How far along are you? 3 weeks, 6 days
What is your estimated due date? 5 July 2018
What baby # is this? first
How many cycles trying? only one! Had my copper IUD removed on 27 September, BFP on 20 October!
When did you get your BFP? very faint line at 10DPO and by 13DPO it was as dark as the control line!
Who have you told? My mom (who has been sworn to secrecy) and my two best friends who I promised to tell as soon as it happened.
When do you plan on telling more people? I’ll be 13 weeks along by Christmas, so will tell family at Christmas and everyone else in the New Year.
How did you tell your partner? I had a + on the Friday but we both work so waited until 6am Saturday morning at 11DPO, took a FRER with FMU and it was pretty dark. I had this little baby shirt that had a father and baby racoon on it and I got back into bed and tapped him on the shoulder and quietly said ‘Look babe’ while showing him the test and the shirt. We hugged and cried a little. It wasn’t a huge surprise if I’m honest. I had symptoms from O day that weren’t usual for me and we knew something was up haha
Any symptoms yet? YES – Really tired, pinches and cramps everyday since O day, mood swings, tearful, mild nausea/heartburn, random hot flashes, hungrier than usual (like waking up with hunger pangs!), sensitive and more full boobs. I’m not even 4 weeks yet so I think I’m in for one hell of a ride haha
What are you most excited about? There isn’t just one thing. We’ve been together 10 years in February (since HS) and I’ve wanted a baby for as long as I can remember but we waited to get married and buy a house first which we did this year. I can’t wait to see our families with him or her. It’s the first grandchild and neice/nephew for everyone and it’s going to be magic. I also can’t wait to meet our child and watch my husband be a dad.
When is your first appointment? I’m seeing my GP’s office next week for bloods and a dating scan then I have my 10 week scan at my OB in December
Are you planning on finding out the baby’s gender? Yes, we plan on finding out for ourselves but not telling anyone until the birth announcement!
