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!

Yep, my clothes are officially getting uncomfortably tight and I have a pooch already. When I suck in my stomach it still bulges out right where our Jelly Bean will be but it's definitely still too squishy to be her. I'm guessing my uterus is shoving all my other organs up there already!
Hubs and I have decided we're not going to tell his parents about the pregnancy this week... They live in FL, us in OH, and we're both just so peeved that she pulled hubs away last time to ask that we don't even want to tell her anymore. I decided I'm probably going to wear my maternity shirts when we're there and maybe even some elastic banded pants but unless she notices and says something, we won't. Lol ugh, you'd think someone who had 4 kids and some miscarries would have the decency to not outright ask. MIL's... Ugh. Lol this is going to be a long week!
My next appointment is at 13 weeks on May 30... I SO hope they try to find baby's heartbeat on doppler so we can start telling other important people! Thank God you ladies exist to vent to

Hi, ladies! I've been mia lately but i started my new job, daughter was sick with a yucky nose and thurs a fever. That's when i started work. Work is tough. I work in the deli at Costco. They don't slice meat though. They prepare ready to heat meals where you just throw in the oven and eat. I buy a lot of food from there and is pretty good. It is about 45° and the floor is slippery wet. We lift a lot of frozen boxes, use 4 ft wide mixers, and stuff. I like it so far. My upper back was on fire first few days from lifting and bending over the tables. It's ok now. We make a lot. We did 35 18" pizzas yesterday, 200 enchalada bakes, ect. Everything is family sized.
I have been feeling completely normal with no symptoms. I have been finding the babys hb with my home doppler since 8w2d! Took me a minute but i know where to look now. It's funny, i was so cautious not lifting over 10lbs with my dd. Now, i carry her everywhere and my work is physical. I am careful though. I figured I'd tell my manager in a few weeks because i don't know how long I'll be able to do a few things and want him to know soon. I hope they dont let me go because i am i 90 day probationary period. I cant hide it 3 more months. Ill be 5+m by then.
Tryingafteraloss, i have never heard of them the whole pregnancy? I had a uti with dd and jyst took a normal round of antibiotics. Hopefully, that's what she meant. I would get a second opinion on taking them the whole pregnancy.
Dragonfly, good luck on hearing your hb. I'm sure you will this time. You are much farther along now. Crossing my fingers for you!

@tryingafterloss i have not heard of antibiotics for the duration of pregnancy but perhaps your doc is being overly cautious as an infection can cause pre-term labour/pprom. From my history of loss, my docs are starting to piece together that an infection may have caused my cervical incompetence. *disclaimer-not medical advice, just my take on my situation

Im glad someone mentioned about a UTI and antibiotics. I believe I have a UTI as the last week the odor is so strong when I use the bathroom it takes my breath away. I am trying hard to up my water intake. I agree taking antibiotics for a whole pregnancy is a little over the top unless it's a high risk pregnancy.
WARNING, TMI: Yesterday and today I had weird spotting. Yesterday was in discharge. Today I've only had 1tiny spot of red. My next appointment is on Wednesday so I'm trying to hold off till then and not stress. I only bled in my last pregnancy and he's obviously fine. But its been 10 years.
Hoping everyone else is doing well!

Morning ladies. I'm still here and didn't need to delete my account. My appointment went well and measuring on time, with a heartbeat (yes, I finally heard it ) of 146bpm. I literally cried when I heard it. I have to go back next Monday to discuss my anxiety but I am sure that hearing the hearbeat will take it all away. He says the gurgles could be the baby kicking and should be able to start feeling it in another week.
@Midnightrose3. I hope the spotting isn't serious and that it stops for you. Try not to worry as I am sure all is well.

@dragonfly - so happy for you that the scan went well and you heard the HB. That's wonderful!
@midnightrose - Hopefully your spotting is just a random cervix thing, especially since it stopped.
@Neomasie - how was your stitch? Did you get it put in? Was it painful? I'm worried in case I might have to have one - my cervix was really damaged with last birth, and I'm not sure how strong it'll be for this one.
@Tryingafterloss - Yeah, that seems weird to take antibiotics the whole time, because if you became immune to them and then developed another resisitent infection later on, that would be bad. Plus, can you imagine the yeast infections you'd have??
Keeping hydrated is really important, and because I'm extra paranoid, I ordered the strips that they have you pee on in midwife appts? It measures leukocytes (white blood cells - infection), protein, sugar, etc. in your urine, so if you get a positive, you can bring it to the attention of your doctor. Here's the link of what I'm talking about - https://www.amazon.com/Parameter-Urinalysis-Infection-Diabetes-Gallbladder/dp/B00XIKQCJC
You can talk to your doctor and ask if you can take a regular run of the antibiotics, then use these strips to make sure the infection doesn't come back. If it does, you can do another run of antibiotics. Instead of continuous... Just an idea.
My DH thinks I got them just to have something to pee on - after so long TTC, I'd developed a serious POAS addiction lol. But they make me feel better, so it's worth the $18.
