talked to my midwife yesterday on the phone about having another scan at 12 weeks checking for downs but it would be a 3 stage thing with scan bloods and amniocitisis but decided not to and just wait for 10wks till 20 wk scan! i definatly didnt want the amnio with the 1 in 2 chance of miscarriage. think i just really wanted to see bubs again soon haha been feeling so tired lately, put my lil girl down for sleep yesterday around 3 and decided il have a sleep too - didnt wake up till 6! besides fatigue this time round is way better ive only spewed few times in the mornings and think that was due to not eating, but also mood swings bit more i can be fine one minute then start crying the next (hubby not enjoyin them!)its weird! its so nice coming on here reading everyones posts, seeing im not the only one feeling that way
had 1st scan yesterday saw our wee one when bub wasnt buzzing around everywhere - very active and all looked good heard hb was 160 am officialy due 30th january ( i was hoping to be bit further along but hey aslong as bub healthy all that matters!) trying to decide if i should have 12 wk scan for downs - would they have been able to see if anything would be wrong at this stage or not???
