    Glad to hear that everyone is feeling great and doing well

    I have had a bit of a fright this morning and have spent a couple of hours in bed while Jack the lad was having his nap!



    When I did the toilet paper inspection there was a bit of streaky blood in the mucus WTF??? THREE times! I rang my specialist in a panic and of course he wasn't there and had to ring me back. When he did, he could give me no real assurances except that 1. In these cases the body knows best. (Yes I'm sure it does, but I don't wannnnnnt it to.) 2. Approx half of his patients ring up with this (Gimmee their phone numbers so I can compare) 3. Some even have bleeding all the way through their pg (Yessss, I know this, it happened with Jack, just not this bl**dy early)

    ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    So when Jack went down for his nap, so did I!

    And pleased to report that on doing the awaking pee and toilet paper inspection, there was nothing. AND boobs are STILL tender-ish and STILL having a gag (I shoved the toothbrush down my throat for good measure)

    Oh why oh why is this happening??

    Thats it, I'm NOT going to discuss baby things until AFTER the scan, I will come on here and update you about my kittens instead

    Jo!!

    Sorry to hear about your scare. I had bleeding at nine weeks, and panicked just the same, and it wasn't just on the loo paper either!!

    There is nothing good that I can say to make you feel less stressed (trust me I know - nothing worked on me either, lOL!!), but as long as it is only a little streak here and there, no blobs and not too much cramping, it is usually OK.

    Keeping all my fingers and toes crossed, and mountains of sticky vibes to you!!

    Thanks guys.

    Gab - You have reassured me, it was only streaks in the mucus, I thought perhaps I might have even cut myself???? Def no clots and I think the "twinges" in my tummy are all in my mind You all know how it is

    Sarah- They are 4 inches long at the mo! Can you believe that? I have not seen them, they are too far away and besides mummy cats do not like strangers peering in at her litter LOL! The breeder will take some pics when they are a little bigger, prob about the 3-4 week mark!

    Have not had anymore streaks so are starting to breath a sigh of relief.

    Jo sweetie sorry to hear about your scare, IKEWYM! I too had the same thing, but I am certain it was implantation which is definitely a GOOD sign! And also don't forget if there's 2 in there its even more common

    Awwww @ the kittens *sniff* they sound soooo cute!

    Take care guys! Talk soon!

    *hugs*

    Happy Birthday Cailin, you goddess you! Hope you had a fantastic day. Did DH and DD bring you something nice?

    Jo - so relieved that your spotting has ceased. I can only imagine how nerve wracking it must be.

    Sal - Looking forward to hearing good news from your u/s next week. Hope you have lots of nice pictures to show us afterwards!

    Gab - you're some kind of legend, putting in those hours in your condition. Hope you're feeling better today.

    Love to all who are nurturing, growing, developing ...

    Gosh - so much happens in here so quickly...i forgot after being away from the TTC thread.
    I'm so happy for those who are finally pg...!!
    Jo, Glad to hear that things are looking better - it must have been a horrible scare. Here I am at nearly 22weeks and I still check the toilet paper!
    Hay - glad to hear that you're still hanging in there. It must be getting to that very scary/exciting stage now!
    Gab - Hope you're doing well, but I definately think you should tell work to stuff it!! Just make sure that you're looking after yourself sweety...bubs and you are too important!

    I'm sitting here and finally feeling a few good thumps from bub's - but hubby can't yet feel it. It's a good feeling though. Plus I had the first person come up to me today and ask when I'm due (when I didn't know her) which must mean that I'm starting to look a bit pg! Yay!

    Keen and Mel - Can't wait for you guys to join us in here....I constantly send good vibes your way.

    Wow Carrie - you're over halfway there! Do you know what you're having (a baby obviously but just wondering if you know the sex!!)

    Jo - So glad things have settled down, not long till your scan. I have a 6 month old Burmese kitten. OMG he is such a handful - so demanding and persistant. I do love him though even when he's jumping on my head at 6am or biting me on the boob when he climbs under the covers. Yes he does that, gives me a h%ll of a fright. We've had to tape doors closed because he jumps up and lets him and the dog out!!

    Love to you all!

    Only some teeny tiny spots today.

    11 days to my scan and counting.........

    Amy - Your Burmese saounds like a real handful, I love them, they look really snuggly and their eyes are gorgeous!

    Is it still 11 days to my scan?

    My MIL has 2 Burmese - totally inside cats - but when 1 was much younger, it also used to hang off door handles and open doors. Cheeky buggars. We have 2 cats here at home ourselves - they are just your general run of the mill bitsa cats. Although they look identical, even though they are not even remotely related!!

    Sal, yeah I guess I do have the 'perfect' c-section experience coming up. One that is planned by medicos for me well in advance! When I was first told that Pup was breech and may have to be a caesar, I was disappointed, but as time went on and Pup didn't turn, I just accepted that a c-section was how it was going to be and it was pointless and useless wishing that it was every goi9ng to be something diefferent (ie a vaginal birth). Yeah, I would LOVE to expereince the whole unknown side of things about going into labour, but when you really look into it, there is just as much hard work associated in the recovery phase after a c-section that the vaginal delivery mum misses out on. So I don't think anyone gets off scot free!! You either pay for it prior to baby born (vaginal) or pay for it after (c-section)! And living so far away from hospital (2 hrs) and also on a dairy farm (where cows are not going to stop being milked, fed, calved etc) it is nice to be able to plan stuff for DH's and my departure!

    Jo, like others, I also had spotting early on. Everything was perfectly fine. Wish it didn't happen, because it also gave me a hellovafright, but everything was normal. As it will be for you too!!

    Carrie, yep, it is getting exciting/scary/apprehensive now!!

    Hugs to everyone in here

    Hi everyone,

    Just popping in to say HI :smt039 hope you are all doing well.
    Sal, look out for your parcel Monday or Tuesday. Posted it on Friday. Sorry about the long delay but have been housebound for the last week with sick kiddies. So exciting to see you are almost 12 weeks!!!! Can't wait to get there myself, it will be a huge sigh of relief for this little mother. I hated the two week wait but I tell you, the 12 week wait is a killer!!!

    Congrats to Cai and Jo and Amy!!!!

    Tiff, thanks so much! The timing is perfect otherwise I'd have been reading on hypnobirthing rather than studying 8-[ . Glad to hear that you're OK, hope your kiddies were not too sick (I'm only now starting to notice how often my sister's kids get sick, quite often my sister and BIL getting it too, that's something that I hadn't thought about vis a vis parenthood!).

    Hay, am starting to get very excited about pup's arrival, surely it will be soon?!

    Jo, glad to hear that the spotting is going, your u/s countdown must be under 11 days now.

    Tiff I agree the 12WW is an absolute killer, and much more anxious than the 2WW too. I have started to talk to DP in terms of 'once I know that there is something growing in me, then....' and he tells me I'm being ridiculous because I'm obviously pg, but I just don't feel it. Argh, Wednesday cannot come soon enough.

    ...assuming that there IS something growing inside of me, I'll be posting my piccies on Wednesday plus agitating for a preggy belly on my av.

    Gab, hope you're getting over your flu. When will your work hours approximate something 'normal'?

    Hi Carrie, Cailin, Amy, Tam, hope you're all doing OK this morning.

    Tiff, wow what service, the book and CD arrived just now! Thank you so very much, I can't wait to read the book and listen to the CD. I am now realising that perhaps it isn't so much which hospital I have the bub in, rather how I approach the birth and how prepared I am that really matters. I'll certainly let you know how I go with the book and CD. Thanks again, that was so lovely of you O
