Hi MissC86 and purplebutterflies :)

400, that holiday sounds horrific. I feel like crying for you! We are on holiday as well at the moment. But we are with my parents and my sis/BIL so there are lots of adults to keep my toddler entertained. And no gastro thank god! I am taking the elevit morning sickness tablets around the clock which seems to be helping with my morning sickness. Down to only a couple of vomits a week and the nausea is not so acute.

I got my harmony results back! Low risk for the genetic conditions which is the important thing. But also found out we are having another girl 😍 My husband was a little disappointed as he was hoping for a boy. But sisters will be so nice and we can save heaps of money on clothes 🙊

Congrats Mackenzie! So nice to have a good result and a little sister 😊
I was convinced I was having another boy but since I have been so much sicker this time around I have my suspicions of a girl this time! I still have another few weeks wait to get through, it’s suspenseful!

I’ve managed to get the MS mostly under control now. I still have my moments though.

Welcome dgrag! Sorry to hear you are suffering so badly. It’s a nasty surprise to have it worse second time around, hey! Hopefully it will ease off as you get into the second trimester. x

Hi All,
I'm brand new to all this, my fiance and I have recently found out we're expecting our first baby with EDD 27/12/19.
This was totally unexpected, I have pcos and had resigned myself to never having a child.
We've had a scan, which has made it feel all the more real!!
Not sure what to expect, I'm nervous and excited, and a little anxious as I'm turning 40 this month and really thought my time had passed.
Looking forward to chatting with you all and learning from you!

Congratulations Becanne05. That’s so exciting for you. The scans definitely make it feel more real. How are you coping with the pregnancy symptoms?

Thanks Mackenzie18 😊
I've been nauseous and dry retching since week 7, then had a cold this week which masked the nausea! Now that's clearing I'm straight back into it, if I have regular small amounts of foods it seems to ease thank goodness!

Hi lovely ladies.
I'm completely new to this site so not sure where to start or what to say, but this seemed like a good spot.
I'm due Dec 11th with my first.
Very excited and very tired.

Hi misspickle, welcome and congrats!

It’s very quiet around here as everyone has moved on to the FB group- something I am not privy to since I’m one of those non-FBers. I’m sure if you want to join then someone might PM you once they see your post.

Anyway, I’m around and feel you on the exhaustion front!

How exciting to be having your first, I’m on number 2 and this is way harder than I remember it being!
