How far along are you? 4 weeks
What’s your estimated due date: Aug 27th (I think)
How many cycles trying? This was cycle 12 of officially trying, with many more NPNT before that.
When did you get your BFP? This morning!
Post a picture of your first BFP if you want! Maybe another time haha
Who have you told? Darling Husband and he couldn’t wait to tell his sister.
When do you plan on telling more people? Getting bloodwork today or tomorrow and then we’ll tell his parents this weekend (only time we’ll see them around the holidays because we’re traveling to visit them) and we’ll tell my parents and sister on Christmas morning. Everyone else not until 12 weeks/okay from the dr. I’m even nervous about telling this many people because I have PCOS and am very anxious about anything happening, but I’m also terrible at keeping secrets. And I’m very involved in craft beer so it’s going to be fairly obvious to people when I’m not drinking.
How did you tell your partner? It’s his birthday today so I included it with his gift–a gift certificate for a massage that said “you’re going to need this…”, a Christmas Ornament that says “Dad Est. 2016” and the digital test. He freaked out (in a good way) and I wish I had thought to record it.
Any symptoms yet? I don’t think so–none out of the ordinary anyway. I thought I was getting my period.
What are you most excited about/for? A happy and healthy 9 months. And sharing the good news with our family and friends.
When is your first appt? Tomorrow (it was already scheduled–seeing if they’ll take me in today)
For fun – Will you be finding out the gender or being team green? Definitely finding out. I like the idea of it being a surprise but I don’t think our planning tendencies would be able to handle not knowing haha.
August 2016 mom popping in to wish you all a happy and healthy 9 months! Enjoy pregnancy as much as you can! And just think, this time next year, you’ll have 4-month-olds getting ready to experience their first holidays (like our little team green turned pink)!
How far along are you? 4w3d
What’s your estimated due date: August 22nd
How many cycles trying? We’ve been trying since August but this was only our second IUI, our fertility clinic kept missing my O
When did you get your BFP? Saturday
Post a picture of your first BFP if you want!
Who have you told? Family, close friends, because we were doing fertility treatments our friends and families all knew we were trying and exactly when we would be testing.
When do you plan on telling more people? Probably 12 weeks
How did you tell your partner? She told me! I POAS’d and left it in the bathroom and told her to go check and she came running out saying “You’re pregnant!!!!”
Any symptoms yet? Super sore boobs!!!
What are you most excited about/for? Everything, the big belly, first ultra sound, becoming a mom!
When is your first appt? Not sure… I got my blood work back this morning and my beta was at 663, the nurse said it was nice and high so we wouldn’t need to do a repeat to check for doubling. She said the clinic will call and set up an U/S and a follow up with our RE
For fun – Will you be finding out the gender or being team green? Team green all the way!
I had my ultrasound and got my HCG test results. HCG a little over 76,000 and we got to see and hear the heartbeat at 139bpm. I shed a few tears of releif! I am measuring 6weeks 6days so only 2 days less than what my last lmp date was. My uterus is not retroverted its just straight up and down and I have a fibroid but luckily its in a place that wont hinder anything.
Theres going to be so many ups and downs and my goal is to remain positive and to stop googling, although I googled the heck out of fibroids haha.
mrscali13 : OMG she is adorable!!!!!! Thanks maam! It’s hard to believe this time next year we will all have 4 month olds!!
I had my first appt on Tuesday. According to when I ovulated (I ovulate a week later then the “average”), I was 5w3d at my appt, but it was measuring 4w5d. Doctor said that’s nothing to worry about and perfectly normal, esp this early on. But since the US was so early, it was too early to see a fetal pole. But there was a sac and a yolk, and my doctor didn’t seem worried at all. I have another US scheduled for 12/27. She also did a pap smear that day, and I bled sooo much that afternoon. Then it stopped, but I started bleeding a little again the next afternoon. Can we say freak out?! My husband said we made it a whole 24 hours before having to call the after hours nurse! haha. But they said that’s normal and it can take up to 72 hours for the bleeding to stop. They didn’t order any Betas, but just did a prenatal blood workup.
I need to check in here more!!
I went for a follow up from the bladder infection (which I asked about, and apparently I was supposed to have a follow up but didn’t know). I still have an infection, so once the lab runs everything, she will know what I can have for meds that are safe. Since I did have a miscarriage, she wants me to go in for bloodwork. I did that yesterday and will again on Monday the levels are fine, and I may get an ultrasound before our 8week appointment. I’m hoping we can, but I don’t know how certain that is.
I go in on Monday for bloodwork again to see what the levels are doing. This one is 705, which is something she expects to see. My progesterone level is 17.1. She does not have my urine results back, so hopefully she will on Monday after I get this bloodwork done.We’ll schedule a dating ultrasound after that since I could have ovulated later.
Kind of quiet around here! Has everyone joined the secret facebook group? How is everyone feeling this weekend?
jbbird : who should I msg about joining the fb group?
I’m 4 weeks 3 days and so far I’ve been light headed (mostly at work in the mornings.. I have a very physical job), more thirsty and super hungry even in the middle of the night! No fatigue and my boobs don’t really hurt too bad but they feel tingly.
cupcake8927 : I’m 4wk 3d too! I’ve been more hungry (for carbs) and thirsty too. Boobs aren’t sore yet, but I’m breastfeeding so not sure how that will change this time around. I think my boobs were already tender by this time when I was pregnant with my son. You can messge me your email address and I’ll try to invite you to the FB group!
