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!

Hey yes this is a brilliant idea, I'm 27 bubs will be born 2 months before my 28th birthday, this will be my first, but fiancé has 2 kids from previous relationships, 8 and 2 in august, we have a wedding date in april next year and I'm about 5w 5d preggers, so happy and excited.
his mum isn't as happy as I thought but she said she was in shock, my family is over the moon with the news.
I can some what understand my fiancés mothers reaction as the 2 mothers have taken the kids and made him fight tooth and nail to see his kids... we are at present fighting through the courts to get custody for his nearly 2 year old, so I think his family are worried I will do that to him if we went sour.
sorry for blurting all this here but I don't have too many people to talk to about these thing

oh thank you yea he was quite shocked and very similar to his mothers reaction, as in worried I will do what has been done twice before, but I never will, he's a wicked dad and loves his kids to pieces, I'm not going to deny my kids seeing a loving father and him his child.
he has come round now though and is happy and excited for the new arrival

@Kelliria! Found the group! Hi all. I'm 37, will be 38 when bugaboo is born, this is our second, but will hopefully be our first baby we bring home. I'm 8 weeks tomorrow. This was a good idea, Kelliria. I also felt a bit bad continuing to talk about pregnancy symptoms when so many are still waiting for their precious BFPs.
I'm a firm supporter of waiting to share the news of a BFP. Especially in those very early days. I've only told my spouse and my mom. At first I thought it'd be hard to keep a secret, but it's gotten easier and to be honest I really really love bug being our little secret, and the element of surprise.

@neomasie. I'm 15 weeks and still haven't told my family. Just a couple close friends and work. I wanted to wait till after the second ultrasound to start telling. I kind of wish I told them (family) sooner at Easter dinner but it never happened. I also feel that talking about the pregnancy with others who are still ttc is hard as I feel for them when their period starts and has to wait another month. I love your ticker by the way. It's cute.

neomaise: I hear you. This time, DH & I are not telling anyone till I hit 12 weeks. I'm hoping I can hide it till then.
Winnie91: your fiancée mother is very fortunate to have you to at least understand where she is coming from. I'm preparing for that reaction from my own parents. At 35 , they still make me feel 15 so I'm not sure what the reaction will be but mentally preparing myself. Continue to show support and understanding. Your fiancée and mother in law will love you for it!
Kelliria: Our family situation is unique! SO and I had our three children, split up a few years later, he had another child and somehow we managed to reconcile a few years after that and now we are expecting again, 10 years after our last one! It boggles my mind but I'm so happy and excited!

I love the idea of a separate thread! I feel exactly the same way talking about my BFP in the TTC forum.
I'll be 31 when our jelly bean is born. Hubs will be 33. Our son is turning 2 in two days! I'm 7w1d today and still have symptoms going on. Mostly intense food aversions, definitely some nausea, fatigue is slightly improving, boobs are staying pretty sore, and this bloat is insane! Fortunately they're staying consistent and not getting worse. They're already kind of hard to manage when no one but me and the hubs know! Ugh, side note... The MIL is in town from FL for my son's birthday and keeps trying to peek at my belly. They've been here for like 6 hrs and already pulled my DH away to ask if I'm pregnant yet. They were kind of annoying to tell when I was pregnant with DS so I haven't been looking forward to doing it again as it is and that just made it even worse. I just know she'll play the "I knew it!" card all over again. I'm gonna spend the next few days throwing them off the best I can hehehehe
My first scan is May 2 when I'll be 8w6d. I'm so excited and so nervous!
