My first pregnancy

Hi all, I know that every women that is TTC is wondering what pregnancy symptoms everyone has had. Here is my story: I had very irregular periods, but somehow managed without even trying, to conceive 16 days after my period. I had no idea. My only clue was that I had sore breasts and no period. I tested about two weeks after I would have my period and got a BFP. After that I really had no other symptoms until later. About the 2nd - 3rd trimester I started getting heartburn and backache. But that's all, for me. I am TTC right now so we will see what happens this time!!


2nd Pregnancy after 1 Miscarriage

Hi all

Me and my husband got married on back in September and exactly 1 month afterwards, discovered we were pregnant! This was great news as we had started trying immediately after the wedding as I am now 35 years old.

This was also great news that we "fell" so quickly as last year, we lost our 1st pregnancy at 12 weeks - but they told me it would have died around 6 weeks. I had a natural miscarriage and was thankful I didn't have to have a D&C. We then decided to get married first before trying again, so it was a 1 1/2 years between pregnancies.

So we are now pregnant again, and we are at almost 7 weeks and I am really, really worried. I am so worried that the same thing will happen again, as I didn't have any bleeding or anything to indicate that the baby had died. The only symtoms I seem to have a sore boobs (but not all the time and one is sorer than the other!), slight tiredness and sometimes I feel emotional. But thats it! I sometimes feel a bit sick, but nothing noticeable! We have an early viability scan in 2 weeks time and I am both excited but dreading it!

Good luck to you all out there, and it would be reassuring to hear if anyone else out there is experiencing the same lack of symptoms as me!

Take care x


Don't give up

Hi,thank you for the web site. Would like to tell all ladies who are trying to get a baby not to give up. I've tried for about two years and now am in my third month of pregnancy. Thanks be to God.



this is my second pregnancy. i had a missed missed miscarriage in july. I found out at 12 weeks that my baby had died a t 8 weeks and I hadn't even realised. No bleeding and no pain. i had a dnc and as I said I'm now supposedly ten weeks pregnant. i say supposedly because really I have no way of knowing if things are OK. I have practically no symptoms either just like the first time. Had a scan at 51/2 weeks and things looked ok then and I have to wit another week for the decisive scan. Although I'd love to be a mum I think inanother life I'd choose to be a man. the waiting sucks.


Just found out

It has been 3 hours since my first pregnancy test. I took 3 more since then (different brands) and all, right away, said I was pregnant. I am in shock...I cannot describe it. My boyfriend and I have been together for 3 years. He has a 9 year old son from a previous relationship. Lately we had decided to go our separate ways, and were planning to get our own places. We've been getting along very well, better than ever. Now, I find out I am pregnant. I told him, but it was right before he was heading to his second job. HE was in shock too and has called me from work to say he was sorry he went to work. I just don't know what to think. I called my mom and told her but swore her to secrecy because I know a woman who just miscarried and I don't want to reveal I am pregnant too soon. As morose as I may sound, I am quite happy that I am able to get pregnant! I didn't think I would be. So it's a multitude of feelings I am experiencing...shock, awe, fear, guilt, sadness, happiness, relief, dismay. Up until today I thought I would get my own place, finish school (I graduate from college this Spring) and then perhaps teach abroad. Obviously God has a different plan?!
