Hi Bebe B welcome and congratulations! I'm also due on the 15th December :-) (by our dates).

I'm waiting on some blood test results for a nasty rash that has come up all over my body. Once I know more, I'll update. Waiting is so hard!

Hi ladies! Joining in here. Think I'm due around the 6th but don't have any real dates yet because no lmp and scan is next week. It's all just a guess at the moment based on rising hcg. This will be our second Bub DS is 17 months. We had an early miscarriage back in feb so pretty lucky to be expecting again already and hoping everything goes well. Been so sick the past week, it is just awful. looking forward to getting to know everyone. I still keep in touch with the ladies from my sons DIG.

Hi all ! Jumping in here after a positive HPT on Friday, and a much darker positive HPT on Monday after a weekend away camping.
This is our second bub, our 1st, a girl, is almost 2. Had been TTC for 7 months, and I can't believe we have finally got our bub on the way!
It all feels quite surreal! Looking forward to being on this journey with you all. My first DIG was awesome, and still going strong!
Estimated due date is 23 December...Christmas baby!!!

Yay bubbaowe! Welcome Bebe and Pepps too, so exciting.
Lucyloo fingers crossed for your test results, hope all is ok, perhaps just a reaction to your recent illness. I remember getting a similar rash once after I'd had a bout of food poisoning - the body can do funny things!

PS I just wanted to say how brilliant I am finding her the Ovia pregnancy app. I'd highly recommend it, especially for all those expecting their first Bub. It gives you daily updates about how your baby is developing and what's going on in your own body. Also gives you a place to record what you're eating and what exercise you're doing (and gives you hints and tips along those lines too), as well as a spot to record any questions you have for your next doctor appointment, baby name ideas, notes on milestones etc. I'm really loving it! :)

I love the Ovia app too! Yesterday DP was telling me how wonderful he was for doing all these chores around the house so I pointed out to him that whilst it looked like I wasn't doing a lot, I was actually busy making a spinal cord for our baby which is pretty damn important!
