**December/January BFP's **

Postby Mand8301 » Thu Jan 02, 2014 7:23 pm

Hello ladies! If you got your BFP in December 2013 or January 2014, join us here! We can symptom spot together and then commiserate through the rough first trimester!! :)

I'll introduce myself first:
I'm Amanda. Just turned 30 in October and have been actively TTC since then. Engaged to my DF who I will marry on April 27, 2014 sporting my new baby bump! ;) I'm a RN who works in home care! No previous children of my own, but two stepkids who belong to my fiance. They are 14 and 11, but will be 15 and 12 by the time little bean makes its entrance in September!

My due date is 9/12/14 :)

SO excited to be here, but cautiously optimistic. Cannot wait to get through the next few weeks, and especially the first tri, just to know that this lil' bean will stick around! :)

DH: 37 yrs old

DD: 2 (born 9/8/14)

Expecting number two around April 23, 2018!

Hey Mand! Good to see you over here :)

I'm Kandi. I'm 25. I got married in December of 2012 to my best friend. We have been actively TTC since October 2013 and just found out we're pregnant! This is my first pregnancy.
I've already started to notice myself thinking of things slightly differently. I drive a bit more cautiously, and find myself googling 'pregnancy' often. A few select family and close friends are aware of the pregnancy but we won't be "public" until after the first trimester.
My first doctor's appointment is Jan 13th (was supposed to be tomorrow but got cancelled due to doctor having a family emergency)
I'm excited to continue this journey with the people I've met and will meet. :)
~*TTC since October 2013*~

Hi Ladies,
So happy and feel blessed to get a December bfp! I am a little nervous and pray it sticks. I got a bfp on 27th Dec and really didn't expect it as i had a few negative tests a few days before and i had no frer tests with me argh!
I am 35 and married for nearly 2 years. We started ttc in Nov 13. Was sick that month but tried again in December and thankfully here i am. I don't want to post too much info about me as i do not want to get spotted on here as nobody knows yet apart from DH. Went to the doctor yesterday and got bfp confirmed by urine sample. Should I have gotten a blood test? I have to see doctor again in 5 weeks maybe they will take blood then. Doc said the hospital won't do my first scan until i am at least 18 weeks gone! I am now 5 weeks and 3 days gone now. I am shocked that i won't see my baby and make sure things are ok until i am nearly 5 months, crazy, i will have a mega bump on me then and i want to be able to tell people by 3 or 4 months. I think i will need to book and pay for an early scan in a private clinic at 8-12 weeks. I am 35 and have epilepsy so i want to make sure everything is ok. The doctor said he would request an early scan due to my medication for epilepsy but didn't sound convincing. I am pretty sure in other countries my age and epilepsy would class me as high risk. I will be very annoyed if the hospital do not see me before 5months/18-22 weeks.
I am due 2nd Sept 14 but doctor said it would more than likely be closer to 7th Sept 14, we will see. I am a bit nervous as i have had light brown spotting the last few days and mild cramps. I know this is normal. My normal period would be just finishing 2 days ago so maybe it is just breakthrough.
Would love to hear all your updates.

SEPT- I couldn't figure out how to make my ticker show the right week either! How did you fix it!? As for the wait, I was super shocked as well. My doctor is going to draw blood on 1/15 but I expected her to bring me in right away!! My first OB appt won't be until mid February, and even then I believe they'll only do a Doppler to search for the heartbeat. It's just crazy to me that they do so little in the first tri!!

I was also wondering about bleeding. My AF is due today, and I know Marie will join me in worrying whether she's gonna show up. I know realistically that I'm pregnant because ive had many positive tests but it just doesn't feel real yet! I wish I knew that my betas were doubling but I guess I gotta have faith!

As for me, it snowed a lot here last night and now I gotta drive to work in this mess. Makes me nervous to be out driving when I have to protect my lil bean!

I've always had a lot done in the first trimester because my first pregnancy was an ectopic. I will likely have blood drawn on the 8th and then an ultrasound and bloods on the 10th. Then I imagine they'll do another ultrasound a week or two later and repeat blood draws

Hey Ladies,, I am 30 years old and currently preggers with our third child. Team blue this time lol...but will take anything happy and healthy!!!! I have two darling daughters ages 4 and almost three....it will be nice to have a larger gap between siblings, but nothing crazy....I work full time in a foreclosure department and I am currently finishing my masters in elementary education and hope to teach next year after the little bundle of joy is born. I am waiting with anticipation for my 8-9 week checkup with my doctor (earliest she will see me). I am like you, with the first trimester being so crucial....I would think we would be on a first name basis with the doctor the first tri and then every now and then after that. I am trying not to stress out about what could happen and stay focused on just creating a cozy environment for my baby B. (brenden or bailie). Right now, I am suffering a sinus cold, and having nausea bouts here and there, some aching here and there...not really cramping..but definatlely bloating and fullness. But, we will soon be suffering the symptons in major force within the next few weeks.

Kristie- our daughters are about the same ages!! Bethany will be 4 this month and Bailey will be 3 next month!!

Amanda- it is a hostess exclusive!! BUT if you want it I can set you up an online party and all you need to do is get $200 in orders.... And you could so that yourself getting items for your nursery!!

Ill be getting little carry all caddies, a pack n pull for diapers and wipes, some junior cubes to hold burp cloths and onesies and things, a room for two to use as a hamper, and zipper pouches to keep the change of clothes free of stains in the diaper bag and things...

So think about it and if you want me to set you up a link to collect some orders (just $200) to qualify to get the hostess exclusive, $25 in credit and one item half price.
