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!

Congratulations 4thBaby! Welcome.
@BB2018 - I have my ultrasound on the 16th, and I can't wait. Your baby bump is identical to mine, unfortunately I haven't taken a pic yet. But bloated completely, and upper stomach pushing out a lot. I didn't get very big with Oscar in 2015, but he was underweight, so I'm hoping to be huge this time! I want a healthy big baby!
I agree with you, BB2018, that every pregnancy is a life that should be cherished from the moment we love it, so I tell anyone I want when I want. I'll probably tell my employer after my 8wk scan to give them notice for planning when I'm out on leave. I'll wait till June/July for the facebook announcement, but that'll really only be for people I'm not close to anyway.
I've told parents and sisters so far, but I'll be telling my kids on the 12th. I have one son who turns 21 on Saturday, and we're going to a concert/beer fest and he's going to wonder why I'm D-Driver when I love beer. So I have to tell him that day. My husband and I have custody of his four kids (my stepkids), ages 18, 16, 14, and 8 - and they have been bugging me about when I'm going to grow them a new brother or sister again, so I'm very excited to tell them. But still scared, because if something happens, they'll take it hard. This still gives me a few weeks though. If I have any bad signs, I'll reevaluate.

Hi, all! It has been awhile! It is good to read up on all of you. I have been feeling good lately and my energy is back so i have been taking the time to clean, do errands and play outside with my daughter and take her for walks. It was 81 yesterday and sunny and such a nice day finally.
Midnightrose, i think it's neat about your cabin. Compost toilets are great. I am an outdoor, camping, hiking, hippy, nature girl and would love to live off grid. My bf doesn't like bugs or outside so i dont get to enjoy much except tge rare moments i sneak off to Hocking Hills, Ohio to relax.
Can't wait to see all the ultrasounds coming up! They,help me with my impatience waiting on mine!
The baby bumps are lovely! Mine has really came since I'm heavier than my dd. Ill try to find a few. I was bloated at 5w with dd and showing at 11w. She is big. 9lbs, 23in at birth. Now at 2 (3/6/16) she is in a size 4 and 5, size 9 shoe. 38lbs, 40 inches. Her daddy is 6'10". I am guessing this baby will be huge as well. Lol.

I just got back from my dating ultrasound!!! Baby looks great and had a heart rate of 172! I should be measuring about 8.5 weeks but measured right at 9 weeks! My due date is teetering between Dec. 5 or 6 haha. My son was 154 @ 8 weeks so I'm hoping with that higher heart rate theory that this one is a girl!!
Whew I'm so relieved to see that everything is in the right place! I was a little nervous yesterday when my nausea dissipated for most of the day but then I threw up this morning haha funny how that works. The gender scan is booked for July 2! It feels so far away.

@SheRiskers. So glad that everything is going along smoothly. That is a high heart rate. Maybe you are right and you are having a girl. Yeah, it does seem like eternity but I am sure it will be here before you know it. I am counting down the days till my ultrasound; 26 more days lol. I am a bit nervous about my doctor's appointment on Monday and whether or not he can find the heartbeat. I assume he will be able to find it as I would be 17 weeks and 4 days by then. I honestly still think it is a boy because they sit lower in the belly.
