Anyone else pregnant with their 4th?


So we just got a surprise bfp! We weren't planning on another for awhile. I'm still nursing our 17 month old at night so I kept telling myself my period was late because of that or the new work out program or stress but nope. 3 tests with very strong lines. Oops! Babies are a blessing though so we will make this work! I'm already nervous though with the cramps and back ache! Also nervous about having 4..i hope I can manage! anyone else??

Wow that will be amazing and busy!!! Congratulations to you too!! Our age gaps might be easier.. Ours will be 7, 5 and 2 when this little one arrives! I'm super nervous but getting more excited as it sinks in.

Remind me though... Cramps and back aches are normal? I feel like yes but having had two early losses everything makes me paranoid about everything haha I'm still waiting for nausea to kick in. It started badly with all the others by 6 weeks lol

I'm sorry about your losses. Honestly what your feeling is totally normal. My back is always bad pregnant or not but the cramps have been awful. I've been so sure AF would arrive. Wish my sicknsss would go away though, too early to call it yet but it's looking like I will have hg like in my other pregnancies. Started meds so hoping gircit to improve really soon.

Thank you for the reassurance! That's exactly what it feels like. I'm sooooo sorry to hear about the sickness! I can't even imagine that especially while taking care of 3 other little ones! I hope the meds help!

I usually start getting the nausea (which I know is nowhere near what hg is!) at 6 weeks.. So far only tiny bits of it here and there so either I'm earlier than my estimation (might be possible since I'm unsure when ovulation was exactly) or hoping it will be easier but not holding my breath on that lol

Hi ladies number 4 for me too... I'm so anxious this time every pain etc sends me into overthinking... I had a major bleed at week 6 didn't even scan me said miscarriage 4 weeks later I felt so ill they scanned me and there was bean waving at me on the screen.
12 week scan on Tuesday then I can relax a little.
I'm secretly really excited though 😁.
Congrats to you both ladies xx

Hopefully you will be lucky and avoid it. I didn't get much sickness in my last pregnancy. Was bliss after my other pregnancies.

Do you have any idea yet when you will be due? At the moment my EDD is 14th match. My birthday is on the 9th so it will be a lovely present.

Could congratulations cKelly. The exact same happened to me with my first. Major bleed 6 weeks. Was Told i miscarried but then got admitted into hopital 4 weeks later because of stomach pain and they found my boy. One of the best days of my life. Hope your scan goes well!

I'm expecting #4. I found the jump from 2-3 so hard I'm hoping this will be a breeze!
I'm doing ok. Loads of really bad nausea and been spotting a lot. I needed a scan at 7 weeks due to passing loads of clots two big ones. But scan was great showed baby with a strong hearbeat but a week behind what I thought I was. I did have a mc back in Jan so I'm still very nervous xxx

Yay! I'm so excited for you ladies!

Ckelly, I'm so sorry you've had so much to worry about already! Your story is amazing. Your sweet baby held on!

Maryanne, according to my lmp my due March 5th but I only had 3 periods since having our last and they weren't perfect as far as days apart so I'm not 100% sure on it. I could be a week off since I wasn't doing well tracking ovulation and things like I usually do lol of course.. The one month I got lazy haha

That's amazing that happened to you too! I'm thinking next time if I'm told I had a loss, I'll insist on a scan. Never know! I'm so happy it's worked that way for you ladies though. It must have been so devastating to think one thing and a huge switch of emotions when you found your sweet baby still there!

Kirsty, I'm so sorry to hear about all the worry so far I'm so glad your little one is hanging in there! Are you getting to rest much?? Do you have anyone to help a bit?

Nordicpixie, congrats! So exciting to have another little one and 4 is an amazing age for an older sibling. Our middle daughter was 3.5 when our youngest was born and it was amazing to see how exciting and into the baby she has been!

Is anyone here nervous about announcing?? It will be awhile but if I start to show early this time, I'm afraid I'll have to tell earlier and in a way I'm dreading it. My family is so unbelievably judgemental and all in our business but they don't live far and we do see them as they are good with the kids and only seems fair. There is no contact with my husbands family after a falling out so feel like my kids should have grandparents. But anyway.. If you aren't nervous still share! What is everyone planning to do to announce??
