Guess I get to post here...
My name is Tara, and this is pregnancy #2 for me! I have a son Liam, who is the light of my life <3
HPT + on January 26th. Doctor gives me a due date of October 1st, but I suspect that's way too early. I have long cycles and that stupid chart just doesn't work for me.
Feb 14th - First prenatal appointment
Feb 16th - First u/s!
