Aug 02, 2011 - 2 comments

We had our scan. all was well wth Smudge, 2 arms, 2 legs, head and a body!. the heart was pumping away but they didn't have the equptment there so yet again we couldn't hear it. I have midwife appointment in 4 weeks so will hopefully be able to hear it then. So happy everything was ok. Just waiting for results from all the tests to come back now.

moving



Ok so i know it's probably way to early as only 10 and abit weeks but i think i felt the baby move!! Now i know its crazy and was probably just wind but the other night i was in bed and was nice and relaxed and i felt like poping feeling in my belly. I didn't think much about it until last night when the same thing happened, it was about 11pm and again i was in bed, just settling down and getting comfy then the poping started!. It lasted all of 10 seconds each time and wasn't followed by passing any gas. But today at work i had a terrible ache, it was just under my left boob like trapped wind, my tummy seems to have ballooned today so im sticking with the trapped wind but deep down in the back of my mind i can't help but wonder!!. Hmmmm.........

Midwife



So today i went to see the midwife, she's not mine as it was her day off, mines called Jenny, always a freind sort of name is Jenny so that's nice! lol.
Anyway filling all the questions re;health ect and they asked about our familys so they can rule out any inherited issues.
Because Sam's dad is Tunisian sam could be a carrier for Sickle Cell and some other long worded blood dissorder so i had to have a blood test, now if mine comes back and is shows i am a carrier sam will then be tested to make sure, then if we both are carriers 'smudge' (as i've taken to calling him/her) will be high risk. But as all my family and annsestors are all White British, its mainly people that there annsestors came from places that have Malaria, i.e Africa ect....
Lots and lots of info overload, telling us about all the things they screen for at the 12 week scan like Down's Syndrome.
Have had a bath and read up so am ready to get going now, roll on next week.

So yesturday i had more streatching, this time just above my pubic bone, then late afternoon i went to for a wee and there was blood. Ipaniced!! it was very very light pink that turned to brown then stopped, i was enough to transfer onto my pantie linner. The cramping wasn't unbarable, just a little uncomfy and there were no heavy or red blood but still freaked out, I had a bath then spent the night laying down and relaxing, today cramping is there, keeps switching from pubic bone at the front to left overy. I just hope it is streatching and nothing more sinister!!.
