Hi, I'm Angela (27.) I'm from Central California. I've been married to my DH Michael (30) who works in solar for 6 years. Together we have a DS Logan (5) and we are expecting #2 finally after 21 cycles! A little about me. I enjoy many hobbies like running, knitting, sewing, crafts of all kinds, and WoW. I'm going to school to be an Elementary school teacher, I plan to attend Fresno State starting Spring 2013 to finish my Bachelors. I also hope to start substitute teaching in elementary grades this fall! (I take my CBEST in a just a few short weeks!) My brother was kill in Iraq in 2006 by friendly fire/homicide, 2 months before my wedding. I miss him everyday. In 2010 we decided to start TTC for #2 and I was diagnosed with PCOS and started fertility treatments. After 20 cycles (6 with clomid) we finally switched to a fertility specialist (in Dec 2011) and tried clomid + ovidrel in March, we got our BFP on the first go and here we are! I've had an extremely rough 6 years but feel so blessed with my family.

BFP: March 18th
EDD: Nov 29

My Hero, I miss you everyday! RIP

I still cant believe that I am here!!! Yahoo My family is so excited about this pregnancy (so let's hope it sticks!!), which is lovely because my last pregnancy was a bit of a shock for everyone! Blum 3

I am 23, married to Michael ( 28 ) who is an architect and we have two children. Holly (4) is my daughter, and Xander (5) is my step son. DSS is part Maori so I am learning to speak Maori in order to help maintain his te reo (Maori language), so if anyone is interested in exotic languages...:p

I am a substitute teacher, I teach preschool and primary school age children (I do prefer primary) and have been doing this for about a year. DD attends a montessori preschool and is very independent and creative, loves art, music and writing stories. DSS is at school and he is the perfectionist of the family, he is quite placid in nature but still enjoys most 'boy' things.

Hi, My name is Ashley and DH and I have been married for 8 years. We have a beautiful son, Benjamin, who is 6 and a daughter, Claire who just turned 4. We just recently found out we are expecting our third, probably in December and are SUPER excited!! Smile We are also hesitant as we had a m/c in December of 2008. We decided to take a break from trying while I went back to nursing school. I currently work in a NICU at a local hospital.

We have our first prenatal appointment on May 1st, and are hoping to get to see our little peanut!!

edd December 11, 2012; born November 27, 2012

DH and I have been married for 6 years and we have 2 beautiful children. Gavin was 5 in September and Elizabeth was 3 in July.

Our family September 2011

We had talked about having a 3rd child but decided to wait so that the baby would be born at the beginning of the new year. I made the mistake of playing with my birth control so that I wouldn't have AF while on vacation. Well, a month later I missed my period and took a HPT.


April 24th - confirmation of pregnancy and prenatal blood work
May 10th - dating ultrasound
May 31st - prenatal appointment
June 28th - prenatal appointment
July 24th - gender ultrasound
August 9th - prenatal appointment
September 7th - prenatal appointment
September 11th - glucose testing
October 9th - prenatal appointment
October 15th - growth ultrasound
October 23rd - prenatal appointment
November 19th - prenatal appointment
November 22 - growth ultrasound
November 26 - prenatal appointment

May 10th - no picture but saw 1 baby with arm and leg buds and a flickering heart. Tech held wand steady over uterus and we could see baby moving on his/her own. Due date adjusted 3 days.

July 24th - gender is a girl! Baby measuring right at 20 weeks so no adjustment to due date. HB=144BPM, growth is 48th percentile. Everything looks good.

October 15th - growth ultrasound requested by my doctor as I am measuring 2cm smaller than normal. Check amniotic fluid levels and baby position. Fluid levels are normal and baby is laying transverse along my right side. No picture but confirmed once again it is a girl!

November 23rd - 2nd growth ultrasound requested by my doctor as baby is still measuring smaller than normal.

Sarah Brianne
After blood work done on Monday, November 26th showed low platelets and high liver enzymes, my doctor contacted me Tuesday morning and told me I would have to deliver in Saskatoon where they had facilities to help should anything go wrong during delivery. She asked if I had a specific doctor I wished to be referred to (I didn't) and then contacted the hospital. The obstetrician she talked to decided I should be induced immediately and after organizing pet sitting and child care, we were off to Saskatoon to be induced. We arrived at the hospital around 2pm and they immediately ran more blood work and a NST on the baby. Baby was happy and vitals were great. My blood work showed platelets had dropped again so the decision was made to induce. I was moved to labour and delivery and an oxytocin drip was started at 5:10pm. I started getting uncomfortable but nothing painful. Doctor came in at 6:40 and ruptured membranes but was unable to get gush of water as baby's head was low. I was left alone and oxytocin kept getting increased every 30 minutes until 9:45 when doctor came back and attempted to break water again. This time a contraction helped and my water broke right away. Contractions immediately started getting painful and I asked for epidural. It was 10:30 before I got the epidural and as soon as it was in and I laid back down I was hit by 2 extremely painful contractions and the nurse yelled that baby was crowning. A second nurse ran into the room in time to help deliver the baby and doctor arrived to cut the umbilical cord. Sarah Brianne arrived at 11:11pm weighing 5lbs 12oz and was 18 3/4 inches long. She had an AGPAR of 9 and was perfectly pink in colour!

DH and I have been together three years now and got married two years ago in July. We have a daughter Emma who will be 2 in August. She was a big surprise but she's the love of our lives. We are so excited to be adding another baby to our family! EDD is January 3rd 2013 although we have a history and risk of preterm labor so we might just see a xmas baby. Biggrin

Belly Shots:

Ultrasound Pictures!

Appointments and Notes:
5/17 Went in at MW request for appointment due to bad cramping on right side. Had u/s to rule out ectopic pregnancy baby is in uterus, left ovary is under uterus, thinking I O'd from that side and cyst is causing pain. Baby measuring right on with dates at 7 weeks. Heartbeat was great at 133 bpm. Biggrin

5/25/12 Initial Prenatal Appointment w/ my favorite Midwife. All went well.

6/26 - NT Scan & Bloodwork NT went well although baby was giving the tech a hard time with getting the measurement. Baby's heart rate was 167 and baby was measuring a day ahead (12 weeks 6 days).

7/4 - ICP blood work testing and started meds to treat itching (came back normal will retest w/next blood work unless itching worsens.

6/27 - Everything was good. Started H17 shots this week.

8/10 - Anatomy scan & cervical length check. It's a BOY!!! Yahoo
