No butterflies yet, but that's so exciting! The weird little fluttering was so lovely. Yay!

I can’t wait to feel little flutters, that’s when it starts to feel real for me! 8+2 here so hopefully not too long now. I felt my daughter at 12 weeks.

Hi All,

Sorry have been MIA for a bit. Not much to talk about when I am laying at home sick all day lol.

I am 7.5wks now and morning sickness has well and truly hit. Not as bad as the HG with my second but still awful.

And to top it off, I have a shocking cough at the moment and it is triggering the morning sickness.

Yay for hearing a heartbeat doglover.

Had my scan this afternoon and they said it looked like I was less than 6 weeks :( which contradicts the dating test that I did last week.im so confused and trying not to worry.
Sonographer was lovely and reassuring, but I cant help but worry :( LMP puts me at 7w6d.
They just said to go back for a scan next week but I'm still worried.

onetrick - hopefully you just ovulated later than you thought and next week the scan will show a lovely little heartbeat for you. It is so nervewracking in these early weeks waiting to see what is happening. Good luck

Jasperaliyana2729 - the Facebook group is because a lot of people feel more comfortable talking in a private group as opposed to the public forum here. And it can also be easier to get to know people when using real names rather than usernames.

Have had some bleeding this afternoon. Reasonably heavy. Haven’t had this in my previous pregnancy so I’m not feeling very positive.
Have an apt with my GP next week and I don’t think there is much point trying to get an earlier apt given that there isn’t much they would be able to do anyway.

Feeling a bit all over the place at the moment. Would be 6 weeks tomorrow.

I'm sorry honey xx

There is always a chance that it is just one of those things... best of luck and sticky vibes to you XXX

Hi ladies!

I'm due on March 26, just had a dating ultrasound to confirm yesterday. We've had quite a few losses at varying stages, so I held off on joining any groups until we at least saw a heartbeat.

I have a 13 month old daughter, and having morning sickness while trying to look after her is exhausting!

Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Congratulations veronicamars
Hope everything is smooth from here on!

Yes can relate, nausea + 2 baby’s OMG!!!

Had my scan on Saturday all good strong heartbeat pushed dates back as expected so now 29/3. My morning sickness has ramped up and just so exhausted making looking after the kids and getting anything done almost impossible!

Sorry, I have been missing in action from here. I hate using EB on my phone so haven't been on since I have been off work sick.

Hope everyone here is going well.

I'm finally back at work after nearly 2 weeks off and and an overnight hospital visit for fluids.

Apart from that everything is going well.

Hey all! Havent been on the forum for a long time but need to vent and find hopefully some comfort.
So I am 13w 3days. NIPT was totally fine and had my anatomy scan last week.
All looked good until the NT measurement which was 5mm. Max should be 3. Had to have a CVS straight away and the wait is horrible. So stressed out. My OB is telling me not to worry as nothing else appears to be an issue but I also had a MC last pregnancy. Anyways hope everyone else is going well.

#165 Jasperaliyana2729

Hope everything is going ok paige5

I'm 14 3 days. Everything seems to be good and the morning sickness has eased! Super happy!!

#166 Paige5

Still waiting on results. Saw OB today though and she doesnt seem concerned.
Good to hear! Are you finding out what you are having??

Hi ladies,

I've been MIA for a while, but just wanted to let you know I've just had my 12 week nuchal ultrasound and everything is looking good. I don't use other social media, so won't be joining you there, but wish you all the very best for the rest of your pregnancies and beyond!

#168 loshto

Hi Ladies

Am also joining you here for the first time. I always discover my pregnancies quite late as usual hehe. So this is my 3rd preg and i am now 10+6 today. My EDD is 31st March.

Would also love to join the facebook thingy as i have a lot of questions as this is my first preggie in Aussie here so not sure how things are done here. The other ones were in NZ.

#169 Jasperaliyana2729

Posted 09 September 2019 - 06:49 PM

Paige5, I don't want to as I have 1 boy 1 girl so anything is a + but DP wants to 😡 guess we will see in 3 weeks time lol

#170 Jasperaliyana2729

Posted 09 September 2019 - 06:50 PM

Camembear I don't use other social media either. Bummer this has quieted down.
Does anyone know any other online forums that actually stay active?

#171 Paige5

Posted 10 September 2019 - 08:41 PM

1 of each is good for a follow up surprise.
I still javent got results back but I called and tomorrow arvo I'll get the call. It's been a long 2 weeks. Yeah I have no idea what the facebook group is but Feb added me instead.

#172 Jasperaliyana2729

Posted 11 September 2019 - 11:13 PM

That's what I thought!!
There's nothing worse then having to wait so long for something so important!!
Feb in the EB?

12 weeks today! Still quite sick and relying on ondansetron. Slowly getting more energy but seems to be one good day and so I’ll do too much and then one day of complete uselessness can barely function. Hard with 3 kids at home, actually looking forward to school holidays as the eldest will help keep the littles entertained, they all are playing so nicely mostly at the moment so that’s good.
My 12 week scan this week so looking forward to seeing Bub.
Really worried about names OH hates all my suggestions but has nothing to offer. We have a middle name for boy or girl though so there is that at least!

#174 Veryclucky

Posted 04 October 2019 - 07:36 PM

How is everyone going in here? I’m nearly 16wks now and getting excited about the 19wk ultrasound as I can’t wait to see the3D images.

The kids are starting to talk more about their baby sibling so that is exciting too.

Symptom wise I am still in the death zone of hyperemesis but otherwise everything is good

#175 Jasperaliyana2729

I am nearly 20 weeks and have my ultrasound today so very very excited!
Hope you are all doing well
