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!

OMG!! Great news from everyone!
@kelliria - Good luck and hope baby is in your arms now!
@tryingforloss - Congratulations!! So happy baby made it safe and I hope you recover quickly. ICU is a bit scary - hope its a precaution and they move you soon.
@lakarmaw - She's so beautiful!
AFM, I have my last big growth scan on Monday but last appt on Friday, baby is still transverse and seems to be stubbornly stuck there - I'm going to be scheduled for a csection on Dec 18th at 38 wks. She didn't do well on the last NST and my blood sugar numbers are going up daily. Sooo....Monday will tell a lot and I hope she flips head down before the 18th, cuz if she does, they'll let me try an induction instead. Either way, baby girl will be coming in the next 2 1/2 weeks!! I'm so freaked out...not ready.

Oh @Kelliria is gorgeous! Love the big kissy lips! So glad you feel great and the birth went well. Congratulations!
@Rooroo - thanks, yes it's so close. I'm so panicky every moment. Blood sugar isn't super bad, but it's going up on average about 10 pts every week. It's not making her huge or anything because I'm still measuring almost two weeks behind, but we're more worried about blood flow from the placenta. I hope she turns too, but at this point I just want her out and safe.

Kelliria congratulations Teresa is absolutely gorgeous! I hope all is going well.
Calvingirl you have got this! You can do this...not long to go until you have your gorgeous baby in your arms.
All these new babies arriving. How are the still pregnant mama's getting on? Hope you're all feeling ok :)
I am happy to be back in my prepregnancy clothes and feeling great...still leaking but hopefully not too much longer. Little Nancy is doing great she is a good little sleeper. Struggles with a little wind in the evenings but manageable so far. She is a hungry little girl and always eating. She didn't lose any weight by day 5...instead she had gained 4.5oz little fatty and some new born clothes are all ready too small I wish she wouldnt grow so fast...I'll end up broody again. And this is definitely the last one my husband will allow...he's adamant he is going for the snip lol xxx

@Rooroo - Not overstepping at all. Thank you for your kind words. Before Oscar, I was as crunchy as they come. Had a home birth with my first son, and planned a home birth with Oscar. That didn't work out so well, although the care I received was good - it was my placenta that failed me and him. He was born too small and didn't survive the labor. Thank you for understanding my polar opposite swing and need for monitoring. I just don't want that to happen again. I'm 4 yrs older now and 43. It's not like my placenta is gonna work better, you know? The tightrope that the doctors and I are walking is getting her big and strong enough to survive labor and not have any developmental problems, while not waiting too long to hamper her growth. I think the induction/c-section at 38 wks is probably my best compromise. She's been doing well so far. I go in today in 5 hrs for my last growth scan. A lot is riding on this so I'm very nervous and will feel much better after I get the results. Meanwhile, thinking positively, every pregnancy is different and a loss doesn't mean a loss of every baby. It's exceedingly rare, ladies. Plus, my little girl is 10x more active than Oscar was, and they say from what they can see, the placenta is much bigger this time too. The gestational diabetes is actually a good sign, as it's a healthy placenta that produces the hormones that throws your blood sugar out of whack. Thank you for rooting for me. I've had a tough week mentally and I expect the next two weeks I'm going to be holding my breath till she's in my arms. I can't wait to share the good news with all of you.

@beaut1ful38 - a lovely profile pic of baby! I can't believe how nervewracking that must of been at that moment when baby came close...whew! Glad it turned out fine and hope your results are optimal.
@Lakarmw - Thanks. I'm feeling fine. No where near ready to go. No discharge. BH contractions just a couple a day, same as the last two months. She's head down so I have to pee more often and walking induces some major lightning crotch, but my body clearly has 4 more weeks to go (36 weeks today). She's moving a lot though, and on the track to be a 6-7lb baby which is amazing!
Speaking of which, because the plan is still to induce early on Dec 18th (38 wks), I'm hoping my body gets a little more ready in the next two weeks so the induction won't fail. It's my last baby, so I don't care if I have a C-section for myself, but I REALLY want to hold her and bond with her in the first hour. It's about the most important thing to me ever. If I have to wait 1-2 hrs before I get to hold her or nurse her, and she's had her rare awake time with dad and nurses before me, I'll grieve. I don't think I'll believe that she's mine and alive until I get to see her and memorize her face...and a brief glance after they pull her out is not going to be enough for me. It's what I'm most worried about. Sooo....now that she's doing so well, I might be able to talk to Dr. about putting off the induction till Dec 26th (39 wks). My body would probably respond better to induction if I was closer to my due date. My DH wants her out now, but he's had 4 preemies with his 1st wife, so the idea of waiting till full term is alien to him. He thinks NICU is a natural part of childbirth @@ and doesn't put any stock in the "magic hour". His exwife also bottlefed, so getting a good start on breastfeeding is not something he values either. (Mind you, he has 4 kids and 3 are special needs due to their premature birth complications - not something I want to repeat). But he's married to me now, and those things are VERY important to me. I'll accept it if I have to and I know in the long run, it probably won't make a big difference - thousands of moms have babies by C-section every day and still bond with their babies, but I'm going to work my hardest to get her out the normal way. It's become this emotional trigger for me now, and no one says pregnancy hormones have to be logical. Cross your fingers for me ladies!
