I'm definitely far more nervous/anxious this pregnancy than I ever was with DD. I guess I had such an easy ride with her and it never occurred to me to worry about anything.
The past 2 days I've been feeling really good. A lot of my symptoms had subsided so I started getting nervous that something had gone wrong so I took a CB digi. Was very relieved to see the weeks had gone up to 2-3 which is right being 4+5. Of course after that the nausea returned so everything was right in the world 😂
Saw my GP yesterday. Will get bloods but not for HCG. He/I know I'm pregnant and I won't monitor HCG progression. He's testing for antibodies because of the CP last month, iron and vit D levels. He also gave me a referral for a dating scan. He said to wait until 6 weeks but I'll wait till after 7. I really want to see a heart beat!
How's everyone else?

It's still sinking in that I'm pregnant haha! Headed to the GP this morning and try to remember to add toxo titres to my bloods! I'm sure I'm going to forget..
Still no symptoms, but again I had nothing at all last pregnancy until 6-7 weeks and I'm not even 4 yet.
Working out in my head how to tell my boss (which I'll have to do today or tomorrow!!)...
