post #21 of 182

 

* EDD: according to the internet calculators, that would be Nov 3
* Name: Amy
* Age at conception / Age at delivery:  27 and 28
* Location: Vancouver, BC
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: i don't know what this is! so many acronyms
* What number child is this for you: this will be our first
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): I've got my husband and my dog here for me
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): i'm kind of hoping for a girl, but I couldn't say I have any guesses yet
* Names you like (& are willing to share): we were thinking something scandinavian sounding. 
* Birth plans/preferences: I'm calling the midwifery group down the street this week to get set up, but I might be moving to a different province before the birth so who knows what will end up happening
* Blog, website or the like:
* Anything else you'd like to share: I'm really happy of course, but also terrified. I had a miscarriage when I was 21 and then another one this Christmas while we were on our honeymoon in Mexico. Not a great vacation. So while I'm excited, I'm definitely not feeling very relaxed about this.

I'm so excited to see more mamas every day! I had the forum moderator put a link up at the top of the main forum page to this thread (the new way to do stickies if you want to sticky a thread).

 

I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better :)

 

post #23 of 182

I'll play along, although I am still pretty early along. I've never tested before AF was due, so this is uncharted territory for me.

 

* EDD: Nov. 13
* Name: sommer
* Age at conception / Age at delivery:  32/33
* Location: KY
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: I don't think we were really trying, but I was charting so I knew when I o'ed - it just happened to be about 5 days earlier than I expected to
* What number child is this for you: 3
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): hubby, DS 5, DD 3, and 2 furry dogs
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): I've not a clue, and don't really hope one way or the other (yet)
* Names you like (& are willing to share): Names are tough for us, our DD wasn't named until she was 3 weeks old
* Birth plans/preferences: homebirth

post #24 of 182

* EDD: Nov 3rd (if you go by ovulation), but Oct 31st according to LMP
* Name: Kelly
* Age at conception / Age at delivery:  31
* Location: Eastern NC
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: about 6 months of trying

* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): dh, dd, and d*** dog :-)
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): hoping for a boy to carry on the name and balance the family out
* Names you like (& are willing to share):  Roslyn, Emily Anne, or William Thad, or Riley Luke
* Birth plans/preferences: here's the trick: if i stay in my home town where i delivered dd (and loved the ob ward), i have to have another csection, if i want to try for a vbac, i have to go to the hospital 45 minutes away where the rooms are small and they push you out quickly. so i don't know what to do yet

* Anything else you'd like to share: i haven't really told many people, although my dd is telling everyone...i am always so nervous about whether everything will be ok, but that's all of us probably

post #28 of 182
* EDD: Mid-November. According to my dates, looks like November 12 or 13.
* Name: Mal
* Age at conception / Age at delivery: 25
* Location: US
* How long it took to you to get your BFP: Hard telling. My cycles are crazy long. I was supposed to start clomid this month. On day 47 of my cycle with all BFNs I called the doc, who prescribed Provera. I started that last Monday. I got a BFN that day and the next 2 days. Something told me to test again today and it was a glaring positive. DARK line showed as soon as I took the test. I had a possible positive OPK a little over 3 weeks ago. This was our 6th month trying.
* What number child is this for you: This will be #2.
* Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): My husband, Joe and daughter, Owyn.
* Baby's gender (hopes or guesses): I just found out today, so no real hunches yet. But we're really hoping for a boy.
* Names you like (& are willing to share): The only boy name we've ever sort of agreed on is Henry. DH loves Jack. I love Arlo, Knox, Asa, Callum and Efrem.
* Birth plans/preferences: I delivered DD at a hospital with a midwife. But I've since been witness to a homebirth. DH isn't comfortable with a homebirth, but the midwife that was there delivers at a birth center a little over an hour away. I'm planning to call there to see if they take my insurance.
* Blog, website or the like: Nope, just on facebook.
* Anything else you'd like to share: Not much so far. I don't have any symptoms that I've noticed so far. I'm a little worried because of the Provera, but the doc says there shouldn't be anything to worry about. I'm having my hcg levels checked twice this week to make sure things are going alright.

post #32 of 182

*EDD - Well, according to the first day of my lmp, Nov.8th, according to the day I O'd, Nov. 10th.  But, I'm going with November 16th.  (More on that later.) 

*Name - Xerxella

*Age - 35 now / 36 at delivery

*Location - Chicagoland, right next to Gondwanaland

*How long it took for the BFP - Third month trying

*What number child is this - Number 3!  :) 

*Family - Wonderful DH, 4 yo son and 2 yo daughter (still nursing)

*Baby's Gender - Don't care, but so far my gut says boy

*Names - We'll decide when the baby's born

*Birth Plan - Well, my 1st was a completely unnecesarian.  My 2nd at least I got a good trial of labor in a good hospital with midwives known for their VBAC rate, but still I ended up with a C.  Now, I'll probably go to Uof I Chicago, which is the only hospital willing to attempt a VBA2C.  :(  That's why I'm saying 11/16 as my due date.  Last time they were really pushing for a C when I hit 40 weeks and wow was that a battle that no one needs at the end of their pregnancy.  I actually went into labor on my own and was 41+1, so now I'll have my 8 days built in.  :)  How sad that you have to plan ahead to fool the medical community so they'll do what's right. 

*Anything else - I would not so secretly love twins since this may be our last pregnancy and I always wanted 4 children and I've always wanted them relatively close together.

*EDD: Early Nov

*Name: Carrie

*Age: 26/26

*Location: Middle GA

*How long for BFP: we weren't TTC... I'm still bfeeding my 20 mo and have no gotten my periods back. So this was definitely a GOOD surprise! We had been thinking about trying, but I didn't want to wean DS just to have another kid, so now everyone wins! But now I don't have a LMP date so I won't know how far along I am until my u/s, which isn't until March 22nd. Ahh the suspense!!! lol

*Number Child: 2

*Family: Hubby - Chad, DS - Will @ 20 mo

*Baby's Gender: not sure why, but I think it's a boy!

*Names: Zachary Caleb????

*Birth Plans: my first was a non-medicated birth in a birthing center. We've moved since then and there are no birthing centers in po-dunk middle GA, so I'm really gonna have to do some research on good OBs/midwives/hospitals in the area. I don't think I'm confident enough to do a homebirth yet... maybe next time!
