    Had first scan today confirmed my preganancy is really happenin. Had to have internal scan, it didn't hurt a bit. Saw little tadpole & heart was beating strong. So happy I cried. I can believe it's happening now. I'm 6 weeks & 6 days & my due date is 14th June 2006. Gonna try & take each day at a time. I have my first visit 21/11 & another scan at 12 weeks on 30/11. They're keepn an eye on me.

    Hello Lorrie

    I am so pleased for you!! I can't wait to have my scan and to know that everything is alright with my bean too. I had my appointment with the midwife today, so the next step will be to have the scan - just got to wait for the appointment to come through the letterbox.

    Hi Rach

    Our computer got a freaded virus so have been out of action!!!

    The appointment was fine - filled all the paperwork out, midwife took my bloods and a urine sample, she felt my tummy because of the query with when I conceived, she thinks that I am 6 weeks ish, but couldn't say for sure so is going to try and get me a scan soonish!!! It's all so exciting.

    I have got my tummy button pierced and asked midwife when she thought that I should remove it, she suggested that I buy one of the plastic ones which are advertised on this site - not sure what to do or when to change it if I am going too, any advice?!!!

    Right, off to cook our tea now, am so hungry today, my bean must be taking too much from me - unless I am just greedy!!!!!

    Am going to snuggle up tonight with my orange jelly (got an obsession with everything orange flavoured!!) and watch the TV awards, even though I know who has won everything.

    How did your appointment go today hun, was thinking about you while I was at work.

    Take care
    Xxx

    Hi Lorrie

    I totally understand, I had a day at the beginning of the week without any symptoms and said to my mum "I don't think I am pg anymore" she just laughed and told me that I was being silly, my dad says that I am not happy if I am not worrying - which is kinda true!!!! that and wishing my life away - I am always looking forward to something - next thing is my scan - then Christmas!!!!

    It is such a worrying time for us, I am sure we will be much happier once we have got over the first 12 weeks. I hope you are feeling yucky today to put your mind at rest, gosh that sounds awful of me, but you know what I mean :)

    Have a good day, catch you later

    Hi Lyndesy,

    On reading your post I just wanted to answer you re bleey button bar question.

    I have mine pierced and at 13 weeks I am already getting a bump I have just ordered a retainer bar and would recomend changing it when you notice that there isnt as much leaway as before mine is definitly due to be changed as the ball is starting to push into my skin :lol: which is nice.

    Hope all goes well in your pregnancy

    Sarah

    Hi Sarah

    Thankyou for your advice, think I will order myself a retainer bar too. Didn't want to have to let the hole close up - prob be too chicken to get it done again!!

    Just noticed that you partner is 3 years younger than you - I am 28 and my DH is 25 so snap!! Toyboys are great aren't they?!! :)

    Thanks again

    Hi Rach

    well which bar did you go for, I can't make my mind up over 2, I like the pink flower one and the blue swirls one - choices cholices, oh and I don't know which size to get, the one I am wearning is a 12, can you help????

    I had an awful night last night, felt terrible and was actually sick (first time have been sick) but feel ok this morning so phewy!!! I am off to get my hair done this morning, I love getting my hair done. DH is taking me out for a meal tonight so it won't be a waste of a hairdo either!!!

    It's my grandmas birthday today so I will call in on my home from town with her card and pressie. Really find it hnard to buy for grandparents, I bought her Love Actually on DVD in the end (it was on offer!!!) and thought that she could watch it now that the nights are getting darker, she's on her own so at least it will occupy her and if it doesn't I will have it back cos it's a brill film!!!!!

    Have a good weekend, hope you are feeling ok.

    hi lindsay the one im wearing at the moment is 8mm so i ordered a 10mm in the glitter one in purple and i also got a 12mm in the black and orange flame one :D did look at the sizing guide on there cant remember if it said buy 4 sizes bigger then the one you wear now or 4mm bigger lol but they dont take long to come apparently so if the 12mm starts looking like its getting too tight will just order another one

    hope you all have a good weekend my nausea dont seem so bad last couple days so am hoping might be coming to the end but have had a bit of indegestion not quite as tired as i have been either so fingers crossed my symptoms might be on way out lol xxxxxx

    Hi there how you all doing?
    I had about three days of no symptoms so I ended up at outpatients at local maternity hosp Fri morning in a panic. They scanned me again & eventually saw heartbeat so all ok.
    neednt have worried because I had an awful day to make up for it yesterdday. Thought Iwas goin to get sick before I went to bed last nite but it passed & I slept through it. Much better today not great with food though dont know what to be eatn.
    Is it this Thurs coming you have scan Rachel?
    How r u Lindsay?
    I dont have a belly button piercing, bit squeamish - labour should be fun :lol:

    Hi Lorrie

    I seem to be having the weekend of hell with symptoms. Friday I was actually sick, yesterday and today feel rubbish, but its all part and parcel eh?

    I am struggling to sleep, am waking up in the early hours and lying awake, which is possibly making me feel worse during the day. Any advice as to how I can stay asleep!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am pleased that all is well with you, its such a worrying time at the moment for us all.

    Thanks Rach

    I said to DH today that I can't remember the last time I felt normal - I am sorry to be a moaner, I really wouldn't change being PG and feeling rotten, I can't wait to get to the end and hold my little baby in my arms it will all be worth it then.

    Have a great rest of the night, before another week at work :(

    Thanks again for being really supportive

    Hi there

    Feeling lots better today, not felt sick at all just tired, oh and some spots have now appeared, thankfully they are on my forehead under my hair so can't be seen!!!!!

    I went to my mum's for my tea tonight, so haven't been bombarded by haloweeners, poor mum and dad were though!!! The little ones are really cute but the older ones are greedy, hands in and grab as many sweets as they can, bless them eh?

    Hope everyone's Monday went ok, well ladies another one over and a little step nearer to the weekend
    :D :D

    Sending lots of hugs to you Xxx
