    First Doctor Appointment: I already had one on the 6th and a follow up on the 9th for more blood work

    What's your TTC Story? We were originally in the January room and I found out at my 10 week apt that our baby wasn't with us any more and at 11 wks I miscarried with help of medication. I was waiting to get my period and DH and I hadn't decided if we wanted to try again or not. Then one Friday I notices that I was peeing like crazy and a light bulb went off. I picked up a test and took it Sat morning. We had been using condoms religiously, so how we got pregnant we have no idea. The day before my doctor appointment to confirm the pregnancy and talk to my new doctor I started spotting. He ordered blood work to see if I was miscarrying this one as well and my hcg came back 100 so I went back Friday for a follow up hcg test. I have been spotting for a week now and am currently waiting for rests from that test to see if I will be sticking around or not. Time will tell.
    Anything else you'd like to add? I am so excited for all of you girls! My DD was born April 1st, so if this baby sticks we will have two April babies.

    Taking it easy now! Wouldn't have known I was even pregnant unless I took a test today just for kicks! Didn't realize that I was even late, that's how much I wasn't trying this month. lol! Really hope that we get to stay on this board this time! Boobs are sore, last time they weren't. I do have slight crampy feeling today but I think it's more of a pulling feeling. Because of last month the cramps make me kind of nervous.

    DS -
    Fur baby - "dog dog", 4 year old shepherd mix.
    Other "Pets" - none
    BFP Date: 10/15/13
    How did you tell SO? Handed him the test and said "we're pregnant."
    Due - 6/27/14
    First Doctor Appointment: Thursday (10/18) at the RE for beta, Monday 10/22 at the OB.
    Do you want to know the sex - No
    Does DH want to know the sex - No
    Gender Guess: Not sure. With my daughter, I knew the moment we conceived that we were having a girl.
    Have you told anyone yet? If so, who? If not, when? My DH, the RE and OB, my best friend and my momma. We won't tell anyone else till around 18-20 weeks unless I start showing really early.
    Symptom list: Sort of sore breasts but nothing like with my daughter. My brain is mush though....I have forgotten quite a few things lately and on Saturday my mom even asked me...."are you sure you're not pregnant?!"
    Any names picked out? We have a short list and a boys name picked out from previous list that we didn't use because we had a girl.
    What's your TTC Story? Been trying since my DD was 3 months old and my cycle returned. Miscarried in July. Decided to go back to RE, had a HSG and was getting ready to make the phone call back to the pharmacy for the $1000 medication order for next cycle at the RE's office. Took a test out of the blue since fertility meds are not returnable and....it was positive. I was 3w4d when I found out and 3w3d when I found out with DD. So catching it early this time as well, which is good since I need blood thinners and have a history of losses.
    Anything else you'd like to add?
    Mother to seven flying, called home too soon.

    What's your TTC Story? We started NPPing starting in July. We figured it would happen when it was supposed to and we wanted to enjoy and not be pressured. After a couple months of fun and games we took our annual 'surprise' vacation just the two of us. AF was supposed to start the day we left, but didn't. The last day of our trip I had brown spotting so I thought it was going to start. I told DH that AF was starting to show and we just moved on. I let go of the possibility of being pg and bought a jumbo box of tampons before we left Two days later the spotting had lessened but I still had cramping. I thought stress was to blame for the delay in AF, but took a test anyway so I wouldn't stress more ... faint BFP . The next day I took another - this time FRER and got a very solid BFP! I told DH two days later and we're so excited and happy!
    Anything else you'd like to add? A very HH9M to all the mommas to be!

    What's your TTC Story? TTC since Jan when my cycles resumed after having ds 11months prior. I had a cp in Feb, a m/c in May (resolved in August), and am now pg after my first medicated cycle with Femara and ovidrel.
    Anything else you'd like to add? Even though we have a lot of kiddos we have also had a number of losses which started in my mid-20s. Over the years I have had a variety of testing done to determine the cause of my recurrent pg loss and recently started seeing a reproductive endocrinologist. Earlier this month I was told I have diminished ovarian reserve (dor) and with numbers like mine the odds of having a viable pg with my own eggs is less than 5%. My RE feels this is probably the cause of my losses...my eggs just do not produce viable pgs most of the time. Due to my hormone levels I only produced one mature egg on the fertility meds...I am hoping and praying we caught a healthy one who will beat the odds ♥

    What's your TTC Story? We decided I would stop taking BC in June and we tried like crazy. We really wanted it to be that month because me, his mom and his sister are all pisces. After we got the hang of the charting thing we realized that the due date would have been his sister's birthday! But nope. Next month we did NOT want to conceive because we didn't want an Aries! Ha. The following month we took an amazing road trip to Alaska through Canada before our big move. We weren't trying, but not preventing either. Turned out to be the month and we are expecting our baby in April!
    Anything else you'd like to add? Nope!

    ME - What I do - SAHM
    DH - What he does - Hospital Corpsman for USN
    DD -Hannah Pearl
    DS - Dean Alexander & Logan James
    Fur baby - Oscar 4 year old Shih Tzu(named after Oscar the Grouch and it's very fitting) & Lady 2 year old Rottie (and self proclaimed guardian of our DD Hannah)
    Other "Pets" - One red Betta named Betta
    BFP Date: Sep. 13th
    How did you tell SO? Well I was throwing up for 2 weeks already. I told DH that I was either really sick(like with the flu) or I was pregnant. He got a .99 cent pregnancy test and it was a big old positive. We pretty much were together the whole time. I just walked out of the bathroom laughing...he knew right at that moment. We then finished watching 101 dalmatians with our older children and contemplated how life would be with a 4th child and our plan of action as to how we would fit them into the car. We are thrilled to be having our 4th child.
    Due - May 15
    First Doctor Appointment: Already had it
    Do you want to know the sex -I don't since we already have both sexes and we already have everything we need. DH however does want to know so we will find out
    Gender Guess: I don't have any guesses but DH's guess is another girl.
    Have you told anyone yet? If so, who? If not, when? Yes but only just recently. We waited until I was 3 1/2 month. No reason other than we just had a little girl and we didn't want to shock anyone too early we are thrilled as well as most of our family. There are people we know that were not so thrilled. It's always a bummer telling people that are against the idea of having children so close together...they tend to try and steal your joy away. So we waited until we couldn't wait any longer. It all worked out and now everyone knows
    Symptom list: Crazy bad morning sickness(I'm pretty sure I started getting sick as soon as the baby stuck) the sickness is starting to fade to just mornings now. Of course I'm sleepy and I have the occasional mood swing. That's it for now though.
    Any names picked out? Yeah we have names for both sexes.
    What's your TTC Story? Well we were not trying for this baby I was on birth control(low dose though) and I was 100% nursing. My husband was in the proses of getting paper work done for a vasectomy. It's not that we didn't want a 4th child in fact it's been my dream to have 4. We were just trying to be "realistic" with our life/money/future. I prayed A LOT wanting to know if 3 was the perfect number for us and I got my answer in the form of a BFP
    Anything else you'd like to add? I'm really excited to be on this forum again. It's sooner then I thought I would be back but God will see everything through and I'm over the moon at the thought of having another child. DH and I will be out of the Navy in about 19 months ! He'll then take up work as an LVN back East where he will take a bridge course to RN. We're excited for where God is taking our family and even more excited to be out of the military before our children are too much older. I pray to spend a happy and healthy 5 to 6 more months with you ladies

    DS- Dean(4 years), Dean's twin 8 weeks DS-Logan(3 years), DD-Hannah(1 year), DD- Abigail(1 month), We're a big family and loving every minute of it
