Thank you Danielle :-)
Got a bfp yesterday and today but DH is out of town until tomorrow so a little lost and lonely here haha! TTC #1 and this is month 2 of trying.
Wondering if there is anyone else out there with a new bfp :) ?
Eek what to do now?! xxxxxx

Hooray SC30, welcome and huge congratulations! So have you told DH yet?? And don't worry, we're sure there will be loads more women joining you over here really soon.

Thank you so much for yours support Danielle, super appreciate it so much!!
No I’ve not told DH yet, felt a bit strange telling him over the phone, hope that‘s not wrong of me :s ! He is back tomorrow evening :-) in my own little world at the moment with some mild cramping and back pain! xxxx

I think I could be joining this club 😊

Yeyy hello Cat! Congratulations! That’s what mine looked like and then I confirmed with FRER and CB Digital. Have you done any more tests? xxx
24/02/2018 at 14:38
No more test that’s the only one I have. Might pop to shops later 😊. Hoping that I get a positive on a digital as well. Congratulations

Hi Catj21, welcome and congratulations! Did you buy more tests??
24/02/2018 at 20:14
Hi everyone, I cant quite believe it but it looks like I’m finally joining the Mum-to-be club!
After nearly a year of trying and 6 months of dilligently following the SMEP plan I took a test on Thursday and got a positive result!! Even though we were trying it was still unexpected, so much so that we’d had a first appointment with the our GP to discuss next steps. My husband had his sperm tested this week and I had that day 21 blood test week. I want to be cautiously optimistic though because it is still very early days.
Looking forward to chatting to you all! X

Congratulations!! Such amazing news!!
How are you feeling? My middle back is sore. Not quite sure what to do next! xxxx

Hi MarieDOC, welcome and huge congratulations - we're thrilled for you!
24/02/2018 at 20:49
@SC30 thank you! I’m feeling absolutely fine. Aside from the cramps every few hours that lasts a few seconds, I’m not really feeling any different. It’s a bit worrying because I thought that I’d be feeling sick, hopefully things are progressing well. The cramps are worrying me but I keep reading that it’s very normal.
How is everyone feeling?
24/02/2018 at 21:49
Aw so good to hear from you :-) glad u r ok, oh phew i’m Totally the same! Feel weird not having any more symptoms apart from occasional cramps and back ache. I’m still a little cautious as my period isn’t due until tomorrow but ive had 5 positive tests 🙈 wondering if sickness kicks in later on? as I have a 31 day cycle (ish) I think I’m 4 weeks and 1 day if that’s even possible?! xx
24/02/2018 at 22:15
Congratulations everyone! Marie, that's so great!! I'm joining this group too, so excited!! Baby no.2 for us, due (I think) on 1st November!! x x
24/02/2018 at 22:26
It does feel weird not having symptoms. Ive clearly watched too many movies when the woman starts throwing up immediately after falling pregnant. Aside from a heightened sense of smell and the mild cramps, nothing else seems to be happening. hopefully that just means that all is working well in our tummies!
massive congrats to you too Taflo, thats so exciting that you’ve got baby 2 on the way!
24/02/2018 at 22:29
By the way, when I was working out the due date I got so confused by how the dates are calculated. So, according to my apps and google, my GP will say I’m 4 weeks pregnant based on the first day of my last period (which was the 25th of Jan), but i obviously didn’t conceive until about 2 weeks ago, so wouldn’t that make me only 2 weeks pregnant?!
Has anyone else found the due date thing a bit confusing?
Just to add that, I haven’t seen my GP yet because I only got my positive home test on thursday. hopefully he’ll make this all a lot clearer when I see him in a couple of weeks.
24/02/2018 at 22:42
Yeah it's odd but they include the 2 weeks between your last period and ovulation in your pregnancy. So by the time you ovulate you are already 'technically' two weeks pregnant! It's all worked out as if you have a 28day cycle. Confusing isn't it!
24/02/2018 at 22:48
Congrats Taflo!! Hello!
Ooh MarieDoc the first day of my period was also Jan 25th :D Yeah I super understand about the dates thing as I’m confused too! I think I’m 4 weeks and 1 day but dont know how it’s possible as 4 weeks ago we hadn’t dtd?!
I googled midwives in my area and it says I can book straight in with them if I think Im pregnant. Just need DH to come home tomorrow this is hard without him! Thanks for being there girls :-)
