    Hi ladies!

    Very excited to join you all in Tri1! I'm just over 4 weeks pregnant (I think!) not sure on exact dating until I can see a midwife.

    So far, have suffered quite a bit with morning sickness (misleading name for it... I've felt sick all day long!!) for the last 3 days or so.

    Anyone around the same time as me?

    Hey Ab,
    Im just under 4 weeks.. also all new to me, this is my first and feeling very overwhelmed by it all at the minute! I haven't had any major symptoms yet, just a headache and I've been very moody! I'm just taking one day at a time, I'm so scared of getting too excited yet!

    xx

    Hi ladies, first and foremost, congrats to you both!! This is also my first and I've barely had any symptoms. Makes me worry a bit, sometimes I wonder if I'm really pregnant at all! :( First echo is in 2 weeks. How about you?

    Hi Kitana, congrats to you too!!

    I've felt OK today, so makes me worry but baby keeps reminding me that he/she is there with the little cramps I keep getting (don't worry I have seen a doctor about it who reassured me that he has no concerns).

    Generally I've had sickness, extreme fatigue and just a general rubbish feeling alongside having cramps. I don't think I'm one of the lucky ones!! It is however lovely to "feel" pregnant, very exciting!! Booked my first midwife appt for a few weeks time!

    How are you feeling? I wouldn't worry about not having many symptoms, every woman is different! How far gone are you?

    Congratulations Ab and welcome!

    I had no symptoms at all at this stage with my second baby, i wasn't sick or tired or anything until 8 weeks. Also had very few symptoms with my first. So don't worry hun, although I know it's difficult not to compare, maybe you're one of the lucky ones who will sail through pregnancy. I'm 5+1 with this baby and again hardly any symptoms so far, a couple of small episodes of nausea and sore boobs but nothing else!

    Thanks ladies, I do feel exhausted some days but that's about it. Maybe it's going to kick in later. I'm only 6+5 at the moment. It's all a bit fictional you know, I haven't had a scan yet, I haven't seen or heard anything yet!! Plus boyfriend doesn't see anything yet and isn't very comprehensive about me being so tired.. Men... :wall2:

    Congratulations to all!!

    I'm 6+3 now and symptoms wise I've had sore boobs for about 3 weeks and a metallic taste in my mouth. Also had dentist check up last week and had to tell her as she wanted to do X-Ray's. She said she can see my gums pocketing already and she said its so important to keep up your 6 months check ups when pregnant as prone to gum disease.

    Haven't had morning sickness but I have felt a bit nauseous in be evening. Was watching a cooking show last night and the shiney, fatty meat made me feel a bit ill!! Normally it would just make me hungry!!

    If you wait till at least 6 weeks and a half, there will normally already be a heart beat if you got your dates right obviously. My OB gyn told me to come between week 7 and 8 so that you can already see the heart beat. I booked on 7+1 obviously!! :lol:

    Hehe glad I'm not the only over-excited one!! I honestly just can't wait!!!

    Is your midwife appt at 7+1 or is that your scan?

    My first scan! Just saw my bean on the screen. I cried a bit when I saw the heart beat! She said it was a good strong heart beat. It was such an emotional moment! Now I have to wait 5 weeks for the next scan. Boooo! But we will do the NIPTest on december the first to check for down syndrome. We will also know the gender then! :cheer: When is yours?

    I haven't had a scan yet, desperate for one though!! I'm only 5+1! My midwife appt will be 7+4 so I'm not sure when my scan will be. Think I'm going to book an early one privately!
