Lol, hey a sale is a sale! That's great to feel confident and buying or not doesn't change anything, so people who worry about 'jinxing' are being silly. We haven't bought anything yet but it's more because we haven't really been in a situation where we wanted to!

I think if we see the bean Tues and all is well and healthy I will make a couple purchased soon! I'm SO exited to!

Im hoping I can get an ultra sound when I go in for my 10 week appointment. My friend was telling me that they wont. She said that we could more than likely only get one. I have no idea where to look to see if my insurance will cover it or not.

Hmmm, we only get offered two here. A dating one in first Tri and then an anatomy scan at 18-20 weeks.

Maybe if you say you aren't sure of your dates? I actually refused that one but my midwife is giving me an unofficial peek because I want to hear the heartbeat so badly! I don't think most places would do that though...

Morning Lovely ladies!

Hope you all had a good weekend!!

Seaweed - That's so cute you're feeling baby lots! Part of me is now thinking I must have imagined what I felt on Friday night! Hoping to feel something again soon!! Fantastic news on the test results How was the rest of your holiday, has the sunburn calmed down?

Gaiagirl - Glad you felt better and had a nice walk! Are you not having any screening tests out of personal choice or it's just not offered where you are?

Hanyou - Ohh exciting!! What travel system did you buy?

DH and I went to a baby store and played I mean tried out lots of prams and car seats lots of fun! I didn't think my car had Isofix points but found out it did so we are probably going to go for this car seat http://www.amazon.co.uk/Maxi-Cosi-Ca...=1WRRJE85S9YNB

In terms of prams I like the Baby Style Oyster but want to test out the iCandy! We saw a Bugaboo and really not sure what all the fuss is about!!

Have a great day!

http://www.amazon.com/Safety-1st-Sau...375468&sr=8-10

We got that one. Its a safety 1st saunter travel system. It is that color I believe. We tried to get one that was pretty unisex. It was really nice when we played with it and it was on sale for $130 here.

Feeling pretty sick today. I keep feeling like I want to vomit. I need to try to eat something before I go to work, but I really just dont want to eat at all. This is the one part of pregnancy I knew I would have a hard time with was the nausea. I can't stand feeling nauseous.

Happy Monday (yah right, lol),

Ugh teaching and morning sickness do NOT go hand in hand! At least this weekend is 4 days!

All I can think about is seeing baby tomorrow, I am so freaking nervous!!!

They offer a blood test at 11 and 15 weeks and use the two results for genetic screening but we are declining. We have no risk factors and I just really dont think it is helpful to know. I wouldn't do an amniocentesis and I wouldn't terminate (especially considering you don't know until 20 weeks). I get the preparing yourself thing but the risk of false positives is high and I can't imagine being stressed and miserable for the remainder of the pregnancy...anyways, I am not worried I think our baby is going to be perfect (haha, doesn't every parent?)!

I understand that, gaiagirl, and I know other couples who have declined testing for the same reasons. I think if you know that to you personally it isn't worth the value, then it's great not to put yourself through the worry.

Thanks smawfl, the sunburn has definitely calmed down but now it's just itchy. Between that and pregnancy-related itches I kind of feel like scratching my entire skin off trying to keep it under control with moisturizers and vitamin oil!

Definitely, and also I should have mentioned that MOST people I know here do not do the testing. It might just be a difference in how they present the options here? I don't know, but most of my friends have declined as well...

Glad you arent too burnt! I was going to say, when I was on birth control pills I burnt like nobody's business. It's the hormones, as soon as I came off the pill I was fine and back to my pre-pill tanning. It was bizarre though, I remember one summer day I was at the beach with friends and applied and reapplied more than anyone else...but at the end of the day I was a LOBSTER and no one else was even pink!
