I'm cautiously pregnant with my 2nd baby, due date will be sometime mid July so I'm just over five weeks at the moment and feeling very nervous.
I'm 38 and I have a 5 yo DD who's very eager to have a sibling, she doesn't know I'm pregnant yet.
Would love to chat with other "more mature" mamas to be!
I'm also cautiously pregnant, also due mid-July I'm 37, also just over 5 weeks. This is my 5th pregnancy, we have two boys, 4 and 1. Our older boy would LOVE a baby sister haven't told him yet about this pregnancy - I'm going to wait probably until week 12/13. He knew about my last pregnancy earlier this year... he ended up being with us during the scan (long story) and so we let him know what was going on, though unfortunately things didn't stick. He was sad when we let him know the embryo had stopped growing
I'm in Australia so technically for me this would be a winter baby, lol.
Do you have any other symptoms other than being nervous? I feel like I have none... maybe just a bit tired, and irritable. Otherwise -- nothing. It's kinda bumming me out! I had bloods taken 2 days ago and results seemed very good, but it will be over a week until I go for more bloods + my first scan!
Thanks for joining me! It's such a nerve-wrecking time!
Sorry to hear about your previous losses, I hope things go smoothly this time.
That's the reason I don't want to tell anything to DD yet, she'd be so disappointed if the pregnancy didn't work out. That and the fact she would tell absolutely everyone; she already talks about her baby sister all the time so it has happened a few times that people have assumed I was pregnant when I wasn't!
I've got sore breasts but that's about it. Had some funny stretching feeling in my tummy before, and some mild cramping/twinges but nothing worth mentioning at the moment. I got quite a bad morning sickness with DD during the second half of the first trimester, remains to be seen if that happens again. I do feel slightly queasy at times, but not too bad. Did you get sick with your previous pregnancies?
I'm so jealous you are having a scan so soon! I have to wait until 12 weeks for the first scan. Haven't even had an appointment with my regular doctor yet as it's not an emergency. How many scans do you get? I'm actually considering going private at around 8 weeks, it's costly but not sure I can wait until 12 weeks!!
Whereabouts are you in Australia? I've never been but would love to one day, have some family in Brisbane.
Hello I am 36 and cautiously pregnant with number 2 as only just got my bfp today, so 4 weeks. Also a summer baby, due 22 July. Which is funny as my first was also a summer baby, due July but turned up early June! I am really excited as we tried for 2 years for this one but at the same time I dont think I will be able to relax until I get to the 12 week scan. I dont have many symptoms yet, just trouble sleeping (a pain with an early rising 2 1/2 year old).
Did your pregnancy happen all naturally in the end? Must feel nice after two years!!!
My bean is a soya baby, I took soya isoflavones for the first time this cycle as I'm a bit irregular and I was hoping it might bring my ovulation forward as well as make the egg stronger. I wasn't expecting it to work so quickly!
That 12 week scan seems so far away, I'm not sure I can wait that long!
Did you have any symptoms with your first pregnancy at this point?
I'd not heard of using soya before dimmu how fantastic that it worked. I ended up taking clomid this time round which was a little disappointing but all worth it now. I dont think I had any symptoms this early last time. I was pretty lucky last time and had a fairly smooth pregnancy so fingers crossed this one is similar.
I find it hard to wait for the 12 week scan too. First trimester seems to be one long waiting game.
I only heard of soya on these boards as well! A couple of months ago I had one of my long cycles when I didn't o until cd37 which was frustrating. I saw the soya thread here and read some more about it and decided to give it a try, and it worked. They call it the nature's clomid, it works the same way. So pleased I gave it a try, whatever it takes eh!
How are you feeling today? Not much change for me, breasts are tender but that's about it. None of the fatigue, frequent urination or anything that everyone keeps mentioning. Should consider myself lucky I guess but at the same time more symptoms would be reassuring!!
I'm seriously considering having the private scan, just not sure I can wait that long. We also have guests coming over for Christmas and even though I'm not a big drinker, I'm known to like a glass or two of wine, and if I suddenly refuse that would certainly raise a few eye brows. So might be nice to have that scan in case people start guessing..
It's tempting to go for a private scan I think I will end up waiting till January for NHS. Would be lovely to have the scan ready for Christmas. Not many symptoms, I do need to go more but that could just be due to drinking more water. I do feel a little nausea but not sure if it just looking for symptoms
I know I'm really tempted but not sure I can justify the cost. They seem to be about 100 quid and even more for evenings and weekends, the option I would have to go for as I work full time and wouldn't like to say anything to my boss yet.
I also feel queasy and nauseous at times, but not sure if it is real or just in my head! I should definitely drink more water, keep forgetting.
