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!

Lakarmw – Thank you :) Your bump is so cute!! I’m gonna guess boy for you, but that’s a complete guess… to me you look like you’re all belly, but you do have black sweater on so hard to truly tell.
calvingirl – thank you for the RLS trigger info, that’s good to know and I’ll try to follow that and see if it helps me. I just wish I could sleep at least 4-5 hours in a row and feel rested when I wake up in the am. Every night I wake up 3-5 times and in the am I feel like I hardly slept at all! Your u/s pic is SO CUTE!!!! Fingers crossed you have your NIPT results any second now!!! I didn’t get mine for about 10 or 11 days… try calling the dr office today! You never know! And my dr hadn’t received them in the mail, but they were able to look it up and see them on the online system! Worst that can happen is they say they don’t have them….
Mrsjr96 – So glad to hear your numbers are where they should be! Good luck with your scan today … can’t wait to hear how it goes!! Sorry about the nausea, that’s no fun at all… when I feel nausea, having a mint seems to really help it go away or if it’s the morning, I’m usually just hungry and once I eat that feeling goes away… I know everyone is diff, but maybe that would help you too? Thank you for the congrats! I’m 13w4d today and I feel really good. I actually don’t feel pregnant and sometimes forget besides my stomach being bigger lol. And once I take my bra off it’s like ouch for a few minutes but then it’s fine LOL. I feel like I’m starting to get more energy than I had the first trimester too… hopefully I’ll stay like this til the end!
Kelliria – where are you from? I’m curious why your dr wouldn’t give you a 12 week scan? I thought those were pretty standard to have in pregnancy? But also, I never made it this far in my previous pregnancies, so what do I technically know… I live in Massachusetts and here everyone I know has had one at 12 weeks, my next one is at 18 weeks for anomaly scan. When is your next u/s scheduled for? You must be dying to see you baby!!
Dragonfly – my prenatals made me SO SICK at first, my dr told me to take them before bed and ever since I started that I’m 100% fine – maybe try that?
I'm just kinda waiting around at this point - next up I have my monthly appt w/my dr at her office on July 20th (I'll be 17 weeks) and then I have the anomaly scan on August 1st... I so wish there was another ultrasound scheduled in between now and then! If it wasn't for my at home doppler, I'd be going CRAZY because I can't feel the baby moving inside yet... when does that usually start? I have felt like flutters I'm pretty sure - or it was just in my head, but when I've felt it 2-3 times it's right where the baby has been when I've found his heartbeat....

@BB2018. Thank you. I will give that a try. I woke up late today as my daughter decided it was nice to play with my alarm clock so I took it during eating so I was fine. I wish I was having another ultrasound just to see how big he was getting and to see if I'm still breached as he is not sitting sideways.

Update on my NIPT results. I'm 13w,1day. Got the results yesterday - no result again. Low Fetal Fraction again. They want me to come in and take it for a THIRD time. I've had to cancel our gender reveal party on the 4th, and I haven't decided if I'm going to get the third one done. It's not going to cost me anything but 3 vials of my precious blood that is busy growing my baby, but my goodness, that hurts and I feel like a pin cushion for as much blood as they've taken from me. At this point, after a good 12 wk scan that lowered the chances of downs or other trisomies, I might just wait for my anatomy scan at 19 wks to find out gender like a normal person. It might be that I'm part of the 1% that this test just doesn't work on, and further tries would be pointless.
My DH said something that isn't very scientific, but made me feel better anyway. He said that they probably can't get enough baby DNA from my blood because I'm growing my clone, a little girl, and they just can't separate us - our DNA is too similar. I'm not sure that's how it works, but it made me feel better and feels good to me. So maybe this is a sign that I don't need to know for a few weeks and I should just not stress about it.

Hey ladies!! I hope you are all doing well! I’ve not been on here for awhile! I’m now 16+5 weeks. Things have been tracking along pretty well. Tonight though I’ve had a sore back and mild menstrual type pains. I’ve read it can be normal and it’s just stretching pains, as long as there is no bleeding it should be ok. I can handle anything but the menstrual pains kinda freak me out! Keep checking now to make sure there’s no bleeding! :(
@calvingirl. That is frustrating not to get your results more than once! Fingers crossed you’ll find out at your scan.

Bb2018, i am ftom ohio. I know i had 3 or 4 u/s by 19w last pregnancy. Just got my 7w to see how far along i was and the anomoly scan next appt. I should be about 19w. I was really hoping for a 12w one but it's passed now so next appt.
Calvingirl, so sorry to hear about your test. Should you be having a u/s to see gender soon? That would be so frustrating! I would opt out for the 3rd time. You will probably know by the time you get anything back from them again.

Ok ladies...ready for a twist ending??? They f*cked it up. Can you believe it? The doctor that called me on Tuesday was reading me the results from my FIRST test. My second test results HADN'T COME IN YET!!! They were just reported yesterday. I found this out when I called Natera (company that does the Panorama NIPT test) and asked when the report would be posted. I figured if my low fetal fraction had increased, it would be worth it to go in for a 3rd blood draw, but if not, I'd just wait. They told me the results weren't in yet - had NOT been reported to my doctor yet and they must've screwed up!!
So today, I called doctor's office, explained the situation and sure enough, my results were in. Baby is low risk for Downs and Trisomnys 13, 18 and triploidy - all good, and WE"RE HAVING A GIRL!!!!
I cried like a baby on the phone and my husband squealed like a girl (we had her on speaker phone so we'd both find out at the same time). I'm so happy. I'm freaking out!!!
