  • @kpearse99 thank you!! I feel so awful that I ghosted TTGP (and TFAS in particular) but posting every day was making me nutty. I’m lurking all the time and I’m cheering you on!!

    hahaha kidding! congrats girl, I’m so happy for you!
  • So excited for you @kmalls @NamelessAria !
    You’re welcome to join us in September or wait for October :) always nice to have some more TTGP-ers!
  • @NamelessAria hey lady! So glad to see you here! Congratulations!! 

    I’m hanging in October even though I’ll have an RCS in late September. Bringing up the rear in a BMB is the worst, lol. 
  • @dolewhipper congrats on the BFP! Ugh I’m so sorry about the ectopic, that must have been scary. I hate how losses turn the joy of a BFP so quickly into anxiety, but hopefully this is your rainbow ❤️
  • @NamelessAria - I came here to stalk you because I hadn't seen you in the dailies or announce in the TTGP Grad Announcements thread, so I had a feeling I'd find you here. Congrats!! I'm so excited for you!
    Me: 37 / DH: 41
    Due with baby #2: Feb 2022

  • @ttcbabyodo thank you! I thought about posting in the announcement thread but decided that maybe I haven't really been around long enough and active enough. I don't want to be the drive by Peggy.

    @kmalls It was...informative. I did get blood taken for hcg & progesterone (another one on wednesday) and they don't want me to get my u/s until Monday when I'm 5w; they want to be sure they can see a sac. So I'm just a ball of nerves until I see that precious little bubble in my uterus where it belongs. 

    In the meantime I get to freak out about any tinge or twinge of pain, and I need to go to the ER if I experience any kind of pain or bleeding (that was the only symptom I had with my last ectopic). SO THAT'S SO FUN. I don't wish ectopics on anyone. They're absolutely the worst.

    @zuuls_mom thank you, love! I see you have a new little one-- Congrats are in order for you too! <3 

    Edit because words and dates are hard.
  • @dolewhipper oof yeah I was wondering if they’d do an ultrasound this early, I feel like there’s not much to see at this point. So glad they scheduled one for Monday, though, I can’t even imagine the anxiety you have! Which is definitely not made any better by orders to head to the ER with any pain or bleeding, talk about being on high alert for ANY twinge. Ughhh. And I don’t know about you but I pee about 78 times a day just to check for spotting, so...that’s fun :#
  • @kmalls Yea, I just keep telling myself, "Today, I am pregnant," and keep it at that. 

    I've also been peeing maybe 77 times a day and looking at the TP...solidarity. But I more so have to because I've increased my water intake. I am HORRIBLE at drinking water, and last pregnancy I had low fluid and I refuse to not drink 100oz a day this time around. (I will accept any good ideas on how I can actually track and drink that much!)
  • This morning I got a positive after three negative tests. I have been jittery since 7:30AM. Part of me is happy about having a second child. The other part is worried that I won't be able to love two children. DD is almost 18 months, she is amazing with other babies so she will be the best big sister.

    Maybe what I'm feeling is surreal.

    @Smelh324 congrats! We have kids of very similar ages: DS is turning 5 in two weeks, and DD1 turned 3 in October (then DD2 is almost 2). There’s a whole lotta attitude in your house, I’m sure! 

    @KaileyBri having kids close together is nuts, but awesome! Our first three kids are 18 months apart each. You got this! 
  • @kmalls thanks! Yes yours are very close to my littles, but you snuck an extra one in there! and lol LOTS of sass. We are over achievers and have some names picked out, turns out our fave ones are all girl names. Still trying to decide what three girls in a row might look like haha but luckily we don't get to pick so we'll just deal with whatever comes!
  • *lurky loo* 

    @dolewhipper Ahhhhhh!!! So freakin’ thrilled for you lady!!!! I have everything crossed that this will be your little rainbow!! 
  • @smg2302 Welcome and congrats!! Nice big gap between 2 and 3 :) That sounds nice.
  • Also, what kind of a rain dance do we have to do to get this board posted like all the other months :|  Pregnancy is all waiting, do we really have to add this annoying wait to the list lol.
  • Thanks @Smelh324! I am hoping the gap means that they are more independent this time around.

  • Hi everyone! We got a positive test about a week ago I think? EDD is October 7... 5 days after my brother's wedding. Whoops. Not very good planning on our part I guess, haha. 

    We have a 3 year old and a 15 month old, both boys. Fingers crossed for a girl! But if it's another boy, great! He's due 6 days before his brother's 2nd birthday, so yeah - all the clothes we had for him are probably perfectly sized for each season.  :D
  • @smg2302 were you in the F15 BMB? Your handle is super familiar. 
  • @kmalls yes I was! That feels like such a long time ago.

  • Here's to hoping they add the Ocrober 2020 BMB to the app list soon. My app is being weird about me trying to access October 2020 from the link.
