Hi,
It's all so exciting!!
Congrats again on BFP!

I am 29 (30 on 25th march!!) and DH is 36. We have a 16 month old daughter.
We had a BFP last month but it was a chemical pregnancy. So I'm feeling very anxious about this one!

During my first pregnancy I tried to remind myself every day of what a miracle it all was, as it's easy to forget that. I hope you have a happy and healthy 9 months.
Xx

I'm here with you!

I'm 32 and my fiance is 37. My first and his second.

BFP today.....was on Depo for almost 11 years...over the moon today!!

So....what's next? How early do we go for the first ultra sound? Is there a blood test next?

Can I still drink coffee...what prenatal vitamins do I take now?

I'm still taking a multivitamin and 1000mg of folic acid daily.

Hahah, Im glad Im not the only one freaking out. I just got off the phone why my OBGYN and they want a 6 week ultrasound for confirmation....so I go March 13! I think Bernie told me I should be able to hear a heart beat by then? Thats nuts.....and Im still terrified something is going to go wrong. I need to change my vitamins to something with less iron, Ill probably talk about that when I go....but the nurse told me, eat when I want to (i told her Im not hungry AT ALL) and force myself if its been over 6 hours to have at least a little something and drink lots of water. AAHAAHAHAHAH its crazy!

Yeah...someone else mentioned the iron thing to me awhile ago...I think im going to skip the multivitamin until I hear back from my gyno and just continue with the folic acid for now.

I hope I can get in that early too for an ultra sound.

I'm still in shock! I can't wait to tell my family the news tomorrow!

In the UK you have a booking in appointment with your midwife around 8 weeks where she takes all your details and does a blood test/blood pressure etc.
Then you get your first scan at 12 weeks.

We will be paying for a private early dating scan at about 7 weeks as i cannot wait any longer than that! With our daughter we saw her heartbeat on the screen at the 7 week scan (not sure if we heard it) So hopefully at 6 weeks you'll be able to see it as well Rockinmomtobe.

I have pre-natal vitamins i've been taking for a while so i'll carry on with them until they run out and then switch to pregnancy ones. But if you have a really healthy diet then they aren't essential. I just like to take them to make sure baby gets everything they need!!
Yes you can still have coffee - just don't go overboard :-) And when they baby starts moving i would imagine a cup of coffee would send it in to overdrive!! lol!

I can hardly believe it. I am so terrified i'm going to have a chemical again like last month. But the lines on the test have gotten darker each day so hopefully this one sticks!!

I think it's pretty rare to have one after another? I know it's common to have one and then a successful pregnancy follows.

My fiances sister just had a baby boy.....she also had the same thing the first cycle...and then the next one right after stuck...HH baby boy!

Im literally terried everytime I go to the bathroom that Im going to find blood....or when I go for my US in a few weeks there wont be anything there....but I guess I cant really do anything to prevent that from happening....Its just so nerve wracking!

Have you guys told your OHs yet? Im not sure how to do it lol

I was the same when pregnant with my daughter and I'm like it again this time. Always freaked I'm gonna see blood!
I think anxiety goes hand in hand with pregnancy and then parenthood as well! Lol!
I promise it's all worth it though. I wouldn't be doing it a second time otherwise!! :-)

I think we need to try and enjoy the pregnancy and what will be will be. Very hard though!! But at least we have each other to talk about this stuff!

No I haven't told DH yet. I used to tell him straight away but after last month I was nervous about getting positives and negatives again.
If you look on google I'm sure they'll be ideas on how to tell him.
