Ooo, I'm 30..I wonder if they'll do the same here with the Downs testing...what do they do? Is it just looking for the fold thingy on the scan?

I'm going to contact the MW on monday and get all that sorted. I don't think i'll push for and early scan now theyv'e sent the dating scan through, tbh I haven't got the energy..like you, i'm just pooped constantly Confused I really try and get off my arse to do something but i'm just worn out by the time i've stood up lol
I'll be glad when Olivers back at school this week and i can get some work done.

I knew my mum would be pleased..can't wait to tell my dad, the hard man that he is I reckon he'll shed a wee tear Laughing He saw what I went through with ectopic so he knows how much we want this Smile

I'm not sure exactly what they'll do but she said that they would be looking for the same markers that they usually look for in the 20wk scan like measuring the fluid at the back of the neck and stuff...i've got loads of leaflets that she gave me so it may be on one of those.

Also, even though i gave consent on the form for them to do these checks at the dating scan she told me that a MW would ring to confirm this with me (and she did). I thought it was a bit odd that i needed to say yes to both of them but 'hey ho'.

It seems to make it a bit scarier that they think you're in more of an at risk category once you're over 30 now. I was 31 when i had Elijah and that was only 2 years ago but they didn't do this then Confused

As for the tiredness, i'm even scared to sit down incase i drop off Smile and i'm counting down the hours til Monday morning when instead of 4 kids at home i'll just have 1 Very Happy Very Happy

hi girls!

I am very cautiously joining you! after 4mc and 2 chemical pg's i am very nervous to say the least!!

I have had bloods which look good and i will get a scan at 7 weeks and every two weeks after that!

Just praying for more symptoms right now! i have very sore boobs and eating loads but thats it so far!

zeebs so sorry you have been through all of this!! can you pay for a private one to put your mind at rest.

Massive congrats again to all the other girlies Very Happy xx

Scotchmist, i've got everything crossed for you that you get ur BFP tomorrow Very Happy but like zeeb said i'd have done a home test by now, even the cheap ones would show up now ur late??

Elp1 Massive congrats hun Smile Smile and i'm glad they're giving you 2weekly scans that must be really reassuring. Try not to worry too much about the lack of symptoms as i'm in the same boat, the only one i have is that i'm really,really tired all the time Sad
(I'm sure in a few weeks we'll be moaning about how sick we feel Wink )

I worte a really log reply to this earlier on my ipod and then it went off at the last minute Rolling Eyes Mad

Anyhoo, the jist was ELP, I'm so glad you've joined the club. I'm so sorry about your previous pregnancies and as 3girliesandababyboy said..i hope the scans offer you some reassurance Smile I think there are a few of us that have been through the mill with previous pregnancies and losses so its always nice to have that support. I can totally sympathise with your worries..and I know I could say it till i'm blue but try not to worry chick.

About my scan, I couldn't really afford a private scan Sad I'm going to ring the MW tomorrow and get sorted with them but to be honest by the time they sort out all the referrals for and 'early' scan..i'd be due for my dating scan anyway Rolling Eyes Its ok, what will be, will be. I feel well in myself and very pregnant Razz so I'm just trying to relax as much as possible.

So...this week end the constipation has well and truely kicked in Embarassed Shocked ...I thought i'd have a few weeks grace tbh..I was 9wk before I got it with Oliver. Anyhoo, i'm eating loads of ruffage and drinking plenty but still nothing and i'm so bloated with it. Anyone have any tips Please

Thanks girls!

I don't think it has sunk in yet - and I have no symptoms either other than a hint of heart burn, but nothing major. I think I will enjoy it whilst it lasts... i remember hating the exhaustion and symptoms last time ( I had them until 22 weeks, and at 24 weeks I developed AND so pregnancy wasn't much fun).

When do you all go to the doctors / tell the midwives? i cannot remember what I did last time.

Congrates maisiemoos - you are a day before me Smile and my little girl is 2 years and 2 1/2 months so not much between them either!

Although my user name is short, unlike Simone's, please feel free to call me Jen!

xx
