How far along are you? 3w 6d

Estimated due date: 4/26

Is this your first child? No. My daughter turned 1 last week!

How are you feeling? Tired. Nauseous on and off but it’s manageable. Back ache ever so often, a bit emotional, and I have a stronger sense of smell.

What are you most excited about? Hearing the baby’s heartbeat and seeing my little sweetpea.

What are you most nervous about? Getting through the first trimester. My first pregnancy went great! We had a MC this past April so I’m a little worried for this one. I am relieved whenever my symptoms are more amplified.

What will you miss most while pregnant? Coffee. I plan to follow the same regimen that I followed with my daughter. No coffee.

Who have you told so far? My husband, the Bee, and my doctor’s office.

Include a picture of your BFP if you want! I am becoming a POAS addict. I take a test whenever I feel discouraged. Hoping I can get out of this rut and eventually enjoy this pregnancy.

YAY! Roll call is my favourite part!

How far along are you? 5weeks4days

Estimated due date: April 14th

Is this your first child? Yes!

How are you feeling? I feel fine to be honest.  Symptoms come and go. Nothing too horrible really.

What are you most excited about? Right now? Getting my ultrasound at the end of next week. Maybe it will feel more real then.  

What are you most nervous about? Losing the baby.  It took 2 years to get here. 

What will you miss most while pregnant? Beer and wine. 

Who have you told so far? My 2 best friends and my mom figured it out last week.  I had a whole plan to tell her and it went out the window when she guessed.  I’m a bad liar. 

Include a picture of your BFP if you want! Here’s 3 out of 5 taken.

How far along are you? About 4 weeks, 1 day

What’s your estimated due date: April 29

Is this your first child? Yes!

How are you feeling? Despite some of the “lovely” symptoms, fine. Excited. Knowing that there will be a baby at the end of this makes it all worth it.

What are you most excited about? Right now, my Dr’s appointment on Friday. I feel like once I get to see my OB and get my betas, everything will seem more real.

What are you most nervous about? Honestly, besides losing the baby would be weight gain. 

What will you miss most while pregnant? Cookie Dough and Coffee

Who have you told so far? DH and Work Bestie.

How far along are you? 5 weeks, 5 days

Estimated due date: April 13

Is this your first child? Yup!

How are you feeling? Started to feel crappy in the last few days. TERRIBLE food aversions and reflux. Also having trouble sleeping, but only at night! I nap like a champ. 

What are you most excited about? EVERYTHING. At the moment, looking forward to next week’s ultrasound and hoping hearing a heartbeat will give me some confidence. Also can’t wait for having a real bump!

What are you most nervous about? Miscarriage. We have a small chance of that having done genetic testing and on progesterone support, but still SO nervous. IVF was rough and the thought of losing our baby after all that makes me terrified. 

What will you miss most while pregnant? Wine. Right now it sounds so disgusting, but sure that I will start missing it before too long! 

Who have you told so far? Lots of people. We weren’t shy about doing IVF because we wanted support, so a lot of family/friends knew what was going on and were anxiously awaiting results. One of the best parts though was telling one of my best friends who was also having fertility treatments and finding out she’d been waiting for my results to tell me she was pregnant! We’re three weeks apart. 

Include a picture of your BFP if you want! My obsessive tracking of my line progression

Question: have you ladies got your midwife or OB figured out? We used a specialist since it took so long to get pregnant and he transfers care at 8-9 weeks so we need to choose ours asap! there are so many options though!

txlolo:  i have no idea. We are with the specialist too so i guess i will have that figured out next week at the appointment.  Its an ultrasound and sit down with our specialist so she will probably explain the proceedure.

txlolo:  We are using the same OB who saw me through my last pregnancy. She’s a natural fertility OB/GYN who is a big fan of natural childbirth and noninvasive pregnancy interventions and procedures like NT scans and stripping of the membranes. She’s good and keeps me on my p’s and q’s when it comes to weight gain and healthy lifestyle. She supports me working out through pregnancy too.

BeccaBee83:  how was your first pregnancy? I read something that said that “every pregnancy is different to remind us that every child is different”. That may be BS but it sounds nice. lol

How far along are you? 5 weeks 2 days

Estimated due date: April 16th

Is this your first child? Yes!

How are you feeling? Physically, not that great aha. I already have pretty bad morning sickness, very tender breasts/nipples, and am super bloated/gassy – plus I get headaches throughout the day if I’m not drinking water frequently and I get some very brief aching/cramping that catches me off guard ๐Ÿ˜‰ Emotionally though I’m very happy and feel like this is a very strong/healthy pregnancy. As much as I hate feeling sick, it is also weirdly reassuring.

What are you most excited about? Right now I’m excited to see my belly grow and someday be able to feel the baby move/have DH feel the baby kick.

What are you most nervous about? Miscarriage. This is my first pregnancy and I know it’s still early so I’m nervous. I know there’s a small chance, but it seems way bigger and more possible when I see so many women sharing stories of their miscarriages on different forums.

What will you miss most while pregnant? Ahah I already didn’t really eat/drink anything that isn’t allowed during pregnancy so pretty much nothing food related – I guess radishes? I already miss going to work without feeling queasy but it’s definitely worth it ๐Ÿ˜‰

Who have you told so far? Our parents, my brother, and my grandma ๐Ÿ™‚

Include a picture of your BFP if you want!

Here’s my first FRER from 11DPO (August 5th) ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m saving the second one for Saturday when I’m 6 weeks, just for fun!
