Very excited xxx

When did everyone find out x

lastditchattempt20 Sun 26-Jul-20 18:16:39

Hi! Thanks for setting up!
I found out Fri PM 9DPO with v faint IC, then had recognisable implantation symptoms that evening. Then did another Sat morning and a FRER later that day which confirmed. Currently 11DPO and anxiously waiting to get past AF (due 30th ish). Estimated ovulation date gives me EDD of April 7th! Early days, but excited.

kwastell Sun 26-Jul-20 18:19:08

So excited too!

I got a very very faint line at 9dpo. Only really believed it at 11 dpo.

This my progression that I'm far too excited about. 😂

That's great! Love seeing line progression! My IC are sensitive to 10mu so waited for those before spending £ on FRER

lastditchattempt20 Sun 26-Jul-20 18:23:27

The FRER was after a three hr hold in the afternoon. Going to do another one in a few days.

Matilda19 Sun 26-Jul-20 18:31:21

Yeah I did one at 12 ish and another at 3 ish both super happy with lines I'm 2 days late so chuffed to bits. Just the long wait to scans been looking online and they do some 6 week scans at private clinics going speak with fiance see what he thinks or whether just to wait xx


Matilda19 Sun 26-Jul-20 18:31:47

Going do one with first urine tomorrow x

Matilda19 Sun 26-Jul-20 18:32:58

That's mine c

Matilda19 Sun 26-Jul-20 18:33:36

This is one

lastditchattempt20 Sun 26-Jul-20 18:38:22

Yeah, we're trying to decide with scams. Definitely want an early one but away at. Week 7 so do we get one just before we go or wait 😬 until come back? Saw HB on 6w scan with DD so tempted for this one.

lastditchattempt20 Sun 26-Jul-20 18:47:55

*scans 😂

kwastell Sun 26-Jul-20 19:06:58

I think we're going to go for week 8 for a scan. With previous missed miscarriages I've been scanned at 6 and 7 weeks, and they've not been sure so have had to wait. Don't think I could cope if the scan was questionable and had to wait again. So going to try and hold out.

Although just looked at dates and we're away on week 8 (thanks for the tip to check that @lastditchattempt20!)

Thanks @kwastell 😘. Rushed post but I found out a week or so ago. Nice line progression but the digital hasn’t gone to 3+ (why do I do this to myself!) Different apps say I’m either 5 w 3d or 5 w 0. So not sure how worried to be . I’ve booked a private scan at 8 weeks. I also don’t feel pregnant anymore.

Keeping everything crossed. I’m blessed with a seven month old and going on our first UK flight tomorrow ....argh...

lastditchattempt20 Sun 26-Jul-20 19:23:45

Everything crossed for you @Homassy -levels are so variable in these few weeks. The CB can only go off the average for most women at 3 (5) weeks, you might be just below that?

kwastell Sun 26-Jul-20 19:41:31

I think it's probably fine for those dates @Matilda19. Like @lastditchattempt20 said the levels can vary a lot. I would worry too, but rational me says you don't need to.

Sorry! Meant to tag @Homassy. With only 4 of us in this group so far you'd think I'd manage to get it right!

lastditchattempt20 Sun 26-Jul-20 21:09:04

Can I share my line from this evening?- FMU vs just a 3 hr hold. ☺️ HCG definitely higher! I definitely didn't drink that much fluid last night!

kwastell Sun 26-Jul-20 21:16:43

No questioning the line there @lastditchattempt20 🎉

I've found in the past my tests later at night were stronger than my FMU. Have been trying to only let myself test in the morning now though because I get a bit obsessive.

kwastell Sun 26-Jul-20 21:23:45

@lastditchattempt20 hope that didn't come across like I was saying you're being obsessive. Didn't mean that at all. Meant I have been in the past so have now had to attempt to control myself.

OP’s posts: |
lastditchattempt20 Sun 26-Jul-20 21:30:54

Lol it's ok. I'll take obsessive anyway. 😄 I find it reassuring. Especially as am not 4w yet, still feels like it's all in my head if that makes sense? Just glad I'm using cheapies and not FRER like last month 🙈££

kwastell Sun 26-Jul-20 21:36:28

@lastditchattempt20 yes, definitely. I'm the same.

kwastell Sun 26-Jul-20 21:37:39

How are everyone's symptoms?

I've been feeling really sick, but not actually been sick yet.

Not got sore boobs at all yet though.

Sore/bigger boobs, hot flushes, tired!! Napping in afternoon- same as with DD. Not sure how I'll manage at work this week! 😴 Felt a little bit nauseous this morning but nothing too bad.
