Pregnancy: 12+1

I had my 12 week scan yesterday and was measuring 12 weeks exactly; 5 days ahead of the early scan and a whole week ahead based on when I ovulated.  This doesn’t come as too much of a surprise as I was also tracking ovulation when ttc Miss C but was put forward a whole week then too.

Everything was fine at the scan.  Baby was really active which was so funny to watch.  The nuchal measurements were well within normal limits but we just have to wait for blood test results to check all is ok in that respect.

I’m still feeling nauseous when I’m hungry and my trousers are definitely getting tighter.  I was still in regular clothes at 16 weeks with Miss C but don’t think I’ll manage that this time around.

Despite the sickness, the expanding stomach and yesterdays scan it still doesn’t feel real.  I can’t get my head around the fact that I’ll have another baby in 6 months or so.  It’s a very odd feeling.


Pregnancy: 8+6

Pregnancy is plodding along.  I have days where I’m very positive and talk about baby, and maternity clothes, and having a bump etc but then I have days where I can’t look beyond the end of today. 

I woke this morning and decided my boobs didn’t hurt and had a mini panic, which is stupid as they’re now hurting again but, as much as I think I’m doing ok, the tiniest things just seem to throw me.

I can’t wait to get my first midwife appointment out of the way and get my scan booked.  The midwife appointment is next week and I’m hoping the scan date comes through fairly soon after that.  I’ll be 12 weeks in the last week in March so it would be nice to get a scan in that week.

Tomorrow I’ll be 3/4 of the way to that magic 12 week mark.  I just hope the next few weeks hurry up!

In other news, baby is no longer an embryo but is now a foetus (or fetus for my readers in the US) and is now the size of a raspberry.  My stomach seems to have got a little rounder, despite me losing a few pounds, but I’m still comfortable in my regular clothes.  On my positive days I’ve even been browsing maternity clothes online but I’ll wait until my scan before buying any.
