Am I the first? I can't see another November thread.

Ok, my stats, I am 32, have 1 dd (2.1) and edd is 03/11/2011.

I had a mc at Christmas but feel ok about this pregnancy, though I only found out 3 days ago so I may get a bit more panicked as time passes.

Anyone else want to join me in a November baby thread?

Hi 4MadBoys doesn't it fly by? 5! I'm barely coping with one - well done you!

Hello MissInvincible! Eeek! Congratulations! Sorry to hear that you mc too, how do you feel about this pregnancy? I felt like something wasn't right from the start of my last pg and couldn't bring myself to make plans or get excited. This time just feels different. I don't know, I could still mc and so my feelings might mean nothing. I don't feel anxious like I expected although I have been knicker-checking but we all do that, right? <<throws the tmi out there early in the thread to set the tone>>

Nice to meet you an looking forward to getting to know you smile

Hello all!!

I wasn't going to join this as I am very scared but after reading Dirge's posts I decided I would. I had a MC at 6 weeks on Christmas Day and got a BFP this morning. Very very excited and scared but like you Dirge I do feel different about this one. Last time I kept saying "if it all goes well" but I never knew why I was thinking that. Who knows if it means anything but I assume joining an AN thread won't stop the inevitable, so here I am!!

Oh - I could have an 11/11/11 baby!! Which would be one day after DS's 3rd birthday.

<waves manically, eyes up companions and runs to the toilet just in case> grin

DirgeInVegas Wed 23-Feb-11 10:23:05

Hello! Hello! More people! Yay!

Congratulations TerrysNo2 and Chipmonkey, welcome to the thread!

How are you both feeling? I have a twinge of nausea right now but that may be exagerated in my head because I'm pregnant.

TerrysNo2 I am so sorry you mc too and on Christmas day - that must have been especially hard.

Yes, thats exactly what I was like "if this works out", "if we get that far", "if the 12 week scan is ok". I told DH quite a few times that I had a feeling I would miscarry.

I like to think that I knew and because I feel differently this time it means everything will be fine but I am still keeping my fingers crossed.

Ha ha Dirge I think we are going to get along well, I too noticed the dates out of order!! grin

Also, 4madboys needs to add herself or should that be 4madboysamadladyandabump?!?! wink grin

chipmonkey Wed 23-Feb-11 10:52:42

No, 4madboys has already had her dd! She is Nov 2010, not Nov 2011. She was just popping on to say hello!grin

chipmonkey Wed 23-Feb-11 10:55:19

Have to say, I feel fine. But then I am not officially 4 weeks till tomorrow. Over the past few days, I have felt hungry as hell, though. Usually around 5 weeks, I start feeling horribly sick. Looking back, on ds3, I think it was probably bad enough to be classed as hyperemesis, I lost loads of weight.

Bumpwanted Wed 23-Feb-11 11:02:46

Hi girls

Can I join you? I found out I am pregnant on Sat (although I had my suspicions a few days before despite the BFNs I kept getting!). I think I am 4 weeks today and due on the 3/11/11 although my doctors appointment is not until tomorrow.

Feeling super excited but nervous as this is my first one. I keep getting cramps which have been a bit scary but people keep telling me its normal...hope so.

xx

chipmonkey Wed 23-Feb-11 11:05:13

Congratulatons, Bumpwanted! grin With ds1, for a couple of weeks, I felt like I was about to get my period. But I didn't and he's now a big lump of a 14 year old!

Bumpwanted Wed 23-Feb-11 11:13:54

Thanks chipmonkey that's reassuring. Its a bit weird - I have had them since ovulation and it is just like period cramps. I don't really get anything during the day except the odd twinge and then around 4.30pm I get them quite bad into the evening on and off. Hoping the doctor will reassure me tomorrow. I read dehydration can make it worse and I drunk loads yesterday from about lunchtime and it was a lot better...

Forgot to say I am 30 so...grin

Hi Bumpwanted Congratulations! Check out all the 3/11/11 babies - some kind of full-moon-ovulation-spike this month do you think?

I was luck enough to be able to directly refer to the midwives and booked in over the phone yesterday. I have already discussed a homebirth which excited the midwife no end!

Yes, cramping and stretching feelings are all very normal so don't worry.

Chipmonkey I lost weight when I was pg with DD - I went down to 7.5 stone. After December though I am thinking I will embrace morning sickness this time, I didn't have it as badly in the pg I miscarried.

So, who have you told? Apart from us, obviously.

Bumpwanted Wed 23-Feb-11 11:28:14

Thanks Dirge all reassuring! Phew! I actually have no idea if I can refer directly....this is all so new to me and I got pregnant on the first attempt so I thought I'd have more time to prepare!

What exactly am I supposed to be doing!? I have a doctors appointment, I have filled out a self referral form for Kingston Hospital (the only bit I do know is I'd like to have the baby in the MLU there) and I am taking a multivitamin with folic acid in it!

Have told my husband...and you guys, that's it! If I am still pregnant a week on Sunday I will tell my Mum as its her birthday.

TerrysNo2 Wed 23-Feb-11 11:38:18

Chipmonkey Doh re 4madboys blush I am an awful skim reader! I think you are 4 weeks today - as I am 3+6. You gained a whole day now - and every day counts!!

Congrats bumpwanted I am also getting stretchy cramps in my lower abdomen which is nice - I was sure there was nothing left to stretch grin!!

Dirge we have a scary amount in common for only a few hours on this thread! I am going for a homebirth too! Tried it with DS but the little monster went back to back so I was transferred in at the last minute.

I have told DH and the ladies on my charting thread but thats it, might tell my mum as she is visiting on Friday and I told her about my MC (but not when I was PG) My logic is that if you would tell them about a MC then tell them about PG. Still can't decide if I want to tell anyone else, although do want to shout it from the rooftops!!

TerrysNo2 Wed 23-Feb-11 11:39:41

Ohh bumpwanted we must be close by, I am in Epsom!

Bumpwanted Wed 23-Feb-11 11:42:06

Not too far Terry I am in Wimbledon! Where did you have your first? I can still change from Kingston so if its awful tell me now!

TerrysNo2 Wed 23-Feb-11 11:51:33

I had mine in Epsom which was great, although still don't want to repeat it!! Have heard ok things about Kingston though. What about St Georges, that might be close to you too?

DirgeInVegas Wed 23-Feb-11 12:06:45

*TerrysNo2" My dd was also back to back - although we considered homebirth we decided against because parents said they would turn up (seemed like they felt entitled to be there - DH's and mine). That was all a bit much so we opted for Midwifery care in a large CLU. Wish we'd just told parents to get lost and stayed at home to be honest but hindsight isn't that helpful now!

We haven't told anyone. I agree about your comment if you would tell people about the mc then you should tell them about pregnancy. I told more people I mc than I did that I was pg.

Having said that, I am just enjoying keeping it to myself at the moment. My family were not brilliant with the mc and DH's parents reacted horribly to the news that we were pg. I don't feel ready for all the fuss really or MIL calling every day to ask if I have lost the baby. She was mc-obsessed when I was pg with DD and it all gets a bit depressing really.

I want to stay in my happy bubble of baby-birth-pool-new-slings-daydreams smile
