i found out the sex with my first but then we didn't with the 2nd but that was only because she wouldn't show us! I think this time if its obvious at the 20 weeks scan then we'll fid out but if baby isn;t co-operating then we'llleave it and be team yellow again!!!
I'm deffo finding out, just because I LOVE prepping for the baby the best I can before he or she gets there, and really don't care for nutral colors. And I wanna buy his or her clothes as soon as I can, because those first 4-6 months it's really hard getting out and about with them.
&& I have no idea what they check with my blood?? I know HCG levels, and probably to make sure you don't have some sort of STD I really don't know!? I prob should have asked... Lol. I'll ask at my first appointment. I have a class they booked me for to learn all the different tests they can do for you and your baby soon. I didn't do it with my last pregnancy... might not do it again this time.
I'm glad we didn't get to know the sex last time cause I'd have gone mad with the girl baby clothes and we'd have ended up bankrupt before she'd arrived with a load of clothes she probably would never have worn!!!!!
Last year I was out at then boxing day sales with Ailsa, she was 6 weeks old, I'd had a c-section and we were under about 3 foot of snow!!!!
Sooo!! What are your symptoms today!?
I think mine are slowly but surely coming back!
I'm getting a cold again like I did when I first got preggo.
Headache, tons of gas, peeing tons, and I'm sooo EXHAUSTED!
Yesterday I was feeling faint even when just sitting down... it was a bit scary.
Today I had a little scare, because I live on the 3rd floor in my Apartment Building, and I was playing with Alexa by trying to help her climb the stairs, eventually I just picked her up and went up the rest of the stairs. And when I got into the house I had one massive shooting pain go sort of like in and up my uterus. It stopped me in my tracks, it was followed by another one, but it wasn't as painful.
Hope I didn't do anything to baby while playing and carrying little one.
not really many symptoms here - bit queasy in the mornings but trying to combat that with tea and ginger biccies brought to me in bed by hubby! I get tired in the afternoons and then start gettign dizzy if I stand up too quick!! And my nipples are sooooo sensitive and pointy, i could cut glass with them!!!!!
symtoms for me today arent so bad ... felt sicky this morning but have managed some lunch and feeling better now - am sure i will feel tired mid afternoon again am planning on icing my christmas cake and make mince pies today after attempting to get some shopping.
oh and the backache i was suffering with from around time AF was due seems to be better today!
I've never suffered with actual morning sickness before - just a queasyness made worse by certain smells - with DS it was tomato and with DD it was Vanilla!!! Haven't discovered what it is this time yet!!!
Backache yesterday completely gone today, but tingly boobs went yesterday and back today! No sickness, just tiredness.
Great news is that absolutely no more spotting
I still keep peeing on tests though to see if they are darker and wished I hadn't today as it was a bit lighter and yesterdays was really-dark - so that's it I have forbidden myself to do anymore and it isn't good for my sanity!!!
Scan on Monday but I think I will only be 5+4 so too early for a heartbeat really I think so not sure how conclusive it will be
Katrina - no m/s yet here ... I say yet as with my dd I had it constantly from the moment I woke till I went to sleep at night andended up in hospital. I am praying I dont get it the same this time but I think it really kicks in around 6 - 7 weeks so I guess it will hit me over christmas if its going to.
Had my usual tiredness this afternoon and now feeling off food again tonight will prob just have an egg for dinner again!
