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!

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 up...so cute.

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 ??

Congratulations Mrsjr96, and good luck on your scan. that you see the HB!
Kelliria, yeah, my nausea was like that too. Settled in late at 9 wks, and only stayed for about 10 days. It was a sucky 10 days and I missed a bit of work because I just couldn't function. I can't imagine you ladies with HG or with bad morning sickness. I'd lose my job.
STILL WAITING!! I retook the NIPT on June 14th, and it's still pending. It's supposed to take 5-7 calendar days (Natera told me that) and it's been 11. At this point, I almost don't want to know. I'm so depressed and grumpy today.

Good morning ladies. How is everyone feeling today? I've been blessed to not have morning sickness or nausea. The only thing I notice now is have a sick feeling in my stomach shortly after I take my prenatal vitamine and I've never been like that. First day back at work and I am the only one here until after lunch so it's going to be a long morning but I have lots of work to catch uo on.
@calvingirl. I hope your results come in soon. But I am sure the wait will be worth it in the end.
