SO EXCITED TO BE HERE!!!!!!!!! I know the risk of miscarriages is highest in the first trimester but after looking at so many negatives tests, I am just so excited to even see a positive because I started to think it may never happen. I’m so excited and I just want to tell everyone around me (which is funny because when we first discussed it, I told Darling Husband that I don’t want anyone to know until after 3 months but all I want to do now is tell people). Darling Husband is still being cautious and wants to wait until the first ultrasound before telling family.
How old are you and partner? 30/28
How far along are you? 5th week (it will be the 6th later this week)
Estimated Due Date? 9/16/2020
What baby # is this? 1
How many cycles trying? 3
When did you get your BFP? Yesterday! 12 DPO (1/12/2020)
Who have you told? All my teammates and 4 of my closest friends.
When do you plan to tell other people? Will probably be telling parents after the first ultrasound and the rest of the family will probably get to know soon after (probably around Easter)
How did you tell your partner? I wanted to wait and do a cute announcement with a mug and a onesie. But I was just too excited and couldn’t hold it in so ended up blurting it out to him soon after I saw the test result.
Any symptoms? Increased appetite, Sensitive nipples, Increased CM, Occasional mild headaches, Mild cramps, and recently occasional Chest tightness (worried about it originally but looked it up to find it was normal and better posture should help with this).
What are you most excited about? All of it! The announcements, discussions, attending classes, daydreaming about the future baby, seeing the sonograms, buying cute baby stuff, decorating the nursery together, getting to see and hold the baby, etc.
When is your first appointment? Still researching obgyns, hope to finalize and call tomorrow to set up an appointment.
Are you planning on finding out the sex? Yes, but we don’t want to tell anyone until AFTER the baby shower (or during) to avoid being gifted gender-specific items.
Anything else? We plan to announce the name only after the baby is born. Want to do an unmedicated water birth (at the hospital) but am keeping my options open to whatever may need to be done at that time to deliver the baby safely. Anyone else considering a water birth and/or unmedicated birth?
I know it’s dumb and I don’t think that people without kids aren’t real adults but Darling Husband and I were talking about how we both feel like real adults now that we are going to be parents lol.
