Babies Due April-June 2020

[name_m]Just[/name_m] got a BFP this morning which is a wonderful surprise, didn’t expect it to happen so soon. Anyway, seeing as the fates are on our side I’ve created this thread in the hopes that I’ll have the company of other expectant mamas (even if online) on this final pregnancy. Here’s to beautiful and healthy spring babies!

[name_m]Ah[/name_m], nearly forgot, my [name_m]EDD[/name_m] is [name_f]April[/name_f] 6th, 2020.

Due dates list:

@lovelace: April 6th
@scillyellie: April 7th
@eireann: April 15th
@bexbox: April 17th
@coccinella: May 1st
@barelyhailey: May 5th

@lovelace congratulations!! how have you been feeling?

I got my BFP about 2 weeks ago and I am guessing my due date is around [name_u]March[/name_u] 31st, but not 100% sure. Since I am right on the edge I will probably hang out around both the [name_u]Jan[/name_u]-[name_u]March[/name_u] and this thread!! My first was induced a week and a half past my due date so I am guessing even if my due date is in [name_u]March[/name_u], this one will likely come in [name_f]April[/name_f] anyway!!

I have had some very mild nausea, but have been SOO hungry! I feel like I need to eat every hour!

I can’t wait to see more people join this thread!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] Ladies!

I’m really nervous as it’s sooo early, but trying to think positive! Got my BFP Thursday - I only tested as I was 14 days [name_u]PO[/name_u] - have had mild cramping since 8 days [name_u]PO[/name_u] (so didn’t think it was my month) but hoping it’s just uterus stretching not anything else, other than that just feeling more tired than usual! Very excited to be in this forum with you guys and hope we all have sticky healthy babies!

Provisional due date of 7th [name_f]April[/name_f] :slight_smile:

Hey. I can’t believe I am joining this, but here I am! I took a cheap e[name_u]Bay[/name_u] test this morning, a pink dye one, and had a faint-ish dodgy looking line. Assumed it was a fluke but then I took a ClearBlue this evening and I’m pregnant. It says 1-2 weeks but going off my last period, the NHS due date calculator puts me at 3-4 weeks. It’s still very early days but I am only 22 (23 in 2 months though), single and very nervous so I’m just coming here for help if that’s OK. Good luck everyone. :slight_smile: My EDD is April 15th and off to the doctors next week to confirm as I still don’t believe it! It wasn’t at all planned, if anything it is pure luck because I was super careful, but it is what it is.

Hello again! [name_f]Welcome[/name_f] to the due date group :slight_smile: 2 weeks and 5 days until my booking appointment, not that I’m counting down or anything (haha)!

@lovelace - shall we, like in some of the other DD chats, keep a track of who is expecting when in the opening post?

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] everyone’s doing well, I’m definitely finding it harder second time round!

Hey, ladies, oof! Life’s been crazy the past weeks with the end of summer and new school year! I haven’t been feeling much in terms of symptoms yet, but have a first appointment [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f].

@eireann, congratulations! I know it was unexpected, but you’ll see what a blessing a baby is, and though motherhood is never easy it’s amazing and things eventually fall into place.

@scillyellie, I’ll definitely edit the original post with our due dates list!

@lovelace: Thank you! The only symptoms I have are a funny like blood taste in my mouth but it seems to wear off throughout the day (think they call it metallic?), although mints help, and bloat. A LOT of bloat! I get cramps on and off but they aren’t painful or even uncomfortable. My boobs are sensitive as well. It’s just like the usual before-a-period symptoms, if I didn’t get positive pregnancy tests then I’d just assume my period was around the corner!

Hoping to get my confirmation appointment booked in this week but my work schedule isn’t ever on my side! I was on/off smoking and vaping but I’ve cut all that out, and I’m off to buy folic acid this week. I sort of want to buy more pregnancy tests just to make sure, lol!

[name_f]Easter[/name_f] next year is around my EDD so an [name_f]Easter[/name_f] baby is exciting!

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] we get more joining us soon. :slight_smile:

ETA: Had my doctor’s appointment today, they confirmed the pregnancy and I am to start seeing a midwife when I’m 8 weeks, so around mid September. Excited! Although I am panicking wondering if this is all too good to be true.

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] Ladies,
I hope you and your little beans are all well? I’m definitely feeling rougher with this pregnancy than I did with my son, but I guess it means my hormone levels should be good! [name_m]How[/name_m] was your appointment @lovelace? [name_f]Hope[/name_f] everything went well? I wander who’ll be next to join us in this thread?

All is good, I hope. No midwife appointment yet, my first one is [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f] when I’m around 8 weeks. Going off LMP, I’m 7w1d and the anxious wait to the 12 week point to see if everything is OK is stressing me out! [name_f]Morning[/name_f] sickness kicked in [name_f]Monday[/name_f] and for [name_f]Monday[/name_f] and [name_f]Tuesday[/name_f] everything I ate and drank came back up. Yesterday was better, I was nauseous but managed to keep food and drink down and today seems good too. Not sure what happened for those 2 days! But I’ve been having water with lemon slices in and taking vitamin B complex and I think that plays a part in keeping stuff down.

I am also waiting for others to join us, I’m in a due date group on FB and there are a lot of twins due in [name_f]April[/name_f], hoping I’m not one of them! Lol. I couldn’t cope with 2!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m], so quiet here! [name_f]Hope[/name_f] you are all doing well?
I have my dating scan in 17 days - I will be 11+6 - can’t wait!
That’s interesting there are lots of twins due, but like you I hope I’m not carrying twins - I don’t know how I’d cope!
[name_f]Hope[/name_f] more join us here soon and things pick up a bit!

All is well here, how’ve you been? I’m hoping this thread gets busier soon, surely there must be more of us! I had my first midwife appointment and my dating scan is booked for [name_f]October[/name_f] 3rd, when I’ll be exactly 12 weeks and one week before my birthday! Nausea is still making me miserable, I can’t wait for it to leave me completely because I feel like I have to be careful what I eat, certain foods are nasty coming back up lol.

hello everyone!!

i’m new here, but i thought i’d join in on this. bf and i just found out we were expecting about a week ago (my birthday is soon; an early birthday gift i’d say). my [name_m]EDD[/name_m] is 1 may 2020.

hope you’re all doing great! ”

6 weeks here due [name_f]May[/name_f] 5th with #2

See the ob on [name_f]October[/name_f] 16th

@coccinella and @barelyhailey, congratulations and welcome! :slight_smile:

I’m 9 weeks and 4 days now, and round ligament pain has been cruel to me today. I panicked until I found out it is pretty normal, it felt like stabbing pains in the right side of my uterus and lasted for a solid 15 minutes, all because I rolled over in bed…

Has anyone been thinking of names to give to an actual human rather than hypothetical yet? I have vetoed so many names I had because the idea of giving them to an actual living human being rather than a figment of my imagination put me off them. [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] nn [name_f]Emmy[/name_f] and [name_m]Reuben[/name_m] are the only 2 I could actually picture on my baby. The dad doesn’t really have an interest in discussing names until we know the gender, but that’s sooo far away! And I’ll be damned if I can’t use those names lol.

My 2 year old said to me the other day when I asked if he was going to have a brother or sister said and I quote “they are both brothers”… now I’m freaking out

Hey all, congrats to the newcomers. I am almost 13 weeks now and have had 2 ultrasounds. My due date has been confirmed as [name_u]March[/name_u] 29 and because I had a c-section with my almost 1 year old and they will only be 18 months apart, I will have to have a scheduled c-section with #2 at 38-39 weeks so this one will definitely be a [name_u]March[/name_u] baby. I think I am going to stick to the [name_u]Jan[/name_u]-[name_u]March[/name_u] group now.

Good luck to everyone. Wishing you all happy and healthy pregnancies!

[name_f]Welcome[/name_f] @coccinella and @barelyhailey !

Nice to have more people to join this thread :slight_smile:

I am 11+3 and looking forward to my dating scan next week.

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] everyone is well x

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] everyone,

I’m 10+1 due 17 [name_f]April[/name_f] with #2. Definitely sicker this time, but scans show bebe is kicking around like mad with a strong little heartbeat :smiley:

98% expecting another girl and will know for sure in a couple of weeks. I will fall off my chair if they say boy :stuck_out_tongue:

Joining the thread, as I just got a positive a few days ago. This will be baby no. 3 for us!

Hello again and welcome @bexbox and @zibby! I hope everyone’s doing great!

I’m 8w+5 now and actually feeling quite great, at least compared to what I expected lmao. [name_u]Baby[/name_u]’s also doing quite well!
