I’m major early days right now but I just need somewhere to commiserate and chat! 🙂
How old are you and partner? 27/30
How far along are you? 3+2
Estimated Due Date? November 18
What baby # is this? 1
How many cycles trying? I’m in shock that we got it on try #1. We have been doing pull out for over a year and part of me was paranoid since we hadn’t had a woopsie that we would struggle.
When did you get your BFP? Last night after work on 9dpo! I was amazed that it wasn’t even a squinter on a FRER, the line was very clear to see.
Who have you told? Just my older sister. My husband left yesterday for a work trip and get’s home tonight. I currently have stuff on the table upstairs for him to walk in the house to see. I’m so excited/nervous to tell him! I wanted to tell him in person as opposed to over the phone. I think we both didn’t expect it so soon. He will be floored and maybe proud. hahaha
When do you plan to tell other people? I want to wait to officially miss my period before I tell anyone else. I will for sure tell my parents and brother within the next week or so because I am very close with them. Extended family not until after first appointment at least. A few close friends I may tell in a week or so too.
How did you tell your partner? Telling him tonight <3
Any symptoms? YES! Which i’m shocked about. Yesterday I woke up with terrible trapped gas pains. Too Much Information but when i’m gassy, i’m gassy… it’s not trapped. I was doubled over in the bathroom with gas pains or like diarrhea pains without the dirrhea. It was very weird and not a normal issue that I have. Thankfully that is gone today. Also yesterday I felt my boobs getting progresively bigger and more sore throughout the day. Excessive thirst. I am having cramps but it’s more of a pinch feeling as opposed to a dull AF cramp. Interestingly– my CM is completely dry unless I do an internal check. That was a huge tip off for me as I usually always have some. I know people say increased CM was a symptom for them… well for me it was NO CM was the symptom. All of these symptoms led me to test yesterday after work.
What are you most excited about? Just becoming a Mom and seeing my husband become a father. I’m ready for this next phase in life.
When is your first appointment? April 14
Are you planning on finding out the sex? We are undecided right now!
Anything else? If it helps anyone TTC to know who may be reading these boards– We hit O-4 and O-2 leading up to my BFP 🙂

Yay for fellow November mamas roll calling. Fingers crossed for all of us and our sticky beans! ♥️ I keep looking at my tests to make sure I wasn’t hallucinating all of this 😂. Still feels so unreal. My husband was shocked. We both didn’t expect try #1 to work. Although he said when I texted him about an upset stomach on Thursday that part of him thought maybe I was pregnant. Clearly he was right!

So, this is our first pregnancy. Got the positive on Friday and I’ve continued to test each morning and line continues to be steady or get darker. On Monday 3/9 I will be 4 weeks along exactly.
My question is: who are you telling this early on? I wouldn’t mind telling our mothers, for instance, but it still just seems so new and i feel worried, that I’m wondering if i should wait to tell them, until like maybe the first Dr Appt? (I don’t have one yet but plan to call tomorrow, and I see you normally go in between 8-10 weeks so I’m looking at mid-April). Thoughts?

This is our first pregnancy as well. I’ve already told my sister because I can’t keep anything from her. I was also planning on telling my parents tonight. I figure that if anything *did* happen, I’m emotionally close to both of them and would likely want to talk about it anyways. We are telling my husbands parents and sister closer to the 6 week mark. For sure no social media presence about it until 12+ weeks. I will probably tell my best friends aroubd 6 weeks as well. I think it’s all what you’re comfortable with and who you’re okay telling god forbid something happened. Talking about things makes me feel better, so I figure I would need the emotional support. Not gonna lie tho, I have been continuing to use my cheap pregmate strips since finding out to confirm the lines have gotten darker.

I have been using my pregmates too every day to watch the line get darker! I finally didn’t this morning, but I’m going to at 5, 6, and 7 weeks just to keep myself from going too crazy!
Post # 15
Thank you, that’s a really good point. I guess I’m still in so much disbelief I can barely believe I’m pregnant and I feel like it could all go away any minute like it was just a dream!
