Roll Call and Due Date Roster August 2011 - Page 4

post #61 of 323

Thanks for the warm welcome.  To say I'm excited is an understatement.  joy.gif  It does feel a bit surreal still, though.  And yes, it has been a long journey.  We tried everything from clomid to surgery.

Cautiously saying hello.. My name is Erika and I'm 29, nice to "meet" everyone :) I got two light positives, one last night and one this morning. We lost a baby at 15 weeks on 9/1 so I am understandably nervous this time around. Due date is 8/20. I have a 10 yr old son, an 8 yr old daughter and a 3 yr old step son, and we live in the SE Philly suburbs.. SO excited to be here!

* Location: New York State (western)

* What number child is this for you: Right now it looks like 1st & 2nd praying.gif
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH and me and our fish.  And my sister Carlyle who lives in CA but supports me here! love.gif

It's really nice to meet the ladies I don't already know, and I'm sending a big hug and hello to my fellow TTC ladies, both announced and lurking!  blowkiss.gifgoodvibes.gif

YAAAAYYYY!  You finally jumped in :)  I can officially lurk here now too.... orngtongue.gif  I'm not pregnant right now, I'm just the sister, but I'm sure I'll be here often too--I hope that's okay with everyone!   I just had a baby girl two months ago, so it's all pretty fresh for me too.  AND I'M SO EXCITED TO FINALLY BE AN AUNTIE TO MY SISTER'S BABIES!!!  love.gif  It still makes me a little teary to see the pregnant icon and a pregnancy ticker in your signature... joy.gif

I plan on making most of our baby things too.  I just bought more sock yarn today and have started deconstructing a onesie to make a pattern.  We should totally start a thread about stuff.  I'd love to see what everyone is working on.
