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!

Kelliria - CONGRATS!! I'm so excited for you! I want a girl badly. Have a house full of boys right now :) I get my blood taken next week for my panorama test (same genetic test, different brand) and we've chosen to find out gender this time too. I should know by my 12 wk apt on June 21.

Dragonfly23 - I hope that round vs. oval belly thing is real, because I'm totally round so far, and showing way more than I did with my son. I'm glad though - I want a big 8lber. Oscar was only 4lbs, 14oz full term because my placenta sucked and I didn't eat enough. I actually lost 10 lbs and I'm not an overally chubby woman. My goal is to grow a big baby this time!! So Fat it is.

SheRiskers - Congrats on a wonderful 13 wk apt! So excited for you.

AFM - I told my supervisor today. I needed to this early because right now, we're planning for proposals that will come out when I'm on maternity leave and they need to know I won't be available. Plus, I'm showing and it's getting harder to hide.

She was supportive, but she's leaving in two weeks for another position, so now in about 30 minutes, I have to go tell the big boss who will be my new supervisor. Hopefully she's as supportive. I asked in an email for 15 minutes of her time today and I think she thinks I'm going to quit lol. (I'm totally not. I love my job.) Anyway, I have an office job with flexibility to work from home if doc says I have to, so it should be fine. I'm still nervous though because it's a primarily male environment (although the boss is a woman) and not sure how my blue collar co-worker guys are going to handle it. It takes a lot to get any respect here and I was just starting to earn it.

Yay yay on the little girl @Kelliria so happy for you! And thrilled that your tests came back great!

I want a little girl so bad! But I'm not sure we'll find out gender this time around. Part of me really wants to but part of me is trying to avoid getting attached in case something goes wrong again. womp womp

Hey ladies!! I had my 12w2d ultrasound appointment! I’ve posted a pic on my profile! Baby was very active bouncing around in there! I cried a bit when I saw him/her moving around. Heartbeat of 158bpm. Now I can’t wait for my next appointment! Lol. Hoping we can see the gender at the next ultrasound!
I hope everyone is doing well! @dragonfly23 congrats on having a lil boy! I’m kinda hoping for the same!
@ Kelliria congrats on having a girl! ??

Calvingirl, it is a relief to tell your boss. I just hope it goes well with the new boss. I have been on my job at costco for less than a month. I am 12w4d. I was afraid because of the 90 day period but he was happy for me. He has 3 daughters and is younger than me so i was more comfortable. I didnt tell him the due date yet. He said to just try and wait til after christmas. He was joking but i held back she is due dec 9.
I cried so hard when i found out gender. The hormones got me. I was hoping for a boy since i have a girl, but girl are all in my family. Like 98% of all the kids born since the 50s have been girls on my moms side. I have my brother and uncle only. Lol. Ik the male determins but...... I am thrilled with a girl because she is healthy. My dd will have a little sister to grow up with. I dont have to get much stuff. I know how to care for girls. The list goes on. Now i can name hunt. Janice and teresa and on top right now. My mothers name is teresa and my only aunt, janice, died at 13 of cancer. My dd is named after my grandma, Ruthie. When i was younger, i would have never chose any of those names cause they sound old. I am beyond that now. They are special names just like my children are special.

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!

@ 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.
