2happymamas and wembles...we were all in the Dec 08 DDC together! How fun to do it again!
post #69 of 260
Hi all!
Well I'm officially joining the April DDC! Just got a BFP @13 DPO on Friday! Line keeps getting darker so I think I'll join!

*Name: Erica
*Age: 24 in Oct
*Location: Indianapolis, IN
*How long it took to get my BFP: We started trying Dec. 24 2009 so exactly 7 months from first try to conception day! Lol.
*What # child is this? 5th pregnancy, 3rd baby. Have had early m/c both times before sticky beans so really really nervous about this one! Hoping to break that trend!!
*Family: DH John, DD Melanie (2.5), DS Deklan (15 months)
*Baby's gender: Dont care either way, we'll prob have one more after this so whatever is fine. My first mental image when I saw the BFP was boy but maybe that's just because my last baby was a boy? No idea. Don't think it means anything.
*Names: nothing yet but he/she will be named after my I'll grandmother whom I'm very close with.
*Birth Plans: HwBA2C (home water birth after 2 cesareans for those who are acronym challenged like myself.. Lol)
*Other thoughts: feeling a little queesy already at only 4w2d which isn't a good sign since I have HORRIBLe M/S with all pregnancies... But so happy about this pregnancy. dH and I are so unbelievably happy about this... It's weird. Haha. You would think we'd be more nervous about having 3 under 3. Haha. I love them SO MUCH tho!!

Oh oops forgot to add me EDD: April 16, 2011

So happy to join you all!!!

Congrats to you all - I look forward to getting to know you!!

post #76 of 260
* EDD: Around 04/15/2011 Tax Day
* Name: Laura
* Age: 26, 27 when babe is born
* Location: Northern CA
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: I discussed some mysterious symptoms with DH last night (nothing that would make you think pregnancy), said "I'm going to take a pregnancy test tomorrow" and bam. There we are.
* What number child is this for you: 4th pregnancy, 3rd child (lost one earlier this year)
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH of 6+ years, DD1 4, DD2 14 months
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): No hopes, I'll take either one quite happily...I'm guessing girl right now, only because it's all I have and I have no idea when I got pregnant and somehow that usually seems to mean girl.
* Names you like (& are willing to share): No idea!
* Birth plans/preferences: Hoping to have another homebirth-in-the-hospital experience just like I did with DD2. If we're in the same area, that is...if not, I may consider homebirth.
* Anything else you'd like to share: A little overwhelmed by the news right now. As usual, my body and intuition seemed to know I was pregnant before I was willing to mentally accept it (I kept thinking over the last week or so "I'm pregnant" even though we weren't trying at all...but I was pushing that thought to the back of my mind)...I've been thinking a lot about babies lately. I'm looking forward to another baby with all my heart, but very apprehensive about the change from 2 to 3...and the uncertainty of the world right now...it will be easier to be more uninhibited about getting excited once I've passed 12 weeks. I'm glad to see this DDC though...it looks delightful...like my May '09 DDC (I loved those ladies).
