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!

Congrats on a great scan Lakarmw - and baby looks very cute and healthy. I think it's wonderful you are keeping it a surprise. I kept my two a surprise and that moment when they put the baby on your chest and you get to find out - you'll cry. Doesn't even matter what the gender is. It's one of the sweetest surprises in the world. I found out this time because we are just going to have so many scans, I didn't want to have any surprises - and my DH is pretty good at reading scans, so I was afraid we'd accidently find out anyway. But I actually went through a grieving process that I won't get that moment. I loved that moment - even when my son was born still, it was a small moment of joy to find out what he was, even if he wasn't going to stay in my arms.
Make sure you tell the doctors to NOT announce the gender to you - tell them to hand you the baby and let you and your SO/DH find out for yourselves and announce it. So much better that way. :)

AFM - I'm working on a two day off/on again migraine. I read that this time in the pregnancy progesterone spikes to a new level, and it takes a few weeks for the body to get used to it - but this is agony. I'm crying at everything and my head is either good for 20 minutes or in agony for 3-4 hrs. I couldn't go into work today it was so bad. I'm keeping hydrated, using ice packs and taking Tylenol, but it doesn't touch it. I'm 15 wks tomorrow and I've had annoying headaches other pregnancies, but not this bad before. My BP is just fine, so I think it's hormonal. Anyone else have bad headaches the beginning of 2nd trimester??

@Lakarmw. Beautiful scan. I think keeping it a secret is really nice as well.
@neomasie. So sorry you are battling a migrane. I've had them but it wasn't as bad as how you are describing it. I too can't believe on how fast things are going for me. Everyone seems to be counting down and there's me saying shh lol.
As for me, sorry I have been so quiet recently. I got a wicked cold last week and still recovering from it. Last night my little guy was moving a lot and it felt weird to see the skin moving around. I keep asking my hubby if I am fat and he says, No Honey, you are pregnant. Then he tells me, I can't wait to see what you will look like before delivery. I weighed myself the other day and I am 123 lbs. I have my next prenatal visit on July 18 and I'm pretty sure that will go well. Other than that, things are well. Doing some renos on the house and having a heat wave.

@dragonfly23 - hope you are feeling better! I hated colds when pregnant. Luckily I haven't gotten one yet, but once fall hits and the kids come home from school with new bugs and viruses...I'll probably get hit with one. We all get them in September as our bodies adjust.
Quiet around here, but I think we're all in the middle quiet part. I have an appt. next week but my anatomy scan is still like a month away. Hopefully baby will measure on target and we won't have to do the twice weekly appts till a bit later. Our insurance has a high deductible and we're pretty much paying out of pocket till we meet it, and then still 15% after.
Feeling better today. No headache. Hopefully they will stay away. I just want to sleep all the time. I can't believe how far some of you are...it's going by so fast! I hope it keeps going by fast - I can't wait till she's in my arms.

Hey ladies!! It has been quiet around here. I’ve been sick with a terrible cold for almost 2 weeks (almost gone though). Coughing while pregnant has been interesting! I’ve never had bladder control issues before and I’ve felt like a toddler the past week!! Lol. Baby is moving around like crazy so I’m barely using my Doppler anymore even hubby has felt baby move now! Was so cute to see his face when he felt her!
I hope everyone is doing well! Xx

Calvingirl, glad your headaches are at bay right now. Hopefully they will stay that way. They were brutal for me for about 2 weeks and have stopped now or got very light. Mostly i wake up in the middle of the night with one.
Tryingafteraloss, how far along are you now? It is so exciting when the movement starts. Im 19w tomorrow and havent felt her with my hand but have felt a few flutters or rolls since 15w. Not many. With my dd, i felt them much more by now. I am still using doppler but only about once a week. Ive been way more calm this go around.
Atm, pretty quiet as well. Been getting really tired again lately and my severe hunger isn't as bad. I'm getting big but i feel bigger than i look, i think. One lady at work didnt even know yesterday. The whole relaxin hormone (spelling?) Has got my private area sore in the muscles and inner joints. My belly band helps some while working. I stand all 8.5 hrs except 2-15 min breaks and 30 min lunch. So far so good though. I still forget I'm pregnant, just feel like Im fatter. Lol. My 19wk anatomy scan will be in 3 days! Tues can't come fast enough. I'm super excited and nervous. This has been such an easy pregnancy, I feel super blessed. Have a great day, ladies, and enjoy your weekend!

Hey all! I Hope everyone is doing good and progressing well. I've been swamped at work and traveling a ton for work so I've been offline for a bit. I'm 20 weeks today and I plan on stopping all work travel as of now due to the cervical issues. I want to keep off my feet as much as possible and be near my docs if anything happens. Otherwise, I'm feeling alright just really rundown and tired but I think that has more to do with my work pace for the past month more than anything. My appetite is almost non-existent and I have to force myself to eat. Also, nothing ever sounds good so I'm eating a very limited diet right now. I need to step it up. I go for my anomaly scan next Friday and I'm looking forward to seeing the babe! And with each appointment I'm becoming less and less team green and just want to find out. but the way @calvingirl described the moment she found out she had a son, really has me holding firmly to waiting till delivery day!

@kelliria I’m 18w6days today. I’ve been feeling her move since week 13. Hubby has felt her move twice now with his hand and my oldest daughter felt her move last night as well. I’m surprised at how strong she is moving already myself as I didn’t think they’d be able to feel anything for several more weeks.
