Thanks Sandra!

Hi ladies,

I got my BFP on Saturday! According to my LMP I’m due somewhere around July 8th which makes me 5w1d, however I’m BFing and have no idea when I actually ovulated.

This will be my fourth pregnancy - I have an 11DS, 8DD, and a 6mo DD.

Have booked a dating scan for the 25th.

Looking forward to sharing this journey with everyone X

Hi Almond,

Guess it’s just you and I at the moment 😁

Congrats on your pregnancy!

I found out a week ago (very early) and I am actually due on the 8th of July too so at the moment 5wks and 1 day

This is my second. I have a 4 year old

I had bloods done a couple of times and first one was only 100 at 4 weeks .. a week later it’s gone up to 2810.
No symptoms yet other then fatigue

Now just sitting tight until dating scan in a couple of weeks. My first was very small so I am expecting them to say I am not as far as I think . It happened last time and I delivered a couple of weeks early

Congrats @Talini!

Ooh same due date (for now anyway!). So exciting.

I’m expecting the same - to be put back a week or two. I’m waiting until I’m 8w to have a dating scan because with my last, I thought I was further along and they put me back and made me feel a bit like I was wasting their time. (I’m not going back to that place).

I’d love to know what my HCG is - nor sure if it was on my pathology form.

Im feeling pretty tired, but thats normal lol and have had some really mild nausea the last few days.

Did you get bad morning sickness w your first?

Hi, I’m due around July 4. Found out quite early (would have still been around 3weeks). This is my 3rd, we have a 8DS and 6DS, this one is a bit of a surprise. One night is all it takes! We are excited though stressed about practical things.

Waiting for my first scan and meeting my OB which is on the 21st. Then we will know everything is okay. Been super tired but no feeling sick yet which is great as I had severe morning/all day sickness for the whole of both my other pregnancies.

Congrats Fizzling!

I have an 8yo gap between 2 and 3. The pregnancy sucked just as much if not more than the first two, and she is the worst sleeper by far (sorry!) BUT 1000% the best decision :wub:

Good luck with you scan, keep us updated.

Woo hoo! July is open for business 😁
Hi everyone,
We're due with our ninth child on the 14th July, the same due date as our only daughter (who was born on the 12th July 13 years ago)
We are extremely excited, especially as I thought we were out this cycle & moving onto ttc cycle #5. Turns out, after having 4 cycles of 27,28 days this cycle was 36 days.
I had a brief implantation 'spot' & got a bfp the next day. I've been testing each day (serial p poas addict 😉) & love seeing the lines get darker each day.

I have our first appointment on Monday & so far feeling good, a bit of nausea & tiredness but nothing major yet. Usually it picks up around 6-7 weeks if it's going to get pronounced.

How is everyone else feeling so far?

#8 AlmondCapPls

Posted 08 November 2019 - 06:58 AM

Congrats Chethay! Wow 9! Did you always want a big family? How old are the others? I wanted four when I had my older two, then life happened (and my second was a nightmare for a good few years HAHA!) and now that I’ve got a big gap, and the big kids go to school during the day etc I can see myself having a couple more :wub:

Good luck at your appt!

Feeling good here - just tired so far.

#9 Chethay2012

Posted 08 November 2019 - 09:11 AM

AlmondCapPls yes we did. Back in our dating days we both wanted a big family, however back then we were thinking maybe 5 children (as that seemed big 😅) Then we had #5 & before he was even 48 hours old we both just knew we weren't done.
So we had #6 2.5 years later, then #7 2.7 years after that &  #8 arrived last year.
This one is the last one, DH feels ready to move on to the next stage of our lives & I can feel I'm really close to being 'done', which I never imagined I would feel.

Hey all,

I'm very cautiously joining you all - I'm 4w4d, putting my due date around 13th July.
We had a miscarriage in January at 5.5 weeks, and a miscarriage in June at 6w, so I'm very nervous and anxious about this one sticking. Blood tests so far look good (doubling in 48 hours and strong progesterone...so fingers crossed!)

I have a 12yo DD as well who is very much wanting a sibling.

Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Congrats Kez! Hope this ones a stick one! 🤞🏼🤞🏼

#12 Chethay2012

Welcome & congrats Kez 🥰 hoping for a sticky healthy baby & uneventful 9 months ahead for you xx

#13 FizzlingFireboxes

Posted 08 November 2019 - 03:49 PM

Oh almond don’t stress me with that information. Already having mini panics thinking about things.

Congrats chethay, wow no.9.

Congrats Kez. July 13 is my birthday, great day!

#14 FizzlingFireboxes

Posted 08 November 2019 - 03:53 PM

Oh and is anyone else extremely bloated? Not sure if it’s because it’s no3 and I am bloating easier but I look 4mths pregnant. We are not telling anyone until my scan on the 21st but I’m struggling to find clothes that fit and don’t emphasize it. Waiting for the bloating to go down.

#15 AlmondCapPls

Posted 08 November 2019 - 03:58 PM

Fizzling, sorry! I promise it’s worth it tho!

I’m bloated but no more than normal pre menstrual bloating. I showed pretty early with my third, and that was only 12mo ago so I have a feeling my body will be full steam ahead in no time.

I think I’ll be announcing after my scan @ 8ish weeks too.

Hi Ladies,

I am very cautiously joining in this month. This was our 4th cycle ttc baby #2 (clomid baby). I got a pretty decent positive line yesterday and my period is due today. I am pretty excited but also very shocked! It took 10 months to conceive DS1 so I wasn't expecting it to happen this quickly. I will ring my obgyn on Monday to let him know this month was a success and then see what we do from there! I assume some blood tests will be done.

I am hoping I don't show early. This isn't the 'best' time work wise but I have learnt that I can't revolve my personal life around work. I'm a teacher so no doubt next year I will have questions from parents.

Wishing everyone lots of sticky dust!

#17 Kez82

Posted 09 November 2019 - 02:28 PM

Thanks for the welcome :)

And welcome too smmaho!

Feeling incredibly bloated today and ready for a nap! It's cold here (Tassie) so I'm snuggled up on the couch with a blanket and so ready to just doze off.

I have my first Ob appointment booked for Monday 25th November which will have me at around 7 weeks. These next two weeks are going to drag! I just so desperately want to see a baby growing with a healthy heartbeat.

Where is everyone else from?

#18 smmaho

Posted 09 November 2019 - 02:32 PM

I'm from Melbourne and agree its so cold! It feels like Winter again.

#19 AlmondCapPls

Posted 09 November 2019 - 02:56 PM

Congrats and Welcome smmaho!

It’s freezing in Sydney today (especially after 33 yesterday!).

I am RAVENOUS today. I woke up at 4.30am starving, and it just hasn’t stopped. I’m trying to get into the habit of snacking regularly, because I know once the nausea hits me, if I’m not mindful of portion size I will stack it on. I think I put 10kg on in the first trimester last pregnancy :/

I also had tanked iron levels all second (and potentially first) trimester which meant I was super sedentary from the fatigue. It was just all round a bad time LOL so bloods, nutrition and movement are a big focus for me this time.

I’m in Sydney’s East.

I didn't put on a lot of weight until around 30 weeks last time. That's also when I developed high blood pressure. After the baby was born though that's another story. I put on too much and still am not back at pre baby weight!

Movement is definitely super important for me. I did prenatal pilates with a physio and I swear by it. I really believe it is the reason I healed so well and still have an amazing pelvic floor. I will start that probably in the second trimester.

This still feels surreal and I'm being super cautious knowing im still so early.

Hi ladies ☺️☺️

I’m jumping in very early! Roughly 4 weeks and EDD 18july.

This is our first ever BFP in 3 years of TTC#1 and was our second IVF transfer. I know it’s only early days but so happy to be over the first hurdle!

I had high BP/Pre eclampsia with all 3 at 39w and ended up induced all 3 times. I feel like it’s because I stack the weight on and end up quite big. I’d love to try to keep weight gain on the lower end of a healthy range this time, not be induced and have a water birth or maybe even a home birth.

I did Pilates in the last trimester last time too, and my pelvic floor function is also holding up pretty well. Do you work with a women’s health physio? Worth their weight in gold imo

Welcome smmaho & congratulations 😊
Bumbleflop I'm so happy & excited for you! Hopefully you have a very happy & healthy nine months ahead 🥰

AlmondCap I remember feeling like that in previous pregnancies, feeling so hungry - though not knowing what I wanted to eat & the nausea was always so much worse. I spent the entire first trimester constantly snacking. I tend to put 10kg on in the first 20 wks, then 5kg over the remainder.

I'm out of practice here on the boards, I've forgotten how to add quotes in posts 🤦‍♀️😂

I have my first appointment this morning. I'm expecting it to be fairly uneventful, organise the first trimester bloods & that's it really. I'm confident of my dates & we're discussing declining the 12w NT test, but will see what the appointment brings.

We're in SA & our weather has been all the place 🙄 today is windy & warm, then the rest of the week is 16° & showers

How's everyone feeling so far? Anyone have any scans or appts coming up?

#24 FizzlingFireboxes

Congrats bumbleflop and smmaho

I’m from Sydney and this heat is horrible at the moment. Doesn’t help morning sickness kicked in today. Vomiting, diarrhea and just feeling like crap 24hrs, which I expected after the last 2 but was hoping it might be better.

Chethay hope your first appointment went well. That reminds me I need to go get that blood work done, got given the referral a few weeks ago and have put it away and left it.

Next Thursday is my first OB appointment. I am also looking into the harmony test with this pregnancy as I am a bit older (37).

Hi all, cautiously joining in here. BFP yesterday. 4 weeks today.
Am in WA.
I went public last time, but considering private this time. Do I call this early?
