I am officially 5 weeks this week (hooray!). I've been a little m.i.a. lately due to some stressful family stuff going on. I'm just trying to stay as positive and relaxed as I can. I have an ultrasound set up for the 28th of this month (I'll be about 7 weeks). I am really excited and will be relieved I think, once I get there.

I really haven't been dealing with any symptoms. With DD, I had so many by this point, but not this time around. I feel pretty normal. Fx that stays that way! (I had hyperemisis with DD).

Glad all seems ok Hmcx!

Mrs B - that's exciting that you have an ultrasound coming up soon. do you have to pay for that ? I'm thinking about getting a private scan at 7-8 weeks for reassurance . Will cost me 60 if I decide to xx

I'd love to have a scan at around 8 weeks to keep me sane but we'd have to pay for it.

I'm still absolutely exhausted and feel like I'm not getting enough sleep. Luckily I'm a preschool assistant and we have the summer holidays off like the schools so I've been able to relax as much as is possible with a 3 year old. Pretty good timing really because I can't imagine how much more tired I'm going to feel after running around after 26 3 year olds!! By the time I go back to work I'll be 7 weeks so hopefully I might have a bit more energy. 😂

Symptoms wise still got loads!! Apart from the tiredness my boobs are still hurting every morning, still got the nausea (although haven't been sick yet), backache and the stretching/heavy feeling is still there.
Last night and this morning I've had a small pain right in the middle of my tummy, quite high up. No idea what it could be but it's not especially painful so I'm not worrying. I keep having to remind myself how normal some pain can be considering how much your body is changing! You forget how much you went through with the last one I think!

Shortstuff. I feel like you just described everything I'm feeling too, even that pain!

Are you in the uk? Where are you based?

Yeah I'm in Oxfordshire. Although originally from a town near Glasgow. You?

Glad it's not just me with the pain then!!
I am definitely more aware of everything this time round. Not sure if that's good though because I keep comparing this pregnancy to my last one. I had no symptoms at all until I was about 8 weeks. I'd never have known I was pregnant if it hadn't been for the missed period. This time is so different!!

I'm in Kent.

With my first we hadn't actually been trying, we had only been together for a year so the first I knew when I felt so sick every time I stood up and my boobs hurt.
I knew it was a possibility so took the test and got a nice surprise!

My daughter just turned 7 so it's so long ago too!

I'm more aware this time just because we were trying, so everything is "is that normal, is everything ok"

I'm doing daily tests!
And I'm going to pay for a scan at 7/8 weeks.
I had a look and where I went before its still 60 for an early scan

If you look on groupon you can get some good deals on packages

Oh I'll have a look! Would love to know I'd get to see LO in the next few weeks rather than waiting another 7.

Hi ladies
im 6 weeks and still cannot believe it. I have a 15 month old daughter. I dont have much symptoms. Am a bit nervous about this pregnancy. Praying that everything goes as it should be. I have a private scan at the end of this month and hoping to see my baby then.
Good luck to all of you

Well, at this time, I have private insurance that covers nearly all maternity costs 100%, so I will not have to pay for the ultrasound. I am very thankful for it. Honestly, if I had to pay out of pocket for it, I'd probably still do it just to see this little bean.
