That's so good that you can go dan-o, does your gp refer you or can you self refer? I've ended up booking it at 6+3 as they are fully booked on the Wednesday!!! I don't know whether to go the following week so will be 7+3 but 3 weeks seems ages away!!! When do you think you will go for yours? xxx

I just self refer to EPU, they have handled 11/12 of my pregnancies, so I'm a familiar face there

Not sure, same dilemma as you.. 6w so early, just a dot.. but then waiting longer is torture!

coming back regarding team yellow, for anyone on the fence.

being team yellow was amazing! i am a huge planner, so it went against my nature completely. as for willpower, there was really only one moment at my anatomy scan when the tech asked, "are you *sure* you don't wanna know?" i said no and that was the end of it. the rest of the time it was "we aren't finding out and are super excited to find out once s/he's here!"

you can still plan a TON. all our "gender neutral" baby gear is reusable for baby #2 and there is plenty of time to add girly or boyish accents to a nursery or buy cute outfits. amazon prime for the win.

my feelings on nurseries are this: baby won't remember, you spend so much time there so YOU should enjoy the decor, and, most importantly, it will change once baby actually arrives and you realize what you actually need and don't need. our nursery "theme" was..."baby."

it seemed to annoy people that we didn't find out. "well how am i supposed to buy baby gifts?!" really? sorry my choices are somehow inconveniencing you. babies still need sheets, medicine, diapers, wipes, etc. but it was fun in a neener neener neener kind of way.

it also removed all pressure on the name front. i am the type that wants to meet/see baby before deciding. but i know there's a lot of pressure if you know the sex, and decide beforehand, people push for a name even if you've said you aren't telling. having a handful of name ideas and options and never picking anything for sure and not knowing avoids that pressure and unwanted opinions on name choices altogether.

the biggest thing for me on why i am team yellow again is it was great motivation in the last hours of labor. my husband would ask me what i thought it was and he'd distract me from contraction pain. and then the kicker: him finding out first and coming over to my side and saying, "it's a girl. we have a daughter," was an emotional amazing moment.

novel over.

Hello girls. Can I join in? I'm 5 weeks tomorrow. This is an IVF pregnancy. I'm suffering from something called OHSS and had some not so great betas early on. But I'm doing digitals and they're rising appropriately.

I have a scan at EPU a week Thursday at 6+1. I had a scan at 3+6 and a gestational sac was seen. Just praying everything is going to be ok.

Congratulations everyone.

If we get that far we will be finding out as it helps us bond with our baby. I struggle to believe I'm pregnant the whole way through and that we are having an actual baby. I didn't really believe it till my daughter was placed on me.

I had some spotting on Monday so I rang the epu and have a scan booked on Monday when I'll be 6+2 hoping to have a gorgeous pic to bring home with me but can't shake the feeling something could be wrong ��

Welcome and congratulations 4magpies! Can't believe you've been scanned already! Wow! Sounds like all is perfect!

Starsunshine, it's so common, bet all is perfect, glad you are getting a reassurance scan, not long until you can see you little bean!


I've had a slight wobble today as I don't feel sick today and only got 2-3 on a digi. I took it apart though and the lines didn't look right.. anyway will try again in a couple of days. I suppose technically I shouldn't get 3+ until past 5w (although I have before)
