Name: Katy
EDD: Nov 22nd
Married?: Yep
How long?: 8.5 years
What's your DH/SO think of it?: Amazingly, he was shocked for just a second and then really excited. I was surprised b/c he was the one that originally thought we should be done after 2!
# baby this is for you: 3 (I did have a miscarry b/w 1 and 2)
Good things about pregnancy: definitely feeling the baby kick Smile
Bad things about pregnancy: Headaches! I didn't really have those with the other 2, but they are bad this time. I'm also missing running. I'm still jogging (slowly), but have gone from doing 10 mile runs on avg to 2-3. It's definitely worth it, but I'm someone who uses running as my "me" time and to help clear my mind and decrease crabbiness so I miss it!
How are you doing?: good overall!
Will you find out the gender?: YES! I'm hoping to find out on Tuesday, but will probably not find out until July 3rd
Are you hoping for a boy or girl?: Just a healthy baby, but my almost 5 year old REALLY wants a sister!
Any names?: I love Adelaide (Addie) for a girl. It's starting to grow on DH, but he really likes Hannah the best. We both like Gabriel for a boy.
Anything else you'd like to share?: I so don't feel prepared for 3 kids! I think once I know the gender, maybe it will sink in and I'll start planning more. I can't believe I will be 17 weeks at the end of this week! I am definitely excited for a little baby though!!

Name: Lacy

EDD: 1 Nov

Married?: Yes

How long?: 4 years

What's your DH/SO think of it?: Excited but nervous!!

# baby this is for you: First baby - we had been TTC for quite some time. Finally was able to get pregnant with IVF on first (and was going to be only due to cost) attempt. I had a very low egg count available. Was only able to retrieve 3 and transfer one. We are very blessed!

Good things about pregnancy: Knowing that we are bringing a little one into this world - someone that is half me and half DH.

Bad things about pregnancy: Difficulties in getting pregnant has made me very nervous that the pregnancy goes well.

How are you doing?: I'm doing great...didn't really get nauseous our anything.

Will you find out the gender?: Yes and we have already found out it is going to be a little girl.

Are you hoping for a boy or girl?: DH was really hoping for a boy but when we found out that it was going to be a girl, he said, "I guess it's not always what you want but what you need...I guess I needed a daughter" and has been very happy.

Any names?: Hayley June

Anything else you'd like to share?: I found out that I have an anterior placenta and therefore I probably won't feel the baby for a while! :mad:

Name: Eileen

EDD: 11/26

Married?: Yup

How long?: 5 years in August

What's your DH/SO think of it?: Happy, we planned and tried for 7 months with a m/c the cycle before. He's reading a book now called The Birth Partner: The Birth Partner, Third Edition: A Complete Guide to Childbirth for Dads, Doulas, and All Other Labor Companions (Birth Partner: A Complete Guide to Childbirth for Dads, Doulas, &): Penny Simkin: 9781558323575: Amazon.com: Books

# baby this is for you: 2

Good things about pregnancy: That I'll have a baby at the end

Bad things about pregnancy: Too many to count, from vaginal bleeds to lots of sickness, it's been stressful

How are you doing?: Sick on top of pregnancy, but seem to be recovering

Will you find out the gender?: YES on 7/1

Are you hoping for a boy or girl?: either is fine, but I'll put money down that it is a boy

Any names?: Working on that, we have a girl name, and a list of maybe boy names, but are having trouble agreeing. We have the added trouble of my husband having an accent so some names don't roll of his tongue easily.

Anything else you'd like to share?: I've done zero prep for this baby, I think I'm waiting for the anatomy scan. But this one will be in my room for most likely their first year, before sharing with their sister, so not much really needed at this point. I was gifted a brand new infant car seat, so I can get the baby home, and then pop up a pack n play for them to sleep in, we're good to go!

Also I've lost 15 pounds this pregnancy, I'm overweight so no worries from the medical professionals. I'm sure I'll start gaining at some point, but maybe I won't get above my pre preg weight?
