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!

Hey ladies! Rooroo omg your getting close!!
I can’t believe Elijah is 1 month already. This has flew by fast. Is it just me but I still have baby fever and miss my pregnant belly. Like I am ready to get pregnant again. Maybe it’s my hormones just wanting sex other than that we are doing great. Elijah starts ECI in June. We have to see a speech therapist bc feeding has become a little struggle. He still can’t latch on so I’m exclusively pumping and trying to maintain my milk supply! Any suggestions on what I can take to help maintain my milk (pumps are getting down to 2oz) I can only get 10oz a day now. It making me stress bc all I want to do is breastfeed but without him latching to stimulate my boobs for milk it’s hard. I’m only relying on pump. Which my lactation specialist made me a daily plan. Still need help!!!! We are also still waiting in genetic testing to see how many cells/levels his TS21 falls under as well as thyroid results.
I hope everyone else is doing great!
Dragonfly- sorry to hear about little one, hope for a speedy recovery. I almost though we were having trouble with that they wanted to use silver if it had not fallen off by next visit. It finally did but we haven’t gone for our 1 month check up yet.

Beaut1ful38, I had the same issue - baby fever. I think it's all the hormones. I totally was toying with the idea of trying for a sibling for Phoebe before I got too old all the way up to about 4 months. Then she hit teething solidly and has attachment anxiety already, and I realized that it was all that prolactin flowing through me. She's almost 6 months now and I feel saner. I definitely want her to be my last. Milk supply: I went on domperidone to up my milk supply. Phoebe nurses, but my body sucks and doesn't make enough. At my BEST, I'll get 2 ozs a pumping for when she's in daycare. My daily goal is 4oz total so she gets at least one bm bottle while I'm at work. She's been supplemented with formula since birth, but I'm determined to get as much breastmilk in her as possible. I had to get the domperidone (which increases your prolactin and has less side effects than Reglan) from a Canadian pharmacy, but it's been a life saver. I highly recommend. It doubled my pumping results. Message me if you want the site.

I’ve been nesting and carrying around my now nearly 11 month old little boy. He’s biiiig and getting heavy and my belly is big too! Lol
@dragonfly: I PMed you and I really hope that things with your little boy and you are going very well!
@Rooroo917: any news? We all want to know how you’re doing! Keeping fingers crossed!!
@Beaut1ful38: I guess Elijah is now 2 months old!! I missed my pregnant belly after my last pregnancy and... here I am: 32 weeks pregnant again!
I ended up exclusively pumping too before- I think this was partly because I got pregnant again pretty quickly and the hormones changed. But I also suspect that a lip tie and tongue tie my boy had (we revised it) had
something to do with it... Not sure but possible. It is what it is so don’t stress about it. I’ve been using really good European formula (organic, non GMO, milk from grass fed cows).
@calvingirl: I never got to the saner phase haha I think my husband had a baby fever bigger than me cause he brought it up about having another one. My OBGYN said to wait at least 3 months PP and so we did. Lol probably not 1 day longer lol
@Flamingogirl: how are you doing? What’s the news? I hope all is well!
As far as myself: I’m getting close! I’m 32 weeks pregnant according to my LMP date but they measured the baby and said he is one week ahead (so 33 weeks pregnant tomorrow according to that). Anyway - 3rd trimester and getting close!!
I’m preparing the stuff for hospital and home (easier now cause I already have a lot of stuff from my first boy).
My OBGYN wants to induce me before week 39 and I’m not really having it! It’s only because of my age and nothing else. And she wants to do a cervical check soon and I’m gonna refuse it too. I just hate this rush and for no medical reason.
My EDD is August 9 (their calculations) and August 16 according to mine...
I THINK the baby turned head down just a few days ago as I’m feeling movements really low now in the pelvic area and more pressure there. Also more backpain. And some hiccuping down low. So I guess they might be good signs...
That’s all for now.

@hope I'm doing Great! My little girl Annika is 4 months old now and is just loving life! She is starting to work on rolling and I think is close to laughing in longer stretches. I just love to see her smile. My DH sounds like yours! He keeps asking when we are going to ttc baby number 2! I really want to breastfeed Annika for at least a year so I'm not quite ready to start ttc again... plus I don't think I've even ovulated yet since I had her. I think the earliest we will start trying again is in November. We'll see how I feel then. I might push it to her 1st birthday for trying, but it took us 9 months of trying to get her so we don't want to wait to long to start trying again.
Here's Annika in her 4 months picture from last Friday.

Hi, ladies. My Reese is getting so big. She is 6m now. I can't believe all you other ladies are getting by too. Rooroo already too!
With a heavy heart I have to say I just lost my grandma Saturday and my mother yesterday. I had to leave my girls and will be back Monday night. It has been a rough week.

@kelleria I’m so sorry for your loss! prayers for you and your family.
Rylie and Reese have the same birthday so, my LO is also 6m. She has weaned herself from breastfeeding and is fully on solids and formula now. She can sit independently and is now getting up on her knees so crawling won’t be far off now! We are going back to Canada on Monday for the month of July to spend time with my family.
Glad to hear that everyone is doing well! Hope to see pics of your lil one rooroo.

@hope Wow exciting a new newborn coming soon!! Keep us updated!! Still exclusively pumping but working on trying still trying to get him to latch. No tongue tie or lip he has swallow issues forgot what’s it’s called. Still using nipple shield which works.
@kelliria- so sorry for your loss. for you and your family
Today Elijah learned to roll over from tummy to back!!! He is 2 months old today!!!! Question what products have you ladies used to help your milk supply? I tried goats rue, and fenugreek and blessed Thistle but all separately to many pills do take looking for I pill to take with everything plus more herbs. I even ate lactation cookies and just purchased from milk mama.com item called emergency brownies. I can’t seem to pump more than 6–10oz a day. Even did power pump but I think it’s bc he isn’t stimulating me to produce more bc of non latching issues.
