Thank you! I hate this ticker phase haha. I got BFPs with all my kids at 8dpo so the tickers always look ridiculous for the first two weeks.

Oh man amen. I'm exhausted. I had HG with both my boys so I'm hoping like crazy this one is a girl and is nice to me but I'm not holding out much hope lol. I'm so excited but I occasionally walk by a mirror and go "What have we done?!?"

I keep having slight cramps. They don't really hurt, they just are there. It is really worrying me.

Welcome southernbound! I got my bfp at 8 dpo as well. I'm 5 weeks now, but am still holding out on the ticker. I wanted to wait to avoid it seeming funny like you said. I do have a few apps that I'm using to follow the pregnancy and they annoyed me saying that my fertilized egg is still in the fallopian tube, when I'm sitting there looking at a positive test, haha

I also heard that you can use an ovulation stick to test for pregnancy, so I tried today (cause poas addict) and holy cow the test line was sooo much darker then the control line. It was more positive then my pregnancy test. Crazy.
Its true, thats actually how i suspected this LO lol. I kept taking OPKs to time BDing. I mever did get a positive for ov.ing. and then one day i did. But then it stayed positive and for me that never happens. So that is what prompeted me to take an HPT. It was def positive. Light, but there without having to second glance.

I'm actually terrified now as my last pregnancy once I hit 6 weeks the severe sickness took over so I have a week left and then I'm probably going to be very poorly for a few months. I kinda of just want to tell the world but we are trying to keep it a secret as long as we can, I usually tell my dad straight away! My sisters have both had good news this week and i want to join in lol
I had HG with my daughter and i mever wanted to be pregnant again...and yet here i am ive had naseua since before my bfp, which was at 2 weeks. They are concerned i may develop HG again so they had me start taking unisome and B6 today. I take a total of 100mg of B6 per day, throughout the day. And then i have to take half a tablet of unisome w it at breakfast, a half a dinner, and a whole unsiome at bed. In the past they had me on zofran/phenegram but that was wheb things got out of control, so since im nasueous now but its not anything horrid, they want me to try this first. Said i had to start it early to be effective tho. I hope none of us get bad MS or HG!


AFM, i had my first appt today. We went over specifics of my thyroid condition and they want me to call the endocrinologist today. Probably have to see him monthly for thyroid labs.

They also want me to take unisome and b6 to hopefully prevent HG.

Bc of my history, they want me to come in for a scan on july 18th. Normally they dont do that until 8 to 10 weeks but given my MCs and other past issues and semi recent surgery, they want to check things early. They were very clear that we may or may not see anything since its so early. They will also check to see if there are more cysts.

...im excited to go tho
They confirmed my edd as march 7th, u less us says otherwise. So apparently i turn five weeks tomorrow (or wednesday depending on which ticker i go by lol)

I hope everyone is feeling well.

Welcome southernbound!

Yesterday was my first full day with family keeping our little secret. It was hard, but also kind of exciting. With our first we lived far away, so it was easy to wait, for our second we announced at five weeks haha this one we want to wait until 12+ weeks.

I think I'll be getting sick this pregnancy, I hope not but I have been getting waves of motion sickness type nausea which I NEVER got with my other two.

Mild cramping continues too.

Same here with the cramping. Guppy I'm so excited about your scan!! Please let us know how it goes! Mushy I'm having the same problem lol. We told our families pretty early before but this time I'm going to stay at my normal work unit a little longer and since my dad and I work for the same company I don't want it getting out but keeping the secret is SO SO HARD! It's so hard not to let it slip by saying something like "Oh yeah we got Gavin out of the crib so the new baby can use it" etc etc. And same with the cramping here too. Early pregnancy is cruel.
