Hi Everyone!

I hope some people will be joining me here! It's so exciting to move on from the trying to conceive forum!

I have a doctors appointment this afternoon which will confirm if my pregnancy is developing. I had some concerns early on as I had some bleeding. But since then all seems okay.

This will be my first baby so I'm very excited (and stressed)!

Hope to hear from you soon xox

Shyly joining, I'm somewhere between joy and disbelief! ;)

Well hi there! Don't be shy! (I'm very shy in real life but not online - haha!)

This is an excellent way to get support especially if you haven't told anyone yet. I hear you. I'm kind of in disbelief myself.

When did you find out? Were you trying?

Yay!! Congrats Diamond and toparisbytrain!

I just found out, as you probably remember Diamond, a few days ago and literally didn't believe my eyes when I had positive tests lol.

This will be baby #2 for me, though my other baby is a big boy according to him - he's 10.

Has the bleeding stopped? I remember I had some spotting with my first pregnancy and all was good!

I'll have my 7 week dating scan with a fertility specialist in late November. It makes me nervous it being so new, I almost got to a point where I was scared to do anything but I've stopped stressing so much now thank god!

Hey Jasmine! So glad you're here! This is so exciting!

The bleeding has stopped. I think what level of spotting is normal is kind of open interpretation and would vary from person to person, which was why I was so worried because I didn't know if I was spotting too much or if it was even considered spotting. It wasn't heavy but anyway, I wasn't sure of the specifics.

My CM has been clear for 4 or 5 days now. Which makes me so happy! I don't think I could have bared it if it had continued. I see the doctor today again for my final blood test results. I guess if my HCG levels have increased then I'm okay for the moment.

I will be booking my first ultrasound in in 2-3 weeks. My doctor asked me to hold off as long as possible because he wants me to be able to see the little heart beating to put my mind at ease. :)

Symptoms so far: nauseous, very tired, sometimes random 'period pain like heaviness' in my pelvic area.

Congrats everyone. It suddenly feels very real for me. Had my first DR's appointment yesterday and booked in for my dating scan for the 21st. Also, booked into the midwife program but suspect that I won't get in due to complications with DS. I'm happy to do shared care but thought I would try for the mw program as I loved it last time. I like having small goals on the horizon.

My dr also suggested that I do the harmony test. Is anyone else considering it?

I still feel like I have PMS which I know logically is a sign of early pregnancy but it still makes me feel nervous. My first pregnancy 10 years ago (actually 11 now! omg!) was a surprise and I thought I was just sick - whoops! So knowing so early is very new for me. My b00bs have gone up a cup size which is awesome lol.

That's a great sign that your CM has gone back to clear! They like to cause us stress already!!!

I just looked up what the harmony test is - it looks interesting. Did the doctor give you a reason why you should consider it? I guess it could put people's mind at ease if anything!

I definitely plan to do the harmony test. More reliable than the nt scan I had done with my daughter two years ago and far more affordable than it was back then.

Hi everyone,  cautiously dipping into this group.  AF was due yesterday but took a fR test two days ago and got a BFP. The line had darkened since then :-). We are trying for a second and had a little girl in July 2015. Symptoms wise I have never felt so much fatigue and have been going to bed at 8.30 the last four nights. Am going to the gp today for some bloods as I have had a Mc prior to our little bun last year so am on the slightly more anxious side !

According to LMP EDD is 15-7-17.

Welcome newbies! So exciting to think we will all be having our babies around the same time. :)

#14 *Jasmine*

Posted 04 November 2016 - 08:16 PM

It's super exciting :)

I don't seem to be having as many symptoms as some of you, rather than fatigue I'm waking at night to pee and unable to get back to sleep! Quite the opposite. Last night I was up reading from 2.30-3.30 am and up again at 5.30 to get ready for the day. It's frustrating having issues, especially so soon after giving up caffeine hahah! But considering I'm not doing too badly throughout the day, I wonder if it's the Elevit tablets giving me a bit of a kick.

Last time I was up in the night to use the bathroom from the get go but none of that yet this time round.

#16 sandy34

So, I puked for the first time last night. Not my usual Friday night (anymore!) I had HG with my first so this is not a good sign.

I'm so tired but awake all night. I've had to lie down during DSs nap time to make it through the day. At least these are all good signs. It's hard to feel pregnant until you see a heartbeat.

Oh wow I feel for you Sandy34. I had bad morning sickness ( not HG though ) with my first baby and it was horrendous. Loved of copious consumption of zofran which was soooo expensive !  As horrid as it is, at least it's a symptom to keep you at ease . Other than horrendous  fatigue and very mildly sore boobs and just the odd spot of random nausea in the morning , I don't have any other symptoms ... although I am only one day after my expected arrival of AF lol

#18 *Peony*

Posted 05 November 2016 - 09:15 PM

I almost felt like I was going to throw up today at my new job, thankfully it passed. I checked the bin under my desk and made a mental note to make sure I line it with something in case it happens again. That would have been an interesting start.

#19 *Jasmine*

Posted 05 November 2016 - 10:11 PM

I haven't had any nausea (yet) but have noticed my sense of smell getting a bit heightened and things are tasting funny/odd that I would normally like. No fatigue yet, most of my symptoms seem to be my boobs - they're huge and sore!

Had dinner with my in laws and drank apple juice from a wine glass hehe! Must be so much more difficult to hide when feeling fatigue/queasy!

I'm cautiously joining too, due 22 July still technically 4 days before AF due. I have an 18 month old DS & had a MC before him. Each pregnancy I've known very early on as I go completely off smoked salmon which is one of my favourite foods! Hope I'll be sticking around this time :) Congratulations everyone!

#21 Alariya

Posted 06 November 2016 - 07:52 PM

Welcome and congrats to everyone! :D

Symptom wise, I've been getting hay fever every time I go outside, which is quite unusual for me. Haven't had that in years. I also had to roll over and face away from DH to sleep the other night, as his breath smelt really strongly of smoke to me.  The kicker - he hasn't had a cigarette in 8 years!

Other than that, I've been waking up much earlier than usual. Normally I struggle to get out of bed by 9 on the weekend, but by that time Saturday morning, I had already read 3 chapters of a new book, walked to/from the gym, washed my hair, done the groceries and driven half an hour across town to the discount pharmacy!

Hi ladies!

Congratulations on all your bfps. Cautiously optimistic over here, tested literally today on cd29 of what i was expecting to be a 33 day cycle. I'll be testing again over the next couple of days and getting a gp appointment to confirm. Very excited, but also scared it will go away. Just before my first af after having dd i got two tests with faint lines and the next day negatives.

Welcome and hello to all new comers! :)

Alariya,

I have pregnancy envy here. I seem to be having a bad run. I have some kind of flu and feel tired all the time! I have to say I have been going to sleep sooner and getting up earlier, but feeling crappy has definitely not made me productive. I am exhausted.

Kallie,

Best of luck and sending sticky baby dust your way! I had SO much fear at the beginning because I had some bleeding/spotting which at first I thought was AF then ended up testing because what I thought was AF was odd. So I understand being afraid to get your hopes up. It won't hurt to send positive vibes down there.

Hi All,
I'm joining July! According to my last period i'm due on the the 28th of June, but based on ovulation, I'm the first week of July. This will be bubs number 2.

Nausea has kicked in the last few days, and so has the exhaustion. I'm also getting pretty emotional which is also really frustrating.

We haven't told anyone yet as our families can't help themselves and have to share with others, so we have decided to just keep it between DH and I for the moment. DD will be told just before we tell the rest of the family as 3 year olds aren't great with secrets.

Congratulations on all your BFPs and fingers crossed for them all to be sticky.
