Yep I had a freeze all which prevented the worst of it, thankfully! It was still a long wait to have FET, but looking back the freeze all was the best way to go.
I've found pregnancy ok so far, I've had the usual tiredness and sore boobs, and some nausea but nothing too bad thankfully! How about you? Have you had your 12 week scan yet?
Hi ladies, I'm 11 weeks + 1 today. I'm averaging attendance of one day a week at work at the mo thanks to morning sickness 😔 I've been really struggling but each passing day brings me a step closer the magic second trimester when I'm hoping it'll all get better. My little bump started suddenly last week & I had to go out & buy maternity jeans as even my leggings are uncomfy.
Hi Kitkat! Sorry to hear you've been so unwell. I seem to be ok so far, I've been nauseous but not actually sick yet. But then I'm only 8 weeks so it may get worse yet! I've sneakily ordered some maternity jeans so that I have them ready as soon as my current jeans won't fit. I reckon within a couple of weeks I'll wake up one day and not be able to do them up, so I wanted to be prepared for it haha! I work from home so am currently sat in my trackie bottoms, so glad I'm not in the office so I can slob around as much as I need to
Oh no Kitkat. With my first I had morning sickness really bad so I feel your pain.
I'm going to have to go maternity clothes shopping very soon. My work trousers won't do up. I thought I could go up a size bigger, the next size is perfect in the waist but the legs are like parachute pants.
I've had it pretty much since implantation, it was one of the reasons I knew it had worked & tested at 5dp5dt. It's steadily got worse over the weeks. I've just found out there's chickenpox going around at work so don't know if I should go in & risk that even if I do feel well enough tomorrow?
Ssltw I'm super jealous of working in trackies at home!
Bumpylady, I did exactly the same with leggings I bought - the next size up are baggy round the legs so not exactly leggings!! Need to order maternity leggings asap apparently they're even more comfy than maternity jeans. You should have seen my face when I tried the jeans on, couldn't wipe the smile off my face. Such a relief to finally find something other than a onesie that's comfy.
I stayed off work & contacted my midwife, she requested blood test to check my immunity & they can back showing I am immune to chickenpox so I can go back to work when I'm well enough. Also good to know for future that I don't have to worry when others have chickenpox, I can remember my dad having it as an adult & it was awful. I hope your cold is easing Bumpy, I'm so thankful I haven't had one yet - I suffer so badly when I get a cold & totally contract man flu so I'm dreading not being able to rely on lemsip! xxx
Hi ladies I think the old timers from bh don't come on here much these days think we are all busy with the babies!! I do keep an eye on bh so saw all you bfps congratulations xxx
It really does fly by, before you know it you'll have a little person saying yes or no enjoy ladies! 😀
For those old bh that were my font of knowledge hello hope all is well with your families, Jane, loopy, pie pig, tam, honeybee. Part of me wants to go again but dont think it will happen my baby is not a baby now! Crazy how u r so grateful for 1 when it could have been so different yet your still effected by infertility that u dint get to just plan another no issues. To be left in the hands of fate
Awww how exciting! Our scan at the hospital isn't until I'm 14 weeks & I can't wait that long so we have booked a private scan for this coming Saturday when I'll be 12 + 6, I'm ticking the days off! We've decided not to have the downs tests xxx
I wish I had never agreed to it now and may just leave the blood test. It's not compulsory and I don't want to stress over something that won't change my mind.
We see our baby moving and to me that was enough.
My 12 week scan was at 13 weeks so I know how the waiting drives you mad. Now baby looks like w baby and not a blob we are booking a 16 week private scan and hoping to get a quick view in HD.
I can't wait to hear about your scan, very exciting
We realised we wouldn't risk an amniocentesis so the nuchal test could just provide unnecessary worry. My midwife was a bit surprised when I said we didn't want the test when I was at my booking appointment.
Typically I have spoken too soon & the sickness is back with a vengeance again this morning! xxx
Nics... I know what you mean, DS is such a special gift... What I would do to give him a brother or sister!! I had the FET which failed, I'm now down regging on a fresh cycle which omg is expensive!! If this doesn't work (which I prey will) will have to be the last attempt.. Do you think you will ever be able to go again? It's the horrible part of parting with thousands with no guarantee... For those that pop them out for free it feels so unfair!
All in all we are seriously all so so lucky to have our precious babies and those of you with bumps.. Enjoy every amazing second 😄😄😄😄😄😄😄 I love seeing all the happy stories!!
Hi hopefully soon.. Hope you are ok and getting on well??
