Anyone else due in late October / early November? Seems like a long time to go...

Anyone have any tips?โค

Congratulations. I'm 5 weeks, but it's my second.

If you pop over to the antenatal clubs, there is already an October thread, can't see a November one yet, but someone will probably set one up soon as the bfps start rolling in!

Me too! Currently 4+3 and due on Halloween with my first

Jaronior Fri 24-Feb-17 16:19:41

I've just taken this today...... so I think so!! I'm sure there are two lines??. It would make me due on Nov 5th. I've had 2 early m/c this year so I'm cautious!!

Hello, I'm also due at the end of October and agree it seems ages away. I'm currently going between utter excitement and fear!

I have just booked my early scan on March 14th. We had IVF in January after ttc for 8 years. We had 2 eggs put back so nervous to find out if it will be 1 baby or 2!

Congratulations smile just found out in about 5 weeks! Due in October but not had first scan or anything yet! Can't stop googling haha x

MrsG30 Sat 25-Feb-17 23:37:59

MrsB I'm due 2nd Nov!

No tips sorry! (I am a child restraint expert though, so can advise on that ๐Ÿ˜‚ that's the limit though!)

Are you experiencing any signs yet? I've had mild cramps (different to period cramps), some very mild waves of nausea, achy boobs and insanely sensitive nipples. Also really liking coke atm, which I hate - but I'm not sure if it's an actual craving or all in my head!

MrsB2017 Sat 25-Feb-17 23:52:08

Ahhh there are a few of us ๐Ÿ˜Š

I've had mild cramping and slight back ache. This is also my first โค. I saw a doc today as I'm overweight and wanted to check if I needed to do anything because of it. I just need to continue with general light exercise.

It's really exciting and I too keep googling everything. I'm in utter shock as we fell the first time we tried ๐Ÿ™ˆ I was expecting to take a few months at least

We haven't told anyone yet - planning on telling parents at 8 week mark. X

MrsB2017 Sat 25-Feb-17 23:53:25

@jaronior - I see a second faint line too ๐Ÿ˜Š

Jaronior Sun 26-Feb-17 12:08:48

Update- darker this morning, definite line!

MrsB2017 Sun 26-Feb-17 13:24:42

@jaronior ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป yeay. Congratulations. I did another this morning to be sure ๐Ÿ˜‚ it's the third one in a week ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Congrats all! We had 5 tests before me and my husband actually believed that I was pregnant smile I think we got loads to read on Mumsnet confused

I started writing notes daily on how I feel, how things feel inside and try to do it at least couple of times a week and would love to share this somewhere in the future. Trying to write some notes on how we pick our baby products and Mumsnet has been helping a lot with the reviews.

FluttershyStare Sun 26-Feb-17 15:20:38

Hi I'm nearly 5 weeks too!

I've had period like cramps and super sensitive nipples too

There's so many options for baby things, I'm sensing much research and plenty of lists ahead haha

Congratulations everyone smile

MrsB2017 Sun 26-Feb-17 16:31:08

We're trying not to get too excited until we get to the first scan. My husband is trying to keep calm about it all and working hard at keeping me calm too. We fell on the first night we tried so can't help but think it's happening to easily?!

Although saying that - I do think we're having a boy. I just have a feeling. Anyone else think they know?x

MrsG30 Sun 26-Feb-17 17:03:54

My OH is convinced we're having a girl first, but I have no feeling either way - I can see us with both ๐Ÿ˜Š

We told our closest friends today, which was so lovely ๐Ÿ˜Š sharing it with someone close to us has made us believe it is real!

inkybunny Sun 26-Feb-17 18:09:23

Hello! I seem to be due around 6th November. So pleased but it doesn't seem real at all yet!

KoolKoala07 Mon 27-Feb-17 22:59:43

Hello. I'm 5 weeks pregnant due end of October although yet to have any appointments or scans. I keep going between excitement and being scared. Most of the time it doesn't feel real. Had terrible back ache initially that's improved, period like pains, sore boobs and a mild sicky feeling. Also very hormonal, my poor husband doesn't know how to cope with me at the moment grin

MrsB2017 Mon 27-Feb-17 23:13:05

Congrats everyone. It's defo an emotional rollercoaster x

leannejade Tue 28-Feb-17 13:50:21

I'm 6 weeks, due 20th October.
I went to my first midwife appointment yesterday which was pretty exciting but I suffered with quite bad cramps on and off for about 10 days which has now changed to lower back ache. It's not constant, probably 10 minutes a few times a day but I don't know if it's normal.

I've also had no other symptoms besides sore boobs and being super bloated. No makes me worried with the cramps as well that things might not be ok sad

MrsB2017 Tue 28-Feb-17 15:46:31

Hi @leannejade. I've had cramps and my doc said as long as it's not super painful it's nothing to worry about and most likely your womb stretching etc. I've also go white blood cells in my wee so likely a urune infection so may be contributing towards my cramps x

Sammie12 Tue 28-Feb-17 16:37:33

Just found out I am pregnant should be around the 4 week mark! I have a heightened sense of smell and taste and OMG the burping followed by sick in the mouth ๐Ÿ˜ท yet still quite excited but question for past 12 hours I had a lower burning pain not unlike period pains I tested again this morning and had a BFP so wondering is this normal?

leannejade Tue 28-Feb-17 16:38:00

@MrsB2017 they can feel quite painful when they are happening, making me feel sick but they last like 10 minutes and then I feel fine again. I just worry it means something isn't right as I've not really heard anyone else comment on this (unless they just forget). It's been ongoing for 2 weeks so I may try and bear it for another week and if I'm still worried call my doctor.

MrsB2017 Tue 28-Feb-17 18:05:33

@leannejade I'm sure you'll be fine hun โค @sammie12 hope you start to feel better soon

Have you both joined the group in the antenatal clubs section for November babies x

MrsB12345 Tue 28-Feb-17 22:50:28
