Hi i am also due 13th Jan, symthoms have not been too bad just little bit of everything but no extremes thank god!
Only thing is i got a letter from the hospital to say that they think i may have a bladder infection i had to send in fresh sample again today and they are going to test again to make sure
This is my first and feeling little nervous about it, just wondering have any of the rest of you gone through something like this before on previous pregnancies??

Hiya, try not to worry. As far as I know bladder infections are fairly common in pregnancy. If you need an antibiotic there are types that are perfectly safe to take in pregnancy. In the meantime you should drink loads of water and take it easy.

Due around February 14th and scared to think about it too much in case I get too excited. I had two miscarriages before so I am keeping fingers crossed that everything goes ok. No sickness yet but queasy pretty much every morning time. I guess I am lucky so far.....

Im excited and terrified at the same time too I havent had any idea of when I'll be having my scan or when I can hear the heartbeat bit annoyed at my doc as she explained nothing to me when I went first have another appointment with her on 28th so will bring it up then. Is it normal to have a scan and hear teh heartbeat so early?

hi,
just from reading posts having a scan so early isnt normal. only if they think somethin is wrong or you have pain or some bleeding. i had lower abdominal pain. i think the normal scan is around 17 weeks. seems alot like ur left to do things yourself like bookin appts. i didnt have to as i went to the early assessment unit and she made my appt for the 13 weeks scan. i wasnt expecting to get it til the 17th week but im not complaining. i think the best thing to do is write a list of questions for ur doc and bring them with you so you can have your questions answered. thats what im planning on doin and my doc likes when i bring him lists! im thinkin of goin public but wonderin could i go semi private. i really havnt a clue bout this stuff!! so new!
