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!

@kelliria - Good luck! I'm sure it's going to go great! 3 more weeks for me to wait.
How is everyone doing? I'm doing ok this week. 16 wks now. We just posted our gender reveal video online last night and it's really cute. I had inadvertently recorded the phone call I got from the drs office that told us the gender - I record all my cell phone calls with this app. Anyway, we had done a gender reveal with just immediate family on 4th of July and took a bunch of pictures. We used confetti cannons with biodegradable confetti in the backyard, and then used the burst function on the camera to capture every second. My DH put those photos together in a slideshow and set them to music and the phone call where we learn we're having a girl - it turned out quite nice. I still tear up when I hear it. I just can't wait for the next 5 months to pass.

Hello ladies!!! I need your advice desperately
I have got my BFP on 16dpo n LMP was on June 13th.. From 6 dpo I have sore bbs... N was having light cramps from 15dpo... Yesterday I have tested again with a four hold n the test line was darker than the control line(please check my profile) ... N today morning there was a brown tinge to my CM, I have scheduled an appointment with the doctor on Friday... Is this brown spotting normal or start of MC?

Hope it all went well for you yesterday kelliria :)
Glad you got the reassurance you needed Neomasie.
Calvingirl that sounds like a very cute gender reveal :)
Nissa1019 I would say if it's only a tinge in your cm it should be nothing to worry about, I was told after some early spotting to only really worry if I was in a lot of pain or bleeding a lot, but it's always worth being checked by the professionals for reassurance xxx

Congrats on your BFP! Nissa, no one can tell but time. I do know that with my dd about 8 days passed missed period i started bleeding a bit. Not much and mostly when i wiped. She is healthy and 2 yrs old. I went to er and they said possible mc. I was devistated. If you bleed at all, the er says that so dont freak. I hear a lot of women spot or even bleed in the 1st month and they have went on to carry to term. When you do go to the dr friday, ask them to check your progesterone just in case. I wouldn't worry too much until the dr says something otherwise. Ik, easier said than done. Good luck.

@Kelliria - She looks so cute! I'm so excited for you. I had a low lying placenta at 20 weeks with Oscar and it moved up and out of the way by 30 weeks, so you have hope. I didn't even grow that much - I should've been bigger. I'm gonna be bigger with this one.
@Nissa - Congrats on your BFP! I had brown tinge spotting for 4 days at about 5-6wks. It never increased or turned red, so Doc said probably implantation blood eventually coming out. They did check my progesterone level when I mentioned it, so I would mention it - mine was fine, but you don't want progesterone to drop. It's an easy blood test most insurance covers.
I have a drs apt tomorrow - just a check up, but I want to hear baby again. I haven't felt movement in over a day, but I went through a growth spurt and am bigger. She might have more swimming room and I just can't feel it. It's too early to kick count, but I'll feel less anxious if she'd let me know she was in there ok today.

@Kelliria. She looks beautiful in the picture. I love the 3D pictures. I hope things correct themselves so you can deliver naturally.
@Nissa. Congrats on your BFP. I too had a brown tinge early in my pregnancy when I wiped and it threw me into a panick attack. It only happened the one time so I am assuming that it was implantation finally working it's way out; never had IB with my first pregnancy so that is why I panicked.
@calvingirl. I am sure your doctor's appointment will go well and you will get to hear the babys heartbeat.
As for me, a lot has been going on. In ten minutes I leave for my prenatal appointment and hope my glucose test comes back normal. My daddy had surgery last Monday and everything went well and was released Wednesday at lunch. Not even 8 hours later my mom suffered a stroke and was admitted to the hospital. Thank goodness they caught it early and were able to correct things and she will just need rehab to get her hand strength back. A couple weeks back I got a horrible cold and someone on here mentioned they had a cold and what happens to their bladder. Yes, I know the feeling all to well and still to this day and it's embarrassing. Other than that, just been renovating the house and spending time with my daughter. Baby boy keeps me up at night with all the kicking so I hope he doesn't get into the habit when he is born. Sitting for long periods is hard on my back and in the upper rib cage. Everyone has been counting the days down and I'm sitting here sort of looking forward to it. Will keep you ladies posted soon.

Well, my glucose test was normal so that's really good news. Here's the not so good news. My BP was low and the baby's was high (180) so the doctor is getting me to stay at the clinic for a little bit to listen to the heartbeat again. If it's still high then I would have to go to the hospital which saddens me to say the least. Will keep everyone posted.
Update: everything is fine. Such a relief.
