HC_IC721 : Thank you for starting this board! I would have, but I’m manaigng the March 2018 POAS board so it would have been a lot to keep up with!
How far along are you? 3w4d, LMP 2/3
Estimated due date? I’ve got different apps saying different things. But Somewhere around Nov 9-12?
What # baby is this for you? Assuming all goes well,it’ll be our first!
How many cycles trying? We started trying initially April 2017 after having my IUD removed a month before. Got pregnant that cycle but it was ectopic. Took 12 weeks for that to resolve. So we had been trying again for 7 cycles before BFP. But since we started it’s been about 10 months.
When did you get your BFP? Yesterday! The first time I waited until 11dpo to test!
Who have you told? Darling Husband, my best friend, Darling Husband told his best friend, and the bees!
When do you plan to tell other people? Planning to keep it secret until mid April. Maybe announce to family around DH’s birthday on 4/13 and make a social media announcement the next week.
How did you tell your partner? I had a box put together for a while. Bought The Expectant Father months ago, made a onesie that says “worth the wait” on it. And a small print I designed on my iPad and ordered that has to do with a video game we play together.
Any symptoms? Not really. I felt like I was going to vomit yesterday during the day, but I think that was mostly related to the nerves/anxiety/excited about getting a BFP. And have a random episode of dizziness last night while we were hanging out watching The Office (dehydrated maybe?)
What are you most excited about? To finally experience pregnancy!
When is your first appointment? I had my first beta today. Will do a repeat Friday. Then I guess maybe Monday I’ll get the first appointment sorted out if everything looks good.
Are you planning to find out the gender? Yes, but I want to wait until the anatomy scan. I think I’ll like having a while of not knowing and we already have names chosen so it’s not like knowing 6 weeks earlier will help us out there.
Congrats to everyone! I hope we all have healthy, uneventful pregnancies!
