<whispers into the dark> hellllooooo. Anyone there?

I got my BFP this morning and my EDD date is December 5th. Baby number 1.
Anyone else yet?

Time definitely dragging! We're doing a big clear out today which is definitely helping to keep my mind occupied smile x

Hello all,

Glad to hear your mum was delighted ninja, it's so exciting
DH and I are away for our wedding anniversary this weekend but will be seeing my family tmr. Oddly not tempted to tell yet. Very happy being in our own little bubble until as close to 12 weeks as we can. I don't think DM could hold the secret in (out of excitement)
Bought a baby name book today smile

Congratulations to all the new BFPs, and mama it's brill to know that the excitement doesn't abate smile

DonnaMoss Sat 30-Mar-13 19:02:13

Hello all you lovely pregnant people, can I join please?

Got our BFP on Tuesday, 5 weeks today, due approx 1st Dec. We havent told anyone not even our dd who is 3.8 (she cant keep a secret haha)

Congrats to us all! Xx

Shootingstarsandcomets Sat 30-Mar-13 20:47:46

Oooh lots more bfp's out there, congrats!! I got my scan letter through today for a week on Tuesday- eek! Finally I'll know my edd. DH can't come with me though so am a bit sad to be going on my own but never mind. Really hoping I'm only just pregnant and not too far along. I am definitely fatter already though! I was enormous with my first so will be even worse this time although will probably not go so crazy with the biscuits this time!

Hi donnamoss. Went out for a family meal tonight. Had to hide the fact I wasn't drinking. Wasn't very successful but think I covered myself by saying I would be up early with ds. Eek.

Hi everyone, are we all having a lovely easter?
Wish I'd bought myself an egg now, don't usually bother but seeing as I can't have any wine <grumps> grin

Lovely Easter but I'm craving choc too Clare. Wish I could nick some of ds egg but I think he'd notice. Pants.

MildredH Mon 01-Apr-13 11:40:02

Spotting this morning sad

Praying its ok but pretty worried it might not be.

Shootingstarsandcomets Mon 01-Apr-13 12:41:59

Fingers crossed its nothing mildred, have you got an EPU you could ring?
I'm craving chocolate too. Not even had a creme egg this year. Having just lost 3 stone of baby weight from having ds I don't want to start piling on the pounds straight away but chocolate mmmmmmmmmm

Dasie Mon 01-Apr-13 13:22:55

Happy Easter everyone grin

Some spotting can be quite normal Mildred but I understand how it makes you worry!! Fingers crossed it stops asap!

I have been having quite a bit of nausea which is quite new to me, never had it with previous pregnancies (1 mc, 1DD). Hoping it stops me eating every easter egg in the place smile

Hope everyone is doing ok xx

13loki Mon 01-Apr-13 14:09:29

Hope it's all OK mildred

ouch, ouch ouch boobs. Which is painful and annoying, but very welcome after having very few symptoms last time, which didn't end well. Also very nearly threw up at lunch.

Just realised that I have no plans for DS and DD when I have this baby. Which is a long way off, but I've decided to panic early! I know a few people who would look after them, but they live about 40 minutes away. Given that DD arrived about 35 minutes after I woke up, that may be too far. My parents came to look after DS when I was in labour, but they live in Australia and I live in Sweden, and they are visiting in July/August, so they won't be able to visit so soon again. I really don't want in-laws, they stress me out too much, especially if they are staying with us for weeks on end waiting for a baby.

Arrrgh. Maybe our new neighbours will be lovely and will look after them.

MildredH Mon 01-Apr-13 14:35:44

Thank you girls. Sadly I don't have a very good feeling about this.

I think EPU would be closed until tomorrow but in all honesty if it turns out to be a chemical pregnancy then I will retest in a week or so.

Trying to distract myself but its hard to think about anything else sad

kyz1981 Mon 01-Apr-13 15:15:32

Fingers crossed Mildred That all is well-

Not feeling to bad- just moody as hell and tired.

Hope everyone has had a lovely easter

Weaselicious Mon 01-Apr-13 16:28:02

Fingers crossed mildred sending lots of positive thoughts your way. X

weechops Mon 01-Apr-13 17:24:38

Hi everyone < peeps nervously in>. I tested today at 10dpo and got a faint bfp! smile I'm testing again tomorrow to make sure but I'm so so nervous and excited.

This will be baby # 3 after 10 cycles of trying and a mc in January. Due December 13th.

Really chuffed to see my old thread buddy taking here smile < waves madly>

TakingTheStairs Mon 01-Apr-13 19:01:30

hi Weechops <waves like a crazy person back> so pleased for you!!!

Congratulations flowers

And Mildred, sending lots of positive sticky bean thoughts your way xx

Fingers crossed all is well Mildred.

Weeeeeeeeeechops! Congrats. Exciting to see so many people from previous threads here.

Well I tested with my next clearblue and its come up as 3 weeks plus. Which is great cos lots of hcg but I'm only 2 weeks and 3 days! confused unless I ovulated earlier than I thought but I got my positive opk so I thought I had a handle on when I ovulated. At least its gone up from 1-2 weeks which is what I had last week grin

2Labradors Mon 01-Apr-13 20:21:16

Hello can I join please.

Got my BFP on Tuesday evening and again on Weds morning. Had a nose bleed the day before which I only really get in pregnancy, and said to colleagues that I was feeling 'strange'.

We have a DD and DS already, so this will be #3 for us. Due on 2nd Dec I think. My period in February was quite light so will mention to midwife when I get an appointment.

I'm really excited but so anxious about this pregnancy, sure I wasn't like this previously. I've had period type pains and stretching feeling all week, it's not hugely painful just uncomfortable but I can feel something going on all the time. I wonder if this is because its baby number 3? I remember my uterus pains after having my 2nd baby which were considerably stronger than 1st time, every time I breast fed at first. I'm hoping this is a similar sort of situation. My tummy feels like I've been doing lots of sit ups. My boobs are mega painful too and I have waves of nausea.

Congratulations to you all.

Mildred I really hope all goes well.

Hi all, well I'm off to see the GP this evening to get my referral moving for hospital. Went to a hospital out of my catchment area with DD and really keen to go back there again as it was fab, but with things changing all the time in the NHS who knows...

13loki Tue 02-Apr-13 10:09:52

Just struggled through the most awkward phonecall trying to make an appointment for the midwife. They don't do interpreters here if you speak english, so I struggled through with my ridiculously bad swedish. My appointment is May 3rd. I'll be about 9 1/2 weeks then. Congrats on the BFPs.

Honestly, who chooses to have a baby in a foreign country?

Oh god taking yes there is! I'm a twin. My aunt had a twin and my nan had twin sisters. <buries head in the sand>
I just got my first midwife appointment too. 30th April. Ill be almost 9 weeks and that's agggggggeeeeeess away!

13loki Tue 02-Apr-13 10:33:46

Quiet Yours is an age before mine. And you are due after me*

Stamps foot. Bet I wouldn't have to wait so long if I spoke the language. Actually, I know I wouldn't, but waiting is better since I will get a midwife who speaks english.

*Not actually sure, very fuzzy on dates, which is frustrating as I was absolutely certain with DD and DS.

I know Loki a whole 3 days is an age! This is gonna be slow until my first appointment.

TakingTheStairs Tue 02-Apr-13 11:17:12

oh loki that must be very frustrating, and exhausting!

eeeeeeekkkk Ninja, how exciting!! I'm quite jealous, I'd love to have twins. envy My GP said that there's no point getting early scans until you're about 6/7 weeks, but maybe you could go for a private scan around then to know whether you have two in there rather than waiting for your 12 week scan?
