Mrs W - of course you can join - welcome and congratulations!! That is such amazing news that you received your BFP from the most recent round of IVF. Yay! When is your next test/appointment? Also how old is your little one (I think you mentioned this is your second?)
Our daughter is 20 months old and a real firecracker - we conceived her via IVF and a natural BFP this time around!
Starlight I've done it the opposite way round to you then!! I conceived my dd first month ttc so we had no idea we would have fertility issues! My dd is 3 now so all being well we will have a 4 year gap. Much bigger than we wanted but so grateful to be pregnant now! Are you having an early scan?
Mrsmb will you have a scan at your appointment next week? I'm in the uk so it's a bit different here, usually the first scan is 12 weeks. However I'll book a private scan for 2-3 weeks time since I had ivf and I've also got a drs appointment booked for 23rd dec to ask for an early nhs reassurance scan as I've previously had a mmc at 12 weeks.
Morning ladies! Aww I am so happy this thread is thriving! thank you all for joining!
Mrs W 11- congratulations of the IVF BFP and welcome! I have added your details where abouts in the UK are you? I can't beleive I have over 6 weeks to wait until the scan. But waiting it out with you ladies and seeing how everyone is getting on will help Oh and great to see you haven't had any more scares Feeling strong symtpoms is always reassuring isn't it, I think it is the only time we are pleased to be feeling unwell
Mrs. MB - 6 days until your appointment, hopefully it will be here in no time!
Starlight2012 - Great news about the scan!it must have been lovely seeing baby and heartbeat, so happy for you.
We are going on a 2 night break to Rome friday 15th Jan, we got a cheap online deal (cheaper than staying in london!) and my husband has always wanted to go to Rome so we thought why not have to do things on a tight budget so I was happy we got a good deal.
Aww I love the idea of your daugter wearing that for the announcement!
So how are we all feeling today? I am bloated & I keep getting pain behind my c-section scar. It is very neat & healed well on the outside. The reason I feel I will have a planned C-section this time is because DS1 got stuck & after 2 hours of pushing I had to be cut & have vontouse delivery then DS2 was a week early, waters broke at home with meconium in, labour progressed very quickly then he was low on oxygen & had to be delivered urgently. Both times I have gone from 5cm to fully dialted in 20 minutes & they had to push ds2 back up the birth canal for c-section so given this, I feel my body just isn't capable of an unasisted, safe natural birth sadly. I am trying to tell myself a planned section is better as we can make child care arrangements & my husband can pre book the time off work but in honesty I HATED having it last time, the recovery was terrible & I was readmitted a few days later with severe haemorrhaging. As long as we have a safe baby I don't care what I have to go through so I will do what the midwife thinks is safest xx
Mrs.W thats why i joined this forum as well more friendly and welcoming environment to share feelings emotions and your thoughts
Starlight2012 i love the t-shirt it looks soooo cute!!! and a nice way to spread the good news
honeysuede doing a c-section is not that bad from what they have informed me yes its better to have a normal natural birth but when complications show up during delivery its safer for the child and the mother to have a c-section...
mine was determined at my last month Doc appointment even before i got preggo cause i have 3 small fibroids and the Doc told me that the only way for me to have birth is with a c-section cause i will have complications if i do it naturally or i had to make a surgery and wait 6 months to ttc .... so C-section it is just as long as the baby and me are fine
soo last night i got SO scared!! as i was sleeping and dreaming of rainbows i got up because i felt pain!! and though AF was coming i just run to the wc and nothing! my stomach was in so much pain it was so scary and that i started to
turns out when i called to tell them i will not go to work "school" today they told me there is a gastroenteritis-virus going on and a lot of people didn't go in today.. so i think i got it as well ... if it gets worse i will just call my Doc because my scan is on Friday i dont want to start calling him before my 1st scan
Morning everyone! Can I join too? Im 37 (going on 38) and we conceived our 4th month trying! EDD is Aug 15th. TBH, I didnt expect it to happen. Still trying to wrap my head around it.
So far, no real symptoms other than sore breasts and being tired. I wish I had m/s to assure me everything is going ok. Ive done nothing but worry this whole time. My first appointment isnt until Dec. 28th (7 wks) and it feels like FOREVER away!
Holliems - welcome! I have added you to the list
congrats on falling on month 4, and I know what you mean about taking time to wrap your head around it, even though this is my 3rd I still have to pinch myself sometimes. These first 12 weeks do feel like forever but it starts to go faster as it goes on I feel. I see in your signature you have 2 girls, how lovely! do they know you are pregnant yet? Not long until your appoitnment then which is good.
Arrow - yeah the emergency section I had with DS2 went well to start with but the recovery was very hard. I am a very active person too. All worth it for our little ones though I have had similar pains to what you have described and (sorry for too much info) felt very wet down there which has panicked me, sometimes it is just that I need to go to the toilet and other times it is like dull period aches but nothing else. I had similar with previous pregnancies so I assume it is little one burrowing in. Hope you feel better
So do any of you lovely ladies have a 'feelling' about what you might be having? I have 2 boys but I think this may be a girl. Of course I will be happy either way as long as it is a healthy baby, but just wondered if anyone had a feeling about it. With my first son I actually dreamt a few times of a boy with yellow blonde hair and that is exactly what I got we didn't find out with him but with DS2 we found out the sex & plan to this time too xxx
Mrs MB - yes final stretch of waiting. Just 6 more days!! Look forward to hearing about it
honeysuede - your Rome trip sounds absolutely divine. And I love a good deal so that makes it even better! hmmm boy or girl - for me it changes day to day as to what I think!!! So I guess I have no idea. With your two boys did you feel the same during pregnancy? Will you find out the sex or wait as a surprise?
Mrs W - yes we are opposites! Your daughter will be such a good helper when the baby comes a long I have three older brothers and we are 3 or 4 years apart from one another and it has worked out really well. That sounds like a good idea to book a private scan! When are you hoping to do that?
Arrow - how terrible you had those bad dreams! I also have been having really odd dreams since I found out I was pregnant. Must be the hormones!! How exciting you will have your first scan on Friday - how far along with you be??
Holliems - Congratulations and welcome!! We are here to help you pass the time I am in the same boat that I go between being excited followed by a lot of worrying!! I think it is all normal and thank goodness we have support in one another.
AFM, I am feeling very bloated like many of you. Also some cramps too. Today I was sitting my desk and felt something drip from my nose then realized my nose was bleeding! At least I was wearing a dark outfit, so it wasn't a huge mess. I had forgotten that my nose bled a lot during my first pregnancy. So downside, messy nose bleeds, upside is that it is another pregnancy symptom! Haha....
Thanks honey! Only my oldest daughter knows. I explained to her that it's early and pregnancies are never certain to result a baby in the end. (Just incase the worst happens) My youngest doesn't know. I'll tell her around 12 weeks when I feel I'm in the clear. She would be devastated if the worst happened so I'm really cautious what I say around her.
No feelings on what it is just yet. People are saying its a boy but who knows!
Well this group formed nicely 😁 hi to all! Hope your all feeling better than me 😩 feeling absolutely awful with nausea right now! Never had it with my first son, in fact I had no symptoms with him at all. I'm having a bath and going to get in bed by 8pm! Hopefully feeling better tomorrow as I need to finish my Xmas shopping! Are all you ladies finished? X
