I've been reading posts for a while (mainly when I feel rough to help me know others understand!) and have found them encouraging and so thought it was about time I said hello!

I'm 10+5 now and seem to have had quite typical symptoms:
Sore boobs, though better now
Faint period like pain
Constant need to eat, especially satsumas, soup and toast!
Evening sickness weeks 6-10 and now all day! Not actually sick just constantly queasy and below par, exercise helps when I can face it..
2-3 loo trips per night
Despite all the above the slight worry that the 12 week scan will show nothing!

Anyone relate to these?
I find it strange not talking to my friends about it all and am convinced that most people must forget how rough the first few months are cos I don't remember any of my friends being ill really, probably once they announce they forget!

I'm 38 and this is my first. Can't really believe it really! I have PCOS but it's been well managed by diet and exercise and a Subseptate uterus so will be under consultant care.

Anyway, hello everybody!!

Hi Silver and congratulations!

Check out the ante-natal groups over in 'becoming a parent'. There will be an August one for you full of people in the same boat. The september one i'm in is lovely and good to chat to real people who are going through the same thing.

Good luck smile

Hi silver! I second village's suggestion - come over to Antenatal Clubs (under Becoming a Parent topic) and jump on the August 2016 thread. We're a nice bunch and we will definitely understand & give sympathy if needed!
