I would love to be in this room but I'm not 100% sure what is going on this cycle so we shall see
I'm due January 5th Looking forward to meeting everyone!
That's my anniversary lol it's good to meet you! And congrats on your BFP!!
Thank you! You too! Will it be your first wedding anniversary?
Yess and our baby is due that week too!
That's exciting! How cool would it be if it was born on your anniversary?
That would be pretty awesome to me
You need to make a ticker now!
I am SO hoping for a pre - January 1st baby. I have a DS born in 2012, and having a 2013 baby would mean they go to school in back to back school years. And since I am a SAHM it would mean one less year off of work. For 5 little days it would really suck with the amount of money it would save us. But I guess you can't force these things hehe.
When is your ultrasound?
Hehe, if I lived in the USA I would be hoping for the tax break too! I am Canadian, and each kid is like a 200 dollar tax credit if that... instead they give you a monthly benefit depending on your income, and it starts as soon as the kid is born.
But our school year starts at age 4, and goes by birth year. So its a big savings on whether I go back to work a year earlier or don't have to pay for daycare for a year... for five days. We were trying for a 2013 baby, but I ovulated late this cycle. So hopefully I can either go early! For 5 days it seems ridiculous to think hehe. But I will probably give birth January 1st hehe.
I haven't made an appointment yet... I have to go to my family practitioner and then get a referral to an OB. Usually it doesn't take that long hehe. I'll let you know when I have one booked
So, I went to my first trimester class that the OBGYN office holds to tide you over until your 7-9week appt... well, most of it I already knew from reading these forums/researching online, but I brought DH with me so hopefully he learned something too She did NOT put "cramps" in the list of "normal symptoms", and said to report them ANY TIME they happened, even if it's without spotting... so, that naturally made me completely paranoid, and my left side had a dull ache from the end of the class when I asked her until I went to bed... and then some more when I woke up. And at work. <.< I swear it's mostly in my head, and it's not PAINFUL, I can just tell that there is something there. I have not had one drop of spotting, let alone bleeding, and the cramps/twinges/weird feelings are usually on the left, but can be all over or on the right to some degree too. I really hope I don't have an ectopic, it's really early along so wouldn't be excruciating yet, but cramps ARE NORMAL dangit, especially for first pregnancies - stuff has to move around and stretch out for my body's first time, and nurses need to not make me paranoid. >:/
Wow, so stressful. I wouldn't listen to them at all. I've had cramps with all of my pregnancies early on. And I know other women that do as well. At this stage if something was wrong, they couldn't do anything to stop it anyway. So I don't get making people paranoid for no reason. I understand later in the pregnancy when it can be preventable. My doctor always told me that if it happens when you are doing something specific, then to stop doing that.
I am sure everything is ok. May 20th isn't that far away!
Mind if I crash the party?
I'm due 01/09/14.
Congratulations! And Welcome!
I think I am joining you, but I am still in a little bit on denial. I know my cycle is longer this time since I should have missed my O, due to being out of town, but I think I got a BFP today. I am going to test again first thing in the morning and have to think of a way to tell my DH......truth be told I will probably test again today.
Good luck! With my last DS, I ovulated late too! Fingers crossed for you!
Hi I should probably join you January ladies since I'm due Dec. 31st and have never gone early, lol. In fact, I have two Jan. 8th girls! So, here I am Hopefully we'll get flooded with ladies soon. Congrats to everyone and a H&H 9 months
