Only just got a faint line, and period only due today so seems a bit unreal esp as can't find any thread for May yet, but just popping up to say hi. Due May 6th...

Me! I guess... just tested - not worked out due date, but will take your word for it as May 7th for now! I am sitting in shock having just tested! V faint line too, and period only due today too.... Not even told dh yet as didn't want to wake him. Can't believe I'm posting!!

surelythisoneisnttaken Sat 25-Aug-12 14:05:21

Congratulations!!!!

whyismymindblank Sat 25-Aug-12 17:06:11

Congratulations to you too! Got round to doing the calculator thingy & due date was May 4th. DH's unsurprising response 'May the fourth be with you...'.
Is it sinking in for you yet? I've not managed to stop thinking about it all day - good thing I'm not at work til Tuesday,hopefully I'll be able to concentrate by then

Hello! Got my BFP today on after two very faint positives and two negs.

I knew I was preg as this is my second and I had exactly the same symptoms beforehand. It was still a shock and I'm not sure it had sunk in properly!

Hello everyone! I got my BFP today as well. EDD is may 2nd. I have a 10 month old DD so we are a bit shocked (first month of trying and DD took a while) but very excited!!

nodecent i knew before the BFP as well! how old is your DC?

surelythisoneisnttaken Sun 26-Aug-12 07:05:50

Hurrah there are a few of us already! I knew too! Just had a funny feeling. This is DC2 as well - DC1 has just turned two. It's just starting to sink in though I still feel like I might jinx it! goldmaple at 10 months my DC1 was still waking 8 times a night so there's no way we'd have managed to create another one!

whyismymindblank Sun 26-Aug-12 08:57:13

I knew as well - but then I prob should by now - it's dc4!

Haylebop12 Sun 26-Aug-12 09:06:03

I'm marking my place as in testing tomorrow!
However although AF is due tomorrow I had a mmc the end of June so concerned my cycles are longer then they uses to be!
Will keep you updates!

Well done in all your BFPs ladies!! How exciting!

Haylebop12 Sun 26-Aug-12 09:07:38

Just to add mind, I am hit hopeful for a bfp!
Dd is 3.7 :-)

whyismymindblank Sun 26-Aug-12 09:13:59

Good luck haylebop smile

Haylebop12 Sun 26-Aug-12 09:15:55

Not* hopeful, damn you iPhone!

Nodecentnickname Sun 26-Aug-12 09:19:44

Hello all
Have you tested yet Hayle? Good luck.

goldmaple my dd is 2.5. I'm panicking at having to deal with two next year!

Haylebop12 Sun 26-Aug-12 09:25:55

No not yet. AF due Tomorrow so leaving ur until
Then. Not hopeful tbh, reckon cycles a bit messed up since mmc :-/ and I've mistimed dtd!

JellyBellyMummy11 Mon 27-Aug-12 03:36:12

Hello ladies, can I join??! Got my bfp on Sunday...think edd is May 5th!!
Can't quite believe it...Will be number 2, and wasnt even trying, as DS1 is only 9.5m! So to say we r a bit shocked is a major understatement....and have experienced a little emotional rollercoaster already since finding out...!

Hello can I also join? Got bfp last night after a negative on Thursday (day my period was due). Like so many I also knew! It was out second month of trying for DC2, we already have DD 3.5 who is constantly asking for a baby...
Feel a bit shell shocked, did due date calculator and due May 1st. Think I'm already starting to feel a little nauseous, surely it's too early?!

Haylebop12 Mon 27-Aug-12 09:29:45

Well done ladies! Congrats in your BFPs. Period due tIday, nothing yet but as I'm working till 6 I may test in the morning so I use FMU!!

whyismymindblank Mon 27-Aug-12 09:37:01

Little - don't think it's too early, I'm already feeling sick sad

Well it's definitely good old morning sickness, I've gone off tea and coffee already as well. I was really sick until about 16 weeks last time so this is the bit I've been dreading! I'm not even 5 weeks yet though, I thought I'd have a wee bit of time before it started. Bit worried about keeping it quiet at work, I'm sure I'm going to show much earlier this time (especially as I'm about half a stone heavier than I was last time I got pregnant). Eek!

Hi, also apparently having a May baby, I tested last night and got 2 faint lines, did 2 more this morning with fmu and got a faint line on an ic, and a proper result on a proper stick. I knew when I tested I would be, feeling very peeky in the afternoons, AF was due last Wednesday/Thursday but we were on holiday so waited till we got home last night.

Congratulations to us grin

10storeylovesong Mon 27-Aug-12 19:34:10

Hi all, I've been waiting for a May thread to appear. Congrats to everyone with bfp's!! My edd is 1st May. I'm 5 weeks on Wed and already panicking as have been feeling sick for last weeks which has now stopped and been replaced by cramping pains so I'm frantically knicker checking every 5 mins! This is my first so no idea what to expect!

Congrats to everyone!

10storey - I am getting the cramping pains as well (I actually had a shooting pain like I had pulled something when I stood up quickly earlier)

I do remember this from last time though so I'm not overly worried. And my sickness didn't start til 6 weeks last time so i wouldn't worry at this stage as there is plenty of time for it to return! Obviously if the pain gets too bad them maybe get checked out?

Princesslovelyboo Mon 27-Aug-12 20:44:54

I got the stabbing pain earlier when I stood up too, this is dc 3 and a I remember it from last time too. As for the sickness going, I would enjoy it while you can, but if you are worried, make an appointment with your gp.

I currently have afternoon sickness and why oh why does it feel like someone is tweaking my nip's all the time????? Really really sore!!

DancingLola Mon 27-Aug-12 21:07:35

Hello, can I join too! I got a bfp on Thurs, and by my calculation I'm due on 1st May. I have a DS who is 5 in December, so my last pregnancy seems a long time ago now! No symptoms yet, apart from being more tired than normal. Am waiting to see if I'll get the terrible morning sickness I had last time though...

JellyBellyMummy11 Tue 28-Aug-12 04:19:16

Gosh...I thought t sickness and extra tiredness would take a bit longer to kick in too! Didnt have t sick feeling first time....hope it doesn't turn into more than just t feeling, don't think I can manage any throwing up with my 9.5m old DS...jeez...I'm not sure how I'm gonna manage with 2 under 2....confused

Arghhh....can I do this?!
