Name-changing regular, husband not yet notified...

After a large number of years trying, I appear to be up the duff. This is going to take some getting used to.

effingnora Wed 17-Dec-08 11:31:01

Am just a bit wary of jinxing- don't want anybody knowing who I am yet, and the number might identify me!

Can I have all the gory bding details over on the other thread (you know which one I mean)grin

effingnora Wed 17-Dec-08 14:17:37

D'you think it'd be ok if I just buried my head in the sand and pretended nothing was happening for the next 8 weeks? By my reckoning I am about 6.5 weeks now.

NotanOtter Wed 17-Dec-08 22:13:42

effing! Have you told dh yet??? can you reveal!

effingnora Thu 18-Dec-08 09:57:41

lalalala, can't hear you!

Have been analysing overnight why I haven't yet told him, and think I am probably trying to protect him. He suffered quite badly about the one we lost, you see.

NotanOtter Thu 18-Dec-08 11:15:47

how sad - but happy now

(i take baby aspirin early pg to prevent miscarriage!)

hope you are feeling chilled!

peacelily Thu 18-Dec-08 11:25:40

Fabulous! Congratulations smile

effingnora Fri 19-Dec-08 16:37:33

Not feeling at all chilled, alas. Feeling rather sick though. Also I am spending about 95% of my waking hours double-guessing symptoms and drawing up worst case scenarios, the worst of which is the pregnancy stays, and I discover at 20 weeks that there is something seriously wrong with it. Why oh why oh why did I decide to do this again?? I must be mad
