I know exactly how u feel JustMe! I'm also a bit freaked out. Every morning I get up and think "Are my bbs less sore today?" "What does it mean if they are?" I guess because I personally know of 4 different early miscarriages in the last year I'm more tense than I would be if I didn't know about them. My mom says that we might struggle to get pg (she did too), but once we ARE pg it sticks. I really hope she's right!!! I keep thinking well I'm past 5 weeks, maybe that's good, but then I read these threads in First Tri where poor laides have lost their little one's at 8 or 9 or 10 weeks! So I've stopped going into First Tri. It just freaks me out and being permanently nervous can't be good for the baby! So I'm just distracting myself with work and thinking about how to tell my sister over skype tonight. I also need to tell my riding instructor and then the whole stable yard will find out when I'm not riding. Would rather have had them in the dark until at least 12 weeks but its inevitable.
The beach sounds awesome JustMe! I could never live at the beach simply because the showjumping scene is most prominent where I live now (which I love!), but I adore going to the beach for holiday!
Pretty good weekend here. Our spare room finally looks more nursery than dumping ground. We still have some boxes to relocate but it doesn't seem like the impossible task it did a month ago. I have to say the house looks better from us getting rid of some of our junk. We both moved in together straight from living with our parents and so we just brought everything with us. Until now we've had a spare room to just fill and we've had space in the lounge to keep pretty much every book we've ever read etc. So with the LO on the way we've been forced into thinking about what we *really* need to keep. So much has gone in the bin. We've managed to sell old DVDs and some old games consoles. Books have gone in the garage or to a charity shop. It's looking so much better.
Unfortunately that's probably all we'll get done for the next few days because we need to go food shopping tonight, and it's Grandad's funeral tomorrow. So I can't see us touching it again until Wednesday at the earliest.
We also booked our 4D scan for Saturday morning. Super excited about that. I wonder if she'll have hair and who she'll look like? I just hope she plays along, she had been a bit naughty at previous appointments. She kept covering her face at the 20 week scan and at our last midwife appointment she kept kicking the doppler and moving away so they couldn't timer her heartbeat. It gave everyone a laugh but then, that wasn't costing us £100! I also have a slight fear they may have sexed her wrong. Not that we mind what sex the baby is, but people have started buying things. So if she has become a he then he's just going to have to be in touch with his girly side for the first few months.
As for MMC, the only thing I can say is that it does happen but from what I've read they are complete surprises and your symptoms won't necessarily change at all. So don't worry about it because not only is there nothing you can do.
I remember the scan at 12 weeks, I was terrified they'd tell me our LO was dead. I didn't feel pregnant at all when I went for the scan. Most symptoms had gone, including my nausea and exhaustion. The truth is your symptoms will change constantly and so just go with them. For example, every now and then I just get extremely tired. I'll get in from work and be in bed by 8pm, then sleep through. It's happened enough now that I always just presume LO is going through a growth spurt and I need to rest for her. But if I don't feel tired I don't worry, I enjoy it!
It's all come flooding back reading this just how scary the first tri forum was. Try not to worry though, as I say there's very little you can do. Just try and take care of yourself. Save your energy, eat well and take the vitamins. Also remember that with every week the risk of miscarriage declines significantly.
