So if dated from 31st dec im 5weeks and 4 days, so due 7th october....

Im also gutted as a freind of mine had her scan at 7weeks today after pain..... and no hb... she now has to wait a week to go bk, but she said when they took the probe out it was covering in mucus and blood so doesnt sound too good

But what am i going to see?? i want to be prepared for what i may or may not see, i will be 6weeks and 6 days!! Advice plz people!!
I Wish you all luck and hopefully well ALL spend a happy 7-8months together xx
Welcome to all the new joiners. Love that our group is growing. I hope we get more ladies from the TTC group moving over soon.
Kizzyt - the nickname tink/tinker is so cute! I think it's normal for symptoms to come and go. My bbs stopped hurting for a day and I was worried but then the next day they were sore again. If it is really worrying you mention it to you midwife - all the more reason she should give you an early scan to help put your mind at ease
Grand - I didn't have any symptoms until about 6w2d when my bbs finally got sore. That's still my only symptom. I had sore stomach muscles for a week or so but that is gone now. I'm sure yours will kick in soon enough.
Anna - I agree! Doctors sure can make us stress. I've heard sooo many stories of things starting off slowly but then a week or two later things are compeltely normal. That's what I'm hoping for both of us! I feel like most women aren't monitored as closely as us and don't have such early scans so having a small gestational sac (like me) or an irregularly shaped yolk sac, like you, might be more common than we think ... My mom keeps reminding me of that everytime I talk to her..."I could have had a small gestational sac with you or your brother and never would have known about it. I only had one ultra sound during my whole pregnancy ... blah blah blah"
AFM- just counting down the hours till my appointment on Friday. The two weeks since my last scan have actually passed faster than I thought they would. I officially hit 8 weeks tomorrow so that's nice. My bbs have been a dull ache but today I've been getting shooting and burning pains so that's something new. My DH and I don't have a nickname yet but have been teasing that our baby is a slow starter
Welcome MellyBelle! I hope you are able to schedule an early scan, but I'd recommend waiting until 7 weeks, as at 6 weeks it might still be too early to see the bean. That's what happened to me and now I'm stressing about it!
RGN: Wow! 8 weeks already! I'll be at 7 weeks tomorrow - a blueberry!
Vixmar: Sorry to hear about your friend's situation. I hope the bean fights through it and she gets to see the heartbeat next week.
I hope your scan next week helps you to relax. I'm confident that you'll see your bean in the right place.
Kizzy: I'm always prodding at my boobs to 'make sure' they're still hurting! And I'm gassy and bloated as hell, too! I just tell my husband that if I held it in I would be hurting the baby!
Grand: the nickname will come naturally (see the rest of my post for a continuation of this). How are you feeling today?
It sounds like none of us have too many symptoms as of yet.
Besides the CONSTANT boob pain, my main symptoms today were serious bloating and a bad attitude - EVERYONE was pissing me off! Have you guys been grumpy or impatient at all? I mean, more so than usual...
I slipped on some ice walking home today and fell on my butt. I think I caught myself alright so it didn't hurt too much, but it did scare the shit out of me. I know that I'd have to fall pretty damn hard to do any damage to the little one, but of course I spent a couple of minutes fretting over it.
When I told my DH about falling he said, "Oh, I'm sure it's fine."
Is that what we're calling our unborn child?!?
So, I said that we needed to come up with a nickname for 'it'.
DH had called our angel bean 'the little builder', and suggested we continue the tradition with this one, but I was against it as 'little builder' was the only name he/she ever got.
So, I suggested 'the kid'; actually, I've had that in mind practically since day 1, but haven't said anything out of fear of getting too attached.
Here's the significance:
I've always had a boy's and a girl's name picked out - Sidney (boy) and Audrey (girl). They work in both English and French (DH is francophone) and Sidney was my paternal grandfather's name; also, my father grew up in Sydney. As for Audrey, well, I just love the name.
Now, here's where I begin to sound like the stereotypical Canadian:
Have you ever heard of Sidney Crosby? Well, he just happens to be the best hockey player in the NHL if not the world right now. He started his career when he was very young, earning himself the nickname 'Sid the Kid'.
My bean's name is now 'the kid'!
Take care of yourselves, ladies. It's a pleasure sharing this experience with you all.
: Have you guys been grumpy or impatient at all? I mean, more so than usual...
Um, yes. Grumpy and emotional. I work from home and our internet service provider had an outage in our area and it was down for a few hours this morning. I had a complete melt down becuase I had so much to do at work and really needed to be on email. I was so furious I was in tears for about a half hour. I completely overracted.
