9th July!!! Wooohooo!! was waiting for this thread to be started!!
I'm 6.5 weekd with Baby no.1 and I am beyond excited!!
March, I get back pain and cramps(well they eased off this week) kinda similar to period cramps but my doctor said it's totally normal as your uterus is stretching-especially on your first!

I was getting cramps for the first few weeks. Grand now. No symptoms apart from tender breasts.
Had first dr appointment this morning, she took bloods and blood pressure etc.
How am I going to keep this a secret until after Christmas!!!???

My doc was off yesterday so I attended a locum, she didn't even do a pregnancy test, just took me at my word that I had got a positive test!! So I asked for my blood to be done to test progesterone levels! I am just starting to get slight waves of nausea yesterday and today - would it be possible this early - only 4 weeks and few days gone?!!

I know it's so hard to try and keep this a secret over Crimbo!!!!!!! How will we do it??!?!!!

All my family are meeting up next weekend and we always have a few bottles of plonk - so I am trying to think up of a believable excuse for next weekend as to why I am not drinking!!!!!

My doc didn't do a test either!
I think morning sickness can start between 4-6 weeks.

I think saying that your driving or on anti biotics is the best bet.
That's what I'm doing tonight - heading to the cinema after work and supposed to be heading out afterwards, just just told the girls I'm on anti biotics.

The antibiotics is a good idea Silly, but I know my gang, they would start asking what for and what type of antibiotics!!!! Enjoy the flick anyway and get plenty of popcorn and choc!!!


OMG Cyning have you been that sick so early that you had to be put on a drip?!!

Guys this is some rollercoaster and it's only the beginning!!!

A tip for the antibiotics story, as most people dont usually believe that one now, is to say you are on Flagyl antibiotics, cos you absolutely cannot drink alcohol on those, or you will be violently ill. You even have to wait 48hrs after the course is finished to drink.
Dentists usually prescribe them for abscesses.

Have fun, and congrats.
