How far along are you? 5 weeks 1 day

What’s your estimated due date: Oct. 1st

How many cycles trying? 4

When did you get your BFP? Very faint one on the January 19th (10DPO), I wasn’t even sure it was really there. Took a FRER on the 20th and it was positive. 

Who have you told? Just my husband

When do you plan on telling more people? We will probably tell immediate family and close friends around 8 weeks (my husband is chomping at the bit). As far as everyone else… I’d like to wait until at least 12 weeks, but will probably just come out whenever it does.

How did you tell your partner? I went and bought a baby outfit, wrapped it, and told him I had an early valentines day present that he needed to open now.

Any symptoms yet? fatigue has been my big one. Some nausea, cramps, and cravings/aversions.

What are you most excited about/for? To hold a happy and healthy baby. I have some pretty big risk factors with my pregnancy like potential ectopic to due medical history and pre-term labor. I just want to hold this little one and know that they are ok.

When is your first appt? I had blood draws last week to test my hCG. My doctors office should be calling tomorrow with the next steps (likely early ultrasound due to my history again). As far as when that will happen or when I will see the actual doctor I am not sure yet.

Will you be finding out the sex or being team green? I have no patience. We’ll be finding out. I guess I haven’t discussed this part with my husband, but I am pretty sure he’d be fine with whatever I choose.

How far along are you? 4 weeks 6 days

What’s your estimated due date: Oct. 3rd

How many cycles trying? 18, 6 months at fertility clinic, 5 IUIs. I have one scarred tube and my husband has poor morphology.

When did you get your BFP? At 3 weeks, 4 days

Who have you told? DH, my parents, my sisters, a few close friends & my boss. I’ve had a CP in November after my 4th IUI & took it really hard. I found out while I was at work, so my boss asked me what was wrong & he was incredibly supportive. Since I’m going to have 1-2 doctors appointments a week at my fertility specialist through week 8 I decided to get it over with and let him know so I didnt have to make up excuses each time.

When do you plan on telling more people? Between 12-16 weeks. We’re building a house and expect to move in sometime in April. I’d like to announce that we’re expecting in our baby’s new room if possible. 

How did you tell your partner? I made him look at my internet cheapie test to tell me if he saw a line. He said he sort of kind of could, so I made my sister (who we’re living with while we build) take a look and she said she definitely saw something. Took like 4 more tests over the next 12 hours & told my husband I felt confident  enough to “call it” the next day. 

Any symptoms yet? Sore boobs, waking up every single night in between 1-3 with nausea, fatigue, can’t eat fried food without getting sick, some lower back pain.

What are you most excited about/for? Finally having a baby with my husband. Not having to go to all these fertility appointments for monitoring and IUIs each month will be incredible too!

When is your first appt? I had my betas drawn on Wednesday & Friday. 382 on Wednesday & 757 on Friday, so doubling every 48.6 hours. I have my next beta and first ultrasound this coming Friday when I’ll be 5 weeks, 4 days to check for a gestational sac, then checking for the heartbeat the following week. I’ll be discharged to my regular OB at week 8 assuming all goes well.

Will you be finding out the sex or being team green? Definitely finding out!

Yay! I’m glad to have this thread since I haven’t told many people and I think this might help me hold out a few more weeks.

How far along are you? 4 weeks tomorrow

What’s your estimated due date?  October 10th

How many cycles trying? 5

When did you get your bfp? At 3 weeks,1 day. Super early.  

Who have you told? My husband and little sister who is 7 weeks along. 

When do you plan on telling more? We’ll likely tell our parents and rest of our siblings around 6 weeks (Valentines Day)and some close friends after our 8 week ultrasound. Everyone else around 12 weeks.

How did you tell your partner? He had made me a delicious dinner and margarita, we went to “cheers” and I told him I wouldn’t be drinking it.

Any symptoms yet? I’ve never believed in super early symptoms, but at just before three weeks I started feeling very strange, burpy and indigestion.  I’ve had a lot of spring and mild cramps and definitely fatigued.

What are you may excited about?  I can’t wait for our first ultrasound.  I had a chemical in Nov. So I’ve been very nervous.  I’m really excited about being pregnant at the same time as my sister. Our babies will be a month apart! Seeing my husband become a dad. 

First appointment:8 weeks-March 2nd.

Will you be finding out the sex or being team green: team green!
