    What is your estimated due date? 8/2

    What baby # is this? 3! I have a 3 year old and 16 month old 

    How many cycles trying? 1

    When did you get your BFP? Super squinter on Thanksgiving day at 9 dpo

    Who have you told? A few friends 

    When do you plan on telling more people? Hoping to tell our families on Christmas Eve/Christmas Day unless my symptoms get obvious before then 

    How did you tell your partner? I made a scavenger hunt for my son and left some Christmas books at the end. I had also written a card to my husband with the news! He helped my son with the scavenger hunt and found his card at the end too. 

    Any symptoms yet? Not really, a bit of bloating 

    What are you most excited about? Feeling the baby moving in my belly (the best!), newborn snuggles (ok actually this is the best!)

    When is your first appt? 1/7

    Are you planning on finding out the baby’s gender? Not this time! We found out with our first two, but since we have a boy and a girl we want to be surprised this time 

    What part of the world are you living in? Texas 

    How long will you get to stay at home (SAHM, Mat leave, etc.)? I work part-time, but I’ll take 12-ish weeks off after the baby is born 

     

    Excited to meet everyone!

    ROLL CALL:

    How far along are you?  4w3d or so

    What is your estimated due date? 8/5 by conception date, 7/31 by last period

    What baby # is this? 3 (!) we have a 2.5 yr old and a 12 month old. I’m scared.

    How many cycles trying? Well, we weren’t really trying….lol. I’m still coming to terms with it/freaking out a little since we weren’t planning to ttc for #3 for another year.

    When did you get your BFP? 11/25, the Sunday after being out of town for Thanksgiving (where we told everyone we wouldn’t be having another kid for awhile! Haha)

    Anything different you tried the cycle you got a BFP? N/A

    Who have you told? My husband and parents

    When do you plan on telling more people? We’ll tell immediate family around 8 wks at Christmas. Friends at 12 wks. Social media….maybe 20-24?

    How did you tell your partner? I called him into the bathroom- he knew something was up since my voice was a bit shrill/frantic

    Any symptoms yet? Lots of gas! Lol, that was my indication I needed to test. And my sinuses have started up, per usual!

    What are you most excited about? The baby kicks and the whole labor/delivery process. I love those first hours with the new baby and all the excitement of delivery. And seeing my other two munchkins hold the baby!

    When is your first appt? 12/13 since my dr will be traveling for Christmas. Hoping to get it pushed to the next week though since I’ll only be a little over 6 weeks then.

    Are you planning on finding out the baby’s gender? Team green this time! We found out for our daughter and son so feel we’re prepared for either!

    What part of the world are you living in? Southern California 

    How long will you get to stay at home (SAHM, Mat leave, etc.)? About 8 weeks. I’ll then work from home full time with the baby until it impacts my productivity, which is when we’ll start daycare.

    How did you tell your partner? I had planned to do something cute but I couldn’t think of anything that wouldn’t require a lot of effort with everything being closed on Thanksgiving so I just showed him the test

    ROLL CALL:

    How far along are you?  4 weeks 6 days.

    What is your estimated due date? 3 Aug 2019. 

    What baby # is this? 1

    How many cycles trying?  1 – we were going to start trying in December so that I would be at my new job for a full year before having to take leave, but I got nervous that it would take a long time… Nope. We got really, really lucky. My husband says that this confirms everything his junior high sex-ed class taught him!

    When did you get your BFP? 12 DPO. I didn’t feel pregnant at all but wanted to test before a Christmas party.

    Anything different you tried the cycle you got a BFP? First cycle!

    Who have you told?  Just my husband and our parents.

    When do you plan on telling more people?  Immediate families and my best friend at Christmas (she lives out of town so this will be the only chance to tell her in person). Close friends around New Years, everyone else mid-January.  

    How did you tell your partner? “Holy shit, Darling Husband, look at this!!!!!!!!!!!!!” as I come running from the bathroom with the test.

    Any symptoms yet?  I’m tired earlier than usual and am having really vivid dreams. Otherwise I feel fine to the point where I’m worried that I’m not actually pregnant.  

    What are you most excited about? It’s still a bit surreal. I’ve been ready to start a family for a while but our circumstances have never been stable enough. We’re excited for everything. My husband wasn’t sure he wanted kids at all when we started dating, so to hear him tell me how excited and happy he is is pretty awesome too.

    When is your first appt?  18 December.

    Are you planning on finding out the baby’s gender?  Yes.

    What part of the world are you living in? Canada.

    How long will you get to stay at home (SAHM, Mat leave, etc.)? I technically have up to 18 months off, but my leave isn’t topped up by my employer so I’d only get the employment insurance. My husband’s parental leave is topped up, so we will probably split 12 months 50/50 to ease the financial burden and give him bonding time with the baby.

    I think I accidentally deleted my post when I tried to fix my spelling…. Lesson learned! 

     

    ROLL CALL:

     

    How far along are you?  4 weeks 6 days.

    What is your estimated due date? 3 August.

    What baby # is this? 1

    How many cycles trying? First! We were going to start trying in December so that I could be at my new job a full year before needing to take a leave, but I got nervous that we would be slow to conceive. Instead we got really lucky and confirmed everything that my husband’s junior high sex-ed class taught him about it only taking once!

    When did you get your BFP? 12 DPO, 22 Nov. 

    Anything different you tried the cycle you got a BFP? Like PP, stopped preventing!

    Who have you told? Just my husband and our parents, who have all said that they’re having a hard time keeping the secret. 

    When do you plan on telling more people? We will tell immediate family and my best friend (who lives out of town) at Christmas, in person. Close friends as we see them after New Years, and work in mid-January.

    How did you tell your partner? “Holy shit Darling Husband, look at this!!!!!!” with the test in hand as I came running from the washroom. I didn’t think I was pregnant but he claims he had a feeling.

    Any symptoms yet? Not really. I’m tired earlier than usual and am having really vivid dreams, but otherwise feel fine and am slightly anxious about not actually being pregnant/miscarrying.

    What are you most excited about? Everything! Especially since my husband wasn’t sure if he wanted kids when we first started dating. Seeing his excitement and happiness now is so special.

    Are you planning on finding out the baby’s gender? Yes. I was on the fence but he really wants to.

    What part of the world are you living in? Canada.

    How long will you get to stay at home (SAHM, Mat leave, etc.)? We will probably split 12 months of parental leave 50/50. His employer tops up his salary, so it makes sense financially for him to take some time, plus my friends who had dads spend time at home with them when they were little all say that they are so glad to have had that time.

    Bees is anyone else spotting??  I have been for about 5days.  Mostly dark brown and very light, but this morning it was more of a burnt reddish color which concerned me.  Still light.   I may call the doc on mon to chat.
