Hello!
I got an early BFP as well- currently due 12th may!
Only myself and husband know for now. This is our second and with my lg we told family really early and decided we wanted to wait before telling family this time. If we can keep it a secret we will probably wait until 8 weeks as want family to know before we tell anyone else at 12 weeks.

So far I've been hit with extreme exhaustion. I don't remember this from last time. No sickness yet but I remember that hitting at 5 weeks last time so could hit anytime now.

Is anyone thinking about booking an early scan? I had one with my lg and think I will book another one this time.

I've just called and booked in with the midwife for the 5th October when I should be 9 weeks along. I feel like I'm being premature booking in with midwife but Im excited and wanted to get is sorted so I can sort my work diary out.

Please count me in- my EDD is May 13th (mothers day!).

I was a bit hesitant to join the group as I'm terrified that this bean won't stick. I started spotting/bleeding at 10dpo (which is normal for me with AF) and assumed I was out. I had a random temp spike at 12dpo so decided to test just to see if the spike meant anything and I got an instant BFP! I've been so scared the last few days as I've been bleeding and cramping since then but I've had a good strong line each day. I started using progesterone cream on Saturday hoping it would help as I'm pretty sure I have low progesterone (10 day LP each cycle). Today the spotting and cramping has stopped so I hope that is a good sign.

With it being the weekend and Labor day today, I haven't been able to see my Dr to get blood work done but I will be doing that tomorrow so keep your fingers crossed for me that my levels look good and are still rising.

Hi girls, I'm due #3 around 2nd of May. Had a MMC this time last year so feeling a bit all over the place, but cautiously optimistic.
That's a good sign your cramping and spotting has stopped JWC13! Little one was probably just burrowing their way in =)
So far had every symptom under the Sun, coming and going, but i' m trying not to panic. I was CRAZY moody last week but that has settled a bit (my OH is definitely happy about that one haha!).
Hope you ladies are all well!

Welcome everyone! I've added everyones EDD to the first post, please let me know if I've missed anyone.

Flourish- I think I'll book an early scan for 7 weeks. I had one with both my girls and found it so reassuring and kind of feel like I should!

I'm scared of miscarriage too I think everyone worries don't they. I've been fortunate enough to never have had a miscarriage and I've had two successful pregnancies and two healthy girls. I really have no reason to worry, but I can't help it. It sounds silly but I almost feel like because I've been lucky so far, I'm more likely to have one... do you know what I mean?

I hate this part of pregnancy, the knicker checking and worrying about every pain and cramp, arghh! Not feeling much yet except the odd bit of nausea, feeling tired and my boobs are killing!! Still getting the mild cramps as well, which I remember from the last two times.

I've booked a docs appointment for Thursday eve so I can get referred to the midwife. I also need to ask what I need to do as I'm on antidepressants (which I take for severe PMS) so I suspect that I'll need to wean off them. Anyone else booked any appointment yet?

I've emailed my midwives but need to call the office to update my info tomorrow morning, hopefully I can remember!

We have told both sets of parents, my SIL and a close friend. Still have a bit of family left to tell. I told them it was early but wanted to celebrate the baby whatever happens. We have had a mc before, and we didn't tell anyone we were pregnant so they only found out we had a mc, and it was all sadness when we told. I wanted them to be excited with us, even if we do end up having a mc again. I feel very positive about this pregnancy though. We waited a long time for me to get my period back after breastfeeding to get pregnant again so I feel like this baby is going to be healthy.

I haven't told anyone yet, not even DH, but he suspect something. I'm probably going to wait til AF is due.

Flourish< I don't think you're being premature booking for 9 weeks. Not sure where you're located, but here in the US they like to see you around 6-8 weeks, to confirm babies heartbeat. I'll be scheduling my appointment around that time.

Has anyone NOT told DH yet? And if so, how are you planning on doing so?

How are you all feeling? I'm getting waves of nausea and have sore boobs and AF type cramps, very similar to my other pregnancies this early on. Have you told anyone yet?
Oops. Left out my due date. According to my calculations (based on LMP), it's the 13th of May.

I have all the symptoms you describe, along with the occasional sharp pain low down in the abdomen, which i assume is something stretching. They've set in earlier for me this time than with my first.

Haven't told anybody yet, except for DH. I would prefer to get to the end of first tri, but will probably have to tell people at work sooner than that, due to the nature of the work I do. I'm going to put it off for as long as I can.

ETA: How is everyone dealing with the exhaustion? I was practically falling asleep on my laptop at work this afternoon.

I'm aware that it's really early days yet, so am trying not to worry. I don't know what it is about pregnancy that makes us worry so much, even those of us who are not normally anxious people. I might have mentioned on another thread that any time I find myself wondering about "what ifs", I take a step back and imagine holding the baby instead. At least it makes me smile.

I have told DH but i was really trying to think of a nice way to tell him. In the end I baught a box of his favourite millies cookies and left them on the kitchen side with a note saying 'If I am going to get fat then so are you ...'

It took him a few minutes to get it but then a huge smile broke out on his face (although not sure if that was realising I'm pregnant or that he had a whole box of cookies haha)

Hi girls, I am being brave and joining you all! I haven't been back here since my youngest was born in 2013, but I am having a PMA moment and I'm jumping back in! This is our 9th pregnancy and from those, we have been blessed with 3 amazing kids.
If all goes well, this little one should be due May 8th.
Symptoms-wise, I am soooooooo tired! A little bit nauseous in the evenings and majorly bloated, but otherwise, I'm doing good!x
