I can't remember anymore. Had a little scan through for pictures and found us!

Littlebump2018 · 08/05/2020 10:32

What are our due dates?

Mine is 17th Jan :).

Any symptoms?

I've had tingling boobs and they hurt and I've sort of gone off cheese and I'm being a complete hormonal cow (I feel bad for my partner as last time I was pregnant I even hated myself lol) and I've got stomach cramps :)


Em1991 · 08/05/2020 10:37

Ooh I'll join too thanks @BabyG123

Im feeling quite crampy, hoping it's nothing to worry about! Was feeling pretty nauseous last night after eating but seem to be ok today so far, might be an evening thing πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Just managed to book a private early pregnancy scan for 2 weeks time when I'll be 6 weeks. It's my first pregnancy so finding it quite nerve wracking actually! Just hoping and praying everything is ok in there

How's everyone else feeling? Have you told or are you planning to tell any family or friends?


BabyG123 · 08/05/2020 10:58

Welcome all. Sorry @Em1991 I missed you!

Symptoms wise the morning nausea until I eat.

Tired and I'm the same. Grumpy AF @Littlebump2018. Poor DH has gone outside to get on with jobs lol.

@Em1991 I was terrible with DS1. Literally had a scan every month. Hoping to get a grip this time round but know I won't. DH has already joked about it.
I won't tell anyone until I've had a scan though.

Looked into private already but it's the same as NHS that you'd have to go alone so thinking I must try and hold out and hopefully in 8 weeks time partners can come πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Curve ball- just called up to do the booking in appointment and she took the first day of my last period. I said I have long cycles and she said it doesn't matter due date 5th January πŸ€ͺ

Hey! Thank you for inviting me ☺️. I think I will be due around 6/01.

I had nausea for a couple of days but that has completely gone so freaking out a little bit. Still have sore boobs, mild cramping so hoping all is ok 🀞. Got booking in 25/05 over the phone, she said after she will come and post the green notes.
Still doesn’t feel real, trying to stay positive. Xxx


myhappystreak · 08/05/2020 12:30

Aw yay thanks for the tag! So happy to see all of us get our BFPS and that we can stay together now on this thread.

I've joined the January birth club on babycentre, let me know if anyone is on there too.

Also took my 2nd FRER test (they come in a pack of two so didnt want to waste it lol) and got a good line progression.

And I've got 2 clearblue digitals arriving today 😊

@Adrianoska there's a grad bus for you and your twins to join πŸ˜‰


BabyG123 · 08/05/2020 17:57

@Juno231 I'll defo just wait for the first scan to have a date. It happened with DS1 but he was 2 weeks early anyway!

OP posts:

myhappystreak · 08/05/2020 18:32

13dpo and did my first digital. Feels so real now!

Got a private scan booked for 3 weeks time when I'll be 7 weeks.

@myhappystreak exciting! I have these tests coming with my tesco shop tomorrow xx

OP posts:

Littlebump2018 · 08/05/2020 19:32

@myhappystreak how exciting! I ordered some on amazon and they arrive tomorrow. I am now 13/14dpo so I wondering how many weeks pregnant it will tell me! πŸ™Š


NicNac85 · 08/05/2020 21:58


I’m panicking a bit, I just did a digital and it’s saying 2-3 weeks. If my LMP was 1/04 then that would make me 5 weeks +3 days so I would of expected 3+ on the test. Could something be wrong? πŸ˜•


BabyDust13 · 08/05/2020 22:01

@NicNac85 I'm not an expert but I think on the instructions it says you have to add 2 weeks so if it's saying 2-3 it's actually 4-5. Hope this helps you can probably google the instructions if you don't have them anymore 😊


BabyG123 · 08/05/2020 22:07

@NicNac85 I did the same thing with ds1! It isn't very clear!!! You add 2 weeks like above says. And breathe!

OP posts:

Littlebump2018 · 08/05/2020 22:28

@NicNac85 your 3 days over 5 weeks but you could have implanted +/- a day or two and you've also tested in the evening. I bet that if you tested in the morning or in a days time you'd see the 3+


NicNac85 · 09/05/2020 09:39

Thank you so much for your replies, I have relaxed a little! I have one more digital test in the drawer, I’ve missed the chance this morning but will take it tomorrow (or as long as I can hold out!). This is definitely more worrisome than first time round. Hope everyone is doing ok. Xx


BabyG123 · 09/05/2020 11:13

First time as a passenger in the car this morning and feeling so bloody sick now 😩

OP posts:

Em1991 · 09/05/2020 11:42

The digital definitely felt more real for me, just seeing the word pregnant! 😬 It still feels so strange and every time I talk to my mum or sister on the phone or FaceTime I'm trying so hard not to blurt it out! Thinking if I can wait two weeks then I should have my private early scan done at least. Still got these cramps, keep expecting to go to the loo and see my period has arrived then I remember I'm pregnant!


myhappystreak · 09/05/2020 12:17

@Em1991 I'm the same with the cramps!

So hard not to blurt it out, my partner wants to tell my mum today, but I'm still undecided


inthestars90 · 09/05/2020 12:51

Okay if I join?

Got my BFP yesterday / today in words! It's still sinking in -feels super weird!

Due date is 18th jan 2021 Grin

I also know I will struggle not to share though it's easier with not seeing family right now. X


NicNac85 · 09/05/2020 13:52

Congratulations @inthestars90 Flowers Its taking a while for it to sink in with meSmile
