ROLL CALL:

How far along are you? 6w 1day based on withdrawal bleed from pill 

What’s your estimated due date: Weeeeellll. Technically 31st of July so I shouldn’t be here. Oops. But I don’t think I am quite that far along. 

How many cycles trying? 1

When did you get your BFP? 3/12 (or 12/3 in American)

Post a picture of your first BFP if you want! 

Who have you told? Husband. Whoever answers the phone to book a midwife appointment.

When do you plan on telling more people? After 12 week scan. I need to see a baby. Except for my best friend. I’m going to tell her soon. 

How did you tell your partner? Ambushed him as soon as he got in the door, basically talked at him for 10 minutes, took another test, then went together to buy a digital ( SO expensive, BTW!)

Any symptoms yet? My boobs are bigger. I feel nauseous and off food but I am 99% sure that that’s anxiety.  I have gone through a bad period of anxiety once before and felt the exact same way about food. As I wrote earlier, I am really freaked out, and terrified that this is my body hoaxing me. I had a good cry last night and feel a bit stronger. I am resisting taking another test, but can’t think of anything else that will reassure me. As odd as it sounds, I wish I was puking my guts up. 

What are you most excited about/for? everything. I want this so badly. Seeing a baby at the scan will be…there are no words. 

When is your first appt? Not until early Jan. Argh. They offered me end of December but I couldn’t do it due to travel. 

For fun – Will you be finding out the gender? Yes!

I’m 6 weeks 2 days and I feel terrible. I’m starving and nauseous and full all at the same time. I try to eat and it’s like my mouth doesn’t want to chew or swallow. I’m also suffering from a yeast infection. I just feel terrible and it’s too early to tell anyone so I can’t talk to my mom or friends who have been here. I booked a private scan for 7weeks 2 days because even though I feel awful all day and night I still don’t believe it’s real. I had a tiny amount of pink spotting and the first thing that came up on Google was molar pregnancy so now I’m worried I have a cancer pregnancy and that’s why I’m starving all the time. I know I’m whining but maybe there’s someone else in the same boat and we can commiserate together.

banchibg :  I am so sorry you are having such a rough week. I am having some very similar struggles and it is really unfun. I want to be happy and excited but my mind is in overdrive. Two things I am trying:

– not googling. And if I do, sticking to only reputable sources  (e.g., Mayo Clinic). Good sources provide risk data. So yes, a molar pregnancy is a possibility, but it is very rare. We live with uncertainty and small risks all the time in life (e.g., someone might rear end me, I might choke on this steak), and don’t spend every waking moment thinking about all the what ifs. 

– remembering that worrying changes nothing. It doesn’t make anything happen. It won’t protect us from misfortune, and it won’t cause misfortune. It’s just words, and all it does is causes us upset. It doesn’t give us any more control over the situation.  

Anyone else got any advice? I can go from being totally fine, to being a mushy pile of woe, back to being totally fine. It is exhausting.

Hope your scan helps! so exciting that it is next week!

ROLL CALL!

WEEKS: Just under six weeks! I can’t believe my first trimester is already almost half over. Oh my god.

DUE DATE: Early August! The third or fourth, most probably.

CYCLES TRYING: None at all. My Fiance and I were planning to try after the wedding. Little bean was a complete accident. A happy one, though!

FIRST BFP: I found out last Friday! At four weeks. I haven’t actually taken a pregnancy test, though. There’s a blood drive at my school coming up, so I thought I’d get tested beforehand, just in case. And surprise! Guess I can’t donate, now. 

TOLD: My sister! She’s an OBGYN resident, so she was the first one I told. I definitely wanted her to know. My mother, after, who kept alternating between happy bawling and berating me for getting pregnant out of wedlock. And then my Future Brother-In-Law accidentally found out. I’m just hoping he can keep it a secret! He’s really excited to be an uncle. It’s adorable, bless him, but nerve racking 

ANNOUNCEMENT: I’m going to wait until I’m twelve weeks to announce to everyone, just to be safe! So not until next year. Of course, if my Fiance wants to tell a few people beforehand, that’s alright with me. 

PARTNER: I haven’t told my Fiance yet, actually! I will on Christmas. I’m putting a little gift basket together to tell him. Ultrasound, coffee, a couple books, onesie, stuff like that. I’m also considering one of those teddy bears that you can record the fetus’s heartbeat on, and squeeze to replay!

SYMPTOMS: Yes, ugh! Soreness, mostly, and I’m so tired. I started morning sickness at around four am this morning, which was really fun. I am so not looking forward to weeks of this. And I’ve really been craving hot chocolate, but that might not be a pregnancy thing. 

EXCITED FOR: Ooh, everything! The ultrasound, definitely. Hearing the heartbeat. And I am really excited for decorating the nursery! I already have plans.

FIRST APPOINTMENT: This afternoon! I’m going in for an early ultrasound, since my family has a history of twins, and my doctor suggested I check, just in case. 

GENDER: Team Green, most probably, but it really doesn’t make a difference to me either way. I’ll let my Fiance decide.

forestsandsands :  Thank you im sorry you have similar struggles. These hormones make it rough! I like what you said and I’m really going try and not google anymore. I do feel like my mind is definitely on overdrive! I want to enjoy this so badly! Its so hard not to over analyze every change that’s happening. If I have too many symptoms I get upset, if I have too few one day, I get upset. I do tell myself everyday that whatever will happen, will happen and worrying does absolutely nothing to change the outcome, so what’s the point! 

I’ve never been a c’est la vie type person but I’m trying πŸ™‚ 

You are also so right about being in control. I always forget I have control issues haha and I’m sure that’s a major reason why I’m feeling this way. That made me kind of snap out of it…for a bit πŸ™‚
