I thought she'd posted but it was just you Moomin grin

Sorry to disappoint. grin

Ladies, so sorry for lack of post yesterday. By the time I got home in the evening we had no power as some idiot had cut a main power cable in the street so we were in darkness and sans-internet until 2am !

Anyway - all is well. Healthy baby wriggling away. Placenta is at the back but baby is breech which explains why I'm only feeling kicks really low down. Consultant could not get baby to move into correct potision for one of the spine shots so have to go back next week. She said the spine looked fine she just needed to check from another angle so nothing to worry about, just a chance for an extra look at baby grin.
Told DS last night so he is over the moon - skipped into nursery with a copy of the scan pic as proud as punch grin
I'm feeling relieved but still apprehensive, I'm hoping as time ticks by I lose this negativity as I really just want to enjoy it !

How is everyone doing ?

PickledMoomin Tue 23-Jul-13 11:30:18

Wooohooooo lady. You'll feel better when you start getting regular movement. Lovely that you'll get another look at baby next week.
You tempted to find out the sex?

BuddhaBelly Tue 23-Jul-13 12:46:29

Hurray. You had us worried grin grin so pleased all was well. And an extra scan, lucky you smile

BuddhaBelly Sat 27-Jul-13 15:08:38

So have you adjusted to being home now? Good holiday? looked it from the pictures smile

I'm sat here wondering how and why my spd is back confused last couple of days it's been horrendous. Very odd hmm

PickledMoomin Sat 27-Jul-13 23:26:33

Not really. It was so lovely. None of us wanted to leave. Just what we needed.

Have you been busy (wink)? Sure that will aggravate the spd

BuddhaBelly Mon 29-Jul-13 19:13:55

I know I'm just setting myself up for an epic fail but this is the first time in months that I've actually considered I might be pg <sigh> I'm sure it will go wrong but spd is better than it was bit still getting twinges (could be hormones, not uncommon this early) my (.)(.) are incredibly ouchy. Nauseous on a number of occasions. Probably all adds up to a big fat zilch but had to put it out there as its going around and around in my head confused

gomurray Mon 29-Jul-13 21:50:33

oooh Buddha it all sounds very promising missus - I cannot tell you how much I want it to be the case that you are indeed growing a tiny bean... Have you been back to acupuncture ? Exciting prospect ... when do you think you ov'd ? When would AF be due (IF she were to come) ? Everything crossed my lovely lady.

Scan tomorrow - taking DS - sooo hope we don't regret it like last time confused. It is not so much that we want to take him but it would be a PITA to leave him at nursery, drive to hospital (which is where we live) then all the way back to nursery to get him. So it is more a case of practicalities. He seems quite excited by the prospect though smile. Moomin, no we won't be finding out the sex. You are not allowed to ask here but I guess if I wanted ot know I'd go for a private scan but I really want another surprise ! All part of the fun IMO grin

BuddhaBelly Mon 29-Jul-13 22:17:01

Good luck for tomorrow, how lovely for E to see his baby brother/sister, I'm sure you won't regret it, it will be a memory maker for you all smile
Forgot to add bloated and sore to my list of fake symptoms wink AF is due Saturday but if it comes early like the last two cycles then its Wednesday. I'm cd23 today

PickledMoomin Mon 29-Jul-13 22:31:14

Good luck to you both.

I keep getting hot flushes. blush
Hopefully all to do with this clammy weather and not early menopause! Two 50 year old females lol at my flush today. It's physically obvious.

PickledMoomin Tue 30-Jul-13 18:23:30

How was today Murray?

gomurray Tue 30-Jul-13 22:11:49

Oooh Buddha I am getting so excited for you, trying to stay calm though xx

Scan went brilliantly - so much better than last week as the sonographer was lovely and chatted away describing what she was doing and told DS that baby was waving at him which delighted him. She also gave us 9 pics (only supposed to give 1) and gave DS his own special pic with a wee folder grin. Such a lovely experience.

Moomin - WTF with the hot flushes confused

BuddhaBelly Wed 31-Jul-13 06:20:24

Murray Told you it would be a memory maker experience grin So chuffed it all went well, absolutely brilliant grin
Moomin Bit young for flushes?

Well not so excited anymore, spd seems to have disappeared as quickly as it came and (.)(.) not as sore. Still feeling nauseous first thing but I bet that's just in my head hmm
E is misbehaving hugely at the moment at home and nursery, we seem to have gone backwards and we're back to spitting again. Yesterday morning though he did say I don't want to be left behind when everyone else goes to school, I want to go to school. So myself and nursery think he's reacting to the changes ahead hmm Poor guy just doesn't understand why he can't go with his friends hmm
