Hi ladies!

Amazing thread!! Sorry I've been MIA for ages, had a manic 10 days between work and DD dance show rehearsals! I'm exhausted! Finally got an evening to myself so I can catch up!!

Scan day tomorrow! Feeling nervous but glad it's at 09.20 so not too much waiting around! Midwife appointment isn't till the 30th though.

Cyclizine is keeping the ms at bay most of the time. I get this awful metallic taste in my mouth though which is making me feel worse. Also the bloating has been horrendous! I'm ok today but yesterday I was blown up like a balloon!!

So I've got a family christening in 4 weeks, I wasn't going to tell anyone until afterwards but I don't think I'm going to be able to hide it! This photo is of sucking in as much as poss! I'm only little, my family will easily be able to see!

Ah Emily lovely pic! It wouldn't let me open your msg at the moment but glad to see you here!

I'm nervous again about my scan and I've still got 4 says, it's driving me mad! I know there's nothing I can do but hope the week goes quick til Thursday when I'll be exactly 7 weeks
Scan is at 1pm but will have to leave just before 10:30

How is everyone?

star- I'm sure everything is fine but I can relate to your worry. I've relaxed a teeny but since seeing the heartbeat but still can't wait until my next scan to reassure me again!

Emily- Aw, you've got a bump! I'm also at the point where I can't suck in anymore. Still think mine is mostly bloat but either way it makes it hard to hide! 12 weeks will be a good times to share your news...

koj- Glad MS is letting up! Only a couple of days until you get to hear that little heartbeat again

october- When is your scan again?

AFM, I'm officially weaning off the PIO shots! Hoping my bloodwork looks good tomorrow so I can stay on the every other day thing. So much better!

Great news about no more pio shots scooby!
I think with dd the only time I relaxed was when I felt movement. For me that was at 21 weeks as my placenta was at the front so acted like a cushion, typical! Even then I was at maternity 3 tines for reduced movement but all was OK and think my placenta was just in the way

This time I'm hoping to feel movement earlier with it being the second and also hopefully my placenta will be in a different position

I'm feeling sick more often now and so so tired, please be good signs!

What a lovely bump Emily!!

star - being sick sucks but its so reassuring isn't it!! feeling kicks sound amazing

scooby - yay for less PIOs!!

afm - MS is back all of a sudden last night/today. I'm hoping it's a good sign and that we hear heartbeats on Wednesday. Yesterday was the first day in over 2 months that I did not have to poke myself with a needle!!

Koj - yay for being able to hear heartbeat! How many weeks will you be? Shame the ms is back but it's reassuring!

Star - with you on the tiredness! Just want to sleep all the time! Don't think the heat is helping though!

Scooby - how did the bloods go? Hope you can keep reducing the pio!

Afm - scan today was amazing. Could see arm and leg buds have formed too! Baby has changed so much already! Can't wait till next scan. Measuring 8w5d exactly what I thought

Ko, exciting for another scan on Wed, hope you're feeling OK, I'm feeling pretty rough with ms at the moment, haven't been sick but just came very close, got a sore throat and some kind of illness too which isn't help how I feel

Emily, great news on scan! I love it when you start to see arms and legs, soo cute
The heat is ridiculous, actually can't wait for it to be cold at the moment!

Koj - super awesome you were able to hear heartbeat! Best feeling ever, I'm sure.

Star - I have been super tired. Taking naps have seemed to help but super hard during the day.

Emily- the little bud is looking more human like. I'm sure that was exciting to see. My little scan look like a shrimp 🍤 haha

Afm, I'm 7 weeks and 3 days. Heartbeat measuring 157 bpm. My little munchkin was measuring and looking awesome. Unfortunately, I received awful news today but RE said not to stress but placed me on bedrest until next Tuesday. I have a tear in my placenta. I believe he said it was 1 cm and a clot behind it. He reassured me that everything would be fine but I had a nice cry. It's one worry after another

star- Aww, I can't wait to feel kicks. That must be amazing! Good luck on your scan tomorrow and I hope you feel better soon!

koj- Good luck today! I hope you hear a nice strong heartbeat. I'm sorry MS is back but hopefully it will be short-lived.

Emily- Well my progesterone dropped to 19, which is above their cutoff of 15 but still seems so low compared to where I was (30). So I'm not sure what they'll do. As much as I hate the shots I'll gladly stay on them for another couple of weeks to keep baby safe. I'm so happy about your wonderful scan! Perfect little bean.

October- Such a nice, strong heartbeat but how awful about the tear! I can't imagine how scary that must be. But just remember, your RE thinks it's going to be okay. So rest up and take good care of yourself. Hopefully this will resolve itself soon and the rest of your pregnancy will be smooth sailing!

Picked a doctor and booked an appointment for 7/7. They may not do a scan (bummer) but I will get to hear a heartbeat. Itching to see the baby again! Just hope all is well...

october - so sorry to hear about the placenta tear but if your doctor said it will all be ok, please try not to stress out (i know... easier said than done!!). thinking about you!!
