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!

Rameina and mrsjr96, im so happy for you! It seems so long ago i got my bfp at 9dpo and was petrified. I still get nervous about it and im almost 15w. I cant wait to hear your all's and flamingogirls progression!
Calvingirl, im sorry to hear about the test. My dr said she could have gave me the test at 9w but waited til 11w cause she said it would be more accurate then. You are showing a lot for only being 11 wks! I thought i was but not like you. I was bigger with my 1st than second so far at this stage. I got the bloat for 3wks early on then my stomach flattened back out for awhile. Im still down a few lbs since i found out. 147 start to 142 at 14w6d. I started working again about the time i got my bfp so that probably helped with my weight. Keep us updated on everything!

Hi Ladies! I've been MIA for a long time , I know! I read back through every ones posts and it sounds like everyone is doing really well and moving along!!!
Congratulations to the newcomers!
For those that remember my background story, ( living in a cabin while trying to build a house which actually is still a tough going and still no foundation yet) I finally broke the baby news to my parents with a baby poem and a photo if the first sonogram and our family picture. Unfortunately, no one in my family is happy and no one has acknowledged by baby. ( Although finally after 2 weeks grandmother asked how I am feeling) but other than that, my parents, aunts, uncle , cousins etc have not even said anything or liked any of my fb posts about the baby. :(
On the other hand, my hubby's family, who I actually do not care for as much, are all happy for us. My stepson's mom is super happy for us and my church family have all been super supportive which is so nice especially when I told them the circumstances if our living situation.
On a happy note, I am 12 weeks and 3 days. My 3 oldest children came with me to my ultrasound appt and we got to see Baby and hear the heartbeat! Let me tell you 4D sonograms are the best thing ever! I loved that I could see my little baby's whole body in perfect form instead of just the outline. Heartbeat is a strong 158bpm! I so cannot wait till the next one in 6 weeks!
Hope everyone is doing well!

Glad your found baby ok tryingafteraloss :) dopplers are very reassuring.
How's everyone's weekend been mama's?
I seem to be getting bigger by the day and little one seems to get more and more active, my husband can even feel his/her kicks sometimes now too. I feel really well but at times very emotional, all seems to be going ok. Tomorrow I have my whooping cough vaccine, so not really looking forward to that one :( xx

Hi @Lakarmw weekend was good. Quiet and restful. I'm a literal loaf from friday night to sunday night, laying about as much as possible and getting as much rest as I can. I'm also feeling a lot more emotional these days. I cried saturday for the first time in a long time. I'm getting anxious as I get closer to the gestational week I lost my daughter, fearing a repeat with this baby. I've been trying to map out this pregnancy with milestones-1st was getting through the stitch surgery and 2nd is getting past 23 weeks. 3rd is getting to the 3rd trimester and 4th is obviously delivery. It feels like this trimester is creeping along and its really messing with my emotions. i'm miserable to live with and be around and I feel so bad for my husband. I'm considering getting back into counselling to deal with the anxiety.
I'm so glad to hear your little one is getting more and more active by the day. How fun! Feeling baby from the outside is the ultimate joy. It makes the whole experience so much more real and tangible! Good luck at your vaccine tomorrow.

Hi Neomasie, sounds like we are in the same boat emotion wise, I describe it as every emotion have is on steroids, so sad I'm crying, happy, I'm exactic, grumpy is very grumpy etc such a rollercoaster.
Sorry your feeling anxious again, it really is understandable with your history though, all you can do is relax as much as possible, counselling may not be a bad idea to help with anxiety, you don't want it taking over completely so you don't enjoy it at all.
I can all ready begin to feel myself worrying about my anomaly ultrasound I have 2 weeks on Friday.... I was feeling relaxed until someone I know a few weeks ahead, had a problem found with the babys kidneys, it's nothing too serious and treatable but it wasn't expected so it just brings into reality that they don't always go as planned so I'm keeping my fingers crossed everything looks good when I go for mine xx

@lakarmw thank you for the supportive words. indeed, it like every emotion is on steriods! Once i have a break in my work schedule i'll plan a session with a counsellor. My anxiety has already overtaken my enjoying this pregnancy. When i start to get excited, i actually 'catch' myself and remind myself-nothing is guaranteed.
Praying that everything goes well at your anomaly scan. And for all the mamas and babys in this group. Its hard to accept that sometimes things just dont go according to plan in a pregnancy, but we've got to keep the faith and remind ourselves that more often than not, everything does go according to plan and thats what we need to focus on!

Neomasie, sorry you have such bad anxiety. I understand some of your fear. My 1st died about 7w1d and i didnt find out til after 13w. I carried it for over 6w and it had passed. Nearing the 7w mark and up til now has been rough. I eased a bit after my 11w scan but like you, i still realize anything can happen at any time. I just pray and listen to my doppler a lot. To have that anxiety much longer woulda definitely taken a toll. Praying for you!
Tryingafteraloss, congrats!!!! Yea! I'm team girl too!
Went to the dr yesterday and i heard hb. I have only had one u/s @ 7w. I am 15w 3d today. I guess my 2nd u/s is next time at 19w 2d for my anamoly scan. I was bummed cause i thought for sure i had like 3 by now. I'll have to check but i guess it doesnt matter cause i didn't get one. Lol. Her hb sounded good.
It's miserable at my house right now. The heating and air unit outside quit working Mon night and the guy can't come look at it til tomorrow afternoon. It has been in the 90s. Super miserable. I am so used to modern things i dont know how they did it before electric, deoderant, fans, toothbrush and paste, soap, ect.
Been feeling great except for my crotch throbbing if i walk very long. The best way i can describe it is maybe like I had sex too long and hard and it gets that throbbing, thumping ache. Like it's swollen or something. If i put pressure on it it feels better. It's not inside but just around vagina opening. Similar to smashing your finger and then putting your hand down by your side and it starts throbbing and feels warm as the blood rushes to it. Swollen like everything is about to fall out. I tried a belly support band but the tightness made it worse. May be the extra blood flow to the area? Had a fill in dr and he had no clue. Asked if i was burning or discharging. My female dr may understand better. I cant wait to see her next month.
I am feeling good otherwise. Hungry a lot and really showing now.
