Hi all,
obvs still very early days. I’m currently 4+4 and just trying to enjoy it really. Just wondering if anyone wanted to join me to share early symptoms, how you’re managing to hide symptoms, how you’ll reveal your pregnancy to loved ones etc. and all the other bits and bobs on this journey 🥰

Hiya. Ive just had this today at 14dpo. After a CP in Sept I'm really anxious and taken about 200 tests however I'm seeing good line progression finally. I paid for a private hcg blood test today as was convinced I'd lost baby again, then got the CB2-3 after, typical!! S x

@Soopyjoopy so sorry to hear about your cp 😔
completely understand your anxiety! Your tests look great 👍🏻 I’m feeling a bit anxious but it’s pushed me the other way in terms of testing. I literally tested once and haven’t tested since. I had a strong line, I’ve had no AF and I’ve got pregnancy symptoms so I’m hoping for the best 🙈 can’t bring myself to test again x

Thats so sensible, after my cp I said I wouldn't go mad again as it made no difference.. mines quite a complicated story, I was told many years ago we couldnt have babies, we foster, around 35 children, adopted 1 our beautiful boy, then I got pregnant with our next son who is just turned 1!! Now fingers crossed pregnant again!!!

Hi all. I’m 5 weeks today but 19dpo as ovulated a couple days later this cycle because of CP last cycle. I also had a CP in October so this is my third pregnancy in 3 months. I’m really hoping this one sticks but worried something will happen again.

I’ve now got tonsillitis too and can’t get an appointment until tomorrow afternoon so my throat is in a lot of pain but luckily I haven’t got a fever so hoping it won’t cause any harm to the pregnancy. I don’t think it’s an issue with no fever. At least if I can get something to take tomorrow I’ll be better for Xmas day. I had tonsillitis when I was pregnant with my daughter too so I’m guessing it’s because of the lowered immune system as I get tonsillitis when I’m run down.

@Soopyjoopy your 14dpo test looks similar to mine this time round and I got the start of a dye stealer on 18dpo. I started bleeding with a negative test 18dpo the previous 2 times so it made me feel a little better. I’m going to try so hard to not test again now though. I know that I’m pregnant today so take it day by day.

@allgoodthings84 sorry to hear about your CPs and tonsillitis! I hope you start feeling better soon!
Your tests look good. It makes me want to do another but I’m really going to try and hold off. Like you said, today I’m pregnant. Just trying not to stress really but it’s so hard.

Hi all, I’m 4 weeks today. I found out a few days ago with a really strong positive so I’m trying to not let the thought of twins terrify me 😅

allgoodthings84 · 22/12/2022 19:18

@LuckyStar511 thank you and congratulations to you too. I’ve only done the 2 tests. The one on 14dpo to confirm I was pregnant. I knew I was as didn’t spot for the few days before AF like I usually do and AF always comes 13dpo unless I’m pregnant. I was going to do the second test on 16dpo as both other times on 16dpo the tests were pretty much negative but I decided to hang on until 18dpo as that was the day I lost the other 2. I was very shocked to see it darker!

I know it’s still very early days though and I don’t feel pregnant but I think the tonsillitis isn’t helping. I can’t wait to get to the docs tomorrow. I didn’t have symptoms with my daughter until nearly 7 weeks.

How are you feeling?

Congrats @Nik84! do twins run in the family?

@allgoodthings84 with my first, the first symptom from missing AF was sore boobs but I don’t have that at all this time. I think maybe it’s because I’m still breastfeeding though.
Ive been very tired and have had some nausea too. Trying not to overthink that though because with my first, my sickness was horrendous so I don’t want to get in my own head about it. Apart from that though, all good 😊

@LuckyStar511 No they don’t, but I’m 38 and know the chances are higher. You’d think the body would want to hold onto eggs as you get older instead of flinging double out 😅

Would they be your first?

No, I have 8 and 10 year old girls. There wasn’t a plan for a third until last year when I fell pregnant unexpectedly and unfortunately lost it. After that we decided that we really did want another baby.

@LuckyStar511 i do have slightly sore boobs but not massively. They just tend to get bigger when I’m pregnant 😂. I hope you don’t get much sickness. My only symptom with my daughter (apart from the boobs) was constant nausea from nearly 7 weeks until around 20 weeks and horrific heartburn. I always had a bottle of Gaviscon to hand

@Nik84 I’m sorry for your loss. how old are you if you don’t mind me asking? I’ve just turned 38 and I’m a bit worried about twins but I’ll be happy if this pregnancy keeps going no matter what. My partner would be delighted 😂. My mum has twin brothers so if the saying that it skips a generation it could happen 🤦‍♀️. I haven’t got loads of symptoms though and I’ve heard that if it’s twins tends to be more symptoms?


Hi @Needtobuildabridge. so exciting this is your first baby. It will be my second the first one is now 7.

@allgoodthings84 I turned 38 in September 😊 I haven’t had any symptoms yet except for cramping like af is coming and the start of sore boobs. So that’s a good sign! But I did get a really strong positive 5 days before I was due on… 😵‍💫 Like you though, I’d rather it was twins than no baby at all 🤞🏻How old is your first?

@Nik84 ooo same age as me. I was feeling maybe I’m too old before but decided to have another as my partner doesn’t have a child. My daughter is 7 so not been in early pregnancy for 8 years. I didn’t find out with her until nearly 7 weeks as we wasn’t ttc. It was when the symptoms hit that I realised I hadn’t had a period so took a test

Hi everyone I’m 4+4 😊

Came as a lovely surprise as we weren’t really TTC this month! Had a missed miscarriage at 12 weeks in August and a chemical in October so really hoping everything goes ok this time 🤞

No obvious symptoms so far apart from feeling bloated, but that could also be because I can’t keep my hands out of the Celebrations tub 😂

@allgoodthings84 ah so we’re in a really similar situation, my youngest is 8 so it feels like a lifetime ago since I had a baby! I also thought I was too old but realised how much I really want this and there are lots of women who have babies later in life these days ☺️
@ClaBro1 congratulations! I also had a miscarriage at 10 weeks, it was a hard time, I’m sorry you had to go through that. Fingers crossed it goes well for us this time.
@Soopyjoopy 👶👶 I don’t think I’d cope 🤣

Hi everyone! Sorry to hear about your CPs 😢 I suffered a miscarriage at 6.5 weeks back in august and it really does cause so much anxiety now! @soopyjoopy that's wonderful news, you beat the odds the doctors gave you! This will be our first baby. I am super early, around 3.5 weeks, But got a good positive on easy @ home.
