Yes I think it's probably the only one! I am very excited : )
post #129 of 260
Alright, I'm going to join. I've been waiting because of my history. It's hard to get too excited before like the midway point of a pregnancy. I've had 3 losses and this is my 6th pregnancy. But I just got a call that all my bloodwork came back great, progesterone and hcg are right where they should be. I'm only at 4 weeks 4 days. So I'm going to get a little excited.

* EDD: April 24th, so probably early May
* Age: 29, 30 in Oct.
* Location: Colorado
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: Um..we really weren't trying, so first try I guess. We always get pregnant very easily, it's the staying part that's hard.
* What number child is this for you: 3rd
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): Dh, 35, Two girls, H, almost 6, and A, almost 3. One dog, two cats.
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): ?? Dh would be thrilled with a boy, I would be thrilled with another girl. But we really don't care either way.
* Names you like (& are willing to share): Waaay too early for that yet.
* Birth plans/preferences: Planning 3rd homebirth with my midwife

It's a great place. My mom loved it, although that was in the early 80s. I think someone I went to high school with may be a midwife there...you'll be in good hands!

It'll do! Actually, I'm finishing up a grad degree at OSU myself. IF I can still finish it and have a baby the same year...

* EDD: 4/8/11
* Age: 33
* Location: NJ
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: First Try!
* What number child is this for you: #2
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): My 3yo son and hubby.
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): I have this strong feeling it's a girl. If it's a boy, I'm pretty set in clothes for a while however!
* Names you like (& are willing to share): No clue at this point.
* Birth plans/preferences: Unmedicated - I'm really hoping to try natural this time. I didn't know better with DS and got an epidural so this time, I want to really try going with my body!

I'm kind of nervous about number 2 for DS is a handful! I usually have to chase after him and what not when we are out, so I'm glad I'm a babywearer. But still very nervous about how things will be!!

April, 2011 - babies

* EDD: April 20
* Name: Sonya
* Age: 38
* Location: Oklahoma
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: We were not trying; this was a surprise.
* What number child is this for you:2 (although one miscarriage in Feb, 2009).
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH - 41 yrs; DD - 9 months, 3 parrots (blue and gold macaw, umbrella cockatoo, and african grey)
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): no preference as long as the baby is healthy.
* Names you like (& are willing to share): None yet - just found out last night!!!
* Birth plans/preferences: See below
* Anything else you'd like to share: Goodness. Completely overwhelmed. Had a baby born last Nov (Nov 1) at 2 lbs, 9 oz via c-section emergently due to my severe pre-eclampsia. Was not trying at all, and have barely had intercourse due to hubby finishing his PhD. Trying not to panic as we haven't even waited a year since having our daughter. Please send positive thoughts our way for a healthy and trouble-free pregnancy! Worried, too, as we now live in a rural area, not in a city like when DD was born.

Congrats, everyone! Is anyone taking PNV's/supplements, and if so, what ones? What else are you doing?

Hello all!

* EDD: April 28
* Name: Allison
* Age: 36
* Location: Ohio USA
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: this is a surprise babe
* What number child is this for you: 3
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH, DS1--6yo, DS2-3.5yo
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): will be happy either way
* Birth plans/preferences: would love another homebirth but finances make that nigh on impossible this time; I have a lovely CNM and expect a beautiful hypnobirthing hospital birth!
* Anything else you'd like to share: just got my BFP this morning, so am still in a daze about it. The test didn't tell me anything my body hadn't already told me, but seeing it pop right up there was.... wow. We were on the verge of saying we were done having kids, but I guess God had other plans for us LOL Overall I'm thrilled to be here

April 2011

* EDD: April 29th, late April
* Name: Lisa
* Age: 30
* Location: Atlanta
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: 3 months (cutting back on nursing #1 seemed to be the thing that made the difference)
* What number child is this for you: #2
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): Husband is really supportive - a great labor "coach." My first son is 2 and a half.
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): It would be nice to have another boy because they might tend to play together more and could share toys and clothes more easily... but I must admit I would also love to have a girl. I think we will only have two.
* Names you like (& are willing to share): I named my first Aden, thinking it sounded unique! After realizing that everyone else had the same idea, I'm hoping to come up with something a little more unique this time around.
* Birth plans/preferences: home birth. My first was in Texas, and it was such a beautiful and peaceful experience. I am a total wimp with anything physical or painful, so I never expected it to be an enjoyable experience. However, I didn't believe I was even in "real" labor until I was 6 cm and then three hours later my midwife asked to check me again and I told her I doubted I had progressed because it had been so manageable. She checked and I was 10cm! I only hope that my second birth is as lovely as my first.
* Anything else you'd like to share: We're thinking a little about a Lotus Birth. I'm also trying to decide whether to find out the gender ahead of time, or wait until the birth.
