Group for the BFPs

View Full Post

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!

Here's my updated belly pic 28+3. I've had a look at the growth chart in the back that my midwife plotted for me, baby should currently be around 2lb9 and should I continue to grow at the same rate if I have baby at 40weeks, they guess he/she will be around 8lb5 perhaps not as average as I thought since my son was 8lb5.5 at 41weeks xx

@Lakarmw. Such a cute baby bump . When I had my ultrasound the tech told me that my boy is around 4 lbs and some oz. which I think is light at this stage but read that babies gain weight faster at the last stages of pregnancy.

Things have been going well for me. Last night I bought a double stroller and I just have to put it together and take it for a test drive to see if my daughter will actually sit in the front seat as it is not very wide. Little man gets the hiccups constantly and it just feels weird at times. Other than that, walking at times can be unbearable and painful since he's dropped pretty low.

@lakarmw any gut feel on what little ones gender is?

I think I found a solution to my constipation guys! A combination of intensive probiotics, magnesium citrate, green juice and lemon water! Let's just hope it doesn't open up the floodgates! I'm giving kinesiology tape a go for the hip and lower back pain. I'll give a review after a few days use.
27 weeks today and I'm just ready for csection day. I'm irrationally excited to se and hold my baby it's all I think about! D day is nov 20th at 38+3.

@Lakarmw. I'm almost thinking that it could be a girl but it's hard to tell.

@Neomasie. I eat a lot of shreddies as it is high in fibre. However, I always seem to get acid reflux so I am not sure what that means. Let us know how the tape goes for the hip.

Last night I put the double stroller together and it was pretty easy. Hoping to take it for a test drive today as I have 90 days to return it. I officially have 8 more working days left and then I go on two weeks vacation and then start mat leave on Oct 1 and go back a year after that. I don't have the countdown clock going but I can't wait to meet my little man.

How’s everyone’s weight gain?! I’m 26 weeks today and have literally gained only 6-7lbs (3-3.5kgs). I haven’t increased or decreased anything in my diet (diet could be a bit healthier). I eat pretty good majority of the time but I enjoy a little sweet cheat in the evenings. I’m getting bigger (all belly) and baby is very active but with my first daughter I had gained nearly 30lbs (14 kgs) by this point. My midwife didn’t say anything at my last appointment so I have to assume this is ok. I don’t want to gain too much but all the apps have been saying I should gain 1/2 - 1lbs a week and it’s just not happening.

Dragonfly23 I think 4lb something sounds about right ???? my friend had her little boy 3 months ago, at 33 weeks and he was 4lb something, he's doing fab now, over 12lb. Hope your stroller trying went well, hehe. Sorry to hear it's getting painful to walk. I bought one of these, to help me walk further, as I kept getting a weird pain at the bottom of my tummy when I walked a long way, and this is helping me to walk over a mile a day still at almost 29 weeks so I'm pleased with that. You must be getting very excited now, not long to go at all
Neomasie I don't have a clue what we are having.....my bump looks like my son's, but I felt awful all pregnancy with him and this one I feel great, so I have no clue at all, it will be such a surprise wheb the time comes. I can't wait. Hope your constipation solution went well. Your C-Section date is my due date
Tryingafterloss I have put on loads of weight around 2 stone ???? all seem to be on my belly though. I'm measuring perfect as they think I should for my dates so all good. If you have any concerns at all, ask....although everyone's different and as long as baby is growing then they won't worry about your weight too much I don't think.
Hope everyone's had a great weekend, we are just preparing for my son starting school on Wednesday I'm going to be an emotional mess, it's bad enough normally without the pregnancy hormones too xxx

Here's the band a bought. Its called a maternity support belt and has a belt that goes round the bottom of my bump and a strap that goes over the top. It's brilliant and was only £5.99 xxx

@Lakarmw. Oh thank you about the weight of the baby. The stroller testing went well and she had no problems sitting in the seat. I'm kind of looking for a car seat for it but I have no idea which would work. It says it accepts Graco snug ride. I still have my other car seat that we brought my daughter in but it is a different brand. I will have to try the band out and see if it works. Here is the picture of the new stroller. It has 12 riding options.

@Lakarmw how awesome that we're due date buddies! Even though mine is artificial I hope you're son has a good first day of school. How special. Hope you hold it together on the big day, mama. But it's understandable if you don't!
@tryingafterloss I have had no probelems in the weight gain dept. At almost 28 weeks I think I've gained almost 10 pounds already. Obviously mostly in the belly but a lot in the boobs, too. If your doc/midwife isn't concerned, I wouldn't be either. You still have plenty of time to gain more healthy weight.

Tomorrow I'm getting steroid shots and will be again in 24 hours to help develop baby's lungs should she come early. So far everything is progressing well and there's no threat of her coming early but it's a precaution my doc wants to take since I have a history of silent dilation and preterm loss. I heard the side effects are no fun so I'm not looking fwd to it

Dragonfly23 I'm glad the stroller testing went well :)
Neomasie I'll be so lucky if I don't go past my due date hehe my daughter was 2 days late and my son 7 days late.....So I'm not holding my breath for an early or ontime arrival, but my son's birthday is also 21st of November so earlier or later would actually be preferable to on time so I dont miss his birthday. Good luck with the steroids, I hoorbthe side effects aren't too bad for you
My son went off to school no problem at all, there was a few tears from me, but I wasn't too bad, I can't wait to pick him up to see how he went on xx
