shanmia : The surprise went well! πŸ™‚ We basically got a card that something like “We heard you’ve got something to celebrate” and taped a pregnancy test strip inside – and then went over to my parents’ house as if we are just dropping by for lunch, and then gave them the card afterwards. Mom at first was like “what is this?” (she’s never seen a HPT before apparently), and when I told her it’s a pregnancy test strip, she shouted “are you pregnant?!” and started crying. Dad was totally caught offguard but was super excited too. πŸ™‚ Too bad my younger sister wasn’t around because of her weekend trip and had to hear via texts. 

Other than that, I suddenly became nauseous while eating my breakfast sandwich at work, especially when I got to the veggie patty portion. Now I constantly feel like there’s something caught in my throat and I want to go “blargh” (but not quite throw up). Anyone else feeling the same? I’m at 4 wks 5 days today.

Redholix :  Yup… that was how I felt in early pregnancy previously.  So nauseous, though I didn’t actually ever throw up.  I’ve felt some twinges of it so far (and yesterday morning for awhile was bad) but it hasn’t fully hit yet (4+4 here).  Things I’ve found helpful… all are somewhat helpful, none are magical:

– ginger ale (put in a cup if at work, otherwise may be a tip off)

– preggie pop drops (Target carries them, or places like Motherhood Maternity)

– other hard candy

– ginger tea

– eating often… esp carbs and protein, like cheese and crackers or english muffins and pb

– english muffins and pb were the only thing I could stomach for breakfast, for what felt like forever

– just avoid anything that sounds unappealing… it will make it worse to force it.

 

Also, super fun way to share with your parents!

How far along are you? Not sure, 3-ish weeks maybe? Had my IUD out July 3 and clearly got pregnant soon after but wasn’t tracking so have no clue when I O’d

Estimated due date? Mid-April I assume

What # baby is this for you? 1

How many cycles trying? Negative 2? Had intended to start in September 

When did you get your BFP? This morning!

Who have you told? My DH 

When do you plan to tell other people? I have a fmily trip in 2 weeks during which it will be obvious to all since I don’t be drinking coffee or alcohol so I guess they’ll find out then! I’ll share with a couple of my closest friends when I get back from the family trip.

How did you tell your partner? He’s traveling so had to do it over the phone. He HATES life surprises so I primed him last night that I was taking the test as I felt pregnant and so he was excited by the time I told him of the posiitve result this morning πŸ™‚

Any symptoms? Constant thirst, random very light nauseau, fatique and brain fuzziness

What are you most excited about? Everything! It’s earlier than we expected but I’m super excited for the entire experience!

When is your first appointment?   TBD 

Are you planning to find out the gender? Nope, but need to discuss with Darling Husband as I don’t feel super strongly about it.

 

It’s all happened really fast. We weren’t planning to start until Sept/Oct but since we’re both traveling alot for work in the interim we figured we’d just NTNP after the IUD was taken out. Statistically the chance of it ‘catching’ seemed so low as we’re only actually physically together for 3 weeks between July 3 and end of Sept. But I guess that was enough. I’m puzzled as to when I would have conceived though as I had IUD out July 3rd then bled until ~July 9/10th. I can’t remember if we BD’s night of the IUD removal or not (bleeding started late the day after). 

Symptoms started July 23rd week so I assume it was sometime shortly before then that we conceived but I can’t remember when Darling Husband and I were both home and BD’ed to make a more accurate calculation. 

I forgot my phone at home so can’t post a pick now of my test but it was VERY pink and popped up very quickly. While still peeing on the stick I could already see the positive line appearing so maybe I’m further along than I thought?
