    Was going to wait to do this until I had my a blood test but my OB apparently doesn’t do them until 7 weeks. Anyone know if this is normal?

    What baby # is this? 1

    How many cycles trying? 3 NTNP and 1 actually trying

    Anything different you tried the cycle you got a BFP? We actually planned out when we would BD.

    Who have you told? Just my husband

    When do you plan on telling more people? Hopefully after my appointment with my OB on 1/14. Husband doesn’t want to tell anyone before an ultrasound.

    How did you tell your partner? I just gave him a big hug and told him it was positive. 

    Any symptoms yet? Fatigue, nausea, Can’t stand to eat meat

    What are you most excited about? Having a little one to raise that’s a part of each of us.

    How long will you get to stay at home (SAHM, Mat leave, etc.)? I have a guaranteed 3 months from my job but it’s only part time so I will be home with the little one part of the week after that.

    When do you plan on telling more people? Honestly, I’m just so overwhelmed right now! Anyone else have advice on when to tell?

    Didn’t expect to be posting on this board, but here I am!!

    ROLL CALL:

    How far along are you?  Not sure, I have been on the pill and my periods were coming in the middle of my packs! It has been a month and a half or so since I got it. My BFP was not crazy dark, though, so I think still 4-5 week range.

    What is your estimated due date? I guess it would put me near the very end of August?

    What baby # is this? #3, but our second was a miscarriage in August.

    How many cycles trying? None!!!! sealedsealed

    When did you get your BFP? Last night

    Anything different you tried the cycle you got a BFP? Nope

    Who have you told? Just my husband.

    When do you plan on telling more people? Last time we told a bunch of close friends right away, but this time we’ll probably be very cautious until 2nd tri.

    How did you tell your partner? LOL, I brought the test downstairs to him and was like “Totally thought this would be negative, but whoops!”

    Any symptoms yet? SO. TIRED. It was my first symptom both times before. I wasn’t concerned about missing my period because it’s been so wonky recently on the pill, but I just couldn’t explain why I was so doggone exhausted. That’s when I bought a test.

    What are you most excited about? Right now… getting past the 1st tri

    When is your first appt? Booked one this morning for January 7th!

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

    What part of the world are you living in? Mountains of Georgia

    How long will you get to stay at home (SAHM, Mat leave, etc.)? Probably only 6 weeks. So excited that DH’s company just instituted a new parent policy that will allow him to be off for a month at 75% pay though!!!

    How’s it going ladies? I’m only 4 weeks and 4 days and praying I can get safely to 12 weeks so I can feel a little less anxious. So far I have been experiencing heartburn every day, bloating, uterus pain(stretching), lower back pain occasionally, and fatigue some days but lately I have had a lot of energy. What symptoms have you ladies been experiencing lately?
