Morning Ladies,

So I am 4 weeks pregnant! We did a blood test yesterday.

I am so excited and looking forward to this pregnancy. Also I feel like a million bucks!

This will be my second baby, my first little boy was born via emergency c-section on the 27th of April 2010.

DH and I have decided to keep the secret till I have seen my Gynae. Hopefully I can get an appointment for next week Friday. We are in Cape Town for father's day, and this will be another surprise for DH's father. Also we are telling my parents on the 12th as our little family are having father's day a week before because everyone will be all over for the true father's day.

So anyone want to talk or share, please do! I keep on smiling from ear to ear, and here is hoping nobody notices! By the way with the second baby they say you are bigger than with the first...I really hope not, I was tiny and would like a pregnancy like that again!

Have a great day, I am going to.

Welcome Carolsch - at the moment I am chatting on the December 2011/January 2012 thread as well as this thread is still slow.

Congrats on this baby, and I hope everything goes well for you. We wanted to wait but told my parents on Friday. We couldn't wait anymore. Going for my first scan next week Tuesday. Looking forward to it.

Any MS?

No MS at all! never had it and I am greatfull for that. And you?

I just have the normal fatigue, lower back ache and tender breasts. Other than that I feel totally normal. For now! the say MS sometimes only start later in pregnancy like 6 weeks. Ughh.

I actually found out I was pregnant before I got all my symtoms. The tender breasts was always the one I waited for and that only came 2 days after the hpt.

i was so scared I imagined the 2 lines. LOL. But the doc confirmed so here we go again :laugh:

I had bad MS with Jamie but at least nothing so far. Except for bloating, sore boobs and sore lower back. Normal as can be.

Before we did the blood test I had the bloating as well as bad back ache, so it kind of gave it away!

Morning,

Carol - what line of work are you in and what area are you in? You need to stay positive, you and baby are going to be fine and healthy.

I feel like a whale at the moment, I have taken out my maternity pants. I just can't seem to get comfortable in my other pants...at about noon I have to undo the top button because I feel squeezed! I feel a bit sorry for myself about getting big but so happy about the baba!

I am a project accountant, I work in Bryanston but live in Centurion.

Good morning!:)

I live in cape town and a stay at home mom. So even though I am busy for what feels like the whole day, my mind keeps wandering to the negative side. But a kind of feel like its going to be OK this time!

Feels like I'm going to show early. Can't pull in my stomach anymore. How far are you now? Also 5 weeks?

I am about 5 weeks, 4 days.

I take my hat off to you. I will never be able to be a stay at home mom. I wish that I could but I would drive myself insane. When I was on maternity leave I felt like I was climbing the walls!

This time around I am hoping maternity leave will be more enjoyable and I will be able to relax. I am a very busy person and as soon as I sit still for a long time my mind starts running and I am back at square one trying to figure out a problem or looking for faults within budgets, and this happens all in my head. It drives my DH insane, because he knows by now when I get a certain expression on my face I am not really there.

:laugh: LOL

Yes its tough, but you hardly have time for yourself. Like right now I am trying to rest a little (did not make time for rest yesterday and by 19h00 I was so tired I couldn't move- resulting in todays back ache) but my DS is like a energizer bunny, jumping on the bed, singing, shouting and just turning everything upside down ...SIGH...

So... I am having some terrible backache uuggh. Hope the rest helps a bit...

This time you should really take time to relax when you are on Maternity Leave!! You will be working much harder with 2 children :)

Anyhoooo hope your having a great day!

Hi Ladies

I am also on the DEC 2011/ JAN2012 thread but i found this this morning.

Took a home pregnancy test on friday. Got a BFP!!! Went for a blood test that morning and my count is over 4000. My doc is very happy and he has put on all the medication that i was on with my last pregnancy. The down side to that is, it makes me very sick. Not looking forward to the MS.

Was a complete shock. We weren't able to conceive our first child on our own (we had the help of a fertility specialist) Our little girl is 7 months old and now we are expected our second bundle of joy.

I'm still in shock. The small age gap is worrying me.

Will be going for our first scan on 15 June. Cant wait!!! My expected due date is the 2nd Feb 2012. But i'm sure this little one will come early like his/her sister. Zaylee was born exactly a week early (natural birth) We are hoping for a little boy this time round.

Welcome Ashleigh

I am due on the 3rd of February! Going to the doctor tomorrow morning for the first time. So looking forward to finding out everything is going good.

My little boy is now 13 months, so a small gap for us as well. But I am really looking forward to it. I really am hoping for a little girl this time around.

By the way ladies I think MS is kicking in with me. I can't stomach even looking at my oats this morning! And yesterday I was all shaky after Sunday lunch, just went to lie down afterwards, felt awful!

Have a great day ladies.

Hi Maureen

You must enjoy your appointment.

I cant wait for wednesday. My DH started a new job today so i'm not sure if he will be able to go with. So sad, coz with with our last pregnancy he was with me for everything.

My MS hasn't kicked in yet. but i'm sure it will. Just a bit "naar" sometimes. Just got a horrible cold. Its typical, when i am not able to drink medicine i get sick.

Welcome Cookie, you can go have the blood test done, and then have the results sent to either your GP or your Gynae, it is up to you. I would suggest if you have the money rather go to the Gynae.
