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!

I just called and my results are still pending....geez. Where's my instant gratification! I wish blood tests were as quick as facebook quizzes.
Kelleria - I've had that early wake up thing the last two mornings too. I was hoping it was a fluke. This morning it was before 6 (very unlike me) and I had the kicks so bad (RLS), that I couldn't go back to sleep and had to wake up and try to doze in my armchair.
Dragonfly - ooo..Dads know. I hope it goes ok, and you can get past the fear of revealing it to your family so you can enjoy the rest of your time. Maybe it won't be as bad as you fear? I wish you all the luck.
AFM, nauseous and dizzy at work. Was in a meeting with a projector and some ppt slides, and I swear, the screen was blinking and shaking and I felt like I was going to go into a seizure looking at it. I had to look away before I got motion sickness. Also very crampy but not AF crampy. I looked at my journal for my last pregnancy with Oscar in 2015, and it said I was crampy every day from the beginning till 10wks, and then afterwards on certain days that I was having growth spurts.

@calvingirl. I hope so too. I have to call him today to remind him so he doesn't forget and I can almost feel the anxiety/nervousness creeping in. I feel like I am coming down with something as my head feels funny, and I can feel it in my nose and throat, so I picked up some orange juice. I just wish I could take Neocitrin as that is what I always take when I am coming down with something. I do have Halls Centres that I can take but I just limit the amount because of the cough syrup. I totally hear you about the blood tests and how they should be quick like the Facebook quizzes. I've been doing different ones and they all practically say, you will have a boy, you will have a girl, or there will be a child coming. Like really, can't they just give me something else besides that . I am sure you will get your results soon and that they will be fine. Keep us posted.

109 first beta draw!! 13dpo!! Not bad at all! Also my progesterone was a good 34.8, so I don't have to be on supplements! Yay! I'm actually pregnant!! This feels so weird... Going back tomorrow afternoon to do the second draw and see if it's doubling ok, which is the important thing, but I feel more pregnant every day so I'm less worried about that.

Calvingirl, yea for your numbers! Im glad that helps relieve some stress. Can't wait to hear the next draw!
Dragonfly, I'm so glad your parents took it well! I have my mom to go. I am ok telling my dad, just not mom. She doesnt want me to have anymore and stressed bc. She will get over it and love him though. I know she will. Are there anyone others you have yet to tell you are worried about?

@Kelliria. I can think of one person that will be upset and that is one of my ex-boyfriends from high school who I can say is still in love with me but he did the worst thing imaginable. Long story short. He slept with his best friend and got her pregnant, then didn't tell me till 18 months later because he was busy. I found out through Facebook of all places. He claims that she didn't know she was pregnant and that the condom broke. And in my own honest opinion, if you tell someone you love them, you don’t go sleeping with someone else. He’s in his own pickle as the mother is very protective and hardly lets him see the baby, and now is starting to regret it. Like they say, not my circus, not my monkey. At one point, I was even considering having a baby with him down the road, but now I don’t even think I want to anymore and even considered him a father figure for my daughter when my husband passes. Please know that I didn’t get pregnant to spite him. Hubby and I wanted another kid long before I found out and he finally told me on Christmas Day. Anyways, like you said, they will get over it.

Dragonfly - I'm so happy you got a great reaction! What a weight lifted, huh?
We just told hubby's parents and his mom was really happy - said, "I'm so proud of you Lauren!" Like it was something I could control before lol. I said, "Well, I'm 42...you should be. This wasn't easy." My parents were really happy too because they know we've been trying for so long. Now I have to tell my sisters and I'm waiting for that second beta number before I do.
We're really close (I have 4 sisters, 1 brother) and the one younger than me lives in AZ and is coming here in three weeks with her fiancé to get married in front of all our family. She's going to take it badly. First off, she had to have a hysterectomy at 30 after her one son was born because of endo and cancer. This new marriage makes that emotionally difficult because she'll never be able to have a new kid with her new husband - she just got a puppy instead, so I know she's feeling the baby fever. Second, she's kind of bridezilla right now and she's going to feel I'm stealing her thunder, and Third, she has all these girls' nights and bachelorette nights and the wedding reception and I won't be able to drink with her at any of them. We only get along when drunk, really, so this is problematic. I'll soften the blow with offering to be the permanent DDriver. I have to tell them all this weekend so it is over and done with before the festivities begin to minimize the thunder stealing.

Yayyyyyy ladies - lots of good news in here!! Dragonfly - so happy your parents are excited for you - I had a feeling they would be - babies are blessings!!
Calvingirl - awesome numbers!!!! Good luck w/your second draw, I'm sure those will be great numbers too!!!
Just had my first blooddraw yesterday - my HCG was 508 and my progesterone was 14.1 (Imagine if I wasn't using progesterone cream 2x a day!!)... I feel like the progesterone number is kinda low -esp cuz I've been using the cream 2x a day for about 14ish days now! I also feel my hcg is high for me... my last two pregnancies my first hcg's were around this same time frame and they were 136 and 80... I know each pregnancy can be different but that's a big diff! Maybe it's twins!!!
