I completely agree with the sleeping... it's just utter rubbish. Daughter is finally sleeping through the night but I'm not! Just either hot, uncomfortable, sick, sore, etc etc I haven't slept straight through the night since I got pregnant with my first!
Got up this morning, went downstairs to take my thyroid pill, took it with a glass of water and promptly threw everything up. Loads of water before the stomach bile started coming. I HATE vomiting bile. Not a great start to the day. I just ate a bowl of cereal and I'm praying it stays down. I've gotta get J to gymnastics and then I'm watching my friend's toddler until 4 too....

Ugh, sleep is the worst for me here too. I have trouble falling asleep despite being exhausted all day. Then I'm up all night to pee (2-3 times a night) or adjust the heat (I'm constantly boiling in my skin or absolutely frozen) and then I have a toddler who loves to wake up a lot suddenly. I feel like a zombie lately, and have no choice but to pass out for a nap along with my toddler.
Hopeful honey we both have our scans booked the same day! Maybe when you finish your scan we can compare notes
Libbysmum, I don't get a scan that day I had an early one because my last pregnancy (that I lost) had complications and I also ended up losing my right ovary and tube. So they had to scan to make sure it wasn't ectopic as I only have 'lucky left' now.
So my next scan is at 20 weeks to find out the gender. My next appointment with the doctor is on the 28th and I just want to hear the heartbeat to know our little one is okay.
Last night I had stretchy-feeling cramps. They were quite uncomfortable and I kept waking up with them. They feel a little better now that I've emptied my bladder but are still there. It's scary!
Sorry to hear so many of you are having trouble sleeping. I seem to be doing quite well at the moment and if anything, I am sleeping too much! I do wake up in the night to use the loo, but usually drop straight back to sleep. Hope you all get to catch up on your zzz soon.

Sounds rough, hope you feel better soon x

I agree!!! There were times I'd call in sick to work and end up sick just because I called in. So I learned not to lie about stuff like that.
I have a doc appt tomorrow. Will see if I get another scan but I doubt I will until 20 weeks. Either way I hope she tries to hear the heartbeat and gets to! Took my blood pressure again tonight and it was much better than last night! So I wonder if I was fighting something off yesterday. DS woke up with a sore throat. He has a horrible cough tonight so I might have to get out the nebulizer and give him a treatment to help him get rid of it.
OH is the best!! I came home with a huge body pillow on our bed with 3 bows on it and a tag that said To: "my Love"!! He's so sweet! I finally have a great body pillow!!! YAY!!!!!!
Hope the doc could hear the hb. Your hubby sounds lovely, thats really sweet of him.

It's too cold here to open up the windows and air the place out, so I hope at least by the time I get home from work it is much lessened! Guess I'll have to give it away to friends or freeze it up for when I can stand it again. I hope I didn't ruin it for myself!
On the plus side, I have a new (healthier than carbs!) craving: honeydew melon! It tasted amazing and I really had to hold myself back and just eat 2 slices instead of the entire melon like I wanted...I knew the only outcome to that indulgence would be to have quite the stomach ache. I've never considered eating anything close to an entire melon in one sitting-have no idea why that seems like a reasonable idea just because I'm pregnant!?! :-)
Oh no, what a shame!
Snap on the melon, I love eating melon at the moment too, and I could easily sit and eat a whole one. Just so lovely and sweet, and seems to help with the thirst I seem to have.

I have to wait until Dec 28th for my next app to see if the doppler picks up a heart beat. I'm so scared that there's nothing going on in there!
Glad I could help, its our first too. I know it does get worrying when you feel you dont have as many symptoms as everyone else. Guess we should count ourselves lucky

I dont' see the point in doing testing for my oh and I, because either way, we are having a baby. I'll go ballistic if I have to wait!! I'm not sleeping well due to nightmares, which doesn't help the already exhausted pregnancy feeling I've got going on.
We're also looking at a couple of bigger places to move to today. And we are on day 4 of my DD being sick with a 101.8-102.2 degree fever. I can keep it down with meds, but I can't get the thing to break. She's not sleeping much either, and OH works 12 hour shifts. We are one exhausted crummy feeling household at the moment. But with DD being home sick from school we have been working on her Christmas presents for her dad and his family. And got them done, I just have to make bows still. I adore ornament making
Hope everythings OK at the scan
Good luck with the househunting, hope you find something you like.

Today is our work holiday party, so there is free food from 11am-5:30pm. i wish i had a better appetite because i would love to eat everything!!
My doctor's appointment and scan is in a few hours i'm so excited to see if there is one or two little beans in there!!
Have fun at the party and good luck at the doctors.

I just had a tiny amount of pink tinged CM again. The MW will just tell me to go away again so as I have no cramps or anything I will just see how it goes.
Hope its nothing serious, sending lots of positive thoughts your way
Baby died today. The bleed had grown larger and ended up collapsing the baby's sac. So our baby was perfect and healthy and growing exactly as it should.. And the bleed killed it. I feel so utterly broken.
