Well decided to put my brave pants on and start a thread for the ladies due in July and August 

Will add due dates when we're safely past 12 weeks 

So as I put on other thread I've booked a scan for next Friday at 4pm so counting down the days til that, really hope all is well

Anyone else had any weird symptoms..

This is possibly tmi but my nipples have doubled in size and my boobs have started growing as well That and this weird vibrating sensation in my abdomen   

Hope we all have a happy and healthy 9 months

    I've been worrying as I feel really normal today - boobs are a tiny bit sore but not too bar & I'm not as tired as I have been. Of course I'm now thinking there's something wrong!

    I'm still really struggling when I brush my teeth - it makes me gag, but no sickness yet. I'm only 6+2 though so plenty of time for it to kick in.

    Scan at EPU on Monday - I'm so anxious :-(

  • I know what you mean MrsE, Hubby said can you wait for your nhs scan, I was like no chance 

    Desperate to know everything is ok and how many there is  I'll be 12 weeks bang on Christmas week so am thinking my nhs scan will be after Christmas, which is a pain.

    Not long now though for you scan i'm sure everything is fine.


  • MrsE2016MrsE2016 Posts: 1,206 New bride

    I'm 12 weeks on the 20th Dec so I'm hoping we can squeeze in before Christmas (all being well!)

    Do you have your midwife appointment booked?  

  • No haven't booked one yet. Will probably sort that next week 


  • Hi ladies! 

    If fertility friend is right I'm due on 22nd of July! I'e booked my scan for 12th of Jan and midwife appointment is 20th of December. 

    My boobs are still really tender and achey and my stomach is stretching and sore. As this is my second I'm sure I'll start to expand a bit quicker :/

    Finding myself a bit more emotional than usual...peeing a LOT and also sneezing a lot??? Explain that one haha

  • Hi ladies 

    Hope everyone is having a good Saturday so far. We will be in our new bedroom tonight but not with the mattress we bought long story there! 

    We are also babysitting my dads two 6 month old pups which is interesting shall we say, they like to whine a lot and also like being let out really early so I've been going to bed early to try and get enough sleep. 

    It's raining here so looks like a mostly inside day 

    MrsMc sorry would of left you to do the honours if I'd known you were happy to start a thread  Great that you know your dates already, I won't get my 12week scan date til after I've seen midwife which I can't do until i'm 8-9 weeks, am going to book my booking in appointment next week

    I'm still getting the twitching in my belly seems to be nearly non-stop hope that means they/it is nice and strong. Anybody getting this? I had it a bit last time but nowhere near as much

    Am counting down the days til next Friday  

  • MrsE2016MrsE2016 Posts: 1,206 New bride

    I'm getting some cramping but it's not too painful. Hoping We see a little heart fluttering on Monday! 

  • Yeah mrsL I am getting sort of popping cramps in different places. I think thats the bean burrowing  (that' kid of what it feels like) but I dunno. 

    My wrists and fingers are also sore which must be the start of the stretching hormone reaching my muscles. I didn' enjoy that part last time! 

    I've completely lost my appetite unless it's fish and chips lol 

    Good luck for Monday MrsE xxx

  • MrsMc doesnt sound like a bad appetite to have 

    MrsE not long now til your scan im sure you will see a heartbeat 

    Well hubby just treated me to breakfast in bed  still need more furniture for new room.

    Tummy still vibrating loads

    Hi girls, I suppose I will tentatively join this thread 🙈

    Ovia and Glow Nurture put me at 4 + 4 today and my EDD is the 18th or 19th of July depending which one you believe. I realise this will change with time though. 

    I meet my midwife on the 30th (7 + 1) and once my husband get back 2 weeks tomorrow and he actually knows we’re expecting, I’ll see what he thinks about booking an early reassurance scan. I don’t really want to tell anyone else before we’ve seen if we definitely have a heartbeat, but eith party season approaching I think it’s going to be too hard to hide it from at least my family because they know I love a wine especially around Christmas!

    I haven’t really had any symptoms so far apart from period-like cramps every evening which were worrying at first but if you go by Google seem to be very common up until around 8 weeks. 

    Other than that ive just been trying to keep really active, working out most days and eating right while I can, before the fatigue, morning sickness and cravings all start!

    Is everyone enjoying their weekends? 

    Good luck for tomorrow MrsE, if I don’t hear from you before 😊

  • RS2017RS2017 Posts: 198

    Just jumping thread to wish mrsE the best of luck for tomorrow xxx

  • Hi MrsDee!! 

    I've just went and calculated my dates and I'm a bit miffed my midwife and scan are later than 8 and 12 weeks 😬 wonder if that's just because they don't have earlier appointments. 

    I also have really persistent period cramp 😑 the sneezing has gone but my boobs still ache :( 

    The craving for fish seems to have spread to any fish. Apart from salmon....nothing can make me eat salmon 😂

    Good luck tomorrow MrsE!

  • Good luck MrsE 

    I'm feeling a bit anxious as not getting many symptoms I know some people don't can't help but worry though. Roll on friday 

    Wanted to hold out longer for first scan but feel like i've been waiting ages already.

    ets Welcome Mrs Dee 


  • MrsE2016MrsE2016 Posts: 1,206 New bride

    Scan went well - they've put me back slightly which apparently is quite common this early. I've got my dating scan booked for 2nd Jan so we may have a private scan before Christmas as we wanted to tell people then.

    Saw the yolk sac & even the flicker of a heartbeat which was amazing. It was very emotional! 

  • That's great MrsE  annoying that your scan isn't til after Christmas. What did they date you as?

    Tbh i'll probably go for another scan at 9 weeks providing all is well etc 

  • CFWCFW Posts: 234

    Thought i would join in this thread.. still getting my head around expecting! Congratulations everyone!

    I *think* I am roughly 6 and a half weeks which would make me due the first week of July. My first midwife appointment is a week today so will hopefully get an appointment for my first scan!

    Does anyone else feel the need to constantly want to check "its there"?? I have done so many pregnancy tests to keep checking! Clearly acting irrational might be my first symptom! :)  i don't really seem to have much symptoms at the moment - sore boobs, some cramping (really worrying at first!) but not much else although for some reason i have lost my appetite for bacon?? How is everyone else feeling? 

    How do you go about booking a scan before your NHS one? Didn't realise that was an option?!

  • MrsE2016MrsE2016 Posts: 1,206 New bride

    You can go to a private clinic for an early reassurance scan - mine was NHS as I had an ectopic last time so they scan early to check it's in the right place. 

    MrsLK they measured me at 6 weeks rather than 6+5 but apparently it's normal to be put back at this stage then forward again at the dating scan x 

  • That's great news MrsE! I bet it was emotional. I'e been checking all morning for your update and am over the moon for you!

    Welcome CFW! Unfortunately I don' have to check it' there cause I have never ending twinges and backache 😣 

    I seem to have went off chocolate! The nerve! Actually its everything thats relatively sweet that is putting me off but I cant get enough of fish. Even ate the skin off my seabass last night which id usually just give to the rats. 

    I think the sickness is rearing its head too. Was standing in work this morning and had an overwhelming urge to heave. Great. 

    I don't think I'll book an early scan and just wait till after Xmas. My SIL is preg with her first and when I told her I was TTC she was a bit put out and asked me to let her have 'her time it could have been completley hormonal but I just cant be bothered hijacking her thunder at Xmas. I' rather just wait untill it' all finished and everyone' back to normal and I think if I went for a scan I wouldn' be able to contain myself. I know it sounds wierd but for the peace of it all I think that's the better option! 

  • CFWCFW Posts: 234

    Thanks MrsMc2b2017! Not so good about the twinges and backache though! Hopefully the sickness doesn't catch up with you too much! I am really hoping I avoid that one. Have you told anyone at work yet? I'm worried about showing symptoms so i've been sneakily making decaf coffee when its my turn for a round and not taking any when its other peoples turn so no one suspects - not sure how long I can keep it up! 

    That sounds sensible! After all you don't want the added stress of SIL being put out (even if it is a bit irrational!). 


  • I haven't told work yet. I work close to where I live and someone would say something and it would get out lol. 

    I only told my mum last time early on and within minutes she' told her next door neighbour. Then a couple of days later my FiL was congratulated in the pub 🙄 albeit I dodged a bullet by denying all knowledge but it was still awkward!

    I will need to tell my manager soon...just so they can begin to arrange cover and (hopefully) get off my back for a while. Can't tell you how much I am looking forward to a whole year away from it all!!

  • Welcome CFW 

    Ah bit paranoid now that they won't see a heartbeat as i'll only be 6+2 on Friday although my cycle was going to be a 26 day one. Have booked my midwife appointment for 30th Nov 

    I did say I was going to wait til I was 8 weeks for first scan but am so impatient to know how many there is 

    MrsMc I went off sweet stuff last time, but so far don't seem to be put off anything, I do seem to feel starving one minute then bloated and full the next 

    This weeks already dragging  

  • MrsE2016MrsE2016 Posts: 1,206 New bride

    Mrs LK - I'm measuring 5+5 (a week behind what I thought but they said it's likely I'll be put forward at the dating scan as its more accurate) and we saw a heartbeat so I'm sure you will be fine xx


  • I hope so MrsE  otherwise i'll be kicking myself for not waiting longer, if it was upto me i'd have one a week I know a bit over the top  

    Bet you're pleased all is well and where it should be  Did you get a piccie? 

  • MrsE2016MrsE2016 Posts: 1,206 New bride

    Yes but at this stage it just looks like a blob! I'll try and upload... 

    We've decided we're definitely having a private scan before Christmas. There's a place local to us that a friend has recommended & it costs £45 so we can justify that expense. 

  • MrsL I think I am just as inpatient as you to find out how many there is!

  • MrsE2016MrsE2016 Posts: 1,206 New bride


    Here is our scan. It's very early so not much detail but where I've circled is where we saw the flicker of the heartbeat. It was amazing to see! 

  • Thats amazing MrsE. You can see a tiny bit of detail too xxx 

  • MrsE2016MrsE2016 Posts: 1,206 New bride

    Little 4mm baby! 

  • Lovely pic  amazing to think how small it is but already has a heart 

  • MrsDee7MrsDee7 Posts: 272 New bride

    Good morning ladies! At least that's Monday out of the way eh 

    Congratulations and welcome CFW! Fantastic news. I hope you have a healthy and happy 9 months.

    MrsE, I'm so pleased your scan went well. Did you have your husband with you? What was his reaction? 

    I phoned the private clinic near here yesterday to find out more about private scans, but they don't start doing them until 9 weeks "because it can do more harm than good any earlier". I thought that was a horrible way to put it and asked what they meant and they said that baby can be hard to pick up before this time and this causes unnecessary worry. Anyway, by the time I'm 9 weeks my husband will have been home and left again and I don't want to go without him, so I suppose that's the decision made for me - we'll be waiting until our 12 week NHS scan! The midwife will sort that out for me when I see her on the 30th (we're twins MrsLK). I just hope that when the date comes through its while hubs is home again - I'll have to wait and see I guess.

    I also went to pick up a pregnancy pack from my GP - not sure if everyone gets this, or if its just in Scotland - it's massive! It's really good though and has a few different leaflets in it which cover ante natal and physio classes provided by the NHS, one about where to give birth, one about diagnostic testing while you're pregnant, and a massive textbook sort of thing that covers pregnancy week-by-week. I was impressed! I've been reading the book in my bed at night
