Welcome and congrats everyone,

Lulubear- I haven’t told my almost 5 yo either. I think we’ll wait till 12 week scan to tell her.

Hi Everyone! Im 6w and have also been waiting for this group to open. I have a 2 year old girl. I'm feeling more anxious than with my first pregnancy. I had a bit of a traumatic experience (moreso with the way my ob/midwives spoke to me/handled my labour and recovery). Am very confused whether I should go private again or try public and just a bit fearful how this birth will go.
Hoping to work through my feelings over the next 8 months and feel confident again.

I'm feeling OK physically at the moment, apart from tiredness and a few waves of nausea. I was lucky to not have morning sickness with my first pregnancy, and hoping it's the same this time

Glad to be part of this group and hearing more from you all :)

Lulubear, same haha. I got my positive two weeks ago and have been waiting for the thread to start :)

When are people’s scans/first appts? I see my ob in 8 days. Hoping that with ease some nerves 😅

@DK3000 I’m not sure if we will wait until 16-20 weeks. I have such a high risk of miscarriage at any point I’m so worried it will happen and I’ll have to explain it to her. She’s beyond excited though!

My dating scan is tomorrow and then my doctors appointment is the 5th July.

I’m nervous for tomorrow as I keep having dreams that I’m having twins and keep worrying about the what if’s. I will probably end up being a high risk pregnancy 😔

Lulubear I am also worried I’m having twins! Just a feeling, DD 4 keeps telling me there’s 2 in there!!

Have my drs appt tomorrow to confirm and he’ll likely do a scan? I don’t remember how it works too long ago

Hi everyone, I had my first lot of bloods done on a Wednesday hcg was 4600 so my dr was quite happy. Have booked my dating scan for Friday. Should be 7+6 but we shall see.

We haven’t told our other kids yet. I think I’ll wait till 12 weeks.

I think we have the same DD? 8th Feb? Well I’ll know tomorrow the exact date but off LMP that’s my DD.

My doctor wasn’t worried about my bloods - I was only worried because I wanted to confirm my immunity for certain things due to my job.

I'm a bit jealous of all of you about to have your dating scans. I'm only just 5 weeks...

Does anyone else not having many symptoms? I just stalked my old DIG for DS to see what my symptoms were back then and I was bloated heaps, had headaches, felt super tired and exhausted... Now I only have sore boobs and every now and then I've got a bit of a dizzy spell. I might be tired but we're in Europe at the moment and I'm still kinda jet lagged and we're at my mum's so she's doing all the hard work with DS, which means I'm pretty chilled. I just feel so normal!

I haven't had the best track record - a MC at 6 weeks before DS and now 2 chemicals since September. I'm also pretty old, which doesn't help me worrying..

I have exactly the same symptoms as you! (and I'm 5 weeks tomorrow too) Just the sore boobs and slight dizziness. I mean, I *could* say a bit of bloating and tiredness at a stretch... but really, that's probably no different to any other time! :D

Im the same no symptoms other than sore boobs, I could pretend to be tired so my do would do everything but really I’m fine. I’m 5+3 which I think with DD everything started around 7 weeks so I’m frantically cooking incase I get sick again

#36 newseason

Posted 23 June 2019 - 07:16 PM

Not many symptoms here either. I’m 5+3. Pretty tired and hungry. Boobs a little bit sore. That’s about it :)

We do have the same due date at this stage. I’m rather skeptical. Both my previous pregnancies I ended up a week off.

As for symptoms I’ve started feeling quite nauseous. My doctor prescribed me Ondansatron which has helped. I’m also really tired. I’ve had a nap the last couple of days which I never do.

#39 lulubear

Posted 23 June 2019 - 08:37 PM

I’m nauseous, bloated and tired. My boobs cannot be touched.

No headaches yet. With my first I had 3 migraines one after the other (they would last 6-8hrs) Wednesday, Thursday and Friday when I was 8w pregnant. Crossing everything that that doesn’t happen again!

Oh and my lovely sense of smell is back too. Woo! 🙄

I was due 9.12.14 with the daughter and she arrived 16.11.14 but we weren’t trying and there was very irregular periods leading up so who knows whether dates were wrong. She also measured 2w ahead from 16w.

I should also mention, she didn’t come out preterm (she was born at 36.6w) and weighed 3.9kgs...

Hi all!
I'm only 4weeks and 4 days so pretty fresh. Due date is looking like 28th Feb, but I'm sure I'll go over.
I have three sons under the age of 7. We've been trying for this bub for about 7 months.
Looking forward to starting this journey with you all. 😊

Anyone else’s mind boggling at the thought of choosing a new car seat?

I’ll be replacing 2 (DD is due for an upgrade) and woah is my mind all over the place 0-4years, 0-8years, 6m-8years, capsules!!! So many options.

For the ladies with other children has anyone used a 0-8years seat?

I will just be buying one for the baby. I’ll be getting a capsule. It was a lifesaver when I had my second so I’ll definitely do that again. My daughter and son are in Infasecure Emerges. They last till 8 but entry is around 2 I believe. My son who is 7 in Dec has nearly outgrown it but he is a big boy. My daughter will likely get to 8 in it. We have a large 4x4 and a large sedan so I don’t need to worry about space and what seats will fit. I’m a car seat hoarder so I actually have an Infasecure Quattro for when the baby outgrows the capsule already.

I bought an 0-8 seat with our daughter and she outgrew it at 2.5 🙄 apparently I make tall babies.

But I’m with you; I have no idea what I want. I don’t want a capsule though as I find them awkward to carry.

Newseason, sorry totally stuffed my reply haha. Not use to forums! Feeling all good here. I don't get many symptoms, I just feel seedy around lunch time and that's about it. Haven't told my three little men yet, will wait until after 12 weeks as we've previously had a loss and we don't want them experiencing any upset. 😊
How old are your boys?

Last pregnancy I experienced that around 7 weeks - I had to have an internal ultrasound but everything was fine! The bleeding was only for 1 day though and not super heavy... they couldn't see much with the ultrasound though - barely a sac.

Hope you hear positive news soon!!

Fingers crossed everything is OK. I started spotting yesterday and last night it was like a normal period and I did a test this morning and it's negative. So mine wasn't sticky this time. I really hope yours is xxxx
