Hi KayJay

My clinic says to wait until after 7 week scan. They have been keeping my doc up to date with all my treatment so I guess they forward the scan news as well :xxx3:

Kayjay sorry to hear about your scare make sure you take it easy. It is time enough telling your GP after your scan as that is when they will refer you for booking in appointment. Take care xfingers

Lovely - thanks ladies. My scan is on Thursday so think I will make an appt with my GP for Friday. I remember the nurse said she would notify my GP about my pregnancy.

HI everyone,

I hope those of you who are having a rough day feel better soon.

Babyflint, please do not feel selfish. We haven't told anyone yet either. I had an early m/c in the summer so was very apprehensive, plus SIL told everyone as soon as she found out she was pregnant, then had m/c at 8 weeks so had to tell everyone the other news. We have decided to tell my mum on Mother's Day, then DH's parents but swear them to secrecy until week 12/13 (i.e. when we give them the ok) after the appointment with the midwife. You have to do what is right for you. Everyone will be so happy for you, but if you prefer to delay, then do it.

All I can say today is thank heavens it is Friday. I am knackered (nothing new there, have been constantly knackered since getting the BFP) and hungry ... again. Today at coffee time we had a little celebration with some students who sit their final exams next week... nothing flash just coffee and cakes. I do not like the smell of coffee at the best of times, but I came out of a classroom and into the staffroom where someone had made a pot of very (and I mean very) strong coffee. I thought I was going to be sick, so quickly got to my desk, threw the window open and stood there breathing in fresh air. My colleagues just thought I was having my normal reaction to coffee.... little did they know that I was actually trying not to vomit!

Anyway, on a Friday I finish work early so stopped at the shopping centre and have bought the cutest pair of 0-6 month old bootees to give to my mum as we tell her the good news. (Better make sure I take a box of tissues with me as we are both guaranteed to start crying.) Also got a photo of the POAS printed (used one of the instant machines so that no-one behind the counter would raise and eyebrow at the picture) ready for the photo album. DH thought taking a photo of "the sticks" was a little crazy, but then said 'hormones.... must start expecting you to do crazy things'.

That's about all the news from this end.
Have a good weekend,

:xxx3:

Hi Everyone!

BabyFlint - It is really frustrating when someone decides to tell someone about your news, especially at this early stage. I think sometimes they are just so pleased for you that they can't help themselves. We have only told some of the people that know we are going through tx. A few that know we are going through tx don't know, as I want to wait until we have had the 12 week scan before telling anyone else. Everyone is different and if you aren't comfortable with telling people yet then it is best to wait. I'm sure you and your DH will agree on when to tell people once you've had another chat about it.

Jo - can't believe you are still testing - it's an addiction!! I'm too scared to test more than once!

KayJay - sorry to hear that you had a scare yesterday. The fact that it was pink fresh blood sounds like you knocked your cervix when using using the progynova. I have been told that before by the clinic that your cervix is very delicate at the moment due to all of the hormones and one slight knock will make it bleed. I haven't told my GP yet about being pregnant. I think that my clinic does that after my scan but I'm not sure.

Louise78 - Sorry to hear that you are experiencing the same pains as previously. I hope they go away soon.

Elisa - that sounds lovely giving your mum booties when you tell her. You will definitely need the tissues. I remember when my sister told my parents about being pregnant (after 2 years of trying), she just put the 12 week scan in front of them - it was so lovely to see their faces!

AFM - Having had a very negative few days, I went into work determined to feel positive and my (. .) even started hurting again which helped. But this afternoon I had a periody feeling and very very light crampy twinges. When I went to the loo I had a very light bit of discoloured discharge (yellowy/light brown - TMI!), which to me looked like the start of spotting. I came home straight away as couldn't face being at work. I phonned my acu lady and she said that it is common to have a funny coloured discharge with pregancy and the twinges sound normal as well. She said that it was difficult to tell with me as I do have a tendency to have brown spotting before my AF starts. She said to wait and see if it gets worse and then I can come and see her for a session of accupunture this eve or tomorrow if I want to. She is so knowledgable and made me feel slightly happier. I'm definitely taking it easy this weekend and hope that it doesn't turn into anything more.

Wow, I nip off to the beach for an afternoon walk and all of a sudden I have loads to catch up on!

Louise, I'm so sorry you're having more pains. Get that backside of yours on the sofa, feet up and rest, that's an order! I know you're trying not to off load on DH, so you know we're all here for you. I'm sure you'll be fine, just make sure you rest for the remainder of the evening and have a very lazy weekend too.

Beanie, I hope you're resting too. I'm sorry you're having some cramping but I had AF feelings in the first weeks since my BFP and still get them occasionally now. Your womb does a lot of stretching and growing and yep, it hurts, so it is probably just that you're feeling and your body has decided to get rid of a bit of old gunk it doesn't need. Discharge is normal so try not to worry and make sure you relax tonight.

Elisa, you've got me all excited, I wish I could be a fly on the wall when you tell your dear mum, I bet her face is going to be a picture!

KayJay, I'm sorry that you too are having some worries, but I do think your explanation is right. Just rest up tonight and I'm sure all will be back to normal. I had to make an appt with my GP as soon as I got my BFP, but that was purely because I needed a prescription for more pessaries, otherwise I think I would have waited until I saw the heartbeat. You will need a midwife appt between 8 and 10 weeks so once you've had the scan there will be plenty of time to get the appointments you need.

AFM, well I'll be taking my own advice and lazing on the sofa this evening. DH and I went to the beach this afternoon for a lovely walk which was really nice, although it did mean I missed out on my hour nap, so now I'm utterly exhausted and wondering how I'll be able to stay awake for Lost tonight! Perhaps this may be a bit early for some of you to think about, but do you know there is a Baby Show happening in May at the NEC?? Lots of my booklets have an advert in so I've had a gander and decided to book myself and my mum a ticket. It's at the end of May so I'll be approaching 20wks by then so thought it would be a great opportunity to have a proper look and test of buggies and maybe pick up things like monitors/breast pumps etc with a bit of discount! I live down in Cornwall and we're a bit limited on shops down here. Plymouth has a small Mothercare and there is a Babies R Us, but when it comes to prams I figured the Baby Show is probably the best place to road test them all! DH isn't the slightest bit interested in coming but my mum is really excited, so it should be a nice day. If anybody is interested, the website is www.thebabyshow.co.uk.

Hi Kay,

Well I went to the docs today which is 3 days after my BFP. This was only because I have to be followed up by cardiologists, gentic specialist and so on so I think that if you feel you need to then go.

Nad - I guess it could be implantation blood, was thinking the same myself.

I started the pessaries last night and this morning I woke up feeling amazing, I think that it is mind over matter just to know I have started the pessaries has put my mind at ease a lot.

With regard to the bloody discharge it is now just a clear discharge.

Elisa I too would like to be a fly on the wall when you tell your mum it really will be amazing. What a mothers day present I don't think you could beat that one. Good luck and hope all goes to plan xfingers
Well it is DF birthday on Sun so we are going out for a meal tomorrow night. Nothing special planned as we had a party last year for his 40th so that will have to do him for a few years :snigger: Seeing his 2 babies yesterday was the best present he could get anyway.
I think I might of felt twin on left moving today as it felt like a bubble bursting every now and again. I hope it was and I can't wait to feel definate movements it really is amazing feeling biggrin2

Dr told me yesterday to take double dose of iron, a multivitamin (without vit A ) and folic acid until end of pregnancy. I got them today so now dreading constipation so will continue with loads of fruit and juice.

Hope you all have a happy healthy weekend blowkiss

Any way we always knew it could end in tears but decided we were going to enjoy being pregnant for how ever long it would be and those two little babies are triving away there. Please do not stress yourself and share your good news and savour every minute. :goodluck:

Hi everyone

Well my spotting has got worse today (light/medium brown) and I have a definite period feeling stomach. I really think my AF is on its way. We can't believe that it is going wrong again! I am going for acupuncture today to try to stop the spotting but I think it's a bit late now. :sadface:

Hi girls!

Beanie, hope you are fine now! As I said earlier to Rosie I have had some brown, black spotting since before the test day Sorry TMI (I even got some black stringy clotting type of blood sometimes), So keep your faith and chill. I do Acu too and it really helps me to chilllll.

Louise, hope your crampings gone, I have some quite bad cramping too if I stand for too long, so relax please!

About all the comments about when to tell I think I will around 14 weeks or so??? I saw my midwife yesterday and she is SO lovely :cheese: She gave me lot of advice and yes (DH was asked to leave about 5 mns for the domestic violence questions!). But she referred me to a consultant at hospital who is a specialist for multiple birth, and another one for my weak cervix to see if I need stiches! She also referred me for the down syndrom scan at 12 weeks and another at 21 weeks. So got a scan at 10 w and a half and another one 2 weeks later which is great! She also said with multiples I should expect more scans and check up! She also said that if I had any worrying pains to phone her or hospital to go for a scan!!
SO tired right now. Slept after work yesterday for 12 hours!!! :sleeping: Obviously feeling sick now! thinking what I can eat??????

Kistin hope you have a lovely meal with DH!

Morning girls,

Beanie - thinking of you sweetie and hope you are relaxing and taking care of yourself. I really hope things are ok for you x

Louise - how are you feeling today hun? x

:hi: to everyone else and hope you're enjoying the weekend :hugs:

I'm pleased to say my bleeding looks like it was a one off as I've not seen any since that Thursday night. My sickness on the other hand seems to be getting worse. I'm 6 weeks now and have read that it tends to come in the 6th week. I've been nauseous since my 2ww and think it may have something to do with the progynova I'm on but reckon my body's natural hormones are getting stronger and making it worse now. I've not been sick yet but thought I was going to be this morning. Off to my friends new place for lunch in a mo - let's hope I can stomach the food! I spoke to DH earlier and he asked how I was - when I told him I was stood over the toilet feeling like I was going to be sick he giggled. He was sympathetic but I think my sickness is reassuring him - like things are going well with the pg!

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

KayJay - Glad the bleeding has stopped, hope you are taking things easy though.

Beanie - Sending you :hugs:, try not to panic honey, I hope everything is OK, will be thinking of you. Make sure you rest.

Louise - Same goes for you hun, sending :hugs:, hope you are resting up.

Elisa - Am loving the idea of giving your Mum booties! You are definitely going to need tissues for that!

Hope everyone else is getting along fine, sending my love to you all.

AFM - Am feeling tired today, went to a gig last night and got home at midnight, was well worth it though! Have to enjoy these things while I can. Have a fun issue over getting estrogen and progesterone prescribed for me on the NHS - my GP has given me a small amount but doesn't know if she should give me any more freebies because I had private tx in Spain! She ended up phoning my private clinic here - awaiting the outcome! :rolleye: I think I have another drugs bill coming my way, hey ho.


Love Gracie

The pain- I think- was really bad trapped wind which is very embrassing! I think that's how it was day before bleed last week which is why I was worried. I have some slight af type pains but I think that is the stretching- I don't know I have run out of steam worrying about it so just trying to ignore it now. Thought the af pains would have gone by now?

Louise- glad your bleeding has stopped, maybe you just had the trapped wind as you've not been very active due to your scare. It's wierd how something so simple can be so painful.

Gracie- Hi and welcome to this thread. That's terrible if you're going to have to pay for your medication. If you had any treatment in another country then came home with complications ie, infection etc, the nhs would treat you as appropriate so I think its ridiculous that because it was fertility treatment that they might not fund that. Grr, get so ragin at the system.

Beanie- hope everything is settling down for you hun, look after yourself.

Kayjay- glad it was just a once off and as horrible as the sickness must be, it's probably comforting in a strange way that things are as they should be.

Well my OHSS seems to be much better since Friday so am feeling much better. Altho part of me is thinking why is it better? as pregnancy usually makes it worse!! In fact it's a bit worrying how little symptoms I have, I've got sore boobs, tiredness and very occassional mild nausea. I'm hoping that I'm just lucky and its not that there's anything wrong.

Hello everyone hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Beanie - I hope things have improved for you, I will be praying things stay good :hugs:

Pinkchick - I haven't had any symptoms either except for being really tired in the evenings, so try not to worry :hugs:

AFM - When we got a BFP last time by day 6 I tested again and it was negative and blood test confirmed chemical pregnancy. Well it is day 6 today and I know I shouldn't have but I tested this morning and to my absolute delight it is still positive and the line came up really quick and dark which I assume is a good thing. This waiting for the scan is terrible it makes the 2WW seem like a walk in the park!!!

Hope everyone is having a good Sunday afternoon, the sunshine here is gorgeous but it's also freezing!

JoJo - What are you like with all the POAS! It sounds like you had a similar experience to me last time, xfingers for the both of us! I have managed to resist peeing on any more sticks because I am too mean to go and buy them! :snigger:

PinkChick - Hello there! Sorry to hear you've been poorly with OHSS, just what you needed! Don't worry about lack of symptoms, I don't really have much going on either TBH. Felt a bit green yesterday afternoon and am a bit tired but that's pretty much it at the moment.

AFM - Funny thing today, I am now on the English version of the Oestrogen patches I have had stuck to me for the last month or so, hence I can now read the booklet that goes with it! It is basically HRT and it's the same brand, just now in a language I can understand. It makes me laugh as it states that under no circumstances should I use if pregnant! Honestly, it's a good job I trust the Spanish doctors otherwise I'd be in a right old state worrying about it all. Perhaps having drugs with Spanish labels is better - ignorance is bliss! Hmmm I wonder what the progesterone label says, I am off to investigate........................

Sending :hugs: to you all!

Hi everyone

Happy Sunny Sunday to you all !!! Its amazing what a bit of sun does to blow away those worrying cobwebs :happy:

Jo - so pleased your test went well this morning [zx127] Waiting for the 1st scan is torture but before you know it the day will arrive and you'll have the most wonderful sight on the screen

Pinkchick - your symptoms are all good! Try not to worry hun.

Louise - not long til your scan on Tuesday :happy:

Kayjay - how you doing?

Beanie - thinking of you, hope you're ok?

Gracie - I agree I think ignorance is definitely bliss sometimes.

Everyone else - hope you're ok?

AFM - I have decided Saturdays are the days I feel nervous and worry that I'm going to miscarry. last sat I felt really glum as i had no symptoms. yesterday I went to visit my friends in Leeds and was rushing to the loo every half hour as had a mad panic I was bleeding - what is wrong with me? I'm going nuts!! HELP !! I want to enjoy being pregnant but I just cant seem to let myself.

Lala - You are not mad at all, I get the fear every time I feel my pessary leaking out (sorry TMI) as I am too convinced I am bleeding. When will the knicker watching end?

Once we are all passed these first few scary weeks I am sure we will all start to actually enjoy being pregnant! I guess having all been through so much to get here it's hard to believe it is really happening.

I have a weekend worry thing too lala! I know exactly how you feel- it is really horrendous feeling that way. You have just got to remind yourself there is no reason for anything to happen - all will be fine Hun just hang in there- less that 20 days until your 12 week scan xxxx constant kw is slowly driving you insane but soon little babs will be here and all this will begin to dwindle. I am sure a little further in you will begin to relax xxxx and if you are mad then it sounds like the rest of us are too!!!

jo I am glad the test was all good and it will soon be your scan but it is so hard waiting - we are here to keep you company xxx

pinkchick - your symptoms sound just fine and everyone is differentxxx

Gracie I agree with lala- the less I know the better I am sure they know what they are doing xxx

the sun is shining away but it is still cold. I have been on my sewing machine trying to get the hang of making things! Starting with a cushionxx.

Can I ask when did af type pains stop for everyone? Somedays I don't feel a thing and then others really uncomfortable ( like today) is this normal?

Louise so glad to hear you are ok and bleeding has stopped. Yes the stretching feeling comes and goes and because there are twins it will be worse. It settles down after 8 weeks but try not and worry as it is normal.
I still get it occasionally now but the first few weeks was the worst.
I am still nauseated when hungry or tired which is most of the time. I will be 11 weeks tomorrow happydance and bump is growing rapidly.
DF spotted a foetal heart monitor yesterday and wanted to get it. I was unsure as felt we could get obsessed with it and might stress me out. Unfortunately it only picks heartbeat up after 21 weeks so I will have a long wait.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Take care everyone and remember you are pregnant enjoy blowkiss

Wow, I've only been off the PC for a day and abit and I've missed so much chatter!

Had a lovely weekend with DH, but no afternoon naps on either Saturday or Sunday together with two fairly late nights and I'm utterly exhausted! I just can't wait for the second tri where the tiredness disappears and the burst of energy appears! Got to ring for my 12wk scan appointment this morning, I'm excited as I'm now 9wk 4d and it doesn't seem all that far away.

I hope everybody enjoyed their weekend, although it appears we now have 'Silly Saturday' for KW'ing. I'm the same as Gracie, I wake up twice a night for a wee and each time, a bit of pessary excess is wiped away and it feels like I'm bleeding! Took me ages to stop turning the light on and inspecting the tissue and to just trust what it is and go straight back to bed!

Kirsten, I too have seen dopplers and was tempted, but I think it would just make me panic if I couldn't find a heartbeat. I know 2mums has one and she has heard her baby's HB for a while now so perhaps check with her what make she got?

Louise, I still get AF type pains occasionally, I think they just come and go as your womb stretches. My midwife said it was completely normal.

Beanie - how are you hun? I hope things are ok now and the bleeding stopped?

Hope everybody else enjoys Monday. It's freezing but glorious sunshine here. I'm off to do my grocery shopping this morning before I tackle the huge build up of ironing I seem to have acquired! xx

Good morning 11weeks today biggrin2
Claire the one I bought was only £25 from argos and they said you can't return it unless faulty. I think 2mums was a dearer one. We saw it in mothercare for £30 and a girl told us she had one and it was good so only 10 weeks to wait. I am really tired too and as we went shopping on Sat and then out that night I was exhausted too. We went for a long walk yesterday so I needed a doze when I came back. I really hope I will have more energy and that the sickness settles next week so I can go back to work. I need to get some money gathered together.
Hope you are all ok thumbup

Hiya,

I Hope everyone is OK on here, I am really sorry I haven't posted but have been worried something is going to happen so haven't, but have been keeping up to date everyday, taking peoples advice! I had my first scan last Monday when I was 7 weeks 5 days and they found a heartbeat straight away but were not able to offer any other information as the nurse said she was not qualified to offer any further information about the scan, only the heartbeat. I then saw my GP on Thursday who referred me to the midwife. She rang me on Thursday night and said due to me loosing my twins at 20+6 on my last pregnany I would be under a consultant this time so it was important that they see me asap. She then told me they were short staffed as one midwife was off sick and that she could not give me a date for the booking appointment but that it wouls be late this week or the beginning of next! Then Saturday I received a scan appointment in the post for 18th March by which time I will be 10 weeks 1 day - is this too early for the 12 week scan? It will probably mean I will pay for a private scan at about 15 weeks as 10 weeks between scans (10 and 20 weeks) is an awfully long time.

Hi Everyone! blowkiss

I haven't been here for a couple of days, so I am just trying to catch up with all the posts. I had a lovely weekend, but I know what you mean about tiredness. We went for a day trip on Saturday and all Sunday I was absolutely exhausted. I also seem to sleep for an hour or so during the day. You all lot have a sickness and I just can't stop being hungry. I the combinations I eat, I would never eat it before, but eh I am preggo, so I enjoy it till I can. Oh, I went shopping and I bought my first maternity jeans and trousers and bra and a few tops. The jeans are sooooooo comfy, they are from M&S and they were quite dear, I think £35, but they are deffo worth it. I thought I will be size 12 or more, but surprisingly I am still size 10 and there is still plenty of space to grow. So i am quite happy. I have decided to stay this week home and wait for my first scan on Thursday. I still have a mild OHSS, but I think I will manage work froom next week on. I am quite scared about Thursday and just want to have it over and done with. I know though that I won't feel much better as I lost my little one when I was 9 weeks last time, so I think I will be worrying all this trimester. Well enough about me for now.

Becca - great news that you saw a heartbeat. It was not very nice from the nurse to just kick you out without reassuring you, but I am absolutely certain, that everything is fine with your little one. As you, if they do not offer me more scans I will go private. xx
Kirstin - YEY! 11 weeks! I can't belive you will be soon leaving us. Hope your sickness goes away soon. Oh, kirstin, have you looked at the bump picks, there is one lady with twins, photographed at 11 weeks, OMG the bump is already big, but beautiful! xx
Simmmo - I too have to attack ironing today and clean the house (i will leave the floors for my DH though. I can't belive how little work makes me tired, I sometimes feel so useless, just want to sleep most of the times :) xx
Louise - I am so glad that your scary pains are gone and that your bleeding has stopped. Just take it easy and be possitive, your little ones will be fine.I also get a little pains down there here and there, but I just ignore them as they are most likely a womb stretching, so try not to worry. xx
Jo - I am pleased your test went well. I did a few tests (about 4) recently too. i actually bough a digital one, when I was 6 weeks and it showed 3+ from conception, which I was very happy with, because that meant it was 5weeks + pregnant. I am determined not to POAS till Thursday, lets see whether Iresist. xx
Lala - I think we are all nuts here. We went through so much to get here, that we all worry this first trimester, I am sure we will enjoy the pregnancy once we past these first 12 weeks. xx
Pinkchick - I also suffered from OHSS. I just bloated after EC and ET and then about a week after ET I started to have awful pain, shortness of breath, etc. I had to go to A&E and had to stay in the hospital for 5 days. I had it quite bad for about 2 weeks and now, it is just very mild, no pain really, just bloated (I look at least 4 months pregnant at the moment), tired, and sore (.)(.) and hungry all the time! I also worry whether everything is ok, because of my OHSS getting better, we just have to stay possitive and hope that we are the lucky ones. xx
Gracie - hallo! I know what you mean about ignorance - deffo a bliss sometimes. Hope you did not have to pay for your medicine, they should have prescribed it for you, i think. xx
:hi: to everyone else I did not mention. Have a lovely Monday everyone and lots and lots of possitive vibes to you all. xx

Hi Everyone

Hope you are all okay. My bleeding got worse on saturday with bad AF pains. I tested on Sunday and there was the thinnest faintest line on there that I nearlly missed. I guess this is the left over hormone. This happened to me last time at about the same time. The only difference is that last time I had spotting from the day that I got my BFP. My clinic don't want me to stop taking the gestone until they scan me in case of some miracle. They have brought my scan forward to this Thursday. If there is nothing there then I can stop the drugs. If there is something I have to carry on until the next week when they will be able to check for a heart beat.

I know that it is over, so sadly won't be posting on this thread anymore. I wish you all the best of luck and hope you have smooth and healthy pregnancies.

Thank you for your support. xx

Well, I am back from the grocery shopping and think I may have overdone it somewhat! I'm exhausted, feel sick and know I need to eat lunch but can't really be bothered. I had a massive shop to do and have hurt myself a little with all the lifting out of the trolley and lifting the bags in and out of the car. I try to be very careful with how much I pack into bags when I am on my own (Dh HATES shopping!) but think I went a bit too far today and now have a bad back and a bit of an achey tummy. The trolley was a nightmare and probably strained myself trying to get it in a straight line! I'm determined to sit on the sofa for a couple of hours and won't start my ironing until later this afternoon so I can rest and maybe snooze.

I rang for my scan appointment this morning and it is Friday 26th March at 9.25am, when I'll be 12wks & 1day. I'm very excited as read today in my maternity notes that the baby starts moving now and by 12wks actually looks like a proper baby, albeit with a slightly bigger head, but it is starting to feel so real now, only 2 1/2 wks to go and we'll be watching Chunk on the monitor waving at us!

Louise, hope the scan goes well tomorrow and you get to see your LO's nice and clearly.

Beanie - we're just crossing posts here so hope I catch you. Just wanted to say how very sorry I am. I know it's hard to remain positive but I truly hope there is a miracle for you on Thursday. Thinking of you xxxx

Bambu - aren't maternity jeans the best invention ever??? I don't think I'll ever stop wearing mine, they're just so comfy! I got mine from Next @ around £25 as the M&S near me doesn't seem to have a maternity dept unfortunately. I'm glad your OHSS symptoms are clearing up, I really think that they only get worse during very early pregnancy and then it is meant to settle down once your body catches on that you're carrying a LO in there!

Hope everybody else is well today?

I am meeting up with a girl I met at the private clinic we both had 2 Icsi attempts at the same time. She gets her result on Fri if her NHS attempt worked so I really feel for her and hope she doesn't get upset when she see's my bump. It would be fantastic if she gets her BFP too xfingers

Hi girls

Beanie- thinking about you chick, praying for things to work out for you.

Simmo- you take it easy girl. I think it's difficult with the whole shopping thing cause they are always encouraging you to use your reusable bags and the ones I have are huge so means they are really heavy when full. I hate the way they make you feel guilty for needing to use their bags!!!

Louise- good luck for you scan tomorrow

Thanks for all your comments on my lack of symptoms, you've all made me feel better as usual. blowkiss

I am feeling so worried today. Not really had anymore discharge but am slightly worried that I haven't had a lot of symptoms, I know I am only 5 weeks tomorrow but I thought I would at least have some stretching pains?? I know this probably sounds a bit silly but I am so worried. I am off work now until the first scan in 2 weeks but I wont be happy until I know our little is definitely there.

Morning ladies!

Pinkchick - you absolutely hit the nail on the head! The cashier looked at me yesterday when I asked for some 'normal' bags and then looked at my huge re-useable ones which were only just over half full and sort of tutted. How rude!! :cross:

Rosie - 5wks is still early for proper symptoms and perhaps you'll be one of us lucky ones that doesn't really get many? I really haven't had anywhere near as much sickness as I expected, only every now and again, plus the stretching pains come and go and I could go a week or more with nothing and then have it for a day and then go another week. We're all different but it's all completely normal, try not to worry and use the next couple of weeks to rest lots before your scan.

Louise - good luck today, can't wait to hear all about your little one's!!

I'm having a quiet day today. I went for a nap yesterday but ended up not being able to sleep as I kept thinking about the bloody ironing so ended up doing about 3/4 of it! We went to some friends last night but left at 9.30 so I could come home to bed. I was fast asleep by 10pm and woke up at 7.15am, only getting up once for a pee at 3am so feeling better today. I've got a bit of paperwork to do which involves sitting down and apart from putting the washing on the line and doing a bit of dusting I'm not planning on exerting myself much today!

Hi Girls,

SOrry I haven't been in touch for a while. Me and DH got a puppy this weekend so we have been sooooooooo busy! She is gorgeous and keeping my mind of my worries.

I go for a scan tomorrow to see if the pregnancy sac and yolk have progressed. I am really nervous but hopeful!

Good luck to all,

Hi Everyone!

Hope everyone is doing well today.

Claire - I can't agree more when it comes to maternity jeans, what an invention!!!! It will be well hard to start wearing a normal one again. I didn't know that Next does maternity too, will have to pop in a bigger Next and see what they have to offer. I quite like Next clothes, so I might buy a second pair! Thanks for reassuring me regarding the OHSS, Ithink I just need to see my LO on that scan to start believing, 2 more nights!!! YEY!!! xx

BellaLove - good luck for tomorrow, I am sure everything will be fine. I wish I could have an earlier scan too. This wait is sooo nerve-wracking. xx

Rosie - I agree with Claire, some women don't have any symptoms at all. I have hardly any, so just enjoy it till you can and try to stay possitive. xx

Louise - Good luck for your scan today, don't let us waiting too long. xx

Beanie - I am so sorry to hear that you are bleeding, please hang in there, I will pray for a little miracle for you. Thinking of you :hugs: xx

Kay Jay - I just can't wait till Thursday!!!! How are you coping? xx

AFM - 2 more sleeps for me and hopefully we will be able to see :heart: or :heart: :heart: , I am sooo excited and scared as well. I have to do some work from home today, so I should rather start. Also have lots of washing,some left ironing to do and I need to wash the floors too. What an exciting day for me today! (NOT).

Sending everyone lots of blowkiss Have a nice day!

Well... Two heartbeats and they are now 14mm and 16mm so over double last week. We have been seen by the consultant today. They found a third sac etc but no heartbeat!!! They said it is a once in a career moment and have taken a video to use on training for future! Why is nothing straight forward. We have to go for a scan each week and have been referred to the special facility. They said there was a 50/50 chance at the moment so have signed me off for a while. They think I might be anaemic(sp)possibly. What a rollercoaster! Will have to take it week by week xxx off to first midwife appointment but the clinic did say that just to tell them that they will be in charge if
care and given me a another consultant that I will see at the impact unit after 10 weeks -hopefully xxx

hope you are all resting and doing okxxx

Louise - I am so glad you saw your two little heartbeats, it must have been lovely! Can I ask why they say 50/50 still? Is it just because you had a bleed, as if they are growing well and hearts are beating then I would have thought that was good news?? And a third sac - does that mean your one little blasto split three ways?

It really must be a rollercoaster of emotions for you at the minute, but take comfort in the fact that your babies are still going strong. Plenty of rest and lots of leafy greens for your iron. My mum told me the other day that watercress has an absolute ton of iron in it, more than spinach, so perhaps a nice watercress soup would be good?? Anaemia in pregnancy is pretty common so you may end up on iron tablets, but just make sure you eat lots of iron rich foods and have a glass of orange juice at the same time as it helps with absorption, and hopefully you'll be fine.

Glad your clinic seem to be very good at keeping an eye on you - scans every week will be good for reassurance!

Take care xx

Wow! So much has happened, it's getting really hard to keep up!

Louise - I am SO pleased that your two LOs are hanging in there - surely you must be through the worst now? Why are they still saying 50:50?

Beanie - thinking of you hun. Got everything crossed and sending lots of positive vibes.

Rosie - 5w is still really early. I wouldn't be too concerned at this stage, as long as there's no bleeding etc. The wait for the first scan is dreadful, but it WILL be here. Soon.

Bellalove - good luck for tomorrow. Hope they can see enough at this stage to reassure you that all is going well. :smile:

AFM - pootling along really. 9w today happydance , so although still conscious that it could all still go wrong, we've never got this far before and I am slowly starting to relax into this pregnancy. My DH is still terrified, and on tenterhooks every time I go to the loo! I am doing my best to reassure him, as he is off skiing with the lads on Thursday (booked before this tx) and I want him to relax and enjoy his break without worrying all the time about us.

Love to anyone else I haven't mentioned. Hope everyone is doing as well as possible in this crazy First Tri!

Hello Everyone

I "officially" got my BFP today and Kirstin has kindly persuaded me to join you. I say officially as I took the first test last wednesday at 13DPO and it was positive, tested again on Sat and the line was really strong so although today was my OTD I have been lurking in the background for a few days. I am, obviously, over the moon but really nervous at the same time as I had a miscarriage in Nov at around 8 weeks (although the first scan picked up that things weren't developing well). I was pretty unlucky at I picked up swine flu when I was about 5 weeks pregnant and then that quickly developed into pneumonia and I became really quite ill. I wasn't surprised when things went wrong after that so I do keep telling myself that it was just an unlucky event but I guess I could easily be unlucky twice. My first hurdle that I really want to reach is the first scan which is on the 24th March (I will be almost 7 weeks at that stage). The 1st scan last time was when my world started to fall apart so I will be really nervous on that day.

As for symptoms, well I have been feeling really strong symptoms from day one - started to feel dizzy about 3 days after transfer (2 blasts) and I have been absolutely exhausted for about a week now. I wake up every morning with my tummy rumbling. I am bloated which is worse in the afternoons. Bigger boobs etc.

Can I just ask you a question? Are you all working as normal? I am back to work (only took 3 days off around the transfer time) but I am so tired that I am finding it really hard to last through the day. The problem that I have got is that I have got a major event at work in about 10 days and I am really busy planning for this. I don't want to tell my boss about being pg but am starting to feel like I will have to as I really can't cope with working long days. What do you think?

Look forward to getting to know you all in the coming weeks and months.

Ros - CONGRATULATIONS!! looks like we got our BFP at around the same time. How are you feeling?

Lousie - Wow 2 lovely little heartbeats! how fantastic!

Yes ladies I know I am being a silly so and so as I am only 5 weeks, I think that because I have been pregnant before that I expect it to be exactly the same and have the exact same feelings.
