Wow. Looks like I am first in here!
I'm due November 3 with my second. My DS is 10mo, will be an age gap of 18.5m. Hoping to go early this time, as I was contracting regularly from 37w with DS with no cervix dilation, but once it finally dilated it was quick!
My first DIG is still going strong, but hoping to meet some new lovely ladies.

Hi -I call silver!
Subject to a dating scan, I will be due on 04 November.
This is our first after a miscarriage at 10 weeks in October.
I had forgotten how tired I feel when pregnant!! I am falling asleep at my desk!

Hi Maeli - seven! My goodness. How lucky are you!
I am going to have a LOT of questions for you as we move forward - I am sure you must be an expert!

Hi gals, congrats to all of you!
I got a BFP on friday night (and another saturday & sunday).
This will be baby #4 for us. I m/c last year at 12 weeks so I'm holding my breath for a while... I also m/c my first pregnancy 9 years ago at 13 weeks. Feeling more confident about this one for some reason.
I'm not sure when I'm due yet, very early Nov I think, this was a surprise. I only bought a test because I figured murphy's law would kick in and my period would arrive... wrong!
I've been very nauseas and tired already, so I hope I'm not further along than I think...
My kids will be 8, 6 and 3 when this one is born.

Hi luvmy3 - congrats!!
I just got my 11dpo hcg back & it was 490. This seems at the high end - I have joked about wanting twins..!!!
Posted 26 February 2013 - 07:47 PM
I hope I get to join you all. I got my first BFP this morning with a FR test which, and a second BFP with a pregnosis a few hours later, as I was still in a state of disbelief. It said to read the test in 3min or add another 1 min, but do not read after 10min. After 6min it became a BFP too - am waiting till tomorrow morning to do another test.
My husband and I unfortunately had an ectopic pregnancy last year, and it would have been due this week, so I'm really hoping that that one sticks.
I was very overweight last year, so I lost 25kg, as I was scared of getting an ectopic again and wanted to make sure I gave the next baby a good chance. So here we are with a BFP on our first month trying. YAY.
I have a doctors appointment tomorrow afternoon, and will let you know how my HCG levels are. If I calculated correctly, I would be due around November 8th =)

Just found out my news yesterday and we're due Nov 2nd
We've been through our first round of IVF and I'm still on the crinone.
I'm soooo bloated that my tummy is actually hurting from the stretch.
Was anyone on crinone, found out they were BFP, stopped crinone, and lost the bloatiness?
I'm really hoping so :S I feel like I'm the size of what I should be at 5 months.
Posted 26 February 2013 - 09:59 PM
After 4 years of trying I am here!! I am due on the 5th of November which is our 5 year anniversary so happy but so scared
Best of luck to everyone
Posted 26 February 2013 - 10:56 PM
Great to see this thread getting some numbers
Posted 27 February 2013 - 05:48 AM
Can i join too? I Got my positive yesterday. It will be baby number 3 for me.
I had a miscarriage last march, so i am trying to stay hopeful.

Good morning ladies!
How is everyone feeling today?
Me - I am nauseous, extremely tired, sore bbs, icky mouth, lots of excess saliva, can't concentrate, and one of my eyes keeps twitching lol!
No more bleeding, which is awesome. I've continued to test, and they've kept getting darker, which has been reassuring under the circumstances.
AllyK81 - Yes were very lucky indeed Your hcg levels sound good. Twins would be great!
Joan 10 - Congratulations on the pregnancy, and on the weightloss! I've just lost 15 myself
Goodluck with your appointment!
aussieindk - Congratulations!!

Hi Maeli, i have no symptoms other than feeling tired... i never had any symptoms with my 2 boys so didnt expect any this time and so im wondering whether or not i will experience morning sickness.
Posted 27 February 2013 - 05:26 PM
I'm a second time mummy, first time joining a DIG.
Got BFP on tuesday night and worked out today that bub will be due around Nov 3rd.
Still a bit flabbergasted. even though we've been trying since nov last year.
I had convinced myself it wasn't going to happen this month. I did the test on a whim because i had 2 sitting in the drawer and I was sure I AF was about to arrive and thought it would get me over this darned PMT i'd been having.
I debated phoning hubby - it was after midnight and he was still at work - but figured he'd be more cross about me keeping it to myself. First thing I said was "its not PMT!" - He got my drift straight away, clever man.
Not much in the way of symptoms, except sore boobs and a very short temper.
Last time i already had heaps of nausea which was how we knew. Hoping it will be different this time, my least fav part of my last pg was the constant sea sick feeling I had.
Still a bit in shock and will wait to tell anyone. Can't believe we'll have a new bub for Christmas!
I have heaps of travel coming up this year 3 OS trips for work (april, July and Sept). Not sure how i'll cope with the July one, did the same thing last time and was selling at a trade show in singapore at 6mths - the humidity almost killed me and I was too tired to do anything except work and eat.
My mind is boggling when ever I remember - the rest of the time i'm amazed that its biz as usual.
Guess I should book a DR app - but that would then make it very real....
Posted 27 February 2013 - 09:07 PM
Damn just lost my post. I'll do the short version.
I'm due 6 november. This is quite a shock to myself and DP. Did a test on monday, tuesday and today. I have a gp appt next tuesday to get bloods done and a dating scan booked in at 7 weeks.
This is our 3rd. We have 2 boys and won't find out what we are having. A girl would be great but I am sure I'm destined for boys and that's not a bad thing. I had 2 m/c between my boys so am quite nervous and not game to tell anyone until all is considered the safe point. I've been wanting to post since monday but didn't have the nerve.
So congrats to all of you. It's so exciting and hearing all your stories and vents will be great company.
Take care, xx

I think i am due on the 3rd of November.
I am feeling tired and my boobs are sore, and i have been more argumentative/ get grumpy quicker. My two girls were born two weeks early.
Posted 28 February 2013 - 06:30 AM
Hey ladies, I got my betas back - at 13dpo it was 55, and 16dpo was 283!! Doubling time of 28hrs.... Curious to see what the 7w scan reveals.
Will hopefully come back for some personals, but welcome to all the new BFPs!
Posted 28 February 2013 - 06:30 AM
Hi again all =)
Glad to see more and more names being added to our DIG.
My appointment yesterday went well. Blood test and urine sample. My OB who was aware of my previous ectopic wanted me to get two HCG results before seeing him just to ensure its progressing well but my normal GP said I would be fine.
Of course I'm still getting both, but I feel so much more confident with this pregnancy. It just feels... Different. I got my bfp from the hpt by 10dpo unlike the ectopic at 18dpo due to low hcg. Plus this time I have heaps more symptoms.
- fatigue. Asleep by 930pm as opposed to the usual 11pm,
- sore boobs
- and the most embarrassing of all gas and constipation. This is my most prevalent symptom =( lol
Anyway, hope your pregnancies have been smooth so far. I wish it were end of March already so I could get my early scan lol.
Posted 28 February 2013 - 06:50 AM
Got my BFP last friday at 13dpo and bHCG at 16dpo was 225.
I have 23mth DS and have had 2 miscarriages (nov12 & jan13) so praying for a sticky bub.
So far just feeling really tired and you know that feeling when you've been on a boat for a while then you get off and you still feel like you're rocking? I have that ever so slighlty.
Looking forward to getting to know you all and wishing us all an uneventful 8mths!
Posted 28 February 2013 - 10:10 AM
Took another test this morning and there is no denying it..... just having no symptoms other than being tired makes it hard for me to believe it. I am going to book into my Dr on the 18th and he will give me a referral for a scan and i will get that done on the 21st so i should be about 6 weeks 4 days... omg in 3 weeks i will get to see my precious lil miracle
Posted 28 February 2013 - 11:14 AM
I am hoping to join your group, I got my BFP a few days ago VERY VERY FEINT so I am still kinda not 100% but AF hasnt arrived and the BFP was there... I have been with EB for a few years now and as this will be baby #2 my other DIG is still going very strong so I really hope to have the same relationship with you girlies.
I am very nervous (and have been driving my first Dig crazy) not being 100% about it all... I am very confident that I am but with the BFP being so so feint I am just a big worry wart!
AF was due on 24 Feb so I am 5 days late, no other symptoms except really bloated and lots of CM (sorry for TMI) and the obvious feint BFP.
PLEASE HELP ME STRESS LESS lol!!
