of. Big hugs again.

Redbird12 Fri 08-Mar-13 13:31:04

Hi all, have been away for a few days so just catching up on all the news.

backward congratulations on the birth of Esther. Lovely name, hope you are both doing well.

notsoold so pleased to hear that your scan went well but unfortunately, I don't think the anxiety ever goes away. I am finding it a bit better after each scan though.

pixie so sorry to hear your news and hope the scan has gone ok. Take your time and take care of yourself and yes, they should now do some blood and chromosome tests to establish if there is any identifiable cause. I had mine done at the GP's last year but then the blood samples were sent away to Oxford so it took a few weeks to get any results (in my case everything came back normal which on one hand was a relief but on the other still did not give me any answers). I think I had the tests about 6 weeks after my last MMC.

I had my 12 week scan this morning and other than the baby not wanting to lie in the right position for the nuchal measurements, everything was fine. I was told to go to the cafe and drink something full of sugar and caffeine to get the baby to move which worked and he/she was then kicking away. Measured at 12+4 so new due date now 16th Sept. We are finally going to tell people this weekend!

notsoold Thu 07-Mar-13 22:47:39

Excellent news, Dorita!!!

The questions of worrying and stressing is a hard one. I still worry and stress somewhat, about my dd that will be 19 years old in September !!!!

backwardpossom Thu 07-Mar-13 19:03:20

Great news Dorita and notsoold. Very sorry pixie, thinking of you x

Dorita75 Thu 07-Mar-13 16:53:57

Good news notsoold lovely to hear. You're right, I don't think you ever stop worrying!!!

Had my down syndrome result today, low risk at 1 in 770 so happy with that.

notsoold Thu 07-Mar-13 16:43:43

Thanks gals!!!! Does one ever relaxes though??? ;)

MrsHerculePoirot Thu 07-Mar-13 16:18:16
