Congrats maybebaby3, am due with our first on the 2nd March so hoping for a couple of good weeks ahead before our 1st scan on the 16th July.

Have you had your first HCG blood tests done yet, FX but sounds like a BFP to me, even if only faint

Hi ladies found put last Friday I'm pregnant with my first! Been on clomid the last three months and I was lucky enough to fall on the third cycle. Having my dating scan on 16th July but my gp put me at approx 5.5 weeks so due day approx late feb- early march.
Have u ladies started looking for a midwife?
I never realized how much needs to be done eg what not to eat, finding a midwife, going for scans etc. it's a bit overwhelming!

Hi Spunky nice to see you here too, the threat of IUI seemed enough to get us moving so have alittle idea of the FS aspects and am so thrilled for you.
We have a history of MC so are going to use an OB. Will be using Origins in Mt Eden, I happen to know someone who works there who I trust completely and she highly recommends the 2 OB's the work there - also hubby is heading to police college in August so we feel better having a constant specialist available too.
I also have my first scan on 16th July so will be an exciting day for us both.
The food thing I am finding tough, have lost a bit of weight simply because I am concentrating so hard on what I can and can't eat - you are right this whole thing is overwhelming and we are trying not to get too far ahead of ourselves as we MC at week 6 18months ago so a bit cautious at the moment.

Welcome Guest_82479 congratulations to you, I know how hard it is to try and keep focused on the positives, I have had 2 MCs and last week was a real struggle for me but the support on all of the threads has been great and my mind was put to rest when I got my 2nd HCG results.

I had similar symptoms last week, tender breasts and abdo discomfort, always felt like I was going to get AF. Felt a little queezy this morning but am actually feeling really good now. I am forcing myself to drink 3pump bottles of water a day and eating lots of fruit inc Prunes and that has really helped my discomfort.

Let us know how your scan goes and try to relax, easier said than done I know. FX for smooth sailing for us all

Congrats on Ur bfp's! Looking forward to going through this journey with u all.
My boobies r so sore today!
Having my first apt with a possible midwife this morning. See if she's right for me.
Question - can u take too much folic acid? I'm taking blackmores pregnancy and breast feeding gold which gives me 500mcg per day, but my gp also gave me a script of 800mcg per day.

Hey spunky the nurse at Fertility Associates said to take a min .80g so your 800mcg from your doctor would be the one I would be taking.
I am on Elevit daily, can't recall the amount of Folic Acid in it but is recommended by FA, they said often the store bought ones do not have enough Folic Acid so I would def use the Dr's one.

Just found out my HCG level is 5700 so im going earlier for my scan - tomorrow!! so hope everything is ok :)

Water baby - so glad that your second test was good :) puts your mind at rest, i cant wait until tomorrow :)

i only started taking folic acid this week (5).. hope its not to late, but we weren't planning a family this year, and i only just found out so i guess well have to wait and see.

Has anyone experienced integrity midwives? im going to meet with them, there are so many, i dont no how to choose!! :(

Hi guest
Picking a midwife is a little daunting so Ive found out. Was given a list of names and numbers of recommended ones so I called them all to book a time to go in and find out a little more about them.
It's been really good as I've already crossed some off as I didn't feel I had a connection with them.
You just need to find one that works best for you and who u get on well with :)

You will need to feel comfortable with them as they will be all up in your business in the not too distant future

You need to "Join" OhBaby - go to the Home Page and where it says login click join and follow instructions.
If you have already joined you should be able to do this under your "Profile" - hope that helps.
Calling you Guest_82479 isn't quite the same

Also the Lilypie thing threw me for a while but finally figured it out.

When you go to the area where you get the "Get Ticker Code" there is above the code in purple a whole heap of "garbage" and beside the one that says Forum Signatures" click on the one that says PseudoHTML and that will give you new Code Snippet, paste that to your signature and it should work.

If u ladies have a iPhone, get the app pregnancy sprout. I've found it very helpful and gives an illustration of Ur baby through the weeks. There's a free version which is what I have and it's good

Hey there Spunky and Guest,

I'm exactly 3 weeks pregnant...first time, due 19 March. Sounds like I need to start looking for a midwife.

I'm very excited, nervous but the hardest thing is not telling my work colleagues as it's very early days still and I'm worried something may happen, but trying to be postive.

It's great to hear there's others that are going through a pregnancy at the same time as me!

Guest, if you go to Edit Profile you can change your your "guest" name :)
