When do you plan to tell other people?  My parents and daycare director, later this week. Everyone else, as late as I can manage.

How did you tell your partner? He was worried we hadn’t had very good timing this month, so I just told him it turned out we had πŸ™‚ Our son is a little parrot right now, and I didn’t want to give him anything fun to repeat!

Any symptoms? Not really, which of course is freaking me out.

When is your first appointment? Probably at 8 weeks; I still need to call!

Are you planning to find out the gender? Yes.

Fun fact? I work in newborn screening, so it will be funny telling my coworkers I’m pregnant πŸ™‚

 

Gillian, could you add me to the FB group? I’m sure you can guess who I am; I just posted this in our 2016 group!

ROLL CALL!

How far along are you? 3 weeks, 4 days

Estimated due date? February 28th! 

What # baby is this for you? 2nd, my daughter was born October 8, 2016

How many cycles trying? We started casually trying when my daughter was 9 months old, but it took us around 2.5 years including 6 months of fertility treatments so we kind of knew we were headed back to the fertility specialist eventually. Started the same plan that resulted in our pregnancy last time & our very first IUI did the trick this time around!

When did you get your BFP? Late Saturday night. I snuck out early Sunday to get my daughter a best sister ever shirt to surprise my husband for Father’s Day!

Who have you told? Too many people! So many friends and family members knew I had my IUI on the 7th so they kept asking if it worked. So my family, my husbands family and 4 of my closest friends (2 who are also pregnant!)

When do you plan to tell other people? After graduating from the fertility specialist, so around 8-10 weeks. I won’t make a Facebook post or anything until 12+, but for friends and work that’s what I’m comfortable with.

How did you tell your partner? Fathers Day!

Any symptoms? Light pulling/cramping, peeing constantly, nauseous if I don’t eat something light every few hours.

What are you most excited about? Seeing my daughter become a big sister. She is the sweetest little girl & I know she’ll make an incredible sister.

When is your first appointment?  I go to have betas done tomorrow and Thursday. I should have an ultrasound  around 6 weeks and then again around 8. 

Are you planning to find out the gender? Yes! Found out at 16 weeks last time and will do the same this time.

Fun fact? My mom used to work for Katie Holmes’ dad and brother at a law firm in Toledo. Not as cool now as when I was a teenager and Dawsons Creek was big!

How many cycles trying? 1

When did you get your BFP? Jun 21

Who have you told? Telling close family today!

When do you plan to tell other people? 8w to 12w

How did you tell your partner? I was a week late, and nauseous, so it was a bit of a foregone conclusion. The test just confirmed it. 

Any symptoms? Nausea, bloating. 

What are you most excited about? Uhh, I’m nervous. Too early, and not the most reassuring history, so I want to contain my excitement. But I so look forward to my daughter being a big sister..

When is your first appointment? Working on it.

Are you planning to find out the gender? Yes, probably!

Fun fact? We were ready to start trying, but we probably would’ve waited another month. It happened when we went back for seconds, and got lazy about the condom. (NOT the story we will tell!)
