I am in the UK, so have to pay privately for early scans, but it's worth it for me. I think i may now wait for the 12 week scan on the NHS (national Health Service).

Although I may go again in about 7 - 10 days.

I also can't decide whether to have a panorama test or just wait for the normal NHS screening.

For those of you considering early scans - anywhere from 6 and a half weeks is a good time. Personally as soon as I got to 6 weeks 3 days I sprinted off to have a scan

Yes, not looking forward to breaking that one to her 😂

Do you think I should tell her I'm pregnant too? She knows about my miscarriages and has been really supportive.

Sweetkat- so glad everything is looking good! It'll get easier once you feel movement. If t takes 1000 scans for you to relax I say go for it! Whatever works for you.

Cupcake- just keep on snacking. Whatever keeps your stomach calm. Could you eat something like veggies/fruit? It'll cut down on the bloat some. How far will you be if you book a scan next week?

Jojo- it's perfectly normal for you I react that way. Sometimes it's hard to hear someone is safely moving trimester to trimester when you've struggled so hard to do the same. Don't apologize for human feelings. and I'd tell your boss if you feel you need to. never hurts to have support.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. Looks like I'm still on board and will be 6 weeks Friday. My 6 mc have never progressed passed 7 weeks (if they got that far). When I return from vacation I'll be 8 weeks and from then on out in in uncharted territory. Wish I could take a 30 week vacation lol

I'm 6 weeks today, deciding to hold off adding a ticker till I'm 8 weeks, thinking 7 weeks is a good time for a scan.

I can't stop eating 😱 I only seem to want carbs, fruits don't seem to do it for me, lol.

Sweetkat- I just picture you literally turning 6 weeks 3 days and running off to the scan

Jojo- if you feel close enough to your coworker than I would definitely tell her! Since she's been so supportive and is now in the same pregnancy boat, she may be a great person to connect with. I would hold off on telling your boss if you can though

Florida- vacations are amazing and especially for passing time! How great it will be to come home when you're 8 weeks!!

Cupcake- I totally get it with the ticker hesitation! And I am right there with you with the carb- filled eating!! Just yesterday and today have I been a bit pickier with what I want to eat, before that I felt like I was eating non stop!

As for me, I went out and bought a pack of digi tests yesterday. Last time, at 5 weeks 1 day I was really hoping to see a 2-3 weeks. I used it in the afternoon and only got 1-2 I was upset but many people said you had to use FMU, so I tried that the next day and still got 1-2 very next day I started miscarrying. Sooooo, needless to say, all I wanted to see yesterday was a 2-3 weeks. I used afternoon urine and got a 3+!!! It definitely made me tear up and kept me positive . It's almost the weekend! Do you guys have any plans?

I took a clear blue digi the day I had spotting and got a 3+ again. I just took 2 today and got 2-3 I did drink about 24oz of water between 8:30-10 plus 32oz of a smoothie and my urine was dilute. I'm not panicking and I don't necessarily feel like it's over. I'm just coasting. Not sure if I should call the ob or not

Why not give them a ring? No harm in doing this.

Sorry I was away for several days ladies.

Welcome lucy
I'm very sorry for your losses. It is sad that we have groups like this, but I am thankful they do exist and we don't have to go through things alone. Cheers to 12 week milestone

florida praying everything is okay with your LO. 6 weeks today yes? How are you feeling?

You're only a few days away from that 6 week milestone BSelck Keeping the calendar filled is a great idea! 8 weeks is a great time for a scan, they look like a proper baby and less...blobby. Will you be able to book with your provider or privately? Oh and 3+ digi

I'm so glad to see that your scan went well Sweetkat!

Yay for sickness cupcake! (you know what I mean) Snuggle in sweet baby!

Jojo I'm in agreement with the other ladies regarding telling your co-worker.

Has anyone heard from lemz?

Wednesday my OB's office called with my beta and progesterone results and everything looked wonderful. They asked me to go in the next day for a scan. So I went in yesterday afternoon and was able to see my sweet little baby with it's beautiful heart just beating away. I was overcome with happy tears. Given my history my OB will be having me go in for weekly scans for a while. My milestones will probably be baby steps for a time. They found a very large bleed and I'm praying it resolves by next week's scan and that baby is still very healthy.

No big plans for me this weekend...still on modified bed rest. As per doctor's orders now.

How is everyone getting on?

Oh Busy!! How great for your betas and scan!!! I'm starting to get excited about a future scan for me too!! I'm starting to believe this is real!

I've been a bit constipated and having little bouts of nausea here and there but that's it! So I'm feeling good and my goal is to take my son for a walk everyday (no matter how exhausted I feel) because I'm still eating plenty so I want to stay healthy!

Also I've been taking that baby aspirin which helps with blood flow so I feel like my walks are simply aiding that.
