I'm ok thanks just very slight brown cm this morning. Scan is Tuesday morning.
Got a family lunch out today so at least that will take my mind of things for a bit x

Glad you could hear the heartbeat, how exciting!
We probably won't pull out our Doppler until around 15 weeks if everything goes smoothly. I don't want to start freaking myself out too soon when it is hard to find.

Glad bleeding has toned down now and is just brown.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. We had my parents, sister and nephews over last night for dinner. It was. Played some lawn games, set up a fire in the back yard, roasted some marshmallows. We are still keeping everything a secret, I hope to tell them once we are through the first trimester. Fingers are crossed!!

I'm back to having loads of cm and thankfully it's been totally clear for a while now. Fingers crossed bleeding will stay away and baby is ok. I always feel like I jinx myself when I write things on here!!!

Who hasn't told there children about baby? When do you plan on telling them? I don't know what to do. I was going to tell them on Tuesday after scan but I don't know if I'm ready for the world to know yet because I know they will tell everyone!

Karoolia, amazing that you heard the HB!

Kirsty, glad everything seems to have settled down for you.

Sweetkat, yay for a good scan!

When I was pregnant before we were going to tell her when I had my 12 week scan. Now I feel like I want to keep it a secret for as long as possible so won't say until either 20 week scan or until she asks why I'm getting fat again. She commented on it last week, bloat has a lot of answer for!

Good luck for everyone having scans this week. Mine's Thursday even though I'm only 6 weeks today.

We don't have kids, but we aren't even planning to tell our parents for another couple of weeks and honestly I probably would have waited a few more, but since we'll be home I feel like we'd be missing our chance if we didn't tell them in person. If I had kids I would probably wait as long as possible. I know, I would have spilled the beans as a child for sure. Actually I remember telling everyone I saw that my mom was pregnant, but I suspect the secret was out by the time they told me.

Do you ladies just buy your dopplers in a store or online? The one we used yesterday is from my husband's family practice clinic and has to go back. I wouldn't mind having one at home if they are easy enough to find and buy. Do you know if the quality is the same as the ones doctors/midwives use?

My eldest knows but then he's almost 12 so he knew something was up when I started throwing up multiple times a day. I could have lied but it didn't seem right and as I have a history of blood clots in pregnancy and im on blood thinners, should there be an emergency or accident then he can call for help and advise them of the situation. My youngest two are too young too know what's going on. We asked my almost two year old if she would like another baby and she said 'no dinosaur'. She still thinks her baby brother is a cat so I'm not sure how much she will grasp of this

I bought my Doppler when I was in university doing my midwife training as it was part of the kit we needed but most people I know in real life and on here use sonoline. You could ask for recommdations on the first tri forum?
