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!

@Skellynet190 - You are so close! I hope your induction goes smoothly and that you are holding your baby in your arms in no time! I'm so excited for you. You've waited so long for this little one and soon they will be here.

Hi ladies! I'm sorry it's been so long for the update - so long I had to scroll back a bunch of pages and find out what my last post was. Apparently it was the night before everything happened.

So....Right after I posted about my anxiety about her NST, I called the doctor and INSISTED on coming in and getting her fluid levels tested again. I was just too worried. Her movements had changed, and I needed to make sure she was ok. I got the GOOD doctor this time, this Russian doctor that could barely speak English but had been practising for ages and knew what I was going through. She didn't even do the test, just looked at the results of the last NST, said excuse me and came back and told us I'd be induced THAT DAY. She sent DH and I to the hospital that afternoon and we started her induction.

It took two days of the cytotec, then a foley bulb, then a version to get her moved out of my hip bone (she WAS stuck and had low fluids, but they managed to get her in place) then pitocin for a day. Her heartrate stayed optimum so they just let me keep on going. I had an epidural, but it didn't work very well so I still felt at least 50% of the pain, and could still move around and stuff. After 32 hrs stuck at 4cm, I had resigned myself to a c-section in the morning and just laid back and slept to recoup before the call would be made. 2 hrs they woke me up because of the monitor, and checked me - I was at 10cm. Started pushing and she came out 10 minutes later!!

Phoebe Elizabeth was born on Dec 13th at 631am, the same day as her big sister, my stepdaughter - so the two sisters share a birthday! She was 37wks, 2 days and weighed 5lbs, 13ozs, 20 inc long. Perfect - no complications besides some birth canal bruising and scrapes. She passed all her blood sugar tests in the first day and we were able to go home by the 15th.

But...it's been total anxiety with such a small baby, getting nursing established and stuff. I've been swamped and am just now getting some sleep. She's doing great though, and only lost 3 ozs in the first couple of days and isn't losing anything now. My milk finally came in and she's nursing like a champ - a prizefigher actually as it's quite painful!! I'm trying to push through. She's adorable and so sweet in her little awake moments, and I missed nursing so much - I can't wait till it stops hurting. I know the first two weeks are always an adjustment. I'm doing fine and recovered pretty quick actually - no tears and not even any soreness after a day or two.

Here's a one day old pic of my sweet girl -

@Calvingirl- !!! I was waiting for you to post your big news (I noticed on CMP). I'm so happy for you and little Pheobe. I hope this holiday season is as relaxing as you can make it with a newborn. If the breast feeeding is hurting you to much don't hesitate to go see a lactation expert. They can help a ton. So happy for you and your family!

Rooroo917- i am doing great! Baby moves alot and his punches and kicks are getting stronger. Started last week taken calcium to help with baby and i bones. I have not received test results back from amino test, the first one i did which she says show TS21 which i just feel like its a bloodwork. They did 3 specimen test results. I am still hopeful that results will come back false positive but we are still ok with either way. Jan 4th i go in for baby measurements on organs and heart..

Thanks for making the group! I just got my BFP last week. 4 weeks and 3 days today. I know, not far at all. Had my first BETA/HCG test on 12/17/18 and it was 141. Second one was today and I'm still waiting for the results. I am 33. I suffered from a blighted ovum in December 2014 - January 2015. We then fell pregnant again in March 2015 and had our beautiful baby boy, Colton, on 12/16/15. I can't believe he is 3 already! Hoping this blood result is good and we can get an ultrasound at 6 weeks. Hope to chat with you all on the sister site. I love these sites back then and am hoping to make new friends this time around as well!
