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!

Neomasie, if i had a boy and a girl already, i would have let it be a surprise. I think the suspense would have been invigorating. I wanted to know asap bucause i had a mmc at 13w and it passed at 7w1d. I never knew if it was a boy or a girl to name him/her. I just call him/her Charlie. That is a family name and is gender neutral. I wanted to know so if something did happen again, i would know so i could name properly. That is provably the biggest wonder in my life.

dragonfly - I didn't circumcise my son (he's 21 now) and it was the best decision I ever made. There's no special care specifically in the beginning. Boys pull the foreskin back themselves naturally as they play with it, and before that, it's locked sort of - the skin is tight and doesn't retract. This is GOOD and you should NOT pull it back or let a doctor/nurse do so. It's the boy's version of a hymen and keeps bacteria out. Once it's been pulled back (anytime from 3 yrs old to 12 yrs old, and boys are so proud, they usually show you lol) then you just teach your son to pull it back in the shower and rinse. Until then, baths are awesome. You have to watch for (just like a girl) yeast infections. My son got an infection once as a toddler, and it was gross, but some hydrogen peroxide and a qtip and it cleared right up. Really, caring for girl parts is way more complicated.
Oh, and remember to tuck it down when diapering. If penis is placed wrong, they pee right out a leg hole, or up and soak their shirt lol.
I love boys. I don't know baby girls...that makes me nervous. I only know my nieces, so I've heard stories of multiple yeast infections and itchy private parts, or allergic reactions to bubble bath, etc. We're so complicated!

ladies, does anyone else feel like all their organs are already squished to the max? Every time i eat even a medium-sized meal, I feel like im going to explode and I need to lie down almost immediately! I'm only 14 weeks! And I wonder if I feel like this now, God help me once I get to 37/38 weeks.

@ neomasie me! I’m 13 weeks today and have been feeling like this for a week! Can’t eat a full meal! Also, the dreaded round ligament pain has set in and I can only stand/walk for a short time before needing a sit down! Been getting dizzy spells since end of 11th week. Thankfully my nausea is waning now! Bring on trimester two!! Lol

Only 10 wks here and always hungry, but never can eat enough because my stomach is too small. Then when I do eat, I feel sick afterwards. No dizzy spells yet though, but the fatigue has set in and every morning I wake up feeling hungover with a huge headache and sour stomach. I drink plenty, but I feel like crap till I drink and eat something in the morning.

I seem to do okay. Eating lots and still feel fine. No nausea. I've been blessed this pregnancy minus the ability to not walk far as it aches in my belly. Been feeling little kicks here and there but good otherwise.Just at my doctor's appointment to discuss my ultrasound and maybe hoping to sneak in one final ultrasound but I have a feeling that I won't which is fine.

@tryingafterloss @calvingirl yes, that's exactly what i'm feeling. like my stomach has shrunk. And although my appetite is normal, I can barely accommodate anything in there. very annoying. I'm just glad the nausea is over. Overall, I'm already feeling better this trimester except for the above and some aches and pains.
@dragonfly an anterior placenta means your placenta is towards the front of your belly, rather than the back. This usually means you're feeling kicks later or less frequently than normal. But its nothing to be concerned about.

Hi, mamas! Glad to hear everyones update! Calvingirl, perdect description. Hungover. I was like that from about 9w-12w. Now, at 13w2d, it is mostly fatigue, occassionally, i have. It went away about 9w but has came back the last 4 days or so. I'm not sick anymore, not peeing all the time, no sore boobs. Having little belly cramps but it is round ligament pain. I'm enjoying my days right now. I forget I'm pregnant a lot cause i feel like my nornal self. Her heartbeat is good, i listen occassionally with the doppler. Next appt is the 21st.
