Gender Guess - He says there is no doubt in his mind it's a girl. I don't have any feelings one way or another right now, but at my work, EVERY girl that has gotten pregnant in the past 8 years (for every pregnancy) it has been a boy. Weird!
Have you told anyone yet - We told my mom and Jason's parents/brother last night. Waiting longer to tell others.
Symptom list - Sort of sore boobs, SLIGHT cramps at first, tired, peeing quite a bit
Any names picked out - We're talking about it! We both seem to agree on the same names, but aren't really saying what they are until we find out if it's boy/girl
What's your TTC Story - I received a few abnormal paps and it took forever for the doctors to figure out what was wrong (no HPV). I had high grade dysplasia but they couldn't FIND it when doing the colposcopy. Finally figured it out, had a LEEP procedure and also a cold knife cone to remove the pre-cancerous cells. Because of that my doctor has been on us about having kids sooner rather than later. We kept waiting, feeling like we weren't ready yet. We wanted to get a house first and some other stuff. Well, we got BFP on 8/28 and closed on our house yesterday 8/31. We weren't TTC and were totally shocked with the BFP but I guess it was just supposed to happen for us. I will be checked at 12 week appt for cervical length to make sure I don't need a preventative cerclage. Doc said there is a little concern for preterm labor with my cervical length so she's doing some checks and ultrasounds but not until 12 weeks.
Anything else you'd like to add - I was really surprised about the BFP but couldn't be more thrilled!! I'm anxiously waiting for our first appt at 8 weeks but we don't get an ultrasound then so I'm not sure WHEN this will really start to feel real. So glad you other ladies are here and I hope we can support each other through the coming months. So excited for you all!
