Since we already have some early BFPs I thought it was time to start up the spaces thread. Congrats to all you August 2010 Mamas!

Oh boy!! I guess I'm first Biggrin I'm scared to reserve my spot, but here we go!

Hi there! My name is Holly and I'm 26 years old. I've been married to my hubby, Todd, for 4 1/2 years, and we have two beautiful little girls. Addison was born 6.1.06 and is 3 1/2 years old. Lauryn was born 11.29.07 and will be 2 next week! We started trying for our third little blessing in December 2008 and after three crazy cycles, we were blessed with our BFP. I was due in Nov. 09, but sadly that pregnancy ended in a m/c. After 7 long, frustrating months with the last 2 being on Clomid I got my BFP at 11 dpo. I am due July 30 and am so looking forward to this journey!


11.12.09 Had my progesterone checked at 4dpo. It came back 25.2
11.20.09 Had a beta drawn. At 13 dpo: 152
11.27.09 Had a small wave of nauseus this morning.
12.5.09 First day with constant waves of nauseus.
12.10.09 First OB appointment-Went really well! Due date has been changed to July 30 and my u/s has been scheduled for Monday, 12.14.09. Doctor wants to give me some reassurance right away as well as check to see how many LOs are in there!
12.14.09 First u/s went amazingly well!! We have a heartbeat...150 beautiful bpm Yahoo Baby measured 7w2d so we're right on track with our due date as well! Whew!
12.30.09 OB Appointment....was able to get a second peak at our little one. Nice strong hb of 163 bpm Yahoo
1.10.10 Trip to the ER. Wanted to check on baby after being rear-ended. LO looked good. Nice, strong hb of 163 bpm!
1.13.10 Found LO at home with the doppler. HB bounced around from 157-163 Biggrin
1.28.10 Had a boring, uneventful appointment Biggrin BP was fine, measured right on track. LO had a hb of 156 (doc found it right away). I am also up 2 lbs.
1.30.10 Ended up in the ER for some bleeding. After an u/s was performed, it showed that I have a low placenta. Am currently on pelvic rest and if bleeding starts again, modified bed rest may be in order Sad
2.13.10 I *think* I felt the baby yesterday (16w1d). I was laying on the couch and felt this little tap. It was down low and off to the right side, which is where I typically find baby with the doppler. I poked around for a while hoping it would happen again and nothing. Then 10 minutes later I felt the same thing. I am pretty sure it was the baby!!
2.25.10 Good appointment. BP, weight gain, and hb were all good. Asked about some pains I've been experiencing. Doc thinks that it's ligament pains and scar tissue stretching. Makes me feel better. U/S has been set!!
3.11.10 20 Week U/S IT'S A BOY!!
3.25.10 Good appointment. BP, hb (147 bpm), and weight gain (+4 lbs) were good. I'm up 17 lbs from prepregnancy weight. Scheduled my 3D u/s for next appointment!
4.22.10 Ok appointment. I'm up another 6 lbs (total of 23), hb was good, although Cam gave the doctor a run for her money trying to find it. My bp was normal (Which was a good thing. It had been 94/58 at school and I nearly passed out). I passed my glucose test by 1 point, but have low iron. I got to see Cameron via 3D u/s. It was incredible!! I'm now on to 2 week appointments!
5.6.10 Good appointment....Up another 4 lbs., Cam's hb was good, bp was normal, and my belly measured right on. We schedule my u/s for July 23 and we discussed my birth plan. Most of the items I posted doctor was ok with....only a few things I have to consider changing. Now it's just hoping that the nursing staff is as ok with it as the doctor was when the big day rolls around. Yay!
6.3.10 Good appointment. Up another 3 lbs, Cam's hb was 130 bpm, and my belly measured right now. Confirmed date and time of c/s: July 23 at 8 AM. Everything was good!
6.15.10 Good appointment. Up another lbs, Cam's hb was in the 140's. Doctor (not mine, but a different one in the office) did ask twice how far I was and measured me twice, but other than that didn't say anything. I go back in 2 weeks Smile
7.1.10 Good appointment. Up another 4 lbs ( Sad ) BP was good, Cam's hb was good, and urine looked good. Belly measured right on, Cam is head down and estimated to be around 6 lbs. I had my GBS test, and will get the results next time, and was checked for dialation. No dialation, but I am starting to thin and soften. I go back in a week. Yay!

Here's how the nursery looks before it's finished:

Pics of the nursery after it's finished:

Prepregnancy-136 lbs

(3.25.10) 21w6d-154 lbs

Hello, my name is Kari. I have been married to my best friend since May 27, 2006. We started dating when we were just 15 and 16 and have been together ever since. We had a beautiful little girl 4/5/07 right smack dab in the middle of nursing school (don't recommend taking OB/GYN while pregnant lol) I am currently an RN in an orthopaedic surgeon's office. We are now expecting baby number 2! EDD is July 30th, 2010, so a-board-hopping-I-will-go!

YAY! I am so glad to be here with you!! My dh (Dave) and I had a consultation appointment with our RE on Nov. 16th, but found out on the 21st that we wouldn't needed their assistance after all! We've been married for five years and have a beautiful daughter (Kristy) who is 20 months old. I was a special education teacher for students with learning disabilities for six and a half years before having my dd. I have been blessed to be a stay at home mommy since she's been born. Smile Looking forward to getting to know you all more!


Well originally it was AUGST 1st but after my u/s it could be JULY 24th --We shall see!




1st appointment:
December 22nd, hoping for an u/s to see my LO's heartbeat & pics! mDidn't see my little one on this appointment, she doesn't have the u/s machine at her office. We did get the paperwork started for my 1st u/s though! I also got all my blood work done! Things started off pretty well!

1st ultrasound:
January 13th, it was amazing!! We went to a place that specializes in them, so it was awesome! The technician was probably on my belly for about 45 minutes! My dh and dd came with and it was just so much fun! She was able to really zoom in on our little one and gave us a cd with lots of pics and little video clips. The baby was measuring at 12w 4d even though I was currently 11w 3d; so the due date could possibly move up to July 24th instead of Aug. 1st...will wait and see what my OB says. Oh...heart rate was 164.

2nd appointment:
January 19th, it was pretty good. Everything is looking great so far, and she was able to find the heartbeat as soon as she put the doppler on, she said it was in the 150s. The only downside of the appointment was that she didn't have the u/s results in her files yet---so she couldn't really tell me if we just have a bigger baby on our hands or if the due date has changed. Will hopefully call tomorrow to find out (Jan. 25). I've gained 7 lbs since being preggo...I'm okay with that. LOL!

Finally did some Chinese calendar tests today (Jan. 24)--since I'm officially in my 2nd trimester!! Most of the tests say it's a BOY! I'm excited for either one though, if we do have a girl then I'm thinking we'd try at least one more time. Wink

Baby #2!!!

Hi girls! I'm excited to be with all of you! My name's Lori and I have a daughter named Adelaide (Addie). I was a writer for 3 years, but I retired in March 09 to be a full-time mom.

I've been married for almost 5 years to DH Sam, and we moved from Utah to the NW and bought our first home this past summer (2010). I graduated with a BA in English at BYU, and my husband graduated with his master's in Information Systems April 09.

I am so excited to be a part of this group! This is our third child and it seems like the first! I am not sure why... maybe since it has been about 3 years. I have been married for 5 years to my wonderful husband, John. We have two girls already. Emma is 4 and Gracie is almost three (Jan 2nd). We are so excited to have three! I am a stay at home mom as well as the president of a new service chapter at the Children's Hospital in Denver. Our group does fundraising for books as well as providing guest readers at the hospital. Before my girls, I was a teacher, literacy coach, and working on my principal's license. Now, I love being home with my girls. Smile

Hi everyone!!! I am so excited to be here. My name is Mandy and my DH is Dave. We have been married for almost a year and a half and have a DD who is almost 9 months old. I can't wait for these next wonderful 9 months!!

August 2, 2010

December 10th @ 1pm - Calculated due date to be 8/2/10 (changed from my prediction of 8/10/10 based on my longest cycle of 36 days)

January 4th @ 10am - Tried to find heartbeat but couldn't....hopefully it was just too early or the little bean was just hiding

January 18th @ 8:50am - Found the heartbeat immediately. Yay!! Looks like we are having a girl cause the heartrate was 172 bpm!!!

February 16th @ 10:40am - Boring but good check up. Heartrate was 160 bpm.

March 15th @ 8:00am - Ultrasound!!!! It's a BOY!!! Unfortunately he has bilateral choroid plexus cysts. Hopefully these will go away on their own soon.

April 12th @ 8:30am - Quick and easy appointment. Heartrate 142bpm.

May 10th @ 9:30am - Found out that I passed my glucose test!!! Yay!!! DJ's heartrate was 144. I am up 8.8lbs since last appointment (YIKES!!).

May 24th @ 8:00am - The cysts were gone!!! Yay!!! And he was measuring right on track.

June 8th @ 9:00am - Stubborn baby boy was now head up (he was head down at last appointment). Doctor said we will have another u/s at 36-37 weeks to check size and position. Will try to manually flip him if he is still being stubborn. Student doctor made DJ mad by poking at his head so his heartrate was 166!!

June 24th @ 2:30pm - Stubborn baby boy is now supposedly head down...hopefully he will stay that way. His heartrate was 140 and everything else was good.

Next appointment July 8th @ 4:30pm - Will do group B strep culture.

Hi Girls! I'm Niki, and I am so excited to be here! I've been married to my husband Danny since March of 2008, but we've been together since Feb. of 2003. We started trying after we got married and it's been a long road (I have PCOS)! I finally got my BFP with IVF, then with an FET. My very early EDD is Aug. 11, 2010. This is our first, so I really can't wait to get into creating a space, meeting you ladies and sharing! It's all so exciting to us!!

Below are some pics of DH and I. I will post more to come, and some of my beloved furbaby friends. I have a Min Pin named Macho and a beautiful long haired cat named Cali~

Watergal's space is reserved.

I'm a 33 year old who will soon be a single mother by choice.

This hard won BFP followed 10 months of fertility treatment with 6 unmedicated
IUI using donor sperm, 2 cancelled cycles due to early ovulation and one cancelled cycle to have an ovarian polyp removed. My 6th cycle resulted in a chemical pregnancy.

After one month of imposed downtime I started on Clomid in November. On CD 10 I had two beautiful follicles, 21 and 23 mm respectively. I triggered that night and had an IUI on the 12th. I got my first BFP 11 dpIUI.

confirmatory bloodwork, 27 November 2009
EDD 5 August 2010

I should find out tomorrow when my ultrasound will be. 2 follicles equals?

BFP on 11/29/09 (11dpiui)

We've been TTC #1 for almost 3 years. I have diminished ovarian reserve (high FSH). We've tried 5 cycles of Femara (2 with IUI), 1 cycle of Clomid, 2 IVFs (neither made it to transfer), and acupuncture. With the help of Follistim/IUI we finally got a BFP yesterday. First beta is 12/2/09

I'll add more later when this becomes real to me!

12/2/09: beta #1 = 82 (hoping for 131 or higher on Fri.)
12/4/09: beta #2 = 271 (YAY!!!)
12/22/09: first u/s: hb 131 bpm
1/5/10: 2nd u/s: hb 173 bpm; CRL 2.27cm
2/4/10: After missing our ob appt. three times due to bad weather we finally made it! Met our ob and heard the heartbeat again at 13w1d
3/4/10: 2nd ob appt. scheduled
3/18/10: level II u/s; baby BOY looks healthy (measuring 5 days ahead)
4/15/10: gained 10 pounds since I started going to ob; everything is on track
5/13/10: passed the glucose test; weight gain is 15 pounds
6/3/10: weight hasn't changed, but baby boy is measuring a few weeks ahead; ob wants an u/s to check fluid and baby's size
6/16/10: u/s to check fluid and baby's size; all is well, but baby is BIG (estimated 5 pounds)
7/14/10: another u/s to check baby's size; weight estimated at 7lb 12oz; starting weekly checks and nsts
7/21/10: nst and cervical check (1cm/70% effaced); trace protein in urine and really swollen ankles/feet, but bp is good

Me: Amber/24
DH: Chris/34
DS: Mason/15 months
EDD: August 23

I'm Amber, DH is Chris and we are expecting #2! We've been together since Dec/04, married since Dec. 15/06. We got a BFP in Feb/08 but unfortunately 2 months later, that April, I suffered a m/c at 13 weeks, and it was 2 months before the bleeding/spotting completely stopped. Thankfully it wasn't very long before I got my second BFP in Aug/08. I had a very easy pregnancy and on Apr. 21/09 at 9:46 pm we welcomed Mason Christopher via c-section. Shortly before Mason was born DH who was a Chef at a restaurant decided to change careers to something a little more stable so he joined the Canadian Forces. When Mason was 3 months old he left for his 14 week basic training. We decided that when he got home in Nov we would start TTC a sibling for Mason. I wanted them to be around 18 months apart, and since I was still nursing and hadn't had a PP period I had no idea how long it would take us this time around. DH came home Nov. 6 and on Dec. 10 we got our BFP! I had an ultrasound to date and our EDD is Aug 23. We are so thrilled and excited to add to our little family.

Our wedding day and DH's graduation from Basic Training

Mason just born and Mason at 9 months

Jan. 6 - Dating ultrasound. Saw blip and HB (160s) Got an EDD of August 23
Feb. 8 - 12 week prenatal appt. Baby hb/170's. Weight/126 lbs. Boring paperwork stuff, bp good.
Feb. 25 - Went in for early pregnancy bloodwork. Gave 5 vials of blood and peed in a cup.
Mar. 8 - 16 week prenatal appt. Baby hb/150's. Weight/131 lbs. FH measuring 17 cm. Pap done. Results of bloodwork came back, thyroid a little high, some blood in my urine, nothing to be concerned about at this point.
Mar. 29 - Anatomy ultrasound revealed an active, healthy looking, boy.
Apr. 6 - 20 week prenatal appt. Baby hb/153. Weight/138 lbs. FH measuring 21 cm, bp good. Pap results normal, u/s results normal with baby measuring 4-5 days ahead, but no change in EDD.
Apr. 20 - First meeting with an OB. Baby hb/160's. Weight/144.7 lbs. FH measuring fine, bp good, urine fine. Went over the report from my last delivery and decided that unless any complications arise I should be able to attempt a VBAC, but I would be on a very short leash and monitored very closely due to the closeness of my deliveries.
May 4 - 24 week prenatal appt. Baby hb/146. Weight/144 lbs. FH measuring 25.5 cm. Urine and bp both good.
June 1 - 28 week prenatal appt. Baby hb/142. Weight/153 lbs. FH measuring 30 cm, urine, and bp all good. Baby is head down.

June 15 - 30 week prenatal appt. Baby hb/133. Weight/152 lbs. Bloodwork came back with low iron, so I'm on supplements. Passed my GD test. FH measuring 31 cm, urine and bp all good. Wants me to have blood drawn again in a few weeks to be sure my iron is going up.
June 28 - 32 week prenatal appt. Baby hb/144. Weight/152 lbs. Urine and bp fine. FH measuring 33 cm. Baby is head down.

July 29 - 36 week OB appt. Baby hb/135-140. Weight/155 lbs. FH measuring 38 cm. Urine & bp fine, iron is up but still on the low side. Did GBS swab, will get results next week.
Aug 4 - 37 week OB appt. Baby hb unknown. Weight/159 lbs. FH measuring 38 cm, urine and bp fine. GBS results came back positive. Baby had an irregular hb so I was sent for an NST which was good enough to send me home.
Aug 11 - 38 week OB appt. Baby hb/130's. Weight/158 lbs. FH, urine and bp fine. Got checked so I could get the green light to travel, am 3 cm dilated and very thin. Baby hb still irregular, sent for a BPP/NST, everything still looks good aside from the skip.

Random Stop at Dr's - 2/19 - Thought I had a UTI, but do not. Surprised they offered to check HB again...150 Smile
About 15 weeks...I *think* I'm feeling baby move...sometimes like a little tap, others like a flutter!!!
Week 16 - Definitely feeling what I think is baby - more consistent flutters, taps and pressure Smile
3rd OB Appt & BIG U/S!!!-3/15 - I'TS A BOY!!!! We are so thrilled! I thought there was a little man in there all along, so I guess maternal instincts can be right. The U/S showed a perfectly healthly baby, with great measurments. He's in the 50th percentile and weighs 7 ounces. Heartbeat was about 145 during the ultrasound and bounced up to 155-160 during my OB appt that followed, showing that he's nice and active in there. Doctor confirmed that what I am feeling is defintiely baby, it can't be the stomach or gas or anything else because baby has pushed all of that stuff out of the way and up and around - so anything that i feel between my pelvis and belly button is little Enzo!
4th OB Appt - 4/12 - Good, quick appt. Weight is good, BP is good, got all of the stuff for the glucose test. We got to quickly hear Enzo's HB and it sounds nice and strong. Midwife Martha said that he had the hiccups in there, so now I'm dying to feel them! One cool new development is that if I stare at my stomach for long enough, I can see it move! Enzo's quite active in there!
4/22 - Woke up to some brownish and then pink spotting. Had an ultrasound to check things out and saw the doctor. Apparently my placenta is separated just a teeny bit from my uterus. I'm on pelvic rest, no lifting, no traveling, and have been instructed to take it easy for the next few weeks. I go back next week and then the week after again to get checked out. Fingers crosses and saying my prayers that things don't get worse and everything works out just fine with baby Enzo!
4/29 - Quick checkup, heard Enzo's HB which sounded good. Spotting has stopped, which is encouraging. All good news...we'll find out more at the U/S next week.
5/3 - Had been having some cramping and very bad lower back pain, which they say is probably due to a combination of dehydration as well as my minor placenta issues. Had another U/S to check things out, and the placenta issues look like they are definitely resolving. The separation is not getting worse and everything looked better! All good news, and I don't go back now until 28 weeks. Then bi-weekly appts begin! Yay!
6/4 - GREAT appt. Weight is exactly 150, up 22 lbs from pre-pregnancy and doctor says my weight, measurements, and BP are perfect. Baby's heartbeat was loud and strong and she's pretty sure he's head down. Also, I passed my glucose test, but could afford to eat more RED MEAT! A dream come true for a carnivore like myself. Every other week appointments start now! Yippee!

1/25 First midwife appt. Everything on track! Baby heartrate 175. Here's baby's first pic!
2/24 Heard the heartbeat for a quick minute! Everything sounds normal!
3/23 "BIG" Ultrasound today! Baby is 7 oz. and measuring right on track! Fingers and toes are all accounted for! Yes! Still keeping that gender a surprise!

4/19 Heard the heartbeat loud and clear today. Weight is normal, belly measurement is normal, and cervix is closed and narrow. 19 more weeks to go!
5/21 14 weeks to go! Measuring "big" but nothing to worry about it. Everything seems to still be on track! Need to take the jelly bean test before I go back in June!
5/24 SIL, Jenna, brought us in for some 3D ultrasounds! So cool!

6/7 Met with our Pediatrician! She is great and I am glad that we see eye-to-eye on a lot of important things! Check that off the to-do list!
6/17 Another check-up and this time my mom got to come! Heartbeat sounds good as usual and I am still measuring on track...not too big and not too small!
7/2 On a 2-week schedule now for visits. Joan showed me how to feel what body parts are what. Pretty cool. Head is down and in the "ready" position!
7/19 Things are still good. Baby was kicking Joan as she tried to listen to the heartbeat. Smile
8/2 Here we go with weekly visits in the birth month! OK...so maybe Baby V will be coming in September, but still excited to make it to August! 70% effaced! Sounds good!
8/9 Quick appointment! No new progress "down there". Baby will probably keep cooking until that due date! Officially full-term today at 37 weeks! Heartrate was normal at 120...boy??? GBS negative!
8/16 38 week appt and by-passed getting checked. Haven't had any contractions and baby still seems high. Dr. Jackie agreed and said that my labor may, statistically speaking, be like my mother's...overdue, but less than 12 hours. I'll take it Smile

Fuzzi Bunz at Nurtured Family

12-1-09 Everything was wonderful got to see a healthy bean forming right there in my belly Length-3.19cm HB- 167 Gest- 11w 0d

1-2-10 Another good appt. got to hear the HB again a little lower this time 157 but All good in the belly hood. Scheduled Gender scan for 3-2-10!!

2-11-10 Scary news today took the AFP test last dr.s appt. it came back with markers for Downs will see specialist in Dallas soon

2-15-10 Specialist appt. today Doc. said I have less than 1% chance of LO having downs :pinkelephant: Happy dance for that. Got to see the U/s got me a good looking kid cookin in there. HB- 160 Length- 5+ inches Gest- 17 wks Doc said it looks like a little boy! Doc wants us back on the 3-8-10 heart was still to small to see all 4 chambers. Gonna do an Echo and a second lvl 2 U/s

3-2-10 Everything went great! Didn't really need to do a gender scan seeing as the specialist already told us we are having a boy but my OB let us do one just for fun! I did manage to gain some weight this time around +5 lbs. So doc didn't jump me this time! Got to have the whole U/s put on dvd which is awsomeness in its self. Couldn't have asked for a better Visit.

3-8-10 All in all a wonderful appt. the cardiologist said his little heart looks perfect!Jayden is measuring almost right on schedule he's showing just a few days ahead and weighting 13oz. I shouldn't have to go back to the geneticist any more but my OB may send me back Late during my pregnancy just to do a follow up with the cardio.

3-30-10 An uneventful appointement Baby's hb 148 bmp. Belly measuring 24 wks.

4-27-10 A fairly good apt. Lost 4 lbs. Dr. not happy. Jaydens heart beat 157. Passed one hr. glucose. Moved to every 2 wk.s for apts. Dr. said due to soft markers from AFP test will move up to one a wks. apt.s at 32 wks. Will have a weight check on Jayden at next apt. due to my weight loss.

5-11-10 Weight was up 5 lbs which made Dr. Happy Jayden's Hb was in the 150's he weighted in at 2.14 lbs. Will start one a wk appts. after the 25th.

5-25-10 a nice and boring appt. was down another 2 lbs. can't seem to keep weight on for some reason. Belly measured right at 31 wks. Jayden's hb was in the 140's. Next u/s on 6/3/10.

6-3-10 Good visit. Back up 2 lbs. Jaydens hab was in the 140's. all measurements are right on track @ 32 wks.

6-11-10 very uneventful didn't gain but didn't loose any weight. My bp and urin were fine. Jaydens hb was 142. My AFL was well within normal levels. So far so good. Little man is head down still. They put me on Reglan for my cronic acid reflux which was causing me to :puke: . We will get another weight on Jayden on 6/18

6-18-10 ** coming soon **

1/2/10- +1 total gain
3/2/10- +5 = 6 lbs total gain
3/30/10 +3= 9 lbs total gain
4/27/10 -4 = 5 lbs. total gain
5/11/10 +6 = 11 lbs. total gain
5/25/10 -2 = 9 lbs. total gain
