Hello all! I've been lurking for a week but figured it was about time I said hello! I got a BFP 4/19/12 and my EDD is 12/20/12. I have a 12 yr old DS, a 7 yr old DD, and a 2 yr old DD--all three born in September! Before my 2 yr old was born, I had two losses, one early at 5 wks 5 days and one at 17 weeks. My 2 yr old was born 6 weeks early; my water had actually broken 9 weeks early and I was hospitalized for 3 weeks! EEK! Hopefully that won't happen again! After my 2 yr old was born, we figured that we were done having kids . . . that is, until that BFP last week anyway! We are both very excited to welcome our 4th child in December, but a little apprehensive at the same time because of the previous losses and preterm delivery. I have told my two closest friends about the pregnancy, but otherwise, we haven't told anyone--not any of our family or our kids. So it's a big secret for now!!!
Other than that, I would say life is pretty busy for me. On top of the craziness of having 3 busy kids, I go to school full time and I am a fitness instructor so I spend a good 3-4 hours a day at the gym followed by 8-12 hours of studying. Phew! It's a lot! But I love it. Luckily, I am out of school for the summer so I will have some time to enjoy my kids and my pregnancy. So far, I have not been sick at all, just really tired. That makes me THINK BLUE since I wasn't sick with my DS, but I was really sick with my DDs. Guess we'll wait and see at the ultrasound!
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all. I have made some good friends on these boards with my previous pregnancies and losses so I hope to make some new birth buddy moms here!!! Congrats to all of you!!
Nice to meet you!
Congrats!!! I hope everything goes perfectly with this pregnancy and you have a HH9M!
You sound busy, busy so hopefully you can find some time to sit down. but it's wonderful that you are feeling so good still.
Hi! Welcome and HH9M!

Thanks you guys!! I'm excited to be here! MissMia, I am studying political science and my minor is in legal studies. The original plan was to go to law school; however, I have changed my mind and decided to get an MBA instead!
Congratulations and welcome to the boards!
Hi nice to meet you. Hopefully this will be a nice uneventful pregnancy and the m/s will stay away since you are one busy mama! HH9M
