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!
I love calculus (!), after my Physics degree I considered teaching maths but at the time they wouldn't allow such a transfer (now they do - typical).

Don't put yourself under too much pressure in these early days, you're exhausted because your body is working overtime to try and get a new life started. I once read about a lady who described it to her husband saying it was like climbing a mountain each day! You must rest when it becomes too much. It is safe to continue doing the things you usually do but don't push yourself too hard. The baby gets all your resources first, but that can leave you short - you don't want to make yourself ill.

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..
It was one of the reasons I took my test at 12DPO! I have been feeling queasy already, the last few days it has been quite noticeable at times. I can't remember when it began last time, though it can start earlier than 6 weeks, that's just the average.

Ginger is good to relieve the symptoms, whether you eat ginger biscuits (I mean British biscuits - cookies!), or drink ginger teas.

It might be why when asked what I wanted to eat last night, I said I wanted something with rice - like Thai curry... Also it is usually worse if you get hungry, so maybe save some of your lunch to eat in the afternoon. My biggest issue at the moment is that only working 5 hours a day I am not entitled to a break, so I drive an hour to get to work, and hour to get home and end up 7 hours without more than a snack I can gobble up at my desk. I have to think of something...

There is nothing I can say that will stop you worrying. We're all probably worrying with you, but with your mmc I can guess it must be on your mind even more. I think you are doing right with getting the blood work and hope everything goes well.

I'm also getting the odd hot flush. Anyone else?

Actually I have one thing which I guess only Katina may be thinking about now, and that is having two children. Something my husband jokingly said has settled in my head and I can't seem to shake it.

I'm one of four children (the eldest by a long way) and love it, I always said I wanted 2 or 3 of my own. However, I love my DD so much, I'm still amazed at all the little things she's learning to do as she's growing up and suddenly I wonder if I can be a good mummy to more than one child. I always said you get more love to share around, you don't split the same amount between more people. But now I am scared.

Haha! This thread for the next few weeks is just going to be full of zombie women!! I spoke to the midwife today and I am going to book an appt for 6th March! Can't wait! I'm so excited!!

I am wishing I would feel sick because the only symptom I really have is tiredness and some serious bloating (feel like I'm already hiding a bump). At least if I felt sick I could convince myself I am actually pregnant and get over my POAS addiction (clearblue and IC done today alone ) I need to see a therapist!

Thank you all for your support re my supposed best friend! She has been weird with me ever since I told her we were ttc (she asked me to guarantee I wouldn't get preg and I told her I couldn't but would cover any costs involved) she said ok at the time but has been weird with me since. Out it all came yesterday. How I'm selfish and couldn't respect her wishes and have put her in 'planning hell' (dresses aren't even bought yet by the way!) she kept going on and on over text so in the end I just said leave me alone,I don't need this stress right now to which she replied calling me a sad, pathetic, lonely bully!!! All for getting pregnant!!!! really hurt and upset but a bit relieved too that it's over with as I feel like I've been walking on egg shells round her for months now!

How is everyone doing? I am so bursting to tell people, it's so difficult to keep quiet! Xx

SHE called YOU that?! I think that's that psychological thing where people push their feelings about themselves onto someone else. I'd have to ask MiL what the term is! It sounds like she isn't happy anyway.

I feel a bit queasy and it isn't really helping it to sink in, spare yourself!

I have told a few people now. A school friend who knew I was TTC, her first baby was due a week before mine (but I beat her to it) and her second is due in two weeks. My Grandma, my Mum, I'm trying to get hold of my Dad this evening. I also told a lady who's daughter swims with mine as she's 7 weeks pregnant. I think my DH is planning on telling his parents this weekend. Oh, and a close friend from work back in the UK office who has been TTC for about a year and having fertility investigations. She knew we were TTC another one and we've been discussing it quite regularly.

Despite already telling so many people it's bursting to get out!

Oh mammy, forget her, you need to stay relaxed and certainly don't need that crap at this exciting time!

I've told 4 people, but not my folks yet which is the hardest one as I want to tell them face to face but they live far away. My sis ordered me Dr Miriam Stoppard book which arrived today so have lots of reading to do! :-D

I am going to wait till 12 weeks to tell everyone - so far only my husband, mum, sister and boss know.. I have sworn them all to secrecy... I need to make sure everything is ok - i had a dream last night that I had another miscarriage.. awful.. obviously I am thinking about it a lot..

Meanwhile - cotinuing to POAS doesnt do much once the test line is darker than the control line does it?? I stopped because I thought the tests were just going to look the same from now on as they have made the ink go as dark as it can..? I did a digital today and was hoping it would say 3+ weeks (so put me above where I am) but it came back with 2-3weeks.. ah well - it is still good and accurate I guess... Blood tests this afternoon will get the ball rolling!

I have no symptoms yet - only a bit of fatigue, sore boobs and bloating/gas (eew!) I know what you mean when you say you kind of wish you were sick so you could be certain it was real! lol

I am so excited to progress over the next 8 months with you ladies - i know this is a bit FAR FETCHED right now - but has anyone had any thought as to whether they will find out the sex of the baby when its time??

I've thought about it! I'm such an impatient person that I think I would like to but DH thinks it should be a surprise. My only concern about knowing is that I will subconsciously buy stuff more suitable for that sex rather than neutral (I plan on having more kids so should really get neutral). What about you? Anyone else thought of this? Xx
