Welcome to all the Mums who have just joined!
Just re-read this...Apologies in advance for the long post!!!
Becs - Your Obs will probably order bloods when you see them. They just need to check immunities etc. I was told I didn't need to see my GP (3 positive home tests) so I'm going straight to the Obs at 10 weeks.
Kez - Congrats on the job! smile
Stardust - The appointment at 10 weeks is the booking-in one. I have mine on 15 March. They'll go through your family health history so it helps if the other half can go too, since the baby is half him too! They will get you to book in for the 12-week scan soon after the appointment. My Obs had an ultrasound in his office - Smaller than the one you have your tests on but big ehough for him to see what he needs to. I had an ultrasound with him each time I had an appointment.
Feeling pretty queasy during the day and still really tired. I get a lot of indigestion too. Must admit though, it's a lot easier doing this early pregnancy stuff at home rather than working, even if DS is being a typical 2-year-old!! I was a sales rep before DS arrived and when I was pregnant with him, I used to park up somewhere quiet and sneak in a lunchtime nap in the car!
We are kinda throwing names around but for now, we refer to Bub as Cletus the Fetus, like we did with our son. smile DH is a bit of a joker and I loved the shocked looks people got last time when we had that name and not a mushy, sooky one! wink As for Cletus's name when they arrive, we have been throwing a few around but won't name them until they arrive.
We'll be finding out the sex and letting everyone know. Last time there were people (the in-laws) who didn't want to know which made it hard when we were talking about the baby, trying not to say "he" all the time. My mother-in-law has since passed away from cancer but we'll tell my father-in-law this time.
Agree about unisex clothes being hard to find!! We still have all of DS's baby clothes and a lot were white which is nice but not all that practical!! He has some boyish trousers which could be girlied up with a pink or purple top so we won't have to get a whole new wardrobe if Cletus is a pink one! wink
Anyway, hope you are all well and not too queasy!
