misschickpea:  Thank you so much for starting this!!!

ROLL CALL!!

How far along are you? 4 w 3 d

What’s your estimated due date: August 5th

How many cycles trying? Lucky #3!

When did you get your BFP? 11/22 at 9 dpo

Who have you told? We told our immediate family on Thanksgiving. My husband’s family rented a cabin near where my parents live and we all had Thanksgiving together. We couldn’t miss the opportunity since the last time our families were both together was at our wedding. It was perfect.

When do you plan on telling more people? We plan to wait at least until Christmas. I don’t think the family can keep the secret much longer than that.

How did you tell your partner? I saw the line the day before on an IC, but he didn’t. I picked up an frer on the way home from work and his favorite baby book from when he was a kid. I handed him both and he figured it out. It was really sweet and he actually cried.

Any symptoms yet? Well, I’ve known I was pregnant since 5 dpo. I felt unlike I ever have. I also had to pee at least every hour which is out of the norm for me being a nurse. I thought I had a uti and actually went to my doctor and he tested me and said it wasn’t a uti. That’s when I suspected it was bc I was pregnant. He did a urine preg test in the office, but I was only 7 dpo and nothing showed up. The next day at 8 dpo, sure enough, I had a squinter. I also had light cramps until a couple days ago. Now I don’t really have any symptoms so far.

What are you most excited about/for? Seeing the baby on the ultrasound and planning the nursery.

When is your first appt? Tomorrow morning!

Will you be finding out the sex or being team green? I would like to be team green, but I’m sure we will find out.

Post a pic of your BFP if you want!

I had my first ob appointment today and everything went well.  It was basically just a pregnancy confirmation, outline of what appointments I will have the next few months, and an overview of what I should/shouldn’t eat, etc.  My first ultrasound is December 30th.  It seems like forever away!

Now that I’m pregnant, I seem to be more obsessed with testing to make sure they are getting darker. I bought a weeks estimator tonight and it says 2-3 weeks since conception, which is about right since I’m 4w3d. Anyone else who can’t stop testing?  I just want to make sure my hcg is increasing since my ob didn’t do a blood test and 12/30 seems like forever away.

dancindavinci:  compulsive tester over here. Did a week’s estimator a couple days ago and got 3+, which is pretty close to what I expected. Unfortunately that’s when it maxes out, so until I get in to see the doctor, I’m flying blind :-/

dancindavinci:  I have taken tons! It’s actually really embarrassing, I’m so paranoid after previous losses, I can’t seem to help it.

Anyone getting anymore symptoms? I dry heaved into the sink yesterday after smelling my sons peach yogurt. But today I’m fine. I also did my blood test today, I was hoping to get my beta number, but my Dr.’s office closed. I go back on Wednesday to make sure it’s doubling. I’m very nervous about it.
