Aggiegirl06's July Space
Meet the Parents
11/7/11: After our ultrasound we bought several cards that said "BABY" on the outside and "God's most perfect blessing" on the inside. We taped an ultrasound picture inside the card and wrote "Expected arrival July 4, 2012- Proud parents, Matt and Amanda" First up we told our BIL and SIL and they knew exactly what was going on when they saw "Aunt and Uncle" on the outside of the envelope. We shared lots of tears and hugs and left with lots of books about pregnancy! Next we went to DH's parents and they didn't clue in until they got the card all the way open and saw the ultrasound picture fall out. MIL immediately started screaming and crying and hugging both of us. She was so thrilled and just never came off cloud 9. From their house we facetimed with his sister and have the best picture of her reaction. Lastly we headed to my parents house and as soon as they saw us at the door they knew something was up. I don't think they even noticed the card until hugs had been given out! They were all thrilled and full of questions for us.
I'm Amanda, 27 and DH is Matt, 27. We've been together since we were 14 and married since March 15, 2008. We started TTC in June 2008 and after years of charting, months and months of Clomid, one angel baby, a laparoscopy, 3 HSG's 2 hysteroscopys and 2 IUI's we are finally here! Due July 4, 2012!
Sharing the News
11/24/11: We were not able to spend Thanksgiving with DH's family, so we face-timed with them during lunch. Everyone was there and gathered around the computer and MIL asked us what we were thankful for. We replied, "We are thankful that we are having a baby!"12/19/11: We put the news on our Christmas card and they were delivered today! DH and I were each holding a stocking and we were both holding a baby stocking in the middle. It was so cute! We signed the card from "Matt, Amanda, and Baby *** arriving July 2012. The response has been overwhelming and wonderful!
Afterwards we went to lunch with my family and my niece wore a shirt that said "Big Cousin." It took my grandmother awhile but she was very excited!
10/26/11: Beta confirmation, HCG = 123, progesterone = 20+
10/31/11: Beta HCG = 535
11/4/11: Beta HCG = 1314
11/7/11: Beta HCG = 5000+
10/31/11: Took day off work because of abdominal pains. Nurse said it was probably just my uterus stretching.
11/7/11: Ultrasound with two sacs in my uterus! One sac definitely has a baby, and the other is either a) a twin we already lost, b) a fluid-filled sac, or c) a twin too small to see on ultrasound yet.
11/7/11: Shared the news with our families!
11/10/11: Saw the heartbeat! Definitely just one baby!

I'm Maggie and I'm 33. I have an almost 3 year old and this will be our second. I've been married a little over 4 years. We recently moved from CA to VT for DH's work, and in CA I worked 3/4 time for a non-profit as the Education Director. Since we moved, I've been mostly a SAHM, but I have been doing some part time contract work from home. Looking forward to sharing my pregnancy with you ladies, and sharing yours with you!
I used some random objects to prop up my BFP photo, a tape dispenser and a baby monitor
reserving my space, i'll update when photobucket decides to play nicely.

Mommy & Daddy
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 proposal 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!

Darn, my post got eaten!
Anyways, this is my 3rd pregnancy. SO and I fell in love very quickly, and planned to be together forever, but things went downhill during my pregnancy with DS2, and we split up when he was 4 months old. After almost a year apart (although he spent most of his time at my place anyways lol), we got back together at the beginning of September. Last night, I got a faint line on a HPT, and got another one this morning!
We are THRILLED. Even though we hadn't planned on having another baby NOW, we did want another one. We are planning to get married (in an impromptu way...not really wedding people), and will probably do so before the baby is born.
Really NOT looking forward to telling my mom...she would have liked for ONE of my pregnancies to be planned, I'm sure! But, I know she'll come around...this baby will be very loved!
Haven't taken pics of the HPTs yet, but I will!
