Doing great I have another appointment tomorrow. If all goes well then I will be telling my family about the pregnancy later this month. I am sooo excited. I think I am going to print a picture of the babies u/s on a shirt for Naden and have it say something like I'm going to be a big brother or We have a hearbeat or something corny like that. My parents fly into town to visit this month so I'll let him wear it to the airport. I am really starting to pop so that is a good thing since I have a complete lack of symptoms.

eta: My cousin is in town and she doesn't know. It is so hard to keep a secret. She must think I've gained a lot of weight. I wonder if she suspects anything...

Well so far I am doing great other than a little sleepy but nothing to bad and my bb's are a little sore. Other than that I am good still POAS to m ake sure this is real
I told my SIL (we are really close) and other than you ladies just my dh knows.
I really want to tell my mom but I don't want the "Don't get your hopes up lecture" So i am trying to hold out until I am ready to listen to it I really just want her to be excited and I know she will be but at the same time I know how guarded she can be and right now I just want to be excited and not scared

I am doing good - no freak outs this week (aren't you all glad?! lol!). My nausea comes and goes, always sounding like a truck driver (nows the time to get back at DH!), very tender BB's, heart was racing a day or two ago, runny nose, SOO tired, and a few more I can't think of at the moment. I have my next u/s this Friday, so I am excited for that!

Danica - btw, I LOVE that idea - soo stinkin' cute!

Eleysia - I think your DH and mine are in the same "Proud Daddy Club"!! lol, he told a bunch of people at the office like the next day after my BFP - gheesh!

Victoria, gotta love em right? haha.


I have a question.. I think Danica POAS until she felt better that her bean was growing and her lines were getting darker but um... what do i do once the test line is as dark or darker that the control line???? shouldnt there still be a difference in the shades?! i had my mind set on POAS until my bloodwork at 8 weeks! now what?

Hey eleysia I am a few days behind you and mine is like barely a different color than the control line so I am with you I liked peeing on it cuz it made me feel better but by tomorow morning it hink they will be the same color cuz there was barely a difference in them
Maybe it will be like an opk and we will be able to get the test line darker than the control line? I don't know but its worth a try, regardless I still like seeing that it isn't getting lighter

Hello all!

I have one week left for first trimester and I'm still so afraid of another loss. I just finished Morgan's memory album and I can't look through it a second time, I just break down.

I have an apt with my midwife tomorrow afternoon. I don't know if she'll be able to pick up the heartbeat at 11+6 weeks. Even after losing over 70 pounds I still have a lot of tummy.

Dee, thanks for asking about us. All you ladies take care, I'm so excited for all of you!!!!

I'm doing pretty good. I still have spotting off and on, but I just have to believe it's from the subchorionic bleed and that everything is ok.

My symptoms are sore bbs that come and go alot, going from not hungry to starving in no time flat , and occasional slight nasuea. Something tells me with these two I will end up with m/s, just hopefully it won't get too bad.

We have told EVERYONE! We started telling the same day I got my BFP and then when we got the u/s we sent it to everyone we know.

My next appt and u/s is next Thursday 5/22

Will you do a second draw? If so when are you getting it done?

I am praying for everyone to have very sticky beans!

Brittney I dont think ill get another one. Since this was a leftover test there was not a scheduled one, ill try to get another put in the system, but i doubt ill get it

My next draw for anything will prolly be around 6-8wks iforget when but it will be for my prego registration with my command.

How is everyone feeling today?

I am just over 9 weeks now. I am glad to be beyond the 6 and 8 week mark since that is when I had my mc's. Now I just have to make it past 28 weeks. I am feeling pretty good. No m/s yet, extremely hungry, thirsty, and tired all of the time, using the potty often, sore bb's, some mild cramping, and definitely very emotional lately. I keep thinking about my Abby and how she should be here to meet her little brother or sister. I guess these are all good symptoms, but I kind of wish I had m/s so that I could feel more pregnant...if that makes any sense.
