Gaiagirl - good luck for today I'm looking forward to hearing about it later, although I might have to wait until tomorrow due to the stupid time difference!
I haven't bought a thing for LO yet. We haven't really been shopping for baby things yet so I haven't been tempted so far! Think I'm going to wait until we know the sex before I make any purchases. Not that I'm going to go completely pink/blue, but I'd still like to have a better idea of LO before I choose anything. MIL bought an all in one suit (romper suit? This is how clueless I am when it comes to baby things!!) because it was in the M&S sale. It's plain white. I've yet to see it as she doesn't live near. They're coming over on Sunday so she might bring it then... I think I'm going to like having it to look at
Is anyone in the UK planning on going to or have previously been to the Baby Show? There's one on fairly near me in May and I'd quite like to go. You do have to pay to get in though so hopefully discounts and show deals would make up for having to pay to see the stuff. I'm going to ask my mum and sister if they want to go as DH will be in AUSTRALIA then!! He's going for 2 weeks with work. I've said it's ok as it's a great opportunity for him but it's not going to be nice for me!
I've felt a few more movements today and yesterday And my tummy feels as if it's really getting streched at the moment. Which I know is only going to get worse But sometimes it honestly feels like I can't stand up straight because my tummy's too tight.
Thanks ladies, it was surprisingly hard to find a photo of a turtle AND some actual seaweed that didn't just look weird
I finally acknowledged my pregnancy on facebook! It's been nagging at me for a while so I'm glad I finally did it. I posted this link http://www.newscientist.com/article/...hild-uhoh.html with the caption, "(DH), we may be in for trouble " Pretty subtle, but people are slowly catching on!
BTW I'm now totally sure that what I've been feeling is baby...if you're not sure, try poking at your uterus when you feel something! Baby kicked back I don't think gas would do that!
Hi Ladies! Heard the heartbeat (a perfect 160 BMP) and saw the little olive/prune!
Unfortunately didn't get a pic, as it was just an informal scan by my midwife and her machine doesnt have the best resolution or a printer. We saw the baby very briefly and not very clearly, but it was definitely in there!
I am surprised by how not 100% relieved I am. I mean, I am relieved and happy and excited, but I STILL cant shake the worry. Jeez.
So glad you guys are starting to feel the LO...maybe in 8 weeks that will give me some relief too!
That's awesome gaiagirl!!!! I kind of know what you mean, every time I've heard the heartbeat or had a scan (or felt movement even!), I've thought, "Ok, so baby is all right FOR NOW." Sure, it doesn't mean you will 100% for sure be holding a healthy child in another 31 weeks. But it does mean your odds are really very good, and a lot better than you knew before you got this info.
Did they measure you? I assume since you didn't mention anything your EDD is not changing?
