Under construction...last update 6/22/09 (but still VERY far behind!)
Hello my name is Nicole (screen name is NikolS, since there always seem to be so many "Nicole's" out there, I try to be different ) I attended the University of WI majoring in Hospitality and Toursim and minoring in Spanish. I also attended university in Scotland for a semester in 1997, which was to so the least very educational. I loved it and hope to get to return some day. I am 31 years old and live in Wisconsin. I am married to Mark and mommy to Zoe Mae.
DH and I met in the summer of 1999 and we were married at the Candlelight Chapel in Las Vegas on 12/31/2002 - yes on New Year's Eve (which also happened to be my 26th birthday):
Just for fun.......baby pics of DH and I:
A few other random pics of DH and I:
We lived in Madison, WI for awhile in an apartment and purchased a home in early 2000. We now live north of Madison in a small community. We are hoping to purchase a bigger home someday........oh, to dream :
We found out we were pg in early November of 2006. DH decided on the name Zoe. I decided on the middle name of Mae after my grandmother who had passed away from cancer a few years before. This is baby girls first picture:

I'm Chantel, 28 and I am engaged to Josh, almost 28 and the proud mommy of Rebecca Cora, 1. Josh and I have been together for 3 years. We met at the bar and he asked me to dance, then I never saw him again untill about 6 months later when I started working at a pizza place he worked at. It was a wonderful courtship and we officially became a couple April 13 '05. Moved in together in Novemeber. In August '06 we moved to Edmonton Alberta and had so much fun. We played darts and shopped the famous West Ed. mall. In October I found out I was preggo. We ended up moving back to Ontario in November.

Becca was born on July 3, 2007 at 6:29pm via emergency c-section. It was the most terrifying experience of my life. I wish to never do that again! I am so glad she is here safe though. She had a heartrate of 210 and the doctors couldn't figure it out. They transferred her to CHEO, the childrens hospital and those wonderful people fixed my baby! They shocked her heart and got it into a normal rythem. I got to take her home when she was 4 days old. I have never loved a human so much and I can't even explain the feelings I have for her.

My little pumpkin...
She surprised me though, red hair. How the heck did that happen?? Still a bit of a mystery...
She is a wonderful little girl with a temper and a beautiful big smile. She lights up my days and fills my heart with all the magic in the world. I am reliving life through her. She is so smart, saying about 70 words at the moment (16 months old). She loves to be outside and walk (on her own).
I am a SAHM and will be untill she is in school, then I am not too sure what I will do. I might workl or volunteer. I enjoy painting and taking pictures and going for walks. My fav. shows are House, the Fringe, One tree hill, ER, simpsons. I love music and I love to play the piano. When I grew up I wanted to be a singer or an accountant.

Hi! I'm Sandra (24) married to DH Chris (27) since June 10, 2005. We live in Saskatchewan, Canada.
I am a SAHM ~ when I was little I wanted to be a teacher. When I was in high school I realized I'd just love to be a mom! I love to sing, act, and read.
Chris and I started dating in October 2004, got engaged in January 2005, and got married in June 2005. We met at church - we 'knew of' each other during high school but since he was 3 years older than me, we didn't really get to know each other. By the time I came back from one year of university in Utah, our age difference didn't matter so much! Here are some pics from when we were dating!
Our Wedding Day ~ June 10, 2005
A year after we got married, we decided to start TTC. After only one month of trying we got a BFP in July 2006. The EDD was March 31, 2007. I miscarried at 8 weeks, in August 2006. We decided to start trying again in November - luckily after only one cycle (again!) we conceived our July 2007 Firecracker! Here are some pictures of DH and I (plus my 35 week belly) on our 'babymoon' in Toronto and Niagara Falls.
Ella Marie was born on July 17, 2007 after 23 hours of labor. She was 7 lbs 8 oz and 19 1/2 inches long. My water broke around 1:00 pm on July 16th, and she came in to the world at 12:20 pm the next day. I pushed for 2 hours with the aid of a heavenly epidural - here are some pictures of our newborn princess.
Ella's First Year Slideshow
In May 2008 we decided to TTC baby #2. Once again, first cycle produced a BFP on May 31, 2008!
Here are my belly pictures from my pregnancy with Eli (No one knows how I managed to stay vertical during my last few months) :
Eli Jeremy arrived 10 days late on February 9, 2009. The night before I was scheduled to be induced, I started having contractions and 10 hours later Eli was born, at 10:27 am. He was 9 lbs 7 oz and 22 inches long. Here are some pictures of our newborn prince!

I don't have too many pics on this computer, so I'll have to start with what's in my photobucket account.
I'm Kristen .
DH and I met in the spring or early summer of 1998. We worked at the same grocery store and he was my boss (gasp!) on the night crew shift. We hated each other at first, but by early fall we were hanging out a lot and we officially started dating Oct 30, 1998. In August of 2001 we went on vacation to California. We drove to San Francisco and spent a couple days there, then we drove on down to Huntington Beach. The first night there we were walking on the beach at sunset when DH proposed. I was so surprised! No wonder he had been "sick to his stomach" all that afternoon...heehee.
My Wedding Day -- Sept 07, 2002
There's a lot in between, but lets get to the good stuff. In September 06 we decided to go off the pill and see what happened. Figured it could take awhile for my cycles to regulate, etc etc. I had my period 10/02/06 and didn't start a new pack of pills the next week. We tested either on Halloween or Nov 1st and got a BFN. I wasn't too surprised, or saddened, as I figured it would take a while to get pregnant. On November 18th I was sick as all get out. I thought I had eaten something bad at dinner the night before, but DH said maybe I should test again. I still hadn't had AF, but chalked it all up to things regulating after being on the pill for 10+ years. I took a test. Nothing, not even the control line, so DH went out and picked up another pack of tests. As soon as I peed on the thing it was 2 bright pink lines! No question about it, but I still took another test the next morning. Sorry, no pics of my BFP. I didn't even realize people did such a thing until I got here to pg.org .
A few pics from our "babymoon" in Maui. (Jan 2007)
Some belly pics...
I took this pic after dinner on June 26th. My mom wanted me to email her a pic bc she wanted to know if I'd dropped. Had I? It didn't matter; I started having pretty regular contrax about 5 hours later.
Alexa was born June 27, 2007 (38w 1d) at 2:13pm. She weighed 6lb 8oz and was 19 3/4" long.
