Well... total surprise for us here. I just found out I was pregnant last week, GP reckoned about 16 weeks and booked me straight in for a scan...
Had the scan today and they reckon I'm more like 21/22 weeks (although I gather it's much more difficult to date a pregnancy by this stage)!!!! The gender is written down in an envelope as boyfriend didn't feel like he could cope with any more news just yet.
Who else is due around the same time? I'm really panicked about how much we need to organise and any tips would be most welcome.
Congrats!! Im due October 5th. I am 24 weeks now and only just started planning anything so don't worry, still plenty of time. Only thing I will say is take your time so it is not overwhelming and ask your doctor about taking Iron supplements if they haven't said anything about it already.
I actually wish I could have found out like you and missed the whole first three months, would have been much less stressy. Although I can understand how shocking this must have been, hope your BF gets over the shock soon
Congratulations! I'm 20 weeks tomorrow and due October 27th NoodieRoodie is due on OH's birthday
So far we've painted the smallest bedroom because I had a week off work and money off vouchers for Homebase so bought the paint and that's about it. Oh, and I have some nappies because there was a voucher in my Bounty pack. Take it nice and slow and do a little bit at a time. If it makes you feel better, I know people who knew from four weeks and still didn't have a baby carrier when it came to bringing their DD home!
Welcome to the October Club and congrats!! I am 21+3 and due on the 17th I have a crib, a few white body suits and lots of bump cream ;)
BTW there is quite a large thread for those due in Oct on the Antenatal Clubs, personally, I can't keep up with it but you might find it useful: http://www.mumsnet.com/Talk/antenatal_clubs/1196706-October-2011-Baby-Bus-part-3
Ooh I too wish I could have been oblivious to the last 21 weeks that'd be great! Although I appreciate it does pose other probs. I'm due 13th oct but having elcs a week or so before. I have done nothing apart from buy 1 sleepsuit put house on the Market and get a new car. Dc3 for us that's come as a wee surprise. (a v wanted one tho) I agree with others, just take it slowly enjoy your good news and then get things. If needs be it could be done on tinternetin an afternoon!
