Good morning!
Just thought we could get to know each other a bit.   biggrin.gif
I'm due on September 1st with my second child, although due to a miscarriage 1st time around, this is my 3rd pregnancy. I have a DD Mia who is almost 17 months, so will be just past 2 when bub number 2 is due. I am 28 and live in Adelaide with my DH who is 30.
I tested at 10 DPO as I was going in for surgery that day. I got a BFP so had to cancel the surgery - id rather be pregnant than have an op any day! I'm not feeling as sick or tired yet as I did with DD but there is some all day nausea hanging around. Hopefully it isn't here to 18 weeks like last time.
Anyone else want to introduce themselves?

Hi everyone!
We found out yesterday were expecting bub #3 biggrin.gif After over 2 years of TTC and many MC's. I am praying this ones here to stay... Im almost afraid to announce it just yet, in case. Although this time the test showed 2 very strong pink lines!! And im tired and have this minor all day 'sick' feeling. So hoping my little miracle is a sticky. Our older 2 girls are 9 and 6. My hubby is waiting for a boy this time round hehe.
If I've calculated correctly bubs will be due between 3rd -7th.
Im from Melbourne too btw.
Congratulations to all the DI September mums.biggrin.gif

Posted 29 December 2011 - 02:35 PM

Hi!
I've already introduced myself in the 1st September post but this is the intro section after all :-)

First bub, second pregnancy (lost first at 6 weeks about 2 months back). Started getting minor cramps about a week ago, tested monday with a faint bfp, period was to start yesterday but no showing, and super strong bfp yesterday (I can always tell 2 - 3 days before period comes as I get super watery down there - nothing this time!) Due approx 6th september but yet to get to the GP (I'll get there sometime early next week)  Will get hold of the OB tomorrow. Having lost one before, fingers crossed baby 2 stays for the long haul!  I'm based in Perth xxx bbabyflip.gif

I may as well post now. I tested Sunday morning and got a BFP. Wasn't able to see the doctor until today due to the public holiday yesterday. Had my blood test today to confirm pregnancy and go back to the doctor tomorrow at 4pm to get the results.

Fingers crossed. I would be due around 5-7th of September. Hubby and I celebrate our first wedding anniversary this coming Sunday which is also very exciting. We were trying for 6 months for this little one. I have irregular cycles which has made things a little difficult, never knew when AF was due or when ovulated or should be testing.

#6 *Mumma-to-A*

Posted 06 January 2012 - 07:34 PM

Ok I'll be brave. I found out wednesday but have not been to the dr's to confirm yet. This will hopefully be baby number 2 for us. We have 1 DS. Hoping for a VBAC and based in Perth

Due sometime between 10-17 Sept but will ask for a dating scan to confirm a date.

Not many pregnancy symptoms at all which makes me cautious but I am starting to feel tired and I hung out our bedsheets but left the pillowcases in the washing machine - surely the forgetfulness must be a pregnancy sign.

#7 Belinda18

Posted 07 January 2012 - 07:33 AM

I've introduced myself in a couple of other threads but thought I would post here too.  I am 33 from Melbourne and this is my 3rd pregnancy and will be my 1st baby.  I took a home test on Christmas Day that had a line that only I could see (haha) but got my positive result on Boxing Day.  I am due on the 1st of September. I actually did 6 tests just to be sure!  I have PCOS and this pregnancy was the result of two rounds of Clomid.  My doctor had been monitoring me and this month we weren't even sure I had ovulated, so it was a great surprise!  Looking forward to getting to know all of you over the coming months.

I find these weeks so hard.. Waiting for symptoms and analyzing everything then when the sickness hits.... Aghh! This will be my 4th baby and told my husband 4 days after DTD that I felt pregnant. It was a long wait to see those two lines. Due 4th sept but have always had babies between 37-38 weeks.
I am from Perth have a nearly 9 year old boy, 6.5 yr old girl and 11 mth old boy.. Im still breastfeeding so just waiting for next week when the extreme tiredness will hit!
Feeling sick mostly between midnight and 4am.. Anyone else had this??

Posted 09 January 2012 - 11:57 AM

*whispering* Not wanting to be too loud as had M/C at 6 weeks two years ago but have had to stop myself from doing a HPT every time I go to the loo. All BFP. Unplanned but babies are always wonderful and my boys (aged 5 , 3 and a bit and my husband) have been hinting about having more babies for a while...
Fingers crossed for everyone.
I am throwing up and boobs bigger (Hello I'm Jess nice to meet you!) and mild abdominal pain...due 4/09/12

Hi,

I'm 31 and in the ACT. This is my second pregnancy, and I'm 6 weeks along today, due Sept 3. I have had some bleeding, so had a scan last Friday and saw the tiniest little heart beat, so starting to get excited.

I have horrible symptoms, all day nausea, light headed, off all food bar iceblocks, rice thins with vegemite and grapes, tired, headaches,sore boobs, burping all the time, and a red and very sensitive scalp. Only symptom I remeber from DD (4 years ago) was nausea, but I'd throw up and be sweet. This all day nausea is horrible.

Hi All,
I am very very new here (although I've been reading a few of your posts the last couple of days).
I got my BFP last Thursday, this is my first pregnancy and I am about 4 weeks.
I had a blood test last week, but as my doctor only works a few days a week, I won't get the results until tomorrow (but surely 4 HPTs can't be too wrong? biggrin.gif )
My husband and I are very excited, although cautiously so. My mother had three miscarriages between my brother and I, so I am hoping for a 'sticky baby' as I've noticed you all saying biggrin.gif
So far I've had no really noticeable symptoms, apart from feeling quesy and a bit light-headed in the afternoons/evenings. My boobs were a bit sore before I even knew I was pregnant, and I just figured it was a sign that AF was about to arrive.
Anyway, I am thrilled to be a part of your community, and looking forward to chatting to you all soon.
-Amy

Good evening ladies

Just thought I would introduce myself. I am currently 5wks & 3 days and just had another BT today and my hcg is 4978! So I am just so excited about this.

My hubby and I have been trying since about August last year and have had 2 m/c's due to a dicky thyroid which I have now had removed! Both of my m/c's I did not get such high levels of hcg so we are just so excited and praying for a sticky one!


Hope to get to know you all well in the coming months!

How exciting!!!

Cheers

Hello there!
We are surprised with our pregnancy, had just come off pill and we were travelling for the past month or so, so I guess it was on the cards! My hub and I are v excited. We are in Sydney, he is 34 and I'm 29. We were actually in India when we found out! Trying to find a chemist and explain we wanted a preg test was complex and it was only 40 cents, so wasn't sure it was correct. dr confirmed yesterday that we def were!

    I'm really new to forums, not sure what all the abbreviations are- is there a cheat sheet anywhere?

Posted 19 January 2012 - 10:44 AM

Hi everyone!

I've posted in the 'due 16th-30th Sept' thread but thought I'd send a quick introduction here too.
My partner and I are expecting our first child around 17-20 Sept (depending which calculators you use!).  It's very exciting as I've been wanting children for ages but we were only ready to start TTC in Dec last yr - and it worked first time!

I'm 5 weeks but am not feeling any sickness yet.  Very tired in evenings though, and my boobs are getting bigger already (am only a size A cup so it's very noticeable!).


We're based in Perth, have been housesitting for a  year but put an offer on a house the same week we found out I was pregnant! Everything is happening now! I'm 32, my partner is 31.

So glad I've found this forum where I can talk about my pregnancy with other people in the same situation.  Especially at the moment when we're keeping it a secret from everyone - it's so hard!

Hey everybody,

I am 26 and live in Geelong! DH is 27. We have a DD that will be 2 in May, and have just found out yesterday that we are expecting #2! It took us over a year to conceive DD, so was a big suprise when this one happened in a month! I've also just gotten accepted into uni for Nursing, so will be a whirlwind year for me I think!

September is going to be a busy month for us! My b-day on the 10th, anniversary on the 22nd, and bub due I think on the 26th! Have had bloods today to confirm! Also have a friend in Canberra that is due on the 2nd!!!

YAY!

Hi Everyone! I am Rachel, I am married to a wonderful man, and we hail from Brisbane. I am due with no 3 on 3rd September. I have a 12yo DS and a 4yo DD. We found out on Christmas eve which was nice, 1st cycle TTC and with both endo and pcos we are definitely surprised it happened so quickly! Bit of a scare with some bleeding last weekend, day in hospital, but so far so good! Have that lovely constant sea-sick feeling, no vomiting, insomnia and extreme fatigue, so I can't wait for when that all settles down. Secretly I am hoping for another girl, as our house is very very pink at the moment. If it's a boy, I have so much work to do before baby is born... Plus my DD is the only girl in her generation in our family - far outnumbered by boys all around us.

H&H 9 months to you all!

Hello ladies!

I'm 25yrs old and due around mid-September, I have a dating scan tomorrow to get an exact date. I have PCOS and have been repeatedly told by different doctors that it wont happen easily. I had very irregular periods so never bothered tracking them.  So when my husband and I decided just after xmas to stop preventing pregnancy and see what happens and I got pregnant straight away it was definitely a surprise!

I'm madly researching my options for pregnancy care and birth and I'm already getting a bit overwhelmed. For every positive opinion there is a negative and I'm quickly learning that I resent paying a small fortune for Private Health Insurance when the out-of-pocket costs will be so high.

On a positive note, there are a lot of pushchairs that I like! Tounge1.gif

I look forward to chatting with you and learning all these acronyms!
