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!

Thanks @Lakarmw I'm feeling ok, i guess. Just a bit run down due to work trips and long working hours. I ended bedrest about a week and a half ago and am back to business as usual. but I am trying to take it easy when i can.I'm battling crazy constipation and just started taking magnesium citrate to try and combat it. Its so bad i've developed either a prolapse or a hemorrhoid or quite possibly, both!
I feel a lot further along then I am!
How exciting that your little one is already jumping and bopping about. I swear that is the best part of pregnancy! I'm glad your spasms have dissipated. Maybe they were just 'growing pains'.

Hi, all! Just figured I'd check in and read up on everyone.
Neomasie, sorry your so constipated. Luckily, I haven't had any this go around. With my 1st pregnancy, I didn't go for over 2 weeks. I prolapsed and got hemorrhoids. It was horrible. I hear magnisium works. I never knew that then. I was showing a lot more with dd because i was constipated the whole time. At 14w, i am still under my starting weight. I'm chalking it up to being regular. It almost worries me cause don't you become constipated so your body can get all the nutrients out of food for baby? Hope she is getting enough. (The things that worry us being pregnant! Lol)
Calvingirl, i used my doppler a lot with dd. Twice a day. I have used it about 10xs with this one. Heard hb at 8w3d. I am not as uptight this pregnancy. With dd, she followed a mmc so i worried so much with her.
Dragonfly, i tried a lot with dd. Did the gender test where you pee in cup and if it stays light, means girl. If it turns dark, means boy. It stayed dark and i figured boy. I just knew she was a boy by feelings but turned out a girl, which is what i wanted. This time, i knew deep down girl but wanted boy. It is so weird how they are so different in pregnancy! I also did the ring test and got NIPT with both. So, I think if you want to do it, go for it! I had a friend do NIPT and they said 99% boy and she had a girl. They bought all boy stuff and when she went a 32wk ultrasound they said definately not a boy, a girl. They had washed all the clothes and took tags off of everything so couldnt take most stuff back. But that is a rare occurance.

@Kelliria. My aunt had a amnioscentesis done. Test came back and said it was a girl. But she really was having a boy. I know deep down I'm having a boy so I really hope that is the case. I plan on posting the gender on Fathers Day. I hate to post another saying letting them know it's a girl. Guess I will have to see how the rest of the pregnancy goes. I should just be thankful that my baby is healthy and moving around and be happy with what I am blessed with. Hope you are doing well.

@Kelliria I just went out and got Magnesium Citrate because ive been hearing its good for constipation. I'm going to start making green juice smoothies tomorrow because I heard that may help too. I didnt have this with my first till about 19 weeks, but was so regular up until then. I've been backed up since i got my BFP. fingers crossed one or both of them work! Thanks for the suggestion.

Sorry to hear about your constipation Neomasie hope you find something that works to ease it :( Glad you're feeling more back to normal now, and definitely take it easy, best to do that then end up on bed rest again.
I have a feeling I'm having a girl, I was looking at my others children's ultrasound pics and looking at nub theory and I think girl lol, I don t know why I'm looking when we aren't finding out hehe xxx

@Lakarmw I'm also strongly leaning towards not finding out however i've done the chinese predictor test twice and i'm planning on doing the baking soda test and i'm symptom comparing with my first, like crazy, lolol. I decided I will decide at each US/ appointment whether I want to know gender.

I got my NIPT results back today and they were invalid because of low fetal fraction. I had to go back in this morning and get two more vials of blood taken. Could be nothing, but it increases my risk for chromosome problem. They said it could be because they took the test too early, but they took it at 10 wks and it's supposed to work from 9 wks on - plus, look at me. I'm twice the size I was with Oscar and I've felt movement for the past week, which is crazy early. If anything, next week at my 12 wk scan, I want them to look carefully for a hidden twin. The Dr. said they'll try to rush the results, but I'm looking at another 7 days of limbo. I'm a bit crushed.
PS - I took this picture last night before I got the disappointing news.

@Calvingirl. Love the belly picture. Sorry to hear about your test being invalid. I hope the next tests will be accurate enough and you get the gender. Have you tried Googling on belly shape and doing the nub test? After my encounter with the lady yesterday, I'm still Googling on gender even though I'm convinced it's a boy lol.
How is everyone else feeling today? Last night, I had pain on the left side near my belly button whenever I breathed and it had me in tears. I sure hope it was not Braxton Hicks as I remember the pain being greater than that. Today, pain is gone and still feeling him move around. Hard to believe that in a few months I will be holding him in my arms and all this will be so worth it.
