Ooh me me!
How far along are you? 3w5d
Estimated due date? Dec 7
What # baby is this for you? 1
How many cycles trying? 8
When did you get your BFP? 9DPO
Who have you told? My husband of course, and my best friend.
When do you plan to tell other people? I will tell my family after I see a heartbeat, and my husband’s family after all the screenings are complete. Hub and I have decided we will likely terminate a chromosomally abnormal baby, and mom used to be a special ed teacher so I know she will understand. Hub’s family, on the other hand, is religious and neither of us want to know how they would react to a decision like that, and we’d rather not find out.
When do you plan to tell other people? You mean Facebook? Probably after we tell my husband’s family. I’m going to post a link to that Garfunkel and Oates song Pregnant Women Are Smug, and comment “yep, we sure are! GET IT EVERYONE?!”. J/k… but seriously that song is so effing true, so maybe not j/k.
How did you tell your partner? I just showed him the FRER. We’ve been through a CP and a new diagnosis of low ovarian reserve – I had an app with an RE scheduled before I found out I’m pregnant. We’ve been through too much for me to be coy or cute about it!
Any symptoms? My boobs are heavy, and my lower abdomen feels… tight? Heavy? Not quite crampy, but different. That’s about it.
What are you most excited about? All the markers of fetal health, basically. I can’t wait to see the heartbeat, and know this is a real baby and not just a yolk sac. I can’t wait to feel the baby move. It’s very hard to feel excited when there’s so much unsurety still.
When is your first appointment? First ultrasound will be around April 20.
Are you planning to find out the gender? Yes, but we’re going to keep it a secret until the baby is born!
