Found out we were expecting #2 on Saturday, my guess is I'm 4/5 weeks...docs appointment is a week away on Monday.

Anyone else nervous but excited and under 12 weeks?

Forgot to mention I have my work Xmas party this coming Friday, I am worried people will start to suspect something as i am usually one to have quite a few too many drinks and so I think people may question why I am avoiding alcohol! Anyone got any tips?! Xxx

hi hannah congratulations! why do you feel nervous telling your family? re: your xmas party you could say you are hungover from the night before or you're on antibiotics?

I've had my first day back at work and I can't concentrate at all. Just want to tell everyone - even though I know that is an incredibly stupid idea.

How do women cope for so long not telling anyone>??!?!?!?

Hi I'm around 7 weeks I think, found out Saturday told my partner, sister in law as she was trying to pile me with drinks and kept buying alcohol for me and told my mum this morning now they are out of the way don't have the urge to let everyone else know!

And luckily at home already with 11month old so no work to inform this time round thank god!

Congratulations everyone smile

Congratulations all.
Have too just discovered I’m pregnant (with #2).
Due August 2013.
Like others Christmas and NYE will be interesting, might suddenly be on antibiotics!
I have to tell parents this week (as we have a family holiday planned for next summer...abroad), but other than that will wait to tell family at 12 weeks.

I had another question I hope others might be able to help with...after first baby (4 years ago) I fully intended to lose baby weight but didn't (technically I’m obese). Would it be ok for me to decide to start excising more regularly than I previously have (power walking)?

I’m not trying to avoid putting weight on, I just want to make sure I have a healthy, fit and manageable pregnancy.

I planned to start taking a circuit class in the NYE before finding out, might have to swap it for swimming or cycling (any ideas ;)!)

All the best to everyone xxx

Yeah don't get seen straight away and don't get scanned until as close to 12 weeks as poss I haven't even been allocated an appointment yet x

Lucy411 Wed 19-Dec-12 11:02:15

In my experience anyway not sure if its the same everywhere! X

We will see a midwife after 8 weeks, don't even see my gp.
Seems to be managed centrally where we are by the local hospital.

So lovely to hear all the good news. So sorry oven sad

Well, I had a 6 week scan yesterday, heard the heartbeat and saw it flicker. Brought a few tears to my eyes as we had been trying for a while for DC2. I'm in a different country and was treated with a fertility drug so that's why I had an early scan. Saw the nurse today and had everything confirmed and she made sure I was doing all the right things. I will now see a doctor every 4 weeks until 30 weeks, then every 2 until 36 weeks, then every week. So different from the UK. So happy to go back to Scotland tonight and tell my family. They will be over the moon with their wee Christmas present smile Just a shame I have to get an overnight flight with a 2 year old out of the way first, by myself. Hope he's good! Merry Christmas everybody smile
