My DH and I were married July 7, 2007. This past August, DH and I decided it was time to start TTC. We immediately got pregnant, but lost the baby late September.

On December 22nd, I got a faint line on a dollar tree test (honestly, I thought it was an evap line, but I saw it during the alloted time frame). The next day I tested again, and got a slightly darker line. The night of December 23rd, I took a digital test and got this:

Based on my LMP my EDD is September 2nd. FF has my EDD at September 5th. I will make a doctor's appointment at the end of the first week of January. I want to make sure that we will have a heartbeat by my first appointment!

The winning chart:

How I told DH:

We were out of town at my parents house.

Upcoming doctor appointments:

January 13 @ 1:45 with midwife: Saw baby!! Baby is measuring exact with my O date at 6w3d. We saw the little heartbeat flickering! Blood was drawn, will check progesterone level to make sure that didn't cause my m/c in September.

January 15- B/w came back. Progesterone level is a 13.9 (11-45 is healthy range). Was called in progesterone supplements to take every other day for the next four weeks.

February 10 @ 10 weeks with midwife: Went great!! I have gained 5 pounds :eek: but she was happy about that. I'm not. lol We got another ultrasound to see the heartbeat. They didn't think the doppler would pick it up. Baby measured 35mm and was bouncing around!! Smile Heart rate was 154. We saw the little arms and legs moving. Go back in two weeks, to make sure all is well with my progesterone supplements still.

First picture!! Heartbeat was seen!! YAYAYAY!! Baby measuring exact with O date: 6w3d.



10w3d- Ultrasound because doppler had bad speakers and mw was afraid wouldn't be able to hear baby.

Valentines Day (11 weeks even): We heard the heartbeat on our home doppler! It was the best sound ever!! I had the biggest smile on my face.

February 24, 2009 (12w3d)- Heard baby on doppler, though the speakers were not good. lol Kicked at doppler a couple of times and scared my mw. lol Surprise ultrasound to measure baby! Baby looked like it was using my uterus as a trampoline! Smile

March 10th (14w 3d)- Regular midwife appointment: I get to "officially" stop taking the progesterone! I "unofficially" stopped 4 days ago. The itching has stopped!! YAY! We heard the baby's heartbeat! Nice, strong, and LOUD! She was very excited about this. She said we can relax now and enjoy this pregnancy!! SmileSmileSmile Our next appointment is in 4 weeks!! The longest we have went without an appoinment!! She said we could come in after 2 weeks, but since we have a doppler at home, I'm feeling good about coming in after 4. They will do the BIG U/S then!!!

March 16th (15w 2d)- After two weeks of going "Was that the baby?", today was the day.... and there was no denying it. I felt the baby ALL DAY! For some reason, the baby doesn't like the way I sit in the car, because all car ride long I was getting a little something here and little something there. I am so excited!! I can't believe it!!

March 17th (15w 3d)- lol I felt the baby again today! Now I know I wasn't crazy yesterday! YAY!

March 23rd (16w 2d)- Tonight I was sitting at the computer, leaned over and I think the baby did a complete flip in my stomach. I think the way I was sitting helped me be able to feel it so well. This was the craziest feeling I've ever felt. lol It made my heart and stomach feel weird.

April 7th (18w 3d)- BIG U/S!! Had a really, really great appt today! They took some blood to check my thyroid and the tri-screen b/w (I'm thinking). She is very happy that I've only gained 11 lbs. :eek: Figures I would get the liberal midwife on weight. THEN it was time for the u/s!! I layed down and she went straight for the legs. Of course our LO was laying with her legs crossed, Indian style. She waited about a minute before she rubbed my belly to get the baby to move their legs. Then, the baby had their hand in front of the goods. I joked and said, "It has to be a boy, with their hand near their crotch." lol Then we got a good shot....

ITS A GIRL!!!!! Anabella Juliette!
lol Upside down baby:


Sweet little baby's profile

Back shot

April 18, 2009 (20 weeks even): DH and I were listening to the doppler today, and she kicked right at the probe thing. So, I had DH clean the gel off and put his hand there. About 2 minutes later, she kicked again. He got to feel her!!! I told him I'm a little jealous because I haven't even felt her on the outside yet. Wink

May 5, 2009 (22w 3d)- Had a great appointment. I am up *gulp* 18 pounds so far. I told DH I really should have taken the 5lb weight out of my pocket before going in. Wink Told them about my "leaking". Had an ultrasound to insure that it is not amniotic fluid that is leaking, but actually ....urine.... :rolleyes: Figures my little girl, likes to use my bladder for bouncing on or something.

Now for the cutest u/s pictures ever. lol Anabella sucking her thumb:

June 9th (27w 3d)- Had another great appointment today! Baby had a growth spurt! Last appointment, I measured 23 cm. This appointment I am measuring 29 cm. :eek: I have gained 25 pounds, which my m/w is cool with. They took blood since I had my GD test. Yuck. Will know the results July 1st at my next appointment. Had my last ultrasound today. She was very tired, yawning and drinking the whole time. We could see her stick out her little tongue. It was so cute. Smile She weighs approximently 2.4 lbs. Here she is at 27w.


Her little face with chubby cheeks:


The cutest foot in the world (lol, it looks just like mine!):

Anabella Juliette was born July 14 at 10:30 am, weighing 4 lbs 5.5 oz. Smile She was born at a little over 32 weeks. She was in the NICU for 19 days, but was absolutely perfect. She just had to get a little bigger.

DBF & I have been together since Nov 2001.

Started TTC :lovebed: in July '04. Got BFP in Nov '05. Had an U/S at 13wks & unfortunately showed bean at only 7 wks. Had D&C 2 weeks later.

We went through numerous tests and procedures (HSG, SA, Lap, b/w, etc) The only thing that may have caused our unexplained infertility is a slightly lower than average sperm count... We tried Clomid for 6 months - nothing.

Finally we tried IUI w/Clomid (1st one in Nov 08 & 2nd in Dec 08 ) and got our BFP Jan 1st '09!

After almost 5 years of TTC - we're extremely happy & hoping this will be our miracle baby.

4wk 1 d - beta 64
4wk 4 d - beta 218
5wk 1 d - beta 857
5wk 5 d - beta 2950

Reserving my space here.. will update later with pics.

I married my high school sweetheart July 26 2003. We have 2 furbabies (cats) Java and Kona and 5 fishbabies.

We decided in 2008 it was time to start a family and had my first BFP in Sept. It lasted a few glorious weeks until I found out it was a ectopic pregnancy.

After a few more months of trying, I had another BFP on Jan 4 2009. Hope this one sticks!

I'm Jess. Married to DH Romie for almost 8 years. We have 2 beautiful children. Mia Angelique is 4. She is my Clomid baby. After having her I had a Lapband put in. The result was 80 pounds lost. I'm convinced this helped my pcos and fertility issues. We also have 1 son.. Jace Keenan. he's 18 months old. He was concieved on 1st try. Now we are expecting #3. Not exactly sure on my due date. According to LMP is would be 9/3. I'll add pics after I tell DH!

Appointments & Journal

2-10 First OB appointment and U/S: Everything looked GREAT, baby was measuring a week behind just like I thought it would.
3-20 Second OB appointment: Heard heartbeat for first time, such an awesome sound! Asked a lot of questions, and decided I may be more comfortable with a midwife.
[COLOR=DarkOrchid]4-2 Felt baby roll around in my tummy! So cool!

4-6 Walk-in OB appointment: Thought I had a UTI, turns out I was just having lots of ligament pain, a few random BH contractions, and feeling a little baby movement.
4-20 First Midwife appointment: LOVED my midwife, got to hear a great heartbeat, around 160, and confirmed that I'm feeling baby move while she was listening to the doppler! Also warned me that I may start lactating
4-21 Officially decided I have a very active baby, it has moved the last 5 days in a row with no sign of stopping for more than a few hours!
4-30 Realized I can feel the outline of where the baby is hanging out when I lay down! DH felt it too, so cool! Can't wait to feel those kicks on the outside. This little one doesn't seems to like kicking my belly, but prefers my bladder, cervix, and other random organs.

5-7 Big ultrasound appointment, found out we are having a very healthy baby boy!! His name will be Hunter Lane S*****!
5-23 Realize that the weird belly pains I have been having since about week 14 are Braxton Hicks contractions, go to see the midwife who says I am fingertip dialated and 40% effaced. After having 6+ contractions in an hour, I head to the hospital, where they confirm contractions but do nothing and send me home because I am only 23 weeks. Going on bedrest, and not going back to that hospital.
6-4 Have an appointment with a Perinatologist, who does another ultrasound and says Hunter is indeed very healthy, and my cervix is long and thick, 3.5 cm, so I can go to partial bed rest instead of full bed rest.
6-10 Find out we can no longer afford the midwife, and decide to switch to an OB both because of cost and because of my contraction complications. We find a great natural birth friendly OB, and make an appointment for the next Wednesday!
6-17 We have our first appointment with the new OB, but do not get to meet her as she is out that day. Have an ultrasound where they tell us Hunter is frank breech, but he still has plenty of time to flip.
6-19 Back to Labor & Delivery after timeable contractions about 8 minutes apart lasting a few hours. I get put on a monitor which confirms, and get 3 shots of terbutaline over the 5 hour stay to stop the contractions. I am told to stay off my feet and keep my next appointment with my OB.
6-30 Appointment with OB, finally get to meet her and LOVE her, she answers all my questions and gets me another ultrasound since my contractions have started to get painful and I now feel them in my lower back and crampy sensations in my lower belly. Ultrasound shows that my cervix is down around 2.5, so we get to go back in 2 days.
7-2 Back at the OB, they check my cervix again, no change, and get a Fetal Fibronectin test, which I find out later was negative. So they'll see us back next week!
7-9 I get another FFN, which also comes back negative, and my cervix is actually a little longer. What they previously thought was funneling may just be my oddly shaped mucus plug, so I go back in 2 weeks. I get a prescription for oral Terbutaline just in case my contractions get regular again.
7-11 I have a bout of contractions 5 minutes apart for several hours, so I take a terbutaline and they calm down. This continues EVERY DAY for the next 5 days, with the terbutaline getting less effective each time. On 7-14 they recommend doubling my dose, so I do and it helps a little more, but they still come back.
7-16 I go in to the OB to check on these insane contractions. She recommends a trip to Labor & Delivery to get them stopped and run another FFN after they check my cervix again. Cervix length is now down to 1.75, so MUCH shorter and a little definite "beaking" now, so we head over to Labor & Delivery. FFN comes back negative, but with the crazy contractions they decide to keep me overnight. I get steroid shots to mature Hunter's lungs in case he comes early, 3 shots of terbutaline, a new drug given orally called procardia, an IV to keep up my fluids, and end up needing an oral dose of terbutaline in the morning. Even with all that the contractions only slow down, don't stop completely for long. I'll be on the procardia every 6 hours until 36 weeks or I deliver, whichever comes first, with terbutaline for contractions that break through. Had a great visit with a NICU nurse about what to expect if Hunter makes an early appearance! I go back for another ultrasound and OB visit Tuesday morning, until then I'm back on full bed rest.

Kelly's Space

My name is Kelly (29), DH- John (32) and our daughter Skyla Helen was born Feb 2nd, 2008! We are very happy expecting another baby. I took a test because I didn't feel well and it came up positive right away. I am guessing this baby will be a boy because that is what the Chinesse gender chart says (it was the only thing right for my daughter) although I would love to have another girl!

Conception: Around Dec 15th around day 35 of my cycle!
First apt: Tues, Jan 20th- We saw the heartbeat and everything looks great! Measuring 7 weeks, 1 day along. Due Date Sep 9th!!
Next apt- Feb 9th ( 10 weeks)- Saw baby moving all around and saw the heartbeat, but haven't heard it yet! Everything is looking great!
March 3rd (13 weeks)- We heard the heartbeat and it was 155 bpms!
March 14th- (14 weeks)- surprise ultrasound and found out we are having a boy!
March 20th- (16 weeks)- met with my regular doctor, heard the heartbeat and got AFP testing done!

About Us:
Rich and I have known each other a little more then 2 years now. We met online in a multiplayer game called Puzzle Pirates. We quickly became very good friends and over several months grew extremely close. I was going through some rough things at the time, including a separation from my now ex-husband. Rich was like my rock during that time and before that year was out I knew that I needed to meet him in person. Rich is American and I am Canadian, so there was a bit of distance between us, as well as a 19 year age difference. In February 2008, I made a trip to see him, and everything clicked. I was living with him between last November and this past April, and although we always talked about having kids together, I never thought it would really happen this quickly!

Currently we are having to live apart but are hoping to be back together as a family shortly after the baby is born here in Canada.

Reserving my space!! Yahoo

BFP==Jan 15th

EDD==Sept 25th

Had my first doctor's appointment with all the fun poking and prodding two weeks ago.

First U/S scheduled for Feb 27th Blum 3

**Heard the baby's heartbeat today (2/20/09)!!! I work in an ER and snuck the doppler to the back room! Yay!!!

*Ultrasound went great! We saw a very active little bean, and just one! HB 160/min. Smile

Yahoo We are having a boy!!! So thrilled and excited to have little Kasen complete our family!!! Yahoo

5/30/09- Just a quick update on how we are doing...Kasen is starting to get more and more active. He loves to kick whenever I eat anything and lay down. I love to feel him move!!!! We have our 3D sono in two weeks and we can't wait to (hopefully) get a sneak peek at our beautiful boy!!!

6/17/09--We had our 3D sono today. Kasen was weighing in at 2lbs, 4 oz already!! The tech said she could tell he had a head full of hair !! (watch him be bald when he is born lol)... Every day he is moving more and more and loves to punch my bladder lol. Only a few short months and he will be here.

**We have an "official date" for our c-section....September 17th!!! I am thrilled but anxious to get things done.
