Just had to say that time is going so so slow to get to that 12 week mark!! I'm currently 7 weeks so still have another 5 to go and it just feels like forever. Not helped by the hungry sickness I felt last week has gradually faded so other than slightly sore boobs I feel pretty normal which is obviously worrying me more.

I know what you mean, I found out when I was 5 weeks and now just over 10, not got my scan until the end of the month when I'll be a lot 13 weeks. It seems to be taking forever to get there and I can't wait to see my baby. I did have an early scan about 8 weeks but couldn't see much then, looked more like a blob on the screen. Although we did see the heartbeat which reassured me. I don't think the all day nausea or tiredness like I've never known have helped and are probably making time drag.
I've read though that some people's symptoms do ease off and if you have no bleeding or any symptoms like that fingers crossed everything should be fine. I have had days for the last couple of weeks where I've felt better and then some bad days again so I guess they can come and go. x

Yeah, we found out at 3+5 so it seems like a long time already. We are going to have a scan next week at 8+3 just for some reassurance before telling immediate family although I know we won't see a lot, will be nice if we hear a heartbeat (fingers crossed).

Yes I've read about symptoms coming and going so trying not to read to much into it.

I feel your pain, I found out at 3+3 and am only 6+4 now, time is dragging!

I completely empathise, those first few weeks, before the medical profession get involved, and when you usually haven't told many people drag like nothing I've ever known before.

The time between 5 weeks (when I found out) and 10 weeks when we had the booking in appointment lasted for about 75 years. And then again the three weeks between booking in and the dating scan.

If it's any consolation, I'm now 23 weeks and it seems to be speeding up (almost scarily so). I have heard that the final 4 weeks also last a lifetime. Booo!
