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!

@Photomama - Wow!!! Congratulations! I am so beyond happy to see your triplet news! After all this time three babies. I know that multiple pregnancies can be hard and have lots of complications so I am thinking of you and sending lots of good vibes your way and the babies way. Give us an update next time you have a check up. I bet you will be having lots more of those now that you know you are having triplets! Was baby C measuring the same as A & B?
@Beaut1ful38 - You are next up for having a baby right?! I hope all is going well and that you passed that 3 hour glucose test.
AFM - Annika will be 3 weeks old tomorrow! My DH has one more week home with me and then my Mom is taking a week off to help me. After that I will be on my own for 7 weeks until I go back to work. It's been amazing have this much time with DH and Annika. I'm so glad he was able to take off four weeks and it will feel so different when he goes back to work.
Annika is doing well and was 9lbs 5oz at her 2 week check up. They don't need to see her again until she is 2 months old. Unless something comes up of course. I'll be able to weigh her at a Moms group thing at her 1 month point so at least I will know how big she is! After struggling with latch the first week and some nipple break down, we are doing well now. Sometimes she pinches me, but now I know how to pop her off correctly.
I hope everyone is doing well!

Photomama- omg 3 babies what a blessing!!!!
lakarmw- Such a cute precious baby girl!!!
AFM: Its a countdown now!!! I am getting ready. My cousin is planning the baby shower for April.
The baby moves a lot and now instead of little kicks I am getting jabs and feel him rolling across my tummy. He likes to move alot and not let me sleep. Having insomnia. 3rd trimester I 'm getting the early pregnancy symptoms again. Which is normal, plus ooooohh how my breast hurt again and now the nipple/breasts itchiness is coming on stronger. Matter of fact my whole body. Enjoying it while it last. I have my doctors appointment tomorrow. I believe I start to see her every 2 weeks now until I am 36 then every week. March 29th I have my ultrasound with specialist.

Well I was told I have gestational diabetes. I left doctors office with the machine that checks sugar levels. I have to do it 4x a day. Right when I wake up and then 2 hrs after every meal. March 29 is my ultrasound they will measure baby. I just want to know if this means baby will be bigger and will I have him early and c- section or vaginally???

Beaut1ful38 - I had gestational diabetes too, and no, it doesn't mean baby will be too big. My Phoebe was only 5lbs, 13 oz at 37 weeks and that's small for gestational age. What it means is that they will monitor you closely, nag you if your sugars go up, and will have to test the baby every couple of hours with a heel prick after he/she is born for 24 hrs. If baby drops, then they want to keep you more - ugh! So, either BF ALOT after baby comes out - like have her attached as much as possible, or consent to some formula feeding to keep her blood sugar up so they don't keep you there too long. I don't know if you are planning on bf'ing or not. I was going to exclusively bf, but life had other plans and Phoebe gets formula bottles during the day since I can't pump enough to feed her. I found the GD diet they put you on is pretty reasonable - you usually can control your sugars by just avoiding desserts and crappy food. I let them get in my head about it, and I tested obsessively and was so freaked out about it that I was afraid to eat and fainted once. Don't let that happen. Big picture - you and baby are going to be just fine. You are so close to the end anyway, it's not a big deal. Bonus, I kept pretty close to the diet they wanted me on and I didn't gain much pregnancy weight at all - and I felt great. Every time I'd cheat and my sugars would go up, I'd feel like crap - tired and nauseous with a headache. You'll find it's nice to know how to control your energy levels that way. Good luck! Feel free to message me if you have any questions. I was diagnoses at 24 wks, so had it for a looonnnngg time. Felt like forever I was pricking myself.

Lakarmw - she's so gorgeous! Look at that face! I love it. Phoebe is 15 wks tomorrow, and although she likes to be held up so she can see what's going on, she's no where near sitting up. Still a little wee thing. About 11.5lbs now - I'll weigh her tomorrow again and hopefully she'll be up to 12.
Beautiful - So happy for you. Ultra sound is exciting. Make sure and give an update. I think youre the next one.
AFM, I am having a bit of a scare lol. DH and I have not had sex much at all since baby, as you can imagine - too tired and hard to find an opportunity. We finally managed to get some "us" time about 3 days ago. Which was great, but I didn't think about the fact that it was right before ovulation time after my first period (I got that "friend" back last month) and we were...enthusiastically not careful. lol.
So....I'm almost 44, and Phoebe had to be conceived with Femara fertility drugs and BD'ing 6-12 times in the fertile window, so I HIGHLY doubt that we'd get pregnant from that ONE time, but wouldn't that just be a kicker? lol. I'd freak. Definitely don't want any more babies, but I can't take any hormone-based BC because it'll affect my milk supply which sucks anyway. I'm allergic to condoms and we hate them. So we're just gonna try to pay better attention to the calendar for the next year or two till menopause kicks in and I don't have to worry about this anymore. Until then...I'll be holding my breath for the next two weeks. :)
