Group for the BFPs
Hi, girls! I just wanted to create a group for all the BFPs we have gotten. There have been so many lately and i have gotten to know a lot of you and i don't want to go to another forum. I feel bad talking on other groups about my bfp when others are still trying. So I figured we could talk about things in here too! I am 6w5d today. I have a 2yr old dd and am 39 yrs old. Just starting to get a few symptoms and my eye is twitching out of control. Hope to hear from my other bfp friends!

Hi, ladies! How is everyone doing today? Welcome to the ones i havent talked to yet. I took a few days off. Dd was sick and i was trying not to worry myself sick until the u/s.
Everything went well! I got to see the babe and its heart beat. 155 beats a minute. I am measuring 8w but by lmp 7w5d and they stuck with that. DD set at Dec 9th. They even gave me a 4d picture. I go for genetic and gender blood draw on May 21. I'm so excited to find out if it's a boy or girl. They did a pap and took 7 vials of blood.
I have to read the comments from the last few pages to get caught up but I'll catch back up today. Also, have a job interview at Costco at 330. Say a prayer for me. I have been a stay at home mom since my dd was born 2 yrs ago but now i have to sadly go back to the working world with #2 on the way.
Thank you all for the upbeat words when i was worried. They got me through without breaking down and going to the er. You ladies are my biggest support right now!

@BB2018. Well, 18-20 isn't that far away. You will get to feel the little kicks and pokes soon; it's an amazing feeling. It was one thing I enjoyed about my previous pregnancy. I know this may sound crazy but I honestly think you are having a girl because of all the sweets you are wanting and how calm you are as I was super calm with my daughter. Remember, chocolate has caffeine in it so you will have to limit your intake on that. I drink a medium coffee at work in the morning and that's it and then I'm on to water. On the weekend, I only have one cup (standard size- 2 cup) and that's it. I sometimes but rarely treat myself to pop; besides ginger ale. I don't think you cutting it out all together is negative as you do what's best for you and your baby.

@BB2018. I hope your ultrasound goes well and you will get to see the little bean and heartbeat. When I announced my first pregnancy, I took the poem, I'm not alone and I wrote it out and then attached my ultrasound picture. I really enjoyed the poem. Maybe you can use that one. The one I am about to post is a little long and I just hope people don't think it's a joke as I would never do something like that. It's just wrong in my books but the post itself is cute. I have my doctor's appointment on Monday morning and then my next ultrasound is on May 28th which makes it seem so far away. I just hope everything is progressing smoothly and that the baby is growing on schedule.

BB2018 your definitely right about your boyfriends 13 year old being a second mummy, I was to my half sisters (twins) when they came a long when I was almost 11, she will love having a baby brother or sister to look after, she will also be very handy for baby sitting duties in a few years too! Your announcement ideas sound lovely chriatmas/new year baby sounds brilliant, such a magical time of year. I'm like you I will be announcing once I have my 12 week scan too, I'm getting such a belly, it's usually pretty flat so it's obvious (maybe because it's number 3) I'm so glad I only have just over 1 more week of hiding under big jumpers and scarves. I have my 12 week scan on Friday the 11th too, so I am literally wishing away time from now until then as I'm sure you are too :) xxx

I found first time around I did bloat loads until around 9/10 week then panicked when it went away then came back around 15 weeks. Second time and I'm guessing the same again I just went straight from bloated to bump and no in between. I'm feeling massive at the moment :( I think my tummy muscles have just given up. I've not been able to wear jeans since 5 weeks either. This was at 8 weeks 5 days I know it's not baby as they're only about 3cm xxx

@BB2018 I have my first dating scan tomorrow morning! I'll be 8w6d so I'm super curious to see what they date me at. My bloating around the 5/6 week mark was INSANE. Even 7 weeks. It's just in the last week or so it's finally started to come back down. I haven't had to break out my maternity pants yet but I can feel some extra internal pressure when my beltline is pushing on my abdomen.
@dragonfly23 I was soo curious to see how your bump was progressing with this 2nd baby! I need to make it through my SIL's wedding at 10/11 weeks before I get a bump. Lol

Congratulations 4thBaby! Welcome.
@BB2018 - I have my ultrasound on the 16th, and I can't wait. Your baby bump is identical to mine, unfortunately I haven't taken a pic yet. But bloated completely, and upper stomach pushing out a lot. I didn't get very big with Oscar in 2015, but he was underweight, so I'm hoping to be huge this time! I want a healthy big baby!
I agree with you, BB2018, that every pregnancy is a life that should be cherished from the moment we love it, so I tell anyone I want when I want. I'll probably tell my employer after my 8wk scan to give them notice for planning when I'm out on leave. I'll wait till June/July for the facebook announcement, but that'll really only be for people I'm not close to anyway.
I've told parents and sisters so far, but I'll be telling my kids on the 12th. I have one son who turns 21 on Saturday, and we're going to a concert/beer fest and he's going to wonder why I'm D-Driver when I love beer. So I have to tell him that day. My husband and I have custody of his four kids (my stepkids), ages 18, 16, 14, and 8 - and they have been bugging me about when I'm going to grow them a new brother or sister again, so I'm very excited to tell them. But still scared, because if something happens, they'll take it hard. This still gives me a few weeks though. If I have any bad signs, I'll reevaluate.
