I've started the new thread - how exciting!!

I hope this thread will bring lots of BFPs, good scan results and healthy new arrivals.

very happy today. scan went well and baby was measuring perfectly for 19+0 which is what I am based on lmp and dating scan!

Jollyb Fri 09-Nov-12 10:32:11

pebs you've brightened up a miserable day at work (I am on a bus between hospitals not skiving on mumsnet I promise).

dorita from my extensive research (googling) on the subject - my conclusion is that you can't interpret much from 1 result. How long has it been since you were last pregnant?

tasmaniandevilchaser Fri 09-Nov-12 13:32:22

great news pebs!! smile.

I had a GP appt today and we listened to the baby's heartbeat with a doppler smile. Been signed off for another week and have to have more antibiotics though, which is not so great.

mrshp hope you're feeling better today, it's understandable to feel rubbish sometimes, just roll with it and a better day is just around the corner.

wilderumpus Fri 09-Nov-12 13:49:30

so happy for you pebs

yay tas for HB but sorry about being signed off sad

dorita I don't know anything about these things sorry. I do know that it is usually best to step away from google at these times though grin

Hi tas - sorry about your granny and all the other uncertainties - sounds like a rotten string of luck. Fx it picks up soo and minitas has been unharmed by all the drama.

Woop woop for the good scan news wilde - get you measuring ahead for dates! Bet it feels good to be 'out' - especially before Xmas so no sneaky non-drinking required.

I like the idea of a baby blanket - embroidered or knitted? Have been seriously considering learning to knit (or relearning, as I used to knit when I was a kid) but think it would be 'way too obvious' to everyone who doesn't know we're trying IFYSWIM.

Glad you're both feeling better dorita and MrsHP, too

Pebs and news from scanland? Hope all is well...

BraveLilBear Fri 09-Nov-12 14:19:43

<shakes head at own stupidity>

I totally didn't scroll to next page... Yay pebs fab news grin

And must be great to hear HB tas tho agree must be rubbish being signed off. Still, if you need the rest, you need the rest. Watch a boxset or something grin

cogitosum Fri 09-Nov-12 14:36:27

Congrats on scan pebs and HB tas

Got very slight period like cramps today but feeling sick with them so hoping it's ok!

Just did another test in the loo at work and it was a fairly strong positive so I'm hoping hcg is rising. Did a CBD this morning and it still says 1-2 weeks which is worrying as lmp was 5 weeks ago so should be 2-3 now

BraveLilBear Fri 09-Nov-12 16:12:41

cogitosum when was last time you tested? There's no point worrying about CBD indicators if it's not been an actual whole week since last time...

cogitosum Fri 09-Nov-12 17:23:44

I took one yesterday morning and one this morning... (I know, I know!!)
It's more the fact that yesterday should've been further along... I ovulated 3 weeks ago - and the last time we dtd was over two weeks ago so it's not possible for me to be less than 4 weeks (so 2 for the CBD indicator)

wilderumpus Fri 09-Nov-12 17:36:22

step away from the sticks cogito! didn't listen to own advice today you are pregnant, congratulations!

is sooooo weird how you just want a bfp... any bfp! and you get one... yay! ... but then you need a better bfp! with lots of different brands! grin

brave is a crochet blanket! been so long since i crocheted tho is quite a mess already blush only started this aft! is my mess tho and so i love it smile

Jollyb Fri 09-Nov-12 17:44:21

cogito when pregnant with my daughter my CB digi results lagged behind by at least a week. Please don't read too much into them. They are inaccurate and there is also huge variation in BHCG levels between women. I know it's far easier said than done and I am very guilty of serial digi testing.

As Wilde said - today you are pregnant!

cogitosum Fri 09-Nov-12 21:04:46

wilder that's exactly how I feel!
jollyb thank you that makes me feel better smile

I love the mantra 'today you are pregnant'!

Dorita75 Fri 09-Nov-12 21:35:56

I agree Wilde Google can be baaaad! Too much information and never the answer you want!!

Jolly I was pregnant in February (mmc at 12wks) first and only time (so far). Only took us 5 months to get pregnant then. Will go and get another blood test next when AF arrives so something to compare with. (See how I'm being certain about AF to try and fool her into staying away?)

Great news pebs

Babys been quiet today so I'm freaking out as usual, 34wks tomorrow, will it ever end?

cogitosum Sat 10-Nov-12 09:41:48

dorita I do the trying to trick my period thing. I had a mmc earlier this year and found out I'm pregnant again this month so I hope it's your month too

I went up to 2-3 weeks on CBD today so hopefully hcg seems to be rising!

Jollyb Sat 10-Nov-12 15:56:32

Great cogito now no more digis for at least another week. They are evil things. That wait with the egg timer arghhh.

Now I think I'm 5 dpo and I may be imagining it but I have super painful boobs. I don't usually get this . . . . .

dorita I like your stylewink

state hope you're feeling a bit brighter and bump is wriggling away. If you really think that your movements are down please do go and get monitored.

Marking my place in order to lurk... <lurks>

<delurks> Actually, just have to blurt this out, because... well, not sure why.

DF had his vasectomy on Thursday, 18th October. Been told it takes around2-3 months for the sperm count to drop low enough for him to be considered infertile and that we should use contraception until that time.

Well, I got my first PP period on Friday, 19th October! I know I usually O around day 21 ish, give or take. Last few days plenty of EWCM, yesterday felt um, romantic ( grin) We had unprotected sex two days ago and this morning...

We don't want any more children (hence the vasectomy!) so what are we doing?! We both had some really low days after the op and he did make a comment along the lines of 'if it happens then it's clearly meant to be' when he got home... but that was at a point when we thought it wasn't even possible because I still hadn't had a period yet (DS3 is approaching six months! shock and he's crawling, too <proud> ).

So, yeah, my LP will probably be shortish as still full on breast feeding, and his count will have been falling over the last three weeks since the op but what if... what if...

I'll be donning my full metal jacket again! grin

Polka2 Sat 10-Nov-12 17:50:13

Marking place for lurking too but humongous YEY for pebs gringrin

(Scuttles off to dark hole leaving a hot pot of tea and buttery crumpets for you lovely ladies!)

tasmaniandevilchaser Sat 10-Nov-12 19:16:05

hi all, hope you're having a good weekend. Thanks for crumpets polka!

hi to manda!!! Can't believe your DS is nearly 6 months smile. Hope that you get some answers to your dilemma soon, that jacket must be heavy!! grin

cogito congrats! and step away from the sticks. Today you are pregnant smile, I've been saying that a lot to myself lately.

wilde and brave thanks for your messages but don't worry about me being signed off, I'm very very happy! I am wiped out and it's a good excuse to do absolutely nothing. I'm not really well enough to be bored yet. Lucky I secretly love Murder She Wrote!!! though have got into CSI Miami and Phil Spencer's secret agent programme as well.

Hope everyone else is ok.

Dorita75 Sat 10-Nov-12 20:40:30

I hope so cogito! Though I've started getting menstrual migraines, since September, very annoying, but they tend to start quite lightly a few days before AF comes, and I've had headache today so not looking hopeful but it ain't over till the fat lady...arrives!

Exciting stuff jolly hope they stay sore!!

Morning all.
Wow, I can't believe so many of my original gang are so far along!! Well done to state, possum, wilde, mumtum and pebs grin
I think I got a BFP this morning, but it's only tentative at this point as I tested 4 days early. But it's a glimmer of hope, the first since my mc in May.
Am so desperate to have a baby I'm praying that this isn't a false alarm. confused

cogitosum Sun 11-Nov-12 12:13:34

Congratulations yikes a line's a line...

yikes, as I have learnt on here, today you are pregnant! Congrats and I hope that glimmer turns into a big ray!

wilderumpus Sun 11-Nov-12 13:08:20
