Hi Luckybabe,

Which care clinic are you at? I know how you feel I'm nearly 15 weeks and you are always focusing on the next scan or milestone but 12 week scan is a buggy! I had to wait til 13 weeks for mine! I had the care one at six weeks then two at nine weeks due to a bleed and then 13. Been having some sharp twinges over the weekend so may well be sent back for another this week!

If it's any help my sickness tended to ease off at around 13.5 weeks although I was lucky and only had permanent queasy sickness and never actually sick. Comes odd days now but generally gone but it's replaced with tiredness and headaches 🙄🙄

Oh the joys. Congratulations though very exciting time after such a long journey!

Hi Flash,

wow your got your letter really quickly. I haven't anything as of yet so hoping that means the high risk phone call isn't coming. I'll just sit tight and wait for the letter.

which books did you go for? there are so many! A lady at work has recommended one so I might get that.

That is great you have been given so much stuff... so far I have nothing :lol: but I haven't actually seen anyone since we started telling people so maybe over xmas we will start getting some hand me downs.

Thanks Lucky, glad to be passed the scan, just waiting on the screening results now.

Hi Charlotte,

I thought that the longer I heard nothing the better it was 😁😁. Paid for a reassurance scan earlier today and saw such a difference even in 11 days since dating scan! The babies arms and legs had grown so much and think they're taking after my other half as he has really long legs! We could see the baby kicking me and lying on its head! We also got to hear the heartbeat for the first time which was amazing!!

Feeling a lot better now and won't be doing any moving things that are too big like I did before my sharp pains - hence the scan! So relieved!

Lucky it is always a worry. I'm 15 weeks tomorrow and will be 18 by Christmas!

Hi Flash,

yes definitely, the longer I hear noting the better.

That's great news and how lovely to finally hear the heart beat. I think I am going to pay for a reassurance/gender scan just before Christmas, they can go gender from 16 weeks apparently. It will be lovely to be able to tell people the gender over Christmas plus I would also really like to hear the heart beat and would mean waiting until my 20week scan otherwise.

It's amazing how quickly they grow isn't it and I am so glad you are ok and the pains were nothing to worry about :D :D

Yes keep leave all the big heavy jobs to your other half.

So according to my treatment dates I will be 14 weeks tomorrow, original estimated due date was 4th June, but now that I have had my dating scan my due date is 2nd June, does that make me 14 weeks today?!?!?

Hi Charlotte,

Yes I moved my dates according to the dating scan so consider my self 15 weeks today. Makes me chuckle that you're exactly one week behind me -with your due date too 😁😁

We've started ripping out cupboards for the nursery and got a wardrobe off my sister so bit by bit I'm getting there 😁😁😁

that's exciting, our spare room has been empty other than a spin bike since we moved in a year ago so it's a nice blank canvas. Recently had the room plastered so in the new year we will think about painting it and getting bits to go in it.

I don't really have a bump, I am certainly getting bigger but not really a definitive bump yet. First pregnancies take longer to show as your muscles need to stretch first. Most of my friends who have had babies did show until around 16 weeks.

Well my 20 week scan is on the 20th January (ill be 20+6) but if I do opt to have a private scan then I will probably have that around 17weeks. My birthday is Christmas eve which is when I will be 17 weeks according to my dating scan so was thinking of going then.

Oh and Flash, my screening all came back negative thank god.

Hi ladies,

Sorry its taken so long to get back on I don't know where the weeks seem to be going!

I relented as of the weekend and am now in maternity jeans too some of the bump is my wobbly tummy from before but alot of it is baby as it's very hard. I have a very definite bump now especially after I've eaten! I'm 16 weeks today.

I am convinced I'm having a boy but my hubby won't move on his position of not finding out so I think we are on for a suprise. Charlotte what a fab birthday present!! And something to share in a fun way with family over Christmas - sounds amazing!! Do u have any incling what you think you're having?

Great news on the screening too. Another milestone reached 😁😁😁 Can't wait for twenty weeks now half way! I'm having my anomaly scan on 2nd Jan at 19 weeks so that's the next milestone and then it's feeling the baby move and kick will be the next! After twenty weeks or nineteen week scan will start buying bigger things like car seats and buggies which again will be the next step. Each milestone feels amazing!

Hope you are both coping with the tiredness especially in this gloomy cold weather. I'm just really tired and generally hibernate for half the day 😂🤣

Take care ladies x

Hi Flash, glad you're doing ok.

it's lovely to have a little bump, my other half barely noticed :lol: but the girls at work did :D.

I feel like I could be having a girl... all the babies born around me lately have been boys so i feel like maybe it's time for a girl. I have been craving a lot of sweets (although I have always loved sweets), and blue slush puppies!!! My mum craved ice lollies with me! "They" also say that with boys you get the pregnancy glow where as girls your skin can get spotty which mine is! But who knows, guess I will find out soon enough :D

feels like such a big gap between our 20 week scans (2nd and 20th) considering we are only a week apart but I will be more than 20 weeks for mine. Are you hoping hubby caves and lets you find out the gender at the scan? I have my 16 week appointment next week with a consultant so that's something else to pass the time before the scan.

A girl I know felt baby as early as 17 weeks but I think usually it's more like 20 weeks!

My tiredness has got a lot better but I am still feeling it a bit. I had a really full on day Saturday and boy did I notice it the next day. I have my Christmas party this Saturday which is another full day... on a boat as well!!!!!

Lucky, I bet you can't wait until Friday

xx

Hi ladies,

No Charlotte there's no chance of hubby caving he's a stubborn Yorkshireman 🙄🙄 Hey ho maybe at nineteen weeks I might catch a glimpse of something but in some ways I know afterwards that I will probably be glad we didn't. And yes seems very far apart but aw you say mines at 19 and yours 20+

Lucky I've not had a drop either I think why risk it. I'm hoping to breast feed so not sure about next Christmas!

Have a great hump day!

Morning Ladies,

the drinking thing isn't really as issue for me, I've never been a big drinker and pretty much stopped altogether back in October 2018 when we decided to try IVF. I've probably drank on 3 or 4 occasions over the past year and nothing at all since I started this last round of IVF. I have to say I do feel very smug when I wake up feeling great the next day and all my friends feel rough :lol:

NHS guidelines now say safest approach is to stay away completely as it can affect the babies development. You're right Flash, why risk it.

I'm also hoping to breast feed so that awkwardness of getting timings right when drinking sounds like a pain!!!

Hi ladies,

Glad your scan went well lucky. I have my next midwife appointment tomorrow so will get to heart the heartbeat again😁😁 I always get a little bit twitchy before appointments but think that's just the nature of the beast. I'm 17weeks today and can't believe I'm nearly half way!

Have a good week ladies
