Hey Ladies smile
Hope everyone is doing well - and I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling a little bit crampy and weird "down there".
With DD I didn't find out I was pregnant until i was 7wks (even though we'd been trying for 19mths), and I don't remember feeling this at all. The first symptom I remember is MS lol.
I've been taking Blackmores Pregnancy & BF as well, they seem fine. I've been taking them for months now and even though they are huge tablets they seem to work well. The main thing I'm worried about is getting enough folate this early on, but anything else of course is a big bonus. I've noticed they have already started to give me some heartburn/reflux, but if I have something to eat I'm generally ok.
QueenB - so glad the bleeding stopped for you hun, they say it's very common for women to have spotting and cramping around when AF is due, but it's nothing to worry about unless you have red blood. It can also happen when you implant as well.
Danielle - I think you should be fine with fake tan, as long as you are in a well ventilated room and not inhaling too much of the fumes (where possible). I asked the question about hair dye when I was pregnant with my DD (as my hair is dyed VERY light blonde) and I was told it was fine by my Dr. I'm going to get my hair done on Saturday, and I usually have to have it done every 4-5 weeks. I think you should be fine hun smile
AFM - I saw my GP today to arrange all of my bits and pieces moving forward. She saw my HPT at 12DPO and said she was really pleased with how dark it was and said I don't even need to wait until Monday (I was going to wait as AF isn't due until tomorrow/Saturday for me), and she said it would be fine to go today. So I had my B-HCG Quantitative test done, and I'll get my results tomorrow after lunch. I'm so excited to see what they are (and nervous at the same time). She has requested progressive bloods to be done weekly for the next 3 weeks (because of my early m/c last time), and I have a referral for an early scan at 6wks! I can't wait to see my little jellybean, I am going to be a nervous wreck, but once I see everything is ok, I know I'll calm down a bit.
I've also made arrangements to go back to see my FS (who is also my OB as well) at 10wks. I can't believe how quickly this all happens in the first trimester. It's good though because it makes time go faster, and we can get through this scary bit sooner!!
I wonder if any of us will be pregnant with twins?? hehe...I always wonder that, because I've been taking Clomid, and that increases your chances a little bit. I'd be happy to have twins, I don't mind either way! But if I was preg with twins I think that'd be my family completed smile
What symptoms are the most noticable ones you girls are feeling so far?
I had some heartburn the other day and some light nausea, but mostly I just feel tired and my nipples are REALLY sensitive and sore. Today I've been feeling a bit crampy as well, but nothing I'm concerned about.
In a way I want MS to start...I think I'm crazy, but I find it helps me to feel like things are ok in a way?!
Oh - and I'm a mega coke-a-holic too, glad I'm not the only one. I'm suffering withdrawals too, because I promised myself when I got my BFP I would cut right back (I was probably drinking around a litre a day - yuck!) and now I'm only having a glass a day, or every few days if I can push it out. They say no more than 300-400mls of caffiene per day is safe.
Anyway, sorry for the long post, hope everyone is doing really well grin
