This my family and me this past October at Disneyland

Dh, Jeff and I met just after I graduated from high school, we were engaged a year later and though we planned to be married within a year things got put on hold for various reasons. We got married the summer I graduated from college, August 7, 2004.

Then it was time for me to find a "real job" which I did, working at the county. After a few years we started ttc, 3 months later we got our bfp. Peyton Beth was born June 25, 2007

We planned to have another when she was about 2 but life had other plans, layoffs at work specifically. So with the stress from being laid off we put #2 on hold. I was rehired and before we could considered ttc again I was offered a job as a legal assistant that I couldn't refuse. Once again on hold. Though I had only been at my job 6 months we started ttc again in september and
Got my bfp December 4th

We plan to not find out the gender again with this one, that moment is well worth the wait.

I'm assuming that BFP; has something to do with a positive test but for the life of me can not figure out what the acronym stands for... I am pregnant for the first time after about a year of trying with my husband (Ben) of less than 2 years. We are currently stationed in Honolulu, HI with the Coast Guard; but we are getting out and moving to (most likely our hometown of) Pittsburgh this spring. It's a lil insane with our health care not to mention environment completely changing almost half way through the pregnancy but we'll manage just fine I'm sure.

I never thought I would be here, in '06 I was married to my ex-DH and took 6 months of clomid after TTC for a year and have not been on birth control since '04. I was diagnosed with the catch all "unexplained infertility" and had been living a frustrating existence since then, and divorced in early '09. i was pretty well convinced that it was never going to happen for me... i met DB Ash in early '10 and believe I've been given a second chance at forever... and it ended up being just like everyone said, when I least expected it Smile

I am Jessica and just got the BFP today and by on-line calculators am due on 8-30-11. It appears that I got pregnant on the very day that my DH said (after 11 years together) that he wanted a child. I have not yet told him b/c we are going to VT for Christmas and want to surprise him while on vacation.

Good luck everyone!

Hello!:) My name is Kimberly. My DH is Robert. I am 10wks and 1 day. I got a bfp on 12/13/10. My EDD is August 9, 2011.

I had my first appt. on 12/16/10 which was with the OB coordinator.

My 2nd appt. was 12/17/10 for an ultrasound to make sure that the fetus was in the uterus and to confirm how far along I was because I couldn't remember the exact day of my last period(I was off by one day) . We got to see a picture of the fetus and because the ultrasound was trans-vaginal we got to hear the heartbeat.

I just went for my 10 week appt. on 01/11/11. DH was excited because we got to see the baby again. The biggest treat was seeing it fluttering around and seeing the limbs move. DH was ecstatic. They gave him 2 more pictures for his collection of memoirs.
