Welcome Hockeychick and Miriam!!! and CONGRATULATIONS!!! I was the same (with this one) 2 tests just to make sure i wasn't seeing things - even got my sister to take a peak just to make sure i wasnt making it up in my head haha.. However i have been one of the lucky ones and feel pregnant 1st try!!
12 week scan will be just before christmas for me so am hoping they fast track the results so i am able to tell family on christmas day.

How is everyone feeling today? Me - a lil off (i seem to have good day then bad day etc) but i feel a PJ day coming on ;)

If you are wanting to join the Private/Secret FB page - please PM Kashmir or myself with your FB name link and we will add you :)

Congrates to Hockeychick and Miriam and who ever else i have missed. Its so hard for me to keep track with forms And lots of sticky baby dust to all, esp those who have been trying for a while. :D

Today has been 'seedy' to say the least!! Oh Eeek for me pretty much every day is a PJ day lol, even before we found out we were preg again LOL, unless we need to go out for swimming, shopping etc LOL..

We are real home bodies me and ds.. Toys and mess everywhere then a quick clean before Daddy comes home LOL

Hi all & congrats to those that have already posted!

I left it a bit to sign up - 1st one and was trying to get my head around it! Similar to Anna, I went for my scan and found I was only 4.5 weeks. Had another scan yesterday and saw the heartbeat which made me feel much better :) Due date 3 July and boy has the morning sickness kicked in (Or should I say all day sickness....)

Welcome Hamster (and yes Kashmir im the same as you - very hard to keep up with lol) so welcome to everyone else that i have missed **hangs head**

Ahh tell me about it Hamster - all day is just not fun - i was able to have a little sleep in today as hubby got up to Mr 12 months up but feel i could still sleep for another 7 hours!! maybe a nap this arvo?

I was the same with 1st pregnancy (lost at 6.5 weeks) went for a scan and was far too early so they rebooked me. Unfortunately didnt get the chance to see lil baby again but IMO everything happens for a reason..

Lovely day here in my corner of the world so off out for a yard day i think :)

Hope you all have a lovely day xx

Hi Everyone. We found out a week ago that we're expecting out first bubs in July. So many things to decide! (like do we go for a midwife or an OB?).
Im looking forward to getting to know you all over the next few months.

I forgot to explain - the reason I'm considering an OB is because both of my sisters had very tricky births, and my family have all suggested that I go to a specialist, just to be super safe. I just don't know if that's safe or paranoid.

wow, so many posts since I last checked! welcome to all the new mums to be! finding second time round morning sickness is not so bad, perhaps it's being able to rest often and eating every couple hours (even just a piece of bread) has really helped!! haven't thrown up in 2 days!! Congrats Jen! It's such a personal decision, if you've had family history of tricky births you may feel it gives you more piece of mind, but they do have specialists in the hospital (if you plan to birth in hospital) and it saves you $2500. Plus the specialist can't guarantee they would actually be in the room with you when you are giving birth anyway. But sometimes it makes all the difference to have those extra appts during your pregnancy to confirm all will be well on your big day. All the best to all the other mums with all day sickness!!

I booked in my first MW appt in 2 friday's time. It's nice to have little milestones to look forward to rather than 12 weeks which still seems so far away

Has anyone else got dry itchy skin?! I have no sickness yet (many foods make me feel ill but fortunatly no vomiting yet!) but my skin is soo bad! It is just flaking off and after a shower I have to spend about an hour or so in my dressing gown before dressing otherwise I just get soooo itchy!

Hello all expecting mummas! Found out two weeks ago that we are pregnant with number two. I think I will be due around 4th July. Happened a little quicker than I was hoping but very excited :) DS will be turning the big 1 in 10 days - eek! Was strange as I didn't really feel pregnant this time, but did a test anyway when period was only about a day late. Very surprised to get a strong line straight away. Morning sickness hit full force last Saturday and I spent the day with my head over the toilet! Has eased off each day since as I've got better at managing it. So that's a relief. Was getting freaked out that it might be twins! Double hormone level = strong line on test = double morning sickness. I would love to join private group and Facebook group. Will PM now if I can figure out how... If you don't hear from me soon please someone come looking for me! ;)

Hi EmmaF and Jen! exciting times for us all :) yes I find if you find a way to manage your morning sickness it helps, start to know what foods sit well etc. I have been up and down today but on the whole not too bad at all. 7 weeks tomorrow..LouLou definately agree, milestones help SO much right! I next see my midwife Dec 10th. Mrs S - a little bit of itchy skin...but I when was first pregnant I had just returned from Gold Coast so don't know if it may have been because of the sun burn too! :) My skin is a lot drier in general though, have also started getting a lot more pimples! I look awful! Just cant wait for people to know and can explain a lot haha. Have a nice night everyone

Hi Anna! Yes, am very excited - having the scan at 415. My mum's coming to this one too and being her first grandchild, she can hardly contain her excitement either :) Sorry to hear you're not feeling well - I have had the constant nausea all day too - started last week but I haven't thrown up yet. I have been coming to work as only started here a month ago and don't want to take time off!! (I fell pregnant my second day here lol)I am dreading the day (if it comes) that I get so sick I can't come to work - as what if it lasts for weeks? What would I tell my work?! I am hoping that you are feeling better very soon. I have certain foods that I find easier to eat than others, boiled eggs and apples are a go at the moment. Last week I had a day where I craved gherkins and the next day it was black licorice - both things that I don't normally eat!! Hhmm, gotta go with it I guess!

Wow 1st time mum you are exactly the same as me! I only started my job here in Wellington mid Sept. so was totally scared to tell my boss, I did when I found out just to put her in the picture and to have someone at work who knows, she was amazing and happy for me, assuring me that any time I need off to have scans/appointments to go for it - so thats lucky. Although the first few weeks I felt fine and hasn't been until this past week nausea is grad. getting worse so yes, I am the same as you in thinking - what if you actually physically cant work!!! Just going to have to drag my self in from tomorrw I think... and I definately think it makes a difference depending on how much sleep you get, food you eat/dont eat and exercise/fresh air...today all cooped up but just cant do anything really. Would you feel comfortable telling someone at your work?
I am due July 8th :) :)Yum your boiled eggs actually sound amazing - ! perhaps a dinner option for me hehe.All the best for the scan! Its so exciting.

Hey ladies.
Took another preg test yesterday, after I didn't quite believe the first one on Friday! And its officially true! Due around July 22nd. :)

Having lots of trouble trying not to arouse suspicion, as of course I'm no longer drinking alcohol and only having the occasional weak coffee now.

How do you guys get out of the "why aren't you drinking alcohol" question? I've been on a healthy, get fit routine the last couple of months, so I say I'm not drinking as I want to lose weight and not have so much sugar! I tend to overcompensate with too many excuses!

A friend said a few months back, you say you're on anti-botics and if they ask what for, you say you don't want to know, or girlie stuff!

Considering I won't be over the first trimester until mid January, Xmas and New Year are the worst time to try and keep my secret, and not drink!
