dimmu - glad your morning sickness is feeling better! hope it keeps at bay. Congrats on your 3+! I had never heard of those tests until the recent threads. I may try to get some for later if I can find some that match my stage.

Today I felt strangely alright, which just made me a bit depressed, lol! I know it's silly since when you really ARE sick and can't concentrate on work/chores and it's hard to deal with the kids etc., it just really sucks! I feel like I should be productive as I can, before the sickness starts!

I have my scan tomorrow and I'm more than half expecting a negative result, but trying to stay positive. How are you struggling with it JJay?

For dimmu and others that struggle with snacks and tend to crave salty things (I hear you completely)... so I recently discovered Vegemite! I guess it's the Australian counterpart of Marmite. I often find myself spreading it thinly on rice crackers or toast with a bit of butter and/or sharp cheese

Yay Dimmu hurray for 3+!

Yes breastfeeding lost the weight for me too so I will do that again this time around. I am feeling similar to previous pregnancies too. Not sick but tired and nauseous and craving comfort food like bread and cheesey things rather than fruit and veg!

Exciting that you have your appointment this week and Eva has her scan

Has anyone considered the harmony/panorama test? This wasn't around when we had DD and DS so I didn't do any kind of screening. Now there is a non evasive test and I'm a few years older I am tempted, although it's very expensive.

Hi Eva, I think we posted at the same time! I will have everything crossed for you tomorrow. I am very nervous too especially as the scan will be in a 'bad news room' for me. I keep imagining the same will happen again but try to keep telling myself it's more likely to be OK than not. Even if the scan is fine I know I will still worry until the next one! If my scan on the 19th Dec goes well I think I will be able to relax more X

Good luck with you scan tomorrow eva, hope it all goes smoothly.

Jjay I've considered harmony/panorama but they are very costly, around £500 here in London. I think I would see first how things go in the 12 week scan.

Today has been a bit of a hit and miss, some nausea, vomited once this afternoon but managed to take DD out to the local park on a play date and got through that without feeling too bad, just a bit nauseous towards the end.

Dimmu - I did get some more first response tests. Compared them to my first set of tests . Interesting comparison. Good to hear the sea bands are helping with the sickness. Great news on your digi.

I found bf did help keep my weight under control and when I stopped I put on a lot of weight. This time round I do intend to be careful what I eat and try to start exercising as soon as I can after.

Good luck at the GP - do you need to make up your mind on hospitals this early?

Eva - Glad you had a good day. One of the joys of pregnancy, either suffering from symptoms or worrying about none! Good luck for your scan tomorrow, hope all is well.

I'm a big fan of Marmite too, yummy! I found some Marmite flavour babybel cheeses which were great!

Jjay - I thought the Harmony test was available on NHS but I cant find anything about it so maybe not? I did consider it for my last pregnancy and would consider this time if it is on NHS. The outcome wouldn't affect anything but it would be good to get prepared.

Miss B your line is so dark now you can hardly see the control line! Progression looks good!

Eva, how was your scan? Hope all was well.

The harmony/panorama tests are around £500 here too (I live in Northumberland) ive found an online one that's £340. They send you out a kit and you can pay around £15 at hospital for them to draw your blood then you send it off. I'm undecided yet, I'll probably see how the NT test goes first, I've not had one before so need to do some research on what's a good measurement.

Sorry you're still feeling sick Dimmu, I'm feeling a bit better today which makes me uneasy - I wish I good just enjoy the times where I've got a bit more energy!

Thank you ladies for your support and good wishes! The scan went well. I was dated at 6w5d (1 day later than I calculated). So - a temporary moment of relief!

JJay I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you too! That's harder it's the same room... yikes. At least I had a different building, different people. You are right though -- it's waaay more likely that everything is just OK

Marmite flavoured cheese? Nice Sorry about the vomiting, dimmu :-/

Hmm, thanks for bringing it up! I guess I should ask my doctor about it. It sounds like what I had done in Germany with my sons. It was covered, I think, with DS2 since I was 35... with DS1 I was 32 and I think I paid about 150 Euro to have it done along with the nuchal scan. I would do it again - but need to see what my options are here (cost-wise) in Australia.

Eva fab news on the scan! I will be similar when I go for mine on Monday. 7.1 by lmp but I ovulate late so maybe a couple of days behind that. What did you see on the scan?

Jjay - I didn’t realise how expensive the harmony test was. Think I might wait for the nt test too.

Glad you are feeling a bit better today.

Eva, fab news on the scan! How reassuring.

The insomnia seems to be the worst symptom for me. Getting very fed up of waking in the early hours and not being able to sleep.

Eva, that's great about the scan, yay! Hope you feel a bit more relaxed now. When will you be having your next scan?

Jjay that's quite a good deal for the harmony test, I've only seen them for £500. I will definitely wait until I have the results of the NT scan before making the decision. How are you feeling today?

Miss B that sounds awful. Do you suffer from insomnia anyway, or is it something linked to pregnancy only? Poor you, I hope you slept better last night.

Sorry for being so quiet yesterday, I had my worst day in terms of MS so far. Was sick twice before I even left for work, the commute was awful but managed to get through it, but was sick again as soon as I got to work. The whole morning was awful, the afternoon was ok and in the evening I was sick again. Exactly the same pattern as with my last pregnancy.

Today I feel better, I've only been sick once, and I'm armed with sandwiches and crackers so that I can keep eating to keep the nausea away.
