About Us
My name is Melanie. I have been married to DH Kris for almost 10 years together for 17. Our road to having children has been a little difficult. We have had 6 m/c's. 1 in 2001, 1 in 2003, 2 in 2009 and 2 in 2010. We had decided that we would not continue trying but I can't give up the dream of having another baby so here we are! It took 2 1/2 yrs to conceive my son with fertility help. His name is Jacob and he is 6 years old. He is wonderful and happy little boy that does not let Cerebral Palsy stop him. Since we have been trying in 2009 we do not need fertility help to get PG....which has confused all my docs. And everyone is confused with the m/c's as we have done all the testing and have not found any reason for them. We all believe one will stick so why not this one;) I am very lucky to be a SAHM - I love it!! Best job ever....with the worse pay Smile I am so excited to be PG again. I love everything about being PG...even the morning sickness!

EDD November 5, 2011

 BabyFruit Ticker

Feb 25th - first BFP on HPT
Feb 26th- Mar 1 - BFP on HPT every day (yes I am addicted to testing Smile )
Mar 3rd - 17 DPO HCG level 1,097!!!!

April 14 - was quite nervous for appt as I spotted yesterday but she did a quick u/s and we saw a very active little baby dancing around. I am considered high risk so I have to go back in two weeks - bp was a little high.
April 28
heard h/b was in the high 160's - nice and strong. Doc was happy with how good things looked on last weeks u/s. Is referring me to the Internal Medicine Specialist and Perinatologist and I need to keep seeing her every two weeks. BP was fine right before appt but went right up when doc came in - so frustrating.
May 12BP was high again in office but is is controlled outside of docs office so we are still just watching it closely. Babies h/b was in the 160's again - it was nice and strong. Still can't exercise or DTD. OB seemed a little more relaxed about it all
May 26 Same story - BP was high in office but is doing great at home. I take it 2 times a day. It was decided that due to my bicornuate uterus and my BP that it is best to do a scheduled c-section. Baby sounded great - heartbeat was in the 160's again
Jun1 Appt will internal medicine specialist team. Overall appt went good - they are optimistic that this PG will go better. They are lowering my BP meds - they feel it is better to have a little higher BP as the meds restrict flow to baby. They have me doing a bunch of blood work and tests on my heart as I have a murmur. They are confused why I have had high BP at 21..that is unusual for a healthy person. I will start seeing them regularly and every time I am in they want to do a u/s to watch flow to baby
Jun 9 Had appt with OB. Everything looks good...BP wasn't even as high as it usually is in the doc office. Baby girl's heartbeat was in 150's. Still only up 5lbs in total. Doc did not get u/s results from yesterday...she said that is obviously good as if there was any type of problem, big or small, they would have sent them right over.

March 17 - Had ultrasound at 6 weeks and 5 days and we saw a heartbeat....122bpm!! Everything looked great.

April 21 ultrasound went great. Heartbeat was 173 baby was pretty lazy but did wave. Baby was just kicking it butt up. I am 11w 5d and baby was measuring 12w Smile

June 8Ultrasound was great!!! Found out we are having a little [COLOR=Magenta]GIRL!!!! We are so happy!!! She was not moving around alot so it took a long time to get the pics...we think she was sleeping for most of it. I even jumped up and down to get her moving Smile She would not show us gender but I was just so happy all looked great I did not care but as soon as Dad came it - bam she flashed us. I forgot to ask what she was measuring at..we were 18w 4d. [/COLOR]

I really wanted to get to stay here but unfortunately my HCG has dropped down enough to be considered "negative" for pregnancy. I expect to miscarry in the next few days.

Good luck to all who get to stay!

My name is Jen and I'm new here. This is my first post! I'm a 27 year old registered nurse. My wonderful boyfriend Matt and I are expecting our first baby! This is my first pregnancy. I got my positive on Wednesday, March 2nd. My confirmation appointment was on Friday, March 4th. My doctor confirmed my pregnancy and after my pelvic exam she told me my uterus size was consistant for being 4 weeks! Our little peanut's due date is Tuesday, November 8, 2011.

I have a feeling that this baby is a girl! I don't know why or how to explain it. I can't wait until we find out!!

Here is my first positive. I was so surprised that to took two more! Yep, its positive! From my calcuations this baby started its journey on Valentine's day! Wink

I found a cute Yankee's T-shirt at Motherhood Maternity so I had to get it. Matt is a fan and I knew he would love it! I'm 4 weeks in this pic. Sorry I'm covering my face. Better pics will come!

Expecting our first!

My name is Kim. I'm a 25 year old registered nurse on a labor and delivery floor (*gulp* more scary now). My husband and I just had our first BFP test last wednesday March 2, 2010. My EDC atm is Nov 6, 2011. I'm nervous and can't wait for our first prenatal appointment on the 21st. (I have to wait a little longer because I start graduate school next week and have to fly out). I'll try to have pictures up soon but I just discovered this forum and am still trying to figure out how everything works.

I'm Michelle! Been married to dh since 2005 and we have one daughter who is nearly 4. This will be our last child since we've both decided we can't handle more than 2. Ha! I work part-time and would eventually like to open my own business whenthe kidlets are older.

+ hpt on march 2nd and due date is 11/11/11. Dh has a hunch that it will be a boy, but I think it will be a girl. We'll both be thrilled either way.

About Our Family

We are a busy family with four children, ages 8, 6, 4, and a baby at home. We are building an awesome Amway business and my husband is working on his PhD in biblical studies and I am preparing to go to medical school. This is our last baby due to trying to balance it all out and we are just thrilled! I conceived while nursing and am still nursing while pregnant and hoping to stay in shape and have our healthiest most peaceful pregnancy ever!

When we found out

I have to admit, we were not surprised. We were 9 days past ovulation..not our earliest bfp but not our latest. (I've tested clearly positive anywhere from 7 dpo to 11 dpo). Confirmed by a family doctor at 12 dpo. Symptoms included breast tenderness, tired, nausea, dizziness, and being a little more sensitive than normal. Here's a picture of our last hpts ever taken!


Growing Belly, Family, and Baby!

5 Weeks

Health Goals!
Prepregnancy: 118 lbs
Goal: Return to 118 lbs (5th pregnancy and time doing this..hope to do it one final time!!)

Anne's space!

I didn't do this with my DS, but decided I wanted to now!

About us

I am Anne, and my husband is Jack. We have been together 10 years, and married almost 8. We have a dog, Max, and our son, Jack (actually John, the 5th!). Jack (son) will be 2 in December 2011.

I am a work at home momma, running a little tie dye business out of our kitchen. I love that I can be creative and people pay me to do it! My husband is a software engineer by trade and training, but is a program manager now with his company. He is working on his PhD in computer something and cyber security.

This pregnancy
I am surprised, not shocked about this pregnancy. Cautiously optimistic, we'll say. Until I see the baby, hear his or her heartbeat, and everything like that, I am just going to go with the flow.

We got pregnant on our first not preventing month, so that's a good thing!

I'll be adding more later, right now, I hear Jack playing in his crib.

4/6/11-confirmed the pregnancy, saw baby's heartbeat-112 bpm. Measured 6w2d. Due date 11/28/11.

4/28/11-Weight-not going to mention, but its 2 lbs lighter than I was before pregnancy. Smile BP was 128/74, good for a doctor's office. Dr. feels confident that things will be good. Have to do my bloodwork and do a 24 hour urine catch/pre-e bloodwork to establish a baseline.

First trimester
Week 4-Wow! Can't believe I am pregnant!
Week 5-took two more tests...just to be sure! Nice blue lines!
Week 6-starting to feel a bit more fatigued and sore bbs. No real sickness yet, just can't stand the thought of eating poultry.
Week 7-Nothing really remarkable-tiredness, sore bbs, nausea here and there.
Week 8-See week 7.
Week 9-A bit more tiredness
Week 10-Holy moly tiredness, good amount of nausea...moodiness...gah!
Week 11-

I'm late adding myself, as Trystan was due in December! But seeing as he's officially a November Sweet Potato, here's my space!

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!!!

Trystan Magnus Petersen, born November 22, 2011 @ 4:53PM, weight 9lbs 1oz, length 19in, apgars 8 and 9!!!
