My name is Crystal, I'm 25, & been with my boyfriend for just about 9 years. We're high school sweethearts. We are expecting our first child, EDD December 14th, which is also my birthday, so I am really hoping to have the baby on that day, it would really & truly be the best birthday present! Because we have been together for so long, and never ever had a pregnancy, I was really starting to think one of us was unable to have kids. But I was wrong!
So in the last week of March, I started craving Cool Ranch Doritos, something I haven't liked since I had a bad accident in '08 when I was 21. Then on Friday, March 30th, I bled for a few hours, very light pink in color. When I looked it up, I discovered implantation bleeding, which I had never heard of. Then I started to feel different. Pregnancy crossed my mind, but I thought no, I'm not gunna think I'm pregnant, I've been so sure in the past, at times, that I was pregnant, always got really excited & happy. Then i'd get a test, & BFN, & I would cry & be very upset for days. But this was different, I had never felt this way. Hungry, then while eating nauseas, then stop eating, 10 minutes later, STARVING! Always hungry (I eat a lot anyway, but I seemed to be hungry 24/7), bouts of nausea throughout the day, stomach pains, little crampy twinges in my abdomen, my face was really greasy, even though I wash it 2-3 times a day, & breaking out. So, I went on Monday & got a First Response hpt, 3 pack. I took it and left it without lookin cuz I was afraid it'd be bfn. I was so surpised & ecstatic when I looked & it was bfp! So by Wednesday I had taken all 3, all bfp. After I told my bf, got 3 more, all the same result.
I have to wait til May 3 to see the ob/gyn cuz they wanna wait til I'm 8 weeks. But I'm going sometime next week to get bloodwork done for another dr, I'm hopin to go Monday & I'm going to tell them about the 6 bfp & ask them to test for confirmation. Sorry this is so long, I wanted to tell everything. I also have a couple questions.
Since I found out, my symptoms seem to have almost gone away. Still feeling nauseas sometimes, I haven't actually thrown up (I'm kinda glad about that, I hate throwing up, I'm kinda scared to) I'm still always hungry & thirsty & peeing ALOT. My boobs just started feeling sore, mainly the nipples, a tiny bit in the actual boobs. Do I have anything to be worried about? I think I'm just over thinkin & scaring myself for no reason. As I've never been pregnant before, I kinda don't know what to expect.
Ok I'm done, sorry for rambling! Congratulations to you all, & I'm hoping to get to know everyone these next 9 months!
I'm Lucy, EDD December 16th. That's neat that your baby is due on your birthday! This is also my first pregnancy, so I too don't know what to expect. Every symptom (or lack of a certain symptom) I google to see if it's normal. I've been a little obsessed Anyways, glad you are joining us!
congratulations!! I am also married to my high school sweetheart! My name is Mary and this is our 3rd, EDD 12/12. I know it's all so exciting but sometimes it best to just stay away from symptom checking on the internet....I havent had any m/s, just waves of nausea. I think that as your HCG levels increase the more you may start to feel nausea or m/s but everyone is different. I hope your lil one comes right on schedule...that would be one heck of a birthday present
Congrats! Symptoms come and go - I only had SLIGHT nausea with my first baby for the first week I knew I was pg and then nothing the rest of the pregnancy, so symptoms or lack thereof, don't mean much! Best of luck to you!
