Thanks Wispa. I needed that x

Seconded, ready, you and baby will be fine. As Wispa said, the flow of nutrients through the placenta doesn't start until 5-6 weeks. And although drinking heavily in pregnancy is undoubtedly harmful, less crosses the placenta than you think as your liver metabolises a lot of it before it even gets to the placenta. Not that I'm advocating drinking during pregnancy, but FASD usually occurs when the mother drinks heavily repeatedly during pregnancy, not one weekend of drinking at 4 weeks! I read up on all this during my first pregnancy as I liked to be informed about why the guidelines around food, drink, medication exist.

P.S. I had a few drinks at the weekend too, if that makes you feel any better!

At the moment its still an embryo isn't it so you'll be fine smile

Wow so many BFPs!!! Congratulations everyone smile

I really hope I'll be joining you in 5 days time!

Ready congrats and I agree with everything said, it is way to early for any harm to have been done.

Hi can I join? smile I am TTC #1. On month three, I think I'm in my fertile week. I've spent the last two months googling every single symptom sign movement twinge to try and convince myself I'm preg, and this month I decided to just go with it and decided it will happen when it's meant to happen. I haven't read previous thread, but hello to all here x

TheresaMarie55 Wed 25-May-16 14:11:32

Done another test....another faint line. I think I can say it....IM PREGNANT smile . Keeping it a secret until fathers day, will be the best present ever! X

marmitetoast1 Wed 25-May-16 15:07:03

Ooh congrats to all the new BFPs! Lots of positive news! smile

happybus28 Wed 25-May-16 15:18:11

Congrats on all the BFP's!!! i am impatiently waiting for ovulation!!

SunnyDays1987 Wed 25-May-16 15:19:22

I wouldn't last a day not telling my DH Theresa!! Fathers Day is weeks off isn't it?! I admire your secret keeping ability! Congratulations smile

wispaxmas Wed 25-May-16 15:21:19

Yay Theresa!!

lex, welcome! Symptom spotting is so pointless. I've discovered that convincing yourself you're not pregnant is what actually does the trick shock

I might step back a bit from the conception threads for a bit, but will check back in on you lot!

TheresaMarie55 Wed 25-May-16 15:33:33

I've got the idea in my head and so wanna do it but I am thinking maybe the wait it to long. I'll be 7 weeks by then (going off LMP) and its almost four weeks from nownid have to wait. Think I might have to give it a miss hmm . We do however go on holiday on the 6th of June and it would be nice to tell him then. That's less than two weeks away so not to big a wait!

neonrainbow Wed 25-May-16 15:44:21

I couldn't keep it a secret, my dh will be more excited than me!!

TheresaMarie55 Wed 25-May-16 16:00:27

I'll end up telling him as soon as he gets home grin . will keep it a secret from everyone else for a while though x

AlexiaB Wed 25-May-16 16:06:36

I feel really emotional today, idk why. Trying to distract myself but everything leads back to ttc!! Cd30

Congratulations ready - to all of you who are already moms or have just had a BFP - are you getting rather loud gurgly Bowles? My midwife said not to worry but I'm extra cautious after a mc last December.

TheresaMarie55 Wed 25-May-16 16:42:47

Nj. Not entirely the same but one of the things that led me to think I was pregnant was an increase in gas blush . Had it each time. That's likely what the gurgling is but yours may be trapped? X

NJ81 Wed 25-May-16 17:20:35

Thanks theresa - definitely a bit of that!

SunnyDays1987 Wed 25-May-16 18:13:12

I was horrendously bloated last time NJ even before I got my BFP so it could well just be all the extra gas. Lovely stuff!!

neonrainbow Wed 25-May-16 18:19:46

So... im confused. By my calcs im due af today. Bfn this morning. No period but (TMI) have had light pink discharge when going to the toilet since lunchtime with some light cramps on my lunch break. Could this be an implantation bleed? Im about 12dpo but not sure when i ovulated. Im asking because This is not normal for me when im due on normally it just starts and usually first thing in morning. Ill probably post this and my body will decide whether it is af or not and make me look a fool. blush

Readytosettle Wed 25-May-16 18:39:40

So it's either implantation neon in which case you're testing too early for a BFP or its AF...unfortunately only time will tell I guess. If you're 12dpo then you must have a very short cycle normally- is that right?

neonrainbow Wed 25-May-16 19:28:21

Thanks ready.. i usually have a 26 to 28 day cycle.

wispaxmas Wed 25-May-16 20:01:04

FX, neon!

NJ81 Wed 25-May-16 20:52:55

neon I had a really odd AF like you're describing the month before my BFP. Maybe it's the body getting ready, or I like to think!
Thanks sunny tmi but there is definitely a lot of a gas for a normally non gassy person at all! confused
