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.

I didn't really give many details about myself: I got a positive result from an HPK yesterday and AF was due yesterday. In terms of symptoms, the nausea has begun, I have this horrible taste in my mouth most of the time, I'm SO tired (like I can just lie down and sleep whenever) and I keep getting hot flushes randomly throughout the day.

Other than that, very excited! HAHA! Due date is apparently the 12th. :-)

No symptoms here yet, I only tested because I wanted a baseline 'I definitely wasn't pregnant in January'  with plans to test very 2 months until I got a bfp or my cycle back.  Although if my other pregnancies are anything to go by, come next weekend I'll be falling asleep standing up during the day, with insomnia during the night, and super headaches in between.

Tmay- congrats I found exercise has helped with tiredness. I ran and cycled until about 14 weeks and did squad swimming right up until I delivered.

koalateetime- depending on your age a nt scan which is undertaken at between 11-13 weeks ( including blood tests) is undertaken to determine risk factor for main chromosomal abnormalities is pretty standard .

Lima- congrats busy times ahead but it will be great to have a family of 3 and what an amazing story after your ivf journey!

Hi ladies! Congratulations to you all.

I'm gunning for position of vaguest of the group, this is our third (DS2 is nine months) and it only occurred to me yesterday to test, I'm 5 weeks four days and due September 1! How did I miss this?!!!!

We're in shock, this is much earlier than we'd planned, but I must admit its really nice to know that this will be our last baby and we can start to move forward as a complete family after this.

... That said, we are going to be insanely busy and I am terrified!!!!!

Oh Lima I just saw you're in the same situation, I'm so glad I came on here!

LoveMyLife it is good to hear someone else is not feeling so sick this time around.  I am feeling really nervous about my lack of symptoms. At this point with DD I had constant nausea, tiredness and a weird metallic taste. This time I am feeling fine. Hope everything is okay and it stays this way! Who knows, maybe it is a boy this time!

Hi I am going to join in here too. I got my BFP on the 30/12 and think I am just over 4 weeks with my first. I'm going to the doctors tomorrow to confirm everything. Very nervous and excited about the whole thing!!!

Congratulations to you all on your BFP

Scarlet this is my second as well. Over the last few days I was beginning to worry about lack of symptoms after a few days of sore boobs and nausea around 4 weeks I have had nothing. Today thàt yuk mild hangover type feeling hit me just shy of 6 weeks now which is when it kicked it last time. I think enjoy the lack of symptoms when they last you never know when they are going to hit.

I feel I am showing much earlier too. My sister asked me on xmasday if I was pregnant I was only 4 weeks and hadn't even tested! She said my stomach looked more noticeable.

Is anybody else finding they're really tired all the time now? I have always loved sleeping, and been a champion lazyholic, but would get bad headaches and feel groggy when I slept too much.

Now it's like I can just sleep for ages, multiple times in the day, and have no negative effect. Other than wasting precious weekend/daylight hours...

Yes I am always tired atm! My first big sign was a 3 hour nap last Sunday, test on Monday was positive. I have had a nap everyday since, two today...

Hi ladies. I got my  bfp last week and retested today to make sure it wasn't another chemical pregnancy, stronger bfp today. Looks like I am due 14th September, still need to have a blood test. I have 1 DD who is 23months, had HG with her and am hoping I don't get it again.
Symptoms so far - massive sore boobs.

How many weeks in are you ladies? Anyone else paranoid of miscarriage? >_<

#40 MsPowell

Posted 06 January 2014 - 09:27 AM

Yoonseon - yes I am always worried about miscarriage. Going to the doctors today so hopefully she will help me to relax a little. I am the same day as you 4 weeks and 3 days. How did you get the little ticker in as your signature?

I'm going to the dr tomorrow! :-) I'm probably going to talk about being worried about miscarriage, also. I'm so desperate just to make it through the next few months!

Umm if you click on mine, it should take you to a link where you can get your own. :-)

Koalateetime -  Id be pushing for scans.  your dr sounds a bit dodgy if she is not sending you for scans till 16/40.  i asked for mine the day after i got my two lines and saw the doc.  and i was still not technically late for AF.  my scan is this friday and ill be 5+2.  
if she is too laid back then change drs.  I'm an emergency nurse, so i see a lot of all the bad things in pregnancy (ectopics, miscarriages. bleeding etc) so I'm super on top of asking my dr what i want and when.  they are pretty good I find, when you push them.

still no nausea for me (touch wood).  looking forward to fridays scan.
have a great week ladies.

#43 KoalaTeeTime

Posted 06 January 2014 - 10:25 AM

She's my GP since forever, I think maybe she's laid back because she's in a bulk billing practice? When I got the first BFP it was the day I thought AF was due but it was faint so she made me come back a week later to retest...so this week will be three weeks in a row I'm seeing her :-P she's not rushing at all.

But I just want the referral to the birth center!!! Also I'm kicking nmyself that I didn't upgrade my health insurance til May last year...that means any non-routine scans/tests aren't covered. Bugger! By May this year I will be like halfway through already (touch wood).

KoalaTeeTime - I'm completely in the same boat. Christmas Day, had a nap for 2 hours. New Years Eve was asleep at 10 and yesterday was napping on and off most of the day. So thankful hubby's been on holidays to keep an eye on Little Miss until now.
I'm also one who sleeps very easily but this is crazy haha

#45 SummerSoul

Ps. Sorry to hear about your health insurance.
I think pushing a little for a scan sooner is good advice

Hey ladies, as suspected, this wasn't a sticky one, more than likely due to my dodgy progesterone issues.

Good luck to you all

Lima I'm so sorry for your loss.

#48 KoalaTeeTime

Posted 06 January 2014 - 12:29 PM

Does anybody know about how much a Doppler scan or internal ultrasound would cost so we can hear the heartbeat at around week 7 or 8? I'll ask my GP for a referral when I go on Thursday.

So sorry to hear that it didn't stick, Lima :-(

Joining today - haven't even told my DH yet!

Got 2 very strong positives today- 2 days late and went to the doctor today - also positive test.

Waiting for my bloodwork tomorrow!

Lots of twinging and feeling nauseous - thought I was just getting over jet lag!

The amazing thing is that my tentative due date is 13/9 which is my Nan's birthday (she died last year on my birthday) so would be a special date for me.

Wishing everyone the best of luck xx

Congrats, Akadia!! Welcome :-)

How will you tell your DH? I love stories of BFP reveals.
