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!

Hi Ladies, just a quick pop up to say Hi! I do have a question for you guys. Well a few questions. Lol. 1) are any of you exercising and if yes, what are you doing? I'm having issues with my weight and being so short-winded. I don't want to lose weight because of my body but because health wise I need to for sake of myself and my baby. My dr said to try not to lose more than fifteen but she said she will gladly monitor this.
2 question, Is anybody else experiencing cramping? I don't know if it's because I am older this time around, but I feel immense cramping and feel like I can't eat or drink much without already feeling full. Its down right awful. I was doing well but my pregnancy is hitting me hard this week and do not remember these feelings with the others.

Midnight- I'm not exercising, but probably should be. Once the pool opens, I'll be in there every chance I get. That's nice and low impact. I've been crampy too and I have good days and bad. It's the pressure that's killing me. I'm always hungry but already can't easy much because I feel so bloated and full all the time. Plus, I feel like if I sneeze, baby will shoot out. It's crazy feeling that way this early, and my cervix measured fine today so it's not that. So yeah, I hear you. You are not alone.

@midnightrose3. I am cramping a bit. This is my second pregnancy and I heard that you will cramp sooner as things will stretch quickly if you already been pregnant before. The only exercise I do is walking but I have been finding that a 15 minute walk to work has got me sore in the stomach.
My evening has been horendous. I ended up calling the health line because I was having really bad left side and stomach pains plus some lower cramping. It almost got me having an anxiety thinking there is something wrong with my baby. However, I thought I felt a little push at my belly button so it calmed me down a bit and still hearing some girgling but not a lot. I remembered with my first pregnancy on how constipated I was and the inability to poop very well as I suffer from IBS. The nurse says I can take metamucil 3x a day so I will pick some up while I am at work tomorrow. I also asked the health nurse about my walking pains and she says that I could be walking too fast, which could be a possibility as I am a fast walker and she also says that my body might not be set for the long walks. We will see what tge morning brings. I too have a couple questions. 1. With me being this constipated, will it be a cause for not feeling the kicks as well as I should and would the baby run out of room? All I want is to feel the kicks to set my mind at ease. 2. I have been thinking of getting a fetal doppler for awhile. Will it be worth to invest in one (last baby) to check the heart beat every now and then or would it cause more stress and anxiety should I not find him one day because he is playing hide and seek on mommy? If so, which one would you suggest (pictures)? I appreciate any kind of feedback.

Calvingirl, yea! I have been thinking of you for a few days. I was stressed before my u/s and didnt get on here much. There is a certain sigh of relief when you hear the hb.
Midnightrose, i exercise but not regular exercise. I am on my feet for 8hr continuously walking. I lift 10-40 lb boxes, and stir cold/frozen foods with upper body from 4ft mixing bowls, ect. Then on days off, i clean house grocery shop for another 8 hrs. So i am always busy. I get crampy sometimes but it is from overdoing it. I dont eat mear as much this pregnancy bc i feel full all the time. Haven't gained but a few lbs.

Dragonfly, i accidently sent before i got to you. Lol. It doesnt matter about the constipation and room. I asked my dr last pregnancy and he said our digestive track slows diwn and a lot of the nutrients is absorbed in the body and not made into waste. He said some ladies carry multiples and they have plenty of room so a little constipation wont harm him. I was worried about straining too hard. I am sorry you are cramping. Could the cramps be from constipation? They can be brutal. I really hope you feel better, girl! I love my doppler. I pd 40$ for it. I keep in mind about may not being able to hear it so if i dont pick it up, i try later in the day/next morning and find it.

Hope your feeling better today Dragonfly23. In my opinion if I were as far along as you, I wouldn't bother to get one, you're so so close to having jabs and kicks round the clock. I personally put them away once the proper movement starts as I think that's a much better way of knowing how baby is doing than using a doppler, I think they're most useful early on, before you can feel baby, but obviously only you can decide and weigh up how much it's worth getting that reassurance for yourself :)
So glad to hear your ultrasound went well calvingirl :)
Midnightrose3 i usually walk around 15-20 miles per week, so I am trying to continue that for as long as I can. i have also experienced cramps, nothing too major just more annoying and there, I guess it's everything growing xxx

Dragonfly – I have the same Doppler as Kelliria! My best friend gave it to me and she used it with all 3 of her boys and she said after she turned 10 weeks she heard heartbeat just about daily. I’m going to try to hold out til 10 weeks til I start to try to find the baby’s heartbeat because I don’t want to freak myself out if I can’t find it – I have a bit of anxiety too and I’m not sure when they’ll schedule my next ultrasound? I have my first appt w/new dr next Wednesday and it can't come fast enough!! This in between waiting is the pits! lol
