New to mumdrum - and pregnancy!


As my subject says, I am new to all of this and am feeling pretty overwhelmed with everything at the moment! I'm 6 weeks pregnant and this is my first baby.  I had my GP appointment yesterday and have a couple of weeks to go until I see the midwife, and so far I have been googling everything and managing to scare myself with everything I read! My best friend is also pregnant, although she is further along than me, and she recommended the site as a great source of information and support. So, here I am!  I am feeling OK so far, just very tired tired and I've picked up a cold this week - hard not to reach for the cold and flu remedies as I usually would.  I hope this will be a useful point of reference while I'm pregnant and if anyone has any advice for me, it will be gratefully received :)


  • Congratulations and welcome.

    There are daily threads for each trimester. They are really useful threads as everyone is in the boat. Here's to a happy 8 months for you x

  • Thank you - I will have a look x

  • Wave congratulations and welcome!

    It's hard not being able to take cold remedies - I used to crush paracetamol in with hot honey and lemon. Not the same as Lemsip, but soothing and safe for baby.

  • Huge contrats and welcome aboard :)

    Definitely get stuck in to the daily trimester threads. It makes you feel a lot more sane when you are worrying about every little niggle to hear that there are others in the same boat. Hope you have an uneventful 8 months ahead of you!

  • Welcome and congratulations! x

  • welcome & congratulations :) X

  • Thanks so much for the welcomes and congratulations. Still doesn't quite seem real!

  • Welcome and congratulations, joining Mumdrum is an excellent pregnancy decision! Definitely recommend getting stuck in on the daily threads, it's so nice to get to know people due a similar time to you.

    It's really only hitting me now that I'm having a baby (this is my first, too) so don't worry, it will sink in eventually!

    Hope you have a lovely, uneventful pregnancy :) x

  • Congratulations, and welcome to MD, it's a great place to be for pregnancy and babies!
