I'm Karen (26) and I married Chris (30) on 25th August 2007. We had a beautiful baby boy on 9th April 2007 and are now expecting #2!
Me at 37 weeks with my last pg (can't imagine being this size again!), and my little suntanned monkey at 3 days old! He was pretty jaundiced for a while.
First BFP was at 8 DPO, although it was almost invisible. There are many, MANY more than this, but I will spare you!
First pic is me now, stretchmarks and leftover baby belly galore! Second pic is the first in what I am hoping will be a complete timeline of this pregnancy.
13 weeks 3 days
20 weeks 4 days
We found out we are having a GIRL!!!!

I'm Mindie and I am pregnant with baby #5! I am 26 years old.
I was widowed at 23 years old and never imagined I would be happy again!
CLICK ME FOR MINDIE'S PREGNANCY JOURNAL!!
Daniel Starling Due 12/8/10
And Just Because Blue Dye Tests SUCK:
My Family from WiddlyTinks.com
My kiddos. Dylan is the oldest, Devon is the blonde curly haired boy, Dorothy is my daughter, and Derek is the little one getting an Irish Twin!.:
My husband was also a widow when we met. We tied the knot on 5-16-09
FIRST APPOINTMENT WITH OB/GYN: 4/13/10 @ 10:00am (Got DISMISSED for home birthing, those douche bags!)
FIRST APPOINTMENT WITH HB MW: 12 weeks
FIRST APPOINTMENT WITH NEW, H/B FRIENDLY MIDWIFE: 4/28/10. Got u/s. Baby measured a week behind (7weeks instead of 8 weeks), but Derek did too. Keeping EDD at 12/8/10. Heart Rate 160
SECOND APPOINTMENT: 5/26/10. Couldn't find the heart rate with the doppler, so I got a sneak peek. We have a very dance crazed baby.
FIRST TRI SCREEN: 6/8. Baby measuring right on the dot (13w, 6d). NT 2.4mm. Heart Rate was 162
SECOND HB MW: 6/21 Everything good. Uterus where it should be, urine fine, bp fine.
GENDER SCAN: 6/24
THIRD APPOINTMENT W/BIG ANATOMY SCAN: 7/6, Baby seems to still be a boy, couldn't see his heart that great to measure/examine/whatever, have to go back.
THIRD HB MW APPOINTMENT: 7/21 @4pm: Nothing too impressive, all good.
HEART SCAN 8/3 @11:30: ARGH, scheduling error, no u/s. Mark took the afternoon off to be there for it for apparently NO reason. The "regular" part of the appointment went good though. HR was 155. They want to schedule the heart scan for next month, but I think I am done seeing the doctors' office midwife.
FOURTH HB MW APPOINTMENT 8/17 @10am: Boring. Everything was great. HR in the 140s, Fundal height 27cm.
FIFTH HB MW APPOINTMENT 9/15 @11:
12/9/10: 40 weeks and 1 day. Still hanging in there.
23 weeks, 5 days
*sigh* Yes, there is only 1 baby in there
12 week ultrasound pics
My Rorschach inkblot test @ 13w, 6d:
Daniel was born on 12/18/10 at 41w, 3d. He was born at 12:59pm after 3 hours of labor

I'm Meghan, I'm 22, I married Andrew (21) on October 22nd 2009. We have a beautiful spunky 23 month old son name Hayden, born June 30th 2008. I was induced at 38 weeks due to high blood pressure/stomach flu. We are using a midwife this time and hoping everything goes well enough for a home water birth.

Little about me:
I'm 27 and my husband is 28.
We were married on 4/30/2010!
We decided to start trying a couple month before the wedding, but our first pregnancy ended in m/c.
The very next month I went into my doctor's because I was worried about still getting BFP a month after the m/c. He confirmed a new pregnancy! We were so overjoyed and really hoped this one stuck!

I'm 29 DH is 28, this is our first. We have been married since June 13, 2009. We were going to wait a full year before trying but I didn't want to wait that long so DH gave in and now here we are.
X First appt history/blood work is 4/20 at 9:00
X First ob appt with u/s on 4/27 at 3:15 we can not wait to hear our baby's heart beat. heard baby heart beat and got first u/s done.
XJune 2nd (2nd) appt at 1:00. 13 week appt: heard heart beat and took measure of belly
XJune 30 17.4 week appt. Heart beat at 140-150, no weight gain, everything perfect so far.
XJuly 13 appt at 8:15 am 19.3 week appt finding out gender!! It's a Boy!! Everything is looking great, he is measuring at 20 wks 1 day. His hb was 141.
XJuly 28 appt at 1:00 just check up 21.4 weeks-appt went well belly is measuring at 23 weeks. Gained 5 lbs this last month but still only totally less then 8 lbs total.
XAugust 25 appt at 1:15 check up for 25.4 days and Glucose test. Appt today went well. Belly measuring 27 weeks so still a little ahead. Baby sounds great and was moving around like crazy. Glucose test was not too bad waiting to hear back results for that.
XSeptember 15 at 1:00 check up and rhogram shot. Then we go to every 2 week appts. Appt went really well, passed one hour glucose test, everything is looking good. Baby's heart beat sounds really strong and amazing. Had my rhogram shot and now on a visit every 2 weeks. Lost 2 lbs this month so gain of 10 lbs total so far.
XSeptember 29 at 3:15 check up. Everything is looking good. Baby's heart beat was 147 and move around like crazy. Dr said everything looked good and was measuring good.
XOctober 14 at 1:30 check up. Everything is looking amazing. Baby's heart beat is around 140, belly measuring 34 weeks, weight gain is at 20 lbs total, and blood pressure is looking good. One more 2 week appt then on to 1 week appts.
XOctober 27 at 2:00 check up, strep B, ultrasound to check baby position and weight. Good check up. Baby's heart beat was good and measuring at 35 weeks. Only gained a lb so 21 total so far. Still good blood pressure. I also got a sneak peek of the baby and he is head down and ready to go. He had the hiccups and was super cute. He also is all boy and no mistaking that. He does have the cutest cheeks and can't wait to meet him. On to every week appts.
November 2 35.3weeks: check up went well. Baby is very active and had a heart rate in the 140's closer to 150. Dr was able to fill head down and bum up top. Bp is doing really good and everything is on track.
XNovember 9 at 2:00 36.3 weeks: Check up went great. Measuring around 37.4 so about a week ahead. BP was 122/72 not as good as it has been but still good. Gained 3lbs this week which means either those cookies have caught up with me I ate alot of last week or I have more water retention. Lets hope for the later of the two. Baby sounds great and is still head now and ready to go. Feeling a lot more pressure down there and baby head banging on my cervix hopefully is getting things started and softened.
XNovember 19 37.6 weeks: Check up went great again. No weight gain, blood pressure was 112/68. My stomach was only measuring 37.4 weeks so I am guessing it is because he has gotten low and not sticking out so far. I got my first cervix check and it is soft and shortened. So it is a start but not has far along as I was hoping. Hoping next appointment there will be some dilation going on.
XNovember 23 38.4 weeks: Good blood pressure, great baby's heart beat, no weight gain. Dr checked my cervix and it is really soft but still not dilated. So still progress but just waiting for little man to work his magic and decide that it is time for him to come out.
XNovember 30 39.4 weeks: Can I just say Ditto to all of the above. There was nothing new happening. The Dr. was able to get a finger in but still not dilated. I'm not closed but not completely open either. She poked some to try and get something started but we will see if anything happens. Thinking I am just going to wait until the 6th for the induction.
December 6th 7 am Induction Date!!
