Sorry I have been offline for a while - I was away all of last week trekking around visiting friends and family and with being back at work this week
I've only just caught up. Rest assured, I'm back and will hopefully be up to speed with everyone soon!
Albany - love your pic. I can't wait to get a bump. Feel nothing but bloated which I think is still from the progesterone pessaries which I am taking for another week, only till week 8 - this seems to be less than other peeps?
Claud -hi - lovely to have anothe Nov/Dec board girl over here. Hope your next beta goes ok. Have everything crossed.
Had my 7 week US today!!! Yippeee, we saw a heart beat. It was amazing. Have a little print out which I have scanned it to my parents. It's now my screen saver on my laptop. Can't stop looking at it. Was so pleased to see something as we had not beta (I POAS 8 times - have spent a small fortune - no more now), so it was so nice just to know that there was actually something in there!
We are going to tell our siblings on Christmas day when I'll be 8 weeks and 2 days, then save telling friends until we are more safely 12 weeks. We are going to hide the scane picture in the crackers on the dinner table - am sooo excited!
Am getting a little less anxious and a little more excited each day that we are pregnant. May that continue.
Albany - you are so good reading up on so much! I have been too scared to let myself look at anything in case something goes wrong. Am such a glass half empty person - but trying not to be - afterall, my treatment worked!
Have convinced myself I'm having a boy, purely because I read that boy fertilised eggs develop quicker and we had one blast transferred that had started to hatch. I used to desperately want a girl -now I couldn't care less - funny how things change isn't it?
Will try to do more personals once I have caught up on who everyone is. Good to be here though
