Hello! smile

Anyone on here a first-timer? I'm 35 and have never been pregnant before. Got my BFP this morning and I'm equally thrilled and terrified because I thought this day would never come. Would love to meet you.

Victoria1981 Sun 06-Mar-16 20:33:10

Thank you, that's so helpful!

BIG congratulations to you my lovely. Got my BFP on Christmas eve after trying for 4 years while struggling with PCOS.
Hope your pregnancy is happy and healthy! You'll love the website, all lovely ladies and give fantastic advice!
Good luck to you!

Thank you, Charlotte! I've just woken up for work and honestly I still can't believe it! Congrats on your little one too! Xxx

Congratulations!! Such an exciting time.
I'm a first time mum with a 7 month old. The lack of sleep is tough but the rest is a lot of fun.
Take care of yourself. I'd really recommend Daisy Birth classes if they do them in your area.

Victoria1981 Mon 07-Mar-16 06:56:35

Thanks so much Angelicjen! I'm so excited I can't stop bouncing around this morning!

RochelleGoyle Mon 07-Mar-16 15:47:37

Congratulations! I am also 35 and pregnant with my first. smile

Bex1992 Mon 07-Mar-16 15:50:17

Does anyone have achy pain on their bump? Right at top its really hard and painful for last 2 days think its bump growing though. Any thoughts? Xx

Leirope Mon 07-Mar-16 19:12:09

Congratulations Victoria! I'm 26 weeks with my first and I still keep having to pinch myself that it's really happening! Hope you have an easy pregnancy and your morning sickness isn't too bad xx

Victoria1981 Tue 08-Mar-16 08:30:13

Lovely to meet you all ladies! Bex, afraid I'm not at that stage yet as I'm only 5 weeks, but it might be worth asking on one of the other threads or starting a new one. Unless any of you other ladies can help?

Victoria1981 Tue 08-Mar-16 08:33:49

I can't really stop worrying myself. We had IVF and there were two embryos put in there, so I really want to get to my early scan on 29th March so I can see what's going on in there! In the meantime my symptoms so far have been...

Bit of heartburn
Twinges and cramps
Interesting stuff leaking (but prob from the progesterone pessaries!)
Bit of a coldy feeling
HUNGER. All. The. Time.
Bit of dizziness
Very sore boobs which seem to have swelled up!

Not sure how much of this is hangover from all the drugs I've been on though!

How about you ladies?

Congratulations Victoria! I'm 38 and never been pregnant before either, currently 7+5. Early days, but I feel really positive and optimistic. Hope all goes well for you.

Victoria1981 Wed 09-Mar-16 09:51:58

That's great Becky! All good luck to you and your little one.

CityMole Wed 09-Mar-16 10:14:22

Congratulations! I am also a first (and probably last!) timer and I am 40 years old.

I'm afraid I had no symptoms other than some boob swelling and constipation, so I can't offer any useful comparisons. However I do completely understand and sympathise with the WAITING. It is hell. My advice is to plan as much as you can to fill your days/ weeks that is non-baby related and try to take your mind off it- otherwise you can drive yourself quite mad!

Victoria1981 Wed 09-Mar-16 10:30:17

That, CityMole, is exactly what I'm doing. Mad, I tell you!

Esjaye Wed 09-Mar-16 11:33:50

Congratulations thanks
I'm 35 and also 11.5 weeks pregnant. Get yourself on pregnacare or similar as soon as, it really helped me with tiredness that will no doubt come your way soon!!
Got my 12 weeks scan in the morning

Oysterbabe Wed 09-Mar-16 17:20:56

I was you last May, 35 and pregnant for the first time. Now I have the most beautiful little 10 week old, literally cannot stop staring at her. Good luck, you've got some wonderful times ahead.

Victoria1981 Wed 09-Mar-16 18:59:39

Thanks OysterBabe and Niseko! Already on the preg vitamins, feeling shattered but praying with all my heart that this little one will stick! Hoping that I'll be holding my own baby in November!

sophied1983 Thu 10-Mar-16 20:12:37

First for me too.

How is everyone getting on?

I am 14+3 due 5th Sept.

Thom80 Thu 10-Mar-16 20:52:01

Victoria - I am also 35, first time pregnancy after IVF. I have felt very anxious because can't quite believe it. Your symptoms sound very similar to mine. I am now 20 weeks today. Good luck
