Hi everyone!

I just got my first BFP - 4 weeks and 2 days puts me at 12th June as Due Date!

This is our first and first official month of trying so I’m in a bit of shock at the moment. :)

Hi Lilpuddin,

Sorry to hear you have bad sickness, but at least you know the right things are going on in there! How long til your first scan?

I'm only 4+4 , my main symptoms are breast tenderness, needing to go to the bathroom a lot, and a bit tired.

Another 2 and a half weeks until my 7 week scan so just aiming for each milestone at the moment because the scan seems so far away.

Hi everyone

I got a BFP this morning which I am nervous and happy about!

It is my second pregnancy. We fell pregnant the first time we tried much to our surprise, and my due date was 11 May 2019. Unfortunately i miscarried on 10 Sept at 5 + 2. We decided to try again as soon as we were able to - I ovulated two weeks later on 24 Sept according to ovulation tests and it seems that our efforts around that date were successful!

Since i didn't have a period between miscarrying and conceiving again, I'm not so sure of my due date. I've read a lot online that says some Doctors will count your miscarriage as a period. So if using 10 Sept as the period date, that gives me a due date of 17 June 2019 (my birthday!) and means I am 3 + 6. Does anyone know if that is the right way to calculate things, or i am better off requesting a dating scan?

My period wasn't due until Monday, but I (crazy lady) have been doing pregnancy tests for the last four days...I knew it was too early but still had hope. Convinced myself last night that I wasn't pregnant and so it was really lovely to get the positive test. On our first pregnancy I didn't get a BFP until three days after my period was due.

Really hoping that this pregnancy progresses as normal and that I can get to know everyone here <3

Fingerscrossed, that’s the only thing getting me through at the sickness at the moment! My scan is in 12 days so I will be 7+2 which is exciting 😊 2 and a half weeks until your scan must feel like a lifetime, I hope it goes by quickly and smoothly for you!

Congrats on your BFP and welcome JCH86! If I were in your situation, I would request a dating scan to know what’s going on in there and I guess also for some peace of mind, but from what you’ve described it sounds like you’ve calculated correctly anyway 😊

Hey everyone,

I am super tentatively saying hi. This is pregnancy number 6 (OMG!) for me and hopefully number 4 baby earth side. Unfortunately we lost a massive surprise baby earlier this year at almost 12 weeks so I am pretty anxious this time around. This was also a total surprise but we are hoping this little bean sticks around. Trying to keep busy with my other 3 while this LONG 12 weeks passes.

Mama_j- I will be getting the harmony. I had it with the last two babes and given i am a fair bit older now than i was with my firstborn i am keen to know all is ok. Finding out the sex is an added bonus too.

Wishing everyone an uneventful 9 months.

Forgot to add my period wasn't due until Tuesday just gone but i was getting strong BFP since last Friday. So guessing i am 4.2ish now.
xx

Oh good to know I wont be the only one getting it!
The gender is a bonus here too, our youngest has a genetic condition and it presents differently in girls to boys, so we are advised to find out gender as early as possible through Harmony and we can monitor closely after that with Ultrasounds :)

4+6 here now and I have the occasional waves of nausea but no vomiting. Had cracking headaches last week that seem to have settled too! The cramping seems to be slowly easing as well... Hoping it is all good signs!

Hoping everyone else is feeling well!

J

Hi ladies,
Congrats to you all!
I originally posted in the May DIG with textbook dates putting me due on the 29th but I’m fairly certain I’ll be closer to due around 2nd June.
I had a scan last Wednesday due to a small bleed. They estimated I was 6 weeks but couldn’t see much so I think my dates are more accurate. Waiting til the 19th to get another scan, although I might pull it forward to the 17th. So I’m guessing I’m about 6 weeks today.
Looking forward to sharing the journey with you all ☺️

Lilpuddin-I’ve been sick aaaall day every day from about a week ago. Or at least it feels like a week. Very grateful but blerch. And every smell is disgustingly strong right now!

Welcome to all the newbies :)

I'm 5 weeks 2 days today and still have very few symptoms. I actually took and FRER today just to make sure I'm still pregnant... It was a pretty strong positive! I'm lucky so far, but it has me worried.

I'm feeling fine so have been keeping up with my current exercise routine, but toning it down a fair bit. I normally do F45 so I'm using lighter weights, avoiding the jumping and making sure I don't get too hot or out of breath.

What is everyone else doing? I'm worried I might be overdoing it, but everything I have read said if you did it before getting pregnant it should be ok.

#33 FingersCrossed123

Posted 08 October 2018 - 02:32 PM

Hi Babyclicks

Don't worry I feel the same as you, relatively few symptoms, still 2 weeks and 2 days until my scan and no way to know what's going on in the meantime!

I'm doing my usual routine - walking, pilates, zumba and 2 weights sessions per week. Just taking more rests and drinking more water during, and not pushing myself too much.

#34 mill85

Posted 08 October 2018 - 04:42 PM

Minimal symptoms here too- I will be 5 weeks tomorrow. Only things are getting up to wee 3-4 times a night!!, crying a bit more than usual and slight aversion to some smells. Even though i have been pregnant a fair few times i can't remember this early stage and what i am usually like.

Trying not to have a dating scan because unfortunately last time even though we had a scan around 10 weeks and everything was fine just after it wasn't- not common so don't worry anyone else! I just feel like i might stay in a denial bubble until 11/12 weeks when we get the harmony.

Hey babyclicks

I had virtually no symptoms through my 5th ish week. It’s all hit me bad the last few days though so I shoukdnt have taken it for granted lol.

I’m a personal trainer and I train many post natal ladies and have had several pregnant women too. One just finished up a few weeks ago actually!

There are modifications you will need going forward to preserve pelvic floor and if you experience any pelvic girdle pain. Your joints will also start to become more lax which puts you at higher risk of injury. Things like lunges or sprints etc are common ones that may be uncomfortable.

I still instruct classes but keep the weight a bit lighter, reduce too much up down movement as it changes blood pressure and causes dizziness (and makes me want to puke) and as we start to grow, many common core exercises will be very inappropriate.

I would check your instructor has pre and post natal qualifications and make them aware you are pregnant. They should be able to give you alternatives on the spot.
Once women we hit around 14 weeks, I don’t allow them to lie flat on their back anymore. If you are doing chest work or example, pull the bench up to incline. This will reduce the pressure of growing Bub on the main artery. I would alternatively give my ladies wall pushups instead here or even bench ones depending on the individual client.

If you feel otherwise well and baby is otherwise ok, it’s fine to continue what you are doing. Ensure you’re still getting plenty of nutrient dense food And water in and your vitamins also.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to PM me ☺️ I could ramble all day as it’s so important you are properly cared for in a fitness setting!

Thanks BabyK32B, that is great advice!  I'll have a chat to my trainer tomorrow before class.  I was planning to do it this morning,  but my body had other ideas. I was too tired to get out of bed that early!

HI everyone

Today I am 5 weeks! It feels like a lifetime. 2 weeks and 1 day until my scan. just counting the week milestones in the meantime. :)

Hi everyone,

I hope you’re all doing well. And thanks for all the info on exercising. I’ve been keeping up a slightly reduced routine and am pleased to hear that’s the right approach.

I’m having a weird day. Had quite a lot of cramping overnight and woke up to a bit of spotting, which made me really anxious. I called the nurses and they got me to come in for another blood test to make sure that hCG and progesterone are doing what they’re meant to.

Doesn’t help that my partner is away at the moment. Am really feeling a bit sad and scared about it. Guess I’ll know more by the end of the day, but it’s not a nice feeling. For anyone else going through the weird symptoms, I warn you that google is both your best friend and worst enemy.

Congrats on five weeks, Fingerscrossed!

xx

Hi Sweetpea, sorry to hear you are having spotting and cramping. How far along are you?

It can just be the bub settling in, but of course we all fear the worst.

It's good you have your clinic to support you and do blood tests and scans etc if necessary.

Is there anyone you know who you feel comfortable talking to about it while your partner is away? I wasn't going to tell anyone but ended up telling 2 of my friends just for the support as the first trimester is difficult anyway, and if something does go wrong you will have some additional support.

Look after yourself. xxx

#40 sweetpea8

Posted 09 October 2018 - 01:49 PM

Thanks Fingerscrossed. I’m 5w2d today. They didn’t seem too stressed out at the clinic, but I guess they’re kind of trained to not seem stressed out.

I’ve told a few friends, so will have support. Unfortunately all my friends are the super fertile types who haven’t experienced miscarriage, so I’m still kind of a novelty for them.

I’m hanging out for those blood results, I’ll tell you what!

Thanks again. xx

Okay. Thought I should update here given the panicky message earlier. Results are back everything looks very good. hCG is 6293 and progesterone is also fine. Nurse says cramping and bleeding totally fine and pretty normal for this stage. 😬😳🤷🏼‍♀️

Thanks for the supportive message, fingers. xx

Great news Sweetpea! Fingers crossed everything keeps going well for you. We are almost due date buddies - I'm 5 weeks 3 days today. When are you going for your first scan?

#43 JCH86

Posted 09 October 2018 - 03:14 PM

Great that you got some reassuring news Sweetpea ❤️

I am 4+1 today.  Did another pregnancy test yesterday as I was feeling paranoid! I’ve booked my initial Dr appt for the 29th when I am 7 weeks and will ask to book in for a dating scan then. I feel anxious and nervous that something will go wrong with this pregnancy too, not a great feeling!
I wish I could fast forward to the 12 week mark so I could feel a little more confident.

Is anyone else planning on gettting the Harmony test done?

In the week leading up to my BFP, I had every symptom under the sun, , things have cooled off in the last few days (hence my paranoia) until today - have been feeling nauseous on and off But nothing too horrific. I’m also horribly bloated which is gross. I haven’t been to ;45 for a week but planning to go tomorrow as I’d like to maintain an exercise regime for as long as possible.

Hey JCH86!
I'm 35 and in Newcastle NSW. We have 2 older boys (6 & 9).
I'll be doing the harmony test at 10 weeks.
I wondered, if something has happened between your dating scan (7 weeks for me) and your harmony, what would the harmony test results say??
I'd hate to see a bub at 7 weeks, get the test results and then go for our 12 week scan and something has happened in the meantime :(

Good news Sweetpea! Hope you have been able to relax a bit more today.

JCH86- I think it is totally normal after a loss to feel extra cautious. After we lost our daughter and i got pregnant with my son i pretty much thought something would happen the whole pregnancy- i didn't even buy him anything. Not a healthy way to be but just wanted to explain that worrying something may happen doesn't mean it will. I try to just get through each day at a time and take it like that. Sometimes it is even hour by hour. We are all in this together and feel free to PM me anytime x

mama_j- Where i get the harmony you meet with the genetic counselor then if you haven;t had an U/S in the past 2 weeks they will scan you again before drawing blood. Otherwise you could be paying $400-500 for nothing.

Oops and I am 33 and from Melbourne. We have an 8/6 and almost 3 year old.

Mill85 that’s how it should be! Ours is just from our local pathology place through according to my Gp?

#49 FingersCrossed123

Posted 10 October 2018 - 11:29 AM

Glad everything was ok sweetpea!

jch- my symptoms have come off a bit too, less bloated. Probably just our bodies getting used to the hormones.

I took a clearblue digital and it's moved up to 2-3 weeks. The only thing I have to check on until my scan! I'll check again next week to make sure its gone up to 3+.

I'll be having the harmony test too, my first scan is 7 weeks at the fertility specialist, then OB appointment + scan is at 9 weeks, so that should be fine for then having Harmony at 10 weeks.

I also booked into the hospital as I read online sometimes the hospital can get booked out too? I just did it online and they confirmed my booking straight away, so pretty straightforward. No cost or anything.

ETA - is anyone else having baby brain already? I am forgetting words for things, getting people confused with each other, asking for leave in the wrong month, feel like I am losing it!

Hi ladies,

Hope everyone is travelling well!

I’m 30 and live in Perth, WA. This is baby #3. DS is 6 and DD will be 5 in December. I go through waves of excitement and then feeling overwhelmed at having 3 kids. One day it seems really exciting and the next I’m really anxious about going through the newborn stage again, losing sleep, recovery, PND. I’m finding I am feeling very self concious about my weight and appearance this time around as we run our own fitness and martial arts business, so feel there’s a little pressure to still look fit and healthy when all I want to do is spew up and be fat haha.

Fingerscrossed - I’m surprised at how early preggo brain has kicked in. The other day I was making dinner and just didn’t think when stirring the pasta and shoved my fingers into boiling water.
Last night, hubby tells me the chicken I cooked was upside down. It didn’t occur to me that was the reason why it looked funny in the pan.
God help me.
