Half way

I can't believe I've made it half way through my pregnancy! 20 weeks today. πŸŽ‰ so pregnancy has not been as easy as I thought it would be had severe morning sickness leading to dehydration, lost weight but now got anti sickness tablets tried missing one to see if it passed - it hasn't. No bump until this last week but still just look normal but slightly "podgy". Early baby scare with positive harmony blood test results. Having a girl. But honestly she is a little fighter and that is pushing me to be strong too. I can't wait to meet her but equally don't want this time to rush past me. This maybe the only time I'm pregnant and I want to enjoy every minute sickness and all.

Hi..

First I congratulate you for completion of 20 weeks in your pregnancy . Do you know that you are doing a great job "giving birth to baby". only girls have that golden opportunity to become a mother who is equal to god and in my opinion she is more than that. Only mothers bares that much pain while delivering with happiness . But be careful in this time till delivery date you may fall into sickness but follow medicines regularly other than these all anti sickness the main power full medicine is LOVE on your little champ. Enjoy your pregnancy time.

ALL THE BEST..

Aw lovely...if my first round had worked I'd be 20wks this week too...I can't complain though cos I am 9wks pregnant tomorrow from my 2nd round...I just have to be a bit more patient!

Totally get your sentiment....celebrate every milestone, enjoy it all, savour every moment (even the icky bits) as it may be our 1 and only chance!!

Congratulations hun πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

As it was an fet my clinic let me crack on straight away (well after my 1st af)...I grabbed the opportunity with both hands and here we are! 😁 I must say I'm fairly chilled about it right now...I've decided worrying won't change the outcome so I might as well enjoy the moment!

Good luck with the next 20wks! (Not that u need it 😘)

Such a good attitude to have. And I think sometimes just getting straight back to it is the best option. Have you had an early scan?

Yeah we had it at 7.5wks...that was the longest 3.5wks of my life waiting from the bfp at 4wks to seeing the little heartbeat! We're having a private scan at 10wks just to put our minds at rest as something tells me we'll have to wait til 13wks or so for our next nhs scan (apparently they're very busy in our area!) xx

We did the same there is no harm in the extra scans and if it gives you peace of mind it's worth every penny xx

Well Done Ch319, were 28 weeks.... I'm glad all is going well, to be honest, I don't really recall my wife having the morning sickness as such, she had/has/is experiencing sore hips, tiredness and feet swelling, but besides that nothing edge than what should be expected. We are so so excited to get this far, likewise I'm sure you are too..... wishing you all the very best and Willing your journey
