Congrats!! I'm not sure where the DDC is, but you might be the only one so far b/c Jan 1st due date has an O date of April 10th-ish which means only 11 DPO today.  I would imagine more BFP's will show up in the next week.  :)

Thanks!  I know I'm really early...  3 days after DTD, I just *knew* so I tested before I even missed AF.  My EDD is 1/1/2012 (based on ovulation), so I just might be the first.  I'm so excited!  love.gif

I peeked at the other DDCs, and it looks like they "open" them on the 1st of each month.  So I'm guessing we have 6 more days to wait.  I'm just so excited...!  I want to talk about it here, since we aren't really telling everyone yet.

Thank you for this thread! I was wondering where the Jan 2012 club was! Well, I wanted to lurk anyway, I am testing the first week in May. I suppose we will survive until then! Congrats ladies!

I PMed a mod and they said that the January ddc would be up shortly.  They did post a "ddc closing" thread in the January 11 DDC about an hour ago.

I'll be here too. My due date is 1/4. I also tested waaay early and just saw the faintest second line. A few days later I tested again and there was a second line which appeared a little more so than the first but still very faint.

I took, well, let's just say an embarrassing number of tests ;)  I'm a POAS-aholic.  And I got a bfp at 6 or 7dpo so I have spent a lot of time wondering if there is more than one baby in there... first appointment is may 17th so I won't know until then.  I am leaning towards one very eager and healthy babe though, I don't feel more tired or sick or anything than my other pregnancies.  We'll see!

I can totally relate.  I started POAS on 9 DPO, which is when I got my BFP for my first.  I didn't even see a faint line until it was just about dry, so I thought it might be an evap line.  I figured I'd wait another few days, but tested again the next morning.  shy.gif  And peed on it too much.  I got a defninte, but faint, line on that one, but was worried I had screwed it up.  So I squeezed out a bit more and tested again.  That one was a BFP I felt comfortable with.  

 

And then I took another one a few days ago.  Just because.  lol.gif

 

So, yeah.  I can empathize!

so that's 4 total?  yeah.  I am definitely not telling how many I took orngtongue.gif

 

my POAS tip - always pee in a cup.  that way if you mess up a test you can take another one without needing to pee again.

I'm looking for the board too! I found out this past Tuesday that I'm due January 6th (exactly 3 months later than my last due date). This was my first ovulation after a miscarriage at 9 weeks! We weren't even "trying" but here we are, pregnant again! joy.gif This is already a different pregnancy--having lots of symptoms and no bleeding whatsoever! I knew from 5 dpo that something was up and by 8dpo for sure.

Yeah, only 4.  I took a bunch more my first time.  And we've had an early m/c before, so I'm likely to test again before my first MW appointment on 5/9.

 

Kindermama - you have symptoms already?  I've had a few crampy uterus twinges, and my boobs are a bit sensitive (though nothing like the first time, but I think DS killed almost all sensation in them by being a barracuda nurser), but nothing else.  Of course, I'm only 5 weeks today...  But I think I was feeling nauseous by this time with my first.  I don't like early pregnancy simply because all I really have to go by is a line on a test.  I don't feel pregnant, ykwim?

the symptom that prompted me to test so early was the excessively drooly/metallic taste in my mouth that has been a symptom of all of my pregnancies.  I've also been really tired.  that's it so far.

I am so happy to see this forum as I just got by first BFP last Wednesday! I am officially 5 wks, 1 day. If I may please ask, how is your stomach feeling? I am constantly feeling little twinges (not cramping) and sometimes a band of mild pressure in my lower abdomen. Also, I feel like im already showing. I'm somewhat petite and DH and I have definately noticed a small bump that wasn't there before. I don't know how this is possible since i'm still in cell and implant stage of development? Is any one experiencing anything similar? Since this is my first, I feel like I am over examining every possible thing:)

I am waiting for the Jan DDC thread, too.

 

I got my BFP this week and I'm 4weeks or so (due 1/8, I think). I am tired, have tender bb's and a decreased appetite but then when I do eat, I feel SUPER hungry.

 

This isn't my first, my kids are much older - 21 and 16 (both BF, one born at home, both born w Midwives). I'm 45, and in awe that I'm even pregnant. No help, just the old school method ;-)  Right now I'm worried about m/c (no history, but just my age) and will the bean be okay.

 

Looking forward to our journey together!

It's probably bloating/gas.  Progesterone causes the digestive system to slow down and that can cause constipation and bloating.  You're right, at this stage the baby is still an embryo, teeny tiny, and your uterus won't poke out above your pubic bone for another 7 weeks or so (for a first time mom)

Big Fat Positive.  Of course, my terribly crude mind always substitutes another "F" word...  lol.gif

 

Michelle0522 - I'm bloated too.  My work pants are already tight.  Last time I blew up like a baloon almost right away.  I have a short torso, so everything's a bit crammed in there to start with.  Add a growing uterus... And there's nowhere to go but straight out.

I was wondering the same thing this morning, since January 2011 was up on 4/28/10.  Maybe they forgot us.  greensad.gif

I think that they meant to open it last night (the post about closing the Jan 11 DDC said it would close in 48 hours, and that went up friday night).  The mods are volunteers, someone probably just hasn't gotten to it yet.  Just hang tight :)
