I thought it would be nice to have a thread for all of us ladies in our first trimesters to offer support to each other.
Date of BFP: Jan 6th at 11DPO
Date of first doctors appointment: January 23 for labs and January 29 to see doc.
How is your DH/SO/FH dealing with it: He is really excited
Who have you told: We have told DH’s parents, my sister, my grandma, and our kids.
Symptoms: Bloating, nausea at certain foods, and some cravings.
Cravings: Salad, Ranch Dressing, and French Fries (not fried they have to be baked)
How is everyone feeling?

@MarryMeTiffany: Did you mean Feb instead of Jan? 🙂
Date of BFP: Feb 5th at 11DPO (4w2d)
Date of first doctors appointment: Went in for blood yesterday, they’re calling today if they see a problem (so I’m hoping for no call). Going back on Thursday the 16th for what they call a “meet&greet” appointment (less than a week!)
How is your DH/SO/FH dealing with it: He is very happy but not letting himself get excited yet (cautious).
Who have you told: No one and don’t plan to until 13w mark (hope I can last)
Symptoms: Bloating, thirst…boobs feel heavier (I’m not complain’n!)
Cravings: None yet although I am can’t stand meat right now, I think it’s my heightened sense of smell.
*Ordered a bella band already :p I’ll def need that soon.

Date of BFP: Jan 28th at 13DPO (due first week of October, exact date TBC)
Date of first doctors appointment: Went to my GP on 31/01, it was a complete non event! I have meetings with two midwives lined up for this coming week and from there I can pick one to be my LMC and make an appointment for my twelve week scan.
How is your DH/SO/FH dealing with it: He’s playing it cool but I know he’s excited. He’s also being kind of annoying and being the food police. I don’t like the food police…
Who have you told: Our parents, DH’s sister and SIL’s best friend (she knows as I asked who her midwife was)
Symptoms: Reeeally sore boobs, high temp, some fatigue. My worst symptom is that I feel queasy and hungry all the time, I don’t feel like eating but I feel bad if I don’t.
Cravings: everything and nothing all at the same time. Yesterday it was an apple, today it was KFC chips.

I have a feeling I am going to be stressed out my entire 1st trimester…I seriously just want it to be over…fastforward to heartbeat day! Then onto my 2nd tri, because I am anxious :/
For those who are worried: When do you feel like you will wind down a little? seeing heartbeat? hearing it? 2nd tri?

@TurtleDoves: I did mean Feb in my original post lol that’s what happens when I’m typing fast.
I feel anxious every time I go to the bathroom terrified I might see blood. I am however staying positive and I just know that in 9 months I will be holding a beautiful baby in my arms. I CANNOT wait for my first apt to hear Baby B’s heartbeat I will feel so much less anxious then.
Here is my first chalkboard picture we are going to do this every week (got the idea on pinterest)
