Im 7 weeks 3 days pregnant with my first bubba! It took us 2 years to get this little one, and we couldnt be happier. I am due on the 6th of October 2013, and I am wondering if anyone is due around then as well?
Since about 4.5 weeks pregnant I have been dealing with HG (extreame sickness) and I have been admitted to hospital twice!
I have had to leave work all together, and I spend every day in bed all day and night, besides showering ect.
I am wondering when it will get better?
I am throwing up and gagging all day long, but finally managing to keep a bit of juice down and some cereal. I havent been able to take my prenatal vitamins since about 6 weeks pregnant.... is this really going to affect bub? I was taking them since before I was pregnant....
Also, how do I get one of those ticker things for how many weeks i am along?
Your poor thing, MS is horrible! It's hard to say when it will ease. They say around 12 weeks. With my first I think it was around 16 weeks and this baby it was 9 weeks!
I've been lucky though and it hasn't been super bad...so I really hope yours doesn't stick around long, it's no fun at all.
Not taking the vitamins won't hurt the baby, I know a girl who never took them with her first pregnancy and had a healthy boy. Her second pregnancy, she didn't bother either and had a healthy pair of twin girls!
You will be able to catch up on eating well and taking vitamins when you are feeling better.
I ate horribly my first trimester and the scan showed my baby is healthy
just a question girls, who have you told that you're pregnant?
both sides of mine and DP's families are very big mouthed so we've told most of our immediate family. Some of my pregnant/already mum friends know, and some of DP's close friends know.
have you's told everyone? I'm thinking of announcing on FB when I go to my 12 week scan (ill be 13 weeks) so I think it will be safe!
Hi girls, I hope you don't mind if I join your group. I am 7w +5d and should be due around the 3-4th October, yay!
It is our first and I have my scan this Friday so everything is going to plan
I have been wearing a pair of jeans that have been worn a few times so they have stretched a bit, tried on a freshly washed pair and they don't fit! No way I can get them done up. I can't believe you can change shape so quickly - I have only gained 2kg so that can't be the reason? Will have to dig out some of my "fat jeans" to get me through the next few weeks
I didn't wait until my scans either as I had them a bit after 12 weeks & couldn't wait to tell
Everything was fine both times but understand why some wait until after the all clear at the scan.
As lame as it sounds, telling on facebook is really fun!! This is what I posted to facebook:
congratulations on your pregnancy and I hope everything's great on your first scan, how have you been feeling so far?
