    Hey Crystal,

    Congrats! I'm not 100% sure of my EDD it will be either late July or early August.
    I have my first scan scheduled for next week Tuesday (nervous & anxious).

    How are you feeling so far?

    Welcome Scorpio!

    I've been sick with bronchitis so short of breath! But I've been very tired with no other real "symptoms" besides hot flashes.

    How about you?

    Oh no not bronchitis. Get well soon x

    I've had heaps of symptoms, fatigue, constant urination, nausea, morning sickness, food aversions, nose bleeds, sinus and thirst.
    Sorry if TMI but I've had mild diarrhea now and again.

    I was sick with the cold/flu end of Oct to early Nov and this is when I noticed EWCM. I had lack of BD due to DH working double shifts. I thought there was no chance I could get pregnant. We were also getting ready to fly out to Hong Kong for two weeks. I did feel funny when in HK so the day I got home I did a test. It was BFN. I waited a few more days but still felt weird so took another test. It was BFP.

    I'm trying :) I'm going to call the doctor today - she said if I still wasn't feeling better we could do a short round of a small dose of prednisone. I think that would help a lot - it's been a week since I've seen her and almost three since I started getting sick!

    I'm glad that you got your bfp despite not perfect BDing! I was nervous because we wore each other out and never BDed on O day or the day after! Just the like 4 days prior!

    You'll have to let me know what your EDD and hopefully some other ladies out there will join us and I can keep track of us all on the front page!

    Hi ladies,
    I am due 3rd august too! Although feels way too far away to even seem possible.
    I am having lots of twinges and cramps that are making me paranoid.
    Also can't stop eating!!!

    Ok so I just checked my dates and due Aug 5th not 3rd but close enough!
    I know if you get symptoms you worry, if you don't get symptoms you still worry.
    I am on an hourly underwear check as keep thinking I feel bleeding. Need to seriously chill out or its going to be a very long nine months (hopefully)

    Hey Ladies,

    H&H 9 months to you both.
    It's hard trying not to be anxious.
    Let us remain positive and happy :)

    I bought a pregnancy diary to get my mind off things.
    It's really helped so far. I've jotted down my symptoms etc.
    And I've written out a nutrional diet.
    I look forward to filling out all the details :D

    Have either of you done something which helps ease your mind?

    x Scorpio

    I work and my DD keeps me pretty busy. That and I'm getting blood tests every 3 days so that definitely helps.

    Work keeps my mind off things a bit.
    I also usually exercise a lot which keeps me sane but decided to tone it down for this pregnancy just in case. Going to stick to swimming and low impact stuff which will hopefully help me relax.
    I like the idea of a journal Scorpio, I do find writing things down helps me.

    Oh and the constant eating is filling a few hours too!! :thumbup:

    Hehe yes the eating does help pass time.

    I can't concentrate at work. I think it's because I was pregnant while away on a 3 week break. Haven't really broke out of holiday mode as yet.
    I find it very hard to keep motivated mainly because of fatigue.
    And at home I keep doing silly things like putting away the linen in the pantry LOL. Is this what they call baby brain?

    Christmas is just around the corner and I haven't had time to go pressie shopping or anything. 6 days left until the first scan. DH and I will announce our news to family on Christmas day. It will be too hard to keep a secret. FX that everything is ok on the scan.

    Amazing that you have a first scan already booked!! I'm praying that Thursday is my next blood draw and he said at my last appointment that he'd be thinking about 12/3 for first scan. I hope that's correct!!

    I have been seeing a FS/Gynae after the MC.
    I called up the doctors office as soon as I got my BFP.
    The nurse said it was best to go for a scan at approx 5 weeks.

    12/3 will be 5w2d so that would be good for me too. I need to go because I had a suspected ectopic last December.

    Start of the baby brain already! Mine has never gone away and it's been over 4 years now. :dohh:

    That's good you ladies have got bloods and scans booked already. I am seeing midwife on Monday but not sure when will get a scan. I was offered an early scan when i was pregnant last time due to preious miscarriage so I will probably get offered an early scan again.

    I am just not sure when to get it as both of my miscarriages have been after 8 weeks. Don't want to go for early scan at 8 weeks and everything fine then have to wait until 12 weeks and find no heartbeat.

    Feeling really positive today though so fingers crossed we have 3 sticky beans (1 each not 3 each!!!)

    Hey girls,

    This is the first time for me to join a board, but thought it would be fun and hopefully help with the anxieties of being pregnant after having a miscarriage 2 months ago. From what I can tell I think my due date will be August 5, 2013. I am so excited/nervous/anxious/happy! I have had two betas done, one on the 26th which was 201 and one today which was 696:)

    So happy to be here!
