Group for the BFPs

View Full Post

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!

Hi! Gm to you too! I am doing ok. It is pretty out and we did some major grilling out! Hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, fish, a steak for me, corn on the cob, 2 types pasta salad, broccoli, french fries. Whew. All i could eat was 4 bites of a hot dog. story of my pg life but i am ok with that.
I told my mil today. We live with her. Luckily, she was excited, at least to my face. She has 3 kids, the youngest is 36. Our dd is her only grandkid so she is happy.

Well, we made it these few days with the in laws without telling! My hubs is awesome and even went on a rant about how he's tired of people asking when the next one is just because our son is two. I think it totally threw them off more and I love him for that! Lol I've been mostly responsible for the cooking this weekend and with these food aversions and nausea it's been bruuuutal. Boobs are so much more sore than the earlier weeks. It's probably the nicest reminder out of anything. I'm trying to avoid counting the days until my scan hoping that staying busy will make it go fast!

Hi Ladies! Just checking in! You ladies are brave! Right now I'm OK with not telling anyone because truthfully I'm not looking forward to telling my parents. Even at 35, telling them big news makes me nervous. They love their grandkids very much but every time I told them I was pregnant ( 10,11,12 years ago) it was never the "right" time. So I am actually thinking of leaving a letter and announcements photos on their table when I'm ready. That's the only thing that's stressing me out especially this morning when my mother mentioned we should eat better because we are all gaining weight. In my head I thought, "if you only knew!".

Had my HCG levels checked. Thursday was 319 & Saturday was 603. Symptoms have come and go. Last week was horrible with chest pains but today was not so bad. I'll be 5 weeks on Tuesday. Everything is going so slowwww but so fast at the same time.

I'm so glad I can come to this board when I can't really talk to anyone else! Sometimes I wish we could talk this freely and with encouragement with our own families! I hope all your littles are doing well! Christmas will be so much fun this year!

@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.
h t t p : / /

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.
