☡Warning scan pic!☡...Am I dreaming?! 😍

Soooo after 5 long years ttc I finally, finally get to post about my 12wk scan 😍...

I am so pleased to report all is well with our bubba. In fact, we have ourselves a right wriggler!...arms and legs were flying all over the place so they struggled to get a clear pic. He/she is actually measuring a couple of days ahead so my due date has been brought forward by 2 days to the 8th March!...making me 13wks exactly which means goodbye 1st trimester (high five!)

As many have mentioned before, I just want to say a huge thank you to all you lovely ladies (and men) who have laughed and cried with me, and ultimately kept me sane over the last few months. You are the guys i could turn to when i had nowhere else to go. This truly is a special site, full of the most amazing compassionate folk I've ever "met".

I hope all of you complete your families, whether that be through ivf, doners or adoption very very soon!

I'm off to chill out for a couple of days before I think of something else to worry about.

Lots of love,

Oakey xxx

  • Aww congrats dear. I saw my baby today as well. My due date reduced by one day which means meeting my lovely baby a day earlier I suppose. I am also due in March. Enjoy your holiday- I had to return to work after scan lol- but I had plenty holidays during ivf so not complaining lol. xxxxx

  • Hi Oakey80 perfect looking little person. Well done, and here's to a trouble free pregnancy. Diane

  • Thanks Diane....I just cannot believe it's all real. Hoping it will sink in properly over the next few days...and definitely hoping I can stop worrying quite so much!

  • Hi. Here with my midwife hat on if needed. Take care. Diane

  • Much appreciated as unfortunately my midwife is completely snowed under with patients. I tried to book my 16wk appointment today and they couldn't fit me in week 16, 17, 18 and weren't taking bookings for later. Tbh my antenatal midwifes care has been awful so far 😓

  • Hi. So sorry to hear that. Every pregnancy is precious however conceived, but there is something even more precious about an IVF or similar conceived baby, leaving these mums to be even more anxious than usual. For this reason, it Is sad that some of you girls seem to get fewer appointments than they should, these days. It's not always the case, I know, and like any pregnancy, if any problems were to arise, rest assured, a closer eye would be kept on you. Keep well. Diane

  • Lovely pic, so happy for you ❤️
