Hi, ladies. Just turned a test this morning and I’m excited to find some other April moms. EDD here is April 3 based on LMP, but I ovulated late, so I expect it to change. I am a second time mom and was involved on the S17 board with my son. I’m 34 and I live is South Texas. Also, I was in TTGP and I’m hoping to see a lot of those ladies join me.

  • Hi there. I tested a bit early, faint positive last Monday. Based on LMP I'm due 4/3 also! Though, I ovulate early, so that may change. I'm 34 (35 on Thurs) in Virginia. This is my 2nd pregnancy, DD born 12/16. Nice to meet you!

    Lurker!

    @mercury94 what digital test did you use? You turned one at 11 DPO right? I only have FRERs and don’t trust them anymore so want to be able to confirm on a digital if I ever see a second line. 
    mercury94
  • @bows22 I turned at First Response digital at 11 dpo. It is supposed to detect HCG at 25. Clear Blue detects at 50. 

    Also, girl, I was so excited to see you post here, but then I remembered you’re 5 dpo. Hoping to see you here soon.

    @mercury94 I was afraid someone would be tricked! Thank you! Going to order some now.

    I’m hoping @puppylove8910 ‘s morning HIO method works out for me too and that I will be back here with a real post next week!

  • How’s everyone doing so far? Anyone have a good story of how you told your SO?

  • @mercury94 pretty good here so far...except stressing until I get my second beta! No real symptoms yet, aside from maybe having to pee more often! How are you doing? DH and I just looked at the test together and said...well, I think that’s a line! 🤷🏼‍♀️

  • @bluetickgal I’m glad YH was with you. That’s basically what I did when we found out about DS. I swore that this time I would set DH up for his “Hi, pregnant, I’m Dad” joke, but it was 2 a.m. when I took the first test, so oops.

    I’m mostly okay. Definitely peeing all the time. A little more nausea than I was expecting this early, but it’s manageable. Just a bit unpleasant. Also, I gave up caffeine because I’m insane and I can’t trust myself to stick to the amount recommended once I start drinking it.  Now I’m exhausted all the time.

  • My story is similar to yours as well :) i tester positive two days after you did. I don’t have any symptoms except for some gas lol (tmi sorry). So you’re not alone :)

  • @anxious35 @sanpelligrino With my first, I had almost no symptoms before 6 or 7 weeks. It’s not uncommon. Try not to worry too much. I know the wait for that first sonogram is so hard. Mine’s not until 8/22. It’s so far away.

  • Is anyone else experiencing nausea? I’m already drinking ginger tea... 🤢
    brookert615
  • @ejoseph16 ; I've had a bit of nausea but it's been manageable. I suspect it'll get worse in the coming weeks. The fatigue has really been what's knocking me on my ass so far.







    ejoseph16
  • @littleredm yeah today I had both severe nausea and fatigue. Ugh. 
  • @ejoseph16 yuck! :s I hope you feel better soon! The ginger tea should help! I've also heard eating small meals throughout the day help too!
