before you joined a DDC after getting a BFP?

I hesitate to even peek or join a due date club because I know how many miscarriages happen in the first 4-6 weeks and it freaks me out. I mean AF isn't even late yet, it's seems so soon to me.

Did you wait or did you jump right in?

I joined right away both times although I was afraid to the second timedue to my mc the first time. You guys just lured me in. What can I say?

Well, last March I jumped right in and then had my m/c. I hesitated because something just didn't "feel" right, but I joined the Nov. 09 DDC anyway. But in July I "just knew" everything was going to be fine and dove in headfirst to the April DDC. I was one of the first 5-10 members

So I'd say go with your gut, but there's nothing wrong with waiting either!

I waited for both but I needed up leaving the Aug 09 pr(DDC). I just didn't like how i felt it was being run.

I always jump right in. But, if the early miscarriages really freak you out, I would wait until the first trimester is over. You can always come here to tell us all your fun pregnancy stuff.

I jumped right in both times. I don't know the meaning of the word wait.

And Carrie's right, you can always share with us!

I jumped right in to the March 10 DDC as soon as I got my bfp but was only there a few days before my m/c. I was a little more hesitant the next month and lurked in the April 10 DDC for a few days before I felt better about my pregnancy

So how did your mom take the news? Did she know you were TTC?

Yes, she's known for awhile. When she came to visit for Maddie Birthday she knew I was testing in hopes of being able to tell them when they were here. I told her and she was delighted, and said it's wonderful and to take good care of myself. She's pretty level headed this early in the game too - which is where I get it from I guess.

I wasnt part of this board when I was pregnant.
I wasnt much for birth boards tho so I probably would have never joined and if I chose to it would have been when I was like halfway through or so.

I swore, swore! I would not join a DDC... and then I got preggo and at about 7 or 8 weeks or so, I dove in to the Sept DDC... and lo and behold, I'm the co-host. Whodathunkit?

It's been great, again, but we've all been scared off the miscarriages and so forth, and there have been several grim days (as you all know)... but it's good to have the group around.

I'm thrilled for you, Cyndee! What DDC are you in now, then, Feb?

I jump in so fast, that I join before I even get a bfp! LOL There's a number of women that start chatting in the DDC's as soon as they know they could be due in it. Then if they get AF, they start posting in the next month. It's kinda funny.

I jumped in, but it's not the same as the feeling here. I kinda don't care much for it and don't post there often.

My first pregnancy I was scared to go in to early. I waited until I was about 8 weeks I think. I had a m/c 2 weeks later. With Zane I joined a few days after my BFP.
