Hi everyone! So happy to join you all!

How old are you and partner (if you want to share)? 31, 28

How far along are you? 4w 3d

Estimated Due Date? August 7th to 10th depending on the calculator I choose

What baby # is this? 1

How many cycles trying? 4 but it was really 3rd time lucky because I didn’t ovulate on my first cycle off the pill. 

When did you get your BFP? I was convinced I saw a faint line on at 9DPO but my husband couldn’t see anything. He said maybe to the faint line on 10DPO and 11DPO. Turns out I had terrible cheapies because I used a Clearblue test on 12DPO and it was super obvious. So we celebrated on 12DPO. 

Who have you told? I told one person in work and hubs told his close friends last night.

When do you plan to tell other people? I might tell my sister when I see her tomorrow, but we have planned Christmas reveals for both of our close families. 

How did you tell your partner? I usually take the test first thing when I get up, set the timer and take the test back into our bedroom for us to look together. This time I ran back into our bedroom, thrust the test in front of his face and said “I was only setting the timer on my phone and the line came up clear as day already!”. Then I grabbed a digital test to do and that showed positive too.

Any symptoms? I’m so tired! My husband commented last night that I’ve napped more in the last week than in the last few years. I hate to nap usually! Also have sore boobs and the occasional nausea. I’m also crying at everything! 

What are you most excited about? Telling our families at Christmas and growing a bump!

When is your first appointment? The 11th. 

Are you planning on finding out the sex? Hubs has always said he doesn’t want to and I always wanted to, but I’m slowly coming around to the idea of Team Green.

Estimated Due Date? August 8 2020

What baby # is this? First!!

How many cycles trying? 4

When did you get your BFP? November 27

Who have you told? Just my husband at this point. We probably won’t share for a while as once we tell my mom the entire family will know, and I’m not ready for that yet!

When do you plan to tell other people?  My birthday is in mid-January when I’ll be about 11 weeks, so we’ll probably tell parents and siblings then. Close friends will find out soon after. 

How did you tell your partner? I took a test on Wednesday morning and it was positive. I finished work early so I ran to the store and bought a card, pregnancy book, and a baby outfit and put them in a bag for my husband when he got home from work. I attached the pregnancy test to the inside of the card. 

Any symptoms? A little crampy off and on. I also think my sense of smell is stronger.

What are you most excited about? Having a bump and then a snuggly baby!

When is your first appointment? January 6

Are you planning on finding out the sex? Yes, and I can’t wait!!
