First post 🎉
I had a bfp last tues but super light. Still super light on thurs. I’m trying to hold out a few more days before testing again. It could be a bit of hcg from last months miscarriage or the start of something new. My boobs say yes! So sensitive all week! Hard to work out when I’m due because of the mc. I’m guessing March 11th

Congratulations Newseason! I'm so sorry to hear of your previous miscarriage xxx

I got my BFP at 12DPO, on the 20th of June. My fertility friend app has my EDD at March 1st, but I will likely deliver earlier due to csection.

I have a DS who is 14 months, we were waiting to get Clomid when we fluked his conception, but this time it was first go! Actually couldn't believe it happened so quickly

Hey everyone, joining here after a bfp on Friday and another this morning. Estimating 4 weeks today, due 10th of March. DH and I are 32, we have three children and so this will hopefully be our fourth.

Congratulations newseason sorry about the miscarriage, have you taken another test?

Congratulations beanette that’s great you were able to conceive without clomid. Maybe your body clicked in with what to do after the pregnancy with your son. How are you feeling?

Thank you! Congratulations to you too xx

I'm not feeling too bad, waves of MS on and off. DS has gastro from daycare at the moment so that's making me feel worse!

Congrats ladies :)
Beanette hope ds is feeling better soon :/ Gastro is awful! Especially pregnant!
Plan to test again in the morning. Feeling like I’m limbo at the moment with my faint lines.
I’m having a blood test in the afternoon because my dr is wanted to double check my hcg went down to 0 after my miscarriage but I’m hoping for soaring levels of something new ;)
Will probably get those results tues or wed.

Congrats to everyone! I just tested positive this morning, a strong positive so i’m in bit of shock because I had my ovulation wrong (I thought I only ovulated a few days ago). Based on revised dates I think i’ll be due around March 8. Look forward to chatting with you all x

Congratulations Zabbit and welcome!

Goodluck with your results newseason. Hope they come through tomorrow. Will be thinking of you. My last pregnancy was conceived straight after a late miscarriage, fingers crossed. Will you poas again today or tomorrow while waiting?

Beanette, I am not good with vomit, to have morning sickness while dealing with a sick child I’m hoping won’t happen over those weeks.

As for me, I’m mainly just bloated so far. In the past nausea and vomiting didn’t hit till after 6 weeks, but carries on for a while. So I’m enjoying myself and getting things done while I can.

Hi ladies. Got my bfp on sat morning and estimate dd 11th march.
I have 2 girls almost 4 and 20months. This will be my last baby.

Congratulations to you all on your bfp. Looking forward to the next part of our journey.

Ive had ms already. I did get it early with my girls and struggle to keep pregnancy suppliments down (i also think they make me feel more sick) is anyone not taking anything?

#10 Zabbit

Posted 02 July 2018 - 01:44 PM

Living_The_Dream: I'm the same re morning sickness. Last pregnancy (my son is 2.5), it kicked in around week 6-7 and lasted until about week 16. I'm not looking forward to that and trying to take advantage now. I am also quite bloated though.

Possum88: re supplements, I just take folate+iodine, and Vitamin D because I'm deficient. I'm a big believer in only supplementing nutrients you're deficient in or critically need, and I'm pretty sure my diet covers the rest of the nutrients in the pregnancy tablets.

Maybe try folate+iodine only (I take the Blackmores I-FOLIC). They're pretty gentle, and nice and small. And at least you'll have that covered for the first trimester. Talk to your GP though, of course.

Congrats Possum88!
A friend of mine also got nauseous talking election and her dr suggested she take them right before bed instead of in the morning. Might help?

Posted 03 July 2018 - 06:26 PM

Hi Ladies,
Literally just got a strong bfp, I’m on CD27. My cycle length is usually 25 days so thought I’d check.  I’m so excited!! I have a Son who turns two this month, he was conceived through IVF and I thought my chances for another were all but gone..
I’m turning 40 in a couple of months so hopeing this one sticks, without any issues.
I didn’t take any vitamins during my last pregnancy so I probably won’t this time either, except for the I folate of course.
Editing to add my due date of 14 March :)

Welcome thesmd and congratulations!!

I bought folic acid tablets and been fine so far taking them at night.

Living_the_dream its great to see a familiar name!

What is everyone's next step? Ive booked my drs appointment for 2 weeks time to check bloods and book for a dating scan.
I did another test today just to use up my last one lol. Definitely pregnant. I just love seeing those lines :)

#14 Layla25

Posted 04 July 2018 - 05:59 AM

Hi, everyone!

I had a super light BFP on Monday that could only be seen on an angle and thought it was an evap, but got more definitive positive tests yesterday and today 😊 the lines are still quite faint which makes me nervous, but I’m very excited to be joining you!

This is #2 for us - our DD is 6. Tentatively due on the 13th 😊

I think I’ll try to get to the doctor in the next week or 2 for bloods and a scan referral.

Congratulations to everyone!

#15 THESMD

Posted 04 July 2018 - 12:12 PM

I am wanting to book in for bloods as soon as possible but because it’s so early hubby wants me to wait a week. (We’ve been here before and had our hearts broken) I think I’ll book in for Monday... need referral to hospital so I can book in the free scans as soon as possible, they book out super fast at my hospital, my last pregnancy I had to have all my scans privately because I left it too late to book them in.

I’m going to have to pee on more sticks in the meantime! 😬

Welcome Layla.

Hi everyone... so here I am again.

I have a four year old son and in April 2017 lost my baby at 12w gestation. It was very upsetting to lose at a time you are ready to announce.

This year our son was flagged with ASD (high functioning) and we decided that having a second child would be a lovely addition for him to navigate his social skills with.

We tried once... once! I knew right away I was pregnant. With my son and my miscarriage, I spotted for half a day and then got really sore breasts. I did a test two weeks ago and had a faint line.

Yesterday I did another one and it is incredibly dark.

My due date is approx 4th or 5th March.

Fingers crossed for a sticky this time and a successful and healthy pregnancy for everyone.

Blergh, just got my first wave of nausea!

Great to see you too Possum xx I take my supplements at night as well, don’t know if it makes much difference though.

Congratulations THESMD that is incredible! Fingers crossed for a happy, healthy pregnancy. I think it is ok to be early as you can then be flexible when booking the scan. I understand what your husband is saying though. As long as the scan isn’t too early.

As for me I talked to my doctor today and have booked in to see him in two weeks. Will do a dating scan soon after that as I want to make sure I am far enough along for there to be someone to see & hear. As for supplements I‘m taking i-folic too and a low dose aspirin. My doctor mentioned calcium which I haven’t looked into. Anyone take that specifically? Maybe I have seen it combined with vitamin d? I take the aspirin because of a past late miscarriage.

Congratulations Layla!! That’s great news. Sounds like everyone is seeing their doctor in two weeks, going to be a busy week on here.

Welcome Jessekah! Great to have that knowing feeling. Sorry for your loss.

Newseason how did you go with your results?

Sorry to hear about your loss too. What does the aspirin do?

#19 Living_The_Dream

Posted 04 July 2018 - 09:14 PM

Thank you. I take it because the only thing they found on my daughter’s autopsy was evidence of placental haemorrhage, it was a perfectly healthy pregnancy, no red flags in any scans, chromosomes all normal etc. My understanding is the aspirin thins your blood, increasing flow between baby and you and decreasing the chance of a clot forming. I was told to start as soon as I got a positive home pregnancy test to help set the placenta up. I took it from 4-36 weeks in my last pregnancy. Any loss is hard, it was my third pregnancy and after two healthy pregnancies I told people at 13 weeks only to lose her at 17 weeks, was a total shock. When she was born the cord was wrapped tightly around her neck twice but it’s controversial if that was a cause as so many babies are born with the cord wrapped around them multiple times, perfectly healthy. It is not usually recommended to take it and many professionals disagree whether aspirin is beneficial or not. Some people swear by it. My rainbow is a perfectly healthy toddler. So it makes me feel ok taking it again.

I will also add they tend to blame chromosomes and problems with the baby with first trimester losses whereas second and third trimester losses tend to be more about the mother or placenta. Of course there are exceptions. Some people also take a low dose aspirin for pre-eclampsia for the second half of their pregnancy.

Congratulations, Jessekah :)

I hope you are all travelling well. It still doesn’t feel real for me! I’ve booked in to see the doctor on Monday, so I think I’ll be almost 5 weeks. I was going to wait, but I’ve been having occasional sharp pains on my right side. I think they are digestion-related, but I’m hoping to get some reassurance that everything is going okay.

Posted 06 July 2018 - 09:49 AM

Hello! I’m very happy to be joining the group. I got an absolute squinter on Wednesday and a more solid line this morning. Feeling oh-so-nervous and praying this wee one sticks. I have 14 mo DD (my rainbow baby).
Est dd around Mar 17.
Looking forward to getting to know you all x

#22 Layla25

Posted 06 July 2018 - 10:39 AM

Congratulations, Making Baby P!

I hear you on being nervous. Fingers crossed these little ones stick around, xo.

Posted 06 July 2018 - 02:09 PM

Guess I can sneak in here too! My first preg and first bfp happened Tuesday. It's very early days, and told myself I wouldn't worry about it this month but I woke up after a dream that I couldn't ride my horse because I was pregnant. Tested, and the faintest line was there. Tested with a pink-dye and it was a bit more obvious.

Hcg test at 12 on Tues, retesting in a week. I thought the tww was torture, but this is next level! We have been 'letting it happen if it happens' for a year, but I had just booked in with a fertility specialist to get answers with my appt at the end of this month! Dr says to keep the appt just in case it doesn't work out. But bfp line is stronger each day. Hopefully it sticks and I save myself from further testing (this time round..).

#24 Living_The_Dream

Posted 06 July 2018 - 04:15 PM

Congratulations MakingBabyP & Blue Bean. You are absolutely right about it being harder than the tww! I find it hard to think about anything else. All the best your hcg rises and those lines get darker.

#25 Layla25

Posted 06 July 2018 - 09:55 PM

Congrats, Blue Bean!

I’m starting to get anxious waiting to see the doctor on Monday. I took another test this morning, and the line hasn’t got any darker since Wednesday 😔 it was a FRER and the line came up really dark white straight away, then gained the faint pink colour over the next couple of minutes. I know it’s not always a reliable indicator, but still adding to the stress of the unknown.
