    @cait32 this is a good thing to remember— I can advocate for myself. I’m in therapy for anxiety- thank god!- and will talk it over with my therapist whether early testing is something I should advocate for in regards to my mental health. 

    Bummer that you’re not able to take them up on the early testing, yourself!!

  • Hello! 
    Due date? 10/10/21 according to LMP

    How did you find out? I was at work on Friday and my principal stood in the doorway and I caught a big whiff of the dog treat he was holding in his hand. I took a test on Tuesday after I was a few days late.

    Tell us about yourself (age, location, Other children/pets?Job? Things you like to do? Spouse/partner?) I will be 35 on Sunday, live in NY. I have 2 DS, Dec 17 and Jun 19. I have 2 shih tzus that will be 8 in March. DH and I have been married since Oct '16. 

    How are you feeling? (First appointment? Any symptoms? Emotionally?) I'm overwhelmed with the reality of 3 kids, but very excited to be welcoming our last little one to the family!

    Pregnancy after loss can be so hard! I've had four miscarriages and am so paranoid every time I wipe, cramp, move too fast. Ugh I wish we could just enjoy the pregnancies. Prayers for some sticky little babes for us! 💕

  • @Twindling we are EDD twins 💕 sorry to hear of your recent loss, sending you all the healthy vibes. Also I definitely believe in little signs and the Remembrance Day is very interesting and I don’t think coincidental. I was in the April 2018 BMB and still have a strong relationship with those mommas as well. I’m excited to get to know this group more. Welcome momma!

  • @Twindling Iowan here! 👏🏻👏🏻 And another momma who’s experienced a recent loss. There are so many of us in this group. I’m so sorry for your loss. Thinking positive thoughts for you!

    @Cait32 Thanks, I have changed it. I actually changed it prior to posting but I guess it didn't work. Crossing my fingers that it works now.

    Still didn't work. Ugh.
  • @knottieadf3ba1d38e82620 I think you have to log out and log back in for it to work!
  • Due date? 10/17

    How did you find out? I was super sick last Thursday and thought I had food poisoning. But we've been TTC for a few months so I figured I'd take a test to rule it out and it was positive. 

    Tell us about yourself (age, location, Other children/pets?Job? Things you like to do? Spouse/partner?) 30, live in NE Ohio with DH, DS 18 mos, and our dog. We enjoy hiking, camping and travelling. I'm a big reader and crafter and work in HR. 

    How are you feeling? (First appointment? Any symptoms? Emotionally?) Pretty good. Very tired and bloated. Not as sick as I was last Thursday but still having a lot of naseua. Emotionally very excited! First US is 3/11 when I'm 8 weeks.

  • @heatherdubrow Thanks for the suggestion. I have tried that several times and it did not work. The name is changed on my overall profile but not on the community one. I also tried to change it on the knot which was recommended based on my google searches. I have reached out to customer service.

  • Due date? 10/10 based on LMP. 

    How did you find out?  I was feeling a bit off and realized my period was a day late - I’m never late - so I took a HPT.  Then I took about 6 more because I couldn’t believe it 

    Tell us about yourself (age, location, Other children/pets?Job? Things you like to do? Spouse/partner?).  

    I’m 38 and we currently live in Northern CA.  I’m a SAHM to 5 daughters - 12, 9, 4, 4 and 2.  We also have two grumpy cats.  I love to hike, snowshoe, paddle board, camp.  My husband is in the military, so we move pretty often, but love exploring new places. 

    How are you feeling? (First appointment? Any symptoms? Emotionally?).  Still in shock.  This baby was a happy surprise.  Feeling tired, but other than that not bad.  I tend to get pretty sick during 1st trimester so I’m happy to be feeling good so far.

  • Hey Everyone! Excited to be here!

    Due date: October 10th

    How did I find out: I've been seeing a fertility specialist for PCOS and I was on Letrozole. With Ovulation Medication, timing is everything so I had a set date to take a pregnancy test. We were over joyed when that positive sign showed!

    About myself: I am 41 (shoutout to over 40 moms!) and I live in central Florida. I have one 5 year old daughter. My husband is in IT and we've been married for 13 years.

    How am I feeling: Some days I feel a bit sick but it goes away quickly. Other than that, just very excited!

  • Hi all! 

    Due date 10/2 or 10/4 depending on which app I’m listening to. I have an ultrasound scheduled with my RE on Friday to confirm so I’m assuming they’ll give me a date at that point. 

    How I found out: Last spring I got a physical because we wanted to start ttc with #2. Found out I had some cardiac stuff going on so we decided to wait to get that resolved first. We had a surprise spontaneous pregnancy over the summer that ended in a miscarriage at 11 weeks at the end of August. (Surprise because we tried for over 2 years to have our daughter and we ended up seeing an RE for help). Went on BC after that to ensure we could get the cardiac stuff resolved. Resolved in December and went off BC just after Christmas. My period was supposed to be starting the next day and it just didn’t feel like it so I took a test just for kicks and it was positive! To say we were surprised is an understatement. Like I said, it took us 2 years and medication to get pregnant with my daughter. 

    About me: I’m 35. I live in CT with my 2yo daughter and my husband. I am a SAHP for the moment. I planned to only take a year off and then when I was getting ready to start looking for a job again the pandemic happened and it made more sense for me to keep staying home.  I was on the January 2019 board for my daughter - I think I remember a couple of you from there.  

    How I feel: I’m feeling pretty good. Tired, tender boobs, gotta pee all the time. But otherwise good.

  • @DHarpster hi momma. I’m sorry to hear you are struggling with this news. I think this can be more common that people talk about. My first was a wooops and we had just talked about not wanting to have kids yet and BOOM a week later I realized I was 8 weeks pregnant. The shock factor can have all kinds of thoughts and feelings. It’s okay to feel what you are feeling. Give yourself some time. Glad you came here we are all a great sounding board of support ❤️

  • Hi!

    Due date? Oct. 12, tentatively

    How did you find out? Missed my period by a few days, started having breast tenderness and slight queasiness. We had a long weekend trip planned, and it seemed irresponsible to ignore the symptoms just so I could drink with my husband. Bought a test, woke up early the next day, and boom. Took the other test in the box that afternoon to make sure.

    Tell us about yourself (age, location, Other children/pets?Job? Things you like to do? Spouse/partner?) 34, married, first timer

    How are you feeling? (First appointment? Any symptoms? Emotionally?) Like I said this is my first time being pregnant, so everything feels kind of unreal. Symptoms are minor and intermittent, mostly bloating and tiredness. The worst thing so far is low abdominal pain, not quite like a cramp but kinda sorta, coupled with increased discharge that has me worrying that it's already over multiple times an hour. Hope my preliminary visit with my primary care doc tomorrow can clear up some fears and make things feel more concrete.

  • Hi @prpl11butterfly! I think we might've both been in Sept'18 BMB for a brief minute? There are unfortunately a lot of us PGAL here this month. FX for a healthy sticky baby, born *not* on your DD's birthday. :)

  • @prpl11butterfly I haven't stalked your post history yet, but your handle is familiar to me...I was on TTGP in summer/fall 2016 and then a July17 BMB and a Jan19 BMB...but if you were on TTGP, I probably know you from there even though I was just lurking from my BMB. I have a special place in my heart for folks in TTGP since that's where I started (feels like a looong time ago).

  • Yes @Kabazaba! That's 100% accurate. FX that you have a good and sticky one too!

    @cait32 I was in TTGP from Mar 18 to Feb 19 so stalking is likely how I seem familiar.

  • Hi!

    I am a 44 year old mom to 3.5yr old twin boys and I just did a frozen embryo transfer and got a HPT BFP yesterday. I am soooo excited to make my family bigger, though I do with my children were a little closer in age. I am happy to be a part of this group and happy to chat or swap advice!
