Well I suppose Im first to find Im pregnant for November (I still cant believe it!) Due 5th November - so hoping for fireworks!!! ...right well Im Emma or Em I dont mind (Have come from the TTC board, I wish the ladies there all the luck in the world)...Im 31 years old DH is 33 this will be our first baby ...although we have 3 cats Vegas, Vodka and Velcro who are my furry babies!! ...Im waiting for my date to come through for my scan - they have said it will be around the 3rd week in April - So excited!!
Im really excited and hope that I make some lovely new friends on this board and we can all travel through this exciting new phase of our lives together!!
Much love - come and join me soon!!!! xxxx
hi em just wanted to say big congrats
cant beleive there is a nov 10 thread already! I was on the ttc thread for a year and made some really good friends and also on the nov 09 thread my little man is now 13 weeks old
Tereza - Thankyou!! aaawww he looks adorable congratulations!! (I love the little clothes with ears on!!!)
...Im still at the really excited, really scared, really excited part!!! How did you find having a november baby? xxx
hi em thank you was a present from one of my partners family i remember that stage well! didnt really stop feeling scared or excited at all hehe
november baby was fine i was due 25th so was worried if he was 2 weeks over he would have been born in december only a few weeks before christmas but he came a day early in theend so at christmas he was a month old
How lovely! I dont think I will be able to stop myself from dressing "my package" (as DH is affectionally calling bubs) up! reindears all the way me thinks!!! xx
My names Elaine and im 33. I tested positive last Friday, and i was a week late at that point..so i am guessing that i will also be due in November.
I was so shocked i took two more tests, both of which came up positive too! Its my first as well, so i know exactly how you are feeling
It was one hell of a shock for me any my husband as we have been trying for 2 1/2 years and have recently been put on the IVF waiting llist, due to start treatment around April time....so this was not what we expected at all! ha ha.
How you feeling at the mo? I am due to see my doc on Friday to confirm, and then i guess i will get a date for my scan/ due date. At the mo i am elated, but slightly worried at the same time.
I am starting to feel rather tired during the afternoons this week, and my boobs are hurting a bit, but no sickness at all...which is weird...coz i kind of thought i would be. I hope this isnt a bad sign
anyhow..congrats...its good to be in touch with someone who is going through the same at the same time xx
Lennie! Welcome and Congratulations!!! so pleased for you after the long long wait you have had x
Ive taken 4 tests! and part of me is still in disbelief! excited scared and excited all at the same time cant stop smiling!
Feeling hmmm - Im tired alot anyway but shattered doesnt quite describe how tired I am! not really sleeping to well; had a night of nightmares last night (I get them when im anxious ), BB's are hurting more in a full kind of way - seem to be getting in the way more! ... Heartburn - my friend rennies! although I was just reading that fizzy water can help so going to go out at lunch and buy a big bottle; and my thermostat doesnt seem to work - one minute Im boiling and tearing off clothes - the next Im shivering (like now with a hot water bottle on my knee!). not sick though but normal for this to kick in at about week 6 - Im hoping not to get this too bad!
My doctor didnt do anything - so dont expect alot! apparently this is normal and the fun bit starts at the scan appointment where we will get more information than we know what to do with...Let me know how your appointment goes x
Im so pleased you have come and joined me hopefully we will get lots more novemeber ladies and we can all support each other through this!
Have you told anybody yet? xxx
lol! Will be our I will keep ...oh yeah Monday I had the beginings of a migraine - started to loose sight in my right eye - paracetamol being the only thing you can take seemed to take it away before it got too bad - Im quite lucky really as I get an Aura before migraine (like pins and needles in my face/arms/hands/tounge!) so gives me a chance to stop it before it happens...
Yup fx (fingers crossed) this is a no ms thread!
Speak to you soon lovely xxx
OMG ... how big are these puppies gonna get??? already too big for my sports bra! ...think I need a shopping trip at the weekend! Feeling really good today very happy (if not a little sore!) eating little and often, but slept through last night - no nightmares! Elaine hope you are feeling well? xx
Well i went to my doc appointment this morning and you were right in what you said...not much happened and it was fairly uneventfuly. Infact i came away a bit deflated!
He wasnt very helpful and even though i told him that tomorrow i am week 6, he put on the medication exempt form that i was due at teh end of Nov...which i work out to be completely incorrect. I work out it is the beginning of Nov. I told him this and all he said was.....well that date isnt really all that important for this form anyway! How rude is that? Its important to me!
Anyhow, he passed me a telephone number to ring a midwife to make a pre-appointment with them, so i have rung them and have an appointment next wed morning at our local hospital. I am hoping that the response i get from them is more helpful and positive. I was given the impression that i will be given screening and blood tests at this appointment...so i will let you know when i have been
As for the 'puppies'...mine seem to have grown somewhat this week too and are slightly tender...they arent all that massive anyhow thankfully so its just kinda nice to have a bit more cleavage! ha ha.
Still no sickness though...this crossing my fingers malarky must be working so far!
Ill be in touch soon
got one question though..i am still wearing my undewired bras and am getting conflicting messages as to whether or not this is ok. Some women have continued with them whilst others have swopped to non underwired ones...do you know anything about this? Am i ok to use the ones im using?
I dont want to go out and buy loads of new ones if i dont need to for the time being
Hi Elaine x
hmmm Ive heard lots about dr's being really unsupportive - mine said the next time I will see any body will be at the end of April! so sounds like yours had a little bit more about him than mine! Yes please let me know how that goes - ...I may ring and ask to speak to the nurse who did my smear a few weeks ago she was really nice and helpful...
Im utterly shattered Im constantly - I cant stop!!!
re bra's - my friend (who is also pregnant) is a breast feeding support person - and she has said that the bones in the bras can damage the milk ducts so to get a maternity bra (and get properly measured) .... think Im going to go out at the weekend as this sports bra is busting at the seems!!
Sorry reply was brief - had a client waiting for me ...I meant to say - My doctor hasn't even given me the medication exempt form!! Im not to happy ....
I dont think they realise how important that date is to us - yes we know it will probably change BUT that is NOT the point!
I do hope that they are more supportive at your next visit xxx
lol! just rang my surgery and was told i cant talk to the nurse! hmmm ... maybe I need to look for a family planning centre ....
Hi em see ur site is a little quiet just now just wanted to say another congratulations to you both and that if use have any questions about anything then give me a shout i will try help the best that i can xx
Its just so exciting!!!
Im not sure where you are in the country Em, but i am up north in the East Riding. Apparently in my town you have to go to your docs where he then refers you to the midwives at the hospital...seems like the whole going to the doc thing is a waste of time if you ask me (especially when he didnt actually do anything apart from give me a form...which he filled out wrong). Maybe they jsut do it differently where you are.
I am guessing that at my appointment on Wed i will be given some info, have my bloods done and then sent away until the scan date..which wont be for a good 5/6 weeks...
Let me know if you do get to see anyone beforehand. It would be good to at least get some reassurance and information etc. I will of course let you know what happens on Wed once i have been.
Have a nice weekend xx Im going out with some friends tonight and im bursting to tell them....cant believe i have to keep 'mum' for another 5 weeks at least.....
Speak to you soon
Jen - thanks for your note....no doubt i will have plenty to ask once things start progressing some more. You are right though...exciting times ahead!! Cant wait to start picking things out and getting ready for this new arrival!!!
