Woo Hoo, I'm first!!!

I'm Jennifer. Mom to Rylee (3) and wife to Ray (7 years married, 13 years together). I'm 29 and I work full time as the payroll administrator for a conglomerate of insurance companies located across the US. My obsession is photography, so I will probably be over sharing pictures Smile

I tested Sunday, July 24th at 6:30am. Got an amazingly faint BFP! This is our second child. Our DD just turned 3 two weeks ago, so this baby is way over due for our family.

Here's a picture of the BFP.

Due date 4/4/2012 Hoping for a boy, since I've already had two girls, but my husband had a son with his first wife. He is quietly hoping for a girl, I am pretty sure. That's just too much estrogen hitting puberty at one time, in my opinion. Also, no male in his family has fathered a girl since the 1950's, so I think my chances are pretty good. Smile I have had a boy name picked out since my first pregnancy, and I told my husband while we were dating, using my name choice was a stipulation to possibly making babies with me. HAHA! Both of my girls were also C-section, without a trial of labor, and for reasons that will always bother me. REALLY hoping for a VBAC! I am living in a new area, so all new doctors, but my clinic has 4 midwives and 4 MDs.. I like what that alone tells me about their philosophy. Smile

8/22 ultrasound, just before 8 weeks

My first real OB appointment is 9/13, and I am excited Smile

Okay. I'm finally sticking my flag in a space!!

This is my second pregnancy. DD, Lyla, was born 10/6/10 and she took 2.5 years to conceive. We are surprised and ecstatic that it didn't take nearly as long this time! I had a c/s with DD due to breech presentation and am hoping for a VBAC baby this time!

DH and I are high school sweethearts, we started dating in February 1997. I have been in love with the boy since the tender age of 16!! Biggrin We have 2 boys Aidan Connor (10/10/08 ) and Gavin Benjamin (2/24/10). DS1 was conceived during a TTC break, as I was planning a mission trip out of the country. DS2 was a COMPLETE OOPS! They are the sweetest, most loving little boys ever and I couldn't imagine life without them and we are super excited about adding a third blessing to the mix! We were actually TTC this time, 1st cycle was a charm! I feel very blessed by that! We (I) are really hoping for a girl this time, but will love another little guy just the same! Looking forward to this journey with all of you other lovely Mommies! HH9M to us all!


Friday, August 26th- Beta-52; Progesterone-13.1
Wednesday, August 31st- Beta-471; Progesterone-12.5 Yahoo
Friday, September 23rd-First appointment and ultrasound at 8 weeks.
9/23 appt update - We got our first peek at our wee little babe today and its measurements were right on target at 8 weeks exactly, for an official EDD of May 4th but we are looking at a delivery date of April 25th due to repeat c-section. He wants to look at baby again on u/s in 2 weeks just to make sure everything is going well and we get past that critical 10 week point. He also said that at our appt. in 2 weeks, when I schedule my next appt. for 4 weeks later that he would do another u/s and would probably be able to tell us the gender!!!! I. LOVE.THAT.MAN!! Yahoo
Thursday, October 6-10 week u/s just to get another sneak peek at baby and make sure all is well. Have I mentioned that I LOVE my doctor?!?!

Coming soon!!


September 7, 2011- 5 weeks 5 days and still not much nausea to speak of. The only time I get nauseated is when I get really hungry. Wondering if I am going to get lucky this time or am I going to get hit by MS train in a day or two??

Got my BFP on 8/25 Smile


My name is Angel, Im 26 years old!! I am the youngest of 5 kids. I was diagnosed with PCOS officially in 2004 after my first m/c. My journey to motherhood has been a struggle but i think that helps me appreciate little things people tend to not enjoy while pregnant. I met my husband in 2007. We were introduced by my brother and werent supposed to be more than "just friends" We welcomed our first child together 10-29-09. Ive been apart of Pregnanct.org since July 2003 on and off. My November 09 mommies are a great bunch of ladies and i hope to form more friendships. I will up date this as we go!!

Aug 26: had blood work done beta at 889 and u/s showing almost nothing. Im about 3 weeks. Go back Weds for 2nd us
