    I'm full time too, but my boss and workmates already know that I'm pregnant because I was open about going through IVF (needing time off for tests and procedures is a bit obvious). It was more important to me to know that I have supportive people around me if anything were to happen, rather than wait until it's "safe".

    We are waiting to tell extended family and friends, but it's hard to keep such exciting news!

    told 1 of the close nurses i work with as she gave me a baby rug for my birthday and is always excited to hear me babble about baby things. Besides telling mum as wont be drinking at family thing i wanted her to know in case anything bad happened and DH at work. Mum never had sisters and wasnt able to talk about baby stuff with her mum but we are really close.

    Congrats on all your bfps! Wishing you all sticky, easy going pregnancies This will be my second bub, have an almost 2 & 1/2 year old daughter keeping me busy already! Due the 4th. I've had my bloods done and booked in with the midwife group practice at rnsh - an awesome program if you can't go private.

    Nausea is horrid, I need to toughen up but it's not easy blurgh!
    Hi JessyJ!!!

    I agree with pp about the nausea thing - dry crackers used to work okay. I found that there was two types of nausea though - the type where eating some dry crackers helped and the other type where you didn't want to eat anything as it made it worse! I used to keep a packet in the draw at work. For staff meetings you could take crackers and cheese on a platter "to share" and it wouldn't be as obvious. Just watch the salt intake.

    Great to hear some of you are enjoying sharing your great news either with family, friends or workmates. So far only two other people know, but want to tell our close friends when we see them next, but the kids have been sick which has post-phoned that!

    Had the second lot of bloods this morning so will hopefully get them back in the next few days.

    Trying to get stuck into an assignment that is due Monday week. Hoping it is just going to "flow" as I'm so exhausted I'm not able to do the hours at night that I usually do.

    Thanks Little ted! This nausea is so different from the last time. A dry cracker or two would help but this time I need it but it makes it worse too. Had my first chuck this morning (sorry, gross!!) and I am so worried about being able to manage it at work - I'm a kindy teacher. Got a staff meeting tonight and am considering telling them all even though its early just to make it easier on myself.

    Wobbler, sorry about your knee and I hope you don't struggle too much at work with your ms. It's not fun hey?!

    Good idea, 'll get some crackers for work. I always have a food stash so that won't look as suss. The last two pregnancies I was hospitalised from all the sickness so fingers crossed it doesn't happen this time.

    wobblermummy - so your a nurse? I work in an office and couldn't imagine a 10 hour shift on my feet! Fingers crossed your energy comes back soon and your knee is okay.

    little ted - how come you had a second lot of bloods? I've had one lot of bloods but don't go back to the doctors till the end of the month. It's funny actually usually when you go to the doctors and tell them u've had a positive preg test, they usually test your urine. mine just said congratulations and sent me off to get bloods and booked another appointment for 4 weeks later. They must just believe me being my third time! So I really do have no confirmation, just vomiting and sore boobs. And my tummy is so bloated!

    I already know i'll have to have a c-section because the other 2 were. Just makes me sad sometimes knowing I have two children and I've never been in labour or had a contraction! I guess at least I should be thankfull i have two healthy girls

    Nice digi wobbler!

    I was going to grab one when I was at the chemist yesterday getting my clexane script filled, but I chickened out as I didn't want to feel silly if they started asking me questions!

    I think I'll just have to be patient and wait until Thursdays BT to see what my HCG is like then.

    As for nausea, I'm having it on and off at the moment but nothing too bad so far - mostly just making me not feel up to eating much. I'm finding carbs are easier to keep down, but I'm totally crushing on mushrooms, garlic and pumpkin in the food department at the moment

    makes for a long.night. i was permamently on nights till 2 wks ago till my boss chose to screw me around now i am.2 wks nights 2 wks days and arvos all over the place this baby isnt going to get much sleep now like me. Got my referral for dating scan gp wasnt going to give me one as said you dont need one till 10 wks but said no i want to see a heartbeat in 2 wks lol. Have a stack of bloods but no hcg levels which i asked about he laughed and said if you can get 8positive hpts that are getting darker you are pg. Have to go back and see them in a month and call and book in with specialist. He did decide to stop my motillium atm till hear back from ob :-( well guess i'll be vomiting alot now as i use it for gastroparesis my stomach wont digest anything or push things further out of my stomach so when i eat on a dull tummy or drink i'll be sick as my tummy is too stupid to know what to do now.

    I think in your position you are right. Particularly if a child comes in with a non pregnancy-friendly sickness, lifting, chemicals, etc. And with being crook - it would mean people would be prepared for you to be able to make a dash to the loo if needed!

    This is our sixth pregnancy and before this one had never had an early blood test or urine test at the doctors. My dr always just believed me when I told her I poas and it was +ve.

    My fertility clinic organised the first bloods as it is their system of things in order to then book me in for a scan. It's one of the best ones in town so I'm happy to go back, but unfortunately he no longer delivers so I have to change over. My doctor has arranged the quantitative test for these last few days to see if my body is doing what it should before I have the scan next week.

    I'm feeling super duper tired, but not sick enough!

    Hi Ladies! How is everyone?
    Wobbler: lovely digital! And sounds like you had a good appt with your doctor! Glad he gave you the dating scan referral! Sorry about your knee too! Hope it feels better soon!
    Little Ted: I'm hearing you on the tired! I could seriously nap at my desk!
    Arlais: Bummer about the nausea but glad carbs seem to settle it!
    JessyJ: I almost had my first chuck at work today, I'm worried too about how to manage it there!
    Alirasmummy: I second the crackers, I find munching on Clix biccies at the moment is good

    Sorry to anyone I've missed! Hope you are all doing well! I'm so tired and I think baby brain has kicked in already! I've been so vague and saying the wrong things today!

    AFM besides the baby brain, the nausea continues but it's not too bad. I work full time too and man am I tired!! Could seriously nap after lunch every day! Trying not to act different or make people suss though as we won't be telling anyone till 12W. Got my first appt with the Dr tomorrow so looking forward to that. We will be going private and I have no idea if I need a referral for the OB or what else I need to do lol.
    Does anyone else find being pregnant is all thought consuming at the moment? It's all I think about pretty much all the time lol!
    Also funny about the animals acting differently, my dogs haven't that I've noticed, but my DH (who has such an incredible sense of smell I'm convinced he is part dog) says I smell different
