Hello I guess i'll go first

I'm Gillian (30). Right now i'm due Nov 2nd. This my 2nd. I have a DS that just turned 3.

I had 2 rounds of blood work already, betas more doubled. I have an U/S on March 8. I had an ectopic pregnancy in Dec so this one will be watched very closely for about 12 weeks. I guess really hope this one sticks in the right place.

So had my u/s March 8 - everything looked great even saw a heart beat!!! I am over the moon. Of course this weekend DH tells me that the girl name we have had picked out for over 5 years he doens't like any more... oh... ok back to the drawing board on that. I'll try and post a pic later!

I haven't been here in a while, life has just been crazy, but we found out in early June we are having another Boy. He was pain for the U/S, but all and all was totally health. I am still hoping that my docs will thinking about letting this one come out to play a bit early... any time after Oct 12 is good with me, but i'll have to wait and see

DH (Mark - 36yrs) and I (31yrs) have been married for 5 years. We tried to conceive for several years but were told that it was highly unlikely I would ever get pregnant. We had always planned to adopt after our first baby, so we just moved the timing up a bit. We were blessed with our DD, Shiloh in October 2007. In June 2009, we brought home our sons from Uganda. These kids have brought so much joy into our lives and we can't imagine life without them!

In November we went to a fertility specialist to discuss embryo adoption. We were hoping to start the process sometime in 2010. After discussing my medical history with her, she shocked us both by saying she believed that we had been misdiagnosed and using a different medication, we would be able to conceive. DH was thrilled! I was skeptical and cautious since I had moved past all the drama of TTC and wasn't sure I wanted to go there again. She asked us to try again for a few cycle which I reluctantly agreed to. Much to my surprise and amazement I became pregnant our first cycle. We are all looking forward to the addition of this LO to our family. :grouphug:

Hi everyone! I'm 31 years old and am due on November 1 (I'll be 32 by then). I got my blood test results today and have an ultrasound scheduled for March 17th.

We already have a beautiful little girl named Grace who was born on Dec. 9, 2008. She's nearly 15 months old now!

I'm going to put it down in writing here that I strongly suspect this one is a boy! My gut feeling was right on target last time, so let's see if I'm right!

3/17: Just had my first ultrasound and we got to see the heartbeat!

Vanessa's space!

The Story of Us...
I am Vanessa (28) and DH is Ryan (30) and we have been together for 10 and a half years and have been married for almost 5. We knew we wanted children and started trying after about 3 months of marriage. Well after 6 months and still nothing I wasn't that worried yet, but we had to take a break because DH joined the army. We tried on and off (because of different trainings and other army stuff) for the next 15 cycles when we finally got some testing done. Well it turned out both my tubes were blocked and were irrepairable. IVF would be our only chance... but first DH deployes for a year so we had to wait.
Our IVF Journey...
We tried a couple of times once he got back from deployment to get things started but God had other plans. So finally in January of 2010 we had everything lined up to finally start!
Jan 30 last birth control pill
Feb 5 start stims
Feb 9 first blood draw and ultrasound
Feb12 blood draw and U/S
Feb 14 HCG trigger shot
Feb 16 egg retrieval they got 7 eggs and 6/7 were healthy! All 6 fertilized!
Feb 19th embryo transfer we transferred 2 beautiful 8 celled embryos

Feb 23 found out that 3 of our extra embryos made it to the freeze!
And then the waiting began my first beta was scheduled for March 4th. I talked to my belly everyday. Told my babies to get nice and comfy. On Thurs Feb 26th i decided to cheat and take a test and to my dismay it was NEGATIVE... i couldn't even squint and pretent do see a line. I lost all hope i was sure the cycle was a bust not to mention later that day i had a little spotting and cramps and back pain I was SURE AF was on her way! So i waited...
On March 1st I just wanted to find out already and get on with my life (since i was sure it was negative) so i took a $$ store test and Had to do a double take ...there. was .a. second. pink. line... I did not believe it! So i ripped open a FRER and dipped it and two of the most beautiful lines I had ever seen appeared! I cried and giggl;ed and cried I probably looked like a crazy lady!
Beta Results!
Feb 2 172.5
Feb 4 271.9
Feb 5 452
Feb 16 9,897
Feb 17th It's TWINS!

Kandice's Space!!!!
***Due November 2nd***

Hi Everyone!

My name is Kandice, I'm 25 and married to my loving, amazing, wonderful husband Chris. We've been married for 3.5 years (together for a bit over 10).

We welcomed our first child Hannah into the world in May of 2008. She's a bundle of joy and is absolutely hilarious!

We found out we are expecting our second baby while on vacation in the Dominican Republic on Feb. 23 which was actually about 4 days after my missed period. I always record my periods but for some reason January was a missed month (of recording) so I don't remember exactly the start of my period. Currently my midwives are "guessing" my due date is November 1st. I suspect it's a bit before that and if history repeats itself I'll be having this kiddo a week before his/her due date!

My first appointment is scheduled for April 5th and I'm sure following that appointment with my midwives will be an ultrasound. I can't wait to see this little munchkin!!

Nausea pretty bad as of late but still no vomiting
Bigger belly
Felt baby flutter around on May 11th
Started getting nausea and vomitting again around 17.5 weeks! Sad

April 5th - First midwife appointment
May 4th - Second midwife appointment
June 1st - Third midwife appointment with my secondary midwife
July 6th - Fourth midwife appointment with primary again

April 13th @ 10am
Big U/S June 18th @ 8:30AM

As the nickname tells it this little bundle of joy is my second unexpected but overly welcomed addition to the family. I had my BFP on March 26th...but could have had it way sooner as I was just denying the obvious until recently.
I'm 28 and my husband and I have been married for 8 years, together for 10 and have an 2 year old son, he'll be 3 in May.
No belly pics yet, I can't tell baby from fluff at the moment as I still have baby fat from my first son floating around the middle. There goes my weight loss plans for the summer.

I'll make this space pretty later....I'm tired.

I am 37 and have been married for 14 years. We have a DS who is 10 and a DD who is 7. We got our BFP on 3-13-10. First doctor's appt is scheduled for 4-7-10. We had an early m/c before DS but my other 2 pregnancies went well. This baby was not a planned one, so this has caught us by surprise. I'm a little worried b/c of my age, but am praying for a HH9M!

I'll take the next "space"!

I'm Jelene. Married to DH for 5 years. We were blessed with our beautiful daughter in April of 2007, and our DS in May of 2009. We are expecting our 3rd in November of 2010.

3/24/10- BFP
3/26/10-Doctor says Yep I'm pregnant, and due Nov 23rd.
4/5/10-1st u/s. I say I am 6 weeks-due Nov 30th., Tech says I am 6 weeks, Doctor says I am 7 weeks.
4/8/2010- Doctor confirmed over the phone that my due date is now Nov. 30th given the ultrasound results. He said it was a textbook u/s for 6 weeks. Smile
6/21/2010-(17 weeks)We were told our baby has a 34 in 100 chance of having downs syndrome. We did the sequential screening test. And now we are doing a Level II ultrasound soon where, besides measurements, they look for any indicators. Now we prepare ourselves for the possibility of having a baby with Downs. How to take care of him/her, what medical conditions could we be facing, etc.
7/6/2010-(19 weeks)- Level II ultrasound shows no indicators of Downs. Smile All our preparing and worrying is now set aside. yes the chance is there, but now is minimal. Doctor said a baby born with any syndrome will show at least 2 indicators on an ultrasound. Especially Downs because of the common physical features. Now we can go on with our pregnancy and relax now.

***I'll take this space***

I found out I was pregnant at 4w3d,
first u/s 6w1d no heart beat detected yet, however normal for the type of u/s I had and it was just a quick scan as my progesterone was a little low.

Can't wait to enjoy the experience of being pregnant, and hopefully ENJOY it, unlike my first where I was always nervous about every ache and pain:D

Love the spaces idea. Smile

I am Meagan, mother to Brian (July 2003 Ruby Cutie). I got engaged to John on Halloween 2009. Three weeks ago, we found out that my Ortho Evra failed miserably and we were 7wks+ pregnant. Turns out God has a great sense of humor. Our wedding is set for 10/10 and the baby is due 11/11. :neener: [No, I don't want to wait for wedding until after baby is born; no, we can't move it up due to both sets of parents living internationally currently and because the reception location said we would forfeit and have to repay our deposit if we moved the date. :mad: ]

This pregnancy has been very different from my last. I'm 31 now; was 24 when I got pregnant with Brian. I had no nausea and no breast changes with him. Just wicked bad sciatica. This time I have been exceptionally nauseated and vomiting. That seems to have finally stopped and now I am just super dizzy. I am also extremely hormonal - crying, grouchy, generally unpleasant. Not to mention already showing at 10 weeks. All of my clothes are uncomfortable and my body hurts. Waah. Having a hard time getting happy about all of this, especially as I face selling my dream wedding dress and being 37 weeks on my wedding day. That said, babies are a blessing and I know it will work out. Just hoping I can get with the program soon.

I'm really not usually such a downer. I got a lot of support from PG.org when I was pregnant before (and for several years after) and am hoping to find a community here, too, so that we can commiserate on all the pregnancy fun rather than driving our family, friends and coworkers nuts with the constant baby talk. Biggrin Looking forward to getting to know everyone.

**12-week NT Scan**

**17-week OB visit**
OB says baby is growing "perfectly" with a heartbeat in the 160s. Have gained only 2lbs. Big u/s scheduled for June 15!

**19-week Big U/S**
It's a boy!
And we are about a week ahead of schedule!

**25 weeks**
DX'd with DVT (blood clot) in leg on 7/20. Put on Lovenox 2x/day for the rest of pregnancy and beyond... Two weeks bed rest.

**26 weeks**
OB/Gyn says she will have to induce me at 38 weeks so we're looking at 10/21 or 10/22 for delivery.

**27 weeks**

**28 weeks*
Well, amazingly, bed rest has made me lose weight. Probably because I have no access to salt & vinegar potato chips and chocolate - LOL. Saw doc today and I am now only 4lbs over my pre-pregnancy weight (which means I lost 14 of the 18 I had gained). I'm normally a 14/16 so I had weight to lose. Doc's not worried.

Still on bed rest for blood clots in leg until at least end of August. My BP was slightly elevated (normal for me is 95/60 and today it was 118/75) and baby's HB was 170 (!) so they put me on a monitor for a while. Baby was still kicking up a storm, though, so they said all is fine.

My son, 7, has a Big Brother class and hospital tour this weekend. FI is going to drive us all down there and they said I can use a wheelchair so I can still participate in everything with him.

Happy about the weight and looking forward to the tour this weekend. My son is so cute - keeps saying, "What if I don't learn it all before the baby comes?" Awww...

**30 Weeks**

**32 Weeks**
Went in last Thursday for my 31-week appointment and a consult with a perinatologist. Perinatologist said "Mommy is miserable but, fortunately, baby doesn't seem to notice." She said even though I keep losing weight (now lost all 16 I had gained and about 3 more this week), the baby is growing well. He's 4lbs and looked good on ultrasound. He's breech right now. She wants me to continue on anti-seizure meds, agrees with neurologist that I should start physical therapy for headaches and see if I can get the nausea under control that way (versus Zofran) because perhaps it will help me eat more. They want me to try not to lose more weight this month and will rescan me October 1 to see how baby is doing and whether he is still breech.

**34 Weeks**
Still sick as a dog. Almost puked on one of my bridesmaids today. Third week of physical therapy this week and not much improvement. That said, we had a block party today and my fiance pulled a chair out for me in front of the house. I was able to participate for about 45 minutes and it was nice to get out.

**37 Weeks**
Got married 10/10/10 and made it through. Then spent last week puking, exhausted and recovering from it all. Now I am just DONE. OB has set induction for 10/22.

Hi, I'm Jenny (35) married to Michael (43). We have a beautiful little girl, Catie, who will be 2 on July 8th. I'm expecting my second little girl on November 15th.

My screen name is furbabymama because I had 3 dogs and a cat while my DH had 2 dogs when we met. Therefore, we have a brady bunch of animals.

I'll have to pizazz this and make it more interesting when I have more time. Smile
