Newboots86 Sat 24-May-14 21:55:02

Hi Fraggle! I got mine last Wednesday too! Due 2nd February according to mn calculator. That makes me 4 weeks on Monday. I can't really believe it! What Symptoms do you have?

Skye89 Sun 25-May-14 13:47:20

Hi fraggle and newboots and congratulations!
Can I tentatively join? Also got my bfp on Wed, after having spotting on Tues which I mistook for the start of AF.
My edd is 31st Jan but the Jan thread looks to be zooming ahead!
I am 4+1 and still in shock smile

Grotbagstwin Sun 25-May-14 16:01:23

Can I also join? Got BFP yesterday. Also due 31st january. Have a ds aready and been TTC for two years, this month we started with having blood tests to see if I was ovulating, I clearly was grin

Skye89 Sun 25-May-14 16:36:52

Congrats Grot, must be a great feeling!
Have you got any symptoms? So far I only seem to be having very mild cramps and today slightly sore nips (sorry if tmi!). Other than that I feel completely normal which is why I think I'm finding it so hard to believe!

Grotbagstwin Sun 25-May-14 17:33:46

I broke out in loads of spots last week, I never get spots apart from when I first fell pg with ds and DH said then he thought I was. With ds I found out at 6 weeks and I was popping out of my bra by then and going to the toilet so often I thought I had a UTI so I fully expect that in next few weeks.

Is it first baby for you ladies?

Newboots86 Sun 25-May-14 21:11:49

Welcome Skye and Grotbag! Congratulations on your bfps! So pleased for you both. It's so exciting, isn't it? I am very nervous though, so hope we all have sticky little beans! First baby for me. I had a uti just before my bfp, also have sore nips(!) and feel like I have done 1000 crunches! Also finding it hard to believe. We might have an early scan as I don't think we can wait for 12 weeks... When are you going to tell people?

Grotbagstwin Sun 25-May-14 21:53:51

My mum guessed before I did a test and I have told my bestfriend as we are out on Saturday for a big boozy sesh....she will help me hide it from everyone else (she told me the day she got a bfp as we had a night out planned then too) apart from that I am going to try to wait until 10 weeks but think it will be hard as its common knowledge that we have been ttc so get asked all the time. Also I cannot lie for toffee.
I am hoping I get an early scan too if I can convince DH

Skye89 Sun 25-May-14 22:05:48

First baby here grin

DH knows and one of my sisters. Going to tell my mum and everyone else will have to wait until about 10 weeks (if I can hold that long!). Know what you mean about the lying though grot, won't be surprised if I break before then!

When is everyone talking to the doctor?

Newboots86 Sun 25-May-14 23:04:05

I'm going to call them on Tuesday skye. I'm also trying to work out where/when to go for the scan. We told my mum the night we found out but told no one else so far. Will try to hold out as long as I can! Really tough not to shout it from the rooftops!

Grotbagstwin Sun 25-May-14 23:59:06

I am going next week as I take a lot of meds for existing conditions and I cannot remember which I need to stop taking.
It's so hard not to mention it to people we are going to a friends for lunch tomorrow, was suppost to be with a few bottles of wine, friend text tonight saying wine is chilling, I made an excuse saying I need to drive to mums that evening and she said I can safely say you won't be fit to drive, we may have to tell them or they will probably guess but luckily they don't know any of our other friends or family.
We are decorating our spare room ATM (was supposed to be a sewing room) and I found a tiny bib in a drawer, made me go all excited....it is so early so trying to keep a sensible head.

CaramellaDeVille Mon 26-May-14 08:36:24

Hello. I hope you won't mind me popping my head round the door to wish you all congratulations and best of luck. From all of us on the Feb 2014 thread who are enjoying our 3 and 4 month old babies very much. I hope you find as much friendship and support here as we did. Enjoy the journey!

Skye89 Mon 26-May-14 12:01:35

Thank you carmella, that's so lovely of you smile

Newboots86 Mon 26-May-14 20:36:25

Ahh, that is so lovely Carmella. Thank you and congratulations on your recent arrival thanks I'm certainly looking forward to an amazing journey.

EMac66 Tue 27-May-14 16:20:26

Woohoo lots of others in my boat! I got several faint positives yesterday and husband wanted us to go out at 10pm, drive 50 miles to our nearest 24 hour Tesco and buy a Clear Blue digital before he would believe it :D Calndar tells me edd 2nd February. First time parents - freaking out!! So nice to see others on here xx

kalidasa Tue 27-May-14 17:13:55

Hello all, I am due 28th Jan I think but the January thread looks pretty full up. I've known for ages because I have freakishly awful pregnancies (v. severe HG and wheelchair-bound with SPD) and become very ill almost immediately, so have been mostly in bed for a couple of weeks and waiting for this thread to appear! Have to admit I am totally dreading the pregnancy as the first one was so absolutely dreadful and I'll probably drop off the thread for a while once it gets too grim BUT of course it'll be lovely to have another baby at the end of it. DS is 17 months. How old is your DS grotsbag? When are you going to tell him?

Grotbagstwin Tue 27-May-14 17:58:32

Kalidasa my ds is nearly 4, he talks everyday about one day having a baby live with us, constantly tries to get an exprea one of things 'for when a baby lives with us' he has been more desperate for a baby than us I reckon, im thinking of telling him first week of July (just before his birthday) we are going away for his birthday and have a trip to Disneyland Paris booked for Dec, I am hoping I don't get SPD this time round or it will be sightseeing on a mobilty scooter!
Please try and stay on and chat if it gets bad

kalidasa Tue 27-May-14 18:06:21

Oh grotsbag that's really sweet! It must be so exciting imagining telling him. DS is a bit little to understand really, but he seems to have adapted really well so far to me being mostly in bed, he just brings stuff that I can do without moving like books and puzzles and the ipad! I think we won't really sit down and 'tell' him because he's a bit small for that, but if all goes well then we'll start explaining probably once I start getting bigger. Though last time I lost so much weight in the first few months that it took me quite a while to get back to where I started and then start looking bigger.

Grotbagstwin Tue 27-May-14 18:38:38

Im hoping it passes for you rather than gets worse, must be awful. My friend is a few months further than us and her ds is the same age as yours, they haven't told him as they said he is too young but they will get a bouncer out and leave it for him to get used to amd are starting to talk about the baby in conversation! My only problem is DS only wants 'a boy one' we have friends with babies that are all girls so boys are a real novelty to him!

I think I need a name change, something more positive sounding.....determined not to be a misery for next 8 months! grin

Skye89 Tue 27-May-14 19:01:09

Welcome Emac66 and kalidasa, nice to add a few more people to the group!
Sorry to hear about the difficulties you had first time round kalidasa, hopefully this pregnancy will be easier on you.
Does it feel like time is passing really slowly for anyone else? I thought the tww was bad but this is even slower!

kalidasa Tue 27-May-14 19:18:27

Well DS doesn't turn 18 months until later this week, so the nine months of a pregnancy is half his life again! I guess there's plenty of time for him to gradually get used to the idea, I was planning to make sure we've got lots of books and so on that show babies with toddler siblings. Are your two going to share a room or have their own from the beginning?

kalidasa Tue 27-May-14 19:19:47

Thanks skye. Time is definitely passing super slowly for me, I'm fed up of being pregnant again already!

Grotbagstwin Tue 27-May-14 19:23:28

Skye I think it is going slow because the whole world around us doesn't know, once people know it will go quicker until the final 2-4 weeks which will drag!
We bought ds bunk beds when he moved into a bed and while in a cot the new one will go in its own room. The nice thing about a small age gap give it a couple of months and your ds won't remember not having a baby around.

JacktheLab Tue 27-May-14 21:39:32

Ok, I'm going to be very brave and join you all.

Got my +ve this morning, I tried two tests and an ovi stick and they all had lines, albeit faint they are there, so going to be optimistic!

I will be due 7th Feb, this will be our second child, we have son who is 2 and a half, but he's very sure that he doesn't want a brother or sister so that should be interesting!!!

Skye89 Tue 27-May-14 22:29:36

Congrats JacktheLab, my test lines were faint to begin with and now 3 days after af I had two very strong lines today so fingers crossed for you!

Hopefully your ds will warm up to the idea along the way smile
