koiocha :  I’ve been a stalker and following your story (so ashamed, lol). But I feel like we’re TTC twinsies. I recall your post of TTC when hubby may not be so into BD often and felt like you were speaking of me. Looks like we both got our BFP the same day too, but expecting #1. My EDD is the 23rd, but guess that could change when I have my first appt in about a month’s time. Congratulations again, very excited for you! Join our FB grp…pm me your email.

third time lucky embarassed

Poas board luker since late september when i stopped my pill after 17 years! Hubby and i wanted to start TTC in Jan after my overseas Xmas Trip but here i am. in shock but also very excited and anxious 🙁 . i want to join the group to get support, doesn’t help that i am over 16,000 km away from hubby when i got my BFP.

 

roll call

 

How far along are you? 6 weeks 5 days

What is your estimated due date? 17th August

What baby # is this? 1

How many cycles trying? None. We did BD once that week after a couple of bottles of wine (stress at work) and did not prevent as i thought my FW finished. Probably felt adventours not preventing just in case after the wine lol

When did you get your BFP? 20th Dec. I wasnt sure if I was late or not. I had been on the pill for so long and thought my cycle is just longer this month due to heavy stress at work. The only reason why i tested was the pulling in my lower abdomen, i actually thought i have a overian cysts. I did drink on the heavy side before my bfp so i felt really bad first two days. Called the gyno for an appointment and she told me not to worry cry

Who have you told? Too many for my liking 🙁 Hubby of course, parents, sister and 4 very clos#e friends. I am currently visiting family overseas and I had to stop drinking and social smoking right away and it would have been waaaay to obvious why. I did try the ‘i am tired and hangover from last night thing’ but it didnt fly with one of my friendtongue-out. I do love my wine, i think its obvious.

When do you plan telling more people? 13-14 weeks along, so mid Feb

How did you tell your partner? I whatsapped him my BFP at 6.30 am my time. He thought i was a joke and didnt believe me at first. Not very romantic but i was in such a shock. From overian cysts to being pregant lol

Any symptoms yet? Gas, bloated and lower back pain. Still the random pulling in the lower abdomen but not often. constipation at first but thats finally over lol tmi. started to get a little queasy after at 6 weeks. lost my sweet tooth! 

What are you most excited about? reach the end of first trimester, the bump, being a mother. Seeing my hubby being a dad, we have been together for 10 1/2 years and he wanted to have kids last 2-3 years, i just wasnt ‘ready’. I blame the pill for this too.. 

When is your first appointment? 7 weeks scan on Dec,29th in Germany. I just need piece of mind before flying home to Australia a few days later. yyiiiikes, i hope i won’t puke on the 24 hour flight!

Are you planning on finding out the babys gender? Hell yes! Have a feeling it will be a boy.

Hello Ladies! I thought I would see about joining this group since my predicted due date is the end of July and my hubby just told me that he was almost 4 weeks late when he was born, I was 2 weeks late so I am now wondering if little one will follow in out footsteps and incubate longer than predicted. Can someone add me to the Facebook group? email is [email protected] 

How far along are you? 10wks 5 days 

What is your estimated due date? 7/28/17 but I just found out that Darling Husband was almost a full 4 weeks late! 

What baby # is this? 1st

How many cycles trying? 11 cycles

When did you get your BFP? 11/13/17 (on my 33rd birthday, 2 weeks after ovulation)

Who have you told? Everyone! We announced Christmas day since it had snowed and made for a great photo op

When do you plan on telling more people?

How did you tell your partner? I bought balloons that spelled out BABY and called him into the bedroom for the surprise 

Any symptoms yet? Brushing my teeth is the hardest part of the day, I do get a very very small bit of nausea but drink a sprite and feel fine. I do also have a bit of round ligament pain if i move too quickly 

What are you most excited about? Getting a bigger baby bump! 

When is your first appointment? It was 12/9/17, my next appointment is 1/4/18 since there wasn’t much to see the first time my doctor is very wonderful and letting me have two during my first trimester

Are you planning on finding out the baby’s gender? Yes! As soon as we can and we do not plan on having a gender reveal party, we figured a co-ed baby shower would be the best course of action for us (as far as party planning)
