    ME - What I do -Rachel (28)-I am a SAHM
    DH - What he does -Ryan(27) assistant customer service manager at a Kroger division store
    DD - Ava 3.5 and Olivia 22 months (2 next month!)
    DS -None
    Fur baby -None
    Other "Pets" -Just my children. They can be as wild and messy as any pet ;)
    BFP Date: 11/7/13
    How did you tell SO? Showed him the stick
    Due -Somewhere in the July 13-20th ballpark. The 13th by LMP but I always ovulate very late so I think it is likely much later.
    First Doctor Appointment:Will call tomorrow
    Do you want to know the sex -no
    Does DH want to know the sex -He's on the fence but will likely go with whatever I want to do.
    Gender Guess:girl
    Have you told anyone yet? If so, who? If not, when? Only online friends and my sister because she is pregnant and also due in July.
    Symptom list: Really nothing to speak of. My boobs hurt a little bit earlier and I am starting to get some twinging cramps.
    Any names picked out? Not really. I love the name Ruby for a girl but DH claims to hate it. We'll see if I can get him talked around to it.
    What's your TTC Story? We have been NPP since November 2012 and started actively TTC in February 2013 which is when I got my first pp AF after DD#2. I had 4 failed clomid cycles earlier this year and made the decision to stop TTC and lose some weight to hopefully increase our odds of getting pregnant. We were not NPP and I quit charting when I got my BFP today. Surprise!
    Anything else you'd like to add? My due date is almost exactly what it was for the baby I lost between my girls and that makes me feel a little nervous about it but on the other hand I feel like it makes it a meant to be kind of thing.

    What's your TTC Story? This is my 21st confirmed pregnancy. We have 8 biological kiddos, 1 adopted from foster care when he was 2yrs old, and we have had 12 losses all together. Ten of them were prior to 11wks and two of them were in the 2nd tri at 19wks and 15wks (both boys).

    When my first pp af showed up in January 2013 we were referred to an RE because of my history of loss. My Jan cycle was a bust, I had a cp in Feb, and by the time I saw the RE I was pg again but it ended with a suspected ectopic, methotrexate injection, and finally a d&c. In Sept I was diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve meaning I don't have many good eggs left and my chances of a successful pg are less than 5%. Even with terrible odds we decided to move forward using Femara with the intent of stimming 2-4 follies in hopes of one of the follies having a good egg but that cycle ended with a cp and ruptured ovarian cyst. I consulted with another RE for a 2nd opinion and he recommended aggressive IVF because of my low ovarian reserve...that's just not an option for us at this point, so this cycle we added injectables to the femara and here I am hoping for a sticky bean!

    Anything else you'd like to add? If things progress well I'll get an u/s with my RE sometime around 6-9wks (not sure with the holidays) and then transfer care to the high-risk obs. I've never met them so I'm excited but nervous too . I've only delivered with an ob once. I've had 1 planned hospital birth with an ob, 4 homebirths with midwives, 1 planned homebirth that ended with a transport to the hospital, and 2 planned hospital births with nurse-midwives. Just hoping for the best and feeling optimistic!

    Let's get this rolling!

    ME - What I do - Jessica (34) loan officer at a credit union
    DH - What he does - R. (39) UPS worker
    DD -
    DS -
    Fur baby - Buster (12 yo) Chocolate Lab
    Other "Pets" -
    BFP Date: Thanksgiving Day November 28
    How did you tell SO? I woke up super early to take the test, got back in bed and told him
    Due - Aug 2
    First Doctor Appointment: Meet with Nurse Practicioner Dec 18
    Do you want to know the sex - Yes
    Does DH want to know the sex - IDK
    Gender Guess: girl
    Have you told anyone yet? If so, who? If not, when? Best Friend. I have no clue when to tell everyone else. Would like to at Christmas, but part of me wants to wait until I'm a bit further along, and have had an ultrasound
    Symptom list: Super sore breasts! Fatigue like crazy!
    Any names picked out? I have names I like, but no clue if DH likes them
    What's your TTC Story? Nothing really. I was previously married, and tried for a year and a half with no luck. We divorced before finding out who's problem it was. I was quite sure that it was a problem with me, so in July when I ran out of birth control, and had no insurance, my current sweetie and I decided we just would stop preventing pregnancy. We weren't charting or anything like that, we thought we would start doing that after we got married in March, and I again had insurance. You know, I was thinking this could take a while. I was 24 and it didn't happen in a year and a half, I'm 34 now. Well needless to say, it only took about 4 months for me to end up pregnant. No insurance, and bad timing (thank goodness I hadn't bought a dress yet for the wedding) but still very happy, and we'll work thru it
    Anything else you'd like to add?
    Jessica (34) DH (39) This is a first for both of us

    ME - What I do - I'm Kate. I'm a Hospice RN.
    DH - What he does - Mike, works in manufacturing
    DD - Becca, turns 4 in February
    DS - n/a
    Fur baby - none
    Other "Pets" - a snake!
    BFP Date:12/23
    How did you tell SO? Went to him while he was still in bed, and said, "Looks like you fertilized my egg again." Sounds weird, but we don't get that excited over BFP's any more, after having had 4 miscarriages.
    Due - 8/31 or 9/1 I guess
    First Doctor Appointment: to be determined
    Do you want to know the sex - I guess so
    Does DH want to know the sex - yes
    Gender Guess: no guesses yet
    Have you told anyone yet? If so, who? If not, when? IRL, I've only told DH and my parents. I'll tell others when I feel safe that the pregnancy is viable (or if it becomes necessary because of work.)
    Symptom list: fatigue, some breast tenderness, crazy gag reflex
    Any names picked out? not yet
    What's your TTC Story? We started TTC #2 about a year and a half ago. Conceived in July, but had a very early miscarriage. Conceived again in August, that one seemed to be progressing better, but baby stopped growing at 6 weeks. The heart was still beating, though, until the u/s I had around 10 weeks. Had a D&C shortly after that, in late October. Conceived again sometime that winter, but another very early miscarriage. After that, I didn't conceive again until now, although we weren't trying very hard. I just started a new job this October, and decided not to ttc for a few months. I wanted to be at my new job for a year before having a baby (so I would qualify for FMLA). Plus, my temporary health insurance does not cover pregnancy. My better insurance with my new job will start on February 1st. My new work schedule is very different from DH's, so we only DTD once anywhere near the fertile window, but I guess that was enough this time! I'm hoping that this one was just meant to be (despite some inconveniences involved with the timing.) I'll be about 10 weeks by the time my new insurance starts, so not too far off from the time that people often have their first pre-natal appointments.

    Guess it's my turn to do this since I'm new My name is Janice

    ME - What I do - I am an ER tech, I'm in nursing school, going to be done in June

    DH - What he does - Josh works at a chiropractor clinic right now, is currently testing to become a firefighter.

    DS - My son is Cooper, he's 5. He is a very serious child and gets frustrated easy, like his mama, he also plays soccer and is a fantastic swimmer.

    Other "Pets" - I'll just put all my pets under this section...so here goes. I have 2 big quarter horses, mama and daughter, Noble and Moxie. A pony for the kiddos, her name is Sugar. 3 dogs, Duke, Koda and Lucy...and 3 chickens, Pearl, Ruby and Crystal.

    BFP Date: November 3rd 2013

    How did you tell SO? Totally boring...I texted him the picture of the test, lol.

    Due - July 16th 2014

    First Doctor Appointment: It was in December sometime...can't remember. Normal stuff, pelvic, blood work etc.

    Do you want to know the sex - Nope!!

    Does DH want to know the sex - Nope!!

    Have you told anyone yet? If so, who? If not, when? I'm 18 weeks right now...everyone knows.

    Symptom list: I have had very easy pregnancies, this one has been the easiest so far...a little nausea first trimester and that was it....I do have Pubis Symphysis syndrome already like I did with my second...so that sucks.

    Any names picked out? Baby will be Crosby, boy or girl. And the middle name after my step dad, who is the only dad I've ever had and has no biological kids of his own...so middle name will be Lee for a boy, Leigh for a girl.

    What's your TTC Story? No big story...we just had to time it well so I would have the baby after I was done with school, and before my job wants me to start as an RN....so we are lucky and get pregnant easy and I got pregnant right exactly when I wanted to!
