I'm Carrie and my DH is Michael. I got my BFP on 4/13 and this is my first pregnancy. TTC has been a long journey for me. I had been trying since 2005 and hit many obstacles along the way, but I finally got pregnant on my own! I don't have an official due date yet, but it's estimated around December 17th. My first appointment is coming up on May 20.
Eight Weeks Belly:
Twelve Weeks Belly:
I had my first ultrasound on June 3rd and got the see the little bean moving around. The midwife changed our due date to December 13th and the u/s tech put our due date at December 19th. I guess we'll see when s/he wants to arrive. The heartbeat was in the 170s. It was so nice to finally see and hear our baby.
Next appointment: June 30th.
June 30 appointment went well. Not much to tell. Got to hear the baby's heartbeat (in the 147-150 range). Results of nuchal scan were low risk. Next appointment: July 28th...hopefully, we'll find out the gender.
15 Week Belly:
17 Week Belly:
I had my anatomy scan on July 28 and it's a GIRL! The sonographer said she looks healthy and right on track. We really only got to see her spine because she had her head buried deep in my pelvis and wouldn't come out to play. We didn't get a good look at her facial profile.
20 Week Belly:
My name is Elle and I have been married to DH for 3 years. This is our first pregnancy and we are so excited!! We got our BFP at 10 DPO on April 14th.
First Appointment: May 19th
EDD: December 26, 2011
I am 5w4d today and the all-day queasiness started... hope it doesn`t turn into full blown morning sickness.
Hey everyone! I originally joined the board three three years ago when I was pregnant with my DD. Now I am back, pregnant with number 2! Here's the lowdown:
1. Something brief about yourself- 36 years old, pg with no. 2
2. Info about your appointments had one- Due DECEMBER 9th
3. Pics of your BFP, your growing belly, ultrasounds, nursery shots, etc. can't get it off my phone right now!
4. Additional pregnancy tickers Not done one yet!
5. Anything else you want to share related to your pregnancy (please keep as brief as possible). I was going to try to hide the pregnancy until the end of school (I teach), but showing way too much to get away with that!
My main gripe: when did "Advanced Maternal Age" become ELDERLY MATERNAL CARE?!?!?!?!
That just ain't right.....
Hi, My name is Julie or Jules, and have been married to my DH for over 6 years (together 13), and we have an almost 3 year old son named Rogan. It took us 9 months to conceive Rogan, so we thought it might take a few months with this one, but it was literally 2 weeks. I got my BFP on March 30. We are due around Dec. 7th. This will be our last one, so I'm going to enjoy it as much as possible!
Had one uneventful appointment in April and have another on May 25. Hopefully will hear the heartbeat and get an US some time this month.
My name is Krista. I have a beautiful 2yr old boy named Braiden Robert. He is a handful but so fun. I am hoping for a girl on this one so we can be done. My DH and I are pretty young. 21 & 23. His name is Jeremy but I call him Jer. We have been together for 4 1/2 years and are very much happy with eachother. We are super excited for this new bean and can't wait for December! (even though I secretly love being pg because DH likes to wait on me whatever whenever I need him haha)
I got pg two weeks before my 21st birthday and didn't know until a week after. So this whole pg is quite a surprise but very welcomed. The sacrafices for children
We're Pregnant!!! 3/25/10 - first positive test
First real sign of a bump:

Hello there! My name is Krystal, I am 29 years old and I live in Las Vegas, NV. I have been married for 5 years this December (our anniversary is the day after my EDD!). I have two beautiful stepsons (they live in Idaho with their mom, though), a nine year old DS, a six year old DS, a two year old DD... and #4 is due December 1!
-Had first dr. appt 4/29... all was well!
-First U/S was 5/3... right on with my EDD, baby's HR was 166!
-OB appt 5/27, HR was 158... everything looks good!
-Had an elective U/S 6/3 and found out we are having another BOY!!
-OB appt on 6/9 was an emergency as I was prescribed some medication that was causing bleeding and cramping... everything turned out OK though, thank God!
-OB appt 6/24... everything is good, just some backache, HR is 153!
-Anatomy U/S was on July 8, he looks perfect, HR was 148!!!
-OB appt 7/25... everything looks good, up 12 lbs now (uuggghh!!)
-OB appt 8/23... all is well with baby, she can't get him to sit still to hear his HB because mommy drank Starbucks before her appt lol! Up 13 lbs...
-OB appt 9/12... HR is great, measuring a week ahead, up 16 lbs!
-OB appt 9/27... everything is normal and on track, up 20 lbs (shamefully lol)
-3D U/S 10/4... baby is about 4 lbs, he's absolutely beautiful, chubby cheeks, lots of hair, HR is 138
-OB appt 10/11... measuring a week and a half ahead, up 25 lbs, baby looks good!
-OB appt 10/25... still measuring ahead, now by two weeks, up 28 lbs, HR is 145, she wants me to come in for an U/S to measure how big baby is
-OB U/S 10/26... baby is measuring almost two weeks bigger than where he should be, they're now setting the due date around 11/22, estimated weight is 6 lbs 8 oz already, head is 9cm around!
-OB appt 11/8... baby is measuring 41 weeks now and I'm dilated 3CM! OB ordered an U/S with a peri to get another guestimate on his weight and size... peri appt scheduled for Monday 11/14 as well as OB appt right after.
-OB appt 11/14... had an U/S with the perinatologist, baby is still measuring large and estimated weight is 7 lbs 12 oz! Tested negative for GBS, Dr. says she doesn't want baby to go past 39 weeks due to his size, so she'll most likely induce the 25th or the 26th of this month... I'm 4CM dilated!
-OB appt 11/22... during my cervical check I was dilated 6CM so the OB sent me straight over to the hospital to have him!!!

I took a home preg. test on Good Friday. I really wasn't sure, as I had had a tubal ligation (tying of the tubes) done after my 4th child October 2003. I did have one miscarriage a year and half later at 15 weeks along. We were surprised that that was the issues I was having then. So here I am 7 1/2 years after my last one, and starting all over again! We are excited! Since the miscarriage I have prayed and hoped for a long time that the Lord would provide us with another child; He has! I am due on Dec. 23rd!
My first appt.: May 27 hb-171 All looks good. Had first u/s to verify dd and all is well with baby.
Sorry not sure how to browse for my pictures.

November 25, 2011:
Since I'll have a Dec baby I decided to C&P my January space here:
I'm Jenn - Dh is Jus - DS is Deacon. I got pg with Deacon after IVF and 2 FETs in 2008. I was told I would never be able to get pregnant on my own - literally I was just told that in March. I have been TTC on my own for 10-11 years and have never gotten pg without ART. But God had bigger plans for us - I got my BFP on Good Friday, April 22 at 12dpo. I wasn't expecting to test that day, I hadn't even considered the possibility of being pregnant. We are shocked and elated!
My first appt is May 20th for an ultrasound to date the pregnancy.
First OB appt on 5/13 with u/s. Saw the baby and heard the heartbeat! EDD is Jan 1. HB 122
Second OB appt on 5/27 with u/s. Saw the baby, heard the heartbeat, everything is measuring right on track. Had lost 2 lbs since first appt. HB 183
Third OB appt on 6/20 - HB was 153 on the doppler and 164 with the u/s. Everything looked great and the baby measured perfectly. I measured 3 days ahead.
~*~*~Snuck in a sneak peek to find out the gender on July 16th - It's a girl!~*~*~
Forth OB appt - July 18, 8:30 am HB was 144-ish, weight is up about 7-8 lbs. Talked about scheduling my repeat csection on 12/28.
Fifth OB appt and big ultrasound - 8/15, 3:45 pm
Sixth Sept 9, 8:30 am - GD test - I passed!
Seventh Oct 10, 8:30 am - 28 week appt - Next I start my 2 week appts!
Eighth Oct 24, 4 pm, routine
So thankful for the people that love us and want to bless this LO with gifts:
Oct 22 - My family
Nov 5 - DH's family
Nov 10 - work
