Thank you! I'm glad you feel better. I used to remember one important fact that made me feel better, you're more likely to carry a baby to term than miscarry once you have missed your period.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your pregnancy :) take care x

I would book an appointment with your doctor so they can put you in contact with your midwife, I went at 5 weeks and they were great!

I told my mum and sister quite soon after finding out and then my closest friend, mother in law and sitter and brother in law after the 7 week scan as it was only fair and we wanted support if anything were to go wrong. We didn't tell anyone else until after the dating scan when I was 13+3. But it all depends on how you feel. We were to going to tell a couple more friends but when it came to it I really didnt want to.

We haven't chosen a name yet, think we will have a few and then decide.

It'll be nice to go through your pregnancy with your sister in law, you'll realise all you concerns are how everyone feels. X

She already has 1 child with a previous relationship. But she has told eveyone and also my husbands parents so feeling like i want to announce it but think its just safe to hang on untill the first scan just to be safe.

I actually had one at 7 weeks as I had pink spotting then I had the regular one we call the 12 week one but mine was at just over 13 weeks. I saw my midwife for booking in at 8 and half weeks but they can come between 8-11 weeks. Then my next scan was at 20+2 and she looks lovely and healthy :)

Thank you! We're so happy to be having a girl.

I guess it will seem like a long time away but before you know it youll be there for a scan. We found all the staff t be really nice. Cheltenham is meant to be a great place to give birth, aromatherapy oils and everything! X

To be fair to my dog, he didn't pull me over, it was my own fault when ballet pumps and slipped on the slush!

Don't be sorry, I know what you mean about things feeling a bit different which makes you in turn feel better.

We found out 2 weeks ago we're having a girl, I had a feeling all along it was. What's your nearest hospital? Mine is Cheltenham, so barring any complications I'll be going there, if not it'll be Gloucester.

Feel free to message me if you want to ask any questions etc, things are a bit different for us in the UK. X

omg really lol i bought a halti lead a few months back because of exactly that, think ill get the hubby to walk him when its winter (the least he can do :)

Its nice to speak to someone about these things. Im feeling much more positive about this pregnancy even tho it is still early days but things feel better this time. last time when i tested i hardly got a faint positive and that was 1 week late, this time round got a definate positive line 15dpo and no sharp pains or cramps this time so fingers crossed!

sorry for blabbing on! do you know if your having a boy or girl or are you keeping it a surprise?! :) x
