I think Dec 11th, but it is very very estimated.  We forgot to write down my period in march, so it's assuming 28 days for the previous two cycles.  This was intentional, but we were trying to be laid back about it, since it had been stressful the other two times.  I guess too laid back!  I really, really don't have any interest in a dating ultrasound, so hopefully I am not off by too much.

Like I said: seems just a tiny bit early because I got a clear positive a week ago & my date is the 10 or 12. However of course HCG levels vary & test sensitivity varies. Just sayin b/c a too early due date can mean a lot of stress @ the end . . .

Hey everyone! According to LMP, I'm due 11/26. I tend to go late though, so I'm pretty sure this will be a December baby.

Happy to be here as well! My EDD is 11/30-12/1. My daughter (now 29month old nursling) was born 40weeks 1day. I think my labor with her was brought on by my OB sneakily sweeping my membranes, or I suspect she probably would have cooked a little longer.  Anyways, Im here bc Im not 100% sure of ovulation do to a nursing toddler. We are suuuuper excited! 

Im hoping to avoid the morning sickness I felt with my daughter. So far so good! How are all you ladies feeling?

I have been following along for the last few days as I have been waiting for pregnancy test results from my IVF.  Today my internet cheapie had two lines and the clearblue easy digital test flashed "Pregnant".  I am so happy!  My DH and I have been trying to conceive since 4/7/11 so it is 2 years to the day that it took us to get pregnant. We went down the path of azoospermia where DH had only 25 sperm in SA, froze enough sperm last summer to go for an IVF cycle, then saved our money for the IVF cycle and started that back on March 15, 2013.

 

So my expected due date is December 19, 2013!  This is my first pregnancy so everything is new for me.  In a couple weeks I will find out if I am having twins or not, since two embryos were put back at our IVF procedure.

Congratulations!! Two years is a long while to TTC. I hope you have a beautiful happy healthy pregnancy!

Hello! My name is Mylah.  I'm cautiously optimistic that I'll be able to stick around. I got a BFP yesterday morning after 6 BFNs a week ago, and an "Inconclusive" blood hCG test. I was almost certain that I'm not pregnant and just having a long cycle, but my naturopath told me to go to my MD to take the blood test to "rule out" pregnancy (so I could begin a treatment with her). Now everyone will be watching my levels this week. Nervous and excited. :)

Congrats everyone!

I just got my BFP last night (and again this morning). I was uncertain because the line was very faint, then I looked closer at the instructions... that's the control line. The BFP line was so dark and clear I thought it was the control! orngbiggrin.gif

We're due Dec 12 by LMP, or 17 by ovulation. But my babies almost always go to 42 weeks by LMP, so I'm expecting a Christmas baby. I'm going to talk to my doctor at my first appointment just to make sure he's not going to freak out about that, although I've used him before and don't expect any trouble.

We lost the last two, so we're not telling the kids until we're sure it's sticky. If all goes well, this will be our eighth. Also hopefully a VBA2C.

Got my BFP last week! My EDD is Dec 10th but I've gone to 41 weeks with my last two so I am sure I will again. dec 17th is the full moon you say? Maybe I can talk my hubby into naming it Luna. This is number 3 for us smile.gifjoy.gif

Hi everyone!  I am joining, despite having a lot of nervousness about things. I'm really hoping things work out, as I have had a couple of previous losses in between my two children. So this will be number 3-- my due date is December 1st. We will have a preschooler, toddler and infant when that time rolls around. We haven't even begun to think about what we are going to do about bedrooms, vehicle, etc for our expanding family! One day at a time...

Hello ladies tiphat.gif

 

I've been lurking for a couple of days because I'm too scared to join "too early". BUT right now sitting at work and feeling nauseous and unable to concentrate, it's probably time to actively join instead of lurk smile.gif . If all goes well, I'm due Dec. 7th. DD came one week early and my mother also delivered all of her kids early so I might be carrying a Nov. baby.

 

The nausea started early this time around and my jeans are already tight around my belly.. it's only 5w3d, yikes!

 

Here's to all of us having uneventful pregnancies and healthy babies come December champagne.gif (<-- that's cider, not champagne winky.gif)

Hi all!  Like several others, I was lurking and am feeling a little premature about posting. But, decided what the heck.

 

About me:  39 yo, TTC for 3.5 years.  Decided to skip IUI and go right to IVF.  Successful IVF cycle in June of 2012 (First attempt, 2 embryos transferred, 1 successful, 10 frozen).  At 16 weeks found out via ultrasound that the baby was a boy and likely had spina bifida.  Went to maternal fetal medicine specialist 3 days later.  Confirmed spina bifida as well as deformed heart and limbs not measuring correctly.  Likely diagnosis was Trisomy 18.  Horrible experience.  Lost baby in September 2012.  Had to wait for several months to try again.   Considered doing genetic testing on remaining 10 frozen embryos, but after weeks of discussions with the RE decided the risk of unfreezing and refreezing for testing outweighed moving forward with no genetic testing.  Had FET at end of March.  Transferred 2 embryos.  BPT performed on 4/8/13 - positive with a Bhcg of 186.  Go in for 2nd beta tomorrow.  Keeping fingers crossed things progress normally.  Having CVS at 10 weeks to test for genetic abnormalities (oh, DH and I were both tested and are negative).  Hoping the last pregnancy was just a "fluke".  I am not nearly as excited this time - I don't think I will be until I know everything is okay from CVS test.  Trying not to get my hopes up and have to go through that again.

 

Well, thanks for reading.  Wishing everyone in the December 2013 club the best of luck!

shebrumit - I hope your test reveals a perfect healthy baby this time.

 

I'm in a similar situation - this is my second IVF pregnancy and the first ended in a miscarriage at 12 weeks or so. So, I don't want to get my hopes up too much but I also don't want to be too negative. I'm trying for cautiously optimistic, but mostly hitting crazy and hormonal winky.gif

Hi All:

 

Just poking my head in here and joining. I am feeling a lot more confident about this now that I have heard a HB twice. Plus, I see Laggie, Tenzins, Sila, and Lilac here, so I already have lots of friends here!

 

about me: 38, TTC for 5 years. In those 5 years I have tried it all: 4 failed IVFs, 2 canceled IVFs, 8 IUIs (all injectibles), standing on my head, acupuncture, supplements, "not trying and hoping it works," giving up on the idea of having another baby, etc... We finally got lucky with donor embryos that we know nothing about. I know the occupation, hair color and race of the mother, and occupation and height of the father, and the fact that the embryo was frozen for a very long time, and does have a genetic sibling somewhere in the world - but nothing else. I am due the last day of Nov, but I am joining here because I feel like it will be Dec. I have a 5 1/2 year old DS. Homebirth is illegal in my state, but I am planning one with an "underground" midwife.
