    Hi all,

    I am feeling nervous have fuller boobs ( but not much) and have had backache but think it was due to a UTI as that was how I knew I was pregnant last time! I have been drinking loads so it seems better now.

    I have told no one yet- too nervous =how about you?


    Oh yes sending lots of sticky thoughts to everyone!!!

    I have a 9 year old DS and have to keep my computer settings on private and turn off quickly now and then- he is still very huggy and comes over for a hug/ to play with me etc. so if I don't reply straight away that is probably why!:dohh:

    Have you been to the doctor yet? calculated your due date on the internet?

    I think I am due around the 5th Feb but have not been to the doctor yet as I am too nervous- there is a theme here isn't there- You know no one in real life would ever call me a nervous kind of person:shrug:

    Hi ladies, Im 37 and this would be our first!!! Havent told anyone (apart from on here) as it is such early days. I haven't even changed my b&b status - tho I might do that today :). Im peeing a lot, have some light twinges / cramps from time to time, have v sore bbs all the time and am totally exhausted. So tired. According to ff I'm 4+3 and also due 9 feb. But that seems so far away. First apt is with midwife in 11 days. Not sure what to expect except that she will do standard blood tests. Will also ask to get progesteron & thyroid levels checked. I also have a couple of sm fibroids in my womb so that is a worry. Im not mega stressed tho as that would be no good. I do have a small niggling thought that it could be twins - twins in family, my age, a little overweight, the utter fatigue and Ive also had hives this wk, but prob reading too much into all that. Anyway just wanted to stop by and introduce myself and thank you for this thread. Here's to 9mths H&H to all! xxxxxxx

    :flower: Hello threebirds,

    Twins would be amazing! My dad was a twin and I would love them but I believe that it is the maternal side that has hereditary twins- none there that I know of. I am older ( and a little large ) and tired so you never know!

    You are very sensible not to worry so much- I keep watching comedy shows to release positive vibes to beany along with the nervous ones- ( does that even work) :haha:

    H&H nine months to you too :hugs:

    Hi guys and congrats!

    Im 41 and this will be my first baby although sadly not my first pregnancy. But on the upshoot, i have never had so many or so strong pg symptoms in my life! Previously i only had sore boobs and some cramping. This time ive got EVERYTHING but the actual throwing up!! I had IVF with 2 embryos put in so it could be twins but have no idea really..FX :) I have a scan on 16th June so i'll find out then i guess :thumbup:

    Although have lots of symptoms the hormone swings mean the symptoms come and go, so im constantly paranoid (especially as had missed mc's in the past) and double check how i feel constantly :wacko:

    Im due 30th January and mentally i already have a big calendar in my mind with red x's crossed for all the important dates, previous mc dates and 12 weeks - once i make it there i will be delighted and elated!!! :happydance:

    The best of luck and sticky :dust: to all!

    :hug: xxx

    Thanks everyone & congrats to you all, good to chat with y'all. My first apt is 16th & even that seems ages away. Its so weird having wanted this soo long and now to be so scared it wont work out. But good to be positive. Going to try to get a bit more exercise in, get in better shape. Time to get the wii fit out again for somw gentle step aerobics and maybe also try out some pregnancy yoga :)

    Hi everyone - I'm having a bit of a rough day today - lovely MS and some lovely vomiting! Super bloated and shattered with bad skin, I look a delight! I'm also seriously 'worried' about twins, seeing as my mum is one... I'm not sure I could cope with 2 at once! Well I would, but I'd be scared. First scan is in 2 weeks so hoping all is well and can't wait to see if this little one is actually in there!

    Hi all,

    Back at work today - knackered and bloated ( I had to undo the button on my trousers ).

    Threebirds, Robinator and Desperado: I am so excited about your scans and can't wait to hear about them!:happydance:

    Storm1jet 2 I am so sorry to hear about your sickness, I was sick everyday until I had DS. This time I still have nothing- but there is time yet- when did yours start?

    Hi y'all, hope you are all doing well.
    I don't know how I will last til my first scan!! I haven't even seen doc yet. Im went into my local practise & the receptionist said I couldnt make apt for dr it was midwife I would see - that's the apt I have for 16th. I expect at that she'll make arrangements for 1st scan. I suspect that might not be til 12wks but will really try for earlier scan (due to fibroids & age). It's exciting reading about other people's scans. Right now I guess Im just nervous until I know things are going okay.
    Sorry for those of you whose symptoms are worse today.
    Lots of hugs & best wishes xxx

    I feel tired. I already have two kiddos and work at night, so I don't have much of a chance to rest. One reason why we put off having a third for so long. Oh well. It's funny... I think I had a glorified memory of pregnancy. It's not as fab as I thought--even though I've been through it before. Last time was 5 years ago.
