Yay!!! July 2011 is here!! Roll Call!!! - Page 9

post #161 of 196

I'm "officially" joining as well....I've been lurking for the last....oh...5 weeks or so, LOL. I had a loss before my DD was born, and I have several IRL MDC mama friends and wasn't ready to make the news public yet.My symptoms also suddenly dropped dramatically at 7 weeks, but we saw the baby on U/S last week so I am now OK with people finding out. :)


I'm Kelly, 39 (will be 40 in less than 2 months-ack!!) and this will be our third. EDD is 7/12/11. We are planning to go with the free standing birthcenter where I had my DD.

I'm Lauren, I live in Virginia and my DD is July 15.  It is our first child.  Got an U/S and heard the heartbeat which was amazing!

I am 36 and so excited to be a mother!  It still feels quite surreal.

I'm Sam and live in CA.  I am due 7/28 with my second.  Still bfing 2 yr old, but as of last night, maybe no longer co-sleeping (his choice)??  Very excited and very exhausted!  We are planning a homebirth.

It's weird because I had tons of symptoms with the pregnancy that ended in a loss, and I have way less symptoms with this one. I've occasionally felt nauseous and had low back pain since a few days after conception, but that's it. 


Hopefully this one sticks fingersx.gif

I have a similar story, Gwen.  I had an early loss in September at 6 weeks, and was hit with the pg symptoms--esp. nausea--like a brick wall for the days before.  Got pg again right away (TTC for about 6 months).  This pregnancy, although still nauseous and fatigued, it's been more steady and mild.


I'm 36, my EDD is 7/7/11, and I'm still nursing my 27 month old dd at night, co-sleeping. I have a subchorionic bleed with this pregnancy, so I've been cautious.  At 12 weeks tomorrow, still only family and close friends know.  Hoping to avoid telling my boss until after my visit with the peri in early Jan. (considered high risk for AMA, SCH, and GD--I'm an information gatherer, and then I decide what, if anything, I'll do from there).  I'm thrilled, though, about this pregnancy, and can't wait for dd to have a little sibling (her older sibling is a 5 year old lug of a yellow lab).

I'm Maria and I live in VA. My EDD is 7/25 for now (may be earlier).

DH and I have been married for 8 years and this is baby #5. We are planning a homebirth again (I have had one birth center birth and three homebirths.

post #166 of 196

Hi Mamas - guess I should join in. . . I'm due around 7/29/11 but my last came at 36wks 3 days so I won't be surprised if this one shows up early too (hopefully not that early though). We had a homebirth with our first and are planning toward another one. Our homebirth last time became iffy because of some complications (single umbilical artery detected at the 20wk ultrasound and a single kidney detected in subsequent ultrasounds). We ended up having an amnio at 30 wks (very reluctantly) to put the midwife at ease about potential genetic abnormalities, which came back normal and we were able to birth at home as planned. I am hoping that this pregnancy is much smoother.  Happy to meet you all here and look forward to growing big with you all!

Wow, thought I I posted here already! I'm Lisa and I'm expecting baby #2 on July 14th :) My first birth involved 4 days of trying to induce labor  and about 6ish hours of  actual labor. This time I'm hoping for a water birth at a birth center, with a midwife, and If I need to be induced next time I'm grabbing DH and inducing the same way we got pregnant ;)


I just told the family today so it seems "real" now (don't know why NOW it feels real, cause I've been kicked with the nausea). So I'm happy and excited to be here!
