I've spent most of the day in hospital today. As per my last couple of entries i've had really bad sickness. Anyways, Weds afternoon it got really bad and carried on all the way through yesterday and this morning. My doc advised me to go to A&E, who sent me onto the maternity ward.

Anyway, had an antisickness injection, and they've started me on tablets. I had 2 litres of fluid via a drip.

Anyways, they said they wanted to do a scan to check if i was carrying twins - gulp!

I wasnt! Theres only one! Im about 10 weeks, but have my official dating scan still next Weds.

Heres a pic!!

I have been sooooo bad at blogging that i thought i'd better nip on to catch up with everyone and post a little update.

Im still not really following the WW plan, im eating what i can when i can - and even that seems to come back half the time, i just feel soo rough, bleurgh. I havent weighed in for a few weeks as i havent been at work. I was off sick the week before Easter weekend, then on leave last week to look after my youngest, then this week i have been off again to look after youngest as he has chicken pox and an ear infection - luverly jubberly!

We went to a wedding on Saturday so thought i would post a couple of pics, it was a gorgeous day, and everything was fantastic. The groom is hubby's cousin Michael and the bride Angela. The other pic is off me wearing the mother of the grooms hat! Lovely!

Apart from feeling rough, all appears to be well with the pregnancy, i have my first scan on 29th April so i'm looking forward to that, i'll finally know how far along i am, when bubs is due and also how many are in there (please please please only be 1!)

Bolton Hospice Midnight Charity Walk

I signed up to the above a couple of months ago, and i've finally got my pack through! Its an 8 mile walk starting in Bolton Town Centre at midnight on 13th June! Could be interesting as i'll be about 17 weeks pregnant by then! Just hope the sickness will have stopped.

So need to start getting in some training now! Im excited though!

Pregnancy is so unWeightwatcher Friendly

I havent bothered to weigh in this week! Ive been off work all week with the all day blinking long sickness (and all blinking night long too!). In order to try and keep the sickness at bay i need to eat every half hour to hour - not good! I was on dry crackers at the beginning of the week, but they didnt seem to be working so i swapped to ginger nut biscuits (so not good for trying to maintain my weight!).

Also, things that i think will be ok - such as dry toast and cereal - make me barf for England, but naughty things like bacon & sausage butties and Mcdonalds Double Sausage & Egg McMuffins go down lovely and stay down! Also diet drinks make me wanna upchuck, but full fat coke works a treat - AAAAAGGGGGHHHHH!

Never mind, it should settle down soon - and then i'd better live off fruit and veg for the remainder of this pregnancy!!

Weigh In

I decided to still have my own little weigh in - it being Thursday! So waited until 6.30, jumped on the WiiFit - and was 18st 11 - thats 3lb on since last week - totally not happy, will have to go to Boots tomorrow, it might be more accurate! I've hardly eaten anything this week cos i feel so bleurgh all the time! Im thinking maybe its water retention or something.

I've been feeling nauseous pretty much 24/7, it starts off alright in the morning and gets progressively worse as the day goes on, meaning evenings are absolutely awful, i've been living off cereals and toast this week (maybe hence the 3lb gain?!). Today i have started to actually be sick, and in previous pregnancies have had sickness all the way through, maybe this one will be different and it'll disappear at 12 weeks like its supposed to! (please please please!)

Had my first midwife appointment today, it was the midwife who delivered my first nearly 10 years ago and my youngest nearly 5 years ago! I really like her so i'm very pleased to have seen her again! She has also made my booking in appointment (which will be at home), for 11th April, cos she knows she's on shift that day so it'll be her who comes. She's also booked me in for my first scan on 29th APril, yay!
