Tentatively poking my head in here. I'm now nearly 9 weeks pregnant. This will be (fingers crossed) first child, third pregnancy. We've had two miscarriages and used IVF to conceive this time after being diagnosed with a complete bilateral tubal obstruction. 


Unlike the last two pregnancies we've had lots of early ultrasounds and we've had the heart beat and fetal poll score text book perfect at 6 weeks and 8/9 weeks this time so we're really hoping this one works out. 


EDD: Feb 16, 2014

So last month, on June 27th I went to be the doula for my sister-in-law.  It was awesome.  She had a perfect, healthy baby boy.  That night going home I got into a car accident.  I was rear-ended.  I went in the following day for a sono, just to "make sure everything was ok" and the baby was perfectly sized (8 weeks 4 days) but had no heartbeat.  A follow-up sono last week confirmed that the baby has no heartbeat and has not grown since the first sono.


This was my fourth pregnancy, but my first loss.  I have taken it for granted that I get pregnant easily, and I carry easily, and I deliver easily.  I am still waiting for this baby to leave me physically.  A missed miscarriage, I've learned, is what it's called.  We're pretty crushed. 


I'll be thinking of you ladies, wishing I was there.  I'm told it's too early to decide, but I don't think I want to have another baby.  This was my fourth child.  I am so sad that he or she won't get to be with me, but I don't think I want a fifth.  Good luck everyone.  Enjoy it!

Hello all!  I hope its not too late to join.  I wanted to wait until I was this far along (about 12 weeks) to join a DD Club.  :)  And here I am.


I'm a first time mom-to-be from the near north Chicago suburban area.  I'm married to a wonderful and supportive man.  I work as a fitness instructor - which I love!  And I hope to continue working out and teaching all my classes as long as I can into my pregnancy.  I love marathoning and distance running - although all the first trimester nausea and fatigue have really put a damper on things!


Let's see... as far as this baby goes I'm planning on a natural hospital birth (although I'm a bit apprehensive about the hospital setting - my health insurance will not cover home birth or a midwife) and will probably hire a doula.  In fact if you know any bilingual (english-spanish) doulas in the Chicago area - please pass it along! :)  I'm also planning on cloth diapering, breastfeeding and giving co-sleeping a try.  I'm also really big on not gendering my child's upbringing.  I'm a bigtime feminist and cannot wait to raise a non-sexist/racist/homophobic child :) Yay!


I'm currently at that awkward "beer belly" stage when it looks like I've just been eating a bit too much.  Lol.  So, that's a little bit about me!  I'm excited to be a part of this group. Glad to get to know you all as well :)
