Am I the only one who doesnt have sore boobs? Not at all - I keep feeling them to check but nothing.
Not that im complaining!

But god I am ready for bed, I have been in bed by 8:30pm every night and I wake up after 9.5 hours and I feel like I need more.

I'm the same Hummingbird. Apart from being tired, even my nausea seems to have died off. It may sound silly, but I actually prefer it when I have symptoms as it is a comfort that my body is doing what it's meant to! I even POAS last night just to check - was relieved when those 2 lines came up again!

I'm usually in bed by just after 8 but not falling asleep until close to 10ish and still waking up at 4am wacko.gif

Although, I discovered another symptom last night - a complete lack of libido! Poor DH! laugh.gif

laugh.gif I don't either if that makes you feel any better. I am really tired though and have sore stomach and back muscles... Having nice deep sleeps though. Completely off coffee, totally not like me!

I am an IVF pregnancy so I am on pessaries every 12 hours which leave a lovely waxy creamy substance so not too much happening in our bedroom either!
I can wait till early Jan when I can stop them.

deja vu I made myself a decaf this morning and couldnt drink it, it didnt make me feel sick it just wasnt very appealing.

Morning everyone!

Hope you're all traveling well smile.gif

Little Leo - I don't think I'll be resting until after the new year - lucky hubby has almost three weeks off starting at the end of next week so I don't have to do everything myself! I'm also feeling pretty organised with Christmas in general - I only have a few little bits and pieces left to do, and then the things I need to make, and I'm done. I'm so much more organised this year than I've ever been, which is nice, considering I have no energy left anymore. December is busy here as we have 3 birthdays in my family all before Christmas.

Hummingbird and Deja Vu - I managed to drink a coffee this morning, but now the smell is on my hands and I can't stand it!

AFM - Morning sickness arrived with a real bang yesterday - I couldn't keep anything down, including the previous night's dinner ph34r.gif all morning. Managed some apple sauce and a scone, and some lemon-and-ginger cordial in the afternoon, but didn't manage to keep last night's dinner down, either (which was a shame, as it was my brother's birthday dinner, too) sad.gif Feeling much better today, though. Hubby got down my body pillow (was my best friend during my first pregnancy!) so I had a terrific nights sleep, and while I still feel a bit queasy, I don't think I'll actually be sick today.

M/s arrived two weeks earlier this time than before - last time the one day I had of not keeping anything down was at 7.5 weeks - was Boxing Day, actually - so I hope that yesterday was my 'one day' for this time. Fingers crossed!

We're going to our local tourist attraction tonight - it's open for free late-night Christmas shopping, so that'll be fun! It's an 1850's themed attraction, with lots of yummy old fashioned lollies and jams, and breads - will be face painting, too, according to the website, and that's always been a weakness of mine ph34r.gif laugh.gif wub.gif

How's everyone going as we head into the weekend?

~La Coccinelle~, I really hope yesterday was a much better day for you.

AFM - I've noticed this week a sense of urgency to get everything done ASAP, which is good as I'm usually the world's worst procrastinator! With the lack of symptoms, I'm trying hard to keep my paranoia at bay by continuing to POAS!! Although I've only done 2 this week - one internet cheapie on Wednesday, then I had to use my 2nd CB digital one today - they do have an expiry date and it would a shame for it to go to waste!! ph34r.gif Last Saturday the CB said I was 1-2 weeks (from conception) and today's said 3+, so it was comforting to know my hormone levels are doing what they are meant to.

I've also been in contact with my GP via email and am now more at ease with my 8 week appointment. She is on holidays, but said she could see me after her last appointment the day she gets back, but that's just 1 week before the appointment I made and I would have to get time off work and it's not the best day to organise that, so I'm keeping my December 27th appt. The only suggestion she had was to take a pregnancy vitamin - but I've been on Elevit since January, so I've got that covered!!

Hope you all have a relaxing weekend (well as relaxing as it can be at this time of year!)

Thanks smile.gif Thursday was the only really bad day so far, but have been feeling so nauseous pretty much constantly since then. Have bloated too - feeling very sorry for myself. I was nowhere near this sick with my DD, and I'm madly crossing my fingers that it passes sooner than the 12 week mark. Thankfully I've had lots of help from my mum wub.gif

LOL @ CB digi tests - yes, they do have an expiry date, so would be a shame to waste them wink.gif Glad that the POAS are giving you peace of mind, not having symptoms isn't necessarily a bad thing though. Glad you've gotten in contact with your GP - 8 weeks isn't too late at all smile.gif

We had our family's birthday bonanza yesterday (we went ice skating) was so much fun, even if I felt awful the whole way home! My DD had a ball; if only her feet were bigger, she'd love to have been out on the ice! Hubby has only today to work, the two days off, then two more days of work before almost 3 weeks off! I can't wait biggrin.gif

Hope you are all traveling well, and have had a nice weekend! smile.gif

Morning Girls!

How are we all?

Well I survived a huge weekend with 4 different things on. Had to have 2 naps to keep me going!!

Did one blood test on Saturday morning, will do another tomorrow and then off to GP on Thursday.

Another busy week ahead!

La Coccinelle - sorry to hear you have been so sick. Hoping it passes for you too by 12 weeks. The ice skating sounded like fun!

LJD1 - glad you are feeling better about GP, have you booked in with an Ob? You can book in before you get the GP referral - that's what I have done.

Must get ready for work...

I haven't booked with an Ob yet Little Leo as I don't know who I want to go with! I have remembered my SIL's OB when I Googled OB's in my area, but I'm going to wait until after I speak with my GP to see who she recommends who would be best for my situation.

AFM - I'm taking a pretty significant time fraction decrease at work next year (decided to do this before my BFP, but am sure it's the reason my body decided it could cope with being pregnant, knowing the stress levels of my job would be greatly reduced in 2012!). I'm counting down the days till the end of the year and was talking with my boss today and couldn't wipe the smile off my face. He said I had a "glow" about me and just assumed it was because I was looking forward to more "me time" next year - I reckon there's another reason for my glow wub.gif !!

Morning ladies - mind if I join you?

Got a BFP this morning - yay!! AF was 4 days late LOL so not REALLY that much of a surprise for us.

We think we're due around 20th of August. This is #2 for us. As yet no real symptoms besides a little bit of morning sickness.

Looking forward to getting to know you all.
