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!

@Lakarmw - I'm 26 weeks and 1 day! I'll be in my third trimester Thanksgiving (US) week. I love the size of my bump right now and getting to feel all the movement. Sometimes baby is super active. I also started prenatal yoga to help with strength and stretching. Did your other children come on time or were they early?

Oh it's a lovely stage to be at flamingogirl13 I loved having a lovely reasonable size bump, it's only these last few weeks it starts to be so heavy and in the way. Not long at all until your on the final count down too! Unfortunately my other two children didn't make an early appearance...my daughter's waters broke on her due date and I didn't go into labour so they induced me with a drip and she arrived 2 days later. My son was born 7 days late naturally....so it's not likely our little one will arrive early, but I'd love it if they surprised me...even by just beinging on time. But obviously the most important thing is they arrive healthy

Hey ladies have been MIA. I thought i talk here as its hard to talk to family about this issue as some have there own opinions.
Well DR called us in yesterday was so nervous the past 2 days. But we received news we didnt expect....the DNA genetic blood work came back showing positive for DOwn Syndrome as she was talking i went blank after a few minutes i broke down. Hubby stayed calm till she left room and she said you can stay here as lomg as you like he finally broke down. We cried and cried and after all that we talked. We have to see a gentic conselor now and do a (I believe) level something ultrasound and from there decide to do the amino testing. I have dome my google and am soooo scared about that test. There is positive and negative reviews. I dont know what to do!!!! My hubby wants to kove forward with test because we both believe in the power of prayer. The Lord above does work Miracles. Has anyone done this test before? Im scared of a miscarriage as after test you have to be on rest for 24-72 hrs on how you feel. Im in tears agaim as im writing this. Please let my baby BOY be healthy!! Its a boy!!

@Rooroo917 - so glad you got a good strong HB and some answers. Placenta almost always moves up as you go along, so hopefully the spotting will stop soon.
@Lakarmw - Can't believe you're so close! How exciting! I didn't find out gender my first two pregnancies either. This time we decided to find out because we were going to get SO many scans, we were bound to see it. This way, we got to experience a gender reveal, so something different. I loved finding out at birth though. My first son was born on his due date, and my second was a week late. Everyone in my family goes late, so I know the agony of waiting. Very excited for you.
@Kelliria - I'm starting my NSTs next week too at 33 wks. I've never done one before. Are they a big pain? I'm also getting induced at 39 wks if she passes all her NSTs. Hoping to get her to 39 wks, but I'll be happy if she gets to 37. Good luck and hope baby does well!
@Trying - Baby has dropped! Great pics too. It's so exciting getting into the last month. I can't wait till mine is out! But after a loss, just to have baby in your arms is the ultimate goal.
@Flamingogirl - Great pic and good for you for voting! I did too. :)
@Mrsdeedee - Welcome and congratulations on your new little bean! July is a great month. The last bit will be kinda hot, but your child will be able to have pool parties and do fun summer stuff for his/her birthday!
AFM, I just had my 32 wk growth scan and she's holding steady at 23th percentile. She was 25th last time, but it's within a margin of error. I just don't want her to drop down to 10th percentile - that's IUGR. I just need her strong enough and healthy enough to withstand labor and delivery, as I don't want a scheduled C-section if I can help it. We make small babies, so I'm not surprised. But I have gestational diabetes and apparently that's making NO difference in her size whatsoever. New doctor is really nice and accommodating, while still seems to know what she's doing. Answered all my questions. If Baby girl fails a NST and a following bio physical profile scan, then they'll get her out early. Right now, she's about 3 1/2 lbs so I need her to get bigger! However, she's super cute. This was the first time we got a good picture of her face and she looks like her brother Oscar, except more feminine. Idk if that's in my head though...either way, I can't wait to meet her. Induction is planned for the day after Christmas!

Beaut1ful38 I am so so sorry to hear the news you had....I would definitely go for the further testing so you know.....the amino test....id says from experience don't do it :( if you're in the UK there is a test you can pay £200 for privately to avoid the needle drawing fluid...the NHS for some reason don't offer it, but it is due to expense but it is just as reliable as the amino test without the risk, this is what I would do. I have a half brother who is currently 15...from my dad's second marriage, his mum was 38 when she had him so needed the extra downs test. When they put the needle into my step mum's uterus my little brother punched the needle...he has only a thumb on one of his hands, as it resulted in his hand not developing properly. He has dealt with it like a trooper over his life...but not the best outcome. Obviously this was a highly unlikely outcome but that's my only experience with it.
So glad to hear all is progressing well Calvingirl....my daughter was born on the 23rd centile...she's onkykn the 2nd now for her height hehe she's dirty and her younger brother is taller but she is perfectly growing and very cute xxx

Hi ladies, I may be joining you in the next few days. I’ve gotten several light positives yesterday night and this morning. Yesterday morning was negative. I’ll get a beta draw today to see what’s going on they’re soo faint but def there! I really did not want to test this morning I was so scared last nights tests were negative/imagined, but nope, still very light positive line!

@Calvingirl, thank you very much! I love that ultrasound pic!! She looks beautiful:) one of mine got IUGR and they induced me at 35 weeks and grew like a weed after that. Hope all turns out well for you!
@ photomama I def see the lines on your tests, they look like positives to me!!! Make sure you let us know how the testing turns out!!

@Beaut1ful38 - Like Roo said, your boy may not have down syndrome. You don't know 100% yet that he does. Lots of babies test positive some percentage and then turn out perfectly normal. If you feel in your heart that it's right to move on with the testing then that it what you should do. The ultrasound might show no sign of Down Syndrome. I'll be praying for you and your little boy.
