Oh, and we’ve already told our moms. I think we’ll wait to tell anyone else until after that first appointment (and then it will only be my BFF and my sister and DH’s brothers). We won’t tell anyone else until after the 12 week mark

Due Date: July 31 – August 2
Cycles Trying: This is our first — stopped BCP right after our wedding.
Any Symptoms yet? Intermittent cramping, tired, sore BB’s, and moments of mild nausea.
Most excited for: I’m just beyond thrilled that I’ll be a mama!! I’ve wanted this my whole life. And, of course, holding that little baby for the first time!
What you’ll miss most while pregnant: red wine and hoppy IPA’s 🙂
Hoping for boy or girl? Of course we just want a healthy, happy little one — but if I’m honest with myself, I’d love to have a little girl first (would love to have one of each eventually). DH keeps teasing me about twins. Um … hopefully not, at least until we figure out what we’re doing, lol!
Here’s to a healthy, happy nine months to all!!!

@Glasgowbound: We told our moms, too. We really just couldn’t hold back. Then we told our siblings. But everyone’s sworn to secrecy until the 12-week mark, when we’ll tell the world!

Due Date: August 2nd
Cycles Trying: 4 including a m/c last cycle
Any Symptoms yet? exhausted, tender boobs/nipples, always hungry, headaches, mild cramps.
Most excited for: ** hopefully ** seeing the heartbeat at 6 or 7 weeks and seeing my baby grow as it should. also excited for labouring naturally after my section 5 years ago.
What you’ll miss most while pregnant going on rollercoasters, me and DH are theme park fanatics and are planning a trip with DS in April to 5 theme parks, i will sadly have to hold the bags and watch them go on them but i dont care as long as there is a baby at the end of it all =]
Hoping for boy or girl? Any, a boy would be easier but i would love a girl too. Just praying for a healthy baby for now and staying team green!!

Also congratulations and happy and healthy 9 months to everybody. I am super scared of this pregnancy but being on the bee helps a lot as everybody is so lovely and supportive. I already told my sister because she is my boss at work and i have to do heavy lifting which id rather not and my BFF knows i told her before DH lol. I dont want to wait until 12 weeks to tell my mum and dad so i am asking for an early scan around the middle of december to check for a heartbeat and if its there FX then i can tell my parents but DH wants me to wait until 12 weeks to tell his family which is fine =]

@bouncybee: Hey… I wanted to tell you that I went to the doctors yesterday just because I was feeling a little light headed (which is normal in pregnancy)… anyways, they did check my HCG levels which was 926 🙂 The doctor mentioned that the reason why they do not like giving scans early is because some times, when you do the scan to early, you may not see anything or you may not hear a heart beat, etc…. and this obviously cause the new mom to stress (even though it could be totally normal)…. I was completely fine with that because that happened to me with my first pregnancy… Just wanted to warn you that if you do get your scan early, keep that in mind… I don’t want you stressing out right before the holidays…..
Keep us posted and good luck to you again!!!

Due Date: August 2-5
Cycles Trying: Oh God… I’ve lost count. It’s been 3.5 years
Any Symptoms yet? Cramping, nausea, some sharper pains that could be the starts of ligament pains, sore tatas, gassy, and dizzy. lol
Most excited for: Going home from the hospital with baby!
What you’ll miss most while pregnant: I honestly can’t think of a thing. I’ve been wanting this for so long. I’m just hoping that this pregnancy carries to term and ends in a rainbow baby for me! This is my 7th pregnancy and we are still trying for #1…
Hoping for boy or girl? I have a feeling it might be a girl, but honestly I couldn’t care less as long as it’s a healthy bean that I get to cuddle, love, teach, and watch grow!!

@trulyblessed: Thankyou for that info thats great to know just in case! I will be 6 weeks when i get the early scan so i should be able to see the sac and yolk at least. great news about your HCG levels!! How many weeks and days are you? In my last pregnancy which ended at 4+5 my levels were 60 at 4+2 i knew it wouldnt go well!! Maybe youre having twins 😉 xx
