Hi,

I don't know where the FF board is but I also just received a BFP. I'm not sure about all the lingo but here goes:

Meels 40, no drugs/nothing, been trying for over 3 years, have a wonderful DH, BFP 3/14/05, Due 11/20/05

Now my question...are you all waiting 3 months to tell people about being preggo? Are any of you shocked? It's still so new that I am still in shock after trying SO LONG. I now have a new appreciation for women/couples that wait after the 1st trimester to tell anyone. But, I know there's the reality of miscarriage. We were weeks away from adopting so this totally blew us away.

Well, I appreciate this board being here,
meels
