We were all getting our BFP's!

(Meredith's FB post inspired this thread!)

Do remember the exact date you got your BFP? What were your thoughts and emotions like at this time last year?

I didn't POAS until the end of the month. May 28th or 29th I think. I had been having some suspicions but I just couldn't believe it so I was avoiding thinking about it, lol.

I cried when the positive came up, and not tears of joy, lol. It was definitely an unexpected accident but of course it turned out to be the most beautiful sort of "oops". We all adore Lincoln and are so happy he is here with us.

I just posted that on FB too. Mine was a year ago today on May the 4th! I was supposed to have surgery in two days so that we could actually start TTC. So I went in for my pre-op and my test showed I was PG. On my way home I bought a digital and was so excited to see that beautiful word "Pregnant"!

Later that evening my DH & I had a movie date. After seeing the Avengers I talked him into dessert. We sat by the fountain with our ice cream and we each threw a coin in the water for a wish. That's when I pulled out the digital and I told him mine had already come true. It was wonderful- we both cried! Then we told our parents on mothers day a week later.

I told someome this the other day! lol I got mine on May 2nd. We had been TTC and I just felt "off". I had been taking tests for like 2 weeks and of course all negative so I gave up! Finally my hubby convinced me to take another one that morning, I was all depressed waiting for it to say "not pregnant " lol
I was so happy but at the same time I was like FREAKING out inside. It didnt feel real to me, I kept taking more tests to see if it would go away .
Reality sunk in literally the very next day when morning sickness showed up..ugh dont miss that!

I am very proud also to say that right after that test I went and threw away all of my cigarettes, and I havnt had one since

Aw dang girl I'm an inspiration! haha jk

I remember it exactly. We had been trying and I didn't really feel pregnant and I was trying SO hard not to stalk the chat rooms or symptom spot. Honestly I really didn't even have any symptoms I can remember. I was sitting at work at 4pm and just had the thought that I should buy a test and test today. It was May 4th, which was an important day in my family. It felt right and my period was due the next day. I picked up some cheapies at KMart and then went home and tried to hold off peeing for a few hours to give myself the best possible results. My DH was out seeing The Avengers with my brother. I used two sticks because I'm classy like that and they instantly showed two lines. I was FREAKING out with nervousness and excitement.

The way I told my DH was we have this board in our bathroom that is frame with a printout behind it that says "I love you today because" and you can write on it with an expo marker, so I (first cleaned off) the test, taped it to the board, and wrote "You're going to be a dad!". And of course when he came home he didn't even notice the board, but when I showed him he was certainly shocked/happy/nervous/all those crazy feelings!

I can't believe here we are a year later with an almost 4 month old!

I got mine on may 9 after only 5 cycles of trying. I figured given my age and the amount of time I was on birth control it would take forever.

That morning everything smelled soooo strong. And by lunchtime I was so dizzy. I didn't want to test til hubby was around but I couldn't wait and went home and tested at lunch and at 9dpo had a faint positive! JM knew before my husband did!!

He got home and I showed him the test and thought it was negative. The next day I used a digi and the words popped up right away!

Today, May 5th!!

My DH was on the other side of the world, literally for another 2 weeks and I took the test by myself, he didn't even know I suspected that I was pregnant. I received the shock of my life. She was an unplanned baby BUT very welcomed. I held off a few days before I told my DH.......he was so happy!!

For me it was exactly a year ago that I got my bff. After six months of trying for a baby. I was so sure I wasn't pregnant but I took a test anyway. I took two tests, both positive, but I couldn't believe it. When my husband got home, we went to the drugstore and I got a digital test. I had to see the actual word pregnant before I could believe it. I was only about two weeks along at that point. My husband had to sit down after I read the test results. He got light headed. I felt panicky. After a day we started to get excited. After a few weeks, we told our family.

I didn't find out until June 4th, and that was only because I realized I was probably due for AF anytime, then the more I got to thinking, I realized I was probably late. So I spent the morning at work digging through my old messages between a couple of my best friends because we often complain to each other about cramps and such. I hadn't even been keeping track of my cycles since we had JUST talked about trying for #2 later that summer. I finally figured out I was about 2 weeks late (yeah, ooops) and ran to the dollar store over lunch for a couple cheapy tests since I just couldn't believe it. That thing SCREAMED pink as soon as the pee hit it!

Then, my phone was stupid and instead of posting the pic in my facebook playroom from my son's group, it posted it to my main page. Luckily one of those mommies spotted it right away and let me know it was in the wrong spot so I frantically removed it before anyone saw! I had to do a bit of damage control (my oldest sister and one other firend had seen and commented already) because I hadn't told DH yet. Geez, I felt like an idiot.

When I got home from work I told DH that Sean was going to be a big brother After how long we tried for our first, it was so nice to have a semi-surprise the second time around And we could finally use the big brother shirt we had picked up for Sean so we snapped some pics that night and sent them to our families. I was on a high for another week or two until the nausea finally hit, lol!

I found out on April 27th. I was bad at testing early and getting really sad with the BFN, so I decided to wait until AF was officially late. I was one day late and got up at 630 AM on a Sunday to test which is super early for me. The two pink lines were almost instant. I wanted to do something for DH to be cute so I went downstairs to plan, but then he got up to look for me. I told him I was getting water and then he asked for a glass, so I pulled out the bottle of champagne that was in our frig and said he would have to drink it alone for the next 9+ months and then showed him the test. Of course we toasted... at 630 AM, me with my water and him with the champagne.

2 May, at 10 DPO. We had been NTNP for just the one cycle, and I suspected at 3 DPO. On the morning of the second, I gagged as soon as I put my toothbrush in my mouth, and I told DH, " I think I'll buy a test today." I finally got around to it at about four o'clock, and didn't actually pee on it for a couple more hours. I gift wrapped it almost without looking at it, because I knew what it said already.
As DH unwrapped it that night after the kids were in bed, I asked, "Remember that conversation about how it wouldn't be the worst thing ever if we got pregnant again right now?" His face just lit up,but he was way more surprised than I was.lol.

wife to Michael, mama to Zoe (13), Selene (9), Garvin (7), Gwen (4), Thomas (2.5), and a bonus surprise, due 30 April 2016

We got our on Sunday, May 27, 2012 at 8:45 AM EST.

First I was in shock, then denial and then after I accepted that it was true...fear. After 4.5 years of trying and 3 miscarriages, I didn't think we would ever have a baby and I really couldn't believe I was pregnant again. When I got the BFP, a flood of emotions came back to me from what I had endured before. While I was excited (a little), the predominate emotion for me was being afraid; I didn't want to go through another loss.

The entire pregnancy remained a huge source of stress for me (because of my history) and my OB assured me that women who have endured miscarriages often feel that way; so I didn't have to feel as if there was something 'wrong' with me. Today I am blessed with the most wonderful baby boy, God has truly given me a wonderful gift and I am forever grateful!!!

How I told my hubby?

He was in bed after working mids, I woke him up and never said a thing beyond "Hun, please come with me a moment." I escorted him to the lavatory and pointed at the pregnancy test. My husband (half asleep) wasn't sure what I was pointing at and said, "Huh? I don't know what you mean." I again pointed at the test and said, "No, look!" When he realized it was a positive pregnancy test his eyes became HUGE and he got the biggest smile on his face and hugged me so tight. The rest was history...

Aww these stories are making me get butterflies!!

I found out Monday April 23rd. I hadn't even missied AF yet. She was due to visit on Friday. I was like 3 weeks pregnant. I had a dream the night prior that I was pregnant and was hanging with my husbands supervisor's wife who was also pregnant. I've never met this woman and she had a name and everything (wasn't the right name but you catch my drift). It felt so real. So I woke up about 7 and thought wow I should test after that dream. I did and there was a faint second line. I was in SHOCK and probably shaking. I had to take a negative picture of the test to make sure I was seeing 2 lines. With all that DH and I were going through I decided to not tell him till I saw it on a digi. I did text my girlfriend to make sure she was seeing what I saw. I bought a digi pack on my way home from work and sure enough PREGNANT. More shock, a little screaming, a couple "oh my God's". When DH got home from class that night I told him my dreamed then showed him the test. Talk about shock-- he couldn't even form a sentance. He said something like "well it's so light" then I showed him the digi... Yup no denying it. He told his dad right away but I didn't tell my parents till after my first appointment. Oh I'm pretty sure I told my bestfriends before I told DH too. The funny thing is I asked them if a October babyshower was ok and I meant to add a picture of the test but forgot it. They were confused for a moment but caught on quickly. Crazy... I'll never forget that moment, those feelings...
