amrx2015 :  Hey maam! I’m loving it as well! Can’t help but be scared at the tiniest things though.  I have a feeling it’s a girl for us! Mainly because the day we found out, one of my best friends committed suicide, so in my heart, it’s only fitting that one of my favorite girls left the world on the same day another one was put into my world.

banchibg :  I’m sorry it’s been rough so far.  I’ve been super nauseaus and dying of hunger as well, but also hard to make myself eat.  I haven’t had any pink spotting, but yesterday I had a tiny bit of brown mucus when I wiped and it freaked me out (still freaking out lol).

forestsandsands :  That’s all great advice! Google really can be a pregnant woman’s worst enemy.

I don’t know how people keep this news in for 13 weeks.  I’m only 5 weeks along and bursting at the seems to tell everyone! It’s hard because we are living with my inlaws right now (our house flooded in August), and they are always asking if I want wine or beer.  Every night I would have a glass of wine with them.  I need to go buy some fake wine just to throw them off! I’ve told my boss and 3 good friends so far.  We are telling our immediate families Christmas day, and I plan on telling the rest of my best friends on New Years.  I think  I might get a shirt that says “Bump’s first New Years” and just walk around in it until people realize what it says!

ROLL CALL:

How far along are you?

It’s unclear. Normally my cycles are 34-40 days, but I got my bfp around my ovulation day. I am either 3 weeks or 6 weeks pregnant at this point. 

 

What’s your estimated due date:

August 22nd, if I got preggo this cycle.

How many cycles trying?

2

When did you get your BFP?

I got my very strong and extremely dark BFP on CD 26, which is around my ovulation day. We only BDed around CD 13-16, so maybe for some reason I ovulated very, very early this cycle, and I’m ~10 dpo?

The reason I took the test was I got so nauseous that I vomited the night before. My husband said maybe you’re pregnant and we laughed. That happened when I was 6 weeks pregnant with my previous pregnancies, which makes me think what I thought was my period may have been implantation bleeding.

Post a picture of your first BFP if you want! 

Who have you told?

My husband, my mom, and 2 close friends.

When do you plan on telling more people?

Close family after seeing the heartbeat around 10 weeks, but everyone else at 20 weeks.

How did you tell your partner?

I walked in to the living room with my stick and I said, you were right! I am totally pregnant!

Any symptoms yet?

 

Tons of symptoms. That’s why I took the test. Strong morning sickness. Aversion to food. Sensivite breasts. Pregnancy brain.

What are you most excited about/for?

For my daughter to have a sibling. To hold a newborn again on my skin. <3 

When is your first appt?

I’m going for a blood test tomorrow.

For fun – Will you be finding out the gender or being team green?

I will be finding out the gender. I found out with the nub method last time at 13 weeks.

natbrown0703 :  thank you! I’m feeling better mainly because I had my first OB appointment. 

After the internal exam my NP decided to order an asap viability scan. Her reasoning were the spotting and I have a retroverted uterus so she was unable to palpate my uterus.  

I’m still having spotting and from what I saw she wrote that my uterus felt like 4 weeks instead of almost 7 weeks.  

At least I’ll know by the end of the week what’s going on. I had scheduled a private scan but im glad that I get one at the OB.

banchibg :  Were you tracking your ovulation? Is 7 weeks based on your last period? 

I spotted many times in my first pregnancy early on. They can also be off with timing early on. When is your scan? I hope things are okay, fingers crossed for you.

my nauseau is getting crazy. I couldn’t walk by our kitchen this morning. I can’t believe I’m only 3 weeks pregnant. I’m starting to believe more and more that maybe I’m six weeks and I got pregnant last cycle. 

anyone else with nauseau? how many weeks are you pregnant?

asphodel :  well my first positive was 11/20 although very faint. That was 3 weeks and 2 days ago. 

Based on how long sperm survive the absolute latest I could have ovulated would be November 16th, that would put me at 5 weeks 6 days but I really doubt that I ovulated that late. I had very obvious fertile mucous on November 9th and 10th and then it was gone on the 11th and thereafter. 

My scan is on Thursday.
