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!

Dragonfly - I'm the oldest of 5 sisters and 1 baby brother, and I love having my sisters - so you having a girl would not be a bad thing. It's a special relationship. I've only given birth to boys. One living who just turned 21 (I was 21 when I had him) and then Oscar stillborn 3 yrs ago. Both of those pregnancies, I was nauseous with lots of food aversions, Oscar being the worst. I'm hoping my lack of sickness means girl because that's what DH and I would prefer. We just blended families four years ago, and between the two of us, we have 4 boys and 1 girl, mostly teens - and we'd really like to counteract the testosterone in the house lol.
Neomasie - They said they'd start me on the cervix checks at 20 wks, but I get my next ultrasound at 12 wks. Who knows. I'm under the care of both the regular OB and the specialty MFM clinic, so I have double appts. That's because if my regular OB turns me over to the clinic completely, I can't give birth in the hospital that's just down the street from me, because the MFM clinic's hospital in in Norfolk, about 40 min away on a good day. Seems stupid to travel that far when I could literally walk to the hospital here. So....two sets of appts. Thank goodness there isn't co-pays with each, I'd be broke.

Calvingirl, glad you have had an easy 1st trimester. Mine wasnt that bad either. I think the aversions and not being able to eat anything was the worst, but it didnt hurt to lose a few lbs. I complained of my symptoms but they were pretty mild and more annoying than anything. I've battled insomnia on and off the last 5 yrs so it just felt a little worse cause i had some fatigue. All my symptoms have subsided to almost nothing now. I noticed btwn week 9 and 10 my bloat left and my stomach was flat again. It is starting ti bump a bit now at 11w3d. Same time as last pregnancy. Congrats on everything being healthy!

@calvingirl well double care sounds great. Albeit the frustration of double appointments seem tedious. I considered doing that this pregnancy but my OB is the one who missed the cervical checks last pregnancy and psychologically I'm not ready to deal with him this pregnancy so I'm only seeing my MFM. But between the two at least you'll get very thorough care.
@kelliria my symptoms were mild this pregnancy too and now I'm worrying about a flattened belly. Or trying to discern what's 'baby' and what's post op swelling. I hate when my mind plays tricks on me. Good luck with the fatigue. That's gotta be hard dealing with insomnia, too

@neomasie. So truely sorry to hear the loss of Oscar. I couldn't imaging what you are going through. When I was at the engagement party on Saturday, one of the girls there, her nephew was born with no lungs and it got missed on the ultrasounds. He was born a month early and passed a couple hours later. So heartbreaking to carry a baby to term and then having it ripped from your hands. I hope you get your girl as I really hope for a boy.
I am finding it hard to sit at my desk at work and do my work as I feel a hard spot on the right side so I am thinking it is the baby stretching or doing whatever and it's very uncomfortable. I never really had that problem with my daughter as I belive she was more in the middle. Hard to believe that tomorrow I will be half way there. Saw a little video on Facebook of a baby being transformed in the 9 months. It was wonderful to see that and amazing to see how things are formed inside.

@Kimberke. Welcome! I'm 33 as well and will be 34 when the baby is born and tomorrow I will be 20 weeks. This will be our last pregnancy for us. I go for my ultrasound on Monday morning and hope to find out the gender. You mentioned this is your 15 pregnancy but I only count 12 +1. Do you know what you are having? I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes smoothly with no complications and the progesterone shots work well for you.
Me and my coworker went for a short walk around the hospital and it was brutal. I was having the tightness in my belly or like a cramp; sort of like after you eat and you go for a jog. I was even taking my time and walking slower. So, I am not sure what all that means and hope that everything is okay or if it's normal. I remember some of you ladies talking about it happening to them.

@kimberke congrats and welcome! I just had my cerclage placed almost 2 weeks ago at 11 weeks. I had an invasive TAC placed! Lots of fun, lol. 12+ 5 today and going for a follow up tomorrow. I start progesterone at 16 weeks and will hear tomorrow when I start the biweekly cervix checks.
What kind of cerclage Do you have placed? Is it your first one?
Good luck with the rest of your journey.

Neomasie good luck with your follow up tomorrow, hope it all goes well.
Calvingirl so so sorry to hear about Oscar, I couldn't imagine how hard that must be for you.
Good luck Dragonfly23 for Monday, you must be bursting with excitement to find out what you are having :)
And welcome Kimberke and congratulations :) I'm currently 14+2 and now cruising along in the second trimester, after a rough first one, hoping feeling good last a good long time.
Unfortunately I can all ready feel my previous separated tummy muscles beginning to separate again, so will be in physio for this this is a couple of weeks, but doesn't seem to be hurting or effecting anything, it's just there xx
