⚠️ sensitive post warning. Booking midwife appointment done ✅

Hi everyone.

So we had our first midwife appointment today & it went well.

I decided against screening tests such as downs as we are against aborting our baby & will love him or her, to us they will be perfect 😍

I did a urine sample that the midwife to test for infections even tho I feel fine.

I had blood tests to test for blood group, anaemia & infections ( I had it badly pregnant with my son)

I blew into a carbon dioxide detector & it was a reading of 1, so all normal.

My BMI is 31 😳 so I will need glucose testing, craving chips & carbs has not done my weight any favours!!!

Everything else is low risk 🙂

She’s sent off the referral to the hospital for our scan, should hear within 2 weeks. It’s expected between 11-14 weeks.

We discussed flu jab & I booked to have one, the receptionist was so helpful & got my appointment this afternoon! There were no flu clinics but when she realised I was pregnant she fitted me to see a nurse & congratulated us. Flu jab done & I will have whooping cough jab done at 20 weeks.

Everyone has been so lovely & I had such warm responses when I told them our story 🙂

I won’t lie I’m terrified about the scan & I hope it can reassure us everything is okay. I think it’s because of last year & getting bad news last time at the 6 week scan even tho I was expecting it, it wasn’t nice.

It’s a day we never thought would happen. Such an incredibly tough journey but it has been worth it.

Wishing everyone else all the best in their journeys wherever you maybe ❤️❤️❤️

We decided to just have the dating scan and no screening as we don't care what the result is we have been through too much to give up on this baby. I booked my flu jab but they can't get me in for another 2 weeks. Hopefully I'll get a letter about the scan soon, feeling a little nervous about the scan, with 2 missed miscarriages in the last year I'm a bit fearful of the "I'm really sorry but". Anyway I hope all continues to go well for you Jess. Xxx

Good for you, why would any of us give up on much wanted & fought for babies, they are far too precious 😍

It’s very nerve racking the idea of the scan but I hope we both have our minds put at rest 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Good luck with having the flu jab, it’s not too bad. xoxo 😘

Yes, you probably will and I'm sure I would too. Such a long road to get to this point and you just want everything to be well. I'm believing for you that everything will be perfect.

Ok, thanks. I was made redundant on the 10th and I finished work yesterday (official leave date is 6th November so I've gone a bit early). It's been a blessing really, I'll be starting treatment again in next couple of months so gives me the opportunity to get healthy again. Xxx

Thank you.

I’m sorry to hear that, I have been made redundant twice. It’s not nice. I am glad you are finding the positives from it. It can be very difficult managing hospital appointments & work. Know that one 🤦🏽‍♀️at least you won’t be so stressed & give it your all. I’m sure something will turn up soon for you. It will be quite nice for you to relax before starting again, treatment & trying aren’t stress free that is for sure!!!

When are you starting again? xoxo

You are right, that is a nicer way to look at it, enjoy each milestone. And to get to the midwife is good 🙂

Haha I’m still testing too- my tests are are stronger in the afternoon! I hide them from my hubby 🙈 the things we do 🤣🤣🤣

When are you seeing the midwife? You should be able to book up to see one now you are 8 weeks. xoxo

congrats Jess and OH. SO holding thumbs, crossing fingers and sending tonnes of love and good positive vibes your way for this little one. My BMI will be the same though I will NOT be doing flu job or whooping cough jab. I will NOT do glucose testing either....rightly or wrongly I don't do the NHS shit anymore as we are going private all the way to birth when we get that far. Anyway, that aside...this moment is about you and yours. Best wishes.

Thank you for such a kind reply. And get your frustrations with the NHS- it took them nearly 6 years of us trying to find my endometriosis was the cause of our infertility 🤦🏽‍♀️ - luckily our second nhs fertility doctor was much more efficient & proactive than our first nhs one - who was disinterested to say that least 🤦🏽‍♀️. It’s time you lose that you will never get back again 🤦🏽‍♀️ but suppose you have to move on don’t you. We got there in the end which is all that matters & I am sure you will too. ❤️It will be worth the fighting to get there & do whatever feels right for you & baby. ❤️Everything crossed for you 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻xoxo 😘
