I know the feeling. My scan is Monday and it feels like a lifetime away. Wish I could just sleep till then. I keep saying I'm going to try and be less anxious but I never manage it.

My scan is tomorrow (the NHS one) and even that feels like ages away.

I asked for a repeat GBS test closer to delivery, I don't know whether it was diagnosed through blood or urine sample as I gave both (but didn't have a swab). I would definitely pay 40 because if I need antibiotics in labour I want to make sure I get them!

I feel really sick and really bloated today. People must think I am a fat slob or suspect sth is up, although my best friend (who hasn't seen me for 2 weeks) invited me for drinks! So maybe she does think I am fat I tried on sooo many things today before settling on one skirt that is loose enough not to show the entirely of my belly

I had the swab done for gbs I would ask for that nearer the time.

My nausea is back but thankfully it's not as bad but it's been getting worse the last three days. Trying to stay positive from that

Sweetkat - I think I am about 9w now based on my first scan. We are planning on doing the Harmony test in about a week. We did this with our last pregnancy and everything came back normal, but we lost him anyways so i don't know if getting it will ease any anxiety or not. But hopefully it will.

Good luck Kristy, Sorry time is dragging on so much. Try to just remain positive.

Karoolia- New Brunswick is beautiful, my best friend has a sugary out there. Three connections sound like hell, but totally worth it.

I know nothing about strep b testing, sorry.

Myshelsong - yes, I love NB! I have a lot of family there, mostly in Mirimichi, but I have spent time in pretty much every city and town. I haven't been for a few years now due to moving so far away so I am excited to get back!

Kirsty - I know how you feel. Tuesday feels like an eternity away. Do you have anything planned for the weekend to distract you?

For the last two days I was so distracted with the visitation and funeral for our friend's baby that I didn't have time to worry, but now that everything is over my mind has gone into full worry mode again. I haven't felt sick in the last few days, aside from the odd short bout of queasiness. I know that ms can fade around 10 weeks, but it still worries me. Knowing last time I had a missed miscarriage I know that it could all be over already and I just wouldn't know it. Sigh, roll on Tuesday!

Nothing planned but kids go back to school a week on Tuesday and I still need to get all their uniform sorted so planning to do that at some point.

Myshel - I had never done panorama or harmony before but this time it did give me some reassurance (well at least that there is a low chance of chromosomal issues).

Karoolia - your trip sounds very exciting . I would fly back home as well for a big event.

Maryanne - not long until Monday and your first consultant appointment.

Kirsty - Countdown to your scan is on

Afm, it's my NHS scan today at lunchtime. I look awful at the moment - bloated and fat and generally yuck from the MS. Never mind

Good luck sweetkat!

I think pregnancy is the only time when it's perfectly acceptable to look a mess. Well that's what I'm telling myself anyway. I've been sick so much the last few days that my skin has reached a whole new shade of pale, my belly looks like I've eaten too many pies and I've just woken up with a face full of spots. DH is such s lucky man
