I'm a newbie to this site completely!
I have just found out I'm pregnant with my first and due on 10 May! My husband and I got married in January and have been trying since. Very exciting times!
Be great to hear if anyone knows of any good midwives in the Porirua area?? Very keen to hear any recommendation from anyone smile
It's sooo hard keeping it to ourselves and not telling anyone!!
It's going to be so hard to wait another 7 weeks!!
Firstly congratulations to all the mother's.
Hope you don't mind me joining in. Just found out I'm 3 weeks pregnant. I have a little boy who is almost 4. This is my first pregnancy in Aus. as my first was born in Ireland.
Seems to be a bit of a different process, medical care wise. Was told the scan is at 8 weeks & a down's syndrome test at 12 weeks along with another scan. Is that normal or is it just when your over a certain age?
I didn't think I'd feel nervous second time round but I guess the first trimester is always the hardest.
i organised the scan for yesterday as i was super excited and eagar for yesterday, went and got it done in the arvo... well the radiographer couldnt find anytthing in my uterus, not even the sac. this alone may of worried me a little but he found a cyst on my right ovary. he got someone more experienced to overlook it and they both said that it looked like a folicle (plausable as i have pcos) but he said that they cant be 100% sure and if i have any pain or bleeding go straight to the ER. so of course now im playing the horrible waiting game. went to the docs today and got bloods done as he wants to confirm my pregnancy but he doesnt plan to do repeat bloods and said hes just going to organise another scan in 2 weeks.... im going to die waiting that long.
i tried taking my mind of it and studied all this arvo and played with my 3 year old but its so hard not to think about. on top of that the hospital i was praying to go to as i went there with noah rang to book me in. i was so excited because they are a specialist public hospital who dont accept many normal pregnancies so i was really happy when she said i could attend the midwife clinic there.. she booked and appt and we even spoke about water births... was so bitter sweet to talk about cos on one hand i was super excited but thinking i was a bit of a fraud cos of what im going through atm.
has anyone else booked into there hospitals???? planning anything in paticular for there birth?????????? water, hypno or csection ect.
A bit about me, I'm Danielle. I'm 24 and DH is 28. We have two adorable boys already, 5 & 3 and this will be our final additional to our little family. Pink would be lovely, but really just hoping for a happy and healthy bubba.
Not entirely sure when I'm due, thinking 18th May 2012 based on my LMP.. however my cycle has been all over the shop since having my IUD removed in March. I dreamt last night that I was pregnant so bought a test while I was out today. I did a First Response HPT and two dark lines popped up straight away, but I think I'll do a digital test tomorrow.
I dont feel any different yet. I have little nigglings and sensitive nipples. Fingers crossed for no MS this time.
Wishing you all healthy pregnancies and sending loads of sticky baby dust xx
Welcome and congrats to all the newbies!
Not much to report here, I had ms and was really tired for a couple of days and now nothing except for sore boobs, my mind is going into overdrive thinking that something is wrong and I still have 6 weeks until I see my Ob! This wait is going to kill me. I'm sure everything is fine but I can't help thinking the worst.
Does everyone want to join a facebook group or are we happy to just do it on here for the time being? I'm happy to organise a private group if you are all interested. I'm happy either way.
Justdoit - fingers crossed it's just too early for them to see anything. Please keep us posted on how you go.
I'm off to eat ice cream and watch Rafters.
Hope everyone is having a good week.
