Question, are any of you 35+? I’m 35.5 (lol those half years start to matter) and I’m wondering if I should ask for anything extra and specific at the first OB appointment. Like testing my progesterone levels in the pregnancy blood test, so that if I do have a miscarriage (🤞🏼 please no 🤞🏼) we could know if my levels were too low, for next time.
I told my SO last night – he was so confused, lol. “Already?!” But super excited. We’re both previously divorced, no kids but have always wanted them, so it’s been a long time coming.
thank you!!! 😊 Congrats to you as well!
hugs, I’m sorry you’re stressing. Dilution is a powerful thing. I drink a lot of water in general and I was testing OPKs 3-4 times a day during my expected ovulation this cycle, and I never got a full positive…. but obviously I did ovulate! I’ll be thinking about you xoxox

thank you!! I’m not stressing as much as I was, but appreciate your thoughtfulness.
I’m 34.5, so not far from 35. I haven’t thought to ask the OB anything else to test. I figured if she had concerns, she’d let me know. I have a daughter from my previous marriage, she’ll be almost 9 by the time baby arrives. She’s an October birthday, too!

glad you’re feeling better! Yeah I guess I will just wait to see what my OB says.
I spent so much mental energy just thinking about how to get pregnant and assuming it would take forever, that now that it’s happened, I don’t know what to do next! I’ve been googling a bunch of variations of “what to do when find out pregnant” all day, lol. Make a doctor appointment, keep being healthy, keep taking prenatals…. that’s about as far as I’ve gotten 😜

my lines are all over the place too. I’ve just decided not to worry about it.
I think my EDD will be Oct. 1! Hi ladies! I’m too tired to do the roll call now haha.

I’ve only taken a couple Internet cheapies and no more FRERs since the first one, but I was so glad to see today’s test (48 hours later) darkened up a lot!
Anyone told their families yet? I’m really close with mine so I called my parents and my sister yesterday. I figure if I do have a Mc, I would want them to know anyway, and for now sharing the news with them was really special ❤️

have you tested again? update us!
congratulations! Sounds like you were very lucky on your first shot!!
congrats and welcome!
Wow I had been off here for a few days and so excited to see a few more join the group!! Looks like a few of us are in our early to mid 30s too and prob all had the same concerns about how quickly it would happen for us. GO US! LOL
Update from me: We told our parents and I told 2 friends. I felt more comfortable after my period date (Saturday) passed without signs of AF especially since my very first pregnancy was a chemical. Today I am 4+2 and pretty excited about that! I do have occasional periods of cramping that get pretty close to what my period cramps are and it sketches me out so much but from what I *remember* in my first pregnancy it’s totally normal.
Would love to see more test line progressions, I will post mine in a min.

Okay let’s see if I remember….from L to R:
9DPO (PM), 10DPO (AM), 11DPO (FRER), 12DPO, 13DPO, 14DPO (mid-day), 15 DPO
Haven’t tested since Saturday but I have 2 tests left (including another FRER) so I probably will this week

OOOh your last test line is SO dark!!!

Hi everyone! Joining the party. 🙂 Apparently it’s a trend to get pregnant really fast with an Oct. baby?! Here’s my roll call!
Age/partner’s age: 27/30
Baby # 2
Cycles TTC 1 or 2? I had my IUD out last cycle, and I’m pretty sure I missed my window, so that would make it 1 cycle. But I wasn’t charting (we were just NTNP!), so I’m not sure!
BFP story I actually got a negative test this month at the time when I usually test, so I had written it off. Lo and behold I tried again closer to when AF was due, just in case, and I was wrong!!
How many weeks / EDD? LMP was Dec. 27 so Oct 3?
Team Green or finding out the sex? I was team Green last time but I am leaning toward finding out this time. Still not sure!
When are you telling people? Any special plans in doing so? Hubby knows, but the rest of the world probably not until after the 12wk ultrasound. Maybe my parents and other close ones we’ll tell after the first appointment with a good heartbeat.
Are we going to do a secret Facebook group? Did this last time around with the girls on the Bee who were all due when my 1st baby was, and it was amazing. We still talk about our crazy toddlers, lol. If someone makes one, count me in!
Post # 26
Congrats! And YES to the facebook group, I am also in one for my daughter’s birth month and I love it 🙂 I thought I would create something when more people start rolling in as the month progresses, but I can start it sooner if you all are interested…
Anyone having symptoms yet? I’m having cramping (at times pretty strong), and I am randomly very chilled….and then getting awful night sweats. Washing my sheets right now, yuck. I didn’t have this with my first so it feels very strange to me.
Post # 27
I haven’t roll called yet because I haven’t even told my husband about the bfp (going to tell him tomorrow at 12dpo)! But I wanted to ask about your cramps as I’ve been getting them too. I’ve heard it’s normal but it’s making me a bit nervous! How many dpo are you?
Post # 28
congrats!!! Ive been having them since last week around 12DPO now I’m 4+3 or 18DPO and they still come almost every day but dont last all day. Maybe for 1-2 hours. I remember having them in my first pregnancy too. It’s a scary feeling though since it feels exactly like AF!

Zemira : krystalite :
congrats lady! I’ve been having some dull cramps off and on too. I’m 16 dpo today. I googled the cramps and it sounds like it’s just your organs kind of shifting around and your uterus starting to stretch. Unless it’s accompanied by bright red bleeding, it’s all good.
My other main symptom is just this constant bloating / pressure feeling in my stomach and uterus. Kind of unpleasant, but of course I’m also happy to be feeling it 🙂 Oh and I’m falling asleep on the couch at like 9-9:30 every night.

No rush! Just count me in whenever you make one! 🙂 🙂
A few symptoms over here, nothing major. Super tired after like 9pm, a bit queasy mornings and evenings, and my Super Nose Powers have returned, haha. Just like last pregnancy I can smell things from rooms away!
