Yay, first in, hope there's some people to join me! Found out last friday, based on LMP due 12 August, getting blood results tomorrow!

Hi there! I've been waiting for this group to open. I'm due on August 2nd, so I'm 6+4 today. Had my fourth lot of bloods today and they're looking good.

My babies have all been IVF, but this was an egg retrieval cycle that ended up being cancelled due to poor response. My FS told me I could trigger and try naturally, and here we are! Scan next week.

Oh congratulations, that's amazing that it worked! What baby number will this be for you?

Thank-you! I have two girls, 6 and 3, and we lost our newborn boy a year ago due to a virus. So the journey this time has been quite challenging.

How many do you have?

Oh I'm so sorry for your loss, that must have been devastating, I imagine you might have mixed feelings going through it all this time.
This will be #4 for us, 4yo girl, 2yo boy and 1yo boy so far, we'd been tossing up a fourth so this is a kind of happy surprise.

Hello ladies! :)

Thrilled this group is now open! I love(d) my DIG Group first time around with my son, now 5, and we still chat even now.

I’m 6w tomorrow, tentatively due August 7th but have a dating scan next Monday. So far so good with blood tests, but holy heck, I am exhausted and my boobs have just about doubled in 48 hours 😅

Welcome and congratulations LZTM! Dating scan that's exciting! I've booked mine in for the 2nd Jan, wanted to get it sorted early with all the christmas/ new year rush. Should be 8 weeks by then. Feeling you on the exhaustion, I was just about falling asleep watching TV last night after the kids went to bed

How exciting Kallie!

Hello LZTM! Good luck for your scan! Mine is next Wednesday, I'll be 7+3.

I'm normally throwing up daily from 6 weeks, but apart from a day or two early on where I felt awful, I haven't had so much yet. Maybe the occasional queasiness. I was a bit worried that my HCG wasn't rising enough, but it is. I've actually got quite a bit of energy at the moment, so I'm embracing it and getting all of my Christmas jobs/baking done.

We were watching a Christmas movie with kiddo before bed last night and I fell asleep about 10 minutes in! The boys woke me up at the end and put me to bed 🙈 good idea waiting until after the Christmas rush - it is something else to look forward to! I was too impatient. And I’m pretty confident on O dates but as my cycles have been all over the place in length, GP suggested early dating scan.

Hi ladies! Popping in to join tentatively. It’s been a roller coaster to get here but praying we have a sticky little bean this time. I got a fairly dark positive this afternoon. I have a 3 year old little girl and unfortunately miscarried twin boys at 14 weeks in September. We started trying again right away and I fell pregnant straight away but it was chemical. So here we are now.

Can’t wait to join in on this journey with you all, I loved my first DIG and still talk to a lot of them today. Hope you’re all well and not too sick xx

Hi everyone.
I’m due August 20th with my second. I have a 22 month old daughter and had (have) a wonderful DIG from this site from my first.
I’ve had a bit of bad luck when it came to a miscarriage and a couple of chemical pregnancies in the past so I’m cautiously optimistic this time round.
Looking forward to sharing the journey with you all.

#21 Kallie88

Posted 15 December 2019 - 08:50 PM

Welcome and congratulations sa5h! Fx for an uneventful journey this time around xx

So exciting to see people slowly joining. The probably getting ahead of myself starting to get a list of names together, but with three already i know I'll need the whole 8 months left to prepare lol

#22 Waddles5

Posted 15 December 2019 - 09:19 PM

Omg I feel you Kallie! Baby 4 was super tricky to name, I feel like we’ve used all the ones we like up already haha
Have you got boy, girls or a mix so far?

#23 Kallie88

Posted 15 December 2019 - 09:32 PM

Lol yeah, and the ones I still like dh isn't so keen on! We've got 1 girl and 2 boys, hoping for a girl tbh coz it would even everything out so perfectly (birthdays in July, August, september and October).

#24 newme15

Posted 15 December 2019 - 10:45 PM

Hi everyone, I’m due with number 4 after a very long gap on August 6th.
I had a huge amount of symptoms at first but now that has just settled for extreme exhaustion and sore boobs.
After early loss/chemical in September I’m hoping this baby sticks.
