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!

Thank you for making me feel like I'm not being over the top. I just feel it in my gut that I need to be put on progesterone. I hope I'm wrong and that my numbers from tonight go way up! You never know, right?!
I'm sorry hubs wasn't nice yesterday but I'm glad you voiced to him how he made you feel and I hope he's more sympathetic going forward. Being pregnant with all these emotions and thoughts in our heads daily is no easy feat! You can always vent to us at least :) My bf thinks I'm being dramatic about the progesterone and wanting to be put on supplements or suppositories... he just doesn't get where my anxiety comes from I guess... but he should cuz he went thru this with me just 4 months ago. Men can be insensitive with all this women stuff cuz they don't have that emotional connection with the baby til the baby is born... we have a connection from the time we see two lines or hear "your pregnant"

@BB2018. She's only 2 years old and really doesn't know better and she was pretty tired. I hope the link helps you. I took screen shots on my phone to remind me and I will probably still take the cream till the placenta fully takes over because stopping then or gradually stopping will be okay.

@BB2018. It's okay, really. I just have to be more careful with her and make sure she doesn't kick me or do skmeghing that might hurt the baby. Did the link help you take some of the uneasyness away? Let us know how the results go. Tomorrow I have to get my last prenatal screening done. Thank goodness as I don't do well with needles even though I have three tattoos. Want to get one last one but will have to wait now.

Thank you :)
Dragonfly23 hormones make us have crazy emotions, and we can find everything upsetting, I found in my last pregnancy that pregnancy yoga really helped, you can start from 16 weeks, really calms you down and helps you connect with baby, and I found it nice to have an hour to myself away from my daughter and husband :)
Youre husband is right about baby being very protected in there so try not to worry, but obviously try to avoid any more bumps if possible. Its normal to worry about how your daughter will be with new baby, but it will all work out perfect :) My first two are 20months apart in age. My son had more bumps and what not as a little baby than you can imagine from my daughter, and he is and was absolutely fine, it's all part of being a younger sibling, he was a far happier, relaxed and more chilled out baby, and still loves rough and tumble now, he's four now and starts school in September, such a good boy and very bright.
Bb2018 You know what right for your baby, you don't sound overly confident with your doctor, so perhaps maybe ask for a second opinion just incase what the first is saying is wrong and you should be on progesterone. Its really important that you trust your doctors in my opinion as your putting your health and your baby's health in their hands.
I have very few symptoms at the moment, nausea on and off, seems to be better if I keep snacking, needing to pee more often and very tired but that really is about it, i almost wish i had more to reassure me. I turned 10 weeks today, still waiting for my letter to arrive with the date for my 12 week scan, I wish it would hurry up so I can start counting down. I really want to see if the hoematoma has gone, and if is all still going well, we are finally announcing :) we haven't even told our children yet....

Just got back my 2nd set of bloodwork - in 48 hours my HCG went from 580 to 1600 and my progesterone went from 14.1 to 14.5! :) I can breathe now! She's going to schedule my first ultrasound for next Friday!! I'll only be 5 weeks, 2 days at ultrasound, but hopefully we can see something... she seems to think we will because my HCG will be high enough by then... what do you girls think??
Lakarmw - I completely feel you about symptoms - my symptoms are coming and going and it freaks me out a little, but I know it's normal. I think I'll just be on edge about everything. Is it bad I'd rather have nausea every day and feel symptoms than feel none? I'm sooooooo nervous for when we tell my bf's kids - he has a 6 year old boy and 12 year old girl and I think the girl is going to take it hard.

Those results sound brilliant :) you must be so pleased! With my last baby I had an ultrasound at 5 weeks and we could see the gs, and it was looking fine and in the right place, then went again a week later and there was a little kidney bean with a heart beat flickering so you may see something.....
When do you plan to tell them? She may surprise you, I can remember being over the moon when my mum had new babies with my step dad, I was 11, I didn't really like him until then, but the babies got my on board with the situation.
I haven't told my kiddies yet they are 6 and 4 we plan on telling them after my 12 week scan which I have just had the date for and is 2 weeks today xxx

@Lakermw. Thank you for your kind words, I really do appreciate them. I'm just a worry wart and worry about things. I will have to try and find something to take the stress and emotions away and not be so irritable all the time. Never done yoga before but I like going for walks.
@BB2018. I am glad that your numbers are fine. I was able to see the heartbeat at 6w ultrasound and my last ultrasound. My symptoms seems to be coming and going minus the sore boobs and it freaks me out a bit too. I am waiting patiently for the baby to move more and I am able to feel the kicks and the pokes but worries me a bit that I should be feeling them by now.
Does anyone know if drinking Crystal Lite is safe to drink? It says that it has aspartame and that it should be avoided in pregnancy but I read some forums that some pregnant moms drink them all the time and the baby turned out fine. Also, should I be worried about not feeling the kicks as I am 16w 1d. I don't remember when I felt them in my first pregnancy and heard that with a second pregnancy you would feel them a lot sooner. My belly got big and people noticed right away.

@dragonfly23 Feeling baby depends on how and where you'r carrying. At 16 weeks, I would not be worried. i remember feeling first flutters at 15 weeks and definitive movement at 19/20.
I'm so glad to hear everyone is progressing so well here, especially those of us in our first trimesters when life seems so touch and go. I'm 9 weeks tomorrow and the only thing keeping me together are constant snacking and naps when I can sneak them in, during the day. The insomnia at night has also started to kick in which is the cruelest twist of fate, let me tell you. Next u/s i next week when I go for my pre-op consult and I just want to fast forward time. It's like i track life through u/s. everything in between is just fluff
