awwwww thank you Anna, but i do think taking each day is the best way!
Hi Linzi,your due 1 day after me yay!!! (i think i remember you from before) take care.
Hi Janet, in my last pg I had scans at 5 wks, 7 wks, 9 wks and 13 wks, the earliest you can see the heartbeat is at 4 half weeks, but even before that they can do an internal one and see the sac etc etc (hope that helps?)
Im already showing (i did last time too at 5-6 wks), i look like 12 wks but am 7 wks lol ive been told its cus im only 4ft 9ins and my husband is 6ft 4ins ....hehehehehe
Eggbert is a cool name,last time we called my bump a proper name and we kept that name when we burried her, so were using nemo this time as im small and a redhead and so is my lil nemo........sticky baby dust to us allxxxx

I am causiouly positive today as I did another test (yes yes yes I know I should stop) and this one was a tesco's one and nearly as dark as the control line. I think Eggbert is happy and that makes me happy...LOL.
Welcome Linzi and I hope you are feeling a bit better as Gaz told us that you were feeling very tired.
Redwolf I don't know if it is true that you can see the heartbeat at 4 1/2 weeks I am sure it was 6 weeks with my daughter when I saw her heartbeat for the first time but I can be misstaken. I am so sorry you had to say goodbye to your lil girl I so understand how you must feel now but try and be positive.
Jannette I am a curvy lady too and at the moment only eating crisps and bad food. Try and eat veg but just don't seem to be in the mood for them. I put on nearly 4 stone on with my daughter hopefully I can keep the weight normal this time.
Sticky vibes to all.

Thank you for the nice words Anna, im staying positive and will be even more positive once i get past the 16 wk point.... and thats when il be telling all my friends and other family.
Its funny last time i craved bad stuff (chicken fried rice was a favourite) but this time i seem to be liking fruit esp melon lol....
I think everybody is sooooo different and the heartbeats will be different too,my husband and i and the person who does the scan saw the heartbeat at 5 wks with my last pg...... but it doesnt matter as long as our beans/nemos and eggberts are well xxx
We will have to make sure that we come on here at least weekly and be support for each other, i sooooooooooooooo wanna tell my friends but we have said not till past 16wks rollon then (as it will be nearly xmas lol)

Red I craved grapefruits and soure worms with my daughter but that was from about 9 weeks onwards. I also could not stop hoovering the curtains, had to do it at least twice a day. Last month I was craving for red meat......really strange as I don't really like red meat. This time I am eating a lot of salty things.
Hey what are your views on the swine flu jab??? Are you going to get one or not?
Posted: Thu Oct 15, 2009 1:56 pm
LOL you have just reminded me what i was like last time..... i was eating meat as if it was going out of fashion,packs of ham and chicken, even started drinking tea and i dont drink hot drinks!!!
Im happy with the fruit cravings at the mo lol xxxx
I will probably leave getting the swine flu jab till after 12 weeks as all the organs are developed by then! But it will be something that i will discuss in depth with the midwife on Tuesday xxxx
Hows your views on the jab??
Did you go and get a clearblue digital dater??
Posted: Thu Oct 15, 2009 5:00 pm
Have not thought about the jab yet but that is a good idea to discuss it with the midwife. I see her on Wednesday if everything goes ok. Having lower back pains and some cramps at the moment.... I am sure its nothing to worry about but still do a little.
I have indeed bought the Clearblue dater thingy but they are in the post so have to wait till tomorrow.

Janet I will have everything crossed for you tomorrow that al is ok and that your bleeding stops.
Try and relax and have an early night. I know its easier said than done but if you worry that does not help.

man, this post is getting crazy long already - where will we be in 7 months?! To belatedly answer your questions....I'm about 6+1 now, tired grumpy and full of wee it's my first pregnancy so a bit nerve wracking
I've been to the gp and waiting for a booking appointment with the midwife then scan but it all seems soooooooooo far away cant wait til the end of november really so i can chill out a bit - I'm sure everyone feels the same

Mari our right the post is very long already!!!
Glad you have found out how far you are, good luck and sticky bean dust to you.
Well ladies i had my first out of control crying fit last night......i dont know why it happened i was on the phone and the person was being nice and lovely and i just started crying and couldnt stop.....i was soooooooo embaressed and just apologised
Anybody else had things happen that the cant control.
I was talking to m husband last night about the tickers and we have decided that im going to add one once nemo gets pass 16 weeks due to m mc around that time last time,so just before xmas hopefully I will be adding a ticker xxxxxx
Take care all,
Posted: Fri Oct 16, 2009 9:47 am
That is very understandable and I did think about waiting to put my ticker on but then my husband said stop being so negative and just be happy you are pregnant and donít expect the worst.....what will be will be. Mind you I was only just gone 5 weeks and to be honest I donít think as traumatic as your mc Red. I think I would def do the same in your case.
Janet how are you today? Have you stopped spotting and did you go for a scan? I am thinking of you hun and keeping everything crossed.
We do the sore bb go down and has anybody very low back ache. My bbís are still sore but not as sore as they have been. I really hate this as I really feel that every change means another MC......Right I NEED to RELAX!!! (I am shouting this to myself now).....GRRRRRRRRRRRR. What did you say Red about being out of control???? I am soooooo angry now with me and I need a good cry......let me see where I can hide and cry!!!
Anybody going mad for worry???
Sticky vibes, dust, everything we need to keep these beans stick, nemos swimming and eggberts from breaking!!!!!!!
