Lovely to have you join us MrsMin
I didn't get many pre-BFP symptoms except it felt like AF was coming and she never did. My main clue was I had a tiny amount of implantation bleeding, like so little I'd have missed it if I wasn't TTC and symptom spotting. As I never spot before AF, when it didn't turn into proper bleeding I thought I had to be pregnant.
My symptoms now really come and go. I think they were worse at 5 weeks than they are now at 7! My boobs have gone up a cup size but they aren't sore. I get waves of nausea and had a couple of days with it constantly. I went through a 'very hungry caterpillar' stage where I ate everything in sight. Now I'm normally hungry but nothing feels appealing to eat. I've also been very tired and going to bed early, although not as early as some people- my sister said she was in bed by 7pm every night during the first trimester!
I do worry that my symptoms aren't getting worse and I've not been sick as morning sickness is supposed to be a good sign. However I had a scan at 6 weeks due to cramping and all was fine then, they could see a heartbeat. So I'm trying to chill out and count my lucky stars I'm not puking yet!
Mrs17 so glad all is okay! At least if you have any more bleeding now you know why. Isn't it so difficult wondering if everything is all right when you can't see or feel whats going on in there?
MrsMin no pain relief, that sounds horrible! Poor you.
I totally understand what you mean about some good news in a couple of bad years, but that's actually the reason I'm not telling my parents yet as they have also had two really hard years. I know I'm probably being paranoid but the last thing I'd want to lay on them is more bad news if something was to happen to the baby. I can totally understand how lovely its been for you to tell them though and I can't wait!
I've told only my sister as its nice to have her support and she was the only one who knew we were TTC. So far she's bought half my babies wardrobe and has scrounged a cot and a 'next to me cot' from her friends lol!! By the time baby comes I think she'll have my whole nursery sorted.
