Hi hun I would be exactly the same as you but I've got a Doppler I don't use it all the time but every now and again I just check that babies heart is nice and strong i find it really puts your mind at rest so you can enjoy your pregnancy instead of worrying constantly xxx

I know how you feel, if I get pregnant I'll probably need daily scans too. I've been trying and worrying my brain for far too long too. Xx

Its mega hard, you really think once you have bfp then everything will be easy lol! My boobs hurt a bit on and off and got a funny niggle in the bottom of my back but then i wonder if its all in my head! How are you feeling xxx

Haha that is just the start!!!! We thought trying for a baby was difficult this is even harder...

I feel better than I was. The bleeding stopped Monday lunchtime. And since then I've had more symptoms since so I am feeling more hopeful that the baby is still there. I always feel relieved feeling any symptoms it makes me feel the baby is Ok.

I hope it improves after the 12 week scan tho I will be relieved to see a heart beat at my 6 week scan xoxo

I know i think i will be doing the same! You'll see me on here in a few weeks asking the same questions lol ;)

My first scan for the follies is on Friday, i'm not feeling any side effects of the menopur tho so i'm a bit concerned to if it's actually working, no cramps or bloating or twinges :( i hope i have enough good eggs. Did you feel anything? x

Im sure everything is fine, i didnt really feel much either- a bit of bloating but the main effects for me started after trigger shot- with lots of bloating and the only time i bruised from an injection too! Xx

I'm 9 weeks exactly today and main symptom had been tiredness which comes and goes. No morning sickness at all! I share your worry ... I just keep telling myself that every pregnancy is different and also that most pregnancies do work out ok. But it is hard I know! A really scary time. I don't know how we stop panicking! X

I thought, right ill have 1 private scan then ill be fine.. but 2 days later im like ahhhh need another haha. But your right everyone is different so i guess we shouldnt compare to others ☺xx

I also keep reminding myself of all those women (my sister was one of them!) who didn't even find out they were pregnant until pretty much the end of the first trimester - presumably they didn't have strong pregnancy symptoms they whole way through. So surely the fact symptoms come and go must be a normal thing. But as I said - I tell myself all this but am still a ball of stress and anxiety too!!

I read somewhere yesterday that not good to scan too much. So maybe try to relax if you can and avoid too many scans which are not prescribed- probably based on what I read. I think you will be fine xxx

Hello!

I am 8 weeks 6 days. I was feeling pretty sick for a few weeks leading to my scan at 6+6 then it started to die down a little until then I wasn't particularly feeling sick any more just not my normal self! I started to worry and was convinced it was all over but then yesterday after about a week of not feeling sick it came back again so I really think it does come and go and can go for a while then come back!

It's sent me crackers!!!

Lots of love and luck! X

Yes, everyone is different so try not to worry too much. I'm good thanks, just traveling home from holiday (have eaten far too much!) Xx

Pumpkin - you are just a few days ahead of me (I'm 9+1 today). sounds like you feel like I do too (although my boobs aren't even very sore, just bigger). I know it sounds crazy but I wish I had morning sickness so at least I felt pregnant. Not knowing what is going on in there is driving me crazy. I've booked a private scan (as part of NIPT testing) next Wednesday. I'm just so terrified about that scan already - I'm driving myself around bend! X

Hi London, bless you, it's so hard. I think I was like this on my last pregnancy although it was 7 years ago. No real symptoms but generally feeling a bit rubbish but can't put my finger on it.

Good luck with the scan, I've got my first midwife appointment next Friday when I'll be 11 weeks so looking forward to that. Keep strong & stay in touch xxx

Thanks Pumpkin! Glad I'm not the only one. Not long until you are through the first trimester! I've got my booking appointment Sunday (when I'll be 9+5). I was pretty surprised when the NHS sent me a letter that the booking appointment was a Sunday! You stay in touch too! X
