Full story here, but just short of one year trying and a week before laparscopic surgery to fix some problems that may be making me infertile, we found out that we're expecting. I am so nervous for what might be ahead, and so afraid that something might happen, but trying so hard to remain happy in this moment. I really hope that this is it for DH and me (and everyone else here). First beta was 162, and second (today) was 322, so I'm cautiously optimistic...
I hope we're all here for good -- looking forward to meeting everyone!
I feel very bloated - I didn't get this with my dd and I look more pregnant now than I did at 16 weeks last time!
Does anyone else feel in limbo? It's hard to get excited when there is such a long way to go... Although I am obviously :-)
And I've worried myself doing more hpts - I did a Boots early response on Saturday morning and got a definite but faint positive followed by a Clearblue digi in the afternoon that confirmed I was 1-2 weeks pregnant. I'm going to do the second one a week later to see if it changes but in the meantime I've used a couple of internet cheapies and they don't seem to have got much darker.
Anyone else still testing?
I'm mostly only dealing with cramping -- sharp but quick pain (like AF cramps) every six hours or so. Luckily no bleeding or spotting. I do have a little bit of bloat too now that I think about it.
I am still trying to remind myself that this is real, and that this could be it for us! It took a year to get here, and sometimes I thought I'd never see a second line on anything but an OPK. But I'm still excited, even though I'm also nervous and scared that it might not work out. But you're right -- I'm at 4 weeks, 1 day -- it is soooo long before I can feel like I'm out of the woods! I'm going to go crazy before I get out of the first trimester!
I also feel bloated Today, Halle71 I am having a really hard time getting excited this early. I just found out yesterday and I'm already so nervous that it's too good to be true. I wish I could just fast ford to 2nd trim.
I've said the same thing to DH about ten times now! I don't want to rush through this pregnancy and not be able to enjoy all the little things, but sometimes I seriously wish I could just fast forward to 12 weeks -- I am going to be a ball of nerves till then.
Just a pregnancy related question...When are you girls telling your family?I'm torn whether I should wait until 6, 8, or 12 weeks? Easter is in 2 weeks and I will only be a little over 5 weeks. It's gonna be so hard to be around family for the holiday and not let the cat out of the bag! I just got my bfp yesterday and I'm nervous enough the way it is just hoping and praying this bean stays put and grows well. So what are your plans?
Well, about four weeks ago, when we had set up the surgery for all the issues that the fertility specialist found, we finally told our entire family and close friends that we were infertile. It was the hardest thing I've ever done, but I'm glad we did it. But NOW, they are all expecting me to go into surgery next week, and we've got to figure out a story as to why we're not going ahead with it. I know they would be thrilled to find out early, but I'm terrified of telling everyone the good news only to lose the baby later. DH and I are thinking that we want to wait until the end of the first trimester -- so around 12 to 14 weeks (hopefully we'll be able to make a trip back home to tell people in person).
I don't know how we'll tell them yet! I had all these plans for how I'd tell DH, and then the minute that second line showed up I was screaming and crying so those plans clearly went out the window... I'll think of some cute things to do to tell them, but quite honestly, I think they'll be over the moon no matter how we tell them, so we might just wing it!
Another first timer here, just got our BFP yesterday and due December 10th!!!!
Already with very sore BBs and mild nausea thoughout the day (nothing unbearable), will get my blood test results today.
STILL. IN. SHOCK.
Please stick, little monkey!
DH wants to tell his family at Easter...I'm torn because I know he wants to shout it from the mountaintops, but I know how common M/C is this early...
