Baby #: 5
Baby #: 1! (So I'm very nervous about everything and glad there's some experienced mums in this group to talk to!)
Baby number 1
This is my second pregnancy as my first resulted in my nearly 2 year old twins. I'm hoping to avoid hyperemesis this time around, and crossing my fingers that my twins will be sleeping through the night by the time this new baby arrives!
Baby # 1
Location: Coffs Coast
I am very happy to be able to share this exciting journey with a bunch of lovely ladies who will hopefully be able to offer me advice, support and knowledge. I hope I can do the same in return
Due date: 02/07/2012 (confirming with scan next week). Scan shows 11th July. Awaiting another scan to confirm.
Baby #: 1
TTC for 8 years... Baby #1 finally on their way... keeping my hopes up and fingers crossed...
EDD: between 3-8 July (going with 3rd at the moment coz I know when I concieved & last time I gave birth 4 days early)
Baby # 1!!!!
EDD: 4th July - but having scan to confirm
Hubby & I moved to Melbourne from the UK 3 weeks ago... just found out we're pregnant. Exciting as we weren't sure we could have kids, but the timing is awkward - we moved here for my new job. Whoops!
We don't really know anyone here yet so it would be great to share the experience with you all.
Baby # 1
Hi everyone - very nervous after m/c twins at 12 weeks earlier this year. Now hanging out for 7 & 9 wk scans and holding breath until "safe" after Christmas.
Baby#:3 - big surprise
I have endometriosis so this has been a bit of a long and nerve-wracking journey! Finally made it to BFP last Friday. Had my blood tests on Monday and came back with an HCG of 146 and seeing the Dr again tomorrow to discuss and possibly do another one (I think it might be a little bit low for 4 weeks 4 days) to check everything is doubling normally. Dating ultrasound booked for 15th November so hopefully will get to meet my baby then!
Feeling very nervous about this pregnancy. Really want everything to be OK!

Due date: Currently not sure (from last period 5/7/2012) but HCG showing between 5-6 weeks which makes it closer to 10/7/2012
Baby #: first
My mother lives a long way away, and when I told her she was excited but now she seems to busy to talk (which is the normal relationship I have with my mother). Hubby and I want to keep things quiet till we are closer to the three months (which currently seems so long away)
Baby #: 1 :-D
Can't wait to see an U/S and hear a heartbeat!!
EDD: 6th July (expecting up to 4 weeks or so earlier more than likely as both my boys were early and they said I just go early and grow them big)
My boys are 3 and nearly 5 - a handful at times!! Hoping for a girl. I have a strange feeling it might be twins?? not totally sure why I have that feeling though
EDD: waiting for scan to confirm
Baby #: 1!
If I knew I'd be this anxious I don't think I would have wanted to know so early! Can't wait for first scan and then week 12!

Had my first scan today and found out I am 6w5d not 9w3d as I thought! Very strange how that happens, but feel excited nonetheless. Seeing bub made everything so much more real. Starting to feel a bit queasy but hopefully that won't last too long (fingers crossed!).
Baby # 2
My DS is 7 - and I am a bit nervous about having kids so far apart. I've also just been told I can't go back to the hospital I want as now they have cachement areas???
All in all - I am rather excited Hoping for a girl!

I am so nervous, I have an OB appointment on the 6th of December. I had dating scan at 5wks and 1 day, as I have only just come off the pill after 10+ years. Only had a sack and no yoke, so even though my doctor has said that is normal I keeping thinking that something might or already has gone wrong. I am driving myself and my husband crazy.
12wks seems like a lifetime of stress
EDD: 11th July

Baby no. 3
DD 5yrs (19.06.2006) DS 4yrs (30.10.2007)
I am hesitant to join this group as I have a history of miscarriage (6+) and I was in major pain yesterday, severe sharp stabbing pain, cramping, constant dull ache thru my tummy, pelvis and lower back with spotting, temps and fevers and some bowel issues. I am worried a miscarriage is on the way as I am no longer feeling the severe nausea I had previously been experiencing up til yesterday. I decided to join anyway, because I want this baby desperately and I can usually tell if a baby is going to stay or go and I really thought this one was a fighter. Today I have had next to no pain no spotting, but still no nausea. Still mild temp, but not feverish, tho all my joints are sensitive and aching like I have the flu.
We decided to go for a 3rd baby and the first month of TTC we did, which NEVER happens due to POCS and ENDO. We were expecting to have to try for a minimum of 6months. Silly me refused to think about the chance of miscarriage and did not factor that trauma into our plans.
So thats my story so far. I really hope no one else has been experiencing this, its so heartbreaking. I am lucky that, tho I have only told my DH my Sis, they were a great support for me yesterday. My sister let me cry, fed me mud cake and cream and then proceeded to distract me and even had me laughing.
Baby #: 3
I have 2 sons already, one who will be 9 in January and one who is turning 1 just before Christmas! Currently i think i'm nuts as DS2 will only be about 19 months old when baby 3 arrives. Hoping for a girl but thinking i'll probably get another boy!
Baby #: 2
I feel a bit nervous saying it out loud to people so early, but whatever will be will be, so may as well enjoy it now
Baby #: 1
Location: Gold Coast
As someone else mentioned, I'm iffy about saying it out loud right now, it all feels very strange!
I am not sure if I am ready to post yet but thought I would.
I got my BFP on 11dpo. With the absence of Pregnancy symptoms I am really doubting that I am pregnant. It was a faint result on that day but did a test two days ago - one with FR for when you are overdue and got a positive and then tested with FR EP test the one you can test up to 6 days before your missed period and the pregnancy line came up before the control line in fact it practically glowed. But what is getting me is there is no sore boobies I had them with all of my other pregnancies but not this one. I am getting cramping on and off but that could be things settling down I had them with DS.
I am going to my GP on Monday to confirm and then I will request a scan. I just need to see the heartbeat and then I will get excited. At the moment I am take things as they come.
hi am a first timer and older at 39yrs.
Real name: For now just call me H, i have some family/friend stalkers who frequent this board. Will reveal my real name once ive told everyone!
DH and i are super excited about our first bubba. I have had some fertility problems and was all ready to start clomid when along came our suprise!
Still quite nervous as its such early days but trying to relax and just go with it all.
Port Lincoln, South Australia.
DD1 will be 3 in February, so I'm so happy that we've fallen pregnant again. Have only spent 5 months actively trying for baby #2. My period is due this Saturday, but my cat slept right up against my tummy on Monday morning & he NEVER does that, like EVER. He wont even sit in your lap for a pat, let alone lye next to you in be, he's always got a bit of distance. SO long story short, I did a test & it was a FAINT pos & I didn't believe it. That is, until yesterday when I got a more expensive brand & tested again this morning, !!! NO mistaking.
Baby # 1!!!!
Gold Coast QLD
Currently crossing everything before dating scan in 7 sleeps!

I have two lovely girls and this is to be my third. Just found out I was pregnant on the weekend and am due at end of July. Last pregnancy I was enduced a little early due to high blood pressure. They will watch me closely, apparently.
