Im looking for moms due April 2014. Im 5/6 weeks pregnant, first time mom from South Afica.

Would like to chat to ladies about their pregnancy. I'm not telling anyone until the end of first trimester so some buddies would be nice :)


I'm due In April too! Although, we are still trying to confirm a viable pregnancy. I'm 4 w 3 d so it's still SUPER early. I will get my second blood test on Thursday to check if levels are progressing. This is baby #4 for us!

Wow thats awsome !!! congrats I am also still early. My HCG was 411 last tuesday. Had another test done yesterday. We are visiting my in-laws this weekend, I want to make sure we are definately pregnant before I tell them.(once my mother in law knows the whole world will know) When did you tell your in-laws / family with your last ones? People say I shouldnt tell as something can go wrong and then you dont want the whole wold to know. I so exited - want to tell people...but should probably wait till I had the fist ultrasound. My sister and mother (and obviously husband) knows.

Hi, I'm from Johannesburg and due in April too! 6 weeks and 5 days along.

Well, I was suspose to be due april 20th. Then I had bad cramps, so I went to the er. When I should have been 6wks, I was only measuring at 4 with no fetal pole!!! Scared the crap outta me!! Had blood work and my levels were at the very low part of doubling. So the next wk I had another emergency u.s. done by the ob. They spotted the smallest dot!!! It measured at just 6wks!!! One wk off the dates but hey!! They spotted my baby with a heartbeat!!! This past wk I had another u.s to see my dot now looking like a jelly bean!!! The Lord is surely good and has blessed us with number 6!!! These next few wks I'm still a bit nervous but I'm sure God has my back just as he always does:-) so here's my journey to baby number 6!!! May 1st!! Hey!!! Not april, but still here for you!! :-) I'm in secret also. We get a lot of negativity as if we need it from the world, so my husband and I decided to keep our joy to ourselves.

I am on my 3rd child and although I'm due May 2nd, I figured I'm not too far from the crowd. I needed some comforting women to chat with also. I started telling people last week when i was only 6 weeks, then I has some bleeding and thought I was threatening a miscarriage. So I advise you not to start telling everyone quite yet. Thank God the bleeding stopped and I have my next appt this Thursday so my OB can check the heartbeat and everything. I went 2 weeks ago, but at only 5wks/6days, I was still too small. So he scheduled me to come back 2 weeks later. Which will be this Thursday. i hope all is well. Has anyone found a way to kind of help with morning sickness? The nausea is almost unbareable for me!

Try peppermints :-) :-) worked with me and my 4h:-)

Hi from Guelph Ontario here! I'm also due April 3rd but will most likely deliver in March!! Congrats to you all. Hope everyone's babies are doing well!! I just had my 4th ultrasound and I saw my little baby flipping all over the place. Anyone else can feel the baby kick yet. I have a rare condition where I have two uterus' and the uterus the baby is in, is pushed right up against my stomach and I can already feel him/her kicking. The ultrasound tech confirmed that I was right and it was the baby moving around. I can't wait until April, I'm so excited. This is my 8th pregnancy and only 1 has survived so I feel so blessed to be with this child. If anyone is interested in talking I'd love to have a due date buddy :)

Hi Guelph!! So excited for you!!! Praying your jumping bean presses thru!! Yes, I have felt little vibrations from my jellys movements. They say the more babies you have the sooner you my feel things or even start to show! I'm 8wks and 4 days and this is my 7th baby 5 live and this one! :-) :-) :-)

Hi everyone!! I'm 11 wks pregnant and due April 25th! This is our second baby and we are so very excited! Happy to be on a board with other ladies due around the same time ;-)

Hi people! Live in NYC, I'm 13 wks and 1 day, due April 12th. First one and it's pretty much a miracle. I'm showing but still have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming.!

Hey! I'm glad I found a group of women so close to my due date. I'm due April 9th, give or take as the docs say. Congrates to all you first times, it awesome when you see that little baby for the first time. I'm on #2 but this pregnancy is way different then the last. Way sicker and the sickness pills dont work. Those of you with this problem: lemon heads, peppermint or spearmint, and I know it sounds weird but celery. Smelling chamomile tea leaves helped too.

Hi all Due April 5th and more nervous than anything..ive felt activity from week 12 and with my 1st pregnancy i think i only started feeling baby in my 5th month,im 15 weeks 3days..would love a boy!!has anyone gone to find out what they are having..I wasnt as nervous with my 1st pregnancy!now im a ball of nerves and tears!!going for my 20 week scan but i feel thats so far,just wanna make sure everythings normal and if im buying pink or blue!!

Hi! I'm due April 5 also! Havent found out yet if its a boy or girl but hopefully in the next few weeks! This is my 3rd. Already have a boy (10) and a girl (6). Really hope this one is another boy. :-) This pregnancy has been so much different than my others, so I can't even compare. Hope everyone is doing well!

Hi everyone. Havn't been here in a while. Great to hear from all of you. I'm over the queezy feeling, but starting to feel too big for my clothes now. (16.4 weeks) My bump is just big enough to look like a small beer belly :) Struggling with: Hayfever/sinus - doc gave me a nose spray. Back spasms (due to yoga???) - slow mag frizzy capsules / massage therapy. Nosebleeds - I read this is normal :) We don't know the gender yet, couldnt see last time around. We are going to the doc in a week, so hopefully we will find out by then. Oh and I havnt felt a kick. Doc said the baby lached at the back, so might take some time. Good luck all!!!! PS. I read the birhstone for April is diamonds. Started to put the idea in hubby's head :)

Forgot to ask all the 2nd 3rd time moms: Would you recommend prenatal classes? and why?

I personally never took prenatal classes with any of mine. Instinct just kinda kicked in for me when it was time, but I'm also a reader so I read everything I could get my hands on so maybe that helped me too. I started feeling butterfly movements around the 15 week mark (mine also attached in the back) but this is my 3rd and they say the more you have the earlier you may notice movement. I'm at my prenatal visit now waiting for doc. Wish me luck!

I am due on the April 7th. Anyone still around for the same dates?

April 5th here
