How old are you and DH? 33 and 31

How far along are you? 3+6

Estimated Due Date? 3/8/20

What baby # is this? 1

How many cycles trying? About 7 (we were NTNP for a little while)

When did you get your BFP? Today! 13 DPO

Who have you told? My best friend and his

When do you plan to tell other people? His parents are visiting from abroad in early August, so we’re going to get them together with my parents and tell them all in person.  If we can hold out that long!  After that, we’ll probably tell people gradually as it seems appropriate, then make an announcement at 12 weeks.

How did you tell your partner? I have no chill.  I took a cheapie, then a FRER, then woke him up at 6 a.m. by opening a curtain and shoving the stick in his face.  Poor guy had never even seen one so I had to explain what he was looking at!

Any symptoms? I thought my boobs might have been feeling a little odd the past week, and a couple days ago I got unreasonably upset about something small (cried over it and everything, and I’m not a cryer in general), but this might all just be the benefit of hindsight.

What are you most excited about? I don’t know!  It hasn’t really even sunk in yet.

When is your first appointment? I emailed my PCP’s office today.  I work night shifts (lots and lots of night shifts) so not sure when I’m going to be able to get in to see her.  I have an appointment with a new GYN (guess it’ll be a new OB now!) at the end of July, but hoping I’ll be able to see PCP before then.

When are you planning on finding out the sex? We’re intending to wait until birth, but that may well change.

How old are you and DH? 32 / 35

How far along are you? 3w5d (13DPO today)

Estimated Due Date? March 10, 2020

What baby # is this? #1!!

How many cycles trying? This was the 6th (had a chemical in January our first cycle trying)

When did you get your BFP? 10 DPO in the evening

Who have you told? Darling Husband, and my boss at work (who’s also a friend of mine). She was really supportive during the chemical so I wanted to tell her early. I’m also going to tell my other close coworker/friend since he’d be the person filling in for me in case I need to miss any work.

When do you plan to tell other people? Mother in law and brother in law are coming into town in mid July for hubby’s grandfather’s funeral service. We’re also going out to dinner while they’re here with my parents so we’re thinking about telling them then when I’m about 6 weeks.

How did you tell your partner? He was there with me when I took the test! He’s been really cute, always wanting to be with me when I do each one ๐Ÿ™‚

Any symptoms? I was having pretty strong symptoms before my BFP – nausea, sore breasts, elevated body temperature, out of breath. It’s lessened now though so of course it’s starting to get me worried. But I’m trying to stay hopeful/positive! I also had some pink spotting and mild cramping yesterday at 12DPO, so I went to urgent care and my HCG was 40. Going in Tuesday morning for a repeat HCG to make sure it’s doubling.

What are you most excited about? Everything lol! Finding out the gender, choosing a name, being pregnant and seeing hubby as a dad ๐Ÿ™‚

When is your first appointment? I have Kaiser, so I have to do a 2 hour prenatal intake appointment on July 3rd. I hope they run another HCG and also check my progesterone. I have Hashimoto’s and I’m concerned about that since I’ve heard it can be linked to low progesterone produciton. Fingers crossed this is a sticky bean!

When are you planning on finding out the sex? Planning on doing NIPT of some kind, hopefully Kaiser will let me do it and will include the gender option.

My post won’t load. I’ve tried 3 times and I’m afraid if I keep trying they will all load at once. Anyone experience this? Should I keep trying or will they eventually load? It does say that I was the last person to post despite my post not being there.

Anyone else still feeling like this isn’t real?  I haven’t had any symptoms yet aside from boobs feeling slightly more heavy/sensitive than usual (although Darling Husband says they don’t look different, and he should certainly know, haha).  POASd again today and that little line is still there, but that’s the only concrete proof I have of this crazy thing that’s happening!

kooshball5 :  I feel the same! 4 weeks 5 days and I’m feeling pretty much normal … my boobs feel heavier and as of yesterday I noticed they are sore to touch like under and the outsides but nothing too dramatic! Just waiting until the dating scan. Seems like such a long wait! Fingers crossed all is well.
