Hi everyone, first time pregnant here. Due about the 24/2 DH and I started trying, I had thought we were going to have a lot of trouble as DH has a low sperm count (he found out when he was 17yo due a medical condition) and i have IR, but I got pregnant on the second month!

Still in a bit of shock honestly and still getting my head around it - as well as all the aconyms. I get my BT results back on Friday, hopefully all is well :-)

Hi everyone!

First timer, I loved the forums during wedding planning and hope to get as much fun and support, and give in return, over here too!

I've had a weird start, but am due 24/2 according to prelim testing. Proper dating scan will be next week according to GP. Here's hoping it sticks.

Congrats to everyone!

Hi ladies,
New to the forum, and hoping to join in here if that's ok.
I'm due on 17 Feb with my second. I currently have a delightful 19 month old ball of energy of a son. I confess to being nervous about what's to come because last time I had... not great experiences with pregnancy and birth. Yet here I am.
It is proving really hard to keep the secret this time round. I'm sick, emotional,exhausted and bloated. Last time I was only sick. Only 6 more weeks of keeping quiet!

Hi everyone!

I just posted in the other thread, I'm due Feb 20 with our second Bub. Our DD is 2.5. I had a dating scan on Monday which confirmed we are measuring spot on and nice strong HB which made me feel ready to join in here as we actually lost a baby at 8.5wks in April which should have been due Nov. feeling a bit nervous but very hopeful to be pregnant again so soon.

I'm Based in Sydney & going private with the same OB I had last time at POW in Randwick.

My DIG from DD is still going strong so if anyone can PM me on the details that would be great 😊

Congrsts to all the other mamas xx
