Sorry to hear about your u/s. Some songraphers really aren't suited to doing the type of job they are doing. I had a horrid one for my 12 week scan - took her over an hour to just get the Nuchal measurement and brain caveties!!
I'm sure your experience at Bundles will be much better. One of the founders/sonographers at Bundles is the woman who does all the scans for my IVF clinic and she's wonderful!!

Hope all the rest of you have enjoyed your weekend. I'm SO glad this bloody election has finally been called as now I know what I'm in for work wise etc for the coming month or so.

mum*of*one - I am glad you're starting to get your energy back original.gif  How exciting about feeling bubs move, it makes all those pregnancy aches and pains worthwhile doesn't it?!

Earth-Angel - One hour to do those measurements! I hope she let you empty your bladder!!!  Maybe we had the same grumpy lady!  I understand everyone has bad days but seeing our baby's is such a special time (and sometimes fraught with anxiety too) it really can put a huge dampener on the experience when the Sonographer isn't friendly.

That's reassuring to know that the Sonographer at Bundles is lovely, now I am even more excited!

tigermama - Yep, the baby looks healthy and that's all that really matters.  
This weather is gorgeous, I just love spring!  Although I feel really sorry for people who suffer badly from Hay fever.

It is a huge relief that that they've announced an election date, that means only one more month of being bombarded with pre election ads!!  I hope you don't get too snowed under at work.

Well I am off to have some Hoboken Crunch Ice cream, I made the fatal mistake of reading a thread on EB about it the other day and finally caved and bought some today original.gif

Morning everyone,

Thought I'd better bump us back up to the 1st page.

Not much happening here.  Counting down the days til I finish work already - there's still nearly 6 weeks to go!  

Question - Is anyone taking the Raspberry Leaf Tea tablets?  I bought the blackmores ones and it says to take 3 tablets 4 - 5 times a day.  That's an awful lot of tablets!  Does anyone know if it still has any effect if you don't take that many?

Mrs Frenchy - That's horrible about the ultrasound lady.  Why do they get those jobs if they're going to be like that?

Mum of one - Is there a secret to getting your energy back?  I'm hanging for the 3rd trimester 'glow'.

Better get back to work.

Hope everyone is well.
