    Hello there, I am also due early Oct with my first. Great to see other mums-to-be here :) This is my 10th week now and I am still feeling very nauseous and very sensitive to smells...still trying to find foods I can eat without feeling uncomfortable after. Also belly is starting to show a little.

    Sounds good! Tuesdays, Thursdays or Fridays are usually better for me, though it can sometimes change....

    One other thing, does anyone have a full-time job here? Just wondering, if you've sent in your notice about your pregnancy yet? What did you write? I think I need to send mine in soon since I've now reached my 12 weeks but "Hey, I'm pregnant" doesn't quite seem right..!?! Any advice?

    Maza - Congrats on seeing the HB

    PF - Good luck for your 12 week scan today. I'm not working so I can't help you on the 'how to tell work that you're pg' thing.

    Nicole - Have a fun time in Shanghi.

    Nina & Sasha - Congrats on your pregnancies and welcome to the thread.

    I'm still suffering from the m/s and I'm 11+5 today - when will it ever end??? Not sure if I'm showing or not? Think I may have got a little tummy from all the eating I'm doing trying to keep the nausea at bay!

    IT'S A BOY!!!!! We saw "signs" of it being a boy and the doc said he reckons there's a 60-70% chance that it's a boy! Was quite shocked how the baby looked so different from our previous scan (of a blob!)....eventhough I'd been reading all the sites with all the pics of "baby at week 12" etc.

    Tink - I'm afraid I can't help with the m/s either as I didn't suffer from any. The mild nausea that I had on some ocassions when I went on the bus appears to have gone now... I've heard most women get over m/s by the end of the first trimester... So, hopefully, not long to go!!!

    Ninahh - Have you been exercising regularly before pregnancy? Any yoga/cardio? I'm actually an instructor at a studio called mYoga. They have classes like restorative yoga, women's yoga, stretch that may be suitable. If you are looking for cardio and strengthening, they have a programme called "Bodyvive" as well. Of course, other gyms may well provide similar classes, mYoga is just the one I know well! If you'd like to know more, do let me know.

    I need to figure out how/when to tell my bosses - I currently am working two part time jobs, teaching English... I haven't told my bosses yet. I was planning to around week 13. That way they should have some warning before I start to show ;) lol - one of my jobs, I JUST started though - signed the contract last week and haven't even done my first shift yet!! But the pay is $350 an hr, so I'm gonna try to work as long as possible!!

    Nina - welcome!!

    Oh and about lunch - at the moment, any day is good for me. I only work on Saturdays for another few weeks... then I'll be working maybe 2 weekdays... definitely Monday, not sure what else...

    I've been thinking about maternity yoga but I haven't looked into it or anything yet...

    PF, yes i have been working out almost every day. but haven't done anything for the last two months. i would love to know some more about that plave you've mentioned.
    Wow, a boy! Congratulations!
    nicolejoi, I am an English teacher too. I work full time in a kinderkarten, and I have told them already. they were very happy for me and it was no problem at all. where do you work?
    lunch always sounds great but as i have to work everyday i could be a little difficult for me.
