I gave in and told work the other day after the person who processs leave forms got a bit suspicious. Luckily there's only 4 of us for the rest of the year including the boss, so it's still pretty contained. It's also nice to have someone to talk to who's been though it all so can give me a heads up on what's to come and will understand if I'm not at 100%.

Hiding from friends will be interesting as I've got my 10 year high school reunion this weekend. If that's not a prime place for gossip I don't know where is!

I'm going to struggle keeping it to myself so much! Not because people will get suspicious though, just because I'm so excited lol. I've told one really close friend, but told DH I'd try not to tell anyone else until Christmas. I don't drink, or really eat sushi or soft cheese lol so not much to give me away :p

How many people are working at the moment, I'm home with #1 so don't need to worry about that

I'm working, I'm pretty lucky to only work 4 days a week. Dreading morning sickness at work. I work in a small office and share an office - eek

I'm a stay at home Mum so no issues here, although I rarely get morning sickness and I'm hoping it stays that way!

Hello ladies and congratulations to you all! I got my BFP a couple of weeks ago but was apprehensive to join as I had a CP last cycle. Anyway I'm 6 weeks now with an EDD of 6/7/17. Having my dating scan a week today which I'm v excited but super nervous about! I have been having a lot of CM and some pelvic cramping which my GP assures me is perfectly normal.

Fire Lady - did your Dr tell you the results were low for those dates? Do you know what it means?

Yeah we discussed over the phone that they confirm BFP but don't line up with my LMP. It's not that surprising because my periods were all over the place before I got pregnant. I'm booked in for a dating scan on 17th November which will be great 😀

Congrats Sarah on your BFP!

I still work full time at the moment and work in a small office so it is going to be hard not to tell people (because I'm so excited!) and also going to be hard to hide morning sickness from them (I have been married for a year so whenever I am a bit off my colleagues say 'maybe you are pregnant' haha).

I have just come down with a horrible cold and it is so hard because we can't take anything, I am feeling really miserable.

Heard from my Dr yesterday in regards to my blood results. He  said my progesterone levels are up where they should be but that my HCG levels have not doubled and he wants me to go for another blood test today. He said the levels were increasing but not enough for him to be confident. He said that as it is still really early on (I am 4w 6d today) this is not abnormal and not too worry. The only thing is I won't get results until Monday now so it is going to be a long weekend waiting..

I have been feeling off but only due yesterday for AF. POAS today and low and behold double lines.  Really dark double lines.  

I am in shock, have just rung DH and he is so excited.  This will be number 6.  I thought I had run out of time for that last baby, and was booked in to see my OB on Wednesday to discuss everything, he is going to be very surprised :)  I am 43, so a little nervous, fingers crossed all goes well.

Congrats to you all and big hugs.

I'm so nervous about hiding it, and I really want to keep it hidden until 12-13 week scan. I'm one of two 'younger' employees so everybody is always on the lookout for one of us to fall pregnant. The other young one is baby obsessed so is always talking about it and it is becoming increasingly difficult for it to not accidentally slip out! I'm a shockingly bad liar.

YAY!! That's exactly what happened to me, too. I was worried it might be twins my line was so dark LOL.

Congratulations!!

Hi ladies, nervously joining you too.
Thrilled to be having baby number 5, about 12 July. I had a miscarriage in June after a total shock to find out I was pregnant. Have wanted to have one more to be a buddy for my 5year old but time is not on my side as an older mum.

Looking forward to sharing the journey with you all

#63 Kallie88

Posted 11 November 2016 - 05:53 PM

Looks like we've got a few with big families! I'll be interested to hear how you manage, I've always had four in mind lol :)
Jasmine, it's so hard keeping it to yourself, the 12 weeks will go quickly though!

#64 josephine82

Yes I've been lurking for a few days and it wasn't until mum of five joined that I thought I could too as I wouldn't be the only older mum with a bigger family.  Our family is not as busy as it sounds as I have 3 older children (17, 20 & 21) from my first marriage, the 5 year old is from my second marriage & we think ourselves very lucky to have him, a sibling for him would be a dream come true.

I have still got symptoms so fingers crossed all is going well.

Hi josphine82,  congratulations that is so exciting.  Gad to hear there is another older mum with loads of kids in this group.  I am really nervous and hoping for the best.  I have a DD13, DD11, DS10, DS5 and DD 4.  

MY DH is so excited and has wanted another one for so long, but we had come to the conclusion that I was getting too old an that it wasn't going to happen.  I think I am going to just have to relax.

Luckily my number 5 starts school next year so I will have quiet time during the day to take it easy.  I have had a few M/C's in the past so just don't want to have to go through that again.

Now I am dating whether to tell my OB on Monday or wait until my appointment.  I was having my annual checkup so its probably now a waste of time going in so probably best to reschedule.....  too many decisions.  

Sorry for waffling, I think I am still in shock.

Hi ladies,

I got my positive yesterday. No symptoms yet. I'm not 100% sure when I'm due but guessing around the 23rd of July. Very early and nervous he/she wont stay.

Congratulations to everyone on you news. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!

#67 josephine82

Congratulations ToneG, such an exciting but nerve wracking time, whether your a first timer or a 5/6th timer. Fingers crossed for you too.

Mum of five, not waffling, I hear you & it's nice to know we're not alone in our thoughts and feelings about our babies. Relaxing is the hard part, I'm not doing too badly although I have organised OB already & have my first appt Monday. Have a few questions, one being whether progesterone levels are worth checking? The GP has palmed me on that one in June when I had the misc and again this time so I thought I would move on and ask someone more specialised. If the OB says no and has a good reason, I'll let it go. I am just concerned that maybe it could be a reason for misc.

It's gone quiet in here today, hope everyone is well & enjoying the weekend.

Hi ladies!

I got my BFP this morning at 9DPO which gives a EDD of 27th July. It's our first baby and seems utterly surreal at this point to me.

Really hoping this pregnancy is a sticky one and I'll be sharing the experience with all of you for the next 9 months!

#69 Kallie88

Posted 12 November 2016 - 09:21 PM

Welcome Josephine! Great news, i hope this is a sickly one for you, and I'm glad you felt like you could join in :) from what i know progesterone can be an issue with some mc, but it's only one possibility, and I've mostly heard about it with pcos ladies.

Mumoffive: not waffling, it's good to get it out and nice to hear about your family :)

Welcome toneg and sa5h, best of luck in these early days!

I'm just plodding along here, have to wait a couple of weeks before i can book my dating scan for what should be 8 weeks.

Hi all,

Josephine, Vitamin B is really important, and helps with the production of progesterone.  

I suffered from 6 m/c's a  few years ago, and spent allot of time trying to get everything right, and then had 2 very successful pregnancies.  I have always suffered from low Vit B so I now take supplements (make sure Mega B as they cover all).

I also took progesterone suppositories for my DS2, not sure if it helped but I did have my now 6 year old.

So I eat a banana every morning with my weetbix, and take vitamin B supplements.  

Good luck everyone.

I think from memory one of the B vitamins can help with morning sickness as well.

Speaking of which, Friday I started feeling slightly off. Yesterday slightly more off. Today even more queasy. So I suspect it will be in full swing in the next few days. It hasn't stopped my appetite though, I'm eating a lot and that seems to help. Hoping it puts me off bad foods because it's what I'm craving at the moment. Waffles and ice cream with berries for breakfast whoops.

#72 Kallie88

Ooo yummy breakfast lol, being pregnant seems to decrease my appetite, it's started again the last couple of days. Getting so tired too, not looking to this week of wake ups with my daughter

#73 josephine82

Posted 13 November 2016 - 01:29 PM

Ah thank you mumoffive & *Jasmine. I didn't know that about the Vit B's. I will have to get some & start eating some bananas.

Kallie88, I wish I had your problem of decreased appetite! I seem to want to graze all day long & if I don't I get nauseous. Funny how we're all different and even different with different pregnancies.

Oh I didn't even think of how hard it will be for other women with little little ones! I'm starting to feel fatigue, not as bad as my last pregnancy, but my DS is 10 so if I need a nap or a sleep in on weekends there's no drama at all. For the last couple of years I've been straight out of bed at 5.30 am to walk the dog and get ready for the day but I'm wondering how much longer that will last. Especially on decaf!

We're moving bedrooms around to accomodate morning sickness and late night peeing and I am stuffed. Only made it 3/4 of the way through but it will be good when it's done and I have an ensuite. I fell one night down the stairs while tired and still have a giant bruise!

Welcome to all the newbies! Congrats on your BFPs!

I caved and took my first maxalon tablet. Spent all last night throwing up and had a family BBQ today so really did not want to spend the day in the loo (suspicious much?) Anyway, it was great UNTIL I ate something! Straight away back to puking. Really annoying, the Dr keeps saying small meals but it just makes it worse. It would be enough to turn me off food but....baby.
