    You've been added RGN on post 1!

    AFM: OK so my best friend from London just confessed on the phone that she is pregnant as well!!! Totally unexpected and she had fertility issues so basically was given no chance to conceive naturally and BOOM no protection and baby on board. I'm so excited as we are a week apart...it also means I'll be traveling to London this summer to see her when we are both beach balls! Maybe we can meet up with those nearby??? We are both hoping and praying that these are forever babies!

    PS.
    I can add Scan dates as well for the 1st post so that we can keep up with as well??? Let me know when you ladies have scans and/or tests and I will post up the info on the 1st page, OK?

    Grand - so exciting for you to go through pregnancy/parenthood with your best friend! Will be fun for your kids to grow up knowing eachother too! I know scans are different in the UK but will you get an early one, or do you have to wait it out?

    My first scan on Jan 27 at 6w1d showed a heartbeat but small gestational sac, which is a bit worrisome. I have my next scan this Friday at 8w2d. Hoping to see that the sac has caught up! My bbs are nice and sore, so am really hoping that it means things are still prgressing.

    I don't know if you girls have this but my stomach muscles were feeling sore ...probably from the stretching that's happening in my uterus. When I would cough or sneeze it was a little painful. Today that feeling seems to be gone but I'm trying not to read much into it. PMA, PMA!

    I know RGN I'm so excited to have my bestie along for the ride...

    I'm not in the UK but my GYN in France always does a 6-8 week scan regardless if you've had a miscarriage or not so I guess I will be getting an early one.

    I have my stomach muscles feeling like I did sit ups this weekend (I did not:winkwink:) so I think that all sounds good.

    I'm adding scan dates so fun!

    :hi: Hello fellow graduates! We've finally got a big enough group to start a PAL thread. Love the name, grand!

    As you all know, I've been in panic mode basically since I got my :bfp:, which hasn't been fun or healthy. Well, I'm SICK of worrying. I'm going to enjoy this! :dance:

    Here's my info:
    :bfp: January 20th @14dpo
    1st scan @ 6wks 1day = gestational sac & yolk sac, no little one (yet)
    2nd scan @ 7wks 5d = February 14th [-o<

    RGN: Good luck with your 2nd scan on Friday! I'm sure it'll be fine - I swear, doctors enjoy making us worry! :wacko: At my scan, the doctor said he was 'concerned' about the shape of my yolk sac as apparently it wasn't perfect enough for him. Jerk.

    Oops! I forgot EDD: September 28th.
    I think this is going to change at the next scan, though, as I seem to be a couple of days behind and it's likely the bean implanted late.

    morning ladies,

    hope everyone is well!!

    RGN I havent had a scan yet, I mentioned it to my doctor on Thursday and she said I should get sent my m/w appt this week and to discuss it with her, she thinks if I tell her how anxious I am they may let me have one. If not, I think I'll pay privately.

    I have been having nausea, sore boobs, lots of bloating etc but today I feel fine. Not revenously hungry like I have been, not car sick like I have been and I keep poking and prodding my boobs (ouch) to make sure something is going on!! PARANOID? ME??!?!? :)

    I actually went out looking for maternity jeans on Sat, I have been so uncomfortable in my normal jeans lately, even with them undone but I couldnt find a pair I like. I had no intention of ever buying anything so early but I figure I have to be comfy. Had a bit of a weep on Sunday morning (hormones) because I am struggling a little with keeping it a secret when I feel so bloated and feel I look about 6 months pregnant (maybe I exagerrate a little... hehe) and not going out/doing much with my evenings and weekends lately, poor OH just dispenses hugs and kisses when I get like that and tells me how lovely I am :)

    Also, TMI, but I am sooo windy! It's awful! I cant keep it in and I cant hide it when it happens iykwim. Poor OH just rolls his eyes and calls me smelly belly. haha! Its so embarrassing!

    :rofl:

    I think bloat is totally normally...I actually got bigger than smaller the first time around because the 1st 8 weeks were all bloat not baby...must be that extra wind :winkwink:


    I can't wait for symptoms...none so far but I'm only 4+3 but I want some so badly...I just feel like me...I want to feel like me with baby!

    What is everyone nicknaming their baby??? I don't know for me yet...I want it to come naturally like "wee nut" did the 1st time around...I'll let you know when I get the epiphany moment.

    ours is tinker :) our surname is Taylor (not married, we just happen to have the same surname!!) so we're calling the bubba tinker (or tinks mostly) at the moment. :)

    our last one was shrimp and everyone was calling it that, my mum, my friends etc (because they look like a little shrimp before looking like a baby) but this time no one's really called it anything and I am quite happy with just me and Neil (OH) having our secret name for it :)
