Gold!

Gee you ladies are chatty.  I think I'll only be able to catch up in the evenings as I' can't really be caught browsing a DIG at work just yet original.gif

I keep forgetting I'm pregnant and almost or accidentally eating things I shouldn't.  Like salami and Maccas shakes (they have a new limited edition flavour - what terrible timing!).  Not sure if its because I was so sure I wasn't pg this month, or just not as uptight as I was with my first bub.

Chaton- I did the same, and am suffering atm. Bought a burrito from salsa's and have a belly ache since. I keep for getting i'm preg and cook and eat foods I shouldn't. made satay chicken wings and am too freaked to eat it. this will be #2, first DS I ate soft serve,take out pretty much every night. I'm trying to watch what I eat with #2, which makes me paranoid with everything I consume. not as relaxed. when's your EDD?

What is in a burrito that you shouldn't have?  I would have thought it was ok?

I just recovered from suspected salmonella two days before I got my BFP.  11 people got sick following a BBQ on Australia Day from undercooked chicken.  I was sick for 3.5 days.  Thankfully Dr says that since I got my BFP after the incident, it should be ok.

I'm hoping to be a little more relaxed with "listeria hysteria" this time around, but every time I start to relax there's a high profile outbreak or something.  I actually got listeria illness 2 years ago when I wasn't pregnant from smoked salmon and there was a recall for that brand a couple of days later.  I can't stand getting sick!

My EDD is 11 October.

Wow its so hard to keep up with the threads! LOL

Protart I am so sorry to hear your news. Rest up & take care of yourself & I wish you the best for a sticky one next time.

Mrsradiant- My DH was exactly the same with our last bub as it was our first & he didn't believe the 2 hpt & wouldn't believe I was pregnant until I had it confirmed by blood test at the Dr. So sweet that he sent you flowers.

Morning sickness has just really started kicking in for me. No vomitting but a general starving sick feeling in my tummy. I had the same with DD & second the suggestion to snack very regularly. I found it helped keep it under control a little. Currently have been sitting here eating celery & carrot sticks with dip & it has hit the spot this morning LOL.
Been experiencing bloating & mood swings a lot so far but I think (much to DH's delight) the mood swings are starting to settle a little.

That selmonella poisoning sounds horrible Chaton. You poor thing being so sick for 3 days. Glad the Dr said it shouldn't have affected Bubs as that would have been a worry

Hi all. just introduced myself in the intro thread.

I can't believe I'm in here. My "baby" is 12.5yo & just started high school! I'm 36 now.
I am still getting my head around it all but very (cautiously) excited. I love being pregnant but my physical health is a big question mark. Trying to remember all the do's & don't's of pregnancy lol, My GP has given me the run down but I don't remember anything about soft serve, shakes or poached eggs etc. I know the processed meats, soft cheese, pre prepared salads etc etc are out. I am already on a caffeine, alcohol & high energy free diet due to my health condition so I'm used to that part (as much as anyone can be lol).

Is anyone else starving all the time? I dont remember anything so early on with previous pregnancies. I will be 5 weeks tomorrow. My boobs hurt like heck, especially in the morning & night. cramping makes me worry but I know it's normal too.

Gosh there is a lot to get my head around! it should be like riding a bike I'm sure? Look forward to sharing this journey with you all

burrito worry was the meat- they had it sitting in the fridge marinated, my legs and feet are aching and my chest is sore. Going to book a doctors app today. At the moment I really enjoy cheeese and tomato toasties. The burrito I ate at 5 didn't go down well, felt so nauseous for a good 5 hours.

Hi all,
My bleeding seems to have stopped for now  thank goodness.
Hopefully seen the last of it.
Have a doc appt this Friday for blood tests etc and seeing midwife from my dd1 birth for booking a date scan.
Hate this early stage, goes so slowly!!

Hope you are all taking care of yourselves

Am glad to hear my symptoms are normal... Nausea/starving.  Funny thing was I started trying to diet on approx same day as I conceived and it was not working!

Toasties are awesome! I've been hittin up the BBQ eggplant (roast it whole then scoop out the flesh), mushroom and cheese. Sorry if imade anyone hungry.

Is anyone else paranoid about eating too much? All the articles warn against it. But even after eating I still feel starving.

#11 araluan

Posted 05 February 2013 - 12:25 PM

I have noticed with DS #1 I ate way too much and was always hungry ate at least 5-6 big meals per day. Before I TTC #2, I would eat no more then 2 meals per day, with #2 I eat 3 small meals with light healthy snacks in between, haven't done this on purpose just happens:D

Posted 05 February 2013 - 12:34 PM

Welcome washergal original.gif there is a pinned thread in the pregnancy sub forum that has stuff about the guidelines for what not to eat and what is ok. I think it has changed a bit in the last 12 years.

MAandM, great news your bleeding has stopped!

Chaton, lucky about the timing of your food poisoning, can't have been pleasant though!

I'm not nauseous at all yet, but I am the earliest of the group still I think, 4 weeks in a day or two. Starving but when I make myself a nice big meal I can't get through it all, so I'm hungry but my stomach has shrunk or something   unsure.gif I'm not too worried about eating too much, I managed really well last time and didn't put too much on so hopefully can do it again.

Freaked myself out this morning, thought I may as well use up my last Internet cheapie test and it was still really really faint, barely darker than the first couple I did days ago. So off I went and got some more first response test and it's much darker, almost darker than the control line, than the pervious ones I did. So feeling good that things are still progressing and will get over my POAS obsession soon  happy.gif

Booked my dating scan for 3 weeks time, I'll be 6w + 4 or 5d if I'm right about when I ovulated. Does anyone know if I'll be able to see a heart beat by then?

#13 MrsRadiant

Posted 05 February 2013 - 12:44 PM

bluedragon, apparently you should be able too,
i went to a doc yesterday as my two normals ones i go to are on holidays, hoping she'd refer me for a blood test, but when i told her i had done approx 12 tests and all were positive she said she'd take my word for it, tad disappointed!. But she wants me to have a dating scan, even though i can tell her when i got my last period and when i ovulated?
She recoomended some time next week and that i should be about 6 weeks then and should be able to hear the heart beat!
I am going to the obstertritian on friday so i will do what he wants me to first.

Hi all I just found out that we are expecting our fourth child this October. There was no mistaking that the test was positive ( I had two dark pink lines come up straight away). I have been feeling sick for the last couple of days and have been exhausted for the last week yesterday I slept for about four hours during the day.

Hello everyone!   biggrin.gif

Popping in to join your group - hopefully for the long run!

I'm a mum to three kids already (ages 7, 5 and 3) and just yesterday discovered we brought home more than just souvenirs from our big summer family holiday. An embryo stowed away too!!!!!  ohmy.gif

I'm calling this baby Whoopsie Daisy!

Yesterday I had to break the news to my husband and it was one of the most terrifying, emotional things I've ever had to tell anyone. (We really thought the family was complete and 3 is busy enough!) After I sobbed all my fears and worries out to him (he really is the most patient man, hahaha) he actually came around to the idea far more quickly than I expected.

As he said - "Well, we DO have three very COOL kids, so another one wouldn't be so bad..."

I'm coming to terms with the idea very slowly - shock is giving way to a breathless joy and daring-to-hope - and all the emotions of this BFP are so different to my other four (I have had one miscarriage before) planned pregnancies. I'm already feeling a bit heavy in the tummy...and dreading morning sickness. BLURGH! Other symptoms are: a bit of constipation (but needing to go a lot more), stuffy nose, off my coffee and the old sore boobs.

I have been to the dr this morning and have had bloods just drawn to confirm. I will be having a viability scan next Friday to check for a heartbeat, and to confirm dates since I'm just not quite sure when this baby was conceived!! (Well, actually, I have a pretty darn good idea when the naughty event occurred - wine and all, haha wink.gif -  but it doesn't quite fit with my normal O date. This is one big Whoopsie!)

According to my LMP, my due date is the 11th of October.

I will try my best to keep up with the group, though I'm pretty limited between the school drop offs and pickups and general run-off-my-feet-ness of it all. hee hee.

Chat soon!

xx Sunny

Hi Everyone, Im going to join this group too (EEEEK!!)

I have a DD that is 7 and a DS that is 5 and did a test on the day my DS started school and found out we are expecting a whoopsy baby too!

Due date is 6th of October

I was at home with my last 2 but this time around I own my own business and work 6 days so will have to do that basically up to the birth... At least I can give myself a break when the nausea kicks in, and no boss to kick me off EB lol

I'm basically still in shock, but am enjoying reading all your posts original.gif

Sorry to hear that araluan...take care of yourself.

Mummy2013, SunnyFlower, bellakitten - welcome!! biggrin.gif

So today I've started feeling the heaviness in my uterus and a few pulling twinges.  Similar to last time...I think I might be more aware than last time so I'm picking up things earlier.
Making dinner last night (apricot chicken) was a bit dicey...hope that doesn't mean I'm in for really bad morning sickness this time!

Just popping in to say hi! I had my BFP on Sunday... and yesterday... and this morning original.gif Had a feeling that this might be our lucky cycle. Haven't told DH yet - I'm waiting for our wedding anniversary tomorrow to surprise him! Due 15th Oct (FF says 14th based on ovulation, but 16th based on standard calculations, so I'm splitting the difference)

Saw the GP today, and got all my blood tests done. He was very reluctant to give me a referral for a dating scan though. And he future dated it so I can't use it til I'm 9wks or so, even though I asked for it as a just in case like in my previous pregnancies, when I got spotting I was able to use it to reassure myself. *sigh* I'll be about to see my OB by then, with any luck.

Sorry to all those ladies that have already had to say good-bye. Hope that you're all ok.

Congratulations Mumma Freedles!
Your gp sounds a bit too controlling. I think most people here are having their scans a few weeks earlier than that? I'd go see a different gp..

#24 Mummy2013

Posted 05 February 2013 - 06:18 PM

Hi Sunny

My husband, children and I had sat down and spoken about adding another member. But we weren't trying and we were trying if that makes sense. And although we had spoken about another child I still freaked. I have been drained the last couple of weeks and find it hard to keep my eyes open which with a three year old I need to be awake

Thanks MrsRadiant, really looking forward to the scan but didn't have an early one with DS so a little nervous too. Until then I will live vicariously through you and your scan next week  wink.gif

Wow, lots of newbies, congrats all original.gif

araluan, hope all goes well, enjoy the sept group, would be lovely to hear any news about the birth though if you care to pop back in any time.

Mamma freedles, my GP told me dating scans are more acurate the earlier they are but just have to be after 6w. She said much later than 7w they aren't as acurate. I would consider going to another GP if you can to get a different referral if you really wanted a dating scan.
