I'm due around mid October, I've got my first appointment with the midwife next Tuesday can't wait for my first scan! At the moment it all seems a bit surreal...
Hi , so excited for a due OCT thread!!
Hi Lucy - when you meet the midwife it all starts to become real and you get dates in your diary and the weeks for me are flying now. Hope you first appointment goes well. and congratulations!
Hi Nicci - Is this your first baby and when in Oct are you due? Congratulations too.
Ill introduce myself, I am 25 on Monday eek! and Im due with my first baby 1st of October. I got my scan on the 18th March, but I have already paid for a early private scan at 7 weeks as we had a little scare. Will have been married for 2 years in August and we are both just over the moon as we have been trying for a year.
Look forward to going though this adventure with you ladies...
I'm almost too scared to join, but here goes. My name's Rachael, married to my lovely husband for seven months, been together 3 years. I'm 25 and already have a lovely little girl named Abi who will be 2 in a couple of weeks. I'm around 6 weeks pregnant, I fell with this one straight after a miscarraige at about 5 weeks so i'm still very scared and nervous all the time. I have my first midwife app on Wednesday and can't wait to get a scan date through.
Just noticed the due Oct thread and wanted to say Congrats on your pregnancies.
Im due 9th May and cannot believe how fast this pregnancy is going.
Lots of luck and wishes for a happy and healthy 9 months for you all!

Hi again ladies,
Forgot to say my due date at the moment is Oct 22, but i think that's at least a week early and will be put back.
Came home today to find my first scan date in the post it's on April 8th, yay something to aim for and look forward too.
Thanks for the welcome Nicci.

Hi all and congratulations!
I'm Jess, due 27th Oct, I think!. Just had scan date through yesterday for 15th April, and have first MW appointment 14th March.
Hi Laura, so pleased all is well with your little wriggler
Nice to have an oct thread at last
I remembers some of the faces on here from when i joined, Laura beat me too it in 2008 and when i was due 1st and Rach was on the due Mar 2009 board with a friend of mine!! Nice to some familiar faces having good news
I remember the feeling 3 years ago when i joined this forum being due in Oct 2008 so i wish you all healthy pregnancies and hope you make some lovely friends here like i did
Ok so after a night debating and talking to some good friend from Nov 08 I think I'm ready to tell you a little bit about myself.
I have one georgous boy who's 2 yrs old called Max and last year I had a lovely little boy called Charlie, who at 9 days old died completely unexpectedly from a virus that attacked his brain. One minute he was pink and seemlingly healthy and 3 hours later he was dead, the doctors were gobsmacked as its extremly rare. He was born perfect and it was no-ones fault.
I am very scared this time round, but the doctors said it's so rare it shouldn't happen again.
I was backing off telling you guys as I didn't want to scare you, but he was a big part of my life for 9months and those very precious 9 days. I do talk about him alot at home and with friends as I don't want his memory forgotten or for Max not to know about him and I want to remember the happy times we had with him.
I hope I haven't brought the tone of the thread down at this fab time for everyone.
Jess, as George said thanks for telling us about Charlie. You sound very brave and i am so so sorry for your loss. This is what this site's all about sharing our feelings and hardships and you shouldn't feel you have to hold back, we're all here to help and support each other. Congratulations on this pregnancy, must be very bittersweet for you. I look forward to getting to know you better and sharing this special tome with you.
Hope everyone has had lovely weekends. My little girl has been very trying today and i'm completely shattered. Had forgotton how much early pregnancy takes it out of you!
I'm crashing so I apologise straight away!!
I just wanted to say congrats to you all and how happy I am for you all. I know a few of you girls incredibly well (George and Rach!!) and I'm delighted to be sharing my journey with you both again.
Jess, I was an avid reader of your Nov 08 thread when all you ladies were having your babies, I was so sorry to read about what happened with little Charlie. I think you're a truely remarkable woman and so brave.
Wishing you all very happy and healthy pregnancies!!
Thanks for the welcome! I have a slightly different story, this is my first pregnancy and was very unexpected! I've been having problems with the pill and was waiting to have a coil fitted and got caught! I've been with my partner only a short time, just had a big promotion at work and splashed out on my dream car! When I did a test my range of emotions was very different to what I'm sure you guys went through, to say I was devastated was an understatement!
When it finally sunk in what a change of heart! I feel incredibly protective over my bean and my partner has been truly amazing, I'm so excited, but at the same time petrified that something terrible is going to happen! I also feel incredibly guilty that friends of mine have been trying for a long time / going through IVF and I appear to have gotten pregnant so easily, I'm not looking forward to telling them!
P.s. My boss is going to kill me!
