ROLL CALL!

How far along are you?   4 weeks and 2 days according to online calculators. My period is expected this weekend so it doesn’t feel real until then! 

Estimated due date?  1st April 2020!

What # baby is this for you? 1

How many cycles trying? This was our first. We were both convinced it would take ages as we are a little older. 

When did you get your BFP? Tuesday morning. Tested again this morning and the line is even darker

Who have you told?  My husband and my best friend who was the only person who knew we were TTC, I can’t wait to tell family! 

When do you plan to tell other people? Hopefully at 12 weeks but might tell close family sooner and might have to tell my boss sooner depending on how I get on. 

How did you tell your partner? I stupidly tested without him as I was sure it would be a BFN when we were due to test this weekend and I wanted to manage his expectations a bit as he was convinced I was and as it was our first month I thought it was very unlikely! So I tested and then rang him and said I had been naughty and tested. He was over the moon but is waiting for me to test again this weekend. 

Any symptoms? My digestive system has been a mess and feeling a bit sick and dizzy. 

What are you most excited about? I can’t wait to be a Mum full stop, and I cannot wait to see my husband hold our child. 

When is your first appointment?   Not sure yet, I need to fill out a load of forms and wait for the midwifery team to contact me. 

Are you planning to find out the gender? I think we are going to wait until it is born!

Congrats

ROLL CALL!

How far along are you? 4w2d

Estimated due date? April 1, 2020

What # baby is this for you? 2nd, my son will be 2 in November

How many cycles trying? 12, includiing 3 IUIs and 2 chemical pregnancies.  I debated waiting to post here but I figure it’s out of my hands at this point.

When did you get your BFP? 7/23

Who have you told? husband, work friend, WB infertility group and some friends from my Nov 2016 baby group

When do you plan to tell other people? family around 6-7 weeks (when we’ll all be together) and everyone else after the first trimester

How did you tell your partner? I texted him (sad but true).  We’ve been trying for a year with some losses so it’s kind of hard to get excited.  So different from when I got my first BFP and gave him a onesie and the postiive test

Any symptoms? cramping, hunger and the need to pee at all times

What are you most excited about? my son’s reaction to everything.  So many of the moms at daycare have recently had second kids and he keeps asking if there is a baby in mommy’s belly.  He loves babies and I’ve always wanted him to be a big brother.

When is your first appointment?   since I’ve been seeing a specialist, I had a blood draw yesterday and I’ll have another tomorrow to confirm beta is doubling.  If that is all good, I’ll have an ultrasound next week

Are you planning to find out the gender? AHHHH, just not sure.  We found out with my son at 12 weeks and I’d LOVE to be team green but I’m a super type A planner so just not sure I can wait.

 

I cant wait to get to know you ladies!  Same!  and I love the group name – esp since I call my son (and all kids really love bugs).

Mrs_Beer :  out of curiosity, how old are you?  We had our first at 37 (easy pregnancy) and I’m staring down 40 for this one …

ChiTownBee27 :  Congratulations! I am 34, will be 35 when I (hopefully) give birth, and husband is 41 and it is our first baby, so we really expected it to take longer. Taking it all with a pinch of salt at the moment as it is early days and I know the finish line is a long way away!

Mrs_Beer :  If it helps at all, we were both 37 when my first was born (conceived at 36) and I got pregnant on the first try and had a super easy and uncomplicated pregnancy and birth.  Fingers crossed you have the same!
