I know! It's so great to have people going through it at exactly the same time. Kind of makes it even more exciting! Xxx

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.
I love Calculus as well! It's my favorite math so far. As for doing to much I'm trying to take it easier. Normally I would work out 5-6 days a week and I think I'm going to cut back to 3-4 days for now. Honestly, running makes me feel so much more energized in the morning...but by lunch I'm done!

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.
Fortunately that's not something I have to worry about this time around; however, Emma, I'm sure you are going to be a fantastic mom to both of your babies!!!

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
You're right! I know I definitely feel like a zombie! I'm so tired! By 10:30 in the morning I'm just exhausted. It's a little frustrating because, as a teacher, I feel off my game. I had to literally sit in an empty desk group and have the kids come to me with their questions as I was so tired! I feel like they think I'm being lazy and I wish I could tell them why but its just way to soon!

As far as your friend, I agree with Emma. She sounds absolutely bonkers! And you were totally right in distancing yourself from the drama and stress.

I really want to tell people, I'm excited to, I'm just scared. I don't want to have to deliver the news that we miscarried after we tell people we are pregnant. I just mostly want to tell my family...I just don't want any leaks on facebook. I'm starting to not like that thing very much!

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'm waiting until 12 weeks to tell most people as well. I have a list of when I'm going to tell particular people...I know I'm crazy. I just don't want to forget the people that I want to tell myself so they don't hear about it on facebook. My family is at the "after our first ultrasound" mark. The rest of my close friends and family are at the 12 week mark and facebook people are at the 13 week mark.

I'm also super excited to see ultrasounds!!!! As for finding out the gender...I kind of wanted it to be a surprise but DH says no! He wants to know what to expect. And with the silent nervousness he has going on right now, I've decided to go with it.

Haha jbell 'silent nervousness' sums it up so well! My hubby is excited but very quiet the last week :-)

I really want to find our gender! I want a boy personally, but will obviously be overjoyed whatever happens. Bonus of having a girl though means I have tons of hand me downs from family and friends as seems to be girls everywhere!

Feel so stupidly tired, I go to bed at 9 every night atm!

Don't worry hun! It's just hormones. You will get double the love. I bet when you had your DD you got a rush of love for her that's stayed ever since? The same will happen when you have this one, he/she will give you their own personal 'love rush' so you'll have more than enough to go round xxx

What a horrible dream.

I won't be telling anyone else until at least 12 weeks.

When I was expecting DD I had convinced myself I was going to have a boy. We wanted a surprise though and when I went for my scan the doc just told us she was a girl before I'd even got comfortable - for her it was a reflex action - barely anyone in Spain goes through the pregnancy without finding out. I was absolutely shocked, I managed to get through the rest of the scan, then left the building and burst into tears. The thing is I didn't mind either way but I'd spent the first half of the pregnancy imagining a little boy! I will probably find out this time too so that I am mentally prepared and can daydream!

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
I compromised, when I bought vests, babygros and things I bought 1 pack of neutral and one girly one (not that I am a very girly person but I found I couldn't resist!). I didn't buy a lot more than that for the first few months and was glad I didn't, they only wear things for a few weeks before they've grown out of them. All the bedding, pram, cot, etc, are neutral so I can easily use them again.

I'm impressed you have that much energy!

"Silent nervousness" LOL! When I finally got pregnant with DD, my DH went absolutely crazy. i don't mean shouting and things, but huge mood swings, never good, going from "Oh, woe is me, I have to grow up, I have lost my youth", to not wanting to talk about it at all. It was really horrible and really weirdly almost broke us up. It was at 16 weeks when my bleeding started and I was ordered to rest, not drive and not travel to Spain immediately that all of a sudden he came around. I was staying with family in Bristol as he'd been on a stag weekend and he made his parents who had just driven from Sheffield to pick him up from Norfolk and driven back (a 5 hour return trip) come and rescue me from my family (who as much as I love them really do my head in with fussing), which was a 6 hour return journey.

This time he is much more interested. He blames his strangeness last time on the fact he was working away in Spain already, so missed almost all of the first trimester. He couldn't be a better Daddy though!

I went to bed at 10 pm last night but am still exhausted, today I have a stinking cold and a migraine as well which isn't helping my overall mood.

Emma I'm so glad your DH came around! It's amazing how men react differently to finding out their lives will be changed forever. He did seem to save himself quite well by coming to rescue you! How chivalrous! Also, I can't believe your doc just blurted out the sex like that. I would have been quite perturbed.

I do want to find out the sex and I'm hoping for a boy. Not for any reason in particular other than I can't find any girl names that I truly love and DH and I have had a boy's name picked out for as long as I can remember. But honestly, I really don't mind which. I will be excited either way.

As for the bedtime, I went to bed at 9 last night as well. That was after falling asleep on the couch at 8:30! My gosh I feel so ridiculous being so tired all the time. It's hard to remember that our bodies are working overtime on a special surprise for us I'm trying to be grateful for the symptoms though. A lady at school found out she just had a miscarriage. Its sad business. She was a co-teacher with me last year and she is just wonderful. I feel very sad for her.

I'm scared too, my heart is consumed with my daughter how does it grow more?

Have any of you ladies contemplated midwife vs. OBGYN?
