Us: Amber/26 & Chris/36
Our Boys: Mason/3 & Isaac/2
Baby #3 EDD: October 1, 2012

I'm Amber, DH is Chris and we are expecting #3! We've been together since Dec/04, married since Dec. 15/06. We had a m/c in Apr/08, and were ecstatic to welcome our first son, Mason, via c-section on Apr. 21/09. A mere 16 months later we were excited to welcome our second son, Isaac, via VBAC on Aug. 17/10. We recently suffered another m/c in Oct/11, but started 2012 off on a great note with a BFP on Jan. 19, we are very excited and relieved to have a sticky bean. This will be our last baby, so a little pink would be lovely to round things out, but we are just so thrilled and excited to complete our little family.

Feb. 18 - Viability u/s. Saw little blob and a HB of 163! Measurements matched my dates exactly for an EDD of Oct. 1.
Mar. 28 - Prenatal appt. 13w 2d. Boring paperwork, BP fine, heard HB/166 on doppler for the first time, fundal height measuring big. Pre-preg weight was 135lbs, weight today 144lbs.
Apr. 23 - Prenatal appt. 17w. BP & urine fine, had pap done. HB/153, FH still measuring ahead, weight/149lbs.
May 14 - Anatomy Ultrasound, our little boy looks healthy as can be!
May 17 - Prenatal appt. 20w 3d. BP & urine fine, all bloodwork came back normal, u/s results were all great and right on target. HB/158, measuring well, weight/153.
May 30 - OB meeting. 22w 2d. Boring and routine, went over my history with my previous pregnancies. Since I have had a successful VBAC I am fine to try for another this time.
June 13 - Prenatal appt. 24w 2d. BP & urine fine. Baby measuring well, HB/152, weight/162. :shock: Not happy about that at all.
July 16 - Prenatal appt. 29w. BP & urine fine. HB good and strong, uterus measuring 31 weeks. Weight/167. Iron low and suspect another UTI, on antibiotics and go back for more blood work in a month to check both.
July 30 - Prenatal appt. 31w. BP & urine fine. Baby measuring well, HB/140s, weight/169.
Aug 13 - Prenatal appt. 33w. BP & urine fine. HB/148, weight/169, baby measuring right on.
Aug 27 - Prenatal appt. 35w. BP & urine fine. HB/151, weight/172. On antibiotics again for UTI.
Sept 4 - OB appt. 36w 1d. BP & urine fine. HB/143, weight/171, measuring right on.
Sept 14 - OB appt. 37w 4d. BP & urine fine. HB/155, weight/175, measuring 38w. Cervix dilated about a fingertip, still thick but starting to soften.
Sept 18 - OB appt. 38w 1d. BP & urine fine. HB/good, weight/175, measuring well. Cervix dilated 1-2 cm, still a little thick, head way down on my cervix. OB did an aggressive sweep to hopefully get things going.
Sept 25 - OB appt. 39w 1d. BP & urine fine. HB/good, weight/176, measuring 40 weeks. Cervix dilated to almost 3 cm, still a little thick. OB did another aggressive sweep.
Oct 3 - OB appt scheduled

I'm technically Nov 1st, but I'd had both of my other babies at 39 weeks so I'll probably have a late october baby. I'm in! Hello! I am Lori and I have 2 kids, Adelaide and Simon who are 3.5 and 1.5. I had a surprise pregnancy that quickly ended in a very sad m/c back in august. We decided to go back to our original plan of waiting/hoping for an October/November baby and so this was our month to try at it! I cannot express how THRILLED I am that we got this month! EEEEEEEK!

EDD: October 28th

A bit about me: I'm a huge gamer, I worked as a writer for 3 years after college then went on hiatus to stay home with my kids. I have since taken up photography and have my own business that's starting to take off. I love to read books and play instruments and spend time outdoors. This is me and my family!

Best of luck to all of you girls in the running for this cycle!!! I can't wait to get to know you all better.

Lilypie Maternity tickers

My name is Andrea. I live in the midwest and I'm a SAHM to two girls - Mina and Charlotte. I'm a former math teacher and my husband is an oral surgeon. My husband and I started dating when we were 16 so we've been together half of our lives already. I love puzzles, reading, and exercise. I also watch all sorts of terrible television. We enjoy traveling and eating lots of good food (and drinking wine when I'm not pregnant). My family (two sisters, their husbands and kids, my parents, and my inlaws) all live in the same town as us and we surprisingly all get along great. Oh, and I also have a beautiful chocolate lab named Euclid that has been dubbed Bubba by the kids. He's old.

We struggled with infertility for years due to irregular periods and male factor infertility. My husband had a large varicocele that basically made his sperm crazy-shaped and slow moving. We turned to IVF to make our first child. After she was born, we decided to do the varicocele repair in the off chance that it would improve things. My periods regulated after having our first child also. We got pregnant with our second child on the first month we tried - even before my DH went in for a recheck after his surgery. This pregnancy was a first month try also. We had planned to wait a while, but then I went to a baby shower and got the fever really bad. I went home and asked my DH if we could try. We had a date night that night and two weeks later a BFP. I never would have believed that would be my story so many years ago when we were desperate to have even one child. We've been so blessed!

EDD October 22, 2012 Biggrin
BFP on February 11 on IC
HCG level of 3400 on February 22 (5 weeks, 2 days)
Ultrasound on February 23 - Nothing much to see, but pregnancy growing in the right spot

Heard heartbeat with home doppler on March 15 Biggrin
Nurse's Appointment scheduled for March 20
