I really hope so! No I don't know what side baby is at. From the very start I always felt like baby was on left but I really have no idea at all! Cm is totally clear again so hopefully that's a good sign x

I don't know where you are and whether you could get a private scan tomorrow, although as it would only be a day earlier than the NHS one there may not be any point.

I went for a scan last Sunday at a private place and it made me feel better to know the nuchal measurements a few days earlier.

You could always go and get checked out Kirsty even if it's just for your own piece of mind. Most wards have scanning machines on so you may even get a scan a little earlier. Im not sure what the guidelines are where you are but here any red bleeding is always investigated ASAP where as brown blood isn't.

I know at my local EPU there is a walk-in clinic for up to 16 weeks and they scan you if you have red bleeding. I hope the bleeding is nothing xxx

Thinking about you Kirsty! I'm hoping all is well. I'm glad it mostly cleared up. I wouldn't be surprised if you saw a little more when you peed. Probably just what was leftover being pushed out. I have heard that some women experience some bleeding as a result of the placenta taking over between 10-12 weeks so that could be what is going on. I would also recommend getting checked out if you can, if only for peace of mind.

As for me, I got to hear my baby's heartbeat today! My husband has been bugging me for weeks to let him try a doppler on me. I finally agreed so he came home at lunch and brought his clinic's doppler with him. He was able to find it after just a few minutes of looking. I forget exactly what the heartbeat was, but somewhere in the 160s. I'm still worried that something may go wrong, but it was nice to actually heat it this time around.

Kristy, hope it clears up very soon!!

Sorry I've been quiet, I've been distracting myself mostly all week. My next appointment is in 4 days, but it's just the RN visit to take down my history and such. 7 weeks tomorrow! Also, my son told the in-laws when they came to visit, oh well. lol MIL was giving my son lollipops and handed him 4, and he was like, "well can we have one more for the baby?" It was too cute, last pregnancy he wasn't interested in any of it, but this time around he's just too cute with it.

Karoolia - fantastic that you were able to hear the heartbeat. Yesterday at the scan it was 168 for me. I am thinking of getting a Doppler for home, although I am worried I will use it obsessively lol or won't be able to find the heartbeat at all (because I have no idea how to use the thing).

Darling - your son sounds very cute, bless . Nice that he is excited about the baby

How sweet darlingqueen!

That's great news about the heartbeat karoolia. I'm tempted to try my Doppler but I keep chickening out. Cause I almost finished my midwife training I know how to find it but I'm half afraid I won't find it and then panic till Monday.

I have been saying no to the doppler for a week or two now because I was scared it would worry me more. I finally caved mainly because I think I was hurting DH's feelings. He kept telling me how good he is at finding the heartbeat and how he can always find it within a few minutes. I'm just very relieved he found it. I would have spent the next few days panicking if he hadn't.
