Well I guess I'm just going to go for it and jump into this DDC...I've been lurking for about a month now, afraid to join a DDC for fear of jinxing it...but dangit, I wanna join! lol
I'm 29y.o. and according to my LMP my due date is 2/3/2011 (although I have short cycles, so by ovulation I'm probably due more around the end of January)...DH and I are very much excited about this pregnancy!
We've only told a few people about it though because our first pregnancy was a missed miscarriage (found out at the 12 wk u/s that there was no heartbeat) and we had already told people about the pregnancy, so we had to deal with random people in our small town who had heard about the pregnancy but not the miscarriage congratulating us...that was hard and we'd like to avoid that if possible! With our 2nd pregnancy (which resulted in our DS
) we waited until after the 12 wk u/s to tell people...not sure if we'll make it that long this time around because it seems a lot more difficult to hide, as I seem to be more bloated so I kinda *look* pregnant and sometimes the queasiness is hard to hide...our parents are prob gonna figure it out soon, and once they know, it'll prob be all over town!
We have our first appointment with a midwife on July 2nd...I'll be 9 wks along by then (really more like 9 1/2 according to ovulation date), so I'm crossing my fingers we'll be able to hear a heartbeat with the doppler, although I realize it's not likely!
So excited to get to know you mamas over the next 7 months and sending sticky vibes to you all!
