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!

@Lakermw. I felt some flutters but it comes and goes. I agree, it is the most amazing thing to feel. My daughter got the hiccups a lot and feeling those during my pregnancy was so cute. I felt like that when I was ready to tell my parents. I was so worried about how they will take it as I assumed that they wanted me to wait longer and spend more time with our daughter before trying for another. Even my one grandma said the same thing. I guess that wasn't the case as everyone was very happy for us and hope for a boy but will be happy with what we are blessed with. If your close family member isn't happy for you then that is their loss. I hope they will feel the same as you are towards them. Babies are a gift so who wouldn't be happy.

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!

@Kelliria. Glad to hear that everything is going well and on track. We are always here for anyone that needs to vent and get stuff off their chest as holding it in isn't good. My dad's birthday is on the 11th and my ex is the 7th.
Haven't really had much cravings. Been wanting pickles every now and then and chocolate milk. My lovely husband has found lactose chocolate milk because the regular stuff really bothers me and this stuff doesn't plus I drink the regular lactose milk and I am totally fine. No foods has made me say no to but wanting some spicy foods now and then but no cravings for ice cream or sweets like my first pregnancy where I ate a lot of it.

Hi ladies - so happy to hear all great things from each of you!
Dragonfly - I agree babies are a blessing and most everyone feels that way! I thought I remembered reading you usually don't feel kicks til around 18-20 weeks... so hopefully you feel the kicks soon! That must be one of the weirdest feelings! I cannot wait to feel that! I have a long way to go! lol. I honestly just can't wait to be in 2nd trimester!
Kellira - congrats on your u/s going so well!! Must've been such a relief to see the heartbeat and that's a great number too! Good luck with your interview at Costco! I love Costco - usually go 2-3 times a month lol. I live in New England so they're all over the place!
As for my cravings - I want ALL the chocolate lol. I'm trying to be good and eat fruits, raw unsalted nuts, lean proteins, etc. but it's hard. I even stopped drinking coffee and I'm a HUGE coffee drinker usually, but I know that could possibly be a factor in miscarriage. I know they say you can have up to 200mg of caffeine/coffee a day, but I figure I might as well just omit it if I can and take one more factor off my brain as to what could possibly cause another MC. I know that probably sounds negative and awful, but I've surprisingly been pretty calm this pregnancy so far, although I did just find out only a week ago.

@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.

Dragonfly - so good to hear the u/s went so well. Congrats on your little baby heartbeat. Can't wait to see it myself. I'm going to have the genetic tests done too and find out the gender and the RH factor (I'm negative). We didn't find out last time with Oscar as I wasn't high risk last time - perfect pregnancy at 38. But this time I'm high risk, so we'll have to have a lot more scans and figured we'd probably accidentally find out anyway, so we're going to know this time. I normally like to be surprised, but considering my history - I prefer NO surprises this time around :)

dragonfly23 - 18-20 feels like a lifetime away for me, maybe because I have never gotten past the first trimester? Thank you for the reminder about chocolate - I did know it has caffeine in it, but I'm not sure how much. I will definitely limit it though! I sure hope you're right about you thinking my sweet tooth means its a girl! Yes please! lol.
neomasie - OMG I love love love that onesie! Where did you get it?
Calvingirl - I'll be finding out the sex at 10 weeks and I cannot wait lol. I want to have the room all done up before the baby gets here! And if it's a girl I want it all pink and glitzed up haha.
