Hello all. Popping over from the metalling thread and marking my place if that's ok? I'm at 6w6 after two early mcs (5-6 weeks) in March and June.

Thanks for the lovely warm welcomes gemdrop, alpha,and mrsr. Encouraged me to stop lurking and say hello.

good morning all, only 1 day to wait for a scan.

i am presuming this is a good sign but should i have a definate bump already at 10/11 weeks?

im wearing a hoody this morning and can definatly see a bump through it.proper round and hard. I am allowing myself to get slightly excited now.

wishing good things for everyone.will update tomorrow.

AlphaBeta82 Tue 11-Dec-12 08:54:35

hi yellow I had a definate bump at 10/11 and look properly pregnant (IYKWIM!) now at 16 weeks - I am sure I didn't show this much, this early with DS though!
Good luck for tomorrow. smile

yellowsnownoteatwillyou Tue 11-Dec-12 09:02:46

thanks Alpha, keep making Dh pat it, to confirm its not in my head.

However the smell coming from the box of new pans i just unpacked is making me want to be sick, this may even top the bag of flavoured coffee i bought for a present yesterday at a xmas market that is currently in the car as the smell is over powering. Dh had his face in the bag making yum noises.

bleugh, never had these smell things last time, i am feeling positive.:D

I showed a lot earlier with this baby, I think our stomach muscles are all shot to pieces after at least one previous pregnancy.

My arm is still sore - it's not been really painful, just achy. The swelling and redness are starting to go down. My friend's baby girl had her first lot of jags during the week and I have a huge amount of sympathy for her. grin

Smell is a good sign of rising hormone levels believe. Best of luck! After having 3 consecutive early scans where I was told nothing was there (I did suspect/ know each time as symptoms had all disappeared and/or heavy bleeding) it is the most wonderful feeling when you get that positive scan! I wouldn't look at the screen until DH was telling me it was ok, our baby was kicking away happily! x

yellowsnownoteatwillyou Tue 11-Dec-12 10:27:58

DH and I have agreed to not look until whoever is doing it says something good,

i am going to tell them this when we go in.

Is it like tv that you actually get to hear a heartbeat or just see it, if im 10/11 weeks?

AlphaBeta2012 Tue 11-Dec-12 11:02:59

they can point out the HB to you, we just saw it. To be honest at my first scan (7 weeks) I couldn't see anything, they kept pointing and saying there is the HB and I just thought 'well I have to trust you!' By 10 weeks I could see what I describe as a kidney bean with legs! Then was amazed at the 12 week scan (even though we've a Dc already!) that it was actually a little baby kicking away! I think I thought it'd still be a kidney bean thing and couldn't believe the growth!

Mrsd77 Tue 11-Dec-12 12:59:22

Hello all. Can I join you? You seem a lovely bunch!
Am nearly 6 weeks pregnant with dc2. Fourth pregnancy with the last diagnosed as a partial molar pregnancy at 12 week scan in May.
Just had a scan this morning and seen a bean measuring six weeks with a good heart beat. You could have knocked me down with a feather! Hcg levels have increased well and I'm allowing myself a couple of hours chill! I honestly thought it was game over after some blledibg over the weekend. They saw some bleeding near the sack but dr was totally unconcerned (I think in a good way!)

So, that's me! Fx I'm around for a little while longer yet! smile

Hello hj and mrs welcome aboard! Great to see a string of positive posts, long may it continue!

Good luck for Tom yellow, hb should be clear, and if they had a Doppler handy, audible too (although don't think sonographers normally do). I showed right away with this pg and was really struggling with non maternity clothes at less than 12 weeks but was determined not to go into maternity clothes before I knew all was well. People now tell me it seems like I've been pg forever cos it's been so obvious for so long. Not for much longer now though - just one more week to go!

MrsReiver Tue 11-Dec-12 14:04:09

Yellow, the hb should be visible yes, a little flickering patch that will be the best thing you've ever seen grin good luck!

FoofFighter Tue 11-Dec-12 14:08:38

Constipation confused ow. That be all.

MrsReiver Tue 11-Dec-12 14:10:43

Lactulose. Minging. But it works.

yellowsnownoteatwillyou Tue 11-Dec-12 14:13:20

thanks everyone, just needed to know what to expect since it all went wrong before.

congrats Mrsd

Mrsd77 Tue 11-Dec-12 15:00:57

Thanks yellow. My 12 week scan with DS (now 3.5) was such a relief after mmc first time round. It really does blow your mind when it looks as it should! Fx!

StateofConfusion Tue 11-Dec-12 15:17:01

Welcome mrs and hj I dip in and out of the metallers thread, I was there a lot in the early days, those ladies really know there stuff!

I'm more pregnant this time than before, a definate pregnant shape by 16wks --despite never loosing the baby weight from elder 2-- now at 38+3 I'm so pregnant grin

WL just a week to go!!!!! One week one day for me! How scary/exciting is that!

My shopping trip didn't go to plan I'm too pregnant and grumpy so I gave up and headed to wetherspoons for lunch!

WLmum Tue 11-Dec-12 17:58:02

Sounds like a better plan state. So unlike me but I didn't leave the house yesterday, and not today until school pick up - normally that would drive me crazy but I'm so done in I think I could have stayed put for a few more days!

WLmum Tue 11-Dec-12 18:03:42

Ouch foof - I second lactulose but also second the yuk! Could try lots of fruit/juice

I'm feeling v emotional at the moment - hormones ramping up for last surge plus extreme knackeredness I guess. Dd1s Carol concert is 18/19th - my c sec is 18th :-( I'm also currently sitting out her first session at rainbows - bless her shy little heart. She was a bit overwhelmed to start with but is being brave and trying to join in.

Countmyblessings Tue 11-Dec-12 18:14:43

Ahhhh welcome newbies - I know how very worried you can be at the early stages! Most times when you have a scan you def can see a strong heartbeat and you then breath!!! Although sometimes that still not enough reassurance to those who have had to deal with sorry of a loss after good news from early scans!!!
But it's so great to hear such great stories of wonderful and healthy pregnancies and babies being born to offer hope and hand holding to others who find this thread!!!
I def feel the more dc you have the earlier your belly grows!
26 weeks and feel huge already!
Had to buy mat wear as I felt I wasn't excited about being pregnant which wasn't good!!! Def after 20 weeks I started believing I may just bring a baby home in March!
Any advice and hand holding we can offer to help ease the early concerns just holla!!!
I constantly kept saying each day " today I'm pregnant so smile"

Countmyblessings Tue 11-Dec-12 18:16:23

Thank God for Internet shopping facing the shops right now is a no no!

FoofFighter Tue 11-Dec-12 19:11:57

Actually don't think it's constipation now although things are a bit slow moving! You know that feeling you get when your bladder is fit to burst? it's more that kind of a thing although am emptying regularly. Hope that doesn't mean impending infection :/

CMB - I for one will definitely be hollering don't worry!

I need to pluck up courage to ring the EPU. Maybe next week...? Still early days yet, only 5 weeks yesterday by my dates.

StateofConfusion Tue 11-Dec-12 19:22:12

wl I didn't get dressed or leave the house yesterday in preperation for today, and I slept in the car on the way home to fetch ds, then the way to my aunts for tea, and again on the way home ha!

foof I'd ring whenever you feel ready, for me contacting midwife/epu was a huge step but if you want an early scan about 7wks you need to get in there. X

I'm blooming exhausted I'm not leaving the sofa for some time.

elliejjtiny Tue 11-Dec-12 19:34:23

Welcome to all the newbies.

(((hugs))) to those with anniversaries coming up or just gone. DD's EDD anniversary is on 16th (can't believe she would have been 7) and DS4's scan and erpc anniversaries are on 20th and 23rd.

Mrsd77 Tue 11-Dec-12 20:01:44

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.

My optimism has now been slightly tarnished by a little more blood! Rational me says it's the bleed they saw on the scan just passing through. Stupid me is thinking I've jinxed it by relaxing about it all since scan this morning! Aargh!

Thinking that as I've been throwing up most of the day I should defo be staying positive. Well, trying to...
