some exciting news

November 16th, 2011 at 02:57 am

I have been waiting for what seems like ages to post about this, and technically things are still in the early stage so I wouldn't be surprised if things still don't work out.

I'm pregnant! Six and a bit weeks.
We are excited, but still wary seeing as a lot of close friends had miscarriages in a very small space of time, a couple years ago. We know that it is fairly common and so we don't want to get our hopes up (but, it's hard not to!).

We have only told DH's mum so far, and a couple of very close friends. We are waiting until Christmas time/12 weeks before we tell everyone else.

Our due date is 9th July next year.

So far I've only felt a mild amount of nausea a couple of times. I've been getting tired a lot more. I know the best of the morning sickness is just about to start Frown (if it does - here's hoping it's not too bad).

Our first ultrasound is a week before christmas, so that will be a nice early christmas present for us!

    Oh my gosh! Congratulations to you and your husband. It is scary in the early stages, but as I told myself and my spouse when each of us found out, to help with our nerves, at least now you know you can conceive, which is huge! Here's hoping for a healthy pregnancy and delivery for you. Smile

    Congrats!!! What exciting news!

    Btw, you are not doomed to morning sickness - it does not happen in all pregnancies. I did not have morning sickness or nausea at all.

    Awe thanks for sharing and CONGRATULATIONS!

  19. whitestripe Says:

    nika, that is what I have been hoping! I have felt some nausea but no vomitting, and it usually passes after an hour or two. Just dont want to count my chickens before they hatch - only 7 weeks and have read it can usually start from 6-8 weeks. keep your fingers crossed for me! Big Grin
