Group for the BFPs

View Full Post

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, michelle! Welcome! Always nice to see a new face and belly! Lol.
Lakarmw, love the bump! I think you are carrying low. For me though, with both my girls, i have carried low, and all around big. My belly looked like snoopys nose with dd. I went 6 more weeks after this pic. Everyone had said boy with both and it has been wrong. My hips got big with my dd. My shape looked like yours does at about 18w. I say girl too.

Michelle00 - Welcome! How far along are you?

Lakarmw - Great bump, and yes, very low. I can't guess on gender because I've seen low be both girl and boy, but I love that you're not finding out. My other two pregnancies I didn't find out and I loved that moment the baby came out and we found out. I'll miss that with this one since we're finding out for the first time.

BB2018 - Welcome back and glad everything is going well. Your bump looks just like mine, so I feel more on track now. I've been feeling huge. RLS - Yes, I take meds for it but on bad nights, even those don't help. But buy some serious bags of epsom salts and take a bath in at least two cups of epsom salts before you go to bed. If you have a crappy bath, make it a sitz bath and just make is shallow but enough to cover your legs. Also I take Magnesium Malate supplement but run that by your OB first. Actually, it's good for you during pregnancy because it also lessens nausea and helps other symptoms. Nevertheless, OBs get a little nervous when you start a new supplement. Mine was suggested by my neurologist, and the "malate" form is better for pregnancy. The Oxide (i think) form helps constipation more though. Also, don't eat/drink anythign with artifical sweeteners and don't eat anything sweet a couple hours before bed. Both those are RLS triggers.

AFM, my 12 week scan went perfectly! Baby's HB was 174. No anamolies found and NT measurement was 1.5 - which is nice and low. I still haven't gotten my NIPT results yet but I have my OB appt. at 11am today with the regular Dr. so hopefully they'll have the results today and I get to find out if this little bump is a boy or a girl. I'd love a girl too, but I'm feeling boy. The baby was sucking his thumb in the u/s and all I could think of is my little 8yr old who we can't get to stop sucking his thumb. It made me tear cute.

@Lakrmw. In my opinion, I think it could be a girl but i could be wrong.

@calvingirl. Such a cute picture of him or her. I hope your results come back soon.

Thanks everyone, I definitely think girl too, still having a surprise, so will be a shock to be wrong, but I really don't mind.

Hey BB2018 I’m due 19th feb, things are pretty good for me. HCG is as it should be and it was 3000 last Tuesday. I have a dating scan on Tuesday this week, I think I’ll be 6 weeks if my dates are correct. I’ve been really nauseous the last few days but otherwise super great.

Congratulations on making it to 12 weeks must be so exciting! How are you feeling ??

Calvingirl, i love the u/s! I never had a 12w scan. I got one at 7w and that was it. I had 5 u/s with dd. I'm 16w today and just the 1. Kinda a bummer. I would love to compare them with my dds! I really hope you hear the results soon! Makes me anxious like with dragonfly! I groan every time i hear no news! Lol.
Michelle, the nausea is just starting? I hope it doesn't get too bad. Mine was sparce til about 8w. Then for 2w it was bad, then stopped at 10w. Praying it's not bad. Nausea is the worse for me!

Mrsj96 pleased to hear all is well, and I hope your nausea doesn't get too bad, I felt awfully sick from around 8-12 week and then it just stopped, luckily I was never sick xxx

Thank you @Lakarmw I’ve had a few vomits but haven’t felt nauseous today which has been nice. Have my dating scan tomorrow worried about not seeing a heart beat but I know I’m only 6 weeks so it’s a big possibility I won’t really trying not to get my hopes up!

Good luck for tomorrow oooh it's a hard one at 6 weeks, with my last baby I had a scan at 5 weeks and there was just a blob, and then one a 7 weeks and there was a little jelly bean with a heart beat xxx
