    Jeez I'd forgotten how slow time goes in the first tri!! I keep opening up my pg apps each day half hoping they're going to suddenly say 11 weeks...

    Think part of it is because no one knows. Going to see my parents later and finding it so hard keeping it from them but want to get to the dating scan before we do.

    Also one of my close friends has started being a bit funny with me - I've not been able to go on any nights out since Christmas, not because of the pregnancy but because of OH's shifts. The two times I could go out she cancelled last minute (so it's not wholly down to me). I've also been so busy in work that I haven't been able to send her so many emails (usually we email once or twice a day during work breaks just to catch up but I've been working through lunch the last few weeks ). Consequently now she's started sending really brief replies or none at all to messages I send. Part of me is thinking should I just tell her but then the other half of me thinks she's being silly and I'd rather not tell people yet.

    This is a bit of a pointless post but feeling bored and frustrated today!

    I always feel guilty feeling like this as I remember how desperate I was to get pg and also about how many women would do anything to get pg and who probably wouldn't care how slow time went...

    Hi Naomi,

    I know how you feel, I think aswell because I found out at 9DPO so 3 1/2 weeks, time is going slowly. I think weekend drag aswell when you have time to sit and look at forums and apps. I'm thinking with one last week at school, half term, a short next half term it should hopefully speed up a little.

    It's difficult when you don't tell people and they get a bit short with you, I would stick with your husband and just leave her be for now and when you feel ready tell her. Keep the convo going on your side then she has no excuses. We have only told 3 people, I'm glad we've kept it that way for now. Role on week 12!

    Xx

    The girls are right, Id keep hush if thats what you want or tell her ypu have a lot on your plate with work etc, any understanding friend wouldnt badger that.

    Im not telling fam till after the scan either, time is dragging in.

    I feel bad for moaning but Id rather just pass go and get to my scan now.

    Thanks ladies. Hopefully time will speed up a bit! Bobby I'm going to try and break it down into chunks too - I work through half term but have a couple of nice family days etc planned between now and the 12/13 wk mark so going to try and countdown to each of those and hopefully the time will pass quicker.

    Went to my parents earlier for lunch and I swear they suspect something. I cried twice while I was there (once when I was giving them the synopsis of 'Inside Out' and once when I looked at a photo they had of my dd at a few weeks old and started talking about how much she's changed lol). Plus refused wine which I never do haha! They didn't say anything though and I might throw in a couple of 'heading out for cocktails' texts to them over the next couple of weeks to put them off the scent haha.

    Text my friend earlier and said about the work stress RM but nothing back from her as yet :-/ not going to stress about it now though and will just try and catch up with her this week.

    Ah well, another day almost down!

    I know this feeling so well! I normally enjoy my work and am very busy there so days have always flown by - since we had our news they drag on forever! Weekends seem better if I'm with my OH and we can enjoy our news :smile:

    I think it will be worth it to see friends' and family's faces when we tell them and have a scan pic for them to see though.

    Aw sorry to hear you've had a mc - it does make pregnancy a bit stressful after that but hopefully all will be fine. Will you get an early scan? Xxx

    Okay, so we've only known for 6 days and shes now 5 weeks. She says time is going to go faster than I think! But its all I can think about everyday! So it feels like it couldn't go by any slower... So I definitely see what you mean!
