third time lucky
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.
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
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 friend. 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.
