Congrats, workinmumma! When did you get your BFP? I'm going to my Dr for confirmation on the 2nd so hopefully I can have an EDD soon!

EDD either 30 August or 2 September. Given DD was 2 weeks late I think it is safe to assume I will be having a September baby again all going well.

Hi! I got my bfp last sunday edd is 5/9. Havent been to gp yet will probably go the week after next.
This is my 3rd baby.
Af is only 2 days late as of today i tested at 10dpo due to having heartburn and yep it was a bfp on a first response then did a digital a few days later and got pregnant 1-2. No symptoms yet but i didnt get morning sickness until after 12 weeks with my other two. Btw my youngest is only 9mths. This bub was planned but we didnt think it would happen the first go.

Congrats, nikki!

AFM- I tested on CD28 and CD29, both BFP.
Going back on 2/1 for confirmation with GP. I saw her on 24/12 and it was faint positive urine test, but it was too early for her to be confident to proceed as if it was the real thing.

My boobs didn't get sore, but they did get itchy! I had mild headaches and nausea and cramps/twinges in my pelvis which told me something was up. Either AF from hell or BFP. I just came off Implanon late November so had not had an AF since it was removed.

Hi ladies congrats to all. This is my second my DS is 17 months is birth date is 14 Aug.

EDD is 3rd Sept so my babies will be just over 2 years apart. My Dr wouldn't run a blood test ( I got a strong positive on HPT she said she didn't see the point of running blood tests. Different approach to my first preg but I guess I am a bit more relaxed about things) so my first scan ( 12 weeks) is not until 26 Feb.

Chat soon DS has just woken up

I was getting horrible pelvic girdle pain, tiredness and nausea until a few days ago and then it all stopped. I'm feeling fine at the moment so I guess I will wait and see if it is just a lull in symptoms or whether the pregnancy has stopped progressing.

Well ladies i am spotting and did a test and line is very faint. Calling an early loss here. Good luck to the rest of you. I am sad but better now then later on down the track.  sticky baby dust to you all

Nellie b symptoms come and go as your body adjusts to the hormones. I felt ok for a week or so then ms symptoms hit me again today.

Nikki baby1 sorry to hear about your loss.

Hi all, we found out on the 27th that we are due with bub number 3.
A woopsie surprise!

I'm still BF my DS who was born Jan 2013, cycles still all over the place so I'll need a scan to confirm dates.

Congrats mammas :-)

Can i please join? I'm 4 weeks today.  tested on CD 26 (due to having strange lower abdo pain and dizziness)  and had a positive and on CD 27 went to dr and got a blood test.  the result was positive.  very early still.  we have an uss booked for the 10 jan.  will be 5+2
The sad things is that my DH will be leaving for 10 months overseas on the 14th so he will miss the whole pregnancy and the birth, but after 19 months of an Infertilty diagnosis and scans, fertility drugs,  surgeries and the threat of IVF we are just stoked that we are pregnant.
im hopping its a sticky. my boobs are sore and feel like they are bigger already.
hopeing for a stickie and really hoping that everything goes ok.

Hi! I'm tentatively joining, due around late august/early September. I got my bfp on Christmas eve. This will be #2 for us :)

Congrats to you all!

Nikkibaby1 I'm so sorry for your loss.

Hi everyone

Only 4.5 weeks, due early September. Confirmed today with a blood test. This is my third round of IVF and will be my first.

Excited, nervous and hoping for a heartbeat at the scan in a few weeks!

#16 KoalaTeeTime

Posted 02 January 2014 - 09:14 PM

Hi Little bug! I got BFP on Xmas eve too :-)

My Dr thinks I am a week behind what I thought I was though, so that means probably second week September EDD.

Congrats, and welcome, Red Mollie!!

What a happy story, Tmay- after all the trying and waiting to have a success!!! Fingers crossed it sticks like superglue for you.

Hey everyone! Congrats to you all! I'd love to join. I'm only 3 weeks in with #1, so I guess it's a tentative join since it's still early days!

#18 Scarletphoenix

Hi everyone.
Got a BFP on New Years Day. Am now 4 weeks. DD is almost 18 months, so this is #2 for us.  Less nausea this time round which is nice!
Wishing everyone all the best for a smooth 9 months ahead.

Hi all, great to see some more girls here! I'm surprised that even though this is my second baby I'm still so anxious about the whole process! I joined a dig for my first pregnancy and found it incredibly supportive and we are still in touch today :)

How's everyone feeling? I don't really feel pregnant yet, though I am very bloated and my pants are tight already. I have a feeling I'll be showing earlier this time around!  According to bloods I'm 5-6 weeks, but may check this with a dating scan if I can convince the Dr. Looking forward to getting to know you all.

#20 Tmay0183

Little_bug....symptoms?  my boobs are hurting like crazy and I'm rather tired.  been exercising and that helps with the fatigue.  this is my first pregnancy and I'm hoping to keep my fitness going.  I'm a pretty fit person normally so I'm hopping that that keeps up.  i think with my husband not being here will make it easier to pass the time with exercise.

I'm looking forward to my scan next week.

just a question?  all the books say don't eat under cooked meat.  however i LOVE my steak med rare and last night we went out and i ordered medium and it was horrible.  tasted like old boots.  an anyone help me out with their experience?

#21 KoalaTeeTime

Posted 04 January 2014 - 01:29 PM

I've got what feels like non-stop indigestion/queasiness, and am pretty tired most days. Yesterday I came home, ate some toasties, and slept from 5:30pm til 9:30pm. At least when I'm sleeping my stomach isn't bothering me.

The Dr took blood from me on Thursday, and I have to go back next week. It doesn't sound like she will refer me for any scans until like 16 weeks. Does that sound right? I had to convince her for a referral for a CVS (I'm worried about genetic problems...probably for no good reason though). I really wanted the 6 or 7 week Doppler to hear the heartbeat, too. I'll ask her about that next week.

She just seems so laid back, and I'm worried about missing out on a place in the birthing centre I want to go to...

Sorry to hear Tmay and koalateatime! Though in a way it would be comforting to have symptoms. I pretty much  managed to avoid ms before so hoping that I'm lucky again.

Tmay I'm not sure about undercooked meat but from memory I ate medium steaks through my last pregnancy and will do the same this time around. I'm more concerned about deli meats and salads. Maybe check with your doctor?

Koalateatime I had a us at 8 weeks last time and it was just offered to me, which was great!  I also had another us at 12 weeks to check for any abnormalities. Can you book into the birth centre without a referral? I'm planning on ringing my ob on Monday as I waited till 3 months last time and that was way too late to get the one I wanted!

I'm roughly 5 and a half weeks, nausea has just kicked in, but no vomiting yet (with my previous two I started spewing as soon as I POAS).

No sore boobs either which is good, I'm still breastfeeding and I would like to keep feeding for another 3 weeks at least until my little dude turns one.
I am really tired though, we move interstate in 2 weeks, I'm busy sorting all of the crap associated with that, and I'm trying to get as much done as I can now before I feel ill, although I am hoping this pregnancy I don't have hideous symptoms like my others.

Hope you are all well.

Hi ladies,

I think I might be joining you, I got a feint bfp today.  I'm not 100% sure of dates! because I still haven't had AF back since I had DS almost 6 months ago, but based on dtd dates, I'm estimating I'm due around September 12th.  This will be our third, our oldest is 11, and the baby is 6 months this week (born in July)

I'm in shock, we only decided just before Christmas we were going to start trying again.  Our second baby was conceived with IVF after more than 4 years ttc, so to back it up with a one hit wonder is kind of amazing!  That said, I'm not getting my hopes up too much yet until I get some blood tests done, because I was diagnosed with a progesterone deficiency when pregnant with #2 and had to take supplements twice a day until 12 weeks - hopefully I can avoid it this time around because it's ridiculously expensive!

Look forward to chatting with you all!

So exciting ladies! I'm a possible joiner too after a faint bfp about an hour ago. However, I just FEEL pregnant. This is our #2 with my girl turning 4 in March. Estimating I'm due 2nd week of September but hope to find out for sure soon :)

My cycle was due to start a week ago and have had lower abdominal pains, passing flashes of nausea and tiredness. Think I'm roughly 3 weeks
