I'm Helena and am recently married. My husband is in the navy. I'm a psychology student and have 2 semesters (24 credits of gen eds and electives) left before I graduate. I'll be finishing up this semester which will leave me with 12 credits left. I'll be taking the fall semester off and then returning in the spring, probably with online classes. We'll be moving in April/May to wherever we're sent, so my current OB will only be with me until about 20 weeks. This is my first pregnancy, but I had previously tried for 3 years with my ex. Things didn't work out for us in pretty much every way, but I couldn't be happier now. This bfp was a bit of a surprise. A very happy surprise We had only been with each other for 10 days (stupid navy) over Christmas and BAM! I randomly decided to take a test on 1/16 (hours before we got married) and it was a very faint positive. I told him that night and together we watched it slowly darken over the next few days. I won't be seeing him for another 3 weeks, so time is going to drag on until then. We're both extremely excited and can't wait to welcome our baby in September

fun fact: both my brother and nephew were conceived on New Years and both born September 26th. Pretty sure this baby was conceived on New Years, so I'm guessing I'll have him/her on September 26th

Helena - love the story about how you found out just hours before you were married!!! Very exciting!!

I got married in April (2012), so we still feel a little bit like newly weds although it's been 9 months now! I am 37 and DH is 29 (almost 30!!). I wish I weren't the older one but we don't really notice the age difference. Both DH and I are Aerospace Engineers. I went through undergrad (majored in physics, minored in astrophysics) and then got my master's and Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering. All the years of school are the main reason I delayed my "real" life from starting!! that and I hadn't found "the one" until a few years ago. We started trying almost immediately after the wedding. I got PG after 4 months of trying, which is good given my 35+ age, although I had a miscarriage in October at 5w6d, so I am really nervous but very hopeful that this one sticks. I am due on Sept. 24 as well! This will be my first baby.

oh god salt has been amazing. Saltines and chips are my best friend. I actually usually hate salt and anything unhealthy...I better watch myself here haha. Oh and cheese! I always love cheese, but this is taking it to a new level. I'm gonna have to start replacing chocolate with carrots sticks, I think. I just lost about 60lbs and zero intention of gaining it all back.

LOL salt mmmmm salt. I've been craving cheese too!! A cheese stick and veges is a good balanced snack though!!! Congrats on the 60 lbs - that's a great achievement!! I lost 15 lbs for my wedding, but sadly, they are all back. I just don't want to gain any more before I have to (or an excessive amount!). Oddly enough, I made some chocolate milk the other night (which I usually love) and the chocolate turned me off!!!! Now that's WEIRD. I guess it'll be plain milk for a while now.

Thanks for creating this thread!

My husband and I were together almost 6 years when we got married in October, but have known each other since highschool. We are both 31. We started trying 15 months ago and have really experienced the most difficult, stressful & tragic 2 years that i have ever been through (nothing to do with our relationship). It's also been the most delightful year of my life, so that's good!

Got my BFP on Jan 18th, pretty sure we conceived on New Years or just after and am due on Sept 28th. This is my first pregnancy and we are both so excited.

As for symptoms, I'm absolutely EXHAUSTED! I go to sleep at about 7pm, wake up at 6pm and try to have a nap somewhere in between. I'm queasy but not nauseas, my back hurts, my head hurts, my joints hurt and I'm grumpy. I've had extremely light spotting for almost two weeks now as well. Fingers crossed that it doesn't turn out to be a big deal.

I think that's it! Super happy to be here and be pregnant!

welcome Belle! spotting this early is really normal.

the exhaustion is crazy, isn't it? I take a shower and need a nap...it's ridiculous. I hear it eases up in second tri, so that's some relief
