Wow, I guess this is my crew now!  It’s still sinking in, but here goes…

ROLL CALL  

How old are you and partner? 34 (in a few days)/30

How far along are you? 5 weeks today

Estimated Due Date? 5/3

What baby # is this? First

How many cycles trying? 7 – I was about to mentally let go of this happening at all, and boom, there it was

When did you get your BFP? 10 dpo, after 9 was totally negative and I’d counted myself out but figured I might as well check

Who have you told? Nobody except my husband!

When do you plan to tell other people? We’ll probably wait until after my first appointment to tell most people, though that feels like ages so I might crack and tell trusted friend earlier

How did you tell your partner? I said “Hey look!” when he walked into the bathroom after my shower and showed him the test

Any symptoms? Breast tenderness that comes and goes and mild nausea here and there.  I’m surprised I don’t feel it more!

What are you most excited about? Oh man… Having kids?  Haha, I’m not even sure.  Everything is exciting and new!  It will be really fun to tell my parents that they get to be grandparents.

When is your first appointment? In about 3 weeks, BUT I might have to push it out a week because of a work conflict.  I’m of course eager to go so I haven’t rescheduled it yet!

Are you planning on finding out the sex? Hadn’t considered not doing it, so yes!

Anything else? These first weeks are stressful!  I’m so worried something will go wrong and I won’t know until that first appointment that feels like FOREVER away.

Long time lurker here, since planning a wedding several years ago and now ttc these boards really helped me out! So thought I’d participate ๐Ÿ™‚ 

ROLL CALL  

How old are you and partner? 31 and 30

How far along are you? 5 weeks today

Estimated Due Date? May 11, 2021

What baby # is this? 1st biological, we are also adoptive parents

How many cycles trying? 1st try, very surprised and now feeling extra anxious because it seems impossible that ttc would go well so fast considering how hard this whole process is for so many people

When did you get your BFP? Felt sharm implantation pain (I think) at 10dpo, and 11dpo there was a very faint line in the morning, more clear in the evening

Who have you told? My fiance

When do you plan to tell other people? OUr wedding will be in 2 months and we plan on telling everyone after the ceremony. Feeling extremely excited about this! But I am not a great secret keeper so I find it so hard to not tell my parents and my best friends… 

How did you tell your partner? I told him I didn’t test that day and I would wait until 13dpo because all the BFN were discouraging. And all day I kept repeating I didn’t feel pregnant but then I surprised him that evening by hiding the two tests in his pillowcase, he was so happy!

Any symptoms? Boobs hurt, very nauseous from 12 dpo until 16 dpo (feeling a little worried that it disappeared), cramping, metal taste, lower back pain sometimes, mood swings

What are you most excited about? Telling everyone at the wedding! We might tell my parents a day before though because this will be their first and probably only biological grandchild and my mom has been so excited for me to get pregnant. 

When is your first appointment? Sept 15 (will be 6 weeks then)

Are you planning on finding out the sex? Yes, but we’ll try not to tell others yet (I don’t know if I can keep any more secrets though)

Anything else? Feeling a mix over excited and worried all the time, I really hope everything goes well!

@kb7:  Can you share the link of the group?

How old are you and partner? 32 and 36

How far along are you? like, one day. I just got a BFP this morning haha. Is that two weeks technically? I can’t remember anything from my first LOL

Estimated Due Date? May 21

What baby # is this? 2

How many cycles trying? First, maybe second but when we decided to try last month i knew the timing was bad. This was the first like actually trying cycle. I kept getting cold feet. We were supposed to start tying months ago haha

When did you get your BFP? This morning 9/8

Who have you told? Just my husband

When do you plan to tell other people? Unsure, I probably will keep it underwraps as long as I can. I do have a girls weekend planned with my mom and sister in October so I likely will tell them then. 

How did you tell your partner? I just walked in from working out and said ‘ im pregnant” ( very uneventful, LOL!) My first I told him through text, I am the worst.

Any symptoms? My boobs hurt a little, which they don’t normally during my normal cycle.

What are you most excited about? Honestly, even though this baby is planned I am having a hard time getting amped. Im excited to give my daughter a sibling, but I really didn’t love the newborn phase. so, Im trying to just take things one day at a time. I still feel like its so early I don’t want to get all excited until after my first U/s

When is your first appointment? I just scheduled one for next week, unsure if I actually need to go in or not. I use CNM and they might just have me come in for the 9-10 week u/s

Are you planning on finding out the sex? No, We were surprised with my daughter and will be surprised again!
