Hello all!
I've not been on a forum before but really wanted to be a part of this. Sorry to learn of those who've had to leave the group already.
This is my first pregnancy and I'm 8w3d due 4th march. I've had a dating scan at 6w in which there was a heart rate of 135bpm. I've booked my obstetrian in and have another blood test, the nuchal scan and harmony testing in the next few weeks.
I feel hung over every single day and haven't exersied in 4 weeks (used to work out 3-4times a week).
I've told only my closest friends all of whom don't have kids so it will be nice to get to know you all going through the same thing!

Welcome to all the newbies and congratulations!

I'm now 7+5 or 6, I have two dates since my dating scan so will see which one my OB wants to go with when I see him again on Friday. I'm getting a bit antsy between scans so I'm looking forward to seeing little bub again on Friday.

I also feel hung over most of the day, I go from 0 to 100 in terms of hunger and feel sick when I need to eat and the indigestion 😩

Welcome to all the new members - it seems like March is going to be a very busy month!

I had my scan yesterday and it was all good, got to see the little heart flickering away. I cried of course! Thankfully still haven't thrown up but sooo tired, fell asleep on the lounge at 8 last night, and feel very sick very quickly if I'm hungry - so I feel like I'm just eating all the time to avoid it!
