I thought I’d start this thread now as I can’t see one yet! I got my bfp this weekend on a digital and estimate my due date to be 1st of July, but I have long cycles so I’m anticipating it changing at a dating scan. Anyone else with me for end of June or beginning of July 2018?

KateB2016 Fri 20-Oct-17 12:35:49

Me too! Tested yesterday 9DPO and again today and am due on 4th July smile We've been trying for 16 months and have PCOS was a nice suprise

Hi Kate. That’s so exciting, congratulations. You must be so thrilled after such a long wait. We have a little boy who is about to turn 1 and wanted a really small gap. He was our third month lucky and so was this bfp, so I’m still a little shocked that I’ll be having 2 under 2, ahh!! Is this your first?

KateB2016 Fri 20-Oct-17 22:44:56

Very thrilled smile we've just finished having all our tests done and were due to have a consultation end of November so it's nice not to have to bother with all that now! 2 in under 2 years is ace! My brother in law and his wife had 2 boys in under 2 years, the small age gap is lovely. Are you secretly hoping for a girl or just happy with either?

HarryPotterandtheSAHM Sat 21-Oct-17 09:37:14

Oh that’s wonderful timing then! I’m so pleased for you. Yeah Im excited, it will be hard work though. No I think probably happy with either, last time I wanted a boy but this time I’d happily have a girl too, we did find out at 20weeks last time but we will leave this one as a surprise! I’m thinking about booking an early scan for 7/8 weeks as I don’t think I can make it to 12. With my first I bled a lot so I had scans at 6 and 8 weeks, it was nice to have the reassurance really and broke up the loooonnggg wait..

Hey HarryPotterandtheSAHM and KateB2016 I got my BFP this morning, due date estimated the 5th of July.
This will be our 2nd, have dd 3.

Enwi Sat 21-Oct-17 18:56:44

Can I join please? grin
I’m on the June thread too as according to all the calculators my due date is 26th June but I have a long cycle so have a feeling it might be July!
Congratulations everyone x

noimagination80 Sat 21-Oct-17 19:26:17

Hi Enwi, my first was 3weeks early, so should probably be in the June group too grin

Enwi Sat 21-Oct-17 19:47:52

I am so excited/anxious/restless I think the bigger the support network the better grin

Harry - yes we were thinking of having an early scan as well! 8 weeks for the first scan is waaaay too long! Dying to tell peoole too but wouldn't dare until 12 weeks or the first scan. I don't think we'd be patient enough to not find out the sex! Would be so exciting to leave it until the birth though smile

KateB2016 Sat 21-Oct-17 19:57:16

Hi Enwi and Noimagination80! Congrats on your pregnancies! smile

KateB2016 Sat 21-Oct-17 19:58:16

Enwi is this your first?

Enwi Sat 21-Oct-17 20:11:51

Yes it is. We started trying 10 months ago and were a bit naive about how long it would take.

KateB2016 Sat 21-Oct-17 20:33:57

Yeah we did too. Feels a long time doesn't it each month that goes by? Now it'll just be the next 8 months that drags haha.

Enwi Sat 21-Oct-17 21:21:09

Haha I know what you mean! Honestly I’m most excited to just get out of the first trimester so (hopefully) I can relax a little bit. I’m also very excited to share the news with my family and friends x

HarryPotterandtheSAHM Sat 21-Oct-17 22:52:39

Hello and congratulations!! So exciting to have you here 😊 I think my date might fall between 29th June and 1st July too but I was overdue last time so I’m gambling with a July birth date I think. How are you all feeling, any symptoms? I’m already exhausted and having headaches sad so far no sickness. I had HG last time from 6 weeks so fully expecting it soon but enjoying food while I can

Willieowinsbury Sat 21-Oct-17 22:56:11

Hello all! Can I join? Due 1st July, first baby 😁

KateB2016 Sat 21-Oct-17 23:13:00

Very sore boobs do far! Other than that nothing! You?

Enwi Sun 22-Oct-17 07:14:32

The only symptoms I’ve really been getting are stomach cramps since about 3 weeks 4 days (before I even knew I was pregnant)
Other than just tiredness x

KateB2016 Sun 22-Oct-17 08:05:31

Hi willieowinsbury! Congrats smile and welcome!

Has anyone had first Drs appointment yet? Hoping to book mine this week

Enwi Sun 22-Oct-17 08:32:30

My first appointment is tomorrow morning and I will be 4 weeks 6 days x

Twickerhun Sun 22-Oct-17 08:35:47

Can I join? Due date 1st July. My due date is pretty fixed as we had ivf. This would be dc2 for me.

Twickerhun Sun 22-Oct-17 08:42:55

Is anyone else feeling really breathless? I feel like I have no lung capacity.

KateB2016 Sun 22-Oct-17 09:04:38

Enwi I think you're exactly a week ahead of me smile

Hi Twickerhun. Congrats! Not breathless as in out of breath but I have noticed my asthma has been worse this past week, no idea if that's linked to being pregnant or not though!
