This is a weekly check-in for those in their 1st trimester: weeks 1 through the end of week 13. I know we've all gone through a lot to get to this point so congratulations and best of luck to all of you over the next several months!
Please post a little about yourself, your EDD (if it’s not listed below- if I left you off please let me know ) any upcoming appointments, symptoms, etc. Feel free to also share your IF journey, I know many of us can relate.
QOTW: Have you made the big announcement yet? If you have or when you do, how do you plan on telling friends and family? Are you going to make it FB official? Are you as afraid as I am to let people out side of your inner circle know?
Congrats to all of the Mommies & Daddies to be:
*Finally updated to track everyone currently active!*
@Aglorentz Please let me know when you have a date! @chicandbubbly Please let me know when you have a date! @Colleen0516 Our fingers are crossed so tightly for you, and we are all sending good thoughts/prayers/whatever is in our disposition.
