Introduce Yourself Here!

Re: Introduce Yourself Here!

  • I stand corrected. 
    People think we become mothers when we give birth but the truth is we become mothers the moment we start calling our babies to us in our thoughts, dreams and prayers. Some paths are short and some are so long that you can easily forget where you were headed.

    How I feel all of the time.

  • The two grad threads genuinely confused me and it was an honest mistake. I clearly have no malicious harm and I’ve tried my hardest to not offend anyone and be gentle.

    My best friend of 30 years has been dealing with infertility and losses for 7 years. I completely understand the sensitivity and would never belittle that. 

    I also didnt mean for my post here to be crabby. I was simply stating that I hate that I had to “ghost” the ttc board as that’s how it felt. I really liked everyone there. 

    I generally an an overly thoughtful and friendly human—it’s often joked that I’ve never met a stranger. I’m the friend people go to when they need empathy and understanding. So I’m sorry if you felt badly by anything I inadvertently did. The rules are tricky. This is all new to me. Please have some understanding for my mistake. 

    Sorry, again.

  • Hello!

    Got a positive today, so I'm joining the club!  I'm 30 and living in Utah.  I teach English online and piano lessons.  This will be baby #2.  DD was born Sept 2016.  I'm super excited, but also nervous!  Planning to hit the OB tomorrow for progesterone testing.  First pregnancy was a very early miscarriage.  Second, I tested and had low progesterone.  I took supplements and have my beautiful 2yo.  Anyone planning a private Facebook group?  I joined one for DD and they are still my tribe.
    Jan17 has a private fb group but we didn’t start it until halfway through 3rd tri.

  • @mormongal88 My D14 group also didn't start a FB group until mid 3rd trimester. I personally want to know people well before I let them into my private world. I am still really close with a number of my D14 moms and don't think there was any harm in waiting that long.

  • I also think it's good to wait. I didnt join my first bmb Facebook group because I felt like I didn't really know them. But my second we waited until 3rd tri and almost everyone still around joined because we talked SO MUCH.

  • @soralette awesome that your an FET mama too! I hope your pregnancy goes nice as smooth as well! Thank you for edd help, so it seems Oct 12th for me! When was your transfer?
    Happy to be of use! :) And thank you!!

    We did our transfer (two 5-day blastocysts; one was 'fair' quality did not expand very much before transfer and the other was poor quality but expanded OK) on the 14th, so we're looking at Oct 2nd. :)

    TW: loss mentioned


    Hi! I'm tentatively jumping in.  I'm 30 and live in CA with my husband and 2 year old DD, born January 2017.  I got my BFP last week.  EDD is either 10/13 or 10/14.  This is my second pregnancy and despite doing all the things TTC and obsessing over testing, I'm having trouble connecting with this pregnancy now that it's happening.  I'm not sure if it's because I'm so busy with work and taking care of DD or the lack of symptoms.  I had HG with my last pregnancy and by 5 weeks I was vomiting multiple times per day.  The fact that I've been mildly nauseous a couple times hasn't been very reassuring.  

    My previous pregnancy started as twins and I lost one at 10 weeks.  It was awful and has made me anxious about being pregnant again.  

    FX everything goes well and I can get out of this funk!

  • @mormongal88 Oct15 group, we formed a Proboards group and a facebook group toward third trimester. There was about 50 of us. We rarely used the facebook, but Proboards was perfect. Now, we just have a snapchat group of about 20 of us that still talk on a regular basis. I'd love to do something similar this time around! It' so great to get to know others who are going through the exact same thing!

    That definitely makes me feel old. Still firmly in FB land. SC is way beyond my horizon.

  • I figured it out! Just had to log out and log back in. :)

    It's...going. We are paying out of pocket for everything and it's the slow season for my hubs line of work. So things come to a stall during the winter months. 

    We still need to floor a guest bedroom, the pantry, and the office/dining room. Then trim the whole house and put in doors.
    We just got our kitchen usable so that's been nice to have a kitchen back.

  • @sarahtothea Welcome! We conceived via IUI also, our second round. I’ll be sending good thoughts your way that this is the sticky one for you!!
  • @sarahtothea Congrats! sending tons of sticky thoughts your way!!
  • Hey everyone! I'm cautiously joining you! ^^
    I'm 31 and DH is 27 and we are from Massachusetts! EDD is 10/11 if all goes well!

    I'm coming from the IF boards and we got out BFP from IUI #3 after TTC for over 4 years. *TW* I'm really hoping this is it because I have gotten BFP from every IUI, but the previous 2 were CPs, which was really sad. This time I made it through all the beta draws and the nurse seems pretty convinced that this one is sticking around. I'm still super nervous that this isn't going to work out, but I'm here anyways! Trying to be optimistic ^^ *End TW* We will go for our ultrasound in about a week and a half and I honestly can't wait!

    I never know what to say as an introduction, but DH and I are big nerds! We like anime, video games, conventions, and stuff like that! Personally, I like to draw and paint! We also have a dog and a cat. Besides that we are boring homebodies! LOL

    Excited to meet you all ^^

    All the MA ladies have me rocking some major Boston nostalgia :)
