We got to the hospital at 5:30 am on Mon morning and got checked in. I changed into my gown and the nurse came in and did all her business (check-in papers, iv, catheder ( ) ) and then hooked me up to the monitors. She couldn't believe it but I was contracting every 1-3 min. and lasting 30-45 sec. So we are thinking she may have come on her own that day anyway! THe doc came in and told us there were 3 other c/s scheduled before mine, one of which was an emergency c/s so we were probably gonna be running about 15 min. behind. Finally at 7:45 they came in and got me and wheeled me back. They got me my spinal and were joking around as they got everything ready (very different from last time around). After what seemed like forever they came back with Shawn and he had just barely sat down and we were making jokes when they said that if he wanted a pic of her coming out he better get the camera ready and just moments after that you could hear her crying. At 8:14 a.m. Elle was born weighing 7 lb 15.5 oz and was 19 in. long. She had quite a bit of hair but not as much as when E was born. Shawn went over to take pics of her as they were sewing me back up and then he went down the the nursery with her as I went to my recovery room. I had to stay there a little longer than normal because my temp was a little low. At about 10 they moved me over to my pp room and at about 11 they brought her to me! She's just precious and we are all over the moon. Ethan is doing pretty good. I have my fingers crossed that will continue and last night she did pretty good. Thanks for listening to me babble and here are a few pics! TFL!!!

A little background info on me:
My husband and I went of BCP in April of 2005. First year, no luck. We went for some medical help.... they didn't find any reason for the infertility. We did 3 rounds of IUIs and got pregnant on a 'rest' cycle. Unfortunately, that pregnancy turned out to be ectopic. Took some time to grieve and heal, and then moved onto IVF. Finally got to do our first IVF cycle in Nov - and we got a BFP! We are over the moon excited.
Positive HPT 11/26
Hi, I'm Krissi and I married my best friend on June 9, 2006. We are expecting our first baby on July 14, 2008. We couldn't be happier.

Will post pics soon!
I'm Tara and have been married to my best friend, Chris for almost 6 years. We have a 5 year old boy, Mitchell and a little girl named Georgia, who will be 2 in February. This baby is a surprise for our family, but a very welcome one! I got a BFP on Nov 26 after I noticed that I was a week and a half late -- I guess the holiday threw me off. Actually, I got 3 BFP's that day -- I was a bit freaked out so I wanted to triple check. I'll share belly pics when there's something to share. *wink*
My first test... 11/26/07 - EDD July 29 -- my birthday!
Mommy and Big Brother Mitchell - right after he heard the big news! 12/1/07
Big Sister (what?!?!) Georgia - in all of her blue tootsie pop glory!! 11/21/07

My name is Aly & I've been married to Andy for 3 years.
We met in 2001 when we both moved to Evansville Indiana for jobs.
I am a morning meteorologist with the Fox affiliate here. My husband is our senior reporter and fill-in anchor/sports.
We had our first little on in March 2006.
His name is Jackson and he is the light of our life! He is very loving and funny. I can't wait to see how he is as a big brother.
We are now expecting baby #2 on July 24, 2008.
A very faint line... 11/16
Even better confirmation!
I told Andy via tee-shirt.
Here's a pic of how Jack and I looked when Andy walked in the door on Friday the 16th.
