silver! welcome to the newbies, especially those with previous losses.

I started getting the the sore(ish) boobs on Saturday - does anyone else think it feels exactly like being a bit overdue for a breast feed lol? maybe just me..And they are heavier.

I've been a bit paranoid about not really having symptoms  yet this time around so I'm actually reassured by having SOMETHING to tell I'm pg...

how's everyone else going?

I haven't really had soreish boobs this time round. But my gosh the nausea and the bloating has been horrible. I've actually been feeling pretty miserable about the whole thing, I'm just so sick of feeling sick, and it's so much harder with a toddler to care for

Joining in here so I can share my journey/whinges around! I feel revolting and am trying to take it as a positive that I feel revolting but it's not working rolleyes.gif . Due early/mid July which seems a crazy length of time away!

I haven't got sore boobs at all this time and I'm freaking out about it. Sore boobs is normally one of my first symptoms. I do have the other 2 main symptoms though, shocking hunger pains and frequent urination.

My husband thinks that my boobs are just confused because I pumped milk for a month after Hayden was born. I hope he's right!

I'm just going with the flow at this point and trying not to obsess over every little thing...it's not really working though!

Thanks for the warm welcome! It’s so strange being on the tail-end of this group, some of you are four whole weeks ahead of me – I’m thinking that will be an advantage though, as you’ll already have the answers to all the questions I’m sure I’ll ask!

Congrats to all the other newbies, especially those of you have had difficult journeys getting here.

JBaby – I hear you on the sore boobs! Poor DH keeps hugging me and I have to tell him to be gentle because they are so tender.

jdmama – I’m not feeling particularly nauseous but I’ve just lost my appetite. I’m hoping it stays that way, I’d love to avoid full-blown morning sickness!

economist99 – Wow! That sounds like a symptom I wouldn’t mind having.

My main symptom has just been exhaustion, it’s still early days though. After four days in a row of peeing on a stick (just to make sure I’m still pregnant!) I’m finally starting to feel like this is real. I haven’t got a doctor’s appointment until next Monday so I’m trying to relax until then. And by relax, I mean I’m constantly researching what I need to do/buy and making lots of lists!

Hi girls,

I haven't been posting much in the chat thread, more on the FB Group but thought I better come & say my farewells.

I miscarried over the weekend, and a scan a couple of hours ago confirms it, so I'm out.

Wishing you all happy & healthy pregnancies!

I just had my 2nd gestational age scan today and saw bubba's heartbeat for the first time!  He or she (baby #1) is due to arrive on 5th July.  I had no idea I was pregnant (even though we were TTC) and took a home test at what turned out to be 5 weeks.

I've had very sore/firm breasts, hunger pains, frequent urination, but luckily no nausea...yet!  I very, very rarely get nauseous - only once in the last 17 years (tough stomach!) so I am hoping I might be able to skip that step!

We haven't made any announcements to family/friends yet, but we're telling DH's parents on Wednesday, and my parents on Monday (they live interstate and will be here in Sydney then) - 1st grandchild for all!

mummafreedles so sorry to hear about your loss xxx

economist99 oh that would be a great symptom to have. take that over MS anyday lol

elpie lol i have to say i like being at the start of july. i think i would go nuts seeing everyones babies being born before mine lol.

afm not a lot going on here, just really exhausted. got to sleep in til 9:30 sat and sun and had a nap on the lounge yesterday afternoon when DD2 napped.

need to get more bloods done today - i am guessing it will be about 5-6 vials. not looking forward to that. i dont even think all the things are neccessary but hey, whatever.

got santa photos done on the weekend and the christmas tree up. it is awesome cos DD1 is old enough now that we can threaten her to be good or santa wont bring her any presents. hahaha. it was also funny too cos she wants a bike for christmas and after we got the santa photo she said to me "i want my bike now mummy" bahahahaha. 5 weeks is a long time to wait for a 3 year old

Hey Ladies

I am going to bite the bullet and join in now!

This is my second FET transfer but sadly the first was a chemical preg so am still a bit nervous for this one but HPT with VERY strong second line and digital saying 2-3 with bloods showing levels to be 5 times higher than the chemical one makes me think this might stick!!

Second blood test on Friday will give me more comfort with the doubling etc.

So, should be due 30th July, just scraped in here!!

no symptoms really. Sore boobs but being an F cup they get sore at that time of the month, and im on progesterone supplements so am used to them being sore, dont notice it too much now!

Am feeling quite tired in the evenings though. DH says Im always tired so preg is no excuse!!

still in cuckoo land really! biggrin.gif
