Seeing is Beleiving

After a horribly long weeks wait for my scan we were today treated to our first glimpse of the little bean.

I had a tummy scan first which showed the bean was in the right place (they were concerned that my pains were caused by an ectopic implantation)

This was followed by an internal scan (not the most dignigied thing but not as uncomfortable as I'd expected) this checked for ovarian cysts and gave a more detailed view of the bean.

We could see Bean's little heart beating away and the obstetrician confirmed that I am 8 weeks pregnant.

I was sad that we didn't get a scan picture though, they had run out of paper! argh!!!

Still In Pain

I was back at the doc's today as the pain has not got any better.

They are referring me to the EPAU (Early Pregnancy Assessment Unit) for a scan to make sure all is well with the little bean.

Aches & Pains

Having got away so far with just some nausea (but no actually sickness) and a bit of tiredness I was quite worried when I began to get period like pains in my abdomen this week.

By Friday the pain was getting quite bad so Hubby suggested I call NHS Direct, they sent me straight to A&E who tested me for urine infections and gave me the all clear.

But the mysterious pains are still there :(

We had booked this appointment a couple of weeks ago and were planning to have health checks and tell the doc that we were trying for a baby. However given the positive test on Saturday we just used this appointment to tell the doctor that I am pregnant :o)

He has confirmed my due date and organised my Booking In Appointment with the Midwife for the 1st of April.

I have to say I was rather impressed by the GP's attitude, he seemed very laid back about the whole thing as he is one of those rare health professionals who doesn't think that pregnancy is an illness :o)

Full Moon Thanks

Today was another Full Moon and Hubby and I held a small intimate ritual to give thanks for the seed of life which now grows within my womb. We lit a new large candle and have said that we will light the candle every Full Moon until the child is born.
