When are you due Lynnikins? Your boys in your pic are gorgeous! I am SO excited to see what mine and hubs babies will look like, all of the bubbas in both of our families are curly little blonde chubsters so I've got a good idea!
Lou, a christmas announcement sounds lovely. When we were trying last cycle, I kept fantasising about signing my mum's christmas card form the baby. I would love to give her a gift or something that she has to 'figure out' and see that moment of realisation on her face. I am addicted to announcement videos on youtube!
Bubbles, have you told any family yet?
I'm also addicted to the announcement videos!
We've not told anyone at all yet, still very nervous after our early loss in December, it doesn't quite feel real yet! I'd rather keep it to ourselves until we've had the ok at the 12 week scan, not sure how easy that will be but that is the plan at the moment!
Sorry to hear about your loss Bubbles, fingers crossed for an extra healthy sticky bean this time.
Do any of you regularly participate in other discussions or groups that you'd recommend? I find there's a lot of negativity on 1st Tri etc, but struggling to get into the ones in the Lounge as they get so huuuuge so quickly.
I just went and got myself some tickers, how exciting! Feel silly as I've not seen anyone else with 4week ones but I think they're rather smashing
Have you told anyone yet? Sorry if you mentioned earlier on and I've missed it.
Yay for your tickers! I think it's fine to have them from 4 weeks, I've seen plenty of others from 4 and even 3 weeks, I would've had mine sooner if I was a bit braver so I waited til 5. I'm hoping to add the fruits one too, love to see how the little bean is growing! I thought my DH would get more excited about me telling him our bean was the size of an apple seed now, but I think he just wants it to be the size of a baby already!
I'm in a few ongoing threads now as I've been on the forum a while, although they're mainly TTC groups or conversations I've been in through my journal and the journals of those who stalk mine. The first tri boards do seem quite negative sometimes and full of questions about bleeding or not seeing heartbeats at scans etc, so I'd like to avoid all those horror stories really but can understand it's a difficult time for some people and this is where they come for support and advice.
