How is everyone this morning?

I fell asleep at 8:30 last night and woke at 8am! So needless to say I actually don't feel exhausted!

I have a scan tomorrow at 4:30pm. Very nervous sad.gif  My last 3 did not turn out well.

BUt on the positive, this is the first time I am having real pregnancy symptoms. So fingers crossed!

Hope everyone is well.

I'm hungry today but don't feel like much.. A fruit salad would go down a treat I think.

Morning all!

Well, scan was Thursday (6 weeks, 2 days).  All was good, but the measurements show the bub was 5 weeks 4 days.  Grr!  I'm sticking to my original dates. Tounge1.gif  Also...apparently there was some blood in there.  The technician asked if I'd had any bleeding (I haven't).  My GP says it's fine.  I asked where the placenta would be and she couldn't tell.  Now I just have to wait till the end of March to see my OB.

DS is sick and getting molars.  He's given his virus to me.  I've felt like crap, and took the weekend off (paid) work.  DH now has the same thing.  He took today off work and said to me 'you know it won't really be a day off to rest if I'm at home, right?'  
I just looked at him and raised my eyebrows and he backtracked pretty quickly!  He's a great dad and husband, but today he really has a case of manflu. Ahh, well.  It means I get the car and can go out once Mr Crankypants has woken up.

Sorry about the 'me' post - haven't read back through the last thread to catch up.  Hope everyone is well!

I'm very envious if all your scans, I won't have one for another 6-7 weeks.
Question though, are these scans able to be abdomenly?

Another day of awful sickness, I actually spewed this morning. So gross. Can't wait til this part is over and I can start enjoying it.

Well I am measuring a week behind. I am seven weeks according to LMP but the sono said 'around six weeks'. I will get the full report on Wednesday with all my bloods and everything.

There was a strong heartbeat which I am very happy about!

I think I am going to be like you leftwrightout and keep my dates!

Well until the Dr tells otherwise!

#13 SaintJoe

Posted 25 February 2013 - 11:51 AM

What does that mean Penguin?  Is that because you ovulated later than you thought?

Awesome about the strong heartbeat!  YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!!!!!

#14 A-ZMum

Posted 25 February 2013 - 12:09 PM

Cooperdoo - they can do part just pressing on your tummy (with a full bladder!) but because it's so early, part of it has to be done transvaginally.

#15 Cooperdoo

Posted 25 February 2013 - 12:16 PM

Penguin I guess there are a lot of variables. Cycle length, ovulation late. And around 6 could mean up to 6.3 weeks.

But yay on the heartbeat that's fantastic!

#16 Sarah Mac

Posted 25 February 2013 - 12:18 PM

Glad your scan went well penguin.

Good luck for your scan myboys.

Sorry to hear that lots of people are having MS. I hope it's not too bad and you can get through it.

I am working 3 days a week at the moment, but my contract finishes in May and I don't know about getting it extended so I can get maternity leave yet.

Boobs have started hurting on and off now, which actually makes me feel pregnant!!!

New thread! Sorry I missed the end of last one, I hope everyone is going really well (or enjoying m/s  happy.gif) I'm sure we had lots of newbies join too - so welcome to any of our new mummas!

Hooray on the heartbeat Penguin!!!!  biggrin.gif biggrin.gif  It's annoying to go back in dates isn't it! My doctor and sonographer both strongly reassured me that a week's difference is FINE!  original.gif

Myboys, I hope tomorrow's scan is fourth time lucky!  biggrin.gif The appearance of pregnancy symptoms is certainly promising! Good luck. xx

leftwrightout - Sorry to hear how unwell you are, poor thing! Great to hear you saw bubby on the scan, did you get to see the heartbeat yet or still too early? I had a hematoma with my first two kids. (I think they called it a threatened miscarriage for me because it was actually making me bleed.) In the vast majority of cases all is well though!  biggrin.gif  

Cooperdoo - I'm a little bit jealous of your morning sickness. Vile as m/s is, the reassurance feels good for me. My last baby made me feel vilely ill (though no spewing) and it was...comforting. Wishing you a speedy 1st tri, and then onward to the better months! x

B.M.C.M.I
- I just had a huge bowl of icy cold mango, a TREAT indeed!!! Fruit...mmmm!

AFM - well, three more sleeps to my scan! I'm so nervous but trying not to think about it. (Ha, I lie. I think about it constantly.) I'm still not really nauseous (at 7 weeks today), so nothing like my last couple of pregnancies. This time my main symptom is the most disgusting taste in my mouth ALL the time, coupled with an insatiable thirst and craving for iced tea and cold fruit. And chocolate, surprisingly. These are all thing things I normally go right off and can't abide at all during the first trimester. Have no idea what's going on. Still have sore boobs, exhaustion and a mild queasy feeling when hungry or after eating.

Back to obsessing over not thinking about my coming scan!  happy.gif

Ooh and the oscars are on.... LOVE!!!!

xx Sunny

Hi girls waves.gif

Klj1 Thanks for the tips re: the wedding!! I think my best bet will just be to pretend to have a few wines throughout the night and just sit them down on another table or tip them in pot plants like Sunny suggested laughing2.gif I don't really want to draw attention to it too much so hopefully no one will notice much happy.gif I so hear you on the catering, that's always  worry when you're pregnant at a wedding! Glad you could manage to find something in the end before you starved biggrin.gif I remember going to a friends wedding when I was 13 weeks pregnant with DD, and it was a cocktail style reception and I couldn't eat anything! All of it was prawns, brie, things with ham, etc etc, I was starving lol. I ended up getting DH to stop at maccas on the way home so I could get a cheeseburger blush.gif Haha. At least I didn't have to keep bub a secret at that one hehe. Looking forward to it though, will be nice to have a child free night out with DH for once original.gif
So cute DH is getting all excited!

c_shell So lovely hearing bout Sweden, it sounds gorgeous over there. A friend of mine and her husband travelled a lot last year and stayed in Sweden for a few months, she loved it.
Hope you're feeling much better soon.

MrsRadiant LOL to your dream! Pregnancy certainly makes you have some crazy dreams hehe.
I hope you're feeling better soon and your M/S doesn't hang around too long sad.gif I remember that immediately sick feeling with DD1, it's not nice! I used to throw up all day on and off with her till 20 weeks, then DD2 I was only sick from 9-15 weeks and it was mainly feeling sick in the tummy with only about 10 vomits all up lol, so I have no idea what to expect this time! Hoping it eases for me with each pregnancy wink.gif ha! Although I do find morning sickness strangely reassuring, and am already wondering if all is ok in there with this bub because I haven't thrown up yet rolleyes.gif Hopefully your morning sickness will feel like a distant memory soon and you can just enjoy every minute of your pregnancy wub.gif

B.M.C.M.I Good luck on your 'first day' grin.gif Very exciting!

**myboys** All the best for your scan tomorrow, will be looking forward to a good news update afterwards original.gif

leftwrightout Hope you're feeling better soon. Oh noooooo to the man flu ffear.gif lol! Of course it's always so much worse when they get it hehe. Hope for both your sakes everyone is feeling 100% better asap!
Glad your scan went well, bummer to your dates being pushed back though! Hopefully you'll gain those days back again at your next scan biggrin.gif

Cooperdoo Argh I hope you're feeling better soon, not nice vomiting all the time.
Bummer you have to wait so long till your scan, but it'll all be worth it when you can see your perfect little bub on the screen bbabyflip.gif I've always had my early scans around 8 weeks and they can be done abdominally then no problems, another reason why I'm happy to wait that little bit longer wink.gif

Penguin78 YAY for seeing a beautiful strong heartbeat! Woohoo! Hopefully you'll make up that extra week along the way too happy.gif

Hi to everyone else, hope you're all feeling well.

AFM: Feeling a bit blahh today, not sick, just 'funny'. Bit dizzy and light headed and tired. I remember feeling like this with DD2 and I didn't realise I was pregnant, just kept telling DH that 'something wasn't right' and I should go to the dr's laughing2.gif Didn't realise it was because I was growing a baby! So hopefully that means little bub is a-ok in there happy.gif Have my dr's appt tomorrow so I'm sure she'll send me for bloods and hopefully give me my referral for my scan! Will feel a bit more real then.
Biggest test for me this week is going to be keeping the secret at mothers group, so busting to tell the girls but hoping to hold out a few more weeks yet. So funny that with DD1 I didn't want to tell anyone as I was so scared something might go wrong again and would've happily kept it to ourselves till 20 weeks if I didn't have a big bump already haha, but this time I just can't be bothered hiding it and want to share our news with everyone happy.gif Hopefully all is perfect in there and it'll be time soon enough.
Hope everyone has a good day x


ETA: Hi Sunny, must've been posting at the same time! Hope the sleeps hurry up till scan time, feeling excited for you and hope it's all wonderful news to share with us afterwards.
I'm watching the oscars too while the girls are asleep happy.gif

Chaton - The pic in my sig was taken at Wilsons Promontory in Victoria, such a beautiful place. That baby in the pic is turning 4 next month  ohmy.gif . The snow in Sweden sounds amazing, so strange that you are out skiing and I am melting in the Melbourne heat.

Sunny Flower - soooo get you on the trying not to think about it but its all I have on my mind things

Work - currently working 2 days a week.

Scan - I wasn't going to have a dating scan but am now considering asking for one. I think my doc will be ok with it as I will just tell her Im not sure when I ovulated. Also thought of being an ultrasound training model - they pay you $25 for an hour and you get pics.

I'm so feeling the heat at the moment, I heard today that there has been a record number of days over 30 in Melbourne in Feb, well I feel like most of them have been since I found out I was preg!

Peaches - I had a wedding on the weekend. I had soda water and orange in a champange glass. After one drink the waiter caught on and did it automatically without me asking!  Clever waiter!
Pretty sure I fooled everyone as at one point my DH best mate hugged me and told me I was so much fun drunk!!!

#24 ~Peaches~

Posted 25 February 2013 - 01:28 PM

That is a brilliant idea **myboys**! The wedding is at a private villa that I haven't been to before, so I'm not sure what the food/beverage situation is going to be like unsure.gif Not sure if there will be a bar with lots on offer, or just waiters walking around with wine/beer/champagne etc. I'm sure I'll find a way to make it work either way, one of DH's sisters is just onto pregnancies within 30 seconds so she's my biggest concern haha laugh.gif Lucky I'm not a big drinker anyway so it shouldn't be too hard to hide hopefully original.gif

Klj1 - Ahh, that's totally it!  I just had a go at DH who has been lying on the floor all day.  He doesn't get why I'm jealous.  He said I should have told him what I wanted on the weekend when I was sick (as opposed to him offering things...).  He then brought up the fact that I had a half hour facial on Saturday when I was sick.  
Yep.  Half an hour.  Whooo!
Then he told me that if he knew I'd be like this he'd rather have suffered at school.  Great.  Next time he can.  I've done everything I can to help him feel better today.  
He's now taken DS out for a walk while I calm down.  The worst part is, I can't explain to him why I feel so upset because my brain has gone to mush with pregnancy hormones.  I'm hoping he comes back and apologises but who knows.
Anyway, they're back...better go!
