My name is Jessica, I'm 25 and my husband Daniel and I got married on May 15, 2010! We went to the Smoky Mountains for our honeymoon, and the evening we got back I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. My due date according to LMP is January 26 2011, but I tend to have longer cycles (30-35 days; I ovulate around CD20) so we will see.
This will be baby #2 for us. Our son Kieran was born June 13 2009- making him 11 months when I got my bfp! He is such a sweet little boy and I know he will be a great big brother.

I'll try to remember this space and update it! On DS's BB, I created one then totally forgot about it!
Well first of all, DH and I met when I was 17 and he was 18. We met on-line through a teen matchmaking site. Crazy, I know! But it all worked out. We dated for 6 years, while I finished high school, went to college, etc. Then for my 23rd birthday (2007) he proposed! Then in September of 2007 we thought we might be pregnant, I had a late period for the first time in my life and we were always careful. So I was terrified and finally fessed up to him after 2 or 3 days that I might be and all he said was "Well lets go get a test". No freak out, nothing! I was shocked! We weren't ready to be pregnant though! Then when the test turned negative, I was devastated!! I couldn't believe how heartbroken I was. So then in January of 2008, DH was wanting to DTD and I told him it wasn't a good time because I was ovulating to which he replied "That's okay, I want to have a baby with you!". And in October of 2008, we welcomed Liam! 7 pounds 10 ounces, 21 1/2 inches long born the day before his due date.
So now for this pregnancy: Again, we thought we had DTD just a little too close to ovulation. Test was negative. I wanted to wait until July to TTC so we'd be due in April - 6 mos after Liam's brithday and a little farther out from the holidays. DH wanted to try now, he thought it was testing fate or something to wait until a specific time. So we tried and are expecting our next LO Jan 26, 2011.
My first OB appointment is June 16, 2010. The wait is killing me! With Liam I had gone to the ER just a little after 4 weeks and it was just a corpus luteum cyst, so then the OB (I changed at 26 weeks with DS to my current one) wanted to see me at 6 weeks instead of 8 so I got to go so much sooner and I had tests/ultrasounds to confirm. I don't think my new OB has any kind of ultrasound in her office so it will be even longer until my first ultrasound!
June 14 - First appointment. Official EDD Jan 25th. Will doppler at next visit! U/S script for 11-13 weeks.
July 2 - Trip to the ER. Spotting. Baby is measuring 10 1/2 weeks, right on target. Going back to the doctor on Tuesday to recheck cervix.
July 6 - Doctors Appointment - We have a heartbeat! 155!
July 10 - Heard the baby on our home doppler! 150's!
July 19 - First ultrasound. It's a BOY!!
Aug 2 - Doctors Appointment - Labs were good, no issues! Heard baby on the doppler!
Aug 24 - Big Ultrasound! Definitely still a BOY!!
Aug 30 - Doctor's Appointment - I am getting swollen and headaches at work, they said to eat more protein so I went and got some Clif bars! Yummy! :P
Sept 7 - 20 weeks! Daddy felt kicks for the first time!
Nov 4 - GTT test - I passed!

About our family:
DH (Jason) and I met in 2002 and got married in September 2005. Our DS Nathan was born February 12, 2008. DH is a software tester, and I am a physical therapist working 3 days a week.
I had been feeling tired and very scattered for about a week. Thursday morning 5/13, I took an internet cheapie test and kept squinting at it, thinking I saw something (but nothing that would show up in a photo). I didn't have time to get a better test before or during work, so I bought one on the way home. Thursday night on 5/13 I got this:
DH didn't really believe it since it isn't that dark...even though I told him a line is a line...it is just early. We were away that weekend, so when we returned, I took another test on Monday 5/17...
Now he believed it.
EDD based on when I think I ovulated: 1/24 (DH's birthday)
Doc's EDD based on LMP: 1/28
5 weeks 5 days.......................................9 weeks............................................1 4 weeks
15 weeks + a day or 2 (2 pics)............................................. ........................17 weeks
23 weeks............................................. ....27 weeks.........................................30 weeks
heard heartbeat - 6/30/10
First u/s (due to bleeding) - 7/13/10 - all was okay!
DH felt kicks from outside - 8/31/10
Big u/s - 9/1/10 - It's A BOY!!!

Hello everyone! My name is Alysse (24) and I have been married to Colin (26) since February 19th, 2010. We found out we were pregnant shortly after the wedding, but I miscarried on March 17th, 2010 at approximately 7 weeks. After the miscarriage, I never had a period and started feeling pregnancy symptoms again. I had a blood test done on April 30th, 2010 which came back positive. On May 21st, 2010 I had an ultrasound done which confirmed the pregnancy at 7 weeks. Our due date is January 6th, 2011! I am very nervous about miscarrying again! I have had severe nausea so far and my family doctor had prescribed me diclectin. She has also taken me off work for the time being and I will be re-assessed on June 14th, 2010. I have lost about 10lbs in the past week or so and cannot wait for this nausea to be gone!!

I will start this but it's "UNDER CONSTRUCTION" until I get it finished!
No matter how this ends for me, this is the story to how I got here:
My name is Lydia and my BF Tim and I have been dating for 3 1/2 years. We were dating long distance and I made the move to NC to be with him since he works in NASCAR and isn't going to be re-locating ever! We live together & are always being asked "when are you getting married" but I have gotten over the hurt feelings and just accept the way things are for now. We are "domesticated" as I put it and I am okay with that. I don't want to bug him into getting me a ring, it's basically like being married anyway. I love him more than I have ever loved anyone and am happy as long as we are together!
I got my 1st BFP in Oct 08 and we told everyone that we were expecting a June 09 baby. I had a m/c at around 6 wks (the baby didn't grow past a yolk sac so I'm not sure how far along I really was) I was told to wait 6 weeks after the D&C to DTD again but of course I didn't wait that long. I had very light spotting after and hardly any pain so why wait. Well....in Feb 09 I got another BFP and was like UH OH.... I went in and saw a blinking HB and thought maybe this was going to be a better pg. BF and I kept this secret to ourselves with the exception of my VERY close friends since we had just had a loss. I started spotting about 2 weeks later and ended up having a natural m/c shortly after. It was very painful and tramatic... I really never want to do that again! I then had a series of bloodwork done called a multiple miscarriage panel to test for any and everything, it was around 12 tubes of blood. The results all came back normal so we got the " it's the body taking care of everything that was wrong" speech. I then went on birth control since I am obviously fertile and but can't seem to make it past the early stages. I started hitting the gym 4 days a week, did a 5K charity walk, was in great shape and really felt good about myself since I had hit an all time low & had to do something to stop the sadness.
Fast forward to April 2010:
We went to Nashville for my early birthday trip. I love birthdays and think they should be celebrated for an entire week! LOL I was on my period the week we were leaving so birthcontrol wasn't on my mind with all the plans, packing etc. Well that Sunday we were still there and I didn't start a new pack, we came home on Monday but my script is at the hospital pharmacy where I work which isn't a big chain so I couldn't get it filled until Tuesday at the earliest. I thought well I don't want to mess up my cycle so I'll be okay for a month! Boy was I wrong! May 14th all of my friends and I went out for a HUGE birthday celebration. We started with margaritas at dinner followed by cheap shots and drinks at a local country bar here where everyone was handing me drinks and we were all doing shots. The following Tuesday (May 18th) I realized my period was 3 days late so I freaked and bought a test at work. My close friend and I stood over the cup of pee frozen waiting for it to come up.... It didn't take long at all for the bright BFP...UH OH here we go again!! I called my super wonderful faithful OB who got me in that day for bloodwork to confirm the pregnancy. We have not told many people & have yet to announce on FB!
Our Nashville trip, I LOVE this picture. BF doesn't usually do cowboy hats... I thought it was cute!!
Very Faint but the only home test I took!!
6 week blurb
8 week bean
13 week baby!!
16 week stubborn baby boy!!
18wk4day funny baby boy!!
5/18/10 BFP Bloodwork and Urine Test to confirm pregnancy HCG 311 Progesterone 26
5/20/10 My actual birthday I have more bloodwork with HCG 596 a good 48 hr increase
5/25/10 Bloodwork HCG 5202
5/27/10 Light spotting, call into work, freak out all day
5/28/10 U/S that shows sac and nothing much else, too early for HB
5/29/10 More light spotting early morning only
6/1/10 Scheduled U/S at my OBGYN find a heartbeat and see it as a small blob on the screen
6/14/10 Light spotting early morning
6/15/10 New OB appt at Dr, U/S, Baby measures 8wk3days with a strong heartbeat
7/12/10 Wake up with light RED spotting but have a Dr appt that afternoon. Cervix check & HB heard via doppler MD says not to worry too much...yeah right
7/14/10 More light spotting early morning
7/15/10 NT scan! Bloodwork with an U/S the bean actually looks like a BABY! We woke him up and saw him bouncing around in there. I was 12wk4days but baby measured 13 weeks with a strong HB of 171! The early gender prediction is boy but we will see....
7/26/10 Every 2 week cervix check. Heard the HB via doppler everything sounds/feels/looks good so far. I need to get a doppler!!
8/9/10 U/S to measure cervix length 4.5 YAY!! Saw the baby but he would not behave, rolled over sleeping on his tummy so we saw his back and the back of his head. He kicked and punched some when the u/s tech pushed on him but for the most part was not having any part of it! We were able to confirm he is a BOY!! HB was 165.
8/23/10 BIG U/S: He was so funny and had us cracking up! All of the important organs and stuff measured right on mark. He is still measuring 3 days ahead still but that's fine with me.My cervix is now 7.1 which is really, really good! Once he rolled over he started dancing with his hands behind his head and could not keep his hand off his pee pee. Typical Boy! ROFL His HB was 152 and weight was 6oz. I am so excited to finally feel a bond with this little guy! We even agree on a name now which makes me so happy!
9/13/10 Finally had my "baby" dream lastnight! I went into a Dr appt with my mom and then woke up in the hospital with a c-section cut and a little baby boy! I was totally knocked out for the labor part and didn't remember it at all. He was so cute and weighed 6lbs 4oz. I don't know if real labor will be like that LOL since I didn't remember any of it but the little guy in my dreams was so adorable and I loved him!!! It also felt like popcorn popping inside my belly this morning, he was kicking like crazy! I love being able to finally feel him move around in there!
9/13/10 Routine Dr appt. Heard the HB via doppler, it's slowing down like they said it would/should. I don't know the numbers but it was good. I have gained 14ish lbs according to the Drs chart which he says is okay but I know I have gained a bit more. I ate a whole pack of starburst before being called back and the RN said she didn't see it in my urine. HORRAY LOL My cervix was still okay so I finally get to wait 4 weeks till my next appt.. Oct 11th
9/18/10 BF felt baby kick for the 1st time! It was so awesome!! I'm pretty sure it was all the hershey kisses I ate at the wedding
10/5/10 Went to Dr for pelvic pain/pressure and ended up with a nasty anibiotic (Flagyl) for a bacteria infection BUT the baby is secure in there with a strong HB, cervix is firm & closed and no amniotic fluid is leaking! Go for the 1 hr glucose test 10/19.
10/19/10 Failed my 1hr glucose test but passed the 3 hr! HORRAY!
11/4/10 Regular OB check up. HB good and strong, his head is down and Dr measured the length of my belly (uterus) with a tape measure, says it's good. IDK what that means but I'll take it!! Heading down to GA for my (smaller) family/friend shower. OMG I can't believe I made it to my very 1st baby shower!!! Big shower in NC is 11/13 I am super excited for both!!! Next appt 11/18.
Had 2 amazing showers, got lots of different stuff! We have to get working on his room ASAP!!!
11/18/10 Routine OB appt. HB was 165 b/c baby E was flopping around and kicking, Dr said that is a good rate for baby being active. He also said " Can you believe you have made it this far, 3/4 of the way done. Pretty good right" I love my OB so so much!!! It's been a long road that's for sure! He also said even though I passed the 3hr GT that my baby is going to be big! What does that mean??? Next appt is 12/2/10 for another U/S and maybe we can figure out how much he really weighs!!! YAHOO!!!
12/2/10 Had an U/S today, he hit a growth spurt and weighs 6.6lbs! His head and belly are measuring 36-37 weeks which is about 3 1/2 weeks ahead. The U/S tech said she does not think I will make it to Jan but my Dr did not seem phased by the size or that I my go into labor early. I don't have any experience with size since I'm a FTM so I guess we will have to wait and see. He has some fat on him now and looked SO CUTE on the U/S pictures! He was very active and showed off for us again. I love him so much and can't wait to meet him. In due time of course
12/4/10 Fell in parking lot of TGIF while out to eat with friends. My knee just gave out and I fell on my butt. I didn't think that baby would be affected b/c I didn't fall on my stomach but had some mild cramping so called the OB office. After hearing back from the Dr on call, she told me to go to the L&D at the hospital to be put on a monitor. We were hooked up for an hour (NST) and baby E was sleeping which is why I didn't feel him after dinner. He woke up with an attitude and did NOT like the monitor being on him b/c he kicked the thing like crazy! It was funny watching them move from him kicking them. His HB was fine and I had some BH as well as a 2 REAL contractions. The RN said she thought it was from the irritation and nothing to worry about unless I drop or start leaking water/fluid. The Dr let me go but said to take it easy and rest. If anything changes or the contractions come back to I have to move up my next office appt. Next appt is Dec 16th.
My EDD is 1/23/11
I don't know if it will change again since the baby is measuring ahead.
