Hello everyone!! I’m nervous to be here, but I’m feeling positive this time around.

ROLL CALL!

How far along are you? 3w3d

Estimated due date? April 19, 2020

What # baby is this for you?  #1

How many cycles trying? 8 total (over 10 months), with 3 losses in there. This was the first cycle trying again after a break

When did you get your BFP? Today at 10dpo! 

Who have you told? My husband, a friend who has had a few losses before and is about to give birth, and a friend who has amazon prime and was able to order more FRERs for me πŸ˜› 

When do you plan to tell other people? I’m not sure. I don’t mind telling people early, but because I’ve had losses right now I’m just finding it hard to believe I’m pregnant again, so my plan is to take it a day at a time. I want to tell our family once I confirm my FRERs are actually getting darker and it’s not a CP, and for the rest I may wait until a first ultrasound where we see a heartbeat, since we’ve never seen that before

How did you tell your partner? I just showed him my cheapie as we were getting ready for work in the morning!

Any symptoms? I’ve been really emotional, but that’s a normal PMS thing for me

What are you most excited about? Getting another chance at a rainbow baby. Taking it one day at a time.

When is your first appointment? Not scheduled yet, but I’m going for blood work for my hcg and TSH on Monday and hopefully will be talking to my OB next week!

Are you planning to find out the gender? As SOON as possible!

ROLL CALL!

When did you get your BFP? Yesterday!

Who have you told? My best friend and my parents 

When do you plan to tell other people? Most people after 12 weeks but maybe a few more before that, not sure yet.

How did you tell your partner? I called him and sent him a picture of the positive test. Not nearly as cute as what I did with my first but I won’t see him for a week and theee was no way I could keep it to myself.

Any symptoms? So extremely tired (this is what made me test sooner than planned)

What are you most excited about? My daughter to have a sibling πŸ˜†

When is your first appointment?  Next Thursday

Are you planning to find out the gender? Yes

I love my mama group for my daughter and I can’t wait to get to know you ladies 😊

How far along are you?   4w1d

Estimated due date? 28th of April

What # baby is this for you? 1st

How many cycles trying? 5

When did you get your BFP?  Two days ago πŸ™‚

Who have you told? Husband & his best friend. He had to tell somebody as well to let it out of his system. 

When do you plan to tell other people? My family this Saturday and my best friend. First grandchild and great-grandchild on my side, so very excited. 

How did you tell your partner?  We weren’t exactly trying, just let it happen naturally, so it was a surprise for both of us. I put the test with a baby onesie and a card in a drawer and pretended to be making dinner. I asked him to hand me a fork and that’s when he saw. πŸ™‚ He ran to his car pretending to drive away, then came back laughing, gave me a big hug and a kiss. 

Any symptoms?  Exhaustion, acid reflux, hunger

What are you most excited about? The moment when they will tell me to push, you’re about to meet your baby. The whole road that leads up to that moment too, but that is definitely what I can’t wait for. 

When is your first appointment?   Next week

Are you planning to find out the gender?  Yes

 

Not sure if anybody is still active here or not, just figured would try my chances. 1st-time mum here so pretty nervous but beyond excited.

I’ve been nervous about posting in here (felt like I was tempting fate), but I’m just gonna go for it πŸ™‚

How far along are you? 4w6d

Estimated due date? April 25th

What # baby is this for you?  1

How many cycles trying? 4 years trying a variety of different things

When did you get your BFP? Last Tuesday (13th)

Who have you told? We have only told our immediate family and a handful of our closest friends. Everyone knew we were going through fertility treatments, so not saying anything would have been suspect anyways. 

When do you plan to tell other people? We will announce it to the world around the end of October (it’ll be our four year wedding anniversary)

How did you tell your partner? Had planned a really sweet surprise, as he had mentioned wanting to be surprised. My big mouth ruined it. Took a test, totally expecting to see a negative, and as I saw a second line darkening, I yelled “You gotta be fucking shitting me!” loud enough that it woke him up and he came to investigate. He thought the cats got into the trash again haha. Even so, he wasn’t convinced until he saw the digital test. 

Any symptoms? Pretty moderate cramps (don’t really cramp a ton during my period, so that was my first clue), my nipples and breasts are pretty tender (and those things have no feeling in them otherwise, even during my period), burping, headaches, tired, and a little dizziness. If I didn’t know I was pregnant, I would think I was getting sick. 

What are you most excited about? After four years? Um, EVERYTHING: crying babies at 3AM, dirty diapers, no more free time, spit up, birthdays, Christmas, seeing my husband with a baby, having zero sleep, having someone hanging off of me all the time. I want all of it. 

When is your first appointment? Sept 19th was my inital date, but currently sweet talking my way in the first week of Sept πŸ™‚

Are you planning to find out the gender? I joked to my husband that I wanted to be team green and he said, “MrsMeowton, you found out you were pregnant a whole week before your missed period (and a whole week before you were supposed to even be testing!!!), what on Earth makes you think you could wait long enough to find out the gender?” I will find out ASAP. We already have our names, so it’s just a matter of what we will be calling this little seed. Hubby is currently calling it “Sentator Squish”
