Mindy, 30, married to Andy, 30, on halloween 2003. Violet was born on april 24th at 9:51 am frank breech at home!! this LO was a HUGE oops and surprise but slowly we are getting used to the idea of it.

got my bfp on Wed jan 14, and sat the 17th, sun the 18th, and mon the 19th. not really sure when i ovulated, i missed 3 temps this cycle and wouldn't you know it, thats when it happened.

I'm here because Violet was a week late, so i'm assuming this one will be late too! plus I really really want an October baby!!!


in order from 10dpo i tested every OTHER day and the last one was at the DR. office at 30dpo WOW its really been that long already?!?!

After two years of TTC, a chemical pregnancy and an ectopic, followed by a diagnosis of MTHFR, DH and I are happy to announce our growing "Lil Pumpkin"!

1/27/09 - BFP at 14 DPO, Estimated Due Date 10/6/09
Photobucket

1/30/09 - First Appt: Saw a sac at just the right place, high in my uterus. Pumpkin is definitely not going to cause us an ectopic! Great news! Next Sono scheduled for mid-February.

2/1/09 - Got more good news. My first two beta results:
Friday, 1/30 - 263
Monday, 2/1 - 1163
Here's hoping for nothing but positive news from now on!

2/12/09 - MS begins. It is shockingly HORRIBLE, but I'm glad to know the Pumpkin seed is probably healthy.

2/13/09 - Second Sono. The Pumpkin Seedling is measuring 5w5d. New due date of October 11. HB of 141.
Photobucket

2/27/09 - Third Sono. The Pumpkin Seed (now big enough to have graduated from being a Seedling) measured 8w3d which puts our dd back to October 6. HB of 175.
Photobucket

3/10/09 - After missing 4 1/2 days of work over the last 6 work days due to severe morning sickness, I broke down and had my OB write me a prescription for Zofran. I hope it's the miracle I need. I've been going insane with vomit!

3/27/09 - Heard Pumpkin's HB at OB visit today. 160bpm. What a miraculous event!

3/31/09 - Had first trimeter screeing at peri's office. Pumpkin measuring on target and has HB of 173. Dr. said all measurements are beautiful. Smile

13 w 13 w 13w hand

4/3/09 - Heard from genetics counselor at peri's office. Results are in from NT scan. Pumpkin is at a significantly higher risk (1:80, as opposed to 1:400) of having Downs syndrome. Next step - meet to discuss testing options. What a shocking and scary time.

4/9/09 - Decided not to go forward with an amnio (not worth the risk of m/c for us) or further blood screen (only 3% more accurate than NT scan done on 3/31.) I'm feeling better and more positive as time moves on. I'm loving the Pumpkin and wearing maternity jeans!

4/30/09 - It's a GIRL!!

5/12/09 - Had follow-up u/s at peri's today. Pumpkin is looking great and is showing absolutely no signs of Downs. The U/S measurements combined with our last test results now give us a 1:306 chance of Downs. We are so relieved. However, our chance of placental abruption after 32 weeks went up, so bedrest may be in my future this summer.

6/4/09 - My colleagues threw me a rockin' Baby Shower today! It was amazing. We got fabulous gifts for our new little one and feel so blessed to have such wonderful people supporting us. I also made my first "emergency" appt. with my OB this morning -- seems Pumpkin has my ligaments stretching so much that I felt pain over the last couple of days. So glad it's nothing more serious! Smile

6/9/09 - Saw peri today. The baby is measuring 1lb 2oz, which is right on target. Things are going well with her! Mommy, on the other hand, has carpal tunnel and REALLY wishes she didn't!!!

7/7/09 - Another ultrasound a the peri's office. Baby is still measuring on target - 2.5lbs. One of her kidneys is slightly enlarged but the dr. reassured me if it is still enlarged at birth we will put her on antibiotics and all will be well. I'm hoping to get my scanner working to put some of these great profile pics up soon!!

7/27/09 - Finally finished painting the nursery!
Photobucket

9/18/09 - Since the last post I've been put on modified bedrest at home due to low amniotic fluid. We've also had two echocardiograms due to our baby's possible enlarged heart. Today, we're feeling good about everything. The fluid has managed to stay stable at the "lower end of normal" and two cardiologists believe her heart will be okay soon after birth.
Yesterday, we worked with my OB to plan our induction date. (None of the doctors think it would be a good idea to deliver after our due date.) We're all set for 9/30, if she doesn't get antsy and show up earlier. We're so excited! We'll be meeting our little girl in less than two weeks!!

I am reserving my place :)

After 4 years, Clomid, 2 IUI's, 3 cancelled IVF cycles, 2 BFN FETs and 8 months of acupuncture/Chinese herbs, I am FINALLY pregnant..... NATURALLY!!!

Got my BFP on January 20th and my EDD is October 6th!

Betas:

Jan 21st - 13 DPO - 80
Jan 24th - 16 DPO - 198
Jan 27th - 19 DPO - 1594
Feb 2nd - 25DPO - 14241

Feb 2nd - bleeding, ER visit, a script for progesterone and 5 days ordered bedrest, had scan and saw sac and fetal pole (5w4d)
Feb 4th - a case of 5th's Disease discovered at the school where I work, got bloodtest for the antibodies (a 6 day turnaround for the results as the test is done in South Africa) - off work for a week
Feb 8th - follow-up scan 6w3d - saw heartbeat (109bpm!)
Feb 15th - went back to school although test results still not back... Found out 2 more cases in school - sent home again Sad
Feb 17th - Found out lab in South Africa ran out of reagent to do the test and it will take 6 more days! Went in for another 5th's bloodtest and it was sent to another lab in London - supposed to be a 2 day turnaround for results....
Feb 17th - First antenatal appmt - Gave LOTS of blood for a myriad of tests, got weighed and tested for sugar and protein in urine - discussed birth options, choice of OB's (my husband's company only covers certain dr's and hospitals) and got tons of written info.
Feb 19th - still no test results....
Feb 21st - Dr. called lab in London and they promised to do it first thing on Monday - 2 day turnaround - YEAH, RIGHT!!!
Feb 23rd - still off work and waiting for results.....
Feb 24th - FINALLY got results - I'm immune - both short and long-term! no more 5th's tests! yeah!
Mar 11th - 11 week scan - baby measured 6 days smaller but he/she was moving around like crazy and the heartbeat was 171bpm! Was asked to return in 2 weeks for another scan and to do NT measurements.
Mar 24th - appointment with hospital doctor to register as 'high risk', only because of my age - 39, saw baby again, heartbeat was 171bpm
Mar 25th - NT scan - this time everything was 'perfect'! all measurements were in the normal range and initial Down's risk was 1 in 1297, mostly based on my age again! Due date adjusted to October 6th.

Mar 31st - met with dr. to discuss results of triple test - all is great - very low risk of down's (1 in 1040, mostly based on age) and trisomies.
Apr 15th - first appointment with OB - all went well and baby is growing on target
April to the end of Aug - LOTS of appointments! Decided not to find out the sex....
July 8th - DH came home and announced he wanted to know the sex so we looked at the last scan report.... We were THRILLED to find out we're having a GIRL!!!!!!
July 10th - We FINALLY decided to call our daughter.... Lexie Grace H**** Now she has an identity!
July 29th - 30 week scan - all looks great!

And baby bump at 32 weeks 2 days....

Birth Story

Ethan Bradley
Born 10-7-2009, 3:17 am
8 lbs. 5.8 oz. 19 inches long

On Tuesday night at 10:30 pm I went to the bathroom and when I sat down I felt a little gush. It was clear but it wasn’t as much as I had expected so I called L & D and told them that I think my water broke but it wasn’t much. The nurse told me to lay down for 10-15 minutes and call back to let them know if it was leaking. I called Tom and told him to come home from work since he had an hour drive. I called L & D back and told them that I had no leaking. They asked if I was having contractions and I said that I didn’t think so because the pain was only in my lower back. I reminded them that I had been dilated to 4 cm for the past 6 days. At 11:20 pm DH got home and we both took showers. The pain in my lower back continued to get much worse and I was very uncomfortable by the time I got out of the shower. Tom thought that we better go to the hospital and I kept telling him that they didn’t want me to come if I wasn’t having contractions. I called L & D again and told them that I have tried heat, ice, moving positions, taking a shower, and nothing has helped my lower back pain. They suggested that I try a warm bath because I still didn’t feel like I was having contractions. I told them that I was coming in and that I at least wanted to be put on a monitor to see if I was having contractions. They said that if I feel that I needed to come in then I should. We packed the car and left our house around 1:00 am. The 1 hour ride to the hospital was very uncomfortable. I was in so much pain that no matter how I sat in the car the pain just seemed to get worse. When we got to the hospital at 1:55 am I was taken to L & D in a wheel chair, taken to a room, and changed into a gown. The nurse checked me and I was dilated to 7 cm and my contractions were 2 minutes apart on the monitor! The nurse asked if I wanted anything for pain and I said that I wasn’t planning on it but something may help. They put a dose of pain medication in my IV. I breathed through contractions for about a half hour. The nurse said that it would be time to push soon. Then the nurse called the doctor in and he waited for a bit and then had to leave and deliver another baby. He returned and I began to push. My blood pressure was high so they used a catheter to get a urine sample. The baby’s head started to crown and the dr. decided that I needed an episiotomy so he made a medium cut. I pushed for about 45 minutes total and finally Ethan Bradley had arrived at 3:17 am! The dr. put him on my chest and Tom cut the umbilical cord. Ethan cried on and off for the first few hours. He has great lungs! After 4 ½ years of heartache we finally have our little boy! He is a blessing from God and the answer to our prayers! There was protein in my urine so I was treated for pre eclampsia with a medication in my IV for the first 12 hours following delivery. Ethan and I are doing well and DH and I cherish every moment that we have to spend with him!

8 weeks 3 days: Measuring 9 weeks, Heartbeat 165 bpm. Baby wiggled around for us to see.
Changed EDD to match u/s measurements.


13 weeks: Heartbeat 159 bpm, gained 4 lbs. Scheduled big u/s for April 30th.
17 weeks: Gender U/S reveals that she is a GIRL! All her parts are present and perfect. Heartbeat 151 bpm.

I gained 4 lbs bringing the total up to 8 lbs so far.


21 weeks:Quick appointment, gained 10 lbs! :eek: baby was moving around so much it was hard to get the heartbeat on doppler so we didn't get an exact number.
25 weeks:Baby's heartrate good, gained more weight. Yuck.
28 weeks:I've passed my goal for weight gain already, I guess my body doesn't care what I want, up about 36 lbs so far. Baby is very active, heartrate in the 130's. Did GD test, will update with results later.
29 weeks:3D Ultrasound!!!


30 weeks:Great uneventful appointment. Gained 2 lbs. Baby's heartrate 127 bpm. Passed GD test, not anemic...all tests look good.

Notes
04.17.09 -- Felt Baby "flutter" for the first time
05.23.09 -- I feel my baby girl moving everyday now
06.04.09 -- DH felt her move for the first time
07.09.09 -- Addison has been breech the whole time so far... thought she was going to turn last night. I felt her kicks up higher but then she went back to the same spot.
07.23.09 -- Addison is head down AND feet down. Had the 4D Scan. I guess this explains why I only feel her movements really low & never high.
07.29.09 - 09.02.09 -- Child Birth Classes (every Wed) -- These were great! We really enjoyed them. We had a fantastic instructor.
08.11.09 -- BFing Class -- The instructor seemed to be knowledgable but was not passionate about teaching a full class.
09.09.09 -- Had a slip & fall getting out of my car at Kroger... It was raining and I couldn't see the slick substance in the parking lot. I caught myself on the car before I hit the parking lot but wow it hurt. I ended up doing a stretchy split & bruised my arm pretty good. But, all is well.
09.10.09 -- Had my first Internal Exam & bled for awhile afterwards.
09.11.09 -- Ended up having my first random contractions this evening. It took me awhile to figure out that's what was going on. At first, I thought my tummy was upset. Then I realized that I kept saying "Oh I don't feel well" at intervals. After that, I realized the pain was more like menstrual cramps with waves of pain. I drank some water and went to bed.
09.16.09 -- LAST DAY OF WORK!!! I ended up feeling like crap all day. I had more random contractions that got stronger as the day/evening went on. I was pretty miserable by bedtime and really didn't get much sleep b/c of the pain.
09.17.09 -- Woke up feeling like someone took a baseball bat to my abdomen. Sitting is very uncomfortable. Driving is very uncomfortable. I have quite a bit of pressure down low. I can tell Addison has dropped some. My OB appt went fine.
09.18.09 -- I'm still hurting in my abdomen. Random contractions about 10 min apart. Drank water and layed on the couch all day.
09.19.09 -- Still sore but random contractions have stopped. Still have pressure down low. Sitting is still uncomfortable.
09.25.09 -- Addison is really low. I think she's facing the correct direction b/c the movements I feel are different. Yesterday I felt what seemed to be punches towards my rectum (which was weird). My SIJ has started hurting when I sit. Still can't wear rings... too swollen.

Todd, Karlee, Caroline, and Kaden[/LEFT]

Important Dates:[/LEFT]
February 8, 2009: BFP 8 DPO

February 22, 2009: First Ultrasound. Found out it's TWINS!!!
February 26, 2009: 2nd Ultrasound. We have HEARTBEATS! 133 and 144 bpm. Music to a Mama's ears!
February 27, 2009: Treated in ER for dehydration
March 2, 2009: Back to ER for dehydration and low potassium.
March 6, 2009: PICC line placed to receive daily IV fluids at home for m/s.
March 23, 2009: PICC line is REMOVED! Yay!
March 24, 2009: Regular OB apt. Uterus measuring 14 wks. Lost 8 lbs total (way less than I expected)
March 31/April 1, 2009: Had some spotting.
April 2, 2009: U/S shows babies are fine. Subchorionic Hemorrhage which showed on 5/6 wk U/S looks slightly larger and closer to Baby "A".
April 4, 2009: Woke up in the middle of the night with major bleeding. U/S finds subchorionic hemorrhage has grown and spread. Put on strict bedrest.
April 9, 2009: Follow up OB. Lost another 8 lbs. SH doesn't seem to be any worse. Still on bedrest until next apt. Doc wants to up my m/s meds due to dehydration. Begin spotting which OB believes is the SH draining.
April 13, 2009: Vomiting blood. OB believes broken capilaries (sp?) in throat or esophogus due to extreme m/s. What fun. Pepcid added to Rx list. Spotting has continued uninterupted.
April 20, 2009: 13 week apt. No weight change. Measuring 18 weeks. Bleed is lower and closer to my cervix which explains the bleeding. Bumped to modified bedrest. Can now slowly increase my activity and adjust if bleeding increases.
May 1, 2009: The bleeding/spotting finally stopped after over 3 weeks!
May 7, 2009: 16 week U/S Baby "A" is a BOY! Baby "B" is a GIRL! We are thrilled. There is a mass of tissue that shouldn't be there. The tech thought it was an accessory placenta, but we have to wait until our next apt to hear from our OB.
May 22, 2009: 18 week apt: Gained back 6 lbs, measuring 23 weeks. Babies looked great! Doc confirmed diagnosis of accessory placenta - thinks may be cause of early bleeding. Still on pelvic rest. Ordered 20 week anatomy u/s!
June 5, 2009: 20 week u/s: babies both look great! They are definately a boy and girl. Baby Boy measured 20 w 2 d and Baby Girl measured 19 w 5 d. Both were estimated at 13 oz.
June 25, 2009: 23 week OB apt: gained back another 5 lbs, which puts me at a 5 lb loss to date. My doc is really happy that I am gaining, and my goal is/was 1 lb per week, so I'm right where I should be. I measured 28 cm. I have had some pressure the past few days that I can only describe as pressure on my bum. It's different from the achiness I felt when I was dilating with my other kids. My doc did a pelvic, as well as a trans-vag u/s. I was 4.0-4.2 cm and closed, which was great news. I received orders for my gd test as well as monthly u/s for the rest of my pg. I scheduled my 24 week u/s for next Thursday. Great apt! My next apt is in 3 weeks, then I start them every 2 weeks and will be having cervical checks at each apt. Wow! We're getting there!
July 2, 2009: 24 week u/s: Everything looked really good. Our baby girl measured 23w 5d and 1 lb 7 oz. Our little boy measured 24w 4d and 1 lb 8 oz. They were well within normal range. My cervix is down to 3 cm, but the tech said it isn't worrisome. I'm going to take it easy anyway.
July 2, 2009: Having mild contractions 3 minutes apart. Go to L&D for monitoring. Cervix is closed but some contrax showing up on monitor. Get shot of terbutaline to stop contrax. Couldn't get FFN because of vag u/s earlier in day. Sent home on modified bedrest.
July 4, 2009: Return to L&D for FFN and follow up monitoring. FFN is negative and no contrax show up on monitor. Babies look great.
July 16, 2009: 26 week OB: Gained 6 lbs, which equates to 2 lbs per week Yahoo My big-old belly measured 32 weeks, which is perfect. Both babies are now breech, and when we did the quick u/s they were face to face and it looked like they were chatting it up and having a grand old time. LOL. I have been under a great deal of stress the past week due to my daughter Caroline being diagnosed with a brain tumor, so I had her check me. My cervix is closed and the fact that the babies flipped means that I don't have heads pressing on my cervix so there is less risk of PTL. We talked a lot about plans for next month, since my daughter will likely have brain surgery. She said everything is looking perfect, and even though I'm now scheduled for every 2 weeks if everything continues I can skip an apt if I am out of town dealing with Caroline. I am scheduled for monthly u/s and have orders for my GD test. I am doing my best to stay off my feet unless absolutely necessary and drink gallons of water to ballance out all the stress right now.
July 31, 2009: 28 week OB Apt. Measured 36 weeks. Everything looks good! Iron is low, but GD was fine.
Same Day!: U/S: Baby Boy weighs 2 lbs 15 oz and baby girl 2 lbs 9 oz. He is still breech, but she is now transverse... again. Cervix is closed and 2.7 cm. Everything looks very good!
August 18, 2009: 30+ week OB Apt. Weight up 1 lb in two weeks, which is a little over 5 lbs from PP weight, although my doc is measuring my weight gain from when I bottomed out. That puts me at +21 lbs (since I originally lost 16). Both babies are once again breech. They are head to head and feet to feet. He has definately dropped lower, and I am soft and a fingertip dilated. My doc doesn't think it's likely that he will flip into a head down position in order for me to deliver vaginally, so she will probably do a c-sect at 38.5 weeks. This is a huge disappointment for me, since I have had very easy vaginal deliveries with my other babies. She did an FFN, since I will be traveling next week. It was negative! Dirol
September 3, 2009: I found a naturopath/chiropractor in my area that claims to be able to flip breech babies through adjustments, and at this point I'm willing to try anything. I went in, and she sayes that I am a good candidate. My blood pressure kept dropping during the treatment, as was evident by multiple dizzy spells. We scheduled sessions for every 2-3 days from now until d-day.
Same Day: I went in for my regular ultrasound, and my cervix was shortened. I also had a couple of major contractions, so I walked down the hall to the Family Birthing Center at the hospital to get checked out. I was 3-4 cm and actively contracting. Admitted, given first steroid shot and put on terbutaline (horrible stuff).
September 4, 2009: Given second steroid shot and bumped up to Magnesium, because contractions were strong, regular, and I progressed to 4cm. The mag gave me serious chest pain, so I was taken off and put back on terb.
September 11, 2009: Discharged home on strict bedrest.
September 19, 2009: Cheated big time, and went to Michael's for crafting supplies. The cash register broke while I was waiting in line, so I had to stand for about 15 minutes after already walking around the store for about half an hour. When I got home my back was aching and contractions started. Admitted to Family Birthing for observation.
September 20, 2009: Kellan born @ 8:27 am, 5 lbs 12 oz; Chloe @ 8:29 am, 5 lbs 1 oz both are in the NICU getting a little help breathing. I lost a lot of blood so am about to get 2 units.
September 25, 2009: Brought Chloe home from the NICU, but still spending all day there, since Kellan hasn't gotten the hang of eating yet. He's just too sleepy.
October 2, 2009: Brought Kellan home from the hospital!

I am reserving my spot. I don't have my camera with me, but I will put up pics asap. I took a test on Feb 1st and got a light positive. I took a 2nd test Feb 3rd and got a bright positive.
My 1st doctors appt is not scheduled until March 10th, which is too far away because I am already 6 weeks now. My Dr. is just to booked and too busy to actually take time the way he is suppose to. So I am now in the process of trying to find another doctor. My EDD is October 5, 09.

I'm Amanda and DH is Steve. We've been ttc since October 2008. I was diagnosed with PCOS in January 2009, and started Clomid. It worked! and I got my BFP after the first round!

5/29/2009
I was diagnosed with complete amnio-chorion separation, which caused congenital defects in the baby's legs. His left foot is clubbed and his right leg ends just above where the ankle would be. I'm now considered high risk for premature labor and umbilical cord problems. Watching baby's movements have become vital in knowing if our little one is doing ok.

5/31/09
Baby Stephen (or Charles) is moving lots today, yesterday too. He was kicking so much earlier, that DH and I just sat and watched my belly move! Everytime we saw a little punch or kick, we giggled.

Reserving my spot ...

BFP in September 08, M/C 11/12/08. We weren't really TTC (were told to wait at least 2 cycles) but low and behold, a week late gave me a BFP today! And it is DARK ... cautiously optimistic but happy as can be ...

Bonita's Space

Hi! My name is Bonita and welcome to my space. I am 27 and already have two precious little girls and just got my BFP!

March 12,2009March 26, 20009April 13, 2009

IT'S A GIRL!!!

Belly Pictures:

22W3D

Appointments:
March 2,2009 - Went in for an ultrasound. Saw a sack. Got beta's done. 4,800. progesterone 6.5. Started taking progesterone pills. Went back 2 days later for a follow up beta. 5,610. Waiting to see how things look at our next ultrasound March 12, 2009.

March 12,2009 - Went in for an ultrasound. It was WONDERFUL!! We got to see and hear the heartbeat! Everything looks great. We will go back for a follow up on March 26th.

March 26, 2009 - Went in for follow up ultrasound. Everything looks PERFECT! Baby is measuring behind still so new due date of November 2.

April 13, 2009 - I had some spotting over the weekend so I went in for a ultrasound this morning. Everything looked perfect and the baby was even waving at us! We still do not know why I was spotting, so I am on restricted activity for the next few days.

April 27, 2009 - I went in for my scheduled appointment. Everything looks great. Had an ultrasound on an old machine to see the heartbeat. The baby was looking right at me and had grown a lot. I did not get a picture. Next appointment in four weeks.

Family History
Hi, I'm Meagan! I have been married to Mike for 3 years. 4 months after we got married we were suprised to find out I was pregnant (I was on BC) we lost that sweet little one at 12 weeks for reasons unknown to us.

We waited a year or so giving ourselves time to heal emotionally, and get healthier before we began "trying" for the first time. We immediately got pregnant with MaryMichael aka "Mickie". She was born on June 12, 2008.

I stopped nursing her at 8 months b/c I was drying up very suddenly, and it stressed me out...turns out I was pregnant! Stopped nursing on Feb. 12, got a BFP on Feb. 16th...mystery solved!

p.s. We call our babies "morsels" b/c our last name is morse...cheesy, I know.

Appointments:
February 25th-bloodwork
February 26th-physical w/sono, Morsel measuring ~ 5 weeks
March 23rd-sono, Morsel measuring 9 weeks 1 day EDD October 25th!

Karyl's Spot

don't have any pics to post yet, but very exicted.

Married to DH for 4 yrs this Aug. My history has been m/c Feb 06 (blighted ovum), m/c Oct 06 then got a BFP in July of 07 delivered our 1st child April 1, 2008. We have a beautiful boy!

Now expecting #2 Oct 15th. My b'day is Oct 29th

We are so happy! We are old LOL 37/44 started a family late in life, but worth everybit of the wait, finding the right person to have your children with and spend the rest of your life with is such a wonderful thing. I previously divorced twice, so this means the world to me to have such a loving husband and wants children more than anything. I don't know how I would live with out him.

Aimee's Space!

I'm 28 and SAHM to 3 kiddos-Lisette, 9, Christian, 7, and Haillie, 3. SO to Houston, 30, mechanical engineer. I grew up in NYC but we live in South Jersey now. This pregnancy is a surprise! #4 and last, I'll be tying tubes. Wink

Received first BFP with FMU on 2/18, the day AF was due.

It was faint so I went to the doctor later that same day and their test was negative, but the doctor said it was early and their tests aren't as sensitive as the one I took so she ordered bloodwork which I *still* haven't gotten the results back for. :rolleyes: But I took an EPT Certainty last night (1/19) and it said "Pregnant" so it's official! LMP was 1/21 and I'm due 10/28.

Pamela's Spot!

(I'll make this all fancy later, just wanted to make my spot!)

BFP on Monday, March 2nd. No clue we were pregnant, but those lines are prrrrety dark! These were all taken around noon on March 2nd..so not even FMU..

These lines would pop before I could even dip the second test...yes I know, I'm obsessed! :eek:

And in case we had any doubt!! Yahoo

According to my last period, I'm due October 26th. We'll see what the doctor says since that would put my conception date at Feb 1st..and well..Dh wasn't even home from Iraq till Feb 8th! Smile I'm thinking we caught the eggy right as DH got home..Coooonfusing! I'm guessing I just O'd later than what the websites I researched suggested.

Our Appointments:
Emergency Appointment: *had spotting on March 6th. Did blood work and us- Dr. believes I'm earlier along than 6 weeks. More like 4. Considered a threatened miscarriage but Dr. does not think that is the case. Follow up ultrasound and blood work for Thursday 12th.
1st Appointment: March 11th, just paperwork. Will select first OB appointment at that time! YAY! FINALLY!
