Got a bfp a couple of days ago. Due October 3! This will be my second, how about you?

AnnieApple123 · 21/01/2024 11:00

<tentatively waving hello and keeping everything tightly crossed>

All being well, I am also due October 3rd.

tryingforbaba · 21/01/2024 11:37

Ahhhh amazing!! Congrats both of you.

This will be my 2nd baba.

Symptoms kicking in today. Tired, nauseous and craving plain crackers haha

How you guys feeling?

So far so good (although super early days and didn't feel sick last time until about week 6).

I've been at my in laws this weekend and my SIL is 31 weeks pregnant so there has been SO MUCH pregnancy/baby chat. It's been so difficult not to let anything slip!

Hello! I got my BFP yesterday, estimated due date is October 2nd. I'm 36 and this will be my first, so excitement and nerves are running wildly out of control here haha.

How is everyone feeling? I haven't had much in the way of symptoms yet (apart from missing my period!) Some cramps in my lower back that felt like mild, short-lived period pain the ither day, and twinges in my right abdomen ever since ovulation (I often get this anyway) which has now become a near constant dull ache/sometimes tugging feeling...

Keeping everything crossed and sending lots of luck to you all ❤️

Welcome everyone!

I’m really noticing a heightened sense of smell. Have done for a couple of days now in fact. I confess I’m usually terrible about remembering to change towels and yesterday it struck me that they all needed it. I also suddenly started to notice the smell a plant my aunt gave me for Xmas. I’m not at all a plant person and am usually barely aware of them.

pwblwc · 21/01/2024 13:32

@bringmorewashing I'm 36 in a fortnight!

sunnyfleur · 21/01/2024 16:42

Hello! Due October 5th. First baby. BFP literally 5 minutes ago. DH starts a new job tomorrow so I don’t want to tell him until tomorrow evening… plus I’d like to buy a clearblue weeks indicator to make it a bit more official. I’m shaking! Congratulations everyone, know we are so early but this is so exciting xxx

bringmorewashing · 21/01/2024 17:59

@pwblwc Ah how amazing to get a BFP as an early birthday present! I’ll be 37 by the time October rolls around… which seems like a very, very long time away!

pwblwc · 21/01/2024 18:02

Congratulations @sunnyfleur! How exciting! Hope your DH's first day goes well tomorrow.

Congrats! I was shaking so much too yesterday when I got mine! Similar situation here - DH is working away until Tuesday so I’m planning to tell him then. I’ve ordered more tests on Amazon which will hopefully be here tomorrow... Eek! Good luck!

tryingforbaba · 21/01/2024 18:18

Glad to know I wasn't the only one shaking haha 🤣

Is anyone going to do hypnobirthing?

Also... a reminder to all get your pregnancy vitamins complex in 👊🏼👊🏼

Mine arrived from Amazon today! I've gone for the standard pregnacare ones, which I used last time I was pregnant.

I expect I'll have another c-section as had one with my son because of low lying placenta.

I dunno. I might buy that book everyone goes on about. Practical ways to make your birth better, is it?

On the other hand, I am considering a c section. Worse recovery but you know what you’re getting. Not sure I have full trust the NHS atm our local maternity ward ratings are not great at all. Going to see how I feel in a few months xx

pwblwc · 22/01/2024 10:39

Just been sent an appointment for my booking in appointment - 1/3! Can't believe how quick they were, much faster than when I had my son.

tryingforbaba · 22/01/2024 18:00

I've got my first appt on Tuesday. I live abroad so have private medical so lucky that my first appt is soon too 🥰🥰

Midwife’s where I live won’t even see you until you’re 12 weeks and if you’re lucky you’ll get 1 scan at around 16 weeks!
daughter wants a scan for reassurance as recently had miscarriage, she’s been told no they don’t do them 😡😡

AnnieApple123 · 22/01/2024 20:51

Where do you live @tryingforbaba ? I am pregnant from a fertility clinic in the US and am in touch with them daily at the moment.

Is anyone else finding this early bit very nerve-wracking?

I am joining too ! I am 3+5 , due date 2nd of October 🐵 perfect thread for all of us !!

Glad it’s not just me! I’m finding just watching and waiting for line progression very scary.

sunnyfleur · 22/01/2024 22:24

I’m so excited but nervous too. It’s my first baby so researching everything and finding it a minefield. Is it anyone else’s first? X

Nic2908 · 23/01/2024 22:23

Hi guys, can I join please?? I got my bfp a couple of days ago. EDD 5th October. I have a DS who is 3 and unfortunately suffered a miscarriage at 16 weeks in March last year. So I guess this is very tentative and I’m just going to try and take each day at a time.
