@m197500:  Haha you’ve convinced me too, I’m roll calling in both groups as I was to stay in touch with the ladies from Jan but also be able to chat with you ladies who are closer to my possible due date… So here goes

 

ROLL CALL  

How old are you and partner? Both 29

How far along are you? 4 weeks 6 days

Estimated Due Date? February 2nd if I use my O day from FF which I’m pretty certian is correct, I O’d late this month on CD19 instead of CD14 so if I use my last period it puts my due date on Jan 29th but I think Feb 2nd is more likely.  

What baby # is this? 1st πŸ™‚ 

How many cycles trying? 3 cycles with a CP in March

When did you get your BFP? 13DPO on a FRER and 15DPO on a digital 

Who have you told? My husband only so far, I might tell my best friend today when I see her but I’m worried I’ll jinx it 

When do you plan to tell other people? I’m seeing my parents this weekend and I know that my mum will guess it as soon as she looks at me, she did that in March with my CP and I can’t keep secrets from her, then I will probably tell the in-laws next week or the week after and then everyone else maybe 12 weeks. 

How did you tell your partner? I wanted to wait and plan something cute with a onesie but I ended up caving and telling him at 3pm on DPO13 

Any symptoms? Tired, bloated, sore boobs, gassy (so many burps) and a little bit of mild nausea 

What are you most excited about? Everything! This is all so new πŸ™‚

When is your first appointment?  I am not sure what the process is but ill call the doctors next week

Are you planning on finding out the sex? No we want to have it as a surprise but who knows if I’ll be able to hold out that long

Anything else? I think thats about it!

@katier28:  YAY!!! 

When there are so few people to talk about this with right now, two groups can’t hurt. More the merrier and I’m sure the Jan ladies feel the same. πŸ₯³

@Alex04242015:  welcome bee! The video of your daughters sounds adorable. πŸ™‚

 

It’s been a few days since I last checked in – was freaking myself out over stories of losses so I took a break. Now, I’m reading about all the skin care ingredients to avoid, which basically means I’ve got to figure out all new cleanser, moisturizer, toner, Bb/Cc cream, and sunscreen and it’s overwhelming! And feels urgent since I don’t want to use what I have now. Anybody have good products to recommend?

@m197500:  WHAT? The only thing I’m avoiding is retinols. (Didn’t even think that I needed to avoid anything else. Yikes.)

I’d take some of that with a grain of salt; how much of those products are actually going to be absorbed in meaningful amounts to harm baby? (Sunblock I can believe, though, because chemial sunblocks depend on reactions within your skin to be effective. Retinol also as above.) I am changing nothing else. My baby is going to come out with three noses. But I currently use DHC oil cleanser. Hada labo gokujyun lotion for toner. I stopped using BB cream and foundation mainly because I’m in healthcare and have to reuse masks and I find it gross to reuse a mask where I can visibly see the soil from my makeup. If I really need makeup or am not going to wear a mask, I am just using mineral powder at this point. I LOVE Etude House sunprise sunblock, which is a physical sunblock and does not rely on chemical reactions (as above). I don’t know what chemicals you’re trying to specifically avoid, but I have really liked Holika Holika Good Cera Toner as a light summer moisturizer; currently using DHC Rich Moisture. Can you tell I’m into Asian skincare? I just outed myself. It’s changed my skin.
