About us Married for 10 years this July. Together for 14 years. Our son Luke is 3 and has been a wonderful part of our lives. I will start working as a primary care doc in Minnesota in September. Until then I have to study for boards and then we are going to travel. After that we are really looking forward to giving him a sibling; hopefully our family will be complete early next year.
Names: Hayden Christopher, Caleb Augustine, Ethan Amelia Clare, Greta Rose, Amara Elise

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.
I'm so happy to be pregnant again and have my fingers crossed for a much easier pregnancy!
EDD January 31st
Ultrasound at 8 weeks!
5/30/12 - HCG at 3699
5/30/12 - Starting to track blood sugar again. Had gestational diabetes during my last pregnancy and my fasting sugar is a little high.
6/22/12 - First ultrasound! Heartbeat is 179 and baby wiggling like crazy!
7/9/12- First prenatal appointment. We got to see baby on an ultrasound; he/she was wiggling around like last time and we got to see an itty bitty foot. It was adorable. Heartbeat was 159.

My name is Holly. I'm married to my wonderful husband, Todd, going on 7 years this June. We have three beautiful children: Addison (6), Lauryn (4), and Cameron (1). We also have one angel watching out for our kiddos. When I'm not busy tending to my children, I am an elementary school teacher, and I love every minute of it! My kids are starting to get old enough for sports so they keep us on the go, but I love my life as a mommy!!

Girl: Reagan Mae
6.8.12 Unexpected u/s....showed a baby measuring 5w6d with a heartbeat!
6.15.12 First OB appointment-met with doctor. Discussed my due date and decided to go in between the two, so 1.26.13 it is! Also discussed when repeat c/s would be and plans for b/c after baby comes.
7.5.12 OB Appointment with NP. I heard peanut!!! HB of 173 bpm
8.1.12 Great appointment. BP was 126/72, up 3 lbs, and hb of 152 bpm!!
8.31.12 Good appointment. BP was 109/62, up 5 lbs, and a hb of 142 bpm! I go back in 1 week for an u/s because peanut is measuring a wee bit small.
9.6.12 Ultrasound showed everything to be normal. Tech took a guess at the gender, but I'm keeping it a secret
9.27.12 Good appointment. Baby's hb was right around 140. Only bad thing (for me) was that I've gained 8 lbs in 4 weeks. Blah! Go back in a few weeks.

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:
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.
