Hopefully, there will be a crazy amount of BFPs coming so we can get the September 2012 thread rolling! I’m pretty early into September, so I’m pretty sure I’m one of the first ones on here. 🙂 September is my birth month as well, so I’m so excited my LO will be sharing it with me!
(Copied from previous baby posts)
Date of BFP: 12/24! What a great Christmas gift!
How far along are you? 4w2d
Estimated due date: September 3 – one day before my birthday!
Date of first prenatal appointment: January 5 with the midwives. (I’m getting blood work done at my PMD on 12/29 though)
How are you feeling? I don’t have very many symptoms… I’ve been a bit tired and crampy. I have been super bloated though. My pants already don’t close comfortably!
Who have you told? Our immediate family, pretty much. We’ve been waiting for this baby in our family for a while, and if things weren’t to go well with this pregnancy, we’d want the support of our families anyway.
What are you reading/google searching/preparing for? Maternity clothes, pregnancy symptoms, if cramping is normal, nursery ideas, miscarriage stats, etc. I can’t get enough!

Hey Shimmer, I’m from the August board, but just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS! Also, cramping is really normal, I think almost everyone on our board had it to some extent or another… just one of those things you dont really find out about til you’re actually pregnant. Anyway, good luck, and I hope you have lots of September mamas joining you soon!

@PandasWifey: Thanks! I feel so crazy right now since I’ve never been through this before. I might tag along on the August thread until a couple more BFPs come to light! 🙂

I’m so excited to be a part of this with you ladies!
Date of BFP: 12/28 – Totally shocked!!
How far along are you? 3 weeks 5 days (I’m 12 DPO today!)
Estimated due date: I’m thinking sometime around Sept 6th
Date of first prenatal appointment: I haven’t even called the doctor’s office yet. I kind of want to wait until my period is actually missed before I jump the gun, but I have 5 pregnancy tests telling me i’m pregnant. Yes, I really took that many in two days!
How are you feeling? I feel completely normal. The only weird thing is i’ve been having extremely vivid dreams for the past week. Usually, I can’t remember them at all, so this was strange. I feel slightly crampy. Really tired because I haven’t had caffeine in two days 🙁
Who have you told? Only my husband! We’ll keep it under wraps until we go to the doctor and see a heartbeat.
What are you reading/google searching/preparing for? What to do next! I’m so clueless. I want to pick up the book What to Expect when You’re Expecting.
Happy and healthy 9 months to everyone here! Can’t wait to see more sapphire mommas!

Congrats to all you September mommy’s! I’m a September, 2011 mommy! My LO came right on her due date (by unexpected c-section after finding out she was breech). Everything else was picture perfect! Happy and healthy pregnancy’s to all!

Yay for having 4 September mommies already! 🙂
@sarahlyn2626: Sticky baby dust! 🙂
@Audreysdance: You have such a great story for your honeymoon! We tried for a honeymoon baby in St. Lucia, but my ovulation was thrown off from traveling.
@yellowbird: Yay! Welcome! I’m pretty clueless as well. I’ve been Googling just about everything that I know about pregnancy, since I’m only the second one of my friends (and first in my family!) to get pregnant. We’re all in this together!

@L2sweetpea: I’m glad you had a great pregnancy and birth! Congrats on your LO, I hope all is well! 🙂

Hey sapphire bees. It’s 5:27am in NYC and I can’t sleep! Am I the only one having preggo insomnia? It might also be jet lag since I just got back from Thailand andCambodia but I just can’t seem tosleep more that 5 or 6 hours. Could beexcitement too.

I am just so excited to be here!
Last night Darling Husband and I took a test and it’s official… we’re pregnant 🙂 It wasn’t something that we had planned for this very moment but I am just so happy I literally can’t sleep.
Date of BFP: 12/30
How far along are you? I’m actually not 100% sure… We BDed on December 12th and I think I Oed December 13th? We waited to test until I had the 18 days if high temps. Yeesh.. I’m really early. I have short cycles but I’m not 100% clear on it all. Lol maybe this is why we’re pregnant.
Estimated due date: ? Early September?
Date of first prenatal appointment: I’m calling my doctor after the new years holidays. Hopefully she can get me in.
How are you feeling? All in all I feel completely normal. I have been going to the bathroom a lot and have had some fatigue but that’s about it. More to come?
Who have you told? Only my husband and we plan to keep it that way for awhile. I don’t want to get family’s hopes up and we know both sets of parents that once they’re told they will tell the world. God forbid if something happens we don’t want to have to explain to a million people.
What are you reading/google searching/preparing for? I’m waiting for Barnes and Noble to open so I can hurry up and buy some baby books!

@Littlebean912: Congrats!! Glad to see another member of our little group!
I know cramping is normal in early pregnancy, but I can’t help being paranoid my period is going to start any moment. These cramps don’t really feel like AF cramps. They’re really short and just mildly annoying. I thought about taking some tylenol to see if they would go away, but I haven’t yet.
I’ve already taken another pregnancy test this morning! I should probably stop and just believe what they tell me.

I know I just couldn’t believe seeing that positive test! We hadn’t really been trying but I just felt like something felt different. In my heart of hearts I knew I was but just seeing it on the test was wow! I bought What to Expect and a book that goes week by week of the pregnancy. Very exciting 🙂
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! What a year 2012 looks like it will be 🙂

Happy New Year everyone!!! I am very excited for 2012 🙂

happy new year sweet bees! i hope we all have wonderful pregnancies with sticky happy and healthy babies.
lets run off some deets: my baby is 5 weeks today and the size of an appleseed. i am having MAJOR breast soreness of the beginnings of some mild nausea. everyday i feel more and more pregnant and more and more excited. as i mentioned before my sleep is suffering a little bit and i continue to pee non stop and have bad gas and constipation. i also get flushed and i dont know about you ladies but i swear i have seen my uterus stretch out and notice a total protrusion from that plus bloat.
