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!

Tryingafteraloss, she is precious! Im glad you are getting along good.
Im doing great. Reese is gaining a lot of weight. In 3 wks she gained 3 lbs. In 5 wks she has gained from 6lbs 12oz (the day we brought her home? to 11lbs (5wk checkup). That's the 34% to 80%. Also she has got 3in taller in those 5wks. She's a great baby and sleeps so much still. I'd say she's up maybe 3 hrs a day.

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!!

@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!

@Beaut1ful38 Yipeeeee! How exciting! There's nothing better than seeing the little one! I'm SO happy that he's growing so well! And at times babies "hide" from the ultrasound.My boy (previous pregnancy) was also kicking the nurses whenever they were touching my belly haha!
But that's wonderful news that all the organs are developing well and are fine! Praying all continues to be FANTASTIC! It will be! I can see his face!! He'll probably "relocate" soon to the position with his head down. But I know it can be hurting your rib now! LOL I remember that I had difficulty breathing at times when my little boy was pressing on my lungs. But once he turned around (I definitely felt the process! LOL), the breathing got better, but the pressure on the pelvic area got worse haha! But I remember it all so fondly now. It's such a special time! Enjoy every second of it!:)
@Lakarmw: You sound BUSY! LOL I hope you're feeling better after the knee surgery. You have a precious little girl! Nancy is so cute! I have a 6 month old (in 2 days) little boy AND I'm 11 weeks pregnant (tomorrow)! LOL So I think I'll be joining the "busy mommies gang" haha!
Isn't it just amazing when they smile and especially when they start to giggle? It just makes my hubby and I so happy! It's the best! Little Nancy looks like such a joyful little girl! My little boy has his pediatrician appointment tomorrow and I'm SO curious to find out how much he weighs and how tall he is! He seems to be growing a lot and fast!
UPDATE from me: I'm having an ultrasound (very detailed one when they're gonna measure everything and check all the organs, too) and also genetic testing (due to my age) this Monday. This always makes me both nervous and excited. I already saw my baby on a small hand-held ultrasound device my OBGYN had at my recent appointment (never saw this gadget before but it was cool - it looked like an old style flip phone and it was showing an ultrasound when close to my belly!). So I could see that the heartbeat was fine and that the baby was there. :) But now, it's gonna be more detailed. Last time I was pregnant and did the genetic testing, they asked me if I wanted to know the gender because they can determine that via blood testing. I wanted to know then, but now, I'm sort of wondering if I should make it a surprise for my hubby and for myself, too and find out at the birth... What do you think?
Looking forward to follow the news from all mommies and mommies-to-be!
