Anyone due late November?


Hey ladies! I just found out I'm pregnant this weekend and I haven't had my doctor's appointment yet, but my calculations say I'm due around Nov 22! I'm so anxious about everything, but DH works a lot and I'm the first of my friends to get pregnant (and it's too early, we haven't told anyone yet), so I don't have anyone to really talk to!

Thanks, I'm in there! There's a lot of ladies in there though, so I was hoping to find a buddy or two here

According to the calculators, my due date is also 22nd November! I have my first doctor's appointment tomorrow. I am not sure if I will get an early scan or have to wait for a while.

I am also on the November Nuggets group

My DH also works shift work and we haven't told anyone yet either. When were you planning to? I think I will wait and see how it all goes. My sister's baby is due anytime now, so I was thinking of waiting a few weeks after he is born so I am a bit further along.

Ah! We're date twins!

The office I'm seeing now likes to see you when you're 6-8 weeks, so I have my first appointment scheduled for next Wed, the 30th when I'll be exactly 6 weeks. I'm thinking of calling them tomorrow though because I've been having these horrendous cramps in my lower belly area. Not fun.

DH knows of course, and so does one work friend of mine who knew when I was going to take the HPT. We're thinking of telling just the family, like parents and sibs, after that first doctor's appointment. We probably would have told them sooner, but I had two early mc's last year so I'm kind of worried about that. As to everyone else, we're thinking of waiting until after the first trimester like tradition says, which would be mid-May I believe.

how exciting! I am so glad to have a date buddy

My appointment was pretty straightforward, she told me what not to eat, don't drink alcohol etc and ordered some bloods. I will get my HCG level on Wednesday and if it is too low or too high, she'll order further investigations before referring me off to the OBGYN.

I assume the OBGYN will do my first scan as she has the equipment in her office...no idea though!

I would absolutely love to tell our parents in person, but we live 5.5 hours drive away and can't always travel. BUT my sister having a baby provides us with the perfect excuse! He's due 4th April, so maybe we'll travel up in May after our 12 week scan mid month and tell family then...

Hey! Did you hear from your doctor yet? And that sounds like a great time to tell your family! I said to DH the other day that I think I'd like to make our "public" announcement on Mother's Day. It'll be a smidge before 12 weeks, but it'll be right around there. ^_^ I'm so excited, I want to tell everyone now! *lol*

Hi Kelly! I'd love to have you as a bump buddy! It'll be my first as well, so we have a lot in common!

Yay! I definitely have cramps! Sometimes it's like period cramps, but usually it's worse my doctor said as long as I'm not bleeding, not to worry. Definitely feels unreal still and I got my bfp on the 12th. I think it will feel more real once we get that first u/s with a heartbeat
