    Well I don't feel ready to move on yet, but I've had my dating scan this morning and all was well! Little one moving and stretching and rolling around frustrating the sonographer :-) Very exciting, but still don't quite believe it.

    Hope nobody minds if I stay here a while (am technically still 11 weeks).

    Amazing Cherry! That's wonderful news. What is your due date?

    I had another scan on Saturday at 10 weeks exactly and couldn't believe how active baby was so I can only imagine it gets more exciting as the weeks go on

    Due 22nd of March :-)

    Congratulations on your positive scan kirtsypoos, I only have the 8 week EPU scan to compare, but yes absolutely enchanting! Even hubby was quite moved (when I could bring myself to look away from the screen). I just wanted to watch him/her move around, but of course it's a medical appointment, and the focus is on stills for measurements.

    Good luck next Wednesday Sweetilemon. Hope everyone's keeping well. How are the symptoms?

    Hi everyone,
    Can I please pop my head in. I got my BFP on Saturday, still not sure it's sunk in! 29, first baby.
    By dates I'm 8+3, we put off testing as we were away and I felt if I "knew" I'd be totally anxious and not relax/worry about flying etc.
    Haven't long moved so not registered with a GP but can self refer, so am just waiting for an email for my booking in apt. Doesn't quite feel real in this limbo period! We haven't told anyone so I'm hoping this thread can be my saviour for now
    Hope everyone is doing well x

    Right by my birthday, lovely time of year although I am a bit biased! I'm hoping not to spend my birthday in labour though
    I found myself willing them just to do a few more minutes rather than switch it off!

    Congrats NBDS, lovely news

    I have to admit, I'm hating being pregnant. I just feel awful all the time. Constant nausea and insane tiredness. I haven't been sick yet but spend about half an hour every morning retching. Can't bear to even be in the kitchen (something about the smell of the cats food makes me gag) so DH is doing all the cooking/washing up/cleaning

    Really looking forward to this improving in the next few weeks.

    MrsNubs I'm so glad you said that! I'm absolutely thrilled to be pregnant but I have felt beyond rotten for weeks, throwing up 20+ times per day some days and I've lost almost a stone. I feel so ungrateful for feeling like I this at the moment. Roll on the 2nd trimester!

    Newbie-finally
    Hi ladies
    Finally I can tentatively join and come across from the miscarriage thread

    9w today after 2 mcs, 3 ectopics and 1 prem at 26 weeks so am uber paranoid.

    Was having pains at 7 weeks and was scanned in EPAu where they found baby in right place with a heartbeat . Have also paid for a private scan since for reassurance and everything still ok.

    So according to the stats I'm on to a winner.........

    Thinking sticky

    I want rid of my debt and my fat in 2015!

    Thank you! To be honest I "knew", I'm firmly in the camp with you here that feel terrible. Hate to moan but I wish the nausea would go away now! I've also got a horrible cold at the moment and feeling very grumpy

    Sweetilemon, so sorry to hear about your daughter, I can't even imagine but I hope this pregnancy is helping to ease your pain xx

    No. Not on sands but familiar with it. DD Survived....albeit with bad feet and eyesight but that was 16 years ago now

    Midwife on Thursday when I'll be 10 weeks. Does anyone know is if a Doppler will pick anything up at that point??

    Welcome lauradora. I believe (but don't know for sure) that dopplers can pick up heartbeats that early but it's rare as the baby is still so small.

    I have my booking in tomorrow. Asked my boss if I could work from home as I live/Dr is 45 minutes from work and he asked if everything was ok. Had no idea what to say! I really don't want to tell work yet

    Does anyone know if they do an internal examination at the booking in? A couple of books I've read seem to imply they will.

    Kirsty have you been to your Dr about anti-sickness medication? There are options that are perfectly safe in pregnancy and GP's are happy to prescribe. Obviously it's not ideal for you to lose loads of weight or get dehydrated so definitely don't feel like you have to suffer

    We told our families at the weekend, was really lovely. My BIL cried, which was very unexpected! Both sets of parents seemed disappointed that we hadn't told them we were TTC. Did everyone else tell their parents?
