Wow smash that is such great news! Where is the little girl from? When would she be able to come home? Yeah probably exactly what a bfp feels like super excited at the probability of a child but scared bc of the risk something will go wrong!
Afm I had spotting twice when I wiped on tues. I completely panicked and called my dr. He had me come in for an ultrasound and we got to see a beautiful strong heartbeat and baby measuring right on track! Dr found a small fluid filled sac in my uterus near my cervix and said this is prob what caused the bleeding. He said it should pass on its own and won't hurt the baby. I have another ultrasound on tues to check on it again.
I'm so sorry I have been absent. I hope you all still remember me Congrats to all of you who finally got your BFPs/Adoption success!
I took a break from ttc and bnb because it was stressing me out quite frankly. I didn't want to start getting depressed and such so I just decided to focus on something else, like getting a handle on a career. I found a school in OKC that has a Speech Language Pathology Assistant program that I'm currently in stage two of the application process. I passed all three entrance/placement exams (math, reading, writing) with great scores! I was so nervous because I hadn't looked at any math in about 10 years, so I'm extra happy that I got an 86%! Yay for studying. Anyway, I will probably hear the final decision sometime in July.
The day after my success is Math, I still had high temps so decided to take a test at 15 dpo....and....BFP!!!! OMG OMG BFP!!! Finally!!! I was so thrilled and jittery and triple checking the tests (yes, i took two, then another when DH came home so he could experience watching the second line appear). I called him at work straight away at 8am after I saw the result and yelled into the phone, "We did it! We made a baby!!!" He was stunned, and was at a loss for words. He was freaking out a bit though, talking about college funds and how we'd pay for it, etc. and I was like, "um....we still have like 19 years. Relax. One step at a time!" But now, two days later, he's super excited. We even started looking at Target's baby section yesterday while running errands. Finally, our 3rd room will be something other than a storage area, and all those little cute baby paraphernalia we bought long ago can be dusted off and put to use!! YAY! It still hasn't sunk in yet, honestly, believe it or not, but we are SUPER SUPER EXCITED!
Rcaf that is amazing! Many congratulations. It really completely knocks u over - after trying to get your head around that it won't ever happen and then it does! It took me to the scan at 12 weeks to accept it and I started showing last week so just waiting for movements and I think I've felt a few but nothing like pow! It's just an amazing miracle happy and healthy 9 months!
Thank you ladies! I still have the FirstResponse test on the side of the tub and when I pass it, I remember that I'm really pregnant and it is like finding out all over again. I'm going to go nuts at this rate lol! But I can't throw it out for some reason.
H&H 9 to you guys if I haven't wished it already
I'm predicted a girl too, Trytofind We will see how true it is soon enough!
I've signed up for a couple baby websites already and I haven't even been to my first doc's appointment lol. The thing is, I was due for a well-woman exam (annual pelvic) and then the tornado happened and blew away my doc's office! So I had to reschedule and the new date is next tuesday, which is 4 weeks before my first midwife appointment, so it should be interesting getting checked down there twice lol. I'm hoping to get a blood preg test done at the first appointment, that's why i haven't canceled it
I so wish I was in the states for the scans - u guys get them so early! I didn't have my first scan until 12 weeks and the 20 week scan is 2.5 weeks away! We're finding out and if its a boy I will be very surprised lol
However I definitely don't envy ur natural disasters! I can't imagine how scary a tornado is, did u know anyone who was hurt rcaf? Good luck with ur first appt mine was a bit strange - she asked my husband if he had been screened for Down's syndrome (because his sister has it) but there is no such thing! It's due to the formation of the DNA so it's not hereditary. Scary that there are people who should know about it talking and advising people. Plus we have a 1 in 2495 chance of the baby having downs which is pretty low risk!
Btw I'm sure Brit will back me up on this but u will have advice coming from every direction, ull even have people say 'I won't give u advice but my midwife said to me...' Ull have people judge u on every decision or thought u have on ur pregnancy - someone even told me I was selfish as I intend to breast feed!! So ignore them they are called old wives for a reason lol
