Wonderful scan picture Kirsty! Thanks for sharing! It must have been wonderful to see baby moving around!!

As for sleep, I have been taking melatonin most nights. I know I shouldn't take anything I don't really need during pregnancy, but my doctor said there weren't any known adverse effects and if it allowed me to sleep then to go for it. I don't take it every night, but last night I definitely did. I don't sleep well when I'm worried and I knew I would need my sleep.

I feel terribly ill this morning. My morning sickness has come and gone since about 9 weeks and for the last few days seemed to have faded entirely. Today it came back with vengeance. I'm pretty sure it is mostly nerves, but ugh I had such a hard time getting out the door this morning.

I feel much more confident than last time, but as I said before it is like returning to the scene of the crime with all the original parties. It's hard not to feel nervous.

As for sex of the baby. I have been sort of feeling girl, but DH told me last night he thinks it is a boy. I could go either way. I would love a girl, but for some reason I find it much easier to think of boy names so part of me hopes for a boy for that reason. DH doesn't want to find out so we may be waiting a long time before we know.

Your scan pic looks good Kirsty. I even have a video from my private scan, although you can't see that much in it.

We are still on the train to the south of France, be there in less than an hour.

Karoolia, good luck for your scan.

Afm, because of panorama I am 99.9% certain it's a girl

Glad the scan went great kristy!!

I have my RN appointment tomorrow, but that'll be nothing but history taking and such, but I wonder if I'll be lucky enough to get another ultrasound before the anatomy scan, since I already had a dating scan at 6 weeks?? I don't know how this office works, so I'm just hoping I'll get another between that. I'm on the heavier side, so it'll be a while before I look pregnant and not just fat, but I can already feel my uterus bulging out over my pelvic bone, which is pretty exciting. Have you girls been having crazy cravings or aversions? Mine aren't consistently something but I'll crave THIS and then as soon as it's in front of my nose I'm like, NOPE and have to find something else. lol It's been driving me crazy because I feel like I'm wasting food lol

I have no cravings at all infact the total opposite! Nothing sounds good and I can only stomach bland food

Aw, kirsty, bloat or not, your bump is adorable! Is it bad that I have looked at your scan photo about a 100 times already. Such a perfect shot. You must be so happy and in love.

I get a bit of a bloat bump at night, but you can't tell during the day.

I don't think I'm really craving things either. Maybe a little bit of "everything, but *insert random food* will make me feel sick so I'll eat random food even though I'm not excited about it". Like bread and crackers. I thought I was craving ice cream a few times, but when I went to get some I immediately thought nope, I won't feel good if I touch that.

I'm the exact same darlingqueen. I want something like crazy but then the minute it's in front of me I usually puke. I have no appetite at all. I'm hoping it calms down soon.

Lovely bump Kirsty.

Kirst it is in less than a hour! I came home from work to meet DH. Just laying on the couch trying to stay calm.
