I’m ok, but I’m out had significant bleeding, cramps  & passing tissue since yesterday dr was pretty sure I was misscarrying which is ok, will have some more blood on Tuesday and confirm.

Hopefully I’ll join Due in March. I don’t seem to have an issue getting pregnant. I’ve got 1 DD this is my first MC.

Good luck ladies xx

Hi everyone, I had my dating scan today. As I suspected instead of being 7w4d I’m 6w0d so I need to go back in 2 weeks. Baby had a heartbeat though that she said only just started so was a bit slow at 115bpm

How’s everyone else going? My nausea has hit a high and I’m really struggling to get through each day now.

Good sign that you saw the heartbeat Luna! Hopefully the next 2 weeks go fast so you can have some reassurance from the next scan.

I just had my dating scan today- measuring 7+2 which is 1 day extra than I thought and heartbeat was normal. I feel a sense of relief now knowing that there is actually a baby in there and all looks good so far!

Symptoms are okay- I feel quite nauseous for most of the day, but find if I eat regularly it’s managable. Other than that just have sore boobs still.

Hope everyone else is going well!

I’m really nauseous and struggle most days. Sense of smell is amazing again and I am getting really bad headaches (not migraines thankfully!) My boobs are super sore still. All I want is chocolate, orange juice and fast food chips 🤦‍♀️

I’m 8w tomorrow or 8w3d based on scan.

Have a drs appointment next Friday at 10am.

I had my dating scan as I have some spotting ( have always had it with my pregnancies but it makes me so anxious ). I thought I was 6w3 d based on LMP but measured 6w0d and hr of 119. Hoping that’s ok . With my other two they had hr’s Of around 140 by 6w5 d .

So exciting for all of you who saw a heartbeat already. I still don't feel pregnant. Other than sore boobs, i have no symptons.... won't have a scan for at least another week when we're back in Australia

#66 msjme

Oh you must be dying for a scan terfl  ! I don’t have many symptoms either except for fatigue and some nausea in the morning .

Have any of you told people? I can’t seem to stop letting it slip - hubby would kill me if he knew!

So far I've only told 2 of my 3 siblings and my best friend! They're mainly the ones who knew we were TTC so asked directly.

So that leaves both sets of parents and hubby's siblings still to tell - but they all live overseas (as are my parents atm too with my other sibling). Hubby has told friends at work but he's waiting till I feel comfortable till we tell his family.

I think I'll wait a little longer tbh... I'm not fussed on which week - but I think it'll just be a time we happen to get a group of them on skype and catch them at a good time.

These last 2 days I've started to feel the nausea come on which even though is mild I just feel really slows me down :(

We have told our mums and brothers. I also told my best friend because I couldn’t keep my mouth shut. Still haven’t told our kids. We are a really close family so the people we have told would be ridiculously supportive and understanding if something were to happen.

I’ve told 3 friends. Once I’ve seen a heartbeat (hoping I will on Monday) then I’ll tell mum. She’s not s great secret keeper so I want to know there’s a good chance of it sticking before I tell her ;)

#71 Terfl

Posted 30 June 2019 - 12:25 AM

I have told my mum but only because she asked me directly if we wanted another but told her to not mention it again as it was still so early. I also told 3 of my besties in overseas who knew I was trying and got suspicious that i wasn't drinking.
My boobs are less sore today but i felt a bit nauseous today and had a mild crampy feeling. Trying not to freak out about the lack of boob pain as i remember it being on and off with DS

I have told one good friend who lives overseas . We communicate every day about everything so it felt weird not to tell her . Have told one friend from one of my old essential baby due in groups , as we shared both our first and second pregnancies together both times around so it felt weird not telling her and she is so supportive . My sister told me she was 10 weeks on Thursday and it was so hard not to mention anything ! I’ve had a dating scan which showed me 6w instead of 6w3 d and a heart rate of 119 so I’m not sure if that good or bad or what ! I know the heart rate increases daily so I’m in 6w instead of 6w3d then I guess 119 is ok for that early on 🤷🏽‍♀️

Msjme, with DS I had a scan at 6 weeks exactly and it was 114. 119 sounds perfectly normal

Morning sickness has kicked in and I’m not coping very well with a 9 month old to look after 😩 I’ve started zofran but I’ve also got a pretty nasty head cold so it’s all bouncing off each other. How’s everyone else coping?

#75 MessyJ

Posted 03 July 2019 - 08:18 PM

Yeah my nausea is horrible - I don't remember really having it with my first! It's not bad enough I've actually vomited, but all day on and off I just feel queasy and bloated and tired! :sick: :yawn:

I'm learning to manage it a bit with food, but I'm already feeling some food aversions and cravings too so I just hope it doesn't get any worse than this over the next few weeks!
