Hey ladies!!!! Congratulations to you all!!
It is very surreal to me to be writing in another DIG as my son has just turned 1 on 14th dec!
My long fertility story is it took 3 years of fertility assistance to get my first baby boy and actually had an mc after treatment in october....decided i wanted to drink over the xmas holidays....and boom.....pregnant naturally!
Im close to 7 weeks....so due 31st august....but hated being 1 of the last to have my bubba as i was 2 weeks late.....so thought this group would be better!
Just had bloods done ad hcg is 12000.
Dating scan booked 16th jan!
It just doesnt feel real!!!!!

Well I think I'm going to belong here. Been holding off for a couple days waiting for AF to come which was meant to be today but with 4 very faint BFP I don't think she's going to come. Not to mention all the symptoms over the last few days (nausea, sore nipples, tired & metallic taste) I'm pretty certain I'm up the duff! Not planned and quite a surprise! I have a full on 2 year old little miss and wasn't planning to multiply further just yet. Universe must know better 😂 See how things go after having 4 previous miscarriages 😍😘 hoping for healthy babies all round 😊

Congratulations SugarGirl, how amazing to be naturally pregnant after trying so hard first time around! You must be thrilled! I always go 2 weeks over as well, so I'll know how you feel ;)

Hi MummaofMacey! Congratulations on your BFP. Wishing you a happy and healthy 8 months :)

Hi everyone - haven't had a chance to post since earlier in the week, back at work and have been busy while everyone else is still on holidays!

Anyway good to see lots of new positives :) Hope everyone is feeling well. I'm not too bad, afternoon sickness is hitting me - but so far it's just an off feeling, not actually being sick...

Have my second wedding today since getting positive tests, secretive not drinking was so hard at the last one!!!

My dating scan is booked for the 16th Jan too! (I think) - DH has booked it for me as I'm overseas at the moment. An exciting thing to look forward too when I get home.
I'm still spotting, on and off. It's not bright red and mainly only when I wipe, or a tiny bit in my underwear. I hope it stays that way and is normal 😬

Well,  we are confirmed :)
Had a HCG test on Thursday afternoon and the level was only 13. So I had another test Saturday morning.  Got the results today and it went from 13 to 39 in less than 48 hours.  So happy with that :)
I now have to go back to the doc to get a referral to my local hospital,  as I will be considered high risk this time (after issues I had last time)

How was everyone's weekends?? Anyone having symptoms yet??

Congrats! I'm tempted to buy another digital test to make sure it now says 3+ weeks haha...

Felt a little bit of neusea yesterday morning, otherwise just a bit tired, boobs sore, and the dreaded spotting continues.

Same here! I've spent way too much money on pee sticks already :/ Why do they have to be so expensive?!

My only symptoms so far is sore boobs and feeling a bit more tired.

I've just had a BFP, looks like I will be due mid Sept.

This will be my second, I have a 19 month old toddler who keeps me busy.

Hi all,  so my partner and I did a test before new years and it was BFN.  HOWEVER, he bought me another test in Saturday and he ran off with it after I pee'd on it and wouldn't let me look..... in a matter of minutes he showed me the digital test saying PREGNANT... THEN the 2-3 weeks loaded up.  A completely surreal moment as this will be our first child together..... however this will be my 5th pregnancy.... I already have DS11, DD9, DS4 AND DS3....and he has four also from a previous relationship. Our situation is.... one if a kind but he is a project manager and I'm a pre-service teacher.  Initially I was shocked about being pregnant N he was over the moon.... but then I bled on Sunday.  The bleeding has ceased but it put alot into perspective for me.  So we think our Edd is the 16/9/17 but will need to get it confirmed.....  I can't believe I'm doing this again......

Hey Ladies!

Nervously joining after getting my BFP yesterday. Due date is around the 16th of September. We already have two girls 4.5 and 10m. A lot of losses and years of ttc in the past so this is a nice little surprise.

Congrats to you all and I'm so sorry to those dropping out (so hard!) xx

Just a bit! I've got an almost 5 years old too! I hope I don't show too early as I'm a moh in April and one chic has already been booted out for being Pregnant so I wasn't planning on announcing until afterwards.

#73 JeppyBear

Hi all :-)

I posted on here a couple of years ago - was due in Sept 2015 and had a miscarriage.

I'm now 43, just tested positive with a clear blue test at 2-3 weeks, so I'm due somewhere in the 3rd week of September. I didn't bother waiting for AF (which is due tomorrow), I kind of knew already I was pregnant due to the symptoms.

I've booked my doctors appointment for Saturday - not in a rush to get all of the confirmations.

Difference this time is I'm 53 kilos lighter and no longer working as I'm studying full time. Not excited yet, but I experienced a high level of heart break last time.

Hope I am successful this time.

Hi everyone,

I got a BFP test on Monday (and another Monday afternoon and another Tuesday and Wednesday morning) 😊

Looks like baby will be due around 18 September.

This will be our first baby so it's all feeling a little surreal but hubby is really excited while I am being slightly cautious/nervous with a dash of excitement.

Off for blood test this morning to confirm.

Hope you all have an amazing 9 mths ahead of you x
