Washingtonian :  you’re so lucky you get to see the heartbeat next week! I’m in 2 minds about whether to pay for an early scan or not (had a mmc about 8 years ago and this is first pregnancy since) because I will otherwise only get a 12 and 20 week scan. Ahh don’t know what to do!

hopfenn :  thank-you! This is a bit surreal isn’t it?

Washingtonian :  heartbeat awwww keep us updated!!

we are going for a long weekend with my in-laws (we are really close) this weekend. There will be drinking and everyone will notice if I don’t have a wine….I’m thinking we may as well just tell them, I don’t think I can hang on 12 weeks. I am a terrible lier…they will know somethings Up regardless.  Also totally agree that it’s better to have support if a loss happened.

diamonddaisy :  I would pay for that scan if I were you, it will be worth putting your mind at ease.

ps took this today and am starting to believe it!!!

We keep telling people too… We told a couple we are close with who are about 12 weeks pregnant right now. I told my best friend and my Darling Husband is planning on telling his brother. Then hopefully we can keep it quite until after the first appointment. 

 

swissbride :  I took a test this morning too! IDK why I can’t stop!!! I bought a 25 pack of cheapies and I figure I mind as well use them.

This week I’ve been experiencing minor spotting here and there. Nothing much really and not all the time, never enough to even wear a panty liner. (TMI coming) Pink discharge, tiny blood spot or clot (size of a needle head), beige/light brown discharge, and tiny traces of blood in my discharge here and there (if I wasn’t looking for it I probably wouldn’t even notice). My discharge was white around my BFP, now it’s yellowish, and there’s much less of it. Then I thought I was getting a UTI after some painful urination and abdominal pain last night. 

So I went to the doctor to get it checked and they decided to check on LO at the same time. They said that a little bleeding is normal as the baby is making the uterus into its home, that I should only worry if I experience heavier bleeding (like a period). They still did an ultrasound right away to check how things are looking. 

I’m only 5w1d so there’s not much to see. But she saw the gestational sac in my uterus, and within that she saw the yolk sac where our little apple seed is growing ☺️ 

She said she can’t see a baby yet (too early), but everything is looking good and she’s very confident there’s a little one growing in there. 

So next time I see a little tinge of blood, I won’t let it worry me as much. 

I have a picture. Not the best quality as their machine was on the older side, but here she/he is. The yolk sac is barely distinguishable at the bottom of the darker gestational sac, but there it is! I got to see it much more clearly on the screen and I was so relieved. 

 

Even though it’s too early to see a baby or a heartbeat, it feels really good knowing that everything is progressing normally (and in the right place).

Now I’m looking forward to the next betas and ultrasound.

Baby glue to all!

How did you tell your partner? I woke him up after taking the test and asked him to see if he thought there were two lines because I couldn’t tell.  It was so unromatic and unexciting, but exciting at the same time.  We got to be confused about the results together (until I took the digital test 20 minutes later with the same results!)

Any symptoms? Just a little more tired than normal, but nothign bad yet!

What are you most excited about? everything

When is your first appointment? three weeks

When are you planning on finding out the sex? Debating – likely at the 20 week scan, but I’m not sure I want to know.

Washingtonian :  I totally get how unsettling it is to see any amount of blood down there. I had a little more pink/brown discharge today, but trying to stay cool as the doctor said.

Waiting to see a doctor can be difficult. But if you get any heavy bleeding, I definitely wouldn’t wait. 

Hoping everything will be fine with your little one :)FX

Congrats to all you lovely mamas! I’m in two other bee groups for my daughters and it’s been such a wonderful way to connect. And the smaller group sizes are so much nicer than the mass birth month groups out there.

hopfenn :  thanks! I feel like you’ve been on every monthly POAS board with me since I started ttc so I’m excited for us both that we got our BFP. Even though I’ve taken 4 tests and they all came back BFP, I think I’ll be able to believe it once I officially miss my period (which is due tomorrow)
