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!

And I just have to say how happy and excited I am for all you expecting mamas. I know it seems like it’s taking forever and you can’t wait to hold your lo’s But enjoy the moment. Looking back, the anticipation was all part of the journey and process and I remember those feelings so fondly-now haha.
I can’t wait for you to hold your lo’s for the first time

Hi everyone! Some of you might remember me... Sorry I've been MIA, but my little one is keeping me busy! :) My little rainbow baby boy is going to be 6 months old in less than 2 weeks!! The time flies!

But I have some news... I'm pregnant AGAIN! LOL My husband and I were "busy" haha. We adore our little one so much that we wanted to have another one. My doctor told me to wait at least 3 months postpartum so we did. But not much longer LOL. I just had the first doctor appointment today and the pregnancy was officially confirmed. I am relieved that I saw the heartbeat (all normal) and she had this small, handheld ultrasound device that I've never seen before and I could actually see a TINY baby. She said it's one baby (95% with 5% chance that there might be more than one - but I doubt it). So I'm 9 weeks 3 days pregnant today! I'm still not out of the woods, but I hope that all goes well this time.

Some of you might remember that I started my journey here after I had a miscarriage in March 2017. Since then I had a healthy boy and now I'm doing it all over again - all naturally. So for those who are trying: keep trying, stay positive and never lose hope! :) My little boy brought so much love and joy to our lives after the "storm".

My symptoms are TOTALLY different this time, but I guess all pregnancies are different. I don't have a preference about the gender - as long as it's a healthy and happy baby, I'll be the happiest mom. It'll be hard to have 2 so close, but also nice for their sake, I think. :) It'd be kind of cool to have a little girl for a change, but if it's a boy, it'd be fun, too cause I adore my little boy. But I have a feeling it might be a girl this time - will see if my intuition is correct... I'll be doing all genetic testing in a few weeks too (because I'm "advanced mom" ;)) so for now, I'm not sharing the news with anybody but you. The estimated due date is August 16, 2019 (according to the first date of the last period calculation), but it wasn't given yet officially (I'll have to wait until the full ultrasound).
Please keep your fingers crossed for me and my little bun in the oven!

Hope4rainbowbaby- OMG what great news to read this morning! so happy for you!!! I guess you are more fertile after a baby birth. That is so exciting!!

AFM: I am doing great. Baby boy is very active. DH finally got to feel him move. Tomorrow I have my ultrasound. I have been praying that all measurements and organs will be normal. We are excited and nervous at the same time. I will post pictures once I’m done.

How is everyone else??

@Hope4rainbowbaby - Congratulations!! That is so good to hear. Your little ones will be so close in age together they will be best friends! I can't wait to see your updates for this pregnancy and I hope that everything goes smoothly.

@Beautiful38 - Looking forward to your ultrasound pictures! I'm glad your DH got to feel your little man!

AFM - DH and I are trying to decide when we will start trying again for baby #2. He was a little upset to learn at our birthing class this weekend that we probably wont be able to have sex for 6 weeks after I give birth. We want our kids close together but since I'm 31, we can space them a bit apart. I'm thinking 22-24 months apart would be good but at the same time I'd be happy if we ended up with another baby in the summer of 2020... So then we'd start really trying again in September or October. Since it took 9 months to get pregnant this time we don't want to waste anytime for #2.

Thank you for sharing all the baby pictures everyone! I'm getting excited about labor and birth and finding out if we have a son or daughter. Everything is also getting physically harder at this point so I'm looking forward to a semi return to my regular body. 1 month to go! 4 weeks!! Crazy!!

Hope4rainbowbaby - Congratulations! I'm so impressed with moms that have babies close together. You too, FLamingogirl. Phoebe is one month old now and I'm just coming out of the proverbial woods. Her pregnancy, birth and 1st month was so physically difficult, I can't imagine getting pregnant again anytime soon. The birth amnesia has yet to sink in :) But then again, I'm 43, so pretty sure this is my last one.
I'm sending good thoughts to both of you and envy your house full of babies. I love ours. If I was 10 yrs younger, I'd have a couple more myself.
Everyone - all the baby pictures are SOOO CUUTE!! I'm lactating just looking at them. Phoebe just turned 1 month yesterday and I took this cute photo of her.

Hi Beaut1ful38! Thank you so much and I'm SO happy for you! You're waiting for your little one! And he's an active boy! That's a great sign. My boy was so active and he was born a healthy, joyful boy! I'm sure all the measurements and organs will be fine! I'll be praying for you!

@Rooroo917 - I am super excited! We have a lot of organizing to do before then but we have the essentials ready and I tested out the baby's co-sleeper last night so if he/she arrives will be set for sleeping! Still need to figure out where to put the changing table and how to arrange clothes. DH's schedule changed so now he doesn't work weekends, so we have more time together to sort these things out!

@ calvingirl: THANK YOU so much! :) I know it's going to be a challenge to have 2 babies so close together, but it will also have some benefits. :) And they usually bond so nicely. Congratulations on your little Phoebe! I didn't think that I'd have the 2nd baby and I'm 42! LOL So "never say never" haha! Thank you for the good thoughts!

@ Rooroo917: Thank you so much ! I just have a feeling that it might be a girl, but it's 50/50! LOL I'll be happy if it's another boy, too. But I think it'd be nice to have a girl, too...

I should know not far from now cause I'll be doing genetic testing that can determine the gender. Although, in a way, it might be nice for it to be a surprise this time... What do you all think? The good thing is that we have most of the baby stuff now and I guess I could even use the baby clothes from my boy (at least in the beginning)... But maybe it would be neat to have a different experience of not knowing the gender and finding out at birth...?

@FlamingoGirl13: Oh WOW! 4 weeks left? That's SO exciting! I know it gets more exciting towards the end when the little one is getting ready to welcome the World. :) Please keep us posted! And you still have some time to get organized and some things can be rearranged and changed even after the baby is home. I just made sure to have my hospital bag ready and packed and my birth plan printed out (a few copies so I gave them to the doctor and nurses). And had all the essentials for the baby's arrival, of course. I'm so excited for you! It's so cool to see my friends here PREGNANT and awaiting their babies!

Short update about me: I got the official test result from my doctor's office today stating "POSITIVE". and a note from the doctor that said "Congrats". I am 9 weeks 4 days pregnant today. I feel nauseated at times which is completely different from my previous pregnancy. I get tired and sleepy (that was the same before). I have some wild dreams - some are like movies. Today it was a sci-fi movie dream haha But I had even more vivid dreams the first time and a few times I had a dream about being pregnant or about the gender (I saw a boy a few times which turned out to be true LOL). This time I didn't have anything like that as of now. I have another doctor's appointment with an ultrasound on February 14th (Valentine's Day LOL) and also genetic testing on January 28th with the detailed, dating ultrasound.

Again : to all expecting Mommas!
