RKA how did your scan go?
Jayne the nuchal fold scan is the next scan due and if you opt to have the scan it must be done between 11 weeks and 13.5 weeks to check the fluid amount at the back of babys neck, this is a way to test for down syndrome. They then give you a statistic of 1 - so many, and then they should ask you questions like your age, and I can't remember if they ask anything after that but it gives another statistic. With Blake it was 1 - 5000, then they asked my age and punched it in and it became 1 - 10,000 so the risk was very low. If you do get a reading that is "medium to high risk" you then discuss with your ob or lmp and they can help guide you to the amnio test if you want to take it. It all sounds pretty dramatic, but it's usually a ok! I love the 12 week scan, because it's the first time you see bubs so clearly, with the long frog like legs and baby all fits on one screen, waves and rolls around. All very, very cute!
Morning sickness, or should be called all day sickness it getting a bit heavier. Today it was from about 7am until 7pm, I just feel like I've been on a boat, and not at the point where throwing up is the option, but dry reching is indeed occuring. I'm wondering whether it will get worse, I know 8 weeks was the breaking point with Blake and I was off work for a few days because I was so sick.
The only complaint I really have is that I'm not able to sleep well, or get to sleep. It's probably to do with the now congested nose which I know will stick around until the baby is born, but I've also got a cold from Blake and it gets sore to sleep.
My craving is tamarillo chutney with cheese sandwiches! God how awful but it tastes so good LOL.
Lozwatts I hope you have a fantastic time partying up ds's birthday how lucky is he!
I think if I feel yuck again tomorrow I'll be heading to the chemist to get sea sickness bands and give them a go! And some kind of herbal immuniser I can take to help my body shake this damn cold.
How exciting that some of us are only a month away from ending the first trimester. I'm counting down, 5 weeks and 4 days until the end for me LOL I much prefer the second trimester when the sickness goes away, you are showing, everyone knows and you actually feel half decent and don't need to eat or else you'll be sick for hours.
Well that's all from me, I should really go and try sleep again. Thank you pregnancy insomnia smile
