post #121 of 190

Hello everyone!

 

EDD:  June 1 (by LMP)


Your Age: 36, DH is 32


Your General Location:  NW FL


This babe will be child #?:  1st!


How long have you been TTC:  Married for four years, were not TTC or TTA, but if a kid showed up we'd have been pleased.  We thought it was kind of weird that I was not getting pregnant, so we started charting and actively trying about a year and a half ago.  I had a HSG at the beginning of June, and discovered I had proximal blockage in both tubes.  I had surgery to clear my tubes at the end of August and got pregnant two weeks later.  My RE's office freaked out, because due to my age and the bazillion tests they ran on me there was "no way" that I was going to be able to get pregnant without injectibles.  I was supposed to call when my period arrived, to start my first medicated cycle, but I got a BFP instead.  When they finally released me to my OB at 8 weeks, the nurses still expressed shock I had a "spontaneous" viable pregnancy.  I'm really just not that old, and my numbers were not that bad, so I can't figure out why they find this so amazing.  We're thrilled of course, because free is awesome (compared to the thousand bucks a cycle they were estimating for us with fertility drugs).


Tell us a bit about your family (partner, other children, and/or pets):  Three dogs that are senior citizens.  They know I'm pregnant.  Two are obsessed with lying next to me with their head on my stomach.  I'm a housewife (soon to be stay-at-home-mom, hurray!)  My 24/7 nausea is kicking my butt right now - in my 6th full week of it.  My hubs is being totally awesome and supportive, taking care of anything I ask him to, even though I'm home all day and he works full time and is also a grad student.  I'm blessed and I adore him completely.  He's going to make a terrific dad.


Anything else you'd like to share:  Hubs and I have been working towards living a more green life for about the last three years.  We started with very basic goals (eliminating toxic household cleaners) and then started to broaden our scope to include reducing our carbon footprint, sustainability, and minimalism/non-consumerism.  We're not quite as green as we'd like to be, but we are enjoying the process.  We're both interested in cloth diapering and doing our best to prevent plastic baby crap from entering our home.  It's not going to be easy ... people really like to buy plastic and chemical-laden things as gifts.  Lately I've been getting fired up about standard pregnancy medical procedures, starting with the nurse at the OB's office trying to push me into getting the flu vax.  I'm not totally anti-vax, I just don't understand why I can inject a virus accompanied by a large amount mercury into my body, but can't eat fish or drink diet soda.  She couldn't give me a reasonable answer.  I told my OB I'd really like to deliver by squatting in the corner the the hospital room, without anyone bothering me, but I don't think she believed me.

 

Happy to be here.  lol.gif

EDD:  June 13

Your Age: 26, my husband is also 26

Your General Location:  Minnesota

This babe will be child #?:  1st!


How long have you been TTC:  I guess I would say we've been TTC for 9 months or so (since Jan 2012). We were married in August of 2011 and decided not to try, but we wouldn't prevent either. I have PCOS and never tried to have a child before, so I was curious about how long it would take for us to conceive. After one period in September, I decided to try ovulation suppression with natural progesterone cream in October for about 2.5 months and had a lot of breakthrough bleeding/periods every other week, so I decided to stop the progesterone. Then I started charting in January so I could understand my body better and I really learned so much! I had 1 annovulatory cycle after a couple ovulatory cycles and then I ovulated every cycle after that, although they were irregular and unpredictable. I decided to try the supplement Pregnitude this past July and into my second cycle on it, we conceived! I guess I would say we've been TTC for 9 months or so. 


Tell us a bit about your family (partner, other children, and/or pets):  I don't know what to say right now :). 


Anything else you'd like to share:  I plan to give birth in a birth center, God Willing and I'm sooo excited about it!

The nasal spray is live virus (definitely do NOT get this!), but the injection is killed bug.  Thimerosal is what you need to watch out for.  That's the mercury.  (They use it as a preservative, but they do make thimerosal free vaccines.)  They seriously should be able to give you better answers.  

 

I have to have it, because of where I work, so I chose the injection, thimerosal-free.  But it's totally up to you.

EDD:  June 10th 2013
Your Age: 22 years
Your General Location: The beautiful southern Oregon
This babe will be child #?:  Our very first
Tell us a bit about your family (partner, other children, and/or pets): Happily married! 
Anything else you'd like to share:
 
Newlyweds, lighthearted bets were thrown at our wedding as to how soon we would become parents. We've always hoped to start quickly and we've always envisioned having a fairly large family, God willing. I'm the girl who wanted 6 kids since I could hold a babydoll, I've yet to waver with that desire; but, I'm open to changing my mind. We're two young gardening/farmers who hope to one day own a self-sustainable farm. We drink raw milk, raise our own lambs & chickens, have a well stocked garden and we are about to expand our little family. We don't pretend to have all the answers and like the rest of you, just hope to make the best decisions for ourselves and our child. June, and our darlings will be here in the blink of an eye. 
 
I wish the very best for each of you as we make the journey together. 
 
Cheers,
Crystal Marie

Hi I just wanted to update my due date :) 

Ultrasound put my due date to May 30....it's not that far off from what my guess was, but for some reason I would much rather a May baby than a June baby, lol! So I am holding onto the May DD.  Thanks!

post #126 of 190

You can remove me from the list. I miscarried.

post #127 of 190

My due date has changed from June 15th to the 20th! Not a big leap, but there we are.

 

XOXO,

Huck

Age: 29
Location: Portlandia
This will be our first!
Happened really quick, but having worked in fertility clinics, I was worried, and also super-prepared.
My darling is thrilled
post #129 of 190

Hi, I'm new here! My name is Sarah luxlove.gif

 

EDD: June 15 (gemini)
Your Age: 29 by the due date

Your General Location: SoCal
This babe will be child #?: 2
How long have you been TTC: we got pregnant on the first try (took over a year the first time!)
Tell us a bit about your family (partner, other children, and/or pets): my husband and I have been married since 2007, together since 2006. We have a wonderful 3 yo son (born July 2009), who is completely disinterested in talking about the idea of another LO in the house. We're blessed to have my Dad watch our kid(s) while we work (both full-time), although my dream is to be a SAHM. We have a 6 yo shelter doggy who is AWESOME with our son and knew I was pregnant both times before we did.
Anything else you'd like to share: I'm fairly granola compared to my other mom friends. I'm excited to be a part of this community and be around like-minded women who aren't afraid of being women and doing things the old-fashioned way.

Please remove me (lea2012) from the due date list (June 23) - I started having some bleeding this weekend that got worse yesterday and had an ultrasound today learned today (at 9 weeks) that I've had a miscarriage. I'm simultaneously full of grief and trying to remain hopeful about the future. Thanks and best of luck to everyone on the list.

So sorry for your loss.

Sorry for the recent losses :(

 

I had my early Ultrasound and my EDD is now June 18th instead of June 24th.  It will be interesting to see when this babe decides to come. DH is hoping for a gemini, but we are awfully close to the cancer cusp, so we'll see!

No June baby for me. Wishing you mommies well the rest of your pregnancies smile.gif .

Hi everyone, just joined and wanted to introduce myself!

 

EDD: June 13th

My age: 35

General Location: NYC

Baby will be: #1

How long TTC: I got pregnant on the first try back in February, then miscarried in April. Conceived again 5 months later with this current pregnancy.

A bit about our family: I met my husband online two and a half years ago. We adopted a beautiful black cat, Charlotte, that we found roaming around outside the temple at a family Bat Mitzvah. My husband is a writer and freelance software developer, and I have been teaching children with special needs for 13 years.

Anything else to share: I'm cautiously excited about this pregnancy and looking forward to adding to our family!

Hi I'm not new to Mothering.com but I never posted much but I lurked.  

 

EDD: June 29
Your Age: 30something
Your General Location: KY
This babe will be child #?: 2

We weren't TTC, we weren't even trying to get pregnant so needless to say, this baby is a huge surprise and I'm still in shock.

 

I'm a homeschooling, stay at home Mom to a 5 year old. We live in KY. I'm an AP parent. We have celiac and food allergies and I am also salicylate sensitive.  Our meals are always a struggle.  Right now I'm having terrible heartburn and feeling miserable.  I can't do any of the regular home remedies mostly due to food allergies(can't have ginger, almonds, etc. etc)and the sals sensitivity. If anyone else have similar dietary restrictions, I'd love to talk to you! I'd love to talk to everyone. 

 

My first pregnancy was high risk and we both nearly died during labor. I hope this one will be a breeze!

post #139 of 190
My ladies I bid you farewell. Yesterday at my first appointment my MW could not find a HB and sent me to get a sonogram. There I found out the baby stopped growing at 8 weeks. I'm waiting for things to progress on their own.

I wish you all the best in the next nine months.
