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!

@kelleria I’m sorry to hear your kiddies are unwell! I hope they feel better soon! She’s sooo cute! Isn’t it funny we had our girls on the same day?! Rylie & Reese
@calvingirl. Ohhh girl I’ll say a prayer for you!! Lol. I’m turning 40 this year and I am Done! Especially after the traumatic hemorrhage surgery after Rylie was born the idea of being pregnant again actually terrifies me. ( I seriously am still traumatised). Hubby went for a vasectomy on Jan 2 so we don’t conceive again cause he was terrified he almost lost me. But she’s just so cute and worth every moment of hell! Lol Here’s my lil angel.

Oh ladies me too! We are so so done...3 kids is tiring, Nancy has a cough and cold and isn't sleeping well at all! My husband keeps saying he's booking in for a vasectomy but hasn't done it yet....ok on no birth control either as they just don't agree with me! Every single month is making me paranoid though....oooh I can't have another, we don't have the space for 4! Currently expecting my period in a few days and she can hurry up! I've had loads of stretchy so for about 2 weeks so that's was making me panicked lol....hoping it's just my hormones settling back down lol. Oh those baby pics are all beautiful! Such sweet girls. Nancy is now 18 weeks, she's rolling now too! Slow down baby girl xxxx

Soo...you know how I got concerned that DH and I had some "adult time" during ovulation? Yeah, well I'm now 11 days late. I haven't gotten a positive on a test though, so I don't think I'm pregnant - unless it's the weirdest pregnancy I've ever had. I think the one period I had at 3 months was a fluke and body just went back into postpartum mode, skipping periods. HOWEVER, Phoebe is 18wks now (over 4 months) and she nurses every day - but gets most of her nutrition from formula because I'm almost all dried up. If it weren't for the negative pregnancy tests, I'd swear I was pregnant again. It's so weird.... I'm trying not to be concerned about it right now.

Flamingogirl- the ultrasound went great (was a couple weeks ago). I am getting so close. Getting uncomfortable now. Had my baby shower this past weekend. I go see the doctor on Wednesday hopefully she will check me.
Calvingirl- wow 4 months already! And 11 days late?? what could it be? Are you still testing? That would be exciting another baby?? Right

@Beaut1ful38: Whooo hoooo!! It sounds like you're going to hold your baby VERY soon!! It sounds like you're getting very close to going into labor! Any regular contractions that are close and getting more intense? BTW: you look beautiful, Mama!
Short update about me: I'm now 24 weeks 3 days. My boy is moving and my husband could finally feel him too. :) No complaints besides getting more and more uncomfortable about turning from side to side while sleeping and some pressure in the pelvic area especially when getting up. My little boy who is almost 9 months old now is keeping me busy. LOL So the pregnancy seems to be going so much faster. I'll have the glucose test at my next appointment (yuk). Last time I had to do it twice so I hope it will be OK the first time cause the 2nd test took 3 hours and now I have a little boy at home... Anyway, the baby is growing, moving and the ultrasounds showed that he's a healthy baby (all normal). I also got a "sibling doula" to take care for my first boy when it is time to go to the hospital. That's all for now...

@Beaut1ful38: It's amazing how fast it goes, huh? Enjoy even minute of it! :) It's great you're measuring the contractions ! You want them even closer (like in rule "511": 5 minutes apart, lasting one minute for st least 1 hour: https://www.babylist.com/hello-baby/what-are-the-stages-of-labor ). I'm sure you know that, but just sharing :)
I had contractions in my first pregnancy for a pretty long time... They started on a Tuesday around midnight. They went on the whole Wednesday and got intense at the end of the day so we went to a hospital on a Wednesday around 8:00 PM. They checked me and told me to walk for 2 hours in a hospital. They re-checked and admitted me then. And then I spend the night there and the contractions continued on a Thursday and were strong. But my water didn't break so my OBGYN broke my water around noon on that Thursday. And my boy was born on that Thursday after 4:00 PM.
Of course every birth journey is different. But the baby will come when it's time. :) Keeping my fingers crossed for you, your baby and easy delivery! You are SO close now! How exciting!!
@Rooroo917: Yes! It's great for the partner to feel the baby! My husband says that it's such a different experience for the guys in general cause they do not get to experience it like us - with all the movements, growth, body changes, etc. It does not always register, but it becomes more real when he gets to feel the baby or see the baby via the ultrasound. That's what he says and I'm sure it varies for guys, too. But it was the priceless thing to see how happy and excited he was when our first baby was being born and to see his happy tears. That was the best!!

@Beaut1ful38. OMG. He is so precious. Congratulations girl. The wait is finally over and you are finally holding your son.
Hi everyone. It has been months since I last posted on here and I miss each and every one of you ladies and all your babies are so precious and adorable that I miss when my little man was so small. I had to take a step back and deal with with some issues in my life. Just recently, my ex husband decided it was time to put our dog down as she wasn't doing very well. She just celebrated her fifteenth birthday and things went downhill pretty fast. I never really got to see her as he was a trucker and is always on the road. When he messaged saying it was time I was given the opportunity of going with them to the vet to say goodbye. Both my husband and ex husband left the decision up to me but never discouraged me as it was going to be tough. After a couple days, I finally decided that I was going to go. Even though I was going, it was the best decision I have ever made. I never got to say goodbye to my grandpa or to my best friend and have a lot of regrets even though I didn't know. My ex decided to take a step back and let me hold our dog as he knew how much it ment to me. She knew what was going on and with the last bit of strength she gave me one last kiss and she passed in my arms. I held her for a very long time. We got her cremated and her ashes now rests with me in my home. Since going, it has made me such a strong person on the inside and thankful I have made the right choice. With that being said, I have kept up with everyone and hope things are progressing well. For some that know my situation, things are going well and slowly progressing. For some that don't know, I developed a severve case of post partum depression, post partum anxiety and post partum anger. I wrote up a little journal and you are more than welcome to check it out.
Update on Isaiah: Well he's not so small anymore . He weighs a whopping 19.3 pounds at his 6 month shots. Since birth, he developed an umbilical granuloma. Which means that when the umbilical cord fell off, part of the tissue stayed behind. He was getting doses of silver nitrate in the hopes that the tissue would fall off. Months later and after many doses of treatment it has since shriveled up and will not fall off and the silver nitrate doesn't react to the tissue anymore. He has another appointment with the surgeon on May 14 to see what the next step is. On the bright side. He started rolling onto his stomach at 3 months old. Just recently he is slowly going on his knees to start crawling. His legs are so strong that he is able to grasp the handles of the little trampoline and stand unassisted for 3 minutes. I'm not sure what will come first, crawling or walking. He still has no teeth but I am sure those will come in soon. Just recently, I starting giving baby food and he is so interested that he started grabbing the spoon and my hand and feed himself. He has this smile that just lights up the room. Despite everything that is going on, I have never felt this attached to him.
Also just wanted to say, welcome to all the newcomers who have joined this group and pray for a happy and healthy 9 months. Enjoy every moment of it to the fullest and soon you will all be holding your precious babies. Should things go sour, please know that you are not alone and to ask for help if you need it and take time for yourself to relax.
