I thought I'd make this for anyone receiving their BFPs in the next few weeks!

Currently exactly 4 weeks. Still super early, especially after an early MC last time, but fingers crossed for a sticky bean this time!

Yes! I just want to get to further than last time right now. That's my immediate goal. I hope you get your sticky bean too!

Hi! I'm 4 weeks too! Still can't quite believe it! Anyone having symptoms ? I'm have a really sensitive sense of smell which is making me feel sick, occasional cramps.

Hi!
So glad I've found this thread! I was 4 weeks yesterday!
Feeling terrified of having a miscarriage and also terrified of the whole pregnancy as I had a traumatic birth previously.
Trying to keep positive!

Congratulations on your BFPs!

@Nattalot Congratulations!

@Pollie89 We're the same date. I'm 4+1 today, also with a previous MC. It's so hard to stay positive isn't it?

Fingers cross that this all goes well for everyone on this thread 🥰

@Itsokaymama
I'm feeling ok. Get the odd bout of feeling sick and feel exhausted all the time! Also get the odd cramp which makes me worry like mad but other than that I'm ok!
How are you?

I'm due around the 1st October! This is the second time being pregnant, unfortunately I also suffered an early miscarriage the first time around. But I managed to get pregnant again quite quickly! I'm so nervous about losing this baby bean

I think we all need some positive mindsets to get us through the next couple of weeks!
Let's just focus on seeing that healthy baby on the 12 week scan and go from there...

We can do this girls! 😘

@Pollie89 Yes, that's such a good mindset! I think we'll end up doing an early scan, don't think I'll make it to March. 😂

I'm definitely considering getting an early scan! I'm just aiming to get to 7 weeks before I start planning everything. I have a lot more symptoms this time around though so I'm definitely feeling more positive that it'll all be okay!

It's a decent time to wait! Cause at least at you will be able to see something if not hear the heartbeat 😊

Hello everyone! I'm joining the October tribe (hoping for a sticky bean). I'm only 3+2 (9dpo), with DS it was the same with my first positive at 9dpo!

It's a nerve wracking time but I found the Mumsnet girls such a Godsend the first time, so hoping we can support each other in the same way!

Fingers crossed for everyone, love and hugs especially to those who've suffered previous miscarriages ❤️.

I got a private scan last time but don't know if we will bother this time as it only added fuel to the fire for me anyway 😅 it was such a thrill to see DS jumping around at the 12w one!

Ahhh I’m so glad I found this group - I had one for my oldest and we chatted until the babies were born and weaning!
I think I’m due 1st October. We already have a two year old, we couldn’t decide if we wanted another now or to wait for a year so had one ‘fuck it, let’s see what happens’ night and now, here we are! Surprised it happened so quickly but really excited!
Symptoms wise - I just am quite crampy, sore boobs. I’m exhausted tonight but I think that’s pretty standard working full time and having a toddler!
