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!

Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA, but I’m back today and tried to catch up on all your posts…. Wow, time really is flying by!
Kelliria – congrats on your great test results and for your baby girl on the way!!! I listen to my baby’s heart beat with my home Doppler once a day and it’s usually between 150-161! What is your girls range at?
Dragonfly – congrats to you on your growing baby boy!! So happy to see you got what you wanted! And yayyyyy for feeling kicks now!! More than halfway there to meeting your sweet prince!
Tryingafterloss – OMG so exciting! Must’ve been so cool to see an actually form of a baby at this ultrasound! I can’t wait for that!!! When is your next ultrasound scheduled for?
Calvingirl – I’m debating telling my boss soon, because even though I’m only 10 weeks, I have a belly already and it’s hard to hide it!! How did it go with your big boss?
neomasie – I feel the same way you do in regards to eating and feeling so full! Every time I eat a meal of any kind, I feel that way. If I only snack, I don’t, but meals – every single time! I also feel nausea in the am until I eat something. I find mints REALLY help me when I get that nausea feeling any other time of the day so I carry some in my purse at all time just in case.
Lady-patton – congrats on your BFP!! Is this your first? How are you feeling? How far along are you? Have you been trying? We need details woman! lol
Lakarmw – glad to hear all is going well for you and the baby! I also have a shorter fuse than usual lol… by “pushchair” do you mean stroller? If so, I picked out a whole travel system for my baby registry – it’s a car seat, base and stroller all in one! Then I just added an extra base for my bf’s car.
AFM – I’m currently 10w5d and I had my NIPT bloodwork done last Friday 6/1 that will test for down syndrome and a few chromosomal abnormalities as well as give us the gender!! I should have those results by this Friday my doctor said, so I have been waiting for what feels like an eternity!! I pray all is well and my bf and I both hope we are having a girl! I have my 12 week ultrasound to check the nuchal translucency next Friday – and I am just SO EXCITED to see a bigger baby at that appt!!!! I listen to the HB every day on my Doppler at home and it ranges from 155-161 most of the time which I heard is a sign of a girl, but I think it sounds more like a train than a galloping horse and they say that’s more of a sign of a boy… guess I’ll find out for sure in a couple more days!!! Also have my 18 week anatomy ultrasound scheduled for August 1st… other than that I feel pretty good, just a bit of nausea in the am before I eat and sometimes around 3-5pm timeframe. I’m so excited to find out the gender and then share with all our family and friends and post it on Facebook! Has anyone else told all their family yet or are you about to as well??

@dragonfly23 you're referring to the Doona? I think its so convenient for those early months. But it is a limited time use stroller/carrier so thats my only issue with it. By 6/7 months baby tends to outgrow it. If i had the money to get one in addition to a full travel system later on, I would definitely get one

Good luck for tomorrow bb2018 :) how exciting :)
Hehe pushchair :) makes me smile, we do have strollers here too, but we call the umbrella fold, light weight ones that you tend to put older toddlers in strollers.
I still can't decide at all, I probably won't buy or order one until after my 20 anomaly scan just in case.
Dragonfly23 have you looked at buggy boards of you don't want to buy a double? My daughter was very Good at walking by 2.5 and she never sat in a pushchair again once she was that age, she would walk everywhere, so I just had a buggy board on the back of my single "pushchair" for her to hop on once her legs got tired. The one I had was the Lascal Maxi and it was great, still really easy to push.
Just like this. The picture is just a google one, but my kids :)

Lakarmw, i love that buggy board! I have never seen one. I like the looks of the bassinet type stroller but it would seems that the baby would grow out quickly. Not many ppl in the states use those anymore. They are all just regular strollers that the car seat can click into when they are small mostly. I was gonna buy a double stroller but will look into the board instead. My dd is 2yr 3m and very tall at 39 inches (99cm). My kids are gonna be bean poles. Their dad is 6'10" (208cm).

Wow that is really tall :) Shes alomst as tall as my 6 year old, however her 4 year old brother is taller and heavier than her now too. The buggy boards are brilliant, they also do them with little seats on them too, although I haven't actually used one of those :)
Here in the UK, the travel systems come with the chair, the bassinet, and then the car seats clip on too all on to the same frame, as they don't advise using car seats for more than around an hour at a time here, it does seem like a lot of stuff to have, I'm still undecided about the bassinet part though as my baby is due November and with the terrible weather here in the UK at that time of year I wonder how much we will be outside anyway xxx

Well I did it. I made a decision got a huge bargain and went for the Icandy Peach. There was a bargain I just couldn't miss, they usually retail at £999 and someone I know was selling theirs, only 4 months old, in perfect condition at £250, as they were struggling to fit it in their car and wanted rid asap. I'm feeling quite lucky now but hoping I haven't jinxed anything by buying before my next scan, but I couldn't miss a bargain like that on the travel system I love. The bassinet (we call them carrycots) seat unit and car seat, all fit on the frame, and the seat unit is parent and world facing :) Am I crazy?
