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!

@Kellira - think happy thoughts mama! I'll be saying a prayer for you and your bean!
I feel like my symptoms are coming and going all through the day and night... the past 2 nights I slept like a baby, but the 2 nights before that I was up every 2-3 hours to pee... it's playing tricks with my mind/thoughts... but trying to stay relaxed, calm and as positive as possible!
The Chinese predictor says boy for me. I really would LOVE a girl, but I'd be happy with either - just praying I give birth to a healthy baby and we are both healthy!

@BB2018. My symptoms come and go too. The one that seems to be sticking around a lot is the sore boobs. I hated it with the first pregnancy and sure I am going to hate it with this pregnancy. I saw your comment on the other site and I am doing pretty good. My emotions seem to be on a roller coaster, I’m happy, sad and depressed all in a matter of a few minutes. I hope you get a girl but like you mentioned, you would be happy with either or and same with me, I would love a boy as I have a girl already and we aren’t having any more after this one. I’ve been feeling a little rough in the head and hope a head cold is not coming as it has been lingering for the past two days making my head feel wonky. When is your ultrasound and did you guys want to find the sex of the baby?

Nothing is scheduled yet except more bloodwork today - after today we will schedule u/s. The dr said she doesn't want me to have an ultrasound til my HCG is at least 6,000. It was 580 yesterday so it should be 6,000 by next week... I'm not too sure I'm going to stay with her... I'll see how I feel after I get my results tomorrow. My progesterone is 14.1 and I think that's a little low, esp because I've been using the cream 2x a day for 2 weeks - I felt it should be higher. I asked her to put me on supplements and she said no, not yet let's see what tomorrows blood shows... I just have a feeling I'm going to need to be on progesterone and I'd rather start it now than when it's too late... do you think I'm being neurotic?
Dragonfly - I'm sorry your emotions are all over the place - since I found out I'm pregnant, mine have been as well... sorry I'm not much help to soothe you, maybe try to find things to do that will calm you more? Take a walk, listen to soothing music like the beach or something? I need to find things myself so I'm just sharing my ideas ... I hope you don't feel like that much longer xoxo

@BB2018. I don't think you are being neurotic. You are protecting your unborn child. Most doctors don't like to put people are progesterone as like my first gyne said to me, you got pregnant the first time no problem so you don't need to take it. I went with someone else. I hope your numbers boost soon and you can get your ultrasound booked and can finally see your little bean. I will have to take a walk just to collect my thoughts. Hubby wasn't very nice yesterday and I let him know today. It made my self esteem drop emensily and makes me want to go back in my shell and I feel like a third wheel with him and my daughter. Some men just have no filter and think its all about them and I don't get it.

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....
