Still no morning sickness for me, and the cramps have eased off mostly, although I had a strong bout of dizziness today and I can't make it past 3 pm without a nap in the afternoons. So far so good though! Hope you're all well - and I agree with the previous poster who said we should all be taking our prenatals - this is the most vital time for them!
Mscrow - have you had ur update call? All the luck in the world to you!
Whoever said they bled a little (a teaspoon amount) - try not to worry, thats very little blood. Remain calm
Thanks for the thoughts. I got called first thing today because my HCG was high enough for them to justify a scan. I went in after work and they were so super lovely. The scan showed an 8mm gestational sac and a 1mm yolk which they seemed happy with. The internal scanner I found somewhat hilarious for it's dildo like appearance but was amazed to be told it was might right ovary that produced the egg, both ovaries looked good and I had clearly had a lot of water today. Technology eh?
Fingers crossed for the next scan they've booked me in for on 4 August to check for a heart beat. She couldn't find a reason for the bleed and thought it might just have been further implantation bleeding. I hope she's right.
That scanner is funny isn't it - a big dildo with a condom on!!! So glad to hear that everything went well You can now relax a little and enjoy your pregnancy!
I haven't started any yet Just trying to eat healthily and am taking folic acid which I have been on since TTC - I can't afford to buy any until DH gets paid on the 29th cos Pregnacare round here are a tenner!!! :O
Try Tesco - I picked up some the other day. £4.50 a pack of 30 plus they are doing buy 2 get one free so you get 3 packs (90 tablets) for £9. Make sure you get the pregnacare original - they are much cheaper than the conception ones. I've been taking the conception ones for the last 6 months and they are so expensive compared to the original ones.
im off to my first midwife appointment in 20 mins! no idea what to expect, i dont think it will be my booking in appointment because im only 6 weeks but the receptionist did warn med it would take half an hour.
Ok so I have a question for you ladies..
My pregnancy vitamins has been making me sick.. Before I was preg with some brands of vitamins I used to get sick and shaky, I think I was allergic. So today I am finally starting to feel better after stopping them yesterday..
While I was on them.. they made me so sick I could hardly eat..
So what's better...
Eating and no vitamins
vitamins and no eating..???
Congrats Flaneuse so did you just see the sac that early? Got my scan on august 1st at 7 weeks... cant wait!
NJAngelAPN - Cant wiat for update on your appointment. do you think they will do a scan?
WudLuvabub - other ladies have complained of feeling ill on them too, and have tried other brands. But if vitimins in general make you ill i would say stop taking them. Then instead, eat real healthily and be aware of what veg gives you which vitimins. Also just take a folic acid pill a day - as thats the main one. If you cant even take them without being really ill then leafy greens contain lots of folic also try a glass of milk a day so you get your calcium.
*WELCOME TO ANY NEWBIES - IM ADDING YOU TO THE LIST!*
