I made an apointment with my OB for tuesday morning so I guess we will see what she has to say about this whole funness!

post #6 of 178

*Name (whatever you would like to be called or like us to know you by):  Naomi
*EDD: 
Around June 9
*Age/ age when the baby will be born:  28
*Location:  Oahu, Hawaii
*How long it took you to get your BFP: 3 years, 2 months.
*What number child is this for you:  2nd
*Family (partner, other children, pets):  I've been married to my husband for 6 years this December, and we have a daughter, CJ who is 4, and one of my sisters (16) lives with us.  We also have a dog.
*Birth plans/preferences:  We're aiming for an HBAC. 
*Thoughts / anything else you you would like to share:  I'm in nursing school, so this is going to be a fun and interesting ride.  I also have "something" wrong with me, which the rheumatologist is calling an "undifferentiated" connective tissue disease.  I'm hoping whatever it is gets BETTER during pregnancy and not worse, like rheumatoid arthritis instead of lupus.  We'll see.  Luckily, God knows better than me, and we'll have our new little bundle of joy at the beginning of Summer break and I'll be able to start on a good freezer stash before I have to go back to school.  I'm especially happy because since CJ will be starting Junior Kindergarten next fall, we'll still only have to pay for one munchkin in care while I go to school.  God certainly has good timing!

Hi, Amanda,

 

I am in DC as well.  Keep me posted on your natural childbirth findings.

Hopefully we can be of support to each other for our first!

 

In Swellness,

post #14 of 178

Hi All! Tested this morning and got a faint line. Please refrain from adding me to the roster until I confirm by blood test -- I will update here when I do.

 

*Name (whatever you would like to be called or like us to know you by): Alicewyf
*EDD: 06/15/12
*Age/ age when the baby will be born: 27/28
*Location: South Texas
*How long it took you to get your BFP: This was a very unexpected, unplanned surprise!
*What number child is this for you: 2
*Family (partner, other children, pets): Husband Joe, daughter Lillian (age 2), and dog Kirby.
*Birth plans/preferences: Probably a hospital birth this time around due to insurance issues. My daughter was born 100% naturally attended by midwives in a freestanding birth center, but I doubt we'll be able to afford that again.
*Thoughts / anything else you you would like to share: I'm still in denial! I have some progesterone issues and a bicornuate uterus, so I have a bit more likelihood of miscarrying than most people. I'm a little nervous and scared to get too attached too quickly.

 

ETA: I just got a positive digital! Wow. Surprise pregnancies really are that...surprises!

post #17 of 178

*Name (whatever you would like to be called or like us to know you by):  Katie
*EDD:  June 7th (although I have long cycles so maybe closer to the 14th)
*Age/ age when the baby will be born:  28/29
*Location: Bay Area, CA
*How long it took you to get your BFP:  1 year of trying naturally, 1 year of infertility treatment, and 6 months of being in nursing school not trying (but not using birth control after being told we had less than a 1% chance of conceiving due to our issues)
*What number child is this for you: 1
*Family (partner, other children, pets):
Husband
*Birth plans/preferences: Home birth (I was apprenticing with a homebirth midwife before starting nursing school)
*Thoughts / anything else you you would like to share:
  Hoping to stay here for 9 months or so, but after sooo many years of IF treatment it's kind of a tentative excitement.  I've been having mild cramping for the last few weeks, but only spotted once a few weeks ago (which would have lined up with implantation anyway).  I'm not having any major symptoms.  My breasts were killing me the last week, but today don't seem quite as killer (which of course makes me really nervous).  I'm exhausted, but I'm in nursing school so that is kind of par for the course.
