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!

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. :)

@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!!
