So I’ve gone back and forth on starting this board, because it seems like, I don’t know, tempting fate? But we aren’t really telling people yet (we just told parents yesterday) and all the worrying is driving me crazy, so I figured maybe we could all worry together? I don’t know if that will reduce or increase the worry, haha. Plus I’m off work all week for spring break and could use the company 🙂
Anyway, let’s introduce ourselves and stress out together!
How far along?:
How long TTC:
Any feeling about boy/girl:

And I’ll start!
EDD: Well, getting a variety of info. Sometime between 11/28 and 12/5. I’m going with 12/2 until otherwise notified.
How far along?: One of the biggest surprises was the “freebie” two weeks you get to count, so including those, today is Week 6 (I think, not going to lie, still confused…)
How long TTC: Two months
First child?: Yep!
Any feeling about boy/girl: I’ve got none. Darling Husband had a dream it was a girl, but I haven’t felt one way or the other.
First doctor’s appointment: 4/19 (it was 4/30, but Darling Husband called to get it pushed up, haha.)
How do you feel?/Symptoms so far: I’ve had some abdominal pains, particularly on my right side. I’ve also been a bit tired (although not like I expected), and I’ve been sick with a cough that won’t go away and wakes me up at night.
Who have you told? Parents, my work colleague (I need some safety things in place), and one friend who lives far away 🙂

OMG A DECEMEBER THREAD! CONGRATS LADIES! I am visiting from the Oct thread. I am so glad our pregnancy group is growing. I can’t wait to share bump pics:)))
Post # 5
May I join? I have been lurking these boards a lot lately, and would love to be able to chat with others about everything. Thanks for starting it!!
How far along?: 4 weeks + 1 today
How long TTC: Just this past month.
First child?: Yep!
Any feeling about boy/girl: I think it is a girl, Darling Husband wants a boy but won’t say what he thinks it is (he is afraid of getting a daughter).
First doctor’s appointment: 5/3
How do you feel?/Symptoms so far: I am feeling ok for the most part. I just knew I was pregnant before my BFP as I was super dizzy/light headed one day and had some abdominal cramping and nausea. The dizziness has since subsided, along with the nausea for the most part, but I do still get a little crampy in the evenings. Otherwise, I am constantly thirsty (which was not something I expected).
Who have you told?: My sister and a few close friends I see daily at work and go out with often. I live pretty far from my parents (as well as his parents), so I wanted to wait a little longer to tell them, just in case.

Congratulations! I’d love to join in as well.
How far along?: 4 weeks
How long TTC: 2 cycles
First child?: Yes
Any feeling about boy/girl: I’ve had dreams in the past that our first child is a girl, but who knows.
First doctor’s appointment: TBA
How do you feel?/Symptoms so far: So far I feel fine. I’ve just had some mild cramping and taking a lot of pee breaks.
Who have you told?: Only my Darling Husband. We’re going to figure out this week if we’re going to tell our parents soon, or keep it a secret for awhile.

EDD: December 9th!
How far along?: 4 weeks 1 day. Feels like longer bc I’ve known for almost a week!
How long TTC: 9 months total…We got pregnant on month 7 (Jan) for the first time ever, but I lost it at 4wks4d, and then got pregnant again in Feb, month 8, but also immediately lost that one. I got my first positve last week at 10dpo (but some suspicious lines at 9dpo), but I was scared of losing another one, so I didn’t test again until this morning so I could give it time to “go away” if it was going to. Still here! So I’m going to just be happy and grateful. I am pregnant TODAY, and am so excited about having the BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT IMAGINEABLE!!!!
First child?: Yes!
Any feeling about boy/girl: I don’t give a flip either way! But my husband and I have both had dreams that we have a boy first, so my gut instinct says Boy, but I would honestly be just as ecstatic about a girl!
First doctor’s appointment: I need to call:) Hopefully I can get in early since I have had prior losses.
How do you feel?/Symptoms so far: My tummy has been super bloated and has had a tight/pressure feeling. I’m guessing that’s stuff stretching out? I’m not worrying about the tightness. It’s nothing I’ve felt before. I know what M/C cramps feel like, and it’s not this, so I’m just going to keep calm and carry on! I also have had HUGE boobs, sore nips, have had to nap just about every day since 10dpo. Oh and peeing alot, and very thirsty:)
Who have you told?: My husband, my mom, my best friend, and the bee:) I was an avid member of the 6 months and up club these past few months, and I announced on there this morning:) I had also told some of my very close friends from the Bee when I got the first positive last week and they really helped me get through the sheer terror of worrying about if this one would stick around:)
ETA: The longest I was ever pregnant was 3 days after a positive pregnancy test. So even though I’m only 4wks1d now, I’ve still been pg for a longer time! Just in case anyone was wondering why I’m so excited:) I got those suspicious faint lines last Tues at 9dpo, so I’ve almost been pregnant a week after a BFP!

Congratulations!!!! It’s so exciting to hear that it feels like it’s going better for you this time. Fingers crossed that we all have super sticky little ones.
Post # 12
Do you know what day you ovulated? Or the first day of your last AF? Or when AF was due? Just trying to help you figure out how many weeks you are:)
Post # 13
Thank you! Congratulations to you too!
Post # 14
hi all! add me to the list 🙂 i’m excited we have a december 2012 board now!
EDD: December 1st
How far along?: 5 weeks, 1 day
How long TTC: We were planning to start trying next month. Oops.
First child?: Yep!
Any feeling about boy/girl: I’d be happy with either, but I’m hoping for a girl and my husband is hoping for a boy. I can’t wait to find out!
First doctor’s appointment: Haven’t scheduled it yet, but it’s on the to-do list.
How do you feel?/Symptoms so far: Always tired and always hungry. Mild cramping, but nothing crazy. Also, I’ve had a stuffy/runny nose since about a week before I found out. After some googling, I found out this won’t go away until after I give birth…fun.
Who have you told?: Just two of my close friends from my college days. We’re planning on telling both sets of parents this week. For some reason, I feel like a teenager though – like they’re going to be mad. Haha.. even though I’m 28 and my husband is 30 and we’ve been married for a year and a half. That’s weird…

I know all of those things, but between “What to expect” website and fertility friend’s pregnancy site, I get different info. I ovulated on Sunday, March 11th, so yesterday was three weeks with a fetus, plus the two freebie, so I guess 5 weeks, 1 day?
Post # 16
I know I’m getting way ahead of myself, but I’m testing later this week and I really, really hope I can join this thread!
I feel the same way! I want to tell my parents this weekend if I get my BFP, but I’m pretty nervous about it even though I know they’ll be really happy and excited. I guess it’s hard to get over that terror of having to tell them when you’re really young, haha.
