*****Mara's Pregnancy Space*****
for little baby Kong!

***The story up to now***

DH and I met in 2006 when we were working at the same school in Latvia. We moved to Angola together to work at a different school. We got married in Mexico in July 2009, and conceived our daughter on our honeymoon in Mauritius! After one more year in Angola, we have now moved to Vientiane, Laos. DH works at the school here, and I am a SAHM with my daughter. I also provide part time care to my nephew, because my my BIL works full time at the same school, and my SIL is working part time! That's life!

DD, Benita, was born in the US on April 24, 2010. I had a wonderful natural birth, laboring as long as I could at home, and DD arriving about 4 hours after I got to the hospital. While I managed to have a completely intervention free birth, as I desired, I hated the hospital stay afterward. I had a lodge on the Birthing Naturally board, and I'm assuming it's still there, along with her birth story! Wink

Us, July 3, 2011~~~~~~~~~~~~~~DD, about 16 mos~~~~~~~~~~~~~DD, 18 mos

1st... IMG_8510 2nd... IMG_8511
3rd... IMG_8512

We got our BFPs on DD's 17 mos birthday- September, 24, 2011. I was 14 DPO, and had already gotten a handful of BFNs, so I was feeling quite deflated. But as you can see, once I saw the faint line, I took the FRER and digi in quick succession, and was quite happy!

***Kong? Kong!***

We're calling the baby Kong as a nickname, because s/he was conceived in our home, which is right on the Mekong river. The full nickname is Mekong, but we'll call him/her Kong for short! We also won't find out if it's a boy or a girl until birth, so we won't use any other name until then!

***Belly pictures***

4 weeks- day we found out - Copy (533x800)

***Baby updates***

10/17- Went in today for blood work. Nurse couldn't find a vein, do doctor had to do it, and had a hard time. Same as last pregnancy! Urine looked fine, will get blood test results in morning. Results: everything pretty much looks fine!
10/28- Doc looked for a heartbeat today (8w6d) but couldn't find it. Surprisingly, I'm not worried- it's just too early. Looking forward to that ultrasound!!!!

Ultrasound!!! Baby measuring 11w6d, so pushing back the due date to 6/6/12- fine by me!

1/25- Had 21 week ultrasound. Everything about baby and placenta looks good. Urine results were perfect. BP 114/66. Weight up to 162lbs- up 7lbs from 3 weeks ago. Heartbeat was strong and steady. Smile

2/20- Routine monthly appt. Weight at 166lbs, BP good (114/72? I don't remember!), urine clear. Baby measuring 26 weeks- so a little over a week ahead. Heartbeat is strong. Doc says everything looks good, and there is nothing to worry about!

3/19- Routine appt. Leukocytes in urine. Weight around 170. BP 117/74 or so... Measuring ahead still. Ordered to come back on Friday to retest urine.

3/23- Urine tested clear. Smile Quick ultrasound shows cervical length and fluid levels are perfect- baby is breech. Sad

3/29- Finally meeting my midwife!!!!

My name is Kristie, I'm 26. I'm married to Shane, 31. We have one daughter, Parker who is 2 as of Nov 4. Here is her November '09 Space.

I had my Mirena IUD removed in June 2010. I was ready to get pregnant immediately. It took my husband awhile to come on board 100%, but we definitely had opportunities for an "Ooops" before that. But it never resulted in a + pregnancy test.

My cycles were unpredictable since the Mirena removal which didn't help matters. So my doc let me try clomid. My first cycle did the trick!!!!!

I am Renea and active duty military. I am happily married to my high school sweetheart, John, who is also active duty. We have two beautiful little girls and expecting a little BOY! This will be my fourth pregnancy (first pregnancy resulted in a blighted ovum).

I received my BFP at 10DPO and verified with a blood test that it was positive. Doctor notified my on 3 Oct 11 (my birthday!) that I was pregnant! EDD: 11 Jun 12.

Beginning my third trimester, I will going in every two weeks for growth ultrasounds. My first baby was just 2 weeks early and she was 5lbs, 4oz. My second was only one week early and was 4lbs, 12oz. I have had the joy of experiencing both sides of pregnancy! My first resulted in an emergency C-section (pre-eclampsia) and the second was supposed to be a medicated VBAC but quickly found out that the epi only last for about 30 minutes and wore off. After 36 1/2 hrs of labor, I ended up giving birth naturally! This baby will be a planned C-section (although I prefer another natural delivery).

I'm also Active Duty military married to the same. We have a three year old little boy who kept asking for a baby sister. Hopefully he gets his wish and I get a little girl. We've been actively trying since May and while I'm not very good at keeping up with pictures and journals, I love trying.

12 weeks

17 week appt went great. HR was at 155 and scheduled ultrasound for Jan 24th. Feeling lots of movement and exhausted but feeling fine otherwise.

20 week ultrasound went great. They took 45 minutes to get the "healthy" pictures and none of the ultrasound printables were worth keeping. We're having a boy; Jason is uber excited to have a brother. His room is now already bought and waiting for dh to clean out the man den to turn into a nursery!
Jason finding out it's a boy!

Jen's June Baby Space



Jeremy and I were married February 12th, 2011 in Portland, Oregon. He happily took on the role of step-father to my (our) 4 year old son Ethan. We started not actively trying but not preventing June 2011. Since stopping b/c I have been plagued with ovarian cysts and July 21st I had an emergency appendectomy to add to everything DH had open heart surgery September 17th to replace a heart valve. We were SHOCKED we got a BFN October 1st!

I'm a new mommy to be. I am 7 weeks and 4 days now. My husband and I are very excited. We have been TTC for 6 months and found out in early Oct that we were pregnant.

I have had two doctor appointments so far. We had sort of a scare at the beginning (I think it was more constipation/gas pain than anything serious), but due to that we have got to see our new baby twice on ultrasounds. The first one was more like a dot (at about 4 weeks) and the second one we got to hear the heartbeat and see more of the baby (at about 7 weeks).

I go back for my first real appointment on Nov. 14. I already did blood work (that was fun).
Jan 22nd- Felt the baby kick from the inside and outside. DH got to feel her, too.
Jan 26th- Found out the baby is a girl!!!!

16 weeks Day 3

20 weeks, Day 4

This my 3rd pregnancy, I have 2 little girls already. Amelia is nearly 5, and Lucy is 3.5.

I am guessing another girl as my cravings are similar to the others- salt, Vegemite, garlic bread...anything salty Smile

Mommy & Daddy

xmas8Amber and Family NOV 2010 121xmas7

My name is Amber, and I'm 25. I love Photography and being a Mom.
I'm engaged to my sweet Fiance, Joel, who just turned 29 and loves all things sports.
We have been together for two years now, and recently got engaged this past April.

You can watch his secret video recording of the moment here:

We were (or at least I was) in full planning mode for our big day coming up in May of 2012,
when on Halloween of 2011 I got a huge Shock.. I'm Pregnant!
This will be #3 for me and #1 for my DF.
We are both thrilled, and have simply decided to push the wedding back
another 9 months, to the spring following the baby's birth.

Big Brother & Sister
My DS is Jaxson Bryan. He is 5 years old and nothing short of all boy!
He loves playing sports and racing his toy cars all over the house!
He is such a momma's boy and a great big brother,
and no one adores his momma and baby sister like he does.

My DD is Payton Rose. She is 3 years old and quite sassy already!
This beautiful and sweet blue eyed little princess is the boss of our house...
(or so she thinks!) and is 100% her mothers daughter!
More so than anyone, she is so excited to be a big sister!

Amandas June Spacehi my name is amanda, i am 27, married, no kids yet and currently work in resturant management. have been a resturant manager for over 6 years while working at a total of 7 stores for mcdonalds. i recently helped open a new store in my town and now it has been sucessfully open for almost 2 years now. back in october i found out i was pregnant and i welcomed this suprise and so did my husband. i was afraid to tell the hubby i was pg because i really though he didnt want kids. but i told him the same day i found out. He took the news very, very well as a matter of fact not even 15 minutes of telling him he was on the phone sharing this blessing to anyone he could share it to. i was relieved. i also told everyone i knew about the great news and they were all happy for me.
