I just got back from the doctors. He confirmed I am indeed pregnant!! I have an ultrasound booked for tomorrow lunchtime for dating and to make sure bubs is where he/she is meant to be. Im terrified due to being diagnosed with blocked tubes due to extensive scarring that i am at high risk of ectopic pregnancy. everyone cross their fingers for a positive scan tomorrow xx
I have already told my Mum and sister. at the moment we are planning on telling our parents and siblings on xmas day, everyone else will be after we reach 12wks.
I may have to tell my boss sooner as i do alot of heaving manual labor at work and dont want to over strain myself.
welcome to all the new ladies - so glad to see the thread filling up and getting busy!!
Good luck to you all having scans!
As for telling people - we've not told anyone yet, well apart from you girls her and the girls from B&B from when I had my DD! Will probably tell my mum in a few weeks but then everyone else will wait till after the 12 week scan! This will be DH's 5th and after his 3rd he promised his mum he wouldn;t have anymore and then again solemnly promised after DD that that was it and he was off for the snip so not too sure how she will react, she said to me after I had DD that she had more than enough granchildren now and that I didn't need to have anymore now I have a girl and a boy!!!! Don't think his eldest daughters will take it too well either, they weren't impressed about DD and never ask about her or even really acknowledge that she exists! They're 14 and 11 btw!!!
As for where I'll have this LO I'm guessing another elective c-section for me - I had an emergency C-section under GA with DS so was had an elective c-section with DD so will be another for me this time!
how are you all feeling today? still no morning sickness here but im finding myself falling asleep in the car while hubby is driving n i know this is tmi but anyone else had diorrhea? gross i know but im confused as with my first i was blocked up the whole way through my pregnancy.
as for who i've told - i told my mum the same time as my hubby (via sms as they were both at work), my mother in law found out after my doctors visit when the doctor told me this nugget prob wont stick (her office is right next to my doctor so went there for a cry) and i told my best friend who is visiting her fiance in america atm. besides that im terrified that others will find out and if people ask if im up the duff i just say " geez guess its time i hit the gym" lol.
Had my scan and all was as it should be for 5+4, good round sac and a yolk circle - couldn't see any bleeding either So great news and have another scan in a couple of weeks to see how it is progressing
So relieved and everyday that passes must mean little one must be getting stickier!!
That's great news Cracker! I wish could have an early scan, but I'm just going to wait for the usual 12 week one.
Symptoms wise, the most prominent things I'm experiencing are extreme thirst overnight and feeling out of puff really easily. The only nausea I'm getting is first thing in the morning, but it goes away once I eat/drink something. I'm only 4 weeks though, so it's still got time to progress Oh, and I sometimes get sharp pulling/stretching pains through my uterus, but they're really random and don't last long so I'm not worrying about them too much.
I'm going to ask my midwife about local birthing centres. That way I'm in a relaxed atmosphere when I give birth, but if I need any medical intervention I can get help straight away. I think there's one attached to my local hospital... xx
