I'm not very good at these but I'll start one anyway. I'm Krista DH is Shem. We have 2 boys already, Shawn who turns 3 in July and William who is 15 months old. This is baby #3 for us and we are really hoping it's a girl this time but I'm not going to let my heart get set on anything so I don't deal with disappointment. Got my BFP at 10 DPO, May 19th, 2011. Took another test at 12 DPO, May 21, 2011. My guess date is January 30th. With this birth I will be attempting a home birth with a midwife.
May 19th, 2011- 10 DPO
May 21st, 2011- 12 DPO
*First midwife appointment set up for July 12th @ 11 weeks. We should hear the heart beat!
*May 23rd- 4 weeks- 98 Ibs
*May 30th- 5 weeks-99 Ibs. Also admitted to hospital with kidney infection. Praying the bean will stay sticky in there.
*July 12th-11 weeks-97.8 pounds, first appointment, bp 111/87, Babe's HR 160's
*August 12th-15 weeks-99.8 pounds, BP 106/70something, Babe's HR good upper 140's lower 150's. Need to eat more veggies and fruits so I was instructed to drink green smoothies. Made the choice to stop caffeine consumption.
*September 6th- 19 weeks 1 day. Anatomy scan and gender. Placenta is low but not on cervix. Might need another U/S in a few weeks to check it. Most measurements were 18 weeks 5 days. But that's normal for me.
*Sep 8th appointment- BP 101/77, 102.6 Ibs, BB HR 140's. Possible trace of protein in urine but just waiting to see if it gets worse or just a one time thing.

TTC in fall/winter of 2014
Hi! I'm Nicole, aka SlackerMom. I love being a mom, but I fully accept the fact that I just can't do it all! I forget birthdays, I mix up doctor appointments, I don't wash the bedding, I refuse to Scrapbook, and I re-gift. Like, alot.
If I stumble upon a shortcut that makes life easier, I happily take it and don't look back! Parenthood is hard enough...we all do our best, and us Moms need to give ourselves a break. My parenting style is a regime of benign neglect.
DD is Brynna, she is three years old. She is my daughter from a previous ill-advised relationship that evaporated before the pee on the stick did. Being a single mom was difficult to deal with at the time, but DD and I had such a great time together just the two of us, all the hard stuff just faded into the background.
Lo and behold, my Prince Charming showed up on the scene and now he is my darling husband. He is an amazing partner and father to DD (he has adopted her, she is now 100% his little girl). He was actually my highschool sweetheart years ago...we had lost touch over the years, but reconnected via Facebook and fell in love all over again. We got married last fall, and I am so happy to be with my best friend and true love.
We are ecstatic to be adding on to our little family! We TTC for 6 months....it felt like FOREVER. I thought that since DD was conceived with little more than a wink, a smile and a bottle of rum, that #2 would be just as easy. Turns out that was not the case. Every month I would just be devastated when AF would arrive...I was so worried that something was wrong and that we weren't ever going to conceive. I got so frustrated, I gave up on OPKs and BBTs and CDs and all of the planning tools, then just about gave up entirely when we found out that DH's boys were operating at half capacity...and wouldn't you know it, that's exactly when one determined little spermie cracked the little eggy. Isn't that just the way that life goes sometimes?
I can't wait to share this journey with all of you!!
BFP on CD26, the same day AF was due.

Hello all! My name is Brandi, 24 years old. My SO is 27, and we are currently expecting twins. (This is our first pregnancy.) I don't know what a BFP is (I even looked on the Acronyms list, it isn't there), but I know the conception date. I conceived April 13th, but the doctor has measured from my last period. According to the doctor, I am 8 weeks pregnant; according to me, I'm 7 weeks 2 days. I have no pics of the strip (didn't keep it) and will post belly pics/ the ultrasound as soon as possible!
I'm Gabrielle and my fiance is Eric. We've been trying to have a baby for two years and finally hit the jackpot! I found out I was pregnant at the doctors office after a visit to the dentist and them requesting a urine test before doing any work. I'm 6 weeks tomorrow and super excited. :3
Pics soon to come!
M/C July 11.

Eva's January Space!
EDD: January 1, 2012
This has been a long time in coming, and I didn't dare start a space until I was (relatively) safe into my second trimester. My husband and I have been trying for 4 years to get pregnant with our first child, and it's been a rough road. After three previous losses (and three abandoned spaces on three other boards), we finally made it through!
I began this journey with my husband Eric when I was turning 35 and I am now turning 39 in July. I was watching my window of fertility grow increasingly smaller with each loss and with each BFN. With this pregnancy, we had been in fertility treatment at a clinic for a full year and had just completed our 5th medicated cycle and IUI. I was certain it wouldn't take; we hadn't fallen pregnant in over a year and I saw no reason why this cycle would be any different. We had actually put everything in place for IVF in Ontario, my home province, and were 6 days away from getting into the car and making the long drive home, when I thought that it would be irresponsible for me not to test before I finalized the details. So I dipped a stick, put it down, phoned the clinic to make sure everything was set for our arrival, and completely forgot about it. Since I had been on progesterone supplements and had had the HCG trigger in my system for the first half of the 2WW, I dismissed anything I was feeling as the product of synthesized hormones, not pregnancy. But when I hung up the phone, feeling a great sense of relief because our IVF plans were set, my husband said: "Eva, it's pink."
And it was. A FRER later confirmed that I was, indeed pregnant. I was stunned. And here I am, 10 weeks later, still pregnant, and trying very hard to process it. This is truly something I never thought that I would experience!

Roni's January Space
EDD: February 2nd but U/S has been always showen January 27th
Hello my name is Ronda
*but I also go by Roni*
Well let’s see. where to start
I have had an infertility problem for over 15 years.. so when I found out we were expecting.. I was shocked to say the least. I feel so blessed and at times I sit and think why it took my body so long to finally do what it is made to do I really think god gave me two special gifts this year. One was my husband Bobby (married earlier this year and the second is my lil precious miracle that I cannot wait to meet We are both very excited about starting our family and our lil miracle is growing so fast & healthy I have been super scared to show how excited I am but each day little by little I let go of that fear. I had a few losses in my past but since this was a natural conception everything has been great and on track. I will still need to be watched very closely and will need to see the high risk specialist. (As I may need to get a surcloge)
