Baby Berries due April-June 2023

Okay, so it’s still super early (not even 4 weeks), but I’m optimistically starting this thread because it’s exactly the kind of positive thinking I need right now. Due date will be mid-April 2023. Can’t wait for others to join me! :kissing_heart:

Congratulations @minxtruck !!
It’s very early days for me too (only just gone 4 weeks), but got my first positive on [name_m]Saturday[/name_m] evening!!!
Very cautiously excited! :star_struck:

I was on nameberry previously as @bewitchedbirch, but hadn’t really used the account for about 2 years so decided to make a new one. And am sooooo excited for the naming journey again!!

Oh wow, I didn’t even notice your profile said you were in New Zealand! I’m in the Hawke’s Bay, whereabouts are you?

My cousin in Australia is very close to me too, I think her due date is just 12 days before mine! :star_struck: She’s a first time mum too, so I’m really excited that we get to go through this journey together. We were just swapping pregnancy podcast recommendations this morning!

Oh nice, I’m in Canterbury. So cool that we’re so close together, albeit on different islands!

Oh my gosh, that’s so awesome!! What a special thing for you two to share.
This one is your first baby then? That’s extra exciting! If you have any questions feel free to ask away, this is my third :sweat_smile:

Yep, it’ll be 1st baby for me and SO so it’s very exciting! Aww thanks, I’m sure I’ll have loads of questions. :sweat_smile:

I had my first blood test on [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f] and our fertility specialists were really happy with my results. So, it’s back again on [name_f]Tuesday[/name_f] for follow-up bloods before we get booked in for our 7-8 week heartbeat scan. :heartbeat:

How are you feeling so far? I’ve had very mild nausea and cramps from the progesterone I’m taking, so it’s hard to know whether any of those symptoms are pregnancy related. Have been noticeably more tired the last 48 hours though!!

I used to live in Canterbury too! Mumma Kiwiberries unite, haha. Down in Otago nowadays, but it’s so cool how many of us are on the forums.

A little update from me… Had my 2nd blood test on [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f] and my levels had gone up nicely (from 253 at 9dpt to 4,221 15dpt). So, just patiently waiting for our heartbeat scan on the 25th now. :heartbeat:

In the meantime, I’ve found a lovely team of two midwives who, all going well, are going to support me during the pregnancy, birth and first few weeks. [name_f]My[/name_f] 1st appointment with them is next month.

And, if we make it to 10 weeks, then we’ve decided we’ll find out the gender then (when our fertility specialists are allowed to request the gender from the lab that did our PGS testing). We’ll be delighted whatever the news, but can’t wait to find out if we’re team :heartpulse: or :blue_heart:!
