    ROLL CALL:

    How far along are you?  Not sure. I got my BFP pretty clear today after a few squinters the last few days. I am supposed to start my period on Tuesday or Wednesday I think, but I don’t track so no clue when I ovulated.

    What is your estimated due date? August 28th.

    What baby # is this? 3

    How many cycles trying? We haven’t used any type of birth control in years so we woud just try to avoid the 2 weeks before my period. Well I got pregnant last month, but I lost the baby just a day after my period was supposed to start. So we tried a bit to time it this month.

    When did you get your BFP? Today! 

    Anything different you tried the cycle you got a BFP? It took us 6 months with Dear Daughter2 and I think it’s because I was so stressed with charting. We decided to just time it casually to avoid stress for a while and it seemed to work.

    Who have you told? Just Darling Husband and my June 2016 Group

    When do you plan on telling more people? Not sure. Maybe on Christmas.

    How did you tell your partner? I just walked down with the test and showed him. He knew we had timed things pretty well and I have had some serious symptoms, so it wasn’t a shock. 

    Any symptoms yet? Boobs are very sore and I have been going to bed around 7:30 the last week.

    What are you most excited about? I am most excited to thouroughly enjoy this pregnancy and new baby since I know it will be my last. I am also just excited this is happening, we have been going back and fourth about adding a third and I just wasn’t feeling quite complete.

    When is your first appt? No clue. I will call in the middle of next week once I miss a period. I was just in a few weeks ago to get a check up after my early MC last cycle.

    Are you planning on finding out the baby’s gender? For sure. We have 2 girls and to be honest, I want another girl even though I know Darling Husband wouldn’t mind a boy. I just love my girls and would love another one.

    What part of the world are you living in? New Hampshire, USA

    How long will you get to stay at home (SAHM, Mat leave, etc.)? This is a tricky one. I would normally not feel bad about taking the full 12 weeks offered here, but I am a teacher and also the head of my department. taking the first 3 months of school off might not be reasonable.

    How far along are you?  Probably like 3w5d

    What is your estimated due date? August 27, 2019

    What baby # is this? 1

    How many cycles trying? 4

    When did you get your BFP? I got faint lines on Friday and Saturday. I got a digital today and it was a clear positive. 

    Anything different you tried the cycle you got a BFP? We used OPKs and hit O-4, O-1, and O. 

    Who have you told? Telling my H as soon as he gets home. I wanted to wait until I had a clear positive. Told another board I am on and one of my friends. I will tell my BFF soon. 

    When do you plan on telling more people? Planning to tell our immediate families for Christmas. 

    How did you tell your partner? I have it wrapped in a box under the tree and bought a cute plush toy that I will tie to my dog to lead him to the box. 

    Any symptoms yet? Maybe? Boobs are kind of sore. Excessive hunger! I can’t stop eating. Frequent peeing (already?!). Even more of a sense of smell and some light nausea. I feel kind of crampy and like a full feeling?

    What are you most excited about? I cannot believe I am pregnant. I am so excited about everything and that we’re having a baby! My dog is going to be the best big brother ever. 

    When is your first appt? No idea. I just moved to a completely new country and continent. I don’t even have a doctor here as yet. I reached out to some midwives to get an appointment ASAP but they’re closed on the weekends. With Christmas next week, I am hoping I can get something scheduled ASAP since I am going to China on Jan 2 and South Africa on Jan 19 and a bit concerned. 

    Are you planning on finding out the baby’s gender? Absolutely! I am a planner. 

    What part of the world are you living in? Amsterdam in the Netherlands! I am originally from Toronto. 

    How long will you get to stay at home (SAHM, Mat leave, etc.)? I am currently doing my MBA so no job…lol. But maternity leave here is 16 weeks.
