Hey ladies, thought we could also chat over here now that we have got our bfp's, congratulations to us all. Hope we stay for the duration smile Feel so sick today, felt disheartened yesterday as I felt fine, serves me right confused

Champagnebubble Sun 09-Jun-13 19:44:59

Hello there!!!!!!

Feeling fine today, apart from the cramping......ughhhhhh.

mrscookie78 Sun 09-Jun-13 19:48:08

Yay, don't feel like Billy no mates now! I've had cramps and aches since Wednesday, guess its all the stretching as there's a lot of it to be done confused

Champagnebubble Sun 09-Jun-13 19:52:32

That's what I'm hoping! They are on and off but they are a bit more than 'mild', hope that's normal.......!!!!!

mrscookie78 Sun 09-Jun-13 20:06:51

Hmm think so as far as I know, if they get really bad or you have bleeding phone your doctors to get yourself checked out? That's what I've read on forumsconfused Is this your first champagne?

Hello ladies
Liking this new bus & also hoping I won't be kicked off anytime soon!
It's 4 months exactly since my last BFP which ended in MMC at 12 wk scan. Keeping fingers & toes crossed this is a sticky bean.
I might try and get an early scan to reassure - 9wks ish if we get that far.
Not really feeling anything so far but usually I don't before 6wks ish.
Are you ladies expecting DC 1 /2/3... This is hopefully dc2 for us. Have a dd nearly 2.
Hoping for happy healthy pregnancies for all on the bussmile

Champagnebubble Sun 09-Jun-13 20:18:44

Yep, it's my first! So everything is all strange and new!

They are like niggly pains but then they go away for a bit, sometimes soon after they start up and sometimes they don't! They don't make me feel sick or faint and I just got a few when eating my dinner and I carried on, so I guess they can't be that bad!! Never know how to judge/describe pain! I'm wondering whether they are linked to not drinking enough and when I do, needing, to er, pee blush. I will keep an eye out....I don't know why but I'm paranoid something is going to go wrong! I think I need to chill a bit as I have no reason to think that other than a bit of over googling about cramps! (shudder).

Hey there Alice! Glad you found us!! Sorry to hear about the MMC.....here's to us all having healthy pg's! I'd raise my glass of wine to that, but obv on the water now! Booo!

mrscookie78 Sun 09-Jun-13 20:18:46

I'm sorry to hear that Alice, fingers crossed for a sticky bean, I hope we all get sticky beans.
we have a D's who's 19mths, he was breech and then a csection. and I'm in the south east ish. That's me introduced wink

homebyninethirty Sun 09-Jun-13 20:39:47

Hello everyone and congratulations! smile
This is also my first and am also getting the occasional sort of niggly cramp-like pains...Am naturally a bit of a worrier so am trying to keep calm and say no to Google smile
Have you told anyone in real life yet?

bugsyburge Sun 09-Jun-13 20:47:25

hey ladies
this is my first too, not really sure when I'm due because of irregular periods, clear blue days conception was 1-2 weeks ago but last period was around 7 weeks ago so I'm somewhere between 3weeks & 8weeks I think confused

is there a way to find out for def before the 12week scan?

Champagnebubble Sun 09-Jun-13 20:50:50

I've just been looking at private scans in my area! £75.00 and can be done from 6 weeks. It is soooooo expensive, but it could really put my mind at rest. Oh gord, I'm such a worry wart, but if I'm still worrying about cramps in 2 weeks and they keep happening apparently they can tell you if they can see any problems.....someone tell me I'm mad.....LOL. Poor DH, I'm sensing this is the only way I'm going to be reassured before the NHS scan.....!

Champagnebubble Sun 09-Jun-13 20:52:14

I've not told anyone in RL yet. I want to....but I sorta want to keep the news to ourselves for a bit longer....in case.

alicebear Sun 09-Jun-13 21:37:37

We've not told anyone in RL yet & hope we can keep secret for as long as poss. Difficult though as a few people knew last time & during the mc we said we'd try again sometime so think people will be looking out for signs.
I remember having stretchy/crampy feelings with dd1 - I think it is actually from the uterus starting to stretch. Maybe not so apparent in subsequent pregnancies as everything's already been stretched.
Try not to worry its probably all fine.

Champagnebubble Sun 09-Jun-13 21:50:02

Thanks Alice - I appreciate you saying that. I just hope it stops soon as it is concerning. But then when/if it does, I think I'll be paranoid too as I don't have any pg symptoms really! I don't think I can win!

It's great you can share the news on here though huh?! It feels less like you'll suddenly blurt it out in RL!

mrscookie78 Sun 09-Jun-13 22:22:30

I've told a couple of my closest friends who knew I was trying anyway, I haven't told my mum yet as she went away the day after I found out and is away for a few weeks, I thought it would be best to tell her when they got back.

I'm sure if you Google uterus stretching, it will come up with so much about ladies having aches etc.

crikey, don't eat choka block brownie squares and then drink milk. envy

Welcome to the new ladies, sorry I can't see the replies hence I end up doing a few posts.

we avoided an early scan last time, but think I may just have to Google prices, think there's one where there do a peekaboo scan so you can all is there and OK. grin

mrscookie78 Sun 09-Jun-13 22:24:31

I'm a worrier too, and will worry about everything. I think its just normal especially in pregnancy, we think its bad now, wait till we have the babies and the worrying changes to a different type!!

homebyninethirty Mon 10-Jun-13 00:15:15

mrscookie so true about the worrying!

Am doing a masters part time and have some exams coming up soon...how impossible is it to keep off MN when you've got revision to do?! smile

I've only told my best friend so far - she had a baby quite recently so it's great to be able to talk her ear off about it...

alicebear Mon 10-Jun-13 10:17:40

I think mrscookie is right we all worry about every little niggle on pregnancy. It's only natural as we all want our babies out healthy at the end of it. It's probably worse with a first as it's all so unknown. I was a bit more relaxed last time but then it dud go wrong. Trying to just take it a day at a time now.
I have bitten the bullet & bkd a pvt early scan on 12 Jul - if I get that far will be nearly 9 wks. For now just hoping I get to that point & then get to see a heartbeat... Feel a bit better to have that arranged in just over a month.
Hope everyone feeling ok today?

mrscookie78 Mon 10-Jun-13 12:25:15

Good luck with your masters Home

Feel sick still but i guess its all good hmm

Good for you re booking the early scan Alice Im tempted to get a scan early, but for me its just impatience. Will see if oh agrees with me! I dont have my first mw appointment till 16th July, ill be nearly 10 weeks then.

Champagnebubble Wed 12-Jun-13 11:03:07

Is anyone feeling super duper hormonal? I'm laughing one moment and crying the next, worse than any PMT! Cramps still there and nausea mild hardly any...! Hope everyone OK. BFPs from the June bus have slowed down haven't they.

Champagnebubble Wed 12-Jun-13 11:05:50

Bugsy I went to my doc and she worked it out for me - 12th Feb! I was worried about cramps and ick, sorry yellow cm. All fine apparently in case anyone else worried.

mrscookie78 Wed 12-Jun-13 13:17:09

I'm wondering about going to the doctors to work out my dates too as I don't know when my af was going to turn up? I get a different date from my last lmp, concieve date and cycle date.

glad the doctor told you it was normal cm grin

mrscookie78 Wed 12-Jun-13 13:18:58

yes there doesn't seem to be many more, cant believe how many we had so quickly. Think most people have moved onto the Feb thread ( I have too but its huge grin ) feeling OK here at the moment, have a sore throat though and hoping I don't get a cold confused

bugsyburge Wed 12-Jun-13 13:25:21

I'm being dense, what does cm stand for?

mrscookie78 Wed 12-Jun-13 13:30:40

cervical mucous grin
