I'm 5 weeks 3 days and feel like rubbish today!

Battled through and got a load of stuff done and then then groceries.

How are you feeling?

I'm going for a blood test tomorrow to check everything.

How are you going?

Oh that’s not good, I’m sorry to hear you’re feeling crappy :(

i’m going okay, i haven’t had any morning sickness yet thankfully, I was so sick with DD who is 15 months, i’m wondering when it’s going to kick in! Other than that I’m just constantly exhausted, I could sleep all day!
I’m heading back to the doctors tomorrow to get the results of my blood tests :)

Hi, MummaR and Cough!

I got a faint BFP on Saturday at 8DPO and it’s been getting darker each day, so thought I’d jump in. I was thinking of waiting a bit longer after an early loss/CP last month, but figure that each little bean deserves to be acknowledged if even it’s only for a short time. I had a bad feeling last month, but no feeling either way this time, so hopefully I’ll get to stay around!

I hope you’re both going okay, xo.

Welcome and congrats on your BFP Layla25!

I have been following your journey in the TTC board but haven’t been able to comment as I hadn’t validated my account properly, I’m sorry for your previous loss but hope this bub is a sticky one for you and you have a carefree 9 months ahead! ❤️

Hi ladies

Good luck on this adventure! I am due 4th April with our first. We are so excited but after having a m/c at 6 weeks in April this year it's hard not to be equally anxious/nervous as well. Look forward to sharing the journey with you all :)

Take care x

Hi Everyone,

Only discovered I was pregnant last night when I took a test just in case as had been feeling nauseous, took a second one just to be sure, all 10 minutes before I had to leave for my netball game, probably not great timing but I was sure it would be negative..To say I was distracted during that game is an understatement!

Had blood test this morning and going to get results tonight.

According to the app I have been using to track my period I'm about 4.5 weeks and due 11th Aprilish, although will see what doctor says and is still very early.

Is my first (although I have a stepdaughter whos just about to turn 4) and I am sooooo excited. Ability to concentrate on work today is almost non existent!

Look forward to sharing the journey with you all.

Congratulations Kat, how exciting!
I’m sure it’s the best kind of distraction, hope the nausea eases for you soon! xx

Hi everyone! I should be 5 weeks 3 days today. Was at a fertility clinic so had all my bloods checked a week ago and it was all looking good. I have my first ultrasound in about 2 weeks. I am cramping a bit which I have done some research and is probably normal but still makes me nervous

#19 Kattle

Posted 07 August 2018 - 12:50 PM

Thanks MummaR :-)

Same BlueMelon! I thought I was getting my period for last few days and was surprised when nothing, then looked it up last night post positive test and seems to be normal.

#20 *cough*

Posted 07 August 2018 - 01:21 PM

Hi Kat and Bluemelon!

BM - we are the same gestation :)

Kat - hopefully you can get some work done today. It's very distracting indeed.

I went and got a blood test today and they did about 4 million other tests as well as the HCG. Fingers crossed all is okay.

#21 Layla25

Posted 07 August 2018 - 05:32 PM

Welcome, Kat and BlueMelon! Congratulations :)

I hope all your results come back as perfect, Cough. Xo.

Hi lovely ladies...

This is the start of a crazy new adventure for us all!!

This will be my 4th child 😳

I have a 3, 6 and 7 year and am a little nervous about how I'll cope with this not so planned pregnancy, but anything is possible I suppose!

Big congratulations on your truly happy news! It takes a whole to get used to, doesn't it?!

#23 Sophia....

Posted 07 August 2018 - 09:22 PM

P.s Kat, we are both due on April 11

#24 Natalie2109

Posted 07 August 2018 - 09:52 PM

Hi all,

I’m due April 7th and this is my first. First scan is next week - I’ve got an overseas trip booked and I’ll be 7 weeks when we leave which is a bit nerve racking! I’m loving this forum for us all to chat though!

Welcome, Sophia and Natalie! Congratulations :)
