How far along are you? 5w4d
What is your estimated due date? July 29th as of now, but that may change once I have my ultrasound.
What baby # is this? 1!
How many cycles trying? 4th cycle got a BFP
When did you get your BFP? Sunday before Thanksgiving, 10 DPO
Anything different you tried the cycle you got a BFP? I used the Ava bracelet the month I got a BFP, but I think it was me taking an OPK while at work (10 am) and got a BLAZING positive when I think I had been missing my peak previously testing at 6 am and 6 pm.
Who have you told? My parents, husband’s step-mom and mom and sister. My two best friends.
When do you plan on telling more people? New Year’s dinner with husband’s extended family, and early January for my extended family when I am visiting them. We won’t be telling the world until the baby is born.
How did you tell your partner? Came back to bed after taking an HPT at 6 am on Sunday. and laid there for an hour or so. When he started moving around I asked “are you awake?” he said “why are you awake, its 7 am,” I said, “I think I’m pregnant”. He asked why I thought that and I told him “I took a test”. I then showed him a vvvvvvvery faint pink line and he was like “IDK babe”. So then I showed him a Clear Blue Digital saying PREGNANT. He went from barely awake to woke AF.
Any symptoms yet? Extreme hunger, extreme sleepiness, constantly hard nipples, and if I don’t eat every few hours I am getting nauseous.
What are you most excited about? OMG having this baby in my arms and loving it so much. And just getting to see who they become in life.
When is your first appt? December 27th. I’ll be in my 9th week and get an ultrasound and get a proper due date.
Are you planning on finding out the baby’s gender? Yes! I’m a planner by nature.
What part of the world are you living in? On the coast of California, United States.
How long will you get to stay at home (SAHM, Mat leave, etc.)? I’m a teacher and my district sucks so I will only get 6 weeks off (20 of those days will be paid at my normal salary, the rest will be differential pay). However, I will be taking Short Term Disability for an additional 10 weeks to bring me through to winter break and then start the second semester in January with the students. If I add in the time before school starts (two weeks) and the time during winter break (three weeks) I will have a total of 24 weeks with my baby before I have to go back.
