Sunshinexx95 Wed 01-Jan-20 12:02:18

Apps / NHS calculator say due date will be Sep 4th.

My period is actually due tomorrow but I tested 2 days early with it being NYE and not wanting to end up having a drink if I shouldn't be! Nervously checking every time I go to the toilet now. Both tests yesterday had very strong lines though and my boobs are sore too. Would like to just fast forward a few weeks now and know that everything is ok xx

Hiya, I’m due 16th August (according to my app) and am now 7weeks. Have had a precious mc at 6 weeks so quite nervous now. Booked in a private early viability scan for next week and wishing each day away so I can get to it quickly grin

Hello lovelies. I am 4+2 according to my app.
Due on my period yesterday and have had cramps for the past 2 weeks. I have read that it is normal however it’s still freaking me out a little, first pregnancy nerves! How does everybody else feel? X

xiaomao Wed 01-Jan-20 13:32:22

@Gingerlockssss @Annafs

Congratulations! I'm feeling pretty crap today, got a banging headache and earache! Apparently headaches are quite normal? Boobs are really tender and sore too haha other than that I'm swinging between really excited and worried!!

xiaomao Wed 01-Jan-20 13:34:06

Also, I did the self referral online to the midwife, do I need to go to the doctor's too or is that enough?

Sunshinexx95 Wed 01-Jan-20 13:59:07

@Annafs @Gingerlockssss
Welcome ladies! I hope our pregnancies goes well.
I have no symptoms except from very bad back ache but I already know I have retroverted uterus And I read it is normal to have backache. But I'm still nervous for early misscarriage. I have never been pregnant before. And I am only 3 weeks and 4 days pregnant. My period is due on the 4th but I really hope it will not show up and disappoint me.
Xx grinblushconfused

Just found out I'm 4+2, planned but didn't expect it to happen so quickly so feeling a bit numb and in shock! Doesn't feel real yet and don't want to get my hopes up as it's so so early. Congratulations everyone x

gingin96 Wed 01-Jan-20 14:43:45

Hey ladies happy new year! my period was due today so I decided to take a test when I woke up and very very faint. Do you guys think this is faint positive or evap line?

MimiCaeger Wed 01-Jan-20 14:46:54

Hi all, I don’t want to put a dampener on the thread but I think there’s already one of these going in ante natal clubs.
Congratulations all.

MimiCaeger Wed 01-Jan-20 14:47:44

Also hi Gin, I would suggest testing again, the line is finer than it should be as well as being faint

Sunshinexx95 Wed 01-Jan-20 14:48:37

@Sunshinexx95 I just tried to tag you in the other group, dunno if it worked?!

daniellemc7 Wed 01-Jan-20 15:57:57

Hi ladies! Happy new year, I'm due end of August, first pregnancy, very excited! Sore boobs, tired and a lot of cramping but hear this is all totally normal. Booked an early scan in January just to make sure all is wellsmile congrats on everyone's pregnancies x

MimiCaeger Wed 01-Jan-20 17:14:35

@Sunshinexx95 please don’t apologisesmile I can’t find the group. But I will try now smile xx

Sherlock30 Wed 01-Jan-20 21:25:04

Hey ladies! And happy new year!
Congratulations to all!
Got my BFP on Christmas morning!
Im due approx 31st Aug, pretty nervous after having a miscarriage in October.
At the minute just experiencing light cramping and absolutely shattered, can't tell if that's from pregnancy or just the festive season and all the compulsory socialising fconfused

Sherlock30 Wed 01-Jan-20 21:38:25

@xiaomao hey! I think that should be enough, if you tell GP they tend to just tell you to refer to the midwives anyway smile
Or that's my experience at least

mamaskelz Wed 01-Jan-20 23:08:51

Happy new year everyone 🖤

We have just found out we're expecting our second and due on 05/09/2020 eeeeeek 🙊

I am desperate to reach the 12 week mark and still can't quite believe it's happened, is anyone else planning to have an early reassurance scan or am I just a crazy mum lol

Congrats everyone xx

Sallyjo27 Thu 02-Jan-20 17:21:00

Hi all
Got my BFP this morning! Only 10 dpo so still vey early days but so happy!

Firstbub Thu 02-Jan-20 21:56:25

I think I’m around 7 weeks, and due mid August. First ever pregnancy, which was a complete surprise. I’m desperate for the baby to be viable but have worried every day since I found out three weeks ago! Have booked in for a private scan next Wednesday to check that there’s a bub, and that it has a heartbeat! Time is just going really slowly though!

ConfusedandDisturbed Thu 02-Jan-20 22:21:43

Ah congratulations everyone!

I've just discovered we're expecting baba number 3 and I can't really believe it! We were away just after Christmas and arrived home at 7:30am on new year's eve, and I had suspicions so I held on for the first bathroom trip of the day until I was home with a test to hand. I needed to know if I was safe to drink at the party that night!

Anyway, due late Aug / early Sept, think I'm just 6 or 7 weeks.

Thrilled to bits, but also my mind is constantly buzzing with practicals like how the hell will we all fit in the car, or the house for that matter, and how can we afford anything for the rest of our lives. I'm due a pay rise in April and was really banking on that as hubby is reducing his salary due to a role change, but now I'll be dropping down to maternity pay in the summer...

As for symptoms it's hard to say. I actually went to the doctor last year saying I had pregnancy symptoms (fatigue, fluttering in tummy, weight gain, palpitations) but negative tests and the GP did full tests, even an ultrasound and found nothing, but those symptoms have now continued for nearly a year!! So two days and three positive tests later I don't feel any different and it's all a bit odd. Delighted though!

Morning everyone! Ok if I join?

I got a bfp positive yesterday on CD 28.
I had a MMC back in May 2019 at 5W 3D so I’m very nervous too!!
Haven’t phoned GP yet for an HCG.
Last time it was positive but under 100 so GP warned me it wasn’t high enough and he was right.

Fingers crossed for us all xx

ShiningStarz Sat 04-Jan-20 08:27:01

Bfp straightaway on CD28
