mysterygal101 :  nice to see you here! I remember you from poas boards too!

welcome to all others,cool to see this board filling up!

Washingtonian :  so glad to hear your scan went ok. You must be relieved.

I have my first appointment on the 27th of May…so can’t wait to see something is actually in there.Other than cramping & super sense of smell I don’t have any symptoms.

How is everyone else feeling?

swissbride :  yes I remember seeing you on pretty much every POAS board with me.  It’s nice that we finally got our BFP! I have cramps and an ever lasting headache and peeing all the time, but other than that I feel okay.  Have you joined the secret FB group? It’s more active than this page =]

Washingtonian :  Woot!  Yay for good heartrates!  Assuming you’re DC-based from your name/avatar — what practice do you go to?  I go to Inova and they won’t even see me until 8 weeks.  Darling Husband and I are so anxious to get in and still have two weeks to wait!

How old are you and DH?  34/32

How far along are you?  9dpo, so 3w2d?

Estimated Due Date?  I’m going to say January 22 – that’s by LMP date so it’s what the doctor will use.  Jan 27 by O date.  

What baby # is this?  3

How many cycles trying?  1!  I’m still shocked it happened this quickly.  My first took 12 months, second took 2 months, so I had no idea what to expect.  

When did you get your BFP?  had a super sqinter yesterday, much better line today.  

Who have you told?  Just Darling Husband.

When do you plan to tell other people?  I’d like to hold out until 12 weeks.  I successfully did that with my first, but the second I caved and told my mom at 6 weeks.  

How did you tell your partner?  He was out of town for work, so I just called him and said “I think I’m pregnant…”

Any symptoms?  Light cramping, but that would be normal for this time of the month.  I was weirdly emotional a couple days ago.  That prompted me to take a test.  

What are you most excited about?  Hearing the heartbeat, feeling baby move, being pregnant with my sister-in-law again (I was 3 weeks ahead of her with our oldest kids, and she’s 5 weeks ahead of me now).  Also, like a previous poster said, I’m looking forward to baby being a little older!  I know it’s sad to wish away time, but I hate being pregnant, and the newborn stage is soooooo hard.  Can’t wait for baby to be about 6 months.  🙂

When is your first appointment?  Not til June 24th!  It seems like years away.  They offered me the week before, but we’ll be out of town, so I guess I’ll be unpatiently waiting!  I do get betas today and Friday though (due to a previous ectopic pregnancy), so hopefully the numbers will rise appropriately and that will give me a little piece of mind for a while.  

When are you planning on finding out the sex?  At birth.  We were team green for our first two as well.  I’m a liiiiitle bit tempted to find out earlier this time because we already have two girls, but I think we’ll hold out again.

How did you tell your partner? I decorated the bedroom with pink and blue balloons. On the bed, I had a mini chalkboard sign that that “Hello Daddy! See you Jan 2020” with a baby shirt my mom got me a while ago, a positive pregnancy test, and a card. He was traveling so I was able to do a big cute reveal 

Any symptoms? Cramping during week 3. Today is the first day I got morning sickness.

What are you most excited about? Having a baby in my arms

When is your first appointment? I went to one already, but I was too early. Next one is this Saturday
