So I had my appointment. Was seen by a registrar instead of a consultant. She did do a very quick scan - there was a hb of 157 and the baby measured over 14 weeks. She wasn't a sonographer so she couldn't do more than that.

I have also got weird bites/ rash so they took blood and a swab to check it's not chickenpox (which I don't think it is but want to be safe). One worry after another. Will get the results next week and they promised to call me over the weekend if it's anything worrying.

Yay it is Friday!
Anyone have any plans? I am having parents over tonight for a quick dinner and then Saturday a friend is having a small pool party that we might drop in at.
Weather has finally cooled down so I am finally sleeping!!! Two days of great sleep, I feel awesome.

Well I am not consultant led and I never even saw one , as it was just a registrar. I asked several times whether I can book a reassurance scan for 2 weeks' time (as private scans are so expensive and I have already spent a fortune) but the registar said they don't normally do scans and also to go to EPU until 16 weeks as they will scan me. But the EPU gets annoyed with me and they also have trainee scanners who sometimes take half an hour to do what an expert sonographer would do quicker. So I don't know what to do now to get a scan

I have the 20 week scan but that's 11 October and I would most definitely like a couple of scans before then. So I might ask my midwife to refer me for a scan or my GP. They said after 18 weeks I can book reassurance scans with the maternal assessment unit (where I was seen today).

We are meeting out friends who have a daughter DD's age for a play date tomorrow. We see them almost every weekend and totally coincidentally our DDs are only two days apart in age

Our epu stop seeing you at 14 weeks so I'm really hoping I don't have anymore bleeds now

Our epu stop at 12 which I'm glad about as means my scans will be in the antenatal clinic now. Could you just go for a few scans in the epu. Even if it's just to see if baby is ok? I find just seeing baby's heart and it wriggling about is enough to get me through to the next scan.

We are just getting things ready for our daughters birthday this weekend. Her birthday is Wednesday. I'm excited but sad my baby girl is growing up.

Pretty sure I'm feeling a few baby wriggles. I'm so excited!

The EPU will only see me for under 2 weeks now as I am almost 15 weeks. I guess I might go towards the end of next week and see whether I can get a scan. And then I might get a private one at 16-17 weeks (depending on how paranoid I am). And then from 18 I can see maternal assessment unit....

It's hard being a paranoid madwoman

And my ticker says 180 days to go. That's soooooo long. It may get easier after the 20
Week scan.
