Thanks Sandra! Who's joining me here? I got my bfp 4 days ago following a very early mc last month. I didn't get my period so due date is a bit unknown at this stage. I suspect early May. I have a 15mo ds and had an early mc prior to him so this is my 4th pregnancy. Last month my tests never got darker so I was suspicious from early on that something wasn't right.. This time they seem to be progressing well so have everything crossed. Look forward to meeting you!

Congrats loulou. I went to the docs today to get bloods done to confirm but I've had 2 +VE HPT FRER. I'm excited and shocked and then also a little anxious as my 1st pregnancy before my DD only got to 6 weeks. Hoping for lots more people to join with their positives 😊

Hehe it's very unusual to get 8 days into possibe may due dates and not have many join here . I guess it's hard to join in chats if you're worried about loss, maybe as the weeks go on we'll get some more people in here to chat to hehe

Hi girls, got my bfp yesterday for our first. Still very early days as I’ve just missed my period by two days, so here’s hoping it sticks.

Hi ladies!
I'm going to be joining you here after finally confirming my pregnancy with bloods yesterday! This is my third pregnancy - missed miscarriage first time, my son the second and now this.
We've had to undergo fertility treatment to get here so we're understandably very anxious, especially as we've had a previous loss. We're trying hard to stay positive and just enjoy the moment as it's outside of our control anyway!
I won't know exact EDD until a scan in 3 weeks, but I'm guessing 11/5

Hi ladies,

I guess I might be joining in here. I am still in shock, I took a HPT expecting a negative and AF to follow, but the positive line came up super strong immediately. So here I am. I have a 15yo and a nearly 3yo. We weren't planning, but weren't stopping either. So here we go I guess!

Joining in for now, I got my BFP a week or so ago had a early MC last cycle so just waiting to see if this one sticks,

Not sure if i below in the May group as I’m not sure of my due date could be last of April or first few days in May.

2nd child for me, 4th pregnancy.

I know how you feel ausfarmerswife. Hoping we're not unlucky enough to have two misses in a row. I've sent you a pm

Hi everyone,

I'm tentatively joining in. First month trying for number 1- estimate due date ~5-10 May.

I had (very light) bleeding/spotting for a week around implantation/period time with a low HCG level at early 4 wks (93), so the doctor said it was a threatened miscarriage. I have a short luteal phase so wondered if the HCG was low as it would have been only ~1.5 weeks since implantation. The repeat HCG testing 5 days later (end of 4 wks) had gone up 10-fold (976) so the doctor is now happy that things *may* be on track. I'm booked in for a dating scan in a few weeks (7 wk, 2 d).

How is everyone feeling? Any symptoms yet? I currently have a very overfull plate with work, so I am hoping that the morning sickness will be ok :(

Hey muffiny. Welcome! I've sent you a pm. I just have very sore boobs, decreased appetite and mild nausea despite being medicated.

Hey ausfarmerswife, we'll claim you as a may member even if you are late April 😊 have everything cros2for a nice sticky bean for you.
Hi muffin, I would have said that 93 at 4 weeks is actually very within normal range, glad that it's doubling nicely. I was really nauseous a couple days ago but now I'm just tired and irritable.
