How old are you? 30. Husband is 36.
How far along are you? 3 weeks, 4 days
Estimated Due Date? July 4th
What baby # is this? 2
How many cycles trying? Well, NTNP since April, but this was our first month actually TRYING with OPKs and PreSeed
When did you get your BFP? Sunday morning, 10/20! Suuuuuper squinter.
Who have you told? Just my management and my immediate team at work! I am a Veterinary Technician, so since I deal with radiation, anesthesia, chemicals, and other drugs, it is a hazard for me to be around, so I had to disclose it THE DAY AFTER I FOUND OUT (3w 2d) for our safety.
When do you plan to tell other people? As for family, I would like to surprise them at Thanksgiving (8w 5d). As for everyone else, I will hit 2nd trimester on December 28th, so I might jump the gun and do a Christmas announcement! Clearly I’m feeling the Holiday vibe… lol.
How did you tell your partner? So, funny story – I actually haven’t told him yet! With #1, I found out a week before our first wedding anniversary. I already had a surprise lined up for him for that (a ride in a sidecar – yes like on a motorcycle… he’s always wanted to do that, haha). So I waited 7 whole days to be able to surprise him with that news as well, and make it the best day every for him! Our anniversary, a sidecar ride, and news of baby all at one time!
He had told me that the next time when I find out we’re expecting, he would like to be surprised again – it’s more fun than standing in the bathroom looking at a stick (lol). So, since its so close to Halloween, I’m incorperating that into it. This means that I’m keeping it a secret from him for 11 days! ELEVEN DAYS, yall. E L E V E N D A Y S. But I am so excited. Our daughter wants us all to be kitties for Halloween, so I am making all of our costumes. I have printed a little sleeping kitten onto sticker paper and will cut it out and place it on my lower abdomen while in costume on Halloween and see how long it takes him to figure it out 🙂
Any symptoms? Yes! Already totally bloaty and a tad uncomfortable sometimes. Maybe even a little slight nausea? Can’t tell if I’m making that up or not. hahaha
What are you most excited about? The cute belly! I’m also hoping to be able to feel the kicks sooner and better with this pregnancy. Last time, I had an anterior placenta (implanted on belly side instead of back side) which is great for baby because its a bit of extra protection from the outside world, but lame for me because it diminished the kicks.
When is your first appointment? First offical appointment is Nov 26 at 8 weeks, 4 days. My OBGYN won’t see you until at least 8 weeks, unless issues are suspected. However, this date may have to chance because my husband is currently in the middle of switching jobs, so if he can’t make this appointment, we will have to reschedule.
Also, since with our first baby we were able to get in somehwere else for a scan at 6 weeks… I am going to try to get us in there as well to have a really early ultrasound picture! I’m hoping to get in on Novermber 12th for that (6w, 4 days) since I am off every Tuesday.
Are you planning on finding out the sex? Yes! We didn’t want to find out with our first… but I definitely want to know this time because I need to know if we can share use the same girl clothes! I want to wait for the 20 week ultrasound. For me, that’s so exciting, laying there on the table waiting to actually SEE it for myself instead of read it on a piece of paper.
