July 2012 anyone? - Page 2

post #21 of 110

I have 5 little ones at home. I've done the pregnancy and birth thing 6 times (first baby died in infancy). I know a lot of people will complain about us having another but I'm honestly beyond caring when anyone else thinks! It's my life after all, I'm the one that gets to live it.

would love to have a group. EDD 7/9/12 +/- (just CM, not opk) I am dying to tell people but don't want anyone I know to know until 1/1/12. Baby #3 (pregnancy # 4 one early m/c before #2).

Hi, I am having some spotting and trying not to freak out!  I am going to go take a nap and hope that taking it easy will solve the problem.  I had a miscarriage in June so I am super sensitive about blood now..

Hope all is well. My successful pregancy after miscarriage had a tinge of spotting at 5-6 weeks that totally freaked me out. good luck.

I'm sorry. It can be terrifying. I've had one miscarriage and I also had one pregnancy where I bled for about 2 weeks but they never knew why, and the rest of the pregnancy was as healthy as can be - no problems. It's hard not to freak out though. Try to fill your mind with positive thoughts. I'm thinking of you and I hope the bleeding stops soon.

Is anyone able to start a DDC? I went to the Groups section where I think they are but I can't see how to start one, maybe it's because Im a new member?

 

Im so excited Im not alone in the early July due date! Congrats to you all!!! My 2nd Daughter's due date was July 9th and was born July 1st :)

I am barely 4 weeks and already I want to plan everything. My child care arrangement will change with the addition of #3 so I want to look into other nursery schools for DD and ask around about au pairs and stuff for DD & DS. We've already been planning how we will tell family in 7 more weeks. I feel like there is no reason not to be hopeful, but at the same time realize how early things are and that something could go wrong. I'm so conflicted.

The flow has picked up so I think either I had false postives or am miscarrying, although I am not having any cramping.  I called the midwives today and they said their isn't anything they can do so early.  So, I guess I am going to just step back and see what happens.  Happy pregnancies to everyone here!

this. ((hugs)) I had some moderate bleeding at 6w with my first child & it wasn't anything to worry about. I hope you will say the same!

I just POAS wednesday, which I thought was 10dpo. Turns out FF says I O'd a little earlier, so my EDD is 7/12/12. I had been supplementing progesterone for an obviously low level (via a naturopath; didn't get blood tests), but decided after TTC for 18 months, I'd stay OFF the supplements for a couple cycles, see what my body did naturally, and get blood tests then. WELL, what my body did naturally was (finally!) ovulate properly *and* had an LP long enough to allow for implantation. w00t! 

 

I've POAS about 5 times now--making up for all those BFN's in those 18 months, I guess. ;) I also had a blood test to check levels of hcg and progesterone to make sure they were where they should be. (so technically, I've had 6 BFP's, one of which was a blood test, lol) Doc's office says I don't need to supplement with progesterone--but since I have it on hand, and I'm paranoid because of my past symptoms of being really low--I'm tempted to just take a 1/4 dose or something JIC. 

 

DH and I would logically like to wait to tell people until 2nd trimester, BUT: 1) I'm bursting at the seams emotionally and want to shout it from the rooftops; and 2) Based on past experience, I will be literally bursting at my seams waaay sooner than Dec 29, and will be doing so in the company of many friends and family over the holidays. I'm thinking we just won't be able to wait that long anyway. (I just recently lost some weight and am really not comfortable just putting my "fat" clothes back on and pretending I'm just gaining it all back, yk?! Plus, baby bumps are cute, and I don't have much time with a bump before I turn into a beach ball; I'd like to enjoy that time.

I have a hard time waiting to tell too!  We're going to tell at Thanksgiving when we're in visiting family.  I just can't wait any longer than that!!  I'll be doing good if I can actually keep quiet the next 3 weeks...  With my first two, we told the day after we found out, lol

post #36 of 110

I have already told my parents and some friends. We will tell DH's parents soon and probably our siblings at Thanksgiving. It's so hard to keep it to ourselves! Plus since I told my parents they are more then happy to come help out with my older 2 so I can rest. 

post #37 of 110

I am having a hard time keeping it a secret too! I finally had to tell a couple of friends, but we're thinking about making the big announcement as a Christmas present to our family.

post #38 of 110

I'm joining you! I'm due around 7/4. I also can't keep a secret. We will probably make the big announcement through our Christmas cards.

post #39 of 110

Thanks everyone.  I may POAS again tomorrow.  My bleeding has been about normal period flow, but MUCH lighter than My normal flow, if that makes sense and no cramping.  i am still nervous of the unknown, but I have read so many women have had similar bleeding and the pregnancy was fine.  I hope that I will be able to stick around...I soooo want this baby!

post #40 of 110

Count me in!  EDD is the 4th with our first (sounds like there are a few of us joy.gif)  

 

I am having the hardest time keeping it a secret too.  We told our parents and siblings right away and are waiting until thanksgiving (8 weeks)  to tell anyone else.  We are going to keep it off of facebook and wait to tell work until 12 weeks which is right around Christmas, so that should be fun.
