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!

what an adorable little bean, @beaut1ful8 my daughters heartbeat started off quite high in the early weeks but has been steadily around 140 throughout this pregnancy. i dont know if that helps you much!
@dragonfly23 how are you and little Isaiah doing settling into home? and how are you feeling?
@RooRoo welcome and congrats on the BFP! You are more than welcome.
I had an appointment 2 days ago and this kid is already 3/5ths engaged. I had a strong feeling that would be the case and i can already feel shes settled down in there. It sure feels like lightening. i can eat better without feeling like im going to pass out after a glass of water. her kicks arent so much in my ribs anymore and i have a lot of pelvic pressure and lightening crotch and anus-fun stuff. I was scheduled for 37+3 but due to her being engaged, increased cramping and the fact that i have the cerclage in and i cant go into natural labor, doc says we may have to go in a week earlier at 36+3. I think its overkill and hope we can still make it to 37+3 and i believe we will.
nonetheless, it seems i should probably start getting serious about packing some bags around here...

Neomasie, omg! That is so soon! If the dr feels like it is necessary, go for it. I understand your worry though. 37 wks sounds much better. I can't wait to see your baby. Are you nervous? I cant believe we are all so close! After work yesterday, i carpet cleaned my room which is huge. It is a full, finished basement and took till 8pm. Hoping all the work will help engage her! Seriously starting to nest.

@kelliria it is very very soon. I have brief moments of anxiety, but mostly everything feels so surreal. it feels like a dream, or like its happening to someone else's life, if that makes sense? i dont think it'll really hit me until maybe the night before or the morning we head to the hospital. I still feel like there's still a bit more to do to prepare, but i'm also so tired, sore and achy, i'm just kind of like 'meh-as long as she's got some clothes, diapers and a place to sleep, she'll be just fine'
Once again, i wish i had a fraction of your energy @kelliria! i wish you could bottle it and sell it!

Wow, lots going on!
@dragonfly - so glad BF'ing is going well!
@rooroo917 - welcome and congratulations! I love the name Serenity too. Reminds me of the ship in Firefly.
@Lakarmw - 37 wks...so close! I can barely walk at 31 wks so I'm so envious.
@neomasie - sounds like packing a bag is in order. I hope you keep baby in till 37 wks just to avoid any NICU issues, but baby will come when baby comes. Also so close....I can't wait to see pictures and announcements from you guys!
@Kelliria - So proud of you for realizing you are in a bad situation. It's virtually impossible to get out of one when pregnant. Your plan sounds smart. Baby will be big enough and you can be in a less stressful environment. Until then, just hang on, girl! I left my first sperm donor when my son was 6 mos and it was the best decision I've ever made. Scary, but so right. He ended up getting off his butt and being a good dad once I wasn't there to cover for him - he appreciated the time with his kid and learned to be a parent. Son is 21 now and has a great relationship with his dad.
AFM, like previously said, I'm 31 wks today. Baby is transverse still so I'm like a big wide basketball. She's still low, and periodically, her head will slip down into place (I can tell because that's when I feel tons of pressure), otherwise, she's tossing and turning and kicking me in the side - makes me nauseous (and I love every second of it.) She's SOOO much stronger than my son who ended up stillborn, which makes me think there was something always wrong from the beginning. He didn't thrive. We don't have a cause for his stillbirth, so I have no clue. I'm full time at MFM specialist now and next week start the non-stress tests and growth scans. I want to wait till the day after Christmas to be induced (39+1wks), but with my gestational diabetes, history, age and high risk category, I think they are going to want to induce at 37 wks. I'm hoping we can compromise to 38 wks because my stepdaughter's birthday is at 37 wks and she's autistic - doesn't share well, much less a birthday. So shooting for Dec 18th because that'd be a cool birthday - 12/18/18 :) I'll find out more next week when they can get me on the schedule.

@dragonfly - I'm so sorry you're feeling all of this. That's really frustrating. You definitely sound like you have some baby blues. 1) Breastfeeding is hard. The first six weeks, it's a full time job to learn and to have Isaiah learn how to do it well. It's not the end of the world though. Try to pump so he has some breastmilk for a few more weeks, even from a bottle, and supplement. The breastmilk is mostly for the antibodies you make in the first 6 wks - it'll help him not get sick. BUT I totally understand how hard that is if you aren't getting help and support - go to your parents. Your primary concern right now is your baby. Your daughter will understand. I don't know how I would've coped without my parents with my first pregnancy. I had a "non-involved dad" too, and it was so overwhelming between caring for this little one full time and the sleep deprivation. Keep up with your prenatals and know that this beginning part will pass....hugs and never worry about venting here. Your DH will never see it and sometimes you just have to get it out!
