I can hardly wait till my next scan.. I didn't get to see anything at my first U/S because I was only 6 weeks and I have never heard the heart beat either because at my last MW appt. I was only 10 weeks and the doppler couldn't pick anything up.
I have my next MW appt on Monday so I am sure I will be to here the HB then
43 1/2 years young with a 3 year old and hopefully a sticky jelly bean in the oven - 2 years, 2 losses and a few chemicals and this one feels good so far.
Can't wait for that first hospital appointment - I am thinking of making a t shirt that says no shit sherlock I am well aware of my age!!!! or something like that with regards to AMA - cannot tell you the number of times I heard it with my son!!!!
Scan around the 5th or 6th December ish due date according to O day and FF is 21st July going by LMP is 23rd July. Hoping for the latter would prefer a Leo over a Cancerian!!!
Miss-C, welcome and congratulations, I hate the AMA term!! They say it to me as if I don't know that I am 39. Duh!! I love the t-shirt idea.
future_numan, My oldest son is 20 and my youngest is 17. I think it is rude when people tell me "You know you are starting over." Umm, after 17 years yes I know things are different and yes I know this child will be almost an only child. I am aware of all this. I have even had people to ask "What were you thinking?"
I'm here ...... I'm 42 on 4th December and waiting for our first LO to arrive, a girl due 14 due 14th January 2012. Highly likely to be Ava Sophia but still toying with middle names although DF is now adamant it is definately Ava.
I've managed to get myself growth scans every 2-3 weeks Not that there's any real concern, we just ended up under the consultant due to uncertainty with her heart and referred to the fetal heart unit but everything came back fine after a very tense week of waiting. The consultant called us back for a review after we got the results and just said 'ah, we'll keep seeing you, just because we can really!'
Last scan was yesterday and head circum is spot on, abdomen is 1 week ahead and femur length is ..... just short of 3 weeks ahead!! not surprising really when I'm 5ft 8 and DF is 6ft 5 I suppose. Just get today over with then only 4 more weeks to matt leave, finally.
Congratulations and a happy and healthy 9 months to you all.
