Maxxi - try not to be nervous this is an exciting time.
Britt- good luck!!! I had no idea it was standard for moms over 30 in Canada to get that done. Do you find out right away?
thank you, yeah pretty standard and then an automatic after age 35. I am in Alberta though, and it seems like they have pretty good care for prenatal here. You can even opt for a first time c-section here and have it paid for... the only problem is a shortage of hospitals in Calgary.
yes, I have been told that the doctor will review the results with us right there. Its a specialized maternal/fetal medicine clinic in Calgary that does 12 week scans (there are 3 of them here). The blood work results will be in and with the u/s and can give you a 90% detection rate. Although its not guaranteed, the only thing that tells you definitively is an amnio. We will be given a risk factor and go from there.
gosh I hope its okay

I am nervous too hon, I think its normal
Besides those few days of bleeding/brown discharge I think everything is ok. I'm nervous that I'll go in and they won't find a heartbeat like happened the first time.
oh you poor thing, I understand your stress. I have had a wave of panic and sickness in the last 30 minutes that something will be wrong and I dont have MS! this is so hard hey ladies? one hurdle at a time
I will post more tomorrow but wanted to let you know we had an awesome day! Baby is perfect and actually measuring 13w1d (so big growing baby I got my risk assessment and I am completely negative for downs or chromosomal problems I think its like 1/5500 which is the highest that scale can be, so DH and I are thrilled.
The cute little monkey was wiggling around and even put its hand on his head a few times- too cute. I love him/her so much already it hurts.
I have attached a few pics for you
cant wait to hear of your scan Maxxi, I know it will be great
talk to you ladies soon
britt - i love love love your baby photos they moved me forward too! When's your edd now? mahoosive hugs hun x x x
maxxi - how'd do get on hun, thinking of you x x x
dilly - waiting sucks huh?! x x x sorry you're feeling the nausea gal, i have every empathy - that also sucks x x x
mama - good luck for tomorrow - you must be soooo excited x x x
mrs-g - i hear you with the mat leave!!!! ours is pretty crap moneywise, so i'm saving like crazy so i can have 6 months off x x x
AFM - was wishful thinking that i'd turned a corner feeling utter utter pants. i was on progynova (oestrogen 8 mg daily) and progesterone (800mg daily). On top of the nausea, my legs are constantly on fire with itchyness, and my nipples are dry and cracked and so painful. I ran all this past the midwife yesterday and she thinks i have a sensitivity to pregnancy hormones - bloody typical! I feel so gutted after everything we've been through to get here - i want to enjoy this pregnancy so much, but my body is just not letting me.
so, in my bid to fight this, i have calamine lotion for my legs, lanolin cream for my nipples, and am eating rice and bananas every two hours to try and keep on top of ms. I have two catnaps a day, and do my hair and make up everyday to try and feel nice (which is all well and good til after the catnap where i just look like i've been for a night out on the tiles...). Am hoping and praying that i don't feel this way throughout whole of pregnancy, but i have a sneaky feeling i might.
oh well, sorry for the down-post ladies, promise to be more chipper next time!
much love x x x
ps - hi blue good to see you hun x x x my first scan was at 6 weeks as i paid for a viability scan. Then i had my normal 8 week scan, and i've just had my 12 week one. Have you got one scheduled? x x x
heya ladies - have just updated the first post with a members list. If you could let me know your edd, i'll update it, and could you chose a colour you would like to be highlighted in Purple has already gone i'm afraid. If two ladies opt for the same colour, i shall take the first that posted
x x x
thank you ladies so much for the well wishes, ahh it is amazing hey.
I feel like the luckies women. Its funny I found out a huge deal is falling through for me, that would have set me up on mat leave and I didnt even care yesterday, I would take a healthy baby over all the money in the world.
MrsF- because I am pretty sure of when I ovulated I think they are going to leave my dates as is until the 18 week scan. They said it could just be a big growing baby... hee hee
I am excited for the upcoming scans for you ladies
I would like a teal blue colour if possible MrsF
(probably because I really think I am having a boy)
