I'm technically Nov 1st, but I'd had both of my other babies at 39 weeks so I'll probably have a late october baby. I'm in! Hello! I am Lori and I have 2 kids, Adelaide and Simon who are 3.5 and 1.5. I had a surprise pregnancy that quickly ended in a very sad m/c back in august. We decided to go back to our original plan of waiting/hoping for an October/November baby and so this was our month to try at it! I cannot express how THRILLED I am that we got this month! EEEEEEEK!
EDD: October 28th
A bit about me: I'm a huge gamer, I worked as a writer for 3 years after college then went on hiatus to stay home with my kids. I have since taken up photography and have my own business that's starting to take off. I love to read books and play instruments and spend time outdoors. This is me and my family!
Best of luck to all of you girls in the running for this cycle!!! I can't wait to get to know you all better.

My name is Andrea. I live in the midwest and I'm a SAHM to two girls - Mina and Charlotte. I'm a former math teacher and my husband is an oral surgeon. My husband and I started dating when we were 16 so we've been together half of our lives already. I love puzzles, reading, and exercise. I also watch all sorts of terrible television. We enjoy traveling and eating lots of good food (and drinking wine when I'm not pregnant). My family (two sisters, their husbands and kids, my parents, and my inlaws) all live in the same town as us and we surprisingly all get along great. Oh, and I also have a beautiful chocolate lab named Euclid that has been dubbed Bubba by the kids. He's old.
We struggled with infertility for years due to irregular periods and male factor infertility. My husband had a large varicocele that basically made his sperm crazy-shaped and slow moving. We turned to IVF to make our first child. After she was born, we decided to do the varicocele repair in the off chance that it would improve things. My periods regulated after having our first child also. We got pregnant with our second child on the first month we tried - even before my DH went in for a recheck after his surgery. This pregnancy was a first month try also. We had planned to wait a while, but then I went to a baby shower and got the fever really bad. I went home and asked my DH if we could try. We had a date night that night and two weeks later a BFP. I never would have believed that would be my story so many years ago when we were desperate to have even one child. We've been so blessed!
