The line on my test that made it positive completely faded after a day or 2 so I don't have a picture of it to post on here. THe only pic I have is on my phone. I will give some back story though.
My name is Lindy. Dh is Anthony. We have 2 girls already. This was our first cycle of TTC and I can't believe it happened already. I wasn't expecting to get preggo this cycle. In fact, I was hoping it would be no earlier than next cycle but figured we'd try anyways. I am due May 1st. We will NOT find out the sex of the baby until it is born but we are hoping for a boy. We used the Shettles method this cycle so fingers crossed.
HH9M to those of you who are pregnant and I can't wait until we get our board established with lots and lots of BFP's!!!

Looking like it might have been a chemical pregnancy.

DH and I are high school sweethearts, we started dating in February 1997. I have been in love with the boy since the tender age of 16!! We have 2 boys Aidan Connor (10/10/08 ) and Gavin Benjamin (2/24/10). DS1 was conceived during a TTC break, as I was planning a mission trip out of the country. DS2 was a COMPLETE OOPS! They are the sweetest, most loving little boys ever and I couldn't imagine life without them and we are super excited about adding a third blessing to the mix! We were actually TTC this time, 1st cycle was a charm! I feel very blessed by that! We (I) are really hoping for a girl this time, but will love another little guy just the same! Looking forward to this journey with all of you other lovely Mommies! HH9M to us all!
Friday, August 26th- Beta-52; Progesterone-13.1
Wednesday, August 31st- Beta-471; Progesterone-12.5
Friday, September 23rd-First appointment and ultrasound at 8 weeks.
9/23 appt update - We got our first peek at our wee little babe today and its measurements were right on target at 8 weeks exactly, for an official EDD of May 4th but we are looking at a delivery date of April 25th due to repeat c-section. He wants to look at baby again on u/s in 2 weeks just to make sure everything is going well and we get past that critical 10 week point. He also said that at our appt. in 2 weeks, when I schedule my next appt. for 4 weeks later that he would do another u/s and would probably be able to tell us the gender!!!! I. LOVE.THAT.MAN!!
Thursday, October 6-10 week u/s just to get another sneak peek at baby and make sure all is well. Have I mentioned that I LOVE my doctor?!?!
September 7, 2011- 5 weeks 5 days and still not much nausea to speak of. The only time I get nauseated is when I get really hungry. Wondering if I am going to get lucky this time or am I going to get hit by MS train in a day or two??

Just found out that we're expecting baby #3 and am so excited! EDD is May 4, 2012. My husband and I got married in 2004 and have 2 kids - daughter, Finley (3/28/08 and son, Graham (4/8/10). We're looking forward to adding a third to the mix, but a little nervous. We planned to start TTC this winter, but it happened a little sooner! I don't think we'll find out the sex and we don't care either way since we already have one of each! Looking forward to getting to know all of you over the next 9 months!

Got my BFP on 8/25
My name is Angel, Im 26 years old!! I am the youngest of 5 kids. I work as a Manager at Good ole Pizza Hut. I was diagnosed with PCOS officially in 2004 after my first m/c. My journey to motherhood has been a struggle but i think that helps me appreciate little things people tend to not enjoy while pregnant. I met my husband in 2007. We were introduced from my brother and werent supposed to be more than "just friends" We welcomed our first child together 10-29-09. Ive been apart of Pregnanct.org since July 2003 on and off. My November 09 mommies are a great bunch of ladies and i hope to form more friendships. I will up date this as we go!!
Aug 26: had blood work done beta at 889 and u/s showing almost nothing. Im about 3 weeks. Go back Weds for 2nd us
Hello! I'm Laura! I've been married to Steven since May 27, 2006. We TTC for 14 months (6 months of Clomid, blah!) in order to get our sweet baby Claire. Claire was born January 1, 2011. She weighed 5lb, 15oz and was 19.5" long. Imagine our SURPRISE when we got pregnant our first month not being careful. God is good and we are so blessed! We are so very excited!
My Pregnancy with Claire
Claire's Birth Story
I just like seeing the pretty "pregnant" line. I'm done testing now.
9/2/11: DH and I Skyped with his parents. DH said, "Well, we have some news..." and my FIL finished with, "Laura's pregnant again!" DH said, "Yep, Claire's going to be a big sister!" Then my MIL clued into the conversation and said, "I thought y'all were gonna say that y'all bought a house!" They're pretty excited!
9/3/11: I called my Mom in a panic because I had some brown spotting. I freaked out even though it was very minimal. She was so excited and then reassured me that as long as it was brown, that I'd be okay. She put my Daddy on the phone and I said, "Well, we got a surprise this week... Claire's going to be a big sister!" Daddy responded with giggles then asked, "Did you forget a pill or something?!?" in which I heard my Mom yell "DAVID!!!" in the background! So hilarious! My parents are super excited about another grandchild!
9/4/11: Today we went to my parents' house and shared the news with my Mamaw. I was holding Claire and said, "Mamaw, Claire wants you to know that she's gonna be a big sister!" My Mamaw's face went blank and she turned around and said, "David, please walk me to a chair, I think I'm about to faint." Then her legs started wobbling. That lasted about 1 minute (seemed a LOT longer at the moment) and then Mamaw started giggling. She's so silly that she faked it all! Scared me half to death! She's excited but can't believe it's so soon!

9/07/11: Nurse called to report beta #2 numbers. Mentioned the possibility of twins.
9/12/11: A tiny bit of brown spotting. Nurse moved my u/s to this Wednesday.
9/16/11: First day in my maternity clothes! So soon?!?
9/30/11: Saw the heart beating for the 1st time!
10/28/11: It's a BOY! (NT Scan showed a boy nub!) Heard HB on home doppler
11/30/11: Cooper is still a BOY! I had an u/s to check my placenta location due to some intense pressure. Dr. P says it's from having back-to-back pregnancies. All looks healthy!

A little bit about us:
Mike and I have been together 10 years (in Sept. 2011) and married for 6. He is working on a Masters in Social Work and I practice Elder Law for a private attorney. We live in Mid-coast Maine.
We have been on the TTC journey for 3.5 years. We tried everything from trying intensely to hardly trying at all, to Clomid. Finally we got our first BFP in Feb. 2011, only to lose that pregnancy at 10w4d in April 2011. After a crazy busy summer, we find ourselves pregnant again!
