Thread number 2 ladies.
It's a perfect Christmas present for me! fgrin

BunnyBaby Sat 14-Dec-13 10:34:50

Hello everyone! Looks around and waves.

I was on December bus and TTC#3 thread. Yesterday when af was
due I poas and got the faintest BFP, today i repeated and a much darker line grin so both me and the test are most positive!

My stats are:

BunnyBaby 36yo (DS1 5, DS2 2) EDD 25th Aug

Am feeling queasy already and given I have two boys who only gave me morning sickness at 6 weeks, perhaps this one is pink (squee!).

Will be just as happy with a blue one as I keep everything, so will have lots of lovey hand me downs.

I am an Aug birthday so not worried about being youngest in class. In fact is this one is like DS2 he/she will be desperate to get to school to keep up with the other two.

Looking forwards to getting to know you all xxx

BunnyBaby Sat 14-Dec-13 10:44:40

Have read back through the posts and so sorry for this who have suffered losses.

Choccy, hoping all is well, ditto the EPU advice, not sure what is happening for you, my SIL had bleeding early on and it was just a cyst and fine. Fingers crossed for you xxx

miserywaterfall Sat 14-Dec-13 11:14:17

Oh choccy, I hope you are okay! Thinking of you x

So sorry to hear about the loss of mums sad My mum is absolutely amazing and I can't imagine life without her, so really feel for you guys x

miserywaterfall Sat 14-Dec-13 11:19:38

Welcome and congrats bunny!

FiremanSamsWife Sat 14-Dec-13 11:21:10

Hello Bunny and congratulations! Hope you're feeling a bit better today Ruggle - so hard to take it easy when you have other kids to deal with and you can't tell anyone yet!

Really hoping Choccy is ok, chems are so horrible but hoping it's not that.

I'm hoping I'm not on the way to miscarriage number 3, lines don't seem to be getting any stronger and I had a tiny bit of brown when I wiped this morning. I just wish Icould fast forward a few months! sad

RoseHoney Sat 14-Dec-13 11:24:58

Oops accidentally posted on the old thread instead of this one!

I've just received my scan date through the post! I only called the doctors surgery on Wednesday to inform them and book my midwife app, I wasn't expecting an appointment for weeks yet! Anyway it's 11th February smile seems forever away but I'm sure it'll go quickly.
Hope you're all well.

RoseHoney Sat 14-Dec-13 11:27:26

Just caught up. Hope you're okay Choccy!

miserywaterfall Sat 14-Dec-13 11:27:40

Brilliant Rose something to look forward to in the post-Xmas lull smile

I slept for 11 hours last night, haha. Feel slightly better, less pain today from the UTI so hoping it is clearing up fast! Was planning on Xmas shopping today but staying at home to rest and staying out of the peeing rain and wind!
Anyone have any nice weekend plans? x

Been light reddy brown bleeding. It's how it started last month. I hate this, been crying to dh this morning, I hate my body this is just so shit.
Going to ring someone Monday if it doesn't stop, it needs checking why this is happening.

funkymonk Sat 14-Dec-13 11:33:58

Try not to panic choccy. I've had brown stuff with red mixed in some days, every day for exactly 2 weeks today. I've had 2 scans so far and everything looking ok to date. Don't lose hope.

So sorry about your mum Dorothy. It'll be an odd Christmas for you this year without her here. I'm sure she would be very proud of you and your sister putting together the Christmas dinner in her absence! Xx

FEEdec Sat 14-Dec-13 11:35:30

Shak & Friend - so sorry that you've both lost your mum recently. It must be hard to be without them at this time of year and when you're newly pregnant.

Choccy - how are you? why do you think this pregnancy is chemical? thinking of you and hoping its not what you fear

xx

Hollyjokes Sat 14-Dec-13 11:41:13

Choccy I'm keeping everything crossed that all is ok. Quite a few of us on this thread have had spotting and have also had early scans and everything looks fine. I really hope that it's the same for you.

Misery, no real plans. Supposed to be scrubbing the house today but keep having to take breaks as I just have no energy! DH is just making me some lunch to try to settle my stomach a bit as I'm so nauseous. Haven't been sick since first thing this morning though!

Welcome bunny! It's really interesting to hear how your pregnancy seems different to your other ones. I'm really sick this time and was last time too so I think I could be having a second girl. I'll be really surprised if it turns out to be a boy!

Don't lose hope Choccy - I had a brownish bleed early on with my first pregnancy and he was absolutely fine xx

On another note. We are thinking of telling the family at Christmas, although I probably will only be 8 weeks or so, we thought it'd be a nice christmas present but I read another thread on here where lots of posters were quite scathing about the idea. i told our families early when i was pregnant with my son as I always thought if they worst happened I would have their support. Everyone else was told after 12 weeks.

What are you all thinking of doing about telling people?

Morganlove Sat 14-Dec-13 11:54:25

FEE we are thinking of telling close family at Xmas. Won't get my scan til mid Jan but think it will be a nice present for them.

Had a tiny bit of brown CM when I wiped on Thurs night and then nothing until a little bit more today. Very nervous indeed but keep trying to tell myself it's common. Saw the midwife today (first apt) and she said to ring the EPU on Mon if it's still happening but didn't seem overly concerned. Trying to take the lead from her and not panic. Easier said than done.

Fee I had the same last month sad

FEEdec Sat 14-Dec-13 12:08:53

Choccy - I'll keep everything crossed for you. It is worth seeing if you can have a scan? when I had my bleed at about 6 weeks with my son, I saw the GP and got an early scan.

Morgan Try not to panic (easier said than done indeed!) lots of people have all sort of bleeds in early pregnancy and go on to have normal pregnancies. I keep trying to push any negatives thoughts out my head as I spent my first pregnancy convinced I wasn't got to have a baby at the end of it which I think spoilt it a bit.

I'm booked in for a private scan on Tuesday as I'm not sure of my dates so I'm (nervously) hoping it all goes ok.

They won't look til 6 weeks, I'm only just over 4 sad

I bled with ds but I was about 7 weeks and all ok. If the bleeding slows I'm hoping all ok

miserywaterfall Sat 14-Dec-13 12:28:03

I'd tell you to try to relax Choccy but this week has shown me that that is impossible to do when something like this happens. At least try and rest a bit if you can. x

miserywaterfall Sat 14-Dec-13 12:32:25

Also, FEE I was thinking of telling my parents at Christmas too. I'll be 8 weeks exactly on XMas day and I, like you, want them to know first and their support if anything was to happen would be much needed. Can't understand why people would be scathing about someone else's decision of when to tell. There is just no figuring some people out fconfused

Oh choccy my hearts goes out to you!!! X x x

talulahbelle Sat 14-Dec-13 12:55:14

choccy I really hope this one sticks. I've had three chemicals myself and know how much they hurt emotionally.

FEE we are telling our family over Xmas. We have a scan at 8+2 on Monday, so all being well we are going to start to tell people then.

morgan I've had a tiny bit of brown and also beige-ish CM, I'm hoping it's all OK but the wait to find out is so hard.

Today I have mainly been eating. Still nauseous, not as much as I was a couple of days ago but it does come and go. DH wanted to go out to lunch and I had to veto that idea though, just can't face sitting in a hot noisy pub. So today I'm mainly wrapping presents and doing a bit of housework, interspersed with sitting on the sofa MNing.

Any of you girls feel like your showing all ready?? I've had a client give me the knowing look today, I feel as though I look twelve weeks already!!!

miserywaterfall Sat 14-Dec-13 13:51:41

Had 11 hrs sleep last night and I am ready for a nap right now! Was a total energy drink junkie before I found out I was pregnant, so am totally missing my caffeine right about now!

miserywaterfall Sat 14-Dec-13 14:04:50

MissV that's so cool you are showing already smile

I have a really mismatched figure, with small boobies, big round tummy and huge hips, so to be honest, I don't think I'll be able to tell when I am showing for a long while, lol!
My doctor asked to check my stomach at my appointment, I think he maybe thought it was a big pregnancy belly I had rather than just my normal fat one fgrin
