I am Christy age 38 and I am pg with my 4th child. I am a mom to 3 wonderful kids. Samantha(6), Lilly(3) and Isaiah(1). Also a step-mom to Kyle(21) and Elijah(7). I am a birth doula and I run 2 websites. I sell custom cards, baby-wearing items and cloth diapers. I am hoping to be trained as a childbirth educator soon.

Here is the pic of my bfp I got on August 19th at 10dpo.

First blood work at 4w - HCG - 86 Progesteron - 16

Expecting #3!

BFP at 10dpo (FRER)..........................12dpo.........................................14dpo

and the cheapies (9dpo was BFN, BFPs start 10dpo)

u/s 7w3d

EDD May 5. My boys were both born in the week before their EDDs, so I'm guessing I'll go in the first few days of May.

DS1 was born 12-8-07
DS2 was born 8-12-09
They're 20 months apart and DS2 and this LO will be just shy of 21 months apart. Biggrin

I'm guessing it's another little boy, but I would be thrilled with a little girl!

BFP 10DPO on 9/05/10.

Shocked as it was our 1st month TTC, not our 12th, but still getting excited.
First OB appt 9/20/10 I can hardly wait.

9/20/10 OB appt:
Sucked really. It was orientation granted, but I feel like I wasted an hour of my time. And I really didn't appreciate the comment of "Oh, so you're not far along at all!" when she found out I was 5w5d. I know its still early but its not the nicest comment, to me at least. So now I'm psyched about my first real appt on 25 Oct

More construction to come

I am a 27-year-old mother of two beautiful boys, Quentin (age 5) and Jude (age 2). While I was pregnant with Jude, I came upon the story of a woman who gave birth to babies in her home, but there was a catch - they weren't hers. As I read more and more about surrogacy, I began to realize it was something I really wanted to do. And in December of 09, I was matched with a WONDERFUL couple who also happen to live near me. We've been through a lot of bumps in the road (you can read the story that led up to the pregnancy and more at Baking Someone Else's Baby

We transferred two beautiful blastocysts via IVF on September 1st, and on September 24th, we saw one strong heartbeat for the first time - 109 BPM!




A second ultrasound at 8w1d - baby is measuring 8w2d: Perfect! Heart rate is now 163 bpm. Everything looks perfect. :sunny:


Third and final ultrasound under the care of my RE. Baby is measuring 10w2d, still perfect! Smile Heart rate 166 bpm. I see my midwife next week!


Cabbage gender test results, 14 weeks



More pictures and explanation on my blog, but I'm calling that BOY!

20 week results! MFM doc says the baby and pregnancy are perfect and beautiful. Also, it's a girl!
You can see all of the pictures here, but here are my favorites. She's such a drama queen.
