It was nice to meet you all on the 2011 baby thread, you made me feel very welcome. However, I'm realising how little I know about this I'm not even sure which bus I should be on!
I ovulated a couple of days ago and we've been SWI both before and afterwards. So, after advice on the other thread, I think that means AF's due about the 8 January and I can test around then.
I'm trying to remain calm about this, and not fret over the 2WW. But I don't even know what type of symptoms I should be looking for! The only think I have had, which is far too early to be anything I'm sure, is appalling indigestion, low down, and a few cramps today.
daisybell and vegas - exciting times for you both - fingers tightly crossed!
daisy - it's highly unlikely (but not impossible) to get symptoms as early as may be. Sore boobs are a very common symptom but then a lot of women have this as a pre-menstrual sign too, just to confuse us .
When we started ttc, I really didn't have a clue and found the book "What to expect BEFORE you're expecting" an enormous help. There's just so much that I didn't know and this puts it all in lovely plain English. Well, American English anyway!
Trying is certainly fun although OH is now exhausted
Thank you winter for the book tip-off, it certainly sounds like what I need. I realise the indigestion was far too early to be a symptom, and was just a result of eating far too much at Christmas, however I was too embarrassed to admit that
I've been crampy for the last couple of days, with bad indigestion, but feel fine now.
I've now got a really stupid question ... As I'm on the 2WW do I need to stop eating the types of food that you're supposed to avoid in pregnancy? My parents are visiting (at least it stops me wanting to POAS) and I've just eaten brie, blue cheese, pate etc etc. It will be quite easy to stay off the booze but do I need to be careful with food, just in case????
