    i don't either! except for a few bouts of nausea, but i think it was just because it was the days i was waiting for my hcg results and my nerves were just tore up! i think at this point, i'd be ecstatic even if the ms is dreadful!!

    I don't have morning sickness yet but I'm getting nausea's more often now and I have to eat regularly but it's nothing bad just bouts.
    I'm also really tired, twitchy cramps and my boobs are tender and I get stabbing pains in them, does anyone else get stabbing pains?

    Welcome Jo. How are you feeling?

    Puppy - They are great numbers, you sure there isn't an extra little surprise waiting for you at your first scan!!!! or maybe your later than 14dpo

    My numbers are pathetic compared to all of you and they started so much lower, it's got me a little worried, they are doubling but I started at 38 where as your all starting in the 100's

    Hiya all. Just a quick question for just waiting what dpo did you get your bloods done at and what were your numbers? Yey for them doubling!!!

    I don't think my numbers have gone up quickly as it has taken a week for my tests to get as dark as the control line (FRERS) and 2 days ago at 4+4 I still had 1-2 on a digi so got myself in a bit of a state!

    At 15dpo it was 38.4 at 18dpo 234 and 22dpo 1074. . I had a bt at 10dpo and there was nothing there. I have another bt tomorrow and I'm hoping for about 3000. I think I ovulated late and implanted late too but my numbers being lower does scare me even if they are doubling.:shrug:

    Are u having bloods done Cazi?

    I have been told by everyone that mine are really quite high. Everyone is saying twins but i know that there are other (less nice) reasons for having high hcg. Tomorrow's beta will show for sure i suppose.

    The wory never ends Cazi x

    I'm having my second hcg level tested today. At 16dpo it was 175 which seems lower than most women's so I'm a little worried too. I just wish I could wake up and be 12 weeks pregnant!

    Looks like we're all a bit anxious!

    I'm having an ultrasound Monday, but I'm nervous there won't be anything to see. It seems a bit early. I'll only be 5w6d. Praying there will be something to see!

    Ladies, I had a scan at 6 wks last pregnancy beaby measured 5.4wks and there was a hb (they called it a flicker because it was faint) so you may or may not see anything. I think if you can get ur scans pushed back a week that would ensure you would see something. I have one next tuesday at 6.4 and the following week at 7.4 hoping to see a little hb.
    why do they want to scan you at 5.6wks?

    how is everyone feeling?
    I've been having some sharp pains in my uterus and my boobs over the last few days. The nurse reassured me it's all the hormones! I'm either cranky or crying at the monet I well up at the silliest things, poor hubby! I'm looking about 5-6months pregnant with the bloating, so uncomfortable.

    I have no idea why??? My consultants secretary called me with the appointment. I didn't even mention a scan as I find them HIGHLY stressful and unpleasant. Even the ones where I see a heartbeat. I saw a heartbeat with each of my three angels and they all grew wings. The only thing that will ease me is if I see my baby's heartbeat after 8 weeks.

    My symptoms are awesome.
    Nausea
    Exhaustion
    Very emotional
    Lots of creamy cm
    Extremely sore boobs/sensitive nipples

    I started my progesterone today. I'm hoping this will help me have a successful pregnancy. Time will tell I suppose.

    Hi hoping, Your sounding very positive. Your right worrying will not help any of us it can be very hard tho. Taking it day by day!
    Why have they said no sex until 11wks?
    I am refusing sex, I just don't feel like it and am scared, dh under stands but I don't know how he'd go being told no sex until late jan. How did you hubby take the news?

    Good night ladies

    Morning ladies - I was hoping that I could join you? I have been stalking you for a couple of days and have just about plucked up the courage to join! I got my bfp on Tuesday evening at 10dpo (the earliest even bfp I've had) and so I have been waiting a while before joining a 'due date' group. However, you ladies seem to be lovely and have all been through similar experiences so it seems like the perfect place for me.

    I came off the BCP almost exactly a year ago. Since then I have had irregular periods (only 7 cycles this whole year), possible PCOS and endo (I was being investigated for this when I fell pregnant in June so all investigations stopped), a mmc at 9.5 weeks and a mc straight after at 6.5 weeks. I'm now almost 4 weeks and just hoping with all my heart that this one decides to stick around!

    My due date (going by LMP) is the 17th August 2012.

    Can I ask - do you work your due date out by LMP or by ovulation?!! In the past I have used ovulation as my cycles have been long; however, this time I ovulated on CD16 so it is only a very silght difference but at the moment one day makes all the difference to me!

    Hey struth :wave: I'm so glad you decided to join us here. I find it way more comfortable in a group of ladies who know exactly how I feel.

    I would go from ov. The only reason why they use LMP is because most ladies don't know when they ov.

    Have you got any symptoms yet?

    I think mine's the same because I ov'd CD15 so by LMP and ov it's exactly the same.

    Been for my 2nd BETA, now we wait :coffee:

    Scared.
