Hi! I'm Amanda, married to Brian for over 8 years. We TTCed for over 2 years before finally conceiving DS1, Asher, with the help of Clomid. He was born 11/29/09 at 39 weeks and 2 days. He is the joy of our lives and such a laid-back, happy little guy. I initially returned to my job as a clinical social worker after he was born, but missed him too much, hated pumping, and found it difficult to juggle everything. Thankfully, DH was able to start a job making a little more money and was supportive of me quitting to stay home full-time! I do want to return to work in a few years, but for now, I love being home with Asher. We had basically decided to be content with one child because additional cycles on Clomid in an attempt to conceive #2 were unsuccessful. But then, surprise! I got a BFP on July 17th, already 6 weeks pregnant and vomiting before I thought to take a pregnancy test! Conceiving without the help of meds was supposed to be virtually impossible for us (2% chance). We are so thankful and excited to make Asher a big brother!
DS Asher born 11/29/09
DD Clara born 3/9/12
Heidi's Space (socalmama)
My name is Heidi (37) and I've been married to my DH, Robert (34), since November 2000 and we live in Southern California. I got pregnant with my DD, Kayla, very quickly after we got married. I charted and got pregnant on the first try and she blessed our lives in October 2001. About 2 1/2 years later, she was joined by our DS, Eric, in January 2004. I also charted with him and was successful on the second try. I actually didn't try that hard the first go with him because I didn't want a December baby. And now here I am more than 7 years later with my pleasant little surprise. Even though I have Endometriosis and PCOS, and thought I couldn't ever conceive again (and didn't really want to), I guess I'm just a fertile myrtle and probably should have thought longer about going off of b/c (as it wasn't helping my Endo and PCOS symptoms), but there is no turning back now. Now that the shock has worn off, I'm actually pretty excited about it.
Possibly a girl?
It's definitely a girl!

I guess I should book my space too! First off, Nice to meet all of you ladies and learn a litlle about each and everyone of you. My Name is Jenn, I am 30YO and I have been married for just over a year now. This is my 5th pregnancy. Unfortunately, no babies as of yet. My first appointment was July 27 and we found out baby was measuring at 6 weeks. HCG levels were good so far and Heart beat of 111. We actually saw the little blink on the monitor of the heart beat. (that was a first for us). I have my 8 week US on the 10th of August. A bit nervous about it as this is the time we have lost all of our other babies. But keeping positive thoughts I had slight spotting between week 5 and 7 on and off. I had never experienced that before but the DR assured me that is actually common the first trimester. Keeping our fingers crossed and will update you ladies next week on that U/S
My name is Abby and I am 29 years old. I met my husband Jason (34) in 2001. We have been married since September 2, 2007. This will be his second child and my first. My stepdaughter lives in Florida with her mother and step father.
I found out I was pregnant on July 7th and had my first Ob appt on August 4th.
These tests were taken on the same day!

Hi everyone, My name is Richelle and I'm 29 years old. Been with my DH for 12 years, we have 3 amazing kids and are expecting our 4th in march, DS 10, DS 7 and DD 1 year. This pregnancy was totally unplanned and a surprise as I was planning on getting my tubes tied in august! .....BUT.... I found out I was expecting #4 July 11th! I believe that things happen for a reason and although this pregnancy was unplanned and a total surprise I am super excited to welcome another miracle into our family!.....and after this one I AM DONE!!
Hey everyone! My name is Jess and I have been a silent follower of this board for a little while now. I think I was just too nervous to join before the 2nd trimester. My awesome DH is Jonny and we just celebrated our first anniversary in July! Two days before our anniversary we found out that we were pregnant and couldn't have been happier about it. This is the first time for me and has been full of all kinds of firsts. My EDD is March 21st and I'm so excited! We'll be going in for our 3rd appt. on Monday and I'm aching to hear that little heartbeat again. I'm excited to finally join the group after being a secret admirer.
I figured it's time to add my space on here. I have been secretly lurking since before my bfp but due to multiple miscarriages prior to this pregnancy I was super nervous to create a space!
At 7 weeks my progesterone was tested and at 7...scary low! I thought for sure I was going to loose this pregnancy again. Thankfully the progesterone the doctor put me on has helped me now get to almost 18 weeks and I am finally beginning to believe we might have a baby in March!
I have two beautiful children; Caleb who is 4 1/2 and Hallie who is 3. we hoped to have our third a little closer, but are so thankful we are being blessed with this baby now!
My pregnancies have been fairly uneventful, but my first ended in a un-necessary C-section. I really had hoped for a natural birth so I was devastated when I didn't get that. We decided to try for #2 when Caleb was only 9 months old and got pregnant right away. I decided that that birth would be different. In fact I made sure everything was exactly different. After tons of research and prayers we decided that having a homebirth was the best option to get the birth we wanted. Hallie's birth was long, but amazingly beautiful and I can't imagine going to the hospital again unless it is medically necessary. We are planning another homebirth with this baby and I am so excited for it!
