Time marches on!
Yesterday SIL had her 1st apt with her GP and we had a good ol’ chat last night as her DH has left her for 5 weeks as he must go to Singapore to work. I was worried as he’s only just done 7 weeks before Xmas but now she has a beanie I think she’ll be ok.
I have booked apt’s for us both ono Monday – viability scans. She still can’t believe it’s true so maybe this will convince her!
DP won’t be coming with me, I think he would have liked to just in case there is something not quite right for us. But I have to think positive and if it is bad news…well we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
I’m at home today as I called a sickie after sneezing and couoghing all day yesterday I thought I’d look after myself a bit better and have been on the pc all day. Have done absolutely nothing. Terrible. I’d best get my finger out.
Charlie, DP’s nephew will be 6 tomorrow so must go out and post the card before last post. They have also decided to come skiing with us at the end of Jan which should be fun.
Hope this cold passes as it’s getting on my nerves now

New Year’s Day – 6 weeks
Well the most important thing to note is my sister in las has announced her BFP AND we’re only 2 days apart!!! I am over the moon as she has suffered from PCOS for years and has struggled to get where she is today. She never said but my announcements were always a bit of a slap in the face for her. She has done 5 tests which makes me smile as she didn’t believe them!
anyway, we can help each other along this trail.
I was feeling absolutely dreadful these past couple of days, the surgery called me on thursdayy to say I had an ITU and to pop by ofr the antibiotics. As the last mc was riddlked with ITU’s I automatically thought it was the start of the end AGAIN. I started taking the pills and noticed a change in my discharge which was also like last time (pale yellow later with streaks of brown) so naturally I freaked out even more and made an apt at the doc’s.
After googling ‘amoxicillin’ I found out that vag discharge was one of the side effects adn this calmed me down somewhat but what has calmed me down totally is Wendy’s announcement as I finally feel as if I have someone to share this with and our dates ares so close together. Add that to the fact that our other halves are twins…well, isn’t that the biggest coincidence ever??
happy happy days
We hasd a NYE dinner at ours, we did a meal for 10 and it worked well. K has given me the details of Kent Medical Imaging where you can pay £50 for a vialbility scan and I am going to book one tomorrow just to put my mind at rest for a bit. I think Wendy maybe joining me on this one as she too is so scared as it was all so unexpected.
Bye for now – my christmas tree

Feeling a little better today. have been to see the doc and he explained thoroughly the WI. I’m to do another test 2 days after I finsh the course.
He found all the cons notes on the PC and there was no mention of a 7 week scan. I must have misheard. Anyway, we have decided to go private at Kent Medical Imaging. A viablitly scan costs £50 and hopefully by doing this it will put my mind at rest.
I didn’t sleep very well at all last night worrying that I was going to be mcing all over again and so looking forward to a nice early night much to the disappoiontment of DP.
I have another 3 days off work to enjoy and then I have promised myself to take it really easy so if I don’t fel weel I’ll call a sickie. I am determined to see this pg through to the end of 40 weeks.

This morning I had to take my nan to the hospital for a hearing aid apt, so whilst there I popped over to the scan desk to find out when my early scan had been booked adn they told me 30th Jan!! I’ll be 10 weeks by then…
I explained that the cons had promised me back in Oct at our apt for the postmortem results a much closer care this time round but their answer was if I bring the scan forward I would then not have another scan until 20 weeks!!!
So I went to see her secretary Penny to see if she would have more luck. No, she called abck to giv e me the same info and I’m totally cheesed off. I was obviously fobbed off in Oct with empty promises and now will have to follow my own pg again.
Also the surgery called to tell me I have a water infection and I have now antibiotics to take Amoxicillin 3 x 5 days. My last pg was riddled with water infections and ended badly and this just seems to be happening all over again.
I’m not a happy bunny today. I am seriously considering going privately to Fawkham Manor just to have a good check up and feel as if people do care about how my pg is progressing.
I will not lose this baby thanks to poor NHS services and dumb staff. It makes me so angry.
Kids go back tomorrow, that’s always sad for me as I know it’ll be another month before I see them again.

I’m still sleeping on my front which is my favourite ‘go to sleep’ position. I wonder for how much longer this will last though :-)
Today I took my two up to the West End to spend their Christmas money – it was murder, we queued in Debenhams for 20 mins. I was so glad to get back in the car and head home.
Still feeling nauseous and looking forward to a nice quiet evening in tonight!
