    Due date? I believe about June 9th. 

     How’d you find out? I took a pregnancy test on a whim to see just in case (I had a negative a couple weeks before) and saw a faint line! Several tests and a few days later, they’re all positive and getting darker. 

     Other children/pets? A one year old Siberian Husky. 

     Job? Server, but got a new job as an assistant video editor the same day as my BFP(!) 

    Things you like to do? Read, watch documentaries, take my dog to the park, go out to eat and more! 

     Spouse/partner? Yes, my husband and I got married in a tiny ceremony on 12/20/20. We have a bigger ceremony/reception just around the corner (11/14/21). 

     First appointment? 11/22, although I may ask to go in sooner. 

     Any symptoms? Excessively sweaty pits, some digestion issues, and most recently, brief waves of nausea. 

     Great to meet you all!
  • @mrsbaker89 I’m a police officer too! I’m already struggling with trying to figure out how to navigate my first pregnancy and still working the road. We should chat some time! 
  • @mfd2022 @mrsbaker89 my husband is too! He has not been pregnant so he probably wouldn’t have much to add 🤣
  • @mrsbaker89 @mfd2022 *lurking from April* Me three! Please tell me what I am supposed to do with my duty belt. I am now at the loosest possible setting and even if I get a bigger size I'm not quite sure where it's supposed to go from here.
  • @mfd2022 @dinomeetsjedi So it just depends on what your department will allow. Some see it as a liability to have pregnant officers on the street. We all have our own comfort levels so I say work it until you that point and then go light duty. The second trimester i’m going light duty with a desk job.

  • @newadventures2022 You and I have the same due date and ultrasound appointment date!
  • @romeoandjuliet146 so exciting! I’m estimating mine, but since it was IVF maybe that date will be updated. Can’t wait for ultrasound. It was going to be tomorrow, but the husband couldn’t make it. I almost just left him behind for an earlier peak, but I’m glad we will be doing it together, even if I have to wait a few extra days. Hope yours goes well on the 18th!!
  • @kaceyallan I love Saskatoon! ❤️
  • *lurking from May*

    @knottie and @ermsmcg just an FYI that you can have both tuna and deli meat. Tuna is just a limited quantity (my OB said no more than 1 can a week) and you can heat up the deli meat before eating it. It’s definitely not the same as cold cuts, but it’s better than nothing 😆

    Hi All!!

    Due date? June 20th :smile:

    How’d you find out?  I had a BFP on Sunday the 10th. I didn't think it'd actually happen so I didn't test until I was late

    Other children/pets? DD Zoey would be 9 on the 17th of October, she passed from cancer when she was 5. I have her dog Juno, a weim/pit mix, who is 3 and my other pup Hitch the Great Dane who is two. 

    Job? I am a research and development test engineer for a manufacturing company. I absolutely love my job, but know I'm going to have issues once I get bigger. 
    Things you like to do?  Read, listen to records and go to concerts. I deep sea fish and hunt deer. I love to hike and be outside. Ski, but can't this season. 

    Spouse/partner? My boyfriend and I have been together for 3 years. We were told by a fertility specialist that we'd never have kids without IVF because his sperm is bad, he's not Zoey's father. Well apparently it fixed itself because here I am. 

    First appointment?  Telemed visit on Monday

    Any symptoms? freaking tired, boobs hurting and just pulling/cramping 

    I MISS COFFEE but I am excited to be here. Also fighting a head cold so that makes the start of this journey epically great.
