Hi everyone! Congrats to everyone here 🙂
How far along are you? 10 weeks and 3 days
What number will this baby be for you? 1 (yippee!)
When is your due date? According to Doc, around Dec 3rd
How many cycles have you tried? 2
When did you see your BFP? Easter Monday
Have you told anyone? How did you tell them? Told the hubby Christmas would be more expensive this year, and shoved a pee stick in his face. That afternoon we were going to lunch with his folks and I had my fill of sushi for the next while! I had to tell two close colleagues at work as work roles are shifting in the next two months. Oh, and my oldest friend (we’ve known each other since we were 6, so 29 years!)
When and how do you plan on revealing your pregnancy to others? We want to wait until 12 or 13 weeks to tell close family and other friends. I feel really guilty not telling our folks yet, but I couldn’t bear the disappointment if something happens.
Are you hoping for a singleton or twins? Boy or girl? Its definitely a singleton, according to 8.5 week scan
Symptoms? Sore boobs since ovulation, nausea, some cramping, general yuckiness and appetite loss since 5.5 weeks, a bit of moodiness and backache. Oh, and I’m asleep most nights by 8.30! Ligament pain if I sneeze, get up, stretch too quickly.
First appointment? Yip, and got to see the little jelly baby. Couldn’t hear the heart (machine sound issues) but could see the pretty rapid fluttering 🙂
Finding out gender or staying team green? I’m easy either way, but hubby keen to find out.
What are your hopes for this pregnancy? That Sprog will stick around and be totally healthy. I’ve also just been diagnosed with gestational diabetes so have to get used to testing blood sugar 4 times a day- I desperately don’t want diabetes to be in my future after baby is born so I’m trying to control blood sugar with exercise and diet now and nip it in the bud. I also have Grave’s Disease/post-surgical Hypothyroidism so I am on meds and being monitored for that. My new obsession with Doctor Google is scaring myself and worrying about prenatal tests and screening for all sorts of issues 🙁
