RGN I'm thinking of you and sending you good vibes for your scan tomorrow.
I saw my family Dr. Today and he confirmed I am pregnant! Yippee, Positive test done this afternoon. I need that reassurance because I have no symptoms today. My first scan will be at 12 weeks. I don't have the date for that yet but it will be for IPS. I'm very excited. It's feeling a little more real now that I have the paper work for prenatal testing. He also gave me a prescription for medication in case I get bad nausea. He strongly recommended that I get the flu shot today so I did that and said DH has to get one too. I can't wait to start telling people but am going to wait.
As for a nickname for my belly I think for now it's going to be the fruits. So for this week it's me and the poppyseed. Hehe
RGN: I'll be cheering you on in spirit tomorrow. I know that you'll have a perfect-sized gestational sac with a perfect little bean inside. Please let us know how it went as soon as you can, and definitely post a picture of the scan if you get one!
Kizzy: I've been insanely thirsty from day 1. I just can't drink enough water, which is only making me run to the bathroom even more. My boobs are getting quite big as well! I'm naturally a B-cup, but I've quickly moved on to a C-cup and I'm already busting out it that!
I can understand your mixed feelings for your friend. Hopefully she realizes what a schmuck he is sooner rather than later and that it doesn't affect her baby dreams.
Grand: I had quite a bit of cramping in the first couple of weeks, which of course scared the hell out of me, but they've tapered off recently. I still get little pulls and pinches from time to time, but not like in weeks 4 and 5. Don't worry, you're fine!
Lisa: It's confirmed! How exciting!
What's with the flu shot? No one has said anything about that to me. I probably won't get it done either unless I'm strongly advised to do so by my doctor. I have an appointment for 'the talk' on the 25th, so maybe it'll come up then. Do you live in Quebec, too?
Mum: I hope your friend goes into labor naturally. Maybe this weekend??? What is a sweep? I'm clueless! I think I'll be in for quite a shock when this pregnancy really starts to develop. I can't even imagine feeling a baby kick inside of me, let alone feel it come out of my... I think I'm going to be sick.
Vixmar: How are you feeling today, hon? You must be so excited and nervous about your scan next week. I have my fingers crossed for you!
Melly: How are you feeling today? Any new symptoms to report?
AFM: I wasn't able to change my scan date to tomorrow as I'd hoped, so it looks like I'll have to wait until Monday afternoon to see the kid. I'm so nervous!
Hey Anna, My Dr. recommends the flu shot because pregnant women are more at risk of getting Influenza- the flu. And when they do they get sicker from it like an elderly person would and are often hospitalized because of it. Flu season is from Nov-April here. I'm in Ontario. So I wasn't sure I would get it but thought I don't want to risk getting very sick in my first trimester.
Oh I forgot I also have a Dr. apt in 2 weeks for a full physical and got a lot of blood tests done today.
hi everyone, just wanted to pop in quick but havent had chance to catch up properly.
rgn- sending lots of pma for tomorrow will be thinking of you.
lisa7- glad its all official now, yay
anna- sorry i do give tmi sometimes and i am about to give you more,lol. Basically the midwife sweeps her fingers round the cervix to try and start things off a little. hope that enlightens you and hope your weekend passes swiftly so you can see your little bean
Good luck and lots of baby dust to everyone testing this weekend, bring on the bfp's
Lisa7 - IT's OFFICIAL!!! Must feel nice and so real to get the ball rolling...your doctor sounds on top of it...what prenatal testing are you doing? I'm not getting the flu shot...is that bad of me??? I live in the S of France and it's not cold at all and I've never got the flu in my life (knocking very hard on wood as I write that LOL!)
Who else is getting the flu jab???
RGN - so glad your OH will be with you holding your hand...can't wait to hear what you see
Anna - I'm jealous...I want bigger BB's LOL! I'm a barely B - can't wait to have some real ones . Thanks for your reassurance about my cramping etc. - it's stopped now for the moment which makes me happy. Too bad you couldn't get your scan date changed but an extra couple days will allow "the kid" to grow more and hopefully you'll get a better image
Mum - Thanks for explaining "sweeping"...sounds um interesting Keep us up to date on how she's doing!
Glad to see lots of activity in here, seems like everyone's doing good and there's lots of PMA. Anna, I am with you, I cant even imagine it all!!
I am feeling quite rubbish today tbh, didnt sleep well, feel a bit coldy, sick, just rundown really, OH didnt want me to come to work because of my crappy commute so I planned to leave early and now someone's scheduled me in for a conf call at 4.30
