I don’t feel as sick this week but still quite tired. We also had our first scan! I took the day off as holiday as I haven’t told work and H took half a day too. I couldn’t believe that it actually looked like a baby and was moving around! I was mesmerised by it, as was H.
Although I was actually 10+6 when we had our first scan, the doctor and midwife had dated us a week ahead of what we were, therefore we were a couple of days too early to get the screening test done so were booked in to come back in a couple of weeks.
I also saw the obstetrician as I am on medication for arthritis so they will be keeping an extra eye on me and may mean further scans and tests down the line to check the baby’s growth.
In the evening we went round to our friends for dinner who are expecting a baby in 2 weeks! We couldn’t contain ourselves and told them our news which was great as I now had someone who was also going through pregnancy to discuss it with. They gave us lots of advice as they already have an 18 month old so are well experienced!
