OMG bees I cannot believe I’m roll calling…. I’m in such shock!

Roll Call!

How old are you and DH? Both 31

How far along are you? 3 weeks, 4 days

Estimated Due Date? January 31, 2020

What baby # is this? 1

How many cycles trying? 1! We just got married in April and decided to “start” trying right after, thinking it would take a few months… boy were we wrong! 

When did you get your BFP? I got a squinter yesterday and today I took a FRER and-though not very dark- is definitely a positive! AF is technically due tomorrow so I will retest with a digital on Friday

Who have you told? NOONE! Not even my husband yet… I want to tell him in person and I took the FRER this morning at work. I will tell him tonight- so excited!

When do you plan to tell other people? I assume we will probably tell our immediate families early on (not sure how soon), and tell the majority of others once we are in the 2nd trimester.

How did you tell your partner? I haven’t yet! But I bought a shirt that says “Ice Ice” (and i’m hoping he implies the “baby”). Love a little MC Hammer humor.

Any symptoms? Not sure if any of my “symptoms” are pregnancy related… I’ve peed 4 times already today and I have cold symptoms (congestion, runny nose) and a headache. No nauseau, hunger or aversions.

What are you most excited about? Seeing the heartbeat… I feel like it won’t feel “real” until then.

When is your first appointment? I haven’t made one yet. I will call once I’m officially late with AF and if/when I get a positive on a digital

When are you planning on finding out the sex? My husband does not want to find out until the baby is born so we will see. I think I would want to know, but I think I could also go “team green”… we’ll see!

How old are you and DH? I am 34 and my husband is 36

How far along are you? Around 5 weeks is the best guess

Estimated Due Date? Based on app January 24th

What baby # is this? Baby #2 my first is 10 months old 

How many cycles trying? Wasn’t really trying but wasn’t also not trying 

When did you get your BFP? May 23rd

Who have you told? Some family, some friends 

When do you plan to tell other people? After my first ultrasound 

How did you tell your partner? When I took the test lol he went out and bout them for me 

Any symptoms? Just tired

What are you most excited about? Finally being done with having kids 

When is your first appointment? Guess in a couple weeks, I already had a doctors visit set up from my first baby. Was struggling with some PPD a few months back and this was suppose to be a mental check up that will now be turned into a baby checkup haha

When are you planning on finding out the sex? Absolutely, we have a daughter and are now hoping for a son

 

My husband and I are old so we are pumping out the babies, still on the fence about a 3rd which is how many I’ve always wanted but just depends on how this pregnancy and birth go. My first wasn’t on overly difficult experience but it did require an emergency D&C to remove the placenta which caused hemorrhaging and 2 blood transfusions so it’s scary

Hi Ladies!  I’m late to joining this thread, but wanted to join the FB group since the one from my first pregnancy was so incredible and supportive (and we’re still all in touch every day, almost 3 years later!)

How old are you and DH? – I’m 40 and Darling Husband is 37

How far along are you? – 11 weeks, 2 days

Estimated Due Date? – 1/18/2020 – crazily enough, the exact same due date as baby #1! 

What baby # is this? – #2

How many cycles trying? – I had 3 miscarriages in 10 months last year, so we moved on to IVF starting in February of this year.  It took a few months to go through the egg retrieval and embryo testing before we transferred in May.  So, not really the same pattern in terms of “cycles,” but let’s just say it took us a long time to get here, and we were very lucky that the first transfer “took.”

When did you get your BFP? – On Mother’s Day!

Who have you told? – Just a couple friends and my husband’s parents.

When do you plan to tell other people? – After another ultrasound at 12 weeks.

How did you tell your partner? – No exciting story here – I had to go to the fertility clinic for the blood test (yes, on Mother’s Day!) and he was with me when they called back with the results.  

Any symptoms? – Nausea, lack of appetite, super tired, and very emotional. 

What are you most excited about? – Seeing my son become an older brother, completing our family after so much heartbreak during our previous attempts at a healthy pregnancy.

When is your first appointment? – I’ve already had a few appointments – two ultrasounds with the fertility clinic before I “graduated” and got to go back to my OB, and one appointment last week.  My next ultrasound is next week, at just over 12 weeks.  I will have a lot of additional monitoring because of my age and past history (baby #1 was born at 35 weeks)

When are you planning on finding out the sex? – We know the sex because we had embryo testing and it was one of the things reported back to us.  But, we won’t share with everyone (probably just family.)
