Is anyone else waiting for the August 2011 DDC? - Page 2

post #21 of 58

Congrats to all of you!!  I've been waiting for the Aug ddc too, though I may be out before it even starts :( 

 

I took a test on Sat (4 days late for af) and got a light bfp, then another on Sun that was bfn..  I started spotting yesterday evening (brown) and am now bleeding red lightly, but I just got another light bfp.  I have hopes, but not too many.  Anyway, maybe I'll end up seeing y'all over there! fingersx.gif

That's me, too!  +/- 1 day.  :)  And funny, I see your DS is 8/2!  My DD1 is 8/6!


Very neat!

Hi Ladies!  I am waiting for Aug 2011, too!  EDD 8/2/2011, after trying for about a year and a half.  We ended up pregnant with IVF.

 

Here is my favorite Due Date calculator.  You can use your LMP (last menstrual period) or your Ovulation date (if you know it).

Mamalimey - It's weird isn't it?  That they count the two weeks leading up to ovulation as part of your pregnancy?  And that's assuming everyone has a perfect 28 day cycle.

I'm joining the August 2011 club too!!  I'm due around August 7th, 2011!!  I can't wait for the new board to show up!

Hi wave.gif!   I'm mostly a lurker but I can't wait for it either.  Just got my BFP on Thanksgiving Day!  AF was 4 days late so I tested.  Due date calculator says I am due August 1st.  DS1 was a week late and DS2 was a week early so I could go either way.  Will probably lurk in July and post in August.  I look forward to getting to know you all in the coming months.  I'm over the moon!  DH was really hesitant about a third, but has come around.  Yippee!!

Good luck vegemamato! I've got fingers crossed for you!

 

 

I belong here, or in the July DDC, I'm not sure. I got a BFP this morning, but suspected for about a week. Due date is officially 8/3, but my daughter was 2 weeks early, so I am not putting any bets on due dates.  I'm just excited to be pregnant! It's great to be here with you!

Hi!! Just got my BFPs last night and today. I should be due 8/8 - which also happens to be my Grandmother's and my Grandfather's birthday. :-) I'm very nervous because I m/c back in April. I'm trying to stay positive and keep those negative thoughts and feelings away.

post #28 of 58

I'm waiting too!!!

 

I'm due August 9th. Early days, but I want to celebrate!!

Welcome, MrsMike!  I think remember you from the ONE a long, long time ago.  I am so sorry to hear that you had a m/c.  ((hug))

My EDD is 7/26 or 7/30 depending on how you calculate it. My first son was a week over due and my second was 10 days over so, I will most likely be in August and will probably post in both forums. Congrats to everyone!!!

Since August 2011 isn't up yet, I'll just share more here if that's ok?

 

I ended up going to our fertility specialist appointment yesterday. Long story short, we've been trying since January 2010, got pregnant in July, had a very sad miscarriage in late August, got a BFP in September that faded away, and a BFP in October that my OB said was likely a false positive since the bloodwork came back BFN. He refered me to the specialist who luckily only had one month of wait list.

 

My OB did warn me that I was likely to get a BFP in advance of our appointment with her because "that's just what happens". !!!

 

And it did! Friday evening before our Tuesday appointment I got the BFP.

 

Regardless, we went to ensure that we are "on her books". They ran bloodwork and I expect the results back today, and I also took a digi with conception test at home and I got "Pregnant 2-3 weeks"! When I get my bloodwork back, I'll have to go in every 48 hours to ensure everything is increasing as expected.

 

I am also now on progesterone suppositories, as the doctor thinks they can't hurt to take. Since we don't know what exactly caused my M/C I'm taking them.

 

All in all, a busy few days. I'm excited! Wish me luck for my beta results!

I'm waiting for the August DDC as well.  I tested on Sunday (before I was going to have a little holiday cheer) to make sure I was not pregnant.  The test was white as the driven snow, so I indulged.  The next morning, I grabbed the test and lo and behold there were 2 lines!  I've used tons of dollar tree tests over the past eight years and have never had an apparently negative test turn positive.  Of course, everything says not to look at it after 10 minutes so I was utterly confused- wanting it to be positive, thinking it's probably an evap line, compounded by my never having had an evap line EVER or a test change after 10 minutes.  Of course, I discovered the two lines after I had already peed so I did another test about an hour later- again as white as the driven snow, though a few hours later two lines were there.  I'm freaking out- wanting to be pregnant, but not wanting to get my hopes up and then be disappointed because it was only evap lines.  At this point DH is really irritated with me because I can't give him a conclusive answer (but honey I don't know!!!!).  So on Tuesday using fmu, I take another test.  After 3 minutes, negativo, but right at 9 minutes and 30 seconds a faint 2nd line appears.  A line is a line and it appeared within 10 minutes so I'm considering that to be the result.  DH is going crazy over all this uncertainty and asked me to wait a day or two before I test again, not wanting to repeat the drama for  a 3rd morning in a row.  So I skipped this morning and will test again in the am.  The crazy thing is I think I was only 7 or 8 dpo (based on when we've dtd) when I did the first test on Sunday (we dtd on 11/20 and then not again until 11/24 which would be WAY too early).   In my confused panic, I think babycenter said my dd would be either 8/13 or 8/14- so I guess I'm 4 weeks and 4 days?  Either way, I'm very newly pregnant and praying that it sticks!

I'm jonesing for our DDC to be up and running!  We thought we'd wait a little while to tell people IRL, and I'm dying to talk about it!  I spent most of yesterday on-line researching midwives, birth programs, and cute "big sister" T-shirts.  I ordered one that says Only Child and has that crossed out, and underneath it says Big Sister.  I think I'll have DD wear that when we Skype with my parents and see if they notice it. 

 

SML27 - it sounds like this year has been an emotional roller coaster for you.  Let us know when you get your beta results. 

post #35 of 58

Ack!  I am so anxious to start posting with you all (and to stop crashing the July thread...sorry ladies!).

post #36 of 58

Can't wait for us to have our own home!

 

I am in the "stay positive" phase. Got my hcg back today: 3,000 at 4w6days so that seems pretty good. Just always hard to relax until later!

post #37 of 58

I have so much I want to talk about, can't wait till we get our board!

 

Bookwormommy- I love that shirt, I might just steal your idea! We've said for almost 6 years now that DD would be an only child and our family is going to be really surprised to see we changed our minds and are having another. That shirt fits our situation perfectly.

post #38 of 58

Danielle283 - My DD is 4, and I know at my age (almost 43) everyone thinks she's going to be an only, so I thought it was really funny.  I ordered it from cafepress.com - they have a couple different designs with that saying. 

 

xmasbaby7 - those  numbers look good.  I know what you mean about relaxing.  Even just 2nd trimester seems so far away!

 

Anyone else having nausea already?  I have a whiff of it this afternoon, and I'm trying not to freak out.  I had really bad morning sickness w/ DD, and am hoping to not repeat the experience.  I ordered the Hypnobabies CD about morning sickness - anyone try this? 

post #39 of 58

here I am literally refreshing the due date club page every hour looking for August 2011 to pop up, and you girls have been hanging here patiently.  I CANNOT WAIT till our board is up.  Eeeks so excited.  So happy to meet you all and go on this journey together. 

 

I knew I was pregnant a week before I got my BFP.....bloodflow centered around my uterus, my BFF and I both had dreams, weird stretchy pulley stuff down there, watery mouth and a bit of a metallic taste a week DPO, weird boob tingles, and just in my heart I knew.  I started testing so so early and kept getting BFN, I started to doubt my instincts.  Then I got a BFN that turned into a maybe BFP/EVAP on a $ store when I went trash diving for it hours later.  FRER on AF due was BFN, then next day, the faintest BFP...and now, two darker lines and a digi PREGNANT.  I have been dreaming like crazy already and have instituted 4th meal. 

 

Oh and the other reason I know I am pregnant........DS(2) is OBSESSED with my belly, obsessed.  Wants to touch it all the time and lay his head on it.  With him, my chocolate lab "told" me with a never heard before growl/bark I was pregnant 2 days before I tested.  Now DS can sense his sibling.  So crazy. 

post #40 of 58

Congrats you all!  It's really fun being in the first week of a DDC because you go through everything first.  I know the ladies at the end are like, when will that happen to me, when is it my turn! orngtongue.gif
