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!

hello ladies! Yes, I've been following you all, but haven't posted in a while. How I'm doing? Depends on the day. I'm 29 wks today and just starting to get into the uncomfortable stage you other ladies have firmly entered. I'm sleeping good, so that's nice. First time the whole pregnancy - I've only gotten up once to pee and one night I actually slept through the night! It was amazing!
@Lakarmw - great bump photos! You look so healthy and big! I started out so big (to me anyway) and the last 4 wks with this GD thing, I've lost weight and bump looking the same or smaller depending on the day. I went up on the scale this morning, so I was happy. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I'll see a bigger growth spurt. I know about inconvenient timing - babies pick the worst times. Last pregnancy, I was literally in early labor with contractions every 3-5 min while sitting at my oldest son's HS graduation, just praying I'd last till the end of the ceremony. I left right after he walked across the stage. We had to cancel his party - it sucked. As for moving baby down, it sounds like you are doing all the right things. Midwife used to say (previous pregnancies) to pull the yoga ball on bed and lean forward on it. The gravity of the hanging belly is supposed to give the baby room to maneuver into place better. My Oscar was breech till 36 wks and I did that every day to get him to turn, which he did eventually. It felt good anyway. I faced the tv and just hung out like that while watching a show.
@neomasie - I can't wait till my little princess gets a little bigger. She's camping out on top of my bladder most of the time, and the round ligament pain when I walk is like glass shards in my joints. I keep flipping side to side at night too, and have done it too fast and pulled a muscle or gotten a cramp in my side in the middle of the night - which is a total rude awakening! I have to remember to move slowly, but I'm so impatient!
@Kelliria - Not great with the GD diet. I'm following it fine. It's just not helping. I worked myself up into such an anxiety frenzy that I couldn't eat. Seemed like everything I ate shot my sugar up, so I was afraid to eat. I'd get nauseous just thinking about attempting it, which made me weak and weepy and sugar down too low. It was a tough weekend last weekend. I spent the entire time in bed, most of it crying and afraid to eat. Idk why. I had a pregnancy meltdown, and of course during a weekend. DH resorted to calling my mother to come talk me out of it and now I'm trying what she suggested - stopping the monitoring for 3 days. Just eat healthy and avoid the sugars, but stop tracking for a couple of days to get a realistic mental handle on myself. This helped a lot. I was able to eat again and all my energy came back. I've been able to work these past two days. I'll start monitoring again tomorrow morning, but I needed the mental break from it - especially when there was nothing I could do about it. I'm also changing from my regular OB and going full time to the MFM specialist office as high risk. They can deal with me better and can put me on insulin if needed (my OB already threatened to drop me if I need insulin or meds). I was so afraid of being dropped, that the stress alone was raising my numbers - which frankly aren't that high. They are ranging about 20 pts over what I should be, but nothing over 160. Most of the after-meal numbers are 125, and they want them to be <120 - so just off by a few points. I'm working on de-stressing right now and letting go of what I can't control. All I can do is eat well. I can't control if my body still hates it. (Shoot, even the glucerna shakes were shooting up my sugar. Only a no-carb diet would keep my numbers stable, and then I got all weak and lost 6lbs!!)
So ...bumps - here's mine. It's smaller than it was, but baby girl is still moving and grooving fine.

Lovely to hear your update Calvingirl, and thank you, bump seems to be growing nicely, as is baby, though weirdly I've only put 2lb on since 28 weeks...I'm sure you'll soon see a huge bump growth spurt, but I'd also love a small bump, mines getting heavy and tiring now lol. OMG I cannot believe you were in labour during hour son's graduation, what a great story, you did amazing to make it to the end. So sorry to hear about you GD problems, I agree with your mum about just being healthy the best you can, as upsetting yourself is not good for your or baby. And thanks for the yoga ball tip, baby is head down but not in my pelvis yet.
Dragonfly23 great bump pics...hope your little man hurries along soon - my son was 7 days late, boys can be lazy lol xxx

Advice please ladies....
So I have said from the start I didn't want a babyshower with it being my third...now a few weeks ago it was let slip that my sister has organised me one...I only know the time and date....She has organised it right before her and our friends go on a Halloween night out...that nobody invited me to (Not that I'd go at almost 37 weeks pregnant, but still nice to be asked) so I feel like basically it's pre drinks to their night out...i asked her she had invited our nan, who she isn't friendly with at the moment...and she said NO I'm organising it, and I dont like her so she isn't invited, I've since found out both my aunties aren't coming, for various reasons, but most likely since my nan hasn't been invited, which I understand, but I'm quite upset about my nan not being invited...I'm really close with her as my sister knows, and it doesn't feel right.....it seems like it's turned into the ""sisters name"" show" again as always with her....I don't know what to do....shes 28 so hardly a child herself....is it easier to say nothing? Say something? What do you ladies think? Tia xxx
