Congratulations on the promotion Tracy! That's wonderful news although I hear you about the difficulty involving a career and a family. It will all work out though - you can definitely have both and still excel at your job and as a mom!
Thanks for the encouragement ladies! I think I may pick up a FRER on the way home from work - eek! I'm so scared it's just an evap though!
Thank u ladies!!! Well it actually works out better as I work shifts ATM and they r awful hours! But the promotion is normal office hours which would bet so much better with a family. But my problem is. Say I fall pregnant now when do I tell them? Lol! Gal that is most certainly ur BFP!!! Happy and healthy 9 months doll!! I'm so happy for u!!!! Xxx
Another question is an implantation dip a real thing? Does it happen a lot? I only started taking my bbt after ovulation but I no when I ovulated and what do I am as I no my body pretty well now. But I have this huge dip at 4dpo!! And I no from previous charts from last pregnancy what my general temp is before and after O! So I've def ovulated already..... ? Xx
I think you can tell your superiors that you're pregnant whenever you feel comfortable. I'm pretty sure that people normally wait until at least 16 weeks (or whenever it becomes practically impossible to hide their pregnancy depending on how big their bump gets and how quickly it gets that big). There isn't a rule that states that you have to do it at a particular time though, just whenever it feels right to you. However your workplace is required to give you time off for your prenatal appointments if necessary (at least that's how it works here, I don't know about Ireland) so you may want to tell them early on depending on what your work schedule looks like compared to your OBGYN/midwife's schedule.
Also I don't really know much about implantation dips. Some women say that they got one when they were pregnant and others say that they did not. I think it really just depends on the woman.
Tracy you can tell your job whenever you are comfortable. I told mine at 14 weeks last time because I felt like I was showing. By law, employers cannot discriminate against you or take away any promotion if they find out you're pregnant.
As for implantation dips, I am pretty sure I've never had one. I don't sleep well so my temps have been up and down although still above the cover line.
Only a few more days then you can test! Good luck!
Well showed up Tuesday right on schedule. On to cycle 11 TTC. My husband has his appointment tomorrow with his PCP so he can get his testosterone tested. Once we get those we will know if we need to move on to his sperm mobility/count done, but because we haven't reached his deductible yet the sperm testing will cost us at least $250. We are having a house built that is now 1 month ahead of schedule so every extra cent we have goes to saving for the down payment and to buy materials to finish our basement. I am terrified that we will have to put the baby making on hold until we get the house completely finished which means at least another year which really sucks because I wanted the kids to be close in age and my son will be 2 in Sept. if we have to wait another year we would be looking at a 4 year age difference.
Today I started taking the new First Response Fertility Aid Gummies I will be taking that on top of the prenatal pills I have been taking for the last year so, fingers crossed . Having to schedule sex is really starting to effect my desire for and (sorry if too much info) I know that not being extremely "turned on" can effect cervical mucous which makes it harder for to reach their target which just makes getting a BFP that much more difficult.
