First Timer looking for others in the first tri to chat


Hi everyone this is the first time Ive done a thread so here it goes, this will be my first and looking for others who are in their first Tri to chat along with through this journey about symptoms, issues, moans, news, photos, appointments etc..

So start saying who you are, your TTC journey, how far along you are and your due date

A bit about me:

Been with DH for 8 years, married for 5 yrs. Began TTC in Nov 2013, had 1 MC at 5wks in Sep 2015, went for all fertility tests we were diagnosed with unexplained infertility, had Clomid for 6 months all failed, one cycle of IVF using a fresh egg failed and now this an FET frozen embryo transfer and its worked. Pics are my progression the faint FRER and CB taken at 11dpo on 30/11/17, the darker FRER taken 2 days later 13dpo on 02/12/17 and CB digi taken at 16dpo 05/12/17. Your stories of getting preggo dont have to be as drastic as mine.

So contacted clinic I have my first scan on 28th Dec I will be 7wks and 4 days then so should hear a heartbeat x I am currently 4wks and 3 days.

Symptons so far bloated belly, constipation sorry TMI, boobs have gone huge DH loves it and feeling tired

Cant wait to read others comments and start this thread going xx

Hi there!

DH and I have been together for 4 years, married for 1 year. We got pregnant on our 3rd cycle of trying for our very first. I'm sorry to hear that you had to go through all that, but congratulations on the little bean I got a faint positive at 10 DPO, then a darker one at 11DPO. So, estimating my due date would bring me to August 15th and I am exactly 4 weeks along today!

I have also been EXHAUSTED beyond belief. I fall asleep at work, I nap once I get home. And oh god, do I feel bloated too, I didn't think I would this quickly! The boobs are also slowly getting there.

This feels like it'll be a long journey of learning. I mean, I thought I knew some things from reading, but every day I just realize how little I know. It's scary and exciting at the same time!

Here's to sticky beans!

I am not sure yet. Most places need a doctors note even if you pay for the early scan! I will see my doctor at exactly 10 weks on the dot.. so maybe I will wait until there. But if we can find a place that has no referral needed we might pay it up. I would love the peace of mind! What about you

Thank you! You too

Well because I got my BFP through IVF I go for an early scan which is on the 28th and if all goes well then I will be referred back to my local Drs for my 12 wk scan my midwife has already been in touch she seems nice. It is crazy it still feels surreal right now I'm just praying that this will be a sticky bean xx

Hey mind if I join? 👋🏻
My names Emma and been married to OH for only 2 months, but we’d been trying for 32 months before we got this BFP. Have had 3 early miscarriages previously so very nervous, but the time is passing quickly!
Already have a 4 year old DD.

I have a handful of symptoms; nausea, sore boobs, extreme fatigue (like seriously, I could sleep standing up!)
Hope you all have sticky beans and first trimester flies by

Welcome mammawannabe of course you can join everybody is welcome the more the merrier. Well I have everything crossed for you, I see from you sticker your 7 wks so far wgats the nausea like, have you told anyone yet and will you be getting an early scan dobe xx

No change today been looking at a thread though that gives statistics on a successful first tri and the later along you are the greater your chances increase so Im sure you have nothing to fear this time. At what weeks were your 3 MCs if you dont mind me asking does this time feel different xx

Hi ladies!

SO and I have been together 4.5 years, and we actually ordered an engagement ring a few weeks ago before we found out we were pregnant with #2! SO is the father of my first son, Alex, and the three of us live with my parents currently.

We were not trying to conceive, in fact, we used a condom, and when that failed, we got Plan B, but apparently this little nugget was very determined. We are quite excited to have another baby, and very happy that Alex and his sibling will be close in age to one another. We've decided that we're not going to find out the gender of the baby until he/she is born. We did with Alex, but we think it'll be a nice surprise at the birth with this baby.

I'm not sure how far along I am, as it is quite early. My period isn't even late yet, but I had a blood draw and it came back positive. I go back today to make sure the hcg is doubling. If it is, then my doctor said they would schedule my first appointment. I believe my due date will be sometime in mid-late August.

The nausea has been awful on some days and barely there on others. If I have nausea, it's pretty much all day and night - yuck!
So far we've told our best friend and my dad, and OH let it slip to his brother, but other than that, it's still a secret. We're waiting for the 12 week scan.
Not planning to go for an early scan because I know it wont reassure me. My friend had a scan at 6 weeks and everything was perfect, then she lost the baby a week later, but didn't find out til her 12 week scan, so I'd rather just wait it out and take all of my symptoms as my reassurance
But yeah, this time feels different. 2 of the previous MC were at 4 weeks - so very early. The first miscarriage, I was 2-3 weeks late before I took a test. The line was very faint, though, so I may have ovulated late. I think I was around 5 weeks that time. I had no symptoms with any of those, though. Only tested because we were trying and I knew when I was due. I have plenty of symptoms now At the moment, extreme fatigue is the worst!
