Great news becs!

Mona, I've been reading Peter May's China thriller series, & as well as being good reads, they are fascinating for all the information about Chinese history & culture.

Ah Ladders, you would laugh - she keeps buying me leggings then adjusts them with elastic string so I can wear them throughout my whole pregnancy (because I can't buy prego pants?), hideous blouses, pjs, even got a teddy today, I mean what?

Squig, then you might have an idea of the marriage/parenting etc situations here. It sounds like an interesting read though, I will look into it!

Oh bless she's sounds so sweet and totally suffocating! We are not telling dh parents until after the 12 week scan as we told them early with our first pregnancy as I had to tell work and they went on about how it was so early and wished they didn't know till after 12 weeks, then weren't very supportive through the mc so since then iv thought sod them no saying anything till after 12 weeks

Ah I'm so sorry, that doesn't sound very nice. They wished they didn't know know that early wow. Then yeah, just let them know later this time... I guess we are both getting different extremes treatment from our in-laws. Why can't there be a middle ground...

Iím 8.5 weeks and continue to feel like garbage. Sigh. Constant nausea. DD and I have been visiting my parents while DH is on his business trip. And my mom had to go back to work today Plus their dogs woke me and DD up barking at 3am. She went right back to sleep but I was up for ages.

Hi ladies! Happy Monday. Only two days until my scan, I am going a bit crazy!!! Just because I can't picture what I'll see! I was reading reviews of my OB and apparently he has an 'older' ultrasound machine, whatever that means. I hope it's still goo enough to see the wee babe!!!

Mona, your MIL sounds so funny! Sweet but also a bit TOO MUCH haha.

We will tell my MIL at 12 weeks for so, but before we make a public/Facebook announcement. My mom already knows and my dad does too I think because my mom told him but I don't mention it to him hahaha. They know how paranoid I am.

I get random cramps, especially in the mornings when my bladder is full. That really seems to hurt!! It goes away when I pee. It's like my bladder is pushing on my uterus. I also get the 'full uterus feeling' and slight cramps when I am active in any way. I'm super duper sleepy as well and constantly nauseous.

Allie - I also have my scan in two days, but I will only be 6w5d.

Feeling less nauseous today which of course has me freaked out, but nothing I can other than wait. Spotting is also back after a two day hiatus. Oh the joys of first tri!

Ugh I was literally on my way out the door this afternoon to catch the bus for work when I started barfing -_- Luckily my employer is super understanding.

Nausea hasn't been terrible but it definitely comes in waves. It's the exhaustion I'm struggling with the most.

Excited to see everyone's scans!

Also sorry Ladders about your lame in-laws! Yeah just wait till 12 weeks, if they don't want to know it's their loss.

My parents know but DH's don't. They already have 6 grandkids so it's not going to be a huge life changer for them - and my sister in law said when they told them, DH's parents didn't really respect the 'don't say anything yet' rule, so I think we'll wait till end of November when 1st tri is done or almost done.

Mom15 - sorry the spotting came back - how annoying! I'm sure your scan will be reassuring, especially if they can find the source of the bleed - once you know it's nothing serious you'll be able to relax more!

Oh no Sander! What have you found helps the sickness, if anything? For me sleeping is the best cure.

Mom15, oh boo. I can't wait until we have our scans. I can't remember...are you in the US/Canada or UK?

Curious I hope you are hanging in there. Does the Diclectin work?

Allie I agree - the more sleep I get in the morning the less sick I feel. For some reason I couldn't sleep until 4am last night - I was just tossing and turning for hooooours, so I think the lack of sleep made it much worse this morning
