Hi I'm Mia. DH, DD and I love the little adventures life brings our way and we're so thrilled to add another little one in the mix. Our EDD is January 3rd 2013 although because we have a history and risk of preterm labor so we might just see a xmas baby. While it's unlikely, I'm hoping to avoid cholestasis this pregnancy and have an uneventful full term pregnancy.

Our Family:
DH and I & DD @ 14 Months old

About Me

Heya! I'm Cindy. I'm 29 years old and married to Richard, 30. We were married April 30th, 2010! We decided to start trying for our first a couple month before our wedding, thinking it would take a while to get pregnant. Nope! I was 8 weeks pregnant with our daughter in this photo!

Our first child, Sophia Ann, was born on Thanksgiving Day (11/25/10). She's been the best thing to EVER happen to me and the greatest joy in my life!

My degree is in English Education and I taught Kindergarten before getting pregnant with my daughter, but I'm a stay at home Mommy for the next few years! I babysit a little boy my daughter's age a few days a week, which is lots of fun for both me and my daughter. Smile

I'm so happy to be pregnant again and have my fingers crossed for a much easier pregnancy!

My name is Jennifer(38) and my husband Tommy(40) and I have been married for 4 years. I have 5 children from my first marriage, he has 4 children from his first marriage and we have one together. We are expecting our #11, (my #7) January 11, but am expecting to go earlier as I have never made it to a due date yet. We are hoping for a girl because we have 7 boys and 3 girls.

Hello! My name is Lisa (33) married to Ben (34). We have been married 12 years (13 in December). We have 5 kiddos--4 girls and 1 boy. This (as of right now) will be our last child. We were hoping for a boy, but we are having another girl, and are still excited to bring this new little one into our family. She is due January 8, 2013.
My family (October 2011)

We announced to our family in July (week of the 11th) with this:

BFP 5/3/12

1st OB visit transvaginal u/s and bloodwork, due date a week later than I thought, but everything looked great.
2nd OB visit heard heartbeat 154 bpm, no weight gain
3rd OB visit (7/24) couldn't find heartbeat via doppler--I was freaking out in my head and praying like crazy that everything was okay. Got to have an u/s and baby was moving around like crazy! So happy! Gained 6 lbs.
4th OB visit (8/16) gender u/s! IT'S A GIRL!!!

Everything looked great--she was moving around--kept her legs together, so it was hard to see what she is and had her arms up by her face the whole time. Trying to agree on a name now...Thinking Alivia or Brylie.

9-13-12 dr. appt. Everything looks good. Gained another 6-7 lbs. Heartbeat was 155. We are pretty sure we will name her Alivia Ann...and we will have a boy name ready, just in case.

10-11-12 dr. appt. Met with the midwife...rethinking my delivery plan--I'd kinda like to deliver with the midwives again. I don't know what my weight gain is...I don't know if I want to. Heartbeat was nice and strong and everything looked good. Passed my glucose test and hemoglobin was good, too. Go back in 4 weeks and meet the newest midwife in the office.
