Hi Ali
i tested this morning (twice!!) and got BFP so according to my EDD chart im due on August 12th. (first day of last period was Nov 5th)
I wasnt too suprised either asbeen feeling very nauseus all week - at nights mostly, and been going to the loo loads.
Ive got two kids 14 and 12 - each pregnancy has been conceived in the first month of trying so feeling very lucky after reading the threads on ttc.
We havent told anyone yet so looking forward to that.
good luck for the next 9 months!!

hi fiona,

my last period started 4 nov, tried to work out if ive got a 28 or 30 day cycle, its 30 so due date is 13 aug!
yeah we feel very grateful that we can concieve so soon, i know that for some its not so easy.
we're going to keep it a secret for a while, thinks its more exciting that way.
glad that i can share my thoughts on this thread!
wishing you good luck too for the next 9months!:)

hi all,

yeah im hoping that because we have the christmas holidays and new year coming up that it will go in quickly.
started to take my pregnacare tablet and they're nicer to take than the last ones i had.
really can't wait to phone the antenatal clinic to book my first app.

hi tracy,

really good that you found this website!
we're only a few days into dec & there's already a few of us :) my tummy is already sticking out a bit and that was before i ate!

04/12/2006 at 11:53
i think the ecxitement is starting to build now!! Im glad im not the only one who cant wait to tell tracy!
what pills do you recommend to take now Ali? Ive been on folic acid for 3 months.
Ive got my first docs appt with my DP tomorrow afternoon so that will really make it official.Looking forward to seeing how things have changed since my first pregnancy 15 years ago (i really dont feel that old!)
wish the tearfulness would go though, ive been weepy for 3 weeks now.. even the colour of my coffee (decaf lol)set me off this morning. Thank goodness ive my own office.
My stomach is feeling a little swollen to Ali!
speak soon

i thought i was being silly thinking my tummy had grown already hee hee, wouldn't be all that food i have been eating.

I haven't got my first appointment with my midwife until 3rd Jan - do you think thats late? i will be 10 weeks by then.

04/12/2006 at 15:32
my stomach is def inches bigger this aft.. but reckon its wind from the veg soup!! should make for a quick drive home tonight!!
im off to see docs tomorrow to get ball rolling but dont know when i have to see midwife. I know due to my age it should be sooner rather than later for any tests. so if youre under 35 10 weeks is probably fine.

Hi, I found out I was pregnant with our second child a week ago (our son is 4). My due date is 7th-9th August, just waiting to see my Dr on 18th to confirm. We are all so exicted and plan to tell our friends and family on Christmas day. My stomach def seems bigger too, but that could also be the extra food I've been eating!.

04/12/2006 at 23:47
hi all,

was working late tonight, so going to have a late feast! yeah fi, glad im not the only one with growing tummy, i had to go to work with the top button of my trousers undone!! just started taking pregnacare, tablets contain lots of vitamins & minerals. if anyones interested they're website is

i was just thinking today, my first midwife app probably won't be until next year! don't mind though just want to have a date set!

welcome rebecca that will be a lovely surprise for your family eh!
its handy that we're pregnant at christmas cause it won't just be us eating for two, everyone will be scoffing lots of extra festive food!!

I will def be eating tons ova xmas Ali - will miss my cheeses though stilton and red wine.... cheddar and pop just doesnt sound so good! maybe one small glass of bubbly on xmas day will be my treat!
I prob wont be able to see my midwife till next year either.

Hello every1!! Hope yr all well!!
Thanks Fiona! It is very hard going thru all the treatment, I'm very lucky that it worked 2nd time round...I really feel for yr friend I know how tough it is...I wish her all the luck in the world.
We have told family and friends they all knew bout treatment so cudn't really keep it from everyone.
I went to the Docs on Monday had to do a wee sample and am being refered to the midwife.
I'm back to work next Wed, have been off for 3 weeks will be glad to get back to normal...everyone has been wrapping me up in cotton wool...bless them.
Hope Docs went well Kim and yr dog is ok.
Oh Fiona what is a nuchal fold scan??
