Hi there,<br><br>Just wanted to see if you two were doing OK. Dawn, the last time you posted was about bleeding, has this calmed down now? My 9 week scan is on Friday, so I guess that you must have a scan any time now.<br><br>And Susi, hope you're OK too, you're probably getting yourself back to normal after the move etc. <br><br>Would be nice to hear from you, as we were all positives at the same time. <br><br>Lots of love <br>Nicola (8 weeks 4 days - twins)
TTC 8 yrs. Me 35, DH 52. 1st IVF eggs didn't fertilise, sperm couldn't get through shell. 2nd & 3rd ICSI got embryos but -ve. 1st FET +ve with twins, '1 disappeared' at 9 wks. One baby due 9th April.

Hi Nicola<br><br>I have been lying low, so thank you for thinking of me!<br><br>Well, I am now 9 weeks and 6 days - 10 weeks tomorrow!!!! Bleeding has stopped, but I am signed off work as there is still a bleed visible on the scan, have been having them weekly to check, with another this Friday, so the photo album is growing, and saw junior move last week which was reassuring!<br><br>Starting to get a tummy too - not sure if that is due to baby or the fact that the last time I saw the inside of a gym was about 2 months ago! Hey ho, not complaining.<br><br>Have had lots of nausea, but only a little bit of actual sickness, however my boobs are now huge, what about you?<br><br>Hope things are progressing well, I bet you can't wait for your next scan.<br><br>Take lots and lots of care of yourself and bump, and be in touch again soon.<br><br>D x

Hi <br><br>Nicola not only did we test at the same time, we are both expecting twins ! <br><br>It was a bit of shock but we are adjusting to it slowly. Not sick but really nauseous if I don't eat enough. My 2 were also different size but I was told that its normal, so we neednt worry. Have gained some weight but then was never skinny, and have more of a belly , had that before too. Have a scan tomorrow ( 9 weeks ) and hopefully will hear the heart beats as we didn't before.<br><br>Dawn, glad that you are well and resting. I know what you mean about fitness. We have 3 dogs so I try to walk them as much as possible as walking is supposed to be the best excercise.<br><br>Will let you know how my scan went.<br><br>x Susi<br>9 weeks n 2 days<br>

Glad to hear from you both - was beginning to worry. Know what you mean about lying low though, you just desperately want to be at that 12 week stage. Glad you're taking it easy Dawn and can take time off.<br><br>I'm fine, haven't been sick or felt really nauseous yet (which worries me, as this is supposed to be a good sign - good grief!) Tend to eat fine in the morning and lunchtime, but by late afternoon I feel tired and although very hungry, can't actually eat very much and very fussy. (I've gone right off vegetables, but love fruit!) As for the boobs, they are definitely bigger, but I was so small to start with, it's not much to write home about. It kills me reading about everyones DD's etc! I'd just love to be a B and not have to wear padded ones!<br><br>Well good luck and keep in touch.<br><br>N x
