    Hi guys i really cautiously join here but i do need some advice!!
    i found out im probably pregnant sunday and its v v early days and im in shock!! total disbelief and shock. we have been ttc for 19 months, this was the 19th cycle
    i went out sunday and bought a general multivitamin for pregnancy that has omega 3 in..
    i also wondered how normal is it to get on / off cramps, i can be sitting normally like now no issues then suddenly its a oh now that one hurts and tho in some ways it does feel different in other ways its like im about to bleed pain! how normal is this?
    I couldnt sleep last night for keeping thinking that when i go loo in morning ill be bleeding so i am genuinely knax now - i dont wanna be so anxious!
    Also i dont really have any symptoms, its like make me feel pregnant please.. all i have is hot flushes. lol, so its like 20 outside and i would normally find this lovely but i feel like its 25+ my face , head is pretty much always feeling hot.
    i dont have sore boobs, i havent been sick, i am getting cramps and i do have a wet'ish feeling which doesnt go down too well with me cause i get this with af as well!!

    ill be due around 22nd but please dont put me on here yet - just not ready for that - seems to good to be true as its also pretty darn close to my birthday!

    Hi everyone :)
    Cautiously adding my EDD as 14th March. Had my BFP a week ago but can’t get excited. We’ve been TTC for just over a year, pregnant once but MC at 9 weeks. I’m in the UK so no scan until 11-13 weeks (currently 5w2d). I have very sore boobs and a lot of nausea to the point where I’m off work - not sure if I just have a cold (or just anxious!) as very stuffed up and didn’t sleep at last night. I want to be more excited but for now I’m just watching and waiting!!!xxxx

    Well im booked back in for 2 weeks to just get a clear view of when im roughly due because i was on the menopause for endometriosis so i have got caught right away after thats worn off so im going to say if you are worried id go for 7 week should get an idea then but if you can last till 8 weeks you should see alot more i wouldnt pay for 6 week get in woth your midwife im sure she will help put you at rest i have had a few MCs so thats why i am monitored and because of endo ... its such a grueling wait isnt it! I hate the unknown im so impatient! Haha try stay positive in this together! X

    Awww get into the docs get ur folic acid and vitamins get ur midwife in and its totally normal to be this scared its also your hormones rushing allover the show! So soon its very surreal you have no reason at this point to worry but we all do its overwhelming its alot to take in try hold out for the 8 week be so much more worth it to see a better picture go on pampers week by week calender its really good for tips but dont google its never good stay on here and chat to the ladies xx

    once the doctors have agreed everythings fine im defo doing a app for a week by week update thing!!!
    are you going to the doctors?
    im nervous (again) because during fertility testing i got told my progesterone was low. as in i wasnt ovulating (but i was).. so i do have a concern my progesterone isnt up to much which is also why im going so i can perhaps be given something for that

    Oh no! I don’t know what is worse, heat in first tri or 3rd tri!
    Always said I didn’t want to be huge in summer but not sure it’s much better when you’re trying to hide how crappy you feel!

    I would expect your bp to rise slightly, but not excessively although I’m no expert. Good that’s you’ve got a monitor and can keep an eye on it. Hopefully you’ll settle into pregnancy and worry less so it’ll come down naturally.

    Trust me i wouldnt worry about your blood pressure thats because you have stressed yourself out too much just get some relaxing music on its all the panic i promise you anxiety is the worst and for now take the positive the doc wasnt concerned about u and rushed you to hospital they sent you home if it was major you would have gone to a&e trust me you will get through this do whatever it is you need to relax please for your own sanity take it easy and for the little one and if you need meds its not all bad i take anxiety tablets and im here with you please get some rest from your own mind i know its hard because i torture myself too xx
