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!

@dragonfly23 I wouldn't take the senokot and just stick to the Metamucil. Not bc it's not safe, as it is, but it really cramps you up befor working. At least from my experience pre-pregnancy. I'd rather try the Metamucil, if it fails, increase the amount then maybe consider senokot. Just my opinion as I know all bodies are different.
@Lakarmw I'm trudging along day by day. Almost a week out and I can see some relief, albeit slightly. My lower back pain is subsiding and so is the abdomen pressure. Still a bit of wound pain and I'm looking forward to getting the staples out next week. Bladder spasms are lesseinjng by the day, too, which have been tough! Thanks for asking.
Now just trying to stay ahead of constipation which I was battling before the surgery and don't want to battle with stitches!

@neomasie. I won't take the senokot and let nature run its course.
With that being said and sorry for the tmi and mental picture. I gave myself a huge scare this morning and starting to get back to my normal self. I took a metamucil, ate an orange anfmd sone healthy brown bread. Anyway, I felt tge urge to go poop and things were going well until I think I strained too hard and tore part of the inside. I looked down in the toilet while sitting and I saw blood dripping. Seeing that didn't put me in an anxiety attack as I sort of knew it was from the back. I wiped the back and saw bright red. I wiped the front and nothing. Went pee a little bit ago and when I wiped there was hardly any blood. Of course I called my daddy as he has Chrohns and I pretty much have IBS but not confirmed as Chrohns and he told me it has happened to him when he hasn't gone in a few days. I was just really freaked out to see that much. On the bright side, I feel a lot better in my stomach/sides and sent hubby to get more fruit. Has this ever happened to anyone? I just want to feel the baby move to put my mind at ease. I don't know why this pregnancy has got me so worked up when my first went by with no worries.

Hi everyone, how is everyone getting on?
I'm now 14 weeks and finally seem to be feeling great :) my bump is getting very noticeable in a good way as there's no doubt I'm pregnant and not just chunky. Nausea seems to have subsided, I'm less tired than before, although still more tired than usual, I'm back to walking loads, which is making me feel healthier again. I've started for feel slight movement going on in my tummy, I think it's baby moving :) i can't be 100 percent just yet as it's still quite subtle, but I'm sure it'll get more noticeable and definite soon. I also listened to baby with my doppler and could feel the movement where the hb was.
Did you manage to sort the constipation Dragonfly23?
Neomasie I'm glad the pain seems to be easing for you a little. I hope all goes well with having the staples out.
Congratulations Amberelaine :) image no idea when it comes to hcg levels as I didn't have any taken that I'm aware of, but I hope all is progressing well xx

Thank you @Lakarmw every day is getting more bearable! I have an apt to hopefully get staples out Friday and see how baby is doing. Fx
Glad to hear the second tri is treating you much better! Im right behind you at 12+3. I'm slowly feeling an ease of symptoms too. However I've developed nausea and headaches right before bed which is weird.. But I read it's normal and could be due to my eating habits. Sometimes I think I feel baby slushing around too, but I can't decipher if it's the numbing going down or actual baby movements.
I hope everyone is doing well, especially the mommies who are finishing off the rough first tri!

Lakarmw, so happy to hear your progression! Im starting to show even though my weight is 5 lbs behind starting weight. Im sure it was from starting work and now i can eat better so the weight will prolly come back 2 fold now. I'm glad your feeling baby. That is how mine started. Little tickling, water gurgles. I described it like farting in a bath tub. Lol.????. Sorry if tmi!
Neomasie, im glad you are starting to feel better. Once you get staples out, the soreness gies away and hear baby, you will feel much better.
Dragonfly, i have felt the belly button pulls. It is like the baby is grabbing my navel cord and giving it a slight tug. I now remember it in my last pregnancy but at about 16w. It has happened about 5xs but only when i am lifting something a bit heavier like a box at work or my dd.
I have been doing good. Had my monthly appt at 11w1d yesterday. Hb good and had my NIPT maternit21 test. Only downfall is it takes 2w for results. The harmony test took 4 days. I have a different dr than last pregnancy though, so different test. It will close to when i could see on an u/s. I get chromosome results too so i went ahead with it.
These are new symptoms or ones that are gone. Nausea starting to subside. I dont get queasy near as much and i only get sick about 2xs a week. Boobs are back to normal plus a little bigger, vericose veins getting very painful, slight cramping but i remember from last time from growing uterus, belly getting hard right above pelvis, energy back to normal, bloat completely gone at about 9.5wks, because i walk so much and lift a lot, my pelvic bone feels like i got kicked in the crotch. Every step i put down feels like it is bruised and it is getting pushed. But i feel great!!!

@Kelliria. I have felt them too but not as much. Not sure what that means but hope the baby is just saying to relax and take your time walking.
Well, I am in a better mood than yesterday but feeling really tired as I woke up just before 5 as I was having a really bad dream and didn't want to be asleep through. Not sure if you ladies like horror movies but when you dream of the Saw Series then there is an issue lol. I woke up and figured I would just rest my hand on the right side of my tummy and I can definitely feel movement in there like he or she is waking up or just tossing and turning. It was great to feel. Last night, I got my hubby to put his hand on my right side as that is where I seem to feel the most activity and I had my hand on my left side and he says he couldn’t feel anything. I just told him that he is probably playing hide and seek on you. So, I have been feeling some more activity which is reassuring for me. The constipation part is slowly working. I take a Metamucil maybe once a day and that seems to help with everything. Less than a week, I finally get to see my baby at my 20 week ultrasound appointment and praying that I get news of having a boy and that everything is progressing well. If I remember correctly, my daughter was on my left side but I can’t be too sure anymore as that was a couple years ago. I do have a video when I was admitted in December for Braxton Hicks so I will take a look to see if I can see what side she was on by the movement. Hard part is, her head was down for many months so I don’t know how accurate that would be. Hope everyone else is doing well.

Everyone sounds like they are doing so well! I'm jealous of the movement - I have a few more weeks to wait as I'm only at 8wks today.
Lakarmw - 14 wks, that's wonderful! Glad everything is going ok.
Neomasie - glad the pain is going down, and you get to see baby on Friday - that's exciting! I have 4 more weeks to wait till my next scan.
Dragonfly - I'm on magnesium malate supplement from my sleep doctor to help with the severe restless leg syndrome I have, and it seems to have a side effect of lessening the constipation. I still have bad days, but most of the time, I'm ok. I have had it bad in the past as I have IBS too, and that has totally happened to me (the blood) before. Freaked me out too!
Amberelaine - Congratulations!
Kelliria - Glad to hear when the bloat started to go away. I feel like it's starting to this week. I look skinnier than I did last week, and my weight is down about a lb. I certainly feel better. I haven't told work yet, so I'm ok with the bump holding off for a few weeks, but that bloat sucked!! I couldn't fit into anything.
AFM, I've been incredibly lucky this pregnancy so far and have had no nausea, no significant headaches and no smell aversions so far. I'm a bloodhound, but none of it is making me nauseous. My last pregnancy with my angel, I was sick from 4 wks on. This one is so different. I still feel baby, and I have stretching cramps and what feels like mild Braxton hicks contractions in the afternoon. I hate to call it that because I read it's the uterus contracting to stretch, and most people don't notice, but I'm hyper aware of what that feels like because of my history. Fatigue is pretty bad, as well as acne and heartburn, but on the whole, this is a pretty smooth 1st trimester so far. I'm hungry all the time, but can only eat a little at a time. I'm being monitored by both my OB and our Maternal Fetal Medicine clinic as high risk, so I get my NIPT genetic testing draw in two weeks, and then genetic counseling and my next ultrasound two weeks after that. I could literally know the gender in just a month!! that's crazy to me. Last time I was pregnant, they didn't have that option. They said after 20 wks, I'll get almost weekly scans to make sure my cervix is holding up and baby is growing on schedule (stillborn had interuterine growth retardation, so they want to make sure this baby doesn't.) I'm going to love seeing baby so often, but almost worry it's too many scans and they're gonna kill brain cells or something. Anyone else high risk?
