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!

Wow, I've missed so much. Dragonfly23 - Good luck on your upcoming induction. I hope you start on your own before that. My mom and a couple of my sisters were all late birthers. Of course, they let you go later back then - my 4th sister was a full 4 wks late! They thought they had the dates wrong, but she came out 9lbs and all peely, so definitely late. I can't wait for pictures - relax, walk a lot and get as much rest as you can. You know the drill. We're all pulling for a smooth delivery and healthy son for you!

Thanks Kelliria, nothing seems to be helping, I even took some pain killers for it today....which I never do. I hope he or she drops soon. I'm going to spend today on my feet as much as possible. I can't believe how far along we are...hoping to hear some baby news from Dragonfly23 really soon.
Here's my today pics compared to 30 weeks if anyone's interested lol, I love seeing the bumps

@dragonfly23 i'm glad they found the truck, and i also agree with your H. who would want it back after such an experience?
praying your son makes his debut this week so avoid induction. he seems to really love it in there with you, ha!
@Lakarmw i too am in so much pain. i just feel like im quickly running out of space! she loves to lodge herself in my right ribcage and chill out there. on top of that my growing belly is stretching my TAC scar from the inside and i have excruciating pain when i turn over in bed, which of course is like every 10-20 minutes. I really dont want her to come early, but let me tell you, if it's God's will...
like @kelliria said, when she kicks my ribs or some other uncomfortable place, i rub her foot or her arm and she moves away. but that only works when she's kicking/punching. it does'nt work well when she's balled up in those areas. good luck!

Ooh Neomasie sorry to hear about the scar pain, that must feel sore I'm the same with the turning over in bed constantly...I think we are just getting to the large heavy and unconfortable stage now arent we...i was doing so well up until a week ago avoiding much pain at all, so I've been lucky...obviously just time to get uncomfortable ready for the big day...I don't mind my little one coming a little early or a little late...but on time would be awkward for me as it's my son's 5th birthday party 18th November, his birthday is 21st November and my due dates 20th Not that we get to decide xxx

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.
