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.

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.

Cycle 6 CD39 13dpo

Or I suppose I could say 3+6 but that just sounds sooo early!

I did another hpt this morning and got a darker line which pleases me.

Also, and just humour me for a minute, I think I have symptoms.  Surely it’s too early though?  Or it’s my mind playing tricks on me?  Who knows, but my boobs feel odd, I’m tired, I felt nauseous before I ate yesterday and today, I’ve had a couple of dizzy spells, and did I mention I’m tired?!

I may be coming down with something and those ‘symptoms’ may not be pregnancy related at all but I’m kind of hoping they are.

Still haven’t told the husband.  Think I’m going to tomorrow as I’ll be officially late then.  I also bought a 2 pack of digital tests when I went shopping earlier as I just can’t help myself.  I’ll be doing one tomorrow and I know at 14dpo it could either say 1-2 weeks or 2-3 weeks but I’m crossing everything that it says 2-3 weeks.  I’d be surprised if it didn’t really after the good line I got at 10dpo.

I’ll update you in the morning.
