Hi ya'll! My name is Amie and I'm 29 years old and now pregnant with baby #2! I got my BFP Tuesday April 22nd with a FR test. I was on CD 40 and my friend Richelle MADE me test because she had to know LOL! I had tested a week early with BFN's so I just thought I was having a loong cycle and I was afraid something was wrong with me! Anyway, I went and did my pee thing and a line came up immediately! I fell in the floor blubbering over and over "omg I'm pregnant!" That probably went on for about 5 minutes untill the shock somewhat wore off! We were totally shocked and suprised as we were not actively trying to get preggo! We were actually wanting to wait a few months! Smile oops!

I thought I o'ed earlier, than I REALLY did and thats how we got oopsies! But we are very excited to be having another baby and I'm so happy to be here!

:neonflower: Had my doc appt yesterday April 28, and had my pregnancy confirmed. They have me at 7ws but I don't think thats right. I will schedule my OB appt tommorrow!

:neonflower: 5/9/08 Morning sickness starts...eww...

:neonflower: 5/18/06 Went to ER for dehydration and got our first u/s!!! Saw the hb at 136bpm! Looked just like Aidens u/s at that age!! Due date changed to Jan 04...but I'm keeping my Jan 1 DD because that goes my my possible date of conception.

:neonflower: First OB appt today and I LOVE the place! Talked to midwife today and getting u/s in two weeks and we also talked about VBAC! *crosses-fingers!*

:neonflower: U/S scheduled for June 4 @ 2:30!! I get to meet my OB!

Cord was wrapped around his neck and both of his arms. Our incompatible blood types crossed (he's B+ I'm O-). He was jaundiced enough to keep us a day longer than first told.

Update- After a tri-screen scare and CVS test, we found out.....It's a boy!

UPDATE- 2nd appt on Monday, we heard the heartbeat! Over 160 BPM. Pretty cool! We get to do another u/s in two weeks because I had a small cyst on my first and they want to check on it.

I have my first ultrasound pics!! Still really small, but a heartbeat of 137. They're thinking I'm going to be more like Dec 25th now though!

HCG on 4/22, 10 days DPO- 744 (yikes, that seems high!)
HCG on 4/26, 14 days DPO- over 4000 (normal)

I am Monica, and this will be #2 for us, got lucky and conceived on the first try. my EDD is January 1st. I threw away all my HPT after I thought I miscarried, turns out it was just some crazy bleeding and my hcg's came back at 24,000 at 5w4days and 32,000 at 5w6d, no sign of twins in my first ultrasound(whew!). I go back on the 19th for another ultrasound to hear a heartbeat. Hopefully it will be good news.

May 19th U/S there's a heartbeat Smile
June 2nd consult with homebirth midwife
June 4th U/S reveals a complete placenta previa
June 18th 1st appt. with new OB office, heard the heartbeat with the doppler 128bpm
July 17th appt. with new OB, everything's good, gained 6 lbs so far.
Aug. 4th BIG U/S, healthy baby, possibly a boy, the tech slipped up, I think. Still a complete placents previa. Sad
Aug. 14th had my OB appt. hb was 145, gained 14lbs so far. The U/S report sent to the OB said my placenta was just lowlying, not a previa anymore Smile
Aug. 22nd had my first appt. with the midwife and everything was great hb was 145bpm. We were there for almost 2 hours with the midwife, Sienna came and loved it there.
Sept. 12th HB was good, gained 23 lbs so far, scheduled my 28 week appt, to do the glucose testing and to get another Rhogam shot. in and out in less than 20 minutes.
Sept. 19th great appt. hb was 148bpm, lost 1 lb since OB appt, for a total of 22lbs gained so far. We went over my diet, need more protein, etc. watched a video of a woman having a waterbirth, Sienna was entranced. Sienna asks everyday if we are going to the midwife today. Have another appt. in 3 weeks and we will test my iron, better start taking my supplements.
Oct. 10th OB appt, hb was 150, did the glucose test, got a Rhogam shot, gained 6lbs for a total of 28 so far. Midwife appt, hb was 140, baby was head up, everything was "perfect" discussed insurance and it is looking like a decent amount out of pocket, but we can probably change our insurance to lower our deductibles and spend less overall.
Oct. 13th U/S today, placenta is still low lying but they said shouldn't cause any problems, but I should go back around 34 weeks or so to check again, baby was great, weight estimated around 2lbs 10 oz, hb was 138. This tech kept saying "she" so this really will be a surprise.
Oct. 23rd had my OB appt, glucose came back at 87, iron was 10.1 and 34, so a little low, I don't plan on scheduling any more appts. with them.
Oct. 24th everything is good, discussed my iron levels, just need to keep up with my iron supplements and I should be fine, scheduled my next 3 appts. including my home visit at 36 weeks!
Oct. 26th my baby shower- nice and mellow, just a few friends from work, got the swing I wanted and a few other small items that I needed.
Nov. 10th midwife appt. everything is good, gained 4 more lbs for a total of 35, hb was 156bpm, measuring right on. I thnk this baby will be bigger than Sienna, hopefully not by much though.
Nov. 21st midwife appt.
Dec. 1st midwife homevisit!
Dec. 8th midwife appt. mw suggested we look at my placenta on the u/s and it looked right in front of baby's head.
Dec 10th I scheduled another u/s and my placenta is 1.7 cm away from my cervix. too low for a homebirth.
Dec. 11th had an OB visit, she says I can go for a vaginal birth, but if there is bleeding then I will need a c-section, that is a relief, thought I would be an automatic c-section.
Dec. 18th had an OB appt, weighed in at 155, yikes! I am up 45 lbs. everything is good, I am 1 cm dialated
Dec. 23rd OB appt. gained 2 more lbs, now I am at the weight I was when I had Sienna. I am now dialated to 2cm. Have been having contractions on and off, getting closer. Measured the belly, it is 43."
Dec. 30th next OB appt. nothing too exciting, baby is posterior, which I have known all along, measuring right on, actually lost a lb, so I am at 46lbs total. Baby is high still, but probably b/c its OP.
Jan. 2 NST and BPP Had to go to the hospital for NST and BPP (u/s) since I am now overdue. Everything looked good, fluid level was 9.6.
Jan. 6th OB appt. and NST gained 4 more lbs for a total of 50, ughh... baby is great, scheduled an induction for Sunday night, 1/11, I'll be 10 days late at that point, really hoping to go into labor on my own before then. NST was uneventful, everything is good.
Jan. 9th NST and BPP
Jan. 11th 8pm Induction scheduled

Expecting a surprise but just for fun we tried the intelligender test that my midwife gave us

Ay up! I'm Sarah and this is my fantabulous space! Biggrin

I'm 27 years old and i live with my husband Scott who is 31. We have been together for 11 years and married since February 2007.

We have two children in heaven. Zane and Ada.

Zane was concieved after trying for 7 months and born at 41 weeks by c-section. We lost him after he fought the effects of blood loss, caused by undiagnosed Vasa Praevia. www.vasapraevia.co.uk.

Ada was concieved 6 months after we lost Zane and her name means 'happy'. She passed away at 25 weeks and the reasons remain unknown. She was stillborn by c-section.

Please forgive how haggard i look in these photographs, but they are precious to me because i am holding my babies.

I got my BFP for this baby after we had been trying for 5 cycles. I am excited and nervous and happy and worried and thankful and wary and all sorts of crazy emotions. It is going to be a long nine months, if i make it that far, but i will be grateful every single second because those seconds may be the last with this child. Smile

It's a GIRL!!
Introducing Tegan Noelle

I'm having a high-risk pregnancy due to high blood pressure and hypothyroid. I'm currently taking (in addition to prenatals) Methyldopa (for BP), Synthroid (for thyroid), and Prometrium (progesterone). This is my 6th pregnancy, and I've had 4 m/cs. Despite all of that, I'm very hopeful for this one!

1st Appointment (NP) - May 19th! BP 130/90
2nd Appointment (HR OB) - May 29th BP 120/79
1st u/s - May 29th Gestational sac, Yolk sac, and a Subchorionic Bleed
3rd Appointment (HR OB) - June 12th BP 120/74
2nd u/s - June 12th We have a heartbeat! 146 BPM
4th Appointment (HR OB) - June 30th BP Unknown, Had to switch BP Meds
5th Appointment (HR OB) - July 14th Everything's looking great!
3rd u/s - July 14th No more bleed!! Yay!
4th u/s - July 31st Unexpected, but we found out it's a girl!
6th Appointment (HR OB) - August 18th BP was "perfect".
7th Appointment (HR OB) - September 15th Great BP, and I'm officially 0 lb +/- !
5th u/s ***THE BIG ONE*** - September 15th Yay! She's still a girl!
8th Appointment (HR OB) - October 16th Good BP without meds! Weight gain: 1 lb total. :shock:
6th u/s -Growth Scan- October 17th She's long and skinny, but a very healthy 1 lb 13 oz!
9th Appointment (HR OB) - October 30th

Because of what happened with one of my losses, I took another test at 20 DPO. Turns out, I didn't need to worry! You could see the test was + before the pee even hit the control line!

7wk 6d scan Our little froggie.

12wk 3d scan Whew, so we're not having an amphibian!!

21wk 3d Half her face is covered by her arm.

Guess I should claim my space too ~ I'll update with pics later in the week.

I am Karen (35), DH is Ray (44) ~ we already have one son, Liam, who is 2 at the end of May. DH also has a daughter from a previous marriage, who is 16.

We had been TTC#2 for 15 months, before we finally got that BFP (we think our infertility was caused by meds that DH was on ~ he took a break from them for a month, and that was the month we got pg!).

We got our BFP on 5/8/08
EDD is 1/15/09
First appt is 6/11/08

Guess I should reserve my spot!

After 5 years of not preventing, we finally went to see what was wrong. Due to MFI, we had to turn to donor/IUI. I went through a failed Clomid cycle in February 08. After taking March to regroup, we started injectibles.

I produced 8 eggs and was inseminated on April 16th and 17th. Got my first BFP on April 28th. Confirmed with bloodwork on May 2nd.

On Monday, May 12th I was ultrasounded for the first time since BFP. There were 2 sacs. One with a yolk and one without. On Thursday, May 15th, we got a heartbeat on the one with a yolk and a yolk where there was none. I go back on Tuesday, the 20th for another ultrasound.

As far as belly pics....I'm a big girl, so I don't think I'll have a belly for a while, although my pants are snug already!

Robert and I were married in Las Vegas on October 22nd 2005

Robert and I met thru mutual friends. We grew up only 2 hours away from each other, but had never met. We both grew up in Western Montana (near Missoula) but met and lived in Billings. I was just getting out of a marriage, and wanted nothing to another man, but for some reason, he kept coming around. After acquiring all the debt of my x-husband, I moved in with Robert for a short time to get my money situation fixed (or decide to move back home). Things ended up working out with each other, and we became inseparable.

We became official the first Thursday night football game of the season. I asked him to marry me the next April. Yes, you read right. I asked him to marry me. Ok, it was an accident;

We had been drinking, and then I (being a woman) thought that we’d have a conversation right before we went to bed. In the middle of our conversation, I asked him if he was serious about our relationship. He did not answer. He was passed out. SO, I gave him a soft jolt in the side. It ended up being a very hard punch in the kidney. He jumped up screaming, “WHAT!”.
“So, are we getting married or what?” I asked, not really meaning to ask him to marry me.
“Yeah, whatever, Just let me sleep.” Was his answer.
Not so romantic, but it’s definitely a story to share.

We’ve had our ups and downs, trials and tribulations. We work on things, and we work with each other. It’s not always a joyride, but it’s a ride I’ll never regret.

Newborn Baby Girl

Aislynn has taught me more things than I ever imagined. Sounds so cliché, but it really is true. Above all, she has taught me patience, fear, and undoubted love. It’s been amazing watching her grow, change, and learn.

Robert and I tried for 11 months to conceive a child. This would have totaled 2 years, 11 months total for me trying to have a baby. It’s a roller coaster ride I’d never wish on anyone. We scheduled a meeting to visit other options (adoption) when we finally got our BFP. I cried, as most would imagine. After seeing so many bfn’s, I honestly never thought I’d see a positive test. It was AMAZING.

Just about Me
I was born and raised in Western Montana. I currently live in Utah. I'm waiting for the day that we get to move back to Montana, but it doesn't seem to be anywhere in the near future.
I rode a HD Sportster until we decided to have another baby. With the realization that I wouldn't be able to ride much for another year, I decided to sell my bike. That was a hard day. However, I have a fund to plan to buy a new bike in the spring of 2010. I get excited everytime I see the bike I want. The HD Crossbone. Oh yeah!!! I've got a few tattoos, and the gear to go, but that's about as far at the biker chick goes. I talk tough, but there's no bite behind it.
I graduated from the University of Montana with a BS in Business Management. I'm currently putting that degree to good use in managing a household, toddler, husband, and pregnancy.
