Hello everyone! I'm Kitty! (aka Mona). I just turned 29 and DH will be turning 37 shortly. This is our second BFP! I had an ectopic in December so have been very cautious of this one. This will be our first child and we are very very excited! We also have a cat who is definitely our fur son!!!
BetasFirst beta 15 DPO on February 8, 186 and progesterone was 18.something. OB started me on 100mg prometrium twice a day, I guess she is just extra cautious since that number seems fine.
Second beta 17 DPO on February 10 was 473!!!!!!!!!! YIPPEEEE!
Third beta 19 DPO on February 12 was 1325!!!! WOW!!!
March 15th, first official prenatal appointment. Nothing too exciting. Bloodwork, blood pressure, weight, urine sample, etc. Next appointment in 4 weeks.
April 14 second appointment. Went in on April 12 due to bleeding. Heard heartbeat 167!!! Uterus measuring 14 weeks! OB says I can go off prometrium but I'm going to taper off.
May 10 third appointment. Just the usual. FHR 155!
Big u/s booked for May 31! By dates 20w1d, measured 20w5d.
24 week appointment, heart rate 145-150s, fundus measuring 27 weeks!

Dh is phil and I've been rocking his last name since 2007.

Unfortunately we also have suffered through many losses. Our angel babies will never be forgotten & we know that they watch over Ethan and Gummy Bear.
This pregnancy caught us by surprise. We had a loss and a D&C in December '09 and found out Feb 2 2010 that we were pregnant again before my period even returned.

My DH and I were married in June 2009. We started TTC right away. This will be our first baby!!
My current doctor won't see me until I'm 12 weeks along, so I'll wait a little ways before scheduling my appt.
BFP at 12 DPO!!!
EDD October 19, 2010
Will update with pic's later

I did it, I turned 31 (shhhhh.....I'm not telling anyone else that I went and did that) recently. I have been married to the love of my life, Scott for 6 wonderful years. I have an 11 year old DD from a previous relationship and an 18 month old DS. We spent 4 years TTC DS, spent thousands on fertility treatment, finally quit and got pg within 3 months. This time we started TTC in June 09, got pg in August, m/c'd in September and finally got our BFP on Valentine's Day!!! We are elated, but very cautious. You girls are the only ones that know as of right now.
I also play volleyball still on a competitive coed league, which I won't quit doing until I'm too uncomfortable.
I live and breath horses and I really miss riding when I'm pregnant, but it's just too uncomfortable for me. I'll add some pictures later of the campsite we go to almost every weekend in the spring and fall with the family and the horses and spend the weekend riding. It's in the Shawnee National Forest and is some of the prettiest scenery in the world!!!
EDD is October 31, 2010
February 14th at 8 DPO
I started spotting on 2/19/10 and spotted through 2/20/10. Called the doctors office on the Monday the 22nd and got in for blookwork. The beta came back at 424. They had me come back on Wednesday the 24th and do more bloodwork. That beta came back at 881!!! We were ecstatic!
My first appointment with the nurse to do family history was on February 24th.
Appointment with a midwife to discuss a homebirth is April 7th!!!
My first doctors appointment will be April 15th. It seems like forever!

Molly, 25 my DH is 31. We got married Jan. 15 2005 and started trying in October 2009. We have 10 furbabies and 1 featherbaby. My biggest caution is my starting weight which is 255lbs.
