Scan time!

Well, after such a long wait we finally had our very first scan! For 2 years and 8 months we had been waiting for this moment! Not got much more to say as I’m still so excited! I thought I was 12 weeks today, but I’m actually 11+5, so not too far behind! EDD 11th March 2012!


It was jumping about all over the place so this was the best she got! 😀 

 
^^^^ THAT’S OUR BABY!! ^^^^

Our gender scan is the 31st October – I wonder if we’ll be having a little witch or a little wizard!


Booking in with the midwife

Well we had our booking in appt. with the midwife last Wednesday, it went quite well! 


Got there, went through medical/family history, last AF etc., gave us our EDD which is the 10th March – I had it as 9th March, so not too far off, though it will probably change again at our 12 week scan! Then had to do pee sample, took lots of blood from me (ouch!), gave me lots of reading material! Then I had to get my height measured and weighed, to work out my BMI. Well, it turns out my BMI is just on the borderline (BMI 30) to be under consultant led care. So she is referring us back to our FC consultant. Quite happy about this actually as he knows our history etc., though he’ll probably have to be refreshed when we see him! She said though, this means I will more than likely be given extra growth scans, and will be tested for diabetes around 28 weeks. Extra care is good.


Oh, and our scan is on Friday the 26th, so less than 3 weeks now! So excited to see our baby!

Telling the parents

Last week we decided to tell the parents! We were going to do it on Thursday as that was my Mum’s birthday, but she was out all day and away for the night so we left it until Friday.


First we went to the in-laws while we waited for my Mum & Step-Dad to get home. MIL at first didn’t believe us – “Are you joking with me?” “Why would we joke about something like that?!” And then she kind of looked shocked and then started punching the air and chanting “I’m gonna be a Granny!” which was quite funny (it’s her first grandchild)! Then she told FIL (they sit in seperate rooms as he is deaf and wears headphones to listen to the TV), his reaction was “Oh right, well done” and then put his headphones back on! But when we left MIL tells us he was looking at cots 😉


So then we ventured to my Mum & Step-Dad’s, to give her her birthday present and card. I broke it to her by saying “We’ve also got you something else but can’t give it to you until next year…” She couldn’t figure it out so I said “You’re gonna be a Granny again!” (This is her 2nd grandchild but she missed out with my niece as we were stopped seeing her 2 or 3 months after she was born) They were both shocked too, and she even gave me a hug which never happens! lol


On the Sunday we went to tell BIL. Hubby broke it to him. It went something like this. BIL – “so what do ya know?” Hubby – “You’re gonna be an Uncle!” (Which I was shocked at as he was worrying how he was going to tell him, but I suppose that was the perfect opportunity!) He gave us his congrats.


We’re not making a point of telling my brother until later on as there is a bit of history between us, so he can wait. My Dad is a difficult one, of course I want to tell him but I rarely speak to him or see him, which I really know I should do, but it works both ways doesn’t it? We’re going to wait until we’ve had our scan and then go round and say we have something for him. I hope he takes it well. 

Blood results

Today I went for my blood results to confirm my pregnancy… Well I am definitely pregnant! My GP also said that my hCG levels were exceptionally high for this stage of pregnancy, meaning that either the clomid has an effect on the levels, or there is more than one in there, eek…


We have our FC appt. on Tuesday anyway, so I will ask the consultant! The GP also said that he will probably discharge us as we don’t really need to attend any more.


And my booking in appt. with the midwife is on the 3rd August, I will be about 8.5 weeks then! Now things are steaming ahead I’m hoping it goes quick as I’m quite impatient!


It’s so hard keeping it quiet on Facebook too! 

Update on us and this cycle (round 2 100mg clomid)

Well, I have some rather exciting news…





Yes, we are having a baby! After 2.5 years! I still can’t quite believe it!


Everybody on the forum I go on was in tears and shock, cue more tears from me!


Well long story short, I tested on CD29 (last Friday) and got a BFN, so thought that was it for this month. Well I had one PG test left so yesterday I thought ‘what the heck’ and tested, control line appeared, yep, test line appeared, ‘what the?!’! I thought I was seeing things! So I did an OPK (I have loads of those and remember someone on the forum saying she got her BFP from one), same happened there! Waited ’til hubby got home from work and did another OPK, then we went and got some from the shop, and did one of those! Two lines! Then I saved the other until this morning, just in case I dreamed it all yesterday, but yes, still two lines!


I went to the GP this morning and I have to go for a blood test in 2 weeks before our next FC appointment, she said if it confirms it then I probably won’t need to go, but I’m going to anyway so I’m still in the system, just in case… She also said not to get too excited as you can get false positives, but 3 in a row?! (Well 5 if you count the OPK’s lol)


Going by my LMP by EDD is 25th March and I am 4 weeks 6 days gone. Can’t wait for our scan though so we can find out more accurately, hate having stupid cycles!


P.S. If you are on my Facebook please don’t say anything until I do.
