I got my BFP on Saturday and the lines keep getting darker, so I think this is the real deal!
I am tentatively due on April 19th, and my first OB visit is on Monday. I'm a little scared that they won't see anything on the u/s that early, but I'm happy to have a proactive OB anyway.
I have a three and a half year old little boy who insists his name is "Batben". We suffered a miscarriage before him, and he was actually a giant surprise - I found out I was pregnant when I was six months along! I'd actually just run a half marathon and been the matron of honor in my BFF's wedding the weekend before. It was the sweetest surprise ever. Batben was born with a midwife in a birthing cabin in Tennessee. She has since retired and we are still deciding if we want to go that route with this baby. I wanted to see an OB for medical visits either way, since I like interventions like ultrasounds and beta testing to soothe my worried mama brain!
Batben insists that he is getting a baby sister and refuses to admit there is even another option. His best buddy from preschool got a baby sister about six months ago, and he really ramped up the begging then. We'd been TTC for a year and a half with no luck before our BFP.
Nice to "meet" you all and I am psyched to get to know more about you on this journey!
