    Well ladies I've noticed quite an influx in members (including myself) who are either pregnant or trying to concieve (TTC for short)

    As UKBaby isn't set up yet I thought this thread might be a good idea. For us to support one another and also to keep everything in one place where we can share tips and ask advice without trawling the whole site looking for the threads we need.

    As this is non wedding related I'd advise all to bookmark and spread the word to other members as "rules is rules" and this non-wedding related thread will be sunk after 12hr just like the rest.

    You don't have to be pregnant/a mummy to post here, don't want anyone feeling left out especially if they think they have useful advice to pass along.

    I think this is brilliant idea! Esp for people like me (first time mums to be) I was actually looking earlier for other threads about early preganices etc etc

    I think there's a lot of threads here and there but it's definitely nice having things all together in one little bundle (no pun intended though it was a good one lol)

    Thanks Modmummy :) xxx I'll flitter between here and the other forum I've joined and see how it goes on both....ok so i'll give you a tiny bit of info on where me and hubby are at :
    We got married November 2011.. are coming off OC in about 2 weeks, we will see what happens until next year when I'm 30 - if we aren't expecting by then we will go down the medical road and see what the doctors can do for us... it's all very exciting - hubby has been looking at baby things and getting a bit broody too now so it's not just me getting excited !!!!

    good luck to any of the other ladies on here TTC or that are pregnant xx

    Awww good luck Zoe Kay! Hope it all goes they way you want it to :)
    For me, (for those who've not seen my post) I'm getting married 30th June, found out I was expecting yesterday and got my first appointment with the midewife on Friday who says I'm about 5 weeks and my est due date (which of course will change at the date scan) is 18th Feb! We've been very lucky, after just 2 months of coming off the pill and doing a lot of the babymaking dance it happened! Timing couldn't be more perfect! We are planning of telling close family this weekend, and I think we will keep things between us until 12 weeks before telling everyone else :) still doesn't feel real!

    Good luck to everyone :) xxxx

    Mothers are always welcome for giving advice, bet you're full of handy tips (here's one from me: No matter what age the child never leave home without a pack of wet wipes!)

    I'm onto my 3rd pregnancy now, half way through YIPEE!

    I waited til I was 16 weeks. I just enjoyed having my own special little secret with a few select people who knew. I think as well that 1st Trimester can drag on a fair bit so having a secret passes the time a bit too lol

    Well I think we've now decided to keep it close, I've just told my best friend as I just had to tell someone and she said to wait until 12 weeks, so I think after telling family this weekend that will be it for now. But I've given her strict orders not to tell any one ^_^ made it all feel more real actually telling someone close and having someone to lean on for now other than H2B weeeeeeeeeeeeee

    Oh gosh, H2B keeps messing with me saying about twins, however we don't have twins in our families I'll be happy with just one healthy little one :) I started taking folic acid as soon as I came off the pill. Ahh I'm so glad I can come on here and talk to you all :)

    It was funny on our first scan. Bean was hiding in a corner and refused to move into the right position. Had to jump up and down, go have lunch - nothing worked. The man doing the scan made me laugh and the baby did a somersault and was in the right position. We were there nearly 3 hours. Hoping bean will be less stubborn this time

    lol aw i think if u have 2 then 3 4 or whatever doesnt make a difference! we have all already learnt how to multitask and share by that point! lol i had 2 from a previous relationship and the younger 2 i have with my h2b, and they are both girls, so i feel a bit compelled to have another to give him a boy too, even though he doesnt mind, he treats them all as his own, i just cant help but feel broody lol although the birth of number 4 was very good at putting me off anymore and still does! lol oh yes steph, the dizzy spells too! i remember those, they soon go and then resurface when ur 7-8 months and carrying some weight! lol
