Hope it’s okay that I’m coming over here. I was in the charters group a while ago–like two years ago, almost? But gave up on updating on BFN after BFN, and then gave up trying. But now here I am, and I need friends who are where I am!

How far along are you?: 4w5d

What’s your estimated due date: Nov 16

How many cycles trying? Well….we tried for 18, including stints at two fertility clinics, and then gave up for 5 months. And now here we are.

When did you get your BFP?: this AM! I’m, like, a week late and thought it could be that I was on an antibiotic, which could stall things. Nope. 

Who have you told?: My husband and my Jan 2014 mommy group, plus the other TTC group I’d joined

When do you plan on telling more people? Gotta tell my BFFs soon. My bestest friend has a complicated history with fertility, so I have to do it the right way.

How did you tell your partner? He came down to pee, and I met him in the bathroom. Handed the two tests to him, silently, then started crying. 

Any symptoms yet? Not really. A little cramping, I guess.

What are you most excited about/for? First, getting confirmation at the earliest possibility that everything is healthy in there (i’m old and fat, and I stopped taking my prenatals a few months ago b/c we stopped trying), and then getting to experience all those baby moments all over again. I feel like I wasn’t relaxed enough about my son’s infancy, I want the chance to be more relaxed this time. 

When is your first appt? haven’t called yet, but it’ll probably be that first week of April.

 

And hi to my friend MrsPuddingFace. So glad you’re here!!!!

Hi ladies! So excited to be joining this boar.d

ROLL CALL:

How far along are you?: 4w1d

What’s your estimated due date: November 26th!

How many cycles trying? 10 cycles. We got pregnant and miscarried our first at 7.5 weeks, that was last July. It has been ten cycles since then.

When did you get your BFP?: Friday the 17th! on 10 DPO. Still don’t believe it.

Who have you told?: Husband, bff, and my parents. Told my parents because last time I called my mom in tears telling her “I’ve just had a miscarriage and I want some emotional support.” This time I told her the day after I found out.

When do you plan on telling more people? After we see the heartbeat…and still plan to wait past first tri or longer for work.

How did you tell your partner? The test looked negative at first and I SOBBED in the bathroom (that should have been clue one). Then I went to throw it out and realized it had the faintest line imaginable. I’ve taken a few more since then, they are still faint but def there!

Any symptoms yet? Lots of cramping/achy tummy. Sore boobs. Very teary-eyed during sad shows. Nothing else yet!

What are you most excited about/for? Experiencing this with my husband–I’m a little older and we are so ready.

When is your first appt? I had a beta drawn today (3/20, on my request) just to confirm that the faint lines are not a chemical. Our first appt is April 17th. I’m so damn nervous about another miscarriage but also really feel confident in this pregnancy…*shrug*

For fun – Will you be finding out the gender or being team green? Definitely finding out!

Hi Bees!

So excited to be joining in!!

I’ve PM’d someone to join the FB group but haven’t heard so I’ll message someone else too!

How far along are you?: 4w1d

What’s your estimated due date: Nov 28th

How many cycles trying? Just shy of 2 years!

When did you get your BFP?: 13DPO – the day before my 30th bday! Wasn’t going to test as was certain I was getting AF.

Who have you told?: Husband, pastor, BFF & one other friend as we have been on this long fertility journey together and so she knew I was going to get a + or another – on my bday.

When do you plan on telling more people? Plan on telling our parents and maybe siblings at 8 weeks which will be just after our first ultrasound and during Easter.. we will probably host an Easter Sunday lunch seeing as we host everything anyways!

How did you tell your partner? I had purchased a little onesie that says ‘love you forever’ when we started TTC in May 2015. I put it in one pocket and the test in my other pocket and walked up to him and gave him the onesie. He just looked at it shocked and when he looked up at me I gave him the test. He had instant tears, it was the best!

Any symptoms yet? Very sore boobs, sore body in general, especially back, not much appetite, wee-ing a lot.

What are you most excited about/for? Our first ultrasound in 21 days – so excited. And telling my parents that they are going to become grandparents, I am so looking forward to that moment.

When is your first appt? Saw my GP and had bloodwork done 2 days ago – waiting for a call with the results. Have my first OB appointment on 12 April.

For fun – Will you be finding out the gender or being team green? – Team Green if we can help it!
