Darn so close to bronze... I'll read up on what I missed and be back...

I'll just put some comments up in themes as I'm sorry I'm terrible with names at the moment...

food - last time I was what I would call practically sensible about it all. I was travelling interstate for work for about half my pregnancy so I always ate out. I had cold meats for lunch every day pretty much, but always made sure it was a reasonable looking sandwich place. As much as it killed me though I avoided sushi, soft cheese etc. This time I'm pretty much the same. (I had thought about being a bit more lax about it until there was that big listeria thing just about xmas time from King Island or Jindi or whoever it was).

Whoever mentioned the mussels and prawns - if they're hot they're ok. I know my SIL in the UK said they were told not to eat shellfish, but I ate prawns by the bucketload last time. They are delicious.

I'm still eating like a horse, popping past the local bakery on my way to work to pick up a savoury roll/mini pizza thing to have for morning tea, plus I'm trying to balance things out by eating carrots - they're easy to take to work and they stop me thinking about chocolate.

symptoms - I am so bloated. By the end of each day I look about 4 months pregnant. Yesterday it wasn't helped by the fact I had a big burrito for lunch which was full of beans, needless to say the other elegant pregnancy symptom (farting ohmy.gif ) reared its ugly head all night. No more beans for me.  Otherwise I feel ok.  I stood on the scales this morning and I seem to have put on 1kg already *sigh* it's the food, hopefully with running around after a toddler it won't get out of control like last time.

So yes, my clothes fit but from a work perspective with this giant bloated belly I am wondering how much longer I can keep all this up. And I'm only 6 weeks.

bloods etc - I never had any HCG levels taken. Both times my GP has just said "ok" when I said I was pregnant and packed me off to the OB. I'm booked in 13th Feb which seems so far away, the days are just dragging along. I think perhaps because I found out maybe a week or so later last time, it feels like I've been p/g for months and months.

AFM - DD is being a bit of a pain at the moment and not sleeping, crying for hours and hours, it's stressing me out. I'm still having really weird dreams, like every night. They're getting stranger by the night, I don't remember this from last time.

I'd better go and have some lunch. Enjoying the peace and quiet though while DD is asleep *bliss*

Hi ladies!

I think it's time I join this group, I got my BFP on 30/12 and am due on 4/9. This will be my 2nd baby as I already have a 17 month old boy!

I got my blood results yesterday and my HCG was 45632 which was taken at 6 weeks 3 day - my Dr looked a little surprised but it is in the normal range. I think it must be one healthy baby or twins!!

I'd love to join the FB group just let me know who to PM.

7 weeks 2 days gone. Im due 3rd September. Cant wait original.gif

Im finding it so hard to keep quiet though!!!

My first Obs appointment is on the 7th Feb, hopefully after that we can start telling everyone. Then stand back and count the "its about times!!" original.gif

This is our first baby. I only went off the pill in August, so was expecting it to take a lot longer!

#10 Hoping2BaMummy

Posted 16 January 2013 - 01:37 PM

Hello. I'd love to join you all. BFP this week and dr thinks I'll be due around 25th Sep. looking forward to sharing the journey with people, especially during the "not telling anyone" stage...

#11 novakf

Hello Ladies, Got myself a BFP this morning! I think I'm around 4 weeks ATM, with baby #2. DS is nearly 20 months old.

Love my first DIG, and hoping that this is another long relationship!

Hi ladies  
I got a very faint BFP this morning.
Hoping I can be added to the FB group?

Just want to say GINGER wonderful wonderful ginger! Has settled my MS, not completely but quite a bit!

Posted 17 January 2013 - 08:12 AM

Hi all,

I may be being paranoid but not sure what to do. I feel like my pregnancy symptoms have gone away and it is freaking me out!!

I had very tender boobs, heightened sense of smell, gas and bloating and a little bit of dizzinesss when I got up in the morning and a few weeks ago I was so tired but now I feel ok. A little tired and my boobs are very slightly sore and I think my sense of smell is up but not sure and that is all. I was peeing more frequently and think I still am but I drink a lot of water anyway. My skin has broken out badly around my jaw this week though.

I am at around 8 weeks and have my first appt with the OB on 4th Feb. My husband said to wait till then but I am wondering whether to go for a dating scan and check.

Posted 17 January 2013 - 09:07 AM

cybersprite- I know the waiting is really hard. As long as you've had no bleeding I'm pretty sure you'll be fine. Most days apart from the hunger I don't feel pregnant at all either. I had no MS or nasty symptoms with DD.

My skin is awful too, I only had a few months of nice skin between weaning DD and falling pregnant again *sigh*

Be kind to yourself, the 4th will come around quickly  bbighug.gif

#18 sleepyerin

Posted 17 January 2013 - 10:11 AM

Cybersprite - you are probably at the point where things can start to settle down a bit, your body may be adjusting to things at bit.

The 4th isn't that far away, but if you are really worried, talk to your GP.

With DD I had pretty obvious symptoms all the time, so anytime they were reduced I completely panicked (instead of enjoying the fact that I wasn't green or battling waves of nausea).

I didn't have a scan until 12 weeks last time (I didn't see a doctor until 10 weeks!).

#19 Jeanie3000

Posted 17 January 2013 - 10:39 AM

Cybersprite - I wrote exactly the same thing on here at your stage - I felt horrid for a week and then one day it went away and I was freaked out.... a few days later it all came back... it seems to be off and on.

Yesterday I felt horrific and today I feel totally normal again, and not pregnant. Take heart in all the encouragement you will find on here that unless you have bleeding then you will most likely be OK.
Good Luck

Hi all, I got a BFP yesterday and it looks like I'm 4 weeks with bub number 2! DS is 21 months tomorrow. Looking like due date fir #2 is 23 September! I have an ob appointment on 25 feb when im 10w- seems like ages away!! Hoping I can join this group and FB page! It's going to be hard to keep this news in for another 8 weeks!!

#21 cybersprite

Posted 17 January 2013 - 10:55 AM

Thanks everyone. My Mum said she was fine through all four of hers so I guess I will try and stay calm and wait till the 4th Feb. Thank you

#22 5taci3

Posted 17 January 2013 - 11:42 PM

Evening or should I say Morning........
My blood test came back positive, so I'm excited to say I have baby #4 baking. I feel normal no sickness but only early days in sure it will come like the others. I'm guess my edd is the 14 September. I'm guess a boy.
Cravings..... Is anyone getting any? Today I drank do much Rassberry soft drink it wasn't funny. Don't normally drink soft drink and rassberry is certainly not a preferance when I do.
Hope everyone is feeling alright.

#23 Tiger-lily

Posted 18 January 2013 - 08:32 AM

No cravings, the exact opposite. I can't stop throwing up this morning, stupid ginger isn't doing its thing today. Worried there won't be enough nutrients for the baby as I havent been eating very well last few days or so.

#24 Gambit la Feralé

Posted 18 January 2013 - 08:45 AM

Hmm no real cravings for me, still just getting a full feeling and on and off cramps in my lower abdomen but otherwise no real changes, except maybe a little more tired.

I saw my GP yesterday and have booked in with Dr Rob Butler at the Mater Bris. My first apptmt will be 7/2 so around 7 weeks+  I've heard really good things about him so I'm chuffed.

It feels wrong to have to book so early but apparently it's what you have to do to secure a spot. :-?

Hello and congratulations to all the newbies!
Well I had my scan this morning and everything was perfect! It was so amazing, I could see its little head and body and heartbeat flickering away. It's measuring perfectly for dates, 7weeks 5 days to the dot. I didn't even need the internal ultrasound, they could see it all abdominally which was amazing. Heartbeat was 158! So fast!
I was so nervous as all my symptoms have pretty much faded away so I was feeling really negative.
Such a great start to the day, hope everyone else is travelling well. Anyone else got a dating/early scan coming up?
