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. Thank you for the reassurance. I feel pulses down below and my belly is still hard. So, in your opinion since you had a boy, could that be why they can't find mine or is it still different for everyone? I honestly think I would cry (of joy) if it turns out I am having a boy as then I would have one of each.
So, every day I ask my hubby if he has told anyone and he keeps telling me no he hasn't; just his brother but he has a tendency to have a big mouth. So, I just asked, can I post my comment on Facebook and he says go ahead. So, I'm still procrastinating. Was going to post it tomorrow as then I would be exactly 17 weeks. Then I thought, should I wait till after my gender ultrasound to change the wording to a he or she or should I just post it tomorrow and then I can let people know after the ultrasound the gender. Thought came to me lol, I think I will post it tomorrow and then when it comes time then I can repost it and change it to a he or she and then change the ultrasound picture. What do you ladies think? I am so nervous about posting it and I can't decide which picture to use. Full body or just the face? (sigh)

@Lakarmw. Thank you! I will try not to worry about it and just wait till Monday. They found my daughters too pretty easy as well so it makes me think otherwise. I honestly think I would feel better if I send it out earlier rather than later. I had my first bout of dizzyness. Was sitting downstairs with my coworker on coffee break and it hit me. Most weird feeling ever. Good thing I wasn't walking or I might have fainted.

SheRiskers - that's a great heartrate! CONGRATS on having an awesome ultrasound! You must be so relieved to see the baby doing so well!! Are you going to find out what you're having?
Kelliria - I feel like I look so bloated/have bump already... I know it isn't a bump cuz the baby is super super small right now, so it has to be bloat, but it's just awful! NONE of my pants fit me :( idk what I'm going to do, I'm only about 5 weeks along with a really long way to go still LOL
dragonfly23 - I'm sure your u/s will be here before you know it too! I can remember when you were only a few weeks pregnant and now look - you're almost half way there!!!! SO EXCITING! I cannot wait to be that far along! God willing!! Did you post on FB today? I hope so!!! :)
AFM - My symptoms come and go, but I also feel like they're less than they were like 2 weeks ago when I found out... I'm hoping it's just me being a nervous nelly and it's nothing to worry about. I'm going to get 3rd set of bloodwork today after work and will find out those results tomorrow then my first ultrasound is in 8 more days - next Friday and it can't come fast enough!!!! I just want to set my mind at ease and KNOW this baby is okay and growing on schedule. Part of me doesn't have a good feeling and part of me is trying to say to myself "think positive" stay positive and it's all gonna be okay this time. It is SO HARD to try to relax and stay calm and positive after having 2 losses. I know many woman have had many more losses than that, but for me it's so hard! Anyone else in same shoes as me? How are you coping? I think I'll feel better after seeing/hearing HB and after first trimester.

@dragonfly23 Yay!! I hope you get lots of love and congrats today. I don't think we'll do a Facebook announcement. We didn't do one with my son so I got some really shocked responses when I announced he was born Hahah
@BB2018 yes, absolutely. And my midwife told me if I opt for some optional blood work next appointment I can learn the gender then. It's all I can do to resist! Haha I bypass all the tests usually so I'm trying to just wait until July 2. Also, if it helps at all, I was SO bloated at 5 weeks that I thought Omg I need maternity pants now. Fortunately it didn't get any worse than that! I've stayed relatively the same on the bloat scale since then (ugh) except now I can start to feel pressure right where my uterus is. Another 3 weeks and I think I'll have a real bump I'm not shying away from maternity gear this time. I'd much rather just be comfortable!

Hi all, hope everyone is good, sorry been MIA a wee bit, just with work and organising a midwife, having a scan and looking after my fiancé I haven't had much time. the fiancé had his foo badly run over at work luckily there was not broken bones, its a soft tissue and bone bruising. I have taken time and read up on everyone's comments, all the bump pictures are great.
I'm going well I'm now 7w3d feeling good, no morning sickness as yet, energy levels are picking up, but my boobies are sooo sore and tender and a wee bit bigger already. I have registered with a midwife yesterday, I didn't shop around as in new Zealand there is quite a shortage of midwifes, and I didn't want to miss out.

It's good to hear from you Winnie. I agree abput the symptoms. My energy came back fri along with appetite and no food aversions anymore. My bbs are not as tender either but full. I was 8w Sun.
I asked my dr about carrying high or low and she said it is a wives tale? I never knew which was correct because i have heard high and low for each. So, i asked her which was correct. She said neither. She said what makes you carry high is if you have good stomach muscles or sometimes your first before they got stretched from pregnancy. The more you have kids or lose stomach muscles the lower the baby sits because they aren't as tight to hold the baby up. Idk. I'm conflicted now! Lol.
Dragonfly, good for you for just telling your friends on your terms, how you wanted. I think it sounded perfect.
I had orientation at Costco tonight. I really like the pay, benefits, and 401k. Ive always made great money as a server but we dont get any perks, benefits, vacation, sick pay, ect like Costco has. Only downside is it is the deli where it is about 32 degrees. Hopefully, i get used to it quickly.
