Wow! First here. Well actually mine #2 is due 30th Sept by dates but as DD was 10d late I guess Oct is the place to be. I was in Oct 14 so Oct 16 seems to be the right place to be. Anyone else?

leoniethelioness Thu 21-Jan-16 17:28:39

Hi Kitty. 😸😻 Going by the dates, it's 28 September for me. Glad you started this thread! How old is your DD? Were you trying for long for this one? This will be our first and we conceived on our second cycle.

leoniethelioness Thu 21-Jan-16 17:30:18

P.S. Do you like cats or are you a vet, or both?

Cherryberry1 Thu 21-Jan-16 17:40:57

Hi ladies! I'm joining you too. This will be DC2 with EDD of 25 Sept which was the same for my little boy who chose to arrive in October instead. October 2014 too actually, Kitty

Our dates are pretty close to each other, Kitty and Leonie

kittyvet Thu 21-Jan-16 18:53:13

Pleased to meet you both! Both leonie smile my LG is 15mths. We have been trying since my periods came back in Nov and I am a little shock because my first took over a year to conceive. I haven't had any symptoms yet except tingling boobs. Got my BFP this morning. I came to MN quite late in my last pregnancy but I found the group really supportive and wish I had the support in the early days. Yes its great to have close dates and would much rather be early in the month than the last poor person to go into labour smile

leoniethelioness Thu 21-Jan-16 19:15:40

I had my BFP yesterday! I can't believe it.

soundsystem Thu 21-Jan-16 20:03:46

Hello! DC2 for me as well, EDD is 5th October. DD1 was born early November 2014 so I think there's a few of us with similar gaps!

Congratulations everyone!

kittyvet Fri 22-Jan-16 05:29:27

Welcome sound smile nice to have a mix of mums on their second and newbies!

missybct Fri 22-Jan-16 10:01:50

Hi all! grin
Got my BFP on Weds - I'm very very early and due 2nd October grin This will be my first, OH's second - he already has a 6 year old son from previous relationship who we have jointly with his mother.
I have to admit this was a planned/unplanned/go with the flow - I can pinpoint exact date of conception wink - one shot and I'm up the duff grin - very grateful.

I've got heavy boobs and a bit of cramping, had waves of nausea but so far, it's just my back that is giving me grief!

I'm 31 (my birthday was last Thurs!), OH is 31 in March. Engaged, live together yardyah grin

Cherryberry1 Fri 22-Jan-16 11:41:35

Congratulations everyone!

Yes, I agree Kitty. I'm hoping DC2 is like their brother and arrives after the due date because I ended up being the last one to go into labour with my son in the antenatal group I was in. I didn't mind those people (and people from our antenatal classes) asking whether DS had made his appearance yet But I ended up quite annoyed with having to smile and answer politely "No, I'm still pregnant" to everyone else in real life. (DM was the worst!). By the time I was in labour, DH and I had already agreed in future we will be vague with telling people due dates so we can avoid it.

I'm still breastfeeding DS and my cycles were all over the place but we'very managed to conceive on our first month.

Happy belated birthday Missy!

soundsystem Fri 22-Jan-16 12:40:10

cherry I'm adding a week to the due date

missybct Fri 22-Jan-16 13:01:50

Thank you cherry grin - very nice 31st birthday present! Congratulations to all flowers

Where are we all from? I've never been part of an antenatal group online... just a tad excited! grin

soundsystem Fri 22-Jan-16 18:51:50

Doh I just realised I posted half a message blush

I meant I say I'm adding a week to the due date when I tell family to avoid (or postpone!) them hassling me!

soundsystem Fri 22-Jan-16 18:53:18

missy happy belated birthday! I'm in East London.

kittyvet Fri 22-Jan-16 19:15:16

Welcome missy! You are lucky! It took a targeted and sustained plan with DH to get preggers this time! No mean feat with a non sleeping 15mth old... But it was worth it as here I am!
I am still BF too cherry and didn't ovulate until about d25 I think. So the MW will book me for a scan based on my LMP of 13th Dec but baby is going to be WAY later than when they think!
I am in Dorset smile

SimileMilly Sat 23-Jan-16 20:03:14

Hi can I tentatively join? We had a MC at the beginning of December but got a BFP again this morning grin. Trying hard not to get toooo excited. I haven't had a period yet so due date end of sept/beginning of October I think.

All being well this will be DC2 for me, DD is 3. We're just outside Edinburgh.

doleritedinosaur Sat 23-Jan-16 20:29:57

I need to post here as I can't tell anyone else in RL until after 12 weeks when my ten month old can reveal the news to people. I got a BFP yesterday!

I had a chemical pregnancy around 19th December so dates could be end of September, will find out at scan I guess.

I'm still breastfeeding & been properly trying since October/November as wanted siblings close in age.

It's not really hit me yet, though the exhaustion & nausea has. Also my already large chest has increased further so that might give the game away.

I'm in the Midlands, moved up here several months ago & now definitely need to finish the final house projects.

kittyvet Sat 23-Jan-16 21:07:34

Hi millie and dinosaur. I am sorry for your losses but hopeful that these beans will stay sticky! Only a couple of weeks and we are through the riskiest time. It's so hard not to tell people. I nearly let it slip twice yesterday at work, as one of my coworkers is also TTC and we were talking about our previous births. I almost said 'well this time'... My last pregnancy was kept very quiet until 20 weeks but this time I want to shout it out loud! Have told a couple of friends my sister and my mum. Won't share it further until I have had my scan. Anyone feeling sick yet? I have mild waves of nausea intermittently!

doleritedinosaur Sat 23-Jan-16 21:19:53

Thanks Kitty, I didn't know until it happened & it obviously made me more fertile.

I'm constantly nauseous now, I was off & on but today unless I eat every hour it won't go away which I didn't have until 8 weeks last time. Plus I have quite bad heartburn which I didn't have until late last time.

It's really hard to not let it slip! I promised OH though that I won't.

SimileMilly Sat 23-Jan-16 21:30:55

I've told my best friend and that's it. Other than sore boobs - which ached even going over speed bumps in the car?! DO NOT remember this last time!

DP doesn't want us to get our hopes up at all but I'm finding it hard to contain my excitement.

SimileMilly Sat 23-Jan-16 21:31:32

Missed half my sentence... Other than the boob issue I've got no symptoms!

Cherryberry1 Sat 23-Jan-16 23:25:04

Waves to everyone!
Congratulations to the new ladies!

Sound I'm thinking of being a lot more vague (although I'll see just what I can get away with) and try "Baby is due sometime in Autumn...." then just make a joke about not sharing the due date. This will just be to DM and my in-laws.

flowers to Milly and Dinosaur for your previous losses.

I'm in Greater Manchester.
We have the in-laws staying with us over the weekend and I have survived Day 1 (involving being on my feet for most of the day and single-handedly cooking and cleaning up after everyone which will continue tomorrow). Oh-the-joy!

I hope you're all enjoying the weekend!

missybct Sun 24-Jan-16 08:10:24

Hello Millie and Dinosaur - welcome grin - sorry for your previous losses and much crossing of fingers that these are sticky for you flowers.

I realised I asked where everyone was and didn't reply confused. I'm on the Suffolk/Norfolk border - quite literally! We have a lovely cottage (rented) but as it's only 2 beds and about the size of a postage stamp, we realised at Christmas with OH's son/my stepson that we definitely need somewhere a bit bigger! Bit reluctant to move out, but fortunately tenancy is up in February so have a while to think about it.

Symptoms wise, it's mainly backache and intermittent achy boobs. I've had some mild nausea, usually in the evenings. That said, I woke up this morning at 3am with a left boob that felt like it was going to explode!

Oh cherry - the joys of running a household! That was me last night albeit with just OH and stepson - cooking sausages and mash whilst they watched Jurassic World - standard weekend!

How is everyone this Sunday?

NotWithoutMyMerkin Sun 24-Jan-16 08:55:35

Can I join? Edd 29th sept but nhs are bound to date me later as they don't take into account my long cycles/late O. This will be #2
Congrats everybody
