Thank you Ko, I cannot wait! Praying everything is OK, I'm feeling better with the virus too, don't know what that was all about, felt awful for a day, the heat is horrendous here though

Hi ladies!! How are you all doing?

We are having dinner with a few of our very close friends tonight and we've decided to announce our pregnancy. I figured that if anything happens after this point, we'd let them know anyway. It's feeling so real now but I'm terrified at the same time. I know our risks of miscarriage after this point are pretty low but the fact that it's never zero is just scary..

Also, I need your advice - we're getting together with 2 other couples and a guy. One couple is currently 14weeks pregnant (they got pregnant on their first month of trying). The other couple has been trying for about 7 months now (they're both 30) and I think the wife is starting to feel a little anxious and the husband talked to my DH about how TTC is getting a bit stressful for them... do you think we should tell them privately rather than to the whole group?? to me 7 months is nothing but the anxiety of trying and not working is stressful at any stage..

What do you think?

Sorry for the long post.

October, how are you feeling? Will you have another scan on Tuesday? Try to not to worry although we all know it's easier said than done, your Dr sounded reassuring x

Ko, that's a difficult one, do they know you have been going through treatment yourself? I agree 6/7 months isn't long but everyone obviously feels different about how long they begin to worry, I would say they sound like they would be OK with you saying as a group as might think there is something to worry about if you tell them separately?

Hi ladies, does anyone have days when they don't feel anything or don't feel pregnant? Yesterday and today I have felt normal and it's making me paranoid. I could also drink tea when I had gone off it and with dd couldn't drink it for over 2 months, I don't know how I'm going to get through the next 5 weeks til the next scan arghh!

Hope you're all well and having a good weekend

Today I've pretty much been in all day, dh got up with dd and went for an early walk so had a nice lie in, th en Ive just been out with me 3 sisters and 2 friends from work to a Mediterranean place for dinner, was very nice but it's strange not drinking so came home 9pm and left them to their cocktails!

star - I ended up just announcing to the crowd. I could see that our friends weren't as excited as the others (for obvious reasons) so I felt kind of bad, but then again, I've been trying for SO LONG I needed to enjoy that moment as much as possible. Maybe I'm selfish.. :/

and yes, there are days I don't feel pregnant at all!! I use those days to get stuff done and eat as much as possible!!

Ko you're not selfish at all, you've been through alot and you deserve to enjoy announcing, it's not like you weren't thinking of them as you asked us here what we thought too, thank you for the reassurance, I was hungry all day yesterday ans ended the day with half a roast chicken out for my brother's birthday and a chocolate brownie and ice cream haha

koj- I agree with star, you deserve to have that moment after everything you've been through. Hopefully your friends will have their moment soon and when they do, you'll be happy for them.

star- I'm having such an easy pregnancy too, it's a little freaky sometimes. And there are definitely days when I barely feel pregnant at all. But then there are days like today when my boobs are killing me and I'm so tired I feel like I'm about to drop and I've peed like 6 times already this morning.

I had a dream we had a baby boy last night! DH and I have both been thinking girl so our dream versions were very surprised lol. This is actually the first baby dream I've had since I got pregnant, so that was really neat. I changed his diaper and dressed him in jammies and we were cuddling. It was so sweet.

Star- the only pregnancy symptom I have is nausea (no vomitting). However, it only happens after I eat a big meal and it takes forever to digest. Other than that no real symptoms.

KOJ- I would have announced to the crowd as well. You are definitely not selfish! Infertility treatments are hard work. you definitely deserve to have your moment after trying trying to conceive

Scooby- I've had a dream of having a boy. I would really love a mini me but after all we've been through , I just hope for a healthy and happy baby to cuddle and love on.

I had another scan today and the tear is healing and the clot has shrunk tremendously. Bedrest was so hard but worth it. I'm on light duty and will have another scan on next Friday. Baby is measuring 8 week, 5 days and heart rate 166bpm. I can finally exhale and breathe. My last appointment with RE is next week. Moving on to OB. It's a bittersweet feeling. Oh! 1 more week on PIO.

So glad it is all clearing up for you October, what a relief!
I've got nausea on and off but haven't been sick , as soon as I moan about not having symptoms they come back again!

Midwife tomorrow!

Dh found a lump in his groin yesterday, it's small but going to drs today, I'm trying to not to stress but for someone who worries about everything I'm finding it impossible not to , just praying it's nothing , need to stay calm!

October- I'm so happy to hear that everything is ok! Must have been very scary. I'm jealous of all of your scans lol. It's been 2 weeks since I've seen Moobley and I'm going nuts! Post a pic when you can

star- Oh no, I hope DH is ok! Try not to worry... it's almost always just a cyst or something like that. Will the midwife listen for the heartbeat? How exciting!

AFM, getting bloodwork tomorrow and trying not to be nervous. I feel like everything is okay but seeing that progesterone level go up would give me way more peace of mind! I guess I sort of have a hard time believing that my body knows what to do because we struggled for so long to get here...
