FTM Check In 12/5

Hope it's okay that I started this (and copied it from the July board), I don't know how many of us first timers there are but I thought we could start GTK each other!

How far along are you?

How are things going? Things are going well I guess? It's slowly but surely sinking in that our lives may be about to change in a very big way. For whatever reason, my actually being "late" as of yesterday seems to have convinced DH that this is happening moreso than the million Wondfos and a digital all showing BFPs.

Appointments upcoming/recent? I have an OB appointment on Thursday that I had scheduled as a preconception follow up. I am excited to be like "so, surprise... and now I have a million questions." 

Rants/Raves/Questions? None at the moment.

GTKY: What have you been overly emotional about lately? Other than the closet incident I mentioned in another post (DH put my clothes away as a "favor" but did literally the worst job imaginable,and I broke down in tears in my closet when I couldn't find anything to wear to work),I haven't been overly emotional yet.

    How are things going? Things are good. I'm shocked at how many symptoms I've had so early. Cutting out my 8 cups of coffee a day has been the toughest part so far, along with the fatigue. I've been limiting myself to a couple of sips of caffeinated coffee each day. 

    Appointments upcoming/recent? I have an introductory appt scheduled with two different OBGYNs. One is the 14th, and the other on the 22nd. I'll have to decide which one to keep. 

    Rants/Raves/Questions? My boobs are growing too fast! I already had to buy a new bra yesterday. I'm mostly just very anxious about loss at this point.

    GTKY: What have you been overly emotional about lately? I am not typically a very emotional person, and my overriding emotion so far has been concern. I'm usually pretty laid back, but I've been having pregnancy related anxiety since I found out last week. I got weirdly emotional six years ago when I had my IUD removed, so I can certainly imagine that I'll have that happen again, and far more so with the pregnancy, but it hasn't happened yet.

    How are things going? Good! I keep peeing on sticks just to sure that it's still there... the line was very dark this morning so I'm pretty excited. I don't "feel" pregnant yet, and we are keeping it a surprise from our families until Christmas which will be awesome, but I hate not being able to tell my mom and sister! I'm going to dinner and a concert tonight so I'll have to try and "fake drink" which I'm stressing about!

    Appointments upcoming/recent? Not until 1/2! UGH.  

    Rants/Raves/Questions? None at the moment.

    GTKY: What have you been overly emotional about lately? Haven't been really emotional yet! I'm sure that will come soon though. 

    @legallykate sorry about the closet incident- but it is pretty funny :smile: also super jealous that you have a doctor's appointment this week! (never thought I'd say that LOL).

  • @derbysquirrel Cutting caffeine has been the hardest for me too, I used to drink two energy drinks a day at work  :# but have cut back to one (140 mg of caffeine). Getting to have my one in the morning when I get to work is now like the highlight of my day, haha.

    @ncnole26 ; I may or may not also be POAS every day to watch the line get darker. I had ordered an insane number of Wondfos so why not, but DH thinks I am crazy  :D

  • Howdy, fellow FTMs!

    How are things going? They’re going. It’s strange because I’ve spent so long TTC (since 8/2016) that I’ve gotten to the point I would disregard any symptoms. “No, I’m not pregnant I just ate too much” “No, I’m not pregnant I just didn’t sleep well last night.” Now I have to turn that completely on it’s head and I think I’m disregarding symptoms, then feeling anxious that I’m not having as many symptoms as I “should.” PGAL is a mind****

    Appointments upcoming/recent? Tomorrow, thank goodness! Going into my RE for an early ultrasound. Hoping to see at least a nice healthy yolk and fetal pole. I’d be pretty stoked if there’s a heartbeat too! 

    Rants/Raves/Questions? My appetite has been strange. My stomach hasn’t been hungry, but my mouth wants to eat everything. They are locked in a Cold War. 

    GTKY: What have you been overly emotional about lately? Haven’t noticed lots of mood changes yet. I did cry listening to Christmas Carols last week.

    FX for a heartbeat, that would be so cool!

    How far along are you? 4w4.... I had to wait my 72 hours before I could post but I found out on sunday 12/3

    How are things going? .....Fine? this is my first pregnancy so I have no idea what to expect. I'm excited/anxious/worried 

    Appointments upcoming/recent? 12/18! I think it's just a conversation with the OB, a confirmation, and some general dos and don'ts. I don't expect any kind of ultrasound of anything- but it would be nice. I will just be happy for her to say, "yes, you actually are pregnant". It still doesn't feel real. 

    Rants/Raves/Questions? So many questions! Also, nobody knows but my husband (DH, i know i have to get with it with the acronyms) and I am DYYYING to tell! My best friend is due in march and it's taking everything I have not to tell her and my mom! 

    GTKY: What have you been overly emotional about lately? lol..... When I found out on Sunday, my husband was super sick and was struggling to show his excitement because he was miserable. I had a fit because I thought he was disappointed even thought we've been trying for a few months. He's fine now and thrilled with the news, I was just struggling to process everything.
