Thanks Sandra. Taking my first tentative steps into here. Due Date 18 June. Bloods to confirm tomorrow with my clinic, as mine is an IVF baby, so no idea what the process will be after that, but my hpt are getting darker, so that's a good sign.

Edited to add, probably should say this is our first, so no idea what we are doing!

I’m back again.

I’ve just learned that I’m pregnant with #2. It came as a bit of a surprise, it was the first month of “trying” and as with my first baby, that’s all it took. I thought it would take longer as I’m still breastfeeding my 15 month old boy. I’m yet to go to the doctor to confirm and have scheduled that for next week.  I think my due date is likely to be around 20 June making these two almost 2 years apart.  

I’m a bit excited and overwhelmed at the same time.

Hi sundayfunday & KatieTL!

Congratulations on your pregnancies :)

I had my viability scan yesterday, and the U/S EDD is June 4 (LMP 1 June).

We have a 2.3yo daughter and went through a miscarriage in May this year - both were conceived first go, so it's been frustrating that it's taken this "long" - not that I was expecting it this month.

Hey ladies, just got my BFP this morning so dipping my toe in here to say hi! I've been pregnant twice already in the last 6 months and lost both babies, but I'm holding out hope that 3rd time is a charm. I also have 2 children - 5 and 3 who would love a sibling.

Sorry to hear about your loss sleung85. It certainly makes the first trimester a lot scarier in subsequent pregnancies.

Hi all, so sorry to hear about your losses nikkidee and sleung. What % of pregnancies end in miscarriage, I hope we all have an uneventful 9 months

Hi all
So happy to be joining. Got a bfp two nights ago, seeing my GP tomorrow...so hoping it all works out! This is #2 for us, and took 4 months of trying...

Sundayfunday I think the general risk is 1/5 but my doc says because of my age my risk is 1/4 (I'm 36).   I hope this pregnancy is completely uneventful!!

Are you having any feeding aversions at all?

I'm still feeding my almost 15 month and have noticed a drop in supply already plus I'm hating her touching me and feeding.
I feel so awful :(

I am still nursing my 3 year old before bed and the aversion is awful already. It's definitely going to have to stop soon. I did nurse my now 5 year old all the way up to 32 weeks when pregnant with my son though. She was only 10 months when I got pregnant and needed to keep going. It was challenging but definitely doable.

Hi All, just checking in to say that blood tests confirmed pregnancy today. Scan booked in for 2 November, now I just have to sit back and hope everything continues to progress as it should

Hi Everyone, I'm due on 3rd June based on Ovulation day. Been very nervous as had chemical pregnancies each time in the two cycles before this pregnancy. Everything seems to be progressing well and I'm now looking forward to my first appointment including a scan to check on bub.

#20 SeriouslyImpatient

Posted 13 October 2017 - 09:35 PM

Hi everyone, I’m due around the 1st of June according to blood tests. Have a scan next Thursday so I’ll know more accurately then. This was a very big surprise for us as our first baby is only 9months old 😳  and he was conceived with much more difficulty, time and planning. My last DIG is still such a great suppprt for me and I’m sure this one will be the same! Looking forward to sharing the journey with you all 🙂

Welcome all the new comers.

How is everyone feeling? Many symptoms?

Does anyone know if there is a list/timeline of what you need to do once you get your bfp?

As for myself, I don't know what to do. I am struggling between trying to not get to excited, I keep expecting the worst case scenario. Is anyone else feeling like that?

Hi everyone, I'm due on 14th June according to my ovulation tracker, have got a GP appointment booked Monday for confirmation bloods.
Have done 2 HPTs and both positive a week apart but still feeling like it's too good to be true! This is our second  (we have a 20mo girl) and was so smooth sailing for the first I've just got my fingers crossed we can be so lucky again!
I hate the first trimester, I have no symptoms yet, and last pregnancy I only really had fatigue and worried myself sick that there was something wrong!

Yes definitely relatable.
Trying to make myself be cautious but then forgetting, getting super excited and then getting in a weird loop.

I've been symptom city since 3w+4.
Constant vomiting, nausea and fatigue.

I threw up outside of a lush and a myer today because bath bomb and perfume fragrances were too much.

Pretty much what you do is see your GP, get your bloods, get a referral for your first ultrasound around 8 weeks and then wait.

Excruciating waiting.
