3weeks and 4days
Well, I got a BFP today... It was faint but definately there!!!
I knew at the beginning of this cycle that I would... I don't know why. We discussed TTC last cycle as we really wanted baby #4 to be a December baby, but for some reason I just knew we needed to wait until this cycle cos we'd have more luck with a New Years baby... I don't know why.
I have had awful symptoms for at least the last week or so... Feeling sick, tired (I now have to nap during the day), sore boobs, spots, tender and bloated stomach... The whole lot, even down to heartburn, constantly needing the loo, feeling like I've got a stuffed nose, over-eating and leg cramps and sore back.
I have never had a BFP this early... So am quite nervous, especially as it's only 12DPO and the test was faint. And especially considering my history of MC. But I just knew the last month or so that we are meant to have a December 2005 baby. Beyond a shadow of a doubt. And I knew we'd get our wish too.
So today I have been playing on a ton of websites about pregnancy! I did this online pregnancy predictor thingie at http://www.pregnancyandbaby.com/read/articles/736.htm which said;
The day you deliver, outside will be foggy. Your baby will arrive in the evening.
After a labor lasting approximately 7 hours, your child, a girl, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 8 pounds, 11 ounces, and will be 21 inches long. This child will have green eyes and be almost bald.
It did make me laugh out loud. That'd be the longest labour I've ever had! I'd like a girl but not overly bothered and am leaning more towards feeling Boy vibes this time around (although with the boys I felt girl vibes so who knows!). And it'd be very strange if our baby had green eyes, as noone in either of our families has green eyes so far as I'm aware!
I also did one sex predictor thingie which was spot on for all the boys but again predicted a girl this time around...
We don't plan on finding out though. I want to be the one to look at our Christmas miracles "bits" and announce what sex we've got!
Our current plans regarding the labour and birth are to go largely unassisted, with just a midwife present in the case of an emergency... Although I want no examinations, and I don't want any help. I want a natural birth, between just me and Martin. Not to say that I don't want others present. I am going to have a home water birth, Martin will be in the pool with me. MIL, and hopefully my Mum will be there. The boys will obviousely be present in the house (upstairs with FIL)... Might even let me little sister be there if she really wants! Full house, woohoo!
The only thing that is important to me is that I am in control of my body for once. I want to birth my baby, naturally... And if I'm allowed I want to catch him/her too...
However, I am high risk... So no-one will agree with this decision... But that won't stop me. If they don't agree they won't be invited. Simple. I planned homebirths with my 3 DSs and was always foiled at the end... I'm not letting them do that too me this time!
Anyway... I really wanted to get a BFP for Tristan's 4th birthday tomorrow... And I did! This pregnancy has good omens all over it I reckon and I intend to enjoy every minute of it!
Next thing to think about, is when and who are we going to tell.... :shock:
