Estimated Due Date? Feb 25, 2020 according to online calculator, will get a more accurate one from doctor at u/s
What baby # is this? #1 for me, #3 for Darling Husband
How many cycles trying? About 18 months; this pregnancy is the result of an IVF cycle with fresh Day 5 transfer on 6/9
When did you get your BFP? 6dp5dt I got my first positive, have had two betas since then
Who have you told? Darling Husband and our family and friends who knew we were going through IVF. We were pretty open about it, so they knew when our beta day was.
When do you plan to tell other people? We will wait to tell my stepsons until at least we have a strong heartbeat, but may wait until I’m released from the OB.
How did you tell your partner? Like one of the other IVF Mommas said, Darling Husband was there and saw the embryo go in, so it wasn’t really a surprise.
Any symptoms? Not really… I’ve had sore boobs, but I’ve had those for over a month since I started this IVF cycle. I’m on progesterone injections, so it causes a lot of “symptoms” like the boobs and mild cramping and bloating, etc.
What are you most excited about? Just to finally be pregnant!!
When is your first appointment? I’ve had two beta tests already; 11dp5dt was 330 and 15dp5dt was 2000, so I feel good about that. Ultrasound scheduled for 7/8 to see if everyone looks good with the little Bubble and we should be able to hear a heartbeat by then if all is going well.
When are you planning on finding out the sex? I actually already know the sex. We did PGS testing of our embryos, so we know that this one is chromosmally normal and is a girl!
