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!

Flamingogirl, dont stalk, we wanna hear your progression as well! How are you feeling? It's funny cause 2 more girls are now having their inductions before my date and i was always a bit ahead. I want to be induced a wk and a half early on nov 29th, but my doc wants her to come naturally. That is my moms bday and I'm naming her after my mom. I can wait an extra week and a half though... When in feb is your date? A lot of my family and friends are feb babies.

@Kelliria - My due date is February 12th! My youngest niece turns 2 on Valentines day so their birthdays will be right next to each other. I've been feeling baby move for almost three weeks now and I am loving it! I have an anterior placenta so it took a little bit longer to feel the baby moving. Our anatomy scan was at 18 weeks 1 day and everything looks great and right on track for growth. We are waiting to find out the gender of the baby until birth day! We have boys name and girls names all ready so we don't have to worry about that. We've actually had our top names chosen since before we got married! Lol! My oldest niece is about to be 3 and keeps asking lots of questions about baby cousin. She is super excited about helping and holding and having a little cousin.

Hi ladies. Thank you very much for your lovely comments. It really means a lot to me. Will keep everyone posted.
@Tryingafterloss. So truely sorry to hear that you are now high risk. I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes smooth with no problems. Can you explain what gestational diabeties is? Does that mean your baby will be type 1 diabetic? If so, that is sad. My ex husband is a type 1 and I watched him poke himself every time he eats; not very fun at all.
@FlamingoGirl13. Your neice will be giddy when your baby comes and can't wait to see him or her. That's awesome that you are waiting till the end to know the sex and that you have names picked out.

@dragonfly23 she is a risk of being type 1 if I don’t keep my blood sugar levels under control, but at the moment I’m the only one poking themselves! I’m also at a higher risk of being type 2 diabetic after she’s born. With Gestational Diabetes the placenta is blocking my insulin production which means I have more sugar in blood than I should. Baby girl is being exposed to too much sugar which is causing her little pancreas to work harder as well. She is at risk of being bigger than normal and the diabetes can start to break down the placenta and umbilical cord which is why I have to be so closely monitored and diligent with my diet, exercise and water consumption. The worst part is that I can only do so much and the rest is hormones and completely out of my control! ????

Flamingogirl13 how exciting, we are also waiting to find out if it's a girl or a boy in there....I have no clue.....
Aww Kelliria I hope your little one comes on the day you want her too, youll be in the 'any day now stage' so very possible. I also have to wait for nature to take it's course, unless something happens between now and then so I need inducing. I have my next midwife appointment tomorrow...it's been a very looong 6 weeks since my last one, so I'm hoping everything goes, I think they'll start to be 2 weekly after tomorrow.
Good luck again Dragonfly23 we are all so excited to hear news xxx

Wow, looking back on my first post on this group, I was 15 weeks and 1 day. Time sure does fly by with all the ups Now, 1 day over and I am so waiting for the day to come when I finally get to meet him. I'm still stumped on the spelling of his name. Keep it original or different but my only thing is, would it still have the same meaning if it is not the original spelling? Still nothing to report, took my daughter to the store today and been having some tightness in the belly, back is sore and I believe more of the plug is coming out. So, it could be any day now; I hope. On to the more depressing side of things. I never thought a man could have daddy pregnancy brain, but believe me when I say that; it does exist. My hubby forgot that his truck keys were in the truck and two guys stole it during the night. It totally breaks my heart that some people just don't have any morals when it comes to other peoples' belongings. I guess on the bright side, it wasn't the van as the carseat for our daughter is in it and she would be stuck at home. Even though it wasn't my vehicle, it still traumatized me . Will keep everyone updated on the baby as they come. Hopefully he comes before Monday...

Lakarmw, prayers, hun! I know things can be worrisome but hang in there. With my 1st, i measured in the 94%. I was huge but so was my daughter. She is still over the 99% at 2yrs 7m. She is 40 inches tall and weighs 39lbs. Everyone thinks she is 5. Do you have gd? I know a few of the women do. My boyfriend was 13lbs at birth and everything went great. Let us know how the scan goes. I'll be thinking of you today.

I have been super tired lately. Work has cut my hours down to about 30 a week but they say it is because I'm slowing down and when you get tired accidents happen. She also said it is because of performance not bc i am pregnant. I told her if i wasnt pregnant i wouldn't be a bit slower. They cant cut hrs bc of pregnancy due to laws. I am ok with it though cause i am so fatigued. I dropped a lot yesterday too. My belly is pointing down rather than out. I was about 34wks with dd when i dropped and almost 32 now. So about on track.
