Hi, I'm new to the pregnancy board. I've just found out that I am pregnant with my 2nd (4 weeks today) and the NHS calculator says all being well I will be due around 12th May.

I couldn't see any threads for May yet - anyone just found out and want to join me?

DS has just turned 7 so I'm a bit rusty on this whole pregnancy thing!

Hi @LilRemz - fab due date!
I'm mostly tired and hungry. Have been unable to sleep 5 nights in a row, but only found out yesterday so I'm just exhausted and I can't stop eating! Only savoury food though which is very uncharacteristic of me.
I have the usual sore boobs and slight nausea but not too bad yet. Have had lots of stretching type pains over the last week.
How about you?

LilRemz Thu 31-Aug-17 16:51:16

Aww bless ya...
Yhh I've had sore boobs since ovulation VERY bloated...cant seem to sleep properly always tossing and turning can't get comfortable at headaches too and slight nausea started yesterday...and a little tired just aways yawning lool...but sometimes I feel fine which scares me at time you know...

Hi All. I am 4 weeks today, first baby. Happened fast so still in shock. For symptoms, I am feeling nausea from time to time and so much bloating. Congratulations everyone.

AlexsMum89 Thu 31-Aug-17 16:59:52

I know how you feel! I've had a couple of moments where I've just felt normal and then I'm scared I've got DH's hopes up for no reason. It's a funny time I think when you've got nothing to show for it other than feeling a bit iffy and 2 lines on a stick!

4+3 today according to lmp. Due date 7th may! So far just sore boobs. Waiting for sickness to kick in. Was around 7 weeks first time round I started getting sick.

I recently found out I was pregnant during camping holiday with my family lol.
Unsure about when I conceived as I haven't had a period since coming off the pill (end of july) but I'm presuming I'll be sue around May time.
I'm pregnant with child number 4. Youngest is 3 in December
Middle is 4
Eldest is 5.

I'm a bit nervous with this one as I've had 4 miscarriages and ive started spotting so eeekkk I'm on edge. Xxx

AlexsMum89 Thu 31-Aug-17 19:38:08

Welcome everyone!
Hope it's all ok @chocolate it's quite common to have spotting so FX xxx
DH wants to tell his mum tonight which I'm fine with as she would support me if something went wrong, we are on our way now!

LilRemz Thu 31-Aug-17 20:33:12

Congrats to everyone...i hope we all have a smooth pregnancy

@chocolate hoping it's implantation bleed and nothing to worry xx

LilRemz Thu 31-Aug-17 20:34:09

That was meant to be a smiley face lol x

PossibiliTea Thu 31-Aug-17 20:38:03

I found out the other day, I'm terrified though! Had a missed miscarriage in March so don't want to get my hopes up but can't help it! According to the calculations due 7th May!

alibee26 Thu 31-Aug-17 21:13:22

Hi everyone! I found on Monday that I'm just over four weeks pregnant and the baby is due 03 May 2018. Have got slight nausea, shortness of breath, fatigue and I'm tossing and turning at night!

I told the doctor who basically told me to go home and the midwife will be in touch and will advise me on everything.

Sorry to hear of your miscarriage PossibiliTea. I hope things go well for you this time smile

PossibiliTea Thu 31-Aug-17 22:42:31

Thank you alibee26 and congratulations! I had the exact same response when I rang the doctors!

RedPanda25 Thu 31-Aug-17 23:38:09

Hi everyone and congratulations! There's a may thread over in antenatal clubs with quite a few of us on if you want to come and join us?

Such exciting (and nerve wrecking) news! I had a miscarriage in June and I'm constantly worried. Think my due date is around the 8th may.

Sophiathesecond19 Fri 01-Sep-17 06:13:50

Hi all, I am also 4 weeks with my 2nd. I have one DD who is 14 months. Due around 12th May! Very excited to give DD a sibling. Congratulations to you all

Flumplet Fri 01-Sep-17 08:27:48

Hi all I am due in may at some point - I don't know the exact date though as i have really long cycles the first day of my last period was 25th July but I know I didn't ovulate until around 17th July but I got a faint second line on Tuesday and a bfp yesterday. Congratulations to everyone!

I'm excited beyond words as this is our very much wanted second baby - brother or sister to our ds who has just turned 6 so a much bigger age gap than we hoped for, but I'm also super nervous because I'm much much heavier than I hoped I would be and I think this pregnancy is going to be a struggle. If anyone else has any experience of being very overweight whilst pregnant I'd appreciate a bit of a hand hold!

Also, hoping I don't get HG again this time around! 🤢

AlexsMum89 Fri 01-Sep-17 17:56:13

@flumplet my DS has just turned 7 so a big age gap over here too. I'm hopeful it will be a good thing! X

PossibiliTea Fri 01-Sep-17 18:19:48

Ooo Flump I ovulated on the 17th too! Congratulations and wishing you a smooth HG free pregnancy smile

Hi everyone

I'm new here; found out a week ago I'm pregnant with number 3. Due around 8th May.

Congratulations to you all. X

ShonaghMacD85 Fri 01-Sep-17 18:55:17

Just found out today I'm pregnant. According to the first day of my last period I'm 4 weeks 5 days. This is my second pregnancy but will be my first baby. Bit uncomfortable at the moment down there but guess it's just everything stretching and making room.

PGTips83 Fri 01-Sep-17 18:57:15

Hi guys! I found out two weeks ago (on holiday!) that I'm pregnant, expecting our first around May 2nd!

I have my first check up next week and I'm worried I'll somehow have gotten this all wrong and I'm not pregnant at all! Anyone else have this fear? I have had sore boobs for a few weeks and light cramping everyday, which I'm taking as a sign something is going on in there. Anyone else had the pinchy-pulling cramps?

Congrats everyone!

Poppy012 Sat 02-Sep-17 11:57:03
