October 2019 BMB Waiting Room

Hello, Mamas! While we wait for our official BMB let's gather around, drink some decaf coffee, and discuss how long we're going to be able to wear our skinny jeans before we turn into planets. I'll go first!
I'm a FTM and found out five days ago on 10DPO. I'm due October 1 and my husband and I are both excited and nervous in equal measure.
Can't wait to meet you all. :smiley:

    Hi! I go here, too. I was here many moons ago on TTGP and my first BMB under a similar name..

    Anyway, I’m a TTM, hold on to my 200 mg of daily caffeine as if my life depends on it, and refuse to wear maternity pants as long as possible. 

    My due date is within the first 5 days of October, but we won’t know for sure until I have a dating scan in a few weeks. I’ll most likely deliver in late September since my MFM won’t let me go past due.

    And now, if only I could figure out how to update my photo and sig on mobile, I’ll be golden. The site has change since I was here 4 years ago. I’ll get it eventually 😂

  • Hello! FTM here as well, currently sipping the decaf as we speak. we found out at 10DPO as well! Estimating due date around the first few days of oct, but we’ll find out for sure in a few weeks. Looking forward to being a part of our little October’s group 💖

  • @cmbt2 Welcome back to The Bump and congrats! It's nice to have someone here who knows about pregnancy because every minute I'm like, "What is going on?! Is this normal? I'm going to Google it until I am sufficiently freaked out by my findings." Also, I love your avatar!
    @a_hangli47 Welcome! It looks like we are on the same timeline. :smiley:

    Just as an FYI, they keep your due date based on LMP unless you measure more than a week different or have been seeing an RE (or if you’re like me and a SS)

    Thanks! I was like that my first (and second) time, too. It’s very common to google anything and everything! Just don’t google too much! It all leads to bad results 🙈 pregnancy is weird and normal is a relative term, man. That’s all I’ve got

    the avatar is similar to the one I used to have, but I can’t seem to find my original. Sigh. That’s what happens when you delete your account years ago 🤣 I have a SM lanyard I wear my work badge on and a lot of people comment on it once they realize what it is

  • @cmbt2 See? You know all of the things! I wish I could disable Google during this pregnancy, but who are we kidding?

    One time I went to Comic Con dressed up as Sailor Moon and it was so fun!

    @elle-0409 thanks for getting this going! I hope we see a lot more TTGP grads!

    @cmbt2 I'm also holding onto my caffeine, but I'm going to guess I'm surpassing the daily recommended amount lol

    STM here and also found out at 10 dpo. Due date based off O is 10/5 but I'm quite certain I'll have a RCS in September.
    The guideline is 200-300mg a day 🤷🏼‍♀️ My two cups of coffee (which will likely become black tea once the aversion kicks in) fall in there somewhere. I just don’t go for anything with additional caffeine as a precaution 

    random side note- if you drink the crystal lite teas, unless it specifically says decaf, they’re caffeinated. They changed their formulas a few years ago to include real tea

    *i’ll TW this since I mention a CP*

    My MWs have no idea what to do with me. I only have a week long window of what the EDD is. With a blaring positive at 8dpo according to my chart, betas in higher than expected range for the dpo they were drawn at, and only being 2 weeks from a negative beta draw following a CP (3 weeks from when it started) when I got a positive, they’re at a complete loss outside of Sept 30-Oct 5 🤦🏼‍♀️

  • @cmbt2 I think because I'm a FTM I'm scared to do anything. :D I'm sure I'll be more lax about caffeine after the first trimester. I'm sorry to hear about your loss, and that your MWs are baffled. Hopefully, they figure it out and everything is perfect even if they're not sure of the EDD.

    Trust me, your feelings are totally normal! I know plenty of women who aren’t comfortable with caffeine in first tri (or at all in pregnancy) and plenty of OBs who say none at all. 

    I’ll warn you, I’m pretty much an open book and can talk your ear off about a lot of things baby and pregnancy related 😂🙈 I also love using emojis lol

  • @wanderlost, congrats! And wow, a positive on 8dpo?! That's amazing. I have also been peeing on things nonstop. I have about 50 or 60 cheapies that I am hoping I won't need again for quite some time, so I am basically using one every time I go to the bathroom just to use them up. Annnnnd I may have just bought more FRERs at the store just now. Can't stop won't stop peeing on things.
