Got my line at 10dpo
This will be my secomd dc. Torn between delight and fear it will all go wrong. Dd october 3 by my reckoning.
Cant tell anyone except dh in real life so hoping i can get quietly excited here!

natalieand - I've also been suffering with heartburn and cramping. Glad I'm not alone on this!

I'm with you all on the fact that every twinge or pain is making me feel very paranoid...think I just need to relax into it, after all, what will be will be!

Ahh Wicked, they keep you young though right? If it's any consolation I look about 40 grin.

Have already warned OH that it is cheese on toast for dinner tonight, and that I will be retiring to bed at 8pm! This thought has kept me going all day! Now just have to decide whether to watch One Born Every Minute or not - have avoided this series so far while TTC and first few weeks, but fancy watching it now - could end up being a mistake though!

Sal1977 Wed 06-Feb-13 15:59:18

Oh Wicked, I'm up there with you girly! At least you're not on No.1 like me! hahah!

We'll show these young whipper snappers how it's done......after a snooze.....wink

Soupqueen Wed 06-Feb-13 16:32:25

I'm feeling ancient too. I'm 36 and pregnant with my first. After 3 positive tests, I still can't quite believe it and am mostly freaking out.

I've had a lot of cramping for days - that's why I didn't even bother testing until today, I was so sure my period was starting. I've been back and forth to the toilet so many times today expecting it all to be over.

Will I ever relax and enjoy this?!?

Haylebop12 Wed 06-Feb-13 16:44:57

soupqueen I feel like that. First pg I sailed through and it was textbook stuff and healthy dd at the end.

Was extra sick with my 2nd pg and was told "it's good it's good" and getting my hopes up only to have gone for my 12 week scan and bad news. My first milestone is my scan smile I might start to relax then.

Haylebop12 Wed 06-Feb-13 16:48:00

wicked your older dc's will make lovely babysitters!! grin

I second, Hayle, Wicked. I'm happy to recruit your older ones as babysitters!

JellyCurls Wed 06-Feb-13 17:25:54

My tummy is expanding at too fast a rate, I have definite rounding that I didn't have before. Hoping a good trump blush will sort it out but not convinced. Just need to get out of open plan office and into sanctuary of car to see if my theory works.

wicked I am 36 and on dc3 so not too far behind you

Wickedgirl Wed 06-Feb-13 17:43:59

I had awful morning sickness with my other 3, I am praying that I will escape this time round. Surely something must be easier now that I am older? Lol

I don't know when to tell my children. The oldest (girl) will be thrilled but I'm not sure how the boys will feel sad

My youngest is a real mummy's boy will will find it hard.

Haylebop12 Wed 06-Feb-13 18:09:33

wicked hope your boys are ok with your news.

Last pg we told dd almost instantly. She is pretty clued up and listens to everything. She came to the scan when we found out it was bad news. Obviously it was hard and we weren't sure what to tell er but she came to terms with it Instantly. Bit scared this time round to tell her to early.

Don't feel old! I feel the opposite, like a teen mum. I was scared to tell my parents because I felt they might kick me out (I've lived away from home since I was 18 and am recently married so it wasn't totally improbable!) ur they were thrilled. Nw I'm scared to tell the in laws in case they thinking stolen their baby (DH is their youngest but will be grandchild number 1 all round).

I think MS started today. I've felt dizzy all day at work (still got 2 hours to go) and absolutely starving. You know the ache you get when you're really hungry? I had the ache after a massive helping of pasta and so ordered a huge baguette sandwich next door as still had the hunger pangs whilst eating that! Def not normal. I think I'd rather sickness than hunger otherwise ill be the size of a castle, let alone a house!

Drums fingers... 7 weeks to go til the scan...

PenelopeLane Wed 06-Feb-13 19:13:44

Wicked sal and soup I felt the same when looking at the ages <grin> I had DS at 31 though, and turns out that in my area, that's the most common age for a woman to have their first dc so am perfect at least for the demographics of my area!

legally oh no refinances - it is stressful as it is, let alone in your situation! I admit that I had a hmm moment when I did a spreadsheet of all of our paydays until Sept or whenever I'd leave work and realised it's not as many as I thought. But, I'm still excited, and really need to stop buying toys crap for DS!

I am so interested in if it's a girl as this pregnancy does feel different. 20 wks feels like so long to wait to find out!

Pinkush Wed 06-Feb-13 19:27:04

I'm in too! Having a v annoying evening-finished work early so thought I'd make a nice family dinner. DH got in from work and said "not hungry, had a late lunch" and DS threw his on the floor! B******S to any more cooking- pizza and chips all round for the next 8 months!!

penelope what feels different with your pregnancy? mine does too so interested to see if this will turn out to be a girl. didnt have any ms with DS yet its started early this time.
no one on this thread is old! and I think no matter what age we all are were all going to be as exhausted as each other when the new little ones arrive grin
jelly I have gone from looking about 5 months pregnant back to normal today after excessive wind all day. apologies if tmi, managed to get away with it because it didnt smell at all. weird pregnant belly. anyway glad to be back to normal was worrying it was twins confused haha

Artyparty Wed 06-Feb-13 19:35:05

Hi All,
I've been away looking after my sisters 3month old while she had her appendix out: god, forgotten how exhausting it is. Basically haven't slept for 48 hours!
Anyway, hope you ladies are all ok.
Thanks so for the list [mini] - now I can keep track.
Please add me!

I have literally had the day from hell! Hope you don't mind if I vent it here, my hubby was brought up by his nan and grandad so they r equivilant to being my inlaws I was so excited too tell his nan the news like bursting and as soon as I told her she said 'I'm more concerned about your weight than anything else, its not ideal' we were on the way to dunelm mill (a shop full of like bedding curtains homey bits etc) I cried in the shop in secret and most of the way home and have had another cry since! Seriously would it have killed her to say congrats and mention that at a later date the most positive thing she could rustle up was I'm sure ***(my daughter) will enjoy it'

I literally felt like flushing her head down a toilet! So pizza it is for dinner to make myself feel better lol

Sorry just had to get that off my chest

Hi everyone....nice big list now! It's nice to see so many other first timers in our 30's.

Anyone watching OBEM in a sec? I love it but not sure if it's a good idea now I will hopefully be doing it for the first time in a few weelks!?!

Natalie sorry to hear about your rubbish day, it must've really hurt.

PoppetRocket Wed 06-Feb-13 21:03:44

Hello! Can I join please? Got my BFP earlier today... not told anyone, not even DP!!!!
Scared as had MC two years ago. Think I am 6w2d, due 30 September. Just want to get to 8weeks before I tell anyone. This is my first... if it sticks FX!! Feeling sicky, sore boobs, really bad headaches and generally like poo - very different to last time.
Hoping we all have healthy pregnancies smile
