Mindy, 30, married to Andy, 30, on halloween 2003. Violet was born on april 24th at 9:51 am frank breech at home!! this LO was a HUGE oops and surprise but slowly we are getting used to the idea of it.
got my bfp on Wed jan 14, and sat the 17th, sun the 18th, and mon the 19th. not really sure when i ovulated, i missed 3 temps this cycle and wouldn't you know it, thats when it happened.
I'm here because Violet was a week late, so i'm assuming this one will be late too! plus I really really want an October baby!!!
in order from 10dpo i tested every OTHER day and the last one was at the DR. office at 30dpo WOW its really been that long already?!?!

Me (36) DH (36) Married 15 years
Twins Seth and Andrew 8/23/04
My Ovulation Chart
After two years of TTC, a chemical pregnancy and an ectopic, followed by a diagnosis of MTHFR, DH and I are happy to announce our growing "Lil Pumpkin"!
1/27/09 - BFP at 14 DPO, Estimated Due Date 10/6/09
1/30/09 - First Appt: Saw a sac at just the right place, high in my uterus. Pumpkin is definitely not going to cause us an ectopic! Great news! Next Sono scheduled for mid-February.
2/1/09 - Got more good news. My first two beta results:
Friday, 1/30 - 263
Monday, 2/1 - 1163
Here's hoping for nothing but positive news from now on!
2/12/09 - MS begins. It is shockingly HORRIBLE, but I'm glad to know the Pumpkin seed is probably healthy.
2/13/09 - Second Sono. The Pumpkin Seedling is measuring 5w5d. New due date of October 11. HB of 141.
2/27/09 - Third Sono. The Pumpkin Seed (now big enough to have graduated from being a Seedling) measured 8w3d which puts our dd back to October 6. HB of 175.
3/10/09 - After missing 4 1/2 days of work over the last 6 work days due to severe morning sickness, I broke down and had my OB write me a prescription for Zofran. I hope it's the miracle I need. I've been going insane with vomit!
3/27/09 - Heard Pumpkin's HB at OB visit today. 160bpm. What a miraculous event!
3/31/09 - Had first trimeter screeing at peri's office. Pumpkin measuring on target and has HB of 173. Dr. said all measurements are beautiful.
4/3/09 - Heard from genetics counselor at peri's office. Results are in from NT scan. Pumpkin is at a significantly higher risk (1:80, as opposed to 1:400) of having Downs syndrome. Next step - meet to discuss testing options. What a shocking and scary time.
4/9/09 - Decided not to go forward with an amnio (not worth the risk of m/c for us) or further blood screen (only 3% more accurate than NT scan done on 3/31.) I'm feeling better and more positive as time moves on. I'm loving the Pumpkin and wearing maternity jeans!
4/30/09 - It's a GIRL!!
5/12/09 - Had follow-up u/s at peri's today. Pumpkin is looking great and is showing absolutely no signs of Downs. The U/S measurements combined with our last test results now give us a 1:306 chance of Downs. We are so relieved. However, our chance of placental abruption after 32 weeks went up, so bedrest may be in my future this summer.
6/4/09 - My colleagues threw me a rockin' Baby Shower today! It was amazing. We got fabulous gifts for our new little one and feel so blessed to have such wonderful people supporting us. I also made my first "emergency" appt. with my OB this morning -- seems Pumpkin has my ligaments stretching so much that I felt pain over the last couple of days. So glad it's nothing more serious!
6/9/09 - Saw peri today. The baby is measuring 1lb 2oz, which is right on target. Things are going well with her! Mommy, on the other hand, has carpal tunnel and REALLY wishes she didn't!!!
7/7/09 - Another ultrasound a the peri's office. Baby is still measuring on target - 2.5lbs. One of her kidneys is slightly enlarged but the dr. reassured me if it is still enlarged at birth we will put her on antibiotics and all will be well. I'm hoping to get my scanner working to put some of these great profile pics up soon!!
7/27/09 - Finally finished painting the nursery!
9/18/09 - Since the last post I've been put on modified bedrest at home due to low amniotic fluid. We've also had two echocardiograms due to our baby's possible enlarged heart. Today, we're feeling good about everything. The fluid has managed to stay stable at the "lower end of normal" and two cardiologists believe her heart will be okay soon after birth.
Yesterday, we worked with my OB to plan our induction date. (None of the doctors think it would be a good idea to deliver after our due date.) We're all set for 9/30, if she doesn't get antsy and show up earlier. We're so excited! We'll be meeting our little girl in less than two weeks!!
Just reserving my space. I'll have to get that new camera sooner than I thought!
BFP January 25th @ 14 DPO
