So good to meet you ladies!!!!
Me - Kirsten - 34
What I do - Teach religion at all-girls Catholic High School (more specifically - Hebrew Scripture/Old Testament)
Other kids - DS Eamon (Irish for Edward) turning 3 in December :feellove:
BFP Date - 10/1/2012
How did you tell SO? - Woke him up first thing in the morning to come downstairs and see hpts (took 2 -one regular, one digital)
Due date - June 9th!
First Doctor Appointment - Wednesday 10/17 for an u/s and visit (because I had a mc in January)
Do you want to know the sex - Yes and no. We didn't find out the first time and it was wonderful, but now I think we'd like to know for planning. I think we will find out and keep it a secret from everyone else though, if we do find out!
Does DH want to know the sex - Yes!
Gender Guess - I'm kinda secretly hoping it is another boy, but any healthy baby is a gift from God!
Have you told anyone yet? - My mom knows. My grandmother and next-younger sister are suspicious, but I told them it is "inconclusive" yesterday! :silly:
Symptom list - frequent urination, uterine cramping, very sore breasts, tired/winded easily
Any names picked out? - Amelia Christine for a girl (my maternal great-grandmother and grandmother's names)...and Eoin David for a boy (Eoin is 'Owen' - Irish for John, my grandfather's name, and David is my dad's name); So they all have family significance!
What's your TTC Story? - started ttc last November. Got pg in December, miscarried in January. Tried all spring and was stressed/overeating. In May decided to take off the summer and start again in September. Had a "Zen Summer" to try to get myself together the best I could to be in the best place for a bfp: Lost about 20 lbs on Weight Watchers and exercised regularly; and started seeing a therapist for talk therapy. Used CBEFM and OPK to officially try again in September and it worked!!!
Anything else you'd like to add? - DH is from Ireland, the only one of his family here in the US, so this adds a lot of color to our little world! (hee hee) I was also in the Dec 09 DD room, and had such a great experience. I'm really looking forward to getting to know all of you!!!!! :grouphug::hug:
