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!

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

Yes hope your pre no consultation goes well neomasie, I know what you mean about fluff in between I think the whole of pregnancy is like that, just counting down inbetween all the little milestones.
Definitely don't worry about movement yet Dragonfly23, you may or may not be feeling flutters depending on where baby is :) won't be long. I can't wait to feel kicks, it's the most reassuring thing in the world.
I'm kinda treading announcing to certainly people too, a very close family member who we don't get on with too well, announced she's pregnant last week, so 4 weeks ahead of me. Personally I love babies so I was very pleased for them, but I'm not sure how they will take it, hopefully will think the same as me....

@Lakermw. I felt some flutters but it comes and goes. I agree, it is the most amazing thing to feel. My daughter got the hiccups a lot and feeling those during my pregnancy was so cute. I felt like that when I was ready to tell my parents. I was so worried about how they will take it as I assumed that they wanted me to wait longer and spend more time with our daughter before trying for another. Even my one grandma said the same thing. I guess that wasn't the case as everyone was very happy for us and hope for a boy but will be happy with what we are blessed with. If your close family member isn't happy for you then that is their loss. I hope they will feel the same as you are towards them. Babies are a gift so who wouldn't be happy.

@Kelliria. Glad to hear that everything is going well and on track. We are always here for anyone that needs to vent and get stuff off their chest as holding it in isn't good. My dad's birthday is on the 11th and my ex is the 7th.
Haven't really had much cravings. Been wanting pickles every now and then and chocolate milk. My lovely husband has found lactose chocolate milk because the regular stuff really bothers me and this stuff doesn't plus I drink the regular lactose milk and I am totally fine. No foods has made me say no to but wanting some spicy foods now and then but no cravings for ice cream or sweets like my first pregnancy where I ate a lot of it.

Hi ladies - so happy to hear all great things from each of you!
Dragonfly - I agree babies are a blessing and most everyone feels that way! I thought I remembered reading you usually don't feel kicks til around 18-20 weeks... so hopefully you feel the kicks soon! That must be one of the weirdest feelings! I cannot wait to feel that! I have a long way to go! lol. I honestly just can't wait to be in 2nd trimester!
Kellira - congrats on your u/s going so well!! Must've been such a relief to see the heartbeat and that's a great number too! Good luck with your interview at Costco! I love Costco - usually go 2-3 times a month lol. I live in New England so they're all over the place!
As for my cravings - I want ALL the chocolate lol. I'm trying to be good and eat fruits, raw unsalted nuts, lean proteins, etc. but it's hard. I even stopped drinking coffee and I'm a HUGE coffee drinker usually, but I know that could possibly be a factor in miscarriage. I know they say you can have up to 200mg of caffeine/coffee a day, but I figure I might as well just omit it if I can and take one more factor off my brain as to what could possibly cause another MC. I know that probably sounds negative and awful, but I've surprisingly been pretty calm this pregnancy so far, although I did just find out only a week ago.
