    Yep I was also putting off telling about my BFP too. Close work friends knew (great for getting help lifting things!). I told my sister at 12 and my parents at 20, then others.
    I also had weekly scans til 16 weeks, by then I could feel the occasional flutter. Too stressful telling folks earlier!!

    yinyang, many thanks for your thoughts and congrats xx

    Default Long Term IVFers finally pregnant!

    I would have loved not to tell anyone until well after 12 weeks but we need so much help with DD that its nearly impossible to do a cycle in secret we tried but DH's family can't keep secrets and they always tell each other lol.

    How is every one feeling? I am totally exhausted I am usually fine until lunch time but now I'm lucky to make it to 10.30 with out having to lie down after doing a couple of jobs. And being constantly nauseous I'm still struggling with a sip of water hopefully will only last a couple more weeks good times

    Starf1sh - I understand holding breathe and knicker watch. Thank goodness you said that because I thought I was abnormal the amount of times I went to the toilet looking for things. Before the 12 and 18 weeks scans I cried before I left because I was so nervous. I also understand your concerns about other problems such as Asherman's syndrome. I don't have that but I had pre cervical cancer removed last year so now I have to have my cervix measured throughout the pregnancy to make sure it is the right length. All I can say is try not to let those things take away from the joy of the pregnancy. Enjoy it as much as you can and as you say you have the secret weapon this time!

    Loveabug - Yay you're here! Congratulations. In my first trimester I used to get tired like that. I had to have a sleep in the afternoons except on work days when I struggled through feeling tired and sick. Hopefully you will be ok soon.


    AFM - Had a scan this week and saw the little man. His feet were up by his ears! I asked the ob if that was normal but apparently they are very flexible at this stage. Maybe he will be a gymnast. Later on in the scan he got bored and moved sideways with his back to us!

    Loveabug, I can imagine it is harder to keep things under wraps when you are feeling completely rubbish and then have to peel yourself off to the sofa to attend to the needs of your little one. Hope your DH is being a great help to you. Only a few more days till your scan

    , you might relate to this....dealing with my parents (and managing their expectations) has definitely been a very challenging part of all the highs and lows of our long journey. As time has gone on I have told them less and less because of how disappointed they get (mum in partic), however I also notice that telling them less only serves to increase their anxiety OR they try and seek info from other sources like my sister!

    I think most of our family and some friends had given up on us, and particularly thought the nail was in the coffin when I found out I had Asherman's, so reactions to the news have been quite extreme (lots of crying!) which is also probably why I am struggling to let the cat out of the bag! How is your beautiful boy doing?

    , Nah you are in good company Having to wait 4 weeks for another OB appointment became all too much for me this week. I also had an awful night of nightmares dreaming over and over again that I wasn't pregnant anymore. I ended up getting in to see the midwife at OB's clinic the next morning and she was really great, listened to bub's heartbeat (which did take a while to find on the doppler! was the 1st time they had used it on me) but all was normal and I felt like I could breathe again. We decided to continue with weekly midwife appointments until my next one with OB.

    How has it gone with OB measuring cervical length and how early did they start checking this? This is something we also need to keep an eye on due to the number of dilations I have had from both D&C's and then surgeries, however cervical length looked good prior to falling pregnant. Look forward to hearing what tricks your little man will perform for you at your next scan!

    Anyone else have some pretty crazy dreams during their pregnancy? I also had one this week where I was pregnant with a cat!!! (We do have a much loved moggy) and I was worried the hospital wouldn't let me deliver there due to hygiene reasons! Wacky or what!??

    With DD I had bizarre dreams I don't really remember a lot some were really sad and I would wake balling my eyes out and my pillow would be drenched. This time crazy dreams haven't started yet!

    Starf1sh - My first cervical measurement was at 12 weeks and then again at 18 weeks. I will probably have another one in third trimester. Your dream about giving birth to cat made me laugh. I had a dream that I gave birth to a mini sumo wrestler! I have no idea what that is all about!

    Loveabug, I started giving solids about a month ago. He was really interested so I gave it a go. His favorite is banana. He is so keen for his porridge in the morning.

    Default Long Term IVFers finally pregnant!

    How's everyone going?

    Fionaalice - awww so cute!! We're at 4.5 months and dealing with the 4 month sleep regression at the moment where our wonderful baby who slept so well is now hard to settle and waking more at night. Do you use any particular sleep methodology?

    Ktking - really cruel but I didn't like coffee for the first few months BUT still loved the smell. Occasionally I'd try some but was disappointed every time.

    Haha Star - yes I did the underwear check for ages into my pregnancy before my brain finally accepted it was all going to be fine.
    Oh I had the placenta at the front too, so had less movement and sometimes none which was scary as I wanted ongoing confirmation that she was fine.

    Has anyone had any cravings? I didn't have any, just aversions to coffee and anything sweet, especially desserts.

    Marzi, we're in grobags too, we stopped swaddling early due to the hip dysplasia, we didn't want anything tight around her hips. Her latest achievement is to half turn in her cot so she is sideways, stick a grobag covered foot through a gap in the cot rails and somehow get stuck and complain. So we turn her and she goes straight back to the stuck position.
