Verrry early days of course but just had a big fucking positive this morning and I'm so excited. I'll be due between the 4th to the 7th of April by my reckoning.

Anyone else just received their positive?

Yes me! I can relate whole heartedly to your excitement, almost fainted when I saw that second line! Congratulations! Due date is approx 2nd-4th but suppose we will find out at dating scan! ๐Ÿ˜โค


MeantToBeReading · 27/07/2022 21:24

We had our BFP this week! Due approximately 6th April 2023. Congratulations to you both. โค


Fingerscrossed22 · 29/07/2022 06:39

Last night we got a BFP!
BUT I'm unsure if I am 4 or 5 weeks as my cycle changed from 28 days to 35 , last month!
I will be due either 30th March or 6th April!
I feel excited but worried- I usually suffer with HG from 6weeks to 16weeks, Im also considered High risk due to v.prem 1st child too.
But, I am excited!


CinderellaFant · 31/07/2022 13:48

Just got my BFP this morning! Due on 6th April. We had a mmc in January so I'm a bit scared to get too excited


Qwerty2003 · 01/08/2022 10:08

Congratulations everyone! I am also due in April (4th). Found out very early. Has anyone got symptoms yet?


Babyfever93 · 01/08/2022 12:28

Weโ€™ve just got our BFP yesterday!! Looks like due date 11th April going off Flo appโ€ฆ second baby here with an expected age gap of 25 months ๐Ÿ˜ณ go from being so excited and happy to be doing this again to absolute panic at the thought of how crazy life and our house will be next year haha.

hope everyone is feeling okay xxx


Kryst24 · 01/08/2022 15:59

Congratulations everyone! I had my positive test on 28th July then again on 29th July just to check haha, this is my first time being pregnant so I am feeling anxious but hoping for the best and excited for what is to come. I am due approx. 4th April.


Kryst24 · 01/08/2022 16:01

I am also due 4th April, with my first pregnancy. I have had really sore breasts for over a week now and over the last few days have had nausea, heartburn and some lower back ache.


MuddlingThrough1724 · 01/08/2022 16:46

A very little and quiet hello and peek above the parapet to say hello! Got a bfp this morning, EDD 11th April by my calculations.

Trying not to get excited or ahead of myself as we spent 5 and a half years trying for a sibling for my first, and after lots of disappointments and losses, we literally filled in the ivf clinic paperwork last week, so that's interesting timing ๐Ÿ˜‚

Hoping for a smooth, drama free and sticky little one for the next few weeks and months, and then I might believe it.


CinderellaFant · 01/08/2022 18:00

No symptoms here! I wish I did, would make it feel more real.


Longbin · 01/08/2022 22:43

I'm due 6th April. Feels like I found out ages ago as time is really dragging. The only symptoms that I have is a headache that is on and off and I'm struggling to eat


Bubbles1995 · 02/08/2022 16:02

Hi! Can I join. Got my positive last Monday so due around 2nd April but NHS calculator showing 8th. Extremely nervous! How's everyone doing x


Qwerty2003 · 02/08/2022 18:41

I feel the same @Bubbles1995! Congratulations. Do you have any symptoms?

I've had a sore back since the start and on/off cramping. And definitely off my food - only seem to want very plain things. Apart from that feel quite normal


Bubbles1995 · 02/08/2022 18:44

@Qwerty2003 congratulations! I feel gassy this week and lower back pain like yourself. Boobs are massive as well! Think a lot of my aches is from trapped wind and literally cannot stop sleeping!

How about everyone else? Is anyone else struggling not to retest? I've rang the doctors but they've referred me straight to the midwife so I won't be seen till 10/12 weeks. No blood test no nothing!


Qwerty2003 · 02/08/2022 18:46

@Bubbles1995 has the midwife rung you yet? I got a call today and I'm booked in for next Friday which will be 6+3 for me. Seemed very early to me!


Bubbles1995 · 02/08/2022 18:47

@Qwerty2003 no one has phoned had to do a self referal online as the lines weren't taking calls for registrations. Thought that was odd. Surely I wouldn't have to wait till 10 weeks. Basically another 5 weeks away! ๐Ÿ˜‘


uptheantrimcoast · 03/08/2022 11:02

Can I join? Got my BFP on Friday and should be due 8th April!

@Babyfever93 also our second baby and age gap will be about 24/25 months too!


Bubbles1995 · 03/08/2022 11:27

@uptheantrimcoast we could be due date buddies. I've got 2 different days NHS is saying one thing and my apps are saying something else ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ


Kryst24 · 03/08/2022 12:40

@Bubbles1995 I had to do a self referral online as well which I did on Sunday. I haven't heard anything yet but it said on there that I would get an email confirmation within 72hrs and they would give me an appointment within 3 weeks depending on how far along. I am currently 5+1 so will wait and see I guess, feeling anxious and like time has slowed down. Two of my friends are pregnant, one is 11 weeks and one 20 weeks, I can't wait to be able to share my news too, it's feeling difficult.


Bubbles1995 · 03/08/2022 12:55

@Kryst24 oh right! I've had a text from it saying a midwife will be in touch at around 10/12 weeks. I'm from up North so not sure if it's different or resource is low๐Ÿ˜•


Kryst24 · 03/08/2022 14:10

Ah yes, I am in the south so may be different. I will let you know when I hear from them. Congratulations though!๐Ÿ˜Š


CinderellaFant · 03/08/2022 17:18

@uptheantrimcoast I'm assuming from your username we are from the same place ๐Ÿ˜€


uptheantrimcoast · 03/08/2022 18:59

@Bubbles1995 its confusing isn't it!

@CinderellaFant Unfortunately I'm not ๐Ÿ˜”I'm from the SW but I love the place!


Babyfever93 · 04/08/2022 09:07

Coffee definitely tasting very funny this morning ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ˆโ€ฆ I didnโ€™t realise how much I missed being pregnant. Know itโ€™s going to be even more tiring this time round with a toddler to run after but once out of the first trimester I canโ€™t wait to enjoy a little bump again! @uptheantrimcoast were you trying long? Think a switch just came on after our little girls first birthday for me, wanted our family to grow ๐Ÿ’—

@Bubbles1995 Iโ€™ve done a self referral online for our nhs trust and up in north west โ€ฆ not heard anything but more relaxed atm than I was with my first at this point. Contemplating an early scan though so we can more confidently tell close family august bank hols as they live far away and happen to be visiting :) is this your first?


Matildahoney · 04/08/2022 09:14

Ooh can I join please?! Got my BFP Saturday, this will be my first, if I count from last period I'm due April 1st. How do you all not shout out from the rooftops? So hard keeping it quiet.
