April 2020 babies!!!(29 Posts)
Hiya everyone. Anyone due in April 2020? Be fun to share experiences and stories! Im 13+4 today.
@Laurenbxx I'm due April 1st! Hoping it's not an april fool's baby and it comes after that date! I'm 14 weeks today with my rainbow baby.
Haha, he/she probably wont come on your due date so you might get lucky lol. So sorry to hear about your previous loss, i had 2 losses too, and my first rainbow baby is turning 8 year old in november! My due date is 5th of april so not long after you! 😬😬xx
I hope so cause I will never live it down lol! Also nearly everyone in my husbands side of the family and my brother are all born in March so I'm hoping for an April baby.
Oh I'm sorry about your losses. It's so devastating but I'm just so excited about my little one and just keeping my fingers crossed nothing bad happens. It will be the first baby in both mine and my husbands side of the family in 20 years so it's a big deal!
I wonder if our babies will end up arriving on the same day!
I'm due in April too, there is another thread on here for April 2020 babies and we have a Facebook group so feel free to pop into that group and we're all friendly
Hi All, congrats on your pregnancies!
I'm due 28th April with our rainbow baby and only 10+3 currently
Congratulations @Laurenbxx - I'm 14+2 and due on April 1st..hoping he/she comes before or after!!! Lol 😊
Congrats everyone! Such a exciting time! Has everyones symptoms started to subside? Does anyone have there 20 week scan date? Xx
Hi everyone. Can I join?! I'm 10+3 today, due 30th April (atm). Have my first scan on 16th October. This will be my first baby, so everyday is a brand new experience for me.
I'm still experience morning sickness, but no vomiting, thank goodness! Pretty exhausted all the time.
I'm feeling pretty calm about the whole thing just now. I'm a little nervous as I'm 39, but looking for to first scan and results to move forward.
Hopefully this post/group will act as a good sounding board etc. As it's been really hard not having a"buddy" to talk things through with who's going through the same thing as me... does that make sense?
Congratulations everyone. There is another April group a bit further down if you would like to join. There are quite a few of us x
@Laurenbxx I have my 20 week scan booked for mid November. Cant wait to see my little bub on the screen again. Always so reassuring.
@Laurenbxx I have my 20 week scan mid November..can't wait to see little bubba again. My symptoms have subsided a fair bit so fingers crossed it stays that way! How about yours? X
My scans 19th of november too 😬 cant wait to find out gender! And @Penpont1985 congratulations. Hopefully your symptoms will calm down over the next few weeks. I felt so ill from about 8-11 week it was dreadful! But now at 14+1 im starting to feel human again and nausea as completely gone. @mumma2b2020 my symptoms have subsided too, its such a relief. Xx
Also have people started buying yet? Xx
Our 20 week scan is 18th nov. Can’t wait. We bought a little outright at weekend but trying to hang on a little longer.
My husband and family have bought a couple bits but I'm trying to hold off as long as possible. Once I get the all clear from the 20 week scan and can get out and about I may start getting some stuff.
I've been suffering severe hyperemesis since 5 weeks pregnant so been home off work since mid August and still in and out of hospital nearly every other day. I'm now on second round of home visits twice a day from the nurse for iv medication to keep me out of hospital and hoping all the sickness calms down because I cannot take much more of this. I just want to feel human again and start to enjoy my pregnancy. 👶🏼
@Laurenbxx our 20 week scan is 18th no so we will wait until after then to start buying stuff - we're all quite lucky as we have xmas sales so should hopefully be able to pick up some bargains! X
Hey there all, I am due 1st April too. Got my 20 week scan on 13th november. Were so excited to find out. It's my second child and my partners first. Xx
Oh @abbs1 that sounds awful! Hope you feel better soon! I had normal sickness and that was bad enough!! All our scans are round the same time!😬 i have no clue what to buy for this baby as my first was born in november so was a winter baby! Xx
Congratulations on your pregnancies!! So exciting
I am 15+4 today! My due date is 2nd April. Super excited!
My husband and I already bought a pram, car seat, breast pump and baby carrier loool. I think I'm going to slow down with buying other things though otherwise there will be nothing left for gifts hahah
Wish i was that prepared lol!! Only have one babygrow and that was a gift. Just booked a private gender scan! Cant wait 5 weeks to find out lol!! 😬😬😬xxxx
I just want to go buy the pram the cot and everything but will be moving before the baby comes so trying to hold off as I'm only nearly 16 weeks but I think I may give in and start buying stuff. I just want to know if it's a boy or girl so badly! A month seems so long away still till we find out and then another 2 weeks till the gender reveal party with family.
My husband and all our family are just so excited! April seems so far away till baby is due!
Don't tempt me!! I was thinking about getting a private gender scan but I am forcing myself to be patient lol. My husband isn't on board with me on that so I think I will have to wait lol!
@abbs1 I am also planning a gender reveal dinner with my family! We are thinking of getting the sonographer to write the gender on a paper and put it in an envelope then giving that to our Baker to make cup cakes for us with the pink or blue inside lol! Soooo excited!!!
@Sarabara1 my husband wants to know now and said he wants to ask the sonographer but we are gonna get it written down and then my husbands aunt is making a cake and we are throwing a small party for family. I cannot wait! I just want to buy baby clothes! I wish pregnancy wasnt so long! This pregnancy has wrecked me health wise with severe hyperemesis so I just want it to be done and to hold my little bub.
