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!

@midnightrose. I totally understand what you mean by not telling your parents. The first time I got pregnant, my (step)mom asked me if I was going to keep it. It hurt when she said that. With this pregnancy, my parents still don't know and think I will have to tell my daddy (yes, I still call him that ) first. Today wasn't a good day for me, been emotional and the general worn out feeling. I just told my grandma today and she had a suspicous feeling at Easter as I wore a baggy shirt but was happy. I have so much built up anxiety about telling them. Like you, I wish we could talk like we do on here to our families without having to stress about what they think. My (step)mom's bday is on the 26th would make a nice present or ruin her day . Tomorrow's a new day...

Hi, ladies! Having a little problem sleeping, as uaual. I am 7w2d today. I woke up about 3am and i am up for awhile. Got sick a few minutes ago. Second time i have got sick. Im still worried cause my symptoms are not bad. Tender bbs, not sore, nipples hurt if i lightly pinch. Food aversions and very slight nausea on rare occasions. I have went through ectopic fears and now it is blighted ovum. I just think i should have more symptoms. Im driving myself crazy. Need to see my u/s Fri. Im nervous and have to take my 2yr old. That's gonna be fun.
Sheriskers, that is awesome hubby backed you up and you made it without saying anything. You didnt need that stress alone. Can't wait to see your bean on a sonogram!
Midnightrose, i feel ya about telling people. I am afraid to tell my parents and i am almost 40. My mom lives in Alabama and me Ohio! She says i am too old and doesnt like bf much. I left and moved in with her for 17m when my dd was 2m. She is really close to my mother. My mother got mad when i moved back, naturally. My bf and i needed to focus on working and saving and i wanted him to realize i was serious about him having to be responsible. We didnt think we would get pg so fast and thought we would be in our own place before it happens. Lol. But i am ok with it. He has been working and he is a great dad now. I told his mother because my bathroom is right by her bedroom and she gets up at 3am for work. I am up peeing like 5xs a night nowand this morning puking. Plus, i am in her house. She was super excited though. * sighs of Relief* I hope you don't stress out too much before you can tell them. Tell them however you feel comfortable, even by picture and letter, if need be. We got your cyber back!!

Ok dragonfly, i lost my place and had to start a reply over. I hate that you are so emotional. I cry over stupid tv shows or news stories of all things. I couldnt imagine being like that with everything. I laugh at myself and don't really know why im crying but can't stop, especially if animals or kids have sad to happy story endings. (Insert those humane society commercials with that sarah McLaughlin song In The Arms Of An Angel.) Maybe some of your emotions will level out after the stress of telling everyone is off your shoulders.
Everyone else, i am glad you are ok and hope to hear from you all with updates! You ladies are all i really talk pregnancy with. All my friends are grandparents now and i am just starting!

Ladies, I started a forum discussion on CountdownMyPregnancy (the other site) called * Holiday (Oct-Dec) 2018 Babies *. Here is the link - just remove the spaces in the beginning. That's so the BB won't block it.

Anyway, CMP is not very active right now in the discussion groups, but it was in 2015 because I found an amazing group of women who shared the time with me. I think this group is a great idea, but as one woman in another group pointed out, AF got her and it caused her pain to scroll past this group's title. Maybe we should move over to CMP altogether and then we won't inadvertently be causing anyone pain? What does everyone think?
If you are over at CMP (and I'm on both and will be), my username there is the same - Calvingirl. "Follow" me.

Calvingirl, i will look into it. I felt bad as well when i read it. I created the group discussion so i wouldnt be talking about it in case others that didnt want to see the stuff didnt have to, but i think that is a good idea to move on. Ill have to find it. I was trying to help but guess i didnt. Like you, i love the women i have met here and want to keep in touch but i dont want to make this site that i needed dearly ttc uncomfortable for those still trying. This site is for ttc so i think i better step back. Im looking there now.

midnightrose and dragonfly - I'm so sorry you both feel that way about telling your family. I know when I tell my dad he probably won't even care, he never calls or texts me and we pretty much have zero relationship cuz he lives with my sister who I dont' speak with who is 40, married and lives in his house with her 2 kids (18 and 1) and her hubs and they give my dad ZERO money a month - to me that's just scummy but anywho, that's not why we are here... I say if they don't like it, bless and release! They don't have to like it. If you're happy, that's all that matters :) take care of you and that growing baby inside you with love for yourself and for him/her!!
Kellira - funny you say that because I have had such awful insomnia the past 3 nights! Like BAD! I haven't even had coffee today because I'm scare that'll make it even worse! I never had this my other two times I was pregnant. Not fun! I'll be 4 weeks tomorrow - I hope I don't have this my entire pregnancy! I am feeling wicked nauseous too :( Almost tossed my cookies but then ate some potatoes and then felt okay. Now I'm starting to feel nauseous again - gonna eat and hopefully that helps! I'm thinking happy, positive thoughts for you for your u/s on Friday! Everything will be okay! You're going to see your little bean!!!!
I called my doctors office today and I'm going for bloodwork to check my HCG & progesterone levels tomorrow then again on Thursday! I am hoping my numbers will at least double! Praying so hard that this is it, this time I get to take this baby home with us!!!!
When is everyones due date? My EDD for now is 12-30-18! I'm hoping I'll have baby before Christmas! Wouldn't that be a miracle!!! Trying to think of cute ways to announce it, I'll be 13 weeks on June 20th ... so maybe announce on July 4th? Have any of you thought how you'll announce yours?
Also - how do I make a pregnancy ticker that I can use on this site? I need one :) lol

Kelleria - not your fault at all, and you tried to mitigate it well. I like having this group, but yeah, her comment made me feel guilty because I know how jealous I got as I watched my online friends come and go with their BFPs and I still didn't have one.
BB2018 - I just called to get my ultrasound apt for May, and omg, they want me to come in at 230 for beta levels and progesterone tests too - today and Wed. I'm so nervous. My tests look great, but what if it doesn't double??? My goodness, it's already a roller coaster of emotions.

@tryingafterloss Love the pic! I'm so anxious for my own!
@Kelliria I still think it was a great idea to split off from the Dec. Babies group... But I will look for everyone on the other site too. I made an account shortly after my BFP but haven't really messed with it much. Also, I'm in Ohio too!
The doc has my EDD as 12/6 for now but if I measure closer to when I actually O'd it'll probably be the 8th or 9th. Countdown to dating scan is less than 9 days!
