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!

Well they measured spine, bladder, saw heart and all 4 chambers, measured head, leg and arm bones. All was good. Then we came to the foot and it shows “sandalfoot” and he said that is a sign on DS, (soft maker) that is all he saw. Baby is 5oz and measuring 15weeks 6 days he said a little big but right on point. What do yall think? DH and i have decided to do the amino test which will be monday Dec 3rd. Scared but i feel like if that is all he saw then just maybe baby is healthy. What do you think???

@ beautiful so everything else came back good and normal measurements except the sandalfoot gap? The amniocentesis will def give you all the answers you need and it covers alot more than just downs. We have ours on Dec 10th. He sounds like a big boy to me!! None of my kids were that big at that gestation, sounds like he is healthy and doing well.

Hi, all! Beaut1ful, i am glad it is only the 1 soft marker and everything else is ok. I hope the amnio goes well for you. You will have your answers soon.
I had my sweep yesterday am and had contraction all day. They have subsided since i woke up. I also bled quite a bit since i woke up. Bloody show im guessing but the sweep probably brought it on. Just for fun, i went and done acupuncture last night. I'm hoping it will jumpstart labor even more.

@rooroo917 - Congrats on a girl! Definitely the year of the Woman! When I was pregnant with Oscar, everyone was having a boy, and now I'm pregnant with (probably Phoebe), we've had a lot of girls in the group. Don't get me wrong, I love boys! However, this will be my first girl and I'm very excited.
@kelliria - So glad everything has gone well so far and the fact we've had no updates today, I'm hoping means you are giving birth as I type! Smooth sailing wishes to you!
@Beautiful38 - Did you get the NIPT test? I can't remember. Sometimes insurance doesn't cover it - mine didn't, but they gave me a non-insurance price of only a couple hundred and it's less risky than the amnio if you are really nervous. I have a feeling baby is just fine! Two of my sisters had soft markers for their sons and neither ended up with Downs or any other genetic problems. Good luck!
AFM, I'm 35+2wks and feel the basics. Super tired. Struggling with blood sugar, which makes me more tired. Cranky. Bitchy. No patience with my stepkids - I feel so bad about it, I hide half the time in the bedroom so I don't freak out about non-important things...like my 17 yr old stepdaughter who (no matter how often I tell her) puts the dishes away in the wrong place and doesn't wipe down the counters and leaves random dirty silverware all over the place - not checking for them before starting the washer. I should (and normally am) just grateful she does her chore uncomplainingly every night and unloads and loads the dishwasher after dinner. I usually go behind her and do the little things that make me feel the kitchen is clean, you know? Now I'm too tired to do it and she's not used to doing all the extra stuff, so I just get angry - but I'm more angry at myself that I don't have any energy and I'm a control freak. DH is helping cook more often, but he's such a messy cook! He leaves food and crap everywhere!! Never puts anything away. I'm trying to learn to step away from my controlling/nesting urges and appreciate my family trying to help me rest. It'll be easier when I have a baby in arms to distract me, but right now, I'm just a blimp that can't move lol.
