Hi All, Was at GP yesterday and got my first pregnancy confirmed - due date 5th May 2012 - I couldn't see a May babies thread so here we go :o)ll :o)ll I know its maaaaaad early but I have decided I'm going to ignore the possibility of anything else happening other than it all going well. Totally new to it all - I have no nieces or nephews yet and am generally learning as I go along. Have decided to go the 'public route'. Anyone else out there with a similar due date?

I have the killer sore boobs too Mrs Sensible, feel very very bloated but thank god other than that I'm right as rain, no nausea or sickness at all. Where I live you get your first scan at 20 weeks which I thought was a bit late! :eek :eek Just today booked an early scan privately for when I will be just over 9 weeks in early October. I think May will be a lovely month to deliver, better chance of good weather, having visions of me & baby relaxing on a picnic blanket in a flowery meadow :o0 reality will probably be very different. Missing my Friday evening vino like crazy, how the heck am I going to get through the next 8 months, I have not had an alcohol free 9 months since I was 16 :hic

Its such an exciting time isn't it!! Malteserbunny im the same, no other symptoms besides the chest but its weird cause on DS I was a bit sickly at this stage. Have to say though the tiredness is unreal, kinda feels like ive been hit by a hammer in the evenings. 20 weeks is a bit far away alright for your first scan, you were dead right to get the private scan, it'll put your mind at ease aswell. I'm going public aswell and where i am i think ill get the scan at about 12-13 weeks and cant wait for that so it will make it feel more real. I thought May would be lovely aswell, hopefully we might get a nice summer next year!!! Thanks a mill aswell Marles and Summersurprise, really appreciate the good wishes. :thnk

Tiny bit anxious this eve as I noticed some brown spotting (sorry if tmi :-8 ) Just a small bit but really hoping it goes away. I know it can be considered normal/usual for early pregnancy, fingers crossed it doesn't get red/heavier, positivity all the way. Anyone else been through this? Nerve wracking business this.

Oh malteserbunny I have everything crossed for you. Please god now its only a small bit of bleeding cause that can honestly be very normal. I remember the last time on DS after DTD near the start of my pregnancy I had a tiny bit of bleeding so maybe that might be something to do with it. Try your best not to worry but I know thats easier said than done. I'll say a prayer for you and your little bean :action32

Malteserbunny- hope all ok? Spotting is very normal so try not to worry. I got a BFP this weekend- shocked as I haven't had a period since May (got married in June so stress stopped them!). So really didn't think it would happen for a long time as thought I'd need to get my AF back on track! Had symptoms 2 weeks ago but presumed it was finally my AF coming! I had to go for an early scan yesterday to get my due date - I'm first week of May too!! 6 weeks gone and just can't wait to get to the 12 week stage!! It was amazing though- only 6 weeks and could see the heart beating! So all going well so far! I think I'm showing already- the hormones have me so bloated :-8 ! Plus I need to eat every 2 hours to stop the nausea! I'm going private in Newry- I really debated it as it will cost 2k but my mum called yesterday to say they'll get us a bugaboo (all going well of course- too early to be talking about buggies!) so that will be a great help so we can afford it if we start saving now!
