Jan 2020 - Thread 3(1000 Posts)
Brand new thread ladies! We went through the last one so fast! Let’s hope this one brings us lots of lovely scan photos.
MynameisMrG EDD 7/1/20 DC #2
Just following on from your message on the last thread @Mirana, I would have felt the same way. It’s hard to look at someone who is doing something so harmful to that unborn baby and not question things in my opinion.
Hello, I'm new here! Due our first child in January, though we're not sure on the dates. I've been on contraception pills for almost 8 years, stopped taking them in April and fell straight away! I have no idea when I first bled, or how long my normal cycle is. I've calculated from first day I stopped taking pill which would make me due around 10th Jan, however we also did a clear blue test that said I was 1-2 weeks from conception, which I recalculated as more roughly 16th Jan. We've booked an early scan (at assumed 9 weeks) to date us! Midwife booking appointment isn't until 11 weeks so god knows when NHS scan will be! Anyone else had experiences like this before, with coming straight off contraception?
I don’t have any experience of that @NewbieMam but I wanted to say welcome and congratulations 😊 I’m sure someone will be along who can help
Thanks @mynameisMrG for the new thread!
I know it's really unhealthy and unhelpful to compare yourself to others, but seeing her outside smoking when I was going through so much stress when I won't even eat cheese if I can't see it's pasteurized was really sad I do hope she's okay and me glaring at her then bursting into dramatic tears didn't spook her too much (although I imagine others have probably said something by this stage).
Thanks for the new thread @mynameisMrG

@Mirana I would've been fuming! Some people take things for granted!
Hi all- I’m going to be a new mama 31/01/20 ☺️
Excited to be part of the Jan 2020 group !
I have my booking appointment tomorrow and I have no idea what to expect! 😩
Scan isn't until 24th June (although I have already had an early one at 7 weeks😍)
It’s a bit dull to be honest @splishandsplash. Lots of form filling and questions.
2nd DC, first just turned 4
I’m so glad this thread is still expanding. It’s nice to see I’m not going insane and others are experiencing similar bursts of emotions 🙈 hope everyone’s excited for 12 week scans.. I’ve only got 3 more weeks to wait thank god!!!
Just following from last thread @Mirana I would've felt exactly the same, I'm still in shock I think and can't quite believe I'm pregnant! I feel like I just need a scan so I can believe it's real! We were TTC for 8 months before it happened so we thought we'd never get there I know it's not long but TTC feels like a lifetime no matter how long!
Thanks for new thread!

Are early scans all arranged privately? Are they expensive?
@splishandsplash I had mine today, lots of questions, urine sample, blood test and carbon monoxide test (just blowing into a machine) was done in about 40 minutes
@winter138 we looked into it and it was around £90 near us and by the time they could fit us in we were 2 weeks away from NHS so decided to just wait.. a few woman here founds scans under £50 i believe xx
Hi new thread!
DD 11/01/2020 first pregnancy
Thanks for the new thread MrG
Currently 9 weeks, EDD 1/1/2020. This will be our first
Had 8 weeks scan last week and all looked good but anxious to get to the 12 week mark like everyone else!
Booking in appt this weekend.
I've also joined the "3am can't sleep" club!! I've never had issues sleeping before but this week I've been lying awake tossing and turning unable to get back to sleep in the early hours! So tiring....
Me too @AstroKate. I’m laid here thinking of all the things I need to do tomorrow. It’s not helping
I'm doing that awful thing of working out how many hours I would have had if I go back to sleep riiiiightttf....now. Ok, what if I went back to sleep at 4.30....ok, how about 5.00.
Then I end up thinking there's no point as I've got to get up soon.
I feel like the walking dead this week!!
Never known anything like it. Dead tired in the day but wide awake in the early hours
Thanks for starting the new thread @mynameisMrG
First time Mum here, EDD 07/01/20 😊
First time mom here! Currently 7+6. I have my first 8 week scan with my OB on Friday. A little concerned today because I had a few minutes of cramping, nothing intense,mostly just uncomfortable. TMI coming... Used the restroom and had some blood, not bright red but red, by the second wipe it was gone. By the next bathroom trip the blood was brown and barely there. Weird thing is today would've been the day I would have started my period had I not been pregnant. Still feel sleepy and nauseous and extremely hungry. Just wondering if anyone else experienced this type of spotting ?
Just checking in. Thanks for the new thread MrsG!
EDD 3rd Jan, first baby.
Early scan and booking appointment all done and on 3 week countdown to 12 week scan now. Can't wait!
Anyone else's boobs throb and sting when they first get out of bed in the morning?
@Lyssa91 I have been spotting (mostly brown with occasional pink) for a while now and had a heavy bright red bleed with clots. Had mild cramps for the last few weeks too. Had a scan at EPU and baby was fine, heartbeat was seen too. Completely understand your worry though! I'm still a bit worried now as my spotting seems to go, but then comes back a day or two later! Hope yours resolves soon x
Checking in, 5+4 today, EDD 26th January. Woke up too early and couldn't get back to sleep, sounds like this could go on for a while.
