January 2012 Babies!!

post #1 of 102
Thread Starter 

joy.gifI'll be the first to post! Our 5th baby is due on January 6th!! This was our first cycle after a previous 9 week miscarriage in March. To be honest, we weren't even trying this month so this is just another lesson of "we are not really in control" (even though we think we are!). We're so happy! I knew 4-5 days after bd'ing that something was up (even though I thought I had no reason to think so) and knew for sure by 8 days after even before I had a BFP to prove it. I have tons of symptoms. I really feel pregnant this time! I've never been so psyched to be exhausted, moody and nauseous. We told the kids yesterday and they are so excited too! 

 


Who else!?

OMG your babe is beautiful! I was pregnant with my 4th when my 3rd was 8 months---said two girls are now playing "house" together as I type this. It was worth it!

me :)

 

I'm due with #4 on 1/2/12. joy.gif

 

I tested positive at 7dpo so I have known for 2 weeks already.  Crazy.  Not feeling much symptom-wise, just metal mouth and going to bed by 10pm every night, lol.

Hi everyone! I am due with #2 on Jan. 4 or 6 depending on how you calculate dates.  I was a bit surprised because it was the first month of actively trying, but thrilled because I will be 39 soon and didn't want to wait too much longer. My DD will be 3 soon and I also didn't want any more space between them.  I am hoping for an hbac and starting to interview midwives. Not really feeling any symptoms, which worries me a little, but it's still so early.

Hey :) Been hanging out on the Dec board. I am Due Jan 2nd with number 6 for me, number 7 for our family.  I got a lovely positive 9 days after which is early for me. Makes me wonder lol. the nausea is getting to me lately and the always tired feeling but other wise its not to bad :)

when you say "conception" do you mean ovulation (were you charting) or just that you know the date of the sex you conceived with?  If ovulation, I would go with that date.  If it is the date of the sex, it still could be a few days after, because sperm can live for several days waiting for the egg.

 

if you don't know your exact ovulation date, most providers will either go by your LMP (last menstrual period) or an early ultrasound to date the pregnancy (if you consent to that).

Hey, everyone!  I'm due Jan 9th.  This will be my first! joy.gif

post #10 of 102

Hi mamas!  I'm due 1/1/12 by conception date.  I'm almost positive I ovulated before we DTD, but my cycles have been a bit wonky lately (don't have to worry about that anymore!).  By LMP I'm due 1/2/10.  No symptoms yet, other than being tired.  I'm just waiting for the morning sickness to hit...

 

This will be #2 for us.  DS is 19 months old, and was born completely naturally, in the hospital, with a midwife.  Aside from some crazy back labor, I had a great experience.  If there's no back labor, this time will be a breeze! 

 

Glad to meet you all!  wave.gif

post #11 of 102

Hi all!  I came looking for this DDC last week, when I got my BFP, and it wasn't listed yet.  So I'm glad to find it now!

 

I'm due Jan 3rd.  I have one DS who is almost 18 months and I had a miscarriage in March this year at 8 weeks. So this baby will hopefully be our second that we get to keep.  We're still worried and wary of sharing the news since we shared early last time and then had the m/c.  I had a beta hcg done 3 days ago that was 1385.  The plan is to repeat it weekly til my sono around 7-8 weeks, just for peace of mind to know all is ok til then.

 

We conceived before the first period after the m/c, so we have to go by ovulation.  I wasn't charting religiously, but I'm pretty sure this due date is the only option given the chart.  (Oddly enough, bd'ing was one day after ovulation, so that's pretty wild that the egg survived til then!  lol.)

 

We had a homebirth last time and plan the same this time around.  I don't plan, however, to repeat the 42 hour labor that preceded the birth!  lol.  I'm hoping this one will be much more normal length.

 

Here's to a happy and healthy 8 more months for all of us!

Wow, similar situation! I miscarried in the beginning of March at exactly 9 weeks. We also conceived on the first ovulation after the miscarriage (before my first period) and we also bd'ed after ovulation.....pretty neat! Guess these little ones know how to make things happen up there!

HI  ladies, I cannot believe I'm here too! Got the "PREGNANT" on the clear blue digital last night. I've been taking dollar store tests for like ten days with nothing, then for whatever reason, my dh dug out Friday nights test from the garbage on Saturday morning and told me he saw a line. I thought it was an evap line, went and bought the clear blue, and BFP!

Not sure on my exact due date... with dd (20months) I was charting and knew exactly when I o'd... Im still nursing her like crazy, and my cycles were kinda all over the place. We only just decided to ttc, so it still doesn't feel real. My lmp was March 25, which gives me a due date of dec 29. I'm sure I didnt o until closer to April 20, which is more like Jan 7th. I hate that I don't know the details. LOL. somehow I feel less in control.. weird.

 

Anyways, I called my dr, have an apt on June 8th, I guess we'll get a better idea of size / timing then :)

 Hello everybody. I am happy to see this DDC is here at last! I've been impatiently waiting.

 

This is my third pregnancy but I have not been pregnant for a loooong time. My kids are 21 and 17 and I am 45. I got pregnant without any assistant, in fact it was quite a shock. My partner has never had kids, and he is out of this world happy about this. I worry about m/c due to my age (though I have never had one). My two older kids were born with Midwives. the 2nd at home.

 

Right now I'm focused on eating really well, taking prenatals and not stressing.

 

Looking forward to getting to know all of you!

Sushi & sake get me every time. Same thing we had when I got pregnant with ds1. Shortly thereafter I dreamed I had milk again and had another boy... Then took about 600 pregnancy tests because I couldn't believe I got pregnant so fast.
Due on the first!

Ds was born via c section after a long back labor and three unsuccessful hours of pushing.

Hey guys, I am here too!!  I just got a BFP yesterday and #4 is due January 11th-ish :)  This was definitely not planned, our oldest just turned 3 a couple weeks ago, our middle will be 2 mid-June and our youngest is 6.5 months... we may be slightly insane!!  Our oldest with 4 months shy of 4 when this baby is born :)  I am still a bit in shock (DH was home for 2 weeks for RnR from deployment and I really didn't think the dates lined up) but am cautiously excited too!!

I am not here yet (fingers crossed), but I would be due the same day as you! I took a test on Sat morn, neg. I am waiting until tomorrow morning (when I my period is due) to test again. Agghhh, it is so tough to wait, especially when I tease myself by lurking!

 

Congrats Mamas! Hope to be in this board soon!

If it makes you feel more hopeful, I had a BFN at 9 dpo (even though I already had symptoms) and at 11 dpo had a BFP on a digital even! Good Luck tomorrow! 

post #19 of 102

I'm due January 6th with our first after a year of trying.  I feel totally spaced out and exhausted and it doesn't really seem real yet.

post #20 of 102

 

Yay!  I just got a positive this morning!

 

We've been trying for about three years now, DS will be 5 next week! I had a very early miscarriage about a year and a half ago (before I could get a positive test result). Here's the kicker - we had finally gotten around to setting up an appointment at a fertility clinic that my acupuncturist had recommended, and I get to cancel it!

 

I felt mittelschmertz this time (did with DS, too) and that puts me at Jan 8. DS was almost 3 weeks early, though, so it could be December. Wow, this is so amazing, I thought it would never happen!

 

I’ve been pretty sure I was pregnant for a week or so, but I waited to take the test because I had false negatives last time from testing too early.
