Who have you told? My husband, his cousin, and my best friend

When do you plan to tell other people? We are still trying to decide. Maybe my mom at Christmas, but his family we will likely wait til past 12 weeks.

How did you tell your partner? I walked up to my husband and said he jinxed us– I was convinced we didn’t have enough time together this month and he had said but yea, I bet it worked.

Any symptoms? I don’t think so, I work nights so its a little hard to tell. I’ve had trouble sleeping and I’ve been SO thirsty.

What are you most excited about? I’m not sure.. it took me awhile to be on the baby train so I feel like right now I’m just trying to be cautiously optimistic.

When is your first appointment? 12/30

Are you planning on finding out the sex? Maybe, undecided on this also.

Anything else? I JUST bought my tempdrop (and got the algorithm working to really hit it hard in December) and about 90 million LH and HCG test strips. Oh and a costco sized box of tampons. So that’s cool.

I’m so excited to be here!!

 

How old are you and partner? 32/33

How far along are you? 3w5d, I think! Crazy to know so early!

Estimated Due Date? 8/13/21

What baby # is this? This is my third, but my husband’s first.

How many cycles trying? Several NTNP, but first actively trying and with fertility treatment due to my long history of PCOS.

When did you get your BFP? So I started testing out my HCG trigger injection with daily cheapie tests… the line was fading consistently from 3 days after the trigger until 10 days after the trigger. It was almost gone by that point. On 11 days after the trigger (9 DPO) I noticed it appeared slightly darker and began to suspect… by 12 DPT/10 DPO I was pretty confident, but it wasn’t until today at 14 DPT/12 DPO that I was basically certain – now my line is as dark as it was 3 days after my trigger!

Who have you told? My husband and three of my closest friends know about my fertility treatment and that I may be pregnant. No one else is sure but me though! 🙂

When do you plan to tell other people? I’m telling my husband today after I get my bloodwork. My closest friends will know too. I think I’ll tell my parents at Christmas but I’m not sure I want my daughters to know until I have an ultrasound.

How did you tell your partner? I have a Christmas ornament and onesie for him. He’ll see them tonight!

Any symptoms? Yes, but I’m taking progesterone supplements and had the trigger shot, so I’ve kind of had symptoms all along. They do seem to be a little stronger already though. Mildly tender breasts and some occasional cramping.

What are you most excited about? This is my husband’s first baby, so I’m really excited to see him go through this process with me and become a father. He’s already a great father figure to my daughters, but going through it from the beginning will be all new for him!

When is your first appointment? I’m not sure when I’ll leave the fertility clinic for my OBGYN/midwife group. I’ll ask about that today. I have an appointment for bloodwork today though!

Are you planning on finding out the sex? Yes, we will do NIPT and find out at 10-12 weeks.

Anything else? I’m a student nurse midwife in the last part of my program! This pregnancy is going to be so different because of all that I know now… and also because I start clinical hours in January and will be seeing GYN and pregnant patients in an office setting and delivering babies in two hospitals!! I am so excited but also SO scared. I hope my pregnancy is healthy and easy (the last one certainly wasn’t easy, I had a lot of mobility issues due to a herniated disc and sciatica) and that I can smoothly complete my clinical hours and deliver the required 40+ babies before June or July. COVID certainly makes that a little scary – if cases keep rising, students like me may not have access to complete our hours… guess I’ll just be taking things one day at a time!
