Aw congratulations x I’m due 28th. My nausea has been awful with this one! I’m on anti sickness tablets from GP. Hope we feel better soon! First midwife appointment makes things feel more real, and then first scan won’t be far off x

I’m due May 13th! I’m 11w3d. We lost our first in March at 11w2d so I’m quite happy right now that we’ve made it a little bit further already this time but still extremely nervous. This will hopefully be our first child. Our first scan is on a Monday. I’ve felt a lot sicker this time round and had a few other symptoms I didn’t have the first time. Have your symptoms been different every time? Xx

So sorry to hear that Shem, but also congratulations on this one, I can totally understand you being nervous but the signs are really good that you have those symptoms. This one I’ve had worst nausea with but this one is more similar to my first, with my son I had a lot of cramping but not with these two, so I’m convincing myself it’s a girl haha.

Your first scan will be amazing so try to relax and look forward to it cx

Thank you 😊 the Midwife also said it was a good sign that I was having stronger symptoms this time round. I’ve convinced myself this one is a girl but for no reason other than instinct! And the fact my husband would prefer a boy. Did you guess the sex of your precious babies right? I’ll try to relax but I don’t think I will until I’m told the baby is alive and kicking! I have started to show very slightly which didn’t happen last time and I told my boss yesterday because of needing an afternoon off next week for the scan. It’s all different this time round! Xx

I was wrong about my first, right about second haha. Will you find out at 20 week scan or wait for surprise? xx

I think we will wait for a surprise....although I might get the sonographer to write it down and seal it in an envelope in case I change my mind later! Haha. Xx

Tbh, with my first I had a birth plan and didn’t bother with my second because I didn’t want to be disappointed if it didn’t go that way again. My only thing was I didn’t want an epidural and managed to stick to that. I don’t know much about hypnobirthing, I’ll have a look xx

I've had a chat with my line manager and we are both fairly happy that there aren't too many changes needed yet, just avoiding things with lots of lifting or where there is a risk of impact (I'm not allowed to do my own climbing rescues or lift rafts). Will tell everyone at the end of the season I think.

Snap to the due date and lack of appetite! It's all fun and games for somebody who loves food. Before falling pregnant, my diet was very balanced and vegetable filled...now, keep those veggies away haha! It'll get better I'm sure! Good luck with everything ❤❤ xox

Hi everyone I'm 9 weeks +3 with my first baby. Very exciting and reassuring reading everyone's symptoms. Iv also had terrible nausea and no appetite which I'm finding hard. But I know it's a good sign so trying to look at it like that. Struggling to sleep and keep dreaming of having a mc not sure why other than I really want this baby to be healthy.

I'm due may 14th so now 11weeks4days. First baby after a round of IVF. Had a couple of scares so 3scans so farbut after been told they couldnt find baby at the first, the next two at 7 and 10 weeks have been perfect. 12 week scan is not until 15weeks though with a tagged on consultant appointment so think we may book a private one next week.

My scan is gonna be this Thursday. So should get a more accurate EDD then. But from pure ‘calculation’ at my booking appointment, I’m due to give birth in May also. So far I still haven’t received a letter from the hospital. Apparently they sent the 1st letter to a wrong address, and re-posted another one which should have arrived by now. But I called my midwife, and she told me I could just turn up on Thursday. Hopefully baby is all well. At the moment, it’s still doens’t feel very real. I think it will be an exciting moment to ‘see’ my baby for the 1st time this Thursday! Can’t wait!

Thanks so much! Really hope and pray that our baby is okay. Just read a post that kind of scared me a little. It said that she found out her baby wasn't developing anymore at her scan (a miscarriage). I thought one would know if there's a miscarriage by other symptoms like bleeding and so on. But this kind of freaks me out a little, hearing that someone would turn up at a scan only to find out the baby was no longer growing...... sob sob

Hi, congratulations. I'm also due in May but pretty sure they will be here sooner as having twins after IVF. Have a 16 month old and boy is it hard work. No rest and feeling pretty shattered.

I do feel blessed but can't wait for the taste of food to return as I can't stomach my usual array of food. Off milk, salad, humous, olives, anything remotely sweet etc etc. In fact I feel my diet is pretty pants but it's all I can eat with the morning sickness. I'm eating crisps, why? Never fussed by them usually or cheese etc. Had a spate of marmite on toast everyday but that has vanished. Pregnancy is a funny thing.

Have my 12 week scan in a week. Have convinced myself there is something wrong as feel things have changed. Have everything crossed. Is anyone else stressing about this?

Oh wow congratulations twins !! Why have you convinced yourself something is wrong? Although to be fair I’ve felt like that the last few days x

Reply

I have just felt different the last few days. I think I'm just worrying about setting myself up for the scan actually going well.

It may also be because most people I know have miscarried at some point. The most recent was my colleague just after her 20 wk scan.

Just think it's an unnerving time. This 12 wk scan can't come soon enough x

Hi everyone,

I'm 10w 5d today with my first child and still waiting on my letter for my first scan.

Been tucked up in bed for the past week with nasusea (not actually being sick but constantly feeling it!).

I can't seem to get my mind to rest until I know everything is ok!

I've lost 9lbs over the past couple of weeks but the midwife doesn't seem too bothered, anyone else had similar?

So excited but just scared to get my hopes up at this point, so many mixed emotions!!

Hi Katie,

I would definitely see your gp, some people don’t understand how debilitating the nausea can be. I had constant nausea and my gp gave me anti sickness tablets which are safe for baby. It also makes you feel miserable and stressed so I wouldn’t be surprised if this is adding to your anxieties.

I hope you get that scan soon and are reassured that baby is fine xx

I had scan on Wednesday and my baby is fine. Before scan a doctor said that baby is 12 weeks and 3 days old but after scan she changed her mind and baby is 13 weeks and 2 days old. So due date is now 14th of May. It's mean that I got pregnant just after my period. Hmm I still think my due date is 20th of May and baby is just a little bit bigger ;)
