MissTNBookworm:  Totally normal ( I think) I never take naps and I did almost every day last week when I was able. I was suprised at all the symptoms that came so early. I did not expect anything till later in the pregnancy but started feeling stuff at 2 weeks. I don’t think my usband believed me when I kept telling him I thought I was pregnant but I was feeling a lot of symptoms.

ok I’m tentatively joining in here –

 

ROLL CALL!! How far along are you? going by dates of last period I should be nearly 8 weeks, so the Dr referred me to get a scan to confirm dates which I had today and found out I’m only about 5 weeks ๐Ÿ˜• so that was a bit disappointing

What’s your estimated due date: I guess mid august?

How many cycles trying? ive only had two periods since going off the pill, but we weren’t really actively trying yet – bit of a surprise!

When did you get your BFP? last Thursday

Who have you told? just my husband and my parents. my mum calls me all the time so it would’ve been weird to not mention it for so long

When do you plan on telling more people? i think we should tell the in laws at Christmas (so they don’t offer me champagne every 5 minutes), otherwise I would like to wait until after we’ve had a more conclusive ultrasound. I’m not planning on any kind of big announcement, that’s not my style – people can just find out when they find out

How did you tell your partner? just called him straight away while he was at work. i wanted to talk to him as soon as possible!

Any symptoms yet? sore/growing boobs, LOTS of naps. and I get hungry very suddenly and feel like if I don’t eat something right away I might faint. 

What are you most excited about/for? I really dont know. i like making baby clothes? ooh and hearing those happy baby noises

When is your first appt? I went to the GP as soon as I found out, she ordered blood tests and my ultrasound but she’s not an antenatal specialist so I still need to find one that works with our hospital of choice

Will you be finding out the sex or being team green? finding out. It’s still a surprise no matter when you find out, and there’ll be enough to think about on the day!

mrsgiraffe15:  Thank you! It was awesome to see the CB progressing. I think I’ll be a little relieved once I get the 3+.

MissTNBookworm:  I’m constantly exhausted too, I nap everytime I can. This weekend I napped both days, one was for like 2.5 hours!

marjoriebutterworth:  Welcome. I thought the intense hunger was just me, glad I’m not alone. H&H 9 months to you.

Anyone else feel like this is all still a dream? 

 

ROLL CALL!

How far along are you? Four weeks tomorrow

EDD: August 23, 2016

Cycles Trying: 2

BFP: 12/13, at 12DPO

Who have you told? Just Darling Husband

When are you gonna tell everyone else? I want to tell my parents on Christmas, maybe my best friend too. Everyone else I probably won’t tell until February

How I told Darling Husband: I had plans to buy a cute onesie, but when I tested it was 4:45 in the morning, and was so unexpected, that I just jumped in bed and told him. He cried, it was incredibly sweet

Any symptoms yet? I am moody, my boobs hurt, and last night I had a terrible headache, but not sure if that was pregnancy related or not

Most excited for: I don’t even know, everything! 

First appt: I still have to call, but I have my yearly Jan.6th. I guess I’ll call and see what they want to do

Finding out gender? Definitely! Can’t wait!

I tested again this morning (was going to wait for tomorrow, but I couldn’t!) And the line was a little darker ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy to join the thread! I have PCOS and was anticipating a long and difficult TTC journey. We got pregnant on our second month trying!!

How far along are you? 5+2

What’s your estimated due date: 14 August 2016

How many cycles trying? 2

When did you get your BFP? 7 November 2015

Who have you told? Only my best friend

When do you plan on telling more people? Telling our parents over Christmas, and everyone else after 12 weeks

How did you tell your partner? I sat him down and asked if there is anything major he wants to do in his life, he should do it before August next year. After giving me a very confused look, I showed him the pee stick

Any symptoms yet? Super teary, cramps here and there, and a dot in my lower abdomen sometimes cramps when I sneeze

What are you most excited about/for? I’m most excited for the first ultrasound to put my mind at ease that there is actually a healthy bean in there

When is your first appt? Not sure. I called last week to make an appointment, but they sent me for hcg and progestorone bloodwork. They will call me this week to make the appointment.

Will you be finding out the sex or being team green? Team Green But if we cave and find out, we will be keeping it between the two of us. I really don’t want too many gender-specific gifts

Post a pic of your BFP if you want! Haha I’ve been testing every second day to make sure the lines are getting darker – last one is this morning’s (don’t judge me – I have quite a few of these tests lying around)

Does anyone else have strong feelings they may be carrying multiples?

I’ve just had this susppicious feeling that I am ever since I got my BFP at 9dpo. I accidentally spilled the beans to a coworker of mine last night who asked if I was pregnant and I’m a horrible liar so she put two and two together. Then a couple hours later we were both charting and she turned to me and said, “you’re going to have twins. I just have this feeling.” Evidently she said that to another coworker of ours a few years back and she was correct, that other nurse did end up have two beautiful babies. I just can’t help but wonder if my coworker has some sixth sense and if my suspicions are correct. It’s making me very impatient for our first u/s! ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s your estimated due date: August 25

How many cycles trying? 7

When did you get your BFP? Yesterday, Dec. 14. Not sure when I ovulated but CD 30 (usualy 33 long)

Who have you told? Darling Husband, Dear Daughter (17 months old lol), and the July 2014 Bee Mommas FB group.

When do you plan on telling more people? Our parents pretty soon. I see my mom too much to keep it a secret long. Not sure for others.

Any symptoms yet? Just a bit crampy here and there 

What are you most excited about/for? Teeny tiny newborn cuddles!

When is your first appt? I need to pick a new doctor but I have one in mind, so I’ll probably call in the next few days. I’m guessing mid-January around 8 weeks.

Hi ladies, I rolled called last week..but looks like my time here will be short lived. I had some brown spotting for a few days and so I had an early scan today.  I’m 5 weeks 5 days and all that was seen today was an empty sac, was told they should be seeing a yolk sac by now. Going next week for one more scan, but I’m preparing for another loss (had a missed miscarriage in September at 9 weeks). Just wanted to wish a Happy & Healthy 9 months to you all.

OhBeeHive84:  I am so sorry to hear this. Do you know when you ovulated? Could it be a late O as to why they’re not seeing a yolk sac yet?
