Can’t believe I’m posting this…

How old are you and DH? 28/30

How far along are you? 10DPO today. 3+3 according to the internet but I didn’t ovulate until CD27 so can’t go by LMP. 

Estimated Due Date? 20-02-2020 (yes I love it!)

What baby # is this? 1!

How many cycles trying? First! Can’t believe it. Was gearing up for infertility due to my irregular cycles and my husband’s varicocele…

When did you get your BFP? Yesterday 9DPO on easyhome, FRER, and clearblue digital

Who have you told? Just my husband

When do you plan to tell other people? Not sure yet…

How did you tell your partner? Just got him to come look at the test lol, but we both had a feeling because I usually start spotting at 6-7DPO and that didn’t happen. 

Any symptoms? Nothing at all. 

What are you most excited about? Starting a family!!! I have to be honest, I don’t love babies :S lol but we’ve always wanted kids so gotta just get through the first year! Worrying about how the dog will adapt. 

When is your first appointment? Going to call tomorrow. Still haven’t decided if I want to be followed by a doctor or midwife (in Canada, bot are covered)

When are you planning on finding out the sex? He wants to know asap, I want to wait…so we’ll see lol

How far along are you? 4w4d

Estimated Due Date? 14 Feb 2020Valentine’s Day smile

What baby # is this? 1

How many cycles trying? 0 * We were not trying nor were we preventing. Been using the pull out method for 1.5 years….and he’d only ejaculate inside of me during “safe times”.

When did you get your BFP? 7 June….then negative at Dr on 8 June…and another BFP today, 11 June

Who have you told? My partner and my momma

When do you plan to tell other people? When I am in my 2nd trimester….BUT…I will tell my dad this week…and my bestfriend this week or after my first prenatal visit

How did you tell your partner? On 7 June… I went “all around the world” according to him. Lol. We were sitting on the bed and I said a long version of something like “The unexpected has happened. Guess the time wasn’t as safe as we thought for u to cum inside of me” and then I showed him the HPT. I went to doc the next day and got a BFN and ended up crying to my partner. Plan was to wait another 2 weeks and go back….but today I bought another test and got another BFP. I haven’t told him about it yet but I will soon!

Any symptoms?  Cramps, spotting (it’s since stopped), nausea, sore nipples and tiredness.

What are you most excited about? I don’t even know. I am a pessimist…so though I am happy…I don’t wanna get tooooooo excited too soon…

When is your first appointment? 5 July – the 8 week mark

When are you planning on finding out the sex? ASAPlaughing

How did you tell your partner? He came home after getting our son from daycare and was about to eat a snack when I was like, “Wait, I have to talk to you about something.” He goes, “Oh, you’re not pregnant?” Me: “Actually, I AM pregnant.”

Any symptoms?  A little cramping a week or so ago, slightly sore boobs now. 

What are you most excited about? Finding out the sex and holding that baby! 🙂

When is your first appointment? Haven’t even called yet

When are you planning on finding out the sex? With NIPT testing so around 10-12 weeks

I hadn’t thought about one but then he mentioned it yesterday🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m still only 3 weeks, it feels to lo early, but he’s soooo excited so I can’t NOT now haha.

jayrock :  A lit different since my husband doesn’t know yet, but I bought him a onesie from his favorite sports team and that is how I will announce to him on father’s day. I did amazon prime and one day shipping was thankfully free so it should be here tomorrow…..I am not sure I will be able to hold out until sunday to give it to him, though.

How old are you and DH? I’m 38, Darling Husband is 37

How far along are you? 3 weeks, 6 days 

Estimated Due Date? According to my app, Feb 22

What baby # is this? First!

How many cycles trying?  We’ve been on the fertility train for 19 months now, and I got pregnant via IVF.  In the last 19 months, I’ve had 4 egg retrievals, 2 surgeries for endo, and this was our first FET!!  It’s been an incredibly long, hard, and very expensive journey to get here, we are just really scared that something will go wrong.  Praying every day!!

When did you get your BFP? 6/13

Who have you told? Besides my husband, my parents, 2 friends, and 2 colleagues that have covered me at work while I went to all of my doctors appointments.  

When do you plan to tell other people?  Not until we are well into the second trimester 

How did you tell your partner?  Well, there wasn’t much of a surprise, because he saw the embryos go in! 

Any symptoms?  I’ve had cramping since the day of my FET, as well as low back pain and sore boobs.  I’m also taking supplemental progesterone, so that could be it too.  

What are you most excited about?  I’m way too scared to be excited yet.  When you’ve invested as much as we have, and had as many failures, I’m not getting excited about anything yet.  

When is your first appointment?  I believe at 5 weeks.  I stay with the fertility clinic until 10 weeks, then get released to my regular OB.  

When are you planning on finding out the sex? As soon as we can!!!

pigpug10 :  YAY! congrats! Your story sounds similar to mine! We’ve done 4 egg retrievals and got pregnant from our first FET as well! It looks like our due dates will be pretty close, too! My transfer was the 4th! Have you had your beta yet? Mine is tomorrow and it’s so nerve wracking!

littleanchor :  We do have very similar stories, because my FET was on the 4th as well!!  My beta is Tuesday and the wait is killing me!  I’ve been testing every day!!  How many embryos did you put in?  We put 3, and I wouldn’t be mad if we got twins!

pigpug10 :  My husband laughed at me when I used up the last of my tests yesterday – if I had more, I would’ve kept testing. But, my line was pretty dark on Thursday so the line isn’t getting any darker at this point!  Still don’t believe it! We only put back 1. I was so paranoid it wouldn’t work because we had 4 failed fresh transfers and only 3 frozen embryos from all 4 rounds. I felt much better knowing we had 2 more in the freezer. My dr. recommended 2 but we decided on 1 and I guess that was a good call since it worked!  I wouldn’t have minded twins, either! I have 3 close friends this year who had or are having twins! Physically, though, I can’t imagine carrying twins. I’m pretty petite (only 5’2). Fingers crossed for your beta on Tuesday!

How far along are you? 4 weeks on the dot

Estimated Due Date? According to my app, 2/24/20

What baby # is this? 1

How many cycles trying? 1!! I can’t believe it…we’re happy, or course, but we started trying a little earlier than planned because we didn’t think it would happen on the first try. As a teacher, I was shooting for a late march/April baby, but I’m thrilled that it happened so easily for us (hoping it sticks!). 

When did you get your BFP? Last night, 6/17, at 14 DPO.

Who have you told? Just Darling Husband. I know I’ll be telling my best friend tonight…there’s no way that she won’t pick up on my non-drinking during our bachelorette watch party. 😂

When do you plan to tell other people? Not for a few weeks. I want to get into the doctor and make sure this is a sticky bean before getting everyone excited. 

How did you tell your partner? I took the first test right before getting into the shower and wanted to show him, but he was in the other bathroom…I was already in the shower when he came in and I just poked my head out and pointed to the test on the counter. He looked at it for a few seconds and then said “that’s good, right?” 😂

Any symptoms? I’ve been more lightheaded getting up from prone positions, but that’s been happening this whole month, so it might not be related. I have had a decent amount of cramping- they feel like AF cramps, which is why I was surprised when my tests came up blazing positive. More peeing during the night as well. 

What are you most excited about? Just having my own baby…and seeing my sweet stepdaughter with the baby. She’s 11 and has been not-so-subtly asking for a baby to play with lately. I just hope she has a positive reaction when we tell her…😬

When is your first appointment? Not that far yet- I’ll be calling my OB’s office today. 

When are you planning on finding out the sex? At the anatomy scan, most likely.
