My name is Megan and my husband is Josh. We are both 23 years old. DH is a cook and is going to school for Accounting. I am a full time education student and work Monday and Fridays at an in home daycare. I have an Etsy shop where I sell invitations and Thank you cards in my spare time.

We were married on August 15, 2009.


Our DD Ashlynn was born November 7, 2009 and she was the most amazing thing I had ever seen! I instantly knew that I was more in love with her than I could ever be with anyone else on Earth.


It is hard to believe that she is creeping closer to three already !


We tried to get pregnant in 2010 for about 4 months from June - October without luck and then stopped when I left my job. We tried again and had an ectopic pregnancy (our second) in November of 2011. Now we are pregnant again and I am hoping desperately for a healthy pregnancy !!

I got my BFP on June 22!

Crystal's Space

I'm Crystal and my DH is Nick. He's the love of my life and the most amazing man I've ever met. We balance each other perfectly. We've been together 2 1/2 years and TTC for 1 1/2, we finally got our BFP!

I'm a SAHM of my 8 1/2 y/o DD (and 2 fur Babies). She lights up our lives and DH loves her as his own, he is most definitely her Dad as a Dad should be, teaching her to skate, ride a bike, tucking her in and reading stories, etc.

Hello, I'm Jaime. I am very blessed to have a loving husband and two wonderful children. I always said that I would have two children, but I think that in the back of my mind I knew that I would want more. After the birth of our second I thought that we were done...hubby even had vasectomy appt scheduled but we changed our mind. We were lucky again to get pregnant right away (like with our other two) but unfortunately, Taylor was not ready to join us. Here we are five months later. I'm trying to just stay calm and give this little bean as much positive energy that I can:)

7-5-12 blood draw (11 dpo): hcg level at 26
7-7-12 blood draw (13 dpo): hcg level at 106...yay!!!
7-17-12: first doctor's appt

I'm Harper. DH and I have been together for 10.5 years, and we have two wonderful little boys (3.5 yo and 18mo), and we are now hoping for number three. Unfortunately, this is my sixth pregnancy. The other three ended in first trimester m/c, so I'm more than a little cautious. Still, we are thrilled about my bfp, and can't wait to see what the future has in store!

Hi I'm Wendy, my husband is Paul. I'm 37 years old, he's 44, and we've been married for almost 10 years, and this baby will be our 3rd. We have an 8 year old, James, and a 6 year old, Daniel, so we're hoping for a girl! I got my BFP on Tuesday, and it was confirmed by my OB's office yesterday, and I was given lots of samples of vitamins to get me started. Thrilled and terrified at the same time, this is sort of a surprise, but my husband is acting more excited about this one than he did the other two at this point and he adores both of our boys, to a fault. I'm looking forward to getting to know you guys Wink

My EDD isn't certain yet, as we don't know the LMP for sure, but we're thinking about 3/21/13

This is my oldest DS, James, who is 8:

This one is my younger DS, Danny, who is 6:

And this is a shot of my first BFP, the only one I saw:

Hello, I'm Tara & this will be our 3rd child. We will be married 10 years this December & have been together since we were 16. We had our first son Owen 9/2 /07 & I can not believe that he is going to be five. We had our daughter Brooke 2 years later 11/8/09. They are all consuming so I'm currious about how 3 are going to be. I think my EDD is 3/17/13

My name is Rachael. My husband is Carlo. We have been married for 7 years and are both elementary teachers. We have 3 awesome children already and are expecting our 4th mid March. Our oldest, CJ, is 4. Aurora is 2. And our youngest, Rose, is turning 1 August 11th. None of our pregnancies have been planned but we have always been open to them. I think this fourth baby is coming sooner than expected for my husband, but we're still thrilled!
