Fun fact? jeez… not sure, my birthday is Feb 9 so there is a possibilty I could share my birthday with this little one
I’ll join in 🙂
NightOwl27 : that’s so funny! Sometimes the universe has other plans! I’m turning 40 this fall and work for a fertility clinic so my so called declining fertility was stressing me out- even waiting just another 3 months. Guess i didn’t have anything to worry about!
Twizbe : I wish I had the mental energy to be team green. I’m way to impulsive and need everything right now! Close together siblings were what i always imagined- hopefully they’ll be great friends!
So glad you’re both here! I had such a great experience with my last group and I visit with 2 of the girls regularly!
Unfortunately, I think I’m having a CP. My BFP has been getting fainter over the last 2 days and I’m not feeling very hopeful. Best of luck to you two. I hope you have healthy pregnancies 🙂
How far along are you? 4weeks plus whatever days
Estimated due date? February 2, 2019 (well range is January 29 to 12)
What # baby is this for you? 1
How many cycles trying? 1
When did you get your BFP? May 24
Who have you told? Husband, my sister who is also ttc, grandma, cousins, aunt, and my parents. We are telling Dh’s parents tonight and will tell the rest of the siblings at our party tomorrow.
When do you plan to tell other people? We’ll wait to tell friends, coworkers until after 12 weeks, probably, it’s hard to resist telling people. Originally we were going to wait until after our first appointment to tell anyone, but with my grandma in ICU, we decided to go ahead.
How did you tell your partner? Yeah, nothing special, basically I called him over to the bathroom and told him I thought we were pregnant after I took a test. He’s definitely been calling me a pee stick addict since then because I keep peeing on them. I guess I like seeing the progression.
Any symptoms? Tender breasts, tired, acne, no AF yesterday although I did get some brown spotting until the afternoon. Google it and it seems pretty normal, but I’ll call my ob Tuesday to ask what they think.
What are you most excited about? I’m so stoked to see what the progeny and me and Dh is like as people. Plus I’m looking forward to the cuddles before they get too old for that.
When is your first appointment? June 13
Are you planning to find out the gender? Yeah, asap lol
Fun fact? My mom had all her kids at home, so did my sister in law and I’m a pretty granola person, so if we aren’t too high a risk, I’d love to do the whole at home water birth thing. We are going to start touring hospitals anyway though.
anabolina : congratulations! I’m glad I’m not the only one who has told people. I feel a little silly but I’m the worst secret keeper. I hadn’t thought to keep peeing on sticks! I forgot how tenuous things feel in the beginning. Hoping for sticky babies for everyone!
NightOwl27 : I am sorry it was a CP for you. FC next time is a sticky one.
How is everyone? I am 4+5 today and the nausea has kicked in a bit. Been feeling pretty pants to be honest. I have been spotting a bit too – mostly pink / red. Not too concerned as I spotted on and off throughout the first trimester with my son too. I had a super positive test this morning and the symptoms are still here. If it is still happening next week I will go to the doctors and get a referral to the early pregnancy unit for a scan. They won’t scan until 6 weeks anyway so no point rushing.
I sent off my self refer to the midwives over the weekend too. It was a bank holiday here on Monday so it will be a while before I hear from them. I think last time I had my booking in at 9 weeks so assume it will be the same this time. We are on holiday when I will be 8 weeks anyway.
I can’t wait for our holiday. We are off to Rhodes which will be nice, though I think I will be feeling uber pants by then. Also stressing about a 4 hour flight with DS.
Not feeling work today at all. I have been working out when I can start maternity leave. At the moment I am thinking I will go at Christmas.
mamadingdong : Just saw your post about being team yellow. I loved it not knowing. The surprise really kept me going near the end when I was so uncomfortable. It was so fun doing all the predictions etc.
The main reason we were team yellow last time though was because we both really really wanted a boy. I think had we found out it was a girl at birth it wouldn’t have mattered, but if we found out before we would have both been disapointed. It was hard to articulate that while I was pregnant, but now DS is here I can say how much we wanted a boy.
This time I don’t mind at all if it is a boy or a girl. The main reason for not finding out is not seeing the point. Everything newborn we have is gender neutral, our nursery is gender neutral, there is no prep that is ‘helped’ by knowing.
How far along are you? 4 weeks exactly, so say the apps
Estimated due date? Feb. 6
What # baby is this for you? 1
How many cycles trying? Technically 2, I chickened out the first cycle we were going to be trying
When did you get your BFP? May 29
Who have you told? Just my husband
When do you plan to tell other people? Having a hard time with this one, husband wants to wait but I’m feeling like I might want to tell our immediate family members
How did you tell your partner? Haha I called and asked him to pick up an FRER, I had a faint line with a cheap dipstick and he was still on his way home.
Any symptoms? A little gentle cramping.
What are you most excited about? Just that it actually happened! I was feeling nervous, I have a few friends that have been trying longer, and at 31 I just wasn’t sure what to expect with my fertility.
When is your first appointment? Around 7 weeks, we’re going on a two-week trip later June/early July and I would like to have it before we leave.
Are you planning to find out the gender? Undecided, but definitely tempted to find out. It sounds bad, but I know I want a girl (after wanting a healthy baby of course), but I’ve had my heart set on it and I think knowing ahead of time will be helpful for me if we do end up having a (still precious and wanted!) boy.
Fun fact? Not so much fun as sweet, but over the holiday weekend several people noticed that my one dog was sticking super close by, and now with the BFP it’s pretty cute that my best buddy wants to make sure I’m alright.
Twizbe : I definitely understand how it could keep you going! What a wonderful surprise. I’m soooo impatient and impulsive I just know I couldn’t commit to it. Plus, when I was pregnant with my son, I felt this amazing connection click into place when I found out his gender. And while I thought I had no preference, it definitely took me a bit to adjust because I had always imagined having a girl. At this point, I truly have no preference and would be in a better state of mind to wait in that sense… BUT I NEED TO KNOW!
Isn’t it crazy how mother nature just really does what she’s supposed to sometimes??? I work for a fertility clinic so I absolutely understand the struggle and am amazed that any of us get it right on our own. And I love that your baby doggy is noticing the change already. Mine didn’t care the first time and now he’s pretty sick so he isn’t paying attention to much these days 🙁
Hi ladies! I’m looking forward to getting to know you all! Has there been a fb page made yet?
