That's so wonderful!!!

I can't wait for my appointment. Its next Wednesday, so one week to go. I'll be 5 weeks 2 days. I hope they do an ultrasound but I don't know if they will. I've been going to my ob/gyn for years, so maybe he'll help me out

Okay so I thought we might start with a kind of 'getting to know you' type Q&A. I know it's a bit cheesy and we already know eachother but i guess lots of info can get swallowed up in big threads so this might just make it all a bit clearer for all of us. I'm making these questions up as I go along so please feel free to offer up any other suggestions.

1. Name?

3. Married or partner?

8. Thing you are most excited about over next 8 months?
9. Thing you are most scared about?
10. Describe yourself in 5 words?

I know these Qs are kind of personal but I guess that's kind of the whole point of getting to know people. I'll go first but please feel free to not answer any of the questions or add your own. Xx

Hi Katina, yeah you have the same due date as us and it's still pretty early into our wee group so yeah that's fine. Welcome when did you get your bfp?

AFM - so I've had a pretty crap day all thanks to my supposed best friend. It's such a long story but to cut it very very short she has ditched me as her bridesmaid for being pregnant! I told her I would cover all dress costs etc but no, she didn't so much as say congrats just told me she couldn't believe how selfish I could be and why couldn't I just let her have her day! (Not entirely sure how me being pregnant stops her having her day?) she knew we were ttc and never outwardly said it was a problem although she has been really bitchy and off with me of late and I wondered if it was abut that. Who needs enemies with friends like that eh

Today my only symptom is exhaustion. I'm so tired. However, I am also super bloated today. I'm still temping every morning. I feel like this is the only way I can be sure baby is ok right now. My temps are still staying high so it makes me feel good.

I'm also monitoring my caloric intake. My BMI is low, so I need to be sure I'm getting enough calories to sustain both of us, especially on the days I'm running. Right now I'm not supposed to add a ton of extra calories so I'm just making sure I'm getting there or a little over.

I'm glad you ladies are doing so wonderfully! I pray all the time that the little bean sticks and we have a happy, healthy baby.
Good on you with the calorie monitoring! And the running! I've been so exhausted too - when I get home from work I'm good for nothing other than dinner, bath and bed! Still not had much in the way of nausea and I'm now getting to the stage where I want it (how twisted is that haha!) just so that I have a clear sign that I am pregnant! Still doesn't feel real! Xx

Thank you got the warm welcome malemeamammy I found out I was pregnant 10piui on VALENTINES DAY I made it very special when I told OH it was just wonderful!

That really upsets me that you have a friend that would treat you that way. I have someone in my wedding who will be nine months pregnant and I wouldn't have it any other way! Not much of a friend I say! Cheer up buttercup it's not good for your little bean .

P.s. I love that we share due dates!!!!

momofimaking2 - Welcome to our little group! Congrats on your BFP.. February is just wonderful! yay!

Makemeamammy - Honey that is so terrible! I must say i have heard of this kind of behaviour before.. I mean, women telling their BM's that they cannot be part of the wedding if they are pregnant. It is really superficial.. Its her loss at the end of the day.. what i find even more horrible is that she didnt even congratulate you! WHAT THE HELL!? Is she crazy? I am sorry hun - she is clearly not worth it.. I can see she is jealous of you.

There wasn't very much to see at all, and probably not until 6+ weeks, but it doesn't hurt to ask! It's one of the good things I've found about consultant led care like they have in Spain as opposed to midwife led care in the UK. Here the ob-gyn's have their own machines, so you get regular ultrasounds instead of being sent to the hospital. And for the 20 weeks scan, you typically get sent for a 4D scan here. If you get the opportunity to get one, go for it!

OMG - how horrible! Maybe she is also slightly jealous to have found out you are expecting. We're here for you though!

For anyone who doesn't quite have the dedication to calorie count, the 300 calories extra you will need is roughly a bowl of cereals or a chocolate bar - not quite the "eating for two". Obviously the first helps keep your blood sugar more constant and fills you up more!

I am really tired too, but with a toddler I don't get the chance to just eat and go to bed like I could last time! I left the house at 7:30 this morning to get to the doctor's, went straight to work until 14:30, left to get DD, popped home for our snacks, took her to her swimming lesson whilst I chilled out in the cafe, then home, dinner for her, bath, feed and bed - never as easily as I hope. DH has made my dinner and it is now 22:45 here and I can't wait for my bed!

It hasn't sunk in for me either yet!

Welcome Katina! It's so exciting to have others who share the same EDD

Mamms what a b word!!! I know its tough but I think you will be glad to be rid of her. I hate drama and find its more work not to like people and be angry than its even worth! Just hang in there and you'll learn who your true friends are! They will be the people who scream and jump up and down when you tell them

Emma I feel the exact same way! I'm so exhausted at the end of the day.

Unfortunately I'm taking Calculus 2 right now, am grade level chair for mathematics at my school, love to run every day, and I am coaching soccer (or football for my UK/European lovelies) I have so much I want to do I'm trying to just force myself. And it all accumulates to the fact that I'm really too scared to share the news with people in case we miscarry. Boo! I'll be happy when I'm on summer vacation! That will take a lot off my plate!

On top of that I found out what my nausea trigger is. Sweets! I was having a piece of cake for my co-workers birthday and I thought I was going to lose it! Luckily my best friend noticed and she grabbed some pretzels for me! Pretzels are my saving grace right now!

Good morning ladies

Is anyone feeling sick in the stomach/vomiting yet? i know they normally say that starts at 6 weeks but i swear i have had a little bit of upset stomach already..

Also i caved and booked in with a GP to get some blood work done before my OB appointment - I am so scared that i will miscarry again so will do blood work over the next week to ensure HCG is climbing.. I couldnt help myself.. SO much for being calm and forgetting about it for a couple weeks... *sigh* I pray its all good for everyone..
