Awww, Panda she is gorgeous!!!! I hope we get to where you are without any trouble! I've got a friend who's had two miscarriages in the last 9 months, so I'm a bit scared about things going wrong. Just got to hope and pray and be good I guess! And come to think of it, my DH's first words when he saw the second line on the test was "oh sh1t". I'm pretty sure he meant it in a good way
JustMe, did I see on the other thread that your appointment in on the 9th? Lol! So weird! I wanted mine on that day but that's when the gynae is going on leave! We'll have lots of good news for this thread that week!!!
Mine is just a booking in appt. No scan or anything as hb isn't coming along (so any suggestions of scans or heartbeats will be refused!), scan will be end of august I imagine :-)
We're Nearly bump buddies, only a few weeks out!
Yay! I'm so so pleasled you started this thread! I'm still feeling completely lost in the first tri board and it's nearly time to move to 2nd tri! I think I remember feeling like this last time, but 2nnd tri boards were heap better.
I've missed you girls though! I've hardly been coming on BnB cos I had noone to talk to! hehe!
Plastik, I'm sooo pleased for you!! YAY!!!
I'm beginning to come out of the otherside of the utter exhaustion and sickness, still taking antisickness tablets though. I felt the first few flutters yesterday, can't wait for them to turn into proper little prods and pokes, and then kicks! When I first felt DD move inside me it was like someone was tickling me really gently. It made me jump a lot!! and giggle!
Agreed Iow. I tried moving to 3rd tri a week or so early because I found 2nd tri just stopped being relevant to me. But then 3rd tri is just "this is it" and "is this my plug?". They're fascinating to read but so far ahead of where I am. So I too feel in limbo, I never really found another group I wanted to chat with so much.
Dear lord, apparently yesterday I was HUNGRY and today I am HUNGRYYYYY too - am currently sitting at work wondering if I could possibly get away with phoning for some pizza delivery.... (cheese free and vegetarian so not TOO unhealthy...)
Nnngh, feel like I may have to eat a PERSON if I don't get something else soon! (and yet all I have right now is fruit - and some bread, I might try that...)
Apparently my poor hb has had food poisoning! We had the council on the phone yesterday working out where he had been before he got it so they could try and track the source!
Oh! AND I phoned the midwife to try and book a scan date and was absolutely refused. Was told that it could only be booked at my booking appt and if I couldn't make that date, to phone and change it. After explaining that hb needs a LOT of notice to get out of work, got a very snotty response of 'well it's all about your priorities isn't it'. Told her off for that as it has nothing to do with priorities, just work...! Plus I need notice as I see my boss once a week max, and as work doesn't yet know I am pg, I am not going to be giving this as a reason I need the time off...!
Do they seem like they're being unreasonable compared to other peoples experiences? Surely everyone can't be able to drop their life at 2 weeks notice to come to an appt? I am hoping that if it comes down to it, me refusing to come to a scan until hb can come to, will help make them more accomodating... ? :\
I think it's what you said, they literally expect you to drop everything. The scan appointment is for you, not your partner - at least that's the way they see it. My partner's work were quite understanding and let him take the mornings for the scan and work the hours missed back on other days. But they would have been within their rights to refuse or even refuse holiday at short notice. They have a rule at his place that you can't take holiday on the same day as anyone else as it's such a small department. I think it's disgusting personally, hardly putting families first, is it?
I had to tell my work at 6 weeks because of my scare, I work for my brother so I couldn't just fake an illness. But basically once you tell them you're entitled to take all appointments, so it might be easier, that is if you don't have any other reason not to tell them, to just say it.
As Iow said you could always try the hospital directly but they will want you to see the midwife first I think so she can "book" you in there. But once you have an appointment I'm fairly sure you could just change it and move it around.
