I'm in! EDD Dec 12-ish!

(partially XP from Birthing Naturally board)

I got a BFP on a FRER yesterday, but the line was faint and I always like to do at least 2 tests after my experience in 2006 (false positive on a cheep brand that later got recalled--long story) and that one was my last test, so I picked up a digital last night, took it this morning, and there it was..."pregnant." I kept it to myself yesterday, with it being April Fools Day, I didn't want people to think it was a joke, plus I hadn't told DH yet--I wanted to tell him in a fun way and I really wanted him to be the first to know. Here's what I did:

I had mentioned a while ago that I wanted to try to make cinnamon rolls (I had never made them before). I did this recipe, so I started them yesterday. This morning, after I put them in the oven, I sat next to him on the couch and said "The buns are in the oven!" He gave me a questioning look, and then said "And they're not the only buns in the oven!" and pulled the two pregnancy tests out of my pocket! It was awesome! I told him that I'm due in mid-December. His first reaction was excitement, and a compliment on my cleverness, and then he started talking about how we have to get a new car and how we won't be traveling for Christmas this year. Smile

I'm excited to join you ladies!

Congratulations. I wanted to do something like that buns in the oven thing, but I have no patience. I just blurted it out. lol.

One of the first things me and my dh talked about was not being able to travel this Christmas too. haha.

hehe...I've been on here since 2007, so the abbreviations are like second nature to me. The ones that took me the longest to figure out were AF ("aunt flo") and BD ("baby dance") :)There is a pretty exhaustive list here: http://www.pregnancy.org/article/pregnancyorgs-chat-and-bulletin-board-acronyms (though some of the ones on there are ones I've never seen used) These are not on there, though:

FRER = First Response Early Result (brand of pregnancy test)
BFP = Big Fat Positive (+ home pregnancy test)
BFN = Big Fat Negative (- home pregancy test)

Lol thanks Mrsmango, I hate feeling so lost in a forum where I like to think I know so much... being a mom of three kids and one on the way!
