Due end of November. Definitely feel a small "firm" bump down below the less firm bump that I know is just fat!!
Not feeling sick at all so far, just a bit queasy if I'm hungry but no sickness, thankfully my mum says she didn't have any sickness with either me or my sister so I may be lucky!
My boobs have definitely grown - a lot.
Going to have to get a new bra soon . .. very soon as am so uncomfortable!!

Keep safe Novemeber babies

Post subject: First Scan 16 April...baby Due 4 Nov
Hi...Just got my NHS Scan date as this Wednesday 16 April..I am 11 weeks just...is this early for the main first scan? Has anyone had their scan around this many weeks and can you actually see something that looks like a baby?

I'm due November too (I'm in my 9th week). 22 November.. Got my 'booking in' date for 6 May. Have changed it to 7 May as I will be away. Will be about 12 weeks. On my letter (from Queen Charlotte's - anyone else going there?), it says there will not be a scan. I get one at 20-22 weeks. If I hadn't had that private early scan, due to worries about cramps, then I wouldn't be getting my first scan until I was 5 months gone. Can you believe it? It says you may get a scan if really necessary... it's just a letter they send to everyone.
I've been very hormonal the last few days and very depressed today. Been in bed all day, couldn't motivate myself to eat a proper breakfast or lunch, just had cheese on toast. I had shortbread for breakfast and crisps for lunch, how unhealthy is that? I feel very guilty.. had 2 tomatoes as well though...
Apart from the hormones, the cramps have gone now, bigger boobs, only slight queasiness now and again - don't all shoot me, I almost want morning sickness as I've heard it's a good sign..

I also have not had much morning sickness and i was also a bit worried as they do say it is a good sign but on the other hand im quite glad, did feel wee bit queezy at the start but it passed by about 7 weeks i also had an early scan due to cramping and spotting but i got another scan date in for the 2nd of May and got my first ante natal on the 16th april. xxx

you must be very excited for the next scan! I may go private again if they don't offer me one on 7th May.. I want to see him/her again!
When you had your early scan Susan, did they date the actual age of the baby or the date of the baby from the first day of your last period?
