Group for the BFPs

View Full Post

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!

@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!

@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.

Lakarmw, yea! I am so happy for you! Im getting my sweep on nov 27th around 38wks. Trying for a nov 29th baby but induced on the 2nd. Have you had a sweep before? I did 2xs with dd and no luck. The 1st dr was rough and it really hurt, the second dr was great and i hardly felt it at all. I hope it works out all right for you. 7lbs is a good weight!

Beaut1ful, I'm sorry you have to go through the stress of your baby and the test results. I know several women who had positive results for the genetic testing and their baby was perfectly healthy. They did the invasive test and it came out good. One friend opted out for it and the u/s came back ok. It would be scary at first but downs babies are so sweet and loveable. I used to work with them. Praying for you and your family and all the decisions you have to make. Just breathe. God has this!

Mrs DeeDee and photomama, congrats! So happy to see more babies! There is nothing like a ray of sunshine to brighten the horrible things happening in this world. I love to see the excitement that pours out of posts. Can't wait to see your progressions in the upcoming months.
