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!

@ calvingirl: THANK YOU so much! :) I know it's going to be a challenge to have 2 babies so close together, but it will also have some benefits. :) And they usually bond so nicely. Congratulations on your little Phoebe! I didn't think that I'd have the 2nd baby and I'm 42! LOL So "never say never" haha! Thank you for the good thoughts!
@ Rooroo917: Thank you so much ! I just have a feeling that it might be a girl, but it's 50/50! LOL I'll be happy if it's another boy, too. But I think it'd be nice to have a girl, too...
I should know not far from now cause I'll be doing genetic testing that can determine the gender. Although, in a way, it might be nice for it to be a surprise this time... What do you all think? The good thing is that we have most of the baby stuff now and I guess I could even use the baby clothes from my boy (at least in the beginning)... But maybe it would be neat to have a different experience of not knowing the gender and finding out at birth...?
@FlamingoGirl13: Oh WOW! 4 weeks left? That's SO exciting! I know it gets more exciting towards the end when the little one is getting ready to welcome the World. :) Please keep us posted! And you still have some time to get organized and some things can be rearranged and changed even after the baby is home. I just made sure to have my hospital bag ready and packed and my birth plan printed out (a few copies so I gave them to the doctor and nurses). And had all the essentials for the baby's arrival, of course. I'm so excited for you! It's so cool to see my friends here PREGNANT and awaiting their babies!
Short update about me: I got the official test result from my doctor's office today stating "POSITIVE". and a note from the doctor that said "Congrats". I am 9 weeks 4 days pregnant today. I feel nauseated at times which is completely different from my previous pregnancy. I get tired and sleepy (that was the same before). I have some wild dreams - some are like movies. Today it was a sci-fi movie dream haha But I had even more vivid dreams the first time and a few times I had a dream about being pregnant or about the gender (I saw a boy a few times which turned out to be true LOL). This time I didn't have anything like that as of now. I have another doctor's appointment with an ultrasound on February 14th (Valentine's Day LOL) and also genetic testing on January 28th with the detailed, dating ultrasound.
Again : to all expecting Mommas!

We got to see our little boy today. He is growing right on schedule weighing 1lb 2oz at 22 weeks and 2days. He just didn’t want his picture taken today. Every time they try he turn his back to us and on this picture he is covering his face with his hand. ....No paparazzi please!! Maybe next ultrasound next month he will show us something.
Next month we see a cardiologist to check baby heart further. As of today everything looked great per doctor. Heart, kidney, bladder, spine, head ,ect. We will continue to pray. He is currently in the breech position. Which his head sometimes hurt against my rib!!

@hope4rainbowbaby - The little one looks great! Did you decide if you are going to find out the gender this early on? My DH and I want babies close together too but we'll probably aim for 16-18 months apart. Is it weird to already be thinking of when to start trying again before this baby is in my arms? I think because it took a while the first time I want to make sure we don't start to late if we want them closer together. Your kids will be so close growing up!
AFM - I have two weeks left! Baby is Due February 12th and I'm feeling super ready. We don't know the gender but are looking forward to the big surprise soon!

No baby yet! I'm full term though and have most things at home ready so if Baby comes I am more then ready at this point! My pelvic pain and pressure has increased a lot of the past few days so I'm hoping that's a sign that baby is getting lower in pelvis. I have a midwife appointment tomorrow so we'll see how that goes. Also feeling menstrual like cramps once a day or so, Midwife said last week that it was a sign that things are getting moving. I'm hoping baby arrives before my due date but not hanging any hopes on it!

Flamingogirl- OMG!!! So excited ????!!!!!
Well he was a mover again. And all is well. Heart is perfect and organs. He weighs 2lbs 4oz and measuring 2 days ahead. Which is ok!! I’m so excited and happy all test la are coming back ok. Still amino and bloodwork say TS21 but they have nothing physically on ultrasound to say confirmed. We will continue to pray

@Photomama - Wow!!! Congratulations! I am so beyond happy to see your triplet news! After all this time three babies. I know that multiple pregnancies can be hard and have lots of complications so I am thinking of you and sending lots of good vibes your way and the babies way. Give us an update next time you have a check up. I bet you will be having lots more of those now that you know you are having triplets! Was baby C measuring the same as A & B?
@Beaut1ful38 - You are next up for having a baby right?! I hope all is going well and that you passed that 3 hour glucose test.
AFM - Annika will be 3 weeks old tomorrow! My DH has one more week home with me and then my Mom is taking a week off to help me. After that I will be on my own for 7 weeks until I go back to work. It's been amazing have this much time with DH and Annika. I'm so glad he was able to take off four weeks and it will feel so different when he goes back to work.
Annika is doing well and was 9lbs 5oz at her 2 week check up. They don't need to see her again until she is 2 months old. Unless something comes up of course. I'll be able to weigh her at a Moms group thing at her 1 month point so at least I will know how big she is! After struggling with latch the first week and some nipple break down, we are doing well now. Sometimes she pinches me, but now I know how to pop her off correctly.
I hope everyone is doing well!
