So sorry Kate for your loss.

Good luck everyone having scans! I am just plodding along waiting now. We have told everyone now, so at least I don't have to hide the bump and lie anymore! Quite a relief!

Our news is out of the bag too, after getting our scan results on Friday and all being good.  Good luck to all the scans happenning this week.  If you're like me you'll start sobbing the minute you see bubs and hear the heartbeat - if they don't offer then ask if you can hear it original.gif  It's amazing!

So the word is slowly getting around my workplace today.  I'm sure everyone is far more interested in "oooh how long will she take off - who will do her job while she's away" then my actual pregnancy, lol.  The lady I sit next too was like "I KNEW IT!"  lol.  She's been telling me since week 1 "I reckon your pregnant" and I kept making jokes and lying my way out of it, bahahaha.

I think the only vegetable I ate all weekend was cucumber.  Seriously I've veen living on toast and pasta.  last night for dinner I had 1/2 a baguette - first with olive oil and balsamic and then with cucumber slices on it, then some just with butter.... then a Mars Bar Ice Cream.  OMG who invented those? Just evil.  So today I'm trying to be good and bought a salad for lunch.... but I think I forgot to have breakfast I realised before, ha!  Even with all the carb loading.... I've lost another 700g so I'm very happy I can report to the hospital tomorrow for my first visit and let them know I've lost about 5kg so far original.gif

Work sux.  At least I can get on this forum.... because most other things are blocked  aannoyed.gif  Can't wait for end of month rush to be over.

Kate and Lucky2013, I felt like crying when I read your sad news! Great big hugs to you both. No more sad news for our DIG please!!! I feel like I have just jinxed myself... Totally freaking out about my scan on Friday, and like quite a few others it's my first one and I am totally convinced there will be nothing in there. sad.gif
I was going to try and respond to other posts, but now it's a new thread, I can't remember any of the other posts from before..
Feeling a bit like I want a cry myself. Earlier this year I put in for voluntary redundancy at work and just got the email over lunch time that I won't get one. At least I can have 12 months maternity leave I guess...

Thanks for all the support  biggrin.gif
What an emotional roller coaster that was! From a nervous wreck to a happy blubbering mess hahaha

Baby was bouncing around the whole time and waving, we were so happy to see that there was a baby in there!  One of my biggest fears was that it was something all in my head.

Notes from the scan: 11 weeks and 2 days (CRL = 4.7cm).  EDD is 18/5/13.  HR = 161bpm.  No complications.
The nuchal translucency measures 1.4mm. A combined risk assessment will be
issued in due course.

I also got a blood test to match the results but so far, Im not a high risk. Also checking the Chicken Pox but was told not to worry (phew!!!!!)
Annoyed with the pathologist. I have a needle phobia and so asked her to use a baby needle and her response was "well you shouldnt have fallen pregnant then".
I didnt trust her, and my instinct was right. She took 2 goes to get blood and wasnt gentle.
If I need to get more tests, I will go to my doctor who takes good care of me.

It was very expensive, what has everyone else paid/expecting to pay?
I paid $350 for the scan and $120 for the blood test.

I will post a picture when they come through. The place I went to only puts them up on the internet so I have to wait for them to put them up original.gif





#14 Seza

Posted 29 October 2012 - 03:46 PM

nrawson- I've been told my scan is $190 and the bloods were bulk billed to Medicare...
so i think you got a bad deal there!

#15 Leefa

Posted 29 October 2012 - 04:27 PM

Nrwason - I can't believe she said that to you! Needle phobia is totally relevent to falling pregnant, as if they impact upon each other! I had the husband man with me when I had to get bloods taken, and the lady was so gentle and nice. I can do tattoos and piercings, but don't be taking things outta me or injecting me with stuff. Freaks me out big time.

I've been quoted $240 for my scan, with a possible $59 back from medicare, but my GP has written bulk bill on the referral(and their referral forms says they BB) and the pathologist was BB'd too. My GP is the only one in the centre he is in the BBs. I am sooooo lucky!

#16 tazcan

Posted 29 October 2012 - 04:39 PM

Congrats on all the 12 week scans - I'm loving seeing the pics posted, I loved the 3D one!

My scan is next week at one day shy of 13 wks. They haven't contacted me about the blood test so I might just wait and see what they say on the day - I don't particularly care about the blood test. I will only be $40 out of pocket for the NT scan since I'm doing shared care with my gp and apparently I get charged a lower rate for some reason -(compared to if I was going either through a public or private hospital).

I have just had the most dreadful day with my toddler completely out of sorts - tantrum after tantrum. When he finally went down for his nap I actually had a cry and I think I must have had red eyes at school pick up time because a few people asked me if I was okay. Oh well, I know I will be feeling much better and more energetic once I reach about 14 weeks. I feel so pathetic that a toddler can reduce me to tears - completely ridiculous!

#17 newseason

Posted 29 October 2012 - 05:28 PM

nrawson i just had my blood test this afternoon (feel like i'll run out of blood soon with all these tests! That was number 4!) and that was bulk billed. My scan is on Wednesday so i'll find out then how expensive that is (expecting it to be a bit pricey- but totally worth the peace of mind!)

as for me- at work today an email was sent saying that someone has German measles. Whooping cough, chicken pox and influenza have also been reported in the past month.  unsure.gif

My boss was a bit cute and 'subtly' asked me if i read the email and if everything would be ok? (I spoke to my OB and he wasn't stressed at all). Another staff member sitting next to me just smiled at me knowingly when he left.

I said, 'so was that obvious'. She said, 'congrats!'. And then went on to say that she and a couple of others and been sharing their suspicions about me. Apparantely conversations have been going a bit like this- 'she's been really tired lately.... is she ok.... i saw her eat crackers the other day...'
Haha i'm not at all suprised! I feel like i have 'im pregnant' written on my face.

I'm nervous for my scan on Wednesday but very much looking forward to it. Praying hard all will come back well and then i can be done with all this secret keeping  biggrin.gif

#18 sarkazm76

Posted 29 October 2012 - 05:29 PM

My blood test was bulk billed - my GP actually pointed out to me on the pathology request to sign this section to have it BB - my previous GP did NOT point this out to me and after my first blood test I got a bill for like $250!!!  Got most of it back on Medicare, but still out of pocket.  So anyway - no charge for bloods..... for scan it was 159.50 and I got back 97.50 - but also keep in mind I am over the medicare threshhold for the year so am on max-rebate level.  So it cost me $62


Tazcan - our 20 month old has been quite feral lately.  He has all 4 canines coming so not sure if that is part of the reason.  He's cranky all the time - screams bloody murder if you want to do anything that he doesn't feel like doing (like EVERY nappy change).  It's so exhausting and we're trying to ride it out but it's hard. sad.gif


#19 MZER

Posted 29 October 2012 - 08:30 PM

Wow $350! Mine was 125 for the scan , Bloods i still haven't got my bill for bloods but i think i got told $120

Not much from me! Still exhausted here my dates have been changed so im officially in the second trimester now Im now due on the 5th of May one day after Df's birthday <3

#20 Maniacal_laugh

Posted 29 October 2012 - 08:54 PM

Hi girls, I'm 13w 3 d today, and Ive had one of the worst days of pregnancy exhaustion I can remember. I ended up leaving work
At 12 because I was so tired I couldn't keep going (sitting at a desk with nothing taxing to do!) I stayed in bed and dozed all afternoon, couldn't even be bothered to read or playing the phone, just lay with my eyes shut.

I've got an ob appt on wed so can check then, but anyone had something similar? I feel silly saying I'm tired as I'm sure everyone's thinking "yeah, aren't we all"!

#21 RealityBites

Posted 29 October 2012 - 09:03 PM

Twiggywinkle - thanks, ms is a little better, I am eating lunches now! Still can't drink water but getting there ..
I have noticed more tiredness since I started feeling better. I fell asleep on the couch this afternoon, I don't think that I would be coping with full-time work.

I've been living on toast as well, but with cheese, and toasted cheese sandwiches. Tomorrow will probably be horrible, we're out of cheese, and I was so busy today I didn't make it to the shops  ddoh.gif

So far my scans have been BB, am thankful, cause I'm a poor uni student lol. Not sure yet if they BB the NT scan, or if I'm get the NT scan done (though the chance to see the baby again is more tempting, and well the relief to see things going well to).

I'm going through a crappy sleeping faze atm, am exhausted by mid arvo, but can't nap, then end up falling asleep anywhere between 9 & midnight, to wake up during the night to pee then no sleep usually for an hour or so. So in the morning I wake up feeling really crappy, which isn't great when you need to study for exams and move house.

#23 Leefa

Posted 29 October 2012 - 10:25 PM

Wah! Dinner made an unpleasant comeback after I'd already gone to bed and fallen asleep. Nothing like suddenly waking up and running for the bathroom to get the heart rate going! Munching on some toast(because I am now starving, of course) and drinking lots of water. I need a good sleep, got our scan tomorrow. Hate vomiting so much!

#24 Minkyem

Kate I'm really sorry about your sad news.
So much sad news in this dig lately. Just heartbreaking sad.gif
Afm - still cramping & bleeding as I pretty much have the whole time, scan # 4 today showed a perfectly healthy baby. So sick of being on *high alert* all the time, but in light of everything, just so incredibly greatful baby is growing & appears healthy.
13 sleeps til NT!!
And no big pregnancy reveal here - I'm massive already at 10.5 weeks! People have known, or rather guessed for weeks!!

Morning  original.gif

Minkyem, that must be really horrible, to be bleeding still.  bbighug.gif . Wouldn't it be wonderful if all women could just sail through pregnancy, without any risks and problems?

Bluemakede, I'm in a crappy sleeping pattern at the moment too. I'm exhausted by 8.30pm and will go to bed, then be wide awake anywhere from 4am. I can't seem to make myself stay awake later at night though to try and get back to normal! And needing the loo once or twice for me as well.

I have the day off today, which I'm grateful for  eexcite.gif . 5yo DS has a cold and will most likely spend much of the day resting on the couch, so I'm hoping that I'll have a cruisy day.

Good luck for those who have scans today!
