Hi ladies.. iv recently received my BFP after a painful miscarriage in July. 🙏🏻🌈...
anyone else out there received their BFP. We're definitely planning on keeping this on the low down for the the mean time so would love to be able to form a support network x

Hiya lovely! Huge congratulations to you!! I got my Bfp just now.. Like literally 10 mins ago. Hubby is asleep with the little one so I don't want to wake them just yet but I'm so happy. How are you feeling? This is number 3 for me but I'm getting alot of cramps this time, hope it's nothing to worry about x

ashlee89 · 07/11/2020 08:53

Aww congratulations! That's very exciting. This is number one for me.
Don't stress I'm also getting cramps + the odd twinge but hear it's very common.
I'm feeling pretty good. After our loss I'm taking this one day at a time and think I'll hold off from having a scan as long as possible. Definitely nervous about that aspect.

Hi! Wow congratulations to you both, how lovely!

I tested positive yesterday 8dpo after a MMC and ERPC in August. It’s so exciting but also scary and I’m so worried this time that something will go wrong. I guess that’s normal after a MMC.

ashlee89 · 07/11/2020 20:38


Congratulations! How exciting for you.
Absolutely it's nerve wracking. But surprisingly I also feel quite calm. A lily I planted after my miscarriage bloomed the day after I found out and I'm taking it as a sign from the universe 🥰🙏🏻🌈.

Very very early days.. I'm already wondering how I'm going to get away without drinking with all the festive outings I have coming up.

Congratulations and welcome to this group!! Try and stay positive, it must be really hard after a loss but hopefully this time everything will be OK. Try and enjoy the pregnancy as much as you can 😘

MamaBear786 · 07/11/2020 22:16

A bit shocked by very happy. We had been ttc for many months unsuccessfully but last month we agreed to just forget about it until the new year as ttc was getting a bit stressful.. Low and behold the month we didnt try and didn't look at dates I've fallen pregnant lol we are itching to tell our girls (3&4) but think it's very early and if something went wrong it would be so difficult for them. Have you told anyone yet? Are you getting any nausea or anything? X

4Minions2CallMyOwn · 07/11/2020 22:37

@ashlee89 Planting a Lily sounds so nice, I wish we had done something like that! It’s good you feel so calm, I think we’re just trying not to get too excited just incase it doesn’t work out like last time

@MamaBear786 Thanks so much! I think I’ll relax a bit once we hit 12 weeks. That’s brilliant, I’ve always heard that it happens when you relax. Awww bless I can imagine you must be so excited to tell your DD’s. We’ve decided to tell our children once we have our 12 week scan. Just incase. Apart from that I’ve just told one friend and so has DH.

I’ve just been so tired and also had an increased appetite. That’s normal for me and how I knew to test so early. We tested with a ClearBlue digital this morning and got pregnant 1-2 weeks. What symptoms do you have? And what are your due dates? Mine is 23rd July Smile

ashlee89 · 08/11/2020 03:43

@MamaBear786 thank you. Who knows how I'll feel tomorrow but right now all is okay 🥰.

@4Minions2CallMyOwn I used a clear blue digital this morning and got 2-3weeks. I think due date would roughly be 19th of July.
Not to many symptoms for me. Maybe a little more tired than usual but that's it for now 😁.

Hi ladies,
I’ve been waiting to see the July birth club arrive! I’d love to join you please.
I’m due 8th July with our third (we have DS10 and DD7, so quite a gap!). I’m 41 and we had a MMC in April with twins who stopped developing at around 6 weeks and a chemical in July so I’ve been through the mill a bit this year. Because of all this, I’ve got an early scan at the hospital on 18th, when I’ll be 6+6. Keeping everything crossed until then. We will also have NIPT testing at 10 weeks and don’t plan to tell anyone at all until after these results.

Hope you’re all doing ok. I’ve got sore boobs and feel nauseous if I let myself get hungry, which is a good excuse for constant snacking!

EatPrayYoga · 08/11/2020 10:59

Congratulations all

I got a week ago on Friday and I'm 5+4 now

There seem to be at least three threads and two Facebook groups for babies due in July 2021

I am 36 and pregnant with number 2 but baby number 1 (DD) was stillborn last year a full term loss at 40 weeks. We have been trying for over a year since then so we are hoping for everything to go well and a rainbow baby in 2021 🌈

ashlee89 · 08/11/2020 19:24

Welcome @Chickoletta @EatPrayYoga I am so so sorry to hear about your losses. My heart breaks for you and I wish you nothing but the best for this pregnancy.

Thanks @ashlee89 You too 💗

BallerinaN · 09/11/2020 23:46

Hi! Congratulations to you all. I got my BFP on Sunday morning. I just felt pregnant but still shocked to be honest. This will be our third baby. Eldest is 4 next month and youngest is turning 1 this month. Eek. I’m due around 22nd July 😊 x

NoCallerID · 13/11/2020 09:33

Hey, mind if I join?

Due 27th July. 5th pregnancy, hopefully 2nd living child. (LC is 2).
I've had a TFMR earlier this year followed by 3 early losses.

4Minions2CallMyOwn · 13/11/2020 10:52

Congratulations to all the new positives!!!

Following our MMC in August I tested positive a week ago (a week before my period was due) and got 1-2 weeks on a CB digital. My period is due today, just did a CB digital and got 2-3 weeks! So feeling a bit happier and more reassured now, I’m only 4 weeks (due 23rd July) so no symptoms yet apart from inability to sleep Confused

Threecouldbefour · 20/11/2020 15:00


I had a positive result this morning. It's so early - 6 days before I'm due on, so I'm trying not to let myself get carried away. This is no 4 for us - the second of our second 'batch' 🙂. I have all girls 13, 10 and 20 months. I'm quite anxious as I had a bit of a hard pregnancy last time with morning sickness, SPD and migraines. Fingers crossed this one sticks and is more harmonious!


Hayleywoody82 · 28/11/2020 21:57

Hi all can I join.

I got bfp a couple of weeks ago. Big shock.

I've got 3 children age 12,14 and 18. None with my partner now so we wanted one together.
I'm 38 . I've had 4 miscarriages. This us my first pregnancy since my 12 year old daughter.
Due around 20th July.
I've got an early scan a week on Wednesday im keeping my fingers crossed.

Symptoms wise I have sore boobs and nipples and all day nausea xx

How is everyone else doing xx

ashlee89 · 28/11/2020 23:40

Congratulations, that is so very exciting.

My first scan is booked for next Friday when I will be roughly 8 weeks. I am extremely nervous for this after a previous mmc.
I have even considered canceling it because it's giving me so much anxiety 😩.

I have few symptoms mostly just being sore nipples and occasional sore breasts

Hayleywoody82 · 29/11/2020 08:33

@ashlee89 oh exciting. Ill keep my fingers crossed.
Mines a week on Wednesday and ill be about 8+1 🤞🤞🤞

Hayleywoody82 · 29/11/2020 16:52

Is anyone else really suffering with sickness?
I have nausea all day. Imnot actually sick.
Its really getting me down. I can't get on with normal day to day things cause I feel so sick.
Im just about managing to throw something in the oven for kids tea.
I'm so glad I work from home, I couldn't of sat in work like this.
I've looked like a zombie/slob for over a week now.
Partner not very supportive either. Typical man tbh x

Threecouldbefour · 01/12/2020 19:47

I realised my due date is not actually until August 6th! Can't see an August birth club though?!

Can I ask when you started feeling pregnant please? I feel totally normal at 4+6 and I feel a bit worried. I had a mmc before where I felt too normal. But I know it's early for symptoms.

Thanks - hope you're all doing well!

Lorz80 · 07/12/2020 14:34

Hello! I’m due 23 July with my second. We have a 2.5 year old boy. Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself.
