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!

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!

Sheriskers, my bloat is horrible! I look like i did when i was 14w last pregnancy and I'm right behind you. Definately showing earlier this time. My abs are not as tight and my bloat baby is really poking out. I live with my inlaws and am hoping to keep it secret til 12w. I dont know if i can! Im nervous for my scan next Friday. My mmc stopped growing at 7w1d and I'll be a few days over. I wont breathe good til 12w, and I'll still be nervous. I'll at least wait til after scan to tell everyone.
Do you think you will tell them before they leave? I don't know if i would just get it over with or wait and tell them on the phone after they're gone! Lol. Im kinda feeling the "i knew it" thing. My mil has dreams that come true. She thinks she really has a gift. Before i was pg with dd she had a dream about a little boy and girl at the top of their stairs. I didn't think i would have 1, let alone 2. Then, she told me about a month ago i needed to have another one soon so Ruthie has someone to play with. I know the "i knew it" is on the way.

I am 7w6d and feeling nauseous, bloated (can’t fit in my pants already!) sore BBs and sleep issues!! I keep waiting to feel emotional but all I’m getting is cranky off & on! I am from Canada but am living in Australia so I’m on a different time zone ????
