Hi everyone!

Hope to see more people joining us in the forum soon :)

How are you feeling physically/mentally? I’m ok physically, a little nervous about how things will pan out after a 2nd trimester loss in August just past. Hopefully with careful monitoring we can avoid the same issue happening too soon again.

That’s completely understandable your feeling that way. Have you had a scan yet?

I’m feeling ok, I’m freaking about when my medical team find out as I was supposed to be having major surgery when I finished breastfeeding. I wasn’t supposed to I’ve babies until it was done.

Also mildly stressing wondering how hectic 3 under 3.3 will be.

Oh dear, that does sound complicated.

No, nothing yet. I saw my GP last Friday (he was my OB for my first pregnancy, but no longer delivering babies) & he referred me on to an OBGYN. I have to wait until the 8/1 before the practice reopens after the holidays to see about getting in with her. It’s still reasonably early & I don’t think any complications I have previously experienced will be an issue in the next few weeks. It just feels like it takes forever!! Haha

I’m starting to feel like no one is coming to join us . I know there were lots that joined July because August didn’t open for ages.

Hi I’m tentatively joining, I got my BFP a month ago but digital tests told me the pregnancy wasn’t progressing ... went for a scan today thinking I’d get the bad news but nope there was a HB!
Anyway things are still a bit uncertain as my dates are nearly a week out from the scans but I’m now feeling a bit better about it all. I’m unsure on EDD at this stage, LMP, when I actually O’d and today’s scan all give me different dates but it should be mid August if things continue to progress.

Hey all. I’m due Aug 5th with my third. An unexpected pregnancy that I still haven’t got my head around. Made a little harder because the hyperemesis has already set in... ☹️
I’m looking forward to hearing others excitement and hoping I pick up a bit of it along the way!

#8 ItIsComplicated

ChilliDog- my EDD changed from LMP to dating scan then changed again at 12 week scan  with both previous pregnancies.

I’m expecting my EDD to change at dating scan as I was only on my second cycle since DD2. So I’m not 100% on cycle length.

Islander- this is also our 3rd and we are still both in shock! The girls took along tie to conceive so this was quite the surprise. Very happy but shocked/anxious/nervous especially about 3 so close together.

3rd child and unplanned here as well ... shock is an understatement.

Hello everyone.
I am due 22nd August with my miracle baby. We had it confirmed with bloods on Friday 21st December.  HCG was 1879.  We had a u/s on Thursday 3rd 7w0d.  Length was 6.7mm and Hb was 118.  I have been told so far that everything is as expected and going well.  It is hard not to worry however.  This is total miracle suprise after TTC since 2014 and numerous AC procedures and 4 rounds of unsuccessful IVF.  We have just been focusing on health and weight etc before planning to go to the bulk billing IVF as we have used all our savings.
Anyway I have to call my FS office today for an appointment as they re-open today.  
I am still in shock that this happened.  I pray with every fibre of my being that it all goes well.  This is my first pregnancy ever.
Symptoms are just feeling generally exhausted, nausea on and off throughout the day (no vomiting) , sore breasts, bleeding gums.  
Anyway hope to chat more.  Good luck everyone else!!

Welcome everyone!! Glad to see some more joining here.

That may explain it @itiscomplicated. I kept coming back to see if the group had opened for a few weeks but never thought to jump into July & see what was happening then!

#13 ChilliDog

Posted 09 January 2019 - 08:54 AM

ItIsCkmplicated my other 2 are both boys aged 2 and 4 so not a big gap but we had decided we were done at 2 kids ... I’d been at hubby to get the snip for 1.5years 🥴

Congrats Laurie03, that’s wonderful news!!!

#14 Islander

Posted 10 January 2019 - 06:08 AM

Haha ChilliDog! My husband had been meaning to get the snip for ages too...

And a huge congratulations to you Laurie03. Incredible news!

Is the fb group open yet?

This is baby number 5 for me. I’m high risk after losing my youngest daughter at 35 weeks, 9 months ago.

Wishing everyone a smooth pregnancy ❤️

Hi guys, I’m 9 weeks today after repeated miscarriages. Hopefully this one can get to the end. I’m due 24th August.
So sorry to hear about your lose sushilove :(

Welcome to the group SushiLove & Coco36!

We’re a bit on the small side. About the first 1/2 of August joined the July group because this one wasn’t activated yet! Great to have a couple more.

It sounds like we’ve all had a bit of a complicated history. Fingers crossed this will be our year. Very sorry to hear about your loss SushiLove. That must have been devastating.

#18 ma.wright91

Posted 21 January 2019 - 04:55 AM

So how has everyone been? I had my first appointment with my new OBGYN finally. She’s great. We went over my history, she recommended I get a stitch put in at 14w & we’ll take it out at 37w. I also had a dating scan the same day. New due date of Sept 1, which matches perfectly with my unusual ovulation. I’m sticking around here though. If the stitch is out at 37w, there’s very little chance my cervix will hold out 3 weeks haha

Hi everyone hope you are all going well.

Had my first OB appointment last week.  All is perfect at this stage.
Going to have the Percept blood test next week as our OB recommended it.

We also would like the peace of mind as we have been through so much to get here.
Are you having anything like this done?

We have not told anyone yet we are waiting till our 13 week appointment after the scan/test results.  I don't know how I am going to last that long!

Also I hate this heat.  I feel like I am feeling it more or maybe I am being a sook.

Hello all!

Thought I would join in too. I’m due 11 August.

We used the generation NIPT. Had the bloods drawn last Wednesday and got the results yesterday (which were fine).

Our NT scan is next Friday which I can’t wait for as I’m struggling to believe a baby is actually in there - can’t see it, can’t feel it. It’s our first so I guess that might have something to do with it.

I’m dying to tell people but we have agreed to wait for all the results and to see our OB on the 7th of Feb. we have told our parents and our sisters, but that’s it.

Looking forward to sharing this experience with you all.

#21 ma.wright91

Posted 24 January 2019 - 12:01 PM

I had Percept with my previous pregnancies & was under the impression it gave the same detail as the previous scan/blood test around 12 weeks, but my new OB seems to think the combined NT testing is the way to go. I dunno. I mainly liked knowing baby’s sex early haha!!

Welcome Elkcin!! Nice to have you join us 😊

Hi All,

Looking to join in also.

My Due Date is 26/08/2019, my step mum's birthday which is awesome.

We had to go through IVF as I lost a tube to an ectopic last year and the other wasn't functioning properly so it went too.

We're very shocked that our first transfer has stuck and weren't quite expecting it to happen so soon, but we are very grateful to be in this position!!

I had my 3rd scan today and all seems to be on track. Both my Dr and Hubby saw bub moving but of course I missed it because I was too busy making sure the measurements were where they needed to be. :rolleyes:

Congrats to everyone!

Hi everyone!

I had my first scan today, and I’m further along than I thought, I was expecting to be about 8 weeks, but I’m already 11 weeks!! Due date is 13 August.

This will be number 2, I have a daughter who is 5 (6 next month) we told her she was going to be a big sister tonight and she was absolutely stoked ❤️

Looking forward to sharing this journey with you all. I joined this forum when I was due with number 1 and I became friends with an incredible bunch of mothers whom I still keep in contact with, would love if this turned out similar!

#24 ma.wright91

Posted 26 January 2019 - 03:40 PM


That’s pretty exciting news Liah - I’m sure it was a surprise to find out you were so much further along!

Yay more people joining! Welcome. Uneventful here, just morning sickness and bloating. Strangely feeling heavy, yet baby is only prune size. Wishing everyone well. 😊
