EDD July 15th.
BFP on Nov.4th.
Blood work Confirmed on Nov 5th.
More blood work Nov 10th
First appointment Nov 10th.
First HCG -22 -11/5/08
Second HCG -238 11/10/08
Third HCG -4186 11/17/08
Blood work came back great, numbers went up from 22 to 238 in 5 days. I go back every week for a weight check because the m/s is so bad i can't keep anything down. My first U/S is when i'm 12 weeks. and than I'll have my 18 week one, to determine the gender. I have to go up to the hospital to have more blood work done and a urine test.
1st ultrasound January 5th, 1pm.
2nd ultrasound February 16th, 10am.
Had my 18 week U/S. Couldn't determine the gender and couldn't see what they needed to see with the heart and brain. I go back 3/23/09 at 9am. I have an independent scan appointment for 2/22/09 at 12:30pm to determine gender. I can't wait until almost APRIL! haha. Crazy doctors. I'm such a planner!
So we'll hopefully see what we're going to be having in a week! I'll update here with belly shots and other info later.

Beverly's July 2009 Space
My name is Beverly. I live in Southern California with my husband, Johnny, our toddler, Jack (born on his due date of July 12, 2007) and our dog, a cream-colored Shiba Inu named Atari (born on May 9, 2004). I'm a full-time mom with a part-time consulting job that I do from home 10 to 20 hours a week. Occasionally I work on freelance writing assignments, but it all depends on how much "free" time my real boss (that would be Jack, and soon, the new baby boy ) allows me to have. Here are some pictures of my current crew:

Last but not least, our first baby, Atari
Johnny and I were very happy with our little family, and we always agreed that we would have another little one in 2010, when Jack was three. I've always been a planner to the extreme, so imagine my surprise when I got this on November 1, 2008:
Johnny was happy right away, but it definitely took a few days for me to process the news because it deviated from my grand plans. However, it didn't take me long to become thrilled about our new Baby Surprise! I loved being pregnant with Jack, and I am enjoying this new pregnancy as well. I am so grateful to have a healthy baby growing inside of me.
And, even though we didn't plan it, the new baby's due date sure couldn't have worked out better: It's the same as Jack's due date and birthday! Technically, according to my dates, it's July 11, 2009 (one day before Jack's second birthday), but according to ultrasound measurements, it's July 12, so I'm sticking with that!
I am aiming for a VBAC this time (Jack was breech, requiring me to have a c-section). My provider is very supportive, so I'm hopeful about my chances.

At 15 weeks, we found out that our Surprise is another baby boy! Now Jack will have a little buddy to follow him around.
4 weeks (normal belly to establish a baseline)
