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 and Lakarmw - your announcements sound so nice!! I will be 13 weeks the week of June 25th... I would like to announce it then because I am very open with my friends and family and keeping this is killing me inside LOL. I'm not sure what kind of announcement I want to do... my boyfriend has two kids - a 13 year old girl and a 6 (will be 7 in Nov) year old boy... I know the boy will be fine with me being pregnant, but the girl, I'm not really sure and I'm a little worried. I know no matter how she feels when we tell her once the baby comes she will be like mama number 2 to her/him! It's just getting her to that point that may be a challenge. Maybe once the baby starts kicking me and she can see it she will get excited if she isn't when we tell her.
4thBabyforMe - CONGRATS and welcome to this group of amazing women! I found out I was pregnant super early too! Right now I'm just over 5 weeks pregnant. I'll find out exact due date when I go for my ultrasound next Friday - May 11th! I cannot wait to hear the heartbeat and set my mind at ease a bit!
midnightrose3 - I think it's good you told your employer - if she is pregnant too, she may need time to find someone to help her for when you won't be around. I think that was a really nice thing to do. Why was her husband not happy about it? You are giving them PLENTY of notice!
I can't wait to tell people. I've told those I'm closest to, I told 2 of my aunts, 2 of my cousins and about 5 of my friends. After suffering through 2 miscarriages, I feel I need all the love and positive vibes and comfort from those who know me best, so that's why I told so many. I plan to tell my closest work friend when she gets back from her trip as well. I know you're not supposed to tell anyone til you're in second trimester, but I say eff it LOL. I'm gonna tell who I want, when I want and I know they'll love on me and support me through the pregnancy just like I need. And, lots of them are mamas and anything that I go through I can ask them and get answers and feel better about what I may be experiencing. Anywho - I plan to tell everyone/post on my FB the last week in June - just not sure how I want to do it... maybe make it Christmas or New Years related depending when the dr says my due date is. Like "we'll be popping a different kind of bottle in 2019" or "this Christmas we'll be receiving the best gift ever! Baby B is due to come December __!" Idk, just kinda tossing ideas around in my head and looking stuff up on Pinterest. I am just counting down the days til May 11th for my first ultrasound... I know seeing/hearing the baby's heartbeat will ease my mind like WHOA! My symptoms come and go and I'm just trying to stay relaxed and calm and do all the things I'm supposed to do til then.
Who else has a big appt/ultrasound coming up soon?

@Lakarmw. I'm on baby #2 and couldn't believe how big my belly got. They say that second, third, etc the bellies get bigger sooner and things happen sooner as in stretching. I still get mild cramping and stuff like that but it comes and goes. I hope your scan goes well on Friday and things are progressing smoothly.

Aww thank you ladies!! Having you all here really helps me make it through the days!! THANK YOU!!
dragonfly23 - I love that poem - super cute!!
I swear I already have a bloated belly - it happened right away last time too... like I can't button my pants and I used an elastic today...yup, and I'm only 5 weeks, I'm in trouble! I heard you can bloat in beginning, then it can go down, then it can come back? idk how much truth there is to that because I have only made it as far as 8w5d.
Here is my belly from last week

Lakarmw yours totally looks like a bump and not bloat like mine does lol, but you are also further along than me.
dragonfly23 your bump is so cute!!

@SheRiskers. So glad that everything is going along smoothly. That is a high heart rate. Maybe you are right and you are having a girl. Yeah, it does seem like eternity but I am sure it will be here before you know it. I am counting down the days till my ultrasound; 26 more days lol. I am a bit nervous about my doctor's appointment on Monday and whether or not he can find the heartbeat. I assume he will be able to find it as I would be 17 weeks and 4 days by then. I honestly still think it is a boy because they sit lower in the belly.

@Lakarmw. Thank you for the reassurance. I feel pulses down below and my belly is still hard. So, in your opinion since you had a boy, could that be why they can't find mine or is it still different for everyone? I honestly think I would cry (of joy) if it turns out I am having a boy as then I would have one of each.
So, every day I ask my hubby if he has told anyone and he keeps telling me no he hasn't; just his brother but he has a tendency to have a big mouth. So, I just asked, can I post my comment on Facebook and he says go ahead. So, I'm still procrastinating. Was going to post it tomorrow as then I would be exactly 17 weeks. Then I thought, should I wait till after my gender ultrasound to change the wording to a he or she or should I just post it tomorrow and then I can let people know after the ultrasound the gender. Thought came to me lol, I think I will post it tomorrow and then when it comes time then I can repost it and change it to a he or she and then change the ultrasound picture. What do you ladies think? I am so nervous about posting it and I can't decide which picture to use. Full body or just the face? (sigh)
