Hi all. So I'm due my first in May of next year. I only found out I was pregnant on Saturday. My husband is great but I have no friends at this stage they either have grown up kids or arent planning to any time soon
I have two sisters. One with grown up kids who she doesn't see and one who's getting married soon so is in her own little bubble.

I would just like someone to talk about all of this as I'm really anxious about the next 9 months.

Thanks for reading smile

Hello I'm due around 20th may or so I'm told I'm due my 12 week scan Monday coming so will find out the date then if it doesn't change on my 20 week scan 😂 this is my 3rd pregnancy and I told my close family and friends due to the fact I really suffered with bad sickness and was really poorly with it and needed support, you will tell them in your own time,also you could say your not drinking due to being at work early the next day etc 😂

I’m 6 +3. I have a daughter, she’s about to turn 10! So I am in full panic mode. I think I’m more scared this time around. Would be happy to share this journey with you all. Feels like I’m doing this for the first time as it’s been so long! X

Laura9x Tue 15-Oct-19 16:10:02

I am roughly 7/8 weeks! I have my first appointment on the 30th and then first scan on the 15th.

Has anyone told anyone yet? this is my first and i have no idea what to do. I also have a family wedding coming up and not sure how to play it (obv wont be drinking, but dont know how to explain why im not drinking!) Or has anyone had an early scan?

@Helensss Thank you. That makes me feel better! I did read that cramping was normal and my doctor said she wasn't worried.

@facevalue, You are right. The doctor kept saying "everything looks great and this is what we would expect to see right now, and when we scan at 8 weeks we expect to see the embryo clearly" And she said the ultrasound she was using was poor quality. I have been really happy and positive until this evening, and I think that's partly because my DP is away with work until next week so I am sat at home alone with my thoughts.

I am hoping the bloodwork is a reassuring today so I can relax a bit. I have also emailed my doctor and let her know about my worries, and so hopefully she'll send something back that is reassuring.

I can't believe that this time last week I didn't even know I was pregnant and now all I can think about is how much I want this baby.

So yesterday I woke up without feeling sick and this morning my boobs are no longer sore either. I’m really worried something’s going wrong 😢

facevalue Thu 03-Oct-19 07:50:55

@rosewater20 they would have told you if they suspect a bad outcome. you simply can't be sure this early. honestly i know i would be a nervous wreck too in your shoes. can you distract yourself doing something else after you get your reassuring blood result? it will be a week or 2 b4 they scan again x be kind to your mind and body x

Helensss Thu 03-Oct-19 07:49:24

@rosewater20 hi 👋 congratulations! If it helps my friend had bad cramping on and off all the way through to her scan at 12 weeks. She panicked as they felt worse than period cramps, she had her scan on Monday and all is perfect so it can be totally normal I think xx

Helensss Thu 03-Oct-19 07:47:44

@Shelbustotherescue good luck xx

Shelbustotherescue Thu 03-Oct-19 07:41:36

@facevalue thank you, I'll let you know as soon as I know x

rosewater20 Thu 03-Oct-19 07:36:28

@facevalue thank you. The results should be back today. I am really nervous about why when I had the ultrasound they weren't sure if the little dots they saw in the sac were the yolk and embryo. Googling has made me more nervous because I keep reading stories about people clearly seeing their embryo and hearing a heartbeat at six weeks.

The waiting and unknown are so hard.

facevalue Thu 03-Oct-19 07:23:22

@Shelbustotherescue 😘 goodluck x hang in there

facevalue Thu 03-Oct-19 07:21:38

@rosewater20 welcome to the group. congratulations. hope your repeat test is reassuring x keep us posted

I’m pro early scans, whatever helps us ladies get through this time to be honest! Following the bleeds I just needed to know that baby was in the right place and ok. Totally aware risk of mc is still there but risk drops to 2% if you see a strong heartbeat at 8+ weeks, I think that is a reassuring statistic. For me turning up at 12 week scan to find out baby stopped growing at 6 weeks for example would be worse - if something is wrong I personally would want to know sooner.

I have my dating scan a week tomorrow, it’s going to be too early so I’ll be interested to see what happens x
