Ah Beldon life with a two year old is so delightful you don't get the chance to worry about not having a scan  :-* plus not being in London now means there's no Babybond on my doorstep  ;D Today has been a bit of a mare  :( I've been awake since 5am with extreme D&V - probably norovirus  :-\ OH went back to London last night & his kicked off at midnight. We ate totally differently yesterday so he can't blame my cooking  ;D Feeling a bit better now but was really worried as I couldn't even keep water down. Have managed 2 small glasses of lemonade since 3pm so feeling a bit happier. Will be off to bed shortly too as have no energy. Did ring my gp for a callback for advice but no call so far  >:(

Mamo are you on clexane ? My ALT was elevated last time & I did have a massive itchy reaction early on.

    Beldon thanks - i stopped clexane at 12-13 weeks and that's when the itchy started. Now on aspirin on and off. Also read that prolonged progesterone intake can change liver function. Will stop that as well and as my vitamins - just to see if there is any change

    Oh, Beldon, a bleed is a bleed and I know how it can scare you to death... I hope it's over now... I am not spotting anymore, thanks God and am feeling pretty well, if we don't count the constant worry... I hope won't have any incidents before I go home, which will be on 14 November.
    Mamochka, hope you find the reason for that itch...
    Bundles, hope you get better soon!
    Karhog, how are you hun?

    greetings from Las Vegas everyone!

    xx Mrs.F

    Hi everyone, how are we all? Gone a bit quiet. I'm having a lazy day today, had a busy week one way or another and feeling worn out! Got my appt for my nuchal scan this coming Fri afternoon, hope all is ok. Hate this wait until the scan not knowing what's happening inside. Hoping once I see babba I can relax a bit and try to actually enjoy the pregnancy rather than worrying all the time!

    Hi Karhog  :) having a lazy one here too ! Looking forward to a nice roast lamb later too  :P Yay for your scan coming up  :)
    Heading back to London tmoro for my 20wk scan & consultant. Then I'll have to transfer my care down here. Shame really as for on e my consultant is really nice & a super cool dude  ;D Slightly worried as colchester hospital seems to have implemented emergency services (at least in their a&e) as they are so inundated  :-\ am sure I will have to travel to there as I think my local centre doesn't do consultant lead care  :(

    How's everyone else ?  ^hugme^

    Hi Bundles

    I have to say I haven't been impressed by that hospital
    So far  :-\ my EPU care has not been all that great - at times I've felt really quite frightened and upset. I'm sure everyone can't have that experience but it did may make me look into private maternity care around here which sadly does not seem to exist  :(

    Oh no Grey, that doesn't sound promising  :-\ I'm under Whipps Cross at the moment, as I was last time. My consultant lead care before was fine (not astounding) but my delivery & post natal care was superb. However it is unrealistic to keep traveling back. What sort of care do they do at Clacton ? Is it just midwives for antenatal care ? Hmmmm I'm a bit of a mardy cow & I do love a good fight so I guess we'll see  ;) plus with a medical background, they won't get away with telling porkies  ;D Thanks for the heads up Hun  ^hugme^ are you local too ?

    I think It's midwife lead at Clacton and Harwich.....we are only about ten miles from Colchester so it's definitely more convenient than anywhere else it just doesn't leave me with a glowing feeling  ^eyes^
