Welcome newbies! It's definitely an anxious time and I keep expecting I'm going to see blood and for it to all be over. I'm trying to just enjoy each day that I'm pregnant.

And symptoms wise, really tired and getting tired very quickly. I've been having a nap most days. Sore boobs and they've grown (they were already big enough ). A little bit of nausea and upset tummy. I vomited once. A few cramps and sharp, pulling feelings.

I rung and left a message for a midwife but nothing's open. It makes life hard when you get your BFP over Christmas/new year haha

I hope you're all doing well!

Hello ladies! Congrats on your BFPs. I am due 5 September. I too am so terrified that I will see blood. We've been trying for a really long time so I'm cautiously excited. I can't wait to have my appointment, i think that'll really make it real.
My symptoms; SUPER sensitive nipples, pains in entire breast for a short time earlier today, increased appetite, increased tiredness, mild cramps and tugs, a tad bit nauseous but it seems OH has taken my morning sickness lol.
Happy and Healthy 9 months to us!

Congrats to us all on our BFP!!! My EDD is 9/3/17, super excited and nervous as we currently have a 1 year old. Counting down the days till 1/19/17, first doc appoint, should be almost 8 weeks so we should be able to see & hear our little bean.
This time around the MS is kicking my but, comes at any time of the day or night and says here I am!! I am also having a lot of heartburn and toothaches along with the random tightness and cramping and the tiredness started very early on. Besides that doing fabulous!!! Happy and Healthy 10 months to us all!!!

Welcome everyone who is new. I had my obgyn appointment today and she did a transvaginal scan. It's hard to pinpoint my dates because if we counted the first day of my last cycle, I would be in the second trimester already lol (I won't go into details, but like lots of you, it's been a long journey to get to this point, but let's focus on the positives for now!) She thinks I'm 5 weeks 5days today (Tuesday) which is what I estimated myself.

Scan all went well. Didn't quite hear a heartbeat - she said I was just on the cusp of hearing it but probably just a matter of a day too early. It was still really amazing, though, as I don't think I quite believed it till now - I still can't quite believe it now, apart from some of the symptoms. Nearly threw up when brushing my teeth this morning! PLus, I'm struggling to keep my bowel movements regular if you get what I'm saying? Any second time mums on here have any natural suggestions to help with that?

Hope everyone and their little beans are doing well xx

A good probiotic will really help with regularity. My midwife recommends Florijen 3 because it's use on pregnant women has been studied, but any of them really should be safe.

Welcome newbies,

I spoke with my midwife and she thinks my EDD is probably end of august but I'm going to stick with you ladies because I think it's probably start of September based on when I O'd.

Webby, can't help sorry, I'm having the opposite problem!

Anyone else's boobs grown? Mine feel like they're nearly twice the size.

My bras are definitely a little snug! They ballooned with my first.

Hi All, update from me:

Ended up going for an ultrasound today because I starting having some really bad pain down my right groin area accompanied with some bleeding. I'm 6 weeks today. Thankfully, all is fine and we got to hear the heartbeat (though, it seemed a bit low in my mind) which was nice and bit reassuring. They said the bleeding is probably old implantation blood since it's more brown in colour and that the bad pain (which is still really painful as I write) is probably old scar tissue from surgery (I've had to surgeries in that area) and endometriosis. My last surgery was in October so they said that that specific area is probably feeling tender and aggravated from a growing uterus. She said that it might end up being an issue throughout the pregnancy. I've been told to rest and take it easy this weekend.

I'm glad everything is okay, I really am, but the whole experience has freaked me out a bit and made the possibility of something going wrong more real.

Hope the rest of you are doing okay xx

Sounds scary! I'm glad to hear everything is OK, and I hope the pain isn't too bad.
