Made another week! Still an ickle pickle but perfect growth since last week, phew!

Hope everything went well today Anilav :)

Jaffa, if you book a private scan, maybe get a bit closer to 7 weeks as every pregnancy is different. Plus, this time, I had a scan at 6 weeks and just a fetal pole and then just 3 days later we saw the hb, so can be better to err on the side of caution. I'm leaving the midwife as late as possible, but then in our area you have the see the GP and they put the referral in for the scan. Like Amber said it's a long appointment!

Hope you're ok Blossom x

Hope the headaches have passed Amber. Don't worry about paracetamol - it's absolutely fine. There are things they prefer not to give you, but at the end of the day sometimes they have to! Most things they just haven't tested on pregnant women because it's not really a group of people you can take a risk with! So even if things are contraindicated, it doesn't actually necessarily mean it's bad for you. But paracetamol is tried and tested, so don't feel bad about using it when you have to x

Dudders; so glad it went well for you!

AFM: we have a heartbeat! I'm really in shock, I was convinced it was going to be another MMC. I feel like the first hurdle is over, definitely not out of the woods but a bit nearer than I was.

Hope everyone else is ok. xx

Great to hear that both scans went well and thanks for the reassurance about the paracetemol.

I have my booking appointing tomorrow. I just hope I am not going to be over monitored through this pregnancy and I am certainly not doing the weight thing. Pregnancy is not a good time for eating disorders!

Getting really fed up with feeling sick all the time, I will be 11 weeks tomorrow so I am hoping that it should clear up in the next couple of weeks.

hope everyone else is ok

Hi sorry not been on last few days been at center parcs so not had a chance to post really.

Anilav ..glad to hear your scan went well, you must have felt over the moon as I know the feeling too of just expecting the worst. Fc all continues to go well for you, what happens next? Do u have another scan booked or have you got to wait to 12 weeks now or will u get a private one for reassurance?

Dudders..so pleased to hear your scan went well too. Good sign you have had the right amount of growth this week. Whens your next check?

Amber..sorry to hear your still struggling with the sickness, mine has been worse these last few weeks too, having so many food adversions it makes it difficult to know what to eat! Hope you feel better soon and it usually does start to ease of by 12 weeks. Good luck with midwife appt, dont worry about the weight thing they will take your starting weight and height and work out your bmi.

Jaffa.. hope your ok and yay you over 5 weeks and digi was excellent result so all looking good for you too. When are you thinking you might get a scan?

Afm..all seems to be ok here and started to sprout a small bump which have found reassuring. Also found baby's heart beat on my doppler today so feel reasurreed by that too. Need to get a scan ideally on friday this week but not booked yet. Struggling with food and feeling sick too. Anyone else starting to show? Still feels so unreal to be here and still hanging on to baby.

Hi all

Had my booking appointment this afternoon and all went fine. I can't believe that they are giving you the urine sample bottles back to empty and take a long to your next appointment. Times are really hard in the NHS! Apparently I won't get my maternity folder until my 16 week appointment but rather they kept it for a bit. Most of the appointment was form filling so not that exciting. Worst thing is that my pregnancy sickness could last up to week 16, and there I was thinking maybe after next week! Midwife confirmed again that the paracetemol I had taken was perfectly fine and if I do get more headaches I might want to discuss with my GP. I will get a 12 week scan, however I will be on holiday for a week in that period so hopefully I will get an appointment in the correct time window.

Hope you had a good time at center parcs Blossom, it sounds a good place for a weekend break, maybe next year as they look baby friendly. I can see a bit of a bump appearing now but it is easy to hide. My clothes are still fitting as I think the pregnancy sickness has resulted in me loosing some weight. Did have a look round the shops last weekend to see what maternity clothes were available and could see any! Even Debenhams and they have them online.

hope everyone else is okay.

Hi all,

I've just found out today that I'm pregnant and still in total shock! Think I'm only 4 weeks as I got 1-2 weeks on a clearblue digital test. Fertility clinic was shut today so I'm going to ring them tomorrow and let them know ... What do I do now?! Will I get an early scan as I've been having treatment? x

Just crashing to say congratulations to Slk - we spoke on the TTC board I think on the ovarian drilling. SO excited for you. I would first phone GP and get that ball rolling - with regards to the early scan. They don't offer them much now. I ended up paying for a private scan. Congrats babe xxxx

Hi
Welcome slk, congratulations on your pregnancy and happt healthy 9 months to you. I expect as you have been having fertility treatment you would be offered an early scan between 6-7 weeks when heartbeat can be detected. I expect your still in shock? What fertility treatment were you on?

Amber glad your booking in appt went well with midwife and good news on your 12 week scan being offered. Where are you of on holiday? Yeah is funny about the pots being re-used!

Dudderw hope your ok ?

Anilav hope your good news is sinking in now.

Afm ended up having my 10 week scan today as didnt feel right last few days. pleased to report all looked perfect, I cant believe how much more we could see and it looked like a proper baby with arms and legs flapping about. Baby did a complete 360 flip around too which was awesome. She said heartbeat very strong and fast and baby very active which was all good. Roll on the 12 weeker now! Also measured slightly more at 10 plus 2 and not 9 plus 6 like I thought.
Only downside is I have a horrible urine infection which was the thing not making me feel right, have been given antibiotics. Been feeling rotton all day but was glad to be seen by hospital so quickly after being worried about infection.

Hope everyone else ok

Hi all,

Fmw9412 congrats to you! I'm still in total shock as I'm sure you are! I'm going to phone the fertility clinic today and let them know and then I guess I'll make a GPs appointment. I'm so terrified that something will go wrong but I'm trying to think postive.

Blossom congrats on your scan glad everything's going well. I had ovarian drilling at the beginning of April and have been on clomid for 1 round since. This is only my second ovulation in 14 months both of which had to be clomid induced so I feel very lucky!

Thanks all :-)

Blossom - great news about your scan! Such a shame you have a urine infection though; my Hubby has had one too and is really suffering bless him. Hope you feel better soon x

Slk - I am also going to call my GP today; feels very premature to be doing this though, completely understand how you feel when you say you think something will go wrong. I feel extrememly lucky also and can really relate to you. I do not ovulate on my own, never responded to 50mg Clomid so took it upon myself to up the dose to 100mg (naughty I know) and had 3 cycles, third one obviously resulting in this! :-)

Hope everyone has an awesome day, weather is lush again! x

Morning!

So I spoke to the fertilty clinic have booked me in for an early scan without me even asking so that's good - i''ll be 6 + 2 by then - will I see a heartbeat? Fmw9412 how did your call go are you being offered the same? I went to the gp they only checked my blood pressure and filled in a load of details really, nothing exciting but it was so strange saying 'I'm pregnant'!

Hope everyone's keeping well x

Morning all,

Slk - I called GP yesterday and they told me to come in and collect a pregnancy pack. They said a midwife should be in contact within a week. That's great news that you have been offered an early scan! I doubt very much that I will be offered one as I wasn't being monitored anyway. Yes I was prescribed Clomid from my GP last year, but when I went back this year to request to up the dose, they refused and were not much help anyway as I already have a child. I had a stock of Clomid at home so went against their advice and upped the dose and within 3 rounds, hey presto, here I am 4weeks 3 days pregnant!
I did pay for a private scan a few weeks back to check lining and developing follies, so perhaps I can persuade Hubby to pay for an early scan...

Sorry, babbled a bit there!

When ru planning on telling people? Hubby told his Mum last night coz he just couldn't wait lol
