smr08 ??? Not sure when it happened yet!
It's so exciting, and it makes me very happy to get to add BFP's every week. I know that all of us have been through so much to get here, and it's a time of excitement, fear, worry and the unknown.
This week is extra special to me, because a little over a year ago I logged onto MH after my second m/c, and I found this wonderful forum of women who offered so much support and encouragement. One of those women I met was Lori, and over the past year I have seen her selflessly offer herself to anyone who needed a shoulder, advice, encouragement, a place to vent, or even just friendship. Every month went by and even when I know she was feeling pain and discouragement herself she always kept her smiley face on when she felt that she was in the position to be able to offer help, experience and support to someone. I am lucky to live close enough to her that we were able to get together and spend a really wonderful day shopping and getting to know each other off the computer. (And Mikayla keeps asking, Lori, when we are going back to that candy shop so she can get the pink bubblegum coins). Every time I think about how much she deserves this, and how much it means to me on a personal level to be able to put her on this list before my daughter is born, I start bawling like a baby (I am right now) I am so glad I didn't miss this, and wish all of our BFP's this week a very happy healthy 9 months!
Every BFP I add to the list is special, and I hope it offers the encouragement needed to the women on Bridgette's list. (Maybe the end of pregnancy hormones are making me all mushy in preparation for the baby)
Steph - my prayers and thoughts are with you today, i look forward to hearing wonderful news about your little bean today!!
Lori- my prayers are with you too!!! I know you will have great numbers.
Peterjl - I'm sure your numbers will be great too!! I hope you will be able to relax soon.
Debbie- I'm as happy as a clam. I went to my ob appt on monday and after a confusion and the dr who was not my regular dr not wanting to use the doppler saying it was too early and may not find the hb. She used it and found it in a matter of seconds and i heart my little beans strong heart beating away!! Feeling very blessed. Thank you....
Morning everyone! Thank you all so much for your support and prayers. I'm wandering around my house in a fog just waiting for my dr to call, thank god i'm off today because I would be totally useless. I just pray that everything looks good.
Steph- i'm praying for you sweetie. I want you to come back with the greatest news!
Only have a second, but Emma made her entrance yesterday at 6:29 pm. She was 6 lbs 4 oz and 20.5 inches long. I was screaming for an epidural at the end but the nurse and DH talked me through everything and I did it completely drug free.
I hope everyone is doing well and lots of good news follows mine!
Congrats Aileen!!!! It's so empowering to go drug free! Glad you're both doing well :)
Lori-- Have you heard anything yet? My thoughts and prayers are with you and your little bean!
Steph-- Hope the u/s goes well, let me know..Praying for you and your bean too!
17 weeks 2 days today and I'm getting beat up from the inside..this baby is STRONG!! I have a dr's appt tomorrow, hopefully she will put in a requisition for my 20 week u/s (the only one I'll get and they won't tell me the sex, let alone give me a picture..arrgh!!) Hope all is well :)
I'm pouring so much that it's overflowing Bridgette!!! It's amazing how much different I feel now that I'm not worrying about losing this baby too. I literally feel like I can breath easier!
You girls are the best!!
Lori..I told you everything just had to be okay for us!
Congrats Aileen on your beautiful baby daughter!!! She is perfect in everyday and absolutely adorable... You are a real trooper not having any pain relief!! Well done x
Steph - Lori I can't tell you how pleased I am that you both got good news yesterday, I don't think I have prayed so hard for a long time! I have been pleading for the lives of your little babies and am thanking God that he answered my prayers.
Bam - I have just sprinkled lots of babydust into that beautiful large bucket that Lori made you and am as always cheering for your BFP!
I'm doing ok. getting anxious for my apt. I so nervous somthing isn't right. I wish my dr. would order some blood work or something. Anything to reasure me things are progressing. Uggg... 3 more weeks till my apts.
Peterjl - Try to stay positve, many of us have had spotting and its so very common in early pregnancy and the cramps are quite normal. Will keep you in my prayers!!!
Lori i'm doing good. AFter the hearing the heartbeat on monday im on cloud 9. Im 10wks today i will see if i don't pass out early again tonight and try out my home doppler. I will keep you in my prayers as well. That little beans going to grow nice, strong, and healthy!!!
Morning ladies- I hope everyone is doing well I'm so glad it's Friday! I can't wait to sleep in tomorrow. This sleepyness is starting to get to me. I hope it just means that bean is taking all my energy to grow strong, and I'm ok with that.
Steph - Ditto, so happy its friday!! yay!!! Im sure thats exactly why your so tired thanks to that growing bean!!
Bridgette - thanks you guys have been such an important part in me having this positive attitude and the support that you have all given me has meant the world to me. That is why i'm feeling so happy and positive about my baby!!
here's to filling up your bucket bridgette!! *******************************************************
Stopping by to say hello. I have my anatomy scan on Tuesday, Dec. 8. I am extremely nervous. On the up side, I have been feeling the baby move and listening to its heartbeat, but I can't help but be a little anxious. This is going to be the longest weekend since the TWW. I hope you ladies are doing great. Congrats, Aileen, on your little girl!
Morning! B/W is done, now I have to wait for the results. If I don't have them by later this afternoon I'll know on Monday. If everything is ok and my numbers are going up I think i'll put up my baby ticker, i've waited a whole year to do that!
Steph_b- I'm feeling really well, it's funny because when I wake up in the morning my bb's kill me and then after I start moving around they feel better??
Rossie- I agree with Bridgette, your positive attitude is contagious and has really helped around here!((hugs))
msteri- good luck on Tuesday!
Bridgette- empty that bucket and make room for another truckload!
Just stopping in to say hello to everyone :) It's my b-day today so I'm hoping I'll be busy. I'm just counting down the days til my u/s...5 days to go. msteri, I know where you're coming from. This will be the first u/s that we will see our baby's hb...I just can't help but be nervous. Time will fly though...
Have a great day everyone!!
ugg ladies I just need to vent a little don't mind me.....
So my Fiance was trying to quit smoking, so he went to a hyponotist with his dad and brother last night. I guess it was a load of crap and didn't seem to help any of them. So he decided he was going to try to quit on his on. He last less than a day.. I'm so discouraged. He doesn't seem to care how it effects his health, or even seem to care that it effects the babys health, or my health. He doesn't smoke in our house, or in my car. He will however smoke in his own car. I don't let him when I'm in there, but i still feel like then lingering smoke on his clothes and car aren't good for us. I wish I could get him to see the brigger picture....
Sorry I just needed to say that and if I said it to him we would get into a fight about it.
Steph, i feel for you. Thankfully neither I or BF smoke. Going cold turkey never works. He should really look into the nicotine patch or something like that, or maybe took to his physician they can probably recommend something.
Steph_b- I'm a smoker and I know how hard it is to quit. Honestly, the only time I can quit is when i'm pregnant and it doesn't really bother me. As of now my DH smokes(only in the basement)but he'll smoke for a few months and then quit for several years, it's a strange ritual of his! LOL I try to stay away from the smoke if I can, but being from a family of smokers it's kinda hard. I think your DF will get it once everything seems real(U/S) thats when mine realizes wow there is a baby in there! Good luck, but try not to stress to much over it :)
Thanks Ladies! I know I should be thankful that he does try very hard to not smoke around me. And your right, I'm not a smoker and I have no idea how ahrd it is to quit. I guess it would be like me quitting medhelp.... Thank you. I feel better I just needed to vent a bit.
Hi ladies!! Hope all is well :) I can't believe how fast time is flying! I'll be 18 weeks on Monday...holy crap!! So, I should be getting my one u/s before Christmas, which will be so nice just before the holidays!! Can't wait to see what he/she looks like :) I have to do some research to learn how to identify if it's a boy or a girl (ie. what ovaries look like on u/s) so I can guess, as they won't tell me....lol! Anyhoo, DH rented a Christmas movie for tonight, can't wait!! I'm really getting in the holiday spirit now..we're going to cut down a tree ourselves tomorrow! It's going to be an old fashioned Griswold family Christmas around here this year, lol!!
Steph_b - I know how frustrated you must feel. My DH was a heavy smoker for many years and 2 years ago he quit. Now lately he has started back up again- UGH, why after 2 years of quitting?? Your DF can look into Chantix. I have heard a lot of success stories about it and have had several co-workers who used it to quit. I have also heard a lot of good success stories about a laser treatment you can get. But it's a little pricey. Good luck and try not to be too hard on him.
Good luck on all of the b/w and u/s! I'm sure we'll continue to get good news :) Erica - so you've been "studying" a lot of anatomy? - LOL
Ok, my buckets empty again . . . I'll be back later for more :)
It's been such an unbelievabla week filled with all sorts of good news, and I hope that those ladies who are still waiting are reassured as soon as possible with all their own good news...u/s and b/w results, whatever it takes to knowe everything is going well!
emma and i are doing well so far...still settling in!
Erica- I'm doing Griswold style christmas tree today too. I can't wait!
I'm so excited I have something to be happy about this year instead of dwelling on the fact that my first EDD was 12/21. I am SO Thankful for that. And I get my U/S 12/23 and can't wait to see my babys HB
Very excited the BFP keep rolling in, soon we will be back down to 1 list. :)
