Rach: No! I'm so sorry. *virtual hugs*

Kitten and MrsSnail: welcome to the brood

Sasha: how often are you testing? It took 8 days for my super faint to go psycho darker than control! You like pictures, don't you? I can tell by your avatar. ;p I'm an old Luddite and don't even FB. I definitely am trying to kick this pregnancy old school.

strezy: I've had insomnia for about a week, off and on but now I'm crashing all night and sleeping in

Huggles: my symptoms disappeared a few days ago but they came back--I read it's normal. That's why I did the IC, for peace of mind.



I'm finally home from dropping off Granny and then taking ice and gas to my parents. The few gas stations open have cops and lines a mile long! It's burning up and dad gave me lots of meat before it spoiled, lol. Hopefully electricity comes on soon.
I did tell them and they were excited; my mom pretended she knew all along and my dad is naming his newest baby calf after my desired boy name, LOL!


I have had more cramps today than the past few. I've determined it's the bean and ute growing! Tomorrow I do NOTHING!!

Hi everyone! I would like to join this group. I've read the thread so far to catch up - what a talkative bunch!

Rach, I'm so sorry about your news.

I had a positive frer Monday night, but didn't believe it because it was faint and could have been the remnants of the trigger shot. But yesterday and today, the lines have darkened and I'm scheduled to see my RE tomorrow for blood test to confirm. If all goes well, I would be due May 25, based on LMP.

So excited to join this vibrant group and I love the name!!!

Haven't heard about Mexico being extra dangerous but ill defo look into it before boiking I think Dominician Reupiblic is winning anyway.
For anyone considering Mexico or pretty much anywhere in the Caribbean I would warn against it due to the Zika virus. Pretty much any doctor will tell you to not to go because of the risks of getting bitten and what that could do to the baby and the birth defects it could cause.

Welcome to the new ladies and congratulations!!

Huggles I haven't had many symptoms at all. It makes me worry to no end. I have another beta tomorrow which should determine how things are so far. I have a scan booked for the 25th too.
Here's a question for any of you...anyone constipated? Lol. I am and it's making me crazy. You're not really supposed to take a laxative while pg so I'm looking for some natural aids (other than prunes-blech!)

Quite the opposite! I have IBS and when it says go...well, I'd better go and find a loo pronto!
My cramping ute has kept things going there, lol, but tonight I am on the diarrhea spectrum. I'm trying not to worry since I know constipation is probably around the corner...but my poor bungie is sore.

The bowel gods need to meet in the middle and give us both a break!

How did I forget about the constipation? It's funny though because when I first found out it was quite the opposite lol! But now it's a bit of a struggle iykwim? Been drinking loads of water to stay hydrated though.

Forgot to add that I'm thinking of taking a fibre supplement like Metamucil to help things along.

Welcome mrssnail and wicky.

RnW dried pears work quite well for constipation and taste loads better than. Prunes.

Thanks to those ladies whose symptoms also disappeared. Good to know I'm not alone in that. It's like week 4 was full of symptoms and week 5 suddenly nothing.

My tummy was also very loose the first week, but this week it seems to be going the constipatiin route.

If you do need something to help you along, movicol is safe during pg. It's a stool softener, not a laxative, so doesn't over stimulate the gut which is what's contraindicated in pg. My gyne suggested it to me with my first pg.
