Hello - anyone home??
I have been getting a faint BFP for a couple of days now but as AF was due today and didn't come I guess I can officially join this group. My EDD will be 1st october. I hope to stick around here and that someone else joins soon

I've only just got a faint BFP yesterday, af is due tomorrow so I'm keeping everything crossed.
This will be our 2nd bub, L has just turned 1 on the 7th of Jan.
Congratulations! Looking forward to sharing the next 9 months

Hi Kez - yay!! Hope AF stays away for both of us. This is my second bub too, and my little man is 8 months. Looks like we will both have our hands full.
I'm a POAS addict but the line doesn't seem to be getting darker. With DS I didn't get a BFP until 5 weeks so I'll try not to stress too much.
Any early symptoms for you? I've been napping when DS does as I'm really tired but I can also blame that on the weather and I've had some dull constant cramps but I have heard that can be your uterus getting ready for the job ahead. Apart from that, all good here.
Have a great day!! And judging by the amount of views this thread is getting we should have lots more joining us soon yay!!!

Hi Kez and Happybabies
I too have just found out I'm pregnant with number 2! My first is 15 months.My EDD is October 3, but I'll be having a C-section as my obst doesn't recommend vbac. So that may mean I'll be booked in for Sep... Do you think I'm still in the right group?No preg symptoms yet other than being extremely tired!
Hope you're both well and have an uneventful pregnancy!

Maysie I still think you're in the right group, my last DIG we had babies born from October almost to Feb but we were all at the same PG stages together. I'm also likely to be induced early again as I had pre eclampsia last time and my placenta had deteriorated pretty badly.
As for symptoms, my mouth keeps filling up with saliva, really gross but it was my first symptom last time too. I'm watching biggest loser ATM (hubby records it so he doesn't have to watch it) and have cried all the way through it so I'm blaming hormones for that too
Must go and do some work (I work from home 3 days and 2 in the office but still do full time hours).

Hoping to be able to join this thread!!!
Using the "when am I due" calculator, I will be due first week of Oct 2012... AF is due today..
too scared to test!!!!
I get my hopes up too much every month and think every little niggle is a pregnancy sign, yet then write it off as just AF sign.
However, this month there is so far in the last few days/week - mild nausea, constipation, very windy!! Sorry for TMI! Sore (.)(.)'s, mild cramping but nothing like I get when AF is due...
So.. see I look far too much into everything!!!
fingers crossed that AF is a no show.. this will be our 1st, and if due as I said above.. then would make for a beautiful 2nd wedding anniversary present!

Hi ladies, so pleased to see some others in here now!
I got my first BFP on Sunday (day P was due according to FF - I have slightly irregular cycles) and have tested using ICs every day since to make sure! Getting a bit darker but hoping for a nice, strong dark line in the next few days. FF predicts my EDD as 2nd Oct 2012 and this wil be #1 for us - yay!
To be honest, I am feeling pretty cr*ppy due to a nasty cold and not sure if it is an EPS or not. I know that pregnancy-related rhinitis is a possibility but have felt bad for at least a week, so who knows. I am finding it quite tough only using panadol and nasal saline spray as neither are doing much!
I also have some fairly noticeable cramping and am currently worrying about the potential for an ectopic, so need to see my GP very soon but he seems to be closed this week annoyingly! Suspect this will be the first of many worries during my first pregnancy!!!

Welcome Geisha, Inara and Maysie - nice to see our group growing. Its still pretty early yet so I'm sure we'll have lots more people in no time.
Geisha - I can relate to the cramps but it feels like a dull ache today. I did read that it can be the uterus preparing for the growing it needs to do but it still feels period pains. I can't remember having them with DS but who knows!! I had a shocking cold in early pregnancy with DS too - not fun. Hope you feel better soon.
Inara - what a lovely present that will be. I admire your will power to not test. I was testing last thursday and only got a + on saturday. It has been really faint but still there. And I hear you on the excess wind problem - just another sign that something is going on down there....lol
Maysie - absolutely stay with us in here. You're baby will still be developing at the same rate as all the other october babies even if he/she comes early. DS was born 5 weeks early and I stayed in the same mums group.
Kez - this working/looking after baby/ and being pregnant thing is going to be hard work. I work 2 1/2 days and struggled today. Just need to get through first trimester (or so I keep telling myself).
AFM - I decided to hand over the $$ for a clearblue digital test today and got the pregnant - 2 -3 weeks that I had been waiting for. I had been testing on cheap internet ones but the line was really faint. So I guess this is it now - woo hoo!!!! I will probably hold off seeing my dr for a bit. Last time I was there at 5 weeks and had a dating scan at 6. Caused me lots of stress when they had trouble finding bubs but eventually he was there. I'll just hold out this time.
Anyway - hope you're all well and chat soon

I got a very faint BFP last night on an IC and this morning i got a very obvious BFP on a FRER - infact the second line came up before the control line.
I should be due around the 4th according to the online calcs.
Posted 24 January 2012 - 06:37 PM
I've been waiting for this group to pop up! I got a very faint BFP on Sunday afternoon, and another faint one yesterday morning. I am only due today so i'm going to see if its gotten darker tomorrow morning. That puts me at EDD 4th October. I have a toddler as well - 18 months old.
Even though its my second time round i can't stop thinking about it! Its going to drive me crazy keeping it quiet at work i think, i'm hopeless at secrets! But at least i'll be busy, i work a 9 day fortnight and chase a toddler around the rest of the time. Hopefully i don't get too tired in this first trimester!
Inara - just do it! Testing is part of the fun. Will keep my fingers crossed for you
Maysie - definitely the right group!
My3beauties - we are due on the same day at this stage if both our calculations are correct! Mine is part guess though as this was the first month i was off the pill and i have no clue what day i actually ovulated - we were just guessing!
Looking forward to getting to know all of you over the next 9 months!
Posted 24 January 2012 - 07:23 PM
Thanks all for telling me to stay! This is my first time ever posting on a forum, Loving it so far!
Don't stress about some niggly cramps, I had them with no1 the whole time. But def check with Dr to ease your mind.
Can someone tell me what BFP means? I've figured out most of the acronyms but this one has me stumped.
Posted 24 January 2012 - 07:42 PM
Maysie...BIG FAT POSITIVE!
There is a list of abbreviations under the Newbies Comfy Couch section...sorry can't link as on phone.

OK, so I bought a pack of 3 tests last night. If I still have nothing today I will test in the am...
Thanks for the support! As for will power.. it's more that I am scared of getting that BFN... BUT I want to make sure that I don't drink tomorrow if I am. so I will know I guess within the next 24 hours...
Posted 25 January 2012 - 02:08 PM
This is painful!!!! Every twinge I get I think AF is coming!!!
Have been hungry, and real tired today, even though I had a full good night's sleep. So hard to not build myself up only to be let down!
Posted 25 January 2012 - 02:59 PM
Good luck for tomorrow morning Inara!! I couldn't wait and tested early - I have since done 3 more tests to make sure that the line is getting darker!!
But fully understand the hunger thing! But sometimes I think it's head playing tricks on me! Not tired though so that's a bonus.
Booked into my midwifery clinic today, as they only take limited numbers. Except I got told as a previous patient I would have automatically gotten in!! If only I had known that!!
Posted 25 January 2012 - 03:55 PM
I am Stevie. I am now pregnant with my 3rd due on October 6th. I got myu first (10) VFP's today. (thank god for the ebay tests!!) I went out and got some Frs and got 2 more positives today at about 2pm.
We have been trying since sept.
We have 2 daughters ages 1 and 3.
Much love to you all!.
Posted 25 January 2012 - 04:13 PM
Got my BFP yesterday arvo after being one day late. Then did another test this morning... still - pwew!!! Will continue to test for the next few days (or weeks )
Have been to a few due date calculators online. Most say due 1st Oct, some 28th Sep. This will be bub #2 for DH and I. DS is 17months, and was 10 days overdue!!!
We are both over the moon and can't wipe the smile off our faces
No symptoms for me yet, just super hungry.
Looking forward to sharing the journey with you ladies.
Ed for spelling

Have been waiting for this DIG to start up...
Hi everyone, my name is Nicola, and I am pregnant with bub number 2 (EDD 1 October 2012). We officially found out last Saturday, but I succumbed and POAS a couple of days before that (this is an IVF bub).
I am very excited, but a little scared as well, as DS is only 6 months at the moment...
am looking forward to getting to know you all
Posted 25 January 2012 - 08:19 PM
Hi Ladies! I hope it's okay if I join in too? I got my BFP today (9DPO) and FF calculates my due date to be the 8th of October The first test I did was an IC, and I wasn't expecting to see a line... But then I saw there was a line, VERY faintly! So I raced out and got a digital test and it came up 1-2 weeks pregnant!
It's still sinking in at the moment, it almost doesn't feel real!!
I'm looking forward to chatting with you ladies over the next 8+ months
Posted 25 January 2012 - 09:38 PM
I am due late late September but there is no group for me so I will hang around your group if thats ok with you ladies!
This is my first and was not planned but my boyfriend and I (2 years dating and now living together in a house we own) are very excited but also know there alot of planning before she arrives.
I don't know the sex, but I refuse to call my little bub 'it' so ill alternate between he/she until I know.
My boobs are huge!!! My boyfriend loves it but they are so sore so I tell him to stay away! lol.
I have had a bit of random cramping but it only lasts 10 mins at a time..
I am so excited but I am worried about a miscarrage - chances are low since I am 24 but you never know.
I have changed my whole diet (alot more fresh fruit and steamed veges than before).
See you around ladies!!
Love Tanya and bub.

Hi everyone - happy australia day!!
Hope you all have a great day. We're having my parents around for a bbq and it will be very hard not to tell them about the baby but mum's birthday is in february so I want to wait until then. I'll be 8 weeks then and out of the first danger period so I'll feel better about telling people. I had a miscarriage at 8 weeks when I was 18 so I'm a bit cautious.
I've decided not to rush into seeing my dr this time. I had an early dating scan with DS and it caused me so much stress when she couldn't find him. She ended up doing an internal and there he was. I think I'll go to my dr and then straight to my OB and he can do a scan in his rooms.
Is anyone else not finding out the sex of the baby?? We are going to have a surprise. We have sooo many gender neutral clothes from when DS was born even though we knew he was a boy. We honestly don't mind if its a boy or girl so we thought we might as well keep it a surprise.
Anyway - time to get up and start cooking.
Chat soon xxx
