    When will you tell family?: Planning to make it a Thanksgiving surprise.

    Cravings?: Anything spicy. I guess jalapenos and hot sauce will be my friends for a bit.
    Will you do a FB announcement?: If I do one it'll be very obscure and I don't think anyone pays enough attention to my FB to even notice it.
    Anything else you want to share? When my kids act like heathens I wonder what on earth I'm getting myself into with a 3rd kid! But we are excited anyway!

    I just got my BFP today!

    Name/age: Sarah, 23
    DH name/age: Austin, 22
    How many kids do you have now?: Michael, 3.5 years old (March 2010 baby)
    More babies in the future?: I'd like three!
    Birth plan?: Hoping for a VBAC
    When will you tell family?: My mom, dad, and step-mom both know, along with some few close friends, I'll tell everyone else closer to or in the second trimester.
    Any symptoms yet?: Oh boy do I! Saturday (6 DPO) my nipples started itching and I began getting shooting pain in my breasts and cramps began. Sunday (7 DPO) I began to have sharp cramps and was very fatigued, along with a sore throat. Monday (8 DPO) I tested BFN, went for a run and when I got back I had (tmi alert) a glob of beige colored cm in my undies. I also began to have heavier cramps. Here's the kicker..I started getting COLOSTRUM come out of my breasts. That's when I knew. Granted I had to give them a hard squeeze, but still! Then today, Tuesday (9 DPO) I had pink tinged cm after a night of VERY restless sleep. I tested with a .99 cent cheapie and BFN. I had waves of nausea all day and picked up a box of FRER. I didn't think I'd use them until the weekend, but I couldn't help myself lol. I even drank a huge Gatorade and peed 3 times within the hour prior to testing, and the BFP still came up within a minute!!
    Cravings?: None so far. My stomach isn't interested in food at the moment. I get waves of nausea and then go straight to extreme hunger, but still, nothing sounds good.
    Will you do a FB announcement?: Most likely, but much later on.
    Anything else you want to share?: Nope! Other than I am very excited to be here. We were NTNP for two months, then active trying for three, so I'm excited I'm pregnant now.

    Name/age: Kristie, 28
    DH name/age: Shane, 32
    How many kids do you have now?: I have two, a girl and a boy.
    More babies in the future?: Just this one.
    Birth plan?: Hoping for a natural hospital birth. Other 2 births were inductions with epidurals and then pp hemorrhaging. :-\
    When will you tell family?: Maybe after my first ultrasound which will be on 6wks 6 days.
    Any symptoms yet?: The only thing that I *might* be feeling relating to pregnancy is fatigue. I'm an AWFUL insomniac but I've been tired a lot the past 2 days. I'm 4wks 1 day right.
    Cravings?: No.
    Will you do a FB announcement?: I'll just post the ultrasound photo, nothing fancy.
    Anything else you want to share?: I'm not shouting it from the rooftops this time around because my bestie just had her first child, and my cousin is having her second - (but opposite gender than her first). So I'm letting them enjoy the spotlight and I'm going to be more low key. Prob no weekly FB belly pics like the last 2 times lol. I just want to enjoy it all because I expect this to be my final pregnancy (as long as it sticks). I'm hoping DH will get snipped afterward. He says he will, but I'll believe it when we get the doctor bill haha.
