    Thanks for creating this thread! So so so excited but also so scared! LOL 

    How far along are you? 4w2d

    What’s your estimated due date: March 1st as well! Haha Darling Husband said the same thing about Leap Year baby. Apparently it would be surprising to go the whole 40weeks so maybe we will have Feb babies. 

    How many cycles trying? Second! I am scared about having a CP. 

    When did you get your BFP? BFN 06/21, BFP 06/23

    Who have you told? Darling Husband looked at sticks with me, 3 close friends 

    When do you plan on telling more people? My parents 6 weeks, his parents 8 weeks, everyone else 12 weeks. It’s hard to keep secret but one of my close friends just had a mc at 8 weeks πŸ™ so I am being cautious

    How did you tell your partner? HAHA he was with me for the test – he wanted to know as soon as I did

    Any symptoms yet? Some small pimples in random areas on my face, going pee hourly (thankfully not overnight).

    What are you most excited about/for? First ultrasound – which will be late August (so far)!!! 

    When is your first appt? We actually just moved to new area and had new doctor apt yest so I told her. She gave me the paperwork for bloodwork/ultrasound for later. I’ll see her agin early August. 

    For fun – Do you have any names picked out? A bunch we like but nothing for sure. Girls: Paisley, Kennedy Boys: Reed

    For fun – Bonus round: Will you find out the gender or are you team green? There is 0% chance I could wait to find out – I don’t know how people do it!

    Hello from Texas!!! I’m so excited to chat with you all. My answers are below:

    How far along are you? I just hit 4 weeks based on Ovulation!

    What’s your estimated due date: March 2nd 

    How many cycles trying? This was our second cycle trying.

    When did you get your BFP? This past weekend I was a panelest at a Science Fiction and Fantasy conference as an author. I noticed on Saturday that I had been feeling a bit tired and had some nausea, but thought it was a coincidence. When I could barely move on Sunday after the conference and had been bloated for days, I thought I’d take a test, just to put it out of my mind…and it was positive!!!

    Who have you told? Darling Husband…I want to tell more, but my Darling Husband is being super secretive about it.

    When do you plan on telling more people? First round of family and inner circle friends will be hold after we have our first check up – which won’t be until the first week in August .

    How did you tell your partner? He was out of town with his dad for Father’s Day. I immediately called him and was so excited that I didn’t even realize I was telling he is going to be a father on Father’s Day .

    Any symptoms yet? Lots of bloating, some cramping, some nausea and food aversions, and a bit emotional. I almost cried when the weight watchers people told me that I’d have to suspend my membership because I was pregnant. It almost ruined my whole day.

    What are you most excited about/for? The first ultrasound!!!

    When is your first appt? August 4th…but I’m hoping we can get an earlier one.

    For fun – Do you have any names picked out? Nope!

    For fun – Bonus round: Will you find out the gender or are you team green? I don’t want to wait, but the hubby does…we’ll just have to talk that one out.

    Hi Ladies — this is my frist time posting, but I got my BFP and I am DYING to tell someone….so you guys are it!!

    How far along are you? 4w1d

    What’s your estimated due date: March 1st 

    How many cycles trying? 3 cycles

    When did you get your BFP? I had a pretty faint positive 9DPO. Since then I have taken about 5 more tests and they’ve all gotten darker πŸ™‚ 

    Who have you told? Just Darling Husband and one co-worker.

    When do you plan on telling more people? We’ll tell my our parents/siblings at the end of July (when we’re ~8 weeks) and everyone else after 12 weeks! 

    How did you tell your partner? I always pictured telling him in a cute way, with a onesie or something. Reality was much different haha – I just kind of threw the test at him and asked him if he saw a line too or if I was crazy. 

    Any symptoms yet? I get a little dizzy occasionally, and my boobs hurt. Other than that, nothing too bad. 

    What are you most excited about/for? Definitely to see/hear the heartbeat! And to tell our families. Keeping this a secret is SO hard. 

    When is your first appt? I had my PCP confirm it this morning, and I have my first ultrasound on July 1st so I’ll be just over 5 weeks. 

    For fun – Do you have any names picked out? We have a few that we like, but nothing actually picked yet. 

    For fun – Bonus round: Will you find out the gender or are you team green? Oh I definitely want to know πŸ™‚

    Hi ladies, excited to tell someone!!

    How far along are you? Early! 1-2wks?!

    What’s your estimated due date: March 7th

    How many cycles trying? 3

    When did you get your BFP? I got a positive FRER on 8dpo yesterday and took a digital today which confirmed prego 1-2wks. 

    Who have you told? hubby, mom, and close friend

    When do you plan on telling more people? will tell my mother in law next week when she’s here and other people whenever it happens

    How did you tell your partner? I took the test first thing in the morning and assuming it would be negative but wanted to feel better about my choice to maybe cave and take some cold medicine (I’m having the worst cold that started Sunday, needless to say I’m medication free and sick).. Anyways I called him at work right after and said it was a few days late but happy fathers day!

    Any symptoms yet? some cramping which makes me nervous and extreme thirst

    What are you most excited about/for? too see the little nugget on u/s and gender!

    When is your first appt? August 12

    For fun – Do you have any names picked out? – for a boy, nothing. For a girl maybe Lauren or Shae

    For fun – Bonus round: Will you find out the gender or are you team green? I can’t wait!

    Roll Call:

    How far along are you? 4+3

    What’s your estimated due date: March 1st

    How many cycles trying? 8 months/ 4 loooong cycles (including a CP in December) 

    When did you get your BFP? I got a faint, but definitely there, positive on a cheapie while overseas Sunday 21st at 12DPO, got back Wednesday 24th and got a strong positive on an FRER and Pregnant 2-3 weeks on a digital at 15DPO. Confirmed by blood test 16DPO

    Who have you told? Darling Husband and one a close friend who is also my spin instructor (had to tell her that the fans are my friend in class)

    When do you plan on telling more people? I am absolutely terrified to tell more people. Thanks to a previous CP I am so so so worried that something will go wrong. I hope after an early u/s I will feel more comfortable with telling people. 

    How did you tell your partner? He knew I was taking the test. My very underwhelming way of telling him was announcing ‘yo baby I’m fairly sure there’s a second line’ while he was in the middle of eating a burger.

    Any symptoms yet? My symptoms are crazy strong. My nipples have been so so sore since Oing, my boobs are now huge, perky and tender, I have cramping on and off, already have some nausea when eating (couldn’t eat my salad for lunch yesterday thanks to wanting to vom), bloating, thirsty, need to pee sooo much (5 times by 8am this morning!) and tired. So thankful for each and every one of my symptoms though. At least it lets me know that something is happening

    What are you most excited about/for? Heartbeat, Ultrasound, Sex, and most of all having a healthy baby

    When is your first appt? Second beta is tomorrow and then if that goes well we will get an appointment with my fertility specialist for an early ultrasound some time in July

    For fun – Do you have any names picked out? Nope – Darling Husband and I can’t agree on anything

    For fun – Bonus round: Will you find out the gender or are you team green? Spoilers are my favourite thing ever. There is literally no chance of me waiting.

    Nice to meet all of you ladies. I am sooooooooo worried about jinxing myself by joining this board. Because of my previous CP I seem to have a massive brain block and won’t let myself think that I will end up with a baby. It seems silly, but in my head the chance  of miscarriage is still like 95%. I got my blood test yesterday and the nurse was really happy with the result (131 at 16DPO) but it seems a little low to me. I know I could’ve implanted later… but still. I can’t wait to make it through the first tri!!

    Alip22:  Haha my husband said he’d like a leap year baby (they would always have an icebreaker). But I’m a Boxing Day baby and I know how it feels to always have to celebrate your birthday on a different day. 

    OliveFinn:  yay! Welcome to the March 1st club haha. Sorry to hear about the CP – everything sounds great this time! One of my best friends just had a miscarriage at 8 weeks πŸ™ (second pregnancy) and she had told so many friends and family. It has made me want to be a lot more cautious- although I also want to tell everyone I see. And holy symptoms!! I just have little acne, dizzy if I get up to fast?, boobs just little sore today.

    Hi ladies, unfortunately I don’t know how long I’ll be able to stick around on this board. Had my second blood test today. Hcg only went from 131 at 16dpo to 207 at 18dpo. Going in for a third blood test next wednesday but I don’t have a good feeling. Hoping all of your pregnancies are progressing happily and healthfully
