I got off of BCP May 2. The week of June 2, I took four HPT. Two were negative, the other two were positive ... after the waiting period. I had bloodwork done on June 3 - hcg levels were 0 - not pg. On June 17, I took another test and it was instantly positive.
I went in for bloodwork that same day and my hcg was between 5000-6000. My nurse told me she was expecting it to be about 1000. I asked if it could be twins and she said probably not. Then, the dr's first comment was, "Could it be twins?" I went for an u/s on June 18. We saw the yolk sac - going back on the 25th for u/s #2. Ultrasound #2 showed 1 sac and one heartbeat.
Ultrasound 5weeks 5days - heartbeat
2nd appointment -July 23 - heard h/b with doppler
3rd Appointment - August 18 - BP was good. Gained 3lbs since the first weigh in.

So I knew of my babys birth day for 3 wks...I counted them days down till tues(the night before c/s) I was excited but sad as this my last pregnancy. I couldnt get to sleep knowing my baby would be born in a few short hours...the moment a woman has kids she waits for her daughter to be born...it was finally happening...I had my boys now it was time for my girl.
So at 4:45am I got dressed and by 5am I was ready...we left the house for the hospital by 510am,got there at 5:40 am (a nice quiet night drive). It was quiet at the labor and delivery and as soon as I came in they got me in my room and prepared for my c-section(iv,cath,acid reducing drink and shaved)
my last belly pic)
(was so tired)
(my dh in his baby uniform)
it all went fast and before I knew it I was getting in to the OR,getting my epi in(I had the epidoral shock this time...ekk) and they had started.one nurse asked "What is your name and what are you in here for today." Of course my tubal and a c-section.
My hubby came in and held my hand...at 731 am Julia was born with, as predicted a bush of black hair, and a fiesty cry...
"It a GIRL." was cried by the nurses...I was in my own world of happiness and shock..
They asked me if I was sure I wanted a tubal...I was sure...later on they told me it was a good thing due to my thin uterus.
Once closed up they wheeled me in the post Opp/pre Opp room...I was super exhausted and couldnt keep my eyes open...Jewels was with grandpa and Daddy...she was safe..
I was put in my own room where all the nurses (due to me having one of few babies born that day) knew of Julia being my last and only girl of 4 kiddos...so she got blankies and other stuff for a girl
...it was nice...to be honest I never had a kid at that hospital and didnt have good experiances there either...but it was a great birth there and all went better than planned.
Julia is a super calm,quiet baby unless she is dirty/hungry she has a zesty cry...she is a great nurser...what a way to complete my family!

Hi my name is Kathryne im currently 22 and pregnant with my first! Got a BFP on June 5th.. with a due date of Feb 11th 2010!
Hi, My name is Stephanie (24) im married to the most wonderfulest man on earth, Brandon (28 ) we have 4 dogs and too many cats lol.
DH and his dad on christmas 2008:
We found out I was preggo on 6.28.09 after aunt flow being late and me just generally not feeling good.
Thankfully I haven't had any morning sickness to speak of, just some minor nausea. The biggest obstacle to overcome is the tiredness, and my new found incredible sense of smell. We've only had one u/s so far at 8 weeks:
Here are some belly pics:
Weirdly enough I got smaller after the 12 week mark, maybe because my bloating went down? Im not complaining though
Our next appointment is 09.11.09 and then our gender u/s is the next day!

My name is Julie, DH of 4.5 years is Steven. Isaac is our first little one, and one of pg.org's Little Acorns from Nov 07. He was born at 34 weeks due to preterm labor that I had dealt with for 2 months prior to his birth. He was 4lbs 15oz and 17" at birth, but only had to stay in the NICU for 6 days before coming home with us. Here's hoping that this pregnancy is very different from my last and this one will bake the whole time!!! We are so excited to be expecting a little sibling for Isaac, as both DH and I grew up as only children.
We live in Texas, midway between Houston and Galveston Island. We both work in Galveston, and are still dealing with the aftermath of Hurrican Ike which affected our lives tremendously. I am a graduate student working on my Ph.D. in biomedical research, specializing in immunology. I conduct my research at Shriner's Burn Hospital for Children, working on a treatment to improve the damaged immune systems in burn patients to prevent deadly infections. I hope to graduate in 2010. After that, I have no idea what I want to do with it!! Steve is an IT specialist for a major insurance company, working on computers all day long. My MIL lives 1 block away and comes to our home during the day to watch Isaac for us. She moved here after the hurricane closed down Isaac's daycare, and she has been a lifesaver for us.
