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!

@dragonfly - so happy for you that the scan went well and you heard the HB. That's wonderful!
@midnightrose - Hopefully your spotting is just a random cervix thing, especially since it stopped.
@Neomasie - how was your stitch? Did you get it put in? Was it painful? I'm worried in case I might have to have one - my cervix was really damaged with last birth, and I'm not sure how strong it'll be for this one.
@Tryingafterloss - Yeah, that seems weird to take antibiotics the whole time, because if you became immune to them and then developed another resisitent infection later on, that would be bad. Plus, can you imagine the yeast infections you'd have??
Keeping hydrated is really important, and because I'm extra paranoid, I ordered the strips that they have you pee on in midwife appts? It measures leukocytes (white blood cells - infection), protein, sugar, etc. in your urine, so if you get a positive, you can bring it to the attention of your doctor. Here's the link of what I'm talking about - https://www.amazon.com/Parameter-Urinalysis-Infection-Diabetes-Gallbladder/dp/B00XIKQCJC
You can talk to your doctor and ask if you can take a regular run of the antibiotics, then use these strips to make sure the infection doesn't come back. If it does, you can do another run of antibiotics. Instead of continuous... Just an idea.
My DH thinks I got them just to have something to pee on - after so long TTC, I'd developed a serious POAS addiction lol. But they make me feel better, so it's worth the $18.

Yayyyy dragonfly23 - that's GREAT news!!! So happy for you! You must've been so relieved hearing the heartbeat!
midnightrose - I'm sure your spotting was nothing, could be for so many diff reasons, our bodies go through crazy stuff creating a little human!
Tryingafterloss - I would def get second opinion, taking antibiotics for entire pregnancy doesn't seem like it would be the norm.
Water is a struggle for me too, but I try to drink a minimum of half my body weight in oz a day... living in the bathroom though! lol
I have my first ultrasound this Friday and I'm starting to get nervous about it! I just want this baby to be okay and to hear/see a heartbeat. Everyone always tells me to relax and what's meant to be will be. That is not reassuring and it doesn't help, it actually makes me wanna punch them in the face, sorry not sorry... am I the only one that feels like that? People who haven't suffered a MC just don't get it I feel like and I feel like the people I personally know are not very sympathetic. Please God let her/him be okay and growing on schedule. I still don't have many symptoms... bbs are super sore, especially when I take my bra off, gonna need to get bigger bras asap! Anyone know a reasonable place to buy some? I don't want to spend a ton, but want them to be comfy. I also need to get some new clothes because my work pants do NOT fit me at all :(

@BB2018. I totally understand whatever will be will be as my hubby tells me that all the time and it's like they don't understand what we are going through as they aren't the ones carrying the baby. It is such a relief to finally be able to hear it and can finally start to relax a bit and then just have to wait till my ultrasound on May 28 that definately seems like eternity but I am sure it will be here before I know it. I am sure your appointment will go well. How far along are you again? I can help you get your ticker working as I see it only shows the link.

@tryingafterloss I would definitely not take antibiotics the whole pregnancy!! No way. My urine culture came back with some bacteria in it too. My midwife messaged me asking if I had any symptoms of a UTI as the numbers weren't high enough to treat if I wasn't having any symptoms. I don't think I have a UTI at all but just in case I started taking some D-Mannose, extra water, and making sure I fully empty my bladder each time. I sort of suspect I didn't clean well enough to do the test right and the sample got "contaminated." I have zero symptoms of a UTI and I've definitely had them before! I'd ask for a retest. (I probably will.)
@dragonfly23 Yay you heard the heartbeat!! I hope they give me the chance to hear it at my next appt. I'll be 13 weeks then. I want to be able to tell people after that appt but only if they can somehow confirm the pregnancy is still on track.

@SheRiskers. I hope you are able to hear it as it is such a relief. My one friend thinks it's a boy and my other friend says it's a girl. Here's hoping for a boy and my family will be complete. I am sure everything is right on track for you. When is your next appointment? My doctor also told me that I should be feeling tge kicks after 18 weeks so that's another thing to look forward to. UTI's aren't fun. I drink water all the time and limit sugar intake so I don't get one. They are so uncomfortable.

Midnightrose3 I hope your spotting stopped, it should be nothing to worry about, i had some a couple of weeks ago, and was diagnosed with a tiny hoematoma, but they said it shouldn't be anything to worry about and to expect a little more spotting or for it to dissolve on its own. Well yesterday (after we dtd, first time since last spotting) I once again had two tiny spots, which had me panicked, I remember they told me only to worry though if it gets heavy or I'm in pain, which I wasn't. I've checked baby on my doppler this morning and I found her/him easily, with a lovely strong heartbeat at 162, so that's very reassuring. Only 3 more sleeps until my 12 week ultrasound now, so I dont think I'll go back to the epu unless anything gets any worse and just hold out until Friday.
Tryingafteraloss I had loads of utis with my last pregnancy but was only ever out in antibiotics each time for a week or so. Perhaps you should question why so long... to see of there's a genuine reason or that they are just being cautious.
Dragonfly23 pleased to hear your appointment went well and your heard your little baby :) such a wonderful reassuring sound.
BB2018 good luck for Friday I'm sure you're counting down the days just like me xx

@calvingirl I am having the stitch put in on saturday. I will keep you posted! I'm relieved my insurance approved it since they typically dont approve this type of stitch unless you've had recurrent losses or failures with a TVC. Now I just have to get through the actual surgery. I just want my baby to be ok!
@dragonfly23 congrats on the healthy u/s! That little one has a mighty strong heartbeat
@midnightrose I hope the bleeding has stopped, but it definitely sounds normal. But I completely understand your concern.

@BB2018 for some reason, i only trust words like 'be calm and what will be will be' when said by someone who has experienced a loss. I think because it seems like its coming from a place of experience and not just a flippant response by someone who hasn't experienced loss. Contradictory, but hey, it makes sense in my head

BB2018 - totally understand. I've only had early MCs before 6wks (which I am today), but I had a full term stillborn, so I know we're never safe. I don't take anything for granted. I can't WAIT till my scan to make sure this little one has a HB, is on track and growing well - and even how many are in there. 8 more days...feels like forever! I'm going to be a basketcase beforehand, so I completely understand. You want to know, but you don't want to know if it's bad news. It's going to be fine -
