Poppy, with my 1st we took my family out to dinner it was around fathers day and my mums b-day is the same week so thats why we took them out and we had wrapped up little baby bibs with 'I Grandma' 'I Grandpa' written on them lol they were so confused for ages my mum even put the bib on haha think they thought i was just calling them old. Untill they saw my brothers wife crying and my brother saying OMG my baby sister is pregnant lol I was 24 at the time but i think he was surprised since he was 40 and hadn't had children yet, but his wife was pregnant within the next year x x
Love it! I've started googling exciting ways to tell family. Haha
Hi Poppy, welcome! i'm from London and am 10wks and 2 days. Still haven't had my scan, so could be more or less than that.
We've been so excited we told pretty much all closest people already. The grandparents are happy like kids in a candy shop!! Both first time grandparents, so can understand their excitement i also had to tell my boss as was being totally useless at work, and the next day after being told she sent me packing up heavy boxes (and that's not even my job and hasn't been in the past 5 years)!!! Absolutely insensitive, but i refused and that was that!
H&H prsgnancy to you
where in London are you?
Can't believe your boss making u pack heavy boxes! Iv been very lucky with my boss but I'm a teacher and the school are very supportive with pregancies, babies, children ect.
I can't wait to tell everyone. We are going to tell our parents but we are going to try very hard to wait until 12 week scan
Hi Beee thanks and yes this is my first so very nervous! Congrats to you too.
Thanks for the reassurance about the cramps.
Poppy I am in Herts what about you?
Hey I'm Herts too! I will be at the Lister Hospital. I am 7 weeks on Tuesday and have my first midwife appointment on 10th feb. I had a doctors appointment last week and they just told me what not to eat, to take folic acid, took a urine sample to check for uti and confirm pregnancy. It was pretty basic. Not sure what happens at the midwife....... Had cramps loads but they are now being replaced by morning sickness.... Which I much prefer strangely!
I'm in welwyn so didn't have a huge amount of choice as the QE2 would have been my local and it no longer does maternity..... I had cramps non stop I hated them until about 3 days ago when the sickness began...... They were on the sides and in the middle. I also have bad back ache.
Hi, I'm new on here too. I think that I'm 5-6 weeks ish. I've been havi g quite bad pains in my left abdomen so I went to the doctor today. They've taken some blood and want me to go bak for a scan on Tuesday. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and tryin to stay positive but it's hard.
Hey! I'm new on here too!! Congrats to all who are also expecting!!! I got a positive test yesterday and I'm approx 5 weeks! Due date 1st october ish! I've only known I'm Pregnant for 2 days and it feels like a lifetime!!! I've had dull aches/pains since AF was due last week! I also had an ectopic 11 years ago so I'm a proper nervous wreck!! Had bloods done this morning they came back as expected for 5 weeks gotta have follow ups on Tuesday so see if they have risen then book an early scan in! I know everyone says its normal to cramp but it doesn't make it any easier does it?! Or is that just me?! I'm forever weeing and Everytime I go I expect to find something bad... Which I haven't!! Someone please tell me This anxiety goes at some point!! I'm also a teacher and hoping the distraction of school 2mrw will help!! I'm thinking my lack of sleep isn't helping with anxiety either! Can anyone else just not stop thinking about it??!!!!
