Pregnancy: 7+2

All is still going well.  I had a scan on Thursday which dated baby 7+1 which is 2 days ahead of what I thought although I’m still using my original date for now.

Meet my little blob:

Scan at 7 weeks

All looked fine and a little flickering heartbeat could be seen.  To say I was relieved is a huge understatement!

As for symptoms, I have sore boobs still, occasional nausea (not been sick yet but I never was with Miss C either) and I’m tired.  I’ve also been ill basically since getting my bfp.  Nothing serious, just coughs, colds and generally feeling a bit rubbish.

I finally got brave enough to make a midwife appointment for when I’m 10 weeks so that’s my next milestone, then hopefully a scan a couple of weeks later.

Pregnancy: 5 weeks

5 weeks is when it was all over last time.  5 weeks is the day I’ve been dreading since I got my first positive.  But so far, all is well.  And now I’m finally on my own laptop, I thought I’d share my hpt photos with you 🙂

My first, done at 10dpo in the evening.  This is a First Response one step, not the early detection one as I managed to buy the wrong kind.  Still, not a bad line for 10dpo.

I had a rubbish cheap test left in my drawer which I waited until 19dpo before I finally did.  The wait was worth it, beautiful lines!

Finally, this morning, at 21dpo I felt brave enough to do my remaining digital test.  I’ve been dreading this day but I’m now feeling a bit happier about this pregnancy.

There’s still a long way to go yet, I know that, but I feel as though it’s one milestone reached.  I’m also feeling nauseous when I’m hungry and my boobs are feeling quite painful at times so these symptoms are helping me to believe that this might actually be our rainbow baby.

We’re still in some weird limbo at home.  Me and my husband aren’t really mentioning the pregnancy much as I think we’re both scared of getting excited for something to go wrong again.  I have a pelvic ultrasound scheduled in two weeks time.  I’m going to keep the appointment and beg them to still scan me.  I’ll be 6+6 on scan day so, fingers crossed, we should see a heartbeat.

We still haven’t told a soul about this pregnancy.  We’re likely to see my parents this weekend and, if they ask, I won’t lie to them but ideally I’d like to have the scan first.  We’ll see how it goes.

Pregnancy: 17dpo/4+3 weeks

All going well so far.  I did indeed get a 2-3 weeks on the cb digi on Friday and finally told my husband.  He’s pleased but, like me, wary of getting too excited. 

We haven’t told anyone else yet.  I’m trying to wait as long as I can before we do but may end up telling my parents in the next couple of weeks.

At the risk of jinxing everything, I’m feeling a bit more confident about this pregnancy.  I just feel more pregnant if that makes any sense.  I’m still scared; I don’t know how I’ll cope if things go wrong again, but I’m trying so hard to stay positive.

My symptoms at the moment are tiredness, odd feeling boobs and the occasional twinge down there. 

Long may it continue.
